This color, imo, is dull and boring. It looks bronze in the tube, but on me it looks frosty, muddy and blah. It's also moderately dry. Because of the price and the reputation of Stila, I expected better.
Lip Gloss -L'Oreal - Color Juice - Strawberry Smoothie

This color is a beige-peach baby pink with a lot of shimmer. It looks great with soft makeup or a smokey eye.
This was on sale for $5, so I hope it's not being discontinued, because I'm in love with this scent. It's warm, woodsy, and it's vanilla tone is more reminiscent of the plant than a baked food. I tried this on at night time and I could still smell a residue on my wrist the following morning, so there is lasting power.
Lip Gloss -L'Oreal - ColorJuice Lipgloss in Peaches N Creme
medeia13 1/4/2005 8:05:00 AM
I usually wear shimmery peach glosses, but this non-shimmer gloss is lovely. It's a soft and innocent color. Great texture, glossy, and semi-sticky like the other Colourjuices.
I've been looking for this color forever. I've been looking for a pink-purple that's not too cool-toned, has no lavendar/blue tones, and doesn't wash me out, and this is it. Grape Soda is a pink-purple that's pretty and perks up my whole face. I hope this isn't a limited edition item and that I can repurchase it if I run out.
This left my hair smooth and soft. I didn't find that I had to wash my hair more than normal to get it out, as I have to do with other treatments.
This palette is great, except for the lipstick, which looks like a muddy brown. But I'm in love with the eye shadows, the bronze and champagne ones, which are so pretty and shimmery when worn together. The blush/bronzer is nice, but a little too dark, so I have to use a light hand or my face will look dirty.
Palettes -Too Faced - Quickie Chronicles - The Cupcake

This palette isn't as nice as The Party Girl. The blush is a pale pink and looked overly frosty and weird on me. I'm not going to use the grey eye shadow, the darkest shade, but there's a pinkish taupe and a beige eye shadow that I'm pleased with. The lipglosses come in four shades of pink that all work for me. The packaging of these palettes is adorable, albeit no mirror, and I look forward to seeing more Too Faced palettes in Sephora.
Palettes -Too Faced - The Quickie Chronicles- Party Girl
medeia13 1/4/2005 7:43:00 AM
The best part of this palette is the blush. It's a gorgeous, bright pink that's not garish; it melts into my skin and makes me glow. I don't really like the plum/purple eye shadow, since I don't wear that color on my eyes, but the beige eye shadow on the lid and the shimmery pink eye shadow in the crease is a great combination for me. The lip glosses are nice and creamy, but its the blush that's the biggest hit for me.
I bought the holiday set and I really like it. Cinnamon is the most pigmented and gives a berry tint, passion is a sheer red, and tangerine is the palest and shows up as clear. They all smell/taste great.
Lip Gloss -Neutrogena - MoistureShine LipGloss in "Sweet Nothing"

A great clear gloss. It's not too sticky and I prefer wands, since pot glosses require fingers or brushes and squeeze tubes can leak.
Blush -Almay - Nearly Naked Touch-Pad Liquid Blush in Peach Au Natural
medeia13 12/20/2004 10:15:00 AM
Peach Au Natural doesn't show up on my skin if I'm wearing foundation under it, but the color only pops out on clean skin. So on days that I'm in a rush and can't wear foundation or powder, this is fine, otherwise it looks like I'm wearing nothing. A nice, peach color, but it's too sheer. I won't purchase this again.
This looks boring and muddy in the pan, but it looks like a healthy, semi-matte pink on the cheeks.
Mascara -Physicians Formula - Lash in a Tube Cream Mascara
medeia13 12/20/2004 10:01:00 AM
This was clumpy and dried out my lashes. It was hard to get off at the end of the day and I used up several cotton pads of eye makeup remover until my lashes were clean.
Fragrances -Sephora - Sephora Girls Sweet Almond Eau de Toilette
medeia13 12/20/2004 9:55:00 AM
This is the weakest of the Sephora Girls fragrance line. With the other ones, a few sprays last awhile, but this seems to disappear quickly. It also smells sweet, but isn't reminiscent of almonds.
