Bronzers -Physicians Formula - Baked Pyramid Matte Bronzer
PaleBrunette 5/10/2013 3:05:00 AM
I've had this product for quite some time now in Baked Tan. It's really very natural looking on my fair skin. Great for spring when I just want a little warmth. It's not really deep enough for contouring, but the matte texture is everything I look for in a bronzer.
This gloss is not very pigmented. In the tube it looks like a juicy grapefruit pink but on the lips its a very sheer glittery pink. It's pretty, but not what I was looking for.
I got this shadow as part of a set. It's a pale shimmery champagne cream shadow. I like to use it lash to brow with a winged liner and a bold lip. Great staying power over a primer. Look for it in one of Benefits great sets. I find them to be a great chance to sample products you might not otherwise try.
Eyeliner -Wet 'n' Wild - MegaLiner Liquid Eyeliner Dark Brown

When it comes to liquid liners, this brush is perfection. Nice dark brown that lasts all day. Save your $$$ and try this inexpensive HG liner.
I can get the thinnest, most perfect little winged cateye with this liner. The color is a vivid greeny turquoise. This color is so on-trend right now and the price is so low, do yourself a favor and pick this little beauty up.
Eye Shadow -L'Oreal - Colour Riche quad in Cupa Joe
PaleBrunette 4/27/2013 2:13:00 AM
Gorgeous neutral, matte quad with an off white highlight shade and three levels of brown. It's lacking in pigmentation but over a primer, I made it work. Would not repurchase because there are alternatives that have better pigmented quality. It's still a matte quad, so I will definitely get some wear out of it.
Liquid -L'Oreal - True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Makeup

Really happy with this dewy foundation on my maturing, normal skin. Easy to get a good color match. I chose C3 and it's seamless. It applies rather wet before it sets, so there is plenty of time for blending. I got a good 8 hours out of it on my normal skin. I did use concealer under eyes and found the coverage to be medium to light. If youdon't need heavy coverage and like a dewy finish, you'll be able to work with this one.
Blush -Maybelline - Dream Bouncy Blush in Rose Petal

I really love the texture of these bouncy blushes. This shade is a warm pale pink that really flatters my pale face. However, it's not really very pigmented and I think darker complexions would be disappointed.
Lip Gloss -Neutrogena - Moisture Shine gloss in Berry Fit
PaleBrunette 4/26/2013 4:44:00 PM
This is a nice, moisturizing lipgloss with a doe foot applicator. Medium berry pink with no shimmer. Good for work or daytime.i
I received a sample and I used it during a long soak in the tub. It did a fine job of hydrating my long fine hair, but it did not detangle well. Great herbal fragrance. Will not repurchase because I need the detangling that other conditioners provide.
Eye Shadow -L'Oreal - Wear Infinite Eyeshadow Quad 806 Canyon Stone
PaleBrunette 4/24/2013 8:09:00 PM
This is a pretty quad but it's just not very pigmented. I tend to use it when I just want a little definition with a bold lip. There are better alternatives for that look, so I will not repurchase.
Mascara -L'Oreal - Double Extend Eye Illuminator Mascara
PaleBrunette 4/24/2013 7:54:00 PM
This was a fun product that I just didnt use as much as I should have. I purchased coppery shade for blue eyes. The illuminating side was the gimmick but the black side was still a very decent mascara. No clumping, not a lot of volume, but did give length and definition. I would repurchase.
Lotions/ Creams -Palmers - Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula
PaleBrunette 4/23/2013 1:49:00 PM
I love to slather this creamy cocoa butter all over my skin right out of the shower. Very moisturizing and it's really cheap. I have a friend who complains about the fragrance when I wear it, but I like it. However,I don't want to gag my friends so I only apply it before bed now.
Lip Gloss -L'Oreal - Colour Caresse Shine Stain / Shine Caresse
PaleBrunette 4/23/2013 1:42:00 PM
I love these so much, I went back and got them all. They apply watery but set into a stain that lasts a little longer than most glossy glosses.
The spoolie on the end is genius. The pencil is just too soft and waxy to use as a pencil so I use it as a wax. Once my brows are done I use just a bit of this to hold them in place. It's really not useful for much else but every brow pencil should come with a spoolie. I will not repurchase.
