    Last beauty product you finished? My Clinique Bottom Lash mascara dried up and I finished a bottle of Seche Vite
    Last beauty product you bought? I just bought two of the new NARS Nordstrom exclusive blushes-Love and Final Cut and I can’t wait for them to get here! Still debating on New Attitude since I heard it’s very close to Tarte Dollface
    Last beauty product you were disappointed with? Revlon Whipped foundation. I used to really like it, but I guess my Sahara Desert of a face doesn’t like it in winter. Not a fan anymore. I’m wearing it today and I took so cakey :(

    Last beauty product you finished? Estee Lauder Matte Primer. I am about 1-2 uses away from finishing the Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Cover foundation but I can’t use it right now due to winter dryness. I also have hit major pan on my MSFN.
    Last beauty product you bought? I am waiting for my bottle of Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow foundation to arrive. I have a ton of foundation but pretty much everything is geared towards oily skin. My skin is very dry right now, so none of my foundations is working for me.
    Last beauty product you were disappointed with? A Mica Beauty lip balm that came in my ipsy bag. It’s actually a nice color but not hydrating at all. I am dealing with awful chapped lips right now and was hoping this would work for me, but it doesn’t. I think the only tinted balm that works really well as a lip color and a balm is the Fresh lip balm. So $$$ but so worth it.

    Last beauty product you bought? Nars blush duo in Oasis/Laguna and Nars blush in Torrid w/ a xmas gift card! :)
    Last beauty product you were disappointed with? I love my Naked 3 palette, with the exception of the shade Dust. It’s way too flaky and literally poofs into dusty fallout all over the face. It’s such a shame since it’s a lovely color!

    Last beauty product I finished: Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Amande. Love it.
    Last beauty product I bought: Mac eyeliner brush 210.
    Last beauty product you were disappointed with: Buxom serial kisser collection. The lipsticks are cute, but they are very soft in the container and some (centerfold) are very sheer. I use it with other lipsticks.

    1st runner up: YSL Rouge Pur Couture lipstick #53 in Beige Promenade. I love the lipstick but the smell is so strong I can’t stand wearing it.

    • Wow I had no problem with the lipstick tubes from the buxom set. Mine seem very study and so so pigmented. I’m sorry you didn’t have a better experience with it.

    Last beauty product you were disappointed with? NARS Casino bronzer. It did not show up on my skintone :( I do mix it with Sin blush though to try to get some use out of it. I got the duo for Christmas.

  16. -Your skin tone/coloring: Very fair, neutral.
    -Last beauty product you finished? Stila eyeshadow in Chinois- it’s a matte that matches my skin color reasonably well, so I use it almost every day for blending.
    -Last beauty product you bought? UD Revolution Lipstick in Bang. I adore it!
    -Last beauty product you were disappointed with? Naked 3. The more I use it, the more I like it, and the quality is fantastic, but some of the lighter colors are too warm for me without seriously balancing them with something else. Naked 3 has really made me appreciate Naked 2!

    Last beauty product you were disappointed with? Scandal eyes creme eyeshadow. Little muddy in color, tough to blend as it goes patchy but will get use out of it as an eyehadow base. It just cant stand alone IMO.

    Last beauty product you bought? New MAC Viva Glam lipstick and gloss. Goes to a good cause so I never feel let down with it.
    Last beauty product you were disappointed with? It’s been a while since I tend to wait for reviews. Maybelline’s Deepest Cherry may be closest. It’s not overly disappointing, and I have no idea if it was just the tube I received, but I struggle to apply it without a patchy result.

    Last beauty product you were disappointed with?
    A YSL mascara – I absolutely loved the mascara itself, but it went off (spectacularly so) way too quickly. Since I got it in a set, I suspect it may already have been quite old, however! Still, at ~$70 a pop for the mascara alone, I’m hesitant to try again!

    ■Last beauty product you bought? Guerlain Rouge G Grace. Gorgeous.
    ■Last beauty product you were disappointed with? Maybelline Full&Soft mascara. It didn’t last on my lashes. Left dark fallout under eyes, and melted at first contact with a hint of moisture, stinging my eyes like a mf.

