I am wearing this today with Moss Scape PP on lower half of lid, Goldmine on inner lid/ tear duct, Greensmoke on lid blended up into crease, Carbon on outer V & Blacktrack winged out on upper lid. Very nice smokey Khaki eyed look with some gold accent. I wouldn't call this color "green." Very pretty color with some fallout. I took a lippie off because this is the only way I wear it and don't reach for it too often therefore I wouldn't repurchase. Still a look/ color that I like & a nice color to have in my collection. NW25 for referance.
This is my go to brow highlight color. It is such a beautiful versatile color, On my NW25 skin it comes out as a nice vanilla, goldish, with some pink duo chrome depends on how the light hits it. Goes very well with a lot of differnt looks. Very many uses for this pigment.
Conditioner -John Frieda - Frizz-Ease - Smooth Start Repairing Conditioner

I have wavy/more curly long latina hair. I am always on the search for frizz taming products. I came across this conditioner and am extremely pleased with the results. It definetly tames the frizz and makes hair more managable. I just apply a little styling product to my damp hair and go. The end result is great smelling, nice waves, zero frizz hair. For the price it is a great find and generous 10 oz. of product.
Mascara -L'Oreal - Telescopic Explosion in Blackest Black

When I saw the brush on this I thought how genius I have to try it. What a disappointment. Like others said it is thick & clumps my lashes together. Its like too much product is on the brush & it just clumps them together. The more I try to seperate them the more product gets coated on my lashes without ever putting the applicator back in. In other words I will never repurchase.
Eye Shadow -Bobbi Brown - Metallic Eye Shadow in Iced Mauve
Caligallola 4/14/2011 2:09:00 PM
This eyeshadow has a very nice finish & good staying power. It is called Iced Mauve but is more of a taupe on my NW25 skin. Great for a neutral eye. I use it as a transition color. I swipped MAC's Satin Taupe for comparison. Satin Taupe is slightly more darker. Although it is a great shadow I would not repurchase and actually swapped it away. I don't use it that much I rather have someone else enjoy it.
I am on a copper bronze kick & had to buy this when I came across it at my CCO. What a great find. It was LE from the Pret-a- Papier Collection. This is a beautiful highly pigmented color. I compare it to a slightly browner version of Cranberry and not as orange as Coppering. I wore Cut to Fit on my lid, Mulch in crease & carbon in the outer V. Such a pretty color that I am shocked doesn't have more reviews.
Eyeliner -Too Faced - Starry Eyed Liquid Eyeliner--Restraining Order

I was pleasently surprised with this glitter eyeliner. Honestly I wasn't expecting much. I wear it on my upperlid ontop of my MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack and it shows up great. Nothing over the top. I guess you can build it up for a nightime look. With the colors of glitter that it has it goes well with blue, green & purple shadows. It lasts all day/night & there is no fall out of glitter in your eyes. Just gives a nice sparkle to your eyes.
I am not a brown eyeshadow wearer but, this one I love. It has enough bronze/gold in it to make it not boring. I've worn it with Old Gold on lid and Tempting in crease looks very nice. It's a Lustre but has a better texture than others and blends well & is very pigmented. Very pleased with this color. NW25 for ref.
I seem to gravitate towards these red coppery colors. This color is great. The color payoff is amazing, very pigmented. I've worn it as a crease color with either Lucky Green, Steamy or Gleam on lid all of them go well with Coppering or Coppering on lid with a dark purple in crease there are a lot of color combos with this color. I ♥ this color. NW25 for referance
I have a new found love for this color. I've had it for a few years in my thunder eye quad and never reach for it. It is a color you have to have a light hand while appling or else it comes out to dark. I started using it again and wow it is my new favorite fall/winter color. I wear Gleam on lid Sketch on crease and Phoolf on brow and wow it really gives nice depth and color contrast on my lid. So pretty NW25 for referance.
This is such a pretty vibrant color. It seems to come out differnt colors on different people. I love pairing it with Moss Scape paint pot on bottom half of lid, golden olive on inner half of eye and humid in crease and outer v. Moss Scape really brings the gold out so the end result really is a beautiful golden olive.
I bought this in the olive color. I was really excited to use this since it's hard to find green liquid eyeliners. This is more of a gold than green maybe golden green which is very pretty. I had to put two coats to have it show up on my NW25 skin- letting it dry between application. My problem with this is that it looked cracked. It wasn't a nice fluid line on my upperlid it was sort of lumpy looking. So for this reason I will not use again. It has a felt like tip that was easy to apply but the end result just wasn't flattering. I wanted to like this so bad.
Eye Shadow -MAC - Paint Pot in Delft [DISCONTINUED]
Caligallola 10/23/2010 8:35:00 PM
I bought this from the MAC store a month ago I was nervous that it was d/c and having not been able to swap for it I was so happy it was still available. I love this paint pot. I literally wore it everyday for the first week that I had it using different combos. I've used this on lower half of lid with steamy and club but my favorite is delft with blue brown pigment it looks amazing. I am a blue eyeshadow lover if you are too then this a must have. It is such a beautiful darker blue that compliments my NW25 skin.
I am wearing this today with MAC's lucky green on inner lid, wondergrass on outer part of lid and retro peacock on crease looks so pretty. I actually like this color a lot. It is very pigmented. I barely tap my brush onto the color and it applies the color nicely, it lasts all day. It is a dark color that I couldn't imagine using over entire lid. I've also paried it with MAC's goldmine or newly minted on my lid and this on crease. I don't own any other color like it.
This was one of those colors that I kept coming back to at the MAC counter. But, unfortunately this color didn't work well on my nw25 skin. It is a beautiful coppery pink that just looked plain on my skin color. I swapped it away hopefully someone else can enjoy it.
