Lip Gloss -Clinique - SugarBlue Sheer Shimmers Glosswear
fletch50 2/16/2004 5:22:00 PM
I really like this gloss. It doesn't appear blue on the lips, it adds a cool toned shimmer. I tried wearing this over MAC Bunny Pink l/s and I received tons of compliments. It made the pink appear a bit darker and cooler toned. The gloss doesn't have any scent and it has a great texture. I definitely want to purchase more of these glosses.
Lipstick -Clinique - Long last Lipstick - Bamboo Pink
fletch50 2/13/2004 5:25:00 PM
This is a gorgeous nude-pink colour. I usually don't use Clinique, but I was pleasantly surprised by this when I got it as a free gift. The lipstick lasts for a long time, without drying out my lips. I think I will be buying this one again.
I was totally sucked in by Stila's cute packaging. I love the variety of colours that come in this palette. However, I find the actual product to be very sticky. It almost feels like I am smearing Vaseline on my face. You also have to apply a lot of product to make the glitter show up. I could probably find a drugstore item that would give the same effect for way cheaper.
This is an opaque nude gloss, slightly darker than C-thru. It smells really, really good. However, I am too pale to pull this colour off, even with a darker lip liner or lipstick underneath. Had I been able to see it in person before purchasing, I wouldn't have gotten this one.
This is really pretty. In the tube it is a frosty white with a pink tinge, on my lips it just gives a bit of shimmer. I really, really like the scent of this gloss. However, I don't think I would buy this one again. I had to order it over the phone, and if I had seen it in person I probably wouldn't have gotten it.
Palettes -Too Faced - "The Icon" Starmaker Palette

Overall this is a really good palette. You get an awesome selection of colours. The Icon is the more colourful of the two palettes that Too Faced has put out. All of the products are of high quality and the e/s blend really well. Like the other reviewer mentioned, the tools that come with it are absolutely useless. The one thing I did not like is that the descriptions on the box, sephora's website and Too Faced's website are very misleading. They make it sound like you are getting both colours from the eyeshadow duos and lip gloss duos they list, when in fact you are only getting one colour. Just make sure you realize this before ordering so that you are not dissapointed. Overall, it is a pretty good palette with a nice variety of colours. I would really like to try the other palette as well.
I got this in the set of three Lip Polishes that came out this xmas. Of the three in the package, this was my least favorite. I am a PPP, and on it's own this is just way too pale for me. I will have to use this one over top of darker lipsticks.
Highlighters -MAC - MAC for Playboy Playmate Pink Glitter Cream
fletch50 1/1/2004 3:02:00 PM
The same thing happened with this as it did with the Playboy l/s, I was too afraid to touch it for awhile! Once I did, I found that this is a great sheer pink highlighter. I didn't see too much glitter, but as other reviewers have said it is deeper down in the package. If MAC were to reissue this I would definitely grab another one.
This l/s is soooo gorgeous. It took me a lot of nerve to actually try it! It looked so cute untouched in the tube. This l/s shows up as a medium pink on me and it looks really pretty. It definitely has more pink in it than the Plink! Lustre l/s. I really wish this colour wasn't LE, and I am regretting not getting more when they were in stock :(
I really, really like this lipstick. In the tube it looks really scary, but it actually goes on sheerer and gives a great plum colour. I actually had people asking me what l/s I was wearing, and that usually doesn't happen to me. I would definitely repurchase this one.
This gloss is really pretty. It is a mauve-rose with lots of shimmer. It has quite a bit of pigmentation, so the colour does show up. I don't mind the mint scent or the tingling sensation. I will most likely repurchase this one.
Twisted is a great fuschia with purple undertones. I have never seen CanCan, so I really can't make a comparison between them. I didn't have a problem with the pigmentation in this Nars e/s. One swipe gave me good coverage. I would definitely repurchase this one.
Santorini is a gorgeous deep purple with glitter in the pan. However, when applied it goes on a lot sheerer and loses some of the sparkle. I found this shadow looked best when applied wet and used as a liner. It looks really good with Nars Twisted e/s. I am undecided as to whether I would repurchase this.
I really liked this gloss. It is a great opaque, nude gloss with no shimmer. This didn't turn orange on me, as some of the other reviewers have said happened to them. I find these glosses to have good staying power. I didn't find the mint scent to be too strong and this didn't make my lips burn. There was just a slight tingle. I will probably be buying other colours of this gloss.
Lipstick -MAC - Frost - Sexie (Eddie Izzard Collection)
fletch50 12/20/2003 10:19:00 PM
This product it soooo gorgeous in the tube. The other reviewers below have done an excellent job of describing the colour, so I won't repeat it. I am a PPP, and this is a very dramatic colour on me. For normal everyday use, I have to blot it into a stain to make it more wearable. It is still very pretty worn this way. If you can still find it, I would highly recommend checking it out.
