Mar/29/2018

Well I finally succumbed & had to purchase an eyeshadow palette from Pat McGrath. I saw the 6 shadow palettes @ Sephora online then decided which was for me.
I chose Subliminal Platinum Bronze 6 shadow palette of the new 3 just recently released.
I am warm toned & was hesitant to purchase a “cool” palette as so many bloggers labeled this as “cool” but were changing their minds …

Decided to give this one a try as I got color matched and a sample a few weeks back. Bought Bisque 250W and it is a perfect match with my NW20-25 skin tone.
I really love this foundation. It is easy to apply either using a BB, foundation brush or fingertips (I prefer a brush to apply to your face, apply where needed, then blend). It gives you plenty of time to blend without becoming …

I expected way more from this product. I have mature combo oily skin, less oily than I used to be. This formula provides minimal Coverage- not even close to full. It actually reminds me of a BB, it's so minimal. By the end of 4 hrs any coverage you managed to apply is gone. No longevity. At the end of the day when you take your foundation off there is barely nothing to remove.
The …

I was at Ulta checking out the Nars TM and the UD rep asked to show me this product. And while the color she chose, medium light, was perfect, that's about the only good thing about this product. It slides off my face about 2 hours after applying it, both with & without using a primer. It provides some coverage but fades in about an hour, & as stated above, gone in 2 hours. My face …Read more

I have never tried a Bobbi Brown mascara but received a sample of this and was quite pleased with the results.
It is a deep black color, easy to apply and is a nice mascara to use everyday for work. The wand allows you to apply the product evenly and the coverage is good. It costs every lash easily as well. I had no clumping on application and no smudging throughout the day.
It …

Bought this at Walgreens on a whim in my search to find the perfect black liquid eyeliner. This product is absolutely wonderful. The applicator is shaped where you can apply a thick line or use the side angle for a thinner line application. I am so impressed! The black color is a dark true black, the formula dries pretty quickly and it stays all day. I am happy to see Max Factor back in the US as …Read more

Oct/01/2016

My first foray into TF fragrance and I am super disappointed with this perfume. The top notes are a sickly gardenia/tuberose, Cyprus or green scent and suntan lotion smell which is overwhelmingly sweet & sickening (no error here in saying "sickening" twice, btw). It dries down to a vanilla scent after about 2 long hours, & totally disappeared on my skin by the fourth hour …Read more

This is an EyeCon 7 shadow palette exclusive to Neiman Marcus & my first MJ eyeshadow product. Seven really good quality shadows -all apply well, are easy to blend and stay true to color all day on my lids (using a primer). 1 or 2 are a bit powdery but it's not a problem; maybe slight fall out but minimal and no problem. There is a matte beige, a shimmery gold, a glittery brown, a matte …Read more

This scent is intoxicating in such a good way. In envelopes my entire home in such a cozy, soft and warm scent. I am in love with this candle. Great throw. It's just amazing. I am not good at differentiating fragrance notes, but this is seriously awesome. I've read the notes and have never ever had the pleasure of this scent anywhere.
Pretty expensive at $62 a candle,but I will …

This eyeliner is a great deep black, which is great but it smudges quickly & wears off by the end of the day. Plus be careful that the product doesn't fall out of the pencil as that has happened twice for me. Not impressed with it. I have two more MJ eyeliners and they are the same performance wise. Can't really do a great precision line either. I will stick to my Armani and UD 24/7 …Read more
