Lip Gloss - NYX Professional Makeup - Butter Gloss

These are awesome. I love MAC cremesheen glosses and these are like of the drugstore version for me. The glosses are not super sticky (which is why I do not like MAC lip glasses, and instead only wear cremesheen glosses). The packaging is nice because the tube is the color of the gloss and the doe foot is great. NYX has a problem with giving colors name that do not match the product (such as …Read more

Blush - Physicians Formula - Murumuru Butter Blush

Jun/13/2017

There were two shades originally released: Natural and Plum Rose. Natural is a very soft warm pink, almost with a hint of peach with subtle gold shimmer sheen. Plum Rose is a cool lavender rose with a slight white pearl sheen. I am NC30/NC35, and Plum Rose looked ghastly on me. It looked so gray and sucked all of the life out of my face. If you have warm undertones, this will do NOTHING good for …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Extra Dimension - Zestful

Apr/19/2013

ZESTFUL EXTRA DIMENSION EYESHADOW. Originally released with the In Extra Dimension Collection (Spring/Summer 2013). MAC describes this color as "pale iridescent lime." When I saw the swatches online, the color looked very pastel with very little iridescence. I had no intentions of picking this up. When I saw the color in the packing, it looked orgasmically beautiful and very iridescent …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Cremesheen Lipstick - Shy Girl

I don't think I have been as ambivalent about a product as Shy Girl. I adore the name (I have an affection for all things chola). The color is pretty too; it's nude without being boring. Sometimes I put this on my lips and say, "wow! It looks great. No wonder I love this color." Other times, I see my lips and think, "why doesn't anyone tell me how horrible my lips …Read more

Skincare - Face - Dickinson's Brands - Dickinson's Witch Hazel

I have been using this on my skin since I was a teenager.
As a teenager, I used this on my oily skin as a gentle but effective astringent (Sea Breeze was often too harsh to use all over my face and I hated the sticky residue Sea Breeze left behind).
Now that I am in my 30s, my skin (on my face at least) is normal (no excessive oil and no excessive dryness). I use this …

Lip Gloss - MAC Cosmetics - Feelin' So Good

4.0

Feb/15/2013

Debuted with the Feb 2013 Archie's Girls collection. MAC described this as a deep blackened plum. It is a indeed a blacked plum, but there are some red and brown tones in there, too, that prevent it from just being a very dark, cool-toned purple. I didn't intend on purchasing this because I already have MAC's Pro Longwear "Dark As Night" (DAN) and it looked very similar …Read more

Eye Shadow - L'Oreal Paris - Paris Infallible 24Hr Eye Shadow (All Shades)

Apr/13/2012

Like everyone and their mother, I was excited to try these. I picked out Endless Pearl (off white) and Continuous Cocoa (dark cool brown). Turns out that both are satin finishes. I don't mind that, but I didn't realize that some were satin finishes because everything I had seen looked so metallic and shimmery. [Note: I have since figured out that you can tell the finish of the shadow by …Read more

Eye Shadow - Sonia Kashuk - Eyeshadow Quad - Brown Eyed Girl

2.0

The colors look so pretty and multidimensional in the pan, but end up looking like silver glitter on the eyes. And the glitter gets everywhere. Everywhere. Like sand and cat hair, the glitter went everywhere: my cheeks, my shirt, my hair, my car dashboard... I adore my brown eyes so I love the name, but this palette is an injustice to brown eyed girls everywhere.

When I showed this eyeshadow to my co-worker, she said, "You already have several colors like that. In fact, you wore it yesterday." After sticking my tongue out at her, I vowed I would prove her wrong as soon as I got home and was able to swatch it against other shadows in my stash.

COLOR: MAC describes this as a warm black. In the pan it looks like a very, very blackened …

I always wanted an MSFN but was always too chicken to buy one. I came across Femme Couture Mineral Effects Baked Bronzer (mine is in "Beach Girl"), which looked like baby MSFNs. I liked by Femme Couture so much that I couldn't wait to swap for an MSFN. I had swapped for 3 MSFNs in Medium and Medium Plus before I figured out that I didn't like them. Initially, I loved the light …Read more
