I love this Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick in Peachy Sheen number 830. The texture is really nice and smooth so it glides on your lips very easily. It is very moisturizing and leaves a nice glistening sheen on your lips. It also protects your lips with spf 15. It is a very nice warm sheen peachy color with tiny specks of silver sparkles. If you look really closely Revlon also has an expiration date stamped on the side of the lipstick. It is in black so it blends into the package. I love this because a lot of companies don't put a specific expiration date on their makeup. This makes it really convenient and safe for the customers to know when they should dispose of their makeup.
Pressed Powders -Everyday Minerals - Golden Medium
Candiez 12/11/2009 4:22:00 PM
I recently purchased this product from Everyday Minerals. I bought the new version of their pressed powder encased in their clean, super cute, white plastic case. Thankfully, I didn't have any adverse reaction to this. The powder is very pigmented so you don't need to use a lot of the product. Personally, I like to use my EM long handle Kabuki to apply this foundation. The staying power is excellent, but I do use a primer before applying this. Overall I love the powder and the case. The only thing I didn't find useful was the sponge that came along with it. I think the sponge is there to protect the product from breakage during transport. I was pleasantly surprised.

The Eye Kabuki Brush from Everyday Minerals is amazing. The bristles are very soft, so it doesn't prick your skin like some brushes do. It is a very full brush and picks up powder very well. I use this to apply my EM concealer, highlighter, and all over eyeshadow. It is a very versatile brush. I highly recommend this brush, I love it. I have repurchased these and the quality is excellent. The only difference I have seen it that the handle is a little bit thinner then the older versions, but that doesn't detract from the excellent quality of the brush itself.

I love this brush. It is very well made. It is very sturdy with a pretty bamboo handle. The brush is dense and super soft and the hair hasn't shed on me yet. I use this to lightly apply my finishing powder on days where I don't want to wear heavy makeup. I definitely recommend this brush. I have repurchased these as backups, and the quality is very consistent.
Everyday Minerals is a great company, I love the fact that they are a small business, owned, created, and run by a woman. Yeah, kudos to that. I love their foundation, blushes, pressed powders, and most of their brushes. I wanted to love the lip glosses. I bought Siesta, I warm peach color. It looks great in the tube, but I wished it was more pigmented. It does moisturize my lips at first, but it gets a little dry afterward. I find the texture to be good, I didn't find this grainy as mentioned by other reviewers. I only got one, so maybe I will give another color a try. The packaging is cute, but the gloss doesn't go all the way down in the tube, which means you can easily nick it. So you have to put the cap on carefully.

I love the Revlon's Matte Lipstick line! They are great. The lipsticks are really pigmented and the texture is really creamy and smooth. I moisturize my lips before applying this on and it is not drying at all. My favorite colors are Mauve it Over, Pink Pout, and Pink About It. I definitely recommend these and would purchase them again, especially during BOGO sales.

These are really great brushes. They are really soft and the handle is made of really solid and sturdy bamboo. There was no shedding. This is such a great buy, I got mine at Walgreens. Don't forget to check inside, there usually is a coupon for 50 cents. My favorite out of the bunch of this set is the Kabuki, it is so super soft.
Makeup Brushes -Sonia Kashuk - Large crease brush- white handle
Candiez 5/10/2009 2:21:00 AM
This is a soft brush, but it sheds . I use it to blend my eyeshadow, but it just sheds . The shape of the brush is poor, it doesn't tapper enough and loses it's shape and puffs up too much after little usage. I rarely reach for this. It also has a very strong chemical smell when I first purchased it. It took a couple of washes and 2 weeks for the smell to go away. I wouldn't purchase this again.
Makeup Brushes -Sonia Kashuk - Bent Eyeliner Brush
Candiez 5/10/2009 2:14:00 AM
Wow! Brushes does make a difference. I used to use a small eye angle brush to apply my gel eyeliner, and it was so much harder to control. The Sonia Kashuk bent eyeliner brush is awesome! It gives me so much more control of how much product I use and the thickness of creating my eyeliner. I love this brush for my gel liner.
I love the quilted design on the blush itself. This is a burgundy, wine color with a little shimmer. You get a Net Weight of 12 grams of product. This is very pigmented, that last. This is a great quality blush. It blends really well onto my skin and looks very flushed.
This is one of Revlon's limited edition blush. It is such a nice light pink blush, it gives me a natural flush look. The packaging is adorable, with hearts embossed on the blush product itself. A little goes a long way and it lasts for a long time. You get a Net Weight of 10 grams of product. I Love it so much, I got an extra one for my sister. :0)

This a great lipstick! Before I apply this on, I put on a lip balm to moisturize my lips. I have no problems with this being too dry. It is quite creamy and has a really nice texture and gives a full coverage. I love this color, it is a bright peachy, pink. The Revlon matte lipstick collection has really good pigmentation. I would definitely purchase this again.

This product is great. It has so many usages to it, but I use it for my chapped lips. It glides on smoothly and makes my lips nice and soft. I love the fact that this product has no petroleum.
