I'm pleased with the overall Fenty makeup line. I like that the company includes colors for deepest of complexions. While other companies have done this in the past, sometimes it wasn't well done. However, thumbs up to the Estee Lauder family and Lancome for paying attention to the diversity of warm, cool and olive undertones for deeper complexions.

With that said …

Sweet Dreams

As a woman of color I've been trying to find the perfect shade of orange lipstick that would be flattering on my brown complexion (Estee Lauder Bronze). I remember about 2 years ago orange lipstick was the rage, but often the orange lipsticks looked like I just finished eating an orange ice pop. I realized I needed a liquid matte lipstick to get the full opaque look …

Sometimes you don't want to go red but you want a color that's strong and confident. Chili has those properties and warmth! This is a great color for tan, brown and deep complexions. It looks fabulous on my Estee Lauder Bronze complexion with out looking too bold. It looks like a deep brown red, but more in the red family on my complexion. It's a color that I can wear it to …Read more

Surprisingly this is a great coral shade for my Estee Lauder Bronze complexion. When I asked the makeup artist for a coral lipstick, I was little intimidated by the outward color. It didn't look like it would compliment my caramel complexion. I was wrong. A few factors played into this. The color came off as sheer on my lips, similar to L'Oreal's and Revlon's lip butters - …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour

If you're a ColourPop or Kat Von D fan, this liquid lipstick will most likely disappoint you. It differs because it doesn't dry quickly and you won't get the ultra matte look. More so, this lipstick reminded me of Revlon's liquid lipstick where you get dense color but it won't dry in a few seconds to super matte.

The other thing is that you must have a steady …

I purchased this product last summer when it first came out. I first saw it on You.tube and was impressed by the pitch that it's universal. While the color looked "nice" on my Estee Lauder Bronze, I don't think it's the best color for me. I'd prefer a more yellow /golden payoff than the paler peachy gold. Nevertheless, it didn't look bad - it was good enough …Read more

This is a great everyday color lipstick for my nc45 / Nars Cadiz complexion. Although it's described as a smokey rose. It looks more like a color in the mauve family on my skin tone. What I like about this lipstick is that it has a creamy feel on the lips, yet the density of a matte lipstick without the overly dry feeling. I would say that the texture is similar to Mac's amplify …Read more

MAC describes this blush as a plum shade. Although press release pictures renders it as plumish - picutures really don't do it justice. It's more of a muted midtone peachy/rose/light brown blush. It's simply beautiful!

On my NC45 coloring it looks like a combo of MSF Stereo Rose, MAC blushes Sunabasque and Pinch Me blended togehter. Since it's sheer I think it …

This is it, I found the holy grail of face powders! Good-bye Clinique, MAC MSFN, and Milani! This powder is beautiful. It was mentioned on a beauty blog and it even looked good on the screen. When I went to Sephora I was truly impressed by the color match. I bought the color in Tan 40 which matched my skin beautifully (I'm on the lighter side of NC45).

What I like best about …

Polishes - L'Oreal Paris - Extraordinaire Gel-Lacque in Lacqueriste

Feb/09/2014

I really wanted to like this product, but sadly I was disappointed. Let's start with the good. The colors offered in the line are beautiful. I bought 715, nude (which is more of a dark plum nude, rather than peachy/pink nude) and 710 / Laqueriste which is a bright coral red. The first thing my co-worker said when she saw me with Laqueriste was that she wanted that polish. This polish gives …Read more
