Eye Shadow -MAC - Femme-Fi from Neo Sci-Fi Collection
Rholynn 10/1/2009 3:57:00 PM
Got a few of these for free from a Macy's fashion show/event. I absolutely absolutely absolutely love this color. I like it better than naked lunch and all that glitters because it has a more neutral tone to it. I can use it with warms or cools, and it always looks perfect. I would definitely repurchase this again and again
Lip Treatments -MAC - Suntints Spf 20 Lip Balm - Full of Grace
Rholynn 9/23/2009 6:35:00 PM
Picked up this lip balm just recently and so far I really like it. It reminds me of a glaze more than a balm. The color is perfect fleshy pink. I love it with or without color underneath. I only reapply once during the day and it has some pretty awesome staying power. It also isn't drying like most lip products. It doesnt leave that white film on the inner side of your lips. I will probably try out the other colors from this line, or at least try to stock up on this color.
Loose Powders -MAC - Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder

Packaging isn't too bad, but it could be improved. That aside, this product is great. I agree with the positive reviews on how well it actually keeps oil at bay and keeps make up looking fresh. Worth the money and will definitely repurchase.
Primer/ Corrector -MAC - Prep + Prime Face Protect SPF 50
Rholynn 9/23/2009 4:11:00 PM
I relied on smashbox's photofinish light for a while and realized it wasn't doing as good a job as I would have liked. Based on some reviews I read here on Mac's prep/prime spf 50, I gave it a while. OMG. This glues that make up onto your face like no one's business. I wear my make up from 530am -5pm with no trouble. It doesn't fade off from sweat either. (When I go straight to the gym from work) I use this with Mac's prep/prime transluscent powder which I'm sure helps 100%, this is officially the best primer --for now.
Pressed Powders -Christian Dior - Diorskin Pressed Powder
Rholynn 9/23/2009 4:05:00 PM
I absolutely love this product! I've noticed during the summer that liquid foundations tend to oil up on me early on during my work day, I end up having to blot twice during the day and by 4pm my MU is a mess. (I start my day at 530am) So I figured I needed something lighter to wear for work, and I decided on powder foundation after reading a review for Milani. Their powder foundation was fine, it just didn't do a great job with coverage and keeping oil at bay (mind you, it did a better job than liquid foundation) I've always wanted to try Dior's pressed powder foundation but was too cheap to spend the $40. But after some self-debate, I gave in and bought it. I am SO glad I did. I LOVE this powder. It's milled well, the scent isn't too strong (although if you don't like scented things this may not work for you), and it applies/blends so well. I use a flat top brush or a kabuki brush. I haven't used the sponge yet and I probably wont. The powder lasts all day, and I only blot once through 4pm. This could very well be HG for me. Important note: I use MAC prep+prime SPF 50 underneath it which is ALSO a god-send. I love love love love love this pressed powder.
I bought this to pair with creme cup. For some reason, once I applied the lip liner, it made me itch around the lips. I've never ever had that reaction with any mac product so maybe I just got a defective one? The formula is a little drying, moreso than other mac liners, which I also found strange. The color is quite nice though. I'll exchange this one for different one in the same color and maybe that one works out better.
This is a pretty pinky brown bronzed...not an intense color payoff but I use it over matte blushes to make it more luminous... I use this interchangeably with too faced pink leopard depending on my mood. I lovvveeee the price ok this one though .def buy again
Lipstick -MAC - Style Warriors- Brave New Bronze [DISCONTINUED]
Rholynn 6/2/2009 6:07:00 PM
Paired with elf's natural lip liner, and milani crystal gloss, this is my hg, wear with almost anything lip color.... I absoluuutteely love this--much better than blankety
This is my HG outer V and "deepening" color.... this and sketch....
Rich, deep bronze color which goes perfect on the lid, outer v or crease color.. This is a staple in my summery-bronzey eye looks and I will def keep repurchasing this... I wear this with bronze on the lid, wedge in the crease, orb for highlight and embark for outer V.... For an added punch, I use UD rockstar ... great great bronzey look...
Scrubs -Unlisted Brand - Soap & Glory - Scrub Your Nose In It
Rholynn 5/25/2009 2:15:00 AM
One of my favorite non-thick, exfoliating, skin brightening mask... You must try this..this is practically HG...
I love this stuff!!!! And it's soooo reasonably priced! it seems to work really well to make my legs look a bit more presentable.. it deposits a nice tingly feel when you apply it, and dries quickly. It works similarly to some murad firming cream that I used before, and this is way way less expensive I'd definitely buy this again
This is one of the best HE self tanners I have ever used. It applies well, smells great, dries fairly quickly (as long as you don't get wet w/in the first few hours you're set) and the results are a nice rich brow, rather than a yellowy-orangey tan.. The product is quite expensive, but I suppose thats the only con..any other con I can think of would be user-error lol. I use this with latex gloves so I don't have to deal with washing the product off of my hands. It eventually comes off but some of the brown will definitely stay on your palms..
Lotions/ Creams -Soap and Glory - The Righteous Butter
Rholynn 5/21/2009 11:36:00 PM
best body butter ever!! i've bought so many that just end up getting put away in the bathroom cabbie, but this--this sits on my dresser.. It smells very close to miss cherie and the thick velvety consistency is soooooooooooo nice. It keeps my hydrated all day long.. This is HG for me......... I would be pissed the F off if they ever discontinued this...then I'd cry...and cry some more
Still searching for the perfect lip liner for this one ....it looks great atop many lippies to tone them down but it's very sheer by itself.. If anyone finds a great liner to pair with this let me knows!!!! Nc35-37 for ref
