Polishes - Rescue Beauty Lounge - Revamp nail lacquer

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/08/2006

Revamp is a sort of purpled black infused with red micro glitter. The effect after three coats is black with minor flashes of red. It's more subtle (if black is ever subtle) then I thought it would be. <BR><BR>
I don't think it's that special and certainly not worth $18 plus shipping. I would not buy this again, even if I lost this one, no replacement for me …

Misc Beauty Tools - Unlisted Brand - Zeno

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/02/2006

I L&#9829;VE my Zeno! So far it has worked on all but one of my blemishes. I usually only get 1-4 per month so the Zeno works great for me. I have farily normal skin with a little bit of oilyness in the T-zone. I was able to get a good deal for mine on ebay, but if I lost it I'd happily pay full price for another one. If you have mild to moderate acne, give it a try. <br>

Highlighters - GUERLAIN - Les Meteorites Ball Powder - Pink Fresh 02

I LOVE this stuff! This is such a wonderful color for blush. I don't think I would wear this all over my face very often. But I like this much better then Mythic (original) which is too cool for me, Beige Chic which is lovely but not as good as Pink fresh. I am soooooo happy to have found this.

Eye Shadow - shu uemura - Eye Jelly- Brown

Feb/20/2006

OK, maybe it was just me, but I could NOT get this to show up on me! There was the faintest hint of of goldish micro glitter and that is it. I'd also like to comment on the creepy texture of this stuff. I really, really layered it on in the hopes of some color, but alas, it was not to be. But the surface of this stuff looked like it was brand spanking new, never touched. It is a nasty …Read more

Oct/18/2005

<b>NEW FORMULA</b> (as of April 2006)<br>
Shu has reformulated their e/s formula recently and will be phasing out the "old" line that is reviewed under the title of "Eye Shadow".<br><br>
The first installment of 44 (out of a supposed 100+ during the next year) are very nice. They are softer then the "old" formula. Pigment is …

Eye Shadow - AVEDA - Eye Shadow - Vinca

Feb/17/2005

What a BEAUTIFUL color. Too bad it won't show up *at all*! This is one of Aveda's new and reformulated e/s. It really jumps out from the rest as a vibrant, shimmery medium-dark purple. It shows up as an ultra sheer purple color closer to a faded purple bruise then anything, ick. When I say sheer, I mean a normal sheer e/s after it has been worn for 8 hours, that is how well it …Read more

Eye Shadow - shu uemura - P Beige 808

Jan/20/2005

What a beautiful color in the pan. What a disapointment on the eye. The shimmery neutral beige became a clear/non existant color with micro glitter on my eye. Plus the texture of this (and the other products from this collection) are *nothing* like the soft, blendable silk that I expect from Shu. These were rough and chalky. <BR><BR>
If you have Beige IR 803, the colors are …

Palettes - By Terry - Compact with powder refill

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/01/2004

I also have the pressed powder Jewel Case. What decadence! A super shinny silver compact with a mirror. Like all the Jewel compacts it comes with a purple velvet drawstring bag (so it won't get scratched I guess). I was able to get mine on sale from eLuxury.com. Mine was a Valentine special where you got the compact and a pink powder that said "LOVE" or "KISS" or a …Read more

Eye Shadow - shu uemura - Breezing Earth Duo

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/01/2004

This is the Brown e/s duo from the Boutique Birthday collection (sold in Shu Boutiques around the world). The e/s come in what would normally be a Glow On blush case, but it has a neat blue and pink design on the front. Retails for $36 USD. The texture, as always, is amazing. Soft and bendable, easily build-able for more intensity. All of the Breezing Duo's are shimmery e/s and no …Read more
