This is a great natural eye shadow becase its a soft beige/white that has some shimmer in it. the staying power is whatever b/c i dont really have really oily lids so im not really concerned about that. but there this l'oreal one that looks exactly the same as shroom except that its cheaper, bt they are basically the same. Shroom is a classic eye shadow that a whole bunch of drugstore brands carry almost the exact color. so i wouldnt reprchase this.
I love using this with the urban decay lipstain in envious. these two products combined gives me such naturally, red tinted lips. but i couldnt use either prodcts seperately. b/c this lipglass makes the stain believable and slightly glossy. but i dont know if its good enough to make me wanna reprchase it though..
i have 2 chanel blushes ( they r so damn expensive!!) Mirage and fantasia. I didnt really like mirage so i decided to by another chanel blush b/c i really wanted a blush that gives a healthy glow that looks like i just went-out-for-a-run kind of a look. I didnt like fantasia at first because it was way too pigmented ( i thought). and at time i was sing a sonia kashuk blush brush b/c i thought i lost my shu uemura blush brush. and so like weeks later i found my brush and was just using fantasia b/c i felt like i HAD to use it b/c it was $40!! but this time when i used it, it wasnt this dark suntanned reddish/pink look! it was just a nice pink/coral color, like it was a completely different look! The brush u use really does affect the way ur product goes on. now i always use this blush with mac blush in melba and i DONT think that it was a waste of money. im so excited, because this blush looks so pretty and i loove this rosey scent.
I got this bronzer in its limited edition in the Lure collection (very cute compact!). I didnt like it that much for the first several months I had it but then i saw all these great reviews on here and how it gives u that californian sun-kissed look. So I decided to try it again. I can say that this is the best bronzer I've ever completely used ( I have a couple of bronzers but i dont usually use them).i used to think that bronzers were supposed to make u look darker i guess. but then after reading a bunch of magazines and reviews on mua, i realized that Bronzers are only used on like the sides of ur nose , cheeks, jawlines, and like above ur brows ( where the sun sually hits ur face). So wearing bronzers does give u a more a wake look that looks warm. Now i always wear this bronzer! This bronzer is not 'orangey' at all and is supposedly usable with people of all skintones. It doesnt give a 'muddy' look at all. Im a nc42 so its perfectly darker then my skintone with just enough shimmer that isnt very 'in ur face!' I would repurchase!!=]i like it alot
This is my FAVORITE CLEANSER.. i love using this in the mornings and at night. I use a scrub (st. Ives, Neutrogena) before using this cleanser and I get really clean skin since i wear foundation everyday. This cleanser also takes off my makeup so well i dont need seperate makeup remover cleansers ( not that i wear alot of make up)=]. I love the tingling sensations whenever i use this!! You feel so relaxed and calm. I have repurchased this and will continue to if I cant find a cleanser as great as this one!
Powder -Bare Escentuals - Bare Minerals Foundation #2

This is the BEST loose powder ever! I use this now over the laura mercier tinted moisturizer (which is also the BEST tinted moisturizer!) This gives such good coverage that i dont even really need concealer. it covers reddness and some light acne scars. But the thing i like MOST about this powder is that it has this soft shimmer in it, if u really look at it you can see some shimmer flecks but i gess its natural. so when you put it on you dont get a really matte powdery look. The finish is EXTREMELY natural and gives you a soft dewy look. really i love this i think it will replace my mac studio fix for now. im probably only gonna use the studio fix for touch ups throughout the day. i would repurchase as soon as i run out and i usually dont even like loose powders b/c it just screams messy with like powder flying all over the place. but i love this foundation and it matches my skintone EXACTLY!!my favorite foundation ever!! Also the application of this fondation is fairly easy. I dont use a kabuki brsh jst a regualar powder blush. I dont need to 'swirl, buff,and tap' i jst por some into the cap and use my brush to get some powder on the brush, i blow off the excess powder then i brush it all over my face. so easy to use and not even messy.I would soooo repurchase!!

I know lots of people said that this probably wouldn't show up on people with darker skin but im a nc43 and it really brightens up my face. this is not a blsh at all maybe thats why it isn't showing up!! but when i put this all over my face it just gives me this light glow !!i hated dandelion case it make my entire face look pink/reddish!! but i love georgia and it smells good too! would reprchase.
Crème -MAC - Select SPF 15 Moistureblend [DISCONTINUED]
whitn3yly 8/16/2006 9:25:00 PM
I really like this foundation and i think i will reprchase for now. So many fondations are just okay but this one is like wow!! i apply it with the sponge that came with it. then I set it with mac studio fix!! the finish is a semi-matte that looks really natural. my skin is pretty much normal its just that i like breakot every other week. This also doesnt work on flakey dry skin. dont be fooled when u ask the ma what foundation is good for dry skin and they say moistreblend.b/c moistre blend HIGHLIGHTS the flakes and dry skin on your face. luckily i dont really get flakes. i would reprchase as soon as i run ot. bt this fondation is not for everyone just read the reviews!)
