Lipstick - MILANI - Color Statement Lipstick (All Colors)

Feb/10/2017

I am a red lipstick lover and have more than a dozen various reds. My most recent purchase is Ruby Valentine and I think it is one of my favorites. It is such a wonderful shade, not too warm or cool toned, just perfect! Since it is vinyl finish, it has a little bit more shine than matte lipsticks from this line, but it is also not creamy as cream finish lipsticks from this line (if you own any …Read more

This is my first contour brush and I don't even need to purchase any other now :) It is good quality (same as any brush from this white brush collection of Wet'n'Wild), quite densely packed and has zero shedding issues. I use it with powder contour and it blends everything nicely. Overall, good value for price, I recommend it!

I personally like this gel. I have normal to dry sensitive skin and it hasn't caused no irritation. I don't think it exfoliates very well, but I would repurchase it even only for how well it cleans my pores. The bottle is quite large, while you need only a small amount for whole face, so it will last quite a while. I use it 1-2 times a week and it considerably reduces the appearance of …Read more

Hello beauties :)
I snatched this wonderful blush on sale. I love blushes and have various colors, but after I purchased this one, that's all I want to wear. It is not too cool and not too warm and looks good with almost any makeup look. It gives a nice sheen without glitter, while staying power is fantastic! One me it stays almost all day, for 7-8 hours. I have normal to dry sensitive …

Feb/10/2017

Good day to you :) I hate writing bad reviews, but in this case it's inevitable!
Bought this lip oil because my favorite Kathleenlights recommended it (in 01 - Almond Coco), saying it smells like 'trpical getaway". Honestly, this is just your standard clear lip gloss with coconut scent, nothing else. This scent is like what chemical coconut would have, like cheap soap, and …

I have this in the shade Luminous, which is a pinky champagne highlighter. It doesn't have any shimmer or glitter, in direct light I can see only microscopic sparkles. On my fair skin with neutral to cool undertone it looks like a beautiful glow. I can apply directly from stick, it doesn't move foundation underneath and blends beautifully. The texture is not oily, but glides easily on …Read more

I have this in Raspberry and Red Berry (this one smells like strawberry and gives a sheer was of color). They saved my lips this winter. When it is freezing outside, the best thing is a thick nourishing lip oil.
I heard about this lip oil from YouTuber Charles Gross (he always recommends good stuff) and then was very lucky to see it on sale for a little more than $11.
So, overall, if …

Lipstick - MILANI - Color Statement Lipstick in Brandy Berry

I like dark lipsticks and it is a real challenge to find one that is not drying or patchy. The majority of dark lipsticks I have are patchy and difficult to apply. This one is a wonderful exception from the rule. It is in pearl finish, which means it has slight sheen. It is not glossy by any means, but catches enough light to add dimension to lips.
Pros:
- beautiful burgundy, deep …

Bronzers - NYC New York Color - NYC Sunny Bronzing Face Powder

5.0

Oct/09/2016

This was my first bronzer and I didn't purchase any new ones since then because I love it so much. It is a must-have for me when I look too pale, it adds just the right amount of warmth to the skin without looking orange. My skin is very fair and has neutral to cool undertone, meaning that choosing face products is a struggle. In the pan, "Sunny" looks downright scary, it is dark …Read more
