Blush - Tarte Cosmetics - Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush - Dollface

This is my all-time favorite blush, which is saying something considering how many I have. It's the perfect everyday pink shade that's not too cool-toned, but also not peachy. Peachy blushes tend to look orange on me, so it's always a struggle to find that perfectly balanced warm pink color. Honestly, this is it. It has a lovely matte finish and blends very nicely. It's my …Read more

Concealers - benefit Cosmetics - Erase paste

Jul/18/2011

I got this product (mini size) in a cheap-o set from Sephora. The only color choice you could get was Medium, so I figured I'd never use it and swap it immediately (I have light skin). But for some reason, I decided to give it a shot.
<p>
WOW. The salmony color of this just brightens my undereye area like nothing else. Even though the color looks kinda dark in the pan, it …

Liquid - Neutrogena - Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup SPF 20

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/20/2011

This foundation is pretty good, but not perfect. I have the lightest color (classic ivory) and it is just a bit too light and yellow for me, but the next color is just a bit too dark and pink. However, when I mix this with my favorite TM (Neutrogena HSE) which is just a tad too dark for me, it makes the perfect color. The finish is definitely on the dewy side, so I don't recommend this for …Read more

Liquid - Maybelline New York - Fit Me Dewy/Hydrate/Luminous and Smooth Foundation (formerly Fit Me)

2.0

Jun/20/2011

I have to echo what everyone else has said - this foundation is only for very dry-skinned people! I have combination skin, and I was an oil slick in just a few hours, even after setting it with my trusty dream matte powder. It's unfortunate, because they have a pretty good color range (I found a near perfect match in 115) and right after applying, the foundation looks amazing - not matte …Read more

Pressed Powders - NYC New York Color - City Proof 10hr Long Lasting Pressed Powder

Jun/08/2011

Yeah, this isn't that great. I needed a powder, remembered the decent reviews it got here, and picked this up for less than three bucks. I bought the color "Naturally Beige" which matches me fine - it's slightly translucent so there's some wiggle room. I chucked out the sponge and use a brush to apply. The texture is just average - goes on smooth enough, but can get cakey …Read more

Lip Treatments - Burt's Bees - Tinted Lip Balm - Pink Blossom

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/22/2011

Ol' Burt worked some fine magic with these tinted lip balms. They're sheer (but not too sheer - it should show up on pigmented lips) with a super smooth, hydrating texture. It doesn't feel like their regular balms - these are smoother. Pink Blossom is a neutral, creamy medium pink that I can see working on just about any skin tone (FYI, it's deeper than the color on the …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Eye Shadow - Sketch

Yeah, Sketch is awesome. It's a burgundy wine color with just a hint of sparkle. I thought the reddish tones might not be flattering, but was surprised by how well it complemented my brown eyes (though it would look even better on green eyes!). I love to do smokey looks, and Sketch works so well to play them up with a bit of color. It's also good as a liner for daytime looks, though …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Eye Shadow - Grain

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/31/2011

Grain is the perfect, my-lids-but-better color. It's a soft, peachy pink skin-tone color that doesn't lean too pink or too peach or too yellow. The pictures here don't do it justice. It has a soft, flattering sheen - no frost. I like to use this as an all-over lid color, an inner corner highlight, browbone highlight, or even a cheekbone highlight. It's such a pretty, staple …Read more

Lip Gloss - REVLON - Colorburst (All colors)

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/31/2011

I'm on the fence about these glosses. On the plus side, these have:

- Good color payoff in one swipe, especially Strawberry, the bright reddish pink.
- A lot of sparkle in them without being frosty or gritty.
- Non-sticky texture.
- Nice packaging - kinda reminds you of Chanel, no?
- Great color selection. You're sure to find something you …

Blush - MILANI - Baked Blush - Luminoso

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/31/2011

Wow, what a surprise. I saw these new blushes and my eye went straight to Luminoso, the beautiful shimmery peach. I assumed that these blushes would be like the Hard Candy baked blushes (more like highlighters), but oh, how I was wrong. Luminoso is PIGMENTED. And the sheen is actually very subtle, almost non-existant. I love it! The color comes off like a true peach - it's not orange and …Read more
