I´ve tried Dior Skin Shimmer in Amber Diamond (since you use it quite often) and I love it. I´d highly recommend it. It gives a very pearly glow, no glittery bits in sight! A perfect highlighter for me.

I recently tried the new Chanel mascara with the bizarre 6 sided brush.

I like it, and both my husband and my friend ‘the Make-Up artist’ both noticed my curled and full lashes…so I guess I would recommend it, but it is really expensive. There are probably others that would do something similar.

What I like about the colour is that it isn’t a harsh black. It makes my eyes look really white.

So, not a ringing endorsement but I say try it at the counter if you are intrigued–I got mine duty free and didn’t try it first.

I’ve really been wanting to try this mascara! I love Chanel’s Inimitable but I’ve always wished it would provide me with a little more volume, this sounds like it may be perfect. Thanks for the info!

Last thing I bought was Too Faced Caribbean in a Compact – Sun Bunny.
I haven’t got the hang of applying it yet lol, without looking like a clown but I’ll keep trying until I get it right.
Lovely colour, would suit anyone olive – dark skintone.

I have been trying Dior’s total capturle (spelling?) series of products. So far so good.
also trying out Clarins’ whitening serum, day cream, night cream, foaming cleanser, scrub, neck cream.

Hm.. yeah I went nuts and bought too much stuff.

I just switched to bobbi brown’s natural finish long lasting (liquid) foundation. It doesn’t irritate my face, has a nice even color that matches my skin exactly (it’s supposedly formulated for asian skin), and looks very very natural while not feeling heavy at all. I think it’s too expensive, but really pretty good.

I recently fell in love with MAC´s mineralize eyeshadows…bought Hot Contrast at a cosmetic counter and just received Heat/Element and Interview/Purple X from a very nice girl from MUA…
I am still waiting on Play on Plums and Two To Glow.
Now, if I could only get my hands on Ether and Mi´Lady… :o)
But I am hoping that these will be re-released with Mineralize some time in the future ( I read on specktra that there will be re-releases of e/s every 6 months for the Mineralize line, so: yay!)..

I’m thinking about swapping my Mi’Lady–used MAYBE 2x on each side. I’m DismalDamsel on MUA if you want to PM me and see if we can work something out!

I recently tried Givenchy’s Phenomen’eyes Mascara. Loved it at first, but after some time of continued use I’d have to say it’s probably not going to replace my mascara staples (YSL Everlong and Chanel Inimitable.

The ball-shaped applicator is cute though!

Just last night I tried Fresh’s Mamaku Night Serum, and it’s really nice! It soothed my sensitive skin instantly and I woke up to a nice soft face. =)

Fresh has some amazing products…when I worked at Sephora I tried like everything they had as far as skin care goes and wow!!! If you can, try there Sugar face mask/scrub…it has strawberries in it mixed with brown sugar..it works wonders and leaves like this nice silky feel to your face, plus even if you have bad acne it doesn’t bother it at all (some cleansers seem to irritate acne prone skin but this actually soothes it) anyways…this prod is great although it does cost $55…you get a lot of product and need just a small amount so its kind of a splurge of the good kind lol

LM Tinted Moisturizer is actually considered to be the best on the market these days! fyi: their foundation primer is also really great too (it works well under ANY foundation…i’ve even used it under maybelline and it works great)

I just got a jane iredale mneralize makeup kit from my school. And i pulled out a loose foundation that matche my skin tone. I have reluctantly switched to mineralize powder for the summer. Anyway, it gives a great lite coverage that I really like.
I also just got my first mineral blush from mac in gentle. And it’s my new love.

I just bought a Bourjois invisible lipliner. I really like it! It helps to stop lipstick/gloss from bleeding, without having to worry about matching the colors exactly.

I just got tarte’s Smooth Operator foundation for their sale. Loving it…the right amount of coverage (medium), goes on beautifully, blends well. It stayed on through a wedding in 90 degree heat!

MACs Splashpoof Lash mascara, because I needed s.th. waterproof.

Well, it is okay, but I search volume, length and definition after applying it the first time. I have to apply it several times to see some difference on my lashes. 2 positive issues, it is really water-, tear- and sweatptoof and it doesn’t clump like my Zoom Lash.

My conlusion. It’s okay, if you don’t have too many expectations and too high standards.

Thanx for the tip, I tried the normalFull’N’Soft some time ago. Next time, I will try the waterproof formula.

I am trying MAC Strobe Liquid to mix with my Stuido Fix Foundation or Revlon Colorstay Foundation (to try and make them less heavy/thick). I’ve only tried it a couple of days, buy sofar so good.

The last I tried was Fresh Green Mix eyeshadow. I bought it the same time that I bought Odd Couple, and I hadn’t used it so much. I love it because it’s green/gold and not pure green, so it’s easy to work into my collection.

I recently tried the new gloss Aqualumiere Party red by Chanel and I absolutely love it!!!
That’s the perfect red for summer time 😉
