I love this highlighter because it is pink and vanilla and gives a nice pearly glow to my skin. Finely milled and just a swish of a brush is all it takes to get that nice glow. I also really think that the little chandelier stamped on the powder and the packaging are sooo cute! Sometimes Too Faced hits the spot for me. Packaging is sturdy and snaps shut easily.
I purchased this from the Mac Heavenly Creatures collex along with Light Year. This is a mineralized skinfinish highlighter with a pink tone to it, so it can be used as a blush also. It has some golden veins in it, but i can't really tell when I wear this. The product is great quality, and is not hard to get some on the brush at all. Just a light couple of swipes is all I need. I would definatley buy again, but seeing that this is discontinued, I won't be able to.

This is a pretty, champagne highlighter. It is very shimmery, so i have to apply with a light hand. It's definaltey one of my favorites. It's perfect for everyday (again, if you use a light hand) because it is not metallic and gives a nice highlight to the cheeks or what have you.
Blush -Tarte - Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Amused
beautyglitter 12/4/2012 7:38:00 AM
I love the Tarte Amazonian Clay blushes!! The one in Amused is a very pink, cool-toned blush and is very pigmented. I apply very lightly to my cheeks and make sure to blend like a mofo, and I get the prettiest flush. This blush is matte and has no sparkles, like some of the AC's do. Lasts all say on me ( i have dry skin), does not fade at all, or oxidise.
This is pretty pearly pink luminizer. Looks great mixed with foundation or applied to tops of cheekbones and other places you would like a little pretty pink highlight. Very liquidy, but not runny. Update: A very sweet friend sent me the Boots No. 7 High Lights lotion and this look exactly the same as the highbeam! Being that the Boots one will last me quite a long time, I will not be repurchasing Highbeam.
This used to be my HG mascara before I found They're Real. I didn't know what I was missing. This mascara only gives glossy length, no volume, but one thing I really like about this mascara is that it doesn't smudge on me. It doesn't clump at all, ever. So if you want natural looking darker lashes, this is the mascara for you.
This is a nice mascara if you want voluminous lashes and very black lashes, but it smudges like a mofo if I laugh too much. This is not the waterproof one, that one may not be as bad with the smudging. Also, too much product is on the wand when I take it out of the tube..so much so that it glopped on the floor once and I ended up tracking it through the house! will not buy this again. I uploaded a pic of a kitty who looks the same as me when i wore this mascara.
Loose Powders -Maybelline - Shine Free Oil Control Loose Powder

I used to use this before using the covergirl loose powder, and i remember never having any issues with this as a setting powder. It is more on the matte side. They have a good shade range too. But I think I like my covergirl one better being that it is not as matte, and I have really dry skin, so I like a dewy look.
This is a full-coverage concealer, and that's about the only thing that I like about it. I tried applying this concealer under my eyes with a little moisturizer to thin it out to ease application, and by mid-day, it was separating under my eyes, making me look like an old hag. NO THANK YOU. I'd rather walk around with my zombie-circles fully-displayed than to have cake bake under the eyes. Will not repurchase.
I bought Orgasm a good while back, and it was my first Nars blush. It is full of golden glitter, and i don't really get the hype of how this is supposed to the prettiest blush for all skintones. I beg to differ. This is a nice blush, if you love the glitter on your face, but it's definatly not my fave.

I picked this up as soon as i saw it at Ulta due to the raves on the MUB, and I am sooo glad I did. This is a beautiful golden highlighter, and is shimmery, not glittery in the least. Not as finely-milled as the KA Candlelight one, but definatley awesome quality for such a small price. I apply this with my Real Techniques blush brush lightly to the tops of my cheekbones and the bridge of my nose, and it gives me a pretty golden-tinted glow.
i bought this on the rec that it is comfortable on dry skin. That it is. It applies nice and easy. Not a lot of coverage, but that doesn't bother me since i have decent skin. But after wearing this one day, i noticed that it looked shiny and greasy on me. Will not repurchase.
I really love this palette! I love shimmer and a lot of the shadows in this palette are shimmery goodness. I have to admit that I do use the lighter shades more than the darker ones, but that's just because i am more drawn to lighter shades on my eyes. My fave darker color in this palette is Toasted. It is gorgeous! I am so glad that i bought this palette because when using a dud palette (that I no longer own since i returned it), i picked this one up and applied some shades from Naked over the previous palettes botch-job and i looked great! *hugs palette*
Primer/ Corrector -Maybelline - Instant Age Rewind Primer Skin Transformer
beautyglitter 11/30/2012 9:01:00 AM
This is a clear, silicony primer. When I applied this to my face, then proceeded to apply my foundation and concealer, i noticed that my concealer would not blend like it normally does without a silicony primer. It was like the concealer had nothing to stick to. I wore this one time and that was it. It made me realize that I do not like silicony primers and I have not used another like it since.
This is such a pretty and yummy gloss. It's got pink and green sparkles in it and tastes like vanilla cupcake. Feels good on the lips, not too sticky at all, but the wand is a huge doe-foot applicator, and if you are not careful when pulling this out of the tube, gloss can goop on your clothes and things lol. Take it slow. I will not repurchase since i have two backups.
