Oh, I so wanted to love this powder. I love the idea of dusting a powder on my face and having everything kind of blur. Unfortunately, this did nothing for me. It is beautiful and I loved the packaging and it took me awhile to finally pass it along to my niece who wanted it so bad. Maybe I'm too fair? Not sure. But this didn't work and it sadly turned me off from all other …Read more

I've already gone thru a couple of these eyeliners. I use strictly for tightlining. It is a dupe for the Hourglass 1.5mm gel liner. It works exactly the same. This liner stays on all day for me. Because the tip is to tiny, I can wiggle it into my upper lashline and it really thickens the line. My HG tightline is the Marc Jacobs Highliner, but when I don't have $25 to spend -- I …Read more

I've found my favorite highlighter! I do tend to prefer a cream highlighter -- and Becca Moonstone would be that --- but after much research I purchase this little gem. First of all, this will last me FOREVER. There is so much product -- I had no problem with the price tag because I knew it would be a worthy investment. The packaging is a little bulky, but so sturdy and lux. This …Read more

This bronzer is beautiful, subtle, light and very pretty. I got it in the darker color, Bronzer, for my fair (NC20ish) complexion. I use RT blush brush to put this on my face and it delivers a nice bronze warmth to my skin. It's not shimmery -- it's not matte -- it's like a satin or a sheen. It smells like summer in a pan and I want to soak up the scent. Unfortunately, the …Read more

I purchased this is Pink Honey. I'm always on the lookout for a nude pink lip and this one fit the bill. It is probably the perfect shade and opacity for me (I prefer sheer). My only quip is that I don't like the ultra skinny tube. I guess it has pros and cons, but I prefer a shorter, chubbier, normal-size lippy vs a long, skinny one. That's it tho. The only con for me. It …Read more

This is a beautiful crease shade. It is matte and looks amazing all over the lid, into the crease and smudged into the lower lashline. It makes my blue/gray eyes pop. It's kind of a mauvy-brown that appears cooler on my skin. I love this shadow -- it will last me forever!

I am a HUGE Teddy fan. It has been the eyeliner that I've hunted down dupes and still come back to Teddy. Then I tried Costa Riche. This is my ultimate, most favorite, beautiful brown eyeliner ever. I have blue/gray eyes and have a fair complexion. This medium dark brown with red undertones and no shimmer -- makes my eyes pop like crazy. Teddy is more bronze with a shimmer and is still …Read more

Whoa. My new favorite nude pink lip gloss. Not too keen on the smell and the price is a little steep, but this color is so beautiful and natural. Not too strongly pink, but definitely not nude. It just gives my lips something special and the formula lasts and feels amazing on my lips. I can compare it to NYX Butter Gloss in Creme Brulee, which smells absolutely delicious, but doesn't …Read more

May/06/2016

Bought this due to super high ratings from youtube. The only thing I like about this mascara is that it is very black. Not as black as Perversion from UD, but it's pretty black. I would often use this after I put my mascara on and just touch up the color a bit. But this formula stinks for me. It makes my lashes super clumpy and I didn't like it at all. I rarely will throw a …Read more

May/05/2016

I got a sample of this mascara and fell in love with the wand! The bristles are dense and give my lashes a soft, fluttery look (not false lashes look tho). The formula didn't wow me at all -- it wasn't very dark. I'm not sure if it is because I had a sample or if this is the true formula. I'm willing to give the full size a shot, if I ever feel like it, just to see if the …Read more
