Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Amplified Creme - Chatterbox

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/25/2013

Chatterbox is a really pretty opaque neutral toned pink - almost with a hint of coral. The formula is so creamy, it doesn't tend to dry out the lips. It's a nice bright color without being overtly neon. Although, I feel that sometimes, it's a little too bright for my taste, especially for a day time color. I like to use a little dab of gloss to tone it down a notch for a day at the …Read more

Blush - Annabelle - Blush On - Golden Bronze

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/24/2013

This is a beautiful pinkish bronze blush. It's very soft and super, super pigmented. The staying power is remarkable. I lasted a full 8 hour work day. Annabelle, despite being a Canadian drugstore brand, is on par with MAC and Nars when it comes to blushers.

I made the mistake of applying it with a dense blush brush (with a heavy hand, no less.) Like I said, this blush is very …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Matte Lipstick - Russian Red

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/13/2013

Viva Glam I is what started my love affair with red lipstick, but Russian Red is what really solidified it. Russian Red is a really intense medium red with a bluish undertone. It's a matte finish, so it can be a little drying, even with a primer. You could always try using an lip exfoliator before applying this.

This is an awesome "evening type" lipstick. I don't …

Eyeliner - Avon - Glimmersticks eye liner

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/13/2013

I purchased 5 of these (at $2 a piece) in two different finishes - 2 in Glimmerstick Diamonds (Golden Diamond and Twilight Sparkle) and 3 in Glimmersticks Chrome (Ultra Violet, Electric Pink and Night Star)... and boy was I disappointed.

The Diamonds are just okay. They tug and pull at your eyelids, but they're workable and they don't tend to dry out. They are the only reason …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Satin - Pink Nouveau

5.0

Apr/13/2013

I like to consider Pink Nouveau to be my HG pink lipstick. It is just the most beautiful cool toned bubblegum pink ever. The formula is rich and creamy and it effortlessly glides on to your lips without pulling or tugging. It is quite long lasting. I've lasted about 4-5 hours without any touch ups.

One thing that I've noticed is that it does tend to settle into my lip lines …

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Lustre - Greensmoke

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/12/2013

I have a love/hate relationship with MAC's lustre eyeshadows since what you see in the pan is not always what you get. The application is almost always uneven and extremely sheer. Greensmoke is one of MAC's better lustre shadows.

Greensmoke is an ashy olive green with equally ashy golden undertones and sheen. At first application it is a tad bit sheer, however, I find …

Blush - Hard Candy - Fox in a Box (all colors)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/10/2013

I'm a sucker for cute packaging. So when I first saw this at Wal-Mart, my initial reaction was "Oooh! Pretty box! They look just like the Benefit Box blushes!" Anyways, I picked this up in the color Smooth Talker, which is an obvious Benefit Sugarbomb dupe. I LOVE this color. It gives my cheeks a healthy peachy glow. My only gripe is that the color does tend to fade away after a …Read more

Pressed Powders - Smashbox - Photo Set Pressed Powder

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/10/2013

Smashbox has tons of great products. Unfortunately, this isn't one of them. I purchased this for $35 in the color Medium. I gotta say, this is perhaps the worst powder I've ever used. It does absolutely nothing for my skin. It literally sits on top of your skin because of how unblendable it is and worst of all, it settles into the expression lines making your face look …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Unlisted Brand - Spa Resource Makeup Brushes

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/10/2013

I have 7 of these brushes - Powder, Foundation, Stipple, Blush, Smudge, Cream Shadow and Eye & Brow Definer. I got all of these brushes for under $7 a piece, which in my opinion, is a pretty awesome steal. These are actually very good quality brushes. They're super soft and I've had almost little to no shedding during washes. The only brush that I probably don't like is the Eye …Read more

Makeup Brushes - bareMinerals - Heavenly Face Brush

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/09/2013

I got this brush for $30 at my local Sephora. This thing sheds like crazy. Now, I haven't had any shedding on my face, but when I wash this brush, the bristles just flare and drop out, which is a shame because this brush gives you some excellent coverage. It's absolutely phenomenal for applying liquid foundation.

I'm not sure if I just got that one bad brush out of the …
