Top/Base Coats - Julep - Freedom Polymer Top Coat

Oct/04/2014

This is my go-to topcoat. In fact, I refuse to get a mani or pedi without it. This dries in 5 minutes flat - so I can confidently put my feet back into shoes or rummage through my purse knowing that my nails will not be ruined.

To be fair, I judge topcoats solely based on dry time - and I have not come across any other product with faster drying time, so this earns top marks in my …

Blush - Tarte Cosmetics - Cheek Stain in Tickled [DISCONTINUED]

Mar/14/2005

I've had this product for a while now, but hadn't used it...mainly b/c i couldn't figure out how to apply it. But now that I have (just swipe it lightly across your apples and up towards your temple, then blend with your fingers in all directions) I LOVE this!!! Not only is the colour beautiful (C30, chinese, brown hair and eyes), it is also very natural. I'm now fighting the …Read more

Lip Gloss - Lola Cosmetics - Lip Gloss in Muse

This is a soft, pale, shimmery pink. Lola glosses are generally not glossy...so nothing like MAC lipglasses. They do, however, give a nice subtle shimmer to the lips. With this particular colour, I found that it was too pale when I first apply it. But give it a 30 seconds...once it settles into your lips, you end up with a very pretty natural lip...you know, the type that models and celebs have …Read more

Lip Gloss - MAC Cosmetics - Lustreglass in Ornamental

5.0

Feb/20/2005

This shade started my love affair with Lustreglasses! And even to this day, I still think Ornamental makes the most of the formula. There's a bit of everything in this - red, berry, gold. Combined with the soft shine, it looks truly stunning on. Alas, I don't wear it often because it does show up quite strongly (C30, dark brown hair and eyes). I think everyone should at least try this …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Au Contraire

I love this shade! This shows up as a dark pure purple on me - very rare, since purples usually show up with too much red or blue. With a light hand, I can wear this during the day, but this eyeshadow was made for night! This is perfect for a smokey eye. It pairs extremely well with digit and seedy pearl. I just wish this wasn't LE. Go get this one if you still can!

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Pro Longwear Lipcolour

I have this in Stuck On You, a copper red. The colour is flattering on my N30 skin and one of the few reds I would actually wear during the day.
This stuff really lasts! It definitely stayed on for most of the day. To make the gloss last, the MA told me to apply the gloss to the colour base while it was still wet, so the two will adhere to each other.
My only complaint is the dryness …

Lip Gloss - REVLON - Skinlights Glosslights for Lips

I have this in Amethyst. Not bad, would like to give a 3.5, b/c its not quite 4 material! There isn't a lot of colour, but it does make your lips shiny. Has a pleasant grapefruit smell to it. I think the grittiness might actually be caused by the applicator...I have no problem once its fully on my lips. Probably won't repurchase, though, as this just doesn't stand out.

Blush - Stila - Bud

Jan/20/2004

I really want to hate Stila blushes, b/c they seem so small and expensive. But I can't! Bud is especially beautiful. It's a soft girly pink and brightens up my C30 skin in a subtle way. The texture and blend is absolutely amazing. Will purchase over and over again!

I guess you either love this or you hate it. I happen to love it. I'm addicted to the burning sensation and it does leave a nice sheen to the lips. While it doesn't make my lips fuller, it definitely makes it redder. I also like the packaging and the applicator brush...allows for precision, which is important, since I don't want it outside the lip lines...might end up looking like …Read more

I really like this! Its a beautiful soft pink, with the perfect amount of glossiness. And it really does moisturize the lips! Besides, its so fool-proof...no mirror needed. However, at $16 Cdn, I find it a bit pricey and the packaging could be improved upon. Overall, this is an excellent product and I'm already planning to get all the shades!
