Cleansers - AmorePacific - Treatment Cleansing Oil

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/12/2012

I love oil cleansers and was really excited to try the one from Amore Pacific. I am a long time user of the Time Response line and thought this might be a nice addition to my routine.


It is slightly thicker than my usual Shu Uemura A/O Premium Advanced but spreads nicely. Does emulsify beautifully and did a good job getting my base makeup off. It didn't do a great job …

Lipstick - Rouge Bunny Rouge - Murmurings

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/06/2012

Rouge Bunny Rouge has two lipstick formulations currently: a standard cream finish one, and a sheer lipstick formula. Murmurings is one of the sheer lipsticks. RBR's lipsticks have some of the nicest feel among the many higher end brands. This particular color applies incredibly pigmented. While the finish isn't as shiny as a lipgloss, it is very juicy looking. …Read more

Lipstick - SHISEIDO - Shimmering Rouge OR405 Sizzle

5.0

Aug/09/2012

This is a beautiful warm, sheer and shimmery orange. It looks alarmingly bright and orange in the tube. But the formula is incredibly light with a sheerness that allows your own liptone to mix into a very wearable color. I have very pigmented and cool-tone mauve lips and it slightly neutralized the color. It has small complex micro shimmers in silver that also cools the color a tiny bit. The …Read more

Eyeliner - Rouge Bunny Rouge - Raven Glaze Lacquer Eyeliner

I generally like these felt-tip type eyeliners and I do love the richly black pigmented black of this Rouge Bunny Rouge liner. It also has a firm and fine tip and so you can draw a very fine line. I am also a huge fan of this line and hate to write a negative review!


I have to agree with the other review that it has absolutely terrible lasting power on the lids. I do have …

Lipstick - Clé de Peau Beauté - Enriched Lip Luminizer

Jul/30/2012

These are very lovely lipsticks and the colors are juicy and beautiful. The formula looks a lot like Guerlain Rouge G Brilliant (the shiney, sheer formula), but has a slightly wetter and more pigmented look. The best part of these lipsticks are how beautiful they look on and the colors are very pretty. I own 207 and it is really one of my favorite lip colors. It is a warm strawberry …Read more

Powders - Edward Bess - Quad Royale in South of France

Feb/14/2012

This is a very pretty blush/highlighter. The other reviewer's description of the color as being mauvy is right on. This color is better suited for the paler among us as the color is very lightly pigmented. The shimmer is pretty subdued but does give a very slight glow to the skin. At the counter, the SA recommends swirling all the shades onto the brush and then applying the product in a …Read more

Lipstick - Edward Bess - Ultra Slick Lipstick in Rose Demure

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/14/2012

I really love two other EB lipsticks (Night Romance and Tender Love). I really am not liking Rose Demure on my lips. It is a lighter mid-toned cool rose. I can carry slightly cool toned colors, but this just makes me look dead. The formula seems to be a bit different with this new release of colors than the older set: less slip and a tiny bit drier. Pretty long lasting on the lips, but does …Read more

Mascara - GUERLAIN - Mascara noir G

Feb/01/2012

This is a very, very good mascara. Comparing it with the Le 2 Guerlain mascara, this is definitely a superior one. My chief complaint with the Le 2 was the droopy lash effect I had when using it. It was a major curl killer, but Noir G has a wonderful curl enhancing effect.


I think in the information materials for this product, it's supposed to be a be-all kind of a …

Loose Powders - Clé de Peau Beauté - Translucent Loose Powder

3.0

Jan/25/2012

This is an incredibly airy and finely milled powder. It looks slightly pinkish in the tub but is completely transluscent on the face. I had some pretty high expectations using this powder, but I don't think it's fully lived up to my expectations.

The container is glossy blue and looks wonderful displayed on a vanity, but it is impossibly messy to travel with. It has an …

Bronzers - CHANEL - Soleil Tan de Chanel Sheer Illuminating Fluid - Sunkissed

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/14/2012

This is probably one of the first illuminators that I'd ever purchased. When I first got it, I went nuts and applied it too heavily all of the face thinking it was more of a bronzer than an illuminator. Hello greasy looking giant pore-faced person! A more appropriate and better way to use it is either mixed into your foundation for a sheer and slight luminosity all over the face, or as a …Read more
