I love Paul (Paul is my boyfriend's name, but I'm talking about the gloss here.) It's an orangey peach that's not too opaque. It appears to be a pinky peach on my lips. Paul, the boyfriend, approved and was slightly amused to see his name on my lipgloss (though it wasn't named after him.) Holly is also pretty. It's a sheer, bronzey peach with shimmer.
Zzzzzzzzz. These Luella TLC's bore me to death. Trot On is a weird orange color, and though it's quite sheer, it manages to be too pale and too frosty on my lips. If it didn't have that cutesy sticker on the top, I would've kept on walking by (I'm a sucker for packaging-- that needs to stop!) I was so unimpressed by these TLC's; too greasy and not moisturizing enough. Makes me appreciate Prada balms so much more.
I love you, MAC, but you've really been disappointing me lately. Pink Pink is the most boring (yet strangely coveted) TLC ever. If it weren't for the cutesy packaging, I don't think I would've thought twice about it. It really just looks like nothing on me. I'll stick to my clear Prada balm, thanks.
Static is a bluish purple opalescence. It's too funky for me to wear on my nails (I usually wear whites, pinks, reds, nothing adventurous there.) I will, however, wear just about anything on my toes. Pretty color, but doesn't last more than a day without a top coat before chipping.
Urban Decay polishes are of wonderful quality-- it stays on without a top coat and without chipping for a few days (and then a top coat usually extends its life by a few more days.) The color is rich and perfect in consistency. I love the colors I own (Toxin, O, and Metropolitan.)
Toxin is one of my favorite nail colors! It looks exactly like MAC Ruby Red pigment mixed with clear polish, which is what I wore often before I found Toxin. Urban Decay polishes are of wonderful quality-- they stay on without a top coat and without chipping for a few days (and then a top coat usually extends its life by a few more days.) The color is rich and perfect in consistency.
Eye Shadow -Tony & Tina - herbal char'kohl - Anticipation

Anticipation is a really pretty color-- very similar to MAC Pink Pearl pigment in pencil form. The texture is very smooth and the pencil glides on. It never needs to be warmed up or softened. It does also feel slightly oily though, but it lasts when worn over a good primer.
A true honey scent! I definitely don't get any patchouli as someone mentioned below (I abhor patchouli and it would be rather obvious to me if it contained any.) It smells like raw honey, not the honey you find in the bear container. :) The staying power is awful, but for the price, respritzing is welcomed.
Eye Shadow -Tony & Tina - Universal Color Dust in Shooting Star

Shooting star is a beautiful light gold with a metallic sheen. It's easy to wear with many other colors (pinks, oranges, greens... just about anything.) The pigment is so silky (much finer than MAC pigments) and applies like a dream.
Fragrances -Tony & Tina - Vibrational Remedy Fragrance

Sweet ripened mangoes! :D :D :D It reminds me a lot of Salvatore Ferragamo Incanto Dream (which I also hear is a lot like Escada Sexy Graffiti.) Vibrational Remedy has a prominent mango note, whereas Incanto Dream is more of a blend of mango with other tropical fruits. I found this at Marshall's for $15 so I bought two bottles since I had been wanting to try this for the longest time. It lasts a little longer than an hour on me, but for the price, I can spray liberally.
It's not as tangy as an actual pomegranate, and if it weren't labelled "Pomegranate" I probably would have never guessed it. It smells more like a ripened red fruit accord. It's very sweet, and lasts suprisingly long. I sprayed it on myself last night and still smell it this morning.
Flaming Dust is a beautiful, sheer cherry red. No matter how much you put on, you will never end up with a frighteningly bright color. I imagine it'd be great for someone afraid of reds or thinks reds will never work on her. Non drying formula, decent staying power.
Baby blue in the tube, light lavender pink on the lips. It's really pretty and fun to experiment with (particularly useful for cooling down warm colored lipsticks/glosses.) I don't use it often, but it's definitely nice to have on hand.
At first glance, this lipglass appears to be unwearable because it's bright fuchsia with a blue tinge. It's actually one of my favorites though because of it's versatility. You can wear it sheerly and it shows as a light berry stain, or opaque and it's a full on fuchsia. Definitely one of the LE things to hunt down.
This looks clear most of the time, but in certain lights, it has the prettiest golden sheen. I could take or leave the glitter since not much really comes out of the tube (maybe it's just my tube.) I'd rather have lots of glitter or none at all. Very pretty nonetheless, and easy to wear over other lipglasses.
