I love this color, it has been a fav of mine for years - it is a nautral looking flush I just love and would look great on a lot of skin types. I keep coming back to this - always. Like it on my eyes as well.
DUSK is my life long HOLY GRAIL eye shadow!!!!!!! I use this every day and will FREAK if it is ever discontinued!!!! It was my first MAC purchase years and years ago and it STILL is my all time fav!!!! The color is a warm medium dark brown with golden shimmer. It is sheer and nautral looking on, but you can build the color for night. This is my HG because it does not make my eye lids look crepey and only minor creasing easy to fix with a flick of the pinky, if that. I love that the product is a bit hard in the pan - unlike becca that can be damaged if you dip a pinky in it too hard. The pan lasts a long time - my concern for it to be discontinued because I don't need to replace for a long time and I am afraid mac will think people are not buying it and nobody cares. I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!!!!! It is perfect and WELL WORTH TRYING!!!!!!!! THANKFULLY it is still going strong at mac.com, gloss.com and in mac stores!!!!!!! SOOO HAPPY ABOUT THIS PRODUCT!!!!!!!
Lipstick -Revlon - Moisturous Lipcolor in Naked Splash
amy212 4/27/2006 6:36:00 AM
This is a hg lipstick, along with cg incredifull in honey rose. Naked splash is a bright, medium toned pink with nude - very pretty, like loreals pink tranquilo - my fav color for years (I do have a few favs - they are all shades of that great ripe, fleshy pinky peachy nudy color). I love the moisturous formula - very smooth and moist. When its dry out or my lips are in bad condition I will only wear with cg incredifull or revlon moisturous lipcolor. I am very clad these are NOT discontinued the way one reviewer thought.
I like this foundation, esp with my lluminari (sp) sponge - a a must have a for any liquid foundation. I did not wear this much before the sponge - the old fashioned glass bottle is a PAIN and it is super easy to use waaay too much!!! But with my lluminari sponge (cost 10 bucks - well worth it) The founation went on smoothly and evenly with great even converage - I remember why I bought it in the first place!!!! I don't think I will keep using it all over my face every day (trublend is my everyday hg) but for special needs and i will use this, and if i ever go though the bottle (you only need a teeny bit) I will buy again. I also use this as a concealer and for that it is great, esp around the eyes and nose, mine gets SUPER RED FROM ALLERGIES and concealing here is more than half my battle.
Blush -Delux Beauty - Fuchsia Flush Stick [DISCONTINUED]
amy212 4/25/2006 6:26:00 AM
I love the fuchsia color that I thought would be too blue before but really wanted a new blush and these are some of the only blushes that I trust not to irritate me. Fuchsia is a medium nuetral rosey pink - really pretty not "fuchsia " at all - a horrible name imho!!!!!!! It scarred me away for a long time before I tried it - but it is BEAUTIFUL on!!!! really bright but nautral, love it, esp with a bronzer!!!. Kind of reminds oh of cha cha creme blush from paula dorf.
THIS IS MY HG LIPSTICK!!!!!! I LOOOOVE THIS COLOR, the perfect ripe pinky peachy color - the cg website says this is "cool" but can be worn by a lot more people than that!!!!! I love this color, either dabbed sparingly on my lips OR built up for a brighter color. I love this color even more than the day I got it and have worn it most days since - I will actually hit the bottom of this and I never do that!!!! I also love the formula, it keeps my lips moist and plump. LADIES, THIS IS THE PERFECT COLOR IF YOU LOVE RIPE PINKY/PEACHY COLORS, EXACTLY WHAY YOU THINK THE COLOR FROM THE TUBE WILL BE. If cg every changes this color I will FREAK. I LOOOOOVE THIS LIPSTICK. ps - I love cg wetslicks as well and LOVE the darker wine color over this lipstick, as well as the mauve one. PERFECT!!!!!!!!
Lipstick -Revlon - Moisturous Lipcolor-All [DISCONTINUED]

I ADORE these lipsticks - my all time fav with the new gc incredifull. I also believe they are here to stay, unlike the reviewer who thought they were being discontinued (I am sure her store needed the space for new inventory so they took these lipsticks away, smaller stores do things like this - but I find these lipsticks everywhere fully stocked and still on the revlon website) They feel soooo good in the winter or any time - I have may fav's apricot, tangerine, nude glisten, honey slip - all are great, I think I have about 8 in total over the years and I love them all. I hope revlon comes out with new colors, they have MANY to choose from, but new colors are soooo much fun!!!!! now you know my secret hobby! These are wonderful lipsticks as good or better than the expensive department store brands!!!!!
