Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Love Me Lipstick - Pure Nonchalance

4.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

So far, I really like the Love Me lipsticks. Someone described these to me as "Lustres with longer staying power," and that's relatively accurate. I'm a HUGE fan of MAC Syrup (a Lustre), but it doesn't last more than an hour or so on me. I bought Pure Nonchalance because it's in the same color family (mauve-pink).

After wearing this for a few days, I can …

Eyeliner - Urban Decay - Game Of Thrones 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil - Lannister Gold

5.0

This is gorgeous and a unique color in the UD 24/7 lineup. I'm a huge GOT fan and 24/7 user, so I was really excited to see the LE GOT 24/7 e/ls. I get a bit nervous about special collaborations, but this color is really fantastic.

For reference, I'm NW15 with dark blonde hair and blue eyes. Golds can be tricky for me to pull off--if they're at all orange-y, I end up …

Eye Shadow - Unlisted Brand - Smith & Cult Glitterbaby Metallic-Shift Eyeshadow

4.0
Created with Sketch.

6 months ago

This is advertised as a liquid e/s that allows you to smoke it out or pack the color on. I'd agree with that.

The colors are gorgeous--they're bright (Iris) and very sparkly at first, but if they're smudged at all, they blend out to black. True to the name, they are very glittery, with loads of micro glitter. The smoky effect makes the glitter much less noticeable. You …

Eye Shadow - TOM FORD - Nude Dip

I was lucky enough to find this at a CCO for $33. I'd gladly pay that again for this gem. I'm not sure it's worth the $88 at Sephora, though.

This is a fantastic palette that gives me a polished, neutral, barely-there-makeup look. The colors are nicely pigmented and don't lean too warm or too cool on me (I'm NW15/cool undertones with blue eyes). It's truly …

Styling Products - Moroccanoil - Luminous Hairspray

2.0
Created with Sketch.

6 months ago

This pains me--I'm a big MoroccanOil fan and use the shampoo, conditioner, and light oil regularly. Thinking that the hairspray would be along the same lines, I decided to try it. The two things that keep me coming back to the MoroccanOil line: their product smell amazing and keep my fine, color-treated hair healthy.

The Luminous Hairspray smelled awful, like a mix of chemicals …

Lip Treatments - Fresh - Sugar Rose Lip Treatment SPF 15

3.0
Created with Sketch.

6 months ago

I'm on the fence about this. I love balm-like sunscreens, as opposed to greasy ones. The Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment got my usually chapped and angry lips through the winter, so I decided to try the SPF version for Spring/Summer.

The good: it feels great on my lips. It doesn't apply as evenly or thickly as the untinted, non-SPF Lip Treatment, but it's not bad either. The …

Liquid - COVER FX - Custom Cover Drops

4.0
Created with Sketch.

9 months ago

I can't say that I'm surprised to see a mix of ratings for this--it seems like it requires a lot of work for a concept that's pretty simple. These are pigment drops that can be added to just about anything for foundation-like coverage. I think the success or failure of this depends entirely on how well the Cover FX drops work with whatever "base" they're blended …Read more

Moisturizers - Tula - Hydrating Day & Night Cream

4.0
Created with Sketch.

9 months ago

Winter and prescription retinoids have left my face raw and angry. My skin is generally dehydrated and oily, and in the summer and fall I can usually get away with a light moisturizer. After stopping for some foundation and freaking out a salesperson with my flaky, irritated skin, she recommended Tula's Hydrating Day & Night Cream. I was skeptical (and still am, to some extent), but it …Read more

Styling Products - Dyson - Airwrap hair styler

4.0

10 months ago

This is unbelievably expensive for what it is, and some of the tools aren't worth the money. That said, the tools that I love, I *really* love, which is why I gave this a 4/5. Is it worth >$500? No.

A little about me: I really suck at doing my hair. No, really. I can sort of blow out my hair and it looks marginally better, but doing my hair is not my greatest talent …

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Dazzleshadow Liquid - Not Afraid To Sparkle

2.0
Created with Sketch.

12 months ago

I love Stila Glitter and Glow and Shimmer and Glow shadows and was excited that MAC was coming out with a similar product. I decided to try Not Afraid to Sparkle, because I'm a 40-something woman who can't get enough sparkle (hey--don't judge me).

This is very sheer with lots of glitter--it's indeed very sparkly. You can barely see the beige base after applying it …
