I am not a hair person at all, and I am pretty much a baseball cap guy. I have always wanted the messy look for my hair and never found anything that made me feel comfortable with "messy" hair. I did about 4 sprays of this on my hair and ran my fingers through it a couple of times and BAM !!!! Going to be my HG product this summer for sure!
Primer/ Corrector -NARS - Pore Refining Primer - Oil Free
Texasbrian14 3/2/2011 2:24:00 PM
This primer is exclusive to Sephora for the time being. Very glad NARS reformulated the face primers! No silicone feel just like the old one which is a plus. Cooling sensation! Really does help reduce my redness in my skin too. The best part of this primer is that it has water on tap so your skin will always be hydrated! Major Plus !!!!
This NARS eyeliner pencil is great on everyone, especially if you have any green in your eyes. The chocolate brown pencil seems to be infused with red and purple pigments therefor giving the user a nice dimensional effect. Really enjoying MAMBO eyeliner :)
I cant believe this mascara has such a low reviews ... One coat actually gets my lashes a nice curl as well which is hard to find. Gives me pretty good length as well too. As far as volume goes I added a second coat only to the lash line and then I got the added volume I was looking for. It didn't flake or smudge on me. Will recommend to everyone to try.
Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel in Blacktrack

This is my number one gel eyeliner! I would say that I have gone through about 6 or 7 of these pots alone. Blacktrack is amazing. I will rotate this one with rich ground and macroviolet when working on customers! THE BEST out there!
I have Orgasm in many forms due to NARS palettes but my "baby" laguna bronzer is almost running out so I decided to put the full sized duo because it came in a gift set. I like use Laguna Bronzer to contour the skin, bronze the entire face, and I like to use this in the crease of the eyes for depth and dimension. Then I use the Orgasm blush for cheeks and highlighting the cheekbones too. It also makes a great eyelid color as well. So if you are a little questionable about purchasing this blush/bronzer duo think of it this way ... you have 2 colors for both checks and eyes!!!!
I tried one of my friends Dessert and OMG it looked there was nothing on my face but did give me a nice complexion! I felt like it kept me matte longer and felt very soft and smooth! Got many compliments on it too :) Will have to purchase my own very soon!
Very universal eye shadow. Add it to the crease for a sultry natural look. Perfect for anyone with brown eyes on the lid. I like to put Ondine all over the lid and then Nepal in the inner part of the lid with Black Moon as a liner for a soft smokey eye. Easy to blend and easy to create multiple looks with :)
Your shadow will not move!!!! I have oily eye lids and this is one of the top eye primers that I have ever used! I have also had women come back and asked me which eye primer I used on them because their stuff stayed on all night! I like to use this primer with the creams to ensure even longer lasting, crease-free color!
A very good staple for anyone wanting a natural look. The pinker side isnt really that pigmented so I like to use it as a highlighter on the brow bone and well and the cheekbones. Try mixing it with Orgasm multiple too :)

I own about 8 of this brush! Love LOVE Love how this brush can work in so many ways! Use the flat side for lid and highlight ... use the tip for the crease! Use this brush for your concealer for a flawless natural finish! Use this brush to nude out the lips before lipstick application. Very Universal :)
Loose Powders -MAC - Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder
Texasbrian14 12/5/2010 10:46:00 PM
I LOVE this loose powder!!!! MAC has done it again. I have tried MAKEUP FOREVER HD setting powder and MAC PREP+PRIME Finishing Powder BLOWS it our of the water :) Very little goes along way. Have used this on a professional shoot for touching up and it works great. Will be purchasing again :)
MUST HAVE for anyone who like to wear the natural look! It goes on sheer but adds a little big of purple n gold to the eye. Easy introduction to color if your used to using browns. A STAPLE in my bridal kit!!!!
Moisturizers -MyChelle - clear skin balancing cream
Texasbrian14 12/4/2010 1:01:00 PM
I use the MyChelle Clear Skin Cleanser, Clear Skin Toner Pads, and used to use the Oil Free Grapefruit Moisturizer ... decided to purchase the Clear Skin Balancing Moisturizer and WOW ... Totally worth it and my skin cleared up in a day or two. No hate towards the Oil Free Grapefruit but using the Teen Acne line products really worked :) Never been happier with my skincare :)
A must have in my makeup kit and possibly one of the few products that I could not live without. Sheer down or build up the color with a brush or finger tips. Over powder foundation for longer lasting potential. Dab on the lips as well for a rosy natural lip color. GOING TO PURCHASE AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN !!!!
