Palettes - GUERLAIN - Universal Eyebrow Kit

5.0

10 months ago

I purchased this for USD $62 after seeing several good reviews for it and they are not wrong. It's sold as a brow kit but it has all the basic colors that you need for eyeshadow, brow and liner. They go on smooth and have not caused me any irritation so far. The price made me a little hesitant but I found that I was reaching for it every day despite having other products available so in that …Read more

Highlighters - GUERLAIN - Meteorites Compact in Clair/Light

I have this powder in medium and nothing else looks quite as good as it for all over brightening. I have tried other brands and they just don't have a comparable effect as they are either too shiny or not glowy enough. I use it both with the Guerlain BB cream and just over another brand of mineral powder foundation as a setting powder and it looks equally good. I have not had any issues with …Read more

I am a little ashamed of myself whenever I buy Guerlain due to the price. However, this is actually a good product. It feels very light and moist on the skin and though the color range is limited ( I purchased it in the medium for $54 USD) it is sheer enough that most people will probably fall into the light/medium/dark that they do have. I am oil/acne prone but this did not break me out, nor did …Read more

Lipstick - Besame Cosmetics - 1965 - Portrait Peach

Lovely color just released by Besame to replicate those worn in the 1960's. The formula is creamy but not overly slippery to where it bleeds. Staying power was decent and I ate with it on with minimal transfer and no spreading of the color. On me it comes out a true neutral peach - not overly pink or orange. It's one of the rare lipsticks where I actually have had people comment …Read more

Honestly smelled like the cheap Kyphi oil you get from new age shops to me. Literally like they just transferred it to smaller bottles. I am glad it was just an imp I had because I would have felt foolish had I paid for a bottle based on the fab description.

Smells like cinnamon incense, with something musky in there too. Very heady and sexy, like an upscale version of a head shop perfume. This is one of theirs that I have repurchased. $17.50 USD for a 5 ml bottle from their website.

This one was just fail for me. Honestly I never smelled incense or anything of the sort that is mentioned. Mainly it just smelled like a Michael's craft store (cheap potpurri?) or a pomander imo. The really unfortunate part was that I purchased a whole bottle for $17.50 based on the ad copy. I ended up using it in my henna mixes to help cover up the smell of the henna.

This is one of the BPALs that has been a favourite of mine for several years. To me it smells like a combination of a latte and the vanilla/powdery scent of dry rotting paper (like a used book store). In my opinion it is very evocative of the university of its name and despite the horror literature ad copy, is actually a comforting scent. Purchased for $17.50 USD from their website.

I reviewed this company long ago, but I think it needed updating since my opinion about them has evolved over the years. As such I deleted the old review and started over with what I feel is a more complete picture.

Firstly, the point stands that the lady who owns this company is GENIUS at marketing. Serious props for making the product appealing. The descriptions of the product are …

My original review for this product was written in 2011, so I decided to delete and update it because obviously if I am still using a product years later, there is something good about it.

I have repurchased this stuff many times in several shades depending on season including Warm Sienna, Golden Glow, Satin, Amber and Radiant. With the "real" stuff the coverage is decent and …
