Upon first use, I fell in love with this product – however, the love affair fizzled out fairly quickly.

Originally I purchased an insanely overpriced gift set which contained mini’s all 3 shades and I loved the way this made my skin look and feel so much that I immediately went and purchased the full size in Apricot Glow. At first, I really noticed a vibrant and healthy glow; then maybe …

Lipstick - NARS Cosmetics - Lip Cover - Under Arrest

The Lip Cover line is made up of limited edition shades which are released periodically. I have only picked up this shade Under Cover. I adore this shade and formulation, which has become a day-time go to for me.

Under cover is an extremely unique shade and I have nothing else like it in my collection. Its a peach y beige mixture which really brightens up my complexion and is quite …

Lip Gloss - NARS Cosmetics - Full Vinyl Lip Lacquer

Nars is my go-to for glosses, so when they released a new "vinyl" shine limited edition line I had to jump on it! I am so glad I have added these to my collection!

These are very pigmented - dare I say more so than Nars regular gloss line? Yup, slightly - I'd say that is due to the formulation being slightly thicker. This line gives Mac Lip Glass vibes when it comes to …

Lip Gloss - NARS Cosmetics - Lip Gloss (All Shades)

Nars glosses are my absolute favorite! I have no idea why it has taken me so long to add a review, given that I have been using them since (gulp!) the early 1990’s. While I loved them then just as much as I do now, the color saturation and formulation has improved by leaps and bounds in the past few years.

Nars glosses glide on smooth, are never too sticky, and the shade range holds …

I wasn’t wow’d by this line – nor did I loathe them. These are just kind of “meh” to me.
Nars advertises these as a hybred btw a gloss and a semi-matte – I suppose this is true, depending on the shade you try (more on that later). However, a semi-matte would and should have more staining and staying power than these do. I find the wear time to be very disappointing – while some last longer …

Lipstick - NARS Cosmetics - Powermatte Lip Pigment

5.0
Created with Sketch.

7 months ago

I would say powermatte is a kinda deceiving name for this line – they are semi matte and do take quite a while to dry down. These go on opaque and there is no blotch or patchiness at all. The formulation is very thin yet incredibly pigmented. These don’t feather or ride outside of lines so they don’t call for a liner. The applicator is great AND the packaging design shows the color of each …Read more

Lipstick - PAT MCGRATH LABS - LuxeTrance Lipstick (all)

3.0

7 months ago

While PM's Matte formula is hands down my HG lip formulation, I am sad to say I was highly disappointed in the LuxeTrance formula. OK so to be fair, this isn't a bad product at all - its just that its not all that special or unique.

Sure, this is a nice comfortable lipstick - its very opaque (one swipe coverage) and creamy, with many available shades in the range. But …

Lipstick - NARS Cosmetics - Nars Audacious Lipstick - Aya

4.0
Created with Sketch.

11 months ago

Had this not been on sale I would have never picked this one up. While I am a huge fan of the Audacious formula and own many, this is a cool toned deep chocolate brown [think cacao not milk chocolate] which almost leans grey in undertone on my warm skin, leaving me to look a bit paler than I already am. I know, scary, right? One would think but nope! This shade works as a wonderful base color for …Read more

Palettes - Anastasia Beverly Hills - Norvina Eyeshadow Palette

5.0
Created with Sketch.

11 months ago

This is the first and only palette I own which features pink and purple shades (I typically go for warm palettes) – it is also the only one I will ever need. The color story of this palette is just stunning IMO; I can state with all honesty that I love every single shade. I find these all to apply well and I get no patchiness. Application is smooth, and the colors are easily buildable. For me …Read more
