Lipstick - CHANEL - Como

5.0

Aug/18/2008

found-perfect beigey-nude lipstick! I never thought I could wear a shade like this, but Como magically has just enough pink in it to be wearable, not too orangey, and a soft iridescence so that your lips don't look flat and dead. beautiful MLBB nude shade for me, I wear Chanel TI in Shell 1.5. Love to pair this with their Natural Liner and new Gold Light Glossimer-wore it with Le Bronze and …Read more

Lip Gloss - CHANEL - Aqualumiere gloss Ironic Tonic

Jul/25/2008

gorgeous, shimmering golden/plum with pinkish undertones-Ironic Tonic is surprisingly versatile and seems to work on a lot of complexions, especially given the range of rave reviews below! it works on my pale Irish skin too...I have hazel eyes, brown hair and wear Chanel TI in Shell 1.5 for reference...this has a lovely texture and while it is sheer, you can build up the color-also it seems to …Read more

Lip Gloss - MAC Cosmetics - Lil' Hot Pepper

I agree with a reviewer below who described this shade as a coral-rose shade with pearl....I wouldn't describe this as burnt red as the MAC website does...to me that's almost orangey and this gloss does not impart any orangey shades at all. it's a lovely warm vivid rose with coral undertones. works really well with my NW25 hazel/brunette coloring. it's so good I am thinking of …Read more

Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Mineralize Blush - Nuance [DISCONTINUED]

5.0

Jul/22/2008

Nuance is a gorgeous subtle peach/nude/golden glow on me-for reference my coloring is NW25 hazel/brown-it is reminiscent in texture and finish to the Chanel Joues Contraste line of blushes-at half the price. I would compare the shade to Chanel's now discontinued Reflex shade in that line...it's similar but not an exact duplicate. it imparts a lovely natural glow to my cheeks and looks …Read more

just wanted to add my two cents on this lovely blush-it has already been described perfectly as a luminous peachy-pink with subtle shimmer-a gorgeous sheer but buildable texture that is reminiscent of Chanel's famous Joues Contraste line of blushes-for half the price! this one is similar to Chanel Rose Petale, for reference. I am NW25 hazel/brown and this is a natural, healthy flushed glow …Read more

Eye Shadow - Lancôme - Color Design - Burnt Sand

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/21/2008

the perfect medium shimmering brown shade-Burnt Sand is not quite bronze, not exactly beige...it's deep enough for me to use as a crease/lid shade but not so dark that it's too much for daytime-and certainly not too shimmery. This is what I wanted MAC's Woodwinked to be-a medium shimmering brown, but what I got with Woodwinked is strong orangey/red undertones and wayyyyy too much …Read more

Fragrances - Dior - Miss Dior Cherie Printemps

5.0

Jun/16/2008

loving this new fragrance by Dior...I chose Miss Dior Cherie Eau de Printemps because it is just that-a lighter, springtime version of the original that doesn't seem quite so heavy in the summer heat. I don't own the original yet, but have been contemplating buying it since about March....discovering this version was great because the only thing holding me back from buying the original …Read more

Lip Gloss - CHANEL - Glossimer - Gazelle

another beauty from the glossimer line-Gazelle is a glowing peach-pink with lots of beautiful frosted shimmer-a very pretty color for summer. it's reminiscent of the glossimer shade Twinkle...but more pink than gold and not quite as frosty. I find Gazelle pairs well with their Rouge Allure lipstick in Exquise, which is a simlary pinky-peach shade.

stunning, stunning creamy hot deep pink-rose...almost fuschia...but not quite. beautifully shiny and pigmented. possibly the best Chanel np I've ever purchased. I love this shade for spring/summer with my LLL coloring...wearing this as a pedicure right now, but it would look great for an eye-catching manicure too...love it.

Self Tanners - Lancôme - Flash Bronzer Tinted Self-Tanning Leg Gel with Pure Vitamin E

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/17/2008

hands down the best self-tanning product on the market. mine does not indicate leg gel-it's called Flash Bronzer Glow n Wear Tinted Self-Tanning Gel for Body. I have the Shimmer formulation. I am fair-light skinned and I get great, non-orangey results from this. it dries quickly (so as to resist transfer) so it does require fast application-but even with that I don't have streaking …Read more
