Lipstick - NYX Professional Makeup - Pin-up Pout in Corset

5.0

Yesterday

Most cool nudes make me look, well, kinda zombie-ish. This one doesn't! It's great for a muted look but still has the barest hint of pink to liven up my lips. Really creamy formula, too -- it has a sort of satin-matte finish that's very comfortable to wear and is easy to touch up. These are a seriously underrated part of NYX's lip products.

Lipstick - Too Faced - Peach Kiss Moisture Matte Long Wear Lipstick

4.0

29 days ago

I ended up decluttering this because it was similar to another shade I had, but otherwise didn't have any complaints. It has nice pigment and feels creamy going on, and the squarish shape of the bullet made it easier to get a precise application. The packaging is beautiful and weighty so you really feel like you have a luxurious product. However, I didn't find this very moisturizing as …Read more

Pressed Powders - No7 - Airbrush Away Translucent Finishing Powder

3.0
Created with Sketch.

1 month ago

I can’t say I see a difference in performance between this and . . . well, any other pressed powder I’ve tried. I think you’re paying for the packaging here — and to be fair, it’s genuinely nice! The compact looks modern if a little bulky for throwing in your purse, and the mirror can obviously still be used when the powder itself is gone. I don’t think I would keep coming back to this when I’ve …Read more

Would love to buy this again if only it didn’t appear UD is discontinuing it . . . I prefer a natural highlight and this really fits the bill. It has a fine shimmer that doesn’t veer into metallic territory and it’s so easy to just dot onto the face and blend out with fingers. I wouldn’t have chosen the shade Luminous had I known about the gold in it, but as it turned out, it was barely …Read more

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Exhibitionist Mascara

4.0

I’ve come to rely on CoverGirl mascaras for a long time and this one is no exception. It gives a slightly more dramatic effect than my usual Clump Crusher but still looks really nice for everyday wear and doesn’t smudge. I wasn’t a huge fan of the brush shape (comparable to Too Faced Better Than Sex or L’Oreal Lash Paradise) but I got used to it over time.

Blush - Glossier - Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Color

5.0

The hype is justified! As far as liquid blushes go, this is the product to beat. A (very!) pigmented but buildable formula in six gorgeous shades so every skin tone has both warm and cool options. I’m fair-skinned but took a chance on Storm, and I’m glad I did because it’s the perfect shade to mimic a winter flush. I’d also argue it’s the most versatile one too, as a tiny dot is all I need but it …Read more

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Blush - Orgasm

This is the blush that got me back into blush (thanks, NARS!). I never fully fell in love with it, however. The peachy-pink shade is certainly flattering, and though I understand the complaints about the pigment and hard pan, I was never bothered by dipping my brush in a bit more because I have a heavy hand with blush. No, I think it was the gold shimmer than made me lose interest -- I like a …Read more

My first and likely last contour product. Nothing against this blush -- it's perfectly fine but I kept pulling it out of my stash and putting it back for the better part of a year, waiting for that magical moment when contour application would "click" for me (never did). I wasn't the biggest fan of the cool, muddy color to begin with and find myself gravitating more towards …Read more

Lipstick - ColourPop - Matte Lux Lipstick (All Shades)

3.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

I don't have a lot of complaints about this lipstick but I also don't think it stands out against its competitors. The matte finish is more comfortable than its creme counterpart, but it has an odd feel on the lips that's difficult to describe -- sort of drier and thinner than what I'm used to. It doesn't skimp on pigment, though, and the rose gold packaging is simple but …Read more

Lip Treatments - Bite Beauty - Agave Lip Mask

5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

One of the best and most effective lip treatments I've used. I got the smaller tube in a set and it lasted far longer than I expected it to because you only need a tiny bit and don't need to reapply as often as the average lip balm. This has especially saved my lips in the winter with a one-two punch of moisturizing oils and lanolin, which helps seal those oils in. I wore this bed and …Read more
