I have to start by saying this stuff scares me. It smells evil---to the point where it just about knocks you over the second you open the jar---but I would think that should simply drive home the fact that there are some mighty powerful ingredients in there. Which is a good thing when you're in a frantic hurry to get rid of an erupting blemish. It's grey-blue, yes, but you won't …Read more

Concealers - Prescriptives - Magic Pencil

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/13/2004

FABULOUS on blemishes, acne scars, and red blotches---blends right in and makes the ickies dissappear. The pencil is nicely designed, it has a Concealing Wand on one end and a Red Corrector on the other, and both are excellent. I would definitely splurge on this again if I ever ran out---which isn't likely, as it's a huge product.

Concealers - benefit Cosmetics - It Stick [DISCONTINUED]

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/12/2004

This product works superbly for me---I must have exactly the right skintone for it, because the second it touches my face, it's invisible...and so is the blemish I put it on. Stays put exactly where you put it, doesn't fade out, slide off, or allow show-through. I love it! On the pricey side, but the upswing is that you use very little so it lasts a long time. UPDATE: In response to …Read more

Eyeliner - Urban Decay - Liquid Liner / Liquid Shadow [DISCONTINUED]

I have this in GASH, a metallic blood red that is amazingly wearable and gorgeous on. Paired with the right lid shade (or even left by itself) the effect is stunning, especially if used to line the upper lid with an upsweep at the outer corners. Stays put all day until I take it off---once it sets, it's THERE. Love the super-thinline applicator too, it keeps you from ever applying too …Read more

Eye Shadow - RIMMEL - duo in Type of Romance

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/12/2004

When I saw this duo in the store it was one of those "GOTTA HAVE THAT!!" situations where you just click with a product's color and don't care about anything else. That being said, A Type Of Romance is just simply GORGEOUS. A deep, dark, slightly shimmery plum/eggplant purple with the subtlest of pinky golden-bronze sparkle, paired with a rather unexciting shell pink …Read more

Lip Gloss - Urban Decay - XXX Slick gloss in Carney

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/12/2004

I have nothing but raves for this cute little product---on top of being adorable (darling squat little lucite pot with tasselled lid), the gloss itself is superb. Light and airy, it goes on more like a whipped cream than a gloss, and the staying power is excellent. Sheer and pinky with a very slight shimmer, this is one of UD's more adaptable shades (not too much shimmer, not too much …Read more

Eye Shadow - Urban Decay - Eyeshadow - Chopper

Chopper is exactly what I wanted Baked to be--a soft, shimmering coppery gold without too much flash or metallica. And in truth the two shades *are* a bit similar, but for some reason Chopper suits me and Baked doesn't. Chopper is more of a pinky-brown gold (like a slightly tarnished penny) and looks just fabulous on my eyes, bringing out the silver-green and brightening them up …Read more

Lip Gloss - MILANI - Glossy Tubes - Flamingo Fling

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/12/2004

Nice sheer color that lasts a fairly long time. The scent is nice, not overpowering and definitely not unbearable like the other glosses from Milani. No discernable taste that I could detect, but that's better than tasting bad, eh? The color is just gorgeous, a shimmery brilliant pink in the tube that goes on nice and sheer and slightly shimmery. These tubes are my favorite of all the …Read more

Fragrances - Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab - Roadhouse

Oct/09/2004

What rubykris said :-) Not much else I can add to that, except that this was originally intended for The Husband and never made it past my own wrist. Simply superb, and to my uneducated nose (it knows what it likes, not necessarily what it's called) there is a thick, syrupy, almost Dr.Pepper-ish layer in there somewhere. Slightly carbonated, with something richly figgy glopping around. I …Read more

Lip Gloss - NYC New York Color - Liquid Lip Color in GLOSS SLIPPER

4.0

Oct/04/2004

Absolutely gorgeous sheer shade with very subtle gold shimmer. Lovely on its own, but is also extremely layer-able over other colors. For the price, a real steal...the quality is excellent and the peachy scent is a bonus! UPDATE: I just realized what this looks like to me---MAC Nymphette. And oh so much cheaper, with almost comparable staying power. Amazing :-)
