Guerlain – KissKiss Gloss Review for Secret Beige, Rose Florida, Fraise a Croquer

I recently tried out three Guerlain KissKiss glosses ($26.00) in Secret Beige, Rose Florida, and Fraise a Croquer. KissKiss glosses are delicately scented with something akin to a raspberry-sweetness. It is light enough that I find I don't notice it very much after I've applied it to my lips. I did...

Chanel – Pin-up, Constellation, Scintillantes, Sundress, Equinox, & Sungold Review

Part two of the Chanel Glossimer experiment, and while I might not have converted into a Chanel-gloss-only kind of gal, I definitely wouldn't pass them up when offered them! The six up for review this time around are Pin-up, Constellation, Equinox, Scintillantes, Sundress, and Sungold. Quick...

MAC Cosmetics – The Originals – Lip Swatches & Product Photos

While I already wrote up my in-depth review on all of The Originals, I finally had the time to do some lip swatches!  With that in mind, remember that the application is not always perfect as I merely apply for the sake of taking photos to share the color with everyone! :)

See all five lipglasses...

Chanel – Spring 2008 – Blue Satin Le Vernis Nail Colour (Polish) Review

Chanel's Aurora Blues spring 2008 collection is centered around shades of icy blues, including Blue Satin, which is a dark, rich navy blue that's nearly black with extremely subtle shimmer.

MAC Cosmetics – Sculpt & Shape Review, Swatches, Product Photos

Let me preface this review saying that I have not seen or played with the actual Sculpt & Shape collection due out the 26th. All of the sculpting and shaping powders have been available at PRO stores for a few months now, but they come separately either in pot or pan form, and they are the size of...

MAC Cosmetics – The Originals Review, Product Swatches

Overall, I enjoyed this collection enough that I found several products interesting enough to purchase. I felt like the lipsticks and lipglasses turned out to be my favorites, but I have been on a bit of lip kick lately. I really loved Back to Del Rio, Rozz Revival, Supersequin, and Utter Pervette!...

Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) – Spring 2008 – New Spring Look 2008 Preview

Ladies, let me tell you, YSL has truly created a remarkable spring collection (debuting February 2008). I had the opportunity to play and test out the Palette Pop, a face and cheek powder; Rouge Pure Shine lipstick in Pink Sorbet; and Pop Stick Blush (N2) in Strawberry/Raspberry. What did I love?...

Chanel – Galaxy, Glaze, Spark, and Unity Glossimer Review

Chanel is often a brand that inspires jealousy, because the price point is just high enough that it is out of reach (or justification) for so many makeup addicts. I include myself in this group, because I tend not to be able to justify a purchase at Chanel, no matter how pretty everything looks to...
