Powder -Prescriptives - All Skins Mineral Foundation spf 15

I have tried every mineral makeup out there it seems, but this one wowed me after the first application. This makeup covers beautifully (and I'm a stickler about coverage, I need it) in one application. It's leaves a natural airbrushed sheen. Not shiny at all. I have no itching with this even though bismuth is the last ingredient. I got the perfect match with Level 1 Warm Medium. I did a test the other night and put this mineral makeup on one side of my face and another brand on the other side. I asked my son which side looked better and he said Mom you only have makeup on one side! That was the side with the other brand. So that tells me if you get the perfect match you get coverage and a no makeup look. Go for it, but get color matched.
Palettes -Bobbi Brown - Mauve Face Palette Fall 2008

I really wanted to like the pallette. I saw this and thought "wow" a pallette that I can finaly wear that is not brown. Well I was wrong. All of the colors, except the blush, have a brown undertone. The mid shade eye shadow, vintage mauve, looks brown on me and a little too dark for the entire lid. The only lip color that showed up on me was the vintage mauve. I have the Mauve lipstick and like that much better than this one. The blush is great. Maybe if it comes out in a single I will buy it, but this palette is going back.
Just like the previous review, I love the tingly feeling and the vanilla smell of this lipgloss. It gives my lips a YLBB color and lasts for a while. I am not fond of the packaging. I find it hard to get enough gloss out to cover my lips. Overall it's a great lipgloss.
I got this as a sample with a BB online order. This is a great daytime smell. I'm not sure that I agree it smells like soap, but it is a very clean, nice smell. Not too overwhelming, but it's something you want to smell like all the time. Great scent!
Shampoo -Unlisted Brand - Marc Anthony Thickening Shampoo

I have tried low end & high end salon shampoos and haven't found any shampoo that works as good as this one for thickening fine hair. It is great. My hair has never had this much volume. I used it along with the thickening cream and the combo was magnificent. I highly recommend this product.

I bought this on a whim at CVS yesterday. OMG!!! This stuff is the bomb. My hair is fine and stick straight, so I don't have a lot of volume. I used his thickening shampoo, towel dryed my hair then worked in dime size of thickening cream into my roots down to my ends. When I blow dryed my hair I had so much volume I didn't know how to style my hair. It was great! I definitely recommend giving this a try if you need thicker hair and volume.
Since my beloved Graham Webb Head Games has been discontinued, I was on the search for a great hard hold hairspray. I have very fine, thin hair that basically I mess it up, then spray it in the back. A girl at a salon recommended this one and she let me try it in the store and I was so impressed. This is great stuff, holds but not tacky looking. Kudos to TiGi!!!
Love, love, love this lipgloss. I have pigmented lips, but this gives just a hint of color and truly makes my lips look 100% better.
I usually do not wear any shade of brown lipstick, but I have to say I am sooo glad I tried this one. I got it in a kit with Pink Sand blush and Rose Sugar lipgloss at a CCO. So, it was a great deal just for the blush and the lipgloss which I wanted. I must say this is the best brown. It's not so harsh ,not so dark and has a hint of pink. It's my lips but a lot better. I top this with either the Rose Sugar l/g or Pink Beige and I am soo impressed. For reference I have blonde hair, blue eyes and am a MAC NW15.
Powder -Prescriptives - AnyWear Multi-finish compact foundation

I bought this b/c every powder foundation I have tried lately settles into my 40 yr old fine lines. First of all this powder is great and holds up ALL day. The color never changes, it doesn't slide off your face and it's a great matte formula. Very easy to apply, comes with a sponge but you can use a powder brush if you want to top off your foundation or just buff it in. I will probably return the one I have b/c the put me in a Y/O color range (Ivory 05) and it is a tad too dark and I want this to last through the fall. I think I need a b/r color. Anyway I'm wearing it today wrong color not. If you like powder foundations, you will LOVE this one.

Like everyone else after ALL the raves about this concealer I had to try it and I am so glad I did. For reference, I am a MAC NW20 and I chose Level 1 cool. When my package arrived I immediately opened it and dabbed just a little on my finger and used it under one of my eyes, looked in the mirror and just about fell out! My dark circle was completely gone! I could not believe how smoothly it went on. I used it today for the first time under both eyes and on a few red places on my face and truly I could have gone without anything else on! It works that well. Run, go get yours now!
I LOVE this lipshine. It goes on beautifully, gives great shine with a small amount and it tastes and smells delicious! It's a great everyday lip gloss. My lips are pigmented and it gives off a faint pink/rosy color. Sheer coverage, great product.
This is a great powder foundation. I find that it covers extremely well. The trick is to use a fluffy powder brush, brush it all over your face and then if you need extra coverage in areas, use the sponge and dot over that area. Then spray MAC Fix + over your face and VOILA!!!! Perfect skin!!!
LOVE this perfume. Sweet, but sexy. This perfume has surpassed Pure Grace as my favorite! I even spray some on my pillow at night!
Primer/ Corrector -Laura Geller - Lip and Eye Spackle

LOVE this product. The lip spackle is the best lip primer I have ever used. You do not need a lot of this. It smooths out the lips and my lipstick looks great! I haven't used the eye spackle yet, but can't wait to try it!
