Lipstick - Sonia Kashuk - dahlia

4.0

I actually really like this lipstick line, although I agree with other reviewers that it doesn't last as long as some of my other lipsticks do.

Dahlia is a berry metallic, but pretty warm, with kind of a brick tint.

It goes on smooth, and doesn't feel drying or get all over the place for me. It will disappear quickly, but I usually put some pressed powder over my …

Cleansers - Cetaphil - Gentle Cleansing Bar

This is, by far, the best "soap" I've ever used, for face or body.

I have rosacea and extremely sensitive skin - I almost never change products simply because bad things happen when I do. . . This is the only thing I will use on my face year-round.

This removes makeup but doesn't strip my skin of the good oils or make it feel tight or itchy, something …

Eyeliner - TIGI - Big Fat Fun Eye Pencils

Nov/24/2009

I got this as a GWP with a hair product months ago and then decided to use it yesterday, since I was out of my usual brown liner from Cover Girl. Wow, is there a difference! I have this one in the Espresso color, an extremely dark brown.

This eyeliner is creamy, smooth as butter to apply, and doesn't BUDGE! I couldn't believe it - I figured if it was that easy to get on, it …

Scrubs - Soap & Glory - Scrub Your Nose In It

Love, love, love this facial scrub.

Minty fresh scent without being irritating - pore-refining mask - AND a finely textured scrub for your face - I was initially wary of a product that was promising so many things, but I decided to try it and see, since I love their other products.

I swear, my pores looked minimized and almost non-existent immediately after the first use - …

So far, so good. . . .

I ran out of my usual TF foundation and decided to try this one. I purchased Set 1 - Light - as the others came out too dark on me.

I've been really impressed with this one - covers evenly and blends well, matches my skin exactly, and so far has not bothered my very sensitive, very redness/itch-prone skin.

It has a light dewy finish …

Eye Shadow - Maybelline New York - Stylish Smokes in Emerald Smokes

I was suprised and excited by the quality and color-payoff of this quad.

My experience with Maybelline shadows in general is that they are pretty mild in color - and have a lot of fallout-

I found this quad to be buildable - lots of color or not so much, depending on what you use - and though I do notice fallout, expecially with the lighter colors, it was nothing that you …

Lip Gloss - NARS Cosmetics - Stolen Kisses

Oct/07/2009

This is my new favorite lipgloss. It is perfect - I cannot believe it - not too pink, not too brown, with just a hint of shimmer so it's not in that flat, scary "dead nude" family.

I'd had it for several months, having purchased based on the reviews I'd read here - but hadn't tried it, b/c of the crazy amount of other glosses I have - and I can't …

Lipstick - Maybelline New York - Color Sensational Lipstick (All Shades)

Sep/04/2009

I got this in Crazy for Coffee - very lovely color - I think I'd repurchase - if I can get over the taste and smell - it literally nauseates me.

I do like the consistency, color and application of these lipsticks - rival a much more espensive l/s.

Packaging is nice, too.

I just don't like the taste/smell!

Polishes - SinfulColors - merlot

4.0

Aug/25/2009

Love this color - looks exactly like my fav merlot wine with a metallic sheen - Great staying power, doesn't chip, and looks great for work or play.

I do use two coats and topcoat to keep the color rich and perfect, but nothing different than usual.

Plus, this is super cheap, unlike some of the OPI polishes I have, which honestly don't test any better for me …
