Makeup Brushes - Sephora Collection - Slanted Blush Brush

This brush is great for placing blush on the apples of the cheek and blending it out toward the temples. It also strikes a happy medium of being dense enough to pick up the product and fluffy enough to diffuse the color. The initial smell disappears after washing the brush regularly for a few months. Unfortunately, this thing sheds like crazy even with proper brush-cleaning technique. I have to …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Essence of Beauty - Crease

Jul/05/2010

This is a great set of brushes. The larger one of the two, for my smaller eyes, works well at depositing and blending out the outer-v color. Its hairs are shorter than the MAC 226 (crease brush) so the application is a bit more precise. I feel like I have better control, which is great when your lid space is miniscule. It's also larger and fluffier than a MAC 219 (pencil brush), so it …Read more

Lipstick - wet n wild - MegaLast Lip Color - Just Peachy

I wanted to like this product because previous reviews have been so positive, but it just didn't work out for me. I liked the color--a very opaque light pinky-peach. However, the formula is terrible. Even after I've primed my lips, the lipstick still emphasizes all the lines on my lips. It's the worse matte formula I've tried.

Eyeliner - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Aqua Eyes - Matte Black 0L

I'm on my second MUFE black eyeliner. I've tried a lot of eyeliners--many are too dry or they fade within 6 hours. I really needed something that can stay put and stay vibrant throughout the day. This eyeliner performs exceptionally. It truly is waterproof--the pigmentation hardly fades even after a shower. However, it does smudge. My eyes water a lot, so after a long day, some …Read more

Moisturizers - CLINIQUE - Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief [DISCONTINUED]

Jul/04/2010

I'm on my fourth jar of this stuff. I like the way it feels on my skin after I apply it and wait for it to dry. After it dries, it makes my face feel incredibly smooth, though not really super moisturized, as suggested by its name. The product only moisturizes enough to keep my skin from feeling tight after I wash my face, so during winter time, it still leaves my face with some dry …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Lustre in Lady Bug

A wearable red lipstick for warm skin tones. The lustre finish imparts a nice sheen that's not too drying. It's a lot less severe than opaque, matte reds. For that reason, it doesn't really require a lip liner and all the work that is necessary when wearing a "serious" red lipstick. Throw it on and let it fade to a stain after a few hours. A good "let your hair …Read more

A great spring/summer fragrance. If you like inoffensive, light, floral scents, this is probably something you want to try out at your local Sephora. I was initially drawn to it several years back because it reminded me of pears for some reason, but it also has a musky wet-laundry-sitting-in-the-washer-for-too-long smell. The dry down was very pleasantly sweet, though, which convinced me to …Read more

Makeup Brushes - MAC Cosmetics - #219 Pencil Brush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/25/2010

A real workhorse in my brush collection. It works to deposit outer lid color on my small-ish eyes. It also does a great job applying highlight color in the inner corners. But most of all, the 219 smudges eyeliner really well when you want to do a smoky eye. The brush is a little too stiff to work in the crease for me, though. Even with repeated washing, there's no shedding. The brush …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Lustre Lipstick - See Sheer

Works as a subtle, coral color on my very pink, pigmented lips. It's not too bright but does add a nice orangey pop of color. The lustre formula isn't too drying. Had a good three hours of wear. Pretty pleased with the product, in general.

Lipstick - REVLON - Matte Lipstick - Nude Attitude

Nude with a tinge of peach. Given that it is a matte lipstick, it will be drying, but that can be rectified with lip balm and a bit of gloss. Seemingly a lot of work, right? But mattes tend to be more opaque and longer-lasting. So while it's not the most moisturizing lipstick out there, it does the job of erasing all color from my pigmented lips when I want to.
