Honestly, the wear time is what really impresses me. It is also a very opaque, creamy lipstick that looks like a medium, neutral pink on me. It's great for everyday purposes, as its simple and feminine color as well as comfortable, long wear make it an ideal choice.
The other colors don't really appeal to me as much, but I'm sure they are beautiful regardless. It has a minty …

Oh, YSL. Many of us beauty fanatics are in your hands, glazed eyes & salivating for that damn nice packaging.
But that price though.
The product itself is, in essence, a tinted glossy balm. It is very comfortable on the lips, leaving them looking hydrated and pretty. The red color of this particular shade is that cherry color you get when sucking on a cherry popsicle. A kind of …

This is a foundation that looks beautiful, sounds wonderful, and smells like the entire Macy's perfume section that a child just rampaged through. It's such a shame that it's so heavily scented, as the color was light enough for me and the consistency initially seemed nice.
I'm not terribly against scented foundations, as Chanel's Vitalumiere Aqua works just fine for …

I have a love-hate relationship with this foundation. What do I like? The formula and finish. What do I not like? Breakouts.
I bought this on a whim, being frustrated because of the lack of very pale foundations at Sephora. I am NW15, and there are brands I wholly disregard when thinking about face products because they do not make my shade. MUFE however, does, and when I found my match, 110 …

I. Love. This. The people giving it bad reviews must either be using it wrong or have absolutely unmanageable hair, because both my mother and I love this.
Both of us have finer, lighter hair, but my mom's is curly (especially at the nape) and mine is straight with a hint of a wave. I use this on my moist hair, let it sit a bit, and then comb through my not-quite-dry hair with my …

I have acne prone skin that's quite sensitive so I was hesitant to use this, however I've tried it twice now and I have to say that it does make a difference. My skin feels soft and exfoliated, and my redness is greatly reduced..I believe this may be caused by my pores getting unclogged or something of that sort.
It is very difficult to get off so really make sure you don't …

(I got this in Trooper, the black one)
Well, I'll give you the summary: not pigmented, not long wearing, and therefore totally overpriced, and it will go back to Sephora.

Now, let me go into depth: I am quite surprised, as I heard that this eyeliner is very similar to Stila's, which I really enjoy and have bought multiple times. What is different, at first glance, is …

Eyeliner - NYC New York Color - Liquid Eyeliner

Sep/12/2014

This is honestly a really wonderful product. It is a deep black, with an applicator that can create thin and thick lines. It is a brush, so it may be difficult for beginners, but I find that, with some practice, it is much better to use than a felt tip because it doesn't dry out as quickly. The typical felt pens seem easier to use, but they all dry out in the long run, or the tip frays. This …Read more

I LOVE this color. It's a very interesting shade, and hard to describe. I would say it's primarily a pink, with brown, mauve, and even purple tones in it. On close inspection it also has some very fine glitter in it, but nothing too gritty or noticeable really. It is a very wearable, mature shade, and quite matte, which means it will stay on for a decent time. It reminds me of Kylie …Read more

Polishes - NYC New York Color - In A Minute Quick Dry Polish - 004 Robin's Egg Blue

5.0

Apr/16/2014

This is such a stunning color, I absolutely adore it! It is a beautiful, Tiffany blue/Robin's Egg blue color - as the name would imply! The polish itself is creamy and pigmented, going on easily with a decently sized brush, to create an opaque light blue in two coats.
One thing I appreciate and miss in many polish brands is a quick drying time. My Essie polishes are beautiful in color …
