I love that this doesn't turn fuschia - like a previous reviewer mentioned. Its a stunning claret velvet color with microfine red shimmer. It does have some brown in it, but it is very red. I would imagine this would be pretty wearable for a variety of skintones. **edit** I took this down a lippie First because it doesn't last very long at all. I've heard raves about the …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (All brands)

I like! As an avid fan of face and body oils - I decided to try this. I use crisco on my face, and hair, and I think it does a wonderful job. It keeps my ends in shape and keeps my skin hydrated, healthy, less oily, and pimple free. BUT crisco kinda smells like french fries and its a really really heavy oil. Its cottonseed and soybean oil. So I was at my local supermarket and came across a huge …Read more

After taking many pics, I finally took one that is true to color (above). I'm c35/nc35 and at first I didn't like it at all but it grew on me. Its not a very exciting or attention grabbing color, but its the perfect nude if you want to draw attention to your eyes. Balance is key, and this lippie does the job. It seems to work well on C or NC skin tones, probably because those …Read more

This is for Maniac #06 "addict" lip liner. Love. It is a bit darker than my own lipcolor - and thats how I like it. I can sheer it out with some lipgloss or chapstick to go for that "i'm not wearing anything" look. Or I can pair it with any of my lipsticks - its that versitile. It also is double sided....it has a lip brush at the other end. Before I got this lipliner i …Read more

This is a universally flattering color. Its MLBB for me - and I love the satin formula. I prefer to use this over a coat of lipbalm because without out it, it looks too dark and brown. Perfect choice if you want to experiment with reddish lips at work without worrying if you look like a clown.

I really think people have the wrong idea about this. Yes, it is a tinted moisturizer that is designed to give you a tint. Its supposed to tint your skin just a tad darker to look like you got some sun. Its orange going on, but once you blend it, it looks wonderful and dewy. and you don't look pale! Its not intended as a light coverage foundation.

Technically I haven't purchased this product yet, i stopped by the mall and shopped until I had to pick up my husband from work. I spritzed this on myself on my way out. When I got out of the car and gave him a hug he immediately started sniffing me and asked "what is that you have on"? I told him it was this, and he said he really liked it and it smelled good. Thats no big deal …Read more

Vitamin E and Crisco are my only 2 skincare staples - and what a relief it is knowing that $5 bucks will buy me my entire skincare regimen for 2-3 months. WOW I use Crisco and a makeup remover and moisturizer, and vitamin e as a mask at night, or at least under the eyes every night. I bought HEB brand vitamin E in a small jar with a spatula. Its the same stuff that is in vit E capsules - thick …Read more
