I loooooove this! This is the only makeup item I carry with me throughout the day. This is the best lengthening mascara I have EVER used! Gives me the perfect wide-eyed look! HOLY GRAIL
Mascara -Max Factor - Lash Perfection in Deep Blue

had been a faithful Definicils user for about a year, but today I went to Meijer and grabbed this due to the great reviews.
This mascara is everything I love.
*1* Easy to wash off -I hate it when non-waterproof mascaras are so hard to wash off they become waterproof!
*2*I'm picky picky with thickening, if it's just a little too thick then I look like I grew a tarantula on my eye. The amount of thickening this mascara gives is absolutely perfect!
*3*Dries quickly! It doesn't rub off on my lid like some mascaras that stay wet forever.
*4*This actually LIFTS my lashes! My lashes are normally stick straight -no wait they actually droop down...it's pretty sad and they are very thin and light brown. When I apply this, my lashes look like I've curled them even when I haven't! Can't wait to see what this looks like with Fast Lash. EDIT: October 23, 06....this has reached HG status.
Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eyeliner Gel Graphic Brown [DISCONTINUED]

My very first fluidline and I am IN LOVE! Fluidlines where have you been all my life?? After seeing FOTDs with this, I knew I had to have it. I have dark brown eyes and this bronzy brown liner doesn't make them pop, but warmly enhances them when I line the top. Also, I use this every day and this looks good with about any shadow! Fluidlines are very easy to get the hang of (if you have the right brush) and have decent staying power. My only fret is that I don't know how long it'll take to dry out......
Gives an AWESOME sun kissed color to my cheeks! I have medium asian skin, so this might not look so great on people with lighter skin but otherwise, this is great! **UPDATE** August 30, 2006. I wear this EVERY DAY and am completely in love. ***ANOTHER UPDATE*** October 23, 06....this has reached HG status
I love how the lipstick packaging STAYS shut! I hate how some lipsticks' lids just sort of sit on top like they expect you to keep this sitting perfectly upright on your makeup table forever!? This color is a pale, fun, pink on my pigmented lips. It looks great with tanned skin and I'll find out in a few months if it looks good with pale skin! My only gripe is that it's kinda drying, so I have to put on sort of a glossy balm underneath. Great lipstick though!
I want to start off by saying that I LOVE MAC lipstick packaging! It's nice how it snaps shut so that no matter how much your purse gets jingled and jangled, it stays shut! Now on to the lipstick. Jubilee is my first lustre formula and I have to say that it's true love. It goes on soooo smooth, almost like gloss! The color is a basic medium nude, and on my tanned asian skin it looks great! There's still reminiscence of the color after the glossy part is gone. All in all, this shade is fantastic!
Eye Shadow -Cover Girl - CG Smoothers Gel Eye Color-- Aqua Flash

I think this might just be me...but I feel a cooling effect when I put it on. This goes on soooooo smoothly and is a bold aqua-blue color. I like this paired with gold eyeshadow or with a lavender wash. This also looks nice if I wear black e/l on top and a smudge of this on the bottom of outer corners. Nice product!!
Looked like a big fat tarantula on my eye. DON"T BUY THIS!
I'd say this is a nice lavender-silver on me. It shows up pretty light and looks nice as a wash, but doesn't satisfy as a liner. Great texture though!
I got this from a great swapper in the GWP size, and boy is this a beautiful color! It's a nice healthy bright pink glow and when I say bright, I mean glowy bright not ugly bright, lol! I can also wear this on my lips but I need a gloss over it and I can create a lovely nude lip. My only complaint is that it is sort of sticky. UPDATE: Not for my skin tone...too cool!! Drop 2 lippies
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Super Lustrous Lipgloss - Nude Lustre

I got this as an extra from an extremely generous swapper! This is GORGEOUS! I would've never tried SuperLustrous if it wasn't for her. In the tube, this shade isn't so attractive, but applied it looks heavenly! This is the perfect peach nude gloss for me.
This was RAOK'd to me by an awesome MUAer! Now on to the brush....This is true love. I've never been able to apply pigments or loose shadows like this before! I have seriously found treasure! HUGE RAVE
Soft, applies evenly, doesn't shed, and professional looking! Need I say more?
Got this in a swap and I have to say I LOVE it! At first, if I glob it on like regular lipgloss, it's horribly frosty. Frosty = not for me! However, I wear a nude lipstick underneath and I apply this very carefully on top, it creates an absolutely beautiful nude-peach lip. I like how it's slightly goopy, but not sticky. RAVE!
Eyeliner -Bare Escentuals - Soft Black liner shadow
glowstix813 7/25/2006 5:33:00 PM
HUGE RAVE for this! I had been sticking to pencil liner pretty much...forever until an awesome MUAer included a sample of this as an extra! It's smooth and a wonderful velvety grey-black shade. Looks like I'll have to buy this!
