Eye Shadow - Lancôme - Color Design Eyeshadow Palette - Taupe Craze

This is a hidden palette gem if you are a taupe fan. I have seen this palette mentioned by a few MUAers who are true makeup artists, not just dabblers or collectors, and it definitely lives up to expectation in terms of quality and usefulness. It certainly doesn't have the glamour of all the current hot palettes, but it is so pretty and imminently usable that I think it deserves some love …Read more

Fragrances - diptyque - Tam Dao

I got this as a gift for my father, a former master woodworker before he lost his vision. He loves the scent of a wood workshop, so I was naturally enticed to treat him to some Tam Dao. It certainly delivers the aromatic scent of sandalwood,cedar and rosewood, but the dry down is the most lovely chapter. Woody/evergreen scent very quickly calms into a soft amber powder withe faintest hint of …Read more

Lip Treatments - Unlisted Brand - Treat Beauty - Marshmallow Cream Jumbo Lip Balm

3.0

9 months ago

I was super excited to try this cruelty free brand because the flavor sounded so delectable. Well it it did work as a lip balm in keeping my lips hydrated during the dry months of winter, however I did not particularly enjoy using it. The scent was almost undetectable and the flavor was merely of Stevia. I think my biggest complaint is that the texture was also somewhat gritty. I kept it on my …Read more

Brows - NYX Professional Makeup - Auto Eyebrow Pencil - Taupe EP06

This applied with good precision and looked OK, but is overall meh. For a product listed as taupe, this looks quite red, which I wasn't thrilled with. Also, you have to press hard to get get decent application, which is both good and bad in that it doesn't apply willy-nilly, but it also feels kind of hard and unpigmented for the amount of effort application takes. My biggest gripe with …Read more

Highlighters - Milk Makeup - Highlighter - Lit

2.0

I have this in “Turnt”, a rose gold. I purchased this because I was almost out of my old stick highlighter and this came in a handy dandy mini size, which is perfect for travel. It was $14 and I was curious to try something by Milk so I figured what the heck. To get to the point, I find this very unimpressive. It goes on as a shimmer wash and you can’t see the underlying rose gold color at all …Read more

Eyeliner - Kat Von D - Tattoo Liner

This is a game changer for the eyeliner challenged. I've never really been able to do a precise line with a nice flick because I am simply too klutzy. I have had the best luck with felt-tip liners, but never great success. Until I met the Tattoo Liner! Beautiful, thin line, and so easy to control in application. I have small, somewhat hooded lids and it's very hard to use liner in …Read more

Polishes - China Glaze - Heaven

I love this because it is the closest dupe to OPI Fijee Wijee, which I wore on my wedding day and has been DCed since the ‘90s. I know this is a good dupe because I have been looking for over 10 years. Finally a I consulted a new friend who has a stash of 850+ polishes. She immediately suggested Heaven, and oh how right she was! Heaven is a peach hued beige with a delicate pearl/micro shimmer …Read more

Hair - Goldwell - Kerasilk Beautifying Hair Perfume

4.0

May/16/2018

I'm liking this! But I'm not sure what it's supposed to do. Goldwell describes the purpose of this potion is to "Reactivate the freshly-washed hair scent, mask and protect against unpleasant odors, and provide a silky hair feel, a touch of shine and prevent static." I found that it's basically a silkening agent with a very pleasant smell. In fact, I bought it for the …Read more

Hair Treatments - BioSilk - Silk Therapy

May/10/2018

I have used this for nearly 20 years, so I think a review is in order. First off, oils are now a thing, but when this came out there was nothing much else like it. I remember being wowed by the results so many years ago and my stylist saying "it's the best in the industry." So what does it do? Well it really does soften, silken and detangle. I have long, chemically treated hair …Read more

Fragrances - The Body Shop - Shea EDT

May/04/2018

This is a very pleasant fragrance, but it's not a women's fragrance, thus the lippie off. TBS should specify that this is at least a unisex scent. I ordered it for myself, but it smells like a man's aftershave or cologne, le sad. Don't get me wrong, a very nice men's cologne, but there's no way this is a feminine scent. It it is sweet, warm and spicy smelling. Like …Read more
