Lipstick - GUERLAIN - Rouge Automatique

Nov/12/2013

Guerlain has done it again. I got acquainted with the line when I bought #660 (Illusion, a berry-fuchsia with blue micro-glitter, applies sheerer than in the tube) and #662 (Reflex, an almost-neon strawberry/coral pink, applies pretty true to tube color). It's creamy, decently long lasting, and my lips did not feel dry. From there I bought #121 (Rouge d'Enfer - a bright red with ruby …Read more

Lipstick - REVLON - Super Lustrous Lipstick - Rose & Shine

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/23/2013

I agree with below hoangirl that this is a great MLBB shade for fair to medium Asian skin tones (around NW 20, Bobbi Brown Cool Beige, Tarte Light-Medium w/ black-brown hair, dark brown eyes). I often have a problem where popular MLBB shades are too brownish or grayish and makes me look tired or aged (e.g. MAC VGV, Chanel Rouge Coco in Perle) . This one has enough pink in it to perk up my …Read more

Lipstick - REVLON - Colorburst Lip Butter (All Shades) [DISCONTINUED]

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/18/2013

I originally, ahem, stole this from my sister. She had the shade "Red Velvet," Which is like a deep burgundy/maroon red (EXACTLY like the cupcake batter - for once the shade description is right on the money) which looks better on fair-to-light, neutral-to-cool skin tones (NW20ish, black hair, brown eyes, she's NC25ish, and this pulls the yellow tones in her skin making her look a …Read more

Fragrances - L'Occitane - The Vert - Green Tea

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/13/2013

Let me just start off by saying this doesn't last very long - I own both the solid & the EDT and both are very fleeting in terms of longevity. That being said, it's a citrusy, invigorating green tea scent with a touch of woods which I like wearing to the office. It's comforting but not sweet or cloying (rather fresh and sparkling) - a reminder of summer (temperate summers in …Read more

Lipstick - COVERGIRL - Lip Perfection - Everlasting

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/29/2012

I've been kind of obsessed with berry tones lately. However, having given myself a stricter beauty budget, I've stopped buying lipsticks (I have too many to finish/use up)... but since I didn't really have anything very berry-toned in my collection, I allowed myself to buy something a bit more budget-friendly.

At around $9 CDN, Everlasting is …

Lip Treatments - Dior - Addict Lip Glow Color Reviver Balm

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/11/2012

Oh my. I have a confession to make: even after clearing out my makeup stash to give away all the lip stuff I fell out of love with to my sister and her friends in the "poor university student" phase of their lives, I still have this unstoppable desire to pick up more lip stuff. It drives me nuts - but I walk into Sephora, Pharmaprix/SDM, Murale or any department store and I just have to …Read more

Blush - CLINIQUE - Blushing Blush Powder Blush - Cupid

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/11/2012

Cupid is my first Clinique blush. I bought it because my usual blushes were breaking my cheeks out for some reason (NARS, MAC, Bobbi Brown) - sniff. This doesn't irritate my skin or make me itchy like my old blushes were doing (so far anyway).

Cupid is a soft dusty pink with a satin finish (there is a glow but it is not frosty or glittery) - it reminds …

Lip Gloss - Dior - Addict Ultra-Gloss Reflect

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/04/2012

Yes, it's expensive ($35 CDN after taxes), and yes, it's not very long lasting (1 lippy off for the longevity). However, this gloss is fantastic in terms of texture and color range. It just glides on and the brush applicator takes out just the right amount of product. Furthermore, the case is gorgeous - a clear lucite and silver colored container with the word "Dior" etched on …Read more

Lip Treatments - Fresh - Sugar Rose Lip Treatment SPF 15

Jun/18/2012

I got two boxes of minis from Sephora as a part of the BI perks during my birthday month. I was very excited and really wanted to like it - I love Korres Lip Butters for the juicy tint but the pot design really drives me nuts (and the LB Glazes are NOT the same thing)... That being said, while it's pretty good, it's not the most amazing lip balm I've tried, and I feel it is …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Cremesheen Lipstick - Fanfare

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/15/2012

Holy batman in h*ll, I think I've finally found my "office" lipstick. I've bought countless MLBB/demure lipsticks, and while I certainly liked them a lot, I didn't love them. For example, I thought I'd found the right match in Clinique Beauty, which, while beautiful with most work outfits, looks a little too autumnal in the summer due to its brown tones, or MAC VGV …Read more
