I’d love to see more inspiration from Disney villains, and I’d prefer to see it tied to a mid-to-high-end brand, like Urban Decay, who I think could do a good job with colors, textures, and not be limited by certain colors.
Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour ($32.00 for 0.09 oz.) is supposed to be a “buildable, lightweight lipstick” with an “ultra-luminous” finish. They’re a good fit for someone who likes sheerer, buildable coverage in a traditional shade range. Some shades seem rather similar applied, so it is useful to swatch them in person or to only choose only one from a color family to ensure versatility in your stash. They are scented with the La Petite Robe Noire fragrance, which is sweet, fruity, and floral, and it is definitely noticeable applied (it stops registering to my nose after an hour or two), and I personally got a soapy, sweet taste at times while wearing them.
Here’s a look at the top 10 products reviewed in the last week, plus a summary of how many products and brands were reviewed and a break out of ratings! 🙂
My faves for the week: I’m really digging the Marc Jacobs Air Blush formula overall, as I’m a huge fan of satiny/luminous blushes! Also, I’m still marveling over the long-wearing aspect of them. I was also pleasantly surprised that MAC’s Nordstrom C’est Chic palette was easy to use and could definitely work for a lot of neutral, matte eye looks, if one didn’t already have a good arsenal of neutrals in their stash.
What’s been in your rotation the most this week? What caught your eye?
Soft Brown is a muted, medium brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color coverage, though not fully opaque, with a soft, smooth, and blendable texture that applied well to bare skin.

BH Cosmetics Foil Eyes Eyeshadow Palette ($19.00 for 1.58 oz.) contains 28, metallic eyeshadows. I picked this up a couple of months ago, because it was getting a lot of buzz, and I’ve been really impressed by the quality overall. Only a few shades had issues, and they were fairly minor (slightly less pigmented, could apply better with primer or with a dampened brush). The majority of the eyeshadows were very pigmented, applied beautifully on bare skin, blended out easily, and lasted for seven to nine hours on me (without primer). As they are all shimmery, it may not work as well as an all-in-one-look palette, though. If you like your high-shimmer, metallic eyeshadows, it’s well worth checking out!
