Eye Shadow - COVERGIRL - Smoky ShadowBlast in Silver Sky

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/07/2010

The ads for this product are brilliant - it looks like a quick, portable smokey eye. I was sucked in, and I'm just glad I purchased from a retailer (Rite Aid) with a good return policy. First, the 'liner' side of the stick broke on first application. In order to get enough product out to be able to reach under my lashes, I had to extend the stick so far it snapped. Second …Read more

Mascara - Smashbox - Bionic Mascara

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/30/2009

This is a fine mascara for general use - it's a little lengthening, and medium as far as thickening. The brush is nice and dense, and this gives me a pretty, sooty fringe of lashes. It doesn't make my lashes sticky, clumpy or spiky. However, I find that it will faintly smudge under my eyes, so I won't re-purchase. I have a hard time finding a mascara that won't smudge …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Philosophy - the supernatural poreless flawless spf 15

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/03/2007

I can't believe I'm going to buy this again, because it's kind of spendy. But I got a sample in a 'discovery' kit from QVC and absolutely fell in love. This primer makes my make up go on smoothly and wear perfectly all day. It has a matte, moussy texture that blends evenly over my face easily, and it does blur pores and wrinkles exactly as advertised. One caveat - if …Read more

Cleansers - Philosophy - Purity Made Simple Cleanser

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/03/2007

This is my favorite cleanser, hands down. Even though I've switched to Paula's Choice products for most of my other skin care needs, I can't give up Purity. It is gentle on my face and eyes, and takes off every scrap of makeup. It removes waterproof eye makeup - even MAC liquidlast - with a bit of gentle rubbing on the lids. It doesn't leave a tight or dry feeling, and it …Read more

Powder - Cat Cosmetics - Cat Call Touch Up Powder

4.0

May/26/2007

I really like the option of buying this as a refill, which is very convenient. I have one of Cat's 3 well cases with powder and 2 shades of concealer, which is the perfect touch up on the go kit.

This powder has a nice smooth texture, medium coverage, and good staying powder. It does have some color and coverage, so I wouldn't recommend it if you are looking for a true …

Makeup Brushes - Cat Cosmetics - Open Sesameow Brush Kit

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/03/2007

I think the normal price ($65) for this set is a bit high, and I doubt I would have purchased the kit at full price. However, Cat frequently has sales and discounts on her website, so you should be able to get Open Sesameow at a better price if you are patient.

I can't imagine a better travel set of brushes. When closed, the whole set is about as big as an oversized deck of …

Lips - Cat Cosmetics - Lip Gloss Wheel

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/03/2007

This is a great combo of lip glosses - Roar, a deep bricky red; Murphy, a shimmery mid brown; Nova, a very pale taupe shimmer, Cat, a frosted pink, and Mouse, a warm gold. With a lip brush and these five colors, you can mix up any possible color you might want. Each well has a very generous amount of product; this should last quite a while. The texture is almost balm-like; very moist but not …Read more

Lip Gloss - Cat Cosmetics - Roar

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/03/2007

This is my favorite lip gloss ever. The color is rich, bold, and glamorous without being harsh. It's the modern version of a red lip - soft enough for most ages and skin tones. I wish all lip glosses were this smooth, non-sticky, non-tacky texture. When Roar wears off (after a good long time), it leaves my lips with a lovely 'bitten' stain.

Makeup Brushes - Cat Cosmetics - Cat's Kabuki Brush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/03/2007

I absolutely love this brush. I've had mine for at least a year, and I use it daily. It's sinfully soft and densely packed with bristles. It applies mineral make up with a smooth, even finish, and is great for bronzers or finishing powders as well. I like the feel of Cat's kabuki so much that I will sometimes spritz it with a hydrosol and buff it all over my face mid-day to …Read more

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Lash Exact Mascara

4.0

Feb/03/2007

Quite a good mascara for everyday. The brush is clever, and this goes on quickly with no clumps or smears. I'd want something different for a night on the town, but this does a nice job of building medium volume and length.
