Lip Liners - MAC Cosmetics - Lip Pencil - Soar

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/07/2016

I didn't think I ever needed another nude lip pencil besides my HG Spice, but I read on a website somewhere that Soar was a great pink nude for Indian skin tones and I couldn't resist trying it out. And it's true! It is wonderful!! (I am NC25/C4/C5.)

Now I use Spice with more brown-based nude lippies and Soar for more pink-based nudes...unless I feel like pinking up a …

Palettes - MAC Cosmetics - Nordstrom Naturals

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/29/2015

I was thinking about building my own 15-pan of MAC eyeshadows when I saw this palette listed on the website which already included NINE of the shades I was interested in (Satin Taupe, All That Glitters, Amber Lights, Saddle, Mulch, Ricepaper, Woodwinked, Embark, and Beauty Marked). I had Honey Lust and Wedge on my radar, too. The remaining shades are Vapour, Omega, Brun, and Carbon. The Nordstrom …Read more

Toners - Garnier - Fresh Toner [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/30/2015

I love this toner! It's gentle, affordable, and it works like a charm! I like the smell, too. In fact, I like everything about it.

I don't use it every single day simply because I'm not very meticulous about my face and I don't have a set routine, but I have very dry and sensitive skin (eczema!) and this toner has never been a problem for me even when I have used it …

Fragrances - benefit Cosmetics - Maybe Baby

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/26/2015

I've had Maybe Baby for a number of years now and out of all of my fragrances (and I have quite a few), it is one of that ones I would single out as being among my least favourite...almost, but not quite, a regret. And YET...(bizarrely?)..it's also one of the ones I've ended up wearing the most since I bought it.

It's a very light, sweet peachy fragrance. At some …

Lips - Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics - Lip Tar - Anime

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/21/2014

I'm in love with the hypercolour pink of this lip tar! Anime is the perfect name for it. Even though it's super bright, for some reason it is very flattering on my light brown skin tone (NC25/C4/C5). I've only worn it a few times and each time somebody has complimented me on the colour and has asked what it is and where they can get it. It's a lip colour that just wants to …Read more

Lipstick - Stila - Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick - Beso

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/20/2014

This lip product by Stila is unlike anything I have ever used before. It goes on like a gloss but becomes matte. And oh my lord, is it ever called Stay-All-Day for a reason. I have only used this twice so far, but both times it lasted through two meals, multiple beverages, smooches, and even a nap. It really stays and stays! It is drying, but I think that is basically just the reality with …Read more

Lip Liners - MAC Cosmetics - Lip Pencil - Spice

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/20/2014

This is my HG lip pencil, the one I use basically every day.

On me (NC25/C4/C5), it is the ultimately MLBB pinky brown. On its own, with gloss (filling in your lips), it's beautiful, and since it's so neutral, I feel like you can actually use it as a basic lip liner with many bolder colours, too.

I remember going to pick this up over a decade ago, after reading …

Lip Gloss - MAC Cosmetics - Lipglass - Nymphette

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/20/2014

I am a girl who has a LOT of lip glosses around (it's a sickness!), but this is one of only a couple of high-end lip glosses I have ever used up (hard to do when you have so many around and are constantly losing track of them in one purse or another) and the only one I have ever repurchased.

It is a beautiful golden pink that would be flattering on any skintone (I'm …

Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Powder Blush- Melba

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/20/2014

This is a gorgeous coral blush that I can imagine flattering any skintone. It was recommended to me by a MUA when I asked for a natural-looking coral. (For reference, my skin is NC25/C4/C5.)

It's my first high-end powder blush (I've used Benetint and a Pout Flush Blush stick for years), and I really love it. That being said, I think most blushes end up looking flattering on …

Lips - LUSH - A Million Kisses

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/20/2014

I purchased this product a few weeks ago and after using it for a little while, I still feel torn about it. Here's the lowdown:

Pros:

The colour is really beautiful, flattering, and buildable. It somehow manages (I'm not sure how!) to strike this elusive balance between bold and natural.

A little goes a long, long way -- making for a $10 product that …
