Jul/01/2008

I was at the Shu Uemura boutique to pick up eyeshadow and I happened to notice that they have this new mascara producgt, so I casually tried one of the sample tubes and... OMG! The is truly the "ultimate" mascara. It goes on easily without clumping, makes your lashes huge and full and glossy. Really gorgeous. I am going to save this for evening and use my Precise Volume or Shiseido …Read more

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Cream Blush in Lokoum

Jun/23/2008

Recently swapped for this blush, and I like it more than I expected to. Its a reddish color with gold shimmer and a hint of brown. I like it because when I put it on over foundation or bare skin and blend well, it's TOTALLY natural looking. (This is what I'm going for!!) If I add some bronzer or shimmery neutral blush over top of it, it's gives me noticeable but extremely …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Paint Pot - Indianwood

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/22/2008

I am now disenchanted with Paint Pots. The main reason is that they are so opaque, and I do not like opaque shadows during the daytime. Indianwood is a lovely shimmery bronze-gold. If you are looking for a very warm metallic bronze color that won't smear or fade, this is the product. I much prefer Shiseido Hydro Powder in Shimmering Sand.

It is unforgiveable that they make eye shadow pans that you THINK will go into the standard Stila shadow palette, but SURPRISE! it doesn't! The colors are OK, but I am at a loss as to how to store and carry them. Don't bother with this.

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Blush - Luster

This is a light peach with gold frost. I'm not much into frost blushes, but this one looks totally natural. It's nice to use over just about anything, or on bare skin. Its true what other reviewers have said, that this is the blush that looks good on those of us who find Orgasm to be too pink. If I have a little tan, this looks more like a highlighter, but is still lovely. I …Read more

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Cream Blush in Gueule de Nuit [DISCONTINUED]

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/26/2008

I am slowly becoming a convert to cream blushes- up to now I have been a steadfast powder-blush-only gal. First I came around to the NARS multiples, and now this blush. It is a lovely peachy-red, definitely more warm than cool. It is has a slight shimmer which is subtle. It adds a very natural looking color when used right on top of bare skin or foundation. The only problem for me is that …Read more

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Passion [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/26/2008

This is my favorite warm-toned matte blush- but I think this color has been discontinued. (The closest color to this is Amour, which seems more pink.) Passion is perfect for my olive skintone, and ideal when I don't want shimmer. Like other Nars blushes, it is very pigmented but it has a very fine consistency and really blends in well-- you don't see anything but a healthy flush. …Read more

Lipstick - SHISEIDO - Perfecting Lipstick - P1 Acorn (Bois de Cedre)

This is one of my favorite nude lipsticks. It's a perfect color but hard to describe- it has a beige-brown base but has some pink and plum in it as well. It goes on fairly sheer and has dimension to it. Feels moist, is easily layered. Lasting power isn't great, but its still lovely.

Lipstick - Clé de Peau Beauté - lipstick

I bought my first CdeP lipstick about 2 years ago - #61 - and although I was SHOCKED at the price ($55) I went and bought 3 more within a year. This is a light textured lipstick which seems to deposit color on the lips that lasts for a good long while. It's not particularly moisturizing, but it does somehow make my lips look luscious. My favorite colors are #61, a frosty beige, and #22, a …Read more

Crème - CHANTECAILLE - Future Skin Foundation

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/13/2008

I had not used foundation regularly for at least a decade, when I found this. Although I didn't intend to use it every day, that is what I wound up doing. Liquid foundations tend to get "sucked up" into my skin, and compact foundations like MAC Moistureblend tend to be too heavy/emollient. Future Skin is a unique product because of its gel texture. Why did it take so long for …Read more
