After much hype this product has been a total let down for me. It is SO beautiful to look at. And that's where the good points end.

I'm NW25 but can wear both warm and cool tones (I look better in the warm) and this blush is way too dark/pigmented for me. Even using a light hand and the 131 brush I came out looking like a clown. I'm hoping this summer when I get a …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Style Warriors- Brave New Bronze [DISCONTINUED]

I have sort of a love/hate going on with this lipstick. I was totally in love with the swatches I'd seen on peoples lips, hands, arms... the reviews were great from the people who went to pre-launch. I was lemming this color badly.
It looks pinkish in the tube, but on my lips its brown city and totally washed me out. It is also drying, which mostly has to do with the Satin finish. …

Polishes - Dior - Sweet Orange

Only available at Sephora the Dior Vernis nail polish in Sweet Orange is a gorgeous peachy shade w/ some gold sparkle to it in the light (click continued for a pic). It is similar to NARS Orgasm n/p but it's better. I call it NARS Orgasm on steroids. Dior has a better consistency to their polishes than NARS. A richer texture.
<P>

The price tag is high for nail …

I bought this lippie w/ the Sephora 15% off sale after reading the reviews here and seeing the pics (if you click continued I've added my own pic which is the lippie w/ no liner or gloss, 1 coat).
It is absolutely divine! It goes on smooth and lasted a couple hours on me. Even after eating and drinking I still had a tint of it left. The smell is awesome (like a margarita lol …

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Eye Shadow 4: Lucky Tom

Apr/02/2009

I was the first person to say how this palette wasn't worth buying because it was SO dupeable. After seeing a few FOTD's on YouTube I decided to swap for it. While I still feel that it IS dupeable it is an absolutely gorgeous palette. The packaging is really cute and for 4 eyeshadows the price is reasonable. If you don't have the dupes of these ones it's definately worth …Read more

Lipstick - GUERLAIN - KissKiss - 557 Flushy Beige

I saw this lippie swatched on KarlaSugars blog and HAD to have it. I was hunting for a new lippie during the Sephora 15% off deal. Normally I'd never pay $30 for a lippie lol anyway, the swatch looked GORGEOUS so I had to give it a go. The name of the lippie will totally throw you off the color.
There is no "beige" in this lippie. It should be called Berry Flushy because …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - What A Do! (Blonde Brunette Redhead)

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/29/2009

Ok. I'm going to be honest. This is the ugliest lipstick ever by itself. It is UBER frosty and is a brown/gold sheen. I'm MAC NC/NW20 for reference. BUT when you put a lipglass over it, ANY lipglass really, it is just gorgeous. I've used Monodramatic from the Monogram collection and Pink Grapefruit from Neo Sci-Fi and they've both been hits with What A Do!
I'm …

Misc Beauty Tools - Sephora Collection - Eye Makeup Remover Pen

Jan/24/2009

This is the worst makeup corrector pen I've ever owned in my LIFE. I used to use one by Bourjois but it was discontinued (or I guess I just can't find it?) so I needed to find something to replace that. I got this around Christmas time. The first time I used it it was pretty decent. This is the second time and it smeared the makeup all over my face. It was awful. I wiped the tip …Read more

Palettes - NARS Cosmetics - Best Palette (#9944) [DISCONTINUED]

Jan/16/2009

This is the best NARS product that I own. I own a ton of MAC, NARS, Dior & Chanel and this is the ONLY thing with any dips. I reach for it pretty much every day. The colors are all gorgeous and go together nicely. For NARS, the pigment is even good! Kalahari is my fav duo from NARS and I'm happy that these shadows are perm so I can restock once this palette is used up. If you buy …Read more

Eyeliner - MAC Cosmetics - Penultimate Eye Liner - Rapidblack

Jan/09/2009

I am absolutely impressed with this liner. I generally use the fluidlines from MAC, and, when I'm feeling really lazy, the kohls. Rapidblack is a DARK black that lines flawlessly. The tip is a lot more precise than I imagined it would be, so its really easy to work with. I don't have a problem with this showing up too light on me, it's absolutely perfect and I would definately …Read more
