My new favorite eyeshadow for a bronzy look. I love this damn color! It's so pretty for spring/ summer especially with all these new bright lippies taking over this is perfect to keep the eye natural but helping it too stand out on its own at the same time without looking like to much. Im nc45 mix with nc 50 and i wear this as a lid color with nothing else or with texture in the crease blended out with my 224 lightly and this makes beautiful smokey eyes and some blacktrack to line my eyes with lots of mascara and it's just so seductive. Mulch doesn't create a harsh look that some browns can, thats why i do this as a lid color mainly and even for those days i want to keep it soft, this on my lid packed on with my 239 with some mascara, with coppertone blush and some viva glam v lip gloss and I'm good to go! Pls try this if you haven't. Highly recommended.
If i were to go buy these reviews i would have left stormy pink in the storm but i didn't since i have a makeup addiction, anyways this color actually shows up pretty nice on me as i am of very tanned complexion and i think it is a dupe of pink nouveau. It needs some lip balm underneath or lip prep and prime by mac and the color shows up as it would looking at the lipstick through the cap. Another gem from revlon! looks great with magneta lip liner from mac also.
This is a very pretty color if granted its on the right skintone for me, its very flattering. Its like a rust, terracota brownish color but not muddy looking. Its honestly the color of a leaf in autumn. I like to wear this when i use club on my lids with blacktrack and coppertone blush on my cheeks and margin as a highlight. I can see it being a hard color to work with bc of its color but it works fine for me. I took a lippie off because it's not available at the drugstores where i live since moving to jersey, i have to wait to purchase this in manhattan where i work. To bad you can't try before you buy but hopefully can purchase it on sale so it won't be to much of a loss.

This is a big chunk of love right here. Very pretty for the upcoming summer months. All the colors work well together or alone. I went wonder woman crazy when that collection came out this however was my favorite thing out of the collection and one of their eyeshadow quads. This thing is huge, was going to buy a backup but didn't bc when would i run out of this thing???? and i have to many makeup items to use but glad i got it for my collection. Don't worry if it gets wet a little, meaning my two year old son, jaden found my msf on the table and opened it when i wasn't looking and was licking it bc he thought it was a huge cookie, i almost went kamikaze style on him bc i had got it that same night, but it dried and went back to normal. Just be careful if you have little kids like me around that likes to use our makeup items for snacks!
Love this ish! so pretty. On my caramel complexion this just screams pretty. It works amazing on tanned complexions and im sure others who are not if done right with the right brush and application. I use my 187 alone and/or sometimes the 168 and just buff it out with the 187 as it is heavily pigmented. Looks great with pink lipsticks or nude colors. I recommend for all to try!
This lip liner makes me feel so girlie. Love this with girl about town or just about any fuchsia lipsticks i own, Rose hip by milani, revlon fuchsia colorburst, show orchid etc. Great color to own if you want to get colorful!
I Like this a lot when im doing nudes. Hated fresh brew at first but repurchased that when i discovered this. Looks great when paired together and chai looks great with plum lip liner as the previous reviewer stated. Will always keep as a staple! Also hated c-thru to milky and got this! Love it !
I am not a lip liner fiend but i love wearing lipsticks so i had to adapt to the idea of using a lip liner which to me isn't always necessary but does help in keeping your lipstick looking crisp. Anywhoo, i hated cork and only used it for maybe one or two lipsticks, had chestnut before cork and that was gross to old school but wanted something really natural with a hint of brown and here comes one of my makeup gifts from god, hodgepodge. Looks great with almost everything but i tend to get lip liners that are somewhat in the same family as the lipstick shade so i use this when im doing nudes, but any6way great staple if you have jumped on the im sick of the cork and chestnut bandwagon, that mac employees always recommend to us bc of our skintone.
Great nude for women of color, Looks great also when paired with plushglass in big kiss. It will probably look strange on someone lighter than an nc40 but definitely try before you buy. I love this one. Can be worn with neutral or dramatic eye makeup.
HG!HG!HG!HG! beautiful color for the spring/summer season! I'm really starting to love revlon's lip glosses. I got all of them except peach petal and firecracker and im extremely happy with them. Smooth, non-sticky and long lasting. Looks great on its on or over coral colored lipsticks. I grabbed the last two as these seem to be the new diamond in drugstore cosmetics. Also when i got them i got it on a bogo so to buy one get one half off was a blessing as these are easily just as good as high end brands.
Being a woc, i must say i hate this pencil on me, i still find it to dark, dont let me get started on chestnut which makes me feel like i have vampire lips. I gave it a two bc the only lipstick that make it looks somewhat usable is my viva glam v which i love to death, love that lippie but anywhoo! if it wasn't for that i would NOT be using it instead i go with more of a natural subtle lip liner like hodgepodge which i love.
Styling Products -Unlisted Brand - Miss Jessie's Curly Buttercreme

I actually like this product, i dont use it on myself i use it on my ten month old son christian who has very curly hair but extremely dry and being that its a sandy colored brown it looks even drier. I got this creme bc my mom who has naturally curly hair raved about it and suggested it. Didn't appreciate the price tag that came with it but my kids are worth every single dollar and this proved to be sent from heaven on my baby boy's hair. I like the smell not to overpowering and i don't use a lot as with anything you shouldn't overdue it and his hair is moisturized and his curls are not dying of thirst anymore.
Wow this color is sexy! and perfect for spring/summer as far as im concerned. It really lights up my face, im nc45 mixed with nc50 in mac and it looks great against my caramel complexion. I'm pretty sure it would look great on anyone that's brave enough to wear it. I like to wear this with magenta lip liner and revlon's shine city clear gloss in the middle of my bottom lip to give it extra sparkle and i turn heads like it's no tomorrow. Even without the extra gloss it looks great bc it is an amplified lipstick so it wears comfortably on the lips although for extra caution i wear the prep and prime lip for superior results. Love this color and will keep buying!
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Colorstay Mineral Lipglaze, Forever Fig 510
jaden08 4/16/2011 11:35:00 AM
I love this lipgloss so much that i repurchase it every time there is a bogo going on at the drug store in fear of it selling out or being discontinued. You know that song forever my lady by jodeci? well i sing forever my fig! bc the color is just that great on me. Im nc45/nc50 now in mac and this color is very flattering if your looking for a nude gloss that will warm your skin tone up and not wash you out. It's very warm beige, with some peach and brown on me, gorgeous, the same thing you see on the tube is what you get. I put some mac prep and prime lip on first then maybelline clear lip liner and this on top with revlon lipgloss also in nude lustre on top of fig when i want that extra pop and it's pure love and although i can't stand the initial smell it's well worth trying. Pretty long lasting as well.
Being pregnant has been hard on my sense of smell so a few of my fragrances i qualify as hg's have been too hard on the nose that's where daisy comes in. I told my loving husband to get me something that was light, non powdery and for summer and he got this. This is a very lightweight perfume, i got the 3.4 oz bottle. It smells like summer, not overwhelming like a few other perfumes i own. It lasts about 2 hours on my skin yet if i sniff my clothing i can smell it for the whole day. This is not a fragrance for someone who likes heavy perfumes like chanel #5, red door by elizabeth arden or really musky smells. I know my husband paid about $80 for this so i deducted a lippie for me not being able to smell it without sniffing my clothes, everything else however is good enough for me to keep in my rotation. A very pretty fragrance.
