Upon examination of this lip gloss more closely, it really turned out to very nice on my lips,I didn't give it a second look when it first came out but today at my local Mac counter it was the last one and just because it was the last one I had to take a look so I tried it and I knew I had to have it, it gives a glow effect to my already pigmented lips, perhaps its the gold tone in it. I wear it alone since it gives my lips just the right amount of color.I really like it,Its from the Spring Forecast Collection 2010.
I really like this fragrance, it smells like a mountain top, I love that, it also has a long life since its 10oz.Marc Jacobs brings these huge bottles out every so often and discontinues others but this one is staying! You can get them at your local department stores or Sephora, for about 68$.
First I want to say if you know me and my reviews I never knock anything, if I don't like a product I just simply wont take the time to write anything negative there is already too much of that going on here on MUA on products so I am a happy reviewer, OK on to my review on this highlighter, first the name is nice Marine Life, I also want to tell everyone a little secret,, Mac brings out products with certain names for a reason I wont get into it too much but just know that Marine Life means something.Its a very unique highlighter, just on the simple fact that it is so highly hyped.I will say that many are unaware of the uniqueness of it, perhaps because they really don't know about it, it really is unfortunate that people don't know that this highlighter is different in many ways, first of all the properties on the surface are made of a silk like texture like no other highlighter that Mac has brought out yet, and the underlying powder is finely milled similar to YSL's and Dior's highlighters, Mac has not put so much into its products until now.So if that is not enough try to see if you can find a better design in a pattern out there in any other product, if you do please let me know.The pink coral color is not that easily duped either its a coral that is with depth, not just boring coral. Also please try to see the over-spray of the Seahorse like icing on a cake,My overall review is that it will be a hit for most of us when the hype is over and we all recognize that it really is a nice highlighter.
Highlighters -Christian Dior - Shimmer Powder 002 Amber Diamond, Spring 08

I have been looking for this all my life! its the most perfect highlighter for my skin, out of all I have tried this one is "the one", it gives a very glow that we all look for from highlighters I am going to put all my other highlighters up for swap now! Amber Diamond was introduced to me by tutorial I was watching on you-tube.OK how can I explain this product, we can start out by saying it is a finish all of its own, almost like a creme to powder finish so it gives a smooth silky application, it is not glittery or chunky in anyway the colors on the palette are all in sequence to the amber like color of a youthful skin, so its like applying a layer of youthful glow, does that make sense? well that is how I can explain it.My skin tone is on the medium to dark side so it works so nice on my skin.I will always keep this on my top ten beauty products.
OK after the first reviewer I must say its going to take some convincing to make good of this fragrance.I will start off by saying Versace is a very well known person and all the things he comes up with are distinctive and elegant as well as sophisticated, so alone comes this fragrance sneaking in alone with the rest of them yes its very unique a class all on its own, I don't know about the bug stray thing the other reviewer mentioned, perhaps its the pungent smell of bug spray that confused with this fragrance that has an aroma that stings at first but lingers on to a soft note, but to me its so refreshing and elegant, I would say its like a Rose so sweet and fresh at first then turns into a faded pungent smell when it has dried up.I would say that instead of the bug spray. I'm just saying that perhaps that is what the other reviewer wanted to say about the smell and also it probably didn't mix well with her chemistry.On to how I feel about it.I like it very much, it reminds me of a flower with style, it really is a hard to duplicate scent that is fresh and feminine yet bold and energetic, very nice!
I just got this today, it appears as if I can use this to blend other colors out almost like Saddle or Wedge would do by Mac.I really like the texture of Stila's eyeshadow s, they blend every well and stay put.I would recommend as one of my favorites.
Blush -Rock & Republic - Contrived Blush - All Nighter

I am giving this a 5 Overall Rating since I did pay less for it at Nordstrom Rack, its a fantastic color for me it does remind me of Nars blush called.. I cant remember, something that has to do with India TajMajal or something like that, anyways its a real popular color for Nars but that is another review.This Rock Republic blush is a stunning color for Darker tones, it gives a very nice coral glow as with many red orange blushes, this one you can blend out and it changes from that orange color in the pan to a subtle carved cheek of glow.Blend it out like you would all pigmented blushes otherwise it will look harsh if you don't blend it out with a skunk like brush or a Nars Yachiyo blush brush, it works perfect with that brush.
Lipstick -Lancome - Color Fever (Lipstick Roses) - Rose Tempest
roselovesmakeup 5/9/2010 2:41:00 PM
This is a very nice Nude pink for most gals that are light in skin tone and lips that are not that pigmented , its very long lasting and wears nicely for about 8 hours, it can be worn on mauve lips too, it gives it that polished look. My lips are more pigmented and the look seems like I'm trying to pale down my lips which is a look as well, but I prefer lips that are more done to fit my skin tone.Unfortunately it had been discontinued by Lancome.
I agree with the reviewer that said this Palette is nicely pigmented, all the color have a great payoff, perhaps many have gotten an off Palette or something, because my Palette was very pigmented and all the colors are so beautiful especially Hypnotizing! the colors can be used day or night, and smokey.even the White Rabbit is very nice shimmer.
I purchased House Wine today at the Pro Store.I will say this is a plumy deep wine color (hence the name) I do like it, you will have to blend very well with this blush, it gives a very nice flush of rosiness to your cheeks, like you are polished air brushed, finished look.I really like it.I'm an NW35-40 and its suited for my skin tone just right, thank you Mac.
I am # 7 to review this pruduct.I have to say its a winner! I love Chanel, as most any woman who is anybody to claim they like makeup,lipsticks are probably the number one in makeup so heres to you Chanel for making such a lovely undescribable color, best formula yet hands down! I would say Bois Des Les is a burnt coral with a touch of elegance, so far so good yea? this formula is the best Chanel has done so far, it compares to my beloved Armani Silks.Take a back sit Armani because here comes Chanel, well I still love Armani they are one of the best.I have two favorites now, my lips are loving Chanel and Armani, but that is another review
I tried this at the Chanel Counter today! wow! what a wonderful brush to apply concealer, and cream eyeshadow.I'm wouldn't of ever known of this brush if it wasn't for me trying on the Chanel concealer, which is by the way a good product as well, but that is another review.I have never used a brush like this one before, it has the perfect fit for my under eye area, most concealer brushes are smaller so I didn't bother trying them but the sales associate used this to apply the concealer and it worked so good, i bought it, you have to try it to believe it, is made of synthetic materials so its perfect for the job.
Oh my! finally a color that is different and that I can use.I was so happy to see the new collection Color Forecast 2010. I am going to be using this Hot Hot Hot with browns I think will look very nice.This color blends very nicely it turns into a soft muted corally red pink,I haven't seen this color anywhere in other lines so I'm happy to have gotten it.
I love this lipstick! it came out with the Color Forecast Collection 2010.I can say its the only chorally pink color I have found so far, it goes on smooth and even though its a Lustre lipstick, I can build on the color, on my pigmented lips it comes out a beautiful light faded pink coral, makes my lips look very natural though gives a hint of color to give a polished look.Very sexy and sincere.I will pick up another since its a limited edition color.
Laura Mercier makes great brushes and this bronzer brush is no exception.I love the way it deposits just the right amount of pruduct and desperses it evenly on your face, I was eyeing the Trish McEvoy bronzer brush but Laura Mercier won! it was less expensive and just as soft.
