Very glamorous golden red- brown with shimmer AND sparkles. The finish is almost matte but you don't even miss it because it's so brilliant. Wears fairly well, even with the feathering problem mentioned by other reviewers. MAC vanilla scented, of course.

Wonderful foundation! I bought this product on a whim, and now have repurchased several times. Very natural finish, buildable coverage, blends well, and the best thing is that it actually has cut back on the amount of blemishes I have. I am a high-end makeup junkie, but this product has converted me. Highly recommended.
Lips -Sugar Cosmetics - Lip Habit- Lipstick & Lipgloss Set

I own Sugar Lip Habit in Gossip. The lipstick side is a sheerish dark red with subtle shimmer. The gloss side is a clear red with red glitter that (surprise!) tastes of sugar. I wear the gloss with almost everything except the lipstick it comes with. It is aptly named- I may be an addict. Why do they not sell the gloss in a larger size without the lipstick? Please, Sugar. Please.
Force is a beautiful, well-rounded color. A red/plum/brown with almost holographic golden shimmer and gorgeous shine. No discernable smell or taste, and the wear is good for a gloss. Beautiful with Chanel Hydrabase lipstick in Perplex, for more intensity and durability.
Lipstick -Delux Beauty - Sheer Lipstick [DISCONTINUED]

I own the Delux sheer Iipstick in Wallace. It is a lovely warm wearable red-brown, with no shimmer and no detectable scent. Wear is better than most for a sheer lipstick, but I would've liked a bit more shine. Finishes with a soft true to tone stain.
This is a great shampoo for dry ,thick, coarse hair like mine. it made my hair feel conditioned,controlled and defrizzed.That said, I would not likely buy this product again . Why? Because of the fragrance. This product has a overwhelming orange blossom scent that is just too overpowering to be borne. Even as I write, my nose burns thinking about it. Really. The fact that I dropped the glass bottle on the floor of my shower after 2 uses didn't help matters. All that scent just can't be good for you !
I own Vincent Longo frost lipstick in Warm Earth. It is a beautiful brown-red terracotta color with a fairly subtle shimmer.The texture of this lipstick is light and satiny- very 3D and sexy. I own dozens of lipsticks, but this is the one I reach for most often. However this particular color on "soft discontinue". It can be purchased from the company directly.
This product is not flashy, it will not change your life, nor will it "rock your world". It will, however subtly give skin a smoother appearance and reduce the need for powder. It's not silicone slippery like other primers, and I like that. When I use this product I invariably will catch a glimpse of myself in a mirror,even late in the day, and love the way my skin looks. My one caveat is that the product is a bit runny. You need to let your moisturizer dry before applying ,and then let the primer dry before foundation.
I really wanted to love this powder,but unfortunately it's just average. Slightly chalky texture-didn't blend well on me. Perhaps a better choice for oilier skins.
Fragrances -Creative Scentualization - Perfect Veil

Sorry guys- this is a sickeningly synthetic fragrance that smells of vanilla car freshener and "powder fresh" deodorant. I was very disappointed in the scent - very poor quality product for the price. I still have a full bottle in my closet. Now I have to figure out who I dislike enough to give it to!
