Mascara - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Fix Lash

2.0

Apr/10/2010

Terrible. It didn't hold a curl at all - almost all mascaras hold a curl on my lashes. The formula gave me droopy, saggy lashes. The comb brush made for messy, clumpy application. Also sucked the volume right out my lashes, which was really disappointing. The only good thing was that it made my lashes inky-black for about an hour after I first applied. I'm sticking with MAC Plushlash.

Moisturizers - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Moisture Cream

5.0

Hands down, the best moisturizer I've ever used. It draws moisture in from the air as you wear it, so it continually hydrates your skin all day long.

Formula is thick, rich and ultra-luxe...feels unbelievably comforting on skin. Perfect for winter, when skin needs a little extra moisture, and yet somehow not too heavy in summer.

This is a miracle moisturizer.

Palettes - MAC Cosmetics - Devil May Dare Warm eye palette

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/31/2009

It is a bit pricey for $36, but with 6 awesome shadows in this palette, it's great that you don't get a clunker in the bunch. All shades are totally wearable (if the colors work with your shade), and can be combined in any way. As with most MAC shadows, the sheen is gorgeous. The metallic finish is beautiful, and the colors are so rich and deep.

I never fall for gimmicky …

Blush - Tarte Cosmetics - Cheek Stain in Flush

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/11/2009

I use Flush constantly in the winter. I would use it year-round, but if you apply any type of powder (like bronzer), it smudges and gets cakey. I wish they'd change the formula, which is now like a hard jelly consistency, so that it didn't streak so badly when applied over powder. Applying under powder just doesn't have the same effect.

When you apply it to bare skin, it …

Mascara - Giorgio Armani - Eyes to Kill Mascara

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/05/2009

I was initially turned off by the price ($28, which, in my opinion, is a lot for a mascara when I can get awesome MAC Plushlash for $13). However, if there is one thing I cannot resist spending on, it's mascara!

I had been reading a lot about Eyes to Kill, and I was pretty intrigued by the sleek ads, and good press it's already generated, so I couldn't resist picking up …

Eyes - Ardell - Runway Lashes - Daisy

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/29/2009

I recently was in a wedding, and decided to wear false lashes for the first time. I went to the Ardell display at my local beauty store and was immediately drawn to the full, wispy fringe of the Daisy Runway Lashes.

I wore them to the wedding, and many times since. They make your eyes pop, but not in an over-the-top way. They're hand-knotted and made of real human hair …

Lip Gloss - MAC Cosmetics - Dazzleglass - Money, Honey

Jul/29/2009

I'm a sucker for anything shimmery. This goes a bit beyond shimmery, more into the glittery realm, which is more than I'd wear on a normal day. I bought a tube a few months ago because I fell in love with the sparkle, and it sat in the bottom of my makeup bag. There is too much glitter in the gloss to wear to work (I work in an office), and I kept forgetting about it on weekends …Read more

Lipstick - Bobbi Brown - Creamy Lip Color - Rose Garden

5.0

Jul/29/2009

This is only the second lipstick I've ever purchased in my life, and the first I would repurchase. Rose Garden is a perfect shimmery pinkish-nude, and the color is sheer and wears like a gloss. I love that it's light and comfortable to wear. I've been wearing this lipcolor nonstop since I bought it 2 weeks ago.

Eyeliner - Too Faced - Metal Eyed in Shotgun

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/29/2009

I hate liquid liner because of the steady hand it requires. I just prefer a pencil which I can use for several different looks (clean lines, smoky & smudged -- whatever).

I adore this metallic liquid liner. First, the brush tip is razor-thin. It makes it so easy to apply the liner. I wasn't even really trying to keep a steady hand the first time I applied it, and I still got a …

Styling Products - Living Proof - Straight Making No Frizz Styling Treatment Thick to Coarse Hair

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/13/2009

I have never had such straight or gorgeous hair as I do now that I'm using the No Frizz Straight Making Styling Treatment.

My fine-to-medium hair is naturally wavy (with a weird, erratic wave), and I have trouble getting it very straight, or even in uniform waves. I wanted to try this after I read about the science behind it (developed by MIT faculty, no silicones), and a Sephora …
