This scented Bathed and Infused In-Between cream is what I wished for in that it matched the CSP fragrance it is created from exactly as I remember. I ordered this one strongly scented, which the company allows you to do. The fragrance lingered a few hours, and though noticeable was not overly strong in my opinion. The In Between Cream itself has a lovely medium consistency, spreads easily …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Unlisted Brand - Bathed and Infused Vanille Abricot In-Between Cream

Dec/27/2011

My first order from Bathed and Infused contained mostly scents I'm already a fan of but in my opinion this one does not dupe the famous CSP it is created from. The In Between Cream itself has a lovely medium consistency, spreads easily, moisturizes fairly well, feels only slightly greasy, and the scent lingers a few hours. This Vanille Abricot scent however reminds me slightly of plastic …Read more

MAC Me Over collection limited edition, A very versatile workhorse of a color, a matte, nudey pink toned coffee milk brown that blends beautifully and combines itself into so many color combinations, rich pigmentation, looks great as an overall lid color, a slightly deepened natural looking crease color, also good for sheering out deeper shades in transitional spots. Well worth the $15 pricetag …Read more

Gorgeous gently blackened deep red polish with a few rich brown tones and fine gold shimmers, seems to almost have an inner glow. Complex, fairly dark, mysterious, and fun to stare at in the bottle or on the nails. Two coats gives excellent full coverage and the polish applies easily, kinda evening itself out as it dries. The brush is not as pleasant to use as an OPI brush though, it's a …Read more

Three or four layers of Playing Koi over a good lipbalm and a glossy overcoat look great over my medium-pink toned NC 25 lips but it's more effort than I care to expend for nude toned lips. Also I try to stay away from the MAC lustre formula since it tends to make my lips peel. I would purchase this color in another formulation however.

When I saw this item and the other Ombres for sale at MAC I thought they were pretty and unique but passed on them because I didn't think they were worth the price, however after watching/reading many raves I became more curious and when one was offered to me in swap I accepted. The handy color gradient does provide a fairly effortless and attractive range of peach tones when stroked …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Top Of The Posh Mega Metal Formula

Sep/27/2011

On me this is a wearable lighter pink with frosty white gold shimmer leaning towards the cool side with decent staying power, but it is sadly lacking in comparison to the buttery Starflash Ego shadow which I normally reach for. Top of the Posh blends fairly, although the color is slightly chalky and the shimmer a bit overstated in my opinion, which doesn't quite match well with my …Read more

I rediscovered this gem yesterday while weeding through my collection. These NC30-ish lips are quite happy with the cool toned frosty silver-mauve of Danse, although I find it dissimilar to Pink Maribu which I also own. I would quickly repurchase this lipstick if it were offered again!

Sep/14/2011

Illicit lipglass, a repromote from the Smoke Signals collection, reminds me of wearing multiple layers of Playing Koi lipstick(which I thought was way too sheer for such a pretty color). I just need to wear a solid layer of lipbalm underneath to prevent my lips from peeling after I've worn it awhile. I also like to wear this gloss in the center of my pout for a subtle highlight effect. A …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Ego Mega Metal Eyeshadow

Sep/14/2011

Ego was a disappointingly weak color in the Mega-Metal collection. I bought this hoping for a veluxe pearl type application similar to it's siblings but even multiple layers over a solid base produced faded looking results similar to some of the mineralized eyeshadows that Mac releases. Sadly the color in the pot I purchased when applied does not remotely resemble the rich looking texture I …Read more
