I bought a couple of these and they became my go-to in the morning just because they’re quick and easy to apply and the colors I bought were nude and have a natural finish. However, they smear like a mofo. All I have to do is be wearing this at work for like an hour, and then go to check my face in the mirror and I’ve got a Picasso mouth. And that’s with a lip primer underneath! Now that it’s …Read more

Palettes - Urban Decay - Naked Smoky Eyeshadow Palette

Sep/22/2017

This is my least favorite NAKED palette. I feel like there’s too many shimmery shades in here for a smoky eye, and a lot of the colors are very similar to each other. I’m also not impressed with the formula on a lot of these. Most of them require a lot of building and I just don’t have time for that in the morning! I also don’t think this palette is very cohesive- even sitting next to each other …Read more

I wanted to like this. I know most people do... but for me, I just kind of don’t get it. I wouldn’t say this is full coverage... it’s pretty thin, and I felt like it has almost like... a powdery texture as opposed to a cream? I mean, it’s obviously a cream but it just feels dry to me in a way. It doesn’t crease, so I’ll give it that. It also doesn’t cake up, so that’s another good aspect. But it …Read more

Eye Shadow - LORAC - Unzipped Desert Sunset Eye Shadow Palette (Limited Edition)

I used to think Naked 3 or Lorac Pro were my favorite eyeshadow palettes... not anymore. This pallette, first off, has really interesting packaging (points off for no mirror, though.) the top is creased so that it pulls back in sections... hard to explain... weird, but cool. And it’s overall lightweight and pretty.
The actual shadows though... this might be the first, THE FIRST, pallette …

LORAC dominates, in my opinion, when it comes to powder based products. However, they can be a bit spotty in other areas. I love LORAC to death, but this foundation is just a no, from me. I bought this foundation in tan, to mix with my regular foundation for the summer. Usually I’d do about 1-2 pumps of this to 1-2 pumps of my regular (too faced “born this way.”) first of all, its extremely …Read more

It's like LORAC entered my dreams to create the most irresistible makeup item on the planet. There's no way I couldn't love this. Highlighters are my favorite product, LORAC is my favorite brand, the colors are perfect for cool toned, fair skin, and the packaging is LIFE.
Like, can we talk about the packaging? I know it's Pirates of the Caribbean (obviously) and I'm …

This would probably work well for someone who doesn't wear a lot of eye makeup. The coverage is good and the consistency is nice and thick (without being caked) BUT it never totally dries down. It's very shiny and wet-looking. I understand why, I mean, it's trying to be illuminating and reflective. However, even when set with powder, the wetness of this will make your eye makeup …Read more

Jan/05/2017

I got this as a sample from Sephora and when I first sprayed it, the words that immediately came to mind were "grandma death bomb" for some reason. It's not a classic rose scent, and it's not even necessarily "old" smelling, but something about it, to me, is just... stuffy. I wasn't a fan. But, I've worn it a few times when I don't want to waste my …Read more

Dec/20/2016

I got this as a sample with my Sephora order and I am OBSESSED with it. Take all my money, Marc Jacobs! I need this in every size. It's the perfect distinct, woody, sexy smell. It lasts all day and a little goes a long way. I'm always on the lookout for fragrances that are sultry and sexy without being too overtly feminine- I don't like smelling like candy or a rose garden. This is …Read more

Nov/27/2016

Whoever named this product has probably never had good, or even decent, sex. I received a sample of this with a too faced holiday set. I hate it. The brush it a mess waiting to happen, it's HUGE and weirdly shaped and just comes loaded with product when you pull it out of the tube. It looks ok on, but not anything special, and it's a very wet formula so you have to be really careful to …Read more
