Smells Like Heaven, But..

First of all, some props for Beautylish. Awesome customer service, fantastic return policy, and lightning fast shipping. All around excellent place to shop.

Now to the product. For reference I've got sensitive combination skin with occasional hormonal breakouts. And I'm pushing 50 harder than the school bully pushes a nerd at recess …

Best $30 I have spent on a beauty product in 20 years, because its the only lash curler that actually works on my small, slightly hooded almond shaped eyes. I'd actually given up curling my lashes. I've tried everything from Revlon to Shu Uemura.
The Surratt curler eliminates the two main problems I've had: Pinching and not being able to get all my lashes in the darn thing! …

I don't know what I can say about these unbelieveable shadows that I didn't cover in my review of the Orchid Haze quad. But I will say this; I applied these shadows at 7AM, spent the first warm day In the Pacific Northwest (about 80 degrees) helping my husband load and unload a vintage Mercedes onto a trailer (he restores them as a hobby), got home at 10PM to find that all I had was …Read more

The only real problem I have with this product is the fact that it includes citrus oils. These can be sensitizing, though I've had no adverse reaction whatsoever and I have very sensitive skin and mild Rosacea. Another thing that should be mentioned is that in my opinion this is not full coverage. It is a good solid medium, but those with major blemishes or discolorations will need …Read more

First of all, the colors in this palette are unique and gorgeous.It has a great array of finishes and a nice balance of highlight and transitional shades. Plus, it comes with a full size dual ended brush that is actually good quality! Also, you're getting a whopping 15.6 grams of product.

Perhaps I've become a bit spoiled with my Tom Ford and Estee Lauder Pure Color …

Tom Ford's lipsticks and I didn't get on at all, so naturally I've been well able to resist the rest of the line. But when I saw Orchid Haze I knew it was for me.

This quad includes a pale pink tinged frosted champagne, a frosted rose gold taupe, a satin medium mauve tinged rose, and a deep plum that seems matte but has the slightest bit of rosy micro glitter that is …

Now this is something worth paying a premium price for. What an exceptional formula! Light as a feather and so comfortable to wear. Great pigmentation and true color.

I chose 4 shades to try; Amazing Grace, Bond Girl, Love Liberty, and Very Victoria. As with the K.I.S.S.I.N.G. lipsticks, these shades seem to run neutral to warm which may be difficult for decidedly cool toned girls …

I've tried 2 shades; Bitch Perfect and Penelope Pink. 3 stars for Penelope Pink (which is in no way pink at all), 1 Star for Bitch Perfect.

Formula wise, my review of Tom Ford's Pink Dusk is interchangeable with Bitch Perfect. Colorwise, you'd think considering the name one would be getting a universally flattering everyday shade. Not so. This is a light coral shade …

Being a pretty major "Green Warrior", I'm always trying to find an organic skincare line I can actiually use. It's virtually impossible to find organic skincare with no fragrance/essential oils! Unfortunately, I have ultra sensitive skin and mild rosacea and the second I even think of using anything with a fragrance or essential oils, my skin cells take on their best Clint …Read more

I'm going to refer to this as an "IRL" contour and highlighting kit. Going to town on your contour areas with NYX Taupe blush or MAC Omega eye shadow may look great on camera or in a dark club, but in "In Real Life" it makes you look like a drag queen at best or a corpse at worst. And don't start with that "If you blend it out well..." nonsense. Grayish …Read more
