Mav- I've heard great things about Shiseido's Pureness line, but the SA at Shiseido told me that this may be too harsh for me other than the summer. Do you use this line year round? How do you like it?

Hey, I've lurked awhile after the switch-over from The Nest. I'd like to play!
MAKEUP Foundation: was a loyal Bare Minerals user, just recently purchased Mac Studio Fix in NW22 and I like it a lot. The Garnier BB cream is ok if I use concealer and powder with it. I generally use it when I'm running out quickly for a short amount of time.
Powder: Bare Minerals Mineral Veil
Concealer for blemishes: Benefit Erase Paste
Under eye concealer: Benefit Erase Paste
Eyeliner: L'oreal Smoldering Kohl
Mascara: no holy grail but Cover Girl Lash Blast and Maybelline Full N Soft are pretty good. So is the old school Cover Girl Great Lash
Eyeshadow: I love Darling Girl and Fyrinnae (indie -online only companies, but well worth it. The eyeshadows are much cheaper than high end brands even with shipping and the colors are much more intense than any brand I've used), Mac Vex, Wet N Wild Comfort Zone palette and Silent Treatment palette
Blush: No holy grail but I am enjoying NYX Pinched and Darling Girl Boardwalk Blush
Bronzer: no holy grail but I like Bare Minerals Faux Tan Matte powder. Cargo Sunset Beach is pretty nice too (bronzer, blush, and highlighter mixed, but can be used separately).
Highlighter: TheBalm Mary Lou-Manizer, also NYX Nude Pigment
Lipstick/stain/gloss: no holy grails, but I like NYX Smokey Look Lipgloss, Victoria's Secrets Beauty Rush lipgloss
I really don't have any hair or face products that I love, so I am skipping these sections.
Foundation - I typically wear BB or CC. In summer, Physicians Formula CC+. Otherwise, Dr Jart, Boscia, etc.
Powder - The Balm Sexy Mama (translucent pressed). To set concealer I will be using Tarte Smooth Operator loose (when the rest of my Benefit Powderflage is finally gone).
Concealer for under eye circles - Pur Minerals Disappearing Ink
Mascara - I have too many favs, but off the top of my head are Loreal Voluminous and Tarte Lights Camera Lashes
Eyeshadow - Various (Stila Beauty in the Buff palette, Stila Paint by Numbers palette, or Revlon Colorstay quad in Addictive). Always Maybelline Color Tattoo for a base.
Liner - UD 24-7 liner in Demolition or Zero

Lotion/moisturizer - First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream

Other products in your face routine - Aveeno anti-aging serum (I got this in a product test and I don't think the product has been released yet.) I also use a peel pad once a week (right now, Peter Thomas Roth Un-Wrinkle Peel pad) and want to get into a mask routine also.
