Naomi D.'s (NaomiChristina) Beauty Product Reviews
This blush is perfect. I've used blush from NARS, Stila, Tarte, YSL etc. and have never quite found the one I wanted until I purchased Hussy. A little goes a long way and for the price, I'd day this is a perfect choice. I've seen it on light-to-dark complexions and it has looked great on every skin tone. Bottom line: everyone should own this blush!
Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Stick in "San Francisco"
*sighs* Luckily, I got this as a gift and didn't spend money on it. It doesn't show up well on my lips. It isn't all bad, though. It has a great smell, nice packaging & I love the little pamphlets that Buxom products come with. It goes on smooth & it's somewhat long-lasting. However, this color is very muted. I have dark skin & I usually buy colors like this because they show up better on my lips. This didn't show up too well, but it still has some color to it. I can't give this 5 stars, but I will try out some of the other colors.
Pricey, but worth it.
I have to admit, the only thing that attracted me was the amazing design. This tube & mirror is GENIUS! The lipstick itself is nothing extraordinary. It's smooth & light, and has a very soft smell. It looks wonderful alone but even better with a little sheer gloss on top. It's a whopping $47, but if you're a packaging fiend like me, you won't mind paying the price. Even when the lipstick is finished you'll still have a cool mirror!
Love Love Love, but...
This is truly a great product. This is the second one I've had and the flashlight really is long-lasting. (I finished the mascara first; the light still works on my old one!) It is a bit difficult to get off but it has great coverage. For the extra things you get with this mascara it's worth the price, but if you don't care about a flashlight, mascara & mirror all in one, stick with a cheaper mascara.
Amazing color. Great consistency. Smooth application. Highly pigmented. Givenchy's gloss is a 5-star hit for me. It has the pop of a lipstick but it's light & beautifully shiny. I think I may buy a few more in the same color just to have handy. I can truly say that this gloss is perfect and completely fits it's description. The Velvet Purple is great for fall.
LOVE LOVE LOVE
I think this may be THE BEST lip balm I've ever used. All lip balms promise to be smooth & hydrating but this is one of the few that do all that and more. It smells wonderful & is very long-lasting. The mirrored cap is a HUGE plus as well as the little pamphlet included in the package! If I had to recommend a lip balm, this would definitely be one of the top 3.
Great product but...
I really like this lip treatment. It has an amazing smell & such cute packaging. It does moisturize lips, but I feel like I'm re-applying it too often; it isn't that long-lasting. It does say "apply generously throughout the day" so maybe it's supposed to be used often, I don't know. It gets dry & then I have to put more on several times during the day. However, it is a great price compared to other good lip treatments, and it's all natural. A big plus for me is all the info on the box itself, no pamphlet needed like in the Dior lip balm.
I love Avon Ultra Color Rich Lipsticks. They go on so smoothly and are super pigmented. The Cherry Jubilee is a beautiful deep red color. I like it so much that I'll have to try some of the other colors. The only problem I have is that the colors in the Avon catalog are slightly different than in person, but luckily I wasn't disappointed by the difference.
I did a review on the same exact product in the Red Taboo color, but I purchased the Forbidden Burgundy, and once again, IT IS PERFECT. The only difference is that, unlike the red which is it's own shade, Forbidden Burgundy, in my opinion, is dupable. That being said, don't spend the $34 if you can find a different deep berry color.