I really really like this as a blush. I really wasnt sure about getting this b/c a lot of reviews said this was hard to blend because it just went all over their face b/c its liquid. I had absoltely no problems blending this at all! I love the applicator. I have been looking for a perfect blush forever b/c im very into blushes, they make a huge difference in your all over apperarence. I like that this is kind of thin so that it doesnt look really obvious that im wearing blush. But its enough to give me this very beautiful rosey glow from within. I loooove it but as a lip stain it doesnt work that well because i find that it only stains the INSIDES of my lips and looks really weird. Maybe it would stain my entire lip if I put a lipbalm on before benetint (i do like the way it looks on the insides of my lip though, im always looking for a beautiful sheer red lipgloss!) I could definently see myself repurchasing. If tarte cheek stains ( it never shows up on me. ihave tipsy and tickled) dont work for you, you should TRY THIS!!
Lots of people said that this was the 'prrr' for olive/med so i decided o try it cos prrr looked a bit frosty on my semi-pigmented lips. But this looked way too goldish on me mainly because of the gold flecks. So basicall it went on CLEAR with gold flecks! i hate clear gloss by the way. but this lipglass went on clear i could not see ANY pink on my lips. But im going to return it though. I could see how this would look pretty on someone with less pigmented lips though. So if ou do have pigmented lips as i do i dont recommend ou use it.
Liquid -L'Oreal - True Match Super-Blendable Makeup SPF 17
whitn3yly 8/12/2006 6:23:00 PM
when I first bought it before i even used it i dropped it and the bottle broke!! the glasss container that it is in is very cheap b/c ive dropped other glass foundations and the did not break. Aside from the cheap conainer the coloring are all wrong for me and none of the colors work even though here are 24 color selecions. The finish was also too powder. ive never really liked drugsore foundations anyway, ive tried most of them in which i thought looked very unnaural and most 93% of the foundaions are NW which is a pink undertone and ou want foundations mostly with a yellow undertone b/c it looks wa more natural!! But I love m MAC foundation. I use select moistureblend ( with SPF!) as a foundation then I set it with the mac studio fix. I get a ultra natural, dewy look with the perfect coverage, which is what I want in a foundaion. But this foundation is yucky!!
OMG this is my most favorite perfume ever!! Im very picky about what i wear because i dont want it to be too overpowering, or smell like cheap perfume or too fruity. To me this does not smell like a apple at ALL! (which might be good) The container (i have absolutely no idea why this is 'hard to use' its just a bottle shaped as a apple) is shaped like a glass apple but i would perfer a more chic bottle. I really like the way it smells hours later. For me this stays on my clothes and skin like FOREVER!! even after i took a shower i still smelled it on me neck and yes i scrubed myself clean. My friends always tell me i smell good and this perfume is exactly why. There are so many perfumes at the departments smells that smell like TOXIC or old women. lol. and some are just truely disgusting, but this one surely isnt. I bought the 1.7 fl. oz (i think well the smaller bottle) but im almost done with this bottle (isnt it exciting ive NEVER finished any perfume ever of body lotion) i think im gonna buy the bigger apple. Perfume smells differnet on everbody because the perfume mixes with ur naural body oils. i cant believe some people said it smelled like chemicals. And the red apple (???the new one that came out after this green apple) doenst even compare to this one. I would difiently repurchase!!!!!!!!
I really love this as a eye liner. I find that eye liners look really artificual on me ( i know that sounds weird but its true) with black eye shadow it gives me super natural look. I would never use this as a shadow so if ur looking or a black eyeshadow try something else cause this is way too matte. But if I do use a stick liner i would set it with this eyeshadow using the mac 266 brush (which is also fantastic!! Works extrmely well if ur looking for a black eyeshadow to use as a liner!! i would definently repurchase=]
Ive purchased this several times and I always put this over a foundation or tinted moisturizer to set it. The finish isnt too matte, just natural enough. Im not sure if this is the product that kinda makes me break out. I was in 8th grade when I started using this (now in 9th)so it might just be me and my hormones cos i dont ALWAYs breakout but kind of most of the time. also i didnt start getting breakout right after i used this product it was like after 4 months. but like after i eat like fries of somthing i like breakout all over but like i do have my clear days also. im so confused!! ive tried like other powders but their not even half as good as studio fix is. the others were like not a good match only because the lines carried nasty color selection, some were too powdery or sheer. but studio fix is like perfect.. never powdery and the color matches me like really well. so should i find somehting else to use for a week to see if i dont breakout anymore?? or should i just ocntinue to use this cause i doubt ill find something as good as studio fix.
This is wonderful pink gloss for my lips. I dont find this 'thick' at all. It has a okay staying power and the smell of it doesn't really bother me. But I like it a lot for the way it looks on me. I dont find it to be 'too pink' on me either. Its perfect for a no makeup look, and doenst even look that shiny or glossy (which I dislike). I would definently repurchase!
