Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Powder Blush - Blushbaby

I had high hopes after reading great reviews especially for ladies with light olive skin like mine. Let me tell you, I am returning this. It just looks like mud on me. I tried different brushes, a lighter hand, a heavier hand. It was just eww. Like I didn't know how to pick or use blush. I tried Mocha. That is gorgeous, heaven. I think there is something in the undertone that didn't go …Read more

Concealers - Sephora Collection - 8 HR Wear Perfect Cover Concealer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/31/2013

This product is indeed meant to replace Sephora's Perfecting Cover Concealer, now discontinued. I picked up the 8 HR Wear Perfect Cover to replace and love it for a variety of reasons. First the packaging is small but solid, taking up little space in my makeup bag. Colorwise, I managed to find a great shade, a perfect match for my light olive skin - medium shade 25. It has a creamy …Read more

Top/Base Coats - China Glaze - Fast Forward Top Coat

5.0

Sep/25/2011

I always thought base coats were close to useless because nothing I've tried - Sally Hansen, etc - really seemed to make a difference. I bought this after reading the reviews on here and am now devoted for life to this product! It really DOES make nail polish last longer and prevents chipping and flaking. This, along with Seche Vite top coat, are indispensable to my nail polish …Read more

This is the current queen of 'work appropriate' in my nail polish collection. It really goes with almost everything. It goes on smooth and rich and is long lasting. I use it with China Glaze base coat and Seche Vite top coat. Definite repurchase!

Lipstick - Sephora Collection - Rouge Cream Lipstick

I have this in Bewitched R24, a cool purple grape. I have light olive skin tone and it looks great. A nice bold departure from reds and brown. Very nice texture and staying power. Definitely something to try in whatever shade the next time you are at Sephora. Only $12 bucks which beats buying lipstick at the drugstore that it can't even swatch beforehand.

Other - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Zinc

If you have struggled to manage acne, you should try zinc. I've had acne my whole adult life and this is the product that has given me clear skin and ended my reliance on products such a Neutrogena On-the-Spot. This decreases oiliness, GREATLY reduces blackhead, and has totally eliminated my acne. I take 50 mg every night after dinner. I started at the beginning of this and saw results …Read more

Polishes - FingerPaints - Blank Canvas Cream

Apr/03/2010

I bought this as I've been on a quest to find a dupe for my love - Sally Hansen Pure Putty. If you love the SH, you will probably love this, even though it is not a dupe. The SH is more of a greyed out pink. (sigh)

I love that this is a pale color, but applies solidly, so two coats is plenty to get the bottle color.

This is classic and pretty and I can see this …

Polishes - FingerPaints - Putty in My Hands

Created with Sketch.

Apr/03/2010

I'm so sorry to see bad reviews for this because I love this and can see it's going to become on of those work-appropriate staples. There's been a lot of talk about mannequin hands lately. If you are olive skinned or medium toned skin color, this may be the polish to achieve that look for you.

I have light olive skin and it looks lovely on my hands, not too peachy not …

Nails - Orly - Nail Rescue

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/02/2010

This product really works well at holding together split or broken nails and lasts through several polish changes if you use a non-acetone remover. When it's time to remove it, use an acetone based remover.

I rated this a three because the glue is clumpy and hard to work with and there is a learning curve if you simply rely on the printed directions. The powder can be messy to …

Lip Gloss - Victoria's Secret - Beauty Rush Cocoalicious

Mar/04/2010

As people have mentioned, this is a warm bronze-brown color with some shimmer (not glittery). It looks great with my olive skin tone, but also is favorite of my cool toned, light skinned blond friend. The color enhances a nude lip and is very work-appropriate. I tend to use this several times a week and have been through at least two tubes. The packaging is a bit cheesy and you do need to …Read more
