I got this in the darkest shade, I think it is called "ebony" and it looks very natural with my black hair...better, way better than the black-brown eyeshadow I used before to fill in the brows. I will definitely repurchase.
Mascara -Make Up For Ever - Smoky Lash Extra Black Mascara

One great mascara, which actually does NOT smudge under your eyes finally!!! Very important! You can put a couple of layers on (which is not really necessary, because it gives volume and length with the first coat in my opinion) without clumping though. Definitely worth the money!
A great shampoo, which is good for my long and colored hair. It detangles good, even without using a conditioner...that's all I can say. I love the scent and you don't have to use alot of product to get your hair clean because it's really concentrated. Would buy again.
Well, it only gets 4 stars because of it's pinkish undertone which is not too good for me but I still use it as a finishing powder now that I got it, because it really works well and keeps my face shine-free all day. You get a lot for your money (I bought it over ebay, so I couldn't see the color really..), that's true and a little goes a long way. The packaging could be improved though. I would recommend to use it with a powder brush and not with the buff/sponge that comes with it.
This is one of my favorite fragrances, very citrus-y and light. It has a strong staying power but it's not overpowering at the same time. Very important to me is that it's got all natural ingredients as I'm prone to getting headaches alot from regular scents/fragrances and can't almost wear anything without getting either a migraine or headache half an hour later. This brand is the big exception! I like their scents and am happy with it.
This is a great body cream and I love the lemony scent! I can't complain about anything but the price...I got it in a set from Sephora, together with the perfume and lip treatment and everything is great and has this beautiful lemon scent, not too overpowering and slightly sweet. I would definitely buy the fragrance again!
This is a great face cleanser, just the price is a bit steep. I got it from Sephora as a deluxe sample, but because of the price I wouldn't probably buy it as a full-size product. Sorry, too expensive..though I LOVE all fresh products.
Not sure what to write about these pencils...the ones I chose were with glitter and had not really good staying power so I returned them. Stay away from them if you look for something with staying power for your waterline, I'm talking about the glittery ones. The other ones may be allright. I may try them out. But the price is a bit steep..
Eye Shadow -Kat Von D - True Romance Palette in Poetica

A very good quality palette as well! I own all the other ones, too and I like this one for a purple smokey eye in particular. Still, you can create also other looks with it, which I love, so you're not only forced to do just one style. With these palettes you can really go crazy and be so creative and however you blend and combine the colors - I think, it always looks good! The only thing I don't like is the cream shadow which pretty much was already dried out when the palette arrived. Same with the metal orchestra palette, and I don't think there's much you can do about dried out cream eye shadows...oh well.
Right now, this is one of my favorite palettes of all times! All shadows are super blendable and you're really able to create a variety of looks with it, from very natural looking to a heavy smokey eye. Using her "skin eye primer" with it, it helps me keep the shadows stay vibrant and stay on all day. A true masterpiece!!!
These are my HG lipsticks!!! No matter what shade, the consistency is just PERFECT!!! I am not a lipstick person in general, because they usually fade pretty quick after lunch, so I usually stick to lipliners. Now that I found the whole universe of painted love in a lipstick bottle...I'm never going back to my shabby lipliners (although I tried anything from low-end to expensive) any soon.VERY happy with all the shades and the bright variety they offer. To some people they seem a bit drying, but if you put a lip base underneath, you can eliminate this as well as make the lipstick stay put all day too. Problem solved!
I am one of the few who absolutely LOVE this product! I got this together in the package with the "Tattoo Chronicles Vol.I" and I am right now talking about the color "skin" for everyday use. I think it brings out every eye shadow color really beautyfully and it stays put all day. These who complain...I'm not sure...do you use skin primer underneath your makeup at all? I apply skin primer, my makeup, face powder and then when I do my eyes...I apply the eye primer before I apply eye shadow of course...and it does stay all day. Maybe this is the key? Just a hint from my side for anybody who may have problems with eye shadow staying power. I will definitely buy this primer again, I even think it's better than Too Faced's Shadow Insurance or UDPP. Seriously. But then again, it also depends on your skin type and preference. So I can only speak for myself...but I can definitely recommend!
This is a great product! I don't only use it as a concealer, but overall as a makeup for my face. I use the shade porcelain, which is great for me. I'm amazed by the great range of colors and that she really came out with a great light shade for fair skinned people like me. The concealer is oil-free and with the right primer underneath it stays in place all day! Wonderful.
It's great for contouring your face and the flat color suits even fair skin tones, which surprised me. I use it together with the other sculpting color "sculpt" for blending in and out and it looks quite natural. I'm NC15 and this is by far the best sculpting/contouring powder I've found.
I was a little let down by the color difference in the pan and then how it actually how it looks like when you wear it on your skin. I expected a more taupe, cool brown. Indeed it's a soft warm beige, it turns that way on my skin for some reason. Not that it doesn't look good, but I'm not a fan of bronzers and warm blush tones to begin with. That's why I was so happy I found this one. Oh well, I guess it brings out the contours in your face pretty well and suits about every skin tone. I just wish it was a bit more cooler-toned.
