Mascara -Bobbi Brown - Lash Glamour Lengthening Mascara

I love the packaging...wish more mascara would do that! So you don't end up wasting a lot of mascara in a tube. But I would say this mascara takes more work than a mascara should and that's why I bought one and promptly returned it within a week. The spiral brush grabs a lot of extra, so you need to scrape at least 3 times to make sure there's nothing extra on; should you ever accidentally get it on your face while applying, it was impossible to take off; after applying three coats, it's just not dramatic enough. I got a Lancome Virtuose one when I returned this and am still using that. Like that one a lot more than this BB mascara.
Blush -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish in Northern Light

It's a nice blush, but not pigmented enough for me. I am NC30 with oily skin and it just doesn't show up that much on me. Or if I put a lot on, it doesn't last because my oily skin just eats it by the end of the day. I am looking for somehting more pigmented now a day. Plus this MSF has big flecks. I noticed big pieces of glitter around the pan, it's not fine enough.
Love it! It is this gorgeous orangy copper on me. Can be used with other gold colors.
OMG! Read on...I went to the Orlando MAC Pro store and had my eyes done by one of the best MAC artists ever! I told her I was always afraid of using red, fearing it would make me look sick (lots of people have this fear), so she and I played with this Ruby Red. She used pearl cream color base all over as a base, including under the brows. Then she put Ruby Red on the outer lid, layering with Shadowy lady (tiny bit). On the mid lid, she put mythology (which is gorgeous) and on the inner lid - retroseck. Then she filled in between my eye lashes and line my bottom eye with a black color such as Blacktrax. The results? A gold transitioning to orangy copper, transitioning to dark ruby/gold gorgeousness!!! I love MAC pro pigments!
Love this brush! I dip it in any of the dark eyeshadows, such as the black one from the new Gentle Fume palette to line between my eye lashes and the bottom of my eye. Its hair is soft enough that it doesn't poke your eyes and make it watery, as much as the other brushes do.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

For those with oily eyelids, please buy this! I have used many primer lotions for eyeshadows and this is the only one that lasts from 8AM to 8PM. I once was at a MAC counter and the SA wanted to try some new eyeshadows on me, when it came time to take my makeup off, she said "Geez, what do you have on your lids? It's hard to take off!"
Misc Beauty Tools -Clean & Clear - Oil Absorbing Sheets

Love this product! Keep in purse all times. I have really oily skin so everytime I use it, the oil seeps over the entire sheet, which will turn a transparent (oily) blue from a matte blue.
