Mascara - Blinc - Mascara

This is very similar to the Imju Fiberwig mascaras from Japan except with less fiber particles. Their idea is to "tube" your lashes as opposed to coating them as it says on the tube container. Gives me great length but does nothing for thickening. Wore it the whole day without any smearing or raccoon eye issues. And mind you I have very oily lids. Very easy to remove - warm water works …Read more

Lipstick - Dior - Addict Lipstick (All Shades)

Feb/24/2012

I have this in L.A. with the updated formula (Kate Moss ad era). It's a wee bit drying and the wear is not long, as expected with sheer glazey lipsticks, however the color is amazing which for me makes up for the missed points. It looks a typical pink in the tube, but on the lips it's a nice clean, slight sheer pink. It's nice for everyday and will go with a wide range of eye …Read more

BB Cream - Estée Lauder - DayWear BB Anti-Oxidant Beauty Benefit Creme SPF 35

I wasn't really looking for a BB cream, I just wanted a plain tinted moisturizer. The SA offered this to me as an alternative and at first I did not like it. I looked around for a few minutes and it looked much better once it settled on my skin. It felt a little heavy for a TM to me but eventually it became smoother and less sticky. The coverage is good if you have minor facial skin issues …Read more

I bought one of the Holiday 2011 colors called Apparat. It's a dark, muted metallic red on the nail. In the bottle you can see the gold shimmer but on the nails it hardly shows but leaves a really nice sheen. Reminds me of new car metallic sheens.

The formula was great, I only needed 2 coats and the chiseled brush was kind of nice.

I would probably buy another Dior …

Definitely my current HG mascara. I have repurchased a few times even with the high price tag. This product gives more length than volume. I wouldnt be intimidated or bothered with the fibers, just apply slow and steady from base to tip. It doesnt give me raccoon eyes as much as all previous brands Ive used. It also rinses away easily.

Makeup Brushes - EcoTools - Domed Bronzer Brush

Jun/21/2011

This is my first brush from Ecotools. This works well with my Smashbox bronzer, picks up the right amount and blends it nicely (circular motions). I have tried it with pressed powders and it worked too especially in the eye and other angular areas. Bristles are really soft and I love that they're made of taklon - same as Urban Decay which also makes amazing brushes- but these are half the …Read more

Lip Gloss - MAC Cosmetics - Emanuel Ungaro See Thru Lip Colour in Not So Shy!

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/09/2008

I have been a fan of the See Thru collection when it first came out so I was elated to see this as part of the Ungaro collection. It leaves a pinkish-red stain, like you just bit your lips but a little more red. It literally is a stain so do not expect gloss or an even color from it. I like the effect, very versatile with blush or eyeshadow colors. The stain stays longer than most lipsticks and …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Unlisted Brand - Glysomed

One of the best hand creams around. I've tried a lot, L'Occitane, Nivea Creme, Eucerin, Curel, BlissLabs, etc. and this ranks up there on my list. It moisturizes a lot, always leaving my hands very soft AND stays that way until I wash my hands. The scent does not bother me, I think it's a bit neutral already (I know some people don't like it though).

Too bad it …

Lipstick - L'Oreal Paris - Colour Riche in Toasted Almond

Oct/27/2006

I was looking for a good nude shade when I stumbled upon this color. I could say that with my complexion it looks like a mix of neutral nude brown, peach and pink. It's a good everyday color. It's like a tweaked nude lip color. It is not boring but at the same time it is still neutral enough to mix it with other palettes for the other areas of the face. The creamy texture is ok and it …Read more
