This is a beautiful summer color... it reminds me of the tropics. It's a gorgeous salmon color, with hints of green sparkle.

After 2 coats, the color is great, but I can still see through it a bit, so if I have the time, I add a third coat.

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Amplified Creme - Girl About Town

I *love* this lipstick. I normally go for a very understated lip - my staples are MAC Hue and Creme d' Nude. But for some reason, this color caught my eye at the MAC counter the other day and I had to buy it.

This is my new favorite color - I'm obsessed with it! It goes on SO smoothly and stays put all day long.

I've been wearing it with Magenta lip pencil …

I love this mask!!! I have very sensitive, very oily skin, and I've had a long, hard battle with acne.
Whenever I feel like my face has been oiler than normal, I put this mask on for 15-20 minutes (typically, I do this 2 or 3 times per week).
After rinsing it off, my face feels so smooth and fresh, and it really does help with the oiliness. Ive noticed that if I use it at night …

Pressed Powders - MAC Cosmetics - Mineralize Skinfinish Natural - Medium Deep

I love this product! I was skeptical at first, because other mineral makeup (Bare Minerals) made me break out.... but I've had no such problems with MSF. I am NC37/40 - If I've been tanning, the Medium Dark starts to look too light ,so I use Medium Deep over it and it's perfect.
The coverage is so much better than I'd expect from a powder - I have very uneven …

I love this product! I was skeptical at first, because other mineral makeup (Bare Minerals) made me break out.... but I've had no such problems with MSF.
I am NC37/40 and I think this is a good match, but when I start to get a little more tan, it feels a little light, so I end up using this with some Medium Deep over it.
The coverage is so much better than I'd expect from a …

I love my Konad plates! There are SO many to choose from, and the combinations (colors & designs) are really endless.
I always get compliments on my nails when i "Konad" them :)

Misc Beauty Tools - COVERGIRL - Eyelash Curler

Jul/01/2009

I'm shocked to read all of these bad reviews!
I've been using this eyelash curler for years - I've re-purchased it many times.
It doesn't work so well when you first buy it, because the pad is too tough. But After a few uses, it softens up and starts to work much better.
I also recommend heating it lightly with a blowdryer to really set the curl. I hold it for …

This is my favorite red nail polish!!
I normally don't like glittery makeup or nail polish because I think it can look tacky... but this polish is absolutely gorgeous. The glitter isn't chunky at all, and it looks so deep and rich and multi-dimensional when painted on.

I get so many compliments when I wear this.

A must-have!!

I love this color! I went to the MAC counter with no intention of buying lipstick, but I saw the new Euristocrats 2 collection and had to swatch them...
Costa Chic immediately caught my eye. It looks very coral in the tube, but on me (NC37/40), It's much more pink.
It's very creamy and well-pigmented; I'm shocked that it's a Frost!

It's a great summer …

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Aquadisiac

Jun/30/2009

This is a really pretty color - goes great on the inner 1/3 of the eye, with Nylon in the center and Stars 'N Rockets on the outer 1/3.
I have yet to try it, but I think it would be great smoked out with carbon.
The downsides:
-The color payoff isn't great (so use a primer and pack it on to build it up)
-I get a lot of glitter fallout from it
(I'm NC37/NC40 …
