Great for lining. I use with cool toned shades like cloud and puck or with kitten and jezebel for a nice contrasting look. Very versatile.
Nice shimmer to pair with pewter and puck for a smokey look. Light gray frost with light taupe undertones. Very cool-toned but makes my blue-green eyes pop. Also good on lid with kitten in inner corners and trish dark brown eye shadow to line. Very glam look with deep glossy lips.
Eye Shadow -Stila - Puck eye shadow [DISCONTINUED]

Great greyed taupe for lid or crease. Usually pair it with cloud to highlight and pewter to line for a smokey night look, or with kitten for a light daytime look. A staple in my kit.
Though it appears a bright pink in the pan, it produces a light pink flush on the cheeks. Wish it were more pigmented since it doesn't give that pop of color I wanted it to. Okay as a basic blush, but not as nice as Trish Natural. It's a good blush but nothing special.
Bad color match to begin with. ID# I-50(N) too dark. Turns orange. Doesn't cover anything yet leaves an unnatural/mask-like finish. Will not rebuy!
Makes for a great nightcream when my slightly oily/sensitive skin is a bit dry. Most creams tend to sting my face but this one doesn't. Some may be weary of it's thick texture. My suggestion is not to layer it on as you would water-based moisturizers, but to warm up a small dab your hands and pat it in to your dry areas.
Pressed Powders -Stila - Sheer Color Face Powder spf15
TXIRISH 10/18/2004 8:53:00 PM
Good for touching up my spf factor throughout the day. Stops shine w/o caking. Nice coverage. Works well over the stila tm and alone on bare skin. Wish the powder puff didn't have to sit on top of the powder (generally prefer a separate chamber). A good buy for a decent price.
Lovely color, a very natural rosy-berry shade. Not to matte or glossy, and no shimmer. Good for those days when you want just a tad of polish and color.
Bought this before I purchased my stila no 9. Very simillar but a bit more red w/a hint of brown. Prefer the stila to it, but not an altogether bad purchase.
Beautiful deep rosy-pink (no brown). Luv it w/my Trish Beauty lipgloss. Best lipliner I ever bought!
Bought this while visiting the fragonard factory in grasse. Immediatly drawn to this scent. Very warm and inviting. I describe it as a woodsy oriental scent with notes of coconut, amber, sandlwood, ect. Reminds me a bit of chocolate actually, but like a dark chocolate. Very sexy, but in a down-to-earth kinda sexy. I intend to keep it in rotation. Would have preferred it in a spray bottle, but I probably waste less this way.
Bronzers -Chantecaille - Chantecaille Capri Powder Bronzer
TXIRISH 8/19/2004 4:39:00 PM
So very lovely. I'm a PPP with slightly oily skin and find that this bronzer doesn't turn orange or give a fake muddy color to my skin. Usually skip the face powder with this one as too many powder products on a face can give a too dry appearance. Blends beautifully over foundation and under blush. Warms up skin giving it a nice lit within glow.
Concealers -Stila - Stick Concealer [DISCONTINUED]
TXIRISH 8/19/2004 4:30:00 PM
I like the convinience of a stick concealor for those rushed days when I just don't have time to whip out the SK concealor brush and liquid concealor (jane oil free). Though I don't think this concealor covers quite as well and comes up a little too yellow on me (got B when I should have bought A) it will work in a pinch. The not too dry not too creamy texture makes it effiecient for both eye and face imperfections and it stays put all day. Couple dabbs here and there and I'm good to go. Best for slight discolorations as it is not as pigmented nor as thick as my Jane. Would buy again as a back up concealor, but I am still on the search for that ellusive HG.
Good concealor for a great price. Have it in 01 Fair, which is a good color match for my PPP skin. Nice consistancy, with enough slip to blend well yet dry enough to stay put. Great for an eyebase keeping shadows fresh-looking. Good for covering undereye shadows. Will settle into fine undereye lines as will most concealors, but that's usually the eyecream's fault. Liquid texture requires a good concelor brush for spots and discoloration on face. All in all a decent concealor but far from HG. Would rebuy simply for the price and good color match, but still in the seach for a HG.
Liquid -Jane - Stay Calm Foundation [DISCONTINUED]
TXIRISH 8/19/2004 4:09:00 PM
Again as I'm not used to selecting foundation colors for myself (usually leave it up to the MA) I was a little off in choosing the right color. I had figured since I was Fair 01 in the Jane no show oil free concealor, I'd be Fair Enough 01 in the foundation. Unfortunatly, this shade is a little too light for me. The coverage and texture reminds me of my Nars Balanced foundation(Monte Blanc)though the Jane provides a more matte finish (you can skip the powder on this one). In fact the smell of the foundation is also very simillar. What is not simmilar is the price, making Jane a steal if I can find the right color. Still might be an option in winter, when I will probably be a bit paler. An okay foundation that gives medium to full coverage. Best used sparingly, not all over or you might end up with a masklike appearance.
