Feb/12/2012

The one on display at target was so soft, so I decided to buy it.
I was looking for a backup foundation brush and liked the shape of this one.

The quality is very much lacking.
It's quite stiff and mildly scratchy, my face becomes irritated while applying the foundation. It doesn't make my foundation look bad or anything but it's too uncomfortable to really …

Eyeliner - Urban Decay - 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in 1999

This liner works GREAT for me. I'm very fair with very green eyes so this compliments me quite well.
Glides right on and has decent staying power on the waterline. The sparkle is very very subtle. The brown/purple color is quite pigmented. It's a lighter version of Rockstar, it's what Rockstar should have been.
Sadly, it's so creamy that if you used it daily, the …

Lip Gloss - MAC Cosmetics - Cremesheen Glass - Boy Bait

One of my FAVORITE lip colors that I own.
It's a nude with very small hints of pink and purple. Any skin color of any type can wear it. It's creamy and long wearing. It's sticky like all of MAC's lip glosses, so it's just something you have to get use too.
Of course, it won't hold up to eating but almost nothing does, or does well.
There's …

AMAZING, BEAUTIFUL COLOR. It's such a dynamic purple. The microshimmer really makes it.
Other than that, it's quite awful. It's very goopy, thus making it so hard to apply. The polish never seems to dry, either. I ran my hands under water about an hour later and it started gooping off my nails.

Ugh, total crap. I always shake and take great care of my polishes, too …

Great color. It's very unusual and interesting. The pictures shown are very accurate in portraying the color.
The polish itself is quite "dry" but easy to apply. Drying time is fantastic as well.

Sadly, this simply doesn't last. In under three days, it started chipping, with a top coat. not minor tip wear but chipping as in, "Why is a third of my polish …

This is a beautiful red polish. It appears to be a brighter red in the jar but translates to a deeper, almost retro red on the nails. It's a very versatile color that can be worn on all occasions. The microsparkles are AMAZING in the jar but don't really show up once applied. there's still a shimmer but not as intense as one would think.
I was very disappointed to see how …

Honestly, the name of this lipstick brought me in. I tend to shy away from very dark lip colors due to my very fair skin. I could not resist with this one.
It's a beautiful dark berry shade that doesn't look jarring at all. I have decently light blonde hair as well and it seems to suit me very well. The color is highly pigmented with fantastic lasting power. It's also very …

Lips - Flirt - idol

Jan/17/2012

I bought this because I wanted more pinks in my collection.
Idol isn't florescent but not a nude, either. It's in between. It can look very teenager, so use it sparingly.
It's moisturizing but has literally a negative staying power. within MINUTES of applying, it's fading away. It didn't even last an hour. I timed it. After it's gone, it dried out the …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Lustre in Lady Bug

Jan/17/2012

Since I am very fair, most reds are too harsh on me. This one is very retro and suitable for light complexions. It's not berry at all, which I find most "reds" to be nowadays.
It's a slightly darker, more pigmented version of a brick red. The color is light enough for day wear paired with a minimal eye look. It can be played up for night time as well. since this is a true …

Lipstick - CLINIQUE - Almost Lipstick - Black Honey

This would be a great lip stick/gloss if it had any lasting power. Yes, the color is universally flattering on everyone. It does moisturize very well. Thing is, after a few minutes of wear, it starts to disappear. Though my lips didn't get chapped at all, it's pretty insulting to pay $15 for something that's useless. It's not a drugstore lip balm, it's suppose to be a …Read more
