As with the previous poster, I only wear long wearing lip formulas and these longwear lustres are awesome! I'm a darkskinned DDD and lustrebean is like the perfect neutral, YLBB for me. 98% of the time I have to wear a lip liner with my lippies to make them look right and I don't have to with lustrebean and that is SO refreshing! Its a very neutral and natural brownish pink on my lips. The wear is awesome, i've had it on for 8 hrs now and its still going strong. The lustrelongs came with a clear, microglittery topcoat which I don't particularly care for because I don't like to do glitter everyday but it does make the color really stand out. This might potentially be a HG lip color for me so DDD's defintely go and check it out!!
This lusterglass is very similar to enchantress but I love it because it didn't give me that milky overcast enchantress does to my very pigmented lips. Its a sheer, pinky peach color with shimmer. I use love nectar with my chestnut lip pencil and love it for a low key, natural look. Its the perfect spring color for me!
I think Chelsea is pretty decent. I'm recently venturing in the YLBB area and chelsea is my first purchase so I don't have alot to compare it to. However, chelsea is pretty close to my skin tone so I have to wear it with a lipgloss with some color to spruce it up a bit. Love it with Love nectar lustreglass. I'm a darkskinned African American with lots of red undertones.
Man, surprise, surprise that I would find my hg foundation in the Mary Kay line! I had tried it years ago and hated it so when I was dragged to a Mary Kay party recently I had already made up my mind I'd be the same. However, when I tried it it was awesome! One light layer gave me awesome coverage. I have acne scars and this definitly does a good job of covering them. Plus, I found a perferct match to my skin tone: 808. Also, I have acne prone skin and this hasn't triggered any breakouts at all. I especially love this foundation because it gives me awesome coverage without giving me that made up look. looks really natural. I love it!
this duo just gets an *eh* from me. beautiful in the pan but the colors don't show up very well on my DDD skin. definitely not as pigmented as my mediteranee and cleo duos. i hate to say, this is my least favorite of my nars duos. the only redeeming quality is the shimmery grey side is very nice to use as a light wash for my cool toned eye looks.
i really like this scent. very floral and light, just the way i like it. and also, its quite long lasting which is a plus. its my scent of the moment right now : )

This is my hair moisturizing HG. I have dried, highlighted and dyed relaxed hair that's really damaged. This stuff leaves my hair full, soft and moisturized and has really helped cut down the breakage. At first I thought the smell was icky but now I've gotten used to it and I actually like it now. This has definitely maden me an Aveda convert.
Hmmmm, i'm not wowed by this gloss but its not bad. I was looking for a YLBB and I think I've definitely found one. On me this is a light, shimmery brown that goes on without shine (its a stain). I like the color it gives but I like to add a little bit of gloss to it with a clear gloss.

LOVE THIS STUFF! Got it as a GWP and threw it in my m/u bag and forgot about it. Tried it a couple of days ago and actualy got defined, elongated, seperated lashes! Doesn't look all thick and clumpy either which I hate. I love how i can layer it on as much as I want and it only makes my lashes longer and longer but they stay defined and seperated as opposed to thick. I'm not having the clumpy and flaky issues everybody else seems to be having. Goes to show how everyone is different. My new HG *high end* mascara. Saving my pennies to get this bad boy in full size lol
Ok Gingerly is my first blush ever and now i want more more more! The MAC MA artist suggested I get it when I told her I was looking for a everyday blush that went with everything. On me gingerly gives me a barely there peachy brown cheek no matter how much I layer it on. I'm a dark skinned DDD warm with reddish undertones and I love the way this blends into my complexion to give me a natural glow. I love to wear it with my lancome juicy wear in chocolate impulse.
I'm seriously lovin this product. I've always hated wearing anything on my lips because Ihate the constant reapplying 24/7 that goes with it. i was searching for something that was good for everyday and doesn't rub off so badly on my boyfriend lol. The mac pro longwear line is a godsend in that aspect! I'm a dark skinned DDD and thought immovable would be too light for me but when the MA tried it on me i was in love! She tried it on with chestnut lip liner which wasn't bad but I like to wear it with my Nars Times Square lip liner. On me it comes out as a plum lip color with cool toned shimmer. Love it for my pinky/purplely m/u days. I like how you can control how much you put on and the staying power is definitely out of this world! All i have to do during the day is touch up on the liner and gloss and that's it.
Tupai is a warm, shimmery burnt orange, very beautiful color. I think it'll definitely look pretty on warm toned dark girls. On me it looks like an gold tinged orange color. I like that its really sheer which allows me to use it during the day. Its just ok as a e/s base for me though since it tends to crease towards the end of the day so I prefer my mac paint which doesn't at all. (dark skinned DDD)
This color looks bright blue green with shimmer in the tube but on me it turns into a shimmery teal and loses most of the blue tinge which is a bit of a dissapointment. I still like the end result though and I like how the color is buildable, initially very sheer but you can add more to intensify the effect. (DDD)
I have these in disco smoke, good red and pine. Disco smoke is a fuschia color, good red is exactly like its name and pine is a clear yellow color. I really like these glosses because as a DDD with pigmented lips, most glosses are too sheer for the color to show on me but these are perfect. These glosses have the best consistency of all I've tried so far(just mac and nars so far). They are very thick and a little bit is really all you need for a sheer color. On lips its not overly very shiny, just gives your lips a nice sheen which I really like because I'm not into the overly glossy lip look. The staying power is awesome and I don't have to reapply every two seconds. No smell or taste that I can detect which is definitely a plus. I will definitely buy this product again.
I'm using this as my spring pink eyeshadow. I'm excited I found it because usually pink colors sheer out on me but this one stays really true to the color in the pot. Love it! I really like it with motif or bronze. (I'm a DDD)
