The Sample: TEMPTU Signature Starter Airbrush Kit, Review (Review, Swatches & Photos)

15 Feb

««Press Sample»» For my Holiday Gift-Guide Roundup, I gave you guys a look at the TEMPTU Signature Starter Kit. Well, I loved the kit so much that I thought it definitely warranted a full-sized review from me. I know a lot of you are already seasoned pros in the world of airbrush makeup but for [...]

The Beauty Picks: Best Beauty Sets for the Last-Minute Shopper

21 Dec

««Press Samples»» Well guys, looks like I’ve done it again–I am always such a procrastinator when it comes to Christmas shopping! Every year, I vow that the next year will be different. And every year, I am stuck shopping late into the night a day or two before Christmas. What can I say? I never claimed to [...]

The Sample: NEW IT Cosmetics Your Most Beautiful You 6-Piece Collection (Review, Swatches & Photos)

12 Jul

««Press Sample»»  Wow–it is seriously amazing to me that I used to be able to churn out reviews this size pretty consistently without batting a lash but now, with my busy schedule being what it is (coupled with my general lack of sleep…but that’s nothing new), it took me almost 2 weeks just to finish [...]

The Sample: NEW Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light & Ambient Powder Brush (Review, Swatches & Photos)

26 Jan

««Press Sample»» After you’ve been playing with makeup and buying makeup and blogging about makeup for a certain amount of time, you reach a point where almost nothing phases you. Sure, there are the collections/items that excite you and spur you to purchase, but it’s rare that a new release will jump out at you [...]

The Sample: NEW Chanel Poudre Signée de Chanel Illuminating Powder (Review, Swatches & Photos)

8 Jan

There are some beauty products where you look at the price tag and scoff, thinking “why on earth would anyone pay that much for a ________ (insert outrageously overpriced item here–Clé de Peau LE version of the La Crème, I’m lookin’ at you!! [kind of a ridiculous example but you know what I mean])?!”. But [...]

12 Things for 2012!

1 Jan

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I was inspired by Paris’ 12 Best Things of 2012 post, so I decided to do my own in honor of the new year. My list is mostly beauty-related, but there is one oddball in there. Take a look and see!

The Sample: IT Cosmetics Live, Love, Laugh Vitality Face Disc (Review, Swatches & Photos)

13 Dec

««Press Sample»» I had never heard of IT Cosmetics before until very recently, when I began hearing some buzz about the brand. What sealed the deal for me, though, was when Best Things in Beauty began raving about the brand (here and here). If the queen of high-end, high-quality makeup can’t say enough good things [...]

The Sample: Jouer Highlighter in Tiare (Review, Swatches & Photos)

12 Nov

««Press Sample»» Yes, I’ve got more lovely Jouer goodies to share with you guys today! In case you hadn’t noticed, I’ve really been loving this brand lately. I just love the simple, paired-down aesthetic of the line–it’s a little reminiscent Laura Mercier…except with way cooler packaging! Jouer offers superior formulas, lovely textures, super wearable shades, and intelligent packaging. [...]

The Sample: Kevyn Aucoin The Celestial Bronzing Veil in Tropical Days (Review, Swatches & Photos)

1 Aug

So the other morning, I’m wandering through the beauty counters blowing off steam when lo and behold–there was a Kevyn Aucoin counter directly in front of me. Kevyn Aucoin!!! This was particularly exciting for me because a.) I had never actually seen any items in person or tried anything from the brand; b.) I’ve heard SO [...]

The Sample: Shiseido Luminizing Satin Face Color in BE206 Soft Beam Gold (Review, Swatches & Photos)

18 Jun

I remember reading a review on Shiseido’s Luminizing Satin Face Color a while ago and being really curious about it. I always hear rave reviews on Shiseido’s products, but for some reason the brand doesn’t quite get the recognition it deserves. I put both BE206 and RD103 on my “lemming list”, where it was quickly [...]
