Makeup Brushes - Stila - #24a Powder/Cheek Color Brush

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/12/2010

I purchased this brush based on all the positive reviews I read on MUA as well as on the internet regarding the Stila #24 Double-Sided Illuminating Powder Brush – and I was not disappointed with my purchase because this brush is everything I thought it would be and more. This brush is soft, dense & flexible (without being flimsy) and it picks up just the right amount of product and disperses …Read more

Cleansers - Basis - So Refreshing Cloths

Created with Sketch.

Oct/17/2010

These are wonderful cleansing cloths. These cloths are soft; they remove all my makeup (including my waterproof eyeliner and mascara) with ease; they do not leave a white cast or film on my skin; they have a light refreshing scent; and after using this product my skin feels clean, refreshed and lightly moisturized. The best thing about these cloths is that they are easy to transport since they …Read more

Eyeliner - Coastal Scents - gel eyeliner

I bought this gel liner in TruBlack in mid 2009 so it has been sitting around in my backup MU stash for over year before I tried it and to my dismay, it was dried out and extremely flakey. I was in the process of writing a bad review of this product a couple of weeks ago but...but...but…because of the beauty of MUA, I read taylorlizette's review of this product and presto-changeo this gel …Read more

Lips - COVERGIRL - TruShine Lipstick [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/10/2010

I can not believe that CoverGirl discontinued these lipsticks!!! I can not believe it!!! Why is it that I have a knack for falling in love with MU products that are soon discontinued after I find them? Why? UGH!!! The funny thing is that I have never liked any CoverGirl lip colors or any of their MU products honestly, but after reading the MUA reviews on TruShine Lipsticks a couple of years …Read more

Lip Liners - NYX Professional Makeup - Jumbo Lip Pencil - Soft Fuschia 721

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/06/2010

NYX Jumbo Lip Pencil in Soft Fuchsia (JPL721) is a beautiful mauvey pink color which on my pigmented lips comes off as a nudey-pink color, and IMO is the lip pencil equivalent to NYX’s Round Lipstick in Thalia (which is one of my favorite NYX lipsticks). The NYX Jumbo Lip Pencils are extremely creamy, hence they glide onto your lips; the pigmentation is quite good & they are long lasting to …Read more

Oct/06/2010

NYX Jumbo Lip Pencil in Coffee (JPL717) is a creamy glossy taupey brown (with some rose undertones…maybe??? – it is a very unique color) and is my favorite brown-based lip pencil in my MU collection. The NYX Jumbo Lip Pencils are extremely creamy, hence they glide onto your lips; the pigmentation is quite good & they are long lasting to say the least; they have a pretty good color selection; …Read more

Oct/06/2010

NYX Jumbo Lip Pencil in Hera (JPL722) is a soft pink raspberry color with a slight frosty sheen and is an excellent lip pencil paired with berry, dark pink and/or light plum lip colors. The NYX Jumbo Lip Pencils are extremely creamy, hence they glide onto your lips; the pigmentation is quite good & they are long lasting to say the least; they have a pretty good color selection; and are quite …Read more

Lip Liners - NYX Professional Makeup - Jumbo Lip Pencil - Copper Pink 713

Sep/25/2010

NYX Jumbo Lip Pencil in Cooper is a beautiful true coppery frost lip liner pencil. As a WOC, I have difficulty wearing nude lipsticks because they make my lips look ashy (for lack of better way to explain it), thus, I love to pair this pencil with nudish brown lipsticks to give the lippie some oomph, thus making the lipstick wearable. I also love lining and filing my lips with this pencil color …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Unlisted Brand - Loew Cornell Brush Cleaning Jar

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/23/2010

This brush cleaning jar has revolutionized how I clean my MU brushes as well as being a huge time saver. When I do the bi-weekly deep cleaning of my 25+ MU brushes, it usually takes me about 40-55 minutes by hand; however, since using this jar, the time I spend deep cleaning my MU brushes has been reduced by half and my MU brushes are thoroughly cleaned with little effort on my part. I also use this jar when I spot clean my MU brushes during the week and I have noticed that I use a lot less brush cleaner, thus this gem of a jar is saving me money, product and time. By the way, after purchasing my brush cleaning jar, I saw a YT video on how to make your own - and I would have made my own if I had seen this video first, C'est la vie, but I am including the link just in case …Read more

Eye Shadow - Ben Nye - Rich Suede

Sep/22/2010

Rich Suede is a beautiful rich (and I do mean rich) warm medium matte taupey brown color and I hope every makeup wearer has a similar color in their makeup collection. The texture of this eyeshadow is so soft and smooth it reminds of the Chanel eyeshadows that I used to own. This eyeshadow has become my go-to dark brown eyeshadow that I use to darken my outer V and as a contour color. This is …Read more
