Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Grand Entrance [DISCONTINUED]

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/13/2008

Grand Entrance is a light champagne shade. I love the color, but it was much frostier than I expected. Some may use this as a highlight, but I don't care for frosty highlighters on myself. I have very fair skin, cooler undertones, grey-blue eyes, brown hair. As I am fair, I find this to be a similar shade to my skintone, which makes it wearable for me. I like to wear this as a wash on …Read more

Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Satin Blush - Apple Red

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/26/2008

Apple Red is a pretty true red in the pan, but with some pink that shows up more on my brush and on my skin. This is a pro blush (but fairly easy to obtain) and quite pigmented. The finish is Satin, meaning this is not shimmery, no shimmer visible on the face, but not as flat as a matte.
I'm sure Apple Red is lovely on deep skintones. Lighter skintones should not overlook this. I …

Lip Gloss - COVERGIRL - Wetslicks Amazemint - Sillylily

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/22/2008

I had read some rave reviews about these Amazemint glosses and picked one up when on sale. I chose Sillylily because I knew it would be a wearable, my-lips-but-better, daytime color (even though the red one was very tempting). At first I thought this was nothing special, especially as it goes on sheer, but I kept wearing it and have been right about this being a good color for me. Sillylily (I …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Femme-Fi from Neo Sci-Fi Collection [DISCONTINUED]

5.0

Oct/22/2008

When I received this, at first I was afraid I had bought another shimmery, light highlight. (All I could remember was that I had seen a photo of someone wearing this and immediately decided I wanted it.) Once I started wearing Femme-Fi, I fell in love. I consider it to be a cream color, but I suppose it is an off-white or pale champagne. This works very well as a highlight (not chalky, not …Read more

Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Blooming [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/05/2008

Blooming is described by MAC as "frosty deep dirty peach" and I would never purchase based off of that description. However, swatch pictures tempted me and the high reviews settled it. On my fair, cooler-toned skin, Blooming is a natural pink and in the pan, I see a bit of mauve in it. This is my first MAC frost and it does not look frosty to me at all (fortunately). I do wish this …Read more

Makeup Brushes - MAC Cosmetics - 188 Small Duo Fibre Face brush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/05/2008

I am very fair and used to avoid blush because I always got "clown cheeks." For a while, I was even using a pink highlighter as my "blush." I absolutely needed a brush of this type. Now, I can use this for just about any type of blush. I sweep normally across a medium or lighter pigmented blush and tap lightly on a highly pigmented or bright blush. I use this for both …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Viva Glam II

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/05/2008

I am very fair, cooler-toned, and have pigmented lips for my complexion. This color falls flat on me. I wear a lot of cooler-toned lipstick so I don't think this is too cool-toned. I think this is a tad light for me and needs more pink. I think this looks like natural lips for someone with a pale complexion (like me) and lightly pigmented lips, but if my natural lip color was like this I …Read more

Lipstick - NYC New York Color - 309B Sheer Red

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/05/2008

I have been getting into sheer reds lately and kept reading recommendations for N.Y.C. Sheer Red on the boards. Overall with this brand, the quality is sometimes "what-you-pay-for", but very reasonable for the prices. Still, I tend to overlook it unless there are recommendations. I wasn't impressed at first as Sheer Red seemed darker and more pigmented than I was expecting and …Read more

Lipstick - REVLON - Shiny Sheers in Sheer Mauvy Star

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/01/2008

I am very fair, cooler-toned, and like subtle looks so a sheer mauve gloss-lipstick looked like a great choice for a my-lips-but-better look. However, (at least for my skintone) I have pigmented lips and this did not show up at all. I was expecting at least a tiny bit of color but this is invisible. Even on my hand or wrist, this is very sheer. This shade is probably best suited for those …Read more

Lipstick - COVERGIRL - Continuous Color in Classic Red-new formula

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/07/2008

"Classic Red" is no red on my lips, but quite pink. In the tube, this appears to be a medium-deep blue-based red, but on my lips this is a deep, bright pink. No red whatsoever. This was a clearance bin find, so it's no biggie. The shade looks ok on me, but I don't see me wearing it that often. I know many reds can turn pink-ish, but I find it pretty odd that a shade called …Read more
