Eye Shadow - Stila - Flare eye glaze

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/05/2003

Darn you Stila! With all the eye and lip glaze knock-offs on the market, I have yet to find one that comes close to the real thing. Flare is an amazing color - if you have green eyes you need it! It makes my eyes "pop" more than any other shadow I own. The color is hard to describe - kind of a shimmery pinky-bronze. It's beautiful, and it absolutely lasts until I take it off …Read more

Foundations - SHISEIDO - The Makeup Cream Foundation

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/04/2003

I recently went in search of a new foundation, because I ran out of my Origin reflecion perfection, and I hadn't loved it enough to replace it. I decided to try out Shiseido because the counter manager is a friend of mine, and I trusted that she wouldn't put me in anything that looked bad.

I wasn't sure about this foundation at first - it's much creamier than any …

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Viva Glam IV

4.0

Apr/04/2003

I avoided buying VG IV for a long time because I kept hearing about how bright it was. After dying my hair black I was on the prowl for pink and berry shades again after years as a redhead - so I decided to check it out. Well, the verdict is in and I love it. It isn't bright at all - just a lovely shimmery berry. It's isn't pink or fuscia on me. I've been wearing it …Read more

Eyeliner - MAC Cosmetics - Ivy Eye Kohl

5.0

Apr/04/2003

I love MAC eye kohls - they're the best liners out there in my opinion. I especially love all the funky colors they come out with. Ivy is no exception - it's a beautiful shimmery blue green. I like to pair it with the new L'oreal OTL powder from the spring collection for a fresh look.

Lip Gloss - benefit Cosmetics - ISland Hot Pots Lip Creme [DISCONTINUED]

Apr/04/2003

When I saw these lurking behind the benefit counter, I knew I had to have one because the packaging was so adorable and retro. I'm a big sucker for Benefit's packaging, even if the products let me down. I decided against the eye colors because they didn't look like they would show up on me and looked at the lip creams.

I settled on Undertow... where'd my bikini …

I have this foundation in Porcelain. I wear MAC NC15 and this is a near perfect match for me. I really like this foundation - I bought it because its designed to be used with a foundation brush. Applied this way it gives wonderful medium - full coverage . It stays pretty matte and doesn't make me break out or emphasize flakiness. If desired it can be applied more sheerly simply by …Read more

Eyes - ANNA SUI - Creamy eyeshadow wand

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/19/2002

These are creamy eyeshadows in a lipgloss style wand. I have #001, a shimmery white, and #700, a shimmery champagne. These are beautiful, shimmery colors. These are not liquid eyeshadows, but rather cream shadows with a thinner consistency. They must be applied thinly or they will crease. I use them as brow highlights so I don't have any problem. This is a nice product, but I wish it …Read more

Lips - ANNA SUI - Wand lipgloss

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/19/2002

Anna Sui is now making lipgloss in wand form. I was happy to hear this because I never cared for the lip gels, so I ordered 2 shades from Sephora.com. I got #701, a shimmery champagne gold, and #300, a sheer lavender with tiny microglitter, similar to MAC Nico. These do have the signature scent and taste. I don't mind the scent, but I really wish these didn't have a taste. I …Read more

I have this powder in the Lavender shade. It leaves a slightly shimmery colorless powder. I like it for night use. It isn't my favorite, but I love the scent and the packaging is very pretty.

Lipstick - LORAC - Sheer Lipsticks

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/19/2002

I love Lorac's regular lipsticks, so I thought I would try Naturally Demi. I have very lightly pigmented lips, and this color did not show up on me at all - it literally looked like I was wearing nothing. I am afraid to try any of the other sheers for that reason.
