Contour - Kevyn Aucoin - The Sculpting Powder

This is just the nicest contour... and I have repurchased at least 3 times already. I don't do instaglam contouring by any means but I do enjoy a natural contour and use a contouring product just about every time I do my face. This is probably my all time favorite after trying so many. I use the Medium shade. It's not to warm or ashy. It blends with little effort and can be applied …Read more

Contour - Smashbox - Holidaze Contour + Spotlight Palette

5.0
Created with Sketch.

5 months ago

This palette is part of Smashbox's 2018 Holiday Collection. Full retail is $39 but it has been on sale frequently before and after Christmas for less than $20. For that price it is an absolute bargain. It includes 3 matte contour/highlight shades (the same three shades Smashbox sells as a compact trio for light/medium skin tones @ $35, and the same product size pans.) Also, included are 6 …Read more

Palettes - NARS Cosmetics - Orgasm Infatuation Palette LE

5.0

This palette is absolutely gorgeous. They hit the packaging out of the park. Athough, the 3 shades inside are classics that a LOT of makeup lovers will already have. The quality is there. Included are: Orgasm blush, Laguna Bronzer and Orgasm Highlighting Blush Powder. All three powders are super smooth and blend nicely. LE holiday palettes can have inconsistent quality but I was surprised how …Read more

Eye Shadow - Too Faced - Sugar Cookie Eye Shadow Palette

4.0

7 months ago

This is a fun little palette. Cute, sturdy packaging and pretty, wearable colors. It has a vanilla cookie scent that surprisingly lingers a little longer than most scented Too Faced palettes... it's on your eyes though so it isn't too intrusive.

I enjoy how most of these shades perform with the exceptions of the icy/glittery white shade and the darkest plummy black. They both …

Eye Shadow - BECCA - Volcano Goddess Eye Shadow Palette

3.0
Created with Sketch.

7 months ago

Wow. This one was a bust. I am generally drawn to Becca products because they look natural but better. Radiant, healthy, low effort but pretty. Some shadows in this palette are great. The shimmers and mattes are so smooth and blend like a dream.

Then you look at the "pops of color." There is a cobalt blue, an icy white that reminds me of KVD's Thunderstruck (only in the …

Lip Treatments - Jane Iredale - Lip Drink

4.0

8 months ago

I have this in the color Flirt. The formula is spot on. It is moisturizing, has a nice slip without feeling too oily or tacky. The color is a very subtle warm, light pink mauve. Imo, it's a healthy and more natural look than most tinted balms (the bitten stain look seems to be what most lines are offering these days.) I also appreciate the SPF and how easy this is to wear without lip liner …Read more

Palettes - Pretty Vulgar - Nightingale Eyeshadow Palette

8 months ago

I recieved this palette in my Boxycharm this month. I have wanted to try this brand's eyeshadows for awhile now. But while they are cute; I don't really like the gimmicky bird cage layout/weird inconsistent pan size. I decided against a palette previously because I thought it would drive me crazy if I ever eventually depotted it. I was pleasantly surprised when I recieved this, until I …Read more

Eye Shadow - Unlisted Brand - Beauty People - Flash Fix Pearl Pigment Pact

5.0

These shadows are gorgeous. I am 100% not a glitter person but these are so concentrated and glowy, even though there is noticeable glitter I think many ages can pull them off.

I have the shades Romantic Light and Glow light. As the other reviewer said, they are best patted on the lid with a finger to warm up the formula. The price point is great for these too. I think I paid around $7 …

Highlighters - benefit Cosmetics - Dandelion Twinkle Highlighter

3.0
Created with Sketch.

9 months ago

I used to be a big Benefit fan in their prime (mid 2000's). Regular Dandelion is one of the few face products I've actually hit pan on and repurchased multiple times.

This is actually closer in color to their discontinued Georgia powder but with more radiance. I wish this didn't have flecks of noticable glitter in it because it would be great all over for …

Treatments (Eye) - TATCHA - The Pearl Tinted Eye Illuminating Treatment

2.0
Created with Sketch.

9 months ago

I have a love/hate relationship with this. I wanted it for the longest time and I love the idea of it but the execution just does not live up to the price tag.

First, the packaging although gorgeous (and very luxe) exposes all the product to air every time you use it so it's less effective. Air breaks down the formulation of any skincare treatment and this product is no exception …
