I actually give this gloss 3.5 because like mostly all reviewers have said it's wayyyyyy glittery, but it being glittery is one thing but that the glitter stays on your lips for years is another, I really dont like the fact that I have to scrape them off my lips, if I really want them to come off. I just wish they were smaller or something. The color is nice, not too bright or anything, I only wear it over my most favorite lipstick, Speed dial, I lovelovelove that lipstick!!! They really do look great together!
I just bought this several days ago, and I really do like it, I first saw this on my sister-in-law, she was wearing it with mahogany lip liner and I asked her which one it was and I bought exactly what she bought. It takes a while for me to get used to such a red color, but if you think of it, its not actually bright red its more like brick red, the matteness of it makes it look very classic and toned down, I love it, I wore it today to the office for the first time, and I feel pretty good about it! I will continue wearing it!
I have had this straightner for a little more than a year, I use it every single day and its just great!!! I love how is heats up in seconds and if I happen to leave it on it will turn off on its own, I really love this product, I bought it at sephora, and used a 20% discount which was great cus it is very expensive!, I think if it ever stops working I will buy another for sure, but in a different color if they have any at the time, because black is so plain, but very classic, but I would want a pink one or white, but anyways. This straightener is the best I have ever owned and I wont change it :)
I love this product it is great, my hair is fairly long and I straighten it everyday and its very weightless and soft when I use this prior to blow drying, I dont like the price, but I love the product more than I hate the price so I will definitely continue using this.
Blush -MAC - Mineralize Blush Duo - Intenso (Grand Duos Coll.)

This is by far my most favorite blush ever! I really like it alot! I have hit pan on one of them already, and thank goodness I went to vegas and was able to get another, I love the color, its really great!
I am reviewing on a sample I received when I went to the Estee Lauder counter, I asked for a sample before buying the whole thing because I wouldnt want to waste the whole bottle on me just trying it and not liking it and having to return it. I am an NC40/42 and I was matched with shell beige, for the most part I like the shade, I just wish it were a little more yellow toned, but its fine the way it is, I am just being picky because MAC is more yellow ish than Estee Lauder in my opinion. I really like the fact that this really does wear for a long long time, I honestly can say I have found my hg because I dont have to touch up at all if I dont want to, I just lightly dab a little bit of powder throughout the day if I'm feeling oily. I am def. going to buy the whole bottle and hopefully it continues to work as well as it has. Also a little tid bit a great way to apply it is with the beauty blender! and they samples they give at estee lauder are a great amount! :-)
I dont know why alot of people dont like this product, I really like it, I have oily skin and I use it to set my foundation, sometimes if I want a dewey look I will put on a lot of this and then apply a cream foundation, but for the most part, I use this to set my face once im finished, I use like 3-4 pumps, and I dont see my makeup moving all over the place it literally "sets". I sometimes will use it as a mixing medium for my eyeshadow, but for the most part for setting my face.
This is a really beautiful pink, like others have said it does have somewhat of a purple ish pink to it, which is nice, it does have long staying power, and its pretty shiny, I like it, and will repurchase, if I ever finish, which I never do finish a polish haha
I got this as a B2M product so I cant really say about the price you know, but as for the product I can say it is a great color if you like that bright lip look, I myself do! I can wear both neutral and bright lip colors, or atleast I think I do, since I love both looks, I like this color because it really makes my lips look like "juicy" if you will, and like fuller. Its nice and creamy which is nice too. I think I might purchase if I ever finish it.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! this color, its just so rosy-mauvey on my skintone and the formula is also great as well, except that if I have it on for too long then it will kind of make my lips a little dry ish which is weird, but I dont mind I just put on on vapor run at night and sleep with it on, and in the morning my lips are nice and fluffy haha!
I have had this blush for quite a while now, but I just began using it again because, the other day I happened to see come upon it in my makeup stash, I really like it, the reason I gave it 4 lippies is because it kind of doesnt last too long on my cheekies, but I can always re-apply but other than that its great!! I think the color looks great on my NC40-NC42/C4 skintone :) I will respurchase again if I ever finish.....I think haha!
Bronzers -Chanel - Irreelle Soleil - Silky Bronzing Powder
Maxipoodle 3/24/2010 4:42:00 PM
This is my most favorite bronzer ever! not only is the color great but the packaging is great as well, it is really big and I just love it.
This review if for the new blushes Estee Lauder launched, as part of the Michael Kors "Very Hollywood" collection, this is for the pink one, I bought it thinking it would add a nice pinky-ness to my cheeks, but it didn't instead it made them appear kind of red, which I dont understand, I know I'm not applying too much of it because I barely swipe my brush along the top of the powder, I was very excited to get this blush, but I will def. return it! :-(
The powder itself, I guess is ok, but the color was not good for my skintone at all, maybe I was given the wrong color, but if I would have gone lighter I think it would look ashy, because the one I have made my skin look bronzey, like I had gotten a matte bronzer and brushed it all over my skin, I will have to return this because its no good for my coloring.
This is my favorite lipstick my MAC, I wear it all the time, yes it might be a lil out there since its a bright pink, but I think I wear it well, I usually wear a gloss over it, and it looks great! It stays on a long time, and its just great! I am medium dark, but I love bright lipsticks and this one is my favorite to wear, now if I could only find a perfect bright peachy/coral for my lips! ;-)
