I love vampy nail polishes. I especially wanted this one because it has awesome shimmer/glitter in it. I love it. I thought the glitter would have been more obvious though. That's the only con. I still love it though. I was also surprised at how fast it dried. I love it! I always end up messing my nail polish because I'm always moving. This dried super fast! The formula is awesome. All I needed was 2 layers and I was done. It's one of my loves for sure :D I might just buy another one because I love it so much
Whoa! this is a BAAAAAAAD idea for us oily girls. Don't do it! I turned into a grease ball within HALF AND HOUR! and yes I do powder afterwards. Pros: 1. pump Cons: 1. I get oily within half an hour 2. It has shimmers!!! no joke 3. It's to beige for me. I have yellow-golden undertones. I shall stay with my HG Lancome teint idole ultra. Too bad this couldn't be my cheap drugstore alternative for everyday.
Sorry to be a party pooper here but this just didn't work out for me. I always do smokey eyes and thought this would be awesome for me. It wasn't. I thought oh great I could have different colored dark e/s. Bah, it was dumb All u have to do to get a dark colored e/s like these is add black to whatever color u want and bam ur good. Plus, it's too expensive. I found better dupes from Fyrinnae at a cheaper price. Plus, they are more sparkly and give u that bam look i was looking for. This just felt like a no-brainer. I returned it.
Moisturizers -Mary Kay - TimeWise Age fighting Moisturizer C/O

I've been using this moisturizer for quite a while now. I have very oily skin and hate putting on moisturizer that feels heavy especially when I know I'm going to build up oil on it. eh* I love this moisturizer because it feels so light when it's on. I don't even feel it. I just feel fresh and hydrated. It sinks right in and fast! I love it. I even use it at night and it's wonderful for me. It doesn't have spf but well mary kay has another product for that purpose. I just love that my skin loves this day and night. And I don't need this at night. I already repurchased it and will continue. :D
Liquid -Lancome - Teint Idole ULTRA [DISCONTINUED]
SharonWT 11/16/2010 4:42:00 PM
Ok. So, I'm always on the hunt for a good foundation. I just realized that mineral makeup just doesn't cut it for me because I get crazy oily within half an hour to an hour.This happens with all mmu. So, I decided to try liquid. I used tarte recreate foundation for a while and loved it but it's not an exact color match. It has a bit of beige that doesn't really go well for my yellow undertones. So, I decided to try lancome. The SA got my matched my color right on. I was very impressed. This foundation is awesome. Pros: 1. I got a great color match. EXACT. And that's hard for my golden skin tone 2. It feels light weight. I can't even feel it on 3. It fights my oilies for almost 2 hours. yes, that's good for me because I'm seriously oily. I use about 3-4 oil blotters a day but I have relatively clear skin so I'll put up with it. 4. I love the pump. U don't end up wasting product. 5. This foundation doesn't dry up fast when applying so it gives u enough time to blend. 6.It's a great medium coverage foundation. U can layer it for full coverage though and it won't feel cakey for me. cons: 1. it's expensive! I got it for $46. Ohhhh Lordy. 2. I can't find it on the Sephora site and therefore can't get good deals of the 10-20% off whenever they come. :( I'd still repurchase it though. I think it's my HG. Nothing comes close to this stuff. :D
Blush -Rock & Republic - Contrived Blush - All Nighter
SharonWT 10/27/2010 8:59:00 PM
I love this blush. It's a deep orange-red color with gold shimmer. When I first saw it, I thought, "Wow, there's no way I can work that." lol It's soooo pigmented. U just have to learn to use a little and blend it out. No biggie. It looks absolutely wonderful on my medium tan skin. I'm so happy I took people's suggestions and bought it. I don't regret it. :D It's huge too!! I think I'll have it till the day I die. lol.
