Eyeliner -Bobbi Brown - Denim Ink Long-wear Gel Eyeliner

This is a great alternative to boring black or brown! This is a nicely pigmented blue/black. It has great staying power and is my new go to. I don't really see the sparkles that appear in the pot..but I'm fine with that. Makes my brown eyes pop!
First of all, the packaging is really annoying. The dripper dispenser is ridiculous! I have to shake that thing like crazy just to get a small amount out. Aside from the packaging, the rose oil smells amazing! So far, I've tried applying it directly to my body - though gave up after just my arms because of the packaging situation. Also, I've tried shaking some into my bath. I've found the bath method MUCH better! It clings on to my skin and leaves a lighter scent on the skin. As amazing as it smells, it's a bit too strong when applied directly. Overall, it moisturizes well and is very relaxing. The only downside is the price tag and annoying bottle. Either way, I'll be using this in my baths for a nice treat. :)
This is the BEST dry shampoo I have ever used. I've tried various powder and spray forms...but this is the only one that leaves my hair feeling/smelling clean without the gray matte cast on my dark Asian hair. The smell is absolutely delightful and I am really pleased with the delivery of this product! The only downside is the awkward shampoo bottle container. Besides that, I love it!
I love this clarifying shampoo. I use this about once a week with a conditioner for the ends. My hair feels so clean and shiny! I also use this to wash out my Nutiva coconut oil that I use as a deep conditioner. Perfect! Fortunately, you only need a fairly small amount for a lot of lather. This is important because this stuff isn't cheap!
First off, to me it smells like a chocolate cup cake. The honey is very faint. That being said, I love how it lasts on the lips. It's not greasy...just moisturizing (maybe a little waxy). Either way, it works. :)
Highlighters -Bobbi Brown - Rose Gold Shimmer Brick Compact

This shimmer brick is from their newest collection and I have to say...I love it! This color gives the most natural "rose gold" glow on the cheeks. It's not overly glittery and doesn't have that shiny-silver sheen which I dislike. Perfect for everyday. :)
Polishes -Lippmann Collection - Stairway to Heaven

This polish is absolutely beautiful with about 2-3 coats over a different polish. It reminds me of a snow globe. The only downside is that it is an absolute pain in the butt to remove! Luckily, the glitter is worth the pain. :)
First of all, I do have to say that I do not like foundations from Bare Escentuals. I found this product though youtube and wanted to give it a try. I apply it with a Sonia Kashuk "small multipurpose powder brush" and absolutely love the result! Looks super natural & instantly brightens my eyes. Also, the new sifter jars are perfect for dispensing the perfect amount.
I've been looking for the pigmented gloss without too much shine. This is it! It's a natural mauve/berry color on me and it lasts quite some time. A bit on the sticky side...but I don't mind.
Super pretty polish packed with golden/pearl shimmer. The formula is jelly-like with decent opaqueness for a light polish. I put 2 coats with more than enough coverage. LOVE this stuff! Edit: Beautiful...but chips easily. :(
I think this palette is beautiful! I've been in the search for the perfect shades of purple. I usually wear neutral browns. The colors in this palette are very wearable and the formula is smooth and highly blendable. One shade is a bit glittery..but for a night out..I could definitely tap some of that on. Love it!
Polishes -Sephora - Sephora by OPI - Only Gold for Me

I use this on my tips for a gold effect for other polishes. It is very pretty, though I wish it distributed the circles more. Sometimes I have to re-dip the brush to pick up more. Aside from that, it's quite nice.
I really like the consistency of this jelly-like polish. It's very pretty over a dark blue...I used OPI - Yoga-ta Get This Blue! and it's eye-catching! Love it!
This perfume smells so feminine! It's a slightly sweet floral that definitely smells like gardenias. When it's first sprayed...it's a bit strong, so I make sure to let it set before I leave the house. When it settles...it's absolutely heavenly! The beautiful (expensive looking) bottle is definitely a plus!
I LOVE this blush! It looks like your typical pale peachy/pink color in the pan...but wears very well! I thought it wouldn't show up, but it does in a very natural/glowy way. Has some shimmer without being too much.