    • I just thought of two other fails:
      Paul Mitchell Smooth Shampoo: my hair never curled so much although It’s a straithening shampoo and I just have a wave.
      MAC Foundations: tried 3 formulas and they accentuate pores I didn’t even know I Bad.

    Last beauty product you finished? MUFE Face and Body foundation
    Last beauty product you bought? Smashbox Full Exposure palette
    Last beauty product you were disappointed with? Guerlain Crazy Meteorites Radiance Powder. Got such great reviews and didn’t do much for my combo skin!

  27. Your skin tone/coloring: Very fair, neutral leaning a tad warm.
    Last beauty product you finished? MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Light. That’s the second one of them that I’ve used up. Adds a tiny bit of colour to my face without it looking weird/yellow!
    Last beauty product you bought? I bought a few things at the same time – Chanel Illusion D’Ombre in Illusoire, Guerlain Meteorites in 02 Clair, Guerlain Rouge G in Gigi, Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids lipstick in Shocking Coral and Neon Red and, if it counts, Lolita Lempicka Elle L’Aime Eau de Parfum.
    Last beauty product you were disappointed with? Avon Glimmerstick Diamonds eyeliner in Black Ice. It looked as though it should have been full of glitter but there’s barely any shimmer to it let alone glitter. Looks like a regular black eyeliner when applied. I love the SuperShock gel eyeliner pencils from Avon so I wanted to give the Glimmerstick a go but it was a fail!

  30. Skin tone: fair, cool-toned
    Last beauty product I finished: probably Clarins Super Restorative Day Cream (the one without the SPF)
    The last beauty product I bought: Marcelle CC Cream
    The last beauty product I was disappointed with: is one I bought at the same time as the CC cream and it’s Maybelline’s Barely Branded Colour Tattoo cream eye shadow. It’s more yellow than it looked when I tried to ascertain the colour through the thick glass of the jar. And it’s really METALLIC (I should have read and heeded the “Metal” in the name). It’s just a lot more shiny than I like

  31. Your skin tone/coloring: Fair and neutral/ cool, black hair, blue eyes
    Last beauty product you finished? Nuxe Reve de Miel lip balm, for about the fourteenth time.
    Last beauty product you bought? Chanel Diapason and Chamade from the Spring collection
    Last beauty product you were disappointed with? Guerlain Reflex Rouge Automatique. It’s a pretty colour, but the lasting power is poor and it settles into lip lines. Not what I’ve come to expect from Guerlain!

    –Disappointing: Batiste Dry Shampoo in Dark Brown. This may work for someone with both dark brown hair AND dark brown skin (and dark brown clothing and furniture and towels).

    Last beauty product I was disappointed in: Nivea lip balm in olive oil and lemon. It smelled and tasted like super strong perfume. And not the good kind.

    Last beauty product you bought? Illamasqua rich liquid foundation in 115-perfect colour! That is the first foundation I have ever bought that is fair enough for me to not mix-a little white might help, but is not absolutely necessary (as in leaving it as is will not frighten others with tone differences).

    Last beauty product you were disappointed with? Kat Von D Beethoven palette. To be fair, it came broken, but the pigmentation was so terrible, I would not have kept it anyway.

      MUFE HD in N128, Nars Mekong, Burberry Sheer e/s in Midnight Brown, and some Sephora brushes
      Actually disappointed in Nars Lhasa. Heresy, I know but it’s just “meh” on me and just passable in formulation. I may just use it to line the lower lid.

