Y'all....this is great. I thought I would never get on the EL bandwagon. I thought there were so many superior foundations for my skin. Hello. I have been on an EL high lately! And this foundation is such a surprise. I really didn't believe all of the hype. But it IS great. And it DOES last---oh my gosh---all day. The amazing thing is, the way it makes my blush last all day! …Read more

Blush - Tarte Cosmetics - Amazonian Clay Long-Wear Blush in Tipsy

LOVE, people. It IS the shade of Tipsy! Just in a matte version. The compact is so cute, too, in the exact shade of the Tipsy Stain packaging.

Okay, I am excited about these. I am def. getting more. This baby really is a true MATTE blush but it does not look flat on the skin, and I appreciate that. Sometimes you just need a good matte blush in a bright popping shade. This one …

Blush - Urban Decay - Afterglow Glide-On Cheek Tint in Fetish

I really like this new tint in the cool dusty-pink/ light rosey shade of Fetish. Are you familiar with the Cover Girl blush Natural Twinkle? In my opinion, this is what a cream/gel version of it would look like. Swatched heavily on my arm, the CG blush is very similar. Anyway, it is very flattering. Pretty long lasting. (Holds up like others in this category). It looks gorg and natural …Read more

I love these. I have 9, I think, total. They have a fantastic texture (so light, glide on) and a gorgeous range offlattering shades. They do not bleed, they do stain a bit---which I love---because it means lasting, and they have no irritable scent or taste. They are also inexpensive. The top is hard to get off----only real complaint.

Eye Shadow - Bobbi Brown - Metallic Long-Wear Cream Shadow in Moonstone

You know, I really like this one. It is one of the more sheer shades, as you don't get a dense shade of green. It is more of a golden green, sheered out. I do like this one on it's own for a subtle wash, but I mostly find that this one looks fantastic over shadows applied first. I think some of these are intended to be layered over more opaque eyeshadow bases to get the best …Read more

Eye Shadow - Bobbi Brown - Metallic Long Wear Cream Eyeshadow in Goldstone

Jul/20/2010

I love this one. It is one of the more "dense" metallic creams, in my opinion. Not just glitter in a clear base. Again, the shade is a perfect complex gold, not just blah gold. I thought, I have soooo many golds, and the Shiseido Hydropowder, etc. etc. in cream shadow form, who needs this? But......it is different enough to get, and I love the sparkly look these give my eyes. SO …Read more

I'm starting to think Bobbi Brown is a god. Not THE God, but *a* god. (Hee hee hee, from one of my fave movies, Groundhog Day.) ANYWAY! This shade is such a surprise. Again. Who knew? It looks so blah in the pan, so *off* on my blush radar upon first consideration.....but it is *genius*. Just a gorgeous (to my eye) more "silvery" brown, as opposed to the constant …Read more

Cleansers - Bobbi Brown - Soothing Face Cleansing Oil

2.0

I agree with the previous review. DHC is by far the best cleansing oil out there, and I've tried a few. This does not improve my skin (i.e., I noticed blackheads reduced, pores cleaner with consistent use of the DHC.....) nor does it rinse off the way I like. Not worth the price. :(
