Stars N Rockets is so pretty!! Deffinately bold and unique! It's iridescent, which I find so intiguing!! It'spurple, with blue and pink in it, so depending on the light it changes colors. I love it!! Many wouldn't put it as an all over lid color but sometimes I will and use a nice brown in the crease and it looks so pretty! I've made it pretty darn daring when used with black for outer V and crease too!!! But ths is also pretty just using for a crease color. gorgeous color!!!
I LOVE THIS COLOR!!! Well to start off my favorite color is green, basically most any shades except for snot green. So I had to get this. The quality, like any MAC products is great, and the color is gorgeous! it's so pigmented and smooth. Has a great color payoff! The only think I'm sad about it I can't wear it every day with it being so bright. But I do wear it often for how bright it is. I guess it's better I don't wear it every day, if I did I've go through it so fast!
Lip Treatments -eos - Lip Balm Sphere - Summer Fruit
kdenae88 9/23/2011 1:58:00 PM
I heard get things on this lip balm and I am obseesed with chap sticks of any kind. I always need some with me 24/7. So I've tried many. I only have the eos in this kind, so I cannot compare it to another eos brand but for the most part I like it. It is moisturizing but it does feel a bit waxy to me ands takes a while to get the amount on my lips that I want. I personally do not like the smell and taste of this particular flavor, but it's not so bad I can't stand it. I would like to try other flavors and see if I like them. I do find it a bit awkward to use with it being so big, but then I can use it in different ways than just the sticks. I think the packaging is cute, but if I were to stick it in my jean pockets I think it would be very noticable to others and myself. I like the price for the qualty! All in all, I do like this product, it does not beat my favorite Burts bees, but it is a good alternative. I will buy this again.
Eye Shadow -Victoria's Secret - Beauty Rush Wet/Dry Shadow
kdenae88 9/7/2011 2:37:00 PM
I have 4 of these shades. I really like them!! I find they are blendable and the pigmentation is okay, but I do find hat I have to apply a lot to get them to really slow much color. I've never applied it wet but using it dry works fine! I like the colors they come in but I do find them somewhat generic. I see nothing unique about them, but they are pretty. All in all I do like this product!.
Fragrances -Victoria's Secret - Sexy Little Things Noir
kdenae88 9/7/2011 2:27:00 PM
I really like this perfume!! Itsmells great and lasts a reasonable amount of time. I think the bottle is so cute but it may need improvement. both my sister and I have this and I've had no problems from it, but my sisters pump stopped working. When you get this it comes with a cap and the pump seperately. She threw her cap away and so she was going to throw the 3/4 full bottle away when her pump stopped working but I gave her my cap so she doesn't waste all that money and can use it. She's lucky I kept the cap! I just hope my pump doesn't stop working now!! Could be her use of the pump though..I don't know why but the pump on all but 4 of her perfumes have stopped spraying.. be easy on them. haha
I used this a few years back in early high school. So my oppinion could chane since I I know how to apply make up now, when back then I knew very little. If I ever try this again and my thoughts change I will update my review. I did like the pakaging and thought the texture of the foundation was unique! I have oily skin so I did like the matte finish it gave and just liked the look in general. But I did notice that around noon for lunch (thats the only restroom break I took) my face was starting to get oily. And by the time I got home after band practice it was pretty much comepletely gone. I would have understood if my face was sweating but even in the fall with the cool weather and I didn't sweat it was off. So it did not last long. I did not use primer back then, so now if I tried it I could like i more..this is just my thoughts of it from then...
I don't have bad eyebrows, they stay in place pretty well, I never really have a problem with them but sometimes I'll use this and it helps define the sape of my eyebrows and keep the hairs in place. Then if doesn't really feel like I'm wearing product on my brows. I like them to feel natural.Also looks natural and doesn't look like I have jell on my brows. I love this for other peoples brows. I do peoples make up for special occasions and I love this for those who have unruly eyebrows and I like using this after I feel them in for those who don't have prominant eyebrows. Takes a little bit to dry but it works!!
