This is one of my fav new blushes. It's a cotton candy pink with alot of silver shimmer. The pigmentation is great and I never have to re-apply. I personally love a shimmery blush and this gives the perfect pink cheek. The shimmery does not really show up on my skin at all tho. Just like other NARS products it's a tad pricey but I would def re-purchase.
I LOVE this perfume. It is a very sweet, light scent. Vanilla stands out most to me. The staying power isn't the best and the price isn't cheap. BUT I would def re-purchase this since I get so many compliments when I wear it.
This is a gold-khaki color with shimmer. Identical to MAC's tempting and also mark's Gioia. I've owned all at the same time and I do not like this color on me at all. I just cannot seem to pull off that "antique gold" color. The color is buildable and staying power is great with the MK eye primer. The actual product is quite small but somewhat inexpensive. I personally will not purchase this again just because the color is not "me".
This was my first ever lip gelee. I was super excited to get this in the mail since I am such a huge dazzleglass fanatic. It's a beige with gold and pink shimmers in it. The texture is nothing like a dazzleglass, it's actually a thin consistancy instead of sticky. I use a very small amount, as a little goes a long way. This tube will literally last forever. I would def re-purchase.
This color reminds me alot of Satin Taupe, but this one is less pigmented and shimmery. This is taupe with purple and grey undertones and very little shimmer on the lid (actually almost none)I do have to build and build to get the color I want but I really love the outcome. This is one of those colors you can wear everyday all over the lid. I used mine with Magnetic fields in the crease and dazzlelight as a highlight. Sometimes I use only this and a highlight as far as shadow goes. Altho a bit on the pricey side for one single eyeshadow, I would re-purchase. If you are looking for a dupe I found one, I've had it in my collection for years and use it all the time but never really thought about them being this much alike. It's a color called Minx by Mark. Minx is a tad more shimmery silver, but you get the same color on the lid. Update: I am proud to say this is one of the very few eyeshadows I've ever hit pan on and had to repurchase. It's my go to color when I'm not sure what to wear.
I bought this only because of the hype. I only had to apply 2 coats and it did apply well and the color is nice. After purchasing it I started thinking I have seen this color before, and after searching through all my polishes I came across it's dupe. This color is so similiar to avon's nocturnal it's just ridiculous. And for half the price. It isn't identical but very close.
I bought this mainly because I almost always use browns and neutral eyeshadows. I also use it for my brows now and then. It's medium brown with no shimmer. The color is buildable and I do love it as a base but it's somewhat hard to blend and after owning it for just a few months it seems to be drying out on me already. I would not purchase this pp again.
This is a great color for my brown eyes. It's a muted mid purple with silver shimmer. It is almost true to the color in the jar. It's very similiar to shale just in a pigment form. It's super easy to blend. I like wearing this all over the lid with satin taupe in the crease. I would def re purchase if it were to be re released.
I got this in a swap by a wonderful gal on MUA, I obviously wanted this mostly for the packaging but when I received it I was really shocked at how bright the color was. However, this color is so subtle and sheer. I like it but I don't love it. I use it as blush and it's a pink color but very, very sheer. I would def purchase this again but since it is LE I will just have to refill my compact with something else. UPDATE: I no longer use this as a blush since I discovered pink swoon. I now use this for those days when I need a little color or pick me up (me and bronzer do not agree). I also depotted this and filled the compact with my azalea blossom blush. It looks fab!
This is a brown color with a plum sheen to it and I do like this color however this color is way too much like mulch. I did side by side swatches and it's almost identical. If I had to choose one, I would have no preference over the other but I can't justify owning both. The color is beautiful and super easy to blend, however I won't buy this again since I do own mulch. If I didn't have mulch, I'd re-purchase :) It looks awesome paired with shroom!! UPDATE: After swapping my twinks, I felt I could not live without this color, so I went out and bought another!
I got this in a mini after hosting a party, I later purchased a big bottle. This is as other have stated is alot like Happy from Clinique. Fruity with a little bit of citrus. I don't prefer one over the other since I think they are so much alike. This is one of those scents that is not too overpowering but I tend to re apply it because it doesn't have much staying power. I use this alot more in the summer because it is so light or when I need a little pick me up.

I am not a huge fan of BE eyeshadows, since I prefer a pressed shadow but I bought this at Sephora on a whim. It leans towards being a copper brown shade with lots of shimmer. I love the shimmer but hate the fallout. I usually use this all over the lid with faux mink in the crease and nude beach as highlight. This is a very VERY close dupe for Mac's impassioned solar bits. UPDATE: I send mine into be pressed by "Pressed Like Shadow" and LOVE it more than ever now. I still have some fallout, but nothing like before when it was loose. Plus now I use tons less.

This is lipgloss is great. It's super creamy and smells great. It's a nude pink with some slight gold shimmer. And I really like the brush applicator.
This is one of my HG products. I have purchased many backups just because I'm afraid they will dc it. I play around with makeup alot but this is my go to eyeshadow. I put this on my entire lid with either magnetic fields or mystery in the crease and phloof as highlight. This is one of those "must have" products. The color is very interesting, it's purple/grey/brownish. For years I wanted a purple/brown for the lid and I always had to layer 2 colors but it never was a color I truly loved. Then I found this!! I will continue to repurchase.
I absolutely love this blush. I only bought this because of the reviews. It's very nude pink and matte. I read on some people it looks "dirty" however on me it's more of a nude color. So nude it's almost not there. It's very hard to overdue it with this color. This was my 3rd MAC blush and it's now my favorite. I normally like a darker blush but this light color looks great on me, and it's a nice change for me. Perfect for a smokey dramatic eye with a subtle cheek and lip. I use this almost every single day now. I would def buy it again. (In the pan it looks alot like blushbaby, but on the skin bb is darker)
