Wow. From the first time I put it on my skin it looked amazing. And this was in harsh Sephora lighting!!! It feels like you are wearing nothing, the texture is light and fluff, liquidy but moussey if that makes any sense!! Color match was perfect for me (Ivory 20) I'm neutral toned and match b/w 15 and 20 on the MAC scale. Price is steep at $38 but I think it's worth it if it makes my face looks great. Sheer coverage but it still evens out skintone wonderfully :) HG!!!!
Coloring: PPP, neutral-cool, dark hazel/brown eyes, brunette This is a gorgeous mermaid blue green teal that supposedly looks like MAC parrot e/s. It's definitely one of my brighter e/s, but beautiful near the lashline (that's all I dare go for now :P)
Eye Shadow -Shu Uemura - ME Silver 945 [DISCONTINUED]

Coloring: PPP, neutral-cool, dark hazel/brown eyes, brunette Whew! One of my first Shu e/s. It's a silvery brown taupe with shimmer. Very pretty on me and I think universally flattering. The pricetag is STEEP though. :)
Coloring: PPP, neutral-cool, dark hazel/brown eyes, brunette Wow this is pretty! A light but bright olivey green that flashes gold. It looks really nice on me and definitely enhances the green in my eyes. :)
Coloring: PPP, neutral-cool, dark hazel/brown eyes, brunette I wanted this to look GREAT on me. It just looks okay. Maybe b/c most pink and red e/s give me a pink eye look? I wish this had less gold chunks in it, b/c I have to PACK it on to get the rose to show up. Makes a GORGEOUS l/g on the lips though! Luckily I got a sample of this so I didn't pay full price. I'll use up the sample I have though.
Lip Gloss -Bath and Body Works - Tutti Dolci - Angel food cake

Coloring: PPP, neutral-cool, dark hazel/brown eyes, brunette Luckily I got this for $2.50 at the BBW semi annual sale. It's a gorgeous but NOT STICKY at all sheer light pink with microshimmers. Plus, the packaging is so adorable and that's what drew me into the product in the first place. The smell is yummy as well :D
Coloring: PPP, neutral-cool, dark hazel/brown eyes, brunette This is a pretty but sheer pink with gold shimmer. When I put it on my lid it shows up gold with a slight hint of pink, so I have to pack it on a tad bit more. Great Milani texture and a great pricetag :D
Coloring: PPP, neutral-cool, dark hazel/brown eyes, brunette What a fantastic knock off of MAC coppering e/s. Great texture, blendability, and pigment. It's a burnt orange copper color that surprisingly looks great on my coloring. And for only $2.99 it's a steal...
Coloring: PPP, neutral-cool, dark hazel/brown eyes, brunette What a gorgeous shade! A slightly silvery light blue green shimmer! I love it as an inner lid shade to really brighten up my eyes! Just beautiful! Too bad they are discontinuing this...
Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel in Blacktrack
orchidaea13 6/3/2005 3:21:00 PM
Coloring: PPP neutral cool toned, dark hazel/brown eyes, brunette When I was going to buy this I was surprised that it only cost 13.50, seeing as BB's was way more expensive. That said, I am in love with this lol. It draws a beautiful line and stays, yet is smudgeable in the beginning which makes it incredibly versatile. Another staple in my makeup. The texture is great too. It's incredibly smooth and brings out my eyecolor
Coloring: PPP neutral cool toned, dark hazel/brown eyes, brunette I LOVE this shadow! I agree with all the other raves below. It is a gorgeous neutral taupey brown silver that has a *hint* of mauve (VERY subtle) that seems to bring out my eye color. I love it and it will be a staple in my makeup
Coloring: PPP, neutral cool,hazel/brown eyes, brunette Vanilla is a gorgeous off white that flashes pink and gold! Needless to say it is sort of a pain to unscrew and screw the lid but I guess I have to get used to it or get a smaller sample jar. At $18.50, it is on the expensive side, but I think one of these will last me forever, and Vanilla is such a versatile shade for me.
Lip Gloss -Clinique - Color Surge Impossibly Glossy in Camisole
orchidaea13 5/24/2005 10:48:00 PM
Coloring: PPP, neutral cool,hazel/brown eyes, brunette Wow. What a great formulation of gloss. I am a total anti-sticky-goopy-overly shiny glossy lips, but this provides slightly glossy lips with a sheen and a formula that is so moisturizing! For $14.50 it's not bad considering how much product you get. Camisole is a beautiful light shimmery pink that IMO has *tiny* flecks of gold and silver shimmer that totally make it unique!
Makeup Brushes -Sephora - Short Handle Crease Eyeshadow Brush
orchidaea13 5/24/2005 10:46:00 PM
For $14 this brush is top notch! I agree with all the other reviewers that it is great quality, densely packed, and allows you to have a lot of control where your crease or outer corner e/s goes. A must have brush IMO
Coloring: PPP, neutral cool,hazel/brown eyes, brunette For $4 I am definitely getting my moneys worth out of this liner. It never tugs on my eyelids and stays fresh throughout the day. It is a gorgeous turuqoisy teal blue that is a dupe for MAC freshwater e/s (except Freshwater is more shimmery) These slim pencils are great!
