I purchased and used this product specifically to try for LOWLIGHTS in my hair, not all over colour. I thought I would share my experience in case anyone was thinking of trying the same thing. I used 6WN - light chocolate brown. My natural colour is light brown mousey on the warm side, with some silvery grey. I don't do all over colour - in the salon I get highlights/lowlights. I got this …Read more

Blush - Laura Mercier - Bonne Mine

This is a palette of cream blushes, meant to be applied with fingers. I just received this from Sephora; it appears to be a limited edition, and so far exclusive to Sephora. I hope this product is so successful that LM decides to make it a permanent item in the collection, because I love it and I think it will have huge appeal!

The idea of this product, according to the packaging, is …

Concealers - benefit Cosmetics - confessions of a concealaholic

Yep, this is a good one! It is so handy to have all the concealer items I like to use together in one kit. Having Boi-ing 01 and 02 shades together means easy custom blending for many skin tones. I have Eye Bright and Lemon Aid on their own, but rarely bother using them because they aren't handy in my drawer... now with this kit, they're right there for me... and I do love Lemon Aid for …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - NARS Cosmetics - SHARPENER

Created with Sketch.

Dec/16/2009

Finally I have found a sharpener that produces a "just-out-of-the-box" point on all my pencils! I have destroyed so many pencils trying to get a good tip - you know how you over-sharpen just a tiny bit, and then a whole chunk of pencil falls off, and you have to start again.. and then there is no more pencil left...? Well, NO MORE! Everyone needs one of these. Even if it is a bit …Read more

Lip Treatments - Bourjois - Baume de Nuit Night Lip Balm [DISCONTINUED]

May/28/2008

I've re-read the reviews here and I'm thinking I need to give this balm a better try. I like it, but that's it. I still love my Smith's Strawberry balm, and I find I am still preferring the Smith's to this one. That's why I'm only giving this three lippies for now. But, in the overall world of balms, Baume de Nuit is definitely one of the better ones. Did anyone …Read more

Blush - benefit Cosmetics - Posietint

Ah yes... a cheek tint for the pale-skinned girls... this is simply lovely in my opinion. It doesn't dry as quickly as original Benetint, so you have a couple more seconds to blend it. It seems to build up in colour nicely, so you can start with a tiny bit and add more if need be. It's fantastic on my lips, it gives them a natural-yet-pink stain, and with some Smith's Strawberry …Read more

May/27/2008

I'm likin' this! It's a perfect match for my pale winter skin, and it is a bit lighter than my summer skin.. but that doesn't matter because it blends perfectly. It has a nice amount of coverage in my opinion - not a lot, just enough to soften out the redness on my face (perfect!). I also find that this provides some moisture as well (as opposed to other "tinted …Read more

Lip Treatments - Smith's Rosebud Salve - Brambleberry Rose lip balm

May/27/2008

I won't buy this again (I don't think..?), but only because I prefer the strawberry balm to this one. All the Smith's balms are a great value considering the size of the tin they come in, and all are nice, natural, effective balms (I've tried them all). I do like this balm. I think it just comes down to whether you prefer the waxy texture of the strawberry balm, or the …Read more

Lip Treatments - Rosebud Perfume Co. - Strawberry Lip Balm

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/27/2008

This is my absolute favourite of the Smith's balms, and my overall HG lipbalm as well. I prefer the more "waxy" consistency of the strawberry balm, over the "vaseline-y" feel of the original balm and also the new Brambleberry balm. The strawberry balm has more staying power, and with it being a bit thicker in texture I find that it stays put and doesn't …Read more

Mascara - CLINIQUE - Lash Power Mascara

For me, this is the mascara I have been waiting for, because all I want is a fine, "tinted" look to my lashes, not a dramatic and bold look. I loved Revlon's Lash Tint, so naturally they discontinued that ;) - this mascara reminds of that a bit. It hasn't flaked off for me at all, and I find it comes off alright using Cetaphil. I find that I am able to coat every little lash …Read more
