Fragrances - Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab - Pele

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/25/2012

I got this in a set of imps, and of the ten I got, Pele is easily my favorite. BPAL calls it a blend of "muguet and Hawaiian white ginger enveloped by warm, damp tropical blooms." I don't get ginger from it and I have no idea what muguet smells like, but this is a very pretty floral. I don't know enough (read: anything) about flowers to identify any of the ones here, but …Read more

Concealers - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Full Cover Concealer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/19/2011

MUFE Full Cover concealer is like applying paint to your face in the best possible way--it's extremely thick and pigmented. It blends well, as long as you work quickly, and dries down without feeling heavy or like it's sitting on your skin. I've never had any issues with creasing (and I have worn it heavily under my eyes) or oxidation. Will absolutely repurchase, in spite of the …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Lickable

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/19/2011

Lickable is hot pink/fuchsia with some shimmer that is barely visible in the tube and invisible on the lips. The finish is dewy and juuuuust shy of opaque, which I think adds seductive dimension. Like reviewers below, I prefer it to MAC's Girl About Town; Lickable feels fresher and pinker due to the not-quite-sheerness mentioned above, the lightness of the finish (Girl About Town feels and …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Pro Longwear Lipcreme in Perpetual Flame

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/19/2011

Perpetual Flame Pro Longwear is a dark pink/rosy light red. The color is gorgeous. It feels moist when you apply it, but dries down slightly tacky. I find it more comfortable than any other longwearing formula I've tried, but not as comfortable as a regular matte lipstick. It does wear for a long time, though not quite all day or through eating, and gets slightly drying first. I think it is …Read more

Lipstick - NARS Cosmetics - Funny Face

5.0

Funny Face is the best lipstick I have ever owned. It's a raspberry-fuchsia with a hint of blue pearl and a creamy matte texture. It applies easily without any noticeable scent, then lasts impressively well. The color is somehow both soft and dramatic. It's incredibly flattering, fun, and amazing quality. Highly recommended.

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Cremesheen Lipstick - Speed Dial

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/19/2011

Speed Dial is a pink lipstick that manages to be both bright and light, and it is extremely wearable. I would say that it is a slightly blue pink that's a bit too dark for me to call bubblegum with subtle golden shimmer. The Cremesheen finish is creamy and well pigmented, though maybe a little bit drying. It's a great one to try if you are shy about pale pink lipsticks.

Fragrances - The Body Shop - Woody Sandalwood

4.0

Woody Sandalwood oil applies smelling like soapy sandalwood, then dries down to smell like slightly sweet, powdery sandalwood and really nothing else. The wear is very good--it lasted me all day. Honestly, it was way too powdery for me, but it's good at what it does.

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Lipstick - Icon

4.0

Dec/19/2011

Icon is a really frosty, complex color. To me it looks taupe, but there are times when I'm sure it's warm toned, and others when I'm positive it's cool. I think at least some of the shimmer is silver. You really have to see it for yourself. The texture is excellent--creamy, comfortable, non-drying, and flattering. Frosts aren't as trendy right now as they once were, but …Read more

Lipstick - SHISEIDO - Perfecting Lipstick - P21 Praline

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/19/2011

Sheseido Praline is a solid "nude" lipstick. It's sort of a warmed up light tan color that's, yeah, a bit reminiscent of Angelina Jolie back when she only had one kid. It applies creamy and nicely pigmented with a soft sheen. On your lips it feels almost like lip balm. Wear is pretty god, but it has a slight tendency to highlight lip imperfections. There's also a slight …Read more

Lipstick - benefit Cosmetics - Silky-Finish Lipstick in Jing a ling

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/19/2011

When I first saw this color I fell in love. It's a soft pink--a little light but very wearable, maybe a hair on the cool side--with semi-sheer coverage. The finish is slick and a little shiny, with a hint of warm toned micro-shimmer. It's almost natural looking, and very pretty. A bit similar looking to Chanel Ming RA, IMO. Unfortunately, it needs a rather thin application to wear …Read more
