Flat Out Fabulous is a fitting name for this lipstick. I absolutely adore the color, a vibrant cool fuschia with a hint of plum. The closest lipstick I have in my stash would be MAC Quick Sizzle, although Flat Out Fabulous is a touch darker with more purple undertones. This was my first experience with the Retro Matte formula, which has proven to be a workhorse that doesn't quit. Hours after …Read more
I have been using this mascara for the past two months and have only recently begun to absolutely love it. Before it was too wet and transferring to my lids a bit. If I put too much on it could look clumpy and overdone. Now that is has dried out somewhat I am obsessed! It gives me length, separation, and volume for glamorous lashes that still look natural and fluttery. The fragrance is quite …Read more
This is my first "real" foundation after using mineral powders to cover up my occasional redness and small blemish scars throughout my teenage years. I love how it evens out my skin tone (0.5) and looks completely natural. I have an oily t-zone with seasonal dryness on my cheeks, so the demi-matte finish works wonders to keep shine away without emphasizing or irritating any dryness …Read more
If I could only have one blush, Douceur would be it. I've almost used up the one I have and it is my first NARS blush to hit pan on. Douceur incorporates a perfect mix of brown and pink to subtly sculpt my cheekbones and give me a natural hint of color on an otherwise pallid complexion. The texture makes it easy to apply and blend without overdoing it. I can add as much or as little as I …Read more
The palette includes 15 shades that range from light and sheer to black and pigmented. Upon purchasing my palette I was initially disappointed with the way a few of the shades swatched on my arm (Ashes to Ashes in particular), but they translated beautifully on the eyelid. Not sure what kind of magic that is, but it works and looks gorgeous! Many reviewers have complained of too many dark shades …Read more
As a lipstick "snob", I was hesitant to try a drugstore lipstick. However, recently my Chanel, MAC, and NARS lipsticks have been leaving my lips (and bank account) parched. During a sale I snagged this out of curiosity. The Super Lustrous formula is everything I wanted MAC cremesheen to be. For less than half the price though, I got a far superior lipstick. Pink in the Afternoon is a …Read more
The subtle blue shimmer in Crystal Lilac pairs well with casual makeup looks, because it looks natural enough to bring a lovely coolness to my pigmented lips. It is a nice MLBB shade for my fair complexion. Lasts 3-4 hours granted I'm not drinking or eating.
After using Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash since I was 13, my early 20's skin started to get red bumps and irritation. I always had clear skin and kept a vigilant skin care routine, but the products that worked so well in my teens no longer cut it in my twenties. I tried Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Cleanser and Ole Henriksen Aloe Vera Cleanser, and while my stubborn forehead bumps improved …Read more
This burned slightly around my nose area and left my face feeling dry but slightly greasy. I have combination/dry skin and my husband has oily, and we both agreed this felt odd. It didn't help with some bumps on my forehead I recently developed, but it didn't increase them either. My old moisturizer (Neutrogena Sensitive) was much better, although not good enough.
