This is going to be a comparison review between the oil-free and the regular TM. I purchased the original LM tinted moisturizer in Nude, after returning the oil-free version. I love the original version SO much more.

At the time that I purchased the oil-free TM, I reasoned that it would be better for summer wear. However, the texture of it is thick and is a little hard to spread …

Crème - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Tech Foundation

Dec/04/2008

I purchased this because I was looking for a foundation option for when I need more coverage and staying power then my mineral loose powder makeup can provide (I have been using Laura Mercier’s mineral foundation). I have used this MAC foundation several times and find it to be okay to pretty good, but nothing to jump on a trampoline for =). I am not used to using cream or liquid foundations …Read more

Being that I had such a positive experience with BE’s All Over Face Color in Warmth, and being new to BE, I decided to try this, since I was in the market for a finishing powder. (I am really behind and missed the train when everyone jumped on the BE wagon-and am just starting to experiment). This was not a winner, however. Despite what some others have experienced with it being translucent and …Read more

May I just say-This looks ridiculously flattering on me! I exclaim that with such enthusiasm because it is hard to find products that make me feel elated these days. I probably never would of tried this on my own because I already have a couple of bronzers that I am happy with, and have been turned off w/ the large numbers of negative reviews I’ve read on BE products. I had a co-worker apply …Read more

Bronzers - benefit Cosmetics - HOOLA

Dec/04/2008

I cannot believe I haven’t reviewed this yet! When I first used this, I pretty much detested it to the fullest degree. I just felt it looked too dark and muddy. It wasn’t very forgiving. I have become more inept in the art of makeup brushes and how to apply makeup, and have come to really like this contouring wonder. As seen in my Benefit Dandelion beauty powder review, I realized when I use …Read more

Blush - Everyday Minerals - Waffle Cone

So, I was so disappointed in all of the Everyday Minerals blushes, except for this one, which I use as a bronzer. Don't get me wrong, the colors and finishes are gorgeous, but I am highly allergic to all of them, EXCEPT for waffle cone. The others burned like hell and left a rash that EACH took a week to get rid of. I have not a clue why this is.
As far as Waffle Cone, I first got the …

Nov/26/2008

So, I purchased this at Sephora after spraying it on a fragrance card, and thinking "Wow, this smells a lot like Jessica McClintock's original fragrance, but more complex." It is a very feminine intoxicating floral on the fragrance card. The bottle and the engraved cap are absolutely amazing, but it is the heaviest and clunkiest packaging (I dropped the metal cap sevaral times and …Read more

So, I recently added yet another fragrance to my collection, as it was a way for me to treat myself for my birthday...and what a treat this ended up being! This is like having my own Secret Garden, which is one of my favorite classic books/movie from my childhood.
I have to add, that one of my male co-workers followed me around all day because he was so obsessed w/ this, and is now buying …

Eye Shadow - Bobbi Brown - Long Wear Cream

Oct/18/2008

I just had to share my experience w/ these cream eye shadows w/ all of you, as I find them to be an AMAZING product. My skin is something like a conundrum, as it is very sensitive and can be dry, but my eyelids are extremely oily. I thought I had found god when I discovered UD primer potion, as it was the first time I could wear eye makeup w/ out it melting all around my eyes within a mere …Read more
