Lipstick - L'Oreal Paris - Colour Riche Star Secret Eva Longoria

Very nice creamy, shimmery, sheer caramel color. On the store display photo of Eva Longoria wearing this color and in the tube, this color looks deep, rich and slightly brick/copper in color. To my surprise, once applied, it looked like a medium to light caramel color, almost a nude for me. For reference, I am medium/light in complexion, extremely neutral in coloring. I really like this for an …Read more

Lips - MAC Cosmetics - Beaded 3 Red Lips - Holiday 2006

I tried not to buy this set-- I tried so hard. The last thing I need is lipstick/ lipgloss. But that Casanova lipstick kept calling to me! I finally gave in. I am in love with Casanova-- the perfect soft red with a gold shimmer. It is creamy and lovely. If this were a permanent color, it would be right up there with "O", in my opinion. Dubonnet is a gorgeous Hollywood red, a little …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Amplified Lipstick - Dubonnet

I got this color as part of the Holiday 2006 lippie set. It is a beautiful, lush red. In the tube it looks almost warm in tone, but I would describe it in application as a truly neutral red-- not too warm or too cool. My coloring is extremely neutral. This red works well on me-- doesn't turn into a fuschia, as many reds do, but stays true. It is a bold color-- I usually gravitate to muted …Read more

Fragrances - MAC Cosmetics - Hue - Emeraldaire

I think this fragrance is lovely, not too sweet, definitely not spicy. Very green with rich,earthy undertones and a light scent of flowers wafting throughout. I liked this scent from first note to last. I have not liked any of the MAC scents up to this point-- all too sweet for my taste. This is the first one that really strikes me as 'womanly' in feel rather than 'girly' …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Clean & Clear - Oil Absorbing Sheets

These are 'don't leave home without it' status for me. I am quite oily-skinned and I use these everyday, at least once a day. They suck up oil like crazy and leave my super-oily skin nice and matte. I buy these up whenever i see them on sale.

Blush - L'Oreal Paris - Blush Delice Sheer Powder Blush - Color of Hope

I love this color! It is great for a fair, slightly yellow complexion. The color is a fairly deep muted plum. I apply it with a fiber optic blush brush and it is perfection. Long-lasting and well pigmented. The fruity smell is unusual, but fades fast. Definitely recommend this product.

Fragrances - Coty - Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker

Oct/24/2005

I decided to try this fragrance because it smelled great in the bottle to me. I sprayed it on my skin and loved it. However, the scent did not last on me like most perfumes do (I have oily skin). I was surprised at this. I was also frustrated because, every once in a while, I would catch the faintest whiff of the scent and just be aching to smell more, but unable to. It made me think of …Read more

Polishes - OPI - Canadian Maple Leaf

This is a very complex color with loads of undertones and overtones of various shades ( purple, ruby red, golden brown). A very moody and sexy color just right for cooler weather. This particular OPI polish is quite sheer, so I needed 3 coats for full coverage. Full coverage really helps you see all the wonderful layers of color in this polish. I love it to pieces and will re-purchase!

I love 'Soul'. I use it nearly everyday as my ultimate base/ hilight color. It literally goes with nearly everything I pair it with. It is an easy choice when I am in a hurry-- my no-brainer selection. It has good staying power-- almost a matte effect to it. A very flexible color to have in your collection. I will definitely re-purchase when the time comes. I highly recommend this …Read more

Polishes - Orly - shimmering mauve

Sep/29/2005

I tried Shimmering Mauve today, thinking it similar to an OPI color I love, Marquis D Mauve. They are absolutely in the same color family. Orly Shimmering Mauve is a shade deeper than the OPI color. That is where the similarity ends. The OPI color is a soft, quiet shimmer. The Orly color is an intense midtone warm mauve with a strong almost metallic sheen-- gorgeous for when you want to kick your …Read more
