Lipstick - Kylie Cosmetics - Creme Lipstick - Creme Brulee

3.0
Created with Sketch.

7 months ago

Like the previous reviewer, I would not repurchase this particular color from Kylie Cosmetics because it's not the most flattering shade on me, either. It's a cool-toned beige pink. However, the Creme Lipstick formula is fast becoming one of my favorites. It glides on with opaque coverage. Compared to my other lipsticks, the texture is relatively lightweight but does feel somewhat …Read more

Lipstick - Kylie Cosmetics - Creme Lipstick - Crush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

8 months ago

This is a traditional cream lipstick in a tube as opposed to the liquid lipsticks Kylie is known for. In general, I fare better with this sort of lipstick. I have a drawer of liquid lipsticks from various brands that I have given up on because I couldn't get past the crusty look or drying feel. However, I will give Kylie Cosmetics credit for coming up with the Velvet Liquid Lipsticks. I …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Sonia G. - Crease Two

5.0
Created with Sketch.

10 months ago

The Sonia G. brushes have a luxurious look and feel. They are bound by hand in Japan. A few months ago I reviewed the Crease One, which is a beautiful and functional eye brush. Of all the Sonia G. eye brushes I've tried so far, Crease One is my favorite, but I am also enjoying Crease Two.

The Crease Two brush is made of white Saikoho goat hair as opposed to the blue squirrel …

Makeup Brushes - Sonia G. - Smudger Two

4.0
Created with Sketch.

10 months ago

The main difference between this brush and Sonia's Smudger One brush is the type of natural hair used for the bristles. The Smudger One features blue squirrel hair and the bristles of the Smudger Two are composed of Saikoho goat hair. White goat hair is intended for use with both cream and powder products, whereas the blue squirrel bristles of the other brush are only meant to be used with …Read more

Palettes - Natasha Denona - Camel Eyeshadow Palette

4.0
Created with Sketch.

11 months ago

This is a five-pan eyeshadow palette. It's not Natasha Denona's most exciting palette, but it's probably the most wearable. It's appropriate for a day at the office, formal or casual settings, and natural looks.

Arrosto, a very dark brown, is great for the crease and outer V. It does not have an orange or reddish undertone, so it's quite neutral and I …

Loose Powders - Laura Mercier - Translucent Loose Setting Powder

3.0
Created with Sketch.

11 months ago

This is not a horrible powder but I won't buy it again. I have been spoiled by Charlotte Tilbury's Airbrush Flawless Finish Pressed Powder, which I can even use under my eyes because the finish is so natural-looking. Even RCMA's No Color Powder works better for me than Laura Mercier's loose powder, and RCMA is much cheaper. There are many products to love in the Laura …Read more

Eyeliner - Kat Von D - Ink Well Longwear Matte eyeliner

4.0
Created with Sketch.

11 months ago

Most of the eyeliners on the market that claim to be waterproof are really not. They break down, fade, streak, smudge, or even crumble if your eyes water. In the past I've had trouble with Kat Von D's Tattoo Liner. I loved the brush but I could never get the ink to last on my eyes. However, the ink in Kat Von D's Ink Well liner DOES give me a budgeproof line that …Read more

Palettes - TOM FORD - Eye Quad Leopard Sun

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/07/2018

Sometimes you hear people say that Tom Ford’s shadows practically blend themselves, and I do find that to be true of Leopard Sun. The colors seem to melt into one another seamlessly, creating a soft sunset look. Emphasis on SUN. It's warm.

The first shade, top left, is a yellow gold glitter shade. It's fine glitter, but top coats like this can still scatter a bit. I use …

Eyeliner - SHISEIDO - MicroLiner Ink - Brown

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/18/2018

I returned this.

I've been enjoying Pat McGrath's Permagel Ultra Glide Eye Pencils which are very creamy and long-lasting, but they are kind of expensive and you have to sharpen them. I tried Shiseido's MicroLiner Ink eyeliner because it swivels up and doesn't require sharpening. Unfortunately, the color I tried, Brown, was not nearly as pigmented as Pat …

Makeup Brushes - Sonia G. - Crease One

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/27/2018

Sonia G. brushes have a luxurious feel. Each brush is bound by hand with great care by Japanese artisans. The maple handles are kind of thick compared to my MAC, Morphe, or Wayne Goss brushes, and they have a bit of weight to them. According to the company's description on Beautylish.com, they're painted with four layers of pigment and lacquer. They look beautiful standing up in a …Read more
