Flamepoint

Reviewed on November 12, 2013

For anyone looking for a nice RED eyeshadow, and I do mean pure red, not purple red, slightly orange red, brown based red, no, RED, this is the shadow! Flamepoint is a wonderfully pigmented shade of red! The color is vibrant, as are all of Sugarpills, and a little really does go a loooonnnnggg way. These shadows pack a punch and this one is most…

Cold Chemistry
Sugarpill

Reviewed on November 12, 2013

So I went on a bit of a Sugarpill buying spree/kick and this was apart of said kick, I most definitely do not regret it! I always worry about darker colors on my dark skin (1R13 on Sephora's color IQ scale) but these still pop and look vibrant!

Magenta
MAC

Reviewed on May 18, 2013

Love this lip liner! It goes on easily and the color is very vibrant. I feel that as a dark skinned woman it helps with those brighter pinks I had no real business buying (Candy Yum Yum for example) and bringing them down to a level that works for my skin and makes the colors more wearable opposed to 'Barbie'. And while there's nothing wrong with…

RiRi Woo
MAC

Reviewed on May 18, 2013

This was an impulse buy for me, I got a text on my phone from MAC saying it was available and just snatched it up. I'm glad I did. I don't own Ruby Woo so I can't do a comparison, but I do love this color. It's a nice, cool tone red that would work well on a lot of skin tones. I'm not sure if it's the finishing powder that I use or the lipstick…

Veil Mineral Primer SPF 15
Hourglass

Reviewed on May 18, 2013

So this was the first facial primer I had ever bought after watching a young lady on youtube that I adore use it, and I wasn't disappointed. Imagine Johnson and Johnson baby lotion but smoother, lighter, and just wonderful feeling on the skin. It spreads easily and I only use a little bit at a time. I purchased the smaller bottle as Sephora, but…

HD Powder
Make Up For Ever

Reviewed on May 3, 2013

So I was a little skeptical at first as I had never ordered a finish powder before, but I heard that it was good for making makeup set and seem less shiny when you use foundation. Unsure on what brand to get I went to Sephora.com, looked up what the best was, and found this stuff. I found it and was a little worried as it was a white powder and…

Blush
NYX

Reviewed on May 3, 2013

Really awesome lipstick for a really good price! I picked this up to experiment with pink lipstick for my skin tone (I was and still kinda am clueless) and I like the color a lot. It's not to frosty and not super bright, but it is very springy and I adore it.

Milk
NYX

Reviewed on May 3, 2013

I love this base, it makes the colors that I wear pop so much more. The only, only, only issue I have is with ONE tube of the milk that I have that seems like it melted or something (which is weird as it was in a cool place) and applied on my eyes weird, and creased after. The other three or four tubes I have are fine, so I"m thinking it was just…

Fierce & Tangy
Maybelline

Reviewed on May 2, 2013

I use this product for more of a base then I do an actual eyeshadow. Personally, it's great as a base, but I'm not sure how much I would like it as a shadow. While it is easy to apply it doesn't seem like it would stay or look as great as it could as a stand alone eyeshadow.

Lush Life
MAC

Reviewed on May 2, 2013

I have this thing about plum tone reds, or purple or plum toned anything really, so I had to get this and I most definitely wasn't disappointed. This is a wonderfully rich color and definitely holds up to its title of moisturizing, which is a real plus in my book.

They're Real! Mascara
Benefit

Reviewed on May 2, 2013

So this is hands down the best mascara that I own, Tate's Lights, Camera, Mascara coming in as a close second. This mascara is one of the best I have ever used. You can feel each eyelash separating and becoming thicker as you apply the mascara. It leaves your eyelashes looking fuller by the time you're done applying no questions asked.

Everyday Diva
MAC

Reviewed on May 2, 2013

So I will admit, I do wear this shade when I'm having my diva days, but it's in the name so hey, who can blame me? This most definitely what I call a 'hollywood' shade of red. The color is bright compared to Cockney, but that's what makes the two stand apart in the MAC red family. One is more hollywood and the other more sultry, in my opinion.…

Sounds Like Noise
MAC

Reviewed on May 2, 2013

I will admit, it is a little dry to the lips to wear, but it goes on smooth, which I can appreciate. It is a hard color to wear though. I'm still attempting to find a lipliner, as I think I've found a gloss, that will help tone down the color just a few shades or make it a little more wearable then it is right now. Because putting it by itself on…

Fuchsia Shock
Too Faced

Reviewed on May 2, 2013

It reminds me of MAC's Girl About Town but a tad bit lighter and a lot more moisturizing. This was my first lipstick purchase from Too Faced so I wasn't sure what to expect, but when I first started to put it on I knew it was a keeper. It just felt so smooth and moisturizing against my lips, I didn't even need a primer (but of course would…

Stiletto Red
Too Faced

Reviewed on May 2, 2013

I love this shade of red, I bought it because it reminds of of MAC's Cockney shade but this is much more moisturizing. It lasts a super long time and stays vibrant throughout the day, I love love love it. This was the second lip color that I purchased from Too Faced and I will definitely buy more in the future.

Original
Urban Decay

Reviewed on May 2, 2013

So I originally tried this when I got my Naked Palette and I've been hooked ever since. I just recently bought the full tube and although it is pricey I'm 100% ok with that. I love the stuff and will continue to buy it for as long as I wear eyeshadow.

Soft Ochre
MAC

Reviewed on May 2, 2013

So I've never used any paint pot aside from this, and I've only used this as a makeup base as it shows up a really nice light tan color on my skin, but I love it. This paired with my Urban Decay primer potion and no makeup is coming off of my eyes or creasing for the next 24 hours.

Siss
MAC

Reviewed on May 2, 2013

This is one of those lipsticks that I would never wear on it's own, it just doesn't suit my skintone. It's really to light, BUT paired with the right lipgloss this becomes a wonderful shade. I pair it with Nymphette from MAC and a few colors from the Too Faced lipgloss line and it's absolutely wonderful.

Girl About Town

Wonderful shade of pink from MAC. It's bright, really fun, and can work on just about any skin tone in my opinion. Not to mention it lasts! I pair it with the Magenta lipliner when I want to make it a tad darker depending on the look I'm going for, but it's still gorgeous.

So for women of color out there that fall into the dark range I will say this: Lip liner is your BEST friend with this lipstick. Your best friend ever. Putting it on by itself I look crazy and like I got into a fight with my train case and lost, badly, but adding a lip liner (Silly from MAC if you want more pink, Nightmoth from MAC for a vampire…

So I was looking for a purple that was a true purple, no red undertones, no pink undertones, but purple. A nice, wearable, shade of purple. And I'm super happy to say that this is it! I love this shade from MAC, it's great and not dry like some of their other lipsticks that I've tried.

This was my first NARS blush and I love it. The young lady at the store pretty much told me this is Orgasm for women of color and well, I'm ok with that. I looove this blush and cant wait to purchase more NARS in the future.
