I love the Paris Nudes. I use them in conjunction with the neutral mattes palette, however. That is what they were designed for, when I talked to Anastasia Viseart about it, that is what she told me.

I think they add the perfect subtle touches to the makeup which is gorgeous but understated. I don't generally wear these alone, however. For the price, if you can only afford one …

Fragrances - Yves Rocher - Naturelle EDT

Jun/12/2015

I have a VERY hard time with fragrance. Most of the time they might smell fantastic on others, in the bottle, on a card, but when you put them on me- AWFUL. My skin tends to turn fragrance into stink very quickly.

When I got a full bottle of Naturelle as a gift, I was not even going to try it on. Why bother? I was not wanting to be disappointed.

Finally, before I put …

I bought this about a year ago and have been using it mostly in the summer. I had forgotten how quickly it absorbed into skin until recently when I began to use it again.

I didn't like the glass bottle it came in (due to greasy hands maybe dropping it) so I put it in an old pump bottle. That was kind of a mistake, because it dispenses a little bit too much oil with each pump. …

Nov/13/2014

I was about to give away a random Sephora code on the Makeup board when someone announced that Viseart had just appeared on SEphora. I had no idea what it was or why I should care.

I am a makeup artist. One thing that has been lacking in my kit has been e/s that I have been comfortable with using in HD camera work. I have foundation, blush, and other products that I use all of the …

I have used and recommended Lancome Absolue for years since it first came out (at the price of $70). It has been one of the most remarkable creams on the market. In recent years, however, humungous price jumps and change in quality have led me to stop pursuing Absolue and look for other products which are as good.

I had not found anything until recently- Algenist Genius. …

I love to use MAC Fluidline or other gel liners as cream eyeshadow. However, they dry so fast that they tend to look patchy and horrible. However, when applying the Renergie Multi-Action Eye cream, it takes cream eyeshadow to another whole level.

This cream is emollient but not GREASY. It does take a few minutes to absorb, but that is the beauty of it. That gives me plenty of time …

Sep/22/2014

I have a hard time finding neutrals that work on me. Urban Decay is one of the worst companies for me in that department. Having said that, I want to add that I have the other Vice palettes so I am used to a good quality eyeshadow from Vice.

NEUTRALS
The neutrals in this palette surprised me. I am a foundation NW25 with a rose brown skin tone around my eyes. It is very …

Highlighters - GUERLAIN - Meteorites Perles Teint Dore

I have used all of the three colors of meteorites and my personal favorite is Teint Dore 03. I use it on all skin tones with a pretty high success rate. It gives a lovely golden glow that is reminiscent of sunny glow on the skin. I have used it on all ages from mid 80s to teens and it looks beautiful on most skin tones.

I also will use some of the pink meteorites such as the one with …

Best foundation I have ever used,

I use this on men (that refuse to wear MU but had to due to discoloration for event) and women with remarkable results- especially older people with aging issues. Does not settle into creases and wears all day too.

Best color selection out there, and easy to blend for unique colors too.

A little goes a long way, however, so it …

Makeup Brushes - Sephora Collection - Pantone Stroke of Nature Brush Set

Jun/07/2012

The package is really extravagant and lovely to look at. Comes in a box, then in a case that is hinged with large mirror. There are plastic molds for each brush, but in my opinion it is pomp and circumstance. Even if you travel with it, it is WAY too big for saving space in the suitcase.

ANGLED LINER BRUSH- very soft and more precise than any of the three angled liner brushes that …
