i am lovin this blush. ive been wearing everyday for a week straight lately. its a really nice color, a slightly shimmerly warm apricot peach color. the shimmers arent noticable on the face. the color shows up well on my skin, the pigmentation is great. it really adds life to my face. i would buy this again if i run out. the only thing i dont like is the packaging. a bit flimsy. but the price is so cheap i dont care. i got it for sale for two bucks at target, what a steal.
i was so diappointed with this product. for 20 bucks i was expecting much more. when i put this on, it didnt even make my lashes show up! drugstore brand mascaras work better than this. not good.
this relieves my lips from being really really chapped. i like the texture and i actually like the menthol feeling on my lips. i dont mind the medicine like smell. good product if you dont mind the strong ingredients. i dont like this packaging though. i prefer it over the pot, but i dont like plastic tip applicators.
i bought it for contouring but i really dont care for this shade. it just doesnt work for me, it ends up looking grey on me, which isnt what i wanted. the product texture is of course smooth, just like other nyx blushes, but i just didnt care for this color on me.
matte deep berry color. its really nice. cargo blushes are always good. its pigmented, there is lots of product, and it comes off as a natural look even though its a dark color. i really like this color. i just dab (dont swirl with cargo blushes, its so soft that if you swirl, too much product is everywhere) the brush a couple times then apply. its great. i love the packaging too.
this blush is amazing. its a darkish plummy shimmery color. its beautiful. it comes off as a subtle sheen on your face, no glittery mess. it really livens up my face. i think its more for a night out look rather than for day time because of the dark color and sheen finish. love the packaging too.

i love this. this is my favorite body lotion. it smells so amazing. the smell lingers too, it doesnt disappear. i usually put it on after i shower at night and then i go to sleep and my sheets end up smelling like it too. not only is the scent divine, but it performs great as a moisturizer. my legs and arms feel supple and soft after i use this and its not greasy at all. i will continue to repurchase. its pricey if you buy it at normal price, i usually wait until they have sales then stock up. the only thing i dont like about this lotion is how long it takes to sink in my skin. too long. but other than that, im not complaining
Mascara -L'Oreal - Waterproof Voluminous Carbon Black

i accidentally got this instead of the original nonwaterproof formula. i dont like this mascara. its so difficult to remove, the product dispenses heavy and clumpy. plus it smudges like crazy around my eyes when i apply it and its SO hard to remove it off skin. no thanks. i hope the original formula proves to be better...it does make my lashes show up and is a true very black color but that doesnt make up for the other cons.

im enjoying this product. ive been using it a lot for highlighting my cheekbones and my inner corners of the eye and the color is perfect for it, a shimmery not glittery white. its creamy and glides smoothly and blends easily, a little too easily. the only thing i wish it had was a longer staying power but for the price i'll take it for what it is.
you dont get the color in the bottle in two coats, it comes out much lighter which was a bit disappointing for me because i was looking for the dark vampy red that the bottle showed me. if you apply only two coats it looks very similar to sally hansen's 10 day polish in tenacious ruby. next time i'll try three coats to this to see if i get the color of the bottle. its a pretty shade though, regardless, but disappointing that it looks just like SH since i already have a red in that shade...
i love this shade of red, i would say its my favorite red. i get the same color in the bottle with two coats. its a darkish red thats matte with no shimmers. i dont have problems with chipping if i wear a topcoat since i do a lot with my hands i need it. this color looks very good on my fingers and toes. i love it. for me, this is an exact dupe for china glazes Ravishing Dahling if you apply the CG in two coats only.
i only use this for my toes. i dont like it on my fingers. it looks awesome on my toes though, and i usually dont go for brighter colors or sheens since i prefer mattes but i do like this shade. it lasts long and doesnt chip easily on my toes. it comes off as a medium purple shade with a sheen.
Polishes -L'Oreal - Pro Manicure Nail Polish-Sweet Nothings

i love this nail polish. its sheer, which is the only downfall, but when i put on two coats the sheerness goes away and the color looks good, a milky very nude light pink. sometimes i put on three coats and it isnt too thick where it starts chipping. i love this color, i would say its my favorite nail polish.
think of the color red. that is the exact shade of this polish. the shade reminds me of a red paint for kids color which bothers me a little. i prefer darker reds, but its not terrible. without a topcoat it chips very easily though. not my favorite color
very natural dusty pink color. very smooth and pigmented. and cheap. i want to get other colors. i wouldnt buy it again just because i think ill have it for a while.
