It is simiar to MAC Twig but more moisturising and natural looking. I find that Twig can appear too pasty and thick but this revlon color is the perfect consistency. Highly recommended.
Eye Shadow -L.A. Colors - 5 Color Metallic Eyeshadow in Darling

The two browns are beautiful for the eyes. The white is excellent for highlighting the tearduct, browbone, and cupid's arrow. The pink works really well at highlighting the top of the cheekbones, forehead and chin. Amazing quality payoff for such an inexpensive makeup. Staying power is not bad at all.

Very compact and easy to carry in your makeup bag. The color is blendable and buildable. I love that it gives a natural-looking, healthy glow.
Polishes -Rimmel - Lasting Finish Pro Enamel all shades, new square bottle
h20liliz 12/12/2010 2:47:00 PM
I bought this in "Desert Rose" which is a really pretty peachy-nude. It looks great with whatever outfit you are wearing. The brush is a flat brush that goes on really smooth. I makes the application so easy and absolutely fool-proof. Staying power was good. The nailpolish does thicken up after several usages. Would repurchase again.
Polishes -L.A. Colors - Color Craze Nail Polish in Radiation
h20liliz 12/12/2010 2:42:00 PM
I had painted my nails with L.A Color's "Black Velvet" and protected it with a layer of Witchcraft topcoat polish. To my surprise, it stayed on for about 10 days, with next to no chipping at all. I could have left it on longer but my nails were already growing out and around the cuticle area, the new nails were definately showing. Amazing quality for the price. Would repurchase again!
Separates/defines lashes and does not smudge. Excellent product! Good to use a voluming mascara like L'oreal's Volumunious first, let dry and then apply the Lash Blast to separate lashes and also to protect it mascara from smudging.
the smell of this perfume just puts me in a cheerful mood. to me, the scent is fruity (but not too sweet), fresh and clean (light). unfortunately, i have noticed that the scent fades quickly. it's still not enough to deter me from re-purchasing. i just hope that the next product they come up with will have more lasting power.
Eye Shadow -Ben Nye - Pearl Sheen Eye Shadow- Mango [PS-12]

i initially bought it as an eye shadow but have found a better use for it. since it is a beautiful peach color with a really nice pearly sheen, i decided to use it as an illuminator. i apply it on my cheekbones, temples and chin. the result is a really fresh, glowy, youthful look. i love it!
Lipstick -New York Color - Smooch Proof Long Wearing Lip Color
h20liliz 5/8/2010 1:49:00 AM
the lip color goes on smooth and does not dry out like covergirl's longwearing lip stains. i put it on in the morning, went to work, ate breakfast, ate lunch, went shopping after work and came home in the evening to find that the lip color was as good as i had first put it on in the morning. i've re-applied the clear gloss twice at work (after lunch and before going to the mall) to give my lips that plump, fresh look. there was no uneven fading or anything like that even after 12 hrs! very impressive. i highly recommend trying this. great product for very little $. i bought mine for less than $4.00 CND.
Skincare - Body -The Body Shop - Exfoliating Gloves

i bought mine at the dollar store. i use them mainly for my body but i also like to use it to exfoliate my face once in a while. it really reduces the amount of blemishes and acne since the pores are not clogged by dead skin. my makeup application goes on much smoother as well. this has been one of the BEST products ever. inexpensive and effective. i have NO complaints to report. i've re-purchased before and would not hesitate to re-purchase again when mine are worn out.
Pressed Powders -Cover Girl - Clean Pressed Powder Fragrance Free

This broke me out like crazy! As soon as I stopped using it, my skin cleared up. I will definately NOT re-purchase.
I love this nail color. I like to use it to create a french manicure. It is the best top coat/all over nail color. The sheer nude pink is so delicate and feminine. It even has some subtle shimmer. It is one of my favorite nail colors. I really hope Revlon will keep this as their permanent lines. It is classic.
I was really excited to try this out after reading all the great reviews about it on MUA. Unfortunately, this mascara did not work out for me. I found the formula to be super thick and heavy on the lashes. The huge brush did not help the situation. Application of the mascara kinda felt like spreading toothpaste across your lashes. No matter how you spread it, it was still too thick and goopy. As a result, any curl you may have had before, will now be flattened. When the mascara finally dries, the lashes end up feeling weighted down and stiff. I noticed smudgeing throughout the day as well. I would not buy this again.
This mascara did nothing for me. What a waste of money! I think it was partially due to the ill-design of the brush. The wand didn't pick p much product. I wasn't able to coat my lashes. Will not buy again.
When I first got this e/s, it became my staple. I've stopped using it for a while and have gone back to it again. The color is a very soft pink, with some gold glitter. The glitter seems to be a bit big, for my liking. By mid-day, I would find some sparklies on my lashes and on my cheeks. For this reason, I don't wear it all the time. This eyeshadow in "flushed" color is poorly made. However, I have tried other Presitge eyeshadows that are excellent in quality. I would not hesitate to buy more Prestige products, but just not this particular color again.
