Unzipped- The best matte black eyeshadow, blends awesome, great quality black, Plumcrazy- Awesome cooler purple, has shimmer, good pigment too, love this color! Mid-tone, not too dark. Raisin Cane- Wow, smooth as silk color, great crease color, blends so nicely. Its a warmer browney purple, matte, medium tone. All good quality colors, will be getting more!
Great gentle scrub. No irritating ingredients. Very fine grain, no shells either. I love this scrub, one of the best ive ever used. I mix it with my cleanser a few times a week. Rinses clean with no residue.Good job St. IVES! One to buy over and over!

Awesome dupe for MAC's 217, I think I like this one better because its softer on the lid. Awesome deal!
Powder -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Light Medium [DISCONTINUED]

This is an excellent powder. I have tried tons of powders over the years and this really is worth the $26 bucks! Whats so great is that it does NOT look powdery on your skin. Its super light, but covers nicely. I wear it over Double Wear in Linen (Im NC 15). Awesome product! I don't think this powder would work well for oil control. If you have normal or normal to dry skin, you would probably enjoy this powder.

Awesome matte lipstick. Has lots of pigment and coverage.This is great to wear with a gloss over it because the color stays put and doesn't get too slippery. What a steal! Love this color on my NC15 skintone.
This is the best mascara! Ive been in the beauty business for over 12 years, this is one of the best mascaras Ive ever used, a steal at the drugstore. Great brush, no clumps, no flakes. Gives a false eyelash look, which is great!
This is a great basic color to own, the shimmer is so fine and pretty. The color is a light pinky, peachy shade with a hint of gold in it. I don't pick up any mauve tones like many people mentioned in the reviews. Its a light warm tone. I have brown eyes, but it looks good on just about everyone. Tigers Eye from BE looks good with it and so does Queen Tiffany. I like to use Shale(a medium matte neautral purple) from MAC in the crease with Bare Skin. I use a dark purple liner with it, really looks good on brown eyes.NYC and maybelline have great dark purple eyeliners that really stay put.
My favorite blush ever! Im very very fair(NC15) dark hair, dark eyes. I love this wash of color. The transparency is perfect but it really stays put on my combo skin type. Looks great day and night. I usually contour with a very light bronzer(MAC Personal Style blush), then put Pink Swoon on the apples of my cheeks. Awesome formula!
This is a sheer-light powder, that goes great over a liquid foundation. By itself it will not give you little or no coverage. I got the classic ivory shade (120) and Im very fair with some pink undertones in my skin. This color (yellow based) helps to neutralize the pink in my skin. The texture is very smooth, not chalky. Good light powder for the price. This goes well with my Double Wear foundation in Linen.

The Softsoap called "Soothing Aloe Vera" is the best face wash! I have used everything on the market.This is by far a great non-drying face wash (for Combo skin types) with minimal, non-irritating ingredients. My skin has changed for the better from the first week I started using it. Its very inexpensive which is a plus too.

Awesome, inexpensive concealer. I have tried almost everything out there, this is one of the best for a good price. Im around NC15 (Double Wear in Linen) and I get the Light/medium. I tried the light but it was way too light for me. Great on dark circles and blemishes. I use the real techniques fluffy dome eyeshadow brush to buff this into my skin.Gives a very flawless look. Wears very well throughout the day. I love that it has an SPF in it too. Highly recommend.
The best foundation ever! Ive tried literally everything on the market and this always beats everyone else' brand. Expensive but worth it. Little goes a long way. I use a MAC sponge to apply so it doesnt look heavy. Use loose translucent powder with it, your skin will look flawless.Im a NC 15 and Linen is a perfect color on me. Bone is lighter than linen but still has more of a yellow undertone. Bone and Linen are perfect if your very fair with lots of red undertones in your skin. I will never stop buying this makeup! Nothing compares to it and I have tried it all!
