Pros: Great portable size, lovely packaging, smooth formula, nice effort to be "green," interesting shades

Cons: Oxidizes on me after a few hours, gets too oily, breaks me out (must be the talc).

I would recommend this for people with dry, relatively clear, fair/rosy-based complexions who do not have sensitivities to talc. It is a dream to blend and a pleasure to …

Highlighters - MILANI - Illuminating Face Powder

Apr/25/2012

Beauty's Touch (the pink/coral one) is a true satin highlighter/blush. I have to use a very dense brush (not a regular blush brush - a kabuki here) to get enough color BUT the result is a very refined, natural looking tint appropriate for work or play. I used to never wear blush and this is a nice compromise between no blush and too much. This is what I wanted Diorblush to be - a hint of …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Desert Essence - Fragrance Free Hand and Body Lotion

After applying this lotion generously to my hands, they seem more prone to cuts and bruises (too soft?). I also hate that SD alcohol is one of the first five ingredients. But I love the natural, light honeysuckle fragrance and, tired of tender hands, I apply it to my hair as a leave-in conditioner and it works fantasticlly. No frizz, softer & shinier hair, and it's not heavy or sticky …Read more

Lots of fallout, but if you love super glittery white/silvers and are not afraid of the fallout (a good example would be kitchsmas). you'll love this. to me, the white/silver is very much like the white side of Nars' pandora... it's a just very OTT, but there's a time and place for that, too. Just pack it on with a wet brush, clean up the fallout, and you have a glitter …Read more

Palettes - Smashbox - Glambox Vol 4

Created with Sketch.

Nov/07/2010

This was a nice intro to Smashbox, albeit a pricey one that didn't really live up to their standard product line. This set came with a set of cream eyeliners with a WONDERFUL angled eyeliner brush. The cream eyeliners were sparkly charcoal, blue, copper, and black. They were great but the pop-up lids weren't very secure, so they dried out quickly. The cheek palette in close-up …Read more

Cleansers - BORGHESE - Gentle Foaming Face Wash

This face wash comes with a revitalizing mask (which I haven't tried yet) in a set sold by Costco. First, this comes in a very pretty, functional squeeze tube. Second. the formula feels nice and rich (and smells a little like vanilla) and rinses off very cleanly. It gets rid of makeup well; basically it does what a good face wash should. My face feels pretty darn happy afterwards. I …Read more

Cheap and beautiful. The sparkle reminds me of BB's shimmer shadows for a fraction of the price. I don't even need a primer to make the color shine through - though haven't tried out the wear time in extreme conditions. The shimmer makes my eyes itch after a full day though. :/
