I really love this Lip Shimmer. Depending on how much you apply it can either be a light bitten pink or a full on bright. I loe the fact that it moisturizes my lips and gives colorl. I have very pigmented lips so it is a nice compliment to even out my lip tone without looking make up or like I have alot of lipstick on. Great stuff. I will def. buy again!
I alredy have a few highlighters that I really love but had heard pretty good things about the AOS. I bought some along with my Golden Moon Palette, thinking it would make a complete look. Anyhow, the AOS has rather chunky glitter in it. Not large cheap glitter but is noticeable glitter. Isn't the name All Over Shimmer not Glitter? Along with the sort of sheen it imparts on the skin it leaves behind too many large glitter chunks which turns me off. The color is nice and neutral(universal) however which I really like.
Great cheap blush! A great MUA sent me an ROAK--- this is my favorite! I love the color, it is really natural all skintones. I don't have Nars Orgasm so I can't do a comparison. This should be a staple for everyone! It is perfect alone and layered. Perfect! Edited: I am so over this blush! Just over it.
I wanted something really 'sparkly' but not glittery which is what Midnight Cowboy is. The glitter falls but you can stop that with eye drops. This is much more of a teenage shadow. I will keep it for extra fun times but could never see repurchasing.
I bought this because of the reviewers who claimed that it really made blue eyes pop. I think it is a great color for blue eyes, however it takes alot of effort to get the color from the pan to the brush to the eye. It seems very 'hard'. I tried the method of applying it with a sponge tipped applicator to help the lustre show up but it just really is too much work for an eyeshadow. Great color, nice concept but doesn't work.
This is very bright and on the garish side. If I had a skunk brush I might be happier but until then it stays tucked away. It is a nice color but very bright. Not made for the super pale!
My HG lip gloss. It reminds me of my old HG Clinique's GlossWear in Mystic. This is more purple/mauve in the tube but a really warm pink on my very dark lips. My lips are pretty dark nautrally so it is a pain finding gloss that shows up and doesn't look harsh. This perfect. Love it love it love!

I said this was very expensive...not really but for pink vaseline it is. Im not bowled over by this products yet. I have to reapply ALL day to feel any sort of long lasting moisturizing. Apparently it is a MA musthave but this free lancer thinks it is just ok.
I will get this again and again. I got the GLOW shade that came with every purchse. Recieved an email that said "compare to nars orgasm". Very pigmented for a 1dollar blush but the other reveiwer was right, it become like loose powder when touched. The shade is very pink with lots of gold shimmer to it. AMAZING for the 90 cents I paid.

I can't decide about this. It didn't even arrive in the package. It was all smushed. It curls but Im not sure if it is better than the one I already have.
I really love this self tanner. Yes I exfoliate and moisturize before each application and use latex gloves when I put it on and really have no streaks! Every once in a while I will find one but it is rare. I just really make sure to massage it into my skin like it is my favorite lotion. My only complaint is that the color indicator washes off leaving me a totally different color than I wake up with. Im not looking for the color on my body but I wish it were a bit darker.
I really like this mascara. It is very basic and gives my lashes very pigmented color and depth. My only issue is that this mascara seems to ALWAYS deposit on my lid before I am even done applying. I hate that. That is why I took off 1 lippie. But I have bought more than one tube so I guess it is a keeper.
The scent is so clean and light. It really is moisturizing for being a bar, which isn't something that happens often. It seems to disapear fast. Maybe I use to much. I love the lather. It gets really frothy and dense at the same time. Don't ask me how but it just does! I love it!
I like that this is a double ended product that takes up minimal room in my makeup case. I couldn't find this in a light blonde only dark but I can fudge it a bit if I apply and brush with a clean eyebrow brush then apply the gel. It is nice and natural on me if I work at but I just can't spend to much time getting ready with two small children. So if I could find this in light blonde I'd be very happy.
