I tried this product because I was looking for a general overall lip gloss. This is a pretty rose gold lip gloss with great color. It's a nice shimmer on my pigmented lips but it isn't completely opaque. It has a thicker application but not tacky feeling like MAC lip glass.I also love the smell, not overpowering or chemical smelling. Oh and the packaging just looks so glamorous. Would …Read more

I don't wear bright red lipsticks, stains or gloss. My coloring makes orange reds look off on me so I tend to go for blood reds and reddish purples. I vowed that I was going to give a brighter red a chance and put my money on this. I love the feel, the shape of the brush and the glass bottle. You don't need to over apply this for coverage (even on my pigmented lips I used one coat) and …Read more

I was really disappointed with this fragrance. I love spicy and woodsy scents and I'm a big fan of Christian Dior Addict and Calvin Klein Euphoria. Both which I've gotten compliments on as they are really great long lasting fragrances. This one disappeared as soon as I applied it. No matter when or how I applied it lasted only long enough for one whiff. (two lippies off) Smells great …Read more

Wow I can't believe this has such low rating. I give it a 4//5. I bought this in High Drama (a deep dark plum) because Vamplify in Modern Drama was out of stock and the colors are a little similar. I have a thing for dark lip colors. So glad I got this. I wore it three times this weekend before writing this review and I love it. I went to a brunch, the club and many many drinks later that …Read more

The infamous Ben Nye banana powder. Definitely hit or miss. Unfortunately a miss for me. I'm an NW45 for reference. I lean more golden/yellow undertone and this looked soooo ashy on me. Maybe I didn't blend it enough? I guess I'll never know because as soon as I saw the pics I took that night I almost died from embarrassment. OMG it was so bad. It looked like someone slapped me in …Read more

I'm on my second tube of NARS Tiber. I'm a MAC nude junkie but ventured out and discovered this HG lip gloss. Part of the Larger Than Life glosses this is a hidden gem. As a WOC it's hard finding a good nude. I pair this with MAC Cork lip liner and sometimes Fresh Brew lipstick. It's just as fine by itself. Not as sticky as MAC lip glosses, stays on for more than four hours …Read more

Can't believe I have never written a review for these glorious little cotton squares of heaven. I've been using Shiseido facial cotton for about four years now. I bought these at the Shiseido counter when the lady used it to apply a moisturizer to the back of my hand. OMG I thought I had died and went to heaven. Strong enough to remove even my toughest eye makeup and not tear but soft …Read more

Dec/24/2015

So I bought this as a dupe for the Becca The One Perfecting Brush. No way was I spending $50. I'd seen a lot of videos using this to contour so I bought this to give it a try. This brush is so soft but it's so huge. Maybe my face is to small? Maybe I'm using it wrong too. I tried to use one side of the brush to apply my bronze as I seen in videos and talk about mess. I can't …Read more

I bought this in Liv and after debating the cost I took the plunge. I'm a MAC matte lipstick addict so I haven't worn such a creamy lipstick in quite some time. Liv is similar to Smoked Purple in color. This is such a joy to wear and I'll probably purchase it again if I'm in a mood to splurge. This was $32 compared to MAC's $17. Oh and hands down the container is just …Read more

Got this as a sample and couldn't figure out what to do with it. Like was it a toner, primer, setting spray, skin refresher?!? Was it similar to my MAC Fix+? Did some digging and found out it's a 3 in 1 liquid primer. I've used Smashbox primer for years and I was game for something new. I pumped a couple of spritzes on my face and it felt light and didn't smell heavily scented …Read more
