I have fun with the concept that you can get a decent lipstick for $1. You really can, if it's Wet 'n' Wild! (They probably sell their products more "at cost" than dept. store brands w/shi-shi packaging, and make their money off the fact that most women buy more than one!) Black Orchid is by far my fave Silk Finish shade. It's similar to Clinique's Black Honey …Read more

Blush - Maybelline New York - Dream Mousse Blush - All colors [DISCONTINUED]

Aauuugh, I *so* wanted to like this because it's an oil-free version of cream blush, and the texture is ideal for creating a soft, natural look. However, Cloud Wine is the deepest shade they sell and I still couldn't get it to show on my skin! I'm a PPP (usually use the Ivory shade in a foundation line) and kept adding more of the mousse to my cheek hoping to create an autumnal …Read more

I was a bit leery of this product since Roller Color was such an awful mess to apply- but Maybelline has perfected the application of loose shadow powder! The packaging is cute and lightweight- it looks like a bottle of liquid liner- but when you pull out the applicator, it's a sponge tip covered with just the right amount of shadow!

I was drawn to this shade because I like deep …

Lip Treatments - Carmex - CHERRY Click-Stick

Sep/26/2006

I am a huge Carmex fan, have used the medicinal yellow goo for 25 years, so I was really excited when the company came out with a scent other than "menthol/paint thinner". The Carmex website has a big hullaballoo over the two new flavors, Cherry and Strawberry. Neither, IMHO, are very appealing-- probably because the company left in the menthol/camphor/phenol and just put a fakey fruit …Read more

Lips - Maybelline New York - Wet Shine Lipstick in Cherry Rain

I was really surprised by the opacity and matte-ness of this color compared to the other WetShine lipsticks I've tried (Pink Topaz, Glowing Glimmer, Drippin' Honey). This is not a true red; it's a VERY blue-toned red bordering on hot pink/magenta; reminds me of Revlon Cherries in the Snow. It is very, very bright and quite stunning if you're into that kind of shade. While it …Read more

Lip Gloss - NARS Cosmetics - Lip Lacquer in Chastity

Sep/08/2006

I got this as a gift; it came with another Lip Lacquer (Baby Doll) and a lipbrush. I love the minimalist NARS packaging, but this product is a dud for me. It's a very cool silvery pale mauve that just doesn't work for this yellow-toned PPP. It seems to suck color from my face instead of adding to it. I think this just doesn't work on warm skin tones. Some deeper mauves do …Read more

Yes, I read Allure too, and would sure rather pop for a $2 lipgloss than for one of the $100 face creams they tout. I'm underwhelmed by this gloss. I gave it two lippies because at least the *texture* is nice: liquid-lipstick opacity, nice and moisturizing, doesn't bleed. But the rose-gold-brown shade in the tube turns much lighter and frostier on the lips. I'm very pale and need a …Read more
