  • Clinique Almost Lipstick
    5.0

    Clinique Almost Lipstick

    is it just me?

    everyone keeps commenting on how universally flattering the shade "black honey" is, but it was just "meh" for me - nothing spectacular and i think burt's bees tinted lip shimmer could easily provide the same results at a fraction of the cost.

  • Lancome Aqua Fusion Teinte
    8.0

    Lancome Aqua Fusion Teinte

    moisturizing and just the right amount of coverage

    i prefer not to wear foundation because it can feel too heavy or i worry that it will start to cake, slip and slide...but i realize that my skin is nowhere near perfect and could use some help. this tinted moisturizer is perfect - just the sheerest bit of coverage to even my skin out, plus SPF. it may not be as skin quenching as other moisturizers (i occasionally have a few dry patches) but that's easily fixable by smoothing on a layer of regular moisturizer first.

  • Smashbox Artificial Light Luminizing Lotion

    i picked up the tokidoki limited edition of smashbox's artificial light luminizing lotion, in part due the promise of a glowing effect and in part due to the cutsey packaging! i'm not completely sold that it's very effective at lightening dark circles or reducing the appearance of wrinkles, but when mixed in with my tinted moisturizer, the thin liquid does add a bit of shimmer - but not overwhelmingly so. it gives my skin a subtle glow and seems to minimize my pores; so while fine lines may still be visible, overall appearance is improved.

  • Revlon Lipglide
    10.0

    Revlon Lipglide

    the best of both worlds!

    all the color and staying power of a lipstick with all the shininess of a gloss! but minus the drying effect of lipstick and minus the stickness of gloss. i love how this glides on so smoothly, letting you control how much you put on; it leaves my lips so bright and shiny - and looking full too! rum radiance is my fave...

  • Lancome Dual Finish Versatile Powder Makeup

    before i switched my makeup routine in preference of a more natural "dewy" look (via tinted moisturizer), i used this powder to achieve a perfect matte look (in lieu of foundation). the coverage was great - not too heavy, just enough to even out my skin tone. long lasting, except on my t-zone. if i need to look extra special (e.g. more made up than usual!), i'll go back to this...

  • Lancome Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover
    6.0

    Lancome Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover

    effectively removes eye makeup

    but am i the only one who thinks it DOES feel a bit greasy? maybe i'm overly sensitive, but i'd prefer not to feel a trace of anything, makeup or cleanser, left on my eyes before i hit the sack. plus the opening on the bottle's too big - a little bit goes a long way and i always end up saturating cotton balls with way more than i need...

  • Lancome Photogenic Sheer Loose Powder
    5.0

    Lancome Photogenic Sheer Loose Powder

    much lighter than dual finish powder

    provides a more natural look with its lighter, almost sheer coverage - yet, it can still settle into fine lines and doesn't hide imperfections well (e.g. pores can actually become emphasized). i still use it every now and then just to touch up my t-zone but that's about it...

  • Lancome Flextencils Full Extension Curving Mascara

    the price point is more than i'd like to dish out for mascara, but an occasional splurge is worth it - probably my second favorite curling mascara. it works on my long but straight lashes; obviously it can't duplicate the effect of a curler, but it lifts my lashes enough to open up and brighten my eyes! my lashes are a little stiffer and thicker when i used this vs. my drugstore (and #1) brand.

  • Benefit Benetint
    6.0

    Benefit Benetint

    i used to use this...

    and the bottle lasted forever. it gave a nice healthy glow on the cheeks, but didn't do it for me as a lip stain - i prefer a lip balmy/glossy feel for the lips (this just felt too drying, didn't apply evenly, etc.). and i got tired of having red-tinged finger tips!

  • Burt's Bees Marshmallow Vanishing Creme

    this creme looked and smelled promising - until i put it on my face. it did not "vanish" as promised or sink in to moisturize my skin; it just left a sticky, greasy layer i immediately washed off.
