Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Blush - Sex Appeal

4.0

Apr/22/2012

This Blush colour from NARS needs a genuine CAVEAT EMPTOR: I.e., if you read the reviews below from all the lovely & enthusiastic women who just want to help you enjoy what they, too, enjoy & feel pretty about... well, while you ARE reading something very heart-warming in all those reviews below, you STILL aren't necessarily being given --&/or grasping -- the most important …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Satin Lipstick - Retro

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/27/2009

For some reason I haven't worn my Mac "Retro" in months, silly me -- & thus what a happy rediscovery tonight when I decided on mere whim to pull it out and apply it again! A lovely Reviewer below notes that this superb colour looks fabulous on warm-toned fair skin -- and I can now add with happy passion that cool &/or neutral--toned fair white skin looks stunningly …Read more

Blush - Bobbi Brown - Poppy

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/20/2009

I haven't tried a Bobbi Brown blush in many years, so I'd forgotten what kind of quality is involved in its making -- plus now that I'm having an all-out mad passionate love affair with the new-to-USA, highly divergent blushes from Illamasqua, one would think the last thing I need do is also try a BB blush, lol/groan! But -- just as the wonderful reviewers point out below -- those …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Perricone MD - Ceramic Skin Smoother Finishing Serum

Created with Sketch.

Aug/07/2009

I've got really easy-going skin that doesn't get upset, stressed out, or even weird-ed out by various screwy products, hormal shifts, or anything else for that matter -- & has never had any blemishes, either. (And ohhhh you betcha, i AM on my knees w/ gratitude! What a roll of the genetic dice!....) Thus sho' 'nuff, my skin's just the plain ol', proverbial …Read more

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Blush - Orgasm

Jul/22/2009

EASY RULE FOR THIS ITEM: DON'T BUY THIS PARTICULAR BLUSH WHERE YOU CAN'T RETURN IT / CAN'T GET YOUR MONEY BACK ! That's really common sense about most cosmetic products, but never moreso than with this over-hyped "Nars bar": hence ordering from Sephora, Nordie's, Bloomie's & other such places makes ALL ze difference. # 2: If you're not going to …Read more

Makeup Brushes - MAC Cosmetics - #217 Blending

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/22/2009

This particular MAC 217 was so poorly designed & poorly made i had to send it back from whence it came (Mac Online) -- so thank goodness for their very generous return policy. Eye shadow application, aka "shading" (as well as crease work, AND blending, AND anything else, for that matter!) w/ this brush absolutely stank, & I mean no matter HOW carefully & skillfully they …Read more

Lips - NARS Cosmetics - Lip Stain Gloss in Indian Red

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/07/2009

FABULOUS, FABULOUS, FABULOUS! Nars "Indian Red" is ALL about the "class" in "Classic"; and I can't say it any better than that: so please do read the reviews of other MUA'ers below such as those by "MissMojito", "GraceSlick", & "AdmiralCharlie". These 3 women have, in particular, REALLY described this unique NARS product …Read more

Lipstick - NARS Cosmetics - Pigalle

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/07/2009

Naw.... NOT the HG for me. I agree with the many reviewers a few steps below here -- including 1 "Top Reviewer" -- who find this particular NARS lipstick to be (1) much too drying, even WITH balm underneath it (unlike some of his others, which are just fine), and (2) not at ALL a "pink chocolate" colour despite its imitative claims: neither in the tube nor upon the lips. …Read more

Highlighters - MAC Cosmetics - Mineralize Skinfinish in Perfect Topping (2009) [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/07/2009

LEAVE IT TO MAC TO'VE ALREADY DISCONTINUED THIS ONE! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?!?!? Yes.... it's sad but true. I have 4 back-up boxes of it, luckily, because it is so beautiful one cannot afford to NOT have it (& I mean for the rest of one's life, if possible!). I figure 4 should last a VERY long time since it takes so little of this to achieve that perfect, subtle glow. Yet for …Read more

Concealers - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Sculpt [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/01/2009

I'm surprised by all the so-so reviews of this Concealer, because it works so perfectly for me -- & despite the various complaints below about it being either "thick" or "heavy", I'm NOT a "heavy makeup" person whatsoever (perferring a "natural look") & I don't find this product heavy AT ALL !!! In fact, I didn't even use …Read more
