Finally found something that looks flattering! 1.5 ounces of 4NN + .5 ounces of 3NN + .5 ounces of 3V!!!! Yes! I'm telling you - it's the most natural look on me and it addresses my weird coloring (skin color) and the double NN's cover grey better than the N's. As the dye wears, it looks more and more natural with hints of faintly reddish hi-lights. My hair is shiny and looks …Read more

I held burial services for the lemming that sacrificed it's life trying to talk me out of buying this blush. Why didn't I listen to my lemming when it tried to reason with me?
If peach shimmery blush looks good on you, you may want to try this. It looked too fake and shiny on me. In my opinion, it's easily dupe-able.

I hated the case it comes in - as I hate all …

Lipstick - Maybelline New York - Color Sensational Creamy Mattes Lipstick - Divine Wine

I expected to love this, but I can't wear it. For a pale person, I can often get away with dark reds. But this one is darkened with a color that doesn't flatter me. With my pale mauve natural lip color (ah...that's washed out liver color...), it has a dull dark blah tone to it, the red does not dominate. *sigh* Really depends on your coloring. I would have rated this higher because …Read more

Lipstick - Jordana Cosmetics - 005 Blackberry

May/30/2016

I purchase this at Kmart, Food 4 Less and Lucky grocery stores in California. In-person prices range from $1.29 to $2.00. I have purchased a 6 pack on Amazon - very convenient but it costs more per tube.
Well I was indifferent, at first, to this humble little lipstick. The case is ugly but works well. The scent is like fruit punch. The lipstick applies easily without skipping and leaves good …

Lipstick - Jordana Cosmetics - Burnt Sugar

This color is clear and intense without being "bright." The formula was smooth and applied well - leaving nice crisp edges. This might be similar to MAC Diva. The bold wine in Burnt Sugar plays up my otherwise "tame" washed out hazel green eyes - can may them look like they are made of crystal. On me, Burnt Sugar is a vivid wine burgundy.
My default lipstick is …

I love Jordana lipsticks. I have some shades that are long lasting and leave a lovely stain. At $1.50 per bullet, I buy them and leave them all over my house and car and workplace. I've had two different people tell me that I should never wear any other lipstick than the shade Jordana Blackberry. I buy those by the multi-pack.
However, I had trouble with the texture of Matte Red …

Lipstick - Unlisted Brand - Walgreens-Heroine from Wonder Woman set

2.0
Created with Sketch.

May/14/2016

Well, I just had to buy the lipstick from the Wonder Woman set at Walgreen's. It feels like disposable makeup (like kid makeup - and perhaps that's the whole point of having a cartoon character on it) and didn't apply or spread evenly. It is a cool hot pink red - it comes in a red case (warmer red case color unrelated to product color) with a cartoon picture of Wonder Woman on the …Read more

Lipstick - Jordana Cosmetics - Eggplant

Apr/10/2016

I love Jordana lipsticks (Blackberry is my staple - I buy them in bulk). Eggplant was waxy and hard to spread. I couldn't work with it but wondered if maybe holding it in my hand to warm it up (uhmmm....when at home I sometimes put a lipstick or chapstick in my bra to warm it up while walking around getting ready for work. Is that just TMI?) might have made it softer and easier to work with …Read more
