I have the Honey Almond Bath Creme and love it! So, I needed a new hand cream and wanted to try a new LM scent. I really liked this scent in the store, but when applied it can be really strong. Use a very little amount-like the size of a pea or it might be off-putting. The consistency is nice, very smooth, and not at all oily. It does moisturize but is not super moisturizing. I would use this for …Read more

Lipstick - NARS Cosmetics - Velvet Matte Lip Pencil - Cruella

Love this red. Blue-based, creamy, doesn't require a lipliner, and has good staying power. I love the pencil consistency because it's more like a moisturizing lipstick rather than a drying pencil. Looks great when I'm anywhere between NC25-NC35.

UGH, I really wanted to like this product. I love the container-I actually think it's quite expensive looking with the glass, and twist off black top. I also love the consistency because it feels very cooling and mousse-like, and it felt good going on my skin. I used my flat top kabuki and it blended like a dream. BUT I HATED THE COLOR. I LOVE the original Revlon Colorstay and have bought it …Read more

Lipstick - REVLON - Super Lustrous Matte Lipstick - Really Red

I really hate to bring down the ratings on this product, but this was not a good color for me. I love red lipsticks and have several, but they are all blue undertones. This red looked completely red-orange on me, and I don't like that look. I was looking for another blue-based red and this didn't work. For reference, I'm warm toned, yellow undertones, NC25-35.

I really wanted to like this foundation. I had tried the Perfection Lumiere and that was a disaster for me, so I was really excited to try this one. I received a sample of B30 and I'm about NC35 in MAC. This sample is a little light for me, and also runs a bit neutral. I have very strong yellow undertones, so this color looked a bit pink on me. This is a light coverage foundation, and …Read more

Blush - MAC Cosmetics - So Sweet, So Easy

Love this! It looks super bright in the pan but it is very lightly pigmented. I needed to put about 4 coats to get it to show up. It is like a cream version of well dressed. I really like how delicate it is, and I would repurchase, but I took off one lippie because of it's lightness. NC35 for reference.

Gorgeous, flattering pink. I really love this color. It's so easy to apply, I don't need a mirror as it is slightly darker than my natural lip color, but not much. It has a slight frost to it, but almost unnoticeable. Creamy. Love the colorburst line.

Polishes - Sephora Collection - Give Peach a Chance

This is a really interesting color. It's a very peach, pastel, opaque color. It looks lighter in the bottle than application. I like the opaqueness of it, but the application is really a struggle. This color was streaky after two coats, so I needed to apply a third. I really don't like having to apply three coats of polish, and even with the third coat it's not completely …Read more

I picked up Pure Zen from the Cremesheen + Pearl collection. It is such a beautiful color!! I love pink and peach nudes and tans, like Hue, Myth, Shy Girl, and Jubilee and Pure Zen definitely is along those lines. It is:
-Pinker and creamier than Myth
-Slightly pinker and less matte than Hue
-Not as peach as Shy Girl
-Not as brown as Jubilee
Basically, having all these …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Lustre Lipstick - Jubilee

Aug/02/2012

I love MAC lipsticks overall, but I really like the lustre finishes because they are so creamy and moisturizing and they don't require a precise application (MAC lipsticks smell so good too!) I bought this color after watching pixi2woo's Top 10 Lipsticks and since I already had many of the ones she listed I knew we had the same taste. This color is gorgeous, it's a brownish nude …Read more
