Aug/06/2013

I really like this cream. I have oily skin and used to have a couple of breakouts somewhere on my face almost always, but thanks to my precious Clarisonic, that is not the case anymore. Clarisonic rocks. Anyway--I love to use MUAC's peels and I use this as my night cream afterwards. Yes I know it has some retinyl palmitate in it, but it works great for me. I have pretty tough skin. …Read more

Lip Liners - Beautique - lip liner -Natural

Jul/24/2012

I was in the checkout line at Sally's and I happened to see this lipliner. It was the very last one in the color "Natural" and it looked right up my alley so I bought it.( For like $4 or something like that.) The pencil is the kind you have to sharpen but they give you a VERY long pencil so you definitely get your money's worth, IMO. I guess the only downside to how much …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Makeup Artist's Choice (MUAC) - Jessner's Peel

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/02/2012

Given all the reviews on the glycolic, lactic, TCA and other MUAC peels I'm surprised that no one has reviewed their Jessner's Peel. I must say that I love it ! My skin is pretty tough--I can use the strongest tretinoin, retinol, etc and I use the 50% glycolic peel for 20 min, 3-4 layers no problem. I did purchase the 24% TCA from another site --i think it was Esthetician's …Read more

Eye Shadow - NYX Professional Makeup - Single Eye Shadow - Herb

Jul/23/2010

For me, NYX single shadows are kinda hit and miss. I just bought Morocco which is a deep gorgeous purple when swatched on my arm, but when I applied it yesterday it was a little "patchy" and a bit disappointing tho I wound up with a nice look, but I'll still give it another chance. Anyway--onto this gorgeous HERB shadow. It's a beautiful army "OD Green" …Read more

Eye Shadow - bareMinerals - Glimmer of Devotion

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/15/2010

This is a beautiful glimmer if you know how to wear it. It's a mauvey burgundyish shimmery shadow that looks great in the crease/outer lid. Today I have it on (over my HG primer /base Mac Painterly Paint Pot) with Mac Naked Lunch on the inner half of lid, Devotion on outer half and crease and mac Sketch in the deep crease. I must say it looks really good. I have a ton left and don't …Read more

Eye Shadow - NYX Professional Makeup - Single Eye Shadow - Taupe Pearl

Jul/09/2010

I agree---this is a beautiful color. It applies buttery smooth and is nice and pigmented also. It's pretty as a a crease color with something like a light cream or all over the lid and crease as a semi wash and then I put my everyday brow highlight on the top, Mac Your Ladyship pigment, and then I like to use NYX Sparkle Cedar to blend the line between the two. Sparkle Cedar is …Read more

Styling Products - PANTENE - Medium Thick Anti Humidity Hairspray

Created with Sketch.

Jun/24/2010

Pantene I do not see how you can make such nice shampoos and conditioners but make the worst hairsprays on earth. I have tried a couple of others from Pantene and did not like them, such as the Volumizing and one other one that I can't remember exactly which kind--anyway--I saw this one, the anti humidity type, and thought I'd give it a try since I live in Alabama and our humidity is …Read more

Apr/13/2010

I probably would not have bought this shadow if a great MUA friend hadn't said just how much she loved it and how it made her eyes pop. So I bought it and the first time I used it I used it as a wash, all over up to and just above the crease, then I used my everyday browbone highlight, Your Ladyship pigment, and then I used a lightish gold like Retrospeck or something to blur the edge …Read more

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Eye Shadow - Ricepaper

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/26/2010

When I want to do a "natural" eye as i call it--this is absolutely awesome. I like to wear this packed on all over the lid and up to and a little above the crease, then I wear my every single day browbone color Your Ladyship pigment and bring it down slightly over the edge of the Ricepaper, and then I'll add a little something to blur the edge a little more like BE Celetine or NYX …Read more

Lipstick - L'Oreal Paris - Color Riche - Nude 862

Feb/08/2010

I really love this lipstick ! This one, Nude, and Fairest Nude are my two favorite L'oreal l/s's. (Fairest Nude is pretty much like Nude except there is no pink in it.) I love to wear this with Mac Spirited lipglass (my HG gloss) over it. It gives me the perfect neutral lip color to wear with just about any eyeshadow. It's not a light true nude lip color, but it is very very …Read more
