Palettes - Kat Von D - Ladybird True Romance Eyeshadow Palette [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/27/2014

It's really nice to find an all matte palette. Sure I love shimmers and glitters and all that but it's great to be able to do matte looks and can be hard to find a nice set of colors. As of the moment, as far as larger shadow palettes go, Ladybird can't be beat. So many looks and variations to be had and I like how she mixes up warms and cools so this palette has shades that …Read more

Hair - Bumble and bumble - Pret a Powder

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/01/2013

I didn't put this under shampoo or styling products as technically it's marketed as both. I love Bumble and Bumble and most of my hair products come from them (I don't use a ton of styling stuff but the hairdressers invisible oil and brilliantine make the cut as well as Surf Spray) so when I saw they had a new dry shampoo (did not like the other spray one at all) I wanted to test …Read more

Brows - benefit Cosmetics - Gimme Brow + Volumizing Fiber Gel

Sep/28/2013

I have light brown hair and purchased this in medium/dark as the lighter shade had sold out and I'm glad to have the darker shade. The color is buildable and I prefer to have my brows be a brown shade rather than say ash blonde. If I run one coat over my brows I get a very natural medium brown that I think pretty much anyone that doesn't have very light brows can sport. Additional …Read more

Blush - NARS Cosmetics - Soulshine

Jul/21/2013

Okay so this is a really quick review so you can make a good choice if this is for you. I strongly suspect that both the palettes I received contain 3 existing blushes. I wear NARS powder foundation in Mont Blanc or Sheer Glow Tinted Moisturizer in Finland (I believe that is the name), also Stila illuminating tinted moisturizer (which I really like for my super dry skin) in …Read more

Okay so this is a really quick review so you can make a good choice if this is for you. I strongly suspect that both the palettes I received contain 3 existing blushes. So. I do like In the Realm of the Senses. I wear NARS powder foundation in Mont Blanc or Sheer Glow Tinted Moisturizer in Finland (I believe that is the name), also Stila illuminating tinted moisturizer (which I really like …Read more

Palettes - NARS Cosmetics - And God Created the Woman Set (LE) [DISCONTINUED]

Mar/02/2013

Great set of versatile neutrals. I was concerned some of the shades would be too dark, like Coconut Grove, but the selection is perfect and can go from day to night in a flash. Many of my daily favorites are in this palette which I like and I do like the tiny travel size of the palette. I do question NARS shrinking it's eyeshadow and artist palettes down in size and hope it is not a trend …Read more

BB Cream - Urban Decay - Naked Skin Beauty Balm

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/02/2013

Not good for fair skin, has an orangey tint that gives you a somewhat tan look. Face became inflamed right away and I had horrible breakouts every time I used the product. Whiteheads would pop up within minutes and I'd find myself washing it all off. I know my tools where clean as I wash the optical blurring brush daily (nice brush) and I did not have that issue using it with my nars TM. …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - CLINIQUE - All About Eyes Serum De-Puffing Eye Massage

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/18/2011

I normally do not use Clinique but this is an excellent product that does everything it claims too. This was purchased because I would wake up with puffy, swollen eyes. I think it's a sinus issue or allergies but it is painful and has been going on for maybe a year. Sometimes the pain was so bad it would trigger headaches. Anyway, I've had this about 2 months or so and from the first …Read more

Highlighters - NARS Cosmetics - New Order Highlighting Blush

1.0
Created with Sketch.

May/18/2011

I really want to like this. Another NARS highlighter? It's named after my favorite 80's band? How could I not love it? But I don't. The product has some issues and maybe as I work with it more I will like it better but here it goes. For starters, this is sold as highlighting blush but it's really pale and unpigmented and not a blush. It is a highlighter and it does have …Read more

Palettes - NARS Cosmetics - Portrait of Paradise Blush Bronzer Trio (LE)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/14/2011

What could be better than 3 of NARS hit products in one easy to use palette? This is LE for summer 2011 and contains Albatross Highlighter (HG for me), Orgasm Blush (again HG) and Laguna Bronzer (I'm more a BECCA or Guerlain girl for these but it is a good bronzer so no complaints from me here). This palette is great for getting ready on the go. It has a very nice large mirror and is a …Read more
