Well I really like this stuff. I know a lot of people have complained that it doesn't show up but I'm a PPP & it works just fine. I also really love the smell, I wasn't even expecting that so it's a nice bonus. I even like the little brush it comes with, I don't know why but it seems to work better w/ it than my nice MAC one.
I bought this because the SA told me it compares to Blue Black, which I still don't know if they will ever bring back (sucks because I loved it!). Anyway, this is *a lot* bluer than Blue Black. At first I was a bit dissapointed becasue of that but I just did 3 coats and it turns out pretty much black w/ a slight blue shimmer, which is really pretty. It's really shiny too. Overall, I'm pleased w/ this & it will do. : )
Oh this is just lovely! I'm so happy I finally bought this one. It's a super shimmery rosey pink shade w/ a slight gold cast. It is pretty chunky but that doesn't bother me in the least. One of the prettiest pigments I've seen! UPDATE(3/29/07) I took off a couple lippies cuz I find this hard to use...too pink for my eyes. But it does make a beautiful lip color mixed w/ clear gloss...that's just a hassel.
This is so nice. I'm glad they decided to bring this back. On me it looks a lot like Frost w/ lavender infused throughout. It looks really pretty used alone all over the lids & I imaging w/ a darker shade in the crease but I havn't tried that yet. I'm happy w/ this purchase!
BE is just awful!! My skin hates this stuff. I tried the foundation a few years back & it just wreaked havoc on my skin. So why the hell was I so compelled to try the Bisque as a concealer?? It's beyond me. The very few places I used it broke out almost immediately, my skin is still trying to recover. Too bad because it really does cover well. Why oh why does my skin hate minerals so?? : (

This stuff is pretty crappy! I can pull off red lips pretty well but this just looks garish. The glitter in it stands out too much & stays on after the color has worn off. I'll probably end up giving this to my boyfriends little sister.
For a while I was scared of trying this beacause I have such oily skin & thought the "shimmer" would just make me look like an oil slick. But I caved & tried it & alas I like it a lot. Does give a slight glow that doesn't look at all oily. Moisturizes my dry, flakey cheeks nicely too.

This is by far MAC's best fragrance. #1 was my favorite until I smelled this one. Too bad they won't be making it permanant, so you can only but the little tiny bottles of it. I wish it lasted a little longer but it does smell beautiful!
This one smells pretty darn nice. Not as nice as #1 but it's more for night time use & going out.

I was really surprised when I tried this one & liked it so much. It's a nice, light summery smell. I have gottn a lot of compliments on it. My mom loved it so much, I bought her a full sized bottle & she was overjoyed! : )
I bought Nocturnelle when I realized that with all the plums/purple e/s I own I didn't have a single super dark, basic purple to either use as a liner or for a straight purple smokey look. This is exactly what I was looking for, although it's all but basic. It's a great, dark, shimmery purple that does make a great liner.
For a few years I had been scared of this particular shade because it looks so freakishly bright. Then Frankie from the Real World San Diego came along & I found myself loving that bright pink color all over her lids w/ black liner. I immediately thought of Sushi Flower & my lemming was born & I'm so glad it was. I love this pink! I manage to wear it on my lids w/ black liner & love the way it looks, just like Frankie's. I sound like such a geek! Beautiful, bright pink though.
I love Powerpoints! Engraved has become a staple for me. It applies so beautifully & lasts forever. These are the best to use on inner rims too.

This is gorgeous! I'm so happy I got it when it came out. People compliment me everytime I wear it. It's really noticeable unlike Mercuric, which is the other one I have. I love Sunbrown!
