Moisturizers -Lumene - Vitamin C+ Nourishing Day Cream
dropsofJupiter 6/23/2011 8:26:00 AM
I'm surprised at the negative reviews of this moisturizer. I've used a lot of different high end brands and found this one to be excellent. I don't get a greasy film at all, but I don't have oily skin. My MUFE foundations glide over it and my face retains the moisture until I cleanse. My skin looks great and I am very prone to irritation and breakouts. This did not cause any problems. It is paraben free and all natural and has a delightful citrus scent that quickly fades. For the price, I think this is a great product. However, it probably is better for more mature skin. I have used Murad Skin Perfecting Cream, Cream De La Mer and a range of others. I have repurchased this many times.
Eye Shadow -MAC - Unflappable Mega Metal Collection

This is not metallic as the line promoted. It is also a dupe for moth brown if anyone wants that. It is lovely and easy to work with..
I love this mascara. It isn't the easiest one to apply but it does give me amazing length. I did not have any smudging like some here reported. I love the look of this mascara.
Lip Gloss -L'Oreal - Infallible 6 Hour Lip Gloss in Rebel Red

This color is gorgeous and pigmented for a gloss but not over the top. It is long lasting as promised and non drying too which I love. These are a good second place gloss to mac lipglass IMO.
Satin Doll is a pink toned shade of purple plum and I have to say I love this lispstick. The texture is wonderful, applies easily, has no taste or scent, goes on glossy but not thin and sheer but still pigmented enough to be a lipstick not a gloss. The color is a great daytime shade for a cool look. I can see myself wearing this with a lot of makeup looks and the tube is packaged in a gorgeous little red box that has a flip up mirror. Now this is special packaging!!!! I am in love with this brand and feel it is worth the $20 price tag because it is in fact really special.
Eye Shadow -Becca - Eye Colour Powder (Shimmer) in Lurex

I love this e/s as a wash. On me it takes a golden tone but I am PPP cool to neutral. I love the way it blends and lasts all day. It gives a gorgeous finish with just the right amount of shimmer that is not frosty or glittery. It shows up well and is easy to use. I also love the sturdy packaging.
I love this mascara. I bought it even though I was happy with the ones I was using. It gives me a huge thick and long set of lashes. It applies easily. I did not like the thick wand of Full and Soft but for some reason this one does not make a mess. It did not flake or smudge. This mascara is a winner.
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express Turbo Boost Waterproof

I love this mascara and I continue to rebuy it and I stock up when it is on sale. I get a huge look with this formula, no flaking or smudging and it is easy to apply with no mess. It lengthens more than thickens but does increase volume too. This is a fabulous mascara and for the price you can't beat it.
Rougette is a beautiful purple toned red. It is extremely flattering for a PPP. It goes on silky smooth and looks gorgeous, lasts long and does not dry. I love this formula and love this color.
I am PPP cool to neutral and this blush looks fabulous on my skin. It gives a warm natural glow, without shimmer. It looked a bit orange to me in the pan but it blends really nicely and did not look orange on my skin. It did fade a bit by the end of the day, but all blush does that on me.
Lip Gloss -Becca - Glossy Lip Tint in "Maraschino"

I like the texture of this gloss but it is basically clear on me. I do not see any color at all. I am PPP and it does not show up. I use it over l/s but I would not repurchase for this reason.
I love this concealer! It comes with two coverages, one is a bit heavier than the other and the compact is divided in half for this. The color matches I got is excellent and I had a hard time picking because there were so many shades with subtle differences to let you get the perfect one. It felt like a dry thick cream, and seemed at first like this would be only for special occasions but I used it under my eyes and was amazed at the way it blended and did not settle into any lines. I used it with the Stick Foundation which I also love. If you can't find a concealer to match, you must see this brand and give it a try. I am PPP with normal to dry skin but the color range covers many deep tones.
I have normal to dry, PPP skin. I absolutely love this foundation. At first I was a bit worried that it was too dry to blend and would be too heavy. It isn't. I usually wear foundation with light coverage and I apply a dab of this on forehead, cheeks, nose and chin and blend it with fingertips. The warmth from my fingers blends it perfectly and it goes on smoothly. I don't find this greasy at al in fact like the concealer it feels very dry. It lasted all day through hot temperatures and lots of perspiring and I never felt oily. In fact, I never felt the foundation at all which is very important to me. The color match I got with Praline is perfect. I will use this when I really want to look perfect! It gave a flawless look all day.
I really love this color for summer. I am ppp but I do get a little bit tan just walking around in the sun. This is a natural tawny shade. I do wish it had a bit less glitter in it but I still love it. The texture is really soft too.
I love this color. It is a plum toned taupe but it is light enough to wear on the lid. It gives a lovely polished look with some shimmer, not a lot of frost. I got this as a recommendation from a MUer. I overlooked it when it was in the store because I just didn't think it was special. I am glad I tried it because it is great for a neutral look.
