Pressed Powders - Hourglass Cosmetics - Ambient Lighting Powder - Diffused Light

Jun/21/2018

So 4 or 5 years ago I purchased Dim Light. I made my skin look fabulous, finish wise,but something was just off. It lasted 5 years for me because I didn't use it everyday, especially when my skin was dry in winter.

I just finished it and also finally figured what was slightly off. It was making me look slightly bronzed. Not obvious at all, but to me I noticed it once I …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Matte Lipstick - Mehr

Apr/23/2018

I had two Mac lipsticks in my rotation: Faux and Brave. Some say they look the same but Brave is darker with a bit more purple in it. Yes, it is darker! They are different. Yes they are!

Anyway, I wanted something a little darker than Brave but in the same color family because I am boring and do not like adventure when it comes to makeup. I have fair skin with slightly cool …

Blush - Hourglass Cosmetics - Ethereal Glow Ambient Lighting Blush

5.0

Sep/03/2017

I am NW15, and if I put on a couple layers of this, it imparts at nice, soft pink look. An English Rose kind of look, but it is just so subtle that it fades in the early afternoon (I put my makeup on at 5 am for work). But I use it as a blush topper. I wear mostly cool blushes (due to my cool undertones). My favorite everyday blush is Marc Jacobs Lush and Libido. It is very pigmented, but …Read more

Lipstick - Bobbi Brown - Lip Shimmer - Raspberry

Dec/30/2016

I was shopping with some friends and saw this at the BB counter. It looked so pretty, sitting there all pink and shimmery. At first I didn't even bother swatching it, because it looked like something a stripper might wear, or my 4 year old daughter might wear when playing dress up (as a late 30's elementary school teacher, not really the look I need). I swatched it and it was …Read more

Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Powder Blush - Peaches

Jul/15/2016

This is the first MAC blush I have tried. I wanted a peach blush. This was what the MA recommended, and I certainly got what I wanted: a peach blush. No pink in this at all. But therein lies the problem. I have a slight pink undertone. This blush was just too orange for me, and didn't look natural. I need a peach blush with some pink in it for it to look natural on me. Also, the …Read more

Crème - Laura Mercier - Silk Creme Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

The new formula is awful. I looked like a cadaver being prepped for an open casket viewing. My skin looked fake and flat and heavy. And I have good skin. If it weren't so expensive I would save it and use it to recreate the cadaver look for Halloween and dress up as a dead old lady. I will be returning asap. If you want to appear as if you walk among the living, try a different …Read more

Lip Liners - MAC Cosmetics - Naked Liner

Wow. I guess I am glad so many people got this to work for them. I can pretty much bet they are all way better at makeup application than myself too. This was horrible on me. It goes on and looks like concealer, but any lipstick I put over it just looked strange. Like I colored my lips with a crayon, if that makes sense. I suppose I prefer how my natural pigment interacts with lipstick …Read more

Eye Shadow - NARS Cosmetics - Madrague Duo

I have red eyelids. Very red eyelids. They have always been that way. Even with Laura Mercier eye basics and a wash of Ivory eyeshadow, to try and get a natural looking eye, the red would still kinda show through. I went into Sephora and the sales lady suggested this and put it on for me. It was amazing, I had a natural looking eye and it wasn't red, all without using super pigmented …Read more

Lip Gloss - NARS Cosmetics - Chihuahua

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/07/2015

Gorgeous! Perfect! I was looking to replace my Bobbi Brown Petal, I loved the color so much, but the tube was getting old and the gloss was too darn sticky. Chihuahua was a very very close color. It is a sheer, warm pink, quite muted. Definitely MLBB shade. Makes my lips look youthful and soft, and is perfect for a neutral look or paired with heavier eye makeup. I think this shade would …Read more

Lip Gloss - MAC Cosmetics - Dazzleglass - Steppin' Out

4.0

Jan/07/2015

I bought this and the Smile Dazzleglass together to pair with some of my favorite lipsticks. Steppin Out is beautiful but scary in the tube. Hot pink and glittery, not at all something I would wear on its own. However, I paired it with my Bobbi Brown lip color in Pink Peony and the results are gorgeous. The lip gloss adds dimension to the lipstick and brightens the face.
Also looks …
