I got this as a gift in the Chocolate color and was very skeptical because I usually stay away from browns on my lips. I was pleasantly surprised by this. It was a very light neutral color, beautiful over MAC Dervish liner. This lipgloss also was very smooth and silky feeling on my lips. Staying power was average for a lipgloss.
Highlighters -BeneFit Cosmetics - Hollywood Glo [DISCONTINUED]

I love this. I must admit, some of the love is for the packaging. Cutest bottle ever! Esp how it says For Screenstar Lovliness Use Hollywood Glo! I also do really like this as a highlighter. As other reviewers have said it goes on best if you pat it on then blend any edges a little. It is a light rosey bronze color. And you only need a tiny bit. I think this may be discontinued, but a bottle will last a long time. I mostly use this when I'm not wearing foundation. I put a little bit on my cheekbones, the bridge of my nose and above my upper lip. It gives a nice subtle healthy glow.
Eye Primer -Too Faced - Shadow Insurance, Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer

Love, love, love! I use this every day under my eye makeup, and not only does it keep it from fading (even when I have fallen asleep with MU on, shameful) it makes the colors so much more vibrant. I have also used UDPP, and I like this better, partly because of the packaging. You can get all of it out of the tube and I like the tube applicator better than the doefoot. UPDATE: I have fallen asleep with heavy eye makeup on using this (hangs head) and woke up with 90% still in tact.
Lip Liners -Clinique - Quickliner for Lips (Sky Violet)
dlbd2k06 12/11/2008 3:38:00 AM
I will buy this again and again. It is not really violet, but a light neutral pink. For some reason it is hard to find pink liners that aren't too dark or too brown. This one is perfect. I also love MAC Dervish, which is similar, but this is better because it doesn't need to be sharpened.
This is one of the few products I actually ever use up. This pencil is the perfect neutral light pink with no brown in it. It is almost exactly the color of my lips naturally. I use this under pretty much everything since the color is so natural. The only thing I would like better is if it came in a pencil that didn't need sharpening.
Lip Gloss -Estee Lauder - Pure Color Crystal Gloss - Sweet Pea 304
dlbd2k06 12/11/2008 3:32:00 AM
I really like these lipglosses in general. Sweet Pea looks link a light pink with pink chunks of glitter in the tube. On me it is very sheer almost clear and the glitter is not as visible. I am going to try this over a lip pencil to get a little more color.
Lip Gloss -Estee Lauder - Pure Colour Gloss-New Formula-Nude Rose
dlbd2k06 12/11/2008 3:29:00 AM
I love this lipgloss. It is a MLBB color for me, a neutral light pink with a little bit of peach. It has a smooth, non sticky texture and doesn't dry out my lips. Staying power is about average for a lipgloss. I know a lot of people don't like EL that much, but to me the scent of their products and also the packaging make then feel kind of retro glamourous.
This is an HG product for me. I am surprised I hadn't reviewed it before since I have used it for quite a while. I find this gives a good amount of color without turning orange. I use it pretty much every day. I put a regular lotion on my ankles, feet, knees and also around my bellybutton first (otherwise these areas pick up more color) and then use this all over. This also fades evenly and doesn't leave sploches as it wears off. The only drawback for me is it isn't all that moisturizing.
Hair Styling Tools -Conair - Infiniti Tourmaline Ceramic Curling Iron 1
dlbd2k06 11/5/2008 2:06:00 PM
Overall I like this curling iron. It creates nice frizz free curls that hold well in my straight, hard to curl hair. It does have a couple of design flaws. The tip is sort of thin and pointed so sometimes my fingers slip down it onto the barrel (ouch!) and the on/off button is kind of touchy and located where my fingers go when using the iron. I accidently turn it off quite often because of this. I probobly would look for another similar curling iron before buying this one again.
When I first put this on, I thought the line was a little thicker than I would like, it went on easily and evenly though, so no big deal. Within an hour it had faded to a light gray. Terrible!
I'm glad I didn't pay full price for this, $7 at Nordstrom Rack. The color is pretty a sheer red. The problem is that it is so soft that when I (gently) put it on, it smushed over the top of the tube. Wouldn't bother buying any more of these even at this price.
Why oh why didn't I look at the reviews before I bought this! I was excited about this lipgloss since it looks beautiful in the tube and was always sold out. It is basically just a clear gloss with a little shimmer in it. It also has a weird thin, gel like feel to it. I would just use it as a clear gloss over other colors, but the shine even wears off within a few minutes. Also the lipbrush in it is pretty bad too.
I have this in Fairy Wings, a nude color and Pixie Dust, green. I really like these. They are sparkly without looking obnoxious. They can be applied as a sheer wash or dabbed on for a more intense look. The glitter stays on really well too, unlike most other glitter products I have used. I use the Fairy Wings alone for a subtle sparkly look. The Pixie Dust I use for a more fun, occasional look. I layer it over Maybelline Antique Jade eyeshadow.
Lip Gloss -Bare Escentuals - Buxom Lip Gloss in Trixie
dlbd2k06 9/19/2008 10:14:00 PM
Love this lipgloss! Trixie is a great neutral pink with a shimmer to it. I don't think it does anything as far as making my lips plumper, it is a really great gloss though.
Highlighters -Clinique - Fresh Bloom AllOver Colour - Peony

I received this as a GWP. I used it for the last two days as a blush. It looks really pretty on, not too shimmery, gives more of a nice light glowy look. Staying power is good too. If I bought this again I would most likely get a different color though. It is a little plum toned for me.
