Blue-Q's "Miso Pretty" line which was previously only bath & body goodies-lotions, sake bubble bath, peony spray, ect has just come out with cosmetics- 2 eye shadow palettes and a few shades of lip gloss. The two palettes are not named- described both as "Darling eye shadow quartet", "Colours chosen with Great wisdom" and also "Tiny Perfection, Flown in …Read more

Wow, I'm really surprised at all the poor reviews this got. I really love this mask!! I love being to customize it- add tomato juice for blemished/troubled skin, grapefruit juice for oily/shiny skin (the 2 versions I use the most)- plus you can customize it for dry, sensitive, & mature skins as well- just by changing the liquid ingredient in it (& of course, you can just use good …Read more

Lip Gloss - Sonia Kashuk - Lip Glossing- Sexy

SK's sexy gloss is nearly <b>INDENTICAL</b> to MAC's star nova lustresglass in color & shimmer factor. And actually sexy is a wee bit more pigmented than star nova so if you sheer sexy out some-it becomes indistinguishable on the lips. I wore both glosses on my lips and you can't tell the difference. Anyone lemming star nova- forget it!!- buy sexy instead! Save your …Read more

A fantastically generous swapper sent this to me as a extra in a swap (full size too!!) :) and I am just so surprised how well it works!! Now to preface- I am one of the *oilest* people around- my nose is always super shiny- I use mattifiers, matte foundations, loose powder on top, & blot all day long- and I'm still shiny!! :( I have combo skin tho- so it can also get dry in spots …Read more

Lip Gloss - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Soothing Lip Gloss- Mauve Luxe

May/07/2005

An impulse buy at Target (but hey- at least it's a <i>cheap</i> impulse buy- only a buck!)- Gorgeous YLBB shade!! In the tube, Mauve Luxe is a reddish dusty mauve shade (if that makes sense) w/ heavy gold shimmer. On the lips, it's a little sheerer, so it's a more sheer rose & the shimmer is fine, very subtle. Just beautiful- very natural & pretty. (My lips …Read more

Lip Treatments - Passport - LAYOVER STIMULATING LIP LUBE

Apr/10/2005

Yup, impulse buy at sephora for me too!! I have to admitt- I LOVE the scent of it- ginger & maybe a little bit lemony too. Feels nice on- smooth, not ultra moisturing or anything, but nice. Not $12 bucks nice though. I haven't seen any "plumping" effects either. And that sucks too- b/c I loved the idea of a plumping lip <i>balm</i> instead of all the plumping …Read more

Eye Shadow - Urban Decay - Precious Metals Eye Sheen -Platinum

Apr/10/2005

These are UD's newest product for spring- they are very lightweight cream shadows that go on <i>very</i> sheer. It gives more of a sheer metallic irridescent shimmer to the eyes rather than a pigmented look, but the effect is still quite pretty! Platinum, as the name suggests, ;) is a silver platinum color- basically a sheer silver irridescence on your lids (or a nice highligter …Read more

Apr/09/2005

In general, a lot of ELF stuff is very hit of miss, but for only a buck- it's worth it to take the risk of ending up w/ a "miss".

That said, this eyelash curler is DEFINITELY a HIT!! :) Really curls my lashes nicely- they really look longer too- I'm loving this curler! Been using it every day and it's really making a difference in my puny lashes. Highly …

Groovynub (as always) :) has an *excellent* description of the color in her review. This a beautiful blush!! It's like no other blush color I own! (that alone warrants the $16.50 pricetag!) I love the reddish/goldish glitter in it- don't worry, it's very fine and shows up more as shimmer on your cheeks than outright glitter. I found that it's *REALLY* pigmented though- so …Read more

Exuberant is part of the new MAC fall '03 Liza collection and unfortunately also Limited Edition too. :( I'm really quite surprised by it- when I first saw it, I didn't think I was going to like it at all, but after trying it on- it ended up being my favorite out of the whole collection! In the tube, it looks like a Highly metallic medium pinky-mauve and very frosty looking (as …Read more
