This stuff is quite amazing.

I liked how it felt when I sampled at the store. I used today.. Over my primer under everything else. I can definitely tell the difference.

Reviews here say you could use as a primer too. It REALLLY made my concealer STICK under my eyes. Not drying. Very nice. Only a little bit needed and it REALLY smoothed everything out.

Lip Treatments - The Body Shop - Vitamin E Lip Care SPF 15

This is a 'why bother'.

Its NOT moisturizing, its waxy and it seems to disappear / wear off immediately. I like SPF 15, but this just doesn't even seem like its going on your lips.

I think I might toss it.

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Sweet & Punchy

This was kind of a 'whim' purchase. This color is very bright, but every time I saw it I wanted it. I am glad I purchased it. I am 43, this is not my typical e/s color, but its great as a wash. Its very brightening and not over whelming if applied lightly. I think due to the smooth, not too glittery - shimmery formula, it works perfectly.

I really love this es. I think maybe …

I have the SE version, I know the 'real' one is better but I am going to wait until I really need to get one.

I got this in a kit and didn't use it for a while. I saw TiffanyD use it with cream blush which I think it works really with. One day I tried it with powder. Very nice. I never thought I'd like something more than 187, but I think I do now :D

So …

This is my ALL time favorite MAC e/s and probably my favorite e/s overall.

I think this doesn't get used enough/noticed for a few reasons. Its a Pro color and not so many pro stores around, and its reallllly dark in the pan. Swatch it. You are going to see the most beautiful green. Hunter green as described in other reviews, no sparkle/shimmer, its a matt.

This is SUCH …

Lotions/ Creams - Yes To - Carrots C Through the Dry Spell Deliciously Rich Body Butter

I don't use a lot of body lotions. They sit on my skin, make me feel sweaty and gross, but not this. This stuff is TRULY different.

The consistency for me was like pudding in the tub, which I love. I feel this actually changed the look of my skin when I put it on. Not shiny but just more vibrant, its hard to describe. It absorbs in quickly, like you can get dressed right after …

Dec/06/2010

I have had this in my drawer for at least 7 years. Somehow its half way gone. I think I keep it and use it off and on hoping I will like it some day.

WELL TODAYS THE DAY !!

I finally 'get' the name. Water wax. Its not heavy. I have fine, wavy color treated hair that I usually wear straight or curled, and its layered. I also have bangs that I have kind of texturized …

Eyeliner - GUERLAIN - Terracotta Khol Kajal Intense Indian Kohl in 01 Black Fakhir

Oct/29/2010

I wish I had been able to see this in a store before I bought it. Maybe I should have read the reviews here. This is a LONG time lemming.

The consistency is not what I thought. I thought it would be more like a powdery/cream. Something pretty heavy.

Its not. IMO, its a light, slightly oily - waxy black. Not the blackest black. Easy to use, nice on the waterline, I wear …

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Paint Pot - Indianwood

I own this and Painterly paint pots. I love both.

This is a nice bronze color. I use it alone as e/s a lot. I think you can use paintpots as a base.. instead of UDPP. I do that, and I also use it with UDPP.

It wears nice, the color is nice. NOT the easiest to blend but whatever. I love the color.

Eyes - MAC Cosmetics - Greasepaint Stick in French Quarter

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/09/2010

I've never owned a grease paint stick. I thought it would be like a greasy version of eyeliner with possibly more pigmentation..

WRONG WRONG

Wow. I am not the biggest fan of pencil e/l. I like MAC fluidlines and then e/s applied with a wet brush usually. But THIS - this stuff is nice.
I think the color is nice, kind of a dark goldy brown. But what is really …
