I prefer MAC Fluideline over Bobbi Brown Gel liner in general. These tend to smudge on me by days end, where MAC doesn't budge. A lot of reviewers say the opposite, but that's my experience. That said, I will put up with a little smudge for this gorgeous, unique color. I have hazel eyes and it really makes my eyes pop without looking garish. It looks brighter in pot, but goes more soft blackish/green.
Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eyeliner Gel Macroviolet

It's not as dark and intense as other Fluidline colors, but it looks beautiful on hazel eyes.
Hands down, best gel liner out there. Also, the color is a warmer brown, so it looks great on hazel eyes. I prefer MAC Fluidline over Bobbi Brown Gel Liner. BB tend to smudge on my lower lashline.
Love this mascara! I use both options depending on if I want drama or natural. My search for a great mascara is finally over.
Didn't do much for me. I couldn't justify keeping it when I have Seashell which looks similiar but has more color payoff. To me, Constellation is a clear gloss with flecks. That's it.
Love this Glossimer. Perfect pink with shimmer. You can use this alone or over any lipstick. I love that it is thicker than other Glossimers. It stays on longer and doesn't feel wet or sticky.
Lip Gloss -Chanel - Glossimer - Pensee (Summer 2011)

Gorgeous color, if only it looked like what you see in the tube on the lips. Very little color payoff; just left a glossy orange tint to my lips. Not unique enough to keep. Chanel make-up artist agreed.
Gorgeous color. Use with lipliner underneath and apply lightly. So unique!
Classic Glossimer. Been around for many years. As others have stated; a pale pink color with a little peach undertone and slight shimmer. It is my 'go to' color when I go to gym or don't want full face make-up. It has a thicker consistancy than other Glossimers because of the shimmer. The older colors are thicker and not as wet as newer ones. They keep discontinuing the older Glossimers. Hope this one stays. The pinker version is Paillates.
I've been using Blizzard on and off for 11 years. It is a very pigmented Glossimer (newer colors are more slick and glossy). I usually don't look great in mauvey tones, but this has enough brown in it to work for my NC25 skin tone. The key is to put only a thin layer on; as it will look too silvery and frosty if you keep adding layers. I also found when I get to the bottom of the tube, it thickens up more and makes it harder to get thin application. That said, it looks gorgeous when applied right. EDIT: Had to return. Either I've changed or formula has gotten thicker. Looked too frosty on me by days end.
I own about 6 glossimers. I never bought this one over the years because I loved Pin-Up and this was close to it. Pin-Up was discontinued so I finally bought this. As one of the last reviewer wrote, it does have the potential to look garish or 'white' on. Some of the older Glossimers are more pigmented and heavier. I do prefer this texture because it lasts longer and is not so 'glossy' or real wet on lips (when it's so wet your hair sticks to your lips). It looks best if you apply over a lipliner and use a very small amount, then blend. It will look stunning. EDIT: I wore it this weekend and happened to catch a look in mirror. It turned almost a frosty white and looked all wrong on me. I tried it alone w/o a liner and looked more natural. Still returned. It is not at all close to Pin-Up.
All foundations end up breaking me out. I have combination skin, but prone to breakouts. I have been using this for 3 months with no problems. I usually hate the way MAC foundations feel on my skin. Not this one. They finally have a winner. That said, I don't think this would be good if you have dry skin. This smoothes out my skin and keeps oil away for most of the day. Love it. I am NC25, which is a great match.
I really liked this mascara at first; nice natural, clump-free lashes. As a few other reviewers wrote, this mascara flakes badly. When I got home from work yesterday, I noticed flakes all around my lower lid area.
Conditioner -Paul Mitchell - Extra-Body Daily Rinse

I've used this rinse on and off for about 6 years. It is not really a true conditioner, but more like a cream rinse for detangling fine hair. I do stray because I like to try other things. I think it's good to always alternate because all products will eventually build up. This product lets me get a comb through my hair and is great paired with a moisture rich shampoo.
Tried the sample of this from Aveda store. The combo of all three Damage Remedy products was too much for my fine, thin hair. That said, I love this Daily Hair Repair. I use a pea size amount on the bottom half of my hair before I blowdry; mainly ends. My ends look healthy, full, and static-free. I still use the Kerastase Nectar Thermique as well, but this Aveda one feels lighter. I will alternate depending on how my hair feels.
