This is really fantastic. If I go a few days without sleep, then I do get slight dark circles under my eyes. This will cover them completely! Also, once my face was irritated from an exfoliant I used... but, this covered the redness like a charm! It is smooth and wears well. Luv it!
Beware: This stuff will BREAK YOU OUT if you are breakout-prone. It has corn oil in it, which can cause major zitage! I'm only mildly breakout-prone, but I cannot sleep in this foundation, as I can with my other favorite (La Prairie Caviar). It does cover everything imaginable and the wear is beyond lovely, but not worth it if you are prone to breakouts. When I wear this and make sure not to sleep in it, then I do get tons of compliments on my complexion. Also, it is not expensive AT ALL. Great for photo shoots!!!
U know wut? I have NO idea wut the big freaking deal is about this. It isn't bad at all, but there is nothing extraordinary about it whatsoever. SO many products are very similar to this and work just well.
I ADORE this! I always get compliments when I wear this. I just feel so girly wearing it... a mix of cotton candy and caramel! I will always repurchase!
I do like this, but I was hoping that it would have a bit more peach and a bit less pink. It is just a little too pink for my taste. Overall, it is very pretty and lovely on the apples of the cheeks.
Mascara -Shiseido - The Makeup Mascara Base [DISCONTINUED]

Hmmm...after reading all of the great reviews, I'm puzzled as to why this product worked so poorly on me. Maybe I got a bad tube or something, but I absolutely hate this, lol! I MUCH more prefer the estee lauder lash primer to this, or even just mascara by itself worked better than this stuff! It dries really stiff and is hard to remove, as strange as that may sound. It also dries quickly, thereby making mascara more difficult to apply in my opinion. It made my eyelashes look stiff and clumpy. A huge waste of money for me! I'm glad it worked well for most of you, though! :)

I have this in lucy and LOVE it. It is the most beautiful medium copper brown pencil! It is 10 x prettier than my Estee Lauder Copper Writer and lasts ALL DAY. It applies like a dream and the color is stunning!!! Will repurchase again and again!
Hair Color -Garnier - Nutrisse Permanent Creme Hair Color

The BEST drugstore haircolor ever. In fact, it far exceeds anything at Sally's as far as quality is concerned. It leaves my hair ultra-shiny and in better condition that before. The colors are rich and beautiful. I mix Cocoa Bean (dark golden brown) and Chocolate Caramel (Medium Golden Mahogany Brown), and the result is a super rich warm dark golden-reddish brunette shade. My hair is super shiny and healthy-looking.

I LOVE my caruso set! I roll my hair and the volume, bounce, and waves lasts for days! I use the jumbo rollers because I don't want curl, just loose waves. It makes my hair look gorgeous and masks the damage that I have these days from overprocessing. These have been my saving grace lately! My hair looks the best when I used the rollers! Holy grail for me!
I just love this foundation. I've been wearing it since I was 18 or 19. I've strayed several times, but ALWAYS go back to it. It provides a medium-to-full coverage, but can be stiff if you don't know how to apply it. It works best over a thin coat of foundation primer. Also, make sure that your skin is hydrated, but not dewy or greasy before applying. If your skin is squeaky clean with no oils coming through, it won't give you a smooth finish. However, if your skin is lightly hydrated you can get a fantastic finish and great coverage. Also, it lasts and lasts for hours on end. I love it!
I'm on my 3rd bottle of this. This stuff is simply fantastic. You don't need to apply too much, and massage into the skin until well absorbed. If you don't overapply, you can wear this under makeup with no problem. This oil literally makes me skin super smooth and radiant. It feels incredible. I'm normally oily in the T-zone and normal in the cheek area. However, I've recently gone through an odd period of hormonal breakouts and have been using benzoyl peroxide. Therefore, I've been slightly drier in my cheek area lately. This oil is great when I'm normal/oily and great when I'm a little drier. I love it! It's the very best oil I have ever used for sure!
Mascara -Physicians Formula - F L A T Fabulously Long And Thick

Fab! This is my new favorite mascara. It has the same kind of flat brush that I had with the Dior Diorcil that was discontinued years ago. I use this in ultra black. I actually stumbled across it on accident and it is now a staple!!! UPDATE: I change my mind! It dries out soooooo quickly and is only great to use for a few weeks. Boo hoo! Not bad at all for the price, but not holy grail status!
HOT color for sure! Bold electric pink that looks fab with a tan! Will use all spring & summer for sure!!!
Powder -Chanel - Double Perfection Compact Teint Poudre Mat Eclat [DISCONTINUED]

Excellent product for sure! It provides a doll-like smooth matte finish. I wear Medium Beige 4, but apply with a big fluffy brush over my foundation. If I were to apply liberally with the sponge, it would be too dark (light beige 3 would work, though). I always go back to this, despite how pricey it is!
So lovely, especially on the apples of the cheeks! It makes you look healthy, alive, and radiant! The color is not solid - it starts out a pale gold/yellow, then becomes a true peach. It has very, very subtle shimmer, so it is not like the Nars Orgarsm. I also use it as an eyeshadow and/or highlight.
