Lipstick - Stila - Lip Rouge- Smooch

You know when you have a felt-tip pen that has dried out? That's what using this product is like-- very irritating. At first the color just gushed out. It is a very quick drying non-spreadable stain so it was way too much. After two weeks in my makeup drawer it seems to have totally dried out...there are directions on the pen saying to tap the nib on a hard surface to start re-releasing …Read more

Lip Gloss - NARS Cosmetics - Lip Gloss (All Shades)

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/02/2010

NARS lip gloss in Easy Lover is a clear, translucent wash of extremely shiny true magenta -- not hot pink as it is described on the NARS website. I was seeking a hot pink, which to me, would mean kinda bright, like geranium pink. But this is a purplish magenta containing tiny pink sparkles. I already have naturally pink lips, so on me, it ends up looking almost a berry tone, just a juicier …Read more

Lip Gloss - Dior - Addict Ultra-Gloss Reflect

#576 Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss Pearl in Sari Pink is a to-die-for perfect bluish Barbie pink--the problem is it has NO STAYING POWER WHATSOEVER. Even without drinking or eating, it is pretty well gone from my lips in under an hour. It's a super-great color--but I'm going to try to find this shade in another brand.

Lip Gloss - Hourglass Cosmetics - Extreme Sheen High Shine Lip Gloss

Nov/20/2010

Hourglass Extreme Lip Gloss in Lush is a very wearable slightly opaque coral/melon color with gold shimmer. I just can't get over the great consistency of the Hourglass lip glosses---it's so pleasant, not sticky or gummy and it wears well. The Lush color is pretty muted and would be ideal for everyday and work. This would probably look best on gals with warm or yellow-toned …Read more

Hair - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Macadamia Nut Oil

5.0

Nov/08/2010

Macadamia nut oil is the best make-up remover especially for hard to remove lipsticks. Just dab some on a tissue and lipstick blots right off without tugging. It hardly has any taste or odour,and what taste it does have is plesant, and it has a pleasantly light feel to it. While a bottle of it at the health food store may seem expensive, even a small bottle is a hundred times larger than most …Read more

Concealers - Sue Devitt - Bermuda Triangle

Nov/08/2010

The best under-eye concealer I have found so far. It has some orange in so it avoids that racoon-eye pale undereye look. It is matte, which is what I want in the undereye area, I don't t want shine or shimmer to bring that area "out". Only criticism I have is that it is a bit cakey, you definitely need to have some under-eye moisturizer on, or I often mix it up on the back of my …Read more

Powder - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/08/2010

MAC Studio Fix Powder and Foundation in one. A very nice easy-to use product. Needs to be applied with a very light hand in order to avoid caking it on. Best swirled over the face with a blush-type brush. It is hard for me to find a foundation pale enough for me that doesn't also make me look dead and I have the C2 and it looks great. Sheer and natural enough that it can be used as you …Read more

Lip Gloss - NARS Cosmetics - Frisky Summer

A pretty highly pigmented grapefruit pink lip gloss, that is definitely not just for summer. It is not that sheer but provides coverage more like a lipstick would. Not a bright lip color, but not too muted either. No sparkle or glitter whatsoever, so great for daytime.

Lip Gloss - NARS Cosmetics - Lip Lacquer in Capucine

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/08/2010

Capucine is a "vintage" NARS product re-introduced this season. While in the pot it is a vivid orange gloss with gold glimmer, when it is applied it is not vivid, but a pretty coral that is not too glossy and does not have too much glitter for daylight wear. It is less glossy than the NARS lip gloss sticks. It looks great applied over pink lipsticks to give them a touch of shrimp or …Read more
