I'm loving this new blush from Cargo! In the pan are swirls of pale pink, bright pink, and gold. Mixed together, I get a light warm pink with a silvery sheen of shimmer on my LLL complexion. I don't have any pigmentation problems, just a couple light swipes with a fluffy brush is all I need for sufficient color. It is a bit shimmery, but it's very fine shimmer, and I like the glowy look it gives. The color lasts all day on me.
Eye Shadow -Vincent Longo - Wet Diamond- Galaxy Mist
Bonnie2842 1/3/2007 2:52:00 PM
Galaxy Mist is a pale pink with tons of silver sparkle. Applied dry, I get a sheer veil of color, and applied wet I get a glittery pale pink sheen. Very pretty either way. Compared to Bobbi Brown Diamond Dust, I think these are more pigmented and shimmery. It may just be this particular color but the sparkles are larger in this than in my BB Rockstar.
This set includes three Whipped Body Delights in Candy Apple, Cotton Candy, and Cherry Snow Cone. The texture of these are really nice! Medium thickness with no greasiness, and it sinks in quickly. It moisturizes my dry skin for the rest of the day. The scents are strong, and long-lasting, I can still smell them when I go to bed. Candy Apple- My favorite! It smells very true to it's name. I can detect both apple and a sweet candy coating. Cotton Candy- This was my least favorite of the three. I love anything cotton candy, but this doesn't smell much like it. It's just sweet. Cherry Snow Cone- Love this one too, smells just like a cherry lollipop.
Love this! On my NC25 complexion, Glissade applies as a light peach with pink tones and a glowing sheen of iridescent shimmer. I don't get much glitter but I stay away from the plum veins so maybe thats why. It looks really pretty on, and is one my favorite MSFs now.
Highlighters -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish in Lightscapade

Love this! On my NC25 complexion, this swirled dome of multi-colored pastels applies on my skin as a cream colored pearly sheen. It makes a pretty highlighter, and I can dust this lightly all-over without looking ghostly. It makes my skin glow, and has no shimmer at all, just lovely pearliness.
I got Cheeky Cherry, and while it's sheer, I can definitely see color on my LLL skin after using just a little bit. Cherry is a blue red/berry color, similar to Tarte Flush. I was surprised to hear from some that this comes off right away, because even after I washed my face, it was still there! It's also easy to blend and doesn't dry right away so you have time to blend it without streaks. The pump applicator is a good idea, but squirts out just a little more than I would like. I'll probably try other colors.
Powders -Guerlain - Meteorites powder for the face in Mythic 01
Bonnie2842 12/9/2006 11:58:00 PM
This seems to be such such a hit or miss product! It's a hit for me. Over makeup or bare skin, it seems to soften my complexion while giving me a subtle glow. I don't usually like scented products but this can I can tolerate fine. It's so fun to use too, and I love the cute packaging. For reference, I'm a neutral/warm LLL.
Highlighters -NARS - Highlighting Blush Powder in Albatross
Bonnie2842 12/5/2006 10:06:00 PM
Very pretty for neutral or warm toned women, in my opinion. It has a cream colored base in the pan, but once applied the color disappears and you get an iridescent golden sheen. Like all of NARS blushes, it's very silky and finely milled, and lasts all day on my dry skin. It looks really cute on top of matte blushes. I have to disagree that this is MAC Vanilla in pressed form. It lacks the pink sheen that I feel makes Vanilla special.
Lipstick -Clinique - Colour Surge Bare Brilliance - Ruby Glass
Bonnie2842 11/26/2006 10:34:00 PM
This really is the perfect red lipstick for those who think they can't wear red. It's a very sheer and glossy red with golden shimmer and a little bit of glitter. I think it's a bit on the neutral/warm side of red. It is so sheer that you can most likely apply it without a mirror, and thats impossible for most red lipstick. The glitter isn't gritty, but you can still see it on your lips once the color wears off, hence the missing lipstick. For reference, I'm an LLL with lightly pigmented lips.
Lipstick -Clinique - Color Surge Butter Shine Lipstick - In The Pink
Bonnie2842 11/26/2006 10:29:00 PM
I find Buttershines to have the nicest texture of any other lipstick I've tried. I won't even go near my previous favorite anymore, MAC Lustres. They go on silky and sheer, and have a pretty glossiness to it. In The Pink applies on my light lips as a medium coolish pink with a hint of cherry red and subtle shimmer. It gives my lips a juicy flushed color, and is very sheer. The limited edition pink tube is really cute too.
Highlighters -Guerlain - Les Meteorites Ball Powder - Pink Fresh 02
Bonnie2842 11/25/2006 8:38:00 PM
These are so cute, and the color is surprising natural on me. All the pink, peach, and opal balls apply as a soft, warm pink on my LLL NC25 complexion. The subtle shimmer adds glowiness. I find these to be more pigmented than the others I own, Mythic and Perles de Velours, so I can only use it as a blush. It has a lovely, non-powdery texture as well.
Highlighters -Guerlain - Perles de Velours-2006 Holiday Meteorites
Bonnie2842 11/25/2006 8:31:00 PM
I use these almost every day, they are so pretty and fun to apply! I use my UD blush brush to swirl it around all the balls, and I get a glowing berry flush to my cheeks. The shimmer to me is very subtle, just enough to light up my complexion. When I want more color, I make sure to brush against the reddish balls, and when I just want shimmer, I swipe the lighter colored ones. For reference, I'm a LLL, NC25.
Lips -Urban Decay - Urban Decay Lip Envy in Envious
Bonnie2842 10/15/2006 2:38:00 PM
Envious applies on my pale lips as a cool, bright pink. I love the smooth gel texture, and yummy cinnamon vanilla flavor. The little inkwell bottle it comes in is very cute, and the doe-foot applicator makes it easy to apply. I do have to reapply though, and a stain should last all day. 15% of the proceeds benefits a charity for breast cancer.
This is my new favorite blush, I use it constantly. It's perfect for adding a cute flush of color to my cheeks, making my pale face look instantly more vibrant. The color is a slighty bright watermelon pink with a hint of cherry red, and it looks perfect on my NC25, neutral/warm LLL complexion. It's sticky going on, but once it dries it lasts all day.
Tinted Moisturizer -Stila - Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer
Bonnie2842 10/15/2006 2:21:00 PM
I'm an LLL and this blends in with my skintone nicely. It has very light coverage, even less so than the Sheer TM, in my opinion. It does cover some of the redness in my skin, but I mostly love it for the glowing sheen it gives me. It has a nice light creamy texture like the regular TM. This is wonderful for enhancing your complexion if you already have nice skin.
