Polishes - Unlisted Brand - PIXEL - Till I'm Blue Over You

1.0

Jul/13/2012

This polish is an absolute shame. In the bottle it's a vibrant disco blue.... but, four coats and it's so sheer I can see the pink of my nail bed. I topped it with two coats of a blue glitter by Sally Girl. My hubby loves the look and I do too. But I will replace PIXEL with something opaque.

Polishes - OPI - Your Web or Mine?

Your Web or Mine? is a classic pink...nice enough but not exceptional. Compared to Just Spotted the Lizard (also in OPI's Spiderman collection) Your Web or Mine? is dull and out of place. Pink and Spiderman just don't go together.

Just Spotted the Lizard is intriguing and beautiful. In direct sunlight it reads pure gold, but absent of light, it reads a dark candy green.

Moisturizers - Clean & Clear - morning glow spf 15

This moisturizer is cheap, you get a great quantity and the dispenser pump is terrific. However, this has made my skin break out. We're talking 9th grade zits. This has been my only change in skincare, so I know it's attributable to this product. I don't mind the sparkles b/c it gives me a nice subtle glow. But the resurgence in acne is awful.Will not repurchase and definitely do …Read more

Eye Shadow - MILANI - True Romance

This LE e/s palette consists of three highly pigmented shades. What I look for in either HE or LE products is uniqueness. If a HE or LE product is something super dupable...then what's the point? The highlight shade is an off white that pulls gray. This color doesn't really work with my skin tone (fair w/yellow undertones), but I can absolutely see it working for someone with fair/cool …Read more

Fragrances - Atelier Cologne - Orange Sanguine

Orange Sanguine is exactly as you would imagine...orange with a deep anchor of sandalwood. Usually I'm against smelling like fruit or food, but this citrus scent has a plethora of undertones that keep it from being food-ish. I would have given 5 lippies and marked for repurchase except that wear time is short. You splash Orange Sanguine on and it quickly disappears. I would absolutely love …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Urban Decay - All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray

Apr/21/2012

I live in a very humid climate and when it's summertime and everything is in full steam bath mode it's really hard to get my makeup to stay in place and continue to look freshly applied. UD's All Nighter is definitely helpful. I've tried different methods of applying it, but what seems to work best for me is post primer, after all creams have been applied and then a final …Read more

Eye Shadow - wet n wild - Color Icon Eyeshadow Quad - Silent Treatment

Apr/18/2012

Silent Treatment is a palette that I'm likely to repurchase before I hit pan (after Jordana discontinued Lovely I got nervous and don't want to lose another favorite). Each shadow is creamy and easy to apply. The eyelid shade is a gorgeous taupe that reads silver/purple on my lids. I also really enjoy the highlight color which is a soft pink/peach. The crease shade is too dark for the …Read more

Lips - Tarte Cosmetics - Lipsurgence Natural Lip Tint in Peaceful

Apr/18/2012

This terrific lip gel is a sheer nude that works well with dramatic eyes. I love how the peppermint cools my lips, but doesn't smell candy-ish. Peaceful also makes my lips feel super smooth without being slick. My only dislike is the product packaging...I've already nicked the lipstick while uncapping/recapping it. All in all, a great treat from Tarte.

Moisturizers - VICHY - LiftActiv with Rhamnose 5% Night

I'm delighted with the scent and texture of this night moisturizer. The cream is very thick and like all Vichy products the fragrance is wonderful. I took one lippie b/c the product is supposed to minimize wrinkles (nope). I also took a lippie b/c the cream does have a burning sensation (some nights more intense than others).
