  • Make Up For Ever Mat Bronze Suntan Powder

    I have light-medium neutral-warm skin and got this in #2 - it looks much darker in the pan than the actual payoff of colour on my skin. I'm very pleased with this bronzer - it's indeed matte and although it's sheer, it seems to stay on well even through muggy, humid days. A hit of this and I look sun-kissed, not oompa-loompa orange and sparkly. The only odd thing is that it comes with a powder puff - not sure who would use this unless it matches your skin tone exactly and you were using it as a finishing powder? I use a big, fluffy powder brush and lightly dust it on where the sun would hit. After sampling 3,000 bronzers in Sephora - this was my pick!

    Can not recommend this based on the terrible brush design - after a few uses it splays to the point that you might as well be putting on lip gloss with a dish scrubber. Horrible. If it wasn't for the brush, this would be a decent option for a sticky gloss with several lovely colours.

    Chanel JC Powder Blush

    I realize these are beloved blushes to many, but for me they were just OK. They have a strong scent [Rose?] that I find a bit cloying and many have sparkle which to me looks unnatural. Best feature is by far the sexy packaging--otherwise a very mediocre, over-priced blush.

    Holy Grail of Eyeliner Brushes

    Love this brush for powder eyeliner like no other. It's small, compact head is soft but firm enough to allow for very precise placement close to lashes. You can also blend and soften without colour flying or falling below the eyes. Nothing beats it!

  • MAC Lip Pencil

    I've tried a lot of lip liners and WHIRL is my hands-down favorite...no matter how often I stray, I'll always come back to this one. It's a pink-based nude that perfectly matches my lips and never looks orange [mac spice!], or too brown [chanel nude.]

  • Wet n Wild Color Icon Lipliner

    Tried the famous 666 nude, go-with-all lip liner - for 99 cents it's practically disposable - found it to be just OK. The texture is dry, it pulls rather than gliding smoothly onto lips, and the colour is a bit dark/brown-based to be the perfect nude for me. Sticking to MAC Whirl.

  • Maybelline New York Great Lash Washable Mascara

    Over-hyped, gloppy, smeary, gunky stuff that's hardly worth the raves it gets from Allure, perhaps they're justifying the advertising dollars?...tossed it straight into the trash. There are so many drugstore mascaras that do a better job lengthening + thickening without wet clumps, so why bother with this one?

    Cream Shaper in Chocolate Lustre

    I have bought the Chocolate Lustre Cream Shaper many times. The price is very reasonable, the color is a rich brown that looks great with dark brown eyes [the so-called frost in this doesn't show once it's on] and it lasts fairly well without smudging. The only downside is that this pencil is so soft it needs frequent sharpening, and because of this I go through them very quickly.

    High Precision Retouch

    Before you plunk down approx. 35 smackaroos for this, make sure to try it and find out if the limited colour selection works for you. The pros: a fine tip brush paints on the most delicate amount of this liquidy smooth concealer - it doesn't cover major dark circles but will blend in nicely and doesn't appear overly drying or settle into fine lines. The cons: tiny amount for the price, limited colour selection, limited coverage.

  • Giorgio Armani Smooth Silk Eye Pencil

    These are very smooth and creamy, they go on beautifully but the creamy texture can be prone to slight smudging. Are they worth the price? If you find a colour you love, yes. Otherwise - similar pencils can be had for about half the money - hello Clinique Cream Shaper.
