Blush - MILANI - Baked Blush - Luminoso

Jul/18/2018

Like almost all of you out there, I have a lot of blush. Creams, powders, high end, low end, you name it but I find myself reaching for this one more often than not. It has the right amount of buildable pigmentation and a subtle gold glow which is not garish or inappropriate for the daytime. Even though this is not a dupe for the Nars Orgasm, I like this one MUCH better. The Orgasm is way too …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Unlisted Brand - Home Made Brush Cleaner / Cleanser

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/25/2016

The best cleanser for brushes (and those darn hard-to-wash Beauty Blenders) is Dr. Bronner's Liquid Castile Soap. I like using the almond scented one, or the unscented. Get one of those small silicone mitts (for grabbing hot pans from the stove) and use it as an aid to get all the makeup off. Wet your brushes thoroughly, but try not to get the ferrule (metal part which holds the bristles) …Read more

Hair Styling Tools - Mason Pearson - Boar Bristle Brush

Jan/02/2016

I purchased this brush in the handy size around 5 or 6 years ago while traveling in London. I had just read about a "$150" hairbrush in one of the beauty magazines and thought, "what insanity! ". (Even though as an older person I can easily afford the product.). I notice the price has gone up since. After trying this brush out at home, I thought I made a $450 mistake! (I …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - Softsoap - Moisturizing Hand Soap - Milk and Honey

I admit it - I'm obsessed with soap! I love this brand, Softsoap for their handsoaps and body washes. They have delicious scents, are readily available, always have coupons or sales, and they never irritate my sensitive skin. I buy this handwash in the jumbo refill size on sale at Target. I bought a nice quality glass pump at Crate and Barrel ($22) and this stuff looks luxe in it. I …Read more

Palettes - Urban Decay - NAKED [DISCONTINUED]

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/04/2014

This could be your HG palette. Plenty of nice neutral colors that tend to lean warm, and look at all these 5 lippie reviews. However, if you are older, like me, the shimmer shades do not work so well with my crepey lids. "Sin" for example, looks smooth on my 20 year old daughter, but on me, looks uneven. Some shimmers are better than others for me. For example, the ones in the …Read more

Polishes - Sally Hansen - Complete Salon Manicure Nail Polish

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/19/2014

I have never reviewed a polish, but this stuff is AMAZING. I am usually an OPI gal, but I bought this on sale at CVS in shade 150 Hi Ho Silver because I wanted a shiny, glittery opaque silver. (it looks great with my white gold and silver rings) I brought this to my manicurist and she loves the brush on Sally Hansen polishes. She put on a base coat, 2 coats of the polish, and a top coat. It …Read more

Lip Liners - NYX Professional Makeup - Slim Lip Pencil - Nectar 850

Jul/06/2014

I too, ordered from the NYX website and got this little pencil as a "bonus" gift. I would have never ordered it on my own, but now that I have tried it, I will buy it once it is gone. It is smooth and non drying and looks good as lipcolor on its own - just outline and fill in. You can top it off with gloss for a shinier look, or put another shade of lipstick over it. I am a medium …Read more

Palettes - Paula's Choice - The Nude Mattes Eyeshadow Palette

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/31/2014

Did I NEED another palette? Nooo. I'm a little ashamed to admit how much eyeshadow I have.
So WHY did I buy this? One of my favorite makeup gurus, Wayne Goss helped create this palette, and with the exception of one satin color, it is all matte. The shades blend very nicely, the texture is good, and with a primer (I use UDPP) it does last all day. It is definitely good quality and …
