I, like many, wanted to try this because of Angie of Hot and Flashy's recommendation. After researching extensively, decided on #10 for my NC15 complexion, and loved it immediately! After deciding it may be a little too drying for my combination skin, I add a drop of complexion oil to the 3 or 4 drops of foundation in my palm, and apply over moisturizer and /or skin primer. After working …Read more

I first smelled AG in cream form that a patient had brought with her, and loved it. I finally bought a bottle of the cologne, and love it. As a RN, I can't wear anything overbearing, but a couple of sprays inside my top in the morning provides a lovely all-day fragrance for me! I mostly wear it in warm weather; during colder months, it's Annick Goutal Ces Soir ou Jamais, which I …Read more

I just bought one for myself, my daughter, and future daughter in-law on a whim; the packaging is so very attractive, and the idea of an absinthe lip balm was very unique. I am so glad I took a chance - the tin is cool looking, and the lid isn't a struggle as so many have claimed.
It feels great on the lips, and the taste is unique, almost fruity . I plan on trying others, but will …

Eye Shadow - Bobbi Brown - Long-Wearing Cream Eyeshadow in Velvet Plum

One of my favorites! It is such a beautiful shade, not too purple or brown. I have layered it over Cement and Sandy Gold as well as on its own, and it always looks perfect! A cream eyeshadow brush is invaluable for a nice application. I am almost 60,but the little bit of shimmer is not a detraction at all.

I bought this based upon various reviews; so far I love it. The tint goes with my NW20 complexion; it makes my combination skin look shiny, but after setting with Bare Escentuals powder foundation (a light dusting ), I'm good to go. I love the fact that I am protecting my skin whilst looking better. I am not sure this will work in colder months because of making me look a little tan,but …Read more

It isn't greasy or too oily in the least , and provides an excellent canvas. I'm always weird about fragrance, but the …Read more

I bought my Cement on ebay for about half retail, and it was new. The texture and color is gorgeous and even though I haven't done it yet, it will be nice with other shades. I apply it with a brush, so getting it out of the jar isn't too bad but that could definitely use modification. It seems to wear well all day without any creasing. Would purchase again.

I happened across one of these at Target; the color combo was nice and the price, at under $4 on clearance, made it irresistible ! The next night I wore it out to dinnner with my husband; the matte shade I applied to the crease and a little above, and the shimmery shade I used as a liner. I highlighted the brow bone with BB "Bone" powder shadow. The shadow is so finely milled it was …Read more
