Cleansers - LUSH - Fresh Farmacy Cleanser Bar

Jan/17/2004

This comes in the form of a solid pinkish chunk with little peices of dried leafy/herby things on one side. As a cleanser it was just average. It wouldn't take away a lot of makeup, but it was enough for simple cleansing. It didn't leave my skin dry and bare-feeling. The scent was pleasant and not too strong. The texture was soft although it didn't lather much.

The one …

Loose Powders - Calvin Klein - loose powder

This powder is very natural without any powdery-ness or cakey-ness. It doesn't make my skin look dry either. It goes on very lightly. Has no scent. The case it comes in is a shiney silver one and the puff is nice and soft.

Scrubs - ORIGINS - Swept Away

Mar/22/2003

I bought Never a Dull Moment but had an allergic reaction to it. I'm allergic to peaches and apricots - but I'm okay with The Body Shop's apricot scrub so I thought that Origins' would be okay too. Unfortunately not the case. Anyhow... I got Swept Away instead (Actually I'd wanted this in the first place but the lady at the store convinced me to buy the other - goes to …Read more

Mascara - CHANEL - Extracils Mascara

This is a nice overall mascara. It applies nicely - even, smooth, clean - and it has nice lengthening properties(which is generally what I look for most in a mascara). It smudged just a little at the corner of my eyes where my lashes touch my skin, but not too much. I prefer Lancome mascaras though - not sure if I have great reason to, though.

Masks - CLARINS - Clarins Eye Mask

This product is a light white colored cream that you put on your eye area for a while, then wipe off. It actually absorbs into your skin quite well, so you don't have that much to wipe off in the end. I have dark circles and a few lines but I don't think there was much improvment there, though this is pleasantly moisturizing - I like to use it when my eye area feels particularly dry. I …Read more

Sunscreen - CLINIQUE - Super City Block SPF 25

Feb/20/2003

This was too greasy for me. Even though I have dry/combo skin - that is not so dry in hotter months. Also it has color to it, which doesn't really show up, but I still didn't like it - I have pale/fair skin that's lighter than the color of this product. I actually have a friend who has a darker complexion, and she uses this kind of like a tinted moisturizer. It felt like it …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Pigment in Blue Brown

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/19/2003

I got a sample of this from a lovely swapper. It looked very interesting and when I dabbled a little bit on the back of my hand it gave a very striking sparkle of blue/brown. But when I tried putting it on my eyes, it just looked way to dark and in your face for me. Also becuase it is in a powder form, and not that fine, it fell off my brush onto my cheeks. I couldn't get it off without …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Star Powder Eye Shadow

Feb/19/2003

This is a beautiful sparkling powder. I bought it in a shade of deep pink (with gold shimmer). It ends up looking lightly pinkish peach with a lot of very fine shimmer/sparkle on me - I have light, almost pale, yellow toned skin. The shimmer is noticable but yet subtle and not OTT. Because the powder is very fine, it stays on quite well and doesn't fly all over your face. It's also …Read more

Pressed Powders - Estée Lauder - Lucidity Translucent Pressed Powder [DISCONTINUED]

Feb/09/2003

I used this for touching up during the day. It tends to look powdery, so you have to be careful to not overdo it. The puff that comes in the compact is like a sponge but there isn't a seperate compartment for it so the mirror gets all smudged up. Although the mirror in the compact is nice and wide.

I ended up giving this to my mother b/c the scent was too strong and bothered me …

Lipstick - Estée Lauder - Pure Color Crystal - Crystal Rose

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/09/2003

The packaging is very pretty - a gold square tube with a clear plastic bottom with a bit of color showing through. But the color in the plastic is not like the product, but is rather the color of the iridescent pink/lavender shimmer that coats the lipstick.

The lipstick itself is a natural rose/mauve/pink that goes on like a sheerish gloss. I love the color and the sheer/natural …
