Palettes -Urban Decay - Book of Shadows [DISCONTINUED]
makeupcat 6/5/2009 12:32:00 PM
Mine was very hard to open at first. After finally getting the shadows out the first time, I just gently pulled on the opening of the cover until it stretched a bit. I did this several times and now they come out much easier. Fabulous shades and color payoff. I love it!
After trying this foundation for a week in daily 100 degree weather, I threw out what was left of my Jane Iredale and BE foundation. This is the best mineral foundation ever!! It looked completely natural and after my 10 hour work day, it still looked great with no touch ups. The finish is dewy, but not shiny and does not accent my pores and fine lines like BE did. I never found a good color match with Jane Iredale. I use Light/Med Beige and it's almost perfect. I also ordered tha cashmere untinted base and I can mix it to get the exacte shade I need. If I want a more glowing finish, I top it with Flawless finish powder in sheer. I am so happy with this foundation. Dare I call it HG?
Loose Powders -Lumiere - Silk Radiance - Bare Beauty

Bare beauty is the exact natural blush in my skin. I wear Cashmere Light/Med Beige and Bare Beauty looks great on me. It also goes on very smoothly. I love it!
Moisturizers -Dr. Denese - Wrinkle Defense Day Cream SPF 30
makeupcat 5/2/2008 7:51:00 PM
Maybe the colors vary in this product, because I'm fair skinned, used an ample amount and this just sunk right into my skin like nothing I've ever used before. It covered well and I ended up using very little foundation. I really could have used a little concealor and had pretty much flawless skin. I've worn it all day and it still looks great. I applied a little more on my nose before going out to eat and it blended flawlessly. I though I would be disappointed after reading all the great reviews, but I have to say I agree. This moisturizer/sunscreen marvel is the best product I've come across in a long time!
Sunscreen -Peter Thomas Roth - Instant Mineral SPF 30

I love this. I like the idea that I can reapply my sunscreen during the day without messing up my makeup. The directions of how to close it are on the back of the container. I am thrilled to know that the bottom comes off, that means it's refillable. I will put my regular loose powder in it when empty. Skin-Etc.com has this for 21.98 and shipping is only 5.00. The discount shows up after you put it into the shopping cart (same with all their products) I will continue to buy it. Wish there was more in the container that't why I gave it a 4.
Conditioner -Sunsilk - Blonde Bombshell Colour Boost

I really like this. It's been 4 weeks since my last highlighting and I have used Sunsilk 2 times a week and my hair still looks great. By now my hair usually looks dull. I think I've found my secret to maintaning highlights. I gave it a 4 because the tube does not last me very long. My hair is below my shoulders so I have to use alot of product. Good thing it's cheap. It does not dry out your hair like other products do.
This is the perfect summer blush. Pinky/Peach and last all day. My came a little melted from Sephora. I put it in the fridge for an hour or two and it was perfectly fine. Love it.
This actually works. I have completely switched to Isomers products now.. This was part of the 10 piece try me kit ($59.00) All the products are great, but I attribute this product to fading the lines on my forhead and around the eyes. I think I am throwing all my other skin products out.
What a girly fun color. Every time I wear this it makes me smile. To me it is the perfect med. pink.
I know I'm in the minority, but although this looked great going on, at the end of the day, I had really bad flaking under my eyes. I was shocked, maybe it's due to the eyecream I use, but I don't have this problem with Voluminous. For the money, I really definately stick with Loreal
I ordered this sight unseen based on the reviews on MUA. When I opened the tube, I thought I made a big mistake. This looked too close to Fresh Morrocan which just looks wrong on me. I have light yellow based skin with alot of pink in my cheeks. I put it on and it was PERFECT. It somehow looks very natural and a good pinky-red daytime color. As with all Mac lipsticks the texture is great. I love it.
I can't believe I was lucky enough to find a perfect foundation and an exact color match by simply reading the reviews on MUA!!! I bought I40 and it is the same exact color as my skin. It simply just disappears like no other I've ever used. I'm 43 and now have a little more to cover than I used to (sigh). But this does the trick while looking like I have just absolutely flawless skin! I have fair skin with a slight yellow/olive tone but also have alot of pink in my cheeks. This looks great and doesn't settle in the little lines I have under my eyes now. I love it and will buy it again and again.
Blush -Milani - Smooth Finish - Mango Tango [DISCONTINUED]

This blush is fabulous. Mango Tango is everything I was hoping Stila Gerbera would be, but wasn't. It gives me such a pretty glow. It is the most beautiful bright peachy-pink. I am so glad I bought this. I have been buying alot of Milani lately. If you don't you are missing out!
I have been searching for a product that would make a difference for my eyes. I have finally found it. Ran across Isomers while channel surfing the other night and I am glad I did. In just 3 days my eyes already look better. At the end of the day, my dry lines under my eyes looked horrible and nothing helped. This serum hydrates all day, diminishes puffiness and makes lines much less noticeable, I now want to try One for Face. This is really an excellent product.
This stuff is the worst. I tried both the face laser and the the body liquid laser. The face lazer did remove most of the hair on my upper lip (not all). I tried the liquid laser on my bikini line. I left it on for the full 10 mins. and it did absolutely nothing. But the worst thing is the face laser after removing began stinging very badly. I applied the post laser soothing cream and then 2 applications of hydrocortizone. My upper lip began to swell and felt kind of numb. 1 hour later and it was still swelling. I guess I had an allergic reation or something. But this stuff is awful. Please be careful
