Lotions/ Creams - AmLactin - Alpha-Hydroxy Therapy Moisturizing Body Lotion

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/29/2014

Amlactin is one of those rare gems you find at the drugstore. I am a body lotion freak and have used many brands at a variety of price points. Yes Amlactin is a bit pricey compared to other drugstore brands, however the quality is right up there with some Rx brand lotions. You cannot compare the outcome that this product produces on your skin to other drugstore brands. This is frequently …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Paint Pot - Groundwork

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/16/2013

Groundwork was a surprise love for me. I ordered online - not sure of what the outcome would be. It's a lovely basic and can be worn alone or as a base with eyeshadow over. I use a brush to apply and it goes on smoothly. Alone it's a nice subtle wash of color and provides a polish... with eyeshadow it can add dimension. I thought it would be darker than it is. On me it's …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Paint Pot - Indianwood

3.0

Oct/16/2013

Indianwood is a nice gold/rose-gold color. In the pot I thought it would be too glitzy but it ends up being okay on. With my blue eyes it's a nice touch but I am certain there are cheaper options out there - especially for how often I would be choosing to wear this. This is not an everyday wear to me. It will be nice with some Fall clothing and night wear. I would not repurchase this …Read more

Eye Shadow - Laura Mercier - Caviar Stick Eye Color - Amethyst

A beautiful color. I am not big on shimmer or frost although this is certainly a gleam! I swipe it across upper and lower lids in a band and it's so pretty. Not crazy, not over the top; more like fresh and glowy. It does not come off purple or lilac (on me) - more taupe with a touch of rose mixed in... I apply after a primer and usually have subtle other eyeshadow with it but it …Read more

Are you kidding - this product is amazing. I've used the high end and the 'middle end' for so long and then got one of these babies and couldn't believe it. It is the mascara of queens. I'm hitting up the k-mart for what is left in stock. It took me a few months to get the one I have. $2.99. I will buy this again & again. Lasts all day - makes my lashes …Read more

Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Powder Blush - Coppertone

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/06/2013

Coppertone was chosen for me by a male makeup artist at an MAC store in Manhattan. It is a deep terra cotta peach: the bigger and tad bolder sister to Gingerly. Coppertone gives a burst of color like an afternoon in the sun. I am a fair-medium tone, neutral to warm I'd say. I am on my second/third of these. My daughter took the second one I bought - she loved it too.

Treatments (Face) - Unlisted Brand - NCN Skincare GHK-Cu Copper Peptide Serum with EGF

Copper peptides as a skincare product takes time to show results. Unlike some products that work seemingly within days or overnight copper peptides are a different animal. They work slowly and require time and patience to achieve the desired outcome~~a long term, lasting positive change is seen as the skin is slowly transformed and improved.

Blush - LORAC - Powder blush in Soul

2.0

Dec/16/2012

I like the color of Soul - I chose it for that reason plus great reviews on MUA AND it was part of a really nice set of products that I wanted to try. (Sephora). The blush dropped - not on a hard surface yet the entire compressed blush disintegrated into powder - no chunks - just fell completely apart into a zillion particles - You couuld say it's more like a mineral blush now which for me …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Eye Shadow - Soba

Soba was introduced to me in Macys - NYC as a brow color and I've loved it for this ever since. Maybe I should try it on the lids next time - from what I am reading at MUA it seems to make a natural and lovely crease color.
Edited 4/2013 Soba deserves more love in the MAC world. Still wearing SOBA - good multipurpose neutral for brow and lid.
Edited 10/2013 - Love it. This …
