I love it! The color is intense and it lasts lasts lasts!!! :) Most of the lipstick fade on me within an hour or two. My lips is so dry. But for this, even I apply a gloss on, it's still there even after the gloss's gone. And it's still intense just like it's just been applied. The color is so great. I got 122, 167, and would love to get 165 but my counter is out of stock so I definitely go back for more. It also feel very light weight. I'm not sure how the package will turn out in the long run, but so far this is the best one I've ever tried.
I have super oily eye lids so it's so hard to find any e/l that last long on me. Everything will just crease and by the afternoon or just noon, I get panda eyes. Mac Greasepaint Stick're one of those that happen to work so well. The funny thing is that if I rub on it, it'll smudge, but if I don't touch anywhere near, it stay put so well. I didn't love the color when I saw the swatch online, but when I tried it at the counter, it comes home with me. If you love the deep red brown with a hint of red metallic sheen (that's what it looks on me), you'll love this.
I picked out this color at the nail salon. It's so beautiful and really compliment my skin. I got compliments manytime wearing it. :) The staying power's good also. I'm not really a good nail polish wearer. I do stuff all the time, washing dishes, bathing my dog, etc. It's still there after almost 2 weeks. I don't know if it's because of the manicurist or what, but I'm impressed! I don't know about the price of the bottle though coz Essie's not available here.
I love this. It's very light and moisturize enough. Last a while on my lips which is better than any other lips I've tried. The selection looks horrible, but don't judge it unless you give it a try first. I almost skip it when I see the color in the tube. My super nice SA tried it on me and I decide to get the 710. It's also my first nude lipstick. I'm normally a red/pink lips girl. My lips stop flaking like crazy. I love it and thinking about getting another one. :)

I can't rave enough about this. It's the best I've ever tried and believe me I've tried a lot. Give my skin a supple and bright I've always wanted it to be. My face looks soft and the skin's very flexible. I love it, period.
Normally, I wouldn't pick a color like this. I dropped by the counter to pick up my pre-order and the MA put it on me with Mimmy while help me try on "Fun and Game" BPB. I didn't get BPB, but both this and Mimmy 're definitely coming home with me. The staying power is great. Unlike what I've heard about Mac lipstick that's normally dry lips out, this doesn't dry my lips. The color goes on smoothly and compliment me well. I don't care much for the packaging and the imprint Kitty on the lipstick though, I think it's kinda tacky. Anyway, since I love the color and the formula, now I'm thinking about getting a backup. Edited: For look alike, there's Revlon's Shiny Sheers in Sheer Dewy Blossom. I just found it in my stash. Look almost the same minus the blue sheen.
Just like some reviewers here, even the MA said it'd be too dark for me!!! I really didn't care about it when it first came out. I hate brown blushes. It makes me look burned and old. But suddenly, while browsing for my bridal gown, yeah... my time's coming. :P I found a model look so stunning in my dream gown. Everything look so perfect, the dress and the makeup! I know I have to have it. The dress can be wait a while but I can go to the mall right now. So I went to the mall and get it. It turn dark brown with a hint of red on my NC 20 skin. Last all day. Very pigmented so if you have light skin, beware. I think it's a very lovely blush and give out a great tan look.
Lips -Clarins - Lip colour tint No. 17 Peche Givree

I love the feeling of this lip tint. Very moisturizing, creamy, and quite long lasting on my lips. The colour is a translucent peachy pink with a shiny finish. It has a strong fruity smell like other clarins products but I find it acceptable. But if you don't like any lip product with strong frangance, steer clear of this one,
I love the feeling of this lip tint. Very moisturizing, creamy, and quite long lasting on my lips. The only draw back and the only reason I'm giving it only 3 lippies is that it applied not so smoothly on my lips. I never have a problem with any lip products before. Although it feels nice against my lips, it looks like a yucky stain instead of the creamy velvety that I feel. I also got # 17 Peche Giveree which is a more translucent one and that one doesn't have a problem like this one. I may try other colour, but I won't repurchase this one.

Look scary red in the pan turn very bright red on the cheeks. What you see is really what you get. I think the color is quite similar to the red side of Pop Beauty Sunrise, but Tarte's is redder, louder and even more pigmented. (I though Pop Beauty is already pigmented...) It's last all day. One tap on the pan then I'm set so I guess this will last me a loooong time. I won't repurchase since I don't think the color is that unique. You can find many that are similar to this. The compact it comes in is pretty though.
I hate being the first one to give this a not-so-fabulous review, but this melt on my eyes badly. Maybe it's a different formula? I don't understand since mine doesn't come with the blending tip. If I apply too light @ 8 am, by 10 am, they're gone. If I apply heavily @ 8 am, by 11 am, I got lines under my eyes. This is horrible. I love the bright color and a good size pencil, but it just doesn't work on me. The color is pretty though.
I went through my pile of makeup and found this. Since I haven't writen a review on it, although it discontinued, I hope one day MAC bring the line back. Strangely, this has an almost orange cast on me. Not pink. It's definitely a warm red on me. It's quite sticky. A very little goes a long way for this. Maybe this is why mine's still almost full. (Or maybe I just have too many lip stuff.) The staying power is good though.
Eye Shadow -MAC - Paint Pot in Nice Vice (Fafi Collection)

On me, this comes out looking purple-ish red. with a hint of silver. I love it! I've been trying to find this color forever and nothing seems right until now. I just can't stop looking at my eyes today. Although this totally looks like I'm wearing makeup (usually, I'm the very light & all natural type) but I just love it. The texture is ok for cream e/s. A little bit easy to blend than Greenstroke. I will definitely buy it again, but I doubt there will be a chance since it's LE and a little just goes a long way.
Sunscreen -Shiseido - Translucent Sun Block Stick SPF 30

I a fan of Shiseido sun line, but I don't really like this. It's very easy to apply though. However, I don't find the staying power to be any match to the cream formula. I won't buy it again.
Sunscreen -Shiseido - Very High Sun Protection Cream SPF 50
vink 11/7/2008 12:54:00 AM
My HG. For an easy-to-get-burned skin like me, this line's the best I've tried.Even better than Anessa line. The texture is creammy and soft. Very easy to apply. The smell is ok. Like a lotion when you apply. Somehow it dry down and in the evening, you will know that it smell ultimately like a sunscreen. That doesn't bother me though. I live in a beach town and this line's a god send for me. A little bit drying though, but I already have dry skin.
