I don't know why I've never written a review for this- I bought James when it was first released. I liked the look of the buy on the front (not going to lie, that's what determined the color for me) and it seemed like a really hilarious idea.I hated the taste, but loved the texture, lastability, and color.

The glosses are made with hylaronic acid, which has a distinct …

Eyeliner - Stila - Barbie Loves Stila Smudgepot - Little Black Dress (2009)

My initial reaction upon looking at LBD in the pot was that it was nothing special. In the pot it looks like a boring black/deep purple, with some slight purple and pink shimmer.
I had initially stopped at Sephora only to pick it up, but upon seeing it was put off. Was this color really that great?
I decided to try it anyway, and now I'm really glad I did!

Let me start …

Eye Shadow - Urban Decay - Eyeshadow - X

X is a peach shimmer shadow with a light pink duochrome. Overall it's very nicely pigmented, soft, and the color is gorgeous.

The peach seems perfect for bringing out blue or hazel eyes, though it looks fine on my brown ones as well. It brightens the area, and isn't shimmery or peachy enough to look over the top.

I love it as my go-to shadow for a quick wash of …

I ended up buying this palette for sale on BeautyCrunch on a whim. I needed a product to bring the purchase up to $50 and this was cheap and I had no colors exactly like it.

I'm going to describe the colors as they would show up on fair skin tones, because on darker complexions all but one will show up chalky. The colors: a light pink, mainly used as an all-over base, or a …

Surprisingly enough, this turned out to be my HG of blushes.
I was lucky enough to RIS, and wasn't expecting much from it, since I hate Orgasm with a passion.... however, I was pleasantly surprised with this. The color hows up as a bright pink on me (Similar to Chanel EURO Narcisse and Cargo Catalina) and the glitter isn't visible at all, though I do pat the brush off before …

Sunscreen - SHISEIDO - Ultimate Sun Protection Cream SPF 55 PA+++ [DISCONTINUED]

4.0

Dec/13/2008

I've finally found my HG primer and SS.

I've tried pretty much every major SS out there, and I've found that they each have their own problems.
My skin is very dry, so I wear a dimethicone-based moisturizer underneath and use a teaspoon amount of this on my face and have minimal drying throughout the day.

The major reason I love this SS though is because …

Out of all of my recent purchases, this is my favorite.
You get three full-size products (Highlighter, blush, lipgloss), each in colors that should fit both warm and cool tones, and each with buildable color.

I've only given it four lippies because I feel that a lip brush, or even a place to put one in the palette, would have been a very nice addition. The lipgloss is very …

Treatments (Eye) - Murad - Essential-C Eye Cream SPF 15 PA

Nov/01/2008

I've gone back and forth between this product and another, but recently have decided to exclusively use this one since I'm currently on a retinoid.
I apply it lightly near the orbital bone.
If you incorrectly apply it directly around your eye its going to sting, since it will naturally migrate up, into your eye and it's got sunscreen in it.
The consistency is a bit …

Eyeliner - GUERLAIN - Loose Kohl in Noir

My HG liner.
I ususally don't like to tightline because nothing stays in me. Makeup Forever's Aquaeyes, UD's 24/7 liner... Nothing stays.... That was until I found this little gem.

I apply it using the Eastern Method, which I was able to master on my first try (And I'm usually pretty clumsy). It takes less time than with a pencil or a brush and goes on …

Eyeliner - MAC Cosmetics - Pearlglide Eye Liner in Wolf

Oct/11/2008

I wanted to love this liner as my HG, I really did.... But I can't. The color is a nice gray and has a small amount of gold glitter in it. I say glitter instead of shimmer because it's possible for the glitter to fall, as it did on me within minuted of applying it. The color didn't show up much on my waterline either, and migrated down to my lashes within an hour.
Luckily the …
