Highlighters -Bobbi Brown - Shimmerbrick Shimmer Brick Compact (All colors)
GreeneyedGal 5/10/2004 1:24:00 AM
I have been eyeing these shimmerbricks forever! I'm a PPP with brown hair/green eyes and loved the idea of the pink one but I already own so many shades...thought the bronze one was gorgeous but didn't think I could pull it off...well I received the bronze one as a gift (much to my surprise!) this weekend and I am infatuated with this product! The colors look amazing on my eyes (the ruddiest shade of brown really makes the green in my eyes stand out) and as a bronzer this is gorgeous! I just bought MAC Peachykeen which I love for everyday use and I dusted a little bit of this for a subtle, shimmery glow. I received all kinds of compliments today...now I want to check out the beige one after reading all the rave reviews!!!
Blush -MAC - Sheertone Shimmer blush in Peachykeen

This is my summer blush. I was torn between buying this and Trace Gold, but opted for Peachy Keen because it gave me more color. These sheertone shimmers are FANTASTIC! I have fair to medium skin and find this to be the perfect peachy natural flush. It doesn NOT look like I'm wearing blush. It gives me a pretty, natural flush but in a peachy shade as oppossed to my typical pink. I can see this not working on more olive-toned people but a few swipes of this on my cheeks and I'm golden-literally!:)
Fabulous stuff. The pot looks small but there's a whole lotta product inside that will last you a long time. A little does go a long way...covers up my under-eye circles in a flash...gotta love this!
I have owned this color for years...but I haven't worn it in years. I bought Irma La Douce years ago to wear as a liner and sadly lost interst in it...then I received Oasis in the Stila Shimmer palette and noticed that several viewers loved the combo of Oasis as a wash and La Douce as a crease color. So I dug out my La Douce and applied it to the crease...my first reaction-EW! Gotta wash it off...but then I left it on for awhile and discovered that this antiquey olive green and gold eye shadow is so unique! The combo (with Twig as a liner) makes my eyes appear to be HUGE...I'll be digging this color out more...
To me, Oasis is a toned down version of Stila Sun. It's more of a soft gold as oppossed to the peachy gold of Sun, my all-time favorite gold eyeshadow. That being said, I love this color! I appreciate it for not being as peachy as sun but it really does make my eyes pop in a more subtle way. I tried pairing it with La Douce in the crease as a previous reviewer mentioned they loved to wear the combo and surprisingly it works! Got this in the Stila Shimmer palette.
Beauftiful bronzey blush...Can be applied sheer for a sun-kissed glow or built up for a deeper bronzey affect...I'm a PPP and usually wear pinker toned bluses but I adore this stuff after years of wearing it!
This is soo pretty! Reminds me of a "bluer" version of Cloud, another favorite of mine. I wore this as a wash with moonlight as a highlight and the Violet Smudge Pot to line and it was a great combo! I have this in the Stila Sheer palette.
Lovely natural wash for the eyes! There's some shimmer but it's not over-the-top. I applied it right over my eye shadow base and it's a tad frosty...next time I'll try another reviewers suggestion of applying it over a nude shadow for a better application. I have this in the Stila Shimmer Palette.
Got this sample from Sephora...it's very soft and pretty. I can actually detect the baby powder scent in it that others don't. It's really nice for day and I agree with the previous reviewer that the lasting power isn't great...But this is nice!
Really Pretty...This shade is nearly identical to MAC paint in Mauvism and the quality is en par as well, IMO. It's a tad sheerer than MAC's version but still so pretty and stays put! And it's a lot less expensive. Looks wonderful on green eyes!
This is a really pretty icy lavender shimmer. It's easy to apply and boy does this stay put! It's fantastic stuff to wear on eyes in hot, humid weather as it doesn't fall off...I've even gone swimming with this on and it doesn't budge!
Lip Gloss -Victoria's Secret - Mirror Mirror Shiny Lip Gloss- Pink Slip

This is a very pretty gloss but it's not for me. It makes my fair-to-medium skintone look washed out. Doesn't bring out my lips or eyes which is what I like in a gloss...however, I still thinks it's a very pretty sheer pink that would lovely on others..just not on me.
Lip Treatments -Victoria's Secret - Pleasingly Plump Lip Enhancer

I was duped into buying this a few years ago--it really does look like concealer applied to the lips...there is no "plumping action" going on...waste of $!
I have had this for two years and surprisingly, it's been my least favorite Stila palette purchase. All of the colors are lovely and I will turn back to this for the lovely blushes (which are nearly all gone) and for viola and poise, two of my favorite colors..petal and linen are just, well, boring!) I know I paired all of these colors when I got this two years ago but now I just use certain ones once in awhile...I wouldn't purchase this again if it were still for sale.
Just got this in the mail from Sephora and it's AWESOME! The color is a deep, rich plum. I applied a very thin line and smudged since I don't wear a lot of make up to work and it's gorgeous! I paired it with twilight as a lid color and a thin line of the smudgepot with a little bit of moonlight on my brow bone and inner corners of my eyes--my green eyes are GLOWING!
