Eyeliner - essence - Gel Eye Pencil Waterproof

Jan/07/2015

I bought this after seeing it on Allure's Best of Beauty list for 2014. I wish I was as impressed as they were. I bought this in the brown color and it really a black/brown. There is a hint of brown but its far too dark for my pale face and ginger lashes.

The texture is the bigger disappointment for me. You have to use some pressure to apply it and it doesn't glide on, I feel …

Lipstick - Bite Beauty - Lipstick in Pomegranate

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/29/2014

This is has replaced my former favorite red lipstick (Chanel in Lover). This is a bright pomegranate red color! It is slightly cool but the blue undertones are so minimal that the red looks almost neutral. It DOES NOT wear away to a pink or fuschia color. Bite's formula goes on creamy and maintains some of that moisture as it wears, although some of it does get absorbed and it becomes just …Read more

Highlighters - NYX Professional Makeup - Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator - Sunbeam

Dec/05/2014

I actually thought it was the liquid pink highlighter I had been searching for. Not so. When I got home and used it, I noticed it was a little bit of liquid and a whole lot of GLITTER! I had already put some on my cheekbones when I noticed that I looked like a Lisa Frank pencil case.
NYX products are actually are a good price and are well packaged, but since I can't use this product I …

Highlighters - benefit Cosmetics - High Beam Liquid Highlighter

Dec/04/2014

I had been on a search for a liquid highlighter for awhile. Everything I came across was too glittery or too gold. After testing this out in Sephora several times, I decided to make the splurge.
High Beam is a iridescent pink highlighter. It has a think consistency and NO glitter! It has a subtle shimmer that lasts an 8 hr day (also depends on where you put it, I use it only on my …

Lipstick - Too Faced - La Creme Lipstick - Jelly Bean

Nov/25/2014

This is my first experience with a Too Faced product, and I wasn't disappointed!
Jelly Bean is a blue based, bright, fuschia pink. The formula is creamy and looks a bit glossy when you first apply it. After about 20 minutes, some of the moisture is absorbed and it still looks creamy but no longer glossy. I love this about the lipstick because I don't care for a glossy look. Even …

This is the first fragrance I have been excited about in awhile! I normally get queasy at scent of vanilla infused fragrances but the blend of sandalwood and musk make this work. I really thought there was an essence of patchouli in it. It is a perfect balance between feminine and masculine. The scent lasted through my 5 mile run and leaves a soft musky layer as you wear it throughout the day.It …Read more

This is my new favorite red! I initially got this product in the Christmas sampler. It's a beautiful, bright, cherry red, more blue undertones that yellow.Its striking against my pale face, but makes my skin look bright The pencil is very pigmented, and is easy to apply (think at a stoplight) because of the creamy pencil design. It does wear away a bit but it has a staining quality, so even …Read more

I'll begin with the price. Nars lipsticks are on the pricey side but yet I always buy them because of the quality. Now... on to the important stuff...
This color is almost a near replica of Chanel's Vamp. A perfect, deep, blue based wine colour. It surpasses Vamp because of the texture. It is a great balance between a matte and creamy lipstick. This means that it's easy to …

Brows - Just for Redheads - Dream Brow stick Gingergold

Oct/03/2014

As a redhead, I've had a love/hate relationship with eyebrow products. I envy girls with thick,dark eyebrows! So in an attempt to make mine appear more full, I've tried almost every product out there, except it's a struggle to find a product that matches or comes close to my brow color!
This eyebrow pencil is just that, a simple pencil. The consistency is perfect, not too firm …

Eyeliner - MAKE UP FOR EVER - Aqua Eyes - Bronze 10L

Jul/06/2014

I love the bronze colour! But to be a MUFE product, and the cost,it doesn't last like it's advertised. I work 12 hrs in a hospital and before the shift is over, the eyeliner is nearly worn off. The good aspects of the product is that it glides on smoothly without tugging. This doesn't make it worth it to me to buy again. This is the only MUFE product that I have been disappointed …Read more