Eyeliner -MAC - Penultimate Eye Liner - Rapidblack
kdenae88 8/25/2011 10:51:00 AM
I really like this!!! I find it a little harder to apply than gel liner, but I do like it!! I love the fact that its a pen, it makes for better precision and so much easier to apply than the normal liquid liner application. It dries quickly and stays put!! I really like this!!
I have this in blackout, and I love it! I'm falfway through my second eye pencil of this. I am trying to decide if I want o keep purchasing this or try something new? I have no major complaints on this, I just wander if I can ever find something better? Any way..This is a great product! Goes on smooth, and it's easy to smudge to get the look you want with the little smudger tool is has but it doesn't smudge much through wear. I do notice it fades a little with time, as I am not one to look at my make up throught the day, I do it and don't touch it up at all. And by the time I get home I notice its faded. But for the most part I really like it!
Crème -Merle Norman - Luxiva Ultra Foundation with HC-12
kdenae88 8/25/2011 10:31:00 AM
I got this foundation a few years back in a small sample size from my aunt. I loved it! So when I used up that I got the normal size. I love the thickness of the foundation, and it lasts a while. Although I did have to use concealer.Course I was having trouble with my face breaking out then, and now I don't but I notice I no longer have to use concealer with a medium coverage foundation, so I would call this light coverage. If I happened to sweat that day it did seam to come off easily. I do not like the dewy finish of this. I did like it, but more recently I've tried other foundations with a matte finish that I like more as I do have oily skin and it keeps my skin looking less shiney. Not to say this made more oil but the dewey-ness did make my face look shiney so I'd say it would work great for those with dry skin. So it's not my favorite any more after learning what kind of make up is best for my particular skin, but all in all I would say this is a good product! If I did not have a problem with it making me look shiney I would keep using it.
I don't have a big problem with dark circles under my eyes, but I do work 6pm-6am, so I figured I'd buy it for when I do get them and I find myself wearing it just to make my eyes look brighter any way. It deffinately conceals and has a matte finish. It works well!! My only complain is the packaging. I like the roller ball but I find that no matter how lightly I try to put it on, more comes out than what I need. And I really have to blend. I may need the one for darker skin tones, as I get pretty tan in the summer, but the one is almost too light that I have to put foundation over itwhere it ends so it blends in and it looks good then. Also wish there were more colors, but the darker skin tones could work for me. All in all, good product!
Makeup Brushes -Coastal Scents - Destiny Precision Angled Liner Brush
kdenae88 8/23/2011 11:07:00 AM
I too am surprised people said this hurts. It's dshort and dense but that is needed for precision. I really like this brush! I've only had it about a month but it's the only brush I'll use for gel liner. It is comfortable since it's bent it's easier to get in right neer the lashes and I find it ery early to make the wing. It's only $2.00 so I will deff keep purchasing this brush!!!
I use this brush without a doubt every single day that I apply make up! Which is most days. It is not too big or too small, and really packs on the makeup on your lid really well! You don't have t work as much to get your eyelids very bright and opaque with eye shadow. Like all MAC brushes it's made well, great durability and quility! No fraying or shedding.
This was one of my first brushes from MAC and it's an essential!! I use it most every day!! I Don't really like to use it as a crease brush but I do like to use use for the outer V, or if I'm winginging my eyeshaddow out a bit. I also use it for my inner tear duct, and also for applying shaddow like liner on my lower eyelid. It's built great! There is is no fraying or shedding, it's great!
I got thisfor an actual look I was going for that I needed this coor for. And normally I would not buy it, but now I love it!! It worked perfectly for what I got it for but it's now one of my favorite eye shadows. It's great to just add a little bit of shimmer on your lid, but also works great as a under your brow highlighter or just to put shome shimmer on the inner corners of your eyes! This will be one I'll keep using for years to come!!
