I so love this palette!!! The colors are so beautiful. Shimmery pigmented pinky peach and orange shades. Matte reddish pinks. Gorgeous brownish greys for the crease. Sandstone is beautiful as a matte highlight. Bonus: Persimmon and tangelo make lovely orangey blushes!

Foundations - Posner - Cover Stick Foundation

Apr/26/2011

I have only been using this product for a week, but I am really impressed. It's already hot in my area (in the upper 80s) and I really don't want to slather foundation on my whole face. I usually don't even wear moisturizer on my face in the summer time. But of course, I still want coverage for some areas. I think this is it!

I bought this cover stick in medium (I am NC …

Eye Shadow - REVLON - Illuminance Creme Shadow Quad - Not Just Nudes

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/18/2011

I have been using this brand of cream shadows for years. I can't remember when I bought Not Just Nudes, but the quad has lasted a long time. I mostly use the darkest shade and the middle two shades.

Why I love them: I use these over UDPP to create a sticky base for pigments and shadows that are sort of powdery ("flecky" is a better description). The cream shadow helps …

Palettes - Sleek MakeUP - Graphite

Feb/05/2011

I waivered about buying this palette thinking "How many silver/gray eyeshadows can one woman need?" But I am glad I bought this palette! It was part of a lot with 2 other palettes and other Sleek stuff on ebay. There isn't as much variety in shade as with other Sleek palettes, but I love the shadows that are in it. There is a lovely midnight blue, pretty purples and several shades …Read more

I love, love, love this palette! I have 4 other Sleek palettes, but this is one that I can use everyday. Perfect for days when I want to stay neutral, but you can also smoke it up with the darker colors for more dramatic looks. I get so many compliments from the looks I create with this palette. I really like the lighter matte shade (3rd from the left) as a blending color and as a transition …Read more

Cleansers - Yes To - Yes To Cucumbers Face Cleanser Towelettes

These towelettes are not quilted (which helps to pick up makeup residue) and the texture is pretty rough on my skin. After using I feel a burning sensation around my eyes. I won't be buying these again. The store brand towelette at the drugstore is quilted, soft, non-irritating and cheaper.

Cleansers - AVEDA - Botanical Kinetics Purifying Creme Cleanser

Jan/30/2011

After I got my eyebrows waxed, the esthetician suggested some products for me. I was all stocked up on moisturizer and I don't use toner, but I was in need of a new cleanser. I had high hopes for this one, but after the first use my skin didn't feel clean. It has the consistency of creamy moisturizer and there is no foam at all. It is truly like putting on lotion and rinsing it off. I …Read more

Eye Shadow - REVLON - Illuminance Creme Shadow Quad - Va Va Va Bloom

Created with Sketch.

Jan/19/2011

This was one of the first eye shadow quads I ever purchased. I liked blending the colors and experimenting. I found it easier to use than powder shadows before I had any brushes. Now that I have a few brushes and have learned some techniques, I mostly use these as a sticky base over UDPP with my powders and pigments. They help my eye shadow last all day. For a quick look when I am in a rush, I …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - LUSH - Angels Delight Soap

Jan/18/2011

I really liked the smell of this Lush soap. So fruity and yummy. It lathered well. I don't see or feel any confetti, but maybe I got a chunk that doesn't have it. There is a golden arch on the soap that looks like it has glitter in it, but it isn't abrasive at all. I took one lippie off because the soap didn't leave my skin feeling soft. I didn't feel that the soap was …Read more
