MAC Full Lash Curler Review & Photos

MAC Full Lash Curler ($20.00) is easy-to-use, doesn’t pinch, and yields a soft, natural curl that stays. I’ve been using this for the past few weeks when I’ve gone to curl my lashes, and I think it’s very comparable to shu uemura’s curler in shape, feel, and use. If you have smaller eyes, you might consider MAC’s Half Lash Curler. This particular version of the curler is all black, because it is/was part of the Carine Roitfeld collection. I think the all-black coloring makes it look rather sleek (and reminiscent of Chanel’s). It came with one additional curling pad.

Dior Lady (039) Diorific Lipstick

Dior Lady (039) Diorific Lipstick ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) is lightened coral-red with a natural sheen. And yes, it does look a lot like Dior Diva, which is just slightly darker. Edward Bess Midnight Bloom is redder. Guerlain Habit Rouge is darker. Guerlain Rouge Sensuel is sheerer and a smidgen lighter. MAC Cockney has golden shimmer. Chanel Cambon is a bit less warm.

Too Faced Fantasy Island Eyeshadow Duo

Too Faced Fantasy Island Eyeshadow Duo ($17.00 for 0.08 oz.) is described as “peacock” and “gilded lime.”  I picked up several of Too Faced’s duos when they were on sale at HauteLook, and while they’re not quite as deeply discounted, they are on sale on Too Faced right now.

NARS 413BLKR Velvet Matte Lip Pencil

NARS 413BLKR Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($24.00 for 0.086 oz.) is described as a “fuchsia.” It’s a vibrant fuchsia-red with the barest flecks of iridescent blue sparkle that just peek through the color. Tom Ford Aphrodisiac is less matte and has no sparkle. MAC Moxie is similar, but it is completely matte and less blue-based. Illamasqua Atomic is extremely comparable–it even has the iridescent shimmer; it appears to have more of it.

Wet ‘n’ Wild Grew Up in Cobalt-imore Nail Lacquer

Wet ‘n’ Wild Grew Up in Cobalt-imore Nail Lacquer ($3.99 for 0.29 fl. oz.) is a rich, medium-dark navy blue with a mega-sized dose of shimmer in light blue, blue, and silver. The only color that really came to mind was Zoya Twila, which is really quite different–it has horizontal bar glitter, so they don’t really look alike, but they had a similar depth of blue.
