I really like the shade and texture, and you get tons of product. It's very shimmery beigey-peach that can also be used as a cheek highlighter. It's a bit pricey, as I don't think one would ever use it all up. And I have several eyeshadows, so I don't reach for this one as often as I'd like.
this is one of my favorite lippies. A MLBB but lighter pink shade that has a kick. the texture is divine. Lasts long and yet is moisturizing. I am so sorry it's been discontinued.
Lotions/ Creams -Eucerin - Aquaphor Healing Ointment

This ointment has been a MIRACLE on my severely chapped lips. I tried balms (Kiehl's, etc.) and nothing helped. they were peeling and would bleed a little when I tried to peel off a bit. It was awful. I read the reviews here and remembered that I had some small tubes from my derm, so I tried it, and it worked like a dream! I slather it on before bed (a little goes a long way), and again in the morning upon rising. By the time I apply my lipstick, it's absorbed. Buy this and save yourself money and aggravation! And thanks to all the MUA'ers who reviewed this before me.
I jjust bought this blush at the Body Shop clearance and really like the the rosey-bronzey shimmer that it gives my skin. These shimmers by the Body Shop are very nice, and so underrated on this board. I find I just don't reach for it that often, but I do like the quality. The application can be tricky without the right brush.
This is a fabulous, peachy-brown bronzer/blush that emits a natural looking glow that is very flattering on my NC 35 skin. I love it to give me a bit more warmth, and the glow is beautiful. I love it!
This product started out as a nice pinky rose blush, but the more I use it, I'm less satisfied. It's a nice pink shade for perhaps an oilier skin, but on my normal skin, it's a bit too powdery.
I absolutely love this quad! Not only are all of the shades wearable, but the color payoff is great and very flattering. I am an NC35 and this really flatters my dark brown eyes, especially Rondelle and Carbon. Love it!
I was pleasantly surprised by the great light coverage of this loose powder mineral foundation. I got it in Warm Sienna, which is a good match for my skin. Goes on smoothly, no chalkiness, and feels great. I love the texture and the fact that it goes on so easily and quickly when I'm in a hurry. For me it's pricey (either $42 or $45), but it has Don't know if I'll repurchase unless I can find it cheaper or a less $$ brand.
I am in the minority on this shade - it is very blah on me (NC 35) and I see no peach in it when I have worn it.What I did do with it was cut off a chunk and put it in a pallette with other lippies to lighten/neutralize other shades that are too dark. The texture was also too light, not much pigment.
I was disappointed in this pallette. The two lipstick shades are too sheer for my liking, or maybe they are just like that on me. The wear factor was not good either. I'll probably return this to Nordie's, which I don't like to do, but if it doesn't suit me...
while the shade is lovely, it is very difficult to remove, even with oil-based removers, and I found that the deal-breaker. It also took off a couple of lashes as I tried to remove it. Will definitely not repurchase. Will probably try the regular liquid liners. I'm returning this one for sure.
This is the Color Design Cool Pallette with Blues. I had high hopes for this pallete because it looked so gorgeous. However, some of the shades are just chalky and very light - no well pigmented.This includes Best Dressed and Personal Style, which got ok reviews on their own. The only way these shades stand out are when used wet, and that makes them fairly intense. Maybe I need a different primer, but even the SA admitted that they were hadrd to work with. These two are also a bit gritty. I haven't even touched some of the matte ones! Thank goodness I had the sense to buy on eBay and not spend the big bucks. I would definitely have returned it. Overall for me, a disappointment.
Eye Shadow -Rimmel - Rimmel Underground-Stir It Up Eyeshadow in No Way

I don't normally ever buy d/s shadows anymore, but I couldn't resist this shade (I had seen it in Allure) and it was 40% off, so why not? I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and the consistency. At first, it appears very glittery on top, but if you mix it a little, even with your finger, it's not so bad. I did have another shadow underneath, and when I dabbed this on, it looked really nice - I was impressed. It comes out very dark gray/black - great for a smokey eye. And it hardly creased at all, and that's amazing on my 50+ year old eyelids. If they tone down the glitter, I would consider getting more. Have upgraded to 4 lippies. A good value for the product, imo.
this is the 2006 MAC Seductions warm pallette with 6 lip colors: 2 glosses and 4 lipsticks. It's a great pallette with two heavily shimmery glosses, but still all shades are wearable on many skin tones and can be mixed for a great custom lip color. I also have the cools, which is another fantastic winner in the pallettes. I love them both!
this is a nice pinky warm shade with some shimmer These slim lippies have tons of pigment, and the staying power is decent. Good to wear alone or with gloss. The more I wear it, the more I like it.
