Lipstick - L'Oreal Paris - Infallible Pro-Last 2 Step Lipstick - All Colors

Oct/01/2016

I have this in Continual Crimson 213. This lipstick holds right up. I apply it at 6am, eat breakfast, eat lunch, drink coffee and water - it doesn't fade until after dinner. There is a bit of a learning curve, so I understand where others have run into to flaking issues. My very first application, the color came out kind of insipid - as if I had used Kool-Aid powder as lip stain. I loaded up …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - GUERLAIN - Meteorites Perles Light Diffusing Perfecting Primer

Oct/29/2009

I am so completely hooked on this product!

At my first full-faced plunge into the Guerlain product-line, my MA mixed one pump of this primer in with the Parure Aqua Radiant Foundation. He then applied the mixture with a foundation brush. I'm usually wary of scented products on my face, but I really enjoy this rose-water scent. Even though he gave me full coverage, it all felt …

Blush - GUERLAIN - Russian Doll blush

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/29/2009

I first stepped down the dark path of pricey Guerlain when I discovered their Terracotta Loose Powder Kohl Eyeliners. When the Terracotta spray bronzer came out last spring, I snapped that up, too. When the Russian Doll blush started appearing in all the magazines, I knew what the plan was for my Nordstrom's Fall trend show makeover.

I asked my MA to build a look for me centered …

Polishes - China Glaze - Lubu Heels

Jun/20/2008

Since my very first pedicure (shamefully only a few years ago), I've loved China Glaze nail polishes. After discovering Ruby Pumps and Dorothy Who? too late to get the whole Wizard of Ooh-Ahz collection, I now watch their site like a hawk. So tell me how I missed Lubu Heels? (Do hawks eyes get worse as they age, too?)

Since Ruby Pumps is seriously the best glitter nail lacquer …

Moisturizers - L'Oreal Paris - L'Oreal Skin Genesis Daily Moisturizer, SPF 15 Lotion

Jun/04/2008

Well, I'm 36 years old, have combination skin that's on the sensitive side with loads of fine lines around my eyes and the tops of my cheeks. I also had the very fine bumps all over my cheeks (milia). I was also intrigued by the Skin Genesis packaging and the promise of strengthening and evening out my skin. My first pleasant surprise from this product was the texture: light and silky …Read more

Lip Liners - CHANEL - Precision Lip Definer-Pink Sugar (Fall '04)

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/04/2008

I just went to a Cosmetics Trend show at Nordstrom's this past weekend. I had my makeup done at Chanel, but I knew what I was going to buy before I got there. Well, this lip liner changed my mind in a hurry! It's the perfect pink to go with this spring's bright lip colors. My artist used it under Chanel Hydrabase Lipstick in Splendeur (a gorgeous creamy hot pink with very slight …Read more

Lip Treatments - DuWop - Prime Venom

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/29/2008

I've always loved the clove-cinnamon smell of Lip Venom products, so imagine my delight at discovering the Prime Venom for using under my lipsticks! Happy Day! I honestly feel that lip plumpers don't 'plump' as much as the stinging makes you hold your mouth in a moue, but I love them anyway.

At $20, it's expensive for something I wear under my lipsticks, but I …

Lip Gloss - Vincent Longo - Lip Vinyl in Fellini Red

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/29/2008

I am completely in love with Vincent Longo's Lip Vinyl. Tons of pigment, zero stickiness, GORGEOUS shine! Apply a little, you get a lovely cherry-red stain to your lips. Apply a lot, you get a super-shiny VERY dramatic glossy red. It's the perfect tool for this spring's cherry lips. I will admit that the fuzzy applicator took a little getting used to. (I'd suggest using a lip …Read more

Blush - Tarte Cosmetics - Cheek Stain in Flush

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/29/2008

I wanted to love this. The color is gorgeous. I really love cheek stains and BeneTint broke one too many times in my purse. I wanted something more portable. I didn't enjoy the texture of the Tarte Cheek Stain at all. Too sticky for me. So sad, because I do wish it worked for me.

Lip Treatments - bareMinerals - Buzz Latte lipbalm

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/29/2008

I don't usually like waxy balms, but the smell of this one made me enjoy using it for a time. I took a hint from the Bare Minerals how-to DVD and dipped it in my Glee All-Over Face color for a lovely pink look to my lips. I wouldn't use it as a balm alone (I much prefer Kiehl's or my Rosebud Salve) but it got too messy to carry around my bare Minerals powders. I won't buy it …Read more
