This is a great pink-nude gloss that is easy to layer over other colors. The violent vanilla-cupcake smell makes me feel ancient and full of self-loathing, but it's not a bad trade-off for a well-priced product. The texture is smooth without being too tacky, but at the cost of coming off a bit too easily. Overall, though, for a gloss it performs well and is well-pigmented. Pros: Color …Read more

Lips - NYX Professional Makeup - Soft Matte Lip Cream (All)

I was pleasantly surprised by this product. I'm not a fan of the matte lip fad, but wanted something long-lasting. This is a great happy medium--it's a touch matte, only a little drying, and lasts a long time. I can't say I love that all NYX stuff smells like cupcakes, but I guess it's a small trade-off for well-priced, quality products. I have this in Cannes, which is a nice …Read more

Eye Shadow - rms beauty - Cream Eye Shadow (All Shades)

Feb/10/2018

Edit: I read a few other reviews, which I found kind of funny. Reviewers note that those giving this product poor reviews don't understand what this product is or how to use it. Um, it's stuff to make color on one's eyelids, right? I wasn't expecting magic.

After absolutely loving the Living Luminizer, I tried the eyeshadow. It's...not good. It is difficult …

This is one of my all-time favorites--the stuff that I'll keep buying (not that I need to that often--a pot lasts about a year). This gives my very fair skin a warm glow that doesn't look oily or frosty or sparkly. I use it along the tops of my cheekbones and brow bone, and sometimes along the bridge of my nose. Though the product can get a bit hard in cold weather, it warms up pretty …Read more

Tinted Moisturizer - bareMinerals - COMPLEXION RESCUE Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream

Feb/10/2018

This product gets the job done, but doesn't exceed expectations. I only wear tinted moisturizer or BB creams, so am usually not after very heavy coverage, but I do find that if I'm dealing with some redness, etc. I need to wear two coats. It is adequately moisturizing without clogging pores or feeling heavy, and isn't greasy (the finish is light and slightly dewy). If you're a …Read more

Mascara - bareMinerals - Lash Domination Volumizing Mascara

Feb/10/2018

I'm a big fan of little mascara brushes--the small, rigid plastic wands are great for hooded lids (the big, fat brushes get mascara all over my eyelids). This product comes in a rich, dark color, and the brush allows for build-able, precise application. The price is good, too. I do wish that the mascara itself was a bit better--it's about average in terms of longevity and feel …Read more

Mascara - Eyeko - Skinny Brush Mascara (Long &Tall)

Feb/10/2018

I was drawn to this product by the inky-black color and interesting packaging. I find it hard to find a black mascara that maintains a very dark, wet black (instead of clumpy gray-tinged) with a flexible feel. The product itself is a great color and isn't too drying, but I found that the brunch caused a harsh, spiky look-my lashes looked long, but for the sacrifice of volume. The tube is …Read more

BB Cream - Tarte Cosmetics - BB Tinted Treatment Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30

Feb/10/2018

This was my go-to product as an all-in-one primer, sunscreen, and light coverage base. It is lightweight with a lovely, feathery-smooth finish. If using once daily as a tinted moisturizer, it lasts 9 months to a year (it's concentrated, so a little goes a long way). Unfortunately, it isn't sold in the country where I live--this is the main reason I'm not using it. It's a bit …Read more
