Lipstick - Lancôme - L'Absolu Rouge Lipstick - Rose Nu

5.0
Created with Sketch.

7 months ago

Lancôme's lipsticks are among the best, especially the new L'Absolu Rouge. They slimmed down the previous bulky case design to a sleek black tube with the golden rose emblem on top. Opening it is rather novel - you push down on the top and the lipstick pops out - but I could have done without that. In any event, this shade is sheer perfection. No wonder it's been one of …Read more

Skincare - Face - Evian - Brumisateur Natural Mineral Water Facial Spray

5.0
Created with Sketch.

10 months ago

I never thought much about mineral water facial spray until last summer, when I was at a resort that had a mineral water pool. Every time I took a dip, I came out with softer skin even when it dried. Since then, I've been using this as a toner and it's working very well. It's relatively easy to find, which is a big plus since most reasonably priced lines don't have toner any …Read more

Foundations - REVLON - ColorStay Full Cover Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/15/2018

I liked the previous version in the jar, so I wanted to try this. I really don't notice any difference between the two, aside from the packaging. I also read a comment quoting a Revlon representative stating that it was the same product. In any case, I do like the new tube - it's very handy, especially for travel. However, I don't think this is as matte or full coverage as …Read more

Lip Liners - Jordana Cosmetics - Easyliner for Lips - Rock n' Rose

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/19/2018

This is one of my all time favorite liners, on a par with MAC Spice. It goes with so many shades, anything and everything natural /nude to soft pink and dusty rose. Creamy but has good lasting power. Automatic so no need to sharpen. Factor in the price and it's perfect. This shade and the same product in Tawny will work with practically any shade that exists.

Lip Treatments - LANEIGE - Lip Sleeping Mask

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/15/2017

This may be the best lip balm I ever bought. I got it on a whim at the Aritaum shop in Las Vegas but now my local Sephora has it. It's very thick and soothing, with a delicious subtle fruity scent. It may seem a bit pricey but there's quite a lot in the container. It even comes with a little silicone spatula for the germaphobes out there. One thing to keep in mind: as the package says …Read more

Lipstick - Estée Lauder - Pure color envy in Rebellious Rose

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/20/2017

Estee Lauder lipstick has long been my gold standard - the formula & packaging have always been luxurious. Rebellious Rose is a gorgeous shade of rich, warm rose that would flatter anybody. I'm not crazy about the direction the company seems to be taking with a Jenner/Kardashian for a model and the obvious attempt to capture the youth market (considering that their "mature" …Read more

Palettes - W7 - In the nude

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/08/2016

I saw this in Marshall's and for the price, it was a very nice little treat. I'm familiar with this British brand from magazines, etc. so it was cool to see it here. This is a rose gold-toned neutral palette with lovely shades. I don't own any of the Urban Decay ones so I can't compare, but this stands on its own merits. The quality is on a par with most of our drugstore …Read more

Foundations - L'Oreal Paris - True Match Lumi Cushion Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/01/2016

Although I'm a longtime fan of Korean beauty products, I was skeptical of the cushion makeup craze until now. It always seemed like a gimmick, and an expensive gimmick at that. However, when L'Oreal trotted out one, my unwavering curiosity about new stuff got the better of me. With my drugstore points and a coupon, I figured I didn't have much to lose but in fact, I was pleasantly …Read more

Cleansers - Garnier - Nourishing Cleansing Oil

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/27/2015

I used cleansing oil for a long time & then forsook it for cold cream, which was much cheaper and easier to find. However, it requires a separate cleanser so I wasn't saving much after all. Then I missed the convenience of the Asian one-step oils that I used before, but didn't want to waste time hunting them down online. It was Garnier to the rescue - finally, a good oil that I …Read more

Lipstick - Bite Beauty - Luminous Creme Lipstick - Zin

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/26/2015

This is the latest addition to my growing collection of Bite Beauty, thanks to making VIB status at Sephora and getting a discount. The name describes it pretty well: it's very creamy with a hint of shimmer and a lovely red wine shade. It's one of those red shades that will suit everybody because it's muted and soft. BB makes what is possibly the most moisturizing lipstick on the …Read more
