Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Mineralize Eyeshadow in Blue Flame

5.0

Sep/24/2009

This shadow is from the new Style Black collection. It is so gorgeous. It is a black mineralize shadow base that is packed with fine blue sparkles. When used dry it sheers out fairly well, with some of the blue sparkles still visible. It's really awesome when used wet. Very intense and sparkly. I find like all the mineralize e/s this has great staying power. I also got Gilt By …Read more

Eyeliner - Urban Decay - Ink for Eyes - Binge

This is the blue color that UD has put out in it's Ink for Eyes eyeliner. Overall, I was very disappointed. In the package it is a gorgeous deep, dark blue. When applied it doesn't have even close to the same pigment, even when applied in multiple layers. Despite the lack of pigment, I did find that it didn't smudge or fade. I don't think I will repurchase.

Eyeliner - Urban Decay - Ink for Eyes - Zero

Overall, I was really disappointed by this and I had really high hopes for it. While I like the applicator and the packaging, the product itself isn't up to UD's standards. I found the color wasn't intense at all. I had to put on a few layers to get a dark black. It lasted pretty much the whole day though, with minimal smudging. I don't think I will be repurchasing.

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Double Extend Beauty Tubes

Dec/15/2008

I have been dying to try this mascara since seeing it in the November Allure. I finally saw it this past weekend at Shoppers Drug Mart so I grabbed one.

The mascara itself does a good job lengthening. However, I find it a tad bit wet for my preference. It definitely stayed on (even through a Bikrams Yoga class!). I didn't have the problems getting it off that others had …

Eye Shadow - Stila - Silk Eye Shadow Wash in Kitten

May/03/2008

I actually liked this product, although I can't say it is something truly special. Like the other reviewers said, it goes on quite sheer and just leaves a hint of champagne shimmer. If you want a really sublte look then it is really great on it's own. I also tried it layering the Kitten powder e/s over top and it gave a really intense color. I used UDPP as a base and I had no …Read more

Lip Gloss - Stila - Silk Shimmer Gloss in Kitten

1.0

May/03/2008

I ordered this from Sephora with really high hopes. I ususally love everything Stila. I found this gloss to have a really thin consistency and to be kind of runny. It looked really nice for the minute that it actually stayed on! It barely lasted and I had to keep reapplying constantly (and I wasn't even eating or drinking anything!). Unfortunately I really can't recommend this …Read more

Eye Shadow - Urban Decay - Loose Pigment in Asphyxia

5.0

Feb/23/2008

I really, really like this new product from Urban Decay. The color is definitely pinker than the Asphyxia eyeshadow. It reminds me very much of MAC Pink Pearl pigment, a cool bright pink with a slight bluish tint. I like the product container, as it is definitely less messier than MAC Pigments. It comes in a screw top container with the brush attached to the lid, and it seems virtually spill …Read more

Lipstick - L'Oreal Paris - Color Riche Star Secret Aishwarya Beige

Aug/10/2006

I got this in a CP from an awesome MUAer over in Europe. This is a definite YLBB shade on me (I'm a MAC NC20), and I actually think it would suit a wide variety of skin tones. I actually prefer this over MAC Hug Me (I think the first reviewer has a comparison pic). The texture is really nice, and so is the packaging. It is in a black and gold tube, with Aishwarya's signature in gold …Read more

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Volume Shocking Mascara [DISCONTINUED]

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/16/2005

I depsarately wanted to try this and actually had a CP done while it was still only available in the UK. I would never, ever buy this stuff again! The primer end is okay. It is a basic silvery white primer. The mascara end, is another story. The mascara is soooo wet, it made all the curl come out of my lashes. The comb applicator dispenses so much product, I looked like I had three …Read more

Eye Shadow - Urban Decay - Mary Jane

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/20/2005

Of the five new e/s, so far I have only been able to get my hands on this one, and I love it!!! Mary Jane is a metallic medium grey-blue. I say grey-blue, b/c in my opinion it actually has a silver tone to it. It has the same great texture and blendability as the other UD e/s. The colour is quite vibrant, but it is definietly wearable as a lid colour. I would definitely repurchase this one …Read more
