Mar/15/2013

I'm pretty happy with this product. I have tried many shadow primers, including UDPP and TFSI. UDPP used to work amazingly well for me. However, after it was repackaged, I no longer find it to be as effective. This has been a pretty good replacement. I tried it originally because of the excellent reviews and I am happy that I did. It keeps my eye makeup on well. I will notice some slight …Read more

Blush - benefit Cosmetics - Georgia ] ] [DISCONTINUED]

Jul/29/2010

First of all, the packaging is great. I love Benefit's boxed powders and figured I would love this one as well. I like Georgia, but I definitely do not love it. It makes an ok finishing powder, but there is no way I could use this as a blush. I'm pretty pale (NW15) and this did not provide much color at all. I will continue to use this as a finishing powder to set my makeup and perk up …Read more

Bronzers - benefit Cosmetics - HOOLA

This is the best bronzer that I have used, and I have tried many. The texture is great and blends effortlessly into the skin. Also, the color works very well with my NW15 skin. You can dust it lightly for a hint of color, or you can use a more dense brush and build up to a deeper shade. It doesn't pull orange on me either, just a nice natural tan shade. I will def repurchase if I run out …Read more

Palettes - Urban Decay - Book of Shadows Vol. II [DISCONTINUED]

Feb/09/2010

This is an AMAZING palette. I saw it in Ulta and knew I had to have it. I was sad to have missed out on the first Book of Shadows, so when I saw that there was a second volume, I was super excited. The price of the palette may seem a bit high at almost fifty dollars, but when you think about what you are getting, its actually an amazing value. One individual Urban Decay shadow retails for 16 …Read more

Mascara - Yves Saint Laurent - Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils

Feb/09/2010

I was so excited to try this mascara based on the reviews here. I love Diorshow mascara, but was looking to try something new, so I gave this a shot.

The packaging is absolutely beautiful. I wish the quality of the mascara itself measured up to the packaging, but it does not. My lashes are already pretty long, but they have no volume. I know many people had success with Faux Cils, but …

This is such a pretty gloss. I was happy when I recieved this as a gift from a good friend because I have been wanting to try it. I like it a lot. The color is a very pretty pale pink that is flattering against my fair skin. The gloss feels comfortable on my lips as well. It is neither sticky or drying. I also like the fact that the gloss is completely free of any gross odor or taste. Although …Read more

Nov/10/2009

I loved the adorable packaging so much that I decided to give this powder a try. I found it at the CCO for a good price so I didn't mind trying the product. The powder itself is ok. Its not great. Its not terrible. In fact, I didn't find that it did much of anything for my NW15 skin. It works to help keep shine away, but that's it. For the price I found it for, I will keep using it …Read more

Palettes - Too Faced - Natural Eye Kit

Aug/20/2009

This is one of the best palettes that I have ever purchased. I bought the natural eye palette for myself after using it on a client. They loved it and so did I. The shadows are very wearable and the quality is fantastic. They blend effortlessly and are more pigmented than other pricy shadows. The price is also pretty reasonable since you are getting 9 gorgeous shades for $34.00. This is …Read more

Lip Gloss - Stila - Plumping Lip Glaze

Jun/15/2009

This is one of my favorite lip products right now. This stuff definitely makes my lips feel fuller, without the stinging which is caused by some plumping products. The size is pretty big as well. I will most likely repurchase this.
