Lipstick - GUERLAIN - Rouge G L'Extrait - M65 Paresse

I agree with the previous reviewer: this mid-tone pink lipstick/gloss hybrid is probably better suited to those with cool-toned complexions. On a warmer complexion, it may look a little off, but on a cooler-complected person: just beautiful! I especially love that it strikes a balance between longevity and comfort; it may not hold up quite as well as many traditional longwear lippies (though …Read more

Crème - CHANEL - vitalumiere Aqua Fresh and Hydrating Cream Compact Makeup

May/13/2014

My skin is a troublesome mix: it's naturally on the oily side, but due to heavy use of acne treatments, is often dehydrated and flaky. I must admit that I was underwhelmed when the SA at my local Chanel counter tried this on me; she used both sponge and brush, one for each side of my face. Truthfully, both sides looked awful. The foundation emphasised everything I wanted to minimise: pores …Read more

Mascara - MAC Cosmetics - False Lashes

Jun/29/2011

I love this mascara! Granted, I do have fairly long lashes, but they are very fair, and need a great black mascara to really do them justice. Let's just say this product does the trick. I generally apply two coats (though one will suffice if I'm in a rush to get out the door) and never have any issues with it clumping on me. It can get a little smudgy with dampness or humidity. However …Read more

Treatments (Face) - DIFFERIN - Acne Treatment Gel

I am using Differin for the second time round, and I've been meaning to write this review for some time. However, I thought it best to wait until enough time had passed for me to really gauge its effectiveness. Suffice to say that the first time didn't go so well for me. If anything, my skin seemed worse than it was before I started on Differin, and my complete and utter disappointment …Read more

Liquid - NARS Cosmetics - Sheer Matte ] ] [DISCONTINUED]

Nov/06/2010

I tried this foundation after trying Sheer Glow, knowing, from the very beginning, that Sheer Matte would probably be a better match for my combo, acne-prone skin. However, I just couldn't resist trying Sheer Glow first, with all the hype surrounding it. And I must say that I did like some aspects of Sheer Glow; I liked the finish, the coverage, and was delighted to find that the shade (Mont …Read more

Concealers - NARS Cosmetics - Honey

Created with Sketch.

Oct/28/2010

Though I have plenty of Nars products, I hadn't really considered buying a concealer from the range until recently, when I was at the Nars counter buying my Sheer Matte foundation. In all honesty, I've never really been all that impressed with the way concealers perform -- or don't perform -- on my combination, blemish-prone skin. Often, they seem to vanish by day's end …Read more
