I love this!! It's sheer with just the right amount of colour, and the super fine shimmer gives it a pretty glow. With my NW15 complexion I usually stick to pinky shades, but this peach is PERFECT. Not orange, not brown, not pale, and not pink, it is a true peach and it brightens my face perfectly. The sheerness makes it super easy to apply. I have a billion glosses and lipsticks but this one ranks near the top of the list. I also like that the expiry date is clearly printed on the product. Highly, highly recommended!
Wow, this is so nice. I hate that it's limited edition! It's the perfect neutral taupe-gray and it's a beautiful for my blue eyes and NW15 skin. It doesn't have any warm tones to make my eyes or eyelids look irritated, and the satiny sheen is really soft and glowy. It mixes well with just about any other colour, works well in the crease, and can even work as a light smoky eye when applied all over the lid, in the crease, and as a liner on the lower lash line. I love it!

I recently bought the full-sized bottle after finishing off a sample spray. I really love this scent. On me it's a blend of honey, fresh flowers, and vanilla. I receive lots of compliments on it, and I appreciate its great staying power. It's sweet but not cloying, and not overly vanilla-y.
This is magic in a bottle. I occasionally get hormone-related cystic spots on my otherwise clear skin (the painful, huge, under-the-skin kind). I dab a thin layer of this over the spot before going to bed, and after two nights of treatment the cyst subsides and NEVER surfaces! Amazing. I never thought I'd find a topical product to treat this type of breakout. The price is fairly high but the bottle lasts forever if you are only spot-treating.

I love everything about this palette! All of the colours work beautifully with my cool-toned PPP skin and blue eyes. The shadows are smooth and long-lasting, and all of them are perfectly wearable and blendable. The lip creams feel SO soft, and they are the most flattering nude shades. I've never had a palette before this one that had no "useless" colours in it! Plus, the packaging is so cute. A definite must-buy.
Moisturizers -Elizabeth Arden - Perpetual Moisture 24 creme

This is the only product I've ever used that has caused an allergic reaction, and this one was BIG. My entire face was red, extremely swollen, itchy, and rough. It lasted for about three days. Obviously I'm allergic to one or more of the ingredients. It felt pleasant going onto my skin in the evening but by morning I was definitely no longer a fan of this cream!!
Top/Base Coats -Sally Hansen - Hard as Wraps - Acrylic Gel

Awful. This sat on top of my nails like a bubble-filled layer of plastic, and very neatly peeled off in the shower after less than 24 hours. It went straight into the garbage because I wouldn't wish this on anyone else!
Lip Gloss -Estee Lauder - Plastique Pink Pure Color Lip Vinyl

I love this gloss! The colour is exactly the colour of a fresh ruby red grapefruit. It goes on almost opaque, and it has a soft shine to it but not the full-on wet look of a typical gloss. This is so flattering with my cool-toned PPP complexion and it lasts a long time. The best part is that after it eventually wears off, my lips are left with the prettiest light pink stain. I usually just apply this with my finger for a less precise look. Wonderful!
To me, this looks like a pale champagne with a yellowy-peach undertone. I love it as a wash - it's smooth and shimmery and has a soft texture. I use this as a highlighter as well. (Cool-toned PPP with blue eyes.)
This taupey-brown is the perfect sheer powder for my light ashy-brown brows! I'm sorry it was discontinued. It's also a nice neutral, matte brown for lining eyes or adding depth to the crease.
Eye Shadow -Milani - Milani Eye Shadow Peachy Peach

I love this pale, shimmery pinky-peach shadow! Dry, it's lovely as a shimmery wash; wet, it's more peach and really beautiful. A versatile colour, and very flattering on my PPP, NW15 skin & blue eyes. The texture is nice and soft.
This is a beautiful pale gold/beigey shimmer that's beautiful as a wash or a highlighter. I also like applying a line of this wet under my lower lash line. The texture is quite soft so you don't have to fight to get your brush to pick it up. Highly recommended! (I love that it fits in my MAC 15 pan palette, too.)
I love this scent - it's warm and soft with a touch of sweetness, but it still smells fresh. I just want to smell it all day, but the problem is that I can't: this really doesn't have much staying power at all.
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Cool Effect Cream Shadow in Chill the Champagne
AmyMacMillan 2/7/2006 10:53:00 PM
I wish these shadows hadn't been discontinued! Chill the Champagne never creases and it lasts all day. It's a gorgeous, shimmery bronzey-champagne that applies smoothly and is great as a base or on its own. The colour really brings out the blue in my eyes.
This is a wonderful eyeshadow base. It easily covers the light purple tones on my lids, and smoothes and preps them perfectly for shadow. My shadow lasts ALL day and evening without creasing - amazing!!
