Brows -BeneFit Cosmetics - Instant Brow Pencil (All Colors)
Tifmcd 6/3/2012 1:04:00 AM
My biggest issue with this pencil is that its too soft. When I use a pencil to do my brow I like to make soft little lines and then use the brow pencil to smudge them SLIGHTLY. This is so darn soft it just SMEARS everywhere. The colors also not flattering.
Packaging: I'll be one of the few, if not only that hates this packaging. It took me a good solid 5 minutes to get the box flap to cover over the top. It just kept popping open! Its a total drugstore rip on the benefit box blushes and honestly... i hate the benefit packaging as well.... At least the new packaging. I like the true box tops but these flap over things are so darn annoying. Brush: This thing is a joke right? In my mind I'm thinking of women who use these inclusive brushes/applicators. Feels like a childs toy. Seriously? Why bother to include this damn thing? Color: This is one heck of a great color. I use the brown to chissel and the bright Coralrnge as an apple color. Very pretty. Products are a bit dusty but blends effortlessly. This is a blush that can be over done but because of its dustynessnessness it can be blended well. I like the name. Fox in a Box. Better than all of Benefits names for their box blushes.
I really like these revlon polishes. The well type design is great because i roll my polishes and do no shake them before applying. The wand size and shape is great too. small enough to corner but not to thick or big that its not accurate. The formula I will agree is thin and streaky. My trick is to apply over a thick white polish. i do this with many of the more lighter Revlon polishes. The color is amazing. It just is.
Mascara -Maybelline - Illegal Lengths Mascara (2011)

I want you to think of all the things that make a mascara bad. Ok. This mascara does that. I'm going to let it sit for a while and give it another try... mascara sometimes has a way of reformulating after air gets to it. I'll update this review if anything improves.
I use this bronzer at night when I want some extra dimension. Its pretty dark on me but perfect for what I like it for. Love it!
seriously? you sharpen this?? I agree with everyone else... what a joke! Yes.. it is waxy... and it moves too.
Blush -Laura Geller - Blush n Brighten Golden Apricot

I don't understand where people are getting anything with this blush compared to Orgasm by nars. This blush is sooo beyond that. This is a sunkissed beach with goddess glitter and glow. Get yourself an amazing tan and pop this on your cheeks. Nothing is more flattering. This is the best blush I own... and I own a TON of high end blush. Price - I think it came in a baked kit of some kind. I like that lauras products come in kits. Kits make it easy to create looks and you get more bang for your bucks. Quality is top notch.
I have another DUO (top shelf) from ME ready line. I used this set once and I haven't pulled for it since. I think my biggest gripe are the darker colors. They're too similar. The swatches displayed as the promo look very different from mine. I have one light flesh tone and 3 browns. Just lacking some dimension.
This is an interesting color. I think to wear this on the lid you have to have the right skin tone and coloring. On many people this color could look like you've made someone very mad and they became aggressive. Its an ok color.

Just purchased the supersized bottle with the pump off qvc. I've been using this for the last year during my skin care voyage. I've tried new products but always go back to this. This is my makeup remover. My wash. I use it with my clearisonic so it exfoliates.
Moisturizers -Philosophy - Hope in a Jar - for all skin types

This is a good moisturizer. Its pretty expensive though. It does leave my face feeling glowing. MY big gripe with it though is that while It didn't cause big cystic pimples like I normally get it did give me these little puss filled white heads. I've use the `1 month supply I had and I've discontinued use.
This is my favorite everyday blush. I'm pretty sure this was a part of mac's many LE lines. BECAUSE of that I had a major panic attack when my cat knocked over my nude blush palette and when I began to pick it up... blooming was everywhere. I restored some of it with the old fashion alcohol method. Textures not as good. :/ Very sad it wasn't something I could vote on for the new vote for your favorite LE thingy mabob.

I use this brush for my eyebrows every single morning. I've gone through a lot of angled brushes for my brows and I'm done with my search at the mac 266. Its real hair so the way it applys espresso powder for my brow is super. You wont regret this buy!
Warm medium light skin tone. Makes me look dead. Dark hair. Light eyes.

I never wear this. I bought because I read these reviews... and I never wear it.
