Polishes - Butter London - Knees Up

5.0

Sep/18/2014

I have dozens of red polishes in my collection, but Knees Up is my favorite. The other reviews are accurate when they say it's satin in a bottle! When I'm wearing it I cannot stop looking at my nails. And I've found that for me it lasts over 2 weeks with minimal chipping. Bravo, Butter London.

Blush - REVLON - A Floral Affair Sheer Powder Blush - Hushed Blush

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/01/2009

I bought this also at 50% off at my local CVS. The packaging is very pretty with the solid clear case and floral pattern in the blush. I like the 2 darker colors mixed on my NW20 skin. The color is very sheer, but for me this is a good thing. I use the lighter color as a highlighter and I have also used it on my browbone as a highlighter and I like it. The powder itself is a bit dry. It makes my …Read more

Contour - Stila - Contouring Trio [DISCONTINUED]

Dec/30/2008

I found this little gem on a recent trip to Costco. It comes in 2 color choices, 'cool' and 'warm'. I chose the cool for my NW20 skin. This was my third time trying to contour and I have found a winner! The shades are so pretty and versatile! The colors looked great as contouring and as a lighter smoky eye. BONUS, it came with 2 lip color pencils which are smooth, sheer, and a …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Sonia Kashuk - Blending brush - tapered [DISCONTINUED]

Dec/14/2008

I love this brush! I have been searching for a crease brush that could actually blend out my crease shadows instead of it *looking* like I *tried* to blend them out. I love dark colors and even MAC's beloved 217 could never give my tiny almond-shaped eyes the airbrushed look I wanted even with tons of blending. This brush is great because it can pick up a lot of color and is great for sheer …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Flash Color in Bright Red 750

4.0

Dec/09/2008

Ok, so I got a sample of this at Sephora and I really like it. The color is BOLD to say the least. Flash color is a bit on the greasy side but I love that it is so blendable. I love wearing bright colors and this worked great with MAC's Fluidline in Blacktrack over it. I just wish it wasn't so expensive. I used it simply on my lid and blended it up into the crease. Bright red is a true …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Pro Longwear Paint Pot - Painterly

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/05/2008

I love MAC Paint Pots, and this is one color I use almost every day. It is the perfect nude color for my NW 20 skin. I have hyperpigmented lids and it looks like I am always wearing maroon colored shadow, but this color creates a perfectly nude lid ready for whatever shadow I want to apply! In order to have a flawless application on my older dry lids, I need to make sure my lids are well hydrated …Read more

Eye Shadow - Urban Decay - Deluxe Eyeshadow - Honey

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/30/2008

I first tried this in the Deluxe palette - it is the one shadow out of the palette I *want* to wear every day. The texture is so smooth and satiny, and the sheen is so gorgeous on my inner corners. I hated all gold shadows (I am a MAC NW20 very fair with pink undertones) until Honey. I am going to buy a full size just to keep with me for touch ups. I have paired it with blues, greens, purples …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - CLINIQUE - Pore Minimizer Instant Perfector [DISCONTINUED]

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/26/2008

My Clinique SA gave me a week's worth of this *and* the other Pore Perfecting cream to try out. The cream was just meh, but this is definitely HG material for me. Just a couple of small swipes and my skin is a smooth canvas, ready for makeup. I only use it where the pores are larger, and it mattifies also. One lippie off for the way it made my bronzer streak. I am sure I just need to blend …Read more

Fragrances - Stella McCartney - Stella Eau de Parfum Roll-On

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/23/2008

First let me say, I hate most amber scents and most rose scents. But oh my do I love Stella! I spritzed it on and just couldn't for the life of me put my finger on what I was smelling. It is warm, romantic, spicy, and kind of earthy in a way. I am at a loss because Stella contains my 2 least favorite scent notes, but I can't get enough. Must be the peony and Mandarin. This little …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Burt's Bees - Doctor Burt's Res-Q Ointment

This is a great smelling herbal salve that I mainly use for hangnails and bugbites. It smells great and really soothes the stinging associated with these ailments! I have also used it on my mild eczema when it is red and irritated and it helps soothe it during the night. And I love the little tin it comes in.
