Polishes - Essie - Very Structured

Sep/09/2012

I found this Essie color on sale at Marshall's in the US for 3.99 and decided to try it - this and one other I bought are my first Essies.

This is a really nice color for fall, sort of a "deep neutral." It's like a mix of cocoa brown and brick red - I want to call it "cinnabar." It's a deep color but not bright and would probably be appropriate even …

Mascara - Tarte Cosmetics - Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-In-1 Mascara

5.0

Aug/02/2012

I got this as a Tarte sample and tried it for the first time and love it. It went on smoothly, and though the brush looked thick, it went on without clumping. Nice lengthening, some thickening, and the thing I like is it coated and defined every lash.
I'm a big fan of Tarte and I'm trying to move to more natural products, so this is a mascara I will definitely purchase when this …

Eye Shadow - Maybelline New York - Color Tattoo - Tough as Taupe

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/20/2012

This really is a good product for the price. The taupe color is very cool-toned and pigmented and gives a natural looking shadow to the lids. It goes on creamy and dries to a powder. It does have good staying power, though without primer, this creases (on me at least) after several hours. I've tried both brush and finger application and personally fingers are easier with this; afterwards I …Read more

Palettes - theBalm Cosmetics - Shady Lady Eyeshadow Palette - Vol. 2

5.0

Mar/17/2012

This is a great collection of 9 shadows which are a usable mix of neutrals and colors, darks and lights. Everything is nice and muted and all of the colors complement each other and can easily be combined together.
The shadows go on very smoothly and have lots of pigment so only a little is needed (at least on my skin, NW15). They have either a "glowy" satin finish or slight …

Polishes - Sephora Collection - Sephora by OPI - BYOBoy

5.0

Mar/11/2012

This is a beautiful muted medium rose color. It's still a nice vivid pink, yet it blends so well with my skin that there's something also very neutral about it. It's a cool pink and I think this would work with a lot of skin tones. Looks good for daytime wear but it would be a pretty special occasion color, too
Two thin coats is enough for opaque coverage, though I tend to put …

Palettes - Urban Decay - ROLLERGIRL Palette

Mar/03/2012

I got this from the UD website on sale for $13, and it was definitely worth the money - in fact, it would be worth even more for the 3 neutral shadows alone. My only "complaint" (really more of an observation) is that the shadows look warm-ish in the palette but look quite cool on my skin (NW15) but they're beautiful even so. The shadows have a good amount of shimmer but no …Read more

Fragrances - Elizabeth Arden - Sunflowers Eau de Toilette

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/13/2011

This is a very "bright" fragrance that is floral but also has some sharpness at first, then slowly melds into something a bit softer and muskier after a few hours (at least on my skin).
It's a pretty fragrance, very uplifting, and does smell like a rich bouquet of flowers sitting out in bright, warm sunshine.
Only drawback is that it can be strong at first, so I have to …

Blush - Physicians Formula - Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Blush - Rose

Sep/09/2011

I bought this based on the good review plus I just like PF's other products I've tried. I've wanted a brighter pink blush for a while for days that I feel particularly pale and need to look more awake, and this is certainly a very pink, pigmented blush.
I don't use the brush that came with it but when applied with a fluffy blush brush and a light hand, it gives a nice …

Polishes - REVLON - Nail Enamel - Copperglaze Platinum

5.0

Jul/23/2011

This is a great color. It's pearly/metallic, so the shade changes depending on the light and what angle you view it from. It can look light and pearly nude, or darker and more coppery. This is the color I wear when I can't decide which polish to put on my nails. The color is neutral enough to wear to work but more interesting than a "flat" nude color. Highly recommend!

Lip Gloss - Sephora Collection - Super Shimmer Lip Gloss - Rusted Rose

Jul/21/2011

Very happy with this purchase. The gloss has a nice consistency - liquid enough to spread but opaque enough that it has some color and coverage. It has a light scent which I like but no taste as far as I can tell. It lasts about 3 hours on my lips and is glossy but hardly sticky.
It's packaged in a squeeze tube with a slanted top to squeeze out and apply the gloss.
Nice color: a …
