It's supposed to make you "windburned", peeling, and red. If it's not, you're not doing it right. It's a shame some of you mistook these as signs of a complication and stopped the regime before it really even had a chance to start...as you're missing out.

Lip Gloss - CHANEL - Glossimer - Unity

Everything I wanted MAC's Oh Baby to be. It is that color, without as much chunky glitter and shimmer. I don't love it enough to buy again, though.

Lip Gloss - CHANEL - Mini Glossimer Set

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/14/2004

When I was a Glossimer virgin, I bought this set of universally-colored mini Glossimers. While I love the idea of being able to test four for the price of 2 full-sized (although you can do this for free at a counter), and I'm in love with the thought of toting around a mini Glossimer, this was not what I had expected.

The first color is Jaipur. A frosty pink, it made my MMM skin …

Body Scrubs - Got2b - Paraffin Hand Masque

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/14/2004

Not expecting to get great quality from a supermarket product, the green box of Got2B's hand paraffin masque beckoned to me. So I gave it a try, and am very pleased! The masque, enriched with grape seed and avocado, takes on a slightly gritty texture as the ingredients work to give you a fast and easy salon-grade paraffin treatment. Upon washing it off, I found softer, more youthful skin …Read more

Eye Shadow - CHANEL - Shadowlights- Vega

4.0

Oct/27/2003

Shadowlights really lives up to its name - a product that delivers intense, smoky shadow yet lightens eyes with its illuminating sparkle. Vega is a particularly beautiful shade; it's a brown-taupe infused with silver shimmer. This isn't your typical brown shadow, though. Just by swiping your finger across the product, you can feel the outstanding silky texture - like packed powdered …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Lipstick in Plink

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/27/2003

Plink! has been used by Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, and Pamela Anderson - so I was eager to try it out and see what made it so great. At first glance, Plink! is a light/medium pure pink with silver shimmer - gorgeous! It boasts the same moisturizing, sleek feel that all MAC Lustre lipsticks do, but I was disappointed to find that the color turned a light, silvery Barbie-ish pink on my …Read more

Bronzers - Lancôme - Star Bronzer Bronzing Powder

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/10/2003

I picked up Lancome Star Bronzing Powder in the brush applicator style, not the large compact. I wanted this as not only a bronzer, but a contouring powder that would be slightly darker than my facial skin. This was not it. Not only was the powder slightly lighter than my MMM skin, but it was riddled with sparkles and took at least 10-20 clicks of the powder applicator to dispense any product …Read more

Lip Gloss - MAC Cosmetics - Lip Lacquer -Babied [DISCONTINUED]

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/10/2003

My blonde-haired, tanned friend wore nothing on her lips but Babied one day and it looked wonderful. The next time I was at a MAC counter, I got it. I suppose I neglected to remember how highly pigmented her lips were compared to mine. The slightly milky, light nudish-pink glow that she wore was a very milky opal color on me. Not flattering. Girls with naturally rosy lips will probably find this …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Eyeshadow Lustre - Gleam

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/10/2003

This is my first foray into MAC lustre eyeshadows. I usually balk at the idea of glitter shadows (let alone red-toned eyeshadows) but this shade just looked so pretty on display as part of the new Go Lightly collection. I tried it on and was surprised! It didn't do much to bring out my green eyes, but it enhanced my tan and added a flash of sparkle to my skin. Gleam is not as red as it looks …Read more

Concealers - CHANEL - Quick Cover

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/10/2003

I purchased Chanel Quick Cover concealer in the sandy beige shade Candlelight. This is a wand concealer with a smooth but somewhat chalky feel. When applied over a color corrective concealer (such as a yellow or green one), it helps create a seamless finish. Alone, coverage is decent, but seems like it needs to be glopped/caked on to cover something completely. I find that this shade works well …Read more
