Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - Color Icon Single in Brulee
LilShortie 4/12/2011 3:43:00 PM
Holy mama, this is a buttery eyeshadow! I doesn't get stuck on dry skin, and stays put all day (I use TFSI primer). I reach for this more than MAC shadows. Great neutral. I have other WNW colors that are hard to open (this particular one is easy), I use the tweezers. I insert the handle end of the tweezers into the slit where it opens and twist lightly.
I used this for a long time, don't remember how long, but over a year. I thought it was OK. Less annoying than other types of nail files. This one was my file, but I may toss it now...I've discovered the Sephora brand glass file, that one files my nails a lot smoother and they are no longer peeling and as I just mentioned - nail edges are much smoother now.

I have the mango tango. I think these were $7 ea or 2 for $12 when I got mine. This particular one has little color payoff IMO, which is what I wanted. Not the most moisturizing, but not bad either. I bought it for the color, which is kind of translucent peachy. Not sticky at all, color lasted about 2 hrs. Has a sweet flavor, not sure what it tastes like, not mango imo (as the name may imply). You have to be careful when it's new when you open it, because some of it sticks out from the tube - you can't twist it all the way in when new, so it's easy to nick it with a cap if you're not careful opening it. I suppose that's not a long term problem, so who cares. I'm not a fan of lipgloss or lipstick, I prefer tinted balms, this is perfect for me. Best way to know if these are for you is to just try them yourself at the store. I am NW15/20, brown eyes/hair.
i got 2 of these brushes for $2 each. i have been using them to stipple my mufe f&b on. i actually prefer this brush to my SK (that one was prickly and too floppy for foundation stippling, tho i still love it for other purposes). this brush doesnt shed or bleed for me, i wash it daily.
Powder -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish Duo in Light Medium Natural / Shimmer

Got this at CCO. Was my 1st MSF (perfect topping in my 2nd). I use the natural part all over my face, and with 187 brush I lightly swirl the shimmer part, shake the brush and touch my hand with it 1st, then just highlight with it. Used this way, it makes my skin look nicer than Perfect Topping (which I like too, but not as much). Just for ref. I am NW15, brown hair and eyes.
This eyeshadow is sooo nice, I have 3 to make sure I don't run out. As others have described, it's a lovely deep, finely milled with some bronzey looking shimmer, but you can't see the shimmer on your eye at all, and on the shadow itself, it's barely there. The shadow applies nicely. I use it on top of black liner to soften it, and it's easy to make it look smokey, or just blend the edges to make them looks softer. No creasing, works well w/UDPP for me too. It's my HG. I am NW15, but I imagine this would look great on just about anyone. Try it, it's cheap!
Woah! Where has this been all my life??!! I bought the shade "0" This is shimmer free!!!! This shade is just perfect for my NW15 skin. Makes you look like you have a kiss of sun. To me a regular bronzer is like using a regular self tanner. This Mat Bronze in "0" (zero) is like using a gradual tanner, just a touch of color. Stays on all day, even looks good without foundation. I was going to buy Nars Laguna, but the SA at Sephora asked to show me more options. After she showed me this one, I almost fell over. I have never seen a bronzer this shade. Bronzers usually make me look dirty. Worth a look is you are looking for a subtle color, no shimmer and are on a lighter side. There are darker shades too, but I didn't try them :-)
Cheap awesomeness! I sprained my shoulder and tried this. Holy cow, good for aches AND i felt soooo gooood after coming out. SO relaxing! Will use the salts weekly from here on.

gah, sorry to ruin the good reviews... I have been using Tretinoin for 2 years and have just quit. My under eye lines got worse and lines on sides of my face appeared. I was hoping it would go away, but it didn't and got worse. After stopping, my skin is looking a bit better, more even and I put Vaseline on my lines as well, hoping to plump up the skin. I am pretty sad over the turn out. I'm 30 and I feel I look older now :-( Glad it works for most at least... EDIT: I now use it once a week, and my skin is back to normal, and this seems to work well, perhaps my skin just doesn't tolerate it very well. But once a week works. I'l up the rating one lippy.

I don't sweat much, BUT i can smell myself if I wear a sleeveless shirt or in the summer. It's not summer yet, I will hopefully review it again then. but for now it works better than anything that I've tried.

cheap heaven. most moisturizing product I have used thus far. Others have described it well, not sure what else to add. Buy it and try it! i am glad it has no sunscreen, i don't want to eat those chemicals :)
As previously mentioned gorgeous light pink color with silver glitter that melts into your lips. Usually pink doesn't look good on me but this is very wearable. Feels more like gloss on.

This is The BEST shaving gel i ever used, i used to use Aveeno till I decided to try this.
one if my new fave shades. A lot of l/s and l/g turn orange on me, so i was happy to find that this one looks great on my lips. i used to dislike the scent when i first started buying Rimmel glosses, but now i really smell nothing LOL, i think i'm immune. Also, i love the way this gloss feels, hardly sticky or thick, very nice.
