Stone shows up in various formulas in the BB line but they are not all the same colour. This one happens to be exactly like the one in the pot. It is neutral grey brown. The powder one has a bit more plum and shimmer. This is a workhorse for me. Not only is it a great crease colour (so very natural but provides a lot of definition) but it is also a great brow colour. I am fair/neutral with …Read more

I ditched my Clairisonic for these. They came in a 3 pack from QVC (one was a mini travel size which is so convenient). They are effective and cheaper than replacing the Clairisonic brushes. They are recharged from a UCB port. A terrific product at a great price.

A warm orange (not really peach) with soft yellow undertones - so wrong for my fair/neutral leaning cool complexion. So it went to the back of the drawer for ages. It has now been resurrected as an eyeshadow which plays off fantastically with my blue eyes. Yes it's an editorial look but being a mineral formula it is very soft so it blends into my skin so it looks like it belongs there.

This peachy beige colour was a mistake for me but because of a bumpy transaction BB allowed me to keep it for free. I am fair/neutral with blue eyes and blonde hair (hope this helps someone else) but very pigmented rosy lips. This didn't go with my undertones at all. It was fighting me. I'll layer a pink toned gloss over it to pick it up. The formula is great though and I have it in …Read more

Makeup Brushes - MAC Cosmetics - #286 Duo Fibre Blending Brush

Wish I had gotten this when I started to use cream eye shadows. I thought that my fingers were good enough but I was wrong. Some cream stick shadows pose a blending problem so I stopped using them even though I liked the colour - Laura Mercier in Cocoa comes to mind. I now swipe the brush on the stick and it applies it evenly and just where I want it - perfectly positioned. It creates a …Read more

This shadow fits so many needs for me I don't know how I went this long without it. It's a deep cold brown with green and grey undertones. With that description you would think it would be limited but it works really well for a day look. Despite its colour it is a soft smolder and fits in well with a "no make-up" look. Sets off blue eyes amazingly well, by bringing …Read more

This is the most neutral, medium intensity brown I have found. I have blue eyes so most of my shades are cool but a warmer shadow is a nice contrast and really makes them stand out .... but not too warm. This shade fits the bill and the formula is silky and goes on like a dream, really helping me to get a fantastic look in no time. I use this all over the lid and slightly beyond the crease as …Read more

This is a reformulated version and it is not performing as well as the original one. The original one was dispensed as a foam and used weekly, it was amazing. This one has the same potency but is a gel-like fluid and it just doesn't do the job. I am perplexed. I thought of calling the company but you know they'll just say it's the same thing blah, blah. I'm really …Read more

Have you missed Ojon? Well it's back! Now under the name Tweak'd but more on that later. Super hydrating with bounce and shine for days. My hair so needed this. I picked it up at QVC in a 3 piece kit that was shampoo, conditioner and hydrating balm and the products contain dhatelo seed oil which is found in the Himalayas. The shampoo does not have sulfates and it lathers really …Read more

These are chubby liners which do double duty as shadows. The consistency is awesome - the smoothest liner I have ever used. It practically applies itself which is giving me a great look in seconds. I even forget I have crepey eyelids with this product. They aren't billed as long lasting but I find they do stick around throughout the day. The colour selection is very good - I got electric …Read more
