MAC Cosmetics – Mattene Lipsticks Collection Product Swatches and Review

Overall, Mattene is impressive in its range of hues and shades (dirty corals to vibrant reds to deep berries) coupled with a deliciously smooth texture. One of my reasons for not owning many matte shades is due to the fact that they tend to be incredibly dry and without some sort of gloss, look...

Napoleon Perdis – Chandelier Shine, Gloss Patrol, Blush Patrol, Madame Curl, Eyeshadow Product Reviews

I just tried several Napoleon Perdis products, and my first impression is definitely a favorable one. I loved the packaging; all of the boxes had little tabs to make it super easy to open them (hey, those of us who wear nail polish compulsively love things that are gentle on the tips!). All of the...

MAC Cosmetics – Matte2 & Plush Lash Reviews

Overall, I found that Matte2 (pronounced Matte Squared, for those who were unsure!) was a collection of some new colors, some duplicates, but I also realize that these are all using a new matte formula, and as a result, have replaced (and probably will end up replacing more in the future) existing...
