Eye Shadow - Kiko Cosmetics - Long Lasting Eyeshadow Stick

I really can’t add much more than what’s already been said. KIKO MILANO is a very slept-on brand! these shadow sticks are incredible quality at an outrageously low price! you really can’t choose a “bad” color because they are all beautiful.

i’m writing this review based on the experience i had with axiology’s $2.00 samples. i ordered a few, and while i wasn’t expecting a ‘mini’ lipstick or anything like that, what i received was just ridiculous! one sample had a decent amount of product, but the other two were merely smeared on the package, barely one uses’s worth. for $2.00! really?!? for the record, i wasn’t impressed …Read more

Eyeliner - NYX Professional Makeup - Slide On Eye Pencil - All Colors

3.0

7 months ago

sort of on the fence about NYX. i really like some of the lip liners, but other things are not-so-good. i bought this eye pencil in ‘pretty violet’, and while the color is pretty, it isn’t very pigmented, isn’t long-lasting AT ALL (especially if you have slightly oily lids), it’s too soft (to the point of frequent breaking and when you sharpen it you lose a lot of product to the sharpener) …Read more

Lipstick - Bobbi Brown - Nourishing Lip Color - All Shades

5.0

9 months ago

i’ve had my eye on this formula for a while, so decided to pick up a couple during the friends and family sale event (in ‘bobbi’ and ‘beige gold’). i really like them both. yes, the packaging quality needs to improve (especially for the full price of this lipstick!), but overall this is a great lipstick! VERY moisturizing, sheer color. bobbi is a beautiful mauve/brown which is pretty much …Read more

Lipstick - Tarte Cosmetics - Tarteist Matte Lip Paint

well ... i received this as a free birthday month gift from ULTA. thank goodness it was free! i have it in the color ‘homeslice’. seems that tarte spent more time and effort on cutesy, cringeworthy, culture-vulture names of the different colors than on the actual quality of the product itself. homeslice is a peach/nude — a pretty color on brown skin — HOWEVER, the texture is very …Read more

rum raisin is another beautiful offering by bobbibrown cosmetics — a lovely plum/brown that can be worn everyday any season and for any reason. lights up the complexion. i’m a brown-skinned person, and this shade loves my skin. i may not carry hot sauce, but i’ll always have this lipstick in my bag!

NARS orgasm lipstick is a very pretty rose/gold sheer shimmer wash of color for your lips. a beautiful summer color for us brown-skinned beauties! i use a brown lipliner. only 'con' to this is that the color doesn't apply as evenly as i would like and am used to, so they need to improve the formula in that regard. it sort of reminds me of the lipglass 'pinkarat' from …Read more

May/26/2018

alright, i'm super late to the NARS orgasm frenzy, but i received a free mini of this as the birthday gift for 2018 from ulta. it's a very pretty color that at first i thought was too light for my complexion (caramel brown), but after a few tries i realized that i can use this in many different ways to brighten up/top off lipsticks (adds a bit of frosty sheen to nudes, browns, muted …Read more
