Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Satin Blush in Peony Petal

Apr/07/2012

This is my first MAC blush purchase and I have to say I am impressed! Normally, I wear more warm-toned blushes for fair-skinned people. This was different for me. I wear my NARS luster under this, and use this bright pink as a pop on the cheeks. It looks great! They sold me Angel lipstick, too, but I like the blush better than the lipstick. This reminds me of my old Bobbi Brown pale pink …Read more

Eye Shadow - Maybelline New York - Expert Wear Eyeshadow Trios - Almond Satin

I like the neutral shades, but the trio is not quite as pigmented as I would like.


It has a large portion of ivory matte that is used as a base, then a lid shade that is shimmery, and the crease color is a darker brown that is matte.


This is a palette that I would love to love, but it seemed to fade on me throughout the day. The lid color is very close to my …

Eye Shadow - Physicians Formula - Metallic Canyon Shimmers Quad

I found this yesterday at Ulta. It is great! These colors look better than several others that I own, including BB, LM, NARS, Clinique, etc. It is subtle, but you can tell you are wearing eye shadow. It shimmers, but I don't notice tons of lines or wrinkles on my lids. I really like this stuff!

Liquid - NARS Cosmetics - Sheer Matte ] ] [DISCONTINUED]

Apr/10/2011

Not impressed. The color matches well, but application is poor. I applied this today, and had a hard time getting the foundation to blend. After much work, I stood back and looked in the mirror. I noticed that this foundation had collected in my pores, making them look enlarged. It was very sheer (as expected) except that it had collected in my pores excessively. Not a good look for …

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Blush - Sex Appeal

Apr/04/2011

I am NC 20-ish (I think) and I adore this blush. I am strongly considering getting rid of all my other blushes and using only this one! I love it! It makes me have a very natural flush. I used to have Amour, which is OK, but seemed very bright on my fair skin. Sex Appeal is a very light color, but that is what I like. It also lasts the whole day. I am very pleased and have even purchased a …Read more

I love the look of this in the pan. KL has a rosy gold and purple color. I thought the golds would help warm up the colors, but they still show up quite cool. Anyway, I played with it for a while, but have decided to return it to Saks. Here is the question that I asked myself that convinced me: "Why do I apply concealer everywhere over my reddness, just to apply redness to my lids & …Read more

Polishes - Essie - Peach Daiquiri

I got this for about $8 at Walgreens. I was pleased to see a quite extensive Essie display there, although they did not have every color I was in search of. I settled on Peach Daiquiri for my Spring/Summer pedicure color. I love warm, bright colors on my toes in the warmer months of the year. This fits the bill definitely, although many reviewers are correct when they write that it …Read more

I am tentatively optimitistic with this shampoo. My hair seems very voluminous today. I didn't love the scent, but it doesn't stick to my hair after showering. I hope this replaces the Big Sexy line I've been using because it is less pricey.


UPDATE: I used this daily for about a month, but it left my hair flat. Darn it!

I got this in Shade B from a swap, and I am pleased with it. I had researched this from the Beautypedia website, and was looking for a long-wearing foundation for oily skin.


I really think this leaves a natural look, and the color match is perfect. I usually wear Revlon CS Buff.


I did not think it had such minimal coverage. For me, it covered well. I do wish …

I remember when this came out when I was in HS. I didn't go for it then, but it was on a list of perfumes I should try if I like this scent, try this other one. Anyway, I got a sample in a swap, and have been wearing it. It lasts all day and smells great on my skin. In fact, this is the only scent that my husband has ever commented on when I wore it. So, you know that makes it a keeper …Read more