        • Avatar of Veronica VeronicaV

          Thank you! And an update. :) I have been pouring over your blog and I tried patting on the Lhasa, and I wore it to work. I recently moved and you know how lighting is everything? Inside the house, it’s ok. Serviceable. I hopped in my car and during the drive, I flipped the visor down (really quick :P) and Whoa! My eyes were a lit taupey loveliness. So now, latest disappointment? I caved in and tried NYX Mega Shine gloss. I can say that they don’t leave my lips crispy, which is pretty good since so far, only BB and MAC works for me, but my lips are too heavily pigmented and unless I try other colors, it’s a no go. I tried Smokey Look, Naturel, and Sweet Heart. I don’t like the formulation enough to keep trying, so I’m just going to get some new MAC and BB. I am out. Completely out! I’m out of most everything and what I have now, is so old that I have to try everything again. Even my BB shadows are in the round shape. My wallet is going to be crying soon. This is such fun, thank you. It’s been so long since I have bought things that even your posts from 2009 are working for me! :P I don’t even have old MAC neutrals that I don’t use enough, or a single UD Naked. You should see me with the list I have going. I need a little vial to collect The Tears I Have Shed for LEs I Have Missed—all new finds for me, that are sometimes years passed. Oh, how I coveted the EL Violet Underground, the Dior Bonne Étoile, the Guerlain Turandot…………. I need a tissue again.

          • Aww!! :) Thank you so much for taking the time to read through posts, and I’m so happy that they’re helping you discover new products to love! Hopefully we’ll see more greatness like Bonne Etoile and Turandot this year.

            Enjoy!!

  50. Avatar of Amy xamyx

    Skintone/Coloring: Fairly light, very neutral; dark-featured.

    Finished: Garnier BB Cream.

    Bought: Revlon Skinlights Face Illuminator in Bare Light. I never got to try the “original”, but I really like this one!

    Disappointed: Kat Von D Spellbinding; great formula, quality is there, but I expected more from the colors themselves… The shades are too subtle, and while I do like subtle eye looks, I have more than enough neutrals to fill that need. When I wear color, I want more vibrancy. However, if I pair it with other products, it works out okay…

    Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream; I don’t need much coverage, but this is *none*! However, it’s HG as a primer for long-wearing foundations, such as Revlon ColorStay.

    tarte Exposed; at least I didn’t pay actual money for it. Again, great formula, beautiful color in the pan, but too bright/pink for my tastes.

    • Kristina

      Just can fyi, I have had this issue with every stila smudge stick that I own. Don’t fret, you just need to push up and twist on the end. It’s worth the trouble, they are the best eyeliner I own!

  58. Your skin tone/coloring: NC40-42 (don’t use MAC, just find this a neutral way of describing skin tone)
    Last beauty product you finished? – My moisturiser, which was really horrifying because it’s an Indian brand and I can’t get it over here. Luckily I had backups of it in my boyfriend’s house, but I had to wait a week or so to get it while my skin went unmoisturised.
    Last beauty product you bought? – I ordered the new Blush by 3 palettes from Sleek as well as the Garden of Eden eyeshadow palette. I’m waiting for them to arrive sometime today. I also bought a bunch of products at the pharmacies – I went there to get just a couple of backups (really, replacements for HG products I gave away to friends and family) and ended up spending way more than I wanted to.
    Last beauty product you were disappointed with? – I bought a mini brush kit from Boots and the biggest (cheek/face) brush turned out to be really scratchy. I always have bad luck with brushes!

    Last beauty product I was disappointed with: Rimmel London BB cream in Light, although my skin is quite light, this shade is way too light for me and the BB cream just glided down my face after a couple of hours.

    Last beauty product you finished? Jane Iredale PurePressed Base mineral foundation. It seems to be the only makeup product I ever finish. I only have one or two more uses out of my Lancome Bi-Facil, though, so that will be next.

    Last beauty product you bought? Chanel Glossimers in Sonate and Murmure

    Last beauty product you were disappointed with? Marc Jacobs Lovemarc Lip Gel in Have We Met? For some reason the shimmer made it turn into a very obvious frost on me and combined with the light pink shade it looked so dated. Like early 90s frosted pink. Also, the formula wasn’t moisturizing at all like I expected. In fact it felt drying and seemed to suck the moisture out of my lips making them look cracked and crinkled.
