Polishes - MAC Cosmetics - Bad Fairy (LE)

I love the color of this nail polish. It is raspberry red with a copper sheen to it. However, the brush was wiry and hard to use, and it was also messed up. The formula is very thin, it took at least 3 coats to get an opaque color on my nails. But, the polish wore well. I had little chipping after 3 days but moderate tip wear. I will not be repurchasing this, despite the lovely color.

Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Matte Blush - Bite Of An Apple (Venomous Villains)

I actually really love the packaging, as I am a huge fan of Disney movies. That was the number one draw for me in the beginning, but then I saw the color and how nice a red-peach it was and it is really unique. I was expecting a highly pigmented, difficult to work with blush, but this is actually easy to apply and it blends very well. It looks like a natural flush on my NW20 skin. I highly …Read more

Powder - NARS Cosmetics - Powder Foundation

I feel like I paid an awful lot for this for not much product. As far as the product itself goes, I was really expecting more of a medium-to-full buildable coverage, and I got more of a light-to-medium coverage. This does have a tendency to cake a little as the day goes on if you have oily skin. This was not my favorite of powder products, so I don't think I will repurchase. I use it as …Read more

Eye Shadow - Kat Von D - Metal Orchestra Palette

I love the Kat Von D palettes. This one has a series of beautiful blue and gray hues. I only wish there were a lighter blue in addition, because the brightest blue in this palette is still fairly dark on me. However, the colors are highly pigmented and they last all day with no fallout. I haven't really used the cream one because I like using a different primer potion, but other than …Read more

This is a cool slightly brownish light gray. The thing I like least about it is that it doesn't give an opaque finish after just 2 coats, which is what I was expecting of this color. Also, the formula is a bit streaky. But once you have it on, it doesn't chip easily and it looks good on my NW20 skin tone. No major complaints.

Lips - Tarte Cosmetics - Natural Lip Stain (New Jumbo Pens)

I own this is Joy (coral) and Amused (hot pink). I find that the staining power of this is lacking to a degree, but is still effective. Mostly I like them as lip glosses more than a stain. They are easy to apply, hard to mess up, and the color lasts a few hours. I wish they were more of a stain, but I still like them nonetheless. Also, the packaging in my opinion is awesome.

Eyes - Sue Devitt - Eye Intensifier in Victoria Falls

This is a lovely navy pencil that really makes the whites of your eyes pop and look brighter. The pencil is a little difficult to apply if it isn't sharpened absolutely perfectly, and it does smudge easily which for some might be a good thing but I find that when I use it as a liner, it smudges onto my lid or under my eye and gives me raccoon eyes. I still love the color enough that I will …Read more

I use this product in the lightest shade on my NW20 skin. I use it in my undereye circles to brighten them up, and this makes my whole face look more awake. The only qualm I have with this is that I wish it were more thick and more pigmented, more like a paste. Maybe it wouldn't be as blendable as it is now, but I feel like I would be getting better results if it were more like paste. …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Paint - Bare Canvas

Sep/16/2010

I really love to use this product as a primer. It is the perfect "bare canvas" on my NW20 skin. It helps my eyeshadows last all day without creasing. It takes some getting used to to use it, but once you figure it out, it's a breeze to use. I use about 2 pinheads worth of product-- very little-- and spread that over my entire lid. It blends more easily the less product you …Read more

This is a very pretty medium lavender with a slight sheen to it. It applies easily and the color lasts all day with no fallout and it doesn't crease. However, I find that it is not very pigmented and therefore needs heavy application before the color shows adequately on my NW20 skin. I wish it were more heavily pigmented, but other than that, this is a nice shadow. I wear it all over my …Read more
