Teddy Eye Khol is a HG staple in my makeup collection! I am a MMM Stila D/E with Yellow Undertones and this looks fab on my dark brown eyes! Teddy is a pretty bronzey brown shimmery eyeliner pencil that applies smoothly and softly without any tugs or scratches. I use this all the time. :)
I love these CCs from Stila! I'm a MMM Stila D/E with yellow undertones and this shows up a pinky peachy natural flush on me! Beautiful! I tried the GWP Sample size and I'm definitely going to buy a full sized one. I loev the cute packaging, too. The Convertible Colors are easy to apply and look so naural on. I love the wearbale range of colors available, too. I want to try Lilium next. It didn't break my oily acne prone skin out, either, and lasted all day on me! :)
This is a beautiful color! It's a blue-green-teal aqua with gold shimmer! So pretty! I pair this with OTL in Tart(lime green with pretty iridescent sheen) for a great mermaidy look! Finely pigmented, too. I got it on clearance for $1.99 at Longs Drugs. I'll definitely stock up on more of these OTL eye shadow powders! Great alternative for MAC Pigment.
Eye Shadow -L'Oreal - On The Loose Shimmering Eye Powder in Tart
kookykitty 10/26/2003 4:51:00 PM
L'Oreal OTL Shimmering Eye Powders are a great inexpensive alternative for MAC Pigments! I have this in Tart and it is beautiful! It's a pretty light pale lime green color that shimmers! I paired this with OTL in Diva Down(blue-green tealish aqua shimmer) for a great mermaidy look! I got them clearanced down to $1.99 at Longs Drugs! I'm looking to buy more! :) They aren't as long-lasting and crease free as other high end e/s, but they are definitely a great deal for the price. :)
QH Mint Julep mask is one of my HG skincare staples1 Ever sicne i discovered it, my bathroom has never been without this zit-zapping excess oil stopping miracle! This mint green colored goo works wonders on oily acne prone skin(well, it has for mine! :P). Weekly use keeps acne at bay! Reasonably priced at around $2.99 in stores and frequently goes on sale for BOGOF. I highly recommend this for everyone's good skin medicine kit! :D
White Gold Pro Pigment is a beautiful color! I got a generous sample of this from a sweet MUAer(Hi Angie!:D). It looked kinda chunky in the jar, not as finely milled as other pigments, but it blended out smoothly to a beautiful hint of greenish gold shimmery sheen!Lovely! :) Retails for $18 at MAC Pro stores.
MAC Cocoa Beach Pigment is a beautiful cocoa bonzey brown shimmer! I have been looking for a color like this! Most coppery, bronzey shades look orangey on me, but not this one! There is no "orangeness" to this at all. I also love how it is really shimmery without being frosty. It looks great with my dark brown eyes, MMM Stila D/E skin with yellow undertones. Too bad it is LE--definitely worth $18.
Unity is a beautiful shimmery rosey-bronzey-pinky-nudish color! It's the perfect YLBB plus some ooomph! lol! :P I love the pretty shimmer and the wodnerful texture of the glossimers--definitely worth the price(around $20! Yipes! :P). Unity is a staple and really tones down abd flatters my brightly pigmented super pink lips. Btw, I am a MMM Stila D/E with yellow undertones. :)
I really like the MAC Lip Conditioner in the tube. It's about $9 for 15ml and it comes in an easy to use tube. I prefer this to the pot because I don't like sticking my fingers inside. :P It's effects aren't very long-lasting, though(better than BB lip smackers, but not as moisturizing as Aquaphor), but its texture is nice. Not too thick and not too thin. I like to keep it in my desk and I use it often throughout the day. I like the soft vanilla scent, too. ***EDITED***Although the texure was nice, it did not moisturize my lips. I had to constantly reapply it and the product never seemed to penetrate. It just sorta sat on top like a film. Perhaps my lips are just too dry for this product, but I will stick with Aquaphor or my new fave Benefit Dr. Feelgood Lipscription Lip Balm.
Lipstick -Estee Lauder - True Lipstick Satin Finish in "Deep Blackberry"
kookykitty 10/26/2003 1:52:00 PM
Estee Lauder True Lipstick in Deep Blackberry is the perfect True Red lipstick! I've been looking for a true red for a loooong time and I found it. Unfortunately, I think it's been discontinued because I can't find it at any EL counters near me. :( It looks like a deep dark plummy color in the tube. But, upon application it glides on a true red..doesn't turn fuschia or orangey or brown---and stays a true red all day! It is packaged in oh so glam signature gold. I can't remember the price, but I think it was around $20. If I find it again, I'll definitely repurchase. HG item for sure. Btw, I am a MMM Stila D/E with yellow undertones, but a friend of mine(and fellow muaer who introduced me to this color--thanks kristi!)is a PPP with light blondish brown hair and pink undertones and it looks just as fab on her! :)
Lotions/ Creams -Eucerin - Aquaphor Healing Ointment

This has become one of my newest HGs. I have suffered from horribly dry chapped lips for eternity(actual time: about 23 years). My parched lips have had no long lasting relief until I found this product. Not only does it keep my lips moist, it worked wonde
Skincare - Face -Serious Skin Care - Daily Ritual Cleanser
kookykitty 10/10/2003 6:46:00 PM
The SSC Daily Ritual is an excellent product! It's my HG cleanser. It has these scrubbers in it that aren't irritating or abrasive at all. They help gently clean and exfoliate your skin. This cleanser definitely keeps blemishes at bay and will dry up any existing pimple.
Skincare - Face -Serious Skin Care - Continuously clear moisturizer
kookykitty 10/10/2003 6:43:00 PM
This is an excellent product! I have oily acne prone skin and the SSC line has become my HG skincare line. This moisturizer is no exception. When I first used it, I experienced some blackheads. So, after a bit of experimentation, I found that at night before I apply the SSC moisturizer, I soak a cotton ball in Paula's Choice 2% BHA and swipe it all over my face. This prevents my pores from getting clogged and when I wake up in the morning, I have brighter clearer skin.
Liquid -Paula's Choice - Best Face Forward Foundation SPF 25
kookykitty 10/10/2003 6:38:00 PM
I recently received samples of PC's new Foundation--Best Face Forward and I love it! I have very oily acne prone skin and this is my new HG foundation! It doesn't make me break out either. :) This stayed fresh-looking on my face longer than any other I have found. I am in between a Stila D and E with Yellow Undertones and Natural Buff is a perfect match for me. Retails $12.95
Stila Terra is a beautiful matte eyeshadow! I discovered this shade during a Stila makeover. The MA pulled this color out and I told her I already had a soft brown color--puppy, but she said it's different. I looked at her skeptically as they looked really similar to me. Well, I was wrong! Terra is warmer and has a bit of apricot and a tad of red pigment I think to its brown base. It looks great with my dark brown eyes and Stila D/E skin. I'll definitely repurchase this if I run out! :)
