Lipstick - Too Faced - La Creme Lipstick - I Want Candy

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/05/2014

I Want Candy is a medium, warm rose pink - very pretty and wearable. It's got the same fantastic (vegan!) formula and gorgeous packaging as the rest of the La Cremes. This shade in particular is very similar to the limited edition shade, Believe, that appeared in one of Too Faced's christmas collections - Believe is just the tiniest bit peachier, while I Want Candy is very slightly more …Read more

Eye Shadow - LORAC - Eyeshadow in Spice

On me, Spice is a light, almost nude taupe. LORAC describes it as "cafe au lait," and I think that's very apt. It's on the brown side of taupe, sort of a softly shimmering light chocolate milk color with a hint of grey. It actually reminds me of a lighter version of one of my favorite taupes, Wet n Wild's Nutty. It's a very neutral, natural color - nothing showy or …Read more

I wanted to love this mascara. And when I first put it on, I did! It went on smoothly and gave me soft, fluttery lashes. It creates a very nice, natural-but-better kind of look. Unfortunately it also smudges worse than anything else I've tried. The first time I looked into the mirror mid-day and saw a black smudge under my eye, I thought it was a fluke. It happens, you know? But no such …Read more

Lipstick - REVLON - Moon Drops Creme - Blase Apricot 702

Great color, awful awful smell and taste. This was my first Moon Drops lipstick and it will probably be my last, because while the color is a gorgeous bright coral and I will use it, the smell and taste are so off-putting. The Colorburst and Super Lustrous lipsticks thankfully don't share this issue so I never expected to have a problem with the Moon Drops, but YIKES. The formula leaves a …Read more

Lipstick - Too Faced - La Creme Lipstick - Coral Fire

I own a few of these lipsticks - I love them all, but they vary in texture a bit. Coral Fire applies more smoothly than Juicy Melons but less so than Bumbleberry. It doesn't catch on dry patches and though I wouldn't call it hydrating, it doesn't dry my lips out either. Lasting power is average for a lipstick.

The name is a bit misleading on this one. I was under the …

Lipstick - Tarte Cosmetics - Aqualillies for Tarte Glamazon Lipstick in Timeless

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/27/2013

Timeless is a bright, strawberry-red-coral lipstick. The texture is very creamy and pigmented. It's not super moisturizing, but it's not particularly drying either, which is high praise for a lipstick. A lot of reviews I've read have described Timeless as being SUPER bold and bright, and while it is bright, it's not crazy neon or anything. It's very wearable. I've …Read more

Tinted Moisturizer - Paula's Choice - Barely There Sheer Matte Tint SPF 30 [DISCONTINUED]

Very sheer coverage - even lighter than I expected from something with Barely There and Sheer in the name. I prefer light coverage, but this stuff couldn't even even out the mild redness on my cheeks. It's also not particularly matte - I set it with powder and still found myself a bit shiny.

If you like a dewy finish and barely there coverage, you'd probably like this …

Eye Shadow - bareMinerals - Bare Minerals Ready--2.0 in The Top Shelf

Created with Sketch.

Jan/14/2013

I bought this after my best friend raved about it. I wear mostly neutrals and they looked really pretty. Honestly? I'm underwhelmed. The colors are nice - Mixologist is a pearly vanilla color and Cognac is a rich medium bronze - but the pigmentation of the lighter shade (Mixologist) is lacking in my opinion. Cognac is better, but still nothing to get too excited about. And the kicker is that …Read more

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Million Lashes Waterproof Mascara

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/05/2012

This stuff is amazing. It holds a curl like nothing I've ever used, and doesn't clump at all. The only downside is that it's a nightmare to remove. I've yet to figure out how to get it off without three rounds of makeup remove + face wash, so it's not an everyday thing for me. If I ever figure that out, I'll never wear anything else.

I have the waterproof version of this and love it, but it's a nightmare to remove. I picked up the regular carbon black version hoping it would do the same wonderful things to my lashes without taking a jackhammer to get off at night. Unfortunately I was wrong. This stuff is thoroughly unremarkable. A very wet, heavy formula that uncurls my lashes in an instant. Blah.
