Blush - Beaute Cosmetics - liqui-gel stain in Fever

Apr/21/2011

one of the few lip products that I plan to repurchase when I run out. It is more then I would normally pay for a lip product, especially that I have to pay shipping..but I will save up.
It does not dry out my lips... it seems the more you layer it, the longer it lasts..but it also gets more intense (of course ha). I have all the stains, and typically layer the lighter 2 because one is too …

Lips - COVERGIRL - Outlast Lipstain (All)

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/21/2011

If you buy these, save the receipt. Mine dried out in 2 weeks MAX. :( I wont even bother commenting on the colors (I had to mix 2 together, but it turned out nice) as they are useless to me if I have to repurchase every 2 weeks.
They are a little drying also, I can see it being a problem long term for many.

Lipstick - COVERGIRL - Lip Perfection in Sultry

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/21/2011

I'm giving this a 4, because I cant do 3.5, but to be honest I've only had it a couple days.
I just wanted to help others looking.
I tried these because I'm looking for a light weight, not obvious finish. These have that, but only if I blot them as oppose to Nars sheer formula, or the chanel one I have that just apply that way for me.
Sultry is a brown kind of …

I added a photo up top but will post the link here also at the end of the review.
SULTRY is a non concealer type nude...
SMOLDER is a step darker, richer then slutry. It's the warmest out of all the 5. It's a brownish mlbb shade.
FERVER is a berry, brown...lovely punch of color without being too loud type of color. It doesn't scream brown in the least but has just …

Primer/ Corrector - Smashbox - halo yellow color correcting hydrating powder

Jan/20/2011

I am on the fence about repurchasing this or not. I find it to feel dryer then the regular halo powder..though it could be the lighter color showing up in flakes I may have on my nose..telling me so. It is a great idea (this one in particular is expensive side) I am going to try this comparing it more with the left side of my elf finishing powder. The smashbox so far does offer a bit more redness …Read more

When I first tried this one I wasn't sure how Iiked it. Granted...I was ligther in skin tone, and it's possible I was touch reder in the face from sensitivity, I don't remember. .
.I am NC25 at the moment, with brown eyes that are more hazel green tinted then the golden honey brown kind.
The shadow finishes are on the matte side, BUT not dull, flat or dry. My only thing …

Eye Shadow - REVLON - Colorstay 12-Hour eyeshadow quad- Copper Spice

I always give these quads only 4 lippies due to the poor package imo. The hinges can easily break on me.
This is one of my favorites of the colorstay quad line. NC20-25, brown hair brown hazel green eyes, goes with anything I am wearing. Very flattering. Lasts all day for me. I do apply over some sort of primer, but have applied damp to my bare lids and it works well.

Eye Shadow - Cargo Cosmetics - Essential Eye Palette in Dark/Neutral

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/05/2010

Sturdy package, great mirror! travels great.
I love the finishes (nothing is too flat or shimmery) and colors, the quality is wonderful. I tried the neutral warm one first and prefer the finish and color of this one. The other seemed to have some glitter sparkles which aren't horrible, but I prefer the finish of this dark/neutral better. This one also seems warmer, I prefer that also …

Pros:
When I tried on the shadows I was really surprised that they weren't as frosty on the eye as I was expecting, Yay! It is a little, but not too bad as long as I keep the application light and don't pile it on. (not a problem) They blend wonderful.
Did I mention I love the blush? :) fantastic! and I love the combo of it with the eyeshadows! It's matte, but if I like I …
