I'll have to agree with the other reviewer here that its quite the Seashore Frosts from Summer of 2013. I have seen bloggers mention the repackaging & same color as well; but I'll have to disagree (slightly) I don't own SF anymore because I swapped it away, but I remember how sought after & raved it was so I tried to make it work MANY times; but it didn't for me. It …Read more

Moisturizers - Olay - Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream (NEW March 2013 Formula)

I LOVE how they have this in half size/price now at drugstores. I couldn't justify paying $30 for a OTC moisturizer, despite the rave reviews here. When I saw the 0.5 oz available for $11 at cvs I jumped on it. Tried it for 4 wks and sadly didn't live up to the hype. The claims on the box read :

-"see visible wrinkle results starting DAY 1"
-14 days …

Moisturizers - ORIGINS - Starting Over (with Mimosa)

May/17/2014

I was fortunate enough to try out a deluxe sample size of this for a little over 2 wks. I now feel confident to report that although a good moisturizer its not worth the money for what it actually is. I enjoyed the lightweight lemony-orange scent & the pale yellow cream color is calming for my eyes and nose to apply. It sinks into skin, without leaving a film/grease while still taking care of …Read more

May/10/2014

I got this after MakeupbyTiffany mentioned it in a video where she boasted colors like Nars Madly and this one to have just enough subtle color to warm up the complexion in the winter months. After Candy Coral was an epic fail (ZERO pigmentation) I hesitated with this one, but it turned out to be somewhat worthwhile. Its a matte, peachy nude blusher with a satin finish. I don't care for the …Read more

O-M-G what a versatile, genius & daily must have item! This single handed item has quickly replaced 3 of my usuals: NYX jumbo eye pencil in milk, L'oreal TM crayon in N567 & Maybelline define a brow in dark brown. Not only am I saving money & space in my mu stash but this 2 in 1 works better than all those before mentioned items did alone. I have the shade: Vanilla/Natural Taupe …Read more

I placed an online ELF order for this one item & Im so glad I did! My target only stocks up on the Studio: Warm & Golden bronzer quads (both have sparkle). The baked ones (sheen finish) single round essential ones (shimmer) so this ones the only true matte one & probably the most versatile. It has 4 shades & I used them all:

Top Left: White: set under-eye concealer …

Lipstick - Maybelline New York - Color Whisper in Coral Ambition

Apr/18/2014

I love peaches & corals all year long. Most of my collection is varying shades of this as a matter of fact; so naturally this was my first pick out of the whispers. Unfort, it wasnt what I was expecting. My lips are very lightly (barely) pigmented naturally & this goes on extremely pastel almost neon. I could deal with orange even, but this was a very childish bright shocking coral on me …Read more

Dupe for MAC cremecup or UD revolution native but certainly not my HG pinky nude. Because its neither pink nor beige (what I equate nude to be) instead its a soft lavendar shade that would look stunning on fair skin, cool undertones. It wouldn't show on pigmented lips or darker skin at all. Im an NC20-25, warm undertones & this works when my teeth are whitened. Otherwise makes them look …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - Laura Mercier - Flawless Skin Eye Serum

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/12/2014

This should be sold as a highlight /eye brightener instead of a serum. I swear this could be Benefit's high beam's grandchild! Its a muchhhh less pigmented (color wise) version ofcourse, but has the same pearly pink tone with miniscule silver specks that translate as a sheen. Anyone seeing a decrease in undereye darkness or more rested eyes is probably checking with this serum ON. Im …Read more

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Butterfly Mascara

Smells like roses!! Or is it just me? Im not sure if theres a difference between this & the "lash-out" butterfly because my package read "voluminous" and the silver tube says "lashout" which theres a separate review/product listed here for. A MUA-er described that as smell of urine bahh. But if uve ever used rosewater on ur face as a toner thats what it smells …Read more
