  • Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Compact

    I'm on my third compact of the Bronze color. Not only do I use it as a highlighter for my face, neck, and collarbone, I also use it for eyeshadow on quick makeup days. In my experience, I get the best results when I use it lightly and make sure I blend well with my finishing powder on top so I get the subtle color and highlight without looking like I'm shimmering or overdone. The bronze compact has colors ranging from bronze to pink to purple to white. Makes for very pretty eye shadow. Beautiful results - use a light touch with your brushes and just blend well.

    Bobbi Brown No Smudge Mascara

    For natural looking, full lashes with staying power

    I have eyes that water and I have to wear waterproof mascara or I will end up with black teardrops in the corners of my eyes shortly after I put on all my make up. I spent a few years buying every brand of drugstore and makeup counter waterproof mascaras in my quest to find one that didn't flake off and didn't make my eyelashes fall out. I ended my search when I found this. It's a mascara that gives my eyelashes a very natural, thick, dry, feathery look. Not greasy, pointy and stuck together. It stays put but comes off easily at the end of the day. No flaking off into my eyes, no clumps, no eyelashes falling out. On your quest for a great no-smudge mascara, this one is definitely one to try.

    bareMinerals Eyecolor

    Pigmented, long-lasting, and versatile

    The techniques and tools you use to put the color on will give you lots of options and outcomes with their eye colors. Depending on the look I'm going for, I use brushes of different shapes, small sponges, or my finger. I use them dry for a very light coverage. I pat them into a just-moisturized lid like a cream base then set with dry powdered shadows. I use them wet with an eyeliner brush and create all sorts of colors of smokey eyes, smudging the edges. The ways you can use them are only limited by your creativity and tools. They stay true to their color and last all day and don't budge. On me, most eye shadows turn orangey by the end of the day but since I started wearing these, I have eye make up that looks like I just put it on hours after I did. Their range of colors is quite large. These eye shadows are high quality.

  • bareMinerals SPF 25 Mineral Veil

    bareMinerals SPF 25 Mineral Veil

    Gives me an airbrushed look

    I use bare minerals foundation and have for about 7 years. I try other things but always come back to it. I've tried other finishing powders as well but always return to mineral veil for the airbrushed look it gives. It helps retain the luminous look of my skin without dulling it but provides a thin veil of powder to set my foundation. In my experience, I've found I'm most pleased with the mineral veil when my skin is healthy. For me, the more effort I put into taking care of my skin, the better my results are in getting that airbrushed, healthy, luminous look with my foundation and mineral veil.

    Sebastian Professional Re-Shaper

    Ended my Quest for the Perfect Hairspray

    I have tried countless hairsprays out there, from cheap to expensive. This hairspray settled it for me. I have long, layered, fine, thick hair and live in the heat and humidity. I do not color my hair and only wash a few times per week so having a hairspray that can be brushed out and keep going as well as one that holds regardless of the outdoor conditions without being helmuty or hard is a must. This one does it all. The only downside for me is that if it gets on my skin, it causes me to break out. So I'm careful to protect my face and neck when spraying and that keeps me from breaking out. If you haven't tried this one on your quest for the perfect hairspray, this one is definitely worth a try.
