Lipstick - Marc Jacobs - Le Marc Lip Creme

Feb/26/2016

I have this in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. It's my first Marc Jacobs lipstick and I'm not impressed. The color is awful. It's a mauvy-pink that looks cheap and dated. It has a frosty element to it that makes it look like something from 1986. This lipstick looked streaky on me. There are two good things to report on: the case is cute and the actual lipstick doesn't have any scent that …Read more

Lipstick - Sephora Collection - Rouge Cream Lipstick

I think I've found my HG lipstick. I had no idea when I started coloring my hair red that I'd have such an awful time finding lipstick that does not clash horribly with it. I've been wanting a reddish color, but nothing has seemed to work ... until now. I picked up #18 Oh Oh this weekend and it is perfect. Sephora's website says that it's a muted pinky brown. I don't …Read more

I have been buying lip stains for years, and every single one of them has been crap. These, however, are awesome. They go on highly pigmented and the lasting power is pretty good. I can get a good 5 hours or so out of them, including eating and drinking. I do put a bit of clear gloss on top because they are somewhat drying, but that's a compromise I'll gladly make because I really do …Read more

Lipstick - REVLON - Colorburst Lip Butter - Pink Truffle [DISCONTINUED]

Jan/05/2012

I haven't written a makeup review in forever because I haven't bought anything in forever that was worth reviewing.That said, this Lip Butter in Pink Truffle is one of the best things I've picked up in, well, forever.

Pink Truffle is a slightly brownish-pink--definitely a MLBB color. I've got a pale, cool skin and auburn hair, and it gives me enough color and …

I hate to be a party pooper, but I don't like this lipstick. It wears off SO quickly. It also dries out my lips. This color did not work for me, either. It's more of a tomato red, which does not work with my fair, cool-toned coloring.

I picked this up in Rapid Red. I love it! The color is a gorgeous firetruck-red--very cute on my fingers and toes this summer. I like the wide brush. The coverage is really good. If I am in a hurry, one coat does the job. I haven't had any clumping problems. I normally put on two coats and then top with a gel-based top coat. My nails look really good for at least a week.

Not impressed. This is the gloopiest mascara I've ever bought. Applying it straight out of the tube is asking for clumpy lashes. I suppose I could wipe most of the mascara off the wand before applying, but I shouldn't have to! I usually love L'Oreal's mascaras, but this one stinks.

I recently picked up two of these (Delectable and Succulent) at Target. They normally run about $10, I believe. On sale, I got each for $5 or $6. Delectable is a sheer cherry red gloss and Succulent is a sheer pink gloss. Both are very pretty, and and they build up well if you want to get more color out of them. They aren't very sticky and they seem to really moisturize my lips. Lasting …Read more

Lip Gloss - Sephora Collection - Super Shimmer Lip Gloss in Bronzed Beauty

Feb/12/2009

I got an email with an offer for three free little Sephora lipglosses (birthday promotion). Bronze Beauty is one of the three. I didn't expect to like it; with my coloring, anything bronze on me looks dirty. This, however, looks great with my fair skin. It's a reddish-berry lipgloss with gold shimmer. It is so pretty! I like the consistency; it's not too thick or thin. Staying …Read more

I realize I am too old to run around with glittery eyelashes -- but I can't help it. I like glitter and shine, so when I saw this, I had to get it. Turns out, I don't have to worry about looking like I'm 15, because you can't see anything remotely glittery on my lashes unless you are eyeball-to-eyeball with me, and even then, there's not much to see. Basically, this is a …Read more
