    Bloom Cosmetics Bronzing Powder

    Bloom Cosmetics Bronzing Powder

    I love bronzers, and this bronzer is no exception. The price was great for the quality of this bronzer, and the compact is very nice as well. It applied nicely, didn't oxidize and turn a weird orange color after hours of wear. It lasted really well, I didn't have to touch it up, and it looked very natural, very nice product!

    Philosophy Eye Hope

    Philosophy Eye Hope

    I had really high hopes for this product. I have had some hit or miss results with Philosophy, but I read many reveiws, and they were mostly positive. apparently, this product just wasn't for me. It didn't burn or sting my eyes, but for the price, I really saw no results. It didn't seem to moisturise very well, did absolutely nothing for me. I did like the pump container, but the product tunnelled and I had to pound it on my sink so the disenser could dispense it. It is a very pricey product, but there are many other far less expensive products that provide better results.

  • Korres Lip Butter

    Korres Lip Butter

    Korres Natural Products Lip Butter

    I recently picked up the Korres Wild Rose Lip Butter at Ulta. I keep something on my lips at all times because they have a tendancy to become chapped and dry if I don't. I don't usually like potted lip products, but I use a brush with this and it works really well for me. It has no scent, it is delicately pigmented, the color is a really nice opaque rosy reddish color, it is very nice. It works well for me, it keeps my lips moist, has a natural but better than natural lip finish, it has a nice glossy finish. I feel it helps protect my lips, and it doesn't bleed or feather. It works really nicely under my lip stick, and my lips aren't chapped or dry when I use it. It seems to ward off the extremes in elements where I live, it is extremely hot in the summer and polar cold in the winter, and if I keep this on, my lips are nice. I find it isn't sticky or greasy, it feels as nice on as it works for me. It comes in many formulations so anyone could find a variety that would please them, it is a really nice product in my opinion.

  • Pixi Lip Glow Kit

    Pixi Lip Glow Kit

    I really liked the Pixi Gloss Palette so I picked this one up as well. This palette is more like lip stick rather than gloss, so I really liked it. It applies really creamy and has lasting power, moreso than the gloss palette. The colors are really pretty as well as nicely pigmented. I didn't find my touching it up all the time and I had no bleeding or feathering issues. I also have mixed a couple of colors to create a different color. The palette is nice and small and easily stowed in a hand bag, it's just a bit bigger than a credit card. The included brush isn't bad either. It's not the greatest, but it is decent enough to use.

    Pixi Gloss Kit

    Pixi Gloss Kit

    I was so pleased with the Pixi Eye Beauty Kit, I picked one of these up as well, and I am quite pleased that I did. The glosses are really nice, not terribly sticky, apply nicely with the nice brush included with the kit. They wear very well considering they are glosses and not lip stick. I found them to be a little longer lasting than an average gloss. The colors included in the palette I bought are very nicely coordinated, and when I am feeling a little adventurous, I mix a couple of the colors to create a new look. The palette is really nice, and it is really small so it takes up no room in your bag. The colors are nicely pigmented, and I had no bleeding or feathering issues. This is a great little collection for the money.

    Pixi Eye Beauty Kit

    I was really disappointed that Sephora stopped carrying this line, but now that Target carries the Pixi line, I am really happy. I have 2 of these palettes, Mango and Magic and I love them. They have such beautiful coordinated colors as well as a really nice concealer and eye shadow primer. The brushes are fantastic, unlike many other palettes that include some really crummy little brush that isn't really good. The size is wonderful too, they are a little bigger than a credit card, and fit nicely in any hand bag even the smallest evening bag. The shadows are very nicely pigmented, they are very workable, blendable, and buidable. They wear very well, after hours of wear, I had no creasing, smudging, or fading. I also experience very little to no fallout, they load nicely on a brush. I like these two I already own, I plan on picking up one or two more, I like them that well.

    Napoleon Perdis Re-Touch Skin Smoothing Cream

    I have been using Too Faced Wrinkle injection for a long time, and I ran out. I saw this at Target while shopping and it pretty much made the same claims. It was about the same price, and I thought I would save a trip to Sephora, so I picked it up. I like the tube, it applied nicely, but afetr just a short while, it actually seemed to emphasize the lines around my lips and eyes and it made my foundation coagulate into the small lines to the point when I tried to touch my cosmetics up, I just created a most horrible effect. I made my powder cake up and I had to just was my face and start all over. I was really disappointed, and I was not happy about paying what I did for this product because the performance was no where close to what I have experienced with Too Faced Wrinkle Injection. I have gone back to Too Faced Wrinkle Injection, and I am far more happy with the results from that than the Napoleon Perdis Re-Touch Smoothing Cream. It didn't perform very well and is an over priced product in my opinion.

    I have read many positive reviews about this concealer, and when I saw that Target now carries it, I decided to give it a shot. There weren't a whole lot of colors , so I picked the one up that was just a little lighter than my natural skin tone. I am a MAC NC 25. I prefer pot concealers because they are easier for me to use with my concealer brushes. it loaded on the brush very well, and it apllied nicely under my eyes, and it seemed to do a good job at first. I don't have horrible dark shadows under my eyes and this looked like it would work for me. After a few hours of wear tho, it seemed to oxidize into a weird peachy color, settled into my fine lines making them look far worse than they are, and it made my mascara on my bottom lashes smudge, I even set it with loose powder to prevent this. I know some people really like it, but I didn't find that it worked very well and it was over priced for the results I received. I think I will stick to my MAC and UD concealers.

    Manic Panic Glitter Powder Shadow

    If you like intense colored mixed with intense glitter effects this eye color is for you. Talk about impact! These are not for the faint of heart. You do have to be careful when loading your applicator or you may experience some fall out, I use a brush dampened with Visine, and I have also used them wet for a really intense eye liner. They are as silky as an extreme gitter shadow can be, but they aren't scratchy, they don't irritate my eyes either. They wear really well, and the pigment content is really high. If you are brave, and like to experiment with intense looks, these are just perfect! They are bold and very glamorous.

    Manic Panic Claw Colors Flat Nail Polish

    I always wonderd why no one ever made a matte nail color, then I found Manic Panic. I love the finish and the red is just spectacular. It wears really well, it doesn't stain my nails. I have even used a glossy top coat over it and it really looks nice glossy as well, it had a nice depth of color. It's funny how everyone is on the matte nail color band wagon now, Manic Panic are truly pioneers!
