Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Laugh A Lot

4.0

Apr/21/2010

This is an absolute perfect MLBB colour for me. It's slightly darker than my natural lip colour, so it evens them out and defines them nicely, while adding a pretty sheen. Love the lustre formula, too.

If you have fairly pigmented lips, and are looking for a good everyday lipstick, definitely check it out.

Polishes - ZOYA - Professional Lacquer

Apr/21/2010

I'd heard a lot of good things about Zoya but never gave the brand a try, instead sticking to the more popular OPI. I'm glad I gave Zoya a shot, though, because I've been really impressed. The line has lots of great polishes that fill in the blanks in OPI's standard lineup, such as some really awesome greens and blues. I had trouble narrowing down which ones to try …Read more

Makeup Brushes - MAC Cosmetics - #217 Blending

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/07/2010

What to say about this brush? It's my absolute favourite brush of all time, and I own a couple of them. It's the brush I'd take to that metaphorical deserted island. If I'm in a rush I'll do my entire eye with just this one brush for the sake of time saving. I know a lot of people sing the praises of the 239 as the best eye brush, but I actually prefer the 217 for packing …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Senorita Rose-alita

Feb/07/2010

I can't imagine this being a particularly unique colour (not many pinks are) but it's just so pretty on. It's a hot pink with a golden sheen. It's a perfect toe colour for me, and just makes me feel a little brighter and happier wearing it underneath all my heavy winter attire. It's one of those rare shades (for me anyway) that I am happy with just one coat of. It goes on …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Eye Shadow - Naked Lunch

Ha, this colour deserves 5 lippies for its name alone. The English major geek in me rejoices at the reference. However... the colour itself is pretty awesome, too. It's a shimmery nude that goes with just about anything. It's well pigmented for being so light and is perfect for office/daytime looks. It reminds me of a less frosty, icy version of the famous Stila Kitten, it's a bit …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Smoke & Diamonds [DISCONTINUED]

Jan/19/2010

A unique silvery-grey colour, that's a little more grey than silver. It's got a nice sheen, though. The starflash formula is to die for, too; too bad it is limited edition.

I hadn't really touched this colour in ages, but recently re-arranged my palettes and rediscovered its awesomeness. It's a great colour that goes with pretty much anything. It's great for …

Foundations - MAKE UP FOR EVER - HD High Definition Foundation

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/19/2010

I was sorely disappointed with this foundation based on all the hype surrounding it, and how many people claim it as their HD. I think most of them must have extremely oily skin, because it dried me out big time, looking scaly within hours, and I didn't even use a setting powder. It highlighted dry patches rather than covering anything. Coverage was good, but nothing spectacular or …Read more

Blush - Cargo Cosmetics - Suede Blush - Montebello

4.0

Jan/19/2010

There is no other word for this blush but pretty. Mine is comprised mostly of light pink and beige splashes, with just a few areas with a hot pink colour. It's extremely easy to wear, and brightens up cheeks instantly with a pale rosy pink colour. However, I think this blush is one that will work best for those with lighter skintones. It might not show up if you're darker skinned, or …Read more

Moisturizers - CLINIQUE - Superdefense SPF 25 Age Defense Moisturizer [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/19/2010

I have this in the very dry to dry skin formula. I used to think skincare was skincare and lotions were pretty similar across the board. This cream has proved me wrong, my skin hasn't been in such good condition in the cold, dry winter months in a long time. If you have really dry, bordering on flakey skin, I recommend this cream. It moisturizes without pushing my skin into oily, breakout …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Hue [DISCONTINUED]

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/19/2010

Hue is far, far from well pigmented, but that's to be expected from the glaze formula. What it does do is leave the prettiest pinky glossy finish. It works really well with my natural lip colour, just making it look that little bit better without looking made up. Definitely a thumbs up from me.
