This is a great highlighter, but you have to mix it with foundation for it to work as a face illuminator. When I tried using it over my foundation, it wore away the foundation where I had applied it--not a good look. But the thin texture is perfect for mixing into foundation! I mix some into foundation before I apply it to my cheekbones, bridge of my nose, and forehead, and those areas look …Read more

I love it. It's not a showstopper color by any means, but it looks very chic and pretty on my super-pale skin on the days I'm not in the mood for bright red or pink. I have Creme Cup as well but find that leans more lavender, whereas Angel is more neutral and natural-looking without getting into dull MLBB territory.

I previously tried Inglot's liquid concealer (called Cream Concealer) thinking it'd be good for my oily skin. Despite my luck with other Inglot products, it made my undereyes look dry and scaly no matter how moisturized they were and how little I used, and it didn't even last long.

I exchanged it for the AMC Cream Concealer, and this lil jar is amazing! The texture is …

Lip Gloss - Philosophy - I love candy corn

Talk about false advertising! It's called "I love candy corn," it has a candy corn-themed packaging, and Sephora.com says, "It's everything you love about candy corn..." yet this gloss is neither scented nor flavored like candy corn. It has a faint marshmallow scent, and that's it. I see reviews on Sephora.com saying it's the Marshmallow lip shine …Read more

Lip Gloss - REVLON - Peony Colorburst Lipgloss 008

This gloss is an odd one. Despite the Colorburst name, it's not pigmented. It's less shiny than other glosses I own, and the shimmers don't show up. It has a thin, somewhat streaky formula that reminds me of NYX Diamond Sparkle gloss--which I don't consider good quality--and wears off quickly. And the packaging feels surprisingly flimsy for Revlon; the wand jiggles while …Read more

This shade isn't a showstopper, but that's exactly why I've come to like it. At first I thought it didn't look special enough, but it's perfect for those days when you want to look pretty but not obviously made up. Sure, there are lots of shades that do that, but this is one of my favorites in that category. Its neutral pink with brown undertones looks natural and …Read more

These sure get a lot of reviews. I'm a big organic lip balm fan and tried this earlier in the year. While the balm itself is fine and the packaging looks cute, I did not like it. You get very little product, and as you use it up, the edges of the half-sphere start scraping your lips because there's no way to twist up the remaining product like with a traditional stick balm.

I …

Lip Treatments - Burt's Bees - Lifeguard's Choice Weatherproofing Lip Balm

This is thick and therefore great for protecting your lips on harsh winter days. It's like a glove for the lips, and my lips feel warmer and safer from the wind and cold than when I'm wearing a lighter lip balm. Yes, it will give your lips a whitish-purple cast, but I think it's worth it so you don't have dry lips once you get indoors.

Lip Gloss - MAC Cosmetics - Lipglass - Nymphette

I used to own this. It looked good on the rare days my lip pigment pulled more pink; I ended up with pretty pink lips with gold shimmer. But on most days, where my lips look more brown or red, Nymphette did not blend into my lips at all and just sat on top of them as this ruddy color that clashed with my natural lip pigment. I'm not lowering the rating over this, since a gloss isn't bad …Read more
