My very favorite palette of all times. The second darkest shade (Taupe) ist perfect for a quick everyday smokey eye. Not too dark and not too pale for my NC25 complexion. The second lightest (also a Taupe) works great to blend the darker taupe with the lightest shade (a gold shimmering beige, slightly sheerer than the rest). I use the lightest shade under the eyebrow. Now the darkest shade is the …Read more

Fantastic new fragrance, especially for summer. The scent starts with fresh and fruity notes - mint and lemon according to websites - but I think the fruity notes also smell kind of tropical. It's sweet, but a fresh sweetness, nothing overwhelming. Then the aquatic yasmin comes out as a warm, elegant floral note which is backed up by brown sugar and labdanum. Acqua di Gioia really reminds …Read more

The color is a pale beige-champagne with lots of shimmer and irregular, small glitter flecks in white (reflecting green and pink). It goes on quite sheer, but leaves a high shine finish without stickyness. However, as mentioned the glitter feels gritty and the staying power isn't as good as that of a stickier gloss. In addition the brush applicator is kind of flimsy, but holds a good amount …Read more

The main color is a cool, dark greyish brown with shimmer (I don't really see purple in it, but that might be how others define 'cool brown'). I bought this MES because it looks a bit like Mothbrown, but more shimmery or rather glitzy. It doesn't contain glitter, but the glitz is bigger than the usual fine shimmer or frost. The crescent consists of yellow golden glitter, but …Read more

I stumbled upon this color by chance. I was looking for OPI in general, but the place only had a few colors and this gorgeous gem. I already had two holo glitter polishes, but none of them had such fine holo shimmer, so of course I had to have it... As others mentioned this adds really beautiful hologram shimmer (very fine) to any polish. I've worn it over black, grey and now over a metallic …Read more

Sadly I have to agree with the first reviewer: this palette is lacking in pigmentation. While the colors look beautiful in the pans they don't feel as soft, or distribute on the skin as well as regular MAC eyeshadows (I've been collecting and using them for more than 6 years). Even with UDPP the colors only show up mediocre, I have to layer quite a bit too get the effect I want. My …Read more

I got 2x4ml samples of this when buying eyelash curlers. Yesterday I tried one out of curiosity and forgot to remove my waterproof Dior mascara first... by the time I realized I was already massaging the oil onto my face, so I thought whatever, just try and get the eyemakeup off with this (without knowing that it's supposed to take it off). Now the oil around my eyes turned grey and I was …Read more

Oh well, I'm a brunette (dark brown, Asian) so I thought I should get this too when I bought Redhead MSF. However, it's too dark for me (NC20-25), I also tried the skunk brush #188, but even with that one I have to be careful not to have a color streak on my skin. Maybe I'm gonna wear it for photographs as they wash out colors, but for everyday it's just too much of a hassle …Read more

WOW - best invention since nail polish! I used to have lotsa nicks and dents in my polish because I didn't have any patience to let my nails dry properly. When I woke up the next morning there would be even more damage on them lol. Seche Vite actually coats the polish underneath and makes it flexible while it dries underneath. So if your nail bumps into something the polish will go up again …Read more

When I first swatched this on my hand yesterday it looked far too pale to show up on my NC25-NC30 face. Afterall I'm a Dark Brunettehead (Asian) lolz. Anyway, I read some reviews here just some hours ago and darker people liked it. Since I loved the promo pics of this Redhead MSF before it was even released I decided to get it anyway (from all 3 MSFs this one looked best in the pics). I also …Read more
