Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - RESIST Advanced Pore-Refining Treatment 4% BHA

This is a reformulated version and it is not performing as well as the original one. The original one was dispensed as a foam and used weekly, it was amazing. This one has the same potency but is a gel-like fluid and it just doesn't do the job. I am perplexed. I thought of calling the company but you know they'll just say it's the same thing blah, blah. I'm really …Read more

Shampoo - Unlisted Brand - Tweak'd RESTORE Hair Strenghtening Shampoo

5.0

21 days ago

Have you missed Ojon? Well it's back! Now under the name Tweak'd but more on that later. Super hydrating with bounce and shine for days. My hair so needed this. I picked it up at QVC in a 3 piece kit that was shampoo, conditioner and hydrating balm and the products contain dhatelo seed oil which is found in the Himalayas. The shampoo does not have sulfates and it lathers really …Read more

Eyeliner - CHANEL - STYLO OMBRE ET CONTOUR Eyeshadow Liner Khôl - Electric Brown

5.0

These are chubby liners which do double duty as shadows. The consistency is awesome - the smoothest liner I have ever used. It practically applies itself which is giving me a great look in seconds. I even forget I have crepey eyelids with this product. They aren't billed as long lasting but I find they do stick around throughout the day. The colour selection is very good - I got electric …Read more

Eyeliner - CHANEL - Stylo Yeux waterproof Black Wood

A great black brown which quizzically is not an easy shade to find. It replaces the discontinued Pomme de Pin - same colour coming back with a different name. These are twist up pencils that are great for tightlining since they are water proof and are slender enough to draw a very good line and wing. There is a built in sharpener at the end. I'll load up because as I said, not easy to …Read more

Blush - TOM FORD - Cheek Color - Frantic Pink

2.0

Frantic Pink would be best named Comatose Pink - it's that lame. I am fair/neutral so this should have had more impact even though I was looking for something very subtle (for sports). It swatched really nice on a white tissue which is how I judge shades but didn't show up at all on my face. The texture was very soft, blowing dust all over so I'm sure you would work through this …Read more

Polishes - CHANEL - Camelia 506

Camelia is a red with 20% pink thrown in. I don't like reds but in the bottle the pink shows up much more than on application. It is setting off my sandals very nicely but I am haunted by the ordinary of it.

Blush - CLINIQUE - Soft-Pressed Powder Blusher - Mocha Pink

Mocha pink was a fail for me and based on reviews it should have hit the mark. I am fair/neutral with blonde hair and blue eyes and I wanted a product that was going to look like no makeup at all. That it did but the colour has too much brown base and it appeared muddy, A much better substitute, yet still in that category was Antigua Illuminating Bronzer by Bobbi Brown. It is pinker and …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Unlisted Brand - VooDoo MakeUp 10 Years Younger Color Corrector

Here's the first review for Voo Doo Makeup which I cannot believe since it's sold on QVC. The most amazing concealer I have ever used so I suppose there is some magic involved. TOTALLY and I mean TOTALLY knocks out the darkness under my eyes as well as the more difficult sides of the bridge of my nose and as those who are getting up there know, that is the most aging part. It is a …Read more

Eyeliner - PAT MCGRATH LABS - PermaGel Ultra Glide Eye Pencil

4.0
Created with Sketch.

5 months ago

I bought this strictly for the colour - black/brown - to replace my discontinued Chanel. If Nars had a black/brown I would have gotten that since that performs remarkably well. I use this to tightline and it stays put through the day. On the few occasions I used it to line my lid it disappeared. Ok for now I guess.

Blush - Laura Mercier - Crème Cheek Colour in Oleander

On my fair/neutral complexion this is a soft casual look. The colour is a neutral pink since it is blue based but is anchored by some brownish tones. The formulation blends well and looks dewy and natural. It goes on best with fingers. (Note to prissy comments about fingers being less hygienic than a brush - WASH your hands!). The package is very small which is plus because it is so portable …Read more
