I had been looking for the Vice lipstick in Rapture and I grabbed this off the shelf in error. However it was a lucky mistake as this shade of lip gloss (Rapture) is gorgeous. It isn't heavily pigmented so it's a great every day lip gloss for when I don't want to fuss much but just look polished. This is ever so slightly darker than my natural lip color so easy to apply without …Read more

What a lovely foundation. I was quite happy with Estee Lauder double wear but thought I'd give this a try. Love this. The sheerness is great because while my own skin comes through, it is "my skin but better" and doesn't look cakey or anything. It looks like skin but glowy, perfected skin. Not "perfect" as it doesn't cover everything but at this stage of my …Read more

I purchased this six months ago and have been using it twice a day since then on some pigmented spots on my face and forearms. I had Limelight IPL 8 months ago and was using this product to try to fade some spots more and maintain the fading on others. On ones that were already faded it has worked well to maintain but for the still pigmented ones it's been mixed. I also use MUAC peels …Read more

I am 60 and used to have dark brown hair and brows. My hair has faded to lighter brown (not much grey though) but my brows....OMG..they are growing in white. Generally I tint my brows (and lashes) with Refectocil dye. However, they do fade after about a week and that's where this brow gel steps in. It colors my brows and tames them (as much as any product can as I have most unruly …Read more

What a gorgeous lipstick. On me it's a mid tone rosy mauve with just enough shine. The shade goes well with my pale complexion and light brown hair. I don't bother with lip liner with this lipstick, it is easy to apply and I love it as much for every day as I do for a night out. It is pigmented, feels moist/non drying and doesn't bleed at all.

This product has been hyped lots and I caved in and purchased a travel size bottle. I liked it at first, it seemed to clean off all my makeup efficiently. However, once I was done my skin felt like there was a film on my face. I had to go rinse my face with water. I used it a few more times, it was handy when I was on a three day beach vacay but again I hate the feeling it leaves on my face …Read more

I had been looking for a smooth, matte mid tone grey eye shadow and this is it. It's darker than dove grey but much lighter than charcoal. It's a smooth though slightly dry formula and applies easily. It is very neutral, neither overly cool or warm and coordinates well with a number of my other shadows. It is also perfect for a quick, simple look with MAC Blanc Type and grey liner. …Read more

I am a MAC girl but somehow this shade eluded me. I think without really checking it out before I assumed from the name (blanc) that it would be chalky. I had used Brule for many years as a base over MAC Paint Pot (Soft Ochre) but bought this last spring and I love it. It has kind of replaced Brule to be honest and I have gone through many pans of Brule! I am retired so don't wear as …Read more

I have this in Black & Grey. Both are excellent. The black is very pigmented black, the point on the liner is good for doing a thin or thicker line, it is long wearing. I had been using Geisha Ink black liner for a long time and this has replaced it as it is tenacious and also has more pigmented, blacker formula.

The price is right too. For a softer daytime look, I like the …

Disappointing buy. Got it on impulse as I wanted a purple liner. I used to use Bonne Bell pencil liners that were 99 cents and far superior to this. It does not give a defined, pigmented line. The only way I can use it is to lay down a line of thick color above my lashes and blend a bit then do a thin line of black or grey liquid liner (L'Oreal Infallible The Superslim which is awesome) …Read more
