Have been using for all most three weeks with no noticible results thus far. A little disappointed for the price tag and hype on Sephora.com.I wear mascara often and wanted something to strengthen my lashes.They get a little thin and fragile upon a daily mascara ritual. Not too impressed with this product thus far. I will update on any recent developments as I continue to implement the Lush Lash Sytem into my nightime routine. *UPDATE: Still no noticible results. I have been using every night diligently and applying generously. Very disappointed in the product performance. The box really is boastful claiming it does this and that. Too expensive for a mediocre product.
Can appear a little too orange and sparkly. The other Illuminators are more sparkly though compared to this one. I do like that it features many natural ingredients. Not super impressed with this one.
Blush -MAC - My Highland Honey (A Tartan Tale Holiday '10)
EmbalmerBabe 12/1/2010 9:11:00 PM
I love this shade and am so glad I got the opportunity to try it. I thought it may be too orange or yellow. It shows up as a bright smooth pinky peach. I am fair with porcelain skin, and this looks superb. It looks scary in the pan or in product photos. But on the face it adds warmth and a youthful vibrance to your cheeks.
Great fall and winter shade of a deep red, chocolate influenced russett color. Subtle shimmer.I could do with more shimmer personally, but this is nice.
I LOVE the new Superslick liners. They are hands down my most favorite liquid eyeliner. The brush is phenomenal and makes application effortless. The formula is great and lasts forever and does not smudge. They are easy to get off with cleanse off oil. I cannot stand the Liquid Last Liners, these are MUCH MUCH MUCH better. The colors are amazing and gorgeous.

Awesome color a beautiful goldish green. Superslick liners are awesome. I love them and I am on the prowl to collect them all. The brush is great and so is the formula.If you love liquid eyeliners you must try these.=)
Eyeliner -MAC - Superslick Liquid Eye Liner - Pure Show
EmbalmerBabe 9/15/2010 2:20:00 PM
A beautiful bold 24 K gold liquid eyeliner, shiny and rich in appearance. Perfect for the the holidays.The brush is FABULOUS. I love the brush, it has long precise soft felt type tip that makes application very simple and effortless.With practice you could make some great winged looks with this brush.This liner has a watery consistency so you have to be careful when you apply it because it can easily seep into your eye and cause irritation. I try to brush the applicator on the side of the container to get the excess liquid off so it does not all travel down inside the eye area.If you are lining the inner corner it will travel into the tear duct if you have too much on the brush. The only problem with this is that you barely get any product at all for the price, they come out to about 20.00 a piece. It applies well, lasts well, and the applicator brush is great.
Primer/ Corrector -Urban Decay - All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray
EmbalmerBabe 8/26/2010 2:16:00 PM
I just don't know about this.For the price it should have better packaging, not an inexpensive plastic spray bottle for one. For two I am not sure this really does anything at all, except provide a cooling refreshing sensation on your skin upon first application.It feels lovely on your skin while you spray it and immediately afterward.Be careful it will smudge your eyemakeup with even an indirect mist. I did not notice a difference with this making my makeup last longer.It does not smell bad which is good. I don't know =/ I love Urban Decay,this just has me not thrilled or impressed. =/
Urban Decay's new lip gloss "Lip Junkie" Summer 2010: If you are a lip gloss "junkie" you will probably admire this, it's nice, it's luxurious, it smells and tastes lovely.It has a sweet vanilla mint flavor, that is more on the natural side, than the artificial cloying side.It's not sugary sweet tasting, the flavor is subtle and the scent is also sublte. The texture is luxurious and not on the sticky side.It softens your lips. The first color I picked up was Naked, a lovely natural shade. Great for everyday wear.Can't wait to pair this over Naked lipstick. The applicator is also nice because it's a squeeze tube, I don't have to bother with a doe foot applicator, thus being more hygenic and great for on the go.
I finally got my mitts on UD's new palette. I love the chocolate brown velvet flocking on the case and the golden embossing.The double ended 24/7 in Zero and Whiskey+a mini PP is nice too. I really like the color Virgin and I hope they decide to make it a full size, same with Whiskey eyeliner.Virgin is a great lid wash color to hide any veins or discoloration on fair skinned beauties.This palette offers a great array of neutral shades and options to create a glamorous smokey eye. Darkhorse was not a favorite it seemed chalky to me. This is a permanent item in UD's line now so please DO NOT pay an arm and leg for it on Ebay. It is a little too hyped, none the less nice. A must have? No because most of us have identical neutrals in our kits all ready.
I don't know if I ever reviewed this guy, this is such a complex, interesting sumptuous scent. I can't really describe it but it smells so rich and velvety.Lasts forever, you get what you pay for.The price is worth it. Jo Malone is top quality.Love her stuff.
Highlighters -Christian Dior - Shimmer Powder 002 Amber Diamond, Spring 08
EmbalmerBabe 8/10/2010 3:24:00 AM
This is an ultra fine, jet milled silky textured highlighter. I am fair and it comes off as a glowy champagne veil on my cheeks. It's subtle and not tacky. It's not a glitterbomb like some MAC MSF's can be, it's a sophistacated shimmer.Packaging is super high quality, very sturdy with a mirror the only thing it is lacking is a brush.My Dior bronzer came with a decent brush so for 50.00 I don't know why this did not.Oh well. I would not purchase again because this will last for years.
I wanted to buy this, I would have bought this on account of the beautiful deeep shimmering scarlett, ruby jewel like shade. And how can you resist UD's great packaging with the dagger at the end of the case, the beautiful lucent cover and shiny lavender case? It's so cute. After testing this out with three applications on my lips the color of GASH was lovely so deeply vibrant, and glam. The problem was the TASTE.The taste was a terrible chemical taste. AWFUL, nothing like Creme Caramel or Creme Brulee, it was complete gross chemical taste. My other two did not taste like this. This would be a great product if it were not for the taste, I tasted my lips while wearing this and the deal was OFF.It was bad.
Tinted Moisturizer -Laura Mercier - Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 - Oil Free
EmbalmerBabe 7/13/2010 6:48:00 PM
I am in love with this product. I wish I had found this sooo long ago.This is my new favorite foundation and I will continue to use this exclusively and will no longer try anything else.It applies effortlessly, matches my skin ***perfectly*** (I have the Porcelain shade), is lightweight and natural looking. Plus it has added SPF 25 protection. I LOVE THIS STUFF. It's about 45+ dollars and worth every cent, the quality is amazing.The tube is big and will last you a very long time. The first 100% perfect color match I have ever had with a foundation. I have had bad luck or just not the greatest results with Chanel foundation,MAC,and Bobbi Brown.MAC liquids caused breakouts. Chanel did not apply right, nor did Bobbi. LM is my new favorite line.A+++
I just picked this gem up today, it is gorgeous. It has a glowing peachy aura about it with a luminescent pink quality, it lights up your face and this is a smashing summer cheek shade. It buffs on like a dream with the 187 skunk brush. Goes on like butter and looks like a dream.I saw pics of this in the past and it did not appeal to me, in person this is truly a stand out product from all the rest. I marked to not purchase again because one MSF will last me a looooonnnngggg time. A+
