So, I recently did a review on Sugarpills Royal Sugar and I wasn't too please. I ordered a total of three Chromalust from Sugarpill and I wore Hysteric today and I have to say I am very pleased with the color, wear and ease of application. I have tons of Mineral eyeshadow samples from companies like Fyrinnae, The She Space, Heavenly Naturals and Sugarpill Hysteria was by far the easiet loose eyeshadow to apply. I don't consider Sugarpills Chromalust Mineral makeup but more of a pigment because they are forumulated to adhere to the lid just like MAC's pigments. I don't know whay Royal Sugar Chromalust was a pain for me to apply but it could have been the Matte finish with sparkles. Hysteria is pure sparkle and gorgeous. What I love about her chromalust is when she says there is turquoise sparkles in the purple base of Hysteric, you could actually see the turquoise sparkles unlike some companies where I have to look harder and the affect actually transfered to my lid. Applying this loose eyeshadow was a breeze, because I use Makeupgeek's way of applying loose eyeshadow, which is pressing the brush into the loose eyeshadow then patting on. I had zero fall out with Hysteric, I'm mean zero, nada. I have never had this happen with a loose eyeshadow before, I was looking hard for fallout and I found none. I am very please with this color and product, I can't wait to order more.
I recieved my order of three sugarpill chromalust. I will review the other two once I get a chance to test them out. I wore Royal Sugar today and I loved my look. I put Royal Sugar on my lid and UD shroom in my crease. I was dissapointed on the lasting power of Royal Sugar, which started to fade and crease about three hours after application. I used UD eden as a primer and NYX base in a jar( the concealer one). First Royal Sugar is somewhat of a pain to apply. I felt as I was applying the color would gather in one area more than the other creating a patchy look. I had to pat and pat in order to achieve a uniform color on my lid. I won't complain about fallout because most loose eyeshadows fall out during application. Overall I think the color is very unique and with a good hand there are many cool looks that can be accomplished with this color. Lasting power is not good, so for a night out to dinner yeah but for an all day color no. I do love the concept of Sugarpill and I have yet to try her pressed eyeshadows but I do plan on making another order, however I don't think I would buy this particular color again.

Top/Base Coats -Poshe - Super-Fast Drying Top Coat
Iris25 2/28/2010 9:27:00 PM
The first time I used this product it was really good. Then I tried to use it again on a second manicure and the top coat was goopy. I didn't leave it open to air on my first manicure because I know it's a fast drying top coat. When I tried to apply it over the China Glaze nail polish it was super thick and it took some of my polish with it and deposited it on the tip of my nail. So I had this thin coat of polish on the lower part of my nail and a thick coat on the tip of my nail. It made my manicure hideous. I tried it a third time with an OPI nail polish and the results were the same. I will not buy this again, so now I have this bottle that I can't use, because I don't feel like doing more than one manicure in a day until it comes out right.
Lipstick -Bobbi Brown - Metallic Lipstick - Beige Gold

I love this color. This was my first bobbi brown lip purchase and since then I have gotten baby peach and silver haze. I'm usually a lipgloss gal but these lipstick are so moisturizing they feel like lipgloss or more like lotion for the lips. The colors are perfect not too intense which I like, more like a medium sheer. I love bobbi brown's concept of makeup, I am a bobbi brown addict.
I have to say that these eyeshadows are of good quality. I just started getting into eyeshadows and in a months time I have used MAC, Bobbi Brown, Shu Uemura, Lacome etc and these shadows are just as good as these higher end brands. I was hesitant at first to try them because I read they didn't last, but I wore Ulta's pink and it lasted all day in the summer heat and I have very oily lids. I did use UDPP with it. I even got a compliment at the MAC counter when I wore it. I just bought six more today:)
This bodywash smells so yummy! I don't care for the scrubbing particles but they aren't harsh on the skin. I do have to say if you have dry skin or are suffering from a dry skin condition this is not the product for you. While it is a good shower gel it left my skin alittle dry, because my skin is recovering from months of using Dove bar soap which has destroyed my once supple skin. Once my skin gets back to normal I would use again, as I think this would work fine for normal skin. This is better suited for the summer. For a more moisturing caress gel go with the evenly gorgeous brown sugar gel, this is to die for.
I'm currently deployed and I ordered this soap because I needed a shower gel that smelled good and moisturized my body. This is perfect! The smell is to die for and my skin feels soft, however I still need to use lotion but that's the case with any bodywash I use. This is an excellent quality shower gel for the price. I've used shower gels by Jo Malone and Molton Brown and they pale in comparison to this shower gel, and this cost alot less. It feels so relaxing to shower with this, I hightly recommend!
OMG! I love this body cream, it leaves my skin unlike anything I have tried. I really believe it has changed my skin in the two weeks that I have been using it. It completely absorbs into my skin and leaves me hydrated for hours. I've tried other creams that leave me hydrated but with a waxy suffocating film. With this my skin can breath and also feel smooth and soft. I do this scratch test on my leg when I come home from work and I get no ash when I use this cream. Vaseline total moisture failed my scratch test. I will continue to buy creme de corps.
Treatments -Philosophy - The Microdelivery Peel Pads

I love the microdelivery peel but these pads sucks. They are so flimsy and thin and hard to seperate. It didn't do anything for my skin either. I would not repurchase. Go get the Microdelivery peel set instead it's much better.
Cleansers -Philosophy - Purity Made Simple (Real Purity Cleanser)

This cleanser made my face break out. It is gentle but I couldn't stand the breakouts so I stopped using it.
Cleansers -Cellex-C - Betaplex Gentle Foaming Cleanser
Iris25 12/10/2006 2:34:00 AM
This stuff was garbage to me. It doesn't feel like it cleans my face and I got the most horrible breakouts from this cleanser. I certainly stopped using it and my breakout cleared but not totally because the whole reason I bought this cleanser was for my breakouts. I wouldn't buy this again never!
I was very excited when I got a sample of this product but the excitement was short lived when I saw the results. My Bodyshop butter moisturize better than this cream. This cream keeped my legs moisturized for about 3 hours and then my legs were dry again. Not worth the price! Save your money.
I really like this pomade because it doesn't build up on my hair. It's light and has enough hold for my flyaways and it's easy to wash out unlike other pomades I have used that just won't wash out of my hair making it look greasy. I would buy this again.
Styling Products -Frederic Fekkai - Finishing Polish

This serum is very light. I prefer using heavier serums on my wet hair because my hair is so thick. This serum doesn't work well when I use it on wet hair but It works wonderful when I use it on my hair after I flat iron. It doesn't make my hair look overly greasy and flat. So I reserve my heavier serums for curly days and use this serum when I flat iron. I wouldn't dare use a heavier serum on my flat ironed hair because it will weigh it down but this is perfect.
