I have this in two colours: Daringly Nude and Touch of Spice. This is a review for Daringly Nude, as I've already posted a review underneath the Touch of Spice page.

Daringly Nude is a light-medium pinky-brown nude that runs unfortunately a little pale on my lips. I can work around it by using a darker lipliner, but it doesn't work on its own for me. It may just be a …

Lipstick - Maybelline New York - Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lip Color - Touch Of Spice

Touch of Spice is a medium-toned reddish brown that has a slight mauve colouring to it as well. My lips are quite dark, so it is fairly close to a nude for me; albeit just a little more purple-brownish. It looks very sophisticated and office-appropriate when worn with a little mascara, so it definitely scores well on everyday wearability. It's comfortable, wears well, and is cheap - …Read more

Lipstick - Maybelline New York - Color Sensational Vivids - Shocking Coral 910

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/22/2016

Shocking? Yes. Coral? ....I wouldn't say that. In my experience, it's much more of a bright neon pink. And unfortunately, I do NOT look good in bright shocking neon pink. The formula is comfortable, as with all Maybelline lipsticks, but I haven't worn it long enough to test out staying power - it's a literal "on-off" relationship. I put it on, see how it looks …Read more

Oh, Gold Blooded. As much as I love your colour, gold-flecked bright red, I just can't get over how you feel going on the lips. I want a lipstick, not a coloured lip exfoliant masquerading as a lipstick. It's much better when my lips are perfect, but when they're not.... Man, it hurts to put on. And can we just talk about the general studded kiss lipstick packaging for a …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Media lipstick

5.0

Media is a dark, vampy red-leaning purple that goes on fairly opaque in one coat and can be built up to its true-to-bullet colour. It is technically a satin but looks quite matte on me and it is comfortable to wear, with reapplication only needed after a heavy meal. I think this is a good choice for anyone looking for a dark statement lip who isn't quite ready to jump straight to black or …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Define A Lash Waterproof

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/30/2016

Holds a curl well, blackens and defines, but the formula is so wet that I can't help but make mistakes with it - even when I think I'm just doing my lashes I'm blackening up my eyelid as well. That can probably be attributed to my inferior mascara skills, however, so I'm not going to put that as too much of a problem. The brush size is pretty average, but I do prefer brushes …Read more

Eye Shadow - Bobbi Brown - Shimmer Wash Eyeshadow - Black Plum #15

I found this one sitting around in a drawer somewhere, and I have no idea how it got there in the first place, because it is simply gorgeous! I love using this on the outer corner of the eye when I have a bright shadow all over the lid, just to darken it and make it a little less in your face. It also makes a much more natural smoky eye than straight up black, so it's good for that too. …Read more

Eye Shadow - Kat Von D - Metal Crush Eyeshadow- Iggy

Jan/30/2016

This. Is so beautiful. It's just like that perfect stereotypical emerald green that everyone in every book ever describes green eyes as - you know that green? Don't forget to add a ton of green glitter to it as well. And its so smooth, it's amazing. If I had the money for it, I would buy every eyeshadow in this line. It's a pretty big pan (2.8g), so I don't think …Read more

"OMGOMGOMG IT'S SOOOO BLACK I NEED THIS IN MY LIFE"

But really, that was my internal reaction when I swatched PC01 Hot Black in store. This is the blackest freaking black eyeshadow you will ever find, trust me! This is darker than some of my black eyeliners - no joke. Just swatch your finger once and it will look like you've dipped your finger in oil or something …

Pressed Powders - NYX Professional Makeup - Primal Colors - PC07 Hot Red

Jan/30/2016

This makes me sad. Really.

I really don't worry too much 'eye safety' and things like that, so the labelling of this as 'face makeup' doesn't particularly worry me. As long as I don't develop a reaction, anything is fair game. What I am annoyed about is the lack of pigmentation. It goes on a little patchy, and is not very buildable at all. …
