So for a long time I thought these were just overpriced tinted lip balm. And they kind of are... but they're great overpriced tinted lip balm. Better than many far more expensive tinted lip balms. They just make your lips look great and feel smooth. I like them much better than Burt's Bees.

One of those lipstick/lipgloss hybrids and the nicest I've tried in that category. Better than the Dior Fluid Sticks, I think -- goes on smoother and travels less. I have RD03 (flame red) which is a really nice brownish red. Not too sticky or too glossy, just a subtle flattering sheen. The lasting power isn't great, but decent for this kind of product. Kind of a similar finish to YSL …Read more

I bought this palette despite the bad reviews, and I'm glad I did. Per ounce, it might be a bad deal -- but I've never used up an entire powder product, so that calculation seems kind of irrelevant to me. (I did have a ten percent off coupon, which helped. I'd rather be able to try six products without buying six large and more expensive pans. I took off one lippie because the …Read more

I'm surprised this doesn't get better reviews. It's my favorite of the two-ended long-last lip colors I've tried, high-end and low. I like the balm much better than a sticky gloss. It lasts more or less all day, as long as you avoid any food too oily, and it's very comfortable for a long-wearing lip color. Hard to remove, but that's part of the deal. More complex …Read more

I'm a sucker for three-in-one products, even though they're always disappointing. This one is the worst I've ever tried. It really only works as a blush. On eyes it's way to slick to stay put; on lips it's drying and looks gray. It is a nice blush color, but nothing special enough to make it worth keeping just for that (although by TF standards, the price isn't …Read more

There aren't a lot of reviews of these two-step lipcolors online, but the ones out there are mostly positive. So I was surprised how much I disliked this. It started flaking off in patches by midday, and I was able to remove it with water and a little rubbing. It's a shame because the colors are nicer than a lot of similar lipsticks, but not as nice as a regular lipstick -- and if …Read more

I bought this in a blog sale hoping the middle shade would be a dupe for NARS' Nepal. But these are so sheer that it doesn't really compare. At first I was disappointed but I've grown to really like this set. It's almost like a contouring kit for eyes. All three colors together create a really nice, subtle shimmery glow, as close as I can get to Olivia Pope eyes. The taupe is …Read more

Eye Shadow - CLINIQUE - Black Honey All About Shadow 8-Pan Palette

I bought this palette because a lot of purples irritate my eyes. Even with primer and good brushes, the pigmentation is not great, and neither is the lasting power. With the included brush you literally cannot get any color on your skin. The shadows are also really hard to blend. I tried the "Wear Everywhere Pinks" set and had similar issues. I might have put it up with it if these were …Read more

Lipstick - Burt's Bees - Matte Lip Crayon

I have three of these -- Redwood Forest, Napa Vineyard and Niagara Overlook. Of the three, I like Redwood Forest the best. A really wearable everyday red, and it's a good balance of pigment and smoothness. Napa Vineyard is the most matte of the three and the hardest to match, but still reasonably forgiving. Niagara Overlook is just a touch more slick and less pigmented than I would like. All …Read more

The first Clinique eyeshadow I've ever actually bought, and it's much, much better than the dusty GWP I associate with the brand. This is a really great set of versatile shadows for a warm green eye. None of the colors are too artificial or neon in the way that a lot of green shadows can be. Without primer there is a little fading and creasing at the end of a long day; with primer they …Read more
