Mascara - Lancôme - Grandiose Mascara

1.0

Feb/12/2016

I wanted to love this, I really did. The shape of the wand is clever and useful, however the brush itself is designed to clump: the bristles are too far apart.

I have short, straight lashes. Grandiose added no length (worst I've ever used in this regard) and little volume. It did make my lashes darker, but they are stiff, lumpy and stuck together. It's definitely not …

Concealers - Maybelline New York - Master Conceal Camouflaging

3.0

Oct/12/2015

This is worth a try! It's the best drugstore concealer I've ever tried and I usually don't even bother with anything but Cle De Peau anymore because I have such severe hereditary discoloration. It can cover my nearly black dark circles through sun and sweat. I use it in "Light" and apply it with a foundation brush. I apply two thin coats over my moisturizer and …Read more

Blush - L'Oreal Paris - True Match super blendable blush n1-2 precious peach

I'm pale and dead neutral, so when I saw this in the store, the name scared me. I'm used to pink blushes and will avoid anything that even hints of pulling orange. "Peach"? Heck no.

Fortunately, this is the loveliest neutral pink blush I've ever purchased. It looks totally natural (nothing like the photo above) - it balances and brightens my face. I feel …

I've tried everything to cover my hereditary dark circles. Nothing really worked. I had resigned myself to always looking tired. When an incredibly rude woman asked me last month what was wrong with my eyes, I decided to head to Nordstrom's.

I'm fair, so the MUA initially tried putting the lightest shade, Ivory, on me, which did nothing but turn my circles grey. …

Eyeliner - Marc Jacobs - Highliner Gel Crayon Eyeliner - Blacquer

This is my favorite waterline eyeliner. I purchased it in a full sized set with several other colors, but Blacquer is the only one that lasted all day.

The downside is that it is extremely expensive $25 / .01oz and you'll go through it fast. I bought mine at the very end of November, used it once a day on my upper and lower waterline, and was out of it by mid January. …

Mascara - Urban Decay - Perversion Mascara

I have short, straight, thin, light lashes, so am always looking for good mascara. Received this free from Ulta and am relieved that I didn't spend money on it. I'd be seriously irked if I had. I've tried it over my Lancome Cils Booster and alone. It's barely sufficient either way. It does not add significant length, fullness or curl. It's not any blacker than any …Read more

BB Cream - Smashbox - Camera Ready BB Cream Eyes

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/19/2014

Extremely drying around the eye area with almost worthlessly sheer coverage. The latter being a huge problem because it's almost impossible to use this as a base, layering it with a better concealer (which I would have been willing to do). As soon as I put another concealer on top (Tarte, Amazing, Nars, YSL, etc...), this somehow sticks to it and pulls off, leaving bare spots of splotchy …Read more

Eyeliner - Buxom - Hold The Line Waterproof Eyeliner

Purchased this in "Door's Unlocked", a gorgeous, blue-based, true purple. Intended to use it on my waterline, but it quite simply would not adhere to my waterline. No color transfer at all.

Returned.

Tinted Moisturizer - NARS Cosmetics - Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30

Feb/19/2014

Went into Sephora to restock my Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream in Fair and got talked into Nars Tinted Moisturizer in Terre Neuve.

The color was a little too dark, but my main issue was with the texture. It reminded me of a water based high end foundation I had when I was a kid - it spread thinly into all of my pores, leaving a wash of dry, noticible color. It emphasized pores I …
