I hate the way this feels, the way it peels, and the way it doesn't make me feel moisturized afterwards. What a shame they keep putting it with all the GWP's!

Lipstick - NARS Cosmetics - Tzigane

Jan/31/2012

I have found my HG nude lipstick! I saw this originally on Temptalia, where it looks too dark for her. However, it is perfect for my NC25 skin (MUFE Mat Velvet + 40, NARS SG Santa Fe). I enjoy the sleek packaging, and there is no smell that I can notice. It's comfortable to wear without being noticeably greasy or dry, although it isn't particularly moisturizing. Still, it's the …Read more

Mascara - Maybelline New York - Lash Stiletto Waterproof Mascara

Nov/23/2011

First impressions:
-Brush makes the mascara easy to apply.
-Clean, lengthening effect. Pretty natural looking.

Update:
Okay. After trying other mascaras (or rather, going back to my beloved Maybelline the Falsies Waterproof) this thing is just sad. Yes, it does lengthen, but in such a wimpy, sad way that it's quite pathetic. Plus, the effects of this product are …

Highlighters - NARS Cosmetics - Highlighting Blush Powder in Albatross

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/28/2011

NARS Albatross is a highly pigmented, wonderfully blendable highlighter that does a beautiful job and adds dimensional shimmer to any look. However, I personally find most highlighter reviews to be very unhelpful, so I will focus on doing a comparison between NARS Albatross and my other favorite highlighter, MAC Shimpagne. For reference, I'm Asian with NC25-30 skin (I also match to NARS …Read more

Blush - MILANI - Minerals Blush - Luminous [DISCONTINUED]

The claims of this as an exact or almost-exact dupe of NARS Orgasm are no lie. They're both the same shade of light pink with a bit of peach and a golden shimmer. It's a beautiful shade, although in my experience it's difficult to get it to show up on skin tones darker than NC/NW 20.

The texture of this blush is wonderfully milled and blendable. I was …

Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Mineralize Blush - Nuance [DISCONTINUED]

This is a very sparkly peachy-coral blush. When I swatched Chanel's JC Espeigle, I was reminded of Nuance, but I prefer Nuance on my NC20-25 skin. The shade blends in more convincingly to give me a dimensional, pigmented blush, and yet is very wearable.

I'm actually inclined to think the shade might be *too* wearable. It is somewhat difficult to get it to show up …

Note about purchasing: I had a $6 CVS extrabucks coupon which, when combined with the ongoing Physician's Formula sale and my joining of the CVS Beauty Club, resulted in me paying only a few dollars for this blush! Keep your eye out for beauty bargains like these - they do happen :)

I received this item in a swap several weeks ago, and have been very happy with the results. For reference, I have now tested Sin out a handful of times over a period of several weeks. I have light-medium NC20-25 skin, wear NARS SG in Santa Fe, L'Oreal True Match in W3, and MUFE Mat Velvet+ in 30 or 40.

The shade is a wearable peachy-nude with a satin finish. When …
