Pressed Powders - RIMMEL - Stay Matte Pressed Powder

Jul/11/2015

I hate that they reformulated this powder. The version with the black packaging was my holy grail face powder. It kept me matte and provided coverage when applied with a small kabuki brush. The new version contains oil and glitter. Absolutely awful. Pales in comparison to the original and it broke me out.

Shame on you, Rimmel.

I rate the old version 5 lippies and the …

Concealers - Maybelline New York - Master Conceal Camouflaging

Jun/04/2015

Disappointing! It may be because I have tried many different concealers, but this was not full coverage for me at all. I had read many reviews comparing this to MUFE Full cover and I don't know how anyone could compare them to each other. This concealer did little to cover my acne, freckles, or dark circles. Save yourself time and try the following concealers that do provide coverage: …Read more

Bronzers - NYC New York Color - Smooth Skin Bronzing Powder - Sunny

Feb/03/2013

I'd like to co-sign seacolourr's review; I had the exact same issues with this product.

This product is not for ultra-pale (nc-10/nc-15) people, such as myself. When swatched next to my Sephora Los Cabos bronzer (which I happen to love), it's a terracotta orange color-- not a natural color for pale girls. Unless I'm dressing up as an Oompa Loompa for Halloween …

Lipstick - Maybelline New York - Color Whisper by ColorSensational Lipcolor - Lust for Blush

I think I may have just found the PERFECT color dupe for MAC Angel lipstick! Side by side they are so hard to tell apart. Angel is frosty, while Lust For Blush is glossy, but I'm looking at it really closely (my nose is almost touching the swatch), but I might as well be nitpicking.

Anyway, as far as the product goes, it's a nice tinted lip color along the lines of …

Fragrances - Marc Jacobs - Daisy

Until recently, i used to love this scent :( Now I find it smells way too much like Nair hair removal lotion. In case anyone is wondering, I own the EDT version, so the scent might differ from the EDP, as far as I know.

I remember this being a lovely spring/summer fragrance I could wear daily. Now, it collects dust on my vanity. I try every once in a while to use it, but I end up …

Mascara - CLINIQUE - High Impact Mascara

3.0

Nov/29/2012

Honestly, I'm surprised by all the good reviews for this mascara. I happen to think this mascara is boring, unless layered with another mascara. The results I get with this mascara are lengthened, but natural -- nowhere close to high impact. I'm pretty sure there are drugstore alternatives that can give the same effect.

I wouldn't purchase this again.

Lip Treatments - Rosebud Perfume Co. - Strawberry Lip Balm

Nov/29/2012

I purchased this at my local Sephora for about 7-8 dollars, which is pricier than the average drugstore lip balm, but not as expensive as other balms sold at Sephora (Korres, Fresh Sugar, etc.). I had initially wanted to try the original Smith's Rosebud Salve, but they were out of them (except for one nasty, finger-dipped tester), so I was left with this balm and the mint rose balm. I …Read more

Lipstick - Yves Saint Laurent - Rouge Pur Couture #10 Beige Tribute

Oct/27/2012

****Update: I've noticed it start to look too dark for my skintone. Rose Bermagesque, however, still looks good on me.

Favorite color, aside from Rose Bermagesque, that I love from this line of lipsticks. This color is a no-brainer for days when I just want to wear a lip color that will look good on me with whatever makeup look/outfit I choose.

Also, unlike …
