I bought this during the FF sale and I've been using it practically every day since. It's the perfect medium brown that you can build into a darker crease shade and works perfect for either night or day. I was very impressed with the texture of this as well. Will def. repurchase.
This l/s is so smooth when applied. It is a bit drying though, it's like creamy, then dry within seconds. It's very much a nude color, beautiful when a gloss is applied over this. I got this during WG BOGO sale, so it was the perfect price : ) Would definitely buy again.
Ok -- I received this in a swap and was sooo bummed out when I got it. I couldn't find a swatch of it anywhere online but I figured I would like it. It does NOT show up on warm skin tones (i'm an nc 30-35 for reference) on it's own. This needs to be layered over another blush to get it's full effect, which then is quite nice actually. I applied Tippy blush and this over it, and got a ton of compliments. It adds a sheer lavender/lilac tone when applied over other blushes. But again, on it's own, does absolutely NOTHING. If I had tried this on alone at MAC, I would not have purchased it. I'm liking this for now though ...
Eye Shadow -Estee Lauder - Color Intensity Eyeshadow in Sand Dollar

I purchased this at my CCO a while back and I still have about 50% of it left. It's a great highlighter shade, or all over lid color. i don't like the packaging of this too much, the lid is somewhat hard to open sometimes, but other than that it's great. I wouldn't pay full price for this, but would def. repurchase at the discounted price at the CCO. Overall 4/5!
Palettes -Urban Decay - Get Baked Palette [DISCONTINUED]

I got sucked into buying this after watching a review on youtube for this. It's such a pretty summer palette! The texture of these eye shadows are just so creamy and rich, it just makes blending a dream. Every color in the palette compliment each other so well and the brown shades would work with other eyeshadows as well. I am very happy I snatched this up before it was gone! 5 out of 5!
I really wanted to like this, but it's basically a sheer peach gloss with glitter on my lips. Looks very pretty in the tube, but not much color payoff.
I can't believe I haven't reviewed this brush yet. I found a discounted 217 @ my CCO, which is literally 5 minutes away, not a good idea . . . anyway and have been in love ever since. It is truly the best brush I've ever used, period. It blends eyeshadows like a dream, it's super soft, versatile, and is just a MUST have staple in my collection. This brush is truly an investment but it's true that your makeup can look a million times better with the right tools.
Bronzers -Physicians Formula - Shimmer Strips in Miami Strip / Healthy Glow Bronzer
L22nene 5/30/2009 11:57:00 AM
I received this in a swap and WOW! What a fabulous find! Such a high quality product at a low end price. I'm about an NC 30 and this particular shade works best as a highlighter than a real "bronzer", or as an added color on me, but I love it. It makes my skin pop, and appear "glowy". I am now curious to try PF's other shades. I'm hearing wonderful things about the Waikiki shade as a bronzer, since this is awesome I will definitely be checking it out. Overall, I would rate this a 5/5!
Lipstick -MAC - Purple Rite Lipstick- Style Warriors
L22nene 5/25/2009 9:53:00 PM
I headed to MAC and had my makeup done and the MA used this l/s. I got so many compliments, it was crazy! My cousin was so impressed she headed to mac and purchased this. Someone mentioned they liked this better than lavender whip, I have to disagree, it's not quite as light as LW, a tiny bit darker. Plus the packaging is adorable. Would highly recommend.
Lipstick -MAC - Style Warriors- Brave New Bronze [DISCONTINUED]
L22nene 5/25/2009 9:46:00 PM
I purchased this over the hype and returned it the next day. Nothing special about this l/s. Cute packaging, but if you asked my opinion on a nude l/s I'd recommend something from the perm. line like Blankety, or myth. I'm a little disappointed about this line overall actually. Purple rite deserves two thumbs up, but the other products are lacking.
I was lucky enough to finally get this in a swap after weeks of searching! It's everything I expected! So beautiful! I have since tried with Ever So rich gloss from the Cremesheen line ( I actually ignored this shade when it came out with the line but got the gloss!! ? -- the irony!) The combo is wonderful! I would highly recommend to all if you happen to snatch one up on ebay or if it happens to be repromoted. I would definitely pick up another if that happens.
This product is wonderful. I use it on a daily basis on my NC 30-35 skin. The SA who tried this on me recommend this shade to prevent a cakey,white effect with the other shades of this. I'm glad I choose this color - it looks darker in the pan than it does on my skin. Doesn't apply too much color, just reduces shine. I will definitely repurchase this.
Eye Makeup Remover -Unlisted Brand - Target Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover
L22nene 5/13/2009 3:15:00 PM
I purchased this because I wanted to save a couple bucks and it was on sale. Stupid move on my part - this stuff sucks. I have to really work to get my eye makeup off and rub and rub and rub and then rub some more! Will NEVER purchase again.
This is my 2nd tube of this stuff. It's my favorite lip balm, and always reach for this as opposed to my other gazallion lip balm products. It provides a good amount of moisture and has a nice tingly/refreshing after feel. This is one of those products that I will keep repurchasing.
I am in love with this right now. It's perfect with just about any l/s and it smells delicious : ) I am so glad this is now part of the permanent MAC collection. It is kind of ridiculous how expensive these DG's are, but hey, everyone has their weaknesses. Will definitely keep repurchasing this.
