i have owned this for a long time and finally started using it. on my fair skin it comes out a bright orangey-red with orange glitter. there is nothing rasberry about it on me. i luv ruby pumps but this is lighter and brighter on me and i get compliments when i wear it. i tried on "ahoy" and thats the one that's rasberry-red and gorgeous esp for fair, cool toned skin.
Polishes -Sally Hansen - Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in Plum Power
mirrorgirlmirrorgirls 5/2/2012 11:58:00 AM
i bought 3 of these with the new black lid and they apply easily in 2 fast drying, nonstreaky coats. its not the quality i dont like but this color...it looks like a murky, dull, kinda dark cool toned purply plum. what i did to bring it to life was; use 1 coat of this, then a heavy coat of wet n wild's sparked..a pinkish-plummy blingy glitter over it and a 2nd coat of plum power. i still dont think it looks that great so wont buy it again.
Polishes -Sally Hansen - Xtreme Wear - Fushia Power
mirrorgirlmirrorgirls 4/28/2012 5:01:00 PM
i had my friend pick one up for me without seeing the color in person. i was expecting a fushia but when it was brought home to me i was disgusted and disappointed. its a strait on hot pink cream. i hate hot pink and never use creams. IMO if you want a fun, brite fushia check out posh plum in this line..that is a fushia. since i didnt open it up gonna return for crushed....the coral shimmery 1 in this based on the reviews here.
Treatments (Eye) -RoC - Retinol Correxion Sensitive Eye Cream
mirrorgirlmirrorgirls 12/23/2011 2:39:00 AM
its been 10 years since i have used an eye cream until i found this. i was just using my regular moisturizer cuz most eye creams these days are lifting, titing, irritating, drying and make fine lines look like deep creases. this one glides on smoothly, gets rid of puffy eyes and diminishes lines rather than making them worse plus didnt irritate or sting my very sensitive skin so for me its a find. if u find this one not moist enuf than try using a plain oil based one 2 apply over it. i think this one is very nice. reason got an eyecream was cuz my regular facial misturizer was starting to make my eyes puffy and stingy. for me its very nice. the one thats not for sensitive skin contains copper and zinc whic are known skin irritants so beware.
not into red but this one on me came out a very bright coral with tons of glitter. its more of a coral-pumpkin. the glitter has chunks of silver, dark red and orange. the finished color glows in any light or time of day or nite. i love this one. it does take 3 coats to get it opaque and a topcoat. drying time is fast and application is easy. i found no problem with grainy nails nor chipping. this shade is so fun, festive and upbeat. it is hard to remove and needs a pure acetone np remover but no big deal. well buy this headturner again.
i was disappointed with this color. i was expecting a brite, medium toned shimmery bluish,peacock teal but its much darker with 0 shimmer and since i have so many dark shades this was a bigger bummer. sometimes it looks green, blue, peacock, denim or teal but the fact remains that its quite dark no matter what and in IMO nothing special. i would not repurchase cuz there are so many other beautiful, brighter, funner chg teals, turquoises and blues with visible hi shimmer or better yet built in glitter.
Top/Base Coats -Wet 'n' Wild - Clear Nail Protector
mirrorgirlmirrorgirls 9/15/2010 12:08:00 PM
I needed a basecoat to protect my nails from breaking and staining from dark and bright polish or to to use alone again for breakage problems. It dries quickly, keeps the nails from breaking but the smell is so strong and bad it wont go away unless i use polish over it but i still use it plain to keep them protected which it does so thats a small price to pay for 99 cents. I first bought Sinful basecoat which wasnt clear, took forevever to dry, 4 times more expensive, no shine used alone and when i did use polish on top it took half the polish off.
Lipstick -Cover Girl - Continuous Color in Classic Red-new formula
mirrorgirlmirrorgirls 5/30/2010 1:32:00 AM
I bought this on a coupon and have mixed feelings bout it. As the other viewers stated it isn't a red but it's not a pinky majenta either. It's pretty but leans more towards a deep rasberry reddish tone but since its a cream rather than a shimmer it goes on flat, dry and i would not buy again. If you want a CG red that is nice check out #575 Really Red...neutral with cool tones and a glamour girl look.
This is one of the new Sinful shades. Its a bright, neon, medium to deep turquise blue and gorgeous. If you like neon brights and love blue you cant go wrong with it for $1.99.
Hate to wreck a 5 lippie rating but this doesn't work for me..i'm a fair, cool toned brunette with dyed reddish brown hair and rosey lips and this shade came out a dull, boring, pinky, murky color on me. IMO it might look becoming on somebody with light lips.
I obtained some samples of this..one in cream form and another in the lotion version. Everybody keeps using techincal terms like KP, SK, Itcyosis etc that mean nothing to me. What i suffer from in laymens terms..thin skinned, wrinkley, crinkley skin on my arms and not one cream or lotion has helped. Finally talked to a rep from this co. and was told its good for this problem as well. I have used the lotion samples for 2 days and the lines are less visible and my arms feel soft. My super sensitive skin didnt break out in an allergic reaction either. So far i would say this is working out very well and hopefully by summer i can wear some short sleeved tops. Bottom line...not just for KP but for wrinkely arm or body skin. It glides on without any pull and tug and has the right amount of moisture in it...not greasy nor runny.
I dye my dark brown hair scarlett but my eyebrows are practically black with some greys. This pencil glides on easily and to my surprize covers greys. I had to take off 1 lippie for the limited color selection. Mink Brown is jet black, Dark Brown is practically black, Bronze Brown is orangey and Taupe is a nice light-med neutral but cannot be used on very dark brows by itself. I have to use Dark Brown ist and then Taupe.
this is a one of kind shade..one me it comes out a very pretty neutral-cool toned plum with a hint of purple and cherry and lights up my face. This is not for the faint of heart...its a bit dark but not to the extreme of being goth. i dont like mauves cuz they are to dull for my coloring so if your into some flash and class check this one out.
Lotions/ Creams -Eucerin - Original Moisturizing Lotion
mirrorgirlmirrorgirls 2/20/2010 5:56:00 AM
No matter what fragrance free body lotion i try i always come back to this one. I cannot believe some of the bad reviews but if you have dry, sensitive, allergy prone skin like me that reacts to everything you can't beat this. It's heavy, greasy (a dry skin bod lotion must be) but it can take any rash, hive, stinging, burning out of the skin and make it feel soothed, cured, calmed and healed. Plus it's great for the hands, fantastic for removing makeup before washing the face and even taming eyebrows. It is a multipurpose lotion. IMO if your skin is extremely sensitive and allergy prone this is a must. I don't recommend using it on the face cuz it can cause millia and doesnt spread easily but just lays there in splotches...use strictly for the body.
Polishes -Sinful - Sinful Professionals in #02 (Black on Black)
mirrorgirlmirrorgirls 2/8/2010 8:56:00 AM
I have tried various blacks and this by far is my favorite...no off shading of gray or worse yet brown. It's the shiniest np i have ever used which is rare. It goes on opaque and looks so vampy, sexy all by itself. If i add Sinful's Pearl Harbour Glitter i get a slight blue hint of glitter. Very cool worn either way or with your choice of glitter. If you want to stand out in a crowd and love black give this one a try.
