I tried strawberry ice, a shimmery watermelon color which looked yucky on me. I looked so washed out but on the plus side this stuff lasts! and is really cheap and its faint smell (like strawberries) didn't make me want to gag. So I will buy again just in a different color.
Most people use the liners as well, eye liners, but with this color (#649, a mahagony brown) I had to try it as a brow color and it's perfect. Matches my hair color perfectly and doesn't look waxy or un-natural when use light feathery strokes. And at .99, its a repurchase.
I bought #059B- a pale shimmery white/ silver. Yuk! Most people complain that the liners are too hard - this was too soft! It came off in clumps.
Love this liner. So creamy and stays put! I line my lips with this and top it off with a pale pink gloss and have perfect healthy happy looking lips! Not to mention its dirt cheap (.99!) Love it - My lip staple.

I wanted to like it but just could not. It's a strange product, at least for me, because it was greasy but sort of powdery/chalky at the same time. No thanks.
Personally I think it is far too much money for such a basic powder. Looked "pasty" and powdery. No thanks.
I love this stuff! I have strange, mixed up skin - it's sensitive, acne-prone and combo, but this stuff didn't leave me greasy or break me out. It is now my staple for makeup removal.
I love this stuff! I have been using it for about 5 years. If you are not really a lipstick girl or a sticky-heavy lipgloss girl you will love this light glossy balm that has just a hint of red-brown tint. Smells just like the drink! A great find!
I so wanted to love this concealer. Listen to this, "It's primer, concealer, foundation and treatment moisturizer with Vitamins A, C, E, K & Rose Extract! With regular use - lightens dark undereye circles, evens out skin tone an dimishes fine lines," - Doesn't that make you fall in love with it? But as soon as I applied it to my face reality crept in! Pro's: The neatest package ever, so simple and clean - it's like Stila lipgloss with built in brush but with concealer in it. I choose #1 (out of 4 shades),a good color for my light-yellow skin. Con's: This is not the concealer you are looking for if you have dark undereye circles or have little spots here and there because the coverage is just too darn sheer. Not only that you must! set with powder or it's long gone even before you step out the door. It is better suited to someone with slight imperfections such as a mild ruddiness or faint undereye circles. I'm going to use it as primer for now, but for 22.00 I'll save my money for something with more pigment, less hype next time.

It's okay. It's strange because it says it dries to a clean matte finish but left a dewy finish. I was hoping for a bit more coverage, this is sheer to medium, I like maximum so I don't have to load up on products (foundation, concealer & powder). I had a zit on my cheek and I didn't really notice any blemish fighting properties.
I bought Champagne Chill which is a pale shimmery gold-bronze liquid. Which acts more like a highlighter to olive skin and gives a slight tint to paler skins. I really liked this product, they are sheer and easy to blend and look completly natural. If you have drier cheeks this product lasts awhile. I put it on my cheekbones to make them stand out more and to draw more attention to my eyes. In the words of Martha Stewart, "It's a good thing."
When I bought this color I was hoping for some divinely classic red lipstick and what I got was a deep blue-based fuschia (sp?) color. Good if I wanted fuschia, bad because I wanted red (like the mag. said!) But it is a good lipstick - smooth, creamy and last suprisingly well for a cream lipstick.
I like this blush. It is a peachy-rosy-bronze color with gold flecks in it. You put it on and your skin is infused with a radiant glow. Will work on any skin tone and coloring. Note*- Night: use more and following the line of you cheekbones (brings attention to your eyes). Update: Although a beautiful color, I find it doesn't last very long - at least on my skin which just absorbs makeup - and with all the knock-offs out there, there are cheaper subsitutes.
Foundations -Revlon - ColorStay Foundation Stick [DISCONTINUED]

All I have to say is ... Yuk! For a girl who has sensitive, combo- skin that sometimes gets the mean reds I didn't like it all. I was hoping it would be like the liquid ColorStay foundation but better but alas my hopes were dashed. It is sheer, and when I say sheer I mean chiffon is nothing compared to this stuff so if you've got racoon eyes and a case of the mean reds you won't get any coverage. Not only that it feels sort of greasy and feels like it never sets so setting it with powder is a must and for me I want makeup to look like I am not wearing any. Sorry girls, it's a dud.
