Wow! This color is phenomenal! I put Mac's beloved Satin Taupe next to it and it is pretty close. Satin Taupe has more of a copper sheen when next to Raisin. I used to use a lot of different shades before finding this go-to. I pair it with a lighter TME shadow and it's my go-to color!
Wow! I bought this because I love the pink packaging. It really makes a difference. I put it in the inner corners of my eye and hardly blend it really is an eye opener! I have put a dab in the cinter of my lower lip as a brightener and it is so pretty. Again I wouldn't really blend too much as the warm of your skin will do that in a couple hours. This really is a pretty color!
Treatments -Trish McEvoy - Even Skin Beta Hydroxy Pads

Yes, these pads at $60 for 40 ARE expensive, but completely worth it. I Use them soley for exfoliation purposes as I have extremely dry skin and grainy exfoliation makes it worse. I cut them in half or even in thirds at a time (they are very wet) and use them daily in the morning. At this rate it will last you 3 to 4 months. I do not have flakey skin after a couple times using them. I was skeptical, but do try if you have flakey skin like mine. I LOVE THEM! Of course I wait for my skin to dry after application and put on moisturizer!
Was a free liner. At first sight looked darker than I'd normally wear...but really is a creamy nuetral burgandy rose. Slightly darker than your natural lip color. I was using it on my entire lips and topping with a neutral pink like Mac Brave, but have been lately just using it as a lipcolor alone. Great product!!!
I agree with the former review from guccigrl. This shadow doesn't show very well! The color is pretty, just wish I could see it. Mac and Lancome shadow formulations are much better for me. Product way too expensive.
I completely disagree with the review before mine that Brave doesn't flatter fair-skinned blondes. I LOVE this color--probably my favorite!~ It is great pink with a slight nude undertone. I like the matte color. I either use Mac Dervish liner or YSL #6 underneath. Wonderful! The only complaint I have is the texture isn't creamy like the Spice Mac liner I once used.
This is a great product, although I wish the brushes the rep applied it with were included. I thought the creamier version would look pastey, but I love it under my eyes and inner corners of eyes topped lightly with the nuetral powder included. Doesn't look cakely and the powder is translusant and non-aging. ( I am normally not a powder person)
Foundations -Laura Mercier - moisturizing foundation in sunny beige

I've tried other expensive brand foundations and this is my favorite. I is great for my dry skin, but doesn't leave me looking oily. Tried to match this color with Lancome and Yves Saint Laurent, but there is none like it for me. Best to work it in in small areas--more pigmented than other foundations according to LM rep.
This is probably now my favorite mascara! It gives such great length to your lashes with just one swipe. You can keep layering it without looking goopy. It doesn't run. The Lancome representative said she felt just the regular Hypnose was superior to the Hynose Drama which gets flakey in her opinion. I love this mascara!
I bought this blush because it constantly gets rave reviews and was very disappointed. I love a soft pinkish/peach blush, but this was way too sparkley and so pigmented it left me looking clownish--even applying it light handedly. I read other reviews saying many swipes were needed to see color--I had the opposite experience--it had a very powdery/creamy texture.
