This is one of the only products that my sons can use. I also use it occasionally for my face, which is more sensitive than the rest of my body. My kids and I suffer badly from keratosis pilaris and they also have slight psoriasis, which makes it nearly impossible to find a lotion that doesn't irritate. This stuff is AMAZING!
This color is a vibrant, yet very blendable and buildable fuchsia color. It can be toned down to a light pink or be built, all out, for amazing rock star color!
Makeup Brushes -Ecotools - Bamboo 6 Piece Brush Set

A shockingly nice set of brushes for a great value! I use the EcoTools brushes on customers that prefer more organic makeovers (using mostly mineral makeup from herbalists and some of the Physician's Formula Organics line). The EcoTools brushes are very full and soft and don't shed much, either.
Pressed Powders -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish Natural - Light

Very neutral/natural product. I can wear this in the summer when I don't want full coverage of foundation and it gives a natural glow to my skin without being sparkly.
A beautiful flush-y pale pink that's completely wearable even for us super-pale girls. Gives a very natural flush of color without being "sparkly" or "shimmery". Gives more of a glow.
Liquid -Estee Lauder - Double Wear LIGHT Foundation SPF10

Lasts forever, even through this 100+ degree heat in California! Covers fairly well, even my crazy Irish redness in the cheeks and chin! Doesn't even need powder to set and amazingly lasted through a surprise trip to the lake and a couple of hours of jetski-ing!
Super pale frost is almost too pale. I use this mid-lower-lip for highlight and it really fills out the lip to give it that amazing pouty look!
Lip Treatments -MAC - Hello Kitty -- Popster Tinted Lip Conditioner

A beautiful, moisturizing, sheer coral color. Works great for us super-pale redheads and gives just the right amount of color wash to your own lip color. Amazing scent and taste. Downfall - that scent and taste! You keep licking your lips which makes you use more! It's addicting!
Lip Treatments -MAC - Hello Kitty -- Pink Fish Tinted Lip Conditioner

Super light formulation and totally moisturizing. The color is a pale pink and transfers very sheer to your lips, only enhancing them, rather than coating with color.
BEAUTIFUL neutral beige/nude color... one problem with it though. The packaging SUCKS! It leaks and won't tighten down properly, so it's always exposed to air and gets sticky quickly. The older, round packaging was far better and left the glosses - well, GLOSSY, not sticky. It also kept your makeup bag from becoming gooey, too!
Eye Makeup Remover -Lancome - Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Make-up Remover

Awesome remover for eye products. One swipe and it's GONE! Even heavy liner and waterproof stuff! LOVE IT!
A bit on the sticky side, but a great, darker magenta color that I don't even need to use a lipstick or liner base with if I don't want to!
Perfect dupe for "Style It Up" from the MAC Barbie Collection. Smells odd, but is super long-lasting and the perfect coloring for my pale skintone!
Beautiful in the tube, complete suck on the lips. NO COLORING AT ALL. Sticky mess that doesn't show up. Don't bother putting it over colored lipliners and lipsticks, just use clear with a shimmer to it, it'll be the same payoff (and probably less sticky!).
I love the formulation of this lipstick and it's very wearable for just about any skintone. On days when I'm a bit "off" in color or feeling ill, I can easily perk it up with a pink gloss over the top.
