Mascara - Smashbox - Lash DNA [DISCONTINUED]

4.0

Oct/02/2009

I constantly try new mascaras, because I won't use them more than 1 month after opening.This week it was Smashbox's turn for their Lash DNA. The brush is a little squatter than what I am used to (especially on the likes of Dior Show!) bu fits the lash line well. The first coat looked meh but when I added the second coat, it made quite a difference in length! Not volume though. 2nd day …Read more

Palettes - Hourglass Cosmetics - Island Color Link Palette

Apr/03/2009

First off, I bought this at 20% off, I would not spend $75 on it. The e/s and blush are great quality but I don't htink they are anywhere worth the ticket price. I went to use it today ( Ihave use dit maybe 10x) and hit pan on one eye shadow already- so crazy-are they really that tiny individual colors? - and the palette itself is falling apart! It's magnetic as part of their system …Read more

Lip Gloss - CHANEL - Glossimer - Unity

5.0

Mar/20/2009

This is only the 2nd Glossimer that I have gotten (the 1st being Spark) and I LOOOVE it!! The color is an unusual bronzy rose (similar to Laura Merciers' Ambre Rose but not quite as dark) which is perfect for my NC30-35 olive complexion. The formula is amazing! It's a little thicker than some brands but not sticky at all!

Mascara - NYX Professional Makeup - Doll Eye - Volume

I have been using this for 3 days. Day 1, I used like 4 coats to see any good results. I did not notice any volumizing just length. Day 2 and 3 I put it on over Shiseido Primer and it definitely does help, I only used 3 coats and my Shu Curler. I still think it gives more length than volume tho but for the price it's pretty darm good. I still prefer my Dior Show though

I recently got this quad and just started using it. Today is the 2nd time and I am in love with the way my eyes came out!! These are not boring beiges and the formula is silky and well-pigmented. It's my favorite palette as of right now!

Foundations - Giorgio Armani - Face Fabric Second Skin Nude Makeup

I recently got #2 in a swap and love it. It's really light coverage-wise but manages to even out my skin tone and make the skin look polished. I don't even think you would need a primer with this. I'm also going to get #3 to have for when I am tanned

Lips - Stila - Stila Cherry Crush

1.0

Jan/29/2008

Loved the concept of the lip stain in a click pen. I didn;t think it made sense to use it as a blush especially after seeing the teeny brush attached in real life.
Love the smell, like cherry cough drops, and it does give the look of just eaten cherries or a popsicle to the lips but the color disappears almost instantaneously.
Overall? A waste of $

Bronzers - Tarte Cosmetics - Sunburst Beaded Bronzing Lotion

4.0

This is a different type of tinted moisturizer with little beads of colors that burst when you rub them on. I think it makes for a very natural bronzing effect but you do have to be careful and not use too much product or it becomes dark and streaky. I use a wedge sponge after to smooth it out in case of streaks....

May/22/2007

My first foray into NYX lip glosses and I am in LOVE!!! First of all the price is so cheap but the product and packaging are much better than the price suggests! The formula is good, not sticky at all with a good color payoff and it lasts pretty well. Chestnut is more peachythan brown and looks great on my skintone. I'm a convert- want MORE! My only negative is the tilted wand which I really …Read more
