(0 - 5 points, 5 = excellent, 0 = very bad) pigmentation: 5 texture: 5 blendable?: 4 colour-fast: 4 versatile?: 3 staying power: 5 TOTAL POINTS: 26 of 30 = very good My first BB pot rouge and I like it sooo much! The word "pale" may lead you wrong - this one is very pigmented and a mid-tone pink. Use a light hand for a gorgeous natural flush of colour - but it's very buildable if you want too. The texture is great and it blends like a dream! The staying power is great too - lasts all day on my combination skin! Though it is a cream blush, I experienced no breakouts. I tried it on the lips too and it looks like a darker version of MACs VG Gaga on my lips. I had to use a lip balm underneath, cause it would have been too drying otherwise. Recommendable if you want some colour and a long-lasting blush!
(0 - 5 points, 5 = excellent, 0 = very bad) pigmentation: 4 texture: 4 blendable?: 3 colour-fast: 4 versatile?: 4 staying power: 4 TOTAL POINTS: 23 of 30 = good This blush looks darker in the pan than on skin, as it's a Sheertone blush. It looks like a rose colour with a plum undertone and with a light brown undertone on my pale skin. I have had more blendable Sheertone blushes - but it still blends quite ok. What I like is, that it's buildable and that makes it versatile too. It's my go-to colour if I want a rose-coloured blush for a daytime or nighttime look.
(0 - 5 points, 5 = excellent, 0 = very bad) pigmentation: 5 texture: 5 blendable?: 4 colour-fast: 4 versatile?: 4 staying power: 5 TOTAL POINTS: 27 of 30 = very good Def. one of my most used MAC eyeshadows! I often use it for a shimmery but not too dramatic smokey eye. I thinks this suits any eye colour and really any look where you want a bit of shimmer. Plus it has a great texture and blends like a dream. I will always buy again!
(0 - 5 points, 5 = excellent, 0 = very bad) pigmentation: 3 texture: 5 blendable?: 5 colour-fast: 4 versatile?: 4 staying power: 5 TOTAL POINTS: 26 of 30 = very good I love this eyeshadow. It's not super pigmented but very buildable and it blends like a dream. If I want a shimmery smokey eye, I often reach for it. It's a good colour if you want shimmer but don't want to go too crazy. It suits my green eyes and pale skin very much. Def. one of my most used MAC eyeshadows.
(0 - 5 points, 5 = excellent, 0 = very bad) brush: 4 clumping-free: 4 easy application: 4 staying power: 5 tube*: 4 durability**: 5 TOTAL POINTS: 26 of 30 = very good * Right amount of product? Clumping due to remains of product? ** Does the consistency change in time? Bourjois Volumizer Mascara is a 2 step mascara. Step 1 is for more definition (you add a light black coat with a smaller brush). Step 2 is for Volume (the actual mascara with a bigger rounded brush). Both brushes (step 1 + 2) use the same product - only that brush 1 automatically adds a smaller amount of it. There is hardly any clumping (I can imagine there would be if you apply to much of the 2nd coat) and it really volumizes very good. I'm very satisfied - I have a better result than with most high end mascaras I tried!
Liquid -Bourjois - Healthy Mix Foundation ] [DISCONTINUED]

(0 - 5 points, 5 = excellent, 0 = very bad) coverage*: 4 texture: 5 feeling on the skin: 5 skin-type**: 5 blendable?: 5 staying power: 4 TOTAL POINTS: 28 of 30 = excellent * Is the coverage what it's supposed to be? ** Does it suit the skin type(s) it's supposed to be for? OMG! The best drug store foundation I have ever had (see points above - they tell you all)! It has a semi-matte finish, so it's suitable for combination skin (I have an oily T-zone) and doesn't make you look dull at the same time. I like the concept: "radiance, hydration, antioxidant, energy". The consistency is liquid but still creamy and it goes on and blends like a dream (tried with a foundation and a duo fibre brush). I use shade No. 51 Vanille Clair, which is one of the few drugstore colours that suit my fair skin. I hope Bourjois never discontinous!!!
This fat balm covers your lips with a pink colour that's quite buildable and can get a really intense fuchsia pink like that. It moistures nicely and it smells sugary sweet. One con is that the stick is very thick and so it's not that easy to apply it to the lips. I also tried it on the cheeks and it gives a nice rosy colour if you blend it in with your fingers - but it doesn't really sink in and so I wouldn't use it again for that purpose! But it's still a nice (and cute looking!) product for this price!
Lip Gloss -Lancome - Juicy Tubes World Tour in Apple Shibuya

