i love this bronzer so much! it is the most natural-looking one i have ever used but it still gives you quite a bit of color (i am lm beige ivory and use the light shade of this bronzer). i just spray it onto my face in a circular motion, blend with my mac 187, and i'm good to go. it makes you GLOW and there's no shimmer so it's good for daytime. only drawback is the price and the fact that i doesn't really last that lon (about two or three months). but i don't care, this is the BEST and i will buy again and again.
Conditioner -TRESemme - Smooth and Silky Vitamin H and Silk Proteins

i bought this based on the excellent reviews here, and i was not disappointed at all. cheaper than probably anything else i use for my hair and better too. it really moisturizes my long, color-processed hair and makes it feel so much softer. i leave it in for about five minutes, longer if i can can, and then comb it through and rinse. it is the best conditioner I've ever used for my dry hair. i have already bought a second bottle and there is a lot of product in them!
this is necessary for anyone with blue eyes, it makes mine stand out so much. a beautiful bronzey brown with slight shimmer. i like it on the inner rim of my lower lashline and also on the top lashline. it goes on very smoothly and doesn't tug at all (my powerpoint does). teddy also stays on much better than other kohls i've tried. love love love this, i have repurchased several times.
not bad at all. really builds up a lot of volume and thickness and makes your lashes look big. you can layer it well too, it didn't really clump on me. unfortunately, it's pretty heavy and doesn't hold a curl well, and it also smudges after a couple hours of use. i liked it while i used it, but i have since switched to mac zoom lash and i like this much better.
Makeup Brushes -MAC - #187 Duo Fiber Face Brush (Stippling, Skunk Brush)

this is possibly the best makeup item i've bought in the last year, it's such a great brush. i use it with my mac select foundation (a liquid) and it buffs in beautifully. as others have said, brush the foundation in with small circles so you really get the airbrushed look. i love this for bronzer and studio fix too, but i always use the brush for foundation first and then it's too full of product to use with powder. so i might just get another one! the price is the only downside, i wish it were $30 or so. but it's worth it and i'm so glad i invested in one! thanks for the rec, mua . . .
this stuff is GREAT. i used stila sun gel over the summer and really liked it, but didn't want to pay the steep price when i ran out. i poked around makeupalley and found good reviews for this bronzer. it's for men, so i figured it would be pretty natural. it has the right mix of brown and red tones so it looks like a realistic tan. application is key though. if i just spread this around with my fingers, it looks blotchy. i use a foundation brush and blend, blend, blend on very well-moisturized skin. stays on all day and is half the price of sitla sun gel. a great buy, i would look into this if you are thinking about gel bornzer. i am an nc37 fo reference. EDIT: after reading the reviews below me, i wanted to add that i put this on AFTER foundation, so that i have very little red in my face. if you find this bronzer makes you ruddy, i would put some concealer or foundation on first. it does the trick for me.
