I bet this blush looks awesome and anyone that doesn't have olive skin. I you, like me (nc35-40), happen you have olive skin, then save your money or buy something else because Douceur is just useless. It barely shows up. I used it once and swapped it for Deep Throat, which looks amazing =) Two lippies because it's not the blush's fault that it doesn't work for me.
Woa I'm suprised by the bad reviews!!! This is an awesome lippie. On my light mauve lips it looks like a dark peacy coral/burnt pumpkin coral (I suck at descriptions), beauuutifull!!! The formula is excellent, these just glide on your lips and feel very very moisturizing. Ohh it looks beautiful with NARS Gina on the cheeks! x) The color will probably suit better medium-dark, olive, tan and dark skintones. I will buy this again and again!

Wow! I can't believe the quality of this product. Yes, the packaging sucks. Yes,the two lighter shades have glitter and are not very pigmented, BUT, the two dark shades are nothing but pure brown goodness! I love to use both with NYX Sahara all over the lid. Two awesome eye shadows for just $1! what more can you ask for? I plan to get some more of these. A++++
Oopps I reviewed this cause I read HEREDES. That's the one I actually own =/ Sorry!!!!
Lipstick -Revlon - ColorStay Ultimate Liquid Lipstick in Prized Peach
ile 3/21/2010 4:51:00 PM
Love this color! On me it looks like a peachy coral. Beautiful on its own and better yet with clear gloss on top (L'oreal Colorjuice). I hate long wearing lipsticks since they're generally pretty drying. This is no exception (minus one lippie) so I always, always but either lip balm or clear gloss. No feathering no flakes, just beautiful glossy peachy coral lips! I will buy this again and again.
Like the muaer below I tried this because of MUA. I wanted the PM but ny Walgreens doesn't carry it do I settle for this one. Great moisturizer. My combination skin absorbs it really fast and doesn't make me oily. I use it before going to bed and everytime I take off my make up. I will buy this again for sure!
IMO the best toner for oily/combination skin. Non drying, smells great (at least Humphreys does) and it is very refreshing. Also great for sensitive skin, since is natural and very gentle. Without a doubt my HG toner.

Love the smell and packaging. Although I haven't seen any improvement on my dark semi-circles (colorwise) this cream is really moisturizing and the best part it doesn't make my eyes sting (like all about eyes did!) just that makes it my HG eye cream. I've been using it for 2 months day and night and still have more than half left. I will buy this again and again.
Eye Shadow -NYX - Trio TS3 - Nude Taupe Dark Brown

Love it. Perfect for work and everyday looks. It's a no brainer neutral palette that in my opinion works for anyone. Great pigmentation and when you use a mac 217 a little product goes a long way.
Makeup Brushes -Coastal Scents - Italian Badger Buffer Brush Large
ile 3/19/2010 9:51:00 PM
I had such high hopes for this brush. I have the synthetic buffer and bought this one to have on rotation (I use both to apply foundation). While it's not a bad brush it is NOT as good as the synthetic buffer. The brush feels somewhat scratchy, not to the point of make it impossible to use it, but it is not as soft as I thought it would be. It works great with my foundations and I use it, but, the main reason I gave it only 3 lippies: it shades like crazy, even after washing it! I'm press for time before going to work and the last thing I want having to pick up tiny black or long white hairs from my face! The shedding has decreased after 3 weeks of use, but it stills shed. I would not buy this again and I've should have bought another synthetic buffer instead of this one. EDIT: I added a lippie to this brush because it works wonders for blush and bronzer!!! I think it's liquid products that made it shed. It works awazingly for buffing powder and cream products. It's Still a bit scratchy nothing too awful) still minus one lippie.

My current foundation brush. This brush is extremely soft and works like a dream. I stipple the foundation then buff away in circular motions. No shedding, no weird smell just awesome foundation application. You really need to try this! If you only can buy on CS brush buy this one. EDIT: I no longer use this. DH got me a Hakuhodo brush as a gift.
Beautiful pink peachy color. Looks great on my nc37-40 skin. Amazing staying power, great texture. You only need a little bit. This is the first NYX blush I've tried and I just ordered 3 more on eBay. Great quality and IMO very comparable with MAC Blushcremes, minus the price!
Blush -Maybelline - Dream Mousse Blush in Peach Satin ] ] [DISCONTINUED]
ile 2/1/2010 10:21:00 PM
I got this yesterday at Walgreens (all Maybelline products were 50% off) and I loved how it looked on the container. However, I'm an nc37-40 and this does not show up on my skin. At all. I used a brush, I used my fingers, I aplied and applied and applied product and all I saw was the tiny shimmery particles it has. I bet this would be gorgeous on lighter skin. I think I'll use it as a highlight, but I won't buy this shade again. I gave it two lippies because of the texture and the cute container.
Makeup Brushes -Bare Escentuals - Feather LIght Brush
ile 1/31/2010 5:26:00 PM
I don't know why I've waited so long to review this amazing brush. I bought it to use it with my Bare Minerals Matte, but it sucked for that. Then I decided to use it for blush (which I believe is what this brush is supposed to be used for) and for that it works like a dream! Currently I have three of them: one for peach or coral blushes, one for pink or mauve blushes and one for bronzer or orange blushes. YES, it is THAT GOOD!!! I don't know the regular price of these, but I got them from ebay at $10 each and all from the same amazing seller. However, I only use them at home. It scares me a little bit to carry them on my makeup bag and damage the bristles, so for touch ups I use a different brush. Give this a try, you will love it!!!
Blush -Clinique - Blushwear Cream Stick - Rosy Blush
ile 1/29/2010 7:54:00 AM
I got this from my aunt, who always has to by every offer from Clinique. This is my first cream blush and all I have say is wow! I'm nc37-40 and on my skin this looks like a peachy pink. I apply it with BE feather light brush and it blends like a dream. It has an amazing staying power, but we still have cold weather here (cold as in Caribbean cold) I'll have to check once the sun starts warming up. I have an oily tzone and an extremely oily nose, but my cheeks are normal. I don't know how would it work for oily skin, but if you can get your hands on a sample give it a try! I will buy the regular size once I'm done with this one =)
