Blush - BECCA - Mineral Blush

5.0

Jul/12/2015

The lasting power of this blush is impressive. I have it in "Wild Honey" and I was afraid it would look too bronze on my skin, but it's very natural looking. I used a light hand to apply it this morning, over Koh Gen Do foundation set with Meteorites. About 6 hours later I went to a birthday party and spend 2.5 hours sweating in 96 degree heat & humidity. Came home and …Read more

Mascara - Too Faced - Better Than Sex Mascara

This mascara comes in a pretty sleek although quite heavy container. It looks pretty nice initially. I could tell my lashes looked fuller. However it couldn't make it through the day in an air-conditioned office without smudging and flaking under my eyes terribly.

Lipstick - ColourPop - Lippie Stix - All Colors

I bought a ColourPop Lippie Stix in Westie. I found that it applies very roughly and clings to my lip lines, making my lips look dry. The color was uneven and barely lasted two hours.

Eye Shadow - ColourPop - Eyeshadows (All Shades)

May/20/2015

I have this in three shades: Cop a Feel (matte, unpigmented, wish I could return it), Fantasy (have not tried except on my arm as it is not eye safe but I adore the color and it's very pigmented) and Bubbly (probably my new favorite eye shadow ever). As I mentioned, Cop a Feel is a matte color that has almost no pigment and applies very patch-ily. Bubbly is very pigmented with minimal …Read more

Liquid - GUERLAIN - Meteorites BABY GLOW Light-Revealing Sheer Makeup SPF 25

4.0

Apr/30/2015

I normally use Tenue de Perfection but since my skin has been so much better I wanted something sheerer but more coverage than a BB cream and bought this. I love that it has a pump attached but I do not like that you can't see how much is left. I've also found that if you lay it down the pump then stutters a lot when you try to use it. Another big con is that it has the typical …Read more

Concealers - NARS Cosmetics - Radiant Creamy Concealer

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/21/2015

Packaging- general Nars mostly-black scheme, the type of rubberized material that seems to attract dirt :(

Color- I am NC15 and bought this in Custard and it matches perfectly.

Wear- I put this on a spot of hyperpigmentation at noon. It did not cover 100%, but I have yet to find anything that does, even supposed tattoo concealers. At this point I was fine with the …

Palettes - Laura Mercier - Eye Art Artist's Palette

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/20/2015

I bought the 2015 Sephora version that is slightly different from the original. The biggest difference I see is in packaging and this packaging feels and looks much cheaper in my opinion.

All of the colors are so pretty and contrary to some unfortunate buyers' experiences, I have no duplicate colors, all are clearly different shades. Some wear sheerer than others, but I can make …

Makeup Brushes - GUERLAIN - Meteorites Brush

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/20/2015

I bought this brush after just liking but not loving my meteorites. I do not think this applies the product any differently than any other brush I tried, however I have never once had any of the balls get stuck in this brush, so that's a plus to me. The pouch it comes with is nice for tossing in your purse but it has no actual closure on it so it's not super great for travel (not that …Read more

Crème - Unlisted Brand - IIID Foundation HAC Pac

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/02/2015

EDIT 5/20/2015: I decided to give this product a real try and ordered highlighter in Linen, Contour in Stone, and blushes in Dahlia and Ruby. I therefore owned every single color of every "type" of pan except for highlight in Wheat. So I basically ordered 2 full palettes from Cara, plus one extra pan (9 pans, 4 per palette, 2 palettes).

I have now returned almost every …

Palettes - Urban Decay - Naked On The Run

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/16/2015

I am really not impressed by this palette. Really, when I pull out my foundation (assuming I take the whole bottle and don't decant some), blush, an eyeshadow single or two, a lip gloss or two, mascara, and the 3 brush I'd need for my everyday look, it's just about the same amount of space as Naked on the Run, but it's including my foundation, including brushes, and its …Read more
