Lip Liners - Urban Decay - 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/21/2018

I LOVE lip liners. I’ve always worn them, even before the resurgence of their popularity. My lips are quite pigmented, but they have an area still part of the lip shape but without pigmentation, so they are literally begging to be “over lined“ - which ends up being about 0.5 to 1 mm outside pigmented region of my lips, but never ends up looking like overlining because of what I was trying to …Read more

Liquid - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Face and Body Foundation

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/16/2018

I thought I would have reviewed this already as I have repurchased and will repurchase this. It is one of my HG make-up products. I have dry skin with some pigmentation/unevenness but most days I only want light coverage and don't have time for precise application so I go for quick and easy products like BB creams or this. This foundation is indispensable for me because of the ability to …Read more

Lips - MILANI - Color Statement Matte Lipstick

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/14/2016

I have these win Matte Orchid and Passion. They are the best drugstore mattes along with maybeliine for my dry, pigmented lips. They're super intense in color and cover well in one swipe, though I put more because it felt nice enough and I wanted to pack on the pigment. No patchiness, at least for these shades. I had not used them in several months and I put on Matte Orchid today and it …Read more

Lipstick - Marc Jacobs - Le Marc Lip Creme

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/04/2016

I was looking into updating some of my most used lipstick shades to higher end brands such as givenchy. I checked out Mark Jacobs Le Marc shades at Sephora. I tried all the neutral, rosey, mauve or nude shades; in the tube, I thought I wanted something like Infamous, but the shade that worked the best on me was kiss kiss bang bang. For reference, I have fair cool toned skin (nw7-ish), pigmented …Read more

Bronzers - Almay - Smart Shade Bronzer in 040 Sunkissed

5.0

Sep/05/2012

I wouldn't buy this again simply bc I just decided I simply don't have time to contour properly so I put this up for swap along with all my other bronzers. When done right this works, but I just don't have the time or patience.

This item is really not bad at all. I see the reviews are mixed. My guess is the application is important. If you use a flat top brush (corner) …

Polishes - Butter London - Tea with the Queen

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/03/2012

I am an avid nail polish collector and I rarely ever wear nudes. Teals, sparkles, magnetics, glitter, holos... Stuff I like is generally decidedly unsubtle. But Tea with the Queen is honestly a color I adore. It's a neutral but unlike the more popular beigey/pinky ones, has a warm, caramel tint. I would have never purchased this had I not tried it at a friend's. I was pleasantly …Read more

Concealers - SKINFOOD - Salmon Darkcircle Concealer Cream

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/03/2012

The color and the concept is good - salmon color does balance the blue/green under/inner eye areas. However the consistency of this product just does not work for me no matter what I do. No matter how much I moisturized or blended I had one of two outcomes with this: Either looks caked on and thick and very obvious (racoon-eye-like) or if you manage to blend it in, then it's streaky and …Read more

Concealers - Clé de Peau Beauté - Concealer (All Shades)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/03/2012

I ordered this from Nordstrom since they take anything back. I was skeptical about a $70 concealer and Kim Khardashian endorsements and such. But my under/inner eye blue-ness really is the one issue I have with my make up so I gave it a try. This worked brilliantly for me! It does the trick and does not look caked on. I do recommend moisturizing. Applies easily with brush or fingertips. Does not …Read more

Fragrances - Hermès - Kelly Caleche

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/03/2012

Wow, I really was not expecting to fall for this one when I ordered a sample from Luckyscent. I have been putting it on my wrist and obsessively smelling it ever since I got it. Like many mentioned, I don't get a strong leather from this, more like an interpretation of leather by Ellena. The opening is light, sparkling. After it settles a little, the iris and the leather are more present …Read more

Fragrances - Hermès - Un Jardin en Méditerranée

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/02/2012

I tried this with some reservation since I spend my childhood summers in the Mediterranean and thus have made formative olfactory memories of the area. I was wondering how Ellena would interpret the warmth and beauty of the region. I was not disappointed. This was actually not what I expected, yet truly evocative of a Mediterranean garden. Less floral and more herbal, and that is a great thing. A …Read more
