Concealers -Bobbi Brown - Eye Brightener [DISCONTINUED]
momarks 3/26/2007 4:14:00 PM
Okay, I'm not really sure why this product is in existence. I stopped by the BB counter and the MA convinced me to try this. I looked in the mirror after it was applied, and saw absolutely no difference at all. "Well", the SA went on to say "it's not really meant for people who have undereye cirlces". I wasn't insulted or anything, because I've had circles since high school. My question is, why would you need this product if you DON'T have circles? I'm a huge BB fan, but I just don't get this one. It's the first BB product she's come out with that makes no sense to me. and $32.00? Give me a break. This is just to sheer to warrant that kind of price tag. I love you Bobbi, I just hate this product.
Well, I am really falling in love with the American Beauty line of skincare and makeup! The Beauty Boost is no exception- it is fantastic. It has a chemical exfoliant that leaves my skin radiant and smooth come morning. It has a light fragrance that I love, it just smells clean and luxurious.lippies off for the price, though: 28.00 is kinda pricey, so buy it on sale.
Palettes -mark - Flip For It MILAN Spring Color Kit

I am VERY pleasently surprised with this compact. The eyeshadows are finely milled with no chunky glitter peices in them (My major gripe with Mark shadows) and the blush has the slightest bit of shimmer, not enough to bother me, a matte freak. The e/s colors are gorgeous neutrals that I can't imagine looking bad on anyone. The blush is pretty bronzey, but it somehow manages to look good on my nc 20 skin. The lip colors are wonderful and will work for anybody. Three of the lippies tend to be on the warm side, but not to worry, there is a purplish-berry color that can cool them right down.This kit is definitely recommended!
Liquid -American Beauty - Perfectly Even Natural Finish Foundation
momarks 3/5/2007 7:08:00 PM
I bought this in fair-cool and it is a great match for my NC-20 skin. The texture is a dream, this just melts into my skin and makes it perfect without looking makeup-y. Anyone that thinks they need to pay upwards of $60.00 for a Chanel foundation definitely needs to check this out. At 16.50 (and you can often find it on sale), Perfectly Even is perfectly on par with Chanel, Prescriptives and Estee Lauder. The finish lasts all day and didn't leave me neither too oily or dry. Just perfect!
I never thought I would be this impressed with a Maybelline foundation. This product has the same concept as the CG Outlast foudation, but the CG version broke me out badly.Still, I wanted to give Superstay a try. I bought Light 1, the lightest shade (nc20) and it's a great match. This goes on silky, the two formulas blend well together on the skin. The coverage is medium, and the finish is more satiny than matte, a plus for me with normal to dry skin.Normal to dry skins will want to give this a try
Well, I normally love all of Cat's products, but this sorely disappoints. this is supposed to be the color of your lips but better, but I'm not sure who's lips they're talking about. This is just an iridescent taupey-gold color. I tried to wear it, but it jsut wasn't me. To quote Dorothy Zbornak from Golden Girls, "I looked like the mother of a Solid Gold dancer". I am exchanging this with hopes of having better luck with the Black Cherry gloss.
Palettes -Cat Cosmetics - The Six Appeal Customizable Kit
momarks 5/26/2005 5:59:00 PM
I got this palette about 3 weeks ago and I have used it exclusively since then. First, let me tell you which refills I got: Tabby, cats creme and catastrophic eyeshadows,(all are awesome on my brown eyes), whiskers blush, light concealer, and universal beige powder. I've never had a palette like this where I used every color. It's so convenient, and I love the colors so much, I just don't want or need to go digging through all my other makeup to find what I need. The palette is small, slim and very portable. As for the products themselves, they are truly top-notch, and they are fairly large sizes. 72.00 May seem steep, but it's sooooo worth it when you can choose what you want and have everything in a neat palette. I love CAT!!!!
I was so excited to hear this product was coming out, because I really wanted to try a primer with my foudation.The Colors of this foundation are excellent, and the foundation itself has a great texture and great blendability. However, everytime I used the primer, I broke out. Not just zits, but cysts.Boo. Now Im afraid to use any kind of primer.
Lip Gloss -American Beauty - Fabulous Feel Liquid Lip Color in Plush Rose (03)

I also got this color as a sample. The color is a beautiful neutral rose and the coverage is full, this is not a sheer gloss. This product would have received a better rating, however the scent of this gloss is the same putrid smell as the Estee Lauder glosses (EL owns American Beauty). Becaause of this , I will not be purchasing.
Eye Shadow -Revlon - Illuminance Creme Shadow Quad - Not Just Nudes

Well, I have tried to use this product several times, hoping it would work for me because the colors in this kit are so pretty. I just could not get the formula to work for me, even with an e/s base applied underneath. This stuff slides everywhere and creases like crazy on me. I've tried other brands of creme shadow that work great for me like Clinique, Benefit and Merle Norman. Might want to invest in those instead of this product.
I really wanted to like this color, it's so pretty in the pan, but I have to agree with Topnote on this one. No pigment,with chunks of glitter that just flake off and land under my eye. Milani's e/s are great,I'm a huge fan, but this one just didn't do it for me. I'm a stay at home mom, not a solid gold dancer.
I agree with the other reviews on this product and color. Milani e/s are superb quality (think MAC) and they're dirt cheap. Java bean is a beautiful taupey-brown with bronze shimmer. I'm very pale but I have dk brn hair and eyes and this looks great as a wash on the lid.
I really really wanted to like this blush.When I found it at Walgreens, it was 3 bucks,so I snapped it up because it had raves on MUA. The color is gorgeous in the pan, but unfortunately, it's just way too shimmery/glittery on my skin. I may try it again when I'm in my sister's wedding in Vegas next month.
I really love this eyeshadow!! The cool-toned brown really offsets my true brown eyes. I usually wear this with MAC shroom (another HG of mine) for everyday. The quality is every bit that of MAC's. A definite winner!!!
Lip Gloss -Bobbi Brown - Shimmer Lip Gloss - Kir Sugar

The SA put this l/g on my sister when she was getting a makeover and I liked it so well I bought a tube as well. I agree with the poster below that this is an elegant plum with a touch of brown that shines beautifully. I'm a PPP with dark hair and eyes, my sister is blond w/blue eyes and this color looked great on both of us.
