Misc Beauty Tools - Clarisonic - Pro Skincare Brush [DISCONTINUED]

Dec/31/2008

This brush has been a major lemming of mine for quite some time, but I could never bring myself to cough up the bucks for it, without knowing how I'd like it. I finally gave in for the Beauty.com 20% off sale - between the discount, no tax, free shipping (and a credit I had on my account), I got it for a great deal. My skin has been a challenge lately, as I've been dealing with an …Read more

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Crazed [DISCONTINUED]

Nov/21/2007

Get out your skunk brushes, this is one pigmented blush! I ordered this on the recommendation of some people on the board. Honestly, I was a little nervous it would be too bright for me, but I bit the bullet and tried it after looking at some pics in the MUA gallery of other people wearing. (I actually bought the 187 at the same time because I knew I'd need a good skunk to pull this one …Read more

Blush - Lancôme - Subtil Oil-Free Powder Blush - Miel Glace

Holy expensive blush, Batman! But I tell you what, this is the most beautiful, subtle blush! I was a little hesitant to get it at first, because when I swatched it in the store, it really didn't show up on my hand. The blush is a light pink/beige/nude, and is so gorgeous. So based on a ton of raves on the board, and the gorgeous color, I had to try it. I'm a LLL (bordering on PPP …Read more

Mascara - SHISEIDO - The Makeup Mascara Base [DISCONTINUED]

5.0

Nov/21/2007

When I first got this, I wasn't quite sure how to use it. My first approach was to apply it and let it dry before putting on my mascara. Big mistake. My lashes were super crunchy and it was nearly impossible to apply mascara.

This base is meant to be wet when you apply your mascara. So I apply the base after curling my lashes, and almost immediately, I apply mascara. I have …

Eye Shadow - Laura Mercier - metallic creme eye colour - platinum

Nov/21/2007

This is a very pretty shimmery champagne color on me. The cream formula doesn't crease at all (but then again, I use UDPP). This was the first metallic LM e/s I tried, and I will definitely buy some more of the colors. I probably won't repurchase this one in particular, as it's too similar to my MAC Stilife paint, which is much cheaper. But I do like the formula itself. I just …Read more

Eye Shadow - shu uemura - ME Brown 851

Nov/21/2007

I got this from Sephora, when they started carrying a limited selection of Shu Uemura. It was my first Shu shadow and I had seen so many gorgeous EOTDs using them, so I was totally stoked to try this.

I have to say, I wasn't terribly impressed. There's barely any pigmentation. The color is very pretty, though the taupe has some definite green undertones that may not be …

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Blush - Deep Throat

Nov/21/2007

I'm in love with this blush. It's the most beautiful peachy color with a hint of pink, and just the right amount of shimmer. This replaces Cargo The Big Easy as my go-to everyday blush. I'm very neutral toned, and this works perfectly for my skin tone. And you have to love the pigmentation of NARS blushes - I barely have to use any product to get the perfect color on my cheeks …Read more

Bronzers - BECCA - Pressed Bronzing Powder - Flamenco

Nov/21/2007

During the Sephora Becca frenzy, I picked this bronzer up for $8. I didn't know what to expect, in terms of color, since I ordered online. I could never use this bronzer in the summer, because I'm much darker then, but this is the perfect winter bronzer for me.

I wear this every day over foundation in the fall/winter. It adds just enough bronze to look natural - I …

Eye Shadow - BECCA - Eye Color Powder in Venise

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/21/2007

This is a very pretty shimmery peachy-pink color. It's great as a wash, and I actually also love it paired with MAC Trax. However, I do have to rant at the fact that the eye shadow is so fragile! I lost a small chunk out of the side of the pan, just from normal use with a brush! I can't imagine what would happen if I ever dropped it! Even with the indestructible packaging, I think …Read more

Highlighters - BECCA - Gypsy Pressed Shimmer Powder

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/21/2007

This is a very sheer, but very beautiful, highlighter. I had hoped I could wear it by itself as a blush, but it's a touch too light for that - at least for my preference. However, the gold shimmer in the powder looks amazing on your cheeks, so I like to layer it over another light blush.

I got this during the Sephora Becca frenzy, so I only paid about $8 for it. While I think …
