Jun/23/2014

I just recently ordered and tried this indie lipstick company. Cool and unique colours at a decent price, $12.00 Cdn
The Proprietress, Kim is lovely and wrote me to apologise for the delay, included an FYI about Carmine and added some extra goodies.
Now for the lipsticks themselves:
Texture: smooth and creamy. Some have a metallic finish, whist others are matte. They are opaque …

Liquid - L'Oreal Paris - Magic Nude Liquid Powder [DISCONTINUED]

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/19/2013

Since L'Oreal owns Armani, this is their mass version of the highly touted maestro foundation. Magic nude is very thin liquid and it is sheer to light coverage. It is not meant to cover but only to even out skin. The look is quite natural and it has a silky feeling. I hate that there isn't a pump but the glass bottle is nice. I am a NC20 and I purchased nude beige; however I think …Read more

Crème - REVLON - ColorStay Whipped Crème Makeup

4.0

Mar/23/2013

I bought this on a whim and at the time, I didn't hear a peep about this foundation. I am glad I made my own conclusions about it. First, I am an NC 20 and 150 buff was too light and gave my skin a grey hue, so I went to the 200 level. Very strange as I am always in the 100 levels, but it is a good match. The texture as it suggests is whipped and is smooth like butter. This makes my skin …Read more

This is part of the Summer Limited Edition Hey Sailor collection. Lovely nude/champagne with some shimmer (not glitter). Looks great on it's own with some mascara or put it with Wedge, Patina, Brun, All that Glitters.... you name it. Easy to blend, wear and pair.

Mascara - MAC Cosmetics - Opulash Optimum Black mascara

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/16/2012

I have to say I have tried so many mascaras and while they pretty much darken my lashes and volumize, many of them end up being smudged in a couple of hours. Welcome Opulash. I believe it is the kaolin clay that helps it from ending up under my eyes. It keeps my long lashes curled and soft without flakes. Mind you, it is a drier formulation and a volumizing one too, therefore it will dry out …Read more

Liquid - REVLON - ColorStay Makeup [Reformulated Early 2013]

3.0

Feb/21/2012

I will admit to being a foundation snob and a "collector" of sorts. Therefore I do not own many mass foundations. I heard great reviews regarding this foundation, but I was somewhat disappointed. I have the normal/dry formulation. I didn't like the finish nor the coverage. The glass bottle without a pump drives my OCD (not really) into overdrive. I think for someone with slight …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Pigment in Naked

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/20/2012

Naked is hard to catch the eye. Understandably so, it isn't flashy nor trashy. I use it during the day as a nice natural look. It can also been used a a lovely highlighter under the brow or on the cheekbone. I believe I read that someone used MAC's lipglass with it and created a beautiful nude lipgloss......haven't tried that one. A great staple for a multitude of looks. Less …Read more

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Blush - Deep Throat

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/20/2012

Ok so I haven't jump on the Orgasm bandwagon, way too glittery and shimmery. Instead Deep Throat is its classically- tailored -dressed cousin from Boston. Sophisticated, very pretty, natural, and slightly peachy- pink and does what blush should do. Does not oxidize, yes I am talking to you MAC blushes and lasts on the cheek. I worked a 16 hour day recently, whilst it was faded by the end of …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Cremesheen - Double Spin

This Creamsheen is part of the Holiday collection. A very light pinky, mauve colour that really lightens the lips. It isn't for everyone as it can make one looked washed out. I have worn it on its own, but I will have to try in overtop of other colours to get its full effect. Interesting colour and lovely feeling on the lips

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Soft Sable

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/16/2011

I was drawn to this collection and this colour. Actually, the lipsticks for this Holiday collection are lovely. This particular colour reminds me of Platinum Lamé by Revlon. Soft sable is a brown, but with hints of purple that make it wearable for most people. It brings out any green you might have in your eyes. The texture is a frost (I think).
