Eyeliner - Physicians Formula - Shimmer Strips Gel CreamLiner Trio - Blue Eyes

I lovelovelove this cream liner, it's amazing! I purchased the trio for "Blue Eyes" for around $7.99 at Rite Aid. I adore the consistency and texture of this cream liner - it truly is creamy (more so than MAC, not as 'tacky') and glides on so smoothly with no streaking.... the best part is that it STAYS all day. I was amazed, I assumed "oh, it's so creamy …Read more

I really like this product as a leave-in conditioner of sorts. It's not as oily or sticky as a serum or oil, it's very lightweight! I feel like it does help or repair hair, or fend off breakage/split ends. My hair just feels a lot more fresh and healthy when I run my fingers through it after using this product for only a few weeks. The price is steep (around $50USD) but I only need 1 …Read more

So I love creme blushes, especially in the summer and definitely more pigmented colors. I picked this up on a whim at CVS for around $9-11, I forget exactly.

I never, ever reach for it or use it. The color is fine, but the consistency and texture of it just isn't very creamy or easy to blend... I don't have dry skin and I always use a moisturizer so I dunno what the deal is …

Palettes - MAC Cosmetics - Velvet 6 Smoked Eyes Holiday 2006 Palette

Dec/30/2010

So, I bought this pallette in 2006... I definitely think if you're a person that knows how to apply eyeshadow and likes smokey eyes, it's great - beautiful but unique colors, nothing too outrageous: club, satin taupe, malt - tend to be more practical colors. I, however, am an amateur at eyeshadow application and smokey eyes, so I haven't use this as it should be. But I do use the …Read more

Dec/28/2010

I've been looking for a hair mask/treatment for my naturally coarse and dry hair. I don't heat style (~3x a month?) or color my hair, but unfortunately, the natural texture is between straw and silk! I've tried: terax crema, phyto, nexxus humectress, bumble & bumble... nothing made an overwhelming "oh my gosh, look at the difference!" impression. THIS STUFF DID. I …Read more

Lips - Sephora Collection - Lush Flush Wine Lip & Cheek Stain

Nov/26/2010

I used to buy this years ago, I liked it b/c it's more a gel than a drying stain... but back then they had only 1 deep red color which was a great for a base for red lipstick or a really vampy look... but I was in the market for something a little more everyday, so I picked this up in the light pink "rose" color, which is MUCH different from the sheer berry colors... and it …Read more

Fragrances - Viktor & Rolf - Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum

Nov/22/2010

So, I saw all the reviews & comments about Flowerbomb and initially I was like "ew, I would hate that". I am a rare breed of female - I don't like flowers or anything remotely floral. Clothes, home decorating, weddings, candles, perfumes, holidays, etc - I'm just not a fan. I walk by my office's front lobby and gag at the smell of the lillies - yeah, it's …Read more

Lip Gloss - NYX Professional Makeup - Mega Shine Lipgloss

Nov/17/2010

I normally *hate* glosses, I've tried pretty much everything from L'oreal juicy tubes to Chanel glossimers to MAC lip glasses - I detest them all. Sticky, sloppy, bad packaging, weird smells/tastes....so I usually just stick to lip balm. Glosses all sit 3/4 full in my makeup drawer, such a waste. But I can't believe how much I LOVE the NYX 'sweetheart' gloss! It has a …Read more

Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Matte Blush - Bite Of An Apple (Venomous Villains)

I love this color.... since I have been loving coral for the past few months. This is a bit more red-coral than true coral. It's great for a Snow White sorta flush. It's highly pigmented but if you tap off excess blush, it's a bit more wearable.... although I'm excited for a big occasion or fun night when I can really wear it! I would definitely repurchase.

Lip Gloss - CHANEL - Glossimer - Bikini Peach 257

I am not a lipgloss type of girl but I heard raves about Chanel glossimers, and since this was a limited edition color and I was in a peach/coral mood, I picked this one. Meh - that's all I've got. It was very sheer and light, and doesn't stay on long. I will say it's not as sticky or tacky as NARS or MAC glosses. I won't repurchase.
