This lipstick is very bright, neon and PINK!! it's matte and very creamy and opaque. if you're not into the bold lip this lipstick is not for you. Candy Yum Yum will get you noticed by everyone! it's just that kind of beautiful brightness.
This PP is a pretty medium brown. I like using this one for brown smokey looks. On me they do crease when it's warmer out. during cooler months they do not. Shadows go on smoothly and stay put.
I have a few Paint Pots, Painterly being my favorite. It's kind of like a pale pink color. it's looks nice alone as shadow and works nice as a base/primer but beware if you have oily lids this may crease or during the warmer months as well. I use Paint Pots mostly during cooler dryer months due to this. Shadows seem to glide nicely and stick as well.
Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel
mellypmakeup 10/2/2012 11:52:00 AM
This moisturizer is ok. I didn't see how dramatically different it was but it was decent. It didn't give me the heavy hydration that I thought it was going to give which is what I wanted. (I use Retin A which is very drying to the skin) I added Glycerin to it and that made all the difference. Now it's like a gel but also moisturizes my skin very well. I would buy this again because during the warmer months the original formula is nice and I like the bottle and the light feel it gives even with the glycerin added it's not heavy feeling. But during the colder months I'll add the glycerin. It now gives me exactly what I want.
This little palette is awesome! You get foundation, concealer, color corrector and setting powder in a nice sleek compact with a nice size mirror. The foundation is pretty good. very little gets you good coverage. same thing goes for the concealer. Neither of them are drying to the skin either.
Treatments (Eye) -Bobbi Brown - Hydrating Eye Cream

I like the fact that this cream is nice and thick. It definately hydrates the under eye area. Great for dry skin and cold months.
Highlighters -Laura Geller - Baked Highlighter in French Vanilla

This Highlight isn't just a highlighter it's also a concealer! I love this stuff!!! I use it under my eyes and on my cheek bones. I sometiems use it alone as a concealer under my eyes sometimes I add concealer then this on top. Depending on my mood and how tired I feel I look.. But it's really good all on it's own. It's doesn't shimmer or sparkle like most highlighters but what it's does is just so much more amazing than the others I've tried. It literally brightens the areas you use in on.
This product is genius! It took me some time to actually purchase this powder due to lack of convincing.. Balance N Brighten is the first powder foundation I have ever experienced that didn't need some sort of liquid before or after (primer/setting spray) to make it look natural/clean and none powdery. BNB is AMAZING! I love it!
Foundations -Tarte - Amazonian Clay 12-hour Full-Coverage Foundation SPF 15
mellypmakeup 9/27/2012 11:55:00 AM
I’d like to start off by saying this foundation is in NO way for all skin types. In contrary to the QVC host who said this foundations helps “lock in moisture” for those with dry skin. This is completely untrue. This foundation isn’t bad. It’s geared more towards the person with oily skin. I should have realized that with the title Amazonian Clay alone… (Think of a clay mask… what does it do? It removes oil from the skin… This is exactly what this product does) If you have dry skin or dry patches this foundation will only accentuate those problems.. I have combination skin. This product will work well for me during the summer months… During the colder months it’s not so great on its own. I’ve had to use help from face scrubs, natural oils and Glycerin which sounds like a lot of help but I really wanted to give this foundation a chance and understand why people like it so much.. After all the skin hydrating methods I used I’d like to say that yes, this is a nice foundation. It gives you a natural healthy looking skin tone. You don’t look made up at all. But again, this foundation works well for those who have oily skin.
My absolute favorite perfume EVER!!! It's a very clean violet/floral scent. It's simply amazing!
Saddle is a really nice contouring shadow. Very smooth and easy to work with.
A very pretty brown with red undertone. Great for deepening the crease, defining the upper lashline and smoking the lower lashline. This shadow is a great substitute for black if you're looking for something softer.
Eyes -Unlisted Brand - Natural Angel-Lash Extender
mellypmakeup 2/13/2012 10:43:00 AM
Natural Angel-Lash Extender Lashes with Wings are natural loose fibers in a bottle (just like Talika but a fraction of the cost!) I purchased mine at Duane Reade for $9.99. Instuctions advise you to add a coat of your favorite mascara then wiggle these bad boys in while your lashes are still damp (so they can adhere) then lock the fibers in with another coat of mascara.. I suggest do one eye at a time... You don't often get clumping but it is possible so have a lash comb on stand by.. I like to do multiple appliations for a more dramatic effect. I would definitley buy this product again, I'm giving this product 3 lippies because I feel i haven't used it to the best of it's potential and until I master using the fibers and get it's full effect it's not a perfect product just yet because it does take work to understand it and to use it properly.
This eye pencil is extremely creammy and pigmented. yes if put onthe water line and lower lash line it smears/travels BUT it's great for the upper lashline and smudging for a smokey softer look. This is how I use it instead of as an eyeliner for my waterline...
I really liked this foundation. It was light on the skin, not mask like at all. it covers very well. Very buildable and blends easily. It seems runny in the bottle but don't be fooled by that. It's a really good product.
