Mascara - KANEBO - kate mascara base

Dec/03/2007

I bought this on eBay based on a recommendation from someone on the boards, and I was not disappointed! It is significantly cheaper than Shiseido's mascara base, and just as good. I get the best results if I curl my lashes, apply a coat of the base and then follow up with mascara before the base dries. It keeps a curl all day and makes my lashes super fat and long. The only downside is …Read more

Lipstick - GUERLAIN - KissKiss - 560 Pushy Pink

This lipstick is the perfect pink for my cool, pale skin. The texture is creamy, luxurious and long lasting- just what you would expect from Guerlain. The packaging is pretty large, but that just makes it easier to find in my messy bag. At $27 they are cheaper than Chanel Rouge Allures (which I also love) but not exactly affordable. I bought this as an early Christmas present for myself, and …Read more

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Lash Blast Volume Mascara

So I too fell for the hype with the mascara. I was slightly disappointed, but I think my expectations were a little unrealistic. I actually like a lot! It makes my lashes super fat and separated, just like my beloved Chanel Inimitable for a fraction of the price. The only problem I had was some minor flakiness after wearing it all day. It was so little, though so not a deal breaker for me. …Read more

Blush - CHANEL - Narcisse [DISCONTINUED]

I bought this on eBay because I couldn't bring myself to spend $40 on a blush. Now that I've tried it, I'm sure I'll be buying more Joues Contraste blushes. The price is quite steep, but the quality is great and it's a beautiful color. Narcisse is super flattering on my very fair cool skintone. It is very subtle, just gives a little flush of color and glowiness to my …Read more

Eyeliner - Urban Decay - 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Lust

This gorgeous purple liner makes my brown eyes pop and lasts all day. I wear this on my waterline and it stays exactly where I put it. My eyes get watery from allergies often, but this liner doesn't disappear like most. The pencil is quite soft so you can't get a very fine line, but that's not a problem for me. I will absolutely repurchase when I run out .

Loose Powders - Caron Paris - Classic Formula loose powder

Wow! I purchased this powder in Madame based on raves from many ladies on the boards. I am so glad I did! I have very pale, very oily skin. This powder applies like a dream and keeps the oilies at bay for hours. I do have to blot once during the day, but that is an improvement over any other foundation I've tried. The texture, scent and packaging are so luxurious. The Classic powder …Read more

Lipstick - CHANEL - Rouge Allure-Libertine

Oct/09/2007

I'm officially obsessed with this lipstick. It was my first Rouge Allure, and I'm hooked. The color is amazing on my cool pale skin; its a lovely shimmery bright coral. The formula is very smooth and long lasting on me, and its not drying at all. $30 is a pretty hefty price tag for a lipstick, but these are worth every penny. I wore it almost everyday in the summer and will …Read more
