Liquid - MAC Cosmetics - Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation

Jun/08/2015

PROS: Finally a perfect color match from a MAC foundation! This NC20 is just slightly lighter and more neutral (less yellow) than it's Studio Fix Fluid counterpart, and suits me perfectly (for reference I am: MUFE HD #118, GA Luminous Silk #4, Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hr in Light Neutral.

I also love how natural and skin-like this looks, and it feels like nothing on. Yes, the …

Liquid - Lancôme - Nude Miracle

Aug/10/2014

(NOTE: Lancome released this same foundation earlier this year in Europe under the name "Miracle Air De Teint." The USA version is the exact same formula and packaging, only the name is different.)

THE GOOD: Weightless, watery foundation feels like nothing and looks incredibly skin-like. This is a true "your skin but better" foundation. It's not about coverage …

Fragrances - Jo Malone - Velvet Rose Oud cologne intense

Created with Sketch.

Dec/27/2013

I've been enjoying samples of this for a month, and my wonderful husband bought it for me for Christmas (along with JM English Pear & Freesia). I have always loved all things rose, and I love the sexy treatments of rose with woods, ambers and incenses. Rose and oud isn't a novel concept by any stretch of the imagination, and countless other perfume houses have done it extremely well …Read more

Powder - CHANEL - Double Perfection Compact [DISCONTINUED]

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/26/2013

This is a creamy, dreamy, super-soft powder foundation with excellent coverage. Like other Chanel foundations, however, finding a color match for my pale but neutral skin tone was impossible. I settled on #35 Beige Rose... close enough because I loved the feel of it so much and wanted it to work. I tried it for 2 days, but it left me oily, shiny, and oxidized into a dark peachy pink. I'm …Read more

Liquid - NARS Cosmetics - Sheer Glow Foundation

Aug/26/2013

EDIT 6/8/15: I don't know why I thought Mont Blanc was such a good color match. It's actually a little too light for me, but it is still a beautiful foundation and I may get a darker shade and blend them eventually.

Mont Blanc is the best color-match I've ever found in a foundation, so that alone makes it worth it's weight in gold. I'm pale and have mild …

Aug/26/2013

After failing with Chanel Double Perfection Lumiere Powder, which left me an oily, oxidized mess, I decided to give this a try. I recently fell in love with the Sheer Glow foundation in the shade Mont Blanc, which is the best color match I've ever had, so I was curious to try the powder foundation in the same shade. And oh my gosh, this stole my heart! It's blendable and soft, looks …Read more

Foundations - Hourglass Cosmetics - Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation

Apr/16/2013

Beautiful medium coverage foundation for oily skin. Feels like nothing, applies like a dream with a flawless finish, wears very well and by end of day looks radiant and healthy. No oxidizing, no sliding or melting, no breaking down into an oily mess.

No foundation in the world will make oily skin stop producing oil. You'll probably still have to blot, but probably less with this …

Foundations - REVLON - Nearly Naked Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/12/2013

It's definitely not a dupe for UD Naked Skin Foundation, but it's a reasonably decent drugstore option for people with oilier skin looking for light/med coverage with spf. I bought it on a whim and out of curiosity, since I do like UDNSF but prefer a foundation with spf for daytime.

What I liked: the nice sheer, dewy finish and light as air feeling on my skin. Reliable …

Polishes - Butter London - Victoriana

5.0

Jan/12/2013

Wow. This is it. My HG nail polish. I never imagined I would love a polish SO much, but I can actually see myself coming back to this color again and again. It reminds me of faded velvet, Marie Antoinette, stately old libraries, handwritten postcards, baroque harpsichord music, afternoon tea, embroidery, and dewy spring walks in the garden. I'm in love.

Crème - CHANEL - vitalumiere Aqua Fresh and Hydrating Cream Compact Makeup

Jan/12/2013

EDIT--8/26/13 I had to return this after a couple of weeks because it was just too emollient for my oily skin. It would be fine for just a night out, but for an all-day foundation it just becomes an endless blotting and powdering situation. Too bad because it's a lovely product, and if your skin is drier than mine you'll probably love it!

ORIGINAL REVIEW-- I have both the …
