Foundations - COVERGIRL - Natureluxe Liquid Silk Foundation ] [DISCONTINUED]

Dec/30/2011

Although I was initially underwhelmed by this foundation, (it was an emergency replacement on a trip when I’d forgotten my regular foundation) I’ve found myself reaching for it consistently for the last six months, and decided it was finally time to publically affirm that it’s pretty alright. This “liquid silk foundation” wears and spreads just like a tinted moisturizer on my skin. The 230 …Read more

Styling Products - SAMY - Fat Hair Zero "0" Calories Amplifying Hair Spray

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/06/2011

This hairspray is disgustingly awesome. I have fine, naturally curly hair that I either diffuse and wear natural, or set in large rollers. Either way, I have a major problem with flat roots due to how fine it is, and am always on the lookout for a product that is truly volumizing. And I can't believe that this accidental drugstore purchase may actually be the one! I've tried …Read more

Crème - L'Oreal Paris - magic smooth souffle [DISCONTINUED]

Jul/21/2011

Brilliant formulation, and if you prep your skin right, the results are gorgeous. This "souffle" combines the best attributes of a primer and medium coverage foundation and makes my pores absolutely disappear. The texture is somewhere in between marshmallow creme (although it's not sticky) and whipped cream - true to its name, it actually reminds me of an artfully done onion …Read more

Fragrances - Dior - Addict Eau de Parfum

Jul/20/2011

This is probably the closest I’ll have to a signature scent, as I serially rotate fragrances as often as most people change clothes. However I’ve loved, and frequently worn, Dior Addict for about 7 years, definitely making it one of the scents I’ve stuck with the longest. I discovered it in the slightly stalker way I fall in love with all perfumes … by catching the sillage in the air wafting …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Eye Shadow - Swiss Chocolate (Matte)

5.0

Jul/20/2011

HG brown! After dying my naturally red hair brunette, I noticed that the new color didn't flatter my green eyes as much. (The color didn't flatter any of my other features either - lesson learned). Having read here that this shadow really brings out the blues and greens in people's eyes, I picked up Swiss Chocolate at my Mac counter a few days ago without even swatching it. I am …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Hot Tahiti Lipstick

Jul/18/2011

Everything about this lipstick is fabulous, and it's currently taken the place of all my other lipsticks and glosses. Color: it really is neutral and will flatter just about anyone. Because it doesn't have any overt cool or warm undertones, it adds a lovely (I like the description "juicy") red to any natural lip tone - it is very buildable and enhances your natural lip …Read more

Jul/15/2011

*Meh* After getting over the devastation that the discontinuation of Tarte - Eco Cheek inflicted on me, I was on the lookout for a peach-based w/gold shimmer blush replacement. I tend to gravitate towards gel and cream blushes as I feel they give you a "lit from within" look versus the HELLO-I'M-WEARING-BLUSH-AND-IT'S-SITTING-ON-TOP-OF-MY-SKIN effect, and the descriptions of …Read more

Self Tanners - Hawaiian Tropic - Island Radiance Self Tanner

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/13/2011

MUA led me to this self-tanner and I am pretty happy overall with its performance. I had been using the L'oreal sublime bronze (gel formula), which is decent, but was looking for something that didn't turn me as orange and reek as badly. One moderate application of the Hawaiian Tropic (bought it in the medium creme formula, advertised as 2 shades darker than your natural color) …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Pro Longwear Paint Pot - Painterly

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/27/2011

I currently live in the desert and have extremely oily lids, which is a recipe for a mid-afternoon eyeshadow melt-down disaster. Cue this paint pot, which is an absolute lifesaver. I have always been pretty happy with Two-faced shadow insurance, but painterly is just opaque enough on my lids that it gives my eye shadow a more polished look. I'm a very pale redhead, and it does noticeably …Read more

Hair Treatments - Moroccanoil - Treatment - Light

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/22/2011

I have fine, naturally curly red hair which is extremely dry, and has gotten more so after moving to the desert. Moroccanoil Light has been a life saver ... it disappears into my hair leaving it soft and shiny, and it has helped prevent split ends when I blow my hair out straight. The scent is lovely - sort of a patchouli/coconut blend, but it disappears within minutes of styling. My hair is …Read more
