Pressed Powders - Hourglass Cosmetics - Ambient Lighting Powder - Dim Light

Mar/01/2013

I was very skeptical about all the hype surrounding the Ambient Powders. How could a powder recreate the specific effects achieved by lighting? Well, skeptic I am no more. Dim Light really does recreate the look you might hope to achieve using a more dim light to blur imperfections. It doesn't make you look sallow or shadowed, though. Instead, it creates this special blurred effect that …Read more

I absolutely adore the Inglot rainbow eyeshadows. They are super-pigmented, smooth as butter, and long-wearing. I honestly can't say enough about these. I own all of the current shades and while some of the neutral ones are a bit redundant, I still think it is worth having each one.

I can't rave enough about Inglot eyeshadows and the freedom palette system. The quality, pigment, wear, and blendability of these shadows completely dwarfs virtually every other eyeshadow I have tried. The colors are vibrant, long-wearing, and numerous. They really have colors for everyone whether you are a neutral lover or wild child. I currently have 2 20-pan palettes and 2 10-pan palettes …Read more

I really, really love this brush. I use this for liquid and cream foundations and it gives an excellent finish and allows me to use quite a bit less foundation than my sponge or more traditional foundation brushes. It is the perfect size to use pretty much everywhere on my face and I find myself using this brush everyday, even at the expense of some of its pricier counterparts. This brush can be …Read more

I have recently become somewhat obsessed with sinful color nail polishes and this particular one is a stunner. It's a beautiful sheer pale pink with tons of gorgeous silvery pink shimmer. It creates a stunning look on the nails and you can't beat the $1.99 price tag.

My, oh, my...what a find. This palette has officially converted me to matte shades. These are some of the richest, butteriest, creamiest, most pigmented shades I have ever used. They are beautiful and they blend like a dream. Despite how creamy they are, they also wear really well. These are an absolute steal at $5. Can't wait to try the rest of the shades in this line.

Aug/01/2009

I can't say enough positive things about this eyeliner. First off, it is a beautiful, vibrant blue that really works with my brown eyes. Secondly, it is very smooth and creamy and it applies like butter. Of course, I was skeptical about how it would wear because overly creamy products tend to fade or smear on my oily lids. However, even though it is rich and creamy when you apply it, it …Read more

I really wanted to love this product because the color is soooo pretty. Unfortunately, even after using a base, it transferred like crazy. After about an hour of wear, the product had moved from my lash line to my eyelid crease. I do have Asian eyes with a hooded crease, but most other liners I use don't move like this. Also, when I used it on my lower lash line, it flaked and fell …Read more

I think this is supposed to be used as a finishing powder, but honestly, the coverage is so great that I use it as a powder foundation. I got it as a BOGOF when I got the Mineral Power Liquid foundation (which I also love) and was pleasantly surprised with how nice it looked both over the liquid and on its own. I immediately went back and bought a few back ups to keep in all my purses. Great …Read more

I have this eyeliner in black and I really like the quality and ease of use. Also, this eyeliner stays put. It is in a felt tip pen form so no messy liquid or too soft brushes to deal with. It is a true jet black and it applies very smoothly.
