Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Unlimited Mascara (Waterproof)

3.0

1 month ago

I have hooded, oily lids and I work in retail. Most mascara smudges on me mid-way through my shift and I only wear it on my top lashes, generally.

This mascara is very black, gives a rather dramatic effect, and uses a plastic brush that isn't too large for my eyes.

It also smudges on me (not all days but 70% of them) and is very, very difficult to remove, even with …

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Professional Remarkable Mascara

This mascara has a bristle brush which I always appreciate. It's a fairly wet mascara when first opened and a bit fume-y to my eyes.

The mascara gives a lovely, fluttery, open-eyed look. Very pretty and on the natural side.

However, I bought this looking for a long-lasting mascara for my retail work job. Unfortunately, this does smudge on me a bit over half way to three …

Lip Liners - Unlisted Brand - Nudestix - Lip + Cheek Color

I wasn't sure about this when I arm swatched it, I wad afraid it might be like the Clinique chubby sticks: too sheer&too slippery.

Thankfully it wasn't.  This is a light slighly browned nude.  It is quite similar to UD Liar, less opaque, settles a bit more, and a bit stickier.  That stickiness helps keep it from smearing arouns (not like the Clinique …

Lipstick - Bite Beauty - Amuse Bouche Lipstick - Chai

I didn't think I'd like this (recieved in a Sephora set).  It is quite brown and at full strength it is a bit dark and not super-great on me.  Applied to midlip and smeared out with a finger tip results in a rosier brown that is quite lovely.  It is a bit drying (my lips got flakey) which is odd considering the high oil content.

Review for Vice formula.

This goes on smoothly and is slightly lighter and browner than my lips.  On initial application it looks tan but it becomes more rosy over time.  No gathering in lip lines (a first for this kind of shade for me), bleeding or feathering.  Slightly moisturizing and doesn't get in my teeth!  A lovely non-chalky color with some luminosity in an EXCELLENT cream …

The same fantastic cream formula as Liar.  Great adherence, smooth application, but no slippery issues (teeth, feathering, sheering out etc.) once applied.  And the color is just gorgeous - it is a mlbb pink nude on me.  This is a bit drier than Liar but not dehydrating.  I just love this one!!!

Smashbox Stepping Out - 100 pt sample from Sephora.

This is a smooth, creamy formula - it feels similar to Sephora Cream Lip Stains but feels a bit plusher.  The applicator is soft and flexible.  Formula does transfer onto cups etc. but not onto teeth.  Holds up fairly well - typical reapplication after food.  I didn't find this drying.

The color is so deadening on me …

I recieved a mini of this from Sephora, it isn't the type of color I have any experience wearing. It is a very warm, brown-pink. It's actually a very lovely formula - smooth and creamy but doesn't get on my teeth or gather in lip lines. Good adhesion and opacity.

I've included a picture of me wearing it (dark hair), I'm a light-yellow-cool-olive NC20/C2 type …

Palettes - MILANI - Everyday Eyes Eyeshadow Collection - All Shades

4.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

I have this on Must Have Naturals. I use it with primer (hooded, oily lids) and it lasts well. This one little palette makes a good travel palette for everyday eye makeup and the larger shade can be used as a face highlighter as well. The only thing that would make it better is a matte cream for brow bone highlighting.

Shade 1:
A golden-leaning champagne shimmer - very similar in …

Had a sample made for me.of shade 05 Crepe: a light, cool yellow based shade. Lippies for that.

Sadly this settled/pooled in my open nose pores and had poor adhesion there as well (combo skin, nose is shiny). If I plan to wear a tinted moisturizing I'm not going to be fussed with application, primers, etc. If I can't slap it on with my hands, no go.

A previous …
