I LOVE LOVE LOVE this color but it HATE HATES HATES me ! This is the burgundy shade I've been looking for but it burns my eyes so bad it looks like I just found out I gained 50 lbs and am having a pity party tear fest . I really wish it would have worked because it's the color I realllly wanted . I can't say about the staying power because I don't know if it's smudging off or if I'm crying it off . Oh well ....

I was lucky enough to find this 2 weeks ago & I've been using it everyday since ! I love the shadows very blendable & great staying power . The liners , blushes, & brow tech are great too , I was really suprised at how good this palettes quality is . Highly reccomended !
Palettes -Tarte - Eye Couture Day-To-Night Eye Palette
shayfrom78 1/26/2009 4:01:00 PM
I feel really bad about being the first not so good review on this but I really have issues with this palette . The packaging well mine broke , the palette came off of the case ? The e/s's maybe I got a bad batch but no buttah here they were chalky shimmer ? The liners were chunked because they smudge BAADDD! The double ended brush is the only part I like . I love the brush I use it everyday . I would not repurchase this unfortunately it was my 1st Tarte purchase & if this is what Tartes quality is like I wont be purchasing any Tarte .
I have to say that this is one of the BEST foundations I have ever tried . I apply with a SK skunk brush it blends perfectly , covers amazingly , & is so ~~~light~~~ feeling you really can't tell you have anything on & I love that . This is one of the top three out of all foundations I've tried . I wish it were cheaper BUT you use such a small amount (1 pump) so its worth it . Would repurchase again .
Loose Powders -Make Up For Ever - HD High Definition Loose Powder

I use this before AND after my foundation . I haven't tried the CS version so I can't compare but I do love MUFE's version . I would like it to be a tad cheaper but if I truly like something I'll pay $$$$ why but a million LE products to try to copy one HE product ? I learned this lesson years ago . Give this a try I will repurchase again as soon as mine runs out .
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Sin

Ok first I have to say I did not care for the original . I usually use MAC paints for priming . But I love love love this version ! This honestly works with the cheapest of cheap e/s's. The original irritated my lids but so far this one hasn't . I've been wearing it about a week but will update . BTW this is actually beautiful on its own for when you're in a tme crisis lol Will definately repurchase !
I am so glad I bought this e/s . It goes with so many other shades . I like it with Ricepaper for the "natural" look lol Will definately repurchase !
Another one of my favorite MAC e/s's . I use this with Naked lunch in the creae for a natural day . I like it b/c its not matte but not glittery its perfectly in the middle lol I will definately buy again !
This is one of my if not my FAVORITE e/s's EVER ! It reminds of Pink Opal pigment but not too PINK . I actually used this as my base today with Humid in the V & it looked great ! I got a lot of compliments on this look . Sea Myth really brightens my brown eyes . I just wish it wasnt LE or I would DEFINATELY buy again .
Palettes -MAC - Tailormade warm eyes--Nordstrom Exclusive
shayfrom78 8/10/2006 1:18:00 AM
I have to say I LOVE this palette ! This is the 1st palette I've bought (or swapped for) that I can actually use every shade . The shades are very wearable . Most of my palettes I use 1 or 2 shades & pretty much "waste" the rest of the palette but not this one I actually use every shade ! I really do reccomend this palette to anyone that can still get it .
I like this mascara & LOVE the wand ! I would definately repurchase & plan to add into my "rotation" .
This is THE shiniest black mascara I've ever used . It is a little messy but once you learn the hang of it its really a great mascara . But its best if you're going out alittle extreme for daytime b/c it does make lashes THAT extreme . Definately worth a try !
I was really hoping to like this but it does ABSOLUTELY NOTHING for my lashes . No volume , length , or even "lift" . So why bother ? I guess I'll stick with CG exact lash .
Scrubs -Olay - Regenerist Microdermabrasion and Peel Kit
shayfrom78 9/19/2005 3:32:00 AM
Ok I saw this in Walmart & thought I'd give it a try . It's 2 parts , a GREAT gritty scrub & a peel . I LOVE the scrub its very gritty (and warming) & felt like it was really getting the job done VERY similar to City Faces' scrub VERY similar . Then the peel 1/2 you apply to mae a foam (like Philosophy's) & it gets a little warmer . It reminds me alot of Philosophys but beleive it or not I actually like this better ! Now I've only used it once but I did love the results . I wouldnt suggest this if you have very sensitive skin b/c I wouldnt reccomend any scrubs if you have super sensitive skin . It says to use it twice a week for best results so I'm going to use it 2 or 3 more times then update my reveiw. Oh yeah & the best part NO GROSS odor ! LOL I liked Neurogenas peel but the smell was just too much . So for around $25 its definately worth a try . Only thing I find wrong is that it doesnt come with a scoop of any kind & I wont use my fingers so I bought some cheapo craft sticks that I can throw away after each treatment . But if thats the only "problem" I can deal ! Will update ....
This is one of my faves . I love that its light for those days you prefer lighter scents . The price is reasonable but I am going to try out a dupe or two of this JIC LOL But I would repurchase !
