Lip Treatments - Carmex - Moisturizing Lip Balm

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/17/2009

A cheap alternative to lip treatment. It is super greasy and thus moisturizes well and keeps lips nice and soft. A major downside is that it smells horrible to me -- sort of rubber-y and medicinal. Can't stand the way that I can constantly smell it on my lips, and the smell lingers for quite a long while. Will probably switch back to Smith's Rosebud balm or something unscented to avoid …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Molton Brown - Ultrasmooth Coco de Mer Body Lotion

I love the scent of this lotion, it's a very non-obstrusive, comfortable, calming scent. It moisturizes pretty well but is not very heavy-duty so I probably wouldn't use it in winter time. But at least it's not very greasy. The price tag is a bit steep, but I like how soft and velvety it makes my hands feel. It also helps that I got this lotion for free :)

Powder - Paul & Joe Beaute - Protective Dual Powder Foundation UV

5.0

Sep/28/2008

Even though some people have reported this to be powdery or too dry, I've been using this foundation almost daily for 6 months, and I don't find it powdery or drying at all. But those who are looking for more coverage should probably use a primer or concealer in addition. It's advertised to be a summer lightweight foundation with some protection. It's probably not moisturizing …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - JILL STUART Beauty - Day Care Essence [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/20/2008

Jill Stuart Day Care Essence is a makeup primer with SPF30 and PA++. It's creamy and slightly on the runny side, and very light-weight. It's slightly pinkish in color and has moisturizing properties such as strawberry juice, raspberry and grapefruit extracts. It's advertised as a daycare essence, but can also be used as a primer (which I believe is what most people use it for). As …Read more

Blush - JILL STUART Beauty - Mix Blush Compact

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/20/2008

I originally wanted to get the limited edition Illuminance mix blush compact with the special lace-design on the cover, but those were sold out everywhere, so I bought 06 fresh apricot from the normal lineup instead. Even though I really wanted the Illuminance blush, fresh apricot is beautiful and I'm immensely satisfied with my purchase. It gives a soft peachy glow to the face, and even …Read more

Lipstick - NARS Cosmetics - Honolulu Honey

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/25/2008

The perfect peachy nude color. It is classified as a satin, which is more opaque and less shimmery than a sheer. I find that it doesn't have a very good slip and lips need to be prepped before use, as the color lasts longer if lips are in a good condition. Honolulu Honey does a pretty good job in covering my pigmented lips and looks great with a heavier eye makeup. It does need to be …Read more

Lipstick - NARS Cosmetics - Sheer Lipstick - Dolce Vita

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/25/2008

I was contemplating on getting a more "natural" looking lipstick, and after reading all these raves about dolce vita on MUA, I knew which lipstick i'd be getting! So I have all of you ladies to thank, I think it's turning out to be a potential HG color! It's such a beautiful sheer pink -- not too mauvey and not too barbie pink. It's so flattering on my fairly …Read more

Highlighters - NARS Cosmetics - The Multiple - Copacabana

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/25/2008

I love the Multiples in general, and Copacabana is my favorite! It adds a beautiful sheeny glow to my face with very fine, very delicate shimmer and is never over the top. A quick swipe of this and my face looks awake and radiant, like I've slept for 8 full hours (instead of the actual 5 or less that I got...). It works with almost all looks and every makeup product that I've got. My …Read more

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - The Multiple in Malibu

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/25/2008

I never thought i'd ever pick a color THIS red as a blush or as a lip color since I'm normally a neutral girl. But it shows up surprisingly light and gives the most awesome flush on my cheeks, and it looks so natural, like i'm naturally blushing. Haven't tried using it as an eye color but I'm guessing it'll work best as a blush cuz reds generally look bad on my lids …Read more

Lip Gloss - NARS Cosmetics - Pillow Talk

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/17/2008

i received this l/g as a gift, and well -- i hated it. i have fairly light skin with pink undertone and this lip gloss is a bit more opaque and too "dark" for my taste (i prefer beige/nude glosses and lipsticks). nars website calls it "azalea pink" but it's actually very mauvey with blue undertones, so it clashed horribly with my skintone. i would have given it a bad …Read more
