Lip Gloss - Buxom - Full-On Plumping Lip Polish - Katie

Looks pretty in the tube, but the pale pink with shimmer doesn't really show on my lips as anything more than a thin pink sheen. There is a tingly sensation when you first put it on, but no lip plumping for me. I would not repurchase.

Palettes - Laura Mercier - Artist's Palette (holiday 2013)

Like the review below I was also missing an eye shadow color, Vanilla Nuts in my case. I had instead two of Primrose. This Fall I have been palette obsessed and my first look at this year's Artist palette I was going to pass as the tester was dry and the pigmentation seemed to be lacking. I looked again at another store later on when they were sold out online and this time the tester …Read more

I would describe this as a pale champagne gold foil. It's opaque in one coat, but I find best results with two. This polish is packed with shimmer/microglitter, but dries to a demi matte finish, metallic yes, but not glossy. This shade looks lovely on my fair skin, but would work well with a lot of other skintones as well. I personally find metallic gold nail polish hard to pull off, but …Read more

Eyeliner - Eyeko - Skinny Liquid Eyeliner - Black

Hands down the best liquid liner I've ever used. There is no learning curve with this liquid liner pen, I got a perfect result the first time I used it. I've tried quite a few liquid "felt-tip" liners with mixed results - this one releases the right amount of product and dries fairly quickly. I have oily lids, and while this is not a waterproof product, it is really …Read more

Polishes - CHANEL - Le Vernis LE-- Graphite

Looks gorgeous in the bottle and just as lovely applied. This is my foolproof go to nail polish. It's the easiest to apply and the formulation masks any ridges or bumps my nails may have. The color is a charcoal silver with multifaceted micro glitter that flashes silver, gold, and even a touch of green to my eye. It's a showy and beautiful polish, but not over the top at all. This is …Read more

Looks prettier in the bottle than on my nails. I was expecting to see the micro glitter, but it looks more frosty/shimmery applied. The color is a warm golden green with a hint of bronze and teal. Doesn't really flatter my pale cool skintone I must admit. It does apply easily, thin, but not too sheer.

Makeup Brushes - Tokidoki - Pittura brush set

5.0

Jul/06/2012

This is a great synthetic brush set for eyes with shadow, crease, and liner brushes. They are a bit weighty, but feel well made despite the cutesy style - so far no shedding of bristles. Super soft, and great for those pigmented products where you need a light touch. The one drawback I can see with these is storing them, as they are long and have a character on the end of each brush as well. Very …Read more

Great every day blush of fair skin with cool or neutral undertones. Just the right amount of color and luminous bronzer, esp for Summer. I wouldn't recommend this one if you are looking for a dramatic look, but for an subtle, just pretty blush - check it out. I've only applied this with the matching synthetic brush and I love the results. Purchased at Sephora for $13 Canadian.

A sheer highlighting powder that works well on my pale skin. I would not recommend this for a darker skin tone. This looks gorgeous applied with a light hand and a synthetic brush - gives a soft shimmering glow. If you apply too heavy it looks glittery, so bear in mind application is important with this one. Purchased at Sephora for $13 Canadian.

This is a great synthetic angled blush brush. It's a bit weightly, but feels well made despite the cutesy style - so far no shedding of bristles. Super soft, and great for those pigmented products where you need a light touch - this applies and blends bronzer in particular beautifully. I got mine on sale at Sephora for $15 Canadian. Would rec this brush to anyone!
