This is a review for the color MINK. This is a great little eyeliner. I use it to fill in my brows as well as line my eyes.
Its a very soft pencil which has a tendency to smudge , so I definitely use it more when I am expecting that to happen. Of course it smudges more in warm weather than cold and I wouldn't use it to heavily line my eyes for a night out, as I don't think that …

This is a great gloss. Its not one of my favorites, but it is still a good go to gloss for most days.

Its a mild medium pink color with rather large pieces of gold glitter. Its not too much gold, but there is definitely more contrast between the gold pieces and the color of the gloss itself.
Definitely perfect for a nighttime summer look or tropical vacation ;)

I am a …

I love this hand cream. I am fortunate to always get it as a gift for Christmas so I rarely buy it myself, but I know it is expensive.

Stays on for a long time and really seems to hydrate skin well. Can be a little hard to rub in on cold hands, so you might need to rub your hands a lot to get the product to heat up. Other than that, its a great lotion with a mild calming …

This is a great product , slightly overpriced, but I really like it. I use it after I have applied my makeup to soften the appearance and help set it.
It has a pleasant fresh smell and seems to be pleasing to my face.

However, there is a product from Cinema Secrets which works better than this one and is much cheaper. Out of laziness I have not ordered it because it is easier to …

I received a sample of this on the street one day. I guess it was a promotion as it is now being sold at Duane Reade in NYC.

It works pretty good. I think the trick is to really smooth it around in your hands so it is warm, then , apply it with a light hand.

I use it to calm some of my flyaways and accentuate my layers as well.

Heaven, I love MAC lustreglasses....and I previously used Sinnamon as a go to color and I certainly will continue too, however this color is just incredible...a perfect go to color for the summer and you can layer it over lipsticks, etc. Sometimes I feel like Sinnamon looks better when I am tan, but with this color it doesn't matter, I can be tan or pale and it looks perfect by itself. A …Read more

hmmm...I wanted to love this product...but I just think it is seriously overrated and has done nothing for my hair....
I blow dry my hair and hot roll it, then finish it off with a tiny bit of straightening iron, every other day...eeekkk...Its alot of processes....and I'm well aware of that.
I needed something to take care of flyaways and make it easier to style. I guess I …

Liquid - MAC Cosmetics - Pro Longwear Foundation

HG foundation for me....because of color and coverage. I used to use Revlon Colorstay as well as L'Oreal (can't remember the name). L'Oreal doesn't cover as well and Revlon covers well, but I can't find a color as my skin needs a yellow undertoned foundation. This foundation is perfect...gives pretty heavy buildable coverage, and definitely stays on very very well...I was …Read more

I have to say this product has been a lifesaver for my skin...I don't know what was going on with my skin prior...but it just seemed like I always had small clogged pores no matter how much I struggled to keep my skin exfoliated and makeup removed. It seemed to gradually get worse over time...

My derm recommended this cream. I read the instructions and it said it was for people …
