Looks like people haven't reviewed this polish in quite a while, so I'll pick up where the reviews left off. This is a very pretty blue with barely there shimmer. I was debating on this color between two other colors (a green color & and this purple pink shade: both colors I forgot the exact name of but they were both Essie colors) Anyway, this color chipped on me after the first day but I wasn't wearing a base coat which may have been the problem (but a top coat: Essie's good to go). I like buying Essie polishes at a salon vs. the drugstore because I feel as if the polished are better (maybe it isn't but the 2 other colors I've purchased from Essie were from the drugstore and sucked) Anyway, I won't repurchase only because the color seems pretty dupable.
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Expert Wear Eyeshadow in Champagne Fizz

Nice pigment, I used to use this all over my lid to give it some sparkle. Now, its too shimmery for me so i'll definitely purchase the matte if I see it. Amazing quality for a drugstore eyeshadow. I won't use this as a highlight because I don't.really like highlighting my cheekbones. Won't repurchase since the shimmer is overwhelming me me.
My first blush infact, so Im not even a big blush person. No pigment at all. I bought this in Central Park Pink and I'm disappointed! The price is cheap but not worth it. The brush sheds and is absolutely worthless. The packaging, I have no problems with. A good amount is given. No way am I repurchasing.
Cleansers -Aveeno - Smart Essentials Pore Purifying Facial Wash
BeautifulConverse 7/18/2012 5:52:00 PM
I like this a lot. It smells wonderful! A mix of flowers and fruit but yes its the southernwood. I wish this made my skin feel really smooth like their foaming facial wash, but it gets the job done. I use 2 pumps twice daily unless I use a facial scrub. I like the pump since it locks and the pump opens with no problems. I might repurchase but this isn't my HG facial cleanser.
Hello volume! This is a nice mascara. I tried this to step away from my Lashblast Volume for a minute (HG) to try a different mascara. This is comparable but this dries a lot quicker but that's not something I love, this is because it is harder to apply a second coat, believe me no where near impossible though. Also this clumps less then Lashblast Volume but there's less product (but is $3 less). This mascara has its "bad days" but its okay. Repurchasing!
Treatments -Sally Hansen - Instant Cuticle Remover

First cuticle remover and I'm really impressed! About a week before I bought this I got a manicure and I didn't realize how much removing your cuticles can make a difference in your manicure! So after I read the great reviews I purchased this amazing product which will now be a staple for me! And plus this was the last one on the rack (no wonder why). Makes my manicure look awesome! I got this for $5 and I love the transparent bottle to see how much product I have left and the squeeze tube is nice. Thanks MUA for the suggestions!
So I own Neptune- a mix between colbalt blue & navy blue with shimmer with silver shimmer, Olympia- a matte subtle mint green, Purple Diamond- a soft purple with silver shimmer, & Cinderella (already reviewed). The shimmer polishes are sheer but definitely buildable with 3 coats. For the matte I can use only 2 coats. $1.99 each, love them! Quality is so comparable to Essies's (to me at least) since there's wide color choice as well. There isn't any shades I'm in absolute love with but ill be on the hunt! Your nuts if you didn't realize I'm repurchasing!
Good got ms. Molly, what a find! Like others have stated, this is definitely on the sheer side but, with 3 coats it gets the job of being its true color in the bottle. Also all the SC nail polished that contain shimmer are sheer so it isn't suprising to me.Like the beautiful Disney princess, her signature color is baby blue and I always think pink is a great color to pair it with. So ultimately, this is a baby blue with pink shimmer. Immediately caught my at the nail polish rack at the drugstore! And only $1.99, what more to ask? Repurchasing!
Finally! A scrub that leaves my skin squeaky clean but doesn't have the salicylic acid that isn't necessary for my skin. It smells wonderful and really exfoliates my skin well. I have a lot of clogged pores that makes my skin texture to not live up to its full potential so this makes my skin feel so much smoother after! I get this $3-6 depending where I purchase this. Totally repurchasing!

Polishes -Sally Hansen - Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear in 'Coral Reef'
BeautifulConverse 7/8/2012 10:50:00 PM
This is a beautiful pink color with coral undertones. (So it really isn't a true coral) This is matte & looks beautiful with 2 coats and a top coat. The price is awesome. Will totally repurchase!
Nice moisturizer. I don't need intense moisture for my normal skin. I wish the cap opened for me to see how much product is left. A lippies off for no SPF. not very expensive and makes ky skin feel replenished. Will repurchase.
Powder -Sephora - Mineral Double Compact Foundation SPF 10
BeautifulConverse 7/8/2012 10:36:00 PM
I like this quite a lot! I purchased the Buildable Coverage package at Sephora, this came with it. (Only it isn't a double compact since it comes with the sponge anyway, product is the same though) If you use a seperate brush with it, my Revlon kabuki to be exact, it gives a nice, light coverage which I love. I'm R15, this is good when I have a bit of color in the summer but its a bit dark for my "regular" skin tone. I love the packaging, it snaps perfectly & there's a good amount of product. Kinda pricey alone but totally worth it, especially with the set. A total re-buy!
Scrubs -Neutrogena - Oil-Free Acne Wash Redness Soothing Gentle Scrub
BeautifulConverse 7/8/2012 10:22:00 PM
This is a great scrub. I don't (or ever had) acne, but I did purchase this to combat the bright, red rosiness of my cheeks. This also helped the bumps and dirt on my nose go from bumpy to smooth! I won't repurchase only because I don't need the salicylic in the formula and redness isn't much of a concern anymore for me (I'm just applying a little more concealer).
First, I'll give my review of the eyeliner part since this can also be used as a brow pencil. This is terrible for an eyeliner. It stays roughly a half hour on my waterline & I have to tug for any color payoff for my lashlines. It's way too waxy for me. I purchased the colors Taupe & Stable: Taupe for my brows & Stable as an eyeliner. Now onto the brow part. This is fantastic! The Taupe isn't taupe. It's auburn with taupe undertones, ideal for redheads like myself but not ideal for blondes wanting a true taupe for their brows. I just put a bit of pressure with fast, short strokes & blend it with a concealer brush. Defined brows instantly! The price is obviously great. $1! Packaging is good, lot of product but could come with a sharpener since one is needed. (I just bought an NYC brand sharpener for a dollar) Will repurchase!
