It appears that I may be the only person to have ever purchased this 2008 palette that wasn't thrilled with it. Perhaps the 2009 palette with the same name was more impressive. The shadows are all lovely shades, but with the exception of espresso, the pigmentation was practically non-existent for me (NC20/NC25). Each of these is dense, hard and did not blend nicely even after trying a …Read more

Lipstick - MAC Cosmetics - Sparks Can Fly

I wish that I had written a review when this was attainable. Sadly, it was short-lived and I was only able to purchase two. MAC By Request Collection for Fall 2012 should have offered this color as an option to voters. This is truly a MLBB lipstick. Mauve-pink-slightest gold shimmer-hint of brown. I'm NC20-NC25 and this shade goes perfectly with every look imaginable. The only lipstick …Read more

Thank you to all who have taken the time to write such descriptive reviews of this. This beautifully feminine fragrance is what I had wished for Chanel No. 5 to smell like on me - gentle floral and classic. I am delighted with this purchase and if there was such a thing as a "crush" on a fragrance - this would be it. J'adore, Bvlgari Omnia Crystalline and Chanel Chance Eau Tendre …Read more

The color is absolutely beautiful - a nice, but somehow neutral, plummy-pink-mauve that's not too dark. I would think that this would look nice on most complexions. The drawbacks are the fragrance and taste. They are a whole new level of nasty. I'm told it's black licorice which, in my opinion, is just SO wrong to use when creating a lipstick. The sword on the lipstick is a …Read more

I echo every single statement made in the previous review. This is my HG lipstick and that's coming from a lipstick fiend. I am NC20 and this shade is so versatile that it can be worn alone if you need to make a quick dash somewhere and don't have time to put on makeup or it is elegant enough to polish off a look for a formal setting. It is a medium-deep pinkish rose. It is a guilty …Read more

I have tried them all....or so it seems. No matter what I try whether it be drugstore or high-end mascaras, I always go back to this. I don't have problems with clumping, running or flaking. I do have volume, length and separated lashes with only 1 coat. I do 2 if I'm trying to make it a little more dramatic. It is more than I would ideally like to spend on mascara, but if you …Read more

This applies beautifully. It was everything I wanted in a mascara as far as volume and length. Perfect!!....until....I went to a luncheon where I didn't know many people. When I left, I looked in the mirror and had total panda eyes!!! Need I say more? I was horrified. Had my friends been there, they would have told me that I looked like I had been crying and to go fix my makeup. It …Read more

If Myth works for you then this should too. If Myth was awful on you, then please read on...With my coloring (NC20) and possiby age, I looked positively DEAD. I would have scared anyone who came in contact with me. After many tries with different liner combinations and glosses, I literally broke off the lipstick and tossed it in the garbage so that I can B2M this tube. Myth had the same …Read more

With my coloring (NC20) and possiby age, I looked positively DEAD. I would have scared anyone who came in contact with me. After many tries with different liner combinations and glosses, I literally broke off the lipstick and tossed it in the garbage so that I can B2M this tube. Creme d'nude had the same result. High Tea, Blankety and Hug Me are much better suited options for me and …Read more

Honestly, I can't imagine a skin tone that wouldn't be flattered by this gorgeous lipstick. I've had a weakness for Chanel lippies lately and this has strengthened that trend. I would describe this as a "safe" red even though it has quite a bit of a pink undertone - think 2/3 red + 1/3 pinkish-beet. This is a color that you can wear to work (yes, even bankers) and wear …Read more
