Fragrances - Marc Jacobs - Cranberry Splash

3.0
Created with Sketch.

May/26/2011

Cranberry was the second of the Marc Jacob's Cocktail splashes I got to sample. I had high hopes after loving each splash in last year's Patisserie collection, but my hopes were dashed, I'm afraid.

Cranberry does accurate smell like its namesake. But there's something just a little bit synthetic about it. I can't imagine too many people wanting to smell like …

Fragrances - Marc Jacobs - Ginger Splash

May/26/2011

After loving last year's Pattisserie line of splashes from Marc Jacobs, I was eager's awaiting 2011's line. The Cocktail collection was announced and I rushed into my nearest Sephora to try them out.

Unfortunately, this year's collection doesn't measure up to 2010's. I'm not a fan of ginger in general, but I was urged to give it a shot. Normally I …

Concealers - MAC Cosmetics - Select Moisturecover

This is my new holy grail concealer! It has a wonderful consistency and is sheer enough not to look cakey, but covers blemishes and undereye circles perfectly. It can be layered nicely as well for more problem areas. I use this underneath MAC's Mineral Skinfinish Natural as a foundation and am set for the day. My skin has never looked nicer/more natural.

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Orange Tangent

This gets a big plus from me. I had been looking for a nice orange to fill out my color palette and this is it. Unlike other reviewers, this shadow does not appear golden or peach on me. It is a true light orange. Not harsh or garish, but intense as well. Very pretty for the summer.

Grr. I've started to come to the darkside when it comes to Luster eyeshadows. Somehow I've managed to fall in love with Aquadisiac and D'Bohemia, but I still don't like the way they seem to flake all over and the glitter gets all over my face when I apply them, so I passed Goldbit over automatically. I finally went back after reading all the raves to give it a fair shot and …Read more

Lip Gloss - MAC Cosmetics - Lipgelée

I'm torn on this one. I'm attracted to coral-based lipcolors quite naturally so I picked this color out first from the lipgelee line. I find this to be a less sticky, although just as thick version of the Lancome Juicy Tube. This applies nicely and feels good on my lips, but there is no color to it whatsoever. So it is comparable to any of the other colors in the line. It is a bit …Read more

Lip Treatments - MAC Cosmetics - Aquamelon tinted lip conditioner

Jun/10/2005

After reading all the raves on the boards I was excited to try this product. My lips are quite sensitive and tend to get dried out so I was happy to find a product geared towards that with great pigment and shimmer. Unfortunately, this was a huge letdown. The product itself is so sheer and greasy that it does nothing for me. The color wears away quickly and it feels vile on my lips. I …Read more

I didn't bother trying this lipglass after seeing it in the tube because I was sure it was too intense and dramatic for my fair NC15 complexion. It is the warmest bronzed red. It can be layered for a dramatic look or applied sparsely for a more natural sheered look. Very versatile. I love this since I have a hard time finding suitable red lipcolors. I hate that this is limited edition …Read more

Makeup Brushes - MAC Cosmetics - 266 Thin Small Angle (natural hair)

This is a fantastic brush. I bought it about ten years ago to apply powder shadows to my brow with. I lost that one over time, but was lucky enough to rediscover this great brush when the fluidlines were released. This is just stiff and just pliable enough to use with both powder and emmolient mediums. I love this for creating a solid line with my fluidlines. Wetting it in advance can also …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Paint - All

I really like MAC paints. I had not been able to find an acceptable creaseless eyeshadow base for a long time when I received Untitled paint in a swap several years ago. It was my wonder product. I apply it as a base every day to ensure that my shadows don't crease. It is also the perfect nude neutral so it doesn't mess with the natural pigment of any eyecolors. Unfortunately, I …Read more
