Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Matte Lipstick - Lady Danger

Back when the orange lipstick trend first became popular (8 years ago?), I became obsessed with finding the perfect 40's technicolor orange red lipstick: I tried MAC's Morange, Revlon's Siren, and UD's Bang - all of which are shockingly neon and were terribly unflattering on my ruddy, cool-toned, pale skin. Since then I assumed I couldn't pull off orange reds and have …Read more

Foundations - L'Oreal Paris - Infallible 24H Stay Fresh Foundation

5.0

A lot of the negative reviews for this foundation are by first-time reviewers (make of that what you will, but I really wish MUA would do something about these trolls). This is, by far, the best drugstore foundation I've ever used! I also own higher ends foundations (KVD Lock-IT, Dermacol, and Estee's Double Wear), but since trying this one I haven't touched any of them. This one …Read more

Moisturizers - Josie Maran Cosmetics - Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47 with Sunboost ATB

I'm shocked this isn't rated higher! I've tried innumerable sunscreens over the years and I can say with confidence that this is - by far - the best everyday facial SPF I've ever used. The formula is like nothing else on the market, it's the only sunscreen I've used that improves the quality of my skin (it's that moisturizing Argan Oil). I can use it as an eye …Read more

The worst liquid lipstick I've tried. I bought Fighter because it seemed like a unique color (despite the popularity of rust/pumpkin shades on social media, it's still difficult to find them in drugstores). I liked the applicator sponge, but that's where it ends. The color looks like diarrhea. This smudges all around my lip line and came off in chunks/flakes on my drinking glass …Read more

I got a sample of this from Sephora. My interest was entirely based on the packaging and the name. I wore this once to a party and that was enough to make me never want to wear it again. I had people telling me they "smell cat litter box" and others asking where the cat was - some were actively LOOKING for said cat - because it smelled so much like cat piss. Spoiler alert: there was no …Read more

I'm baffled by the stellar reviews and I have to wonder if I got a bad batch, despite purchasing directly from Ulta. I have to dip the brush back into the bottle with every brush stroke. The formula gets gloopy. The brush leaves texture marks on the nail. It requires two coats, and it also chips within 2 days. Terrible. I have 5+ year old polishes that perform better than this one!

Have you ever seen photos of Dita Von Teese when she has noticeable highlighter on? It's a pale, snow-white-type-of-glow? That's what I've been after and that's why I bought this product. Pure white highlighters are actually tricky to find. Anyway, when I look straight into the mirror after applying this in my bathroom (overhead lighting), the "glow" is undetectable …Read more

A Sephora employee recommended this to me when I asked for a sample of the palest foundation they have. I was shocked she didn't steer me towards KVD (I know for a fact it's paler), but decided to give this one a shot. The palest shade is indeed, quite pale. Not as pale as KVD 41, but possibly as pale as KVD 42. I love the full coverage of this foundation, and it does last a long time …Read more

I was really excited to buy a bottle of camellia oil on my trip to Japan, simply because I'd heard so much about it and Japanese women appear to have such beautiful hair. I have to admit , I was a bit disappointed. I tested a couple camellia oils in a store in Tokyo, one of them smelled divine but I ended up going with this brand because it was on all the must-have lists. To my …Read more

Lipstick - wet n wild - Megalast Lip Color - Stoplight Red

This looks stunning in the bullet, like a hot tomato red. Sadly though it applies more like a hot strawberry color. Pigmentation is excellent, but this is not a true red on me. This lipstick looks gorgeous on everyone else (according to google images), but on me it has hot magenta undertones - a hallmark of cheaply made reds. I hate pink undertones in red lipstick so this is a no-go for me. I do …Read more
