I got this as a freebie with my Sephora Beauty Insider points and I'm SO glad I did! I will def buy this mascara again! I have sensitive eyes and cannot use ANY drugstore brand, unfortunately, and I've tried them all. So I have to buy more expensive mascaras.

In the past a couple of my favorites have been Lancome Definicils (which is great) and the DiorShow, DiorShow …

Lipstick - wet n wild - MegaLast Lip Color - Bare it All

I wear mostly high-end makeup (Nars, UD, Stila, etc.) but in my quest for the *perfect* nude lipstick, I've been trying anything & everything.

For me, this lippie is the PERFECT nude shade. (I'm a neutral skin tone...wear Nars Sheer Glow in Santa Fe for ref) It has enough pigment to show up, but still gives that "nude" look. Yes, it's rather dry. But I …

Lipstick - REVLON - Super Lustrous Lipstick - Pink Pout

I know this is matte lipstick, but looked like a chalky mess on me. I bought it because it's a dupe of Mac "Snob" and the color is very close. But texture....awful!!! Feels & looks extremely cheap. I even topped it with some gloss thinking that would help, but the chalky/streaky-ness of it still showed through.

I LOVE Revlon Super Lustrous formula, but not this …

OK, so I have combination skin, definitely leaning toward dry. I LOVE my Nars Sheer Glow foundation, and was looking for a less-expensive alternative to it. I've seen several online sources say that Lumi is a decent dupe for Sheer Glow, so I decided to give it a try.

First of all, let me say that I use Smashbox primer, and when I use it with the Nars Sheer Glow + Nars pressed …

Palettes - Too Faced - Naked Eye Kit

I've had this palette for a while and for the longest time I thought there was something wrong with ME or the way I applied the shadow. That is until I used some other similary priced shadows in similar colors and had drastically different results.

Too faced is great at putting together nicely-coordinated color palettes and the packaging is so cute, they are hard to resist. …

Palettes - Tarte Cosmetics - Be MATTEnificent [DISCONTINUED]

Created with Sketch.

Mar/10/2014

I bought this palette this past weekend while shopping at Ulta with my teenage daughter. She has the UD Naked 3 palette, but it has a little too much sparkle for me. Plus, I was looking for a more cool/plum-ish purple toned eyeshadow combo. I'm a blue-eyed blonde with neutral skin tone, leaning toward the cool side (I wear Nars foundation & powder in SantaFe, for reference). Eye …Read more
