Lipstick - Lipstick Queen - Frog Prince

4.0

May/12/2016

A few months back and for some completely inexplicable reason, I began searching for color-changing lipsticks. I was mostly looking for something that I don't have to re-apply every hour. I'm open to all brands; I may love Dior and Guerlain but I am not to proud to try out a Kleancolor or L.A.Girl. When I did a search for color-changing lipstick, the Frog Prince was one of the first …Read more

Lip Gloss - Unlisted Brand - Honey Sticks Lip Gloss

Aug/22/2015

Ack! Ack! I was desperately trying to find a lasting lip gloss that might moisturize my winter-dry lips and happened upon this drugstore product. I thought that I would overlook the marketing if I could find something that was emollient and lasting. Honestly, if I could give negative lippies, I would do so. This was one of the worst products I have ever tried. The smell was utterly off-putting; …Read more

Lips - Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics - Stained Gloss

As a bona-fide lipstain fiend, my heart just absolutely leaped when I saw this product advertised. The shade pictured was "Nomad," and it looked to be a perfect deep plummy red. I went up to the OCC site and decided that I absolutely had to purchase the Nomad as well as one named, "Dekadent." The Stained Glosses are quite different from the Lip Tars; they are much more fluid …Read more

Lips - REVLON - Colorburst Matte Balm (All Shades)

3.0

Jan/18/2014

Good color range, decent lastability, opaque. I tried Shameless. Lordy, lordy, it is wild. I like burgundy/purple/berry tones, but this one is super-dark and makes me look like a crazy woman (I'm an NC-20/25). I definitely cannot use it but must be fair. It's opaque, nicely matte, and pretty affordable. I don't think it convinced me to purchase more. Not moisturizing but not …Read more

Lips - Mehron Makeup - Lip Palette Night/Day

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/18/2014

Perhaps I'm not being fair, because, honestly, I was hoping for more of a lipstain than a lipstick. Alas, this was not at all the product that I had hoped for. Mehron is a company catering to the theater and as such, tends to be long-lasting and highly pigmented. These lippies are extremely pigmented, and I am awfully pale. I actually like berries and deep pinks and things that lean to …Read more

Concealers - L'Oreal Paris - True Match Super Blendable Crayon Concealer

5.0

Jan/18/2014

Love! I have deep, dark circles under my eyes and this does a fabulous job. Coverage is great and I find that if I apply it under the foundation, it's nicely blendable. It doesn't settle into the fine wrinkles in my 50-plus year old skin, which most concealers seem to do. It almost has a powdery feel to me as I blend it out, but it doesn't dry as a powder. It lasts very well …Read more

Lip Gloss - wet n wild - Megaslicks Balm Stain (all colors)

I really love these! Surprise! I have 3; Lady & the Vamp, A Stiff Pink, and Reddy-or-Not. They go on smoothly, fade evenly, and stay true to color. I have tried tons of balm sticks like these - Clinique Chubby Sticks (2 thumbs down), Tarte (hated the scent & drying effect), Sally Hansen (1 thumb up), etc. Honestly, the W'n'W is the only one I will buy again. Lady and the Vamp is …Read more

Polishes - Nicole - Enchantress

Oct/27/2013

This is one of my all-time favorite polishes. It's the closest to an "opal" for the naked nail that I have ever discovered, but it also pretty amazing as a top coat. Fabulous over purples/reds/blues; it's like playing with paints to find new shades. Over purples, it becomes an iridescent magenta. It plays with the light. It is sheer but has a sweet voice of its own. Honestly …Read more

This is an amazing palette and amazing quality. I can seriously put this on at 5 a.m. and it will still look good at 10 p.m. when I take it off. I do not use primer, just a bit of basic foundation. The only thing that would make it more perferct is if it had a taupe! The palette has a perfect silvery, lovely violets/purples, etc. Very blendable, richly pigmented, no creasing. I've had mine …Read more

Polishes - Unlisted Brand - Hand & Nail Harmony Gelish Gel Polish

5.0

Nov/01/2012

Oh! Oh! Oh! This is one of the best things that I have ever, ever purchased. I bought the little Gelish LED light on a whim at Sally's after coveting the OPI-Sephora light set. The Gelish is less than half the cost even after adding the polishes. I watched a couple of videos to be certain that I had the technique, and it was easy as pie. The LED light means that the process takes little time …Read more
