Lipstick - Lipstick Queen - Saint Lipstick - Pink

The color is really nice for everyday wear. Like others have said, this is not very long lasting and I would not wear it for a full face or glam look. It lasts about an hour on me and fades to a light stain. It's super moisturizing without being thick or sticky. Application is a breeze and you don't even need a mirror to apply this color. It goes on smooth. The price tag is very high …Read more

This mascara is ok. It's great for every day or a more natural look. I do get occasional flakes throughout the day and it ended up transferring a tiny bit below my eye. I noticed this towards the end of the day so it could have also been due to my under eye concealer. It takes me some effort to apply this mascara. It does not go on as smoothly as I prefer. I really have to work get nice …Read more

I have the shade American Woman. It's not a casual color for me, but not too bold. It works with a regular face of makeup for the office or out on the town. This is the best liquid lipstick I have tried. It rubs off some, but most of the color stays on your lips. I found it to be a bit drying, but matte products do this to me. It is not uncomfortable though. It's very light and smooth …Read more

This mascara flakes too much for me. It doesn't smudge, but after a few hours sitting at my desk job I had small black flakes under my eyes. I'm not hugely fond of the formula but I don't hate it either. It goes on black, but it takes 3 rounds of application before I get the effect I want. It doesn't do the best as tight lining (which is what I really want) and it clumps my …Read more

Lips - CLARINS - Water Lip Stain

I got the Violet color and honestly, I'm super unhappy with the promise of long-lasting color and getting crappy results. It faded in patches across my lips. Within minutes of applying, I had a dark ring around the inside of my lips where it had settled. After about an hour, it had faded some and left darker spots where it clung to the skin and lines on my lips. My lips weren't dry …Read more

I bought this to replace a volumizing mousse that worked wonders but was making my scalp itchy and flaky. I am pleasantly surprised by this. It very creamy and slippery, but gives me nice volume for several days without the dry or greasy/sticky feeling. I have a lot of hair, but it's very fine. It is a bit harder to rinse off your hands but comes off easily if you use soap. It has a strong …Read more

Palettes - Zoeva - En Taupe Palette

May/02/2018

I really wanted to love this palette. The colors are beautiful and right up my alley. However, I didn't like the formula. I bought my palette from the Zoeva website and the mattes were very stiff and dry. They didn't apply very easily and I felt like the pigmentation could be a lot better. The shimmer shades were pretty and I did enjoy those, but the mattes completely threw me off and I …Read more

I was not a fan of this formula or color. It felt drying and emphasized every line on my lips. I know this a popular shade that seems to be a chameleon for everyone. For me, it turned out a not so nice brown. I like the neutral colors and can't get away with bold shades, but this just did not work for me. I don't rock the corals or most pinks so that is why I was drawn to this shade. I …Read more

Blush - CLINIQUE - Chubby Stick Moisturizing Cheek Colour Balm - Amp'd Up Apple

May/02/2018

I find this Chubby Stick just "okay." It's not awful, but not amazing. The pigmentation is good. It's easy to blend. The packaging makes it convenient for travel, too. I was hoping it would have some bit of sheen to it, but it's completely matte. It doesn't stay on through an 8-hour workday like some other cream blushes I've tried. I have a desk job so it's …Read more

Eye Shadow - Smashbox - Cover Shot Eye Palette - Petal Metal

These shadows are very pretty. They all lean towards a pinky bronze color. I like that they give you more product for your base colors. The consistency is smooth and they are definitely more metallic, but not glittery. They blend like a dream, too. The two base colors at the top have a shift to them like a duochrome finish. With a primer, these stayed put for hours without much fading. I …Read more
