  • Dior Pure Poison Eau de Parfum

    I agree with the girl who said this fragrance is 'royal'. Idk about pretentious, but this is what I imagine Paris to smell like - sophisticated, refined, subtle floral, and stylishly composed. This is my special occasion fragrance, I don't wear it daily because I'm afraid of running out. It's pricey but I'll probably end up buying it again. Of course there's never any sales or deals on this perfume, because it's THAT good and it doesn't need the promotion!

    c. Booth Honey Almond Body Butter

    Nice on the Surface

    This jar of body butter is huge and will probably last forever. At first use it seems to get the job well done, covers up scaly and dry patches on the skin and smells really nice. But I've noticed that it kind of SITS on top of the skin. I've used this a lot as a hand cream and whenever I go to wash my hands, either minutes or hours later, I always get the sensation that I'm washing my hands of this stuff that's sitting on top of them. This doesn't really MOISTURIZE, because you have to keep reapplying it over and over. A true hydration product would dissipate into the skin and give you long-term moisturization, meanwhile this just kind of acts like a barrier against air. NOt impressed with the ingredients either - last time I checked parabens, triethanolamine, dimethicone, tetrasodium EDTA and mineral oil are terrible and toxic to the skin. Don't be attracted to the HONEY/ALMOND in the title either - you're better off just mixing some almond oil with raw honey and putting that on top of your skin, with BETTER results!

  • Lancome Dual Finish Versatile Powder Makeup

    I remember this powder as extremely soft, velvety and flawless. I used a big fluffy brush to apply it all over my face and the effect was even, soft and perfect for day. I left this powder behind when I moved on to organic products only, but I still haven't found anything that would give me a comparable coverage and feel.

  • Kevyn Aucoin Beauty The Solid Foundation

    This is good for touchups on the go, or if you know you have to put on makeup somewhere not at home, where you're not the most comfortable doing it. It's a few quick swipes and you can blend with your hand. It IS kind of like a soild though, so once you put some effort into pressing down and swiping your face with it, you'll get a decent amount of foundation, which means having to blend it FAST, otherwise it will kind of stay there and look cakey. This is really my last resort type of foundation. If I have time and if I'm at home I'd rather use something foolproof and take my time with it.

  • Kevyn Aucoin Beauty Liquid Cyber Lip
    6.0

    Kevyn Aucoin Beauty Liquid Cyber Lip

    The name is more impressive than the quality

    LIke the title says, LIQUID CYBER LIP makes you think of an out of this world fantastic magic lip look, so I think any gloss would disappoint with an overhyped title like that. But this one more so. I have the color Tenda Pink, it's a pale shimmery vanilla color. The effect is actually very natural and you can probably layer it over lipstick too, but since it's a vanilla lip gloss I would imagine the tube would get muddied up pretty fast if I smudged the wand on top of different colors all the time. Overall, kinda expensive for an average gloss.

  • LORAC Lip Polish

    I do agree it's hard to control application with this packaging; but it's amusing with their play on nail polish. Nobody believes me when I show this that it's actually a lip product (haha). The shimmer and shine is amazing, it's definitely an evening gloss for me. The color Sizzle is a nice raspberry shine and it smells great too.

  • Juice Beauty Correcting Concealer

    Covers up bluish purple undereye circles nicely. Has somewhat of a liquidy consistency and was difficult for me to blend with my hands, but good with a concealer brush. I don't recommend this when you know you're going to be crying later, because it tends to run and streak a little bit, probably because it's so watery. Other concealers tend to hold up better with that. And it is organic so don't store this for months/years at a time because it will eventually start to smell bad, especially if you open it right away. Otherwise no complaints!

  • Juice Beauty Perfecting Foundation

    Loved this foundation! Good choice for natural liquid foundation (the powder mineral ones are too drying in the winter). Covers up red cheeks nicely, easy to blend, and good color match for fair skin with pink undertones.

  • NYX Cosmetics NYX Matte Lipstick

    I got this lipstick originally in the NYX Back to the 60s Set that came with liquid liner and mascara (seems to be discontinued now). The lip color is HIPPIE CHIC, it's a light peachy pink. Well they didn't lie about the MATTE part. It's VERY matte to the point that it accentuates every line in your lips. I'd use this more for a costume look for Halloween rather than a regular makeup look. NYX used this color in their Back to the 60s set therefore it's a good fit for a retro look or something, but this is def not to be used for the "natural" look. Looks great in the summer with bronzy skin, but it did dry out my lips, even when I put lip balm underneath.

  • NYX Cosmetics NYX Winter in Moscow

    I agree with the previous post that the palette does seem to waste space on extremely similar shades; maybe they were trying to please everybody's skin tone with this set and offer the entire shade selection. THe glosses in the set I don't really care for, they are way too sticky for me. The blushes are beautiful and very pigmented. The shadows themselves can be worn alone or blended together. Way too much black than I'll ever need though. I do reach for this though as the first thing that comes to mind when I go out for evening looks.
