Eye Shadow - Unlisted Brand - About Face - Kiss the Frogs

Kiss the Frogs is a nice shimmery deep olive green. Color payoff is nice and strong, goes on even more intense than it looks in the jar.

As with all About Face pigments - it goes on with minimal fallout, blends nicely. However, I must use UDPP or it creases, but I have very oily lids, so it may be different for you …

Eye Shadow - Unlisted Brand - About Face - Hot for Chocolate

Hot for Chocolate is a very unique brown - really, the color does resemble a nice milk chocolate bar with sparkle. :) As with all About Face pigments, I've found I must use a primer (UDPP) to keep the color in place, and it does tend to crease badly without. I have very oily eyelids though, so it may be just me. It blends easily and fallout while applying was very minimal. I also applied wet …Read more

Aug/31/2008

I really wanted to love this product, but alas, I can't. I didn't notice any difference wearing this under my foundation (Estee Lauder Double Matte). It didn't make the foundation look any smoother or last longer and I think I was actually more oily at the end of the day. It was rather spendy, but it is a large tube, which I imagine would last a very long time. I'm not find of …Read more

Cleansers - Estée Lauder - Sparkling Clean Oil-Control Foaming Gel Cleanser [DISCONTINUED]

This is my HG skin cleanser. I keep it in the shower and use it daily. One squirt from the pump dispenser is all you need. I opened my current bottle in June of '06 - still going on it, so the fact that it lasts FOREVER makes it well worth the value. It is awesome at removing all makeup and residue. This is very gentle, and I have had no problems with redness or irritation.

I absolutely adore this brush. I have used it both with Estee's Ideal Matte, which is a whipped moussey texture and with the Double Matte, which is a liquid. It works beautifully with both and makes it so easy to blend my foundation, and without having to get it al over my fingers!

I have 4 of these in Tenacious, Intrepid, Valiant and Firey. I like the tenacious best as an overall base shadow. The pigment is not too over-the-top, so I feel comfortable wearing it to work. These blend very easily, and the fallout isn't too bad if you tap off the brush and use several applications if you want it bolder.

I have four of these, because I happened upon them during a buy one get one free sale. The box suggested sharpening them before using, which I did, but I left on the plastic wrapping (I felt it might crumble and fall apart otherwise). I was surprised how plain the packaging is. I have not yet tried them wet, I'll need to do that, because dry the colors seemed unexceptional. I agree with the …Read more

Eye Shadow - Avon - Color Twist Eye Gloss Pen Vanilla Shimmer

I like the color, but the applicator is awful. The product does not dispense evenly from the tube and the applicator itself is hard to work with to make the color even across the eyelid. This will flake off, leaving bare patches, so I am constantly trying to blend in the bare spots with my finger throughout the day. Just totally less than thrilled with this product.

I tried this first as a GWP and I love it. I usually buy it in brown, because I like my mascara to look a little more natural. It goes on nicely, doesn't clump, lasts all day, and I've never noticed any flaking or smudging. I will say I like the brush in the GWP product better than the full size.
