Favorite products of that era : muacjdiscussion

I just lately discovered my make-up product critiques from MakeupAlley from 2002-2006 and they’re hilarious to learn however introduced again recollections of so many merchandise I used and loved- and a few I can not even bear in mind. I used to be 12-16 on the time, learn Attract prefer it was a bible, and spent each greenback of babysitting cash on the newly opened Sephora or Filene’s (RIP). It was in all probability essentially the most makeup-obsessed interval of my life,; I can not even faux like I care as a lot now. Some favorites:

  • Stila. I am speaking old-school Stila in cardboard packaging with the lovable drawings on them. I cherished the clicking pens for lip gloss and eye shadow, regardless that the value per ozwas really horrifying. My bat mitzvah make-up was positively the blue cream shadow and the Lip Glaze in Watermelon. I additionally cherished O’Keefe and Cloud eyeshadow.

  • Puffs with sparkles. I had Profit’s Kitten Goes to Paris and UD’s Marshmallow flavored one. Did I put on these regularly? If that’s the case, that is form of horrifying.

  • Lip gloss, duh. It was as if a glassy lip would protect me from each different adolescent horror. From the MUA critiques, it seems like I used to be an enormous fan of Lancome Juicy Tubes (She Shines was a vibrant clear pink), Profit Tailgate (this was tremendous in style), and clearly MAC Lipglass- one known as Cultured was a favourite.

  • I cherished actually cool tones- pinks and lavenders. There was a MAC product known as All Over Gloss that was too sticky to actually be used throughout however the shade Frost Warming was like a demented frosty orchid and this was my favourite shade as a teen so I did as informed and wore it as a proto-highlighter. Profit Excessive Beam was additionally one other highlighter earlier than I knew to name it that.

  • Tarte was new-ish and had these improbable double-ended lip glosses named after well-known {couples}. I additionally cherished a sizzling pink blush that got here in a magnetic purple case.

  • MAC was really the GOAT. I nonetheless miss a teal eye shadow known as Parrot that I’ve by no means discovered a very good dupe for. And so many good collections.

  • The critiques introduced again manufacturers I’ve not thought of in an extended time- Delux Magnificence, Pupa Cosmetics. Too Confronted had that silhouette of the glam lady on the whole lot.

  • I believe the one factor I purchased on the drugstore was (extra) lip gloss and mascara. That has positively modified. Skincare all got here from the pharmacy.

  • I wore D&G Gentle Blue and Ralph Lauren Ralph. I nonetheless objectively like Gentle Blue however the scent is pure 2004 to me.
