Foundations -Prescriptives - Virtually Fresh-All [DISCONTINUED]
MkChic 5/12/2007 5:54:00 PM
This is an awesome foundation. Because it's Prescriptives, it has great color selection; I'm an nc25-30 and wear vellum. It has a velveety texture (from silicones) and minimizes my large pores. It's been a couple hours and it is still on my super oily t-zone. It feels light, yet has suprising amount of coverage. So far so good (I just got this yesterday)!
This is my hg blush. I'm an nc25-30, and blushes usually make me too flushed, or unaturally so. This gives a nice tan-rose blush that looks super natural. Of course, the quality is great (mac blushes are great). This is the perfect everyday blush that gives my face a bit more oomph!
Bronzers -L'Oreal - HIP Vibrant Shimmer Bronzing Powder Blessed

Love! I've tried some bronzers in the past, but they make me look too orange, but this is absolutely fab. It's truly a medium brown with gorgeous shimmer (that is not noticeable). I thought bronzers wouldn't work for my nc25-30 skin, but this disproves that claim! It works really well with my mac prism blush (my hg blush) and the quality is comparable to it. The brush that comes with it is suprisingly soft, although it is a bit small. I really recommend this bronzer!
This is my first mac foundation, and i liked it a lot at first when the SA put it on me with the 188 brush. Well, i felt sort of heavy, which i don't like, but i'm not really used to the full-faced makeup thing anyways :). However, it's great for places that need extra coverage (large pores on my nose), but maybe not enough for pimples. it has great staying power. i got nc30 and it's a tad to dark but the SA (and I) thought the nc25 was too light, so i won't be buying this again. (btw, the 188 didn't seem to blend it too well when i tried it at home because the consistency is so thick and the 188 seems too "soft") hth someone!
I really like this product. I got medium brown in the cream fromula and colored my almost black hair to cover white. It covers all and leaves my hair super shiny and silky. The color is a rich chocolate brown, the color I've been looking for. It's better than nutrisse, preference, clairol, anything i've ever tried. it's at sally's for really cheap and is better than the salon stuff imo. hth!
i've been looking for the perfect pink e/s that won't make me look like i rubbed my eyes. This is a medium pink, sort of mauve-ish. It's so pretty! Love the texture and staying power of stila eyeshadows!
I love the packaging! I've been wanting this because it's so cute. it smells very girly and pretty. it would be a nice everyday sort of perfume. it's not my favorite, but it smells pretty good

my mom got this for me because of the attractive bottle (very chic IMO) and it smells great. it is very expensive tho, and i don't think it is worth the price. i wouldn't but it, but it is a nice pleasure to have.
I never wore eyeliner before but kept wanting to try this because of its popularity. this stuff is great. i have the bobbi brown eyeliner brush too and they work fabulously together. it looks natural and applies quickly. it doesn't hurt during the application as many pencil eyeliners do and lasts the whole day.
Liquid -Prescriptives - Flawless Skin Total Protection Makeup SPF 15

Wow, great foundation. I have super oily skin, especially in the summer, and this lasts all day, which rarely happens. It has spf, nice coverage (med-full), and a great shade range. the biggest problem for me is the price because i think you can find a decent foundation for way cheaper. but this is nicer than them but not 4 times as nice. this gives me flawless skin, no concealer needed
Wow! This really is a deeep treatment! This is the most moisturizing conditioner my damaged hair has ever use. Definetly recommend to those who have extremely damaged/dry hair. fantastic at a really cheap price.
Polishes -Revlon - Colorstay Always On Nail Enamel - Absolute Bliss Ultra Sheer
MkChic 5/24/2005 10:04:00 PM
Wow! My nails have never looked this great. I bought this because the other reviewers said this looks like Essie's mademoiselle. It's such a beautiful, natural-looking color. I was skeptical that it would be the color I was looking for because it looks like it would be a brighter (not hot pink but a brighter, light, milky pink) pink than it is. I agree it is a very light milkish pink. I'm so suprised it didn't streak as other nailpolishes at the drugstore(i've tried 3 that were this color) did. I put on two coats and it's absolutely gorgeous! so shiny
I hate the smell of this. I agree with the other reviewer. This makes my hair super soft, but it doesn't flatten out my hair (which as bad for me because i have really thick hair). most conditioners, even really intense ones, don't make my hair as soft. Cheap and good for dry hair that's normal in thickness (too much for thin hair).
This one works great. It's not as super as my shiseido one (which someone stole!), but it works good enough for me. Personally, i don't think it has as much comfort as Shiseido's, but the price makes up for it. It curls just as well as the shiseido, just not with the added comfort. It gets the job done.

I use this brush to fill my sparse brows (with powder). It's soft,and firm enough to have control. Great brush
