I love this perfume! It smells clean and fresh. It makes a statement without being overpowering or overbearing. It is light and crisp. LOVE!!
Powder -Make Up For Ever - Duo Mat Powder foundation

This is a great product. I have EXTREMELY oily skin. I use this over all liquid foundations as a setting powder. The finish gives a natural matte finish. If you have oily skin, this is a great product for you.
Liquid -Make Up For Ever - Mat Velvet PLUS Matifying Foundation
Lovey99 10/3/2010 8:38:00 PM
This is a GREAT product. I have extremely oily skin, and this products keeps the oilies at bay. Of course, nothing will keep your skin perfectly matte if you have VERY oily skin. This foundation is silky and smooth. It gives you a wonderful satin finish.
This product did not work for me at all. I have oily skin, and the product made me look WET--not dewy but wet. You must shake the product up well, because it separates. There is no pump, so a lot of product can be wasted. The silicone based foundation is not recommended for those with oily skin.
Lipstick -Make Up For Ever - Rouge Artiste Intense 14

This is a beautiful color. The shimmer and glitter is finely milled, therefore, cannot be felt. The color is intense and long-lasting.
Blush -MAC - Blush Ombre - Ripe Peach [DISCONTINUED]

I have a dark complexion (NW 45/NW47), and this blush offers a nice peachy hue. I layer this over Joie De Vivre or Optimistic Orange Cremeblend Blush. Layering brings out the true tone over my deep complexion. I think this color will definitely be a staple for the upcoming spring and summer seasons.
This is great for all dark complexions. I am NW45/NW47 and this is a lovely color. The purple is distinct. The darker side can be used for a contour. I prefer blushes with shimmer, so this is perfect for me.
Eye Shadow -MAC - Mineralize eyeshadow in Lovestone
Lovey99 10/11/2009 12:13:00 AM
I just received this product in a swap. I absolutely love it. I mean love it. The glitter is finely milled with little fallout. I do not like a lot of glitter, I am a professional woman and I find it inappropriate. Lovestone is the absolutely most perfect reddish cranberry color.
I love this product. It is not a quick fix product. Over time, it works well. I had hyperpigmentation over quite a few areas on my face. I also had an allergic reaction to a spider bit on my lower cheek that left a nasty blackish scar. This serum has worked wonders. Like I said, it is not a quick fix but over time results will be seen. I like the natural ingredients. The product goes on smoothly and absorbs quickly.
Cleansers -Dermalogica - Dermal Clay Facial Cleanser
Lovey99 10/11/2009 12:09:00 AM
This is my HG daily cleanser. I use this to wash my face twice a day. I have found that my extremely oily face has decreased pore size. My complexion is more clear. I love the tingly feeling it gives at times, when I have a breakout. The price is a little steep, but it is worth every single penny.
This is HG foundation for me. I have a dark complexion, with brownish red undertones. Nars Sheer Matte foundation in Tortuga matches perfectly. For reference, I am MAC NW 45/47, MUFE 180/85. The foundation melts into your skin. Your skin is even and gives a natural finish. I have extremely oily and extremely sensitive skin. I cannot wear MAC foundations as they break me out. I do not have any adverse reactions to this foundation; I have been wearing it for 3 weeks now. It feels lightweight. It is not completely transfer resistant, but better than most. I still use an oil control primer (Givenchy Mister Mat) underneath the foundation. It keeps a nice finish for some time, I still do blot oil throughout the day (but I am extremely oily). One drawback is the packaging. It does not come with a pump, and a pump cannot be purchased. I am not fond of pouring out the liquid, too many mistakes can happen and I find that I use more than is necessary. I highly recommend this product to oily girls and WOC. There is a very broad range of colors/undertones.
Masks -DDF - Sulfur Therapeutic Mask [DISCONTINUED]
Lovey99 5/1/2009 1:14:00 AM
I have extremely oily skin, large clogged pores, and am acne-prone. After seeking assistance from a dermatologist, I did not get the results I was looking for. I tried all types of products for over a year (high-end and less expensive). I did not have acne as a teen, but have experienced acne for the last 2-3 years (since I was around 25). I tried this, and it is HG for me. After the first use, I noticed pores that were smaller because they were not clogged. I used it as a spot treatment and eliminated all pimples and bumps within a few days. This is great from those with sensitive skin, as a lot of things that treat breakouts end up breaking me out. This solved all my issues and is great. It is a little pricey, but well worth every cent.
Lotions/ Creams -Sephora - SuperStars - Super Supreme Body Butter

I was reluctant the first tim eI bought this. $25 for lotion is quite steep. After the first use, I was hooked. My overly dry skin look vibrant and refreshed. This is a staple!
Pressed Powders -Prescriptives - Virtual Matte Oil-Control Pressed Powder
Lovey99 3/6/2009 12:13:00 AM
I have been using this product for several years. Recently, I have tried MAC Blot powder, MUFE powder, and a few others. Nothing compares to the coverage, feel, and overal quality. I just repurchased another compact and have gotten rid of the others.
I really like this primer. Does not work very well with all shadows on dark skin.
