So far so good. Purchased on the Ulta (near) half price sale for $19 which is a steal. I had no idea what to expect but knew I could return it if needed, so nothing lost. I'm looking for a new foundation. Like Lancome 24 hour (pricy $49, shade 340...bit sheer), Urban All Night (4.5), Kat Von (54N)....last two tend to run dry on my 44 yo skin. I love the coverage and how they last ALL day …Read more

Yep. Loved it :) Purchased this in Push Up after reading reviews and looking at the tube colors in the store. I returned my Lip Butter (purchased that first bc of the reviews). Should have known to stick w matte. Wears well. Lasts long. Yes, drying but that comes w thr game of matte. I was leaving all of my Lip Butter behind on my glasses, straws, etc. Prefer this. One poster suggested dabbing …Read more

Returned. Possible I'm just liking my matte lip sticks? Purchased bc of the ratings but did end up returning for the matte Lingerie style. It came off on everything. Not drying as thr mattes are which is GREAT. I just couldn't get over thr fact it was all very my cup rim. The mattes are drying, yes, but last longer. Wouldn't rebuy....

Much prefer this over the NYC gloss. Good value. As good as my KVD? No, but costs a lot less (esp w Ulta coupon). :)

I also just picked up a tube of NYX Lingerie. So far, slightly prefer the second. Seems to last longer on the lips? Both lipsticks are drying BUT like how long they last. Love I can't drink them off my lips.... I *would* buy the Matte Cream again, BUT think for $2 …

Contour - Kevyn Aucoin - The Contour Book - The Art of Sculpting and Defining Volume II

Well, I purchased Kat Von D contour book and frankly was pleased. I couldnt stop OCDing about a cream powder. $65? No way. Not when I have a brand new KVD kit.

"Just try it out and return it to calm your curiosity", I whispered to myself.

I'm more sure which one to keep now? I just may end up with both! I am not sure I 100% like all of the light powders in …

Darn it. I purchased this at an off center store hoping for $59 I would return it. Actually, I purchased it thinking I WOULD return it bc it is crazy expensive. I wanted to see what such an expensive brush would be like. Retails $82...off center price $59. I literally just purchased an IT Buffing foundation brush two weeks ago that I love. $23...

I'm keeping both! Nooo! But yes …

I tried. I tried and then I tried again. Went on sooo well and lasted all day BUT looked so orange :(. I went to Sephora and I had maybe 6 samples over a weeks time to play with. Nope. Orange. I'm so sad. I tried 4.5 , 5.0, 6.0, 5.5, 7.0 to name most of them. Crazy. How can they ALL be orange?

I'm NC35ish in Mac. Even the shades too light for me turned orange over time. It …

I love my eyes and eyeliner! The more attention to my eyes the bettet, IMHO. I am also picky when it comes to eyeliner. One of the few things I can justify spending extra $ on. Lancome has been my HG for years bc it stays on ALL day long. In addition, love heavy eye makeup.
Ulta was having a BOGO sale and I am on a makeup kick. Was a little worried bc it was cheap, but my Este Lauder black …

Ok, what can I say? This seemed like a lot of $ for an eyebrow pencil. After doing research (and being new to brows), I felt this was the best choice for me. I also was lucky to test the shades at Ulta first. I picked #5. My hair is medium darker hair w highlights. I was afraid to go too dark, fearing I would look like Groucho Marx. I'm also 44, not use to this thicker eyebrow look BUT …Read more
