Liquid -Chanel - Mat Lumiere Long Lasting Luminous Matte Fluid Makeup SPF 15
Crump360 10/21/2010 12:54:00 PM
Supposed to last for 12 hours. Medium coverage. Walnut I have been wanting to try this because of all the reviews that I have heard about Chanel foundation and because I find that I get very oily in my T-zone. I really like this foundation, it lasts for the most part of the day, and it is lightweight. I really gives a flawless finish that is obviously matte and when I use the serum underneath I stay matte throughout the day as well. I must admit that I a impressed with this foundation. My only grip is that the color match is not perfect, but un-noticeable. I send this with powder and get flawless looking skin.
Blush -Korres - Zea Mayes Powder Blush-47 Orange Brown

I have heard all types of good things about Korres blush and because I am quite a fanatic of blush, I was curious. The packaging is very modern, simple and durable. The color called orange brown didn't look anything like orange brown to me when I actually opened the compact. It is more of a brownish-coral color and you can tell there is a hit of shimmer. The pigmentation is not as strong as a NARS blush but the color is beautiful and with a couple of swipes (of a fluffy, blush brush) you get the color payoff you are looking for. I am quite pleased with this blush an hope to purchase other colors.
Tokaido Express i s a dark plum color with gold shimmer. This shimmer is very fine and gives the finish of the polish an almost metallic finish. It is a very sophisticated color and I found it much more flattering than darker and maybe more popular purple colors because instead of a purple it is more of a plum. The lasting power of the polish is decent but not inpecible and the application is nice and smooth. It looks equally nice on my hands and toes. This is probably one my favorite colors in my collection.
This is a pro product that was introduced by MAC in the Pret-a-Papier collection. Although this is a good match for my skintone (I am NW35, so the pencil is a little bit lighter), I mainly use it to line my waterline or cover spots. This is nothing to run home to mom about but a useful product. I just wish i used it more often.
This is a limited edition prodcut from MAC's Pret-a-papier collection. I practically wore this lip glass everyday this summer. It is a semi-opaque preachy-coral with a subtle gold shimmer. This is a color that will flatter many skintones and is easy to wear. LOVE IT.
This is a limited edition product from MAC's Pret-a-papier collection. Made to Order is a lustre lipstick that is a deep peachy-coral color. It is increadibly flattering on my tan skin. I like that the coverage is sheer and allows me to build up the color or keep it sheer.
This is a limited edition prodcut from MAC's Pret-a-papier collection. Brown bag is a great nude color on my NW35 skintone. Last for a long time, and I only need two coats for a creamy finish. LOVE IT.
This is a limited edition product from MAC's To the Beach collection. I found firecracker to be one of the most interesting eye shadows from this collection but it was a sad disappointment. The color in the pan did not translate to my tan skin. It was a lot less pigmented and sheer and looked way more pink. This does look nice over coral crepe, but otherwise, I am sure there are more successful coral-red colors than this one.
This is a limited edition product from MAC's To the Beach collection. I almost slept on this blush. In fact, after buying it, I didn't use it until about a month later. I was a little bit more tan and I started using this as a cheek color + highlight. It is described as a rosy golden-tan and I thought that it would remind me of NARS Lovejoy blush, but it is a lot less rosy. None the less, this color is incredibly flattering on my tan skin. It definitely gives you a suitable glow. The pigmentation is lacking so you can use this blush pretty freely (no light hand needed) and it gives that "I'm not wearing blush" look. This definitely was an un-rated product.
This is a limited edition prodcut from MAC's To the Beach collection. This bronzer is a reddish - tan color is pink shimmers, is has a cream to powder finish and doesn't feel heavy or thick. It is buildable and suitable. Although a nice product, I prefer the NAR multiple bronzers for cream blushes.
Eye Shadow -MAC - Mineralize Eye Shadow-Blue My Mind
Crump360 9/23/2010 10:31:00 AM
This eyeshadow is a limited edition product from MAC's in the groove collection. I was dissappointed by these mineralized eyeshadows. The pigmentation was poor and chalky. The only color that worked well was the teal stripe in the middle but that color is easily dupeable. Many other companys make better mineralized eyeshadows (Lorac has some of my favorites).
This is a pretty purple-berry color with a slight shimmer. It is semi-opaque gloss that has beautiful pigmentation on my Tan skin and pigmented lips. My only complaint is (like all MAC lip glasses) that it is sticky.
This is a lipstick from MAC's Fabulous Feline's Collection. It is described as a frost, dark, burgundy wine color. I don't see the texture or finish of this lipstick consistent with frost lipsticks that MAC releases. Although dark in the tube, the lipstick is sheer and very wearable. Like other reviewers have mentioned, it leaves a nice berry stain on the lips. I think this color looks especially intense over a dark liner (current of velvetella). The only disappointment about this lipstick is that I think this is an easily dupable color.
Eyeliner -MAC - Smoky Heir Superslick Liquid Liner
Crump360 9/23/2010 10:12:00 AM
superslick eyeliners are quite nice. They have a felt tip making it easy to apply (especially for a cat eye) and provides a lot of control. Smoky Noir is true purple color with purple and pink shimmers. It shows up true to form purple on my tan skin and is very flattering to my brown eyes. It also had great lasting power. This liner will last all day but it might not look exactly as when first applied at the end of the day. I am still impressed with the lasting power and it is pretty easy to remover since is peels off the skin. The most unique thing about these liquid liners are the colors. My only complaint is that is takes a while for this liquid eyeliner to dry (45-60 second, maybe more). If you want a great felt tip liner, L'Oreal Paris Carbon Black Liquid Eyeliner also has a felt tip, great staying power and dries much faster.
Blush -MAC - Matte Blush - Bite Of An Apple (Venomous Villains)
Crump360 9/23/2010 10:05:00 AM
This blush is a limited edition item from MAC's Venomous Villains collection. I think this is one of the must haves from the collection. It is a very-pigmented, bright, matte, coral blush. This is work of any skin tone because of the pigmentation. The color reminded me of the Marine Highlight powder from MAC's To the Beach collection, but much more pigmented and much brighter.
