Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Zen

One of my very favorite blushes! I tend towards colors that have a slightly brown or orange tone, and this fits in perfectly. I like to apply this as any other blush, on the apples of the cheeks sweeping up towards the temples, and then apply just a bit more at the temples besides. The dusty pink-orange undertone makes it work well as blush... it also has a bit of brown, but it's not …Read more

I've gone through one full bottle of this and it's become part of my daily routine - I can't go without it! I'm in my 30s, with skin that's somewhat sensitive, oily t zone with enlarged pores on and around my nose, no blackheads & no acne problems other than a small spot now and again. I started using this and a week later noticed that my skin looked a little …Read more

Lipstick - NYX Professional Makeup - Matte Lipstick - Sierra

Apr/01/2013

Great, inexpensive lipstick. Pretty creamy for a matte, and not the most long-lasting, but it faded evenly after about 5 hours (and a can of coke) and left a touch of pretty, pinkish stain. Full-on, this is a soft orangey-pink on me, kind of like a faded terracotta but a bit more bright than my usual MLBB colors. Good for work since sometimes I want a touch of color, but not necessarily a vibrant …Read more

BB Cream - Tarte Cosmetics - BB Tinted Treatment Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 30

Feb/18/2013

This is a great all-in-one product for a minimalist such as myself. I have slight redness on and around my nose and chin, and prefer to use products with lighter coverage and only where needed, to even things out a bit but not necessarily create a flawless 'canvas'. I'm pleased to report that the medium shade covers well (better than you'd expect from a tinted moisturizer …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Mountain Ocean - Skin Trip Coconut Moisturizer

May/31/2012

This stuff rocks as a light body lotion. I don't often apply lotion except for on my hands (and sunscreen of course), but I like keeping this around to occasionally use on my legs after shaving. I live in a hot humid climate so thick, heavily scented products are not appealing to me. Skin Trip has a very loose/liquidy texture, glides right on and absorbs fast, and the smell is very summer-y …Read more

Just like everyone sez, this is a pale, sheer, shimmery lime green but at certain angles morphs to a peachy-pink. I'm wearing two coats over a sheer nude base, it's such a fun and airy warm weather color. Haven't tried this over a darker color yet, but definitely will - and I think it would look especially fantastic over pink. This color is currently discontinued and I bought mine …Read more

Treatments - Deborah Lippmann - Cuticle Remover

Mar/06/2012

This is the first cuticle remover product I have tried. I have read about several less expensive drugstore and discount beauty brands also being extremely effective, yet also potentially over-drying. I wanted to start out with something a little more gentle so chose this first.


I use it maybe 2-3x a week, as a first step to clean up my bare nails/cuticles before putting on a new …

Gels/ Soaps - Neutrogena - Rainbath Refreshing Shower & Bath Gel

Mar/06/2012

Love the 'retro', fresh smell of this body wash. I say retro because my family used Rain Bath for a short time in when I was growing up, waaay back in the early 80s. This smell makes me think of pine woods, warm clean skin and weirdly, Christmastime (though I think the latter is more associated with a memory of mine than with the actual scent). Takes me back to a time when bath products …Read more

Polishes - Essie - Main Squeeze

Feb/29/2012

I'm loving this subtle gray-purple polish. The sheerness doesn't bother me a bit and it applied very smoothly with no streaks or brushstroke marks - two coats was just enough to boost the shimmer and impart a milky not-quite-opaque translucency. In low light this is a pale fog gray but it has just a hint of very fine purple/blue flash in the light. A perfect color for winter and early …Read more

EDIT: I initially gave this a ho-hum review as a cuticle moisturizer, preferring Qtica Intense Cuticle Repair instead. I'm upping my review from 3 to 4 lippies because I gave it a second shot, and really like it!


Pros: Cheap, readily available at drugstores, no scent, no crazy skin reactions (not that I expected to have any), one tube will go a long way, moisturizes like …
