Lipstick - CHANEL - Rouge Coco - Camelia

Pretty springlike pink with a tinge of silver. This is just lovely with my fair, cool coloring. I love to wear it when I wear softer colors, such as pastels. It is very ladylike and "brightens" the face. The Rouge Coco line is wonderful - love the "click" of the lipstick case. No one makes a lipstick like Chanel...

Fragrances - CHANEL - Chance Eau Tendre Eau de Toilette

5.0

May/30/2011

This fragrance is lovely! It is a sweeter, softer version of Chance, but still maintains all of the chic elegance of a Chanel perfume. This fragrance is perfect for the spring and summer, when on the warmest days one does not want to be wearing a strong perfume. This will still make you feel sophisticated and ladylike without being overwhelming. I am normally not a lover of jasmine, but the …Read more

Fragrances - Bath & Body Works - Sweet Pea Forever

I think this is fun and flirty - but sophisticated enough for me to wear in my thirties. It is a happy spring and summer scent... a combination of marigold, gerber daisy and citrus.

The eau de toilette is just lovely. It's an instant pick-me-up. Unfortunately, the lotion does not last on me and the scent becomes kind of stale smelling after a few minutes. I wonder if it's …

Eye Shadow - Trish McEvoy - White Peach Eye Glaze

5.0

Mar/07/2009

I have dark hair and very fair skin, and normally would not gravitate toward colors with "peach" in the name. This is a spectacular shade however -- it is the perfect highlighter to "open up" eyes and complements any other shade. I look more awake after I put this on. Any hint of peach in the shade only mutes it to make it blend better into skin, rather than a stark white or …Read more

This is an amazing eyeliner! The brush application is so unique for an eyeliner, but so easy to apply! The color is a gorgeous dark pewter. I love to wear this with grey or silver tones on my eyelids. It makes my brown eyes pop. I hope Trish adds more colors to the liquid definer collection!

Eyeliner - Trish McEvoy - Intense Gel Eyeliner - Deep Aubergine

I normally find powder liners difficult to apply and prefer the ease of a pencil, but this "cakier" liner is fantastic. You get great pigment and definition instantly so that you do not need to keep going over your eye. This color is a beautiful deep plum that is dark enough to truly add definition to your eyes and lashes. The color holds all day and does not flake. I am a brown …Read more

Concealers - Trish McEvoy - Flawless Concealer

I thought I liked my concealor until I tried this! Wow! The brush applicator makes this easy to apply and blend. The coverage is excellent, but the product blends nicely so you do not look heavy or cakey. I am a fair-skinned gal and use #3. Be sure to try this on in the store to find the right shade for you. Once you do, you will be happy!

Mascara - Max Factor - Volume Couture - Rich Black [DISCONTINUED]

Nov/23/2008

I came onto Makeup Alley to find rave reviews for a drugstore mascara. Since I replace my mascara every three months (as recommended), I don't want to pay a lot.

I don't normally use Max Factor, but this easily replaces my favorites from L'Oreal, Revlon, and Clinique. It lengthens AND thickens perfectly. It is easy to apply and build extra coats with absolutely no …

Palettes - bareMinerals - Ruby Collection

I am a very fair skinned, dark haired "Snow White" type. I don't use BE (I have used some of their eyeshadows before), but was very drawn to this collection.

I adore the Rose Radiance. I am so fair skinned that I use mine as a blush rather than all-over color. The eyeshadows are very pretty too. I find the Golden Ruby particularly pretty--the gold tones seem to pop …
