I got "espresso" and it looks very nice on my long lashes. I have fair skin, so the black would be a little harsh, but this color is perfect. It's pretty basic but does add some length and doesn't clump my lashes together. A little pricey for the lack of "features" but I would buy it again.
Concealers -Physicians Formula - Concealer Twins... Green and Natural

This would be great if the green wasn't SO green. I have fair skin and purchased the concealer twins in green/light and the green is very prominent against my skin, even with the light over top. I haven't tried mixing the two or toning down the green, but out of the bottle it is way too harsh.
Treatments (Eye) -Bare Escentuals - Eye Rev-er Upper

This definitely helps add shine to my eyes and lighten up my dark circles. It feels silky and smooth. It takes awhile to dry before adding the Well Rested, but they do make a nice combination. It's cooling and soothing and feels nice on the skin. For under $20 it's not a bad buy, but it's also no miracle worker.
In general I like the Bare Escentuals line of cosmetics, except for the packaging. I bought the Matte foundation as soon as it came out. I am fair, but thought the fair foundation was too chalky, so I went with the fairly light. It was too yellow for my skin. I have some oily spots and some dry spots (combination) and all this make-up seemed to do was excentuate my dry areas. I don't like the how much of a mess the product makes, or the new packaging it comes in. I have several eye shadows, blushes, eye liners, and most of the brushes but since my experience with the matte foundation I've stopped buying into the company's hype. I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone with less than flawless skin based on my experience.
Eye Shadow -Almay - Almay Intense i Color for Hazel

I like this product for it's ease of use and beautiful complementary colors. I have very fair skin, red hair, and brown eyes but chose the hazel eye collection because it was softer than the colors for brown eyes. I didn't purchase the matching eye liner or mascara, but I loooove this shadow. The pink and brown go beautifully together and don't look like drag makeup on my light skin. I would definitely recommend this, and thank you to the user who posted that gorgeous picture of her handy work!
Liquid -Clinique - Superfit Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

I looooove this foundation! It's creamy and gives light to moderate coverage. It's completely matte and does not look like you're wearing foundation after application. It covers up my blemishes and dark under eye circles when layered. I have been using this for 5 years and have yet to find a better foundation. I wear the lightest color, Shell 01, and it's a perfect match.
