LOVE. This is my new HG foundation. I was hesitant upon purchasing it, because I generally do not spend that much on foundation, but I figured it wasn't too far from the $28 I usually spend on MAC Studio Sculpt, so it was worth a try. I LOVE THIS. I do not have to use any concealer when I wear it and it lasts all day. I purchased this in Fresco (I'm an NW20 in MAC) & wow, the color couldn't have matched my skin any more perfectly. My grandma used to use this before she passed, and so I always associated Estee Lauder with senior citizens, but it is my new favorite and I am sure once I run out if I can afford it, I'll repurchase. My only qualm, is that I wish it had a pump applicator, instead of the screw off bottle. It is easy to get this all over the bottle and on other products, since I do use my fingers to apply it. Other than that & the price, no complaints here!
LOVE THIS. I have tried lots of eyeliners, including high and low end and this one tops them all. It works great, is easy to apply and is easy to correct if you do mess up. The color is also super black which I love. I use this on both my bottom waterline and top above my lashes. Couldn't ask for a better product, hope this is never d/c!
Received this in a swap and wasn't expecting a lipstick that I would end up using so much! I thought it would be too much for my skin tone (NW20), but this lipstick is super wearable. I can wear it if I'm going out, or to play up a minimal make up day. It just looks awesome on and the finish is super nice as well. Hides lines in my lips instead of making them stand out, like some of MAC's other lipsticks do. Will definitely be repurchasing once I run out.
I received this in a swap and am so glad that I did! It is the perfect color for me. I found it less drying than my other MAC lipsticks, after applying this one I don't even need a gloss over top. It is the perfect peachy pink nude and I will definitely be repurchasing this when it runs out. My new HG!!
Blush -Tarte - Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Exposed Tarte Blush

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this blush! I've been using it everyday since I purchased it. I was hesitant at getting it, since it didn't look like anything special in the pan or when swatched, however it has turned out to be excellent for contouring and does not look over done. It is super easy to blend and the color pay off is great. I'm an NW20 and will definitely repurchase this one when I run out.
I received this as a sample at Sephora. This was my favorite mascara at first, but after just a week in a half it stopped working for me. I love how it covers all of my lashes perfectly and the brush is amazing as well, but now when I use it my lashes look great at first, but by the time I'm at the door they are limp and look dry. I have made other samples last much longer, so I don't feel that is the reason. When I first received this and fell in love I searched on Sephora web site to purchase it, but the price is outrageous. It should work a bit better for that pricing. I'll stick with Dior Show. It's consistent and costs me less.
This is currently my favorite blush right now. I saw swatches online recently and had to have it. I'm an NW20 and once this gets built up, it's just gorgeous. The only issue I have is that it isn't that pigmented, so it takes me awhile to really get it to show up. It's worth it once it does, but this could be a bit annoying if you're in a hurry. Love it anyway though! Bought it on amazon for $18.
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Cashmere Glow

This is the best lotion that Bath & Body Works has every come out with - IMO. I don't have to use much at all to get compliments on how great I smell and what scent I use. I just love it and it never gets old. I highly recommend purchasing this.
LOVE THIS. It is the best DS mascara I've ever tried. I pair it with "They're Real" mascara by Benefit and am always asked what false lashes I use. It gives great volume. I highly recommend it.
I purchased this palette 3 months ago and have already used up all of the Copper and YDK colors, which are definitely the stand outs of this palette. I also adore "Bootycall" as a brow highlight. This palette is awesome and I have used it every day for the past 3 months. I love the shimmery colors and it's just perfect! Will definitely be repurchasing soon.
Favorite ES, use almost everyday. I was first introduced to it when I purchased the Naked 2 palette 3 months ago. I've used it so much that I am almost out of it already and will be repurchasing the single eyeshadow. It's the one eyeshadow I can pair with just a brow highlight and I'm good to go. Definitely recommend.
HG Lipstick, use this almost every day. It completes my look and the best part is I rarely even need to pair this with gloss because it has such a gorgeous finish already. I definitely recommend and will continue to repurchase this. No other lipstick I've tried compares.
I don't want to give this a bad review, because it is a fabulous blush with a gorgeous color pay off - however I am NW20 and was disappointed, because it is very easy to overdo. It takes a lot of blending to make this work on my fair skin. I'll bring it back out in the summer when I have more of a tan and update my review then.
Conditioner -Pantene - Daily Moisture Renewal Conditioner
gimmeglamour 12/8/2012 4:07:00 PM
I love this paired with the shampoo. I have damaged, fine hair, but a lot of it so I am very picky with what I use, as a lot of the moisture shampoo/conditioners tend to weigh my hair down so much. I tried this once while staying at a family member's house and instantly went out and purchased it for myself. I still have a huge bottle of my Redken All Soft Shampoo & Conditioner sitting under my bathroom sink, unused because this just does it for me. It has a great scent and leaves my hair very soft and silky. I adore this and will definitely continue to repurchase.
I can't believe no one has reviewed this product yet. It is absolutely fabulous! For $59 you get 45 eyeshadows, 6 blushes, 6 lip glosses, 9 cream eyeliners and 2 brushes. All in a perfectly sized compact palette. The eyeshadows all are wonderfully pigmented, I usually only use UD or MAC eyeshadows, but these are just amazing. Very blendable and a great color selection. I especially like the champagne eyeshadow (first in palette), it works as a great brow highlight and is perfect for the inner corners of your eyes, as the site suggests. The stand out of the blushes, is definitely Petunia and I love both the Lens and Prism Softlights. Both are perfect highlighters for me. The best lip gloss of the set is Gumdrop, it just perfects my whole look and is so glowy and pretty. The only thing I am not so amazed with are the cream liners. Pigmentation and color pay off, is not so great. But, other than that this palette is amazing! I definitely recommend this and almost want to repurchase another one as a back up.
