Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Matte Lipstick - Velvet Teddy

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/22/2014

I tried oh so very hard to make this lipstick work after the whole Kylie Jenner lip insanity - serves me right for jumping on that bandwagon. I could not make this lipstick look in any way flattering on me - it appeared so ashy and gray on my lips despite trying to use different lip liners. The formula is fine, as Mac matte formulas usually are, however I could not make the color work for my NC25 …Read more

Liquid - CHANEL - Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15

3.0

Dec/01/2013

I held off on trying this foundation for the longest time because I felt that it would be similar to extremely light coverage foundations like YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat - beautiful on the skin, but I prefer a heavier coverage personally. Unfortunately none of the shades matched my pale neutral toned skin, but I got a sample of B20 just the same which was too peachy but I figured I could blend it …Read more

Mascara - Yves Saint Laurent - Babydoll Mascara

Dec/01/2013

This is a great "safe" mascara for those who like a more natural look and who want definition more than dramatic length or volume. Perfect for people who slap on their makeup in a hurry and don't have time to worry about their mascara clumping or getting all over their eyelid. That being said it but won't satisfy those who really want the oomph a more volumizing mascara will …Read more

Mascara - CHANEL - Le Volume De Chanel Mascara

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/01/2013

If you love super dramatic albeit slightly clumpy mascara (e.g. Lancome Hypnose Drama), then this is the mascara for you. What I want from my mascara is thickness, length and lift without sacrificing definition. I really liked the thickness and length that Le Volume De Chanel gave me, however the formula was too wet for my liking leaving me with tarantula legs instead of lashes. Combing out my …Read more

So I first heard about this mascara from Emily (Beauty Broadcast). I think it's pretty safe to say that I've tried my fair share of mascaras both high end and drugstore (Armani Eyes to Kill, DiorShow, Dior Iconic Overcurl, YSL Baby Doll, YSL Effet Faux Cils, CG Lash Blast, L'Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black, Maybelline One by One, MAC Haute & Naughty, Lancome Definicils, Lancome …Read more

Pros:
- Excellent coverage
- Excellent lasting power
- Satin finish (not too dewy and not too matte)

Cons:
- A little cakey and sits a bit on the skin - especially on drier areas
- Broke me out after one day of use

Summary: Basically if you like heavy coverage, aren't sensitive, and don't need your foundation to melt completely into …

Cons:

Eye Shadow - wet n wild - Color Icon Eyeshadow 10 Pan Palette - Comfort Zone

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/11/2013

After months of not being able to find the much hyped "comfort zone" palette, I finally found it in stock at my local Superstore. I can see why this palette is a hit for many - not many drugstore eye shadows have pigmentation that rivals that of higher end brands like these do, and only for $5!

Pros:
- The majority of the shadows are intensely pigmented
- Amazing …

Lipstick - bareMinerals - Marvelous Moxie Lipstick- Speak Your Mind

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/09/2013

Speak Your Mind is probably the closest thing, to me, to being the perfect lipstick, both formula and color-wise. The formula is pigmented, moisturizing but not greasy, smooth, and doesn't settle in lip lines. The color is a nude pink that isn't too beige or too cool-toned. It's the type of color I don't have to think about before putting on - it goes with any sort of eye …Read more
