Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Lustre Lipstick - Capricious

5.0

Capricious is a great fall/winter shade for me (fair neutral skin, honey blonde hair, blue eyes and pale lips). It's sheer enough to not be a whole 'look' on its own and goes well with many eye/cheek combinations. It's very 'office friendly'; a tasteful understated shade that makes you look polished and put together. You can use a liner with it to deepen it up or …Read more

Lips - PAT MCGRATH LABS - Matte Trance Lipstick

Aug/08/2017

I am a self proclaimed lipstick junkie, having all different brands in a variety of finishes (probably close to 100 total). Therefore I just had to get the Pat McGrath ones and I ordered the Everything kit. I have many of her previous kits and am willing to pay a lot for her products because the quality and pigmentation is always on point.

The packaging is very cute, sturdy, and feels …

Foundations - CHANEL - Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation

Jul/18/2017

I have been using this foundation for over a year now after trying everything from minerals to MAC and I love it!

Details:

This foundation is not very heavy. I would describe the coverage as light-medium depending on how much you use. 1 pump is enough for my entire face and then I follow up with some spot correction if needed by putting a little on my finder and tapping it …

I purchased this kit in Ultrasuede Brown. I also have the Metalmorphosis 005 Everything eye kit. I was slightly worried that the Ultrasuede Brown pigment might be similar to the bronze from the 005 kit but it is completely different due to the texture and color.

Ultrasuede Brown Pigment - It is a finely milled powder with a creamy feel and texture. It can easily be sheered out or …

I waffled on getting this for a while due to the price but when my local Nordstrom still had it in stock a week ago I caved and bought it. I am about a NC15-20 in MAC and shade 22 (Rose) in Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow foundation and all the shades in this quad work well for me. I like that you can use all 4 shades separately or swirl together. I tried wearing the gold/brown shades on my eyes …Read more

Lipstick - CHANEL - Rouge Allure Velvet - La Sensuelle #40

Nov/03/2016

I bought this recently as a new 'fall' shade for my collection. I have 3 other Allure Velvet lipsticks and this one is the least matte. It definitely has a more satin finish so if you are searching for a true matte this isn't it. I like the finish but it can get stuck on the outside of your lips giving you a lip line if you press them together after applying so I have to be careful …Read more

I have these in Flirtatious, Bashful, Allure, and Starlet. Although these are pricey you get a lot of product - 7.5ML - whereas my other matte lip paint brand is $18 and only contains 4.5ML. I was able to use a 15% off code, got free shipping, and received a free gift with my purchase so I felt I got a good value.

The formula is not too thick or thin and creamy, spreads well and has …

I purchased six of these on sale at Walgreens with BOGO so they came out to about $6 each. The colors I have are:
Coral Cat - brightened coral, almost orange.
Kitty Purry - it looks more lavender in the tube but pulls pinky-lavender on the lips. This is very flattering on and my favorite.
Pink Paws - a lighter pink for more of a sweet look. I need a lipliner with this or the edges …

Highlighters - PAT MCGRATH LABS - Skin Fetish 003 (all shades)

Jun/08/2016

I purchased both the Nude and Gold shades when they were first released. I am NC15-20-ish and both work on me although I like the Nude a bit better. I think the Gold will look better this summer when I have a tan.

Balm - non sticky, lightweight, has a slight vanilla smell. Used alone it is easily blended and leaves a light almost wet-looking sheen with a hint of sparkle. The …

Apr/29/2016

I first bought the samples of this and the Aqua foundation from the website. I liked both but the Aqua foundation is more sheer and I wanted a bit heavier coverage . I have pretty good skin except for the occasional breakout or clogged pore, so I don't need a ton of coverage - just enough to refine my pores, even skin tone, and brighten me up. I wound up buying the full sized version of …Read more
