Hair Treatments - Phyto - Phyto 9

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/04/2009

Wonderful product! I was using a Garnier Fructis styling milk before, but when I tried Phyto 9, I saw a clear difference. Phyto 9 left my hair much, much softer and somewhat smoother than the Garnier. my hair also became less greasy over time with Phyto 9, which is important for me. I did not observe a significant difference in shine or moisture.

A few comments: only a tiny drop is …

Eye Primer - ARTDECO - Eyeshadow Base

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/04/2009

I lived in Paris for two months this summer, so, as a true MUA, I of course bought one of these suckers. While I'm not horribly disapointed by it, I do see that it is clearly worse than UDPP. As a test, I one on my right eye and the other on the left one, and the UDPP side outperformed in these ways:

1). Art Deco primed eyeshadow began fading within an hour, while UDPP primed …

Treatments (Face) - La Roche-Posay - Effaclar K

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/04/2009

I bought this cream while in Europe because I ran out of my beloved (and dearly missed) Retin-A. Effeclar K did nothing to prevent me from breaking out all over again or from developing blackheads and uneveness in tone. However, I maintained relatively smooth skin otherwise, though I have no idea if that is due to this product.

All of this is to say that Effeclar K is worse than …

Fragrances - Serge Lutens - Santal Blanc

4.0

Aug/04/2009

This is a very enjoyable, pleasant scent on paper. I can smell the sandalwood, and it is light and woodsy and accompanied by Lutens' typical (and overrated, in my opinion) sweet syrup smell. I was considering buying it for a while before I realized that, first, it does not last more than a few hours on me, and second, once it actually hits my skin, it becomes sadly unremarkable and, dare I …Read more

Eye Shadow - MILANI - Wild Violets Quad

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/13/2009

This quad has great colors in it, which apply nicely on the eyes, but it has one crucial flaw, and that is a lack of staying power. The colors are a very pale lavender, a bright pink purple with a blue purple duochrome effect, a simple medium purple, and a dark burgundy. All of them have fine gold shimmer (quite moderate) and have excellent, strong pigment. In addition, the colors blend together …Read more

Lip Gloss - L'Oreal Paris - HIP Jelly Balm [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/13/2009

These are awesome balms! I own these in the red color, called Delectable, and the dark berry color, Luscious. Delectable is very nice for everyday use, as it's sheer enough to not be "too much" for casual wear. I have pale skin, and in my experience, pale cool skins need some rosiness on the lips to look healthy and fresh. I've very rarely seen nude colors look good on pale …Read more

Eye Shadow - Urban Decay - Heist

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/05/2009

Amazing, amazing HG eyeshadow! I've been interested in UD shadows for a while now, as I kept hearing how great they were. Additionally, whenever I swatched them in store, they always glided on the way I envision all shadow should glide on; the texture is less hard/dry than MAC, less soft and crumbly than Stila, more pigmented than Bobbi Brown. The matte shades feel like the finest velvet. In …Read more

Lipstick - L'Oreal Paris - Color Riche Star Secret Aishwarya Beige

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/14/2008

This is not a good color for pale people. The entire point of a nude lipstick is to be "natural" by blending into the skin. This one is much too brown to not clash with pale skin, regardless of whether it has yellow or pink undertones. I don't doubt though, that it could look great on medium or even dark skintones, depending on what look you're going for. The texture of the …Read more

Liquid - REVLON - Beyond Natural Skin Matching Makeup SPF 15

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/09/2008

This is very nice. Ever since my skin stopped breaking out (so... a month ago), I've been using this for its light coverage and long-lasting powers. It provides enough coverage to even everything out, cover up pores, and hide small variances in skin color and texture, which I have from faded acne scars, but not enough to hide actual acne scars (even small ones). It leaves behind a smooth …Read more

Lip Treatments - Jane Cosmetics - Be Pure Mineral Lip Balm

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/20/2008

Love these! New HG type of love, too. I used to be addicted to Burt's Bees honey balms, but after using Jane, BB seems so much more dry and waxy. In comparison to these, BB doesn't go on smoothly and doesn't really feel like it moisturizes, just that it coats and protects. That may be good against hard winter winds, but not so great for basic dryness. Jane balms feel very smooth …Read more
