Dries quick, the formula is nice & smooth. Love the colour ... it's a sheer frosty white that let's your natural nail color shine through. Only needed 1 coat and it seems to be holding up well.
Polishes -Laura Mercier - nail lacquer in Nude Peach

The formula seems nice. Goes on fairly smooth but the color...just doesn't work for me ... it's too peachy. Looks like my nails are jaundice.
I bought a kit in a weak moment and I'm so glad I did (although there were some dogs in the kit). This does have a wet-ish feel. The color is stunning...the brush is cheap that came with it but the blush is actually first class...probably not the best for a humid climate..and be careful on how much you apply. I would definately repurchase. Big size too!
Lip Gloss -Signature Club A - Long Lasting Daily Perma Glaze Lip Wand

Oh my gosh...I love this stuff...I bought a kit just to get a laugh and to get it out of my system..but there where actually some (emphasize some) good products. This lasts a long time...gives you a shimmery pink, peach glow on the lips...you can apply it heavy or light ... I've been wearing it alone..but it's awesome over lipstick too...try it if you can get it in a cheap kit..just be prepared to give half of the other stuff to your g'ma....
Eye Shadow -Paula's Choice - Soft Matte Eyeshadow in Graphite
jerry2alice 7/29/2006 12:19:00 AM
Awesome Blue-black color...perfect to use as eyeliner...for those of us with oily lids...stays put and doesn't sprinkle down to the undereye area. Lasts forever.
The absolute best concealor for under eye circles ever!! Especially if you are starting to get a few wrinkles. Applies thin but covers like a dream...don't let the MK brand scare you..there are a few jewels and this is one!
Yipes! This is for showgirls only...super thick, super heavy coverage. I guess this would be good for someone with scars or birthmarks..that doesn't mind a heavy look. I wouldn't say total crap but not for everyday, normal people. Weird 'halloween makeup smell' too.
Moisturizers -Signature Club A - advanced formula 5 essentials creme
jerry2alice 7/29/2006 12:06:00 AM
I can't believe it...finally a product that lightly provides moisture and softness to my freaky oily, flaky, sensitive skin. It has a light fragrance but other than that it's almost perfect. I can't believe how much I like it...I always used to laugh at this brand...I guess I'll learn to keep an open mind. HG.
Cleansers -Signature Club A - Vanilla meltdown makeup remover
jerry2alice 7/29/2006 12:02:00 AM
I love this cleanser. It removes make-up and leaves your skin feeling ultra soft...no breakouts...(but I do use an oil-free eye makeup remover for my eyes) I can't believe how much I like this! Buy it in a 'kit' it's cheaper and you'll get a kick out of either how good or crappy the other products are ... it's just the way this line is!
Concealers -Mally Beauty - Cancellation Concealer 3-piece system
jerry2alice 12/7/2005 11:47:00 PM
Wow! I don't often branch out into unfamiliar brands. I'm totally shocked at the superior quality of this Mally concealor -- it was kind of a QVC impulse buy. I'm so glad I ordered it! Very easy to blend, stays all day, and provides nice coverage. The fine,soft setting powder makes the under eye area very natural looking.
I'm so suprised about this mascara. It is excellent! I have very oily lids and have a difficult time with raccoon eyes. This mascara stayed on from 7am til 10pm. No more paula's choice mascara for me -- I found a better one in believe it or not MK!!
Yuck - It did the opposite of what it was supposed to do. When dabbing it on the texture kind of pulls the skin. Does nothing to help w/ oily lids and nothing for making the colors more vivid...ladies this is a definate skip.
Very pretty color -- I use as a highlighter not too over the top in color or shimmer. Very wearable and cheap --- :)
This is so cool!!! I got it off of ebay for $15. Wanted to buy it from MK but the only way to get it is buy $400 worth of products (ridiculous). But if you have the opportunity get it...I know a lot of people think MK is cheap crap but this is an awesome, travel bag. Not just the usual hanging bag -- I say check it out!
Skincare - Body -Mary Kay - Visibly Fit Body Lotion
jerry2alice 5/23/2004 2:51:00 PM
This is a joke. EXPENSIVE, not very moisturizing, and HEAVILY scented. It reminded me of a cheap dollar store lotion. Ladies save your money and get different MK products -- they should pull this product from their line.
