I LOVE this product! As a stain-a-holic, I love the multitasking simplicity and smudged on ease of lip/cheek stains. When I ran low on benetint, I pulled this neglected piece out - and now it's my favorite thing to swipe on and go. It's alot more pink than benetint (which is a rosy color), so the two are different but i'm sure i am the only one who notices once it is on. …Read more

Polishes - ZOYA - Jane

Oct/05/2009

I rarely wear nailpolish and when i do it's usually a fun bright color. Zoya Jane is the only neutral i like, and it's exactly "my nails but better." It's a perfect work color, and i just put it on for an interview tomorrow. I don't take the best care of my nails as far as buffing, etc (i don't even know how one takes care of nails), so this is an easy …Read more

Eye Shadow - mark. - i-mark Custom Pick Eye Shadow in Minx

This is a gorgeous neutral taupe - on the lighter side. I am wearing this on my lids today over Benefit creaseless cream shadow in prenup. Really brightens my eyes without too much shimmer or color. I usually pick a light champagne color to brighten, but minx is a great alternative and doesn't wash me out as much. Pairs gorgeously with dark purple liner. For $4, you can't go wrong …Read more

Palettes - Hard Candy - Secret Stash Makeup Palette

May/31/2009

Ok product overall - the glosses are small and just ok, no color payoff. The eyeshadows are nice and sparkly, true to color - EXCEPT the green which can hardly be seen. The bronzer is a good color, no complaints there. I like the blot powder alot - it really does mattify and soak up oil. The palette is cardboard, very cute. Only complaint is I don't like flipping up and down to see the …Read more

Palettes - Bobbi Brown - Eye Kohl Palette

5.0

May/27/2009

I LOVE using this palette wet as a liner. It's become my HG liner - now all I need is brow powder, concealer, blush and gloss for a polished look! The colors indeed look different and I find that I use all the colors EXCEPT for the black. I think I'll save the black for a night out, but for daytime the sapphire, indigo, and khaki green are gorgeous. Also for a smokey eye, any of the …Read more

Eye Shadow - CLINIQUE - Color Surge in Bewitched

May/22/2009

I got this along with almost peach in a duo GWP a long time ago and never really used it until now. It makes a great neutral eye with the almost peach - I managed to essentially replicate a nude Bobbi Brown makeover that I got at a dept store - at 0 cost. What's great is I can also use Bewitched as a soft liner AND as a brow color in a pinch. Very versatile color that STAYS ON. Sure it …Read more

I like the eyeshadows in the palette alot. The light yellow was a bit weird in the beginning since it doesn't show up on my skin, but the more i use it the more i find it does a good job evening out my lid color. The sparkly peach is a neutral wash, the purple taupe is gorgeous for a slight daytime smoke, and the black is a great night smoke and liner.
The lipsticks are great - my …

Pressed Powders - Urban Decay - De-Slick Mattifying Powder

5.0

May/14/2009

Like everyone else said, this is a great at de-slicking my T-zone. I like to use it after applying sunscreen to my face and halfway through the day. The compact is cute but I'd prefer a lighter, less bulky design. 180 degree opening would be better as well. Also the sponge it came with is crap - I use a mini buki brush instead. Application is light but super effective. Better than blot …Read more

Crème - benefit Cosmetics - Some Kind-A Gorgeous

Apr/13/2009

This foundation is great for covering large areas (like after a massive acne attack) or as spot concealing. I agree it's not good on dry skin, so make sure you moisturize first! Also it settles a little bit into fine lines under my eyes if they're not properly moist. HOWEVER, despite all that, I still love it because it's so light and airy - feels like I have nothing on. It is …Read more

Moisturizers - Desert Essence - Organic Jojoba Oil

Apr/12/2009

LOVE this product! I have had acne on my forehead for the last 10 years and I never grew out of it like I should have. In those 10 years I have tried everything short of accutane - and some things worked better than others, but at the end of the day, I still had awful cystic acne. Jojoba oil used as a moisturizer in conjunction with my Clarisonic face brush and any mild cleanser has been …Read more
