Eyes - MAC Cosmetics - False Lashes

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/14/2012

I'm here to review the #30 individuals and the #20 corner lashes - these two kinds are the only ones I've tried so far, and I like them both.

The #30 individuals will last me for absolutely ages, because I find I can use and re-use them up to 3 times each, and I only ever wear a couple individuals per eye for added fullness, so I'm not in danger of running out of those …

Misc Beauty Tools - Unlisted Brand - DUO - Eyelash Adhesive

4.0

Jan/11/2012

Great lash adhesive. It takes about 10-15 seconds to become tacky, so it allows me to put my falsies on, re-adjust them and finally leave them there, without having to hold them into place till it dries. I have the white (clear) version, and I've never had any problems with it being noticeable in any way - it's absolutely invisible, I don't have to go over it with liner or …Read more

Eyeliner - MAC Cosmetics - Eye Kohl - Teddy

Jan/11/2012

Such a beautiful and unique and versatile product. Let me start off by saying I hate the color brown. Hate it in clothing, accessories, benches, trees, and of course makeup. I'd sworn off it ages ago, and here comes Teddy now to break the spell. It is the most wonderful brown kohl pencil I've ever come across. It's actually a warm, bronzy brown with a pearl to it (I also have a …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Matte Lipstick - Russian Red

4.0

Jan/11/2012

This would be the definition of red in the dictionary. Resplendent, all-time-classic, true red. It can look surprisingly modern or devilishly retro, depending on the outfit you pair it with. Yes, this lipstick dictates the whole outfit - helps you get into character and project whatever side of your personality you feel like showing off each time. It's a lovely matte opaque texture, which is …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Eyeshadow Lustre - Gleam

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/01/2011

At first I thought I'd hate this - being a Lustre and having those warm tones, I was convinced it was a no-no for me. But I was wrong! Au contraire, it seems like a pretty universal eyeshadow to me now. It's a nude, peachy color with a slight duochrome to it, meaning it kinda fades out into this cool light pink sometimes, which makes it more interesting and multi-dimensional. Now …Read more

Polishes - Bourjois - Nail Enamel #37 Vert

3.0

Dec/01/2011

Thought I'd squeeze in a little review for the color 38 - Dîner à Paris. It's a cool dark brown color with plummy undertones and a mauvy/taupy satin sheen to it. The color is very similar to Sketch eyeshadow from Mac. I'd say it's more of a "grown-up" color, mainly due to its texture rather than the hue itself. It's got no shine, but rather a slight shimmer …Read more

Eye Shadow - Bourjois - Smoky Eyes Trio - Gris Dandy 01

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/15/2011

This review is for the Smoky Eyes Trio in 09-Lady Vert de Gris, which consists of 3 colors in the taupe/cool brown family. The lightest one looks like a warmer Electra from Mac (feels like a Lustre too). It's a medium-to-light taupe, and as far as texture goes, it's a chunky mess that causes massive fall-out and needs major building up in order to show up. The other two shadows in the …Read more

Lip Gloss - Bourjois - 3D Effect - Les Nudes - 33 Brun Poetic

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/15/2011

This review is for 33-Brun Poetic's big sister, aka 34-Rose Mythic. I've seen them both in action and they're actually quite similar - 33 is a tad more pale, whilst 34 has got a bit more life to it. I'd describe Rose Mythic as a muted, light rose color - on the pale side, but far from dead-looking. In terms of shine, it's an absolute disco ball. It's incredibly …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - KORRES Natural Products - Hand Cream with real thyme honey

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/12/2011

This is a nice basic hand cream. It has a very pleasant waxy scent to it, which is probably due to all the greek thyme honey it contains. It's very rich and it takes a while to absorb, often leaving a bit of sticky residue, however that's not very annoying if you don't involve your fingers too much in all the rubbing. It's pretty moisturizing and it will do the job of keeping …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Cream Color Base in Dusk

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/12/2011

Lovely cream color base. If not my favorite out of all of them, then definitely on my top 3. It's a medium beige/taupe color with shimmer, which I use when I want to create a seemingly effortless, yet modern and slightly lived-in smoky eye. It creases like mad and looks greasy as time goes by, but that's kind of the point with these looks really. It gives your eyes that almost tired yet …Read more
