Ellis Faas is my new HG brand discovery for eyeshadow and lips. I have purchased all the reds in her Blood Red Collection and I have been wearing L101 the most. As previous reviewers have said, this is a universal red that should be flattering for every skin tone, since it really mimics beautifully the color of blood. It is a gorgeous red that can be worn for any occasion, casual or formal. The …Read more

Brows - Hourglass Cosmetics - Arch Brow Micro Sculpting Pencil

This is a really great brow pencil for adding in realistic feathery hairs with soft strokes. I took a lippie off because of the price in relation to the amount of product. The pencil is very thin and sharp and it's a twist up and it's flat, so it can't be sharpened. This is not an issue however, as the thinness of the nub is such that it stays thin anyway. The colors are really …Read more

Eye Shadow - TOM FORD - Soleil Neige Eye Color Quad - Soleil D'hiver

I purchased Soleil d'hiver as a quad that I could use for an every day, office appropriate look. This is the original wet-dry formula and the colors are beautiful golds and coppers. I wear it mostly dry, as this is my everyday quad, but I have to say, for low key days when I am not meeting clients, this might be a tad too fancy, even for an office look. It is absolutely gorgeous and …Read more

Eyeliner - Linda Hallberg Cosmetics - Black Core Crayon

Black Core is a matte, long lasting black eyeliner that needs a sharpener. It's very pigmented and buttery, so it doesn't drag on your eyelids. It reminds me a lot of Urban Decay's Perversion, although it is a lot more long lasting and smudge proof than Perversion. If you are looking to create a smoky eye, you can smudge this, but once it sets, it's there to stay. I bought …Read more

Eyeliner - Melt Cosmetics - All Day/Everyday Eye Liner - Mixtape

Mixtape is a vivid purple with very fine specks of glitter. I hate glitter, but this is so finely milled it does not look garish. The color is pigmented and the formulation is very buttery, so it doesn't drag on your skin. It's supposed to be long lasting, but it needs a primer. With concealer or primer it lasts and stays vibrant even on my oily lids. I like it a lot, but I much prefer …Read more

If you have oily or combo skin with sallowness, you will enjoy this primer. It has a pinkish, lavender color which is great for color correcting that did not look like a fake white cast on my skin. It's tacky, so it's a great canvas for holding on to a moisturizing foundation. In my case, I have used the Koh Gen Do Moisture Foundation and even though it's winter here and I …Read more

I got a big sample of this from Sephora and I have been wearing it for a week now. Before trying it, I read a lot of the reviews on here and what I realized is that mascara is one of those products that are really personal more so than for other cosmetics. My eyes are very watery plus I have oily lids, so based on the reviews on here I thought this mascara will be racoon central. Imagine my …Read more

I love creme blushes and lip and cheek duos even more. This comes in 5 different shades and the one I got was in Burgundy. It was the most beautiful, sophisticated reddish burgundy I have ever tried. Unfortunately, I couldn't get that exact color to read on my skin, as this product was sheer. It was very beautiful, nevertheless, and it wore really well on both cheeks and lips. On my cheeks …Read more

After a little over a year of using Differin I switched to Tretinoin. Insurance doesn't cover this in my country, so all I can get from my doctor is a tiny, tiny little jar that barely lasts me a week and costs a bundle. God bless Thailand, because you are able to buy a lot of prescription drugs there without a prescription and at a fraction of the cost that people have to pay in other, so …Read more

It's okay, but I can get the same effect with a lot of lip glosses from the drugstores in my country at a fraction of the cost of this. Don't get me wrong, I like the effect this gives, which is a slight touch of pink to the lips that makes my mouth look plumper, especially when paired with a good liner. It's comfortable, not gloopy and doesn't dry up my lips. If you have the …Read more
