Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Burnin'

5.0

Apr/13/2009

I got this in a swap and I swapped for the color only because I wanted to try MAC lipsticks just in any color. I am a PPP and when I looked at it I was thinking I could not pull it off, but for my surprise it looks really good, especially blotted and applied with finger. It does not look too goth on me just because there is no brown in this. It is really a dark berry shade and when you blot it …Read more

It is a very cool light lilac shade, yes kind of like a pink hyacinth. I tried to compare and wore it together with a shade called Girlfriend Michelle and found out that girlfriend michelle is slightly warmer light pink with golden shimmer. Very nice color.

It really is not a warm color at all. It looks greyish in the jar and looks like uncolored shimmer in the lids. It is not really flattering or really unflattering but it makes me look made up. I wanted to give it some color so I scrabed my almost finished Chanel Venus shadow in the jar and mixed, Now it is a nicer nude color. But I would not buy it again. It does not give an especially clean look …Read more

Yet I am sure itis great quality I did not quite like the color on me. It was too warm and maybe even too orangey to look natural on me, dont get me wrong I have used way more other prodycts that looked worse on me but as this looked like makeup it was not the big hit on me. My colouring is NW 20. However I do not agree that this looks wrong because the color is too strong or deep, no way, this …Read more

Eye Shadow - NYX Professional Makeup - Single Eye Shadow - Skin

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/18/2009

I bought several NYX eyeshadows while back and most of them were light close to my skintone, you see, I am often drawn to nude looks as I have gotten older I am too tired on the morning to play with color. It is surprisingly difficult to find a great eye brightening colors that arent too frosty or do not have the wrong undertone. Some colors just look plain chalky being so matte or too light …Read more

It is really seldom that I can wear purples. There are only few ones that I have succesfully worn without looking like I got punched in the eye. Thsi is one of them and it is quite similar to discontinued Chanel "neon" Irreelle Ombre Eye shadow. However, the unevitable, getting old happened to me too, and I now cant seem to get this work, it might be my state of mind that stopping me …Read more

Highlighters - Bobbi Brown - Brownie Shimmerbrick Shimmer Brick Compact

Feb/16/2009

I cant think of any other nicer bronzer for me than this one. If youre familiar with Nars Multiple in malibu, this gives you the same color bronzing effect, it is not peachy or colorally or yellowy at all. It is shimmery of course and much more pigmented than you would expect especially if you have had other Shimmerbricks that are more sheer. I must admit I do not use this everyday but I cannot …Read more

Blush - SHISEIDO - Accentuating Color Stick - S2 Peach Flush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/16/2009

Ahh, a dream for dry skin. It feels so cool and fresh whan I apply it. And after using the Nars multiples, it really blends like a dream too and pigment is WAY better than with multiples. I think this might be the most pigmented of the Shiseido Accentuating Color Sticks colors. The price for this one was about 30 euros, even tho I received mine in a swap. I am cool toned and some peachy colors …Read more

Eye Shadow - Laura Mercier - Eye Basics in Buff

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/16/2009

I am really disappointed with this. I used to love the older eye basics but Laura Mercier did some changes other than just packaging. The older eye basics never creased on me and I trusted them as a base. They would be more thick and dry faster than these new ones that seems quite slippery and take longer to dry. Also when I wear this this one creases easily. With older ones I had, I used one …Read more

You know I swapped for this without really knowing what the color was like. I am NW 20 and I can wear this shade. It gives me an effect of bronzer, without all those yucky peachy, yellow or orange tones. It is so sheer and buildable, I have so many different MAC blushes and I havent yet tried one shade tha looks awful on me!