(0 - 5 points, 5 = excellent, 0 = very bad) pigmentation: 1 texture: 4 feeling on the lips: 5 colour-fast: 2 versatile?: 5 staying power: 4 TOTAL POINTS: 21 of 30 = average You can see a little bit of shimmer in the packaging but it doesn't show up on the lips - goes on clear. The staying power is good and I like that it's not too sticky. I like the smell/taste, it's fresh and juicy. A very nice everyday gloss and definetly a highlight if you collect Juicy Tubes!
(0 - 5 points, 5 = excellent, 0 = very bad) pigmentation: 4 texture: 5 feeling on the lips: 5 colour-fast: 3 versatile?: 5 staying power: 3 TOTAL POINTS: 25 of 30 = very good I'm fair skinned and have low pigmented lips - this is the best nude lipstick I have tried so far! It gives just the right amount of colour to tone down my lips without washing me out. Plus it's sooo wearable! I hope MAC never discontinious this!!!
(0 - 5 points, 5 = excellent, 0 = very bad) pigmentation: 5 texture: 4 feeling: 4 colour-fast: 4 versatile?: 1 staying power: 5 TOTAL POINTS: 23 of 30 = good This colour rocks! It looked like a middle-tone red with a coral undertone on my lips (the're quite low pigmented). I never experienced such an excellent staying power from a MAC lipstick. I drank and I showered (!) and there was still something left! But this lipsticks is not for the ladies that like it natural - it definetly screams "look at me" and it can not really be applied sheer because of the high pigmentation.
Lip Gloss -MAC - Devilishly Stylish (Venomous Villains)

(0 - 5 points, 5 = excellent, 0 = very bad) pigmentation: 2 texture: 5 feeling on the lips: 5 colour-fast: 1 versatile?: 5 staying power: 5 TOTAL POINTS: 23 of 30 = good As others wrote before - I just wish this lipglass would have more colour payoff! It looks so pretty in the tube, just a little bit of that colour showing on the lips and it would be perfect! So I'm a little disappointed that I got a gloss that's just shimmery now... At least the texture is the typical high quality from MAC - and the packaging is sooo great! :)
Lipstick -MAC - Innocence, Beware! (Venomous Villains)

(0 - 5 points, 5 points = excellent, 0 points = very bad) pigmentation: 2 texture: 5 feeling on the lips: 5 colour-fast: 2 versatile?: 5 staying power: 3 TOTAL POINTS: 22 of 30 = good This doesn't show up frosty on my lips as others have reviewed - what I'm a little disappointed of is that it doesn't show up very much on my lips (they're not very pigmented). Anyway, it's a nice nude colour, very versatile and can be applied very easily even without a mirror. And of course I love the packaging!
(0 - 5 points, 5 = excellent, 0 = very bad) pigmentation: 4 texture: 3 blendable?: 4 colour-fast: 4 versatile?: 3 staying power: 5 TOTAL POINTS: 23 of 30 = good A very nice colour which is a very smokey dark grey or black (depending on how much you use). There is a little fallout from the glitter but not too much.
Polishes -MAC - Earthly Harmony (F/W 2010 Nail Trends)

(0 - 5 points, 5 = excellent, 0 = very bad) covering power*: 5 easy application?**: 4 smooth application?***: 4 versatile?: 4 colour-fast: 5 staying power: 3 TOTAL POINTS: 25 of 30 = very good * after two coats ** good brush? texture? *** streaks? If you like muddy-brownish nail polishes, this one's perfect for you! The texture is quite liquid, but still creamy - one thick layer or two thin layers provide excellent coverage. The colour on the nails is 100% the same as it looks like in the bottle - except that the golden glitter doesn't really show up on your nails. One of my favourite fall/winter colours - totally LOVE it!
Lotions/ Creams -LUSH - Soft Coeur Massage Bar (The Honeymooner)
dea2407 9/23/2010 7:54:00 AM
OOOHHH MY GOD! This smells so gorgeous!!! I fell in love at first side! Yes, there are peaces of chocolate in it that make a mess. But as other reviewers have told before, you can easily cut out the chocolate "heart". I love to use it instead of a body lotion after a long day and I totally enjoy the smell and feel calm afterwards. It helps me to relax. So if you like sweet scents and don't mind rubbing in oily textures, try this!
