Blush -Unlisted Brand - Tina Earnshaw - Rosemarie Blush Palette

A big rave from me on this blush trio! As the other reviewers have said, this comes in a clear plastic palette, and it has three separate rectangular pans of color. The first one - Orchid - is a very bright, almost neon pink. It's along the same lines as Nars Desire. I get a wonderful glow from it. The second one is called Pinky Pink, and it looks very much like MAC Lipstick in Cosmo - a mocha pink. The third one - the name slipped my mind - is darker, more of a plummy brown. All three shades are super pigmented and very silky. I just touch my brush lightly to the color and blend on my cheeks. I am very pleased with this, and I would gladly recommend it!
Ooh, I love this! What a gorgeous shade! It's.. hard to describe though - it's pink, but peach and taupe, too. Almost like a very pinky beige. Not too dark, and very shimmery. Excellent to warm up other colors, I love wearing this with Nars Bellissima duo which on its own can look a little harsh on me.
Just trying out a sample of this, and I know right now that I won't buy it. It's a fairly strong floral, with some fresh notes, and while that's nice.. it also has a very distinct note of cigarette smoke. Very. It feels like when I've been around a lot of smokers. So, no, not a winner.
I adore this on my fiance! It's one of the sexiest scents ever, even though I do agree with the other reviewers: it's sweet. Very sweet. Still, it has a bite to it, and it's SO yummy.

I am so incredibly in love with this fragrance. It's a wonderful spicy sweet cinnamon blend on my skin, and a soft vanilla drydown - I can still smell the cinnamon though. It wears REALLY well on me. I'm not happy with the new style bottle though, but that would be the only thing I'd change about this wonderful fragrance. Love it!

This is great! I agree with the other reviewers. The only thing I could have wanted - well, maybe a LITTLE more pigment would be nice. Still, it makes my skin looks flawless and glowy, and it feels very soft and fresh.
This is so excellent! Hands down the best primer I have ever tried - and I've tried most of them. This comes in a squeeze tube, and is very easy to use. The product itself is a peach-colored gel, fairly thick. It feels a bit strange to put on, almost oily, but it's not oily at all. It makes my skin silky smooth, but the real feature is that it grabs on to your foundation, blush and anything else on your face, and it makes it LAST! I wore my usual foundation on top of this, and it lasted for more than twelve hours. I strongly, strongly recommend it! If there's one thing I'd change about it, it's the scent which today is fairly strong. However, it's pleasant and goes away fast, so it's no biggie.

I love this so much!! It is incredibly pretty and versatile. I wear it in many combinations - either more elaborate ones, or just one or two colors. They all go very well with each other. Qualitywise they are excellent, but a little sheerer than you'd think from just looking at them. As always, Chanel shadows can be used wet as well, for more intensity.
Lip Gloss -Christian Dior - Addict Lip Gloss- A Craving for Truffles- 521

As soon as I saw this, I had to have it. What a gorgeous color! This is a cool plummy brown, loaded with silver shimmer. It can be applied sheerly, or with more drama. I like it with MAC Plum liner, or just on its own. Looks fab with a nude eye, lots of mascara, and pink cheeks.

This is a really good color for me - neutral nude with gold shimmer. It's very sheer, and VERY glossy. I like the scent as well - it's vaguely sweet and goes away fast. Not intrusive at all.
I can only agree - this is a wonderful quint for all the blue-eyed girls! I have red hair, and eyes that are between blue, green and grey. These colors look excellent on me, and are neutral without being boring in the least. They can be applied dramatically as well. I really am unsure about the new packaging - the inside looks better, but I liked the old compacts more. Oh well. That's minor - this quint is SO worth getting!
Mascara -Christian Dior - Maximeyes [DISCONTINUED]

Thumbs up from me! This is a really nice mascara, with a really nice, fat, brush. It does an excellent job of separating my lashes, and I generally really like it. Ok, it's expensive - but all high-end mascaras are.
Wonderful color! This was less purple than I expected, which was a very good thing. It's very shimmery - almost metallic - and a deep reddish-burgundy-bronze color. Deeper than MAC O, imo.
I love this! It's a fairly straight golden shimmer blush, and it gives off very little color. It looks peachy-golden on me, and is not too noticable. Excellent for a glam, but still subdued, look!
Blush -Chanel - Irreelle Blush (Silky Cheek Colour)

I adore this blush! I have it in Illusion, which is a shimmery bubblegum pink. It doesn't have a lot of color, but gives the perfect light definition to my face. Excellent with a blue-eyes look and a pink lipstick!
