Lipstick - Max Factor - Lipfinity 140 Charming

A warm red coral with gold frost. Very pretty, and I can see it work on many skin tones.
texture is beautiful and silky upon application, if you touch it before it dries it is most dreadfully tacky and gross though. Follow the instructions on the box and use thin layers. If you need more than one, wait until the first layer dries properly!
The doe-foot applicator is great for the …

Eyeliner - The Body Shop - Eye Kohl Black

5.0

Feb/15/2010

I have used this product in Taupe, so this review will be for that shade.

I've owned this eyeliner for around four years now, and it is the absolutely best shade+formula I've come across. It's a deep, cool brown, distinctly non-black, creamy yet very long-wearing. Makes my blue eyes pop, defines without looking unnatural. Great worn lightly on a "no makeup" …

Mascara - CLINIQUE - Naturally Glossy Mascara

5.0

Nov/12/2009

I can't believe I haven't reviewed this product yet!
It gives slightly glossy colour to lashes, but does not enhance them in fullness or length. It gives a nice natural look, perfect for pale but otherwise lush lashes. It does not make my lashes stiff and I love the brush as well :)

Will definitely repurchase!

Pressed Powders - Maybelline New York - Dream Matte Pressed Powder ] [DISCONTINUED]

I really like this powder: finely milled, keeps oilies and eyeshadows in place (great as an e/s primer) and matches my skin well. Cheap. Not visible in the HEY THAT'S A LOT OF POWDER way, very smooth.

I own this in golden beige(3) which is alright during summer but I'll probably have to hunt down another shade come paler months.

The packaging is retarded and you …

I own this in 63, a peachy apricot pink shade.

Packaging: Sleek, silver metal case. The top stays on even when tossed in a messenger bag full of books=very firm. Slightly smaller than other lipsticks. Looks nice.

Shade: Very cute, looks good peachy and lovely even on my quite pigmented lips. Flatters my yellow-toned skin.

Product: quite a stiff lipstick, on lips …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Brick-O-La (Amplified Creme)

3.0

Aug/16/2009

Brick-o-la is a deep warm bricky red. Slightly cranberry in shade and in the lovely amplified formula.

Blotted it looks like a true MLBB colour (my lips are naturally very pigmented) but worn straight it looks muddy and unsophisticated-goth on me.

Texture and wear are both pleasant.

I don't reach for it often since I find that Isa Dora in Cranberry performs …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Matte Lipstick - Russian Red

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/16/2009

Russian red is a cool-toned red matte lipstick. It's not overly dry but packs some serious pigment - if you stray with this it will stain.
Looks great with pale skin but it's simply too cool to look that good on my warm-toned skin. Still love it in the winter when my skin turns, uh, white, and seemingly lacks undertone.

Very bloody red, but has a tendency to turn pinky …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Cremesheen - Speak Louder

Aug/16/2009

This is my 2nd cremesheen and one of my favourite lippies.
I usually pick warm reds and corals but this one was so pretty I couldn't leave it on the shelf.

It's a hot pink shade, but not harsh or in your face and looks good on my NC15 skin, does not channel the corpse bride look that other cool pinks do. It's not particularly cool either, though definitely not a …

Lotions/ Creams - Eucerin - Calming Creme Daily Moisturizer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/16/2009

Had to try this as I stumbled upon it in a cvs.
Initially I was not very impressed, it seemed like every other eucerin lotion only more expensive, but since it successfully sorted out my scaly, tight and itchy skin (and lasted through an entire day+night) and soothed any irritated red parts, I am now a convert.

Scentless (or nearly), thick and white. You only need a little, so …

Polishes - OPI - You're a Pisa Work

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/17/2009

over all a lovely shade of hot pink. Not a cool colour, which is brilliant for my yellow toned skin, but rather a creamy, bright pink rose.
I don't detect any fuchsia or magenta in it.

It applies lovely, dries and wears well. Love it on both feet and hands.

Only reason I wouldn't repurchase is because OPI has so many beautiful hot pink shades and I would love …
