I bought the Sculpt and Shape in Bone and Biege as I am a PPP. It really accentuates any depth/cheekbones you want to have in your face. If applied correctly, it will make you look as if you've lost 10 lbs! Gives great definition to the face.
I have found my perfect foundation! Finally! I have super oily, acne prone, blemished and prone to redness skin. This magic foundation is fantastic! It evens out the redness, covers the blemishes and does not "soak" into my skin like some other foundations have done (even Revlon's ColorStay eventually soaked into my skin. LOVE IT! Worth every penny. The packaging is not flawless because there is no mirror in the compact and no place for a sponge (which is how you have to apply it) So...other than that - outstanding product from MAC.
Tried the #4 MAC false eyelashes on a whim. What fun!! The 4's are the most natural looking ones that MAC had on their display. I bought the surgical glue adhesive that MAC sells but I'm sure you could buy it cheaper elsewhere. The lashes were $11 USD and the glue $9.00 USD. When the glue is a bit tacky (leave a little squirt on foil, do the rest of your makeup and the glue should be tacky enough) Break a QTip in half and lightly, LIGHTLY apply a thin strip along the false lash by dipping the end of the Qtip into the glue. (NOT the swab end) Then, close your eyes and apply the lash as close as humanly posible to your natural lash line. It may take a time or two to get it perfect but you will love the results. Lots of fun!
Great product from TBS. The scent is a true nut and last for a long time. I would echo what the other reviewer says about "a little goes a long way." Believe me, you don't want to go crazy spraying this all over. Just a spray or two and you're good to go. And... Try it in your hair (Just a small squirt, now) It'll make your hair a little more managable and you'll smell divine.
Dove Feather is a beautiful color. However, be warned that all of the Veluxe e/s are highly pigmented and apply much darker than they appear in the pot. Otherwise a lovely new product from MAC.
Palettes -Bobbi Brown - Nude on Nude Shadow Palette

Great palette from BB. The colors are all beautiful, neutral colors. The color combinations are endless and they blend together beautifully. Comes with applicator.
There is nothing matte about this product. It goes on shiny, stays shiny and finishes shiny. Worse, its in a long tube that makes it difficult to control how much product comes out. Bleh! Color is ok, but not dead on accurate.
Liquid -Jane - Stay Calm Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

Great cheap foundation! I wouldn't exactly call it matte, but its good for oily skin. The bottle is a plastic squeeze bottle so you can control the amount you want. Great price, good product!
Great new product from Sephora. The scent is a musky vanilla with a smooth finish. The Body Balm is a generous portion of silky smooth cream. Love the texture: thick and creamy.
This is a great, all inclusive palette! All thats missing is a mascara. The colors are wonderful, the e/s are a nice matte texture that apply beautifully. The concealer is not too thick. The only beef I have with this product is that SK doesn't list the colors. Argh!
Have to agree with most of the others on this one. The Body Butters are great! They go on smoothly, are great for dry skin and aren't too expensive. I haven't tried many scents but the ones I have tried smell natural and not too synthetic.

Cleansers -Dermalogica - Dermal Clay Facial Cleanser

This cleanser does clean well and help oily skin but for $25 you can buy cheaper cleasers that work just as effectively. Namely, Cetaphil.

Great product to control frizzies and flyaways. It's cheap too. A little goes a LONG way so be careful how much product you use. Get the unscented version. :)
What the hell is this? Pure grain alcohol? I can't think of a harsher substance to put on the tender skin of a face. AVOID! AVOID!
