Lip Gloss -MAC - Plushglass in Wet Wild and Wonderful

This is my HG lip gloss! I think my lips look fuller when I wear it. The website describes the colour as a bronze with gold pearl. I love the buzzing sensation; it "wakes" me up! I do find it sticky, though. On a windy day, my hair will stick to my lips, which is annoying. Otherwise, everything about it is great!
This is my HG eyeliner! Comes in many colours, but I only use Mink, which I would describe as brown and grey mixed together. An essential part of my smokey eye looks! Doesn't crease on me at all, glides pretty smoothly, and I love the low price!
I purchased this colour as part of the Holiday 2006 Smoked Palette. The website describes this as a muted reddish brown duochrome with green opalescent shimmer in a satin finish. This colour is very pretty; I love it! I apply it on the outer lid using the 217 brush, blending it into the crease for a smokey eye.
I purchased this colour as part of the Holiday 2006 Smoked palette. The website describes this as a taupe brown with silvery bronze shimmer in a frost finish. I would call the shimmer purple instead of silvery bronze. I apply this in the crease using the 252 brush as part of a smoky eye. I like this colour because it darkens the crease just enough without looking too dramatic for work!
I purchased this colour as part of the Holiday 2006 Smoked palette. The website describes this as a soft pinkish-beige in a matte finish. I apply this only on the lid using the 213 brush as part of a smoky eye. On my NW45 skin it looks more beige than pink, which is okay with me.
Too bad this has been discontinued. My eyebrows have been overplucked over the years (by others, not myself) and some hairs won't grow in certain places. I use the dark brown version of this to fill in those areas and make my brows look more "defined". I like that the brush is on the cap. I can't be bothered with the eye shadow highlighter on the other end, though.
MAC always gives free samples of any pourable products, so I have never purchased this! The downside is that when I'm in a rush, I get clumsy with the little sample jar! I apply NW45 on my eyelid as an eye primer before putting on my eye shadows. Not only is it good in reducing creasing/fading, it also makes the colour on my eyelid stand out more!
I apply this all over the eye area as a primer before putting on my eye shadows. It helps to reduce creasing/fading throughout the day. I don't use it on my face; I just can't be bothered!
This nail polish colour has many different looks to it. On the Essie website, this colour looks like a yellow-beige. In the actual bottle, it looks like a peachy-nude. Three coats on my toes looks like an opaque cool beige. One coat on my fingers over French Tip White looks like a sheer beige. The colour lasted for two weeks on both my hands and feet without chipping. Very nice for a "natural" French Manicure.

The alcohol content really irritates my nose, so I have to hold my breath while spraying this. The cap is annoying to take off and put back on when in a hurry. Otherwise, this is a really nice EDT. The website describes it as fresh and delicate. I agree that it smells very fresh. To me, it smells like mint and flowers that you would find in a field or a meadow. I mix this with Citrella for a crisp, sweet scent.

The alcohol content seriously irritates my nose, so I have to hold my breath when I spray this. The cap is annoying to take off and put back on when you're in a hurry. Otherwise, I like this. It's very tart. The website describes it as citrusy, energetic, light, and zesty. When I smelled the tester at TBS, I thought it was a bit TOO citrusy, so I mix it with Minteva. It really wakes you up.

The alcohol irritates my nose right after I spray this but fades away quickly. The lime smell is refreshing. I work two jobs, and I keep a bottle of this at my day job to spritz on before going to my evening job. I hope this scent doesn't get discontinued!

This is a good lotion. It's not too thick or thin. The lime smell is very noticeable. Hopefully, Avon won't discontinue this scent!

I really hope that Avon doesn't discontinue this scent! This shower gel is great. A little bit on a bath pouf makes lots of lather. The lime smell is very tart, but I like it. Wakes you up in the morning!
