    Tarte Natural Cheek Stain

    not true love at all...

    I wanted to love this stain so much, especially after shelling out thirty bucks for it. However, it's greasy and caused my cheeks to break out - and my cheeks never broke out before I started using this. I definitely will not be using this blush again anytime soon - I'm sticking to powder formulas.

    Urban Decay Cream Shadow

    amazing eye shadow!

    i love this cream eyeshadow! you only need a teensy bit and it is absolutely gorgeous. I have it in whipped, a shimmery cream, and it's perfect for highlighting my brow bone or just going straight on my lid. I've gotten compliments on this gorgeous shadow and it has awesome staying power. definitely recommend it!

    Tarte Natural Cheek Stain

    i'm tipsy with delight over this stain ;)

    So if you couldn't already tell, I got this stain in the shade tipsy. It smells fantastic and glides on well. Although it feels a little sticky initially, after rubbing it in with circular motions (just a little) over my cheeks, it felt smooth and not sticky at all. It looked very bright on my light olive skin, but once I gave it a couple of minutes to settle in, it looked flattering and like a natural flush. Honestly, I liked this blush a lot more than I did the famous Nars Or**sm blush, so if you are trying to decide between the two just go with this one. I recommend tipsy for anyone with light/medium colored skin. Only downside: when I put it on too soon after applying foundation, it rubs the foundation right off. Make sure you give your foundation time to set first- ideally, put powder on top of your foundation first. Bottom line- at $30, this is a good product which will definitely last me for at least half a year. I think it's a worthy investment!

  • Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Stick

    I bought this Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Stick in Milan, and I'm absolutely in love with it. It is fairly easy to apply (but try to avoid breaking off the pointed tip!) and it will last me FOREVER. It's true that it is very pricey, but I think it's well worth the money. I'm olive skinned/tanned, and the Milan shade is exactly my lip color amped up a notch or two. It's deliciously tingly and tastes a little bit minty once you put it on, and makes my lips full and gorgeous. WARNING: If your lips are at all dry or chapped you'll be able to see it with this lipstick! It is not particularly moisturizing or smoothing, so it will get all crumbly if your lips aren't very nice and moisturized. I put a balm underneath it first and then it goes on like a dream. XOXO

  • Biore Steam Activated Cleanser

    Biore Steam Activated Cleanser

    Biore Steam Cleanser = 9 stars!

    So I bought this cleanser cause I'm a bit of a sucker for fancy cleansers and makeup. I used to use Cetaphil (and still use it in the mornings) but Cetaphil is a bit too gentle of a cleanser for me to use by itself and so it led to breakouts. Now that I use Biore my breakouts are a lot more under control; it has a really great tingly feeling, is totally easy to use, and my skin feels really clean, refreshed, and soft (not tight!) after rinsing off the cleanser. I highly reccommend this easy-to-use cleanser to everyone!!

  • EOS Smooth Sphere Lip Balm
    10.0

    EOS Smooth Sphere Lip Balm

    eos is amazing.

    So when I first picked this up randomly in Walgreens, I had NO idea it would be so amazing. There were three flavors- the green cantalope, red (idk what it is) and yellow lemon. I took the lemon and my friend took the green and red. It is AMAZING. Not only does it smell good and doesn't taste horrible if you accidentally swallow some, it is great for your lips and leaves them feeling refreshed and moisturized. Unlike Kiehl's Lip Balm (which i love, but it's just not on the same level!) it doesn't leave your lips feeling a little swollen and over moisturized if you leave it on all night (which is what I love to do). The low price and high quality make this balm one of my favorites! Plus, the odd shape is totally accessible and a big convo starter :)

  • Bourjois Effet 3D Lipgloss

    okay, so while you can only get this in france (as far as i know), it is on of the most AMAZING LIP GLOSSES EVER. not sticky with an unusual but effective applicator (plastic). i have it in rose (or eclat, as they say in france!) and it is AMAZING TIMES TEN. super flattering on any skin tone, and it totally makes my lips look lush and angelina jolie-worthy. it lasts for a few hours, and the packaging is slim and very euro-classy. definitely worth buying!

    usually i have problems with ponytails as i have a lot of flyaways, but this completely solved my problems. convenient size, easy to take on the go, and it doesn't feel sticky or heavy. completely amazing and completely worth it!
