Eye Shadow -MAC - Mineralize eyeshadow in Lovestone
naturallyfab 8/15/2011 11:55:00 AM
I just picked this color up at a CCO and I've been obsessed with it ever since! This is a gorgeous deep pinky purple color that looks great with blue eyes. I was kind of nervous because red or pink shadows can sometimes make the eyes look tired - but not this! It adds gorgeous dimension to the eyes. I had always heard iffy things about MES's but so far I love this one!
I had to experiment a few ways before I found the way that I like to wear this color supplement (as a foundation). I tried it on my under eye area, which it was quite nice. Then I tried it mixed in with moisturizer and it made me greasier than McDonald's fry station. However, if I apply this with a stippling brush straight out of the pot all over my face, this works great! It offers light-medium coverage, but you could definitely build it up if you needed to. I think this would make a great every day foundation.

This was my first bare Minerals purchase and it continues to be one of my favorites! I bought this about a year and a half ago, and have since had to repurchase the foundation. However, I'm still going on the Warmth, Primer, and Mineral Veil! I'm shocked at how long these products have lasted. If I didn't need new brushes, I would totally repurchase this whole set again!
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Kate Walsh - Boyfriend

I'm in love with everything about this perfume . . . except the price! Geeze this stuff is expensive! The smell is to die for though - it's like no other perfume I own. It sort of smells like if you mixed a girl's perfume in with her boyfriend's cologne. It's divine! This is definitely a night-time fragrance though - I do not recommend wearing this to work or any other day time activity!
I love this shade! It's a gorgeous purple-nude that works well in the office. I also applied OPI's Silver Shatter over this and it looked amazing! Zoya polishes have the best formulation of any other nail polish brand that I've ever tried, and I can't wait to get my hands on more!
I used this for the first time this summer, and I've been hooked ever since! This is abrasive, so if you have sensitive skin I would be careful. This is the perfect thing to do before self tanner because it really gets your skin smooth and even. I've never had a scrub or exfoliator work as well as this!
I love Maybelline mascaras in general, and this one is no exception! This coats my lashes nicely and you don't have to mess around with the product a ton to get full lashes. One coat of this is perfect for daytime, and two is great for night. I really like the brush because it separates your lashes and coats each lash evenly. I haven't had any problems with this clumping, and I fully plan on purchasing a new tube of this when this one dries out!
Fragrances -Paris Hilton - Heiress by Paris Hilton

I'm not a huge fan of Paris Hilton, but her perfumes are stunning as night time fragrances. This is a perfect blend of musk and fruity notes that create a feminine scent that I love!
I got this when it was on sale at Sephora, and I'm almost out of it! I use this gloss constantly. It has a really nice consistency - it's not goopy, but I feel like it moisturizes my lips as well as give them a sheer color. This doesn't really make your teeth whiter, but if you want to give a lip color a bluer tone then pop this lip gloss on top.
This is my favorite deep conditioner ever! I've been through 2 tubes of this product, and plan on always having some in my shower! My hair stylist even asked how I kept my hair so healthy,and it's definitely due to this! It makes my hair noticeably smoother and stronger. I can go a bit longer between haircuts because I don't get as many split ends when I use this deep conditioner.
I got this with the Fashion Flower collection, and I really wish I had gotten a backup! It's a light coral/pink color that looks gorgeous on a lot of different skin tones. It's a really versatile color that works with neutral and dramatic looks.
This is my newest addition to my MAC lipstick collection, and it is quickly becoming one of my favorites. this is an amplified color, but I find it is still quite wearable for an NW25. I would definitely feel comfortable wearing it out on the town or to the office!
This is my absolute favortie nude lipstick from MAC! The color is fantastic, and it's really creamy and pigmented. I find that some MAC lipsticks can dry out my lips, but this one doesn't do that at all! I really hope MAC brings this back, otherwise I'm going to be screwed!
Eye Shadow -Bare Escentuals - Loose Powder Eyeshadow

I bought a couple sets of these eye shadows about a year ago, and I find that I don't really reach for them. They're not as pigmented as I usually like my shadows to be, and they're really messy. I wouldn't really recommend them unless you wanted to get them specifically for pressing.
This is my very favorite setting powder! Somehow this manages to lock in my makeup all day and I barely have to touch up. This stuff is seriously amazing! Plus it lasts forever - I'm still on the smaller sized one that I got in the get started kit over a year ago!
