My HG fragrance! I love this! It's great for any occasion, day or evening. The bottle is beautiful! Definitely worth checking out!
*Pics included* Hot Frost lipglass is part of the MAC Dame Edna Collection which was released in December 2008. On the MAC website it is described as a sheer mid-tone blue pink with multidimensional pearl, which IMO is pretty accurate. It is so pretty! It does have a lot of sparkle/shine in it (not the bad kind) which I think gives lips a plumping effect. I think this may be HG material :D! Now on to the packaging...not the best IMO.There is a glasses sticker on the wand lid that I feel will eventually peel off :( Also, the MAC symbol is no where to be found! Whatever though, it's a GREAT color...I might have to go back to MAC to pick up some more!
Ok, I have tried many, many mascaras & this one is definitely one of my favs! Color: Very strong black. Wand: BIG! For me, it makes application easier :) Performance: Awesome! This stuff is a perfect balance between not too wet & not too dry...it's kinda like a gel consistency. I usually wear A LOT of coats of mascara (like 3 or 4) & curl with mascara on (i know your not supposed to do that, but whatever...) & this stuff still doesn't clump up too bad. It gives great volume & length! Price: A little steep...about $20 w/tax. To me it's worth it though cause you get a lot of product & it's good stuff :)! Here's a pic of me with only BadGal on my eyes-->

I got a good size sample of this the other day. I was excited to try it because of the praise it has been getting here on MUA. I'm actually a little disappointed :(. When I first opened the sample I was hit with a big, strong whiff of this...it just seemed way too strong already. Put a little on my wrist, still too strong. Waited for the dry down, too strong....Basically this stuff gives me a headache. The other reviewers are right about what it smells like, but IMO it's too much & would be SO much better if they toned it down a little.

I went to Macy's to buy "G" from this line & ended up with "Music"...lol, I just love this scent (I still really like "G" though...will probably make another trip to Macy's soon)! I agree with the reviewer who said that this smells like Victoria's Secret Pear something...sorry forgot the name. It smells a lot like that stuff, but better IMO cause it doesn't have that hint of cheapness that I get from VS fragrances, if that makes sense haha. Staying power is ehhh, that's why I gave 4 lippies. Packaging is kinda cute, but I don't like how you have to pull the whole doll off every time you want to spray. Sometimes when I pull off the doll it takes the metal "sprayer" part along with it & I have to get a pair of tweezers to get that sucker out. Oh, & can't complain about the price...$25 :).

*Pic included* This stuff is OK for quick, *temporary* color. I had been blond for about 6 months & decided to dye my hair medium brown because I didn't have the money to keep up with highlights. I usually never use at home dye, but saw the decent reviews of this stuff & thought I'd give it a try. I chose the color "Truffle" because it looked like a beautiful/rich medium brown. When I first dyed my hair with this stuff, it was beautiful & very true to the color on the box. After the first wash though, this stuff QUICKLY faded. So, that's really my only complaint about this stuff...how quickly it fades. Other than that, this is pretty good at home dye. It leaves my hair feeling soft & shinny, & although it fades quickly, it doesn't fade into weird colors...just slowly back to what you started with. So, overall I think this stuff is worth a try if your in need of a quick change...just don't expect it to last very long. This is a pic of me the day that I dyed my hair-->
If you are looking for a blush that will give you a beautiful pink glow...look no further. This stuff is heavenly! It's a pinkish/coral color with gold shimmer. Like others have said, this is what Orgasm wishes it looked like :P. Great texture & blends easily. Staying power is good too. Definitely worth checking out.
Blush -MAC - Beauty Powder Blush in Stark Naked (Red, She Said) [DISCONTINUED]

I was just browsing the mall the other day & happened upon the MAC counter. I'm kind of a regular, lol, so I know a lot of the people who work there. One of the girls told me I had to check out the the Holiday Collection, especially this blush. At first glance it kind of reminded me of NARS Orgasm (probably because of the gold shimmer it has to it). But the more I looked at the more I noticed it was more of a rosy/berry color (Orgasm is more of a peachy pink). It is really a gorgeous color! It has the perfect amount of shimmer to it also (I am not a big shimmer blush type of girl). Awesome product...hope it becomes perm :D.
I love this stuff! Before purchasing this, I used to use just a regular cleanser (Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Cleanser). After using a toner, I would always notice that there was still a lot of makeup left on my face. This contributed to breakouts because it was clogging my pores. I have had MAC cleanse off oil for about 4 months now & I can honestly say that it has made an improvement in my skin. My routine every night is: 1. Cleanse Off Oil on dry face. Massage all over face (even eyes). Wash off with water. 2. Use regular cleanser (you could probably do with out this, but I like having a SUPER clean face lol). 3. Tone (I love witch hazel). Now when I tone, there is no sign of any make up :D. This stuff smells great & lasts forever (still on my first bottle!). Good stuff!
Masks -Grassroots - bright now skin brightening face mask

Used this for the first time last night & love it! I purchased it at Kohl's for about $10 (it's usually $14, but it was on sale). It comes in a squeeze tube container, which I love (no contamination). The smell is nice & not overwhelming. Like someone else said, it has a marshmallow consistency. I am so used to masks that dry/harden, this one does not. I washed my face, dried it, & then applied a generous amount of this all over my face. After about 2 minutes I could feel it doing something (a little tingle/sting). I left it on for about 10 minutes & then washed it off. It was very easy to wash off (unlike Miss Queen Helene *cough* *cough*). The results were truly amazing :D! About a month ago I had a horrible hormonal breakout that left scars. I have been looking for something to lighten them & this did just that! I swear it lightened them by 70-80% after one use. It also left my skin feeling very soft & moisturized. I can not wait to use it again & again!!!
One of my HG lipsticks. Perfect red IMO! If you are looking for a crazy bright blue/red...keep looking, lol, cause this aint it :). This is more of a "soft" red, if that makes sense. It is simply gorgeous. Sometimes I just use this as a wash on my lips to add some color. Or I'll also put this on my lips and then add NARS Chihuahua l/g for a pouty look. Many possibilities w/this stuff :)

One word: yummy! I love this stuff! Perfect Fall/Winter fragrance. These are the notes I get from this; vanilla, white chocolate, & a bit of lavender. It's very unique smelling & unlike any other perfume I have tried. Staying power is good too. My only complaint, and this complaint goes for ALL MAC perfumes, is the bottle size. 0.68 fl oz. for $22..not as cheap as it seems.
I recently purchased this MAC l/s & I love it! I have been looking for the perfect super bright pink lippie to wear with a sun kissed look & guess what, I've found it :)!Very fun color...check it out next time your at MAC!
