Palettes - CHANTECAILLE - Olivia

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/15/2010

The colors are in a beautiful purple/pink range despite some photos making them look brown or dirty.

The colors really are great with some matte and some slightly shimmery yet sophisticated - I returned the palette because after applying the eyeshadow, a lot of it landed under my eye and I had to clean it off. I expect this from a cheap drug-store brand and am not willing to put up …

Shampoo - SEBASTIAN - Drench

Nov/09/2010

I use this as the second shampoo because my hair needs washed twice. It smells good, and leaves hair soft enough, I don't always feel the need to follow up with conditioner. The conditioner is nice too.
The only problem is the bottle design is unstable and falls over a lot.

Makeup Brushes - Sephora Collection - Professionnel Platinum Bronzer Brush #48

This is the exact name of this brush - it has a platinum colored handle and is more expensive than the popular black handled version by Sephora. The main difference? Softness on the cheek. This goat hair is simply softer! It feels like a massage treatment all over my face. It's very smooth for blending make up into the skin for better coverage. Such a good price for the size and quality of …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - GUERLAIN - Meteorites Perles Light Diffusing Perfecting Primer

Jun/02/2008

I tried this product in the store yesterday so I can't speak about longterm use (it's new). The packaging is so beautiful, almost reason alone to purchase. The liquid is lightweight and does shimmer once on - kind of like a liquid version of the meteorite pearls in the lightest shade plus primer. Since I only wear powders on my face, I plan to buy this (they were out of stock when I was …Read more

Eye Shadow - Urban Decay - Matte eyeshadow in Narcotic

Jun/02/2008

Normally, I only wear conservative neutrals to look subtle - so this was the first bright color purchase for me. However, it can look very sheer and wearable. I lined my eyes with an almost matching matte eye pencil from lancome - vatuluele. The turquoise eyeliner with this shadow create a pretty look that isn't too wild. Fun, unique, color. Would need to apply a base to get the real …Read more

Highlighters - GUERLAIN - Les Meteorites Ball Powder Beige Chic 03

Jun/02/2008

I give in. I do like this product. If applied lightly, it gives my pale skin a warm, luminous, sheer coverage that I like. I look as if I've taken longer to get ready - but it's faster to apply than bare minerals and much less cakey. Shimmery, but no glittery. The new compact - pressed powder - is less exciting and more expensive - but does solve the problem of carefully opening the …Read more

Makeup Brushes - SHISEIDO - The Makeup Powder Brush

This brush is VERY soft. I wish Shiseido would list which fabulous natural fibers comprise this brush. Feels like squirrel. The head is a little floppy and makes for a sheer, light application. The flattened and slightly angled head does allow more precise application under the eyes and around the features. Good for blending or finishing.

I agree with past reviewers. Beautiful, perfect turquoise color. Matte and classic in appearance. Long stick so there is plenty of product. I add some almost matching eye shadow from Urban Decay in the color narcotic. Very fun for summer.

Makeup Brushes - Sonia Kashuk - Powder Brush

This a perfect substitute for expensive department store brands and will suit a lot of women. It's a good value and does the job well. I use it with pressed and loose powders. You can use just the side of the brush to apply blush.
Having said this, I prefer an even softer bristle. This brush does shed about 1 hair every other use. I have to pick it off my cheek. After a year, the brush …
