This is nice. It's basically a black shadow with pink glitter so in the container it looks burgundy. It goes on very dark so I usually use it as a liner and blend it just a tiny bit around my eyes. It takes a lot of time and blending to apply it as eyeshadow.
Lotions/ Creams -Neutrogena - Norwegian Formula Hand Cream

I like this stuff. It smells awesome. It doesn't seem to last a very long time but I have noticed a slight difference in my dried out hands. Very Vaseliney. Much better than Bliss labs hand cream in my opinion plus it's cheaper.
This stuff is pretty crappy. I have it in "Prune Captivante 43" and it's not compacted enough or something. It might as well be a loose powder because every time I try and use it it falls all over my cheeks and under my eyes and it's just really messy. I just got the Nars "New York" shadow which is a similar color to this but far superior. Of course Nars is more expensive but this one is worth it.
I don't know if this is the same one but it's called "Longeur Sublime". The color is "Prune Organdi" and I thik it's super pretty and very natural. The burgundy brings out the color in your eyes and it makes your lashes long and separates them well. I wore this for a straight year practically everyday. It's good for someone who doesn't ant realt dark lashes, or someone who doesn't wear mascara often because it's subtle.
Mascara -Chanel - Instant Lash Mascara in Black/Brown

I just took this out of my drawer to check it one more time. The minute I pulled it out of the tube there was a HUGE glob of mascara that was threatening to run all over my hands. The brush is covered with globs of mascara and basically it's a disgusting mess. Pitiful. Expensive and messy and I don't know what else to say - BEWARE OF CHANEL MASCARAS> THEY ARE ALWAYS LIKE THIS. Pretty colors but a waste of money.
Self Tanners -Clarins - Gelee Auto Bronzant Express - Self-Tanning Instant Gel

I've only been "self tanning" since last summer but I really like this a lot. It's great to accentuate a tan that you already have, and even when you don't have a tan and are very pale it looks natural. It smells weird but I guess they all do. It works super fast - you can put your clothes on immediately afterwards. I had trouble with staining around my ankles but putting moisturizer on them before the gel cleared up the problem. Excellant product.
These are delicious smelling and incredibly pretty AND a very good price. I love this shade a lot. The packaging is convienent and I'll say it again - they smell amazing! This one has a citrus scent and it lasts a long time. Perfect. ****Just added: I now have other colors of Juicy Tubes and I don't like this color as much. It's kind of weird on my complexion which is very pale brunette.
While I don't think packaging is very important...I have to admit I LOVE this tube of mascara. It's an irridescent (spelling?) red color with a gold band around the neck. It's really pretty. The mascara I have is the "black/red" shade and I think it's gorgeous. I have hazel eyes and it makes them look bright green when I have this color on. It dried out a bit since I've had it but I would definately buy it again. GOD BLESS KEVYN AND THELMA...
This color is really pretty - so is Spectra Peach and Electron Pink, which is a sort of neon pink color. Unfortuanately, this tube of Hi-Resin Rose I have here at home has done something that I've noticed with several other MAC glosses - It turned from smelling really good to smelling really bad. I don't understand why this happens with these Lip Glosses. Sometimes they smell good forever, and other ones turn stinky after a couple of months. Anyway, other than that these are great colors and while I am a bit more inclined towards Juicy Tubes these days I still wear these colors often.
Treatments (Eye) -Z. Bigatti - Restoration Eye Cream

Is this a joke? I've had two jars of this stuff -one that I purchased, and one that my Mom gave me after she told me "This did nothing for me". Well, I'm going to have to agree with her. It's ridiculously expensive -$100 or more, I think. I guess I fell into that terrible thought process of "if it's really expensive it must be good". I noticed no changes to my eyes at all. Moisturized a little but only temporarily.
I use the medium concealer everyday. I really like it. I have pretty dry skin in the winter so I've yet to find ANY concealer that doesn't make my undereye area a little bit dry looking, but this I find this one very compatible. Especially in the summer - it almost gets a tiny bit greasy but I really don't mind - a little powder fixes it right up.
Stay away from this if you ave even slightly dry skin! This stuff will make you look ancient. A friend told me last year that MAC was changing the formula to make it more moisturized. So far this has not happened. On a positive note - they have some good shades that match well with your skin.
As a huge fan of the Full and Soft mascara, I find this one a dud. Made my eyelashes thin and spidery looking - they were a little longer but in a really weird way. I didn't really like this at all.
This mascara is really terrific. I have all these really expensive ones here from chanel to MAC to who knows what else - must have spent hundreds and hundreds of dollars on mascaras. This one is my favorite and I use it everyday. It does dry up rather fast as someone else mentioned in a review, but it's so inexpensive it's definately worth replacing. I hear the waterproof is amazing as well but I hate all the time it takes taking off waterproof mascara so I stick with the regular one.
