Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Sounds Like Noise

Apr/14/2013

Despite only giving this lipstick 3 stars, it's really a great shade. Maybe not the best formula, but such a pretty color. It's definitely a true orange, not too dark with very little red. I think it looks just a little strange on me full on, as it is very pigmented and the matte formula is not very forgiving. Steered out under a lipbalm, or with gloss on top, makes it a much more …Read more

I have and like the lipstick version of this lipgloss, but it's not an easy color to wear-bright, opaque coral pink. The lipglass, luckily, is much easier to wear. It's still a bright coral pink,but not as opaque or chalky-looking. Don't get me wrong, I love a bright lipstick, but with this type of color, a little bit of sheerness helps make it more wearable. It's very …Read more

Lipstick - MILANI - Color Statement Lipstick-Red Label

Mar/02/2013

This is definitely one of the most flattering red lipsticks I've found. It's a red cream with no shimmer, but a little bit of sheen (since it's so creamy). It's not drying, but I did notice a bit of bleeding after a few hours of wear, so I need a lipliner with it. Otherwise, the color and texture are really superb, and it wears pretty well and leaves a bit of a stain, so I …Read more

This is a lovely light peach blush with a tiny bit of subtle white shimmer. I'm not an Archie fan, but I love light, peachy colors and I don't have anything like this in my collection, so I decided I'd pick it up when it launched.


The texture is nice-not too soft and powdery, but not stiff and unpigmented, either. The color itself is very flattering on me (I am …

Lip Gloss - L'Oreal Paris - Colour Riche Caresse Wet Shine Stain - Pink Resistance 183

Dec/08/2012

I found these glosses in a display at Target, and snatched up a couple immediately. I'd heard these were a dupe for YSL Glossy Stains (LOVE them and was thrilled to hear about a much cheaper dupe). Pink Resistance is the second lightest color, and in the tube looks like a light pinkish peach.


The color, once on my lips, deepens quite a bit. It actually reminds me quite a …

Lipstick - Hourglass Cosmetics - Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick-Edition

5.0

Oct/28/2012

I hadn't heard a lot of good things about this product, but since I like the idea of a nondrying, long lasting lipstick that doesn't need one of those icky topcoats, I picked up Edition.


The color is BEAUTIFUL. It's a medium warm pink with a tiny bit of gold shimmer. It's very flattering and lights up my face. The finish is matte, obviously, and the color …

Lips - Yves Saint Laurent - Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain 17 Encre Rose

I adore this. The color, the texture, the scent-everything about this. Is awesome. #17 is a beautiful everyday midtone pink with a hint of purple. It goes on pretty vibrant, but once it settles it is a bit darker and slightly more subtle, and looks amazing on my NW20 complexion. I love the way the color brightens up my face-I generally go for much lighter lipcolors, but this just looks amazing …Read more

Lip Gloss - MAC Cosmetics - Budding Love Lipglass

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/16/2012

Budding Love lipglass was part of the 2012 Chenman collection. It's a light lavender pink, with no noticeable shimmer. The color is super-flattering on me (NW20)-not too light or bubblegum-y, but not too purple that it looks unnatural.


The texture is quite a bit thinner than a regular lipglass, which some might like. I actually prefer my lipgloss pretty sticky and I was …

Lip Gloss - MAC Cosmetics - Cremesheen - Star Quality

Apr/07/2012

I LOVE the color of this gloss. It's a reddish coral cream that's bright, but not too bright. I have a general aversion to orange-y reds/corals, in that I love the color in the tube but hate the way they look on me (NW15-20). I tend to gravitate towards cooler, lighter colors and not semi-opaque warm corals.


For whatever reason, though, I love this. It looks great on …

Lips - MAC Cosmetics - Dazzleglass Creme SOFT DAZZLE

3.0

Sep/26/2009

I actually am not too thrilled with this gloss. I love the original Dazzleglasses, and was excited to try the Dazzleglass Creme, as I figured they'd be like a more pigmented version.


While they are more pigmented and just as sparkly, however, they're super-gritty. Soft Dazzle is a very pretty, pigmented, light peachy-pink with a ton of gold glitter. The color is …