These are my fav lipsticks of all time, I own many of them and love all my choices. I wish there were more shades for warm or nuetral girls, but maybe they will add more colors soon. I have a hard time applying the lighter shades evenly on bare lips, but with a dab of a darker shade as a base the pale ones glide over the base shade easily to give full, even coverage so I don't have any problems and I am happy to do this. They really do make my large lips feel and look full and soft, and with daily use I find that my lips stay this way all day and night - YES!!!!!! I love rip fig for every day, and really like honey rose as well. the peach shade is also fun, and I like mauve souffle as well, nice subtle shimmer. I think their site is ok, but I find that they list some colors as "cool" when they could be worn by warm toned girls as well. I am always afraid of "cool" colors, and almost did not try some of these, like honey rose because I thought I color would be off, I am sooo glad I tried them!!! I do think there are some shades that are a bit barbie pinkish or frosty, but that may make some people happy. I do with these would fit into my lipstick holder, they are a tad to long, too bad but this will in no way keep me from loving them. The color lasts and lasts better than ANYTHING I ave tried, even the long wearing lipsticks!!!!!!!! ps - I LOVE TO USE WET SLICKS ON TOP!!!!!!!!!!! THE BEST LIPSTICK/GLOSS COMBO ON THE MARKET!!!!!!!
Lipstick -Cover Girl - Incredifull - latte lush - 984
amy212 3/18/2006 5:40:00 AM
I agree, the color is darker than expected, I was looking for a pale nude and this is more medium redish brown - like "brazil nut" from loreal, a great warm medium brown. I am happy with it and will wear it - no return here , but I was looking forward to a pale nude lip and this is not it. I do wish the display was not a bit misleading so I only give it 4 stars, but a great lipstick if this is what you are looking for - and would be FAB on a woman with darker skin - I am very pale, "buff beige" in their trublend foundation - my fav foundation for dry skin and dry climates having said that, I love the feel of these ipsticks - really make my lips full and soft, and using them every day, my lips stay full and soft long after I take the lipstick off YES!!!!!!!
I am suprized how much I did not like this - the taste was really bad and fake to the point that I can't use it - I wish it was bought at cvs ect so I could take it back, but no. I also don't really like squeeze glosses, I perfer a deer foot wand, but I wanted to try this. too bad, wet slicks are my fav gloss!!!
Lip Gloss -Cover Girl - WetSlicks Lip Gloss - Wine Shine
amy212 3/18/2006 5:28:00 AM
I too love this gloss, it looks much darker in the tube than on your lips - very nautral but pigmented. I wold have passed this gloss up if it was not for the reviews, I would have thought it was to dark. I am very happy I bought this and will replace when I need to. I love wet slicks - I think they are the best gloss on the market - bar none. great stuff
This is a true holy grail gloss!!!!!! I LOVE THIS SOOOO MUCH. I wear it every day and I will buy it again and again - the perfect nautral gloss color!!!! I have the chanel gloss just like it, but this is sooo much easier to apply and wear! The sent does not bother me and I am sensitive to things like that. I am soo glad I bought it!!!!!! Will buy more of these. I also love peaches and gleam
This is truly a holy grain product for me and I will never attempt to wear any mascara without it. My skin is very dry - but I do a lot to my skin to get that dewy look and feel - and this really regrades my mascara. I can't wear any mascara because my lashes and my eye area are just so oily from eye products that all mascara smear all over the place to the point that I just gave up mascara until I tried lash underwear. This white cream coats my lashes well even over the oils ect and dried to an excelent texture for the application of mascara, and when it dries the mascara also dries and does not budge, even when touching my wet eye area when horrble smudging would always happen. I love this with my extreme definition rimmel mascara - and I think underwear for lashes helpd in the removal of the mascara as well. I wet my fingers with jojoba oil and press the lashes between my fingers gently and the mascara comes off like the "tubes" you have heard of - with no residue!!! The EASIEST mascara to remove using the underwear!!! I love it - and I have tried other companies but origins is the best!!!!! I can keep for a long time (bad, I know) and it does not dry out and get crumbly like a lot of others I have tried. You also need a fraction of macara. I do all my building, volumn, length ect with the underwear like it is normal mascara and then just cover the white with a small amount of mascara the whole thing is perfect until you take it off.
HA, I bought their mousse eye shadow in peach light. It is sooo going back, It remind me of nuetrogena 3 in 1 shimmers which dry out my eyes and make me look crepey AND creasy because of their creme to powder finish. This comes in a TINY pot and is moussey and dries to a powder finish, even though i though it would be better, being for dry older eyes and all. Not as bad as powder, but not very good either and is was 16.99 for a TINY AMOUNT - ,11 OZ. I EXPECT MUCH MUCH MORE THAN THIS FOR 16.99. I expect more from a product for half that!!! If this was wet and wild for 1.99 it would be worth that (you could wear it on your cheeks ect) but not much else. PLUS I RESENT THAT THERE WERE NO PRICES ON THE SHELF. I GOT STICKER SHOCK AT CHECKOUT AT KMART!!!The color is pretty brassy and outdated as well (and I love warm tones ect) and there was too much piecy shimmer like a cheap lipgoss. YOU FAIL VITAL RADIANCE

I hated this foundation - I tested it on my WRIST at whole foods - it looked nice, but on my FACE it looked horrible, HUGE pores, no slip, can't blend, VERY DRY - HORRIBLE - got my money back. ITCK
