I really like this product. I also bought it on an airplane, after forgetting to bring lipbalm with me. I have very full lips, so I didn't buy it for any "lip-plumping" qualities--I just bought it to keep my lips moisturized. And it did a very good job of that. I have super, parchment-dry lips (a condition that runs in my family), and I was pleasantly surprised by how well this …Read more

Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Don't Be Shy from Barbie 2007

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/12/2007

As others have described--a bright, clean bubble-gum pink with just a faint hint of shimmer (really more of a sheen). I initially had no interest in this product, as it looked like it would be too bright and garish on my fair, yellow-toned skin (I am usually the second lightest foundation shade, about a MAC NC20). But surprisingly, this blush looks just beautiful even on my warm toned skin--it …Read more

Skincare - Face - Natura Bisse - Diamond Cream

Feb/26/2007

This is definitely the best moisturizer I have ever used--and I don't say that lightly. I am in my mid-thirties, and my skin is "extreme combination"--I am quite oily around my nose, but my cheeks and forehead often get flaky and dehydrated. My skin is also "thin" Asian skin, and so I have problems with most moisturizers being too heavy, not absorbing well, or causing …Read more

Feb/26/2007

I love this cleanser. I have been using it for 2 months now, and on my combination skin, it is tremendously effective. I am in my mid-thirties, and my skin is "extreme combination"--around my nose I am quite oily, but my cheeks and forehead are often flaky and dehydrated. I use a separate makeup remover, then apply this directly to dry skin; massage it in for a minute, then rinse. …Read more

Highlighters - MAC Cosmetics - Mineralize Skinfinish -Shooting Star

Aug/14/2006

I am really enjoying this MSF. I am a MAC NC20-NC25 (paler in the winter, a touch darker in the sumer), fair skinned with dark hair and dark eyes. I use bronzer almost every day, usually a matte one (Bobbi Brown's bronzer in light is my favorite). I use this MSF as a touch of accent color in addition to my regular bronzer: a light sweep at my forehead, over my cheekbones, and down the …Read more

Highlighters - MAC Cosmetics - Mineralize Skinfinish in Shimpagne (Rococo) [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/10/2006

I've avoided MSFs in the past because I generally do not like glitter on my 30-something skin. But much to my surprise, I find I am loving all the MSFs in the Amuse collection. Shimpagne is a beautiful highlighter on my skin (right now, I have a slight summer tan, am somewhere between a MAC NC20 and NC25). As others have pointed out, the trick is to use the right brush, and to apply it …Read more

Blush - MAC Cosmetics - Mineralize Skinfinish - Porcelain Pink

Aug/10/2006

I finally succumbed to the hype and purchased this product--and much to my surprise, I really like it. I have fair skin (I am somewhere between a MAC NC20 and NC25 right now), dark hair and dark eyes, and it shows up well on my skin and looks great with my coloring. On its own, it imparts an angelic pale pink glow--but it also works well over other matte blushes to amp them up for a glowier …Read more

Pressed Powders - MAC Cosmetics - Mineralize Skinfinish Natural - Medium

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/10/2006

This is a pressed powder, but also a subtle highlighter--I apply it over my foundation, and it gives me a beautiful, soft-focus glow. The effect is very similar to what I get when I use Guerlain's Les Meteriorites, but this is a better product right now for my slightly tanned summer skin (I am a MAC NC20 in the winter, somewhere between NC20 and NC25 in the summer). The downsides to this …Read more

Eye Primer - T'ESTIMO - Eye Bright Up Base

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/13/2006

This is supposed to be a primer/correcter/highlighter for the eye area. It's a slightly shimmery peach-toned cream that is packaged in a small, convenient tube. The sales assistant talked me into buying this (I was at the counter to purchase some eyeshadows), telling me that it would conceal dark circles and highlight my eye area. Stupidly, I bought it without trying it. When I got home …Read more

Palettes - Bobbi Brown - Pink Face Palette

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/13/2006

I love the concept of palettes--I travel frequently and I adore the idea of having everything I need collected in one convenient case. Unfortunately, I rarely use the dozens of palettes I own when I travel because none of them has the exact right combination of colors I want. Until now. Bobbi Brown's Pink Face Palette is my new favorite: the colors provide exactly the look I aim for …Read more