This is my HG black e/s. It's absolutely perfect. It's super pigmented, super blendable and just awesome. I'm going to have to buy another one soon because I'm running out. I use this most every day for smoking out my eyeliner and darkening colors. It's seriously amazing. I wouldn't even think about any other HE brand bc this is just too good, nothing could compare. I love my smokey eyes and dark dark eyeliner. This is for people that want a true black and have the skills to work with it. Black takes lots of practice to work with, but it can be done. :D I'm definitely repurchasing. :D
Lip Treatments -eos - Smooth Sphere Organic Lip Balm in Honeysuckle Honeydew
SharonWT 7/9/2010 8:58:00 PM
why oh why did i jump on this bandwagon? In other words this didn't live up to it's hype at all. It's nice and cute but not nearly as moisturizing as I thought or would have liked. I mean really. It's not. For about $4 it sux. I'd get a better one or 2 for that much money. sigh*
I love this palette. It's super pigmented. no joke. U don't need to pack it on at all. It's also veryyyyy shimmery. So beware of that if u don't like shimmery. NOT GLITTERY AT ALL by the way. I did a nice smokey eye on my mom and man she was smokinnn. :) I would suggest u get it if u love these kind of shimmery neutrals. It's beautiful. I have yet to really try that primer but I have a feeling I'll love it.
I like this palette a lot. But it does have it's flaws. Pros: They're pigmented. They are better than ordinary e/s bc of what they're made of I found some wonderful colors that I like Cons: They are a lot chalkier than the original day to night palette which I LOVE. - bc of that u do need a good primer. I use a primer plus a paint pot to give the e/s a good sticky base to stay on since they're chalky. There are some colors that I don't like but well there's no palette that'll ever have everything that I like. haha In all, u just need a good base for them to stay on. I wouldn't repurchase only bc these will last me a lifetime. haha
This is my HG red l/s. It's absolutely perfect on me, and it's soooo hard finding a red that look good on me. I'm tan with golden undertones and I would have never thought I'd ever find a good true red that would look good on me. I'm never letting go of this red. :) It's a good formula. It's not too dry and has a semi-matte finish. It wears off throughout the day but that's bc I have a boyfriend. :P lol I would definetly repurchase. :)
I am absolutely in love with this paint pot. I always apply a primer underneath bc I have oily lids so I don't know if it works without a primer. It doesn't crease at all with a primer, again I have no idea how it is w/o a primer. I love it for an extra oomph for my usual neutral and neutral smokey. I also love how much better my e/s stays with this paint pot. Apart from that, I have also noticed how creamy this pp is compared to others. :) that way u dont have to tug at ur lids. I'd def. repurchase:)
Makeup Brushes -Sonia Kashuk - Large crease brush- white handle

I love this crease brush and the price is amazing too. There's no way I'm gonna pay over 15 for any brush. I don't care if people say it's amazing. I use good quality inexpensive brushes and still get the desired look. Back to this crease brush. It's super soft. If you really need to blend u might want a more packed brush with thicker hairs. *just a suggestion* If i ever lose this, I'd repurchase it for sure.
Palettes -Tarte - Eye Couture Day-To-Night Eye Palette
SharonWT 7/2/2010 2:19:00 AM
I am in love with this palette. I've used soooo many times. I love the pigmentation of the colors. They are so silky smooth too. i think this is Tarte's best palette. The others are chalkier. :( still good with a good base, but chalky. I love the bronze and golden colors, gunmetal color too. Granted not all of us are going to love every single color. I have a few I don't really use. Not bc I don't think they're good, but bc they're just not colors I typically wear. For example the light colors... I'll just pass them on to my mom somehow. lol As for the packaging. i like it. I don't think it's cheap looking at all. I feel glamorous with it. However, I could care less about the packaging. These e/s are friggin amazing.
I love this brown! It's a deep brown with reddish undertones. It's not at all harsh on me. It's great with my brown eyes! I hate how some browns make u look all ashy... Not this one. It's a great contrasting brown for brown eyes. if that makes sense. haha. Great for brown smokey eyes!
