I find this eyelash culrler performs better than a drugstore curler but I prefer other brands.

The curl with the Kevyn Aucoin is not very attractive looking on my eyes. I much prefer the Shiseido curler and the Shu Uemura over this.

I have had my Shu Uemura one last over 7 years and my Shiseido over 5 . Both give a very lifted doll look to my lashes . I slightly prefer the …

I love this liquid lipstick in the shade perla. A lovely peach pink nude. This reminds me of MAC lipstick color in faux a little lighter in tone.

I love the formula of these lipsticks I also have baci a lilac greiged color and caramello a very pale neutral nude.

I also have a number of Kat Von D liquid lipsticks and also love those as well. The Stila formula is less drying …

I really like this bright lilac pink lipstick on my cool toned nw18 skin. The formula is very moisturizing.

I have two NYX lipsticks and my favoite way to wear Paris is mixed with Thalia it tones down Paris and turns it into the most beautiful sophisticated looking rose pink on my pigemted lips. This combo reminds me of a favoite discontinued Dior lipstick I use to have.

I …

I really like this gloss. I just stated using it and do notice a slight plumping of my lips. I have the shade 006 beige sunrise it looks really nice on my bare lips or over a nude lip color. I usually apply it on bare lips but if wearing over lipstick will apply on bare lips and add lipstick and go in with another application on top. I love this over the lipstick blankety by MAC. I plan to buy …Read more

I love this glitter eyeshadow. I have Diamond Dust and will never use any type of loose glitter again.

I do have a litttle fall out but not as much as similar products. I was using the micro fine glitter from Makeup Forever but this is so much easier to work with. My favoite way to wear this is with Nars Dragon Girl on my lips. A very striking and dramatic look for a winter evening …

This is my favorite bright pink based red of all time. The color against my NW 18 skintone gives me a Snow White apperence.

It is a little drying but nothing compared to Ruby Woo by MAC another color I love.

When this wears off I’m still left with a lovely stain.

I also love the color of Icon by Horglass the liquid lipstick and lip gloss.

My favorite highlighter that I have ever used. The color is a stunnning shell pink champagne. This looks like shimmering liquid on my skin.

This is better than any highlighter from Becca, Nars or Hourglass. This would also look lovely on more mature skin. I also use this on my eyes as a center highlight. I threw out a number of highlighters after purchasing this. I also compared …

I have the shade skinny dip a dark plum shade. I bought this to deepen a few shades in my ABH modern renaissance paletttes. That is a lovely palette but lacks a deep plum shade. This worked amazingly well for me.

This is not as pigmented as the modern renaissance colors but just adding another application builds it up nicely. I also had no kickback of powder unlike the colors in my …

I have the 9 color nude smoky palette and have been so impressed. The darker colors are pigmented and a few of the lighter shades you will need to apply a few times. One shade is a nude slightly shimmery shade and 2 others are a slight satin off white shades. The rest are medium to very dark tone shades . A few of the dark tones seem to have a very slight satin finish and the rest are matte. This …Read more

I love this foundation. I worked as a pro makeup artist for years and took a few years off . On my return I started building a new kit. I started to test out tons of new foundations and have tried hundreds in the past. This is one formula that I decided to invest in. I have shades 1,3,5,7,9 and 10. The darker shades were to ashy and lacked warmth .

This foundation is great for me . I …
