5 months ago

I finished my second bottle before giving up. Pa+G smells nice and the lightweight oil absorbs quickly into the skin, leaving a lovely glow. (I was using as a booster with Marie Veronique facial oils.) However, it did absolutely nothing to fade the sun damage on my face. Wondering if I was diluting it by mixing it with another oil, I applied it full strength to a lentil-sized caramel spot on the …Read more

Blush - benefit Cosmetics - Benetint

Jun/18/2017

The color, a sheer pink rose, is so pretty swatched on the back of my hand, but it does nothing on my lips. Perhaps it's because the tint is nearly the same color as my lip pigment. I didn't love Benetint as a cheek stain, either. It is extremely watery and hard to blend without the stain soaking into my skin unevenly and looking blotchy. The only way to correct is to remove and start …Read more

Eyeliner - REVLON - ColorStay Liquid Liner

Jun/10/2017

My eyes are extremely sensitive, and I have a hard time finding eyeliner that doesn't irritate. I discovered this one several years ago, and quickly became my favorite. I tightline from underneath the lash line to frame my eyes and give the appearance of thicker lash roots, without looking like obvious makeup. I love the short, stiff brush (felt tip?) that allows for complete control without …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Lustre Lipstick - Plumful

Jun/03/2017

No matter what other lip products are tumbling around in my cosmetic case, Plumful is always with me. I have re-purchased it at least six times. I love the contrast against my pale skin, good for day or evening. The color translates to a red, violet-tinged rose on my pigmented lips,but I have to be careful to not swipe too many times, or it can turn too blue. Plumful is not overly shiny and I see …Read more

Lipstick - Maybelline New York - Color Sensational in Mauve Mania

Jun/03/2017

I'm always looking for a cool-toned, rose lipstick with no shimmer and minimal shine that doesn't turn purple or blue. Mauve Mania settles into satin mid-toned pink rose on my lips, and with multiple swipes, the color stays the same. Unfortunately, it isn't The One.

Mauve Mania (MM) is similar to Revlon Super Lustrous Mauvy Night (MN), but I find Revlon to be superior in …

Eye Shadow - CLINIQUE - Colour Surge Eye Shadow Stay Matte-Stone Violet

Dec/22/2016

I was lucky enough to find this discontinued eyeshadow recently, and I feel so mad at CLINIQUE for phasing it out (which they seem to do with all the mattes that most flatter my skin tone, such as Slate, Dark Denim, and the Pink Slate Duo. Stone Violet is not as warm as I feared it might be. Perhaps my pan changed color as it sat in storage all this time, but I see a cool-neutral grey base with …Read more

Eye Shadow - Laura Mercier - Eye Colour- Margaux

Dec/12/2016

I realize that writing a positive review for a long-discontinued product is futile, but I just opened my LAST backup of this shade, and I feel like holding a wake. Most reviewers are saying that Margaux is dusty grey with lavender undertones, and while I see the same thing, I also detect a hint of ash brown. That teensy bit of brown grounds the color and makes it more of a natural extension of my …Read more

Lip Treatments - Fresh - Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 - Tulip

Jun/12/2015

Until recently, I did not understand why this tinted lip balm was so popular. I have twice received minis from Sephora (birthday or regular GWP) that I hated. The balm smelled like crayons and felt crumbly and gritty on my lips. Then I came across the Fresh Sugar Addiction Mini Lip Collection. My heart fluttered when I realized that the set contained the tints I most wanted to try: Tulip, Petal …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Bobbi Brown - Bronzer Brush

Sep/04/2014

Perhaps there have been quality control issues, but my Bobbi Brown Bronzer brush is full and as soft as any Hakuhodo goat hair brush I own. It applies and blends bronzer as designed. I also use this brush to apply low-pigment blush, BB Shimmer Brick highlighter, and pressed or loose powder foundation. It washes and dries perfectly, keeping its shape. I love this brush, and though I said I would …Read more

Eye Shadow - Rouge Bunny Rouge - Matte Longlasting e/s in Bashful Flamingo

I agree the color is a disappointment, but I don't think I should downgrade the product just because it didn't flatter my skin tone. I do agree with the previous reviewer that this color is far more peach than pink.
