Lipstick - NARS Cosmetics - Viridiana

This is one of my few non-drugstore, high-end lipstick purchases that was worth every penny and that I would repurchase. The color is a fabulous and rather "warm" brick shade with hints of berry that could probably pass for red depending on your skin tone. It is my go-to shade when I want substantial color/pigmentation but don't want a true red or a very bright lip. On my …Read more

Eye Shadow - Urban Decay - Toasted

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/12/2012

After having this eye shadow for almost a year now, I think it deserves a fair (and very positive) review. Eye shadows have a notoriously bad relationship with my eyes, which are slightly darker than the rest of my medium/tan-yellow skintone (NW35-40) and very oily. Most shades look very different on my eye than when swatched, even with primer. This is perhaps the only eye shadow I own which …Read more

Lipstick - Maybelline New York - Moisture Extreme - Plum Sable

Feb/15/2011

I just rediscovered this in my stash and could not believe 1) how long it's been since I've used it b) why I've never reviewed it. This lipstick is probably the first makeup product that I was truly in love with and went to great lengths to find when it was discontinued. Actually, I was in love with it when it was Moisture Whip in Pure Plum, discovered randomly while abroad. …Read more

Mascara - RIMMEL - Sexy Curves Waterproof Mascara

Jan/28/2011

I'm surprised by the consistently bad reviews this products gets and felt compelled to defend it. This happens to work rather well for me. The formula is not too thick or thin and I rarely get clumps with this. The brush is on the thinner side, which I prefer for getting all the little lashes and for more than 1 coat. Definitely gives more length than volume, and although I would prefer …Read more

Liquid - KORRES Natural Products - Ginger and Vitamins Foundation, SPF 10 [DISCONTINUED]

5.0

Dec/16/2010

This is one my few pricier purchases that I have not returned out of guilt. Other than a dusting of powder if I have the heart to do it, I don't usually wear face makeup. However, light foundations/tinted moisturizers even out my skin and provide a good barrier for my sensitive skin. So I decided to try one more expensive than my drugstore fave (Rimmel 25 Hr in 300-Sand). I really like …Read more

Eyeliner - Stila - Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner Stingray

Dec/01/2010

This Stingray shade convinced me that black is the way to go on my lower waterline. For years, I used dark brown/blue or occasionally, the MUFE in 0L (black) on my lower waterline. But the MUFE pencil really doesn't work well for that purpose. In my mad search for a waterline-friendly formula, I stumbled upon this and am now wondering why I don't hear more about it on the beauty …Read more

Lipstick - CLINIQUE - Butter Shine in Pink Toffee

Nov/08/2010

This is the only lipstick I have *ever* repurchased. It had a nearly permanent spot in my purse until the very last nub of it got squished off. When I have this on me, I never wish I had something else instead. Pink Toffee is such a no-brainer that every girl under the sun could own it and it would serve a purpose. When they talk about "universal," this might be what they are …Read more

If you like L'Oreal's Lineur Intense Eyeliner, you might like this even more. Like the L'Oreal version, it is has this awesome nubby little tip which makes lining (any kind of line) a breeze. I prefer this over L'Oreal because it is a smaller bottle and the handle on the "brush" is also shorter - makes application easier. The only downsides are that I the black …Read more

Lip Gloss - NYC New York Color - Liquid Lip Shine- 553A Au Naturel

4.0

Nov/02/2010

So many things to say about a very basic and inexpensive drugstore lip gloss that I originally used in college and then repurchased for a Halloween costume. Says it all. So, I believe this Bronze/Rose/Beige shade was my go-to nude lip gloss in college, although I used it less frequently with time because it had a bit of a frosty finish and of course, I had other lip gloss loves. I found it …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Vaseline - Creamy Formula [DISCONTINUED]

Nov/02/2010

If you hate body lotions/creams and are too lazy to use them but have awful, scaly dry skin like yours truly, please buy this. It is not the least greasy moisturizer I've ever used - it's just not greasy at all. It's not one of those disappearing moisturizers that evaporates into the air or slowly settles into the skin. It just binds to your skin, the skin eats it up, who knows …Read more
