Eye Makeup Remover - Klorane - Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover with Soothing Cornflower

5.0
Created with Sketch.

4 months ago

I was forced to give up my beloved Shu Uemura cleansing oil as an eye makeup remover years ago, as my eye doctor said it was contributing to the redness and irritation I was experiencing and advised using oil-free removers only. I switched to Philosophy's Just Release Me and was quite happy with it...then it got discontinued. On a whim I decided to try this one from Klorane. It's not …Read more

Eye Shadow - Bobbi Brown - Luxe Eyeshadow in Jungle

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/10/2018

This is easily the stand-out of Bobbi Brown's fall 2018 camouflage-themed collection. Jungle comes in the fairly new Luxe shadow formula, a smooth, highly pigmented metallic texture. But Jungle goes above and beyond with a "multichrome" finish. I'll try to explain the color as best I can, but words might fail me because it's breathtaking! Jungle is a dark …Read more

Cleansers - Sephora Collection - Micellar Cleansing Milk (Coconut)

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/12/2017

I think I'm about done with micellar cleansing waters, seeing as how they totally fail at removing makeup. I wasn't a fan of some other micellar cleansers but still went for this Sephora one since it was thicker than a regular micellar water and smelled like coconut, which I love. Sadly it didn't work any better than others I've tried - I really had to scrub to get my …Read more

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Blissful

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/08/2017

NARS has done it again for fall 2017. Blissful is a beautiful shimmery deep plum/berry with a hint of blue sparkle. If this doesn't sound like something you'd like I'd still give it a chance since it's barely noticeable once applied - you can really only see it up close. It's got the usual great NARS texture: silky smooth, long-wearing and highly pigmented. Colorwise …Read more

Lip Treatments - Vaseline - Lip Tin - Pink Bubbly

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/30/2017

In the summer of 2016 I remember there being an online frenzy for this limited edition, champagne-scented Vaseline that was available only in store at Walgreen's. I managed to hunt one down and then refused to use it without having a backup, because I knew I'd go through a tin in a matter of weeks and be very sad when it was gone - that's how good this smells! Fortunately Vaseline …Read more

Eye Shadow - Butter London - Glazen Eye Gloss - Mermaid

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/30/2017

I love mermaid anything, especially mermaid-inspired makeup, so I just had to buy this. It was my first foray in Butter London's makeup - their nail polish is great so I figured the Glazen eye shadow would be good. Sadly I didn't think the quality was on par with their polishes. In the pot it looks more swamp hag than mermaid (I couldn't for the life of me take an appealing …Read more

Bronzers - Marc Jacobs - O!Mega Bronzer Coconut Perfect Tan - Tan-Tastic! (Limited Edition)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/27/2017

After being loyal to Benefit Hoola and NARS Laguna for years, I decided to branch out and try Marc Jacobs after hearing all the rave reviews. Plus I couldn't resist the white packaging and coconut fragrance. I'm pleased to say it did not disappoint, and in fact it's become my favorite bronzer. Compared to Hoola and Laguna, this version of Tantric (as opposed to the one in Marc …Read more

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Blush - Gaiety

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/26/2017

I buy nearly every blush NARS releases without really researching it first. So I was a little worried Gaiety would be too close to Desire, which I also own. Fortunately they're different enough to warrant purchasing both (if you wear lots of pink or are a NARS blush fiend like I am). Gaiety looks like an almost neon bubble gum pink in the pan but blends beautifully once applied - …Read more

Blush - TOM FORD - pink sand

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/18/2017

I didn't really need yet another pink blush with gold shimmer, but this was just so pretty I couldn't resist. And yes, it's different than NARS O: Pink Sand is slightly cooler and more pink, and I found the gold shimmer to be a little more subtle. It's pigmented but not crazily so - one swipe was enough for my NC15-20 skin - but it can be built up for medium skin tones …Read more

Highlighters - Unlisted Brand - Milk Makeup Holographic Stick: Supernova

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/18/2017

My obsession with all beauty products labeled as holographic rages on, so I immediately scooped this up when it was back in stock at Sephora after it was OOS for months. The color is a shimmery (not glittery), iridescent bluish purple that is shockingly understated - I found I had to pile on quite a bit to reach the unicorn level of sheen I was craving. It's fine with me as I prefer …Read more
