Feb/15/2010

The other reviewers have already described the concept - it's a click pen with a broad brush (great for blending foundation in) and you can fill it with the foundation of your choice.

Some additional info:
(-) It's easier to fill it with liquid, runny foundation. I put La Prairie's creamy foundation into mine. I had to use a spatula to transfer it to the pen's …

Mascara - Max Factor - False Lash Effect

Mar/12/2009

I have naturally long, blonde lashes so all I am looking for is something that tints my lashes, separates them and keeps my curl in place. I had hoped that MF false lash effect would deliver this, but it seems I can't find a non-waterproof formula that fits the bill.

Ok, let's start with the packaging- who on earth designed this stupid tube? It's so fat, I can't fit …

Eye Shadow - Laura Mercier - Metallic cream eye shadow in titanium

May/22/2006

I own almost all shades of the metallic cream e/s and should LM release more I'd definitely purchase those, too. Titanium looks exactly like Stila's iris eye pot or like a metallic cream version of Stila's poise e/s. It's a red-based purple/plum shade with a shot of silver. It holds up on me all day without creasing and I successfully use these cream e/s as an e/s …Read more

May/15/2006

Pout lipslicks are among my top favourite glosses. Glamour girl is a pretty non-shimmery cherry red shade that might turn a bit pink on people who have usually got that problem. It's actually very similar to NARS scandal (shadewise, not consistencywise).

<BR><BR>

The consistency is kinda thick but non-sticky, you can sheer these glosses out or layer for a …

If you're searching for the lipshade of the Pout look that's floating around on MUA (redhaired girl wearing green e/s and a coral lip colour)- this is the shade you're looking for. Posh girl is the most gorgeous non-shimmery coral shade and it's one of my very favourite lipglosses. I have been looking for a wearable coral shade for ages and this is simply perfect. It …Read more

May/12/2006

I own almost all shades of the metallic cream e/s and should LM release more I'd definitely purchase those, too. Alloy is a taupe shade, it's more brownish than MAC paint in shimma and similar to Shu ME945/ Aveda Aura/ Becca Lame, the difference being that it has the metallic cream finish. It holds up on me all day without creasing and I successfully use it as an e/s …Read more

Eye Shadow - BECCA - Jewel Dust in Erzulie

May/11/2006

I have to start off saying that I am generally no fan of pigments and don't get all the rage on the boards. There are only 2-3 MAC pigments I like, many other shades would appeal to me, but it seems no matter which base I use they disappear on me. The same goes for Stila's loose AOS e/s, they don't show up on me properly and I just didn't put in the effort to try any other …Read more
