I usually avoid green eyeliners as they can have a yellowish cast that doesn't look great, but this one is the exception. An olive green that looks nearly black from a distance. Wears and wears and wears, even in the summer heat. A big hit, and a nice change if you normally wear black E/L.
Love this product. I had lost hope of finding a cream-type eyeshadow that would work for me, but this redeemed the idea. I have this in platinum satin, and the color is beautiful. The packaging is absolutely gorgeous, pretty enough to have sitting out on your vanity table for display.
A friend of mine at work had noticeably different eyelashes, and I thought she was using Latisse. She told me she was using this mascara, so I tried it, and wow... I love it. Unlike other reviewers, I don't find that it clumps at all - you have to take care to comb the lashes with the brush to make sure that they separate fully, instead of just brushing on multiple coats the way you do with many other mascaras. This is now my HG mascara. I've tried Diorshow, Hypnose, Defencils, and many others (including every one in the Sephora mascara set), and none of them make my eyes look like this. I was even asked if I was wearing false lashes, although my eyelashes are not that long without this mascara! If I want a super, super dramatic look, I will use Lancome Cils Booster first, followed by this.
Brows -Anastasia Of Beverly Hills - Perfect Brow Pencil in Strawburn

$22 seems like a lot for a brow pencil, but not when you've spent your entire strawberry blonde/redheaded life trying every pencil on the market. This is it for me, my HG pencil. When this became hard to find, I purchased the Anastasia brow powder in the same shade (strawburn), and I love it even more than the pencil, because it is buildable as a powder, so I can simply add more if I want a more dramatic brown, or use less for daily wear. If you have trouble finding the pencil, seek out the powder!
Eye Shadow -Christian Dior - 1-colour extreme: GOLD TOUCH 546

Love this gold. I seek out gold/coppery shadows, and this is hands-down the best. I tried it on at a Sephora just as the store was closing. I was with a friend, and as we were walking, she said she just loved the color on me. When I got home, my husband said the same. With so many rave reviews, I ran back to the store the next day to pick it up. I've been wearing it at least once or twice a week since then.
Absolutely love this quad, and bought it on a whim at my local outlet mall. SO glad that i did. Every color is gorgeous, and I may have to repurchase some of them individually if I ever run out.
Love it. Wish they had it when I was younger and my skin was acne-prone. I have noticed a major different in my skin since starting to use this. In fact, two of my friends already bought them just based on the difference in my complexion (which was already good!) My skin looks brighter, clearer, and exfoliated. I find that this helps remove dead skin, and leaves me skin extremely smooth. Best beauty-related purchase I think I've ever made.
I was in Sweden and visited a FACE Stockholm store hoping to snag some products at a lower local price, only to find that they are actually less expensive in the U.S.! However, the quality of all the products I tried was excellent. I bought this shadow in #28, which is a color that is difficult to explain, an orangey color that I did not think would look good on me at all (red hair, brown eyes) -- I feared the Raggedy Anne look! But, the makeup artist assured me I should try it, and behold, it actually looked fantastic! It's one of my favorite colors now, and I reach for it all the time.
This is my first eyeshadow from Bobbi Brown, and I love it - a perfect, neutral color that I could wear every day. Simple and understated, makes me look very well-rested and calm. Love it!
I agree with the previous reviewer- this is not a great color, hard to work with, does not stay on well, is not blendable... very disappointing.
This color is one-of-a-kind. I use it almost daily to highlight the inner corner of the eye (one of Carmindy's favorite tricks), and the effect is fabulous.
Very nice color - great in combination with browns, as it picks up the golden hues. Can be layered for a stronger effect. Could be worn for day if applied lightly enough, although I usually save it for night.
This is the worst MAC shadow I have ever tried, and until I saw the reviews on here, I thought perhaps I must have bought one from a "bad batch" or something, because this shadow has no staying power. Can't blend it, can't find a way to use it. Not impressed with this!
Love this color. Great for summer, or even fall. I am a redhead with brown eyes and coppery flecks, and this brings them out. Fantastic color.
Eye Shadow -MAC - Warming Trend--Cool Heat collection

This is a nice neutral tan color, but simply isn't special enough to work with my coppery brown eyes. I've tried experimenting with other color combinations, but because I have more orangey/amber in my actual eye color, and this has grey undertones, it doesn't work so well. However, the color would look great on people with dark brown or blue eyes, in my opinion.
