Mineral Fusion - Fresh Face Starter Kit Review

MAC Cosmetics - Halloween Mask Attempt

MAC Cosmetics - Halloween Mask Attempt

Well, I tried! If I were to attempt it again, I would start off by actually looking at the face chart rather than going by a day-old memory. This type of makeup is not my forte, but it was fun to try.  I spent about 10-15 minutes doing this one - I'm sure more time (and a steadier hand!) would make...

When did you first start loving makeup? How long has your love affair lasted? Did you start off as a little girl playing with your mother's makeup or has it only been a recent discovery?

Our first cleanser on the chopping block is Renee Rouleau's AHA/BHA Cleansing Gel, which was actually the winner of Allure's Best of Beauty 2007 "Editor's Choice" award. I was skeptical about a cleanser with jojoba beads really working as a makeup remover, but it's actually quite efficient in doing...

MAC Cosmetics - Alexander McQueen Review, Product Photos, and Swatches

MAC Cosmetics - Alexander McQueen Review, Product Photos, and Swatches

Overall, I found Alexander McQueen to offer some lovely colors that don't quite exist in the permanent consumer line, but with the eyeshadows and paint pots nearly identical to each other, this might be one collection that you'll be able to pass a little more easily. All the colors were rich, and...
