  • BareMinerals All-Over Face Color

    I've never been a fan of mineral makeup, and a sample of this powder did nothing to change my mind. It has some sparkle to it, and gave my skin a pinkish cast. Even with the lightest of applications, you could tell I was wearing powder.

  • Bourjois Invisible Lip Liner

    Bourjois Invisible Lip Liner

    Hurts more than it helps

    I consider the $5 I spent on this (I rummaged it out of an Ulta clearance bin) to be $4.99 too much. The pointy tip makes it easy to outline your lips with, but my lipstick bled and smeared around the edges worse than it does without lip liner.

  • Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited

    Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited

    Matte is awesome, creme is not

    The pop-art quality of the lucite container, raspberry scent, and the thoughtful slant of the lipstick, which facilitates a perfect application, are impressive. However, the creme formulation lipstick is one of the most short-lived I have ever used. It lasts a few minutes at most. I have to reapply constantly when I wear it, which is awful because you get very little product for the appalling sum of $23. The matte formulation, on the other hand, is perfection. All of the colors are gorgeous, and the silken formula clings to lips with a flawless matte finish of excellent color payoff. And it lasts for hours.

  • L'Oreal Paris Vive Pro Hydra Gloss Moisturizing Shampoo

    It's been a long time since I bought a drugstore shampoo. I've been indulging in the prestige brands since well before college. A recent round of layoffs at my office had me spooked, so I bought this instead of the Kiehl's product I'd had my eye on. I'm glad I did! You get so much product for your money, and this stuff lathers up great and is free of Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and silicones, two ingredients that do terrible things to my dry, fine, color-treated hair. I've been so pleased with how my hair looks and feels after using this product. I'll be picking up another bottle when my current one runs out.

  • MAC Nail Lacquer

    There's nothing special about the formula of MAC's polishes. In general, they require 1 -3 coats, dry quickly, and don't chip for a few days. What's really special about these little beauties is the colors. The shades are always modern, unique, and right on trend. When I buy a MAC polish, I do so because there aren't any dupes even remotely close. The packaging is great, too. The caps are big and rubbery, making cracking them open quick and easy, even when it's glued down with dried polish.

  • MAC Lustreglass
    9.0

    MAC Lustreglass

    My favorite MAC lip gloss

    Lustreglass is my favorite of MAC's lip glosses. The colors are sheer without being poorly pigmented, so they look great on their own or can really transform the look of a lipstick you're getting bored with. The formula is super duper shiny and so thick it survived a shower. I wish MAC would come out with a broader color selection and include more Lustreglasses in its LE collections.

  • Nars Lip Gloss
    8.0

    Nars Lip Gloss

    A lipstick in gloss's clothing

    The coverage this lip gloss provides is fantastic. Although I love the look of gloss, but my lips are very pigmented so the gloss's color doesn't show up well. Nars glosses go on thick and shiny, providing opaque or near-opaque coverage that makes for a great color pay-off. The thick formula also makes for long wear.

  • MAC 239 Eye Shader Brush

    This little workhorse of a brush is all you really need to achieve a flawless eye look. It has the usual dense bristles and soft feel that make for a great brush, but what makes the 239 really special is it's shape. I use it to line my lower lashes, highlight my brow bone, and apply and blend multiple shadows (cream or powder) all over my eye. It's my right hand and I love it.

  • MAC 182 Buffer Brush
    10.0

    MAC 182 Buffer Brush

    Crown jewel

    The 182 is the crown jewel in MAC's famous line of brushes. I use it to apply powder products, contour, and buff, and my face doesn't look complete till I've given it a rub-down with this. Then it looks smooth and natural, no matter how much color I've plastered on. The super dense bristles are baby bunny-soft, and shedding is a non-issue. The short, chunky handle feels good in your hand. Yes, it's expensive. But if you take good care of it, it will last a lifetime.

  • Clinique Supermoisture Makeup

    I have very pale skin, and have grown accustomed to automatically purchasing the lightest shade available for any given foundation, concealer, or powder. So color me impressed that I had to try on three colors to find the right one, and that the right one was the second lightest option. Yeah, Supermoisture's color selection is that good. It conceals blotchiness on my cheeks and nose (mostly) and has a dewy finish. You can't tell I'm wearing makeup. The one thing this product can't handle is my nose's flakiness. Rather than adding moisture, this product sticks to the little bits of flaked skin, making them even more obvious. I usually find I need to redo my nose (moisturizer, foundation, concealer) around lunch because this stuff has gone all dry and splotchy on me.
