I've been thinking about trying an orange lipstick for awhile now but since I'm NW20 and super cool toned I was apprehensive. I ended up picking this lipstick up at target tonight on a whim. I wasn't expecting much but I was pleasantly surprise.

Blush - Physicians Formula - Organic wear Blush - Blushing Organics

May/06/2014

I picked up this blush at my local dollar store. I figured I'd give it try since Physician's Formula is pretty pricey drugstore brand. First off the scent is pretty strange. It smells kind of plasticy and/or chalky. The first time I swatched it I literally picked up zero product on my finger. The brush it came with is horrible and scratchy so I chucked that right off the bat. I …Read more

I've been using this powder since I was in high school. A few years ago I started using several other highend powders and ditched my covergirl. Recently times have been tough and I'm on a tight budget. I decided to reviisted Covergirl's pressed powders. It's exactly how I remembered it. It's a nice powder with good coverage that I use to set my foundation. It has good …Read more

Last year I bought the evercreme and hated it. Mostly because it gave me weird bumps on my scalp and I couldn't stand the smell. I was hoping for different results from this cleansing conditioner. Oh how wrong I was. I enjoyed the smell of this product better. I love floral scents. My hair never felt "clean" after washing it and that was okay. It was still a nice texture for up dos …Read more

I bought this blush in posie glow. It'a a pretty color but I didn't really expect much from it. I usually only use matte blushes and bronzers. I'm very fair and the blush is beautiful on my skin. I also really like it over MUFE HD blush in #4 walk of shame. They compliment each other beautifully. The bronzer is sheer and good for my coloring. Anything too dark looks garish on me …Read more

I was really surprised by this shampoo. A house guest had left it at my house and couldn't take it back to Canada with her. I have fine, color treated, 2a (sometimes curlier depending on the weather), thin hair. I usually use moisturizing products because my hair is pretty damaged. I expected this shampoo to strip my hair but it didn't! My hair is shiny and bouncy. The matching …Read more

I usually use MUFE Face and Body but times are tough and I figured for a few dollars I could try something new. At first I was very impressed with this foundation. I mixed it with some moisturizer and it looked great on my skin. All was well until this morning. I now have a cute rash on my chin. This foundation is going in the trash. The packaging isn't great. There isn't a pump and …Read more

I really like this liquid liner. I only own one shade, Perversion. I was unsure about the brush applicator as I had only used a sponge tip in the past but this product has made me a convert. I use a primer underneath this eyeliner and set it with a matte eyeshadow (UD Blackout). I have no problem with flaking. It lasts all day/night. It's a little pricey but a great liquid liner!

Lipstick - e.l.f. Cosmetics - Mineral Lipstick in Runway Pink

Oct/04/2012

I like this lipstick it's a nice muted light pink. It's light but still "natural" looking. I like to use it on moisturized lips and layering a MAC tendertone on top of it (usually tread gently). Otherwise it can be a little chalky. The wear time is 2-3 hours which isn't bad. It's a nice lipstick especially for 5 dollars.

I've had all kinds of problems trying to find the perfect nude lipstick. Usually they are either too light and corpse like or too brown. This is the perfect shade of pink with a hint brown. It's a mlbb for me. It's not too dark for my fair skin and not concealer light. I love it. As for the formula it's nice and glossy, definitely not matte like some reviews are saying …Read more
