First of all I wish all MAC packaging could be Liberty of London it's fabulous!! Okay so this Beauty Powder is absolutely gorgeous! I'm quite fair and can use this as a blush on it's own or as a highlighter with MAC Liberty of London Prim & Proper blush. None of the photos do it justice, it's a gorgeous peachy pink with gold sparkles, simply stunning!

This blush is gorgeous! It looks more brown in the pot, but on my fair skin it's a very nice dark peach. I have to be very careful as this blush can get too dark for me, so I have to make sure to tap off the excess powder. When used in conjunction with the Liberty of London Shell Pearl Beauty powder it's an amazing duo!!
I have the limited edition Liberty of London version of this beauty powder. I'm quite fair so the Summer Rose is actually a perfect blush for me, it's too dark to use as a highlighter. This is my everyday staple blush and I just adore it! It's the perfect rosy pink.
I LOVE this eyebrow pencil. I have it in blonde, which is a really good neutral shade. The micro pencil makes it really easy to do fine strokes to mimic hair. It's also quite a hard pencil which is also really good for making fine strokes and making sure you don't get too much color. I find that you can really build with this pencil, starting off light and building up to the correct darkness. It also come with a sharpener that fits the skinny pencil.

I love what this product does and how it feels. My only problem is the smell. It has a very heavy perfume-y smell to it that's overpowering. I got used to it but my husband hates it and makes me wash my face as soon as I get home from work, otherwise he won't kiss me! So if I could change anything it would be the smell, because I love everything else about this product. I love it for days when I don't wear face make-up or on days where I wear very little. I like to use it on my cheekbones for a subtle glow-y highlighter as well. I have very fair skin, so this product adds a bit of sheen to my skin which is nice.
I really wanted to love this mascara! My professional makeup artist friend recommended it and said it was her absolute favorite, so I bought it. I don't know if I got a bad batch or if my tube is how it normally is, but it was horrible. It was super clumpy and it flaked as the day went on. Even if I wiped the excess off of the brush (which I hate to do) it was still super clumpy. I gave it two weeks before I was just disgusted and tossed it to the bottom of my makeup bag. Such a shame.
This is a great mascara! I am really picky about my mascara because I get oily lids and most mascaras smudge and make me look like a raccoon or give me dots all over my top lid. This mascara has been great! While I can't wear it on my bottom lashes because it will smudge there- it is fantastic on my top lashes. I've never once had to wipe smudged mascara off of my top lid. My all time favorite mascara will always be Bourjois Coup de Theatre, but my local Sephora no longer carries Bourjois and I've had to make the switch, as I don't want to pay the shipping costs. So far Fresh Supernova has been a GREAT replacement. I'm very happy with it- it will be my new standby! It's glossy, glides on easily and really lengthens my lashes without too many coats.
This is my newest fragrance and one of my absolute favorites! This is the only scent I've worn where I have had people stop me and ask what fragrance I'm wearing. I wear it everyday and always make sure to mist some on my hair so when people hug me they get a wonderful whiff of "The One". LOVE IT!!
This product is amazing for toning your blonde hair- keeping the brassy tones at bay, but what it is not good for is soft, silky hair. This shampoo is very drying so be sure to use a really good moisturizing conditioner afterwards- which blondes should be using anyway. I would buy this product again and would recommend it as well, but with the above warning.
I was wary of this one when I received it in a swap but tried it and fell in love!! It's the color of putty in the tube but on my lips it's the perfect shiny nude! It enhances my natural lip color and really brings out my green eyes!! I've had loads of compliments since I've started wearing it. I will buy this one again!! I haven't tried layering it yet but am sure it will be beautiful. Don't be too disappointed if it doesn't work for you, it's not for everyone.
I received this as an extra in a swap (in plastic tester packaging)and to be honest I thought it was a cream blush (because there is no explanation on the packaging)so that's the way I used it (and loved it!) but now that I've found out that it's a lipgloss I've used it and love it! It's like a cherry stain and gorgeous! It smells of roses and feels great- not too thick or sticky.
I just discovered these little gems! One of my co-workers (I'm a hairstylist) raved about them so I had to go out and buy them. I am an OPI girl but I love these!!! They are ultra shiney (look wet) and don't chip. They make nails look freshly done a week later! I'm sold!!!!

Don't leave home without it!!!!! This leave in conditioner/detangler has sunscreen to keep color from fading as well as keeping hair in good condition. I've been using it for years and wouldn't go anywhere without it!! It is a must on my list!!!
I love this hairspray!! It is perfect for fine hair- it won't weigh it down. I'm on my second bottle of it and I always have it on hand!!

this is the perfect peachy glow! It has a subtle sparkle to it. I've found that you can never put too much on as it is light.
