Why am I justnow discovering this line? I love this color, beautiful mermaidy bronze/green. The qualtiy of this shadow is outstanding. Stands up to nasty NYC summer days and does not get crease-ey. I got this in a trio in an adorable little blue compact with a great mirror and mini brush-not a spongy applicator thing! Hallelujah for Fresh. Also pretty happy with their lip glosses...
I bought this for my DH a few years back. I should stock up because this stuff is instant attraction for me. It has a warm, sweet and comfy feel to it, with a little fig which I love. MJ should have put this much effort into his women's fragrance. IMHO, the best men's fragrance out there (and nice on me too).
I usually use Laura Mercier TM and it tends to make my face very shiny after a few hours-though the color and sheer coverage is great. I picked this up two weeks ago and absolutely love it. Better then LM, no shinies and much cheaper. The Medium color works well for me (mmm). I use concealer with this and its all I need all day. Won't cover every little thing but is a nice complexion evener and SPF. Update: As the summer wore on this stuff made me very shiny. I switched to the oil-free tinted lotion in the pump. Less coverage, but much nicer on my skin.

Bottle is so darn cute but the stuff smells like RAVE hairspray to me. Eh.
I am in love with this foundation. Usually anything I use for foundation makes me shiny in 3 hours. Not this stuff. I get great, sheerish, matte coverage and don't need concealer under my eyes!! It smells a little flowery, but not overpowering. Packaging is old school and adorable. Looks delicate and girly on the shelf. Frosted heart shaped glass bottle with a flower on it, pink cap. I am MMM, tan easily and wear #3 with a light dusting of #5 powder foundation.

Love the packaging on this stuff. Pretty pale pink/peach compact with flowers on it. This color is the perfect rosy peach on my MMM skin. I have tons of blush in this color palette (orgasm, LM opera, dandelion, flush sticks, and on and on) and this is my fav now.Also used as a highlight on smoky eyes.
I wish everyone had the experinece I do with this product. You have to be patient when applying. Exfoliate lips before application with a damp toothbrush. Line lips with applicator first then fill in centers. Wait about 30 secs and then apply gloss coat. Perfect lips that last all day! I never have to touch up and just keep the gloss wand in my purse for post- meals. My only gripe is finding colors that work. They do not look the same in the tube as they do on. So far, I love Cafe Laste (warm, reddy brown), Eternal Flame (Bronze Red with a little shimmer), Ever Reddy (bright red, not blue toned). Still searching for the perfect wedding lip color and have tried: Shell Pearl (milky peach with teensy bit of frost) and Malt pearl (pinky mauve with frost) I am MMM-GGG with Brown hair and eyes. To remove I use vaseline and wipe off with a tissue.
Might be too early for me to review, but had to say something. I tried this for the 1st time last night. Waited 5 mins and then followed with Nivea creme. No burning, just a slight tingle. This morning there was a HUGE difference in my skin. Much smoother, smaller pores and tone was better. One night's use!! Go figure. I will update in a few weeks. UPDATE: Still working for me. Yippee!
Great when I get bored with my other blushes. Easy to apply just the right amount for an "i just finished jogging" glow. Can be sticky, so wait until it dries completely before applying any powder. One of my favorites in the summer cause it doesn't melt off.
Couldn't live without this mascara. Used it for 4 years. Have not been able to find it's equal. Superb for lengthening and thickening my barely there lashes.
I use this little baby for stage makeup along with Studio Fix. Great coverage and does not break me out (even when dancing under lights for 3 hours a night).
Thank you MUA!! I adore this stuff, so cheap and so effective. I live in the South, so winter weather and dryness is a shock to my skin. I have been alternating Nivea and Clinique Total Turnaround and couldn't be happier.
Perfect. Get the kabuki handle brush too. I use it after applying a little concealer for my trouble spots and my skin looks fabulous. Easy as pie.
OMG. LOVE LOVE LOVE this brush. Was at Sephora in NYC. All 3 ladies with me picked this baby up and bought it. Hated to part with the $$, but such a great tool.

Works wonders for me. Great to perk up my skin and make it glow in the a.m. The only product that has ever made a visible difference on my skin. Update: New HG and much cheaper, alternating Nivea Creme and Clinique Total Turnaround.
