Liquid - COVERGIRL - Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation

2.0
Created with Sketch.

2 months ago

As much as I love the initial application and finish, this foundation oxidizes more than any other foundation that I’ve ever tried. I bought the 2nd lightest shade I believe and it turned to a dark, almost orange color within a few minutes. It almost looked like the color of a bad self tanning product. I tried different primers, application methods, etc. before finally deciding to throw in the …Read more

Lipstick - REVLON - Super Lustrous Creme Lipstick - Coralberry

This is an almost exact dupe of MAC's Ever Hip (limited edition and HTF). Coral berry is a *hair* darker than Ever Hip and the finish isn't dead on (almost, though!). I put one on each lip and could not tell the difference. Fantastic bright, but wearable pink coral. Will definitely repurchase.

Attention all you dry eyelid guys n gals!! This has become my all time favorite primer. Even in the hot, humid, southern heat this works AMAZING. I am one of the few people (at least from what I have gathered) that has dry eyelids... I will even get dry skin flakies occasionally, which seems to be pretty rare. This works great to moisturize/prep my eyelid as well as to prevent creasing. I have …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Hard Candy - Sheer Envy Primer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/25/2011

This is by far my favorite drugstore primer. For reference, my favorite primers are Korres Silicone Free primer and the Tarte Clean Slate primer (in third place, Hard Candy Sheer Envy). Yes, the consistency is kinda weird/can seem "gross", but it blends out like a dream and really helps my foundation application, skin tone, and overall feel of my face. It's almost like there is a …Read more

Fragrances - GUERLAIN - Aqua Allegoria Pamplelune Eau de Toilette

Jun/09/2010

Lol at the "cat pee" references... lucky for me, I am 1000000000% dog lover :) (never owned a cat in my life).

On me, Pamplelune is a wonderful and fresh grapefruit/green fragrance that is in NO way candied/synthetic-sweet (yay!). This fragrance literally smells like you are in a very grassy field cutting up a grapefruit. I love the "realness" of Pamplelune... it …

Fragrances - Lancaster - Covet by Sarah Jessica Parker ] [DISCONTINUED]

4.0

May/02/2010

The thing about Covet that makes it so alluring, interesting, and addicting are that several of the notes are SO opposite from each other- Lavender, chocolate, lemon, magnolia...


The final composition is an interesting/weird green, slightly floral gourmand... and I really like it.


I commend SJP on her second perfume, but I am not surprised that it didn't do …

Fragrances - J. Lo - Sunkissed Glow

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/03/2010

I am really liking Sunkissed Glow. It is a great tropical, beachy, summer type fragrance WITHOUT THE COCONUT... Don't get me wrong, I love a thick and sweet coconut based fragrance every now and then, but for most of the time, it is just too much for me- even during the peak of summer. You definitely get a lot of orange blossom and sweet warm florals in Sunkissed, but it never gets too …Read more

Fragrances - Moschino - Cheap and Chic I Love Love [DISCONTINUED]

Mar/11/2010

As much as I am trying to pick up on the different notes and think through the fragrance, all I am getting is sweet lemony notes and pink grapefruit. There are some veeery slight florals in the dry down, but nothing that stands out. I adore the ad and bottle, but am completely unimpressed with the actual juice :/. While I Love Love is definitely relaxed and great for summer, you could easily find …Read more

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Baby Phat Goddess

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/13/2010

I was recently able to pick up a travel sized (0.25 oz) bottle of Goddess for dirt cheap. I am overall very glad I did. The thing I most appreciate about Goddess is that it is a full on floral that is totally wearable. While I love florals, so many instantly make my allergies a mess (sneezing). Goddess doesn't do this AT ALL. I swore I got some light fruits in the beginning (specifically …Read more

Fragrances - mark. - Jewel Eau de Toilette

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/01/2010

The best things about Jewel is the fact that although this is a rich gourmand, it is NOT sickly sweet at all (think pink sugar, fantasy, etc). I actually love the super sweet fragrances, but many people just can't handle them. This is a very simple fragrance, which I like. Also- the lily partners well with the caramel. A plus- the bottle is really cute~
