Lipstick - REVLON - Super Lustrous Creme Lipstick - Pink Velvet

I've passed up the shade Pink Velvet by Revlon literally for decades - since I first started buying lipstick as a teen in the 70's. Back then, it looked like something only grandma's wore.. So yes, a true 40's and 50's shade. Plus, the shade appeared to be a warmed toned pink, suitable for olive skinned beauties which I am not. My skin was fair/cool in youth, but age …Read more

Liquid - MAC Cosmetics - Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation

I thought this foundation/concealer mix near perfect, at first. Shade NW30 a perfect match for my skin tone. Applied with a damp beauty blender I had a satiny finish that lasted all day. Dotted under my eyes and blended this baby covered my dark circles perfectly, a perfect shade match to the foundation, obviously. Ever use concealer that didn't quite jive with your foundation? Ugh. No …Read more

Well.. in the mood for a spring pink blush, a shade I haven't worn in a decade though previously I only work pink... I figured start cheap hence Fantastic Plastic Pink.

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Powder Kiss Lipstick - Devoted To Chili

Devoted to chili is a gorgeous shade of orange red. Application is easy one swipe. Hence 2 stars. Formula is severely drying makes my lips peel every time i wear it. In general i find Mac lipsticks super drying but this is awful . Lip balm no help . Maybelline mattes are similar to powder kiss but non drying for me .

Came across the reviews for this product right about when my Anastasia of Beverly Hills Dip Brow dried out and I accidentally moistened it with tap water rather than a sterile solution. Didn't want bacteria growing in there, so off to the nearest drug store I went to buy this Milani Product. My normal brow go- to's are ABH brow wiz, to pencil in bare spots and still look natural, OR …Read more

Last winter I went through a phase of having to find a new, different, scent. Mostly because I live close to a local Ulta and I tried on, purchased, then returned several scents. At some point I decided I should stick to the rollerball versions because maybe something would grow on me. Enter Si. I did not like it at first. Found it sharp, artificial. However, I kept the rollerball in my bag …Read more

OMG I love this. My entire life I've not been able to properly apply pen or liquid liners, though without fail I continue to try different products. High and low end. Anyway... my expectations were low but I really wanted a nice clean slightly winged line on my upper lid. Success! Easy peasy to apply, doesn't dry in seconds so IF you make a mistake you can fix. Once set, stays put …Read more

Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Powder Blush- Melba

First ever peachy blush that is wearable on my NW30 complexion. I don't detect any pink undertones on me at all, but perhaps the kiss of coral which gently brightens does the trick. Originally purchased to go with my fall lip shades, I've discovered it's a great look with my neutral/mauve lip colors, and most eye looks, also. It lasts all day after initial application, no need …Read more

Lipstick - Urban Decay - Vice Lipstick

I've purchased two shades from this line so far, in crème formulas. Both glide on easily with your typical crème shine that wears down within about an hour to a matte look. Long lasting enough, leaves a slight color stain if you don't have a chance to reapply. Not drying to the lips, but stays put, no feathering. To the colors...

1) Ravenswood. Are you looking for a …

Eyeliner - Urban Decay - 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Smoke

Jul/07/2018

I have to admit I was disappointed with this liner. On the plus side, it is easy to apply, and it a perfect neutral gray. Cons: does not stay put, migrates, fades and smudges rather quickly. Slightly better performance if I intentionally smudge it with a liner brush upon application. This is only my second UD liner and it did not perform nearly as well as the first, which was from the Waterline …Read more
