Eyeliner -Clinique - Cream shaper for eyes starry plum
Trix 11/16/2005 2:47:00 PM
This is my favorite eyeliner ever. It goes on so well. I wish Clinique made it in more colors. It goes on so well, really creamy and smooth. I also find that pairing it with the Clinique Touch Base makes a huge difference. I can see how this can slide off by the end of the day. But with the Touch Base, it looks great after a full day, like I just put it on.
I wanted a wand concealer mainly because my undereye skin is dry and the stick wasn't doing it for me anymore. I like the wand applicator, but that's about it. The consistency is ok, but it does not do a great job in covering anything up. Actually, it might be a bit too watery.
Loose Powders -Sonia Kashuk - Barely There Loose Powder in Naked

This is a really nice finely milled powder, even more so than the Clinique loose powder that I used to use. The shade Naked looks a bit too pale in the pot (even for my very pale skin), but goes on really well. I just wish I was able to get more through the sifter at one time. But that's a small thing. I'll definately re-purchase.
Lipstick -Clinique - Moisture Sheer SPF 15 [DISCONTINUED]

I got this in a GWP in Sheer Natural, which is a lovely rosy YLBB shade that goes well with my PPP coloring. I love the texture- it's a lot like the Almost Lipsticks, but with this one, the color is what I like the best. Has a good amount of shine, not as much as a gloss. I love this.
Liquid -Clinique - Gentle Light Makeup ] [DISCONTINUED]

I was looking for a light foundation because my skin is basically good. I just wanted something to even it out. The MA tried Candle Glow, and it was a perfect match as I am pretty pale. The coverage is good. I don't look like I am wearing foundation. Texture-wise, it is less thick than the Superbalanced Makeup, which I used to use. My main complaint is the size of the bottle's opening- when I place a finger over it to apply, there is space because the mouth of the bottle is large. I am going to have to find a new way to apply this, because otherwise I am pleased with it.
When I first opened this it was hard to not run my tongue across the top- it looked delicious. And the scent is lovely. But I find it a bit pricey. Even though it has a great texture and goes on nicely, it's not worth the money.
This gloss was part of the Winter Beauty Portfolio, though I believe it's sold on its own. It looks like a deep red in the tube, which initially made me nervous because I am pretty fair-skinned. But it goes on as a sheer gorgeous raspberry that's not too dark. It has a great texture and great staying power.
This is a great product- a neutral nude with shimmer. It looks great alone or over lipstick. I'm a PPP with blond hair and this goes nicely with my coloring.
I got a small quad as part of a GWP. So far I've used Misty Mink and Creme Lustre, a khaki shade that looks great with my brown eyes. The colors are very similar to the middle and lighter shade in the Stila Bohemian Sage trio. And on me, they lasted all day (over Clinique Touch Base) without creasing. They also went on and blended nicely. I'm not a fan of Lancome shadows but I may be a convert now.
This is a gorgeous shadow- a neutral champagne peach that looks great with my brown eyes. It goes on nicely and lasts when I use it over a base. If I ever have to repurchase I probably will, though there is a lot of product in this pan.
I love Cargo's packaging and have never had a problem with it. I ordered this shadow during a Drugstore.com promo after reading the reviews here. The color does look scary in the pan, a shimmery greenish gold. It goes on sheer, but it does not do much for me. Though I think it will be pretty for spring.
My favorite thing about this is the fruity smell. And for a clear gloss, it gives a lovely shine. When you look in the tube you can see bits of glitter, and as the gloss wears off I feel the glitter on my lips. I like this, but I think there are better clear glosses out there.
I'm a PPP with brown eyes and blond hair, and I love this. I think the key to success with this trio is not overdoing the middle shade, a peachy bronze. I use a light layer on the lid after lining with the deeper shade. Then I use the palest color, a gorgeous pale pinky-peach, up to the browbone.
This is a great eye cream, but the packaging is the pits. The stuff just streams out of the tube without being squeezed. Other than that, I think I will repurchase because I think this is going to get rid of my tiny lines.
This came out of the tube very thick and clumpy, and went on that way as well. I was not impressed with this product.
