This was my "test shade" for Revlon's new line of lippies when they were launched because I knew this shade would work for me. I would call this a peach rose-nude. It has fine shimmer in it. This type of shade amounts to an "MLBB" look for my coloring, so I tend to have a lot of lippies of this shade in my stash. This is pretty good, and a cheaper alternative to some of …Read more

I'm probably not the best judge of this since I've never really liked the *nude* nude look. Give me a peachy-nude, or a nude-pink, but the true nude always seems to give me something I call sick-face. Being into a ColorBurst buying binge, and seeing rave reviews for this shade I naturally bought it and had instant buyers remorse. For some reason, I few months later I pick it up and …Read more

Probably my most worn lippie this spring, and that is saying something. I was going through a lavender/ lilac pink phase and this was extremely wearable - one of those lippies you can just swipe on from the tube and go. Love the lightness of the ColorBurst formula - in my opinion though, the formula works much better in the lighter shades. It's a little harder to work the deep & …Read more

I feel compelled to write a review for this product as I think application method is everything. I've had this compact for several months now - it has been doing little more than collecting dust in my stash. Upon purchase, I applied it with a sponge and was less than thrilled with the results. Coverage was heavy, looked mask-like and seemed to make my face look greasier and greasier as the …Read more

I also got as a deluxe sample from Sephora, so after years of hearing this raved about I am finally checking it out for myself. I think I'm underwhelmed. It's nice. But nothing to stop the presses over. I think of this as an orangier version of NARS Laguna--has that same shimmery gleam-y quality to it. However, Laguna makes me look tanned and this doesn't really. I'd say …Read more

Mine also came with an oily residue on the inside of the package which BUMS me out because the packaging is paper/ cardboard. It soaked into the corners so mine is practically falling apart now and looks really gross in places. Strangely enough and thankfully the powder is untouched. No idea where that oily stuff came from--I'm suspecting the plastic strip they place on the mirror to …Read more

This is a *new* brush by Clinique. Retails for $32.50 and has a long clear lucite handle. It has natural bristles that are very soft and silky and the brush, when brand new, is in the shape of a soft paddle--in other words it has somewhat defined edges. The broadest part of the brush is soft, flat, and firm--like a very large, but fluffy foundation brush. The sides are a little more narrow …Read more

What is up with these bronzers stinking to high heaven? Seriously. Milani's XL bronzer smells like Nair, and this one smells like the active (read stinky) ingredient in self-tanner. One huge lippie off for this because it makes this almost intolerable for me to use near my face. Everything else about this bronzer is pretty nice, so the stench is a big shame. I'm not typically …Read more

I have this in "Healthy Glow" which has segments of a deep milk chocolate brown color interspersed with segments of pale pink. I was attracted to this one because it lacked the orange/ red/ terra cotta tones that look bad on my fair skin w/ yellow undertones. I like bronzers that give a *brown* tint as opposed to a golden or bronze tint. In other words, minimal red tones are best for …Read more

I recently spent about 4 hours in the dept. store seeking out a new HG bronzer for the summer and this is the one I chose--over BB, NARS, Dior, Chanel, EL, Smashbox, YSL, and Lancome's ridiculously huge "Sun Cherub" bronzer. Seems like everyone is coming out with a dinner-plate size bronzer this year and I secretly really wanted one. Spicy Sun is not exactly saucer-sized, but it …Read more
