Eye Shadow - Charlotte Tilbury - Starry Eyes to Hypnotize Eyeshadow Palette (LE)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

4 days ago

A month ago, Charlotte did a one-day sale of this LE palette online and as of yesterday, this palette has officially dropped at all Charlotte Tilbury counters. Her ads and models are always stunning, but when I swatched it at Bloomingdale's... I knew instantly I had to have it. My concern was that it wouldn't suit my skintone (light medium, cool yellow) but THEY ALL DID. Each and every …Read more

Palettes - Laura Mercier - Extreme Neutrals Eyeshadow Palette

5.0
Created with Sketch.

4 days ago

This palette suits me fine -- but I can see why there are conflicting opinions on this product!

Normally I use my fingers to apply shadow and use brushes for specific looks. The Extreme Neutrals palette is one of those palettes where you need both tools (fingers and brushes) depending on whether you're using a matte shade, or a pearlescent shade. Ratio to mattes and pearls are half …

Lipstick - L'Oreal Paris - Rouge Signature Parisian Sunset Matte Colored Ink

Despite all my self-imposed limitations, I always love buying lipstick. I just do. "I Amaze" is an AMAZING burnt-orange-red that makes me think of brisk air, cinnamon candles, PSLs, and autumn. I love this shade, it stood out to me from the rest and I wouldn't mind picking up a few others!

This is a liquid lipstick that is more gel-like than creamy, which I surprisingly …

Treatments (Face) - KORA Organics - Kora Organics Noni Glow Face Oil

2.0

I think the biggest selling point of this product is that it was produced by Miranda Kerr. Otherwise for a $70 oil, it's doesn't do much for me and I'm much happier with my $10 argan oil from Physician's Formula. It also gave me acne which is a huge N-O from this gal.

Eye Shadow - CHANEL - LES BEIGES Healthy Glow Eyeshadow - Medium

3.0
Created with Sketch.

7 days ago

I very much wanted to like this, but the performance was subpar and the eyeshadow look would completely disintegrate after 3-4 hours. This Les Beiges compact comes with a built-in mirror, 5 shades (4 pearl, 1 shimmer), and 2 luxury applicators. The packaging is absolutely stunning -- but the product itself doesn't perform very well. The eyeshadows are silky but VERY crumbly -- I use my …Read more

Makeup Brushes - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Beautifully Bare Blending Brush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

7 days ago

This is my go-to brush for contouring -- the edges taper but the overall shape allows to blend out sharp edges and give you a "shadow" instead of a streak! I've been using this brush for about 2+ years, and I have zero complaints whatsoever! Even after 2 years, I haven't experienced the bristles falling out.

Brows - Hourglass Cosmetics - Brow Sculpting Pencil in Dark Brunette

5.0

8 days ago

Gives great definition, drama and is very buildable -- doesn't come on too dark or too light and you can fill in the spaces in your brows with ease. I don't use anything else with this except a clear gel to set my brow hairs in place, and in photos I can see a difference in how my brows look vs. using brow powders. Looks natural too -- doesn't give you those scary block brows!

Skincare - Body - Darphin - All-day Hydrating Hand and Nail Cream

4.0

9 days ago

Not bad, not bad. This hand cream doesn't contain shea butter which is what I usually look for to moisturize skin elsewhere on the body that's not my face, however it does contain squalane as I've discovered! Either way, this formulation isn't greasy so you don't leave prints everywhere (ahem, Lush's Charity Pot) and there's a soothing aloe-like scent. Almost …Read more

Masks - LUSH - BB Seaweed Fresh Face Mask

Holy schnozz!

One of my friends got this mask and I got a sample of this to try out -- after rinsing off the mask I could IMMEDIATELY feel that my skin bounced and was absolutely hydrated. The texture of my skin is amazing, supple, and firm. Definitely going back to buy this.

Moisturizers - Bobbi Brown - Vitamin Enriched Face Base

5.0
Created with Sketch.

9 days ago

With fall in full swing, nights are starting to get a little nippy and chilly and that leads to intense dehydration when I wake up in the morning. So, recently I've been toying around with the idea of double-moisturizing (the first moisturizer as skincare and then the second layer as extra oomph and sealing in the goodness from the first moisturizer, while providing a protective layer …Read more
