Very nice subtle brown. The little brush is perfection. Although the color is very subtle its buildable and very nice for a natural look. Doesn't travel around the eyes, wonderful to do that "50s" sweep under the eyes

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this! It's like having your own lighting guy follow you around making sure you're lit up in just the right spots. I bought it during sephora sale (like $11) 2 months ago and wish I bought 10 more. I've tried so many highlighters and while I like the look of them, pores and pimple marks get in the way of looking finished but this product doesnt make my pores look huge or make me look greasy. Honestly girls, prescriptives magic, benefit, cover girl, whatever has nothing on this.
So far this is the best "sculpting" powder I've used. I try to make the tip of my nose slimmer and this color is so natural and "cool" looking. People who've tried to slim their nose w makeup will know that usually these products are reddish which ends up bringing more attention to that area, this is nothing like that. Also very good on cheeks etc but because of the price I'll just use it on my nose

This covers up like nobody's business and looks very nice. But I remembered why I didn't get it years ago (other than the price) the Mineral Oil in it :( If it didn't have that this would be the bestest concealer EVER. So richly pigmented and the tiny pot will last forever. If you don't break out or mineral oil doesn't affect you, go get it!
Powder -New York Color - Loose Face Powder - Translucent

Note: I only use this for light powdering, like xtra undereye to keep shadows from falling on my makeup or if I went overkill with the blush. It's cheap, pretty good milled and color is nice. Even using it as a tester for different techniques (in place of my more expensive powders) it saves me loads of $$ Be careful with the packaging because it'll leave a huge mess!
Thanks to this I appreciate my HE foundations more. This does things I haven't seen my other foundations do like rub off with just one wipe :( Pros: spf 18 or so, good for ppl with yellowish color, good coverage, ok texture, easy bottle-make sure to screw top on well or will leak into cap, mineral so can't be too bad right? Cons: Rubs off easily, makes top of my nose look porcupinish- giving me the urge to scrub, quite yellow.
All those expensive skinlines can kiss my booty (claudalie I'm looking at u) how they go on and on about their secret magical ingredient grapeseed oil which is supposed to stop wrinkles, making ppl shell out $30+ for tiny products. I bought 16 oz of pure grapeseed oil for $10. It is perfection on oily/combo skin because it's the lightest oil I've ever used. It balances out the skin within a week. I use it as a cleanser and after-shower moisturizer for the face. I tried it on my legs but it wasn't moisturizing enough so if you tend to get dry mix this with a heavier oil like almond or olive for sufficient moisture. ETA: I used to have cystic acne, using this with mint julep mask and pure rose water as toner got rid of them completely within 1 month. You cannot know how petrified I was trying it but just trusted MUAers and nailbunny it all worked out. It wont work for everyone, we all have different problems and causation but this worked perfectly on me. Great at removing makeup, doesn't sting the eyes (unlike almond oil), and is a good little barrier. My skin soaks it up completely within 1 hr. Even if you only use it as an eye makeup remover, it'll still save you loads of money and are much safer than products with 10+ ingredients.

My skincare HG, Thanks to nailbunny who got me into this method, I have fell in love with my skin again. I kept torturing it like an enemy but now i see it as my best friend (right next to my dog and diamonds :) ) I load up on grapeseed oil ASAP when I get home to get rid of all the makeup, wiping it away, If makeup still there i will wash with a gentle cleanser.
Holy wrinkles!!! This thing dries skin and makes lines. If having problem w packaging, take off the top spongey thing.
I love it! THE thing MUAers got me on! If too drying on your skin you can put some oil prior to applying this to have a "barrier" and it still works! Bought it way cheap (free thanks to a promo) and it works wonderfully at stopping zits in their tracks. love it love it love it!!!
How can I explain this product. I've been using redken soft since 2002. Back then it was Ah-Mazing, literally girls sitting next to me would play with my hair and talk about how soft and shiny it is. But sometime in 2004 or so Loreal bought redken and changed the packaging and I'm guessing the formulation because it is no where near as good anymore. Pros: it USED to be the best back in early 2000s. Lately its been on sale in salons a lot more though so cheaper :) Cons: Flattens hair and curls. ps. I had the old soft mask sitting around I thought I'd use for "emergency" and it crumpled up, the mask literally ate the plastic! I don't know what they put in that stuff but :O eek

I don't think this cleans very effectively because after about 2 weeks of use my skin became all congested and blah. Pros: doesn't hurt the eyes, even if put on lids pretty pink good packaging Cons: Doesn't clean effectively False hope in minimizing pores and cleaning Bottom Line: doesn't do what it's supposed to I'll keep it and update later when my skin is better but for now it sucks and i need ultra-strong cleanser

I really like this chunky pencil. I use it on my lids over my eyeliner, cupids bow, and brow bone. It definitely lightens up my eyes without looking disco-ish. I took off one lippy for the price because there has gotta be a cheaper alternative (ps. cover girl cunky pencil is crap so that's no alternative, back when I was in hs years ago I used claire's chunky plastic pencil which was as good but can't remember the price) (pps. I got it in the legally bronze kit so I didn't pay full price on this) Pro- does what it needs to Con- kinda expensive for what it is/ lots of imitators which could be as good.

Dirt cheap at $11, so soft, hasn't shed yet, nicely dense. Definitely reccommend, I'm so glad I found these before spending a fortune at sephora or mac.
