In the pan this looks like a charcoal color, but swirl your fingertip in it, tap it along your cheek bone, then blend it in for the result of a neutral berry or plummy shade. This has nice pigment, so just one application will give a natural daytime look. It is buildable though, so you can add for more dramatic cheek bones or a night time look. I find I can also tint or lightly stain my lips with …Read more

Eye Shadow - wet n wild - Coloricon Eyeshadow Trio - Plaid to the Bone

This is part of the 2016 LE Autumn Lush collection that I picked up at Walgreens for $3. I almost didn't buy it because two out of the three colors are a bit deceiving in the pan.

The brow bone shade is the only one that looks in the pan the same as applied. This one is a pale shimmery bronze / champagne color. I find that it reminds me of the color of ginger ale soda …

I used this yesterday for the first time when I had to go to a company picnic in weather that was about 90°F & humid. I definitely recommend!

I let it fully dry & set after I showered & used moisturizer on my legs in the morning for about 10-15 minutes while I dried my hair. It stayed on all day, no running or transferring even though I had sweat dripping in the humidity …

In the pan this looks almost scary, like it would turn you into a disco ball. Thankfully, not true. I have this in Moonlight Pearls, and it gives a really pretty glow to the cheekbones. Nothing garish or OTT at all. The closest thing I have to compare this to is Wet 'n Wild's discontinued cult fave All Over Shimmer powder. Swatched side-by-side (I have a backup of WnW) they are very …Read more

Eyeliner - Jordana Cosmetics - 12 Hour Made to Last Liquid Eyeliner Pencil

Wow! If you're looking for the intensity of a liquid eyeliner but aren't very good or practiced at applying it (like me), then this is the product for you! This gives you that look with the ease of a pencil - and lasts awesomely to boot! What more could you ask, especially for $3? I'm in love, LOL!

I took a chance on this because it was the last one on the shelf at Walgreens, plus it was on sale for only $2. So glad I did! While this does look (especially the main eyelid color) almost like an emerald green, if you look at the pan from a low angle you can see that it's actually a grey with a pearly green sheen over it - so it comes out on your eyelids more like a duo-chrome, cool-toned …Read more

I know this palette has been out forever now, but I finally just got it for the first time - and glad I did. Really nice mix of cool & warm tones. You have some shimmery colors, but also a few satin or matte ones too. There's a peach, a pink, white, gold, a couple taupe shades, a couple medium brown shades, plus cranberry, dark brown, and a black (which is nice too - most palettes have …Read more

I've bought quite a few eyeshadow brands that are this EXACT same shade when you compare them in the pans - a matte, almond shade. Looks very nondescript & boring in the pan. I have to say I've never once been moved to review a shade like this ever - until now. The pigmentation and creaminess makes this indispensable as a staple & blows every brand I've ever tried of this …Read more

Palettes - L'Oreal Paris - La Palette Nude 1 and Nude 2

Apr/11/2015

I had snatched up La Palette Nude 2 before Nude 1, but I'm really glad I ended up getting both. First, I find the pigmentation & color payoff as well as blend-ability to be equally very good in each palette, so application is very nice. You can make up your eyes lighter or layer on more (without having to use a trowel) for more intensity. I absolutely never wear any eye shadow without …Read more

Better than sex? Ummm, honey, then you're not doing it right.

I got this included for free (full size) with an HSN deal with the Chocolate Bar palette & a couple other things. I do like the eyeshadows that I bought the package deal for, but I'm very glad I didn't pay extra for this hot mess. Very clumpy formula to begin with. If you don't use an eyelash comb …
