I have PPP skin w/ rose undertones. It does nothing well. This pair of e/s doesn't blend well at all. The dark, dark navy/black is awful for e/l as it gets EVERYWHERE -- very smudgy. I can't even do a smokey eye w/ it because it won't blend nicely.

I have PPP skin w/ rose undertones. Things it gets right: The olive green in this duo is a fabulous color, very earthy and dark w/o shimmer The shadow works well wet as liner Things it gets wrong: awful, bulky packaging the sandy yellow color is disgusting I wouldn't buy again because I don't want the sandy color :(

I have PPP skin w/ rose undertones. Things it gets right: 1) it looks pretty in the packaging Things it gets wrong: 1) Um, everything? seriously -- the dark blue looks like a black eye on my pale skin, the light blue went on really UNEVENLY -- it looks like i have a cheap, awful base under it, but I don't 2) the packaging is bulky crud I wouldn't get another one of these if I could get it for free!!

I have PPP skin w/ rose undertones. Things it gets right: 1) the shimmery, soft "bark" brown color is AMAZING 2) the teal/blue color is great in small doses Things it screwed up: 1) the teal doesn't last all day :( 2) the packaging is crummy. the little applicator is cheap and the thing is WAY bigger than how much e/s is in there I wouldn't buy this again, because, even though I really love the brown and would like to keep using it, I don't want to pay for the blue color that isn't nearly as good as the blues I have from MAC and even Estee Lauder

I have PPP skin w/ rose undertones. Things it gets right: 1) the colors, like many HIP's, are rather nice 2) it has shimmer, but it doesn't over do it 3) i LOVE the dark purple in this, it's very flattering w/ my grey-blue eyes Things it got wrong: 1) the quality just isn't here. they don't last on me 2) the light colored one is boring 3) packaging is way bigger than how much e/s is in there Meh, I wish i could get the dark shade in a better quality e/s

I have PPP skin w/ rose undertones. Things it does well: 1) the colors are rather nice. The green is a nice olive shade, a little on the forresty-green side. 2) they do quite well as liners when wet Things it misses: 1) when applied dry, it is hard to control 2) it flakes when applied dry 3) it creases when applied dry 4) applied wet, it is so dark it can only really be used as eye liner 5) the packaging is dumb, there isn't much e/s in there I really liked the colors on this at first, but honestly, the quality just isn't there
I have PPP skin w/ rose undertones. Things it does well: 1) the turquoise is on the greener side of the scale, and I like that because most turquoises tend to be a little too blue for my purposes 2) I like that it comes with a little mirror 3) the turquoise is pretty bright (for a few hours) Things it got wrong: 1) the cream shade is AWFUL. it doesn't highlight, it barely even shows up. Useless. 2) the package makes it look like you're getting a lot. You aren't. it's just a huge package 3) the e/s doesn't even stay on that well or that long BAD product -- and I have some other HIP's that are pretty good :(

I have PPP skin w/ rose undertones. Things it does well: 1) sensible packaging 2) works okay as a base if you don't have anything better Things it gets wrong: 1) it SMEARS 2) it is like a very pale champaigne, NOT golden at all. 3) it dries up super fast 4) it is like vaseline going on -- yuck This stuff is awful. I use it as a base sometimes just to get rid of it!
I have PPP skin w/ rose undertones. Things this does well: 1) the BEST black e/s I have ever used. the shade is perfect, it's not harsh at all 2) blends incredibly well! 3) never falls off on my face 4) incredible as eye liner Things it does poorly: 1) again, Mary kay pacaging is dumb if you don't have a MK case LOVE it. can't say enough about how great it is. It has no shimmer or anything and does such a great job of looking soft -- which I find many black e/s just can't do
I have PPP skin w/ rose undertones. Things this e/s does well: 1) both colors (a clear, crayon blue and a light, flowery violet) are very pretty and soft and build nicely 2) they work great when wet as e/l 3) they don't seem to fade, crease or dust off over the day Things it does poorly: 1) the packaging is AWFUL. if you don't have a mary kay carrying case to put this in it can be a pain. Keep the box to put it in if this is the case. 2) it's a bit pricey for how tiny it is I wouldn't buy it again because I don't like the purple *that* much. I wish I could buy the blue separately when it runs out.
I have PPP skin w/ rose undertones. Things this e/s does well: 1) it is very vivid! 2) it does shimmery very well, doesn't flake off (which is why I sometimes hate shimmer) 3) a little bit goes a LONG way Things it does poorly: 1) On me, it is VERY orangey. I expected it to be a little bit softer toned ( even so, it is very pretty as an orange ) 2) it tends to build up VERY FAST. it's hard to get a soft look out of this color pigment I would reccomend the shade as long as the buyer knows just how deep it is (it sometimes has an almost rusty look to it!)

I've got PPP skin with rose undertones. Things this creamy eyeshadow stick does well: 1) it works great as an eyeliner when applied w/ an angled brush 2) it has great staying power and is VERY vivid 3) the color is gorgeous. it's deep and velvety and it has a brightness to it that is SHIMMER FREE and I absolutely hate shimmer and glitter. Things it does poorly: 1) I NEVER swipe it on, as is from the tube because the tube is WAY too big to be precise with and certainly not a good shape for applying e/s 2) it tends to dry up rather quickly The reason I gave it 4 lippies but said I would not buy it again is that, while this is a very good silver e/s, I have found others (notably, MAC eyeshadows that I wet and use for the same purpose) that I find -- easier to apply --
Things this mascara did nicely: 1) extended my lash length 2) did not clump Things it did poorly: 1) got mascara dust under my eyes as the day wore on (WHICH I HATE) 2) HORRIBLE packaging. the wand is too long, it doesn't taper off at the end, the part you hold onto is shaped in a strange way and isn't big/long enough to get a good hold of I would buy it again because I like the gel-like quality of it, but honestly, CG lash exact was pretty much the same. It does do a better job of NOT CLUMPING than any other mascara I've tried so that is why I gave it 4 lippies
My skin is not sensitive and I had excessive perspiration before this product. Certain Dri is simply amazing. While the application is a downer (a roll on. the product often runs down your sides -- it's liquid), this product keeps me almost completely dry and I had excessive sweating before. I still have stains, but much smaller and less um, aromatic. I use it almost every night before bed because this way it won't stain clothes (and it will) and it has been long enough since I shaved so it won't itch/hurt (and it does when you've just shaved). Hands down best anti-persperant I've tried.
