Origins Just Browsing
Posted By: Emerysue on 2014-06-02 20:39:08

I have used this product for several years and I love it. My eyebrows are almost completely white and Just browsing gives them the appropriate amour of color to cover the white but without looking gloppy. It also make my eyebrows look thinker and totally natural..

its oily and SMELLS HORRIBLE. Smudge Pot is revolting, steer clear!

Avon MagiX Face Perfector
Posted By: luxeperla on 2014-04-15 13:32:21

First, I love that Magix can be used for all skin tones - women with deep skin tones often find it hard to find quality products. The beauty of Magix is that you can layer it under foundation or use it alone. Great for smoothing the look of pores, reducing lines, etc. Contact Ebony at luxeperla@gmail.com if you need help finding it.

Gerda Spillmann Bio Fond Cream Foundation
Posted By: CammieRose on 2013-12-30 08:28:27

I have been using this foundation for years. Tried others, but always came back to Bio Fond. Absolutely flawless coverage and looks completely natural. So many colors to choose from, it is easy to find a match.

M.A.C. Paints
Posted By: brazilrebecca on 2013-06-22 11:46:54

MAC paints are fantastic! I wish they still made the plethora of colors they used to! Now it seems most of what they have are neutral/skin tone shades. These are fantastic bases (I still use something like Lorac Behind the Scenes Primer underneath to prevent creasing). They help your shadows show true to color and last all day. They're also great to apply shadow over because they dry to a semi powdery finish and make blending a dream!

Stila Convertible Color
Posted By: brazilrebecca on 2013-06-22 11:43:45

I currently own 6 of these: I went through a phase where I only used cream blushes (that seems to happen every winter). I purchased my first one (Lillium) on sale about 1.5 years ago for $15 and it was love at first use. I have since used that one in its entirety and am over half done with the second. That really says a lot to me about a blush, especially since I own 30+ blushes. To completely use one must mean I really love it!!

M.A.C. Powder Blush
Posted By: brazilrebecca on 2013-06-22 11:39:33

MAC blushes are probably my all time favorite powder blushes. I currently own 21 of them and love each and every one equally. The Sheertone & Sheertone Shimmer are probably by far the best in my book: they go on smooth, have great color payoff, no patchiness, etc. etc. The Matte blushes are my least favorite: I find on my dryer skin that they apply extremely patchy and fade very quick.

Visiora CN Liquid Face and Body Makeup
Posted By: MakeupbyHN on 2013-03-12 19:16:18

I was told when purchasing this product, that it was good for my clients to use on their legs to cover their vericose veins. BS! This stuff is so sheer, and is totally transferable to clothes, I wouldn't let anyone put this on let alone apply it on anyone. Waste of money, over rated, much better products in this class out there. I am mad I'm out the money. Seriously. If you want sheer and thick at the same time, this is the product for you. It does smell nice. ;-) , hence the one star.

Stunning 1950's makeup always appeals to me. I love how she mixed a red lip liner with two other shades to create depth. Cate Blanchett has a perfect peaches and cream complexion.

While this particular beauty breakdown is helpful, it lacks critical information (such as the description of the colors of the products used). For example, the eyeliner is listed as "Creativity"...what color is Creativity? Is it blue, black, dark brown? I assume it's a shade of blue, but I wanted to use it as an example of important information that was left out of the breakdown. Hopefully someone will edit the breakdown to include a color description to accompany each product named. :)

Thanks for your comment! Please keep in mind that make-up colors often display differently in photos and on screen, and that affects how the make-up looks. We received this information directly from the make-up artist, who didn't supply any further details. -Cori S., online editor for makeup411.com

I am very thankful for this Review too. BUT :-), oh so many Girls outside are searching for Elena Gilberts normal allday-look with the golden eyeshadow, the small dark line under her lower lash line and the faboulos, but not very intensive light-red lip colour... I really think it is definitely not the same like in this Review, which has a Special look for the "Mikaelson Ball". Please! Please! Couldn't you give Elena Gilbert another try in her normal daily look in Season one? So many of us are searching for the products. I do for many years now and found only a few of them in interviews, like Koh Gen Do Foundation. We all out there, especially in Germany, will be so grateful for another review! Thanx a lot!

The shadow under the lower lash line looks bluish/purple to me not like Knight Divine. Must be other shadows in this look. Also-this one just has a list of makeup, not how it was done-like you did for Lana Parrilla as Evil Queen in Once Upon a Time.

Is this the same look she wears throughout the film? It doesn't look like she's wearing blue eye shadow, like the Clinique eye shadow duo listed.
