Color Infrared: Great reddish flushed looking gel type blush. I liked this lots better than the sheerer gels such as Tarte because it had just a little more opacity and thus I thought looked better. I also found this to be a little more neutral a red than many of the other red type gels, much more suitable as a cooler option for my NC25 complexion. The color stayed true all day-no stickiness or tackiness-also looks great as a lipstain and has no funky taste.
Have on a bit of agnes b. Green/Pink which I RIS today-doesn't look a lot like it does in the catalog-is green (a la MAC Club, but a bit mossier, lighter) in the pot, w/ a wine colored undertone but goes on a deep rose w/ green falsh. Great velvety texture!
This starts off very similar to Sentiment but just a bit greener-after it's faded down a bit has a lighter mens' clean cologne type smell-would be great for ladies who like mens' cologne-very clean light scent.
Interesting and different-very sweet and slightly musky-the smell reminds me of root beer almost-it has that sort of sweetness-not overpoweringly so tho. In addn, it reminds me of a lighter version of VW Boudoir the end notes after the patchuli in Boudoir has died down. Nice for everyday.
This is a fruity fracrance in the same family as more recent Sexy Grafitti and Ibiza hippie though noticably more floral and much more subtle-I think too that this one would be more suited to year long rather than just the warmer months and could be used for less casual occasions in addn to casual attire.

This is an e/s base that is s'posed to stop creasing-I'm not finding that to be necessarily so here. It is however a really cool iridescent gold shimmer that makes a great highlighter for browbones, inner corners and cheekbones, so not a total loss! :)
PE is THE funnest thing for the bath-even my DH gets excited when I order some. There's a scent and a theme for everybody and it's a really great little indulgence to treat yourself to.
Very nice! The pot is a bit small, but it is only like $2.99 so not bad-very nourishing to my winter parched hairs and feels nice!Edited after several weeks use-either this or the conditioner is breaking out my scalp-into the trash w/it!
Hey these are great-til I picked up one last week I was super staticky! Nice light conditioning w/ a good amount of slip and no residue-I personally could do w/out the fruity smell, but for that quality at that price you gotta go for it. Edited after several weeks use-this is a no-go; either this or the treatment is breaking out my scalp! No thanks!
IMO, Stila matte shadows just suck-they are dry and chalky-the light shades don't show up and the deeps go on eneven and streaky.
I shall most likely got lots of evil e-mails for not liking Stila all that well, but chacun a sa gout! Some of the shimmer shadows are very nice smooth shadows, but the rest seem to me to be hard and dry and just don't show up on me at all. I adore Kitten and Oasis and use Jezebel, Guava and Auburn as blush, but have not liked any of the others I ahve tried.
I originally wasn't great w/ the push up style of the Cheekstains (I found them a little difficult but they have since been reformulated a bit and are much more user friendly). In terms of pigment and staying power though they should be the ONLY gel blush sticks-you just can't beat 'em.
Cute little lavander leatherette compact, but the shadows aren't so hot. I didn't find the staying power to be the best and the one I bought wasn't as pigmented on as it was in the pallate-these would be better for a sheer and natural gal than for me.
Excellent product for the $. For something like $12 you get a huge pot of super fine glitter that'll last forever-the color selection is decent and the particles are fine enough that you can lay it on strong or be incredibly subtle.
Very nice shimmery loose e/s! The price of around $13 is very reasonable for this type of product and the pigment/staying power is great for the price. The best thing about BE I think though is the vast array of colors!
