This foundation is the best ds foundations I have ever used. It morphs into my skin with the MAC 187 brush and wears pretty well. I have a good color match in the Nude 3.5 and there were testers available at CVS so that was a plus. I like the creaminess of the texture and the coverage is ample for me.

I have fought with my brows most of my adult life. Fine hairs, sparse hairs, one that is flatter than the other. Brow he**. Recently, any brow product that I owned that I tried to use looked horrible. It was really affecting me emotionally. I hate that. I own Smashbox's Brow Tech, Laura mercier's brow Duo, Mac's Fling pencil, A couple of brow pencils From Milani; you get the …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Smoke & Diamonds [DISCONTINUED]

The Starflash collection has the most beautiful texture. I was pretty much over MAC shadows until this collection came along. Smoke and Diamonds is a great taupey-grey neutral. These shadows apply so smoothly, blend well and are long lasting. I had a slight crease in the contour area after a workout today but that was it. I do wear Too-Face's Shadow Insurance under (less drying to me …Read more

I love these shadows for the smooth, velvety texture and minimal dust when applying. These shadows feel so soft and buttery. I like the Dreamcatcher very much, as a highlighter, just under the brow and for the inner eye area to just brighten and look more awake....hey, coffee can't do it all! Anyway, I have paired this color with Bold and Brazen on the lid and Top Hat in the crease and I …Read more

Moisturizers - Kiss My Face - All Night Creme

I, too, got this as a freebee from drugstore.com. I needed some cream to mix some DIY actives with and so I thought I'd try it, but even with the actives, it is much better as a hand cream. It's just too heavy. I hadn't had any breakouts in almost a year but I got a couple after trying this cream. As I said, use it for hand cream, it is perfect for hands and feet. No face!

To me, this foundation is for dryer, mature skin types. I heard good things about it, so I set out to my local Macy's counter to check it out with the GWP being offered. I was color matched to Bisque, for fairer skin types. I like the way this foundation goes on, dewy with light to med coverage and I set it with Laura Mercier's translucent powder. I don't see any micro glitter …Read more

I have this and I've got another on the way. Lip Lift does a great job of keeping l/s on, priming and creating a matte canvas with which to apply l/s. I agree, it is pricey, but it works! (And there are so many products that don't live up to their claims) Keeps my liner in place as well. Don't forget to exfoiliate your lips tho from time to time-that's the way it works the …Read more

Highlighters - L'Oreal Paris - Bare Naturale Mineral Glow

2.0

Aug/11/2007

Thinking this might be something I'd like as far as highlighters go, I gave this one a shot...a bit more costly than most drugstore products with it being $15.00 at the local Rite Aid, and $12.59 at Walmart. I tried the Nude Glow, but it was more than glow, it was glitter. Too much chunky glitter for my taste. The brush on the top of the container is interesting but it is not soft. The …Read more

Makeup Brushes - Aromaleigh - Silky Smooth Taklon Kabuki Brush [DISCONTINUED]

This is the most amazing kabuki I've ever owned. BE Kabuki, Cat Cosmetics Kabuki and even the Mac 182 can't come close to this brush. The brush is so soft and is great for minerals-they go on so effortlessly with this brush and the pricing is great. I was so tired of my Mac kabuki shedding; it was driving me crazy! Get this brush!

This beauty powder is goregous and I adore it too! It does look beautiful with the Don't Be Shy Blush and I bought a backup. I am leaning more toward the BP's rather and the MSF's because the MSF's have had too much chunky glitter in them and that look doesn't do a thing for me...these are beautiful with a subtle shimmer. LOVE!
