Lipstick - REVLON - Colorburst [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/21/2010

I was rather peeved when Revlon discontinued their Renewist lippies last year - I liked them a lot in the winter with their moisturizing formula & had had good luck with finding colors that worked for me, but when I heard good things about the new Colorbursts I decided to check them out. These get a big thumbs up from me, assuming you can find colors that work for you, which isn't the …Read more

Polishes - Sephora Collection - Sephora by OPI - Worth my Weight

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/02/2010

Fabulous glittery gold polish, pretty much my favorite of the $OPIS. Its a small gold glitter in a clear base with larger holographic pieces added (two sizes, I think) - the gold is a nice pale yellow shade, not too orange or bronze & looks great on my pale Indian skin tone. Two coats are plenty for a mani for me (three would be all out bling) that wears well. I rec that you make sure you …Read more

Eye Shadow - Lancôme - Color Design - Vue

Oct/31/2009

Pretty medium shimmer champagney-peach eye shadow in the same vein as Stila Kitten but without the over top shimmer. Makes a nice neutral for a fast eye. Standard Lancome quality in a cute slide top chic black case without the fuss of a useless sponge brush or too small mirror - thankfully someone recognizes they are completely unusable & its better to use your own good quality brush and …Read more

Don't worry if you've been unable to find this gorgeous polish, China Glaze re-released this as part of their Xmas 2009 collection & its showing up in stores now. If you love greens, this is a must have for your collection. If you've never worn green polish, this is the one to try.


The polish is a beautiful deep emerald green glass fleck in a blackened base, so …

Polishes - OPI - You Don't Know Jacques! Suede

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/07/2009

I suspect this will turn out to be one of those polishes people either absolutely adore or absolutely hate. I personally like it - I find the suede texture interesting & unusual & the color works nicely for my skin tone. I particularly like it for work - its business appropriate while still being a bit unique & edgy (I should add I'm not a big fan of the Essie pink/nude cream …Read more

Polishes - OPI - DS Designer Series Jewel

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/07/2009

This is a very unusual sheer plum tone brown with a red shimmer, which makes odd compared to the other OPI DS polishes as it is not a true holo as they are. It also seems to take a weirdly long time to dry compared to the other DS polishes and also given how sheer it is. I wouldn't repurchase, as I suspect that there are better options with which to replace this, its pricey at reg retail …Read more

Polishes - China Glaze - Nail Lacquer - Ravishing, Dahling

Oct/06/2009

One of my favorite deep red jellys, just a fabulous color & texture, so fabulous that I'm willing to put up with the pain in the neck this can be to apply. It takes several coats to get to the bottle color & a while to dry, but I happen to think its worth it, particularly since China Glazes are really pretty inexpensive per bottle.


I also hang on to this color …

Polishes - China Glaze - Side Saddle

Gorgeous deep plummy brown with a lot of subtle gold shimmer. Its deep enough to be vampy, but more approachable & I can get away with this in a fairly conservative office. Makes a wonderful fall mani or pedi & wears like iron for me. Two coats are all that are necessary for good opaque coverage & no streaks.


I'm very fond of China Glaze polishes in general, but …

Lipstick - REVLON - Matte Lipstick - Wine Not

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/20/2009

Revlon's line of matte lipsticks really are winners, great formula and finish and not excessively drying. As far as I know they are the only line of drugstore mattes that are widely available & like Revlon's SuperLustrous line they are fragrance free, nicely packaged and reasonably priced, particularly if you get them on sale (reg price is $8).


I do wish that they …

Polishes - wet n wild - Craze in Shield [231]

Sep/19/2009

My first Wet 'n Wild polish & I'm really quite impressed. I picked this up on a whim because I needed a warm metallic polish to wear for a long weekend wedding & this color (its a pretty bronzey pewter on me) was a nice neutral, subtle metallic shimmer that wasn't too bright * worked with my skin tone & the different outfits I was going to wear. Cute bottle, dirt cheap …Read more
