Palettes - Urban Decay - Vice 3 [DISCONTINUED]

Created with Sketch.


I am a big fan of the "Vices" , I was excited to get my mitts on this. First off the palette packaging is gorgeous, metallic silver and chartreuse with a metallic lime green jewel type 3-D logo. Also the zippered bag that it comes in is a nice touch. It features a magnetic closure and a nice large mirror. A brush is included as well. It's not amazing but will come in handy here and …Read more

Scrubs - Michael Todd True Organics - Tropical Fruit Enzyme Exfoliant Scrub

Created with Sketch.


My first order from this company and I am very impressed with the quality of the products.
This scrub is awesome, to me it smells like fresh donuts, to each is own I guess? ;)
The texture is nice and delicate I feel like I am getting a decent exfoliation with out
a harsh gritty texture in other exfoliant products. My other favs are Jack Black and Laura Mercier (sp?) scrubs. The …

Lip Gloss - MAC Cosmetics - Alluring Aquatics lipglass in Water Deities

Created with Sketch.


From MAC's Alluring Aquatics summer 2014 LE collection. Features metallic teal special packaging with water droplets effects. I ordered online and may have passed in person
there is a frosty metallic quality to this lipglass that is a bit much. It kind of reminds me of a past LE Chromeglass in Uberpeach.
It is lovely but I may return it on account of the frost factor. It is a …

Primer/ Corrector - Tarte Cosmetics - Colored Clay CC Primer

Created with Sketch.


It's an ok product. I thought about returning it. The price is not sensible for what it is. It does give a nice smooth natural finish to my skin when worn alone, however it only lasts a few hours and it fades. I see a pore smoothing effect, not so much of a color correction effect that it claims to achieve. It is suitable to be worn alone for a nice soft natural look, just don't forget …Read more

Pressed Powders - Hourglass Cosmetics - Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant

Created with Sketch.


I had to return this because the more I wore it the more I noticed it was pulling very orange-toned on me. Also the shimmer appeared a little more grainy than I preferred, all though the texture with my other Ambient Lighting Powders is very smooth. Also I have had three of the Ambient Lighting Powders and I have had problems with the mirrors inside all of them. They are constantly mis aligned …Read more

Masks - Boscia - Luminizing Black Mask

Created with Sketch.


I tried a sample of this a long time ago, a regular
sized sample is not enough, as you need a lot of this product
to get the correct even layer for it to peel off properly.
I picked up a tube of it on a whim at the Sephora VIB sale.
It is a small tube for the price and you do need A LOT of
product for one application, I also used it on my neck.
It dried in about 30 …

Mascara - benefit Cosmetics - They're Real Lengthening Mascara

Created with Sketch.


It's OK. I received a gift size for my bday gift at Sephora. I like
the dramatic lashes it gave me, however the brush was horrible
in my opinion, way too stiff and poke-y. The brushes plastic bristles
were all most spike like and painful when I tried to get a really
close application at the base of my lashes.
The formula is a little too thick and clumpy for my …

Palettes - Urban Decay - Vice 2 [DISCONTINUED]

Created with Sketch.


I haven't picked up a UD palette in a long time, this one seemed
different yet the same as their usual releases. It's quite colorful
across the board and you should not get tired of this quickly.
A lot of shimmer in this palette, shimmery jewel tones seem to
dominate. I am not a fan of the pink shadows, or the several iterations of black shadows and this has a few …

Eyeliner - MAC Cosmetics - Kohl Power - Mystery

Created with Sketch.


This one is from the Night Divine 2013 winter collec. It applies
well with a nice soft smudgy texture. A nice blackened teal
green. Reminds me of an old Chanel eyeliner from the 90's
that was fabulous except the color of that one was off the charts.
The problem with this pencil is the smudge factor it does'nt quite
set and was smudged near my tear ducts within a …

Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Lavish Living Mineralize Blush

Created with Sketch.


New and LE with the Divine Night winter 2013 collection.
At first I thought this was too dark, in the pan it looks
like a crazy shimmering silver,plum purple planet. I am very fair so don't be
afraid pale ladies this can work for you.
My artist swirled a light amount which
left a subtle plummy pink glow. Very
fall and wintery! She then built it
up and …
