Palettes - Unlisted Brand - Unii Cosmetics Palette

Oct/16/2013

I haven't used the old Unii palette that people say is superior, but think the current ones (purchased October 2013) are great. They are smaller than I thought - slightly larger than the size of my hand and significantly smaller than the original Z Palette, making this a great option for travel. I like my Zs for storing product but not for travel. Unii has a very secure closure and is …Read more

Bronzers - COVERGIRL - CG Bronzer in Golden Tan

Jan/24/2011

Wow - I do the exact same thing as reviewer dbmiller!! I also have the Nars laguna bronzer and orgasm blush (but not the duo) and I like them but am always looking for less expensive dupes. Like dmiller, I find myself layering this bronzer over the CG Rose Silk blush or Plumberry Glow (a brighter pink). The bronzer is pretty light but it adds a glowy sheen and the blushes are just perfection. …Read more

Blush - COVERGIRL - Cheekers Blush

5.0

Jan/24/2011

The packaging is pretty unsophisticated, but these are GREAT blushes, especially for the price. Yes, there's a strong powdery smell, but it doesn't bother me because I love these inexpensive, long-lasting blushes that come in a great range of colors. One compact will last you a surprisingly long time. One of my favorite colors is the Rose Silk everyone raves about and compares to …Read more

Blush - COVERGIRL - Cheekers Blendable Powder Blush - Rose Silk

This color is awesome. I'm Asian with golden/olive skin - this looks really good and is glowy. I have Nars Orgasm as well, and it's pretty, but given the price difference and the fact that the CG blush lasts longer, this product beats out Nars for me. If you're the same color range as I am (MAC NC40), the CG bronzers in the same packaging as the blush act as very pretty …Read more

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Orgasm Blush

3.0

I love the matte finish of Nars packaging. I wanted to love this blush, given the hype, but it's just ok on my skin tone (olive). It disappears a bit, I like something with more pigment, and it doesn't last long on me. I do like the glowiness of it, thanks to the gold shimmer spiked into this peachy blush. Cover Girl Rose Silk is a good dupe to this.

Lash Treatments - Unlisted Brand - LiLash Purified Eyelash Serum

Jan/24/2011

Like many other reviewers I tried lash extensions a couple times and when I removed them my lashes were weak (fell out easily), short, and sparse. I've tried Tarte's lash serum and didn't find dramatic results but it did make my lashes stronger and fill-in - though that may have happened naturally with time as well. Sfter watching youtube reviews I decided to order Li Lash on …Read more

Powder - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation

I've been using this on and off for years and it lasts forever because it's so highly pigmented. It's a dependable go-to in that it always gives quick coverage when you're in a rush! I like the soft matte finish it gives my normal skin and it really disappears into it, so I must have the right color for me. Not too orange as other reviewers commented. Other reviews mention …Read more

Lip Gloss - Vincent Longo - Lip Gloss in Fioresh

I like this lipgloss. It's non-sticky but doesn't last as long as I'd like it to. The color is creamy pink (perfection!) but I find the texture a bit too thin, if that makes sense, and I reapply like crazy.

Concealers - L'Oreal Paris - True Match Super-Blendable Concealer

Nov/14/2010

I'm on my 2nd tube of this stuff and really like it. I use it for medium-bad under-eye circles, a small pitted dark scar on my cheek, and redness around the nose. I have tanned, olive, Asian skin - totally normal, not acne prone (saw some reviewers had problems with breakouts - not me) - and use WARM LIGHT/MEDIUM W4-5. It seems way lighter than I should be using, but it's good. The …Read more

Mascara - Dior - Diorshow Extase Flash Plumping Mascara

5.0

Nov/13/2010

Amazing volume. I've tried Iconic, loved it, but this one is even better! Iconic gives more definition and a natural look. Extase gives you fat, blacker-than-black lashes. Not super volumizing, but I found since the bumpy brush picks up even the shortest lashes, my fringe looks thicker. Stays on all day, no suggestion of smear or shadow under the eyes, but removes easily. Paired with …Read more
