This blush oxidizes on my when I apply "2 coats". It turns a reddy orange on my skin (NC10) like a sun burn. I was hoping it would look closer to the color in the pan on my face but it goes reddish on my skin.

I just have one swipe/ one dusting on my skin, it's not very noticeable. I'm still trying to figure out ways to make it work for me but so far it looks …

For a girl who switches between palettes regularly, it says alot that I have been using this palette every day for 1 year. Even if I use other shadows, I still reach for this palette. The dark navy and espresso color are so pigmented, I use them as an eyeliner. The texture is very high end. I order this the same time I ordered the Lorac Pro but ended up returning the Lorac Pro because this …Read more

I love the glowy peachy pink flush it leaves on my cheeks. The high heel in the center is a brighter pink. I just twirl everything together for a perfect spring cheek pastel color. It's great for fair skin. On darker skin tones it could work as well to highligh the tops of the apples of the cheek. While it is not shimmery it leaves a glowy satin finish.
I actually like the …

While I this liner really hasn't really improved my lashes, it's a great fine tipped liner. I really like the formula, the rich black pigmentation, and the precise tip of the liner. Some liners are too stiff to work with. This liner's tip is just perfect for drawing a great cat eye. The sleek silver packaging looks high end and is convenient. The only downsides of this liner …Read more

Bottom-line: It's an ok mascara. Nothing great. It doesn't volumize as much as CG Lash Blast. This formula is supposed to have fibers in it, but the formula is exactly the same as the PF Jumbo Lash mascara (the green one). For a better fiber mascara, I prefer Falsies. I'm done with trying PF's overpriced mascaras.

Had I known about this liner I would not have purchased the NARS Rue Bonaparte liner. Rimmel's liner is a shade darker and needs to be sharpened. NARS is lighter and is a twist up. While I do prefer the NARS over Rimmel, I don't like it enough to justify the price difference. Rimmel is a close enough cheap drugstore dupe. Both are equally pigmented. Rimmel is actually a bit more …Read more

This WAS my holy nude waterproof eyeliner. but then I found the Rimmel Scandaleyes waterproof kohl kajal in 005 Nude. Rimmel is a shade darker and has to be sharpened. I prefer NARS packaging in that the liner is a twist up so never needs to be sharpened. I also prefer the lighter shade of NARS. Both last on my lower waterline. But NARS is $23 and Rimmel's is less than half the price on …Read more

It's a nice mascara, but not really the best I've tried from the drugstore in terms of volumizing. This is as if Physician's Formula tried their best at replicating CoverGirl Lash Blast. While the organic mascara is volumizing, I do get more volume with Lash Blast. I do appreciate the organic aspect of the mascara though. It is certainly pricey for a drugstore mascara though.

The color Pretty Precious - a nude pinkish beige - is an exact dupe for MAC's Lip Gelee in Resort Life in shade. Resort Life was part of MAC's Lily Pulizer collection and was later released in the Venomous Villains collection with a picture of Disney's Dr. Facilier on the tube.

I like the texture of L'Oreal better than MAC. L'Oreal's gloss goes on a …

I missed out on Barely Beige so I was really glad to see that Maybelline released another neutral shade. It is creamy, frosty, and dries fast. I use these as eyeshadow bases so I need to work fast at layering shadow on top before it sets. It is my 5th Color Tattoo, and it seems pretty creamy.
