Eyeliner - NARS Cosmetics - Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner - Rue Saint-Honoré

This is an awesome product. It is a twist up pencil shaped like a pencil you sharpen. The cap on the top comes off to reveal a sharpener underneath. The packaging is amazing.

The Rue Saint-Honoré is a blackened royal blue. This is what I was hoping MAC Prussian would be. Prussian lacks the pigment and fades over the course of my day. The Rue Saint-Honoré is more pigmented and …

Polishes - Unlisted Brand - Hand & Nail Harmony Gelish Gel Polish

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/09/2011

I have embarked on the badwagon of the DIY gel nails. After having the service done every 2 weeks in a nail salon, I finally decided to bite the bullet and splurge.

I love my gel nails, I have soft brittle thin nails. I have worn acrylics for 10+ years and I will never go back. A regular nail polish mani lasts 2 days for me....with the Gelish I get at least 2 weeks. After 2 weeks …

Lipstick - Giorgio Armani - Rouge d’Armani 518 Dawn Pink

Feb/07/2011

From the Spring 2011 Armani Collection.

Oh the anticipation! I was waiting and waiting for this lipstick. I got it in the mail, ripped the package open and turned the tube up for this icy sheer cool toned soft pink shade. There is some shimmer to the lipstick, but it's not quite a frost. It gives the color a nice shine. If layered too much this lipstick can become streaky. …

Lip Gloss - CHANEL - Glossimer - Pink Pulsion 247

This looks bright pink in the tube, however goes on to look like a kiss of pink. This seems to have more sparkles in it than some of my other glossimers (pin up, myraid, brilliance, moonlight). However, I like it quite a bit. This looks nice over a nude lipstick like MAC Creme Cup for a nice fall look with a smokey eye. Upon one pass, the formula feels drier and not as hydrating or as gel …Read more

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Blush - Sex Appeal

I'm a PPP (nc/nw 20) and horribly allergic to Benefit's Dandelion (or the vast majority of their box of powders)....I LOVE THIS! Squee! This is a brightening blush for me. It's not too cool, it's not too warm. I have paired this up with my NARS volga matte l/s and a little bronzer...and I'm loving it. This color does require more of a heavy hand to deposit the …Read more

Lip Gloss - Illamasqua - Intense in Move

Nov/14/2010

OMG! Run and don't walk to the sephora website...or your local sephora (if they carry Illamasqua). This is described as a muted thistle heather. I say it's a MLBB color, perfect for fall nude look. It's a purple grey mauve color. It has a hard plastic slant tipped applicator that is clear. The cap you pull straight up and you don't screw it on. That will take some …Read more

Foundations - MAKE UP FOR EVER - HD High Definition Foundation

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/07/2010

I had high hopes for this foundations...however it blows chunks. It felt thick and cakey on my face...it turned me into a giant zit when worn for one day. It got greasy with different primers underneath (MUFE HD primer, UD brightening primer, Photo Finish). Maybe great for print/photo makeup but definitely not an every day wear. Ugh! Want over. I am using Lorac Breakthrough Performance or …Read more

Eye Primer - NARS Cosmetics - Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/07/2010

I was optimistic at first, however I was greatly let down. This has a great feel. The primer slid on with a lot of slip. It felt very siliconey. The shadow glided on much better than UDPP. However, about 3 hours into the wear my NARS shadow was a hot creased up mess. I tried this again and again. There is no hope for this primer and I. We are now ending our relationship. Back to my UDPP …Read more

Aug/08/2010

Ok UD, you have a reputation for making amazing products. Then, you put them in the crappiest packaging known to man. These powder pouf things are disgusting! They build up bacteria. It is a sponge. I tried mine out a few times to be sure I would like it. I went to the MAC store and got a sifter container and poured the contents into the sifter container. This made my life a lot …Read more

Blush - Rock & Republic - Contrived Blush - Spank [DISCONTINUED]

First off, I more than likely would not repurchase because I will NEVER run out of blush. There is a crapola load of blush in these little buggers! The blush is uber pigmented. It's a neutral-cool toned matte pink. I put my brush in and put it on my cheek and was like WOAH! I used too much. A little goes a loooooonnnnnnnnngggggg way. These are more pigmented than my NARS blushes. …Read more
