Lipstick - NYX Professional Makeup - Slip Tease Full Color Lip Lacquer

4.0

8 months ago

I have five shades of this product--Dexter (red), Let's Get Physical (pinky brown), Sandalwood (pumpkin), Rosy Outlook (warm rose), and Strawberry Whip (mauve). They are all nice, and I like the wear and the performance. I am not huge on lip gloss since I want something opaque on my lips, so Slip Tease is a great combo of lipstick and gloss. It is very pigmented, and I can get a solid few …Read more

Lipstick - Bobbi Brown - Crushed Lip Color - Babe

4.0
Created with Sketch.

8 months ago

I got a deluxe sample of this using Sephora points recently, and it is nice. I usually prefer full-opacity lipsticks, but Babe is a nice change of pace. It is soft and semi-opaque, and it gives a nice blotted effect without looking dry or powdery. It feels nice on the lips and wears decently. As I reapply, it seems to deepen the stain on my lips, which I think is nice. I'd call it a warm …Read more

Lipstick - Sephora Collection - #LIPSTORIES Lipstick

4.0
Created with Sketch.

8 months ago

I purchased this in the shade Labyrinth City, and it is gorgeous. It is kinda of a russet-plum color, so it is perfect for fall on my skin tone. I was hesitant about trying this line given the price and the cardboard packaging, but I added one to a recent Sephora order on a whim. I am glad I did! It feels very nice on the lips, much nicer than an $8 lipstick, and it wears well. The color is …Read more

Highlighters - Stila - Heaven's Hue KITTEN

5.0
Created with Sketch.

8 months ago

I spent months swatching Stila's highlights every time I went to Ulta, but I could never manage to make myself purchase one. I kinda regret waiting so long. The packaging is nice and pretty, and the product inside is just so cool. It has that squishy, almost sponge-like texture that's fun to use. Color-wise, it is a soft champagne glow that looks wet on the skin. Some days I want a …Read more

Highlighters - theBalm Cosmetics - Cindy-Lou Manizer Highlighter Shadow & Shimmer

4.0
Created with Sketch.

8 months ago

I really do not care much for Mary-Lou, but Cindy-Lou is gorgeous on me. I am quite fair, but the peachy glow this gives is perfect on my warm skin. I was probably sucked in by the redhead on the package, to be honest, but I have a thing for peachy or pinky highlights so this was right up my alley. It is not over-the-top or blindingly metallic, but it can be built up a little bit without looking …Read more

Highlighters - L'Oreal Paris - True Match Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer

4.0
Created with Sketch.

8 months ago

I like this product, but I doubt I would repurchase it. It achieves the same finished look as mixing luminizing drops with primer on my skin, and I do like the effect, but I prefer the control of using the drops over this. I like that there is no scent and the lotion doesn't feel heavy or gritty, and the packaging is pretty decent as well. If it were more moisturizing I could skip the mixing …Read more

Highlighters - Makeup Revolution - Haunted Lights Highlighter

4.0
Created with Sketch.

8 months ago

I got this last year around Halloween, mainly due to the cool skill embossed onto the powder. It is a fun, kinda funky highlight that can still be worn during the day. I don't find it to be too over-the-top, but it is unique and interesting. On my skin, since I am fairly warm toned, it mostly looks like an ever-so-slightly greened gold. It wears nicely, as most of Revolution's …Read more

Bronzers - L'Oreal Paris - True Match Lumi Bronze It Bronzing Powder

4.0
Created with Sketch.

8 months ago

This is a very lovely, flattering bronzer. It is not matte, so if that is what you want then steer clear. It glides onto the skin and blends in nicely, and gives a polished, defined look to the face. I try to not overdo it, but with very fair skin it is easy to just go ham with bronzer. I have done that with this one as much as any other, but in general I find this one to be easier to use subtly …Read more

Palettes - PAT MCGRATH LABS - Mothership V Eyeshadow Palette - Bronze Seduction

5.0
Created with Sketch.

8 months ago

I swore I would never spend more than $100 on an eyeshadow palette, yet here I am loving the heck out of Mothership V. These are my kind of colors, so as soon as I saw it I began lemming real bad. I took the risk and ordered it the day it launched from Pat's website, and when it arrived I was blown away with the quality and the attention to detail that the brand puts into its products. I …Read more

Foundations - BECCA - Ultimate Coverage 24 - Hour Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

8 months ago

Actual rating is 4.5 lippies. I am always on the hunt for a nice foundation like so many others here. I am not super-picky, but there are certain things that are non-negotiable when it comes to foundation. I want it to wear well and not break up, I want it to cover, and I want it to match fairly well. Maybe I am a little picky. Becca's Ultimate Coverage foundation is a pretty full-coverage …Read more
