Absolutely AMAZING! HG!!!! This is the best quality makeup product that I have ever bought for reasons which I will explain below, so the price ($42) to me is very well justified. I had my first tube for about 9 months before purchasing a new one. You only need about a pea sized amount, to get all day flawless makeup. The product itself has great "slip" and spreads like a dream. It has …Read more

Treatments (Face) - bareMinerals - Rare Minerals

Jan/20/2010

I used this product religiously for a month in conjunction with my normal skincare routine as directed by the instructions. While it was great for breakouts and cleaning out my pores, I soon noticed a patch of skin near my left temple was lighter than the rest of my face. The lightened patch is about an inch and a half long. It is really only visible under direct light, but needless to say, I was …Read more

Bronzers - NYC New York Color - Smooth Skin Bronzing Powder - Sunny

Jan/17/2010

There's really not much more that I can say that hasn't been covered by the many reviewers. The product is amazing. A matte bronzer that doesn't give a dirty ruddy look to my clients with more fair to medium skintones. What I wish is that this came in a deeper shade for more of us that are darker. Since no such shade exists, for those with tan to deeper skintones, I apply this …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Smoke and Mirrors palette

I'm not going to give a description of the shades in the palette, as they're already all over the internet, but I will tell you why I like this. The colors upon application to the lid are true to what's in the pan, they are not chalky, and they blend exceptionally well. I do think it is more of a neutral than a smokey palette; one that suits all skin tones. I am a freelance makeup …Read more

Polishes - NYC New York Color - In a New York Color Minute Quick Dry Nail Polish - Mulberry Street 212

Sep/16/2009

So I'll admit it...I bought this product partly on the name. I for one was elated when New York Color started naming polishes after NYC neighborhoods and landmarks. I currently have Bryant Park, Chinatown, Canal Street, East Village, and West Village--places in NYC that have a great deal of significance to me. It also doesn't hurt that New York Color created absolutely gorgeous shades …Read more

Jul/17/2009

When I was selecting lipsticks to B2M for at my counter, I told the SA that I wanted something with a little purple in it. We tried Up the Amp and I decided that it was way too bold for my liking, and so this was the next one she picked up. I'm generally an indecisive person when it comes to makeup, but as soon as I tested this on my lips, I fell in love. The way it glided on so smoothly …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - bareMinerals - Prime Time Original Foundation Primer

Jul/08/2009

I tried, but I just cannot get down with this product. I do love the consistency and the way it feels on my skin. But contrary to what it is claimed to do, my pores were not minimized...if anything they were accentuated, like craters! I was so disgusted. And instead of my bare escentuals foundation lasting long and true to color, the primer faded it. I nearly shrieked in horror when I noticed …Read more

This brush has seriously changed my eyeshadow application. Application is now a breeze... not only does it take less time to do my eye makeup, but it looks even better now than before! the bristles are soft, yet thick and stiff enough to really place eyeshadow well into the crease, softening harsh lines in a flash. it's a very versatile brush...I use it for lid color, crease color, outer v …Read more

Jul/07/2009

Have been using this off and on for 2 months. MAC NC50 for reference. Got this in Caramel, which is a little too yellow for me...Cappuccino would probably be a better match. I got the formula suited for combination/oily skin. I love the SoftFlex in the foundation because of the subtle illuminosity it gives to my skin. I like that this is light to medium coverage. Can be buildable. It definitely …Read more

Loose Powders - bareMinerals - BareMinerals Tinted Mineral Veil

5.0

Jul/07/2009

Unlike the regular mineral veil, the tinted mineral veil is great for tan to dark skin tones, as it adds a subtle hint of a warm tone to the skin. Like the regular mineral veil, it sets the foundation perfectly, giving my makeup a flawless appearance and absorbing oil throughout throughout the day. I can touch up with this as necessary throughout the day without worrying about my makeup looking …Read more
