This is MY HG product! :) I love this. It gives me a bright sunny look since I am a fair skinned Asian. I have tried many blushes, but they were too red, too glittery, not pigmented enough, etc. I TRIED THE FAMOUS NAR'S ORGASM but it BARELY shows up on me, and looks too glittery :( However, Coralista did the job! I have pink undertones, but this manage to look good. I tossed out the brush that it came with, and I use my MAC 187 brush instead to apply and swirl and apply it just a little below the cheekbones for a dewy, natural look. If you like sheer, pigmented, yet natural blushes that makes you look more awake, this one is for you. ALSO, I realized that when I apply Benefit Cosmetics' THAT GAL brightening primer, it was more longer-lasting! :) If you like the stronger, bolder look, I suggest something like MAC's DOLLYMIX. (Pink) I wear it everyday (Except on days when I go to the gym when I don't wear makeup) :) Highly recommended! Please vote up if you thought this was helpful :)
I have fair skin (NC20) and this barely shows up on me. When I do get enough product on my face.............it looks like I have irritation/rosacea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not a good idea if you have pink undertones in your skin!
wow i must be really allergic to something in this product. gave me 3 pus filled zits in a DAY. :( will not purchase again. Sensitive skin - Be aware!
I thought I was in love with my Monistat primer, but I love Benefit's That Gal. It makes my pores look smaller, and it smooths out and moisturizes my somewhat dry skin! I also realize that when I have this on with makeup over it, it makes it last longer. I also love the strawberry scent. Really fresh. :)

I don't really have a problem with undereye circles, but I have EYE BAGS which is NOT attractive. Get past the silly name, its a serious serious product. It can cover your under eye circles, and also, BRIGHTEN them! I like it to use it with ooh la lift and I like using ooh la lift for touching up :) When your undereye circles are nicely covered and concealed and brightened, your eye make up will look a gazillion times better. :)
THIS IS MY MOST FAVORITE LIPSTICK I HAVE EVER TRIED....so it is a HG status. Usually I only go for lipglosses since lipsticks like pink, and red look often look silly on me. I wore my usual cultured MAC lipglass and I was looking for a new shade...the MAC sales told me I should try a coral lipstick since he said it would look good on me. I tried on Dressmaker, Dressmaker and I FELL in LOVE..I purchased it. It is everything I want in a lipstick. Peachy, and creamy and naturally vibrant, suitable for any occasion, subtly brightening the face. Even my boyfriend likes it!!! Some people make a comparison to this with MAC Shy Girl lipstick...well..I don't think it's a dupe. Shy Girl on me is frostier, and it's a little more pink than coral. It is a pretty color, but I like this one so much more. SO NOW THEY ARE SOLD OUT!! ITS DISCONTINUEDI tried for 2 months to look for this lipstick but they are sold out everywhere....I tried to look for dupes but no luck So I just spent $40 on this on a website JUST to buy this discontinued shade. It's super expensive I know..but that's just how much I love this. I REALLLLLYYY HOPE THEY MAKE THIS PERMANENT because I love this color so much. (I am NC20, fair skinned, have pink undertones.)
Eye Shadow -Physicians Formula - Baked Collection - Baked Oatmeal
iLoveYoutwo 9/16/2010 6:44:00 PM
!!!!!!This needs more reviews! Because these baked eyeshadows are AMAZING. Let me state this....Usually I do not like Drugstore makeup..but this one is an EXCEPTION. I've been trying to look for cool-toned eyeshadows which is suitable for everyday and I've found it! I always wear Cle De Peau eyeshadows which cost 50 bucks :( or MAC eyeshadow/pigments which cost 15 for one, but this one I really like it and it's a steal. this one cost ONLY $8, AND I LOVEEE IT. It is VERY pigmented, and I ALWAYS get compliments when I wear Physician's Formulas Baked eyeshadow collection.!!!!!!!!! I like to use it with a wet brush over by MAC bare study primer and the color really intensifies and stays on ALL day! If you have tried MAC's All That Glitters and if it ended up looking like you were in a fight (swollen eyes), then this might be for you! I have baked oatmeal and baked smokes. I love both. I want more :) Worth every penny...Glad I found it! :) FYI: I am NC20 with pink undertones, and look horrible with orange / pink shades on eyes.
So... I tried this eye shadow and it looks...awful on me. I am fair skinned (NC20) and this looks orangy-brown..:( Eye shadows i cannot wear are orange and pink. .It makes me look tired but more like I was in a fight. It looks like I have swollen eyes :( When I took this off my eyes looked heaps better. So if you are light skinned, it may not work out for you... :( Try before you buy! :)
Eyeliner -Maybelline - Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner
iLoveYoutwo 9/15/2010 11:11:00 AM
this stuff, is AMAZING! :) I have used Bobbi Brown Gel liner AND Mac Fluidline (which was a dark gray on me when I chose blacktrack), and this one is the best- in terms of COLOR, INTENSITY, LASTING POWER.... I never knew Maybelline had such great eyeliner ! WILL CONTINUE TO BUY MORE. The consistency is creamy, SMOOTH, glides on eyes perfectly...you would NOT believe this is drugstore makeup! It lasts all day too. When I wore MAC/BOBBI BROWN it would fade over time but this just STAYS. JUST. WOW. Go get the intense black color. It's actually pitch black, unlike Bobbi Brown / MAC (which are WASTE of money)
very girly. Best if u have a STRONG eye look.
I get so many compliments from men when I wear this! :) It's that good. GET IT!
I have never used up an entire pan of eyeshadow, this one, I did. I use it almost everyday with satin taupe when I go to class, it looks very natural and it makes your eyes look very bright, especially good when you don't want to look made up. If you love the natural, vibrant look, then GET.THIS.NOW!
This is a sophisticated, and intelligent color. Great for school days.
Amazing. It covers EVERYTHING and looks like I naturally have really good skin. (and I DONT!!!) I use this with Eye bright (on top of Boi ing) .the combination is FANTASTIC. I LOVE IT!!!!! WILL BUY AGAIn and again and again.
