My new HG! It makes you truly glow. It's like a golder Springsheen blush. It provides a healthy glow which is never overpowering. I find myself reaching for it more than my others. I think the packaging is kind of tacky and they should get rid of the crappy brush. Other than that, the most amazing perfect blush I have ever used! For reference, I am NC40 in MAC and Barcelona in NARS Sheer Glow. Edit: ive decided that unless i blend blend blend, its to frosty. but still a great color!

I got this bc of all the reviews. First off, the thing is super bulky. I couldn't even get my lashes in it. The handles are to far apart and to large. Overall, the thing is way to big! I will be going back to my Shu.
LOVE LOVE LOVE!! It's everything I wanted beauty marked to be. I love wearing it as a liner over black greasepaint. It has fallout but nothing major. The pan is huge and will last forever. This is def. one of my fave eyeshadows!
This is a great barbie pink! I love creams but they tend to be a bit streaky, as is this one but I was able to get two coats that went on evenly. I find this brand doesn't chip for a week and the colors are vibrant. THe price, color and quality are perfect!

I have gone through 3 of these. It gives a perfect sun kissed glow. My boyfriend used to ask what was missing on the days I didn't use it! I've since moved on to NARS casino and Smashbox suntan matte. Mostly bc this makes a mess but I still keep one on my vanity bc sometimes I miss it =) You have to be careful tho.....too much, and you look dirty. You have to use a light hand and buff it in!
My mother slathers her face in this every night and just got a wrinkle about a year ago. FYI, she is 44. Naturally, I followed. This stuff heals any dry patches overnight and my skin feels so smooth and supple in the AM. It also has sooo many uses. I apply to my lips day and night. I apply to my daughters legs (they are VERY DRY) and it soothes her skin right away. I recommend this for everything!
I use this day and night. It beats hign end moisterizers big time. I love it! Makes my skinlook amazing and keeps my very dry skin from feeling tight.
MY HG!!! I have been using this for years. After overtweezing in my teen years, I only half of my brows lol. This pencil looks natural and matches my brows perfectly (mink brown). I buy two at a time bc sometimes its hard to find the color I use. The only thing that bothers me is that halfway down the pencil it starts lookng waxy and I have to open a new one. But whatever, $1 makes it ok!
When I tried it on at MAC, I fell in love. I only wore it once afterwards but it just didn't look right. My lips looked splotchy and uneven, so I put it up for swap. Today I decided to try it one more time so I put it on over stripdown and now I know why I bought it! It really is a nice color and makes a nice nude but I wouldn't buy it again.

I got this as an extra. I LOVE IT!! It's ultra smooth. Honestly, I cant stop rubbing my lips together. It's very shiny and long lasting. I will def. be buying this over & over again!
I used this for my dads wedding 9 years ago and then lost it. I had no idea what the name was and then one day I remembered and ran to MAC. I used it everyday for years until one day, I decided I needed more than one shade of lipstick lol. But I love it. It looks perfect on my NC40 complexion. It brightens my whole face up. Def. a good color!
This is the only lipstick in my whole stash that is more than halfway gone at the moment. I love it! It goes with almost everything. Nice light pink that can compliment almost any skin tone!
Palettes -Urban Decay - Book of Shadows Vol. II [DISCONTINUED]

LOVE LOVE LOVE! The colors are very pigmented, easy to blend and smooth as butter! My faves so far are AC/DC and Mushroom. For the price, you can't go wrong. All those colors for $48 is fabulous!! My only gripe is the stupid pull out drawer. I don't need the top part that opens up to a small catalog. I would much prefer the palette to open than slide out. Other than that, perfect!!
I got mine at walgreens for $4.99 so the price was perfect. I used it for about a week. My lashes have never looked so beautiful, seperated, black and long. It would have been the perfect mascara, except that it smudged like crazy! The mascara never really seems to dry, you can lightly rub your finger on the underside of your lashes and end up with color on your finger. I looked like a raccoon a couple of hours after application. Even tho my lashes looked like falsies, the smudges under my eyes made me look like I haven't slept in ages. So, no, I won't be buying this again. If anyone knows of something that provides the same look w/o the smudges, let me know!
I got this in a tube with 33% more. At first, It felt great. Nice tingle, made my skin feel nice. The next day...not so good. My face was itchy and for the nxt week, had dry patches all over my face. I will not be using this again.
