I'm surprised by how much I like this! As others have said, it can be challenging to find a dark brow product that isn't too warm-toned. The Anastasia Granite shade works pretty well, but I go through the Brow Wiz a little too quickly for the expense, and life circumstances are forcing me to cut back. I decided to give NYX a try but didn't expect much. I'm glad to say I was …Read more

I bought 4 shades and have to say I was disappointed in their quality. Then again, it might not have been possible for them to live up to all the hype! All the shades I purchased were mattes, and I found them to be disappointingly sheer (and I'm very pale). It seems like the shimmery shades might be more pigmented based on other reviews I've read. I think these shadows would compare …Read more

This brush has been a lifesaver for my daughter, who has long, straight, fine hair that easily tangles. She's now able to brush her hair relatively quickly and painlessly. I truly believe this is a must-have product for any mother of children with hair. The fact that it comes in colors like pink and purple as well as fun patterns is just a bonus. We own both the regular brush and the …Read more

I love this color! It's a soft, happy, summery red that goes well with my Snow White coloring. Today I've got a Mad Men vibe going on, with a navy full-skirted dress & navy cardigan. A triple strand of red beads and this lipstick give me the pop of color that my outfit and I need. It feels comfortable on the lips, doesn't bleed and has good staying power. I got mine on …Read more

I really love the formula & color of this lipstick. It's pigmented, moisturizing without being greasy and blessedly scent- and taste-free. This shade reminds me of the classic Crayola "orange-red" crayon, a red base with a touch of orange. It's a great way to get a trendy look without breaking the bank. I love most of the Colorbursts, and Coral is no exception. Good …Read more

This brush is awesome for applying liquid foundation! I've tried traditional foundation brushes, the Beauty Blender, the MAC stippling brush ... until now, nothing seemed to work as well as using my fingers (and it's much less hassle to wash your hands than a brush). This baby has changed my mind completely. It makes short work of applying my MUFE foundation - I use less, and it …Read more

Makeup Brushes - MAC Cosmetics - #165 Contouring Brush [DISCONTINUED]

Nov/15/2009

I adore this brush and use it every day to apply my pressed powder highlighter. It's great for contouring as well. It's very soft and washes well. I find that not all MAC brushes are high in quality (my 266 fell apart after a few months, and I have brushes from Stila that are still going strong after 12+ years), but the 165 is lovely. The only thing I hate is that the stamped …Read more

Eye Makeup Remover - Sonia Kashuk - Remove

Nov/15/2009

This is probably the best eye makeup remover available at a mass market retailer (Target). It actually works as well as the dual-phase options from Lancome or Clinique but at a much more reasonable price, and you can get it while grocery shopping. (I use the Clinique or Lancome stuff when I get a GWP but would otherwise not purchase.) This is a great product, but I'm holding my 5 rating …Read more

I have this in shade 01 (Shine On), and I really like it. It's basically colorless with a hint of sparkle, which sounds pretty boring, but it gives such a lovely glow - on bare lips or over a lipstick. It has the clicky pen brush applicator, which I know annoys a lot of people, but I actually kind of like it. I recommend checking this out, especially if it's on sale.

Aug/16/2009

This is a no-brainer palette for anyone who wants a neutral, professional look. This set of 4 mostly matte shades comes in a sturdy lucite palette with a decent-sized mirror and are helpfully labeled as "Browbone" (similar to MAC Vanilla, a cream-colored highlighter shade with slight shimmer); "Lid" (matte, light tan with no red or orangy undertones); "Crease" (sort …Read more
