Lip Gloss - Dessert Beauty - Dessert Treats Deliciously Kissable Plumping Lip Candy in Creamsicle

Sep/04/2005

I really can't believe how terrible this is. I saw these eensy weensy little tubes for a whopping $7.99 at CVS. I thought it was way too much to pay for such a tiny amount of gloss, but I've been wanting to try the dessert line so bad that I caved. If you're looking for great tasting gloss, Bonne Bell lip smackers are honestly a better deal. That was my chief outrage. This stuff …Read more

Blush - Stila - Convertible Color Blush - Petunia

5.0

Jul/25/2005

There's no excuse for the fact that I've waited until now to write a reveiw on this. This has been my #1 favorite, hg blush for a long time. Petunia is like a fantasy color for me. I always wanted/imagined a creamy, retro hot-pink blush/lipcolor but couldn't find it anywhere until I finally found this. This is absolutely gorgeous on me anyway I use it. It looks great on lips with …Read more

Blush - Stila - Convertible Color Gerbera

I'm an absolute blush fiend, but among the many that I've tried and loved, Stila Convertible Colors are my all-time favorite. I have Petunia, Gladiola, and Gerbera. Gerbera is my second fave after Petunia. When I couldn't get to Sephora, a friend who was going offered to pick me up a couple things and this was one of them. I had been wanting it for awhile since it looked like a …Read more

Jul/25/2005

I'm glad I'm such a make-up junkie (especially for lip products) because I tried this product before some of my friends started wanting it, which enabled me to save them from a truly awful purchase. I bought this hoping for an easy, pink-tinted balm to slather on, color without the fuss of the lipstick/gloss routine. To tell you the truth, the lipstick/gloss routine is actually a lot …Read more

Lip Gloss - Cargo Cosmetics - Lipgloss Duo in San Fran

1.0

Jun/05/2005

Oh my God! I'm very surprised reading the reveiws on this gloss. Has no one (save a couple reveiwers who did) noticed how SHALLOW the tin actually is? I would NEVER EVER buy this (or anything with similarly deceptive packaging) again-SUCH a friggin' rip-off. The only way I could justify paying the $18.00 I did for this gloss was the size and depth of the tin, I thought it was a good …Read more

Blush - Cargo Cosmetics - Blush - Catalina

I HATED this blush at first. It took me a very long time to figure out how to use it but now that I have I LOVE it. You need a quality blush brush and an extremely light hand (sometimes a problem for me as I tend to be a little too liberal with blush) but once you've mastered the application this is gorgeous. I'm usually not a big fan of powder blush, my skin is dry so I like to use …Read more

Lip Gloss - Neutrogena - Moistureshine Lipgloss in Twinkle

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/06/2004

I love the moistureshine glosses (First blush and groove are my other faves-if only they made a peachy shade-I'd be in heaven). What I like particularly about this one is the fact that it appears as a frosty white in the tube-the kind that would generally make my thin, non-pigmented lips look corpse like and washed out. I was amazed when I put it on and it made my lips look plump and full …Read more

Polishes - Jane Cosmetics - Nail Color in Hot Blooded

Aug/16/2004

I cannot rave enough about this. I adore deep red for toenails and in the deep red dept. nothing rivals jane hot-blooded. I might never have discovered it if I hadn't noticed how gorgeously it complemented my very fair skinned best friend. When I saw it on her, I loved it and had to have it. Usually, when I buy something based on loving it on someone else, it's not so great on me. Not …Read more

Mascara - benefit Cosmetics - BADgal Lash

Aug/16/2004

I've read mixed reveiws on this mascara, and most of the bad ones agree with my feelings about it. Since everyone wants something different from a mascara, it's hard to give it a review that would be suited to all preferences but I've narrowed the preference thing down to two categories. There are those among us who prefer the "natural" lash look with some length and …Read more
