La Douce is stunning on hazel eyes. This is one of the missiles in my beauty arsenal, and I'll never be without it. A complex shimmery olive with super pigmentation and blendability. You can do a gorgeous smokey eye with it. I can see this working well for brown or green eyes, too. Sultry and natural at the same time. I think that's a fantastic combination.
If you have hazel eyes, run, do not walk to the nearest MAC counter and plunk down your 14 dollars for this shadow. You will not regret it. This is a slightly shimmery reddish brown, and it will make your eyes come alive. This looks great with Patina or Woodwinked as a lid color. Probably many others. I may try it with Naked Lunch. I like it with Teddy liner, also. So far, this is my fave MAC …Read more
This is my favorite blush. I don't like any that say, "Hey look at my blush!" This really looks like a healthy, natural flush, which makes it easy to pair with many different looks. Nude is a neutral beige-rose-bronze tinged blush that I think would probably work for warm or cool skintones. I find myself reaching for it everyday, replacing my NARS Orgasm, which clashed with some …Read more
I was really surprised at how nice this looked on. The SA threw in a tester of this w/my purchase. I thought, gee, that looks really orange and frosty. But on, it's a nice, sheer glowy golden bronze. There is a lot of shimmer, so I will probably still use a light hand so I don't get OTT frost. But it does remind me of pinup, and even a little bit of a MAC l/s called plastique, which I …Read more
Whoah. For hazel-eyed girls, this is a really good tool to have in your makeup arsenal. I used the ivory shade to highlight my brows, the bronze & gold shades in the crease, and the dark brown as a liner. My hazel eyes look very come-hither, fierce and snake-like. Love it! The blush is a ripe, juicy dusty peach. Totally gorgeous palette. The colors are beautiful, blendable, and silky. Hot on …Read more

I love this lip gloss quad. The gloss is fairly long-lasting and moisturizing, the colors are very wearable (plum, shimmery mauve, shimmery pink & shimmery cherry) & smells great. I like the two little brushes that come with it. I like to use the reddish hue to tone down/dilute red lipstick. The shimmery mauve and the plum are fantastic w/my brown-green hazel eyes. I can't wait to …Read more
Stella is so amazingly gorgeous and sexy. I was unsure about it until I walked around with it on my arm for a little while, then whoah--HG material, big-time. This is so rare for me, because I am super picky. Love it, love it, love it.
