i love this paint. it can be a little intimidating but if you are patient with it and use the right tools it can be quite lovely. i like to wear it on the lid with lots of blacktrack fluidline at night and smudged lightly in the corners with neutral or gold shadows during the day. i would strongly suggest getting this shadow if you have green eyes. it makes green eyes look amazing. also makes a nice blush. once when i wore this at a party a guy told me i must be a superhero because i looked like i had lazers shooting out of my eyes. i don't know what ot think about that but i thought i'd add it in. i would repurchase this. it's a little hard to work with but it's worth it. i which it came in different packaging, but i'm not alone on that.
Lip Gloss -Lancome - Juicy Tubes Pop - Cool Fuchsia

this is the only JT i own (so far) and i wear it a lot. it's a good purse size. i also love it because i have very pigmented lips, but this still shows up on me as bright pink! has good lasting power and a nice scent. i just wish it came in tube and wand form. i apply it with a brush at home but when i'm out it's not easy to get an even application from the tube.
this is a neat blue-pink. the frost finish is really nice. looks great with dervish lipliner and morning glory lustreglass. i don't use it that often because it's a little too much unless you're really in the mood or it's nighttime or i am matching it to my pink outfit, which i have been known to do even though it's a little trashy. i don't think i'd repurchase this but i will never have to.
i got a sample of this as an extra in a swap and make the mistake of spraying it on my self. it smells like a clean portapotty, very chemical and powdery and quite unpleasant. this is an old lady perfume. hate is a very strong word, and that is why i am going to use it with rive gauche, an awful, horrific strong scent. maybe it just smells bad on me. maybe it hates me too. whatever it is, i hate rive gauche and hope i never come in contact with it again, ever.

great stuff! i found this when i was looking for a replacement for my fekkai glossing cream, and this stuff is so much better: smells better and works better. it's not that expensive considering i only have to use a tiny pea sized amount on my entire head to get my hair shiny and gorgeous. it'll take forever to use it up! makes me hair smell amazing! would repurchase for sure. edit: last night a guy told me my hair smelled really great and 'special' and 'different from other girls'. so i'm not the only one that loves the smell. another edit: my hair just keeeps getting softer and softer and shinier as i use this every day. it's not jut a great styling product but also evidently really great for the health of my hair as well.
Lip Gloss -Dessert Beauty - Deliciously Kissable Plumping Lip Fragrance -Creamy

creamy is delicious. i don't care that i have to reapply it all day because i love reapplying it. it makes my lips all tingly and smells amazing, like vanilla and steamed milk.
LOVE this. it is my HG purse gloss. tastes delicious (peaches and french vanilla!). all my beaus adore it. smells wonderful. makes my lips tingle when i put it on. i just wish the tube was shorter and fatter so it was easier to keep in my little purse and that it wasn't so very expensive.
looked chalky and not that shiny on me. i was expecting a lighter, shinier, smoother silver and this didn't deliver. showed up as a darker bluish grey. i think i need a whiter based silver. probably just too cool-toned/blue for me (NC20 olive skin, green eyes, reddish brown hair).
LOVE this l/g. it is the best long wearing gloss i've ever had. it does not come off as long as you don't eat anything. it is also a great color. it looks really red in the tube, but goes on sheer unless you really pile it on. i wear it buy itself for a subtle red wet lip look, or over clinique angel red for a more high impact look. the only complaint i have is that my guy said that when he kissed me when i was wearing it it was like 'eww kissing ricepaper'. but i still gave it five lippies because i don't care. it still looks fabulous!
as with most MAC e/s colors, this is very unique. it's a deep purple that flashes blue and pink. a lot of the time purple e/s makes me look tired, but i love this! i like to wear it at the corners of my eyes with pink papillon and with clinique high impact e/s in sugarberry. also looks great with blueish green shades like meadowland and with fuschia pigment. looks nice as a liner too. really brings out the blue in my green eyes.
this smells terrible. i actually liked it at first, but it gets to be cloying. smells like hawaiian punch, as others have noted. also reminds me of rotting bubble gum or artificial grape. my cousin wears this scent. says her boyfriend loves it. eh.
i don't use this very often because it's a little too dramatic for me and i like darker liners. it make a great night-look. it's a really neat shade of gold/green that looks nice with my pale green eyes. looks great with MAC white gold pigment. it has fantastic staying power and is easy to apply. the brush it comes with is great! i like to wear it only on my lower lashline 'winged' a little, with black liner on top and gold e/s, which gives me a kind of egyptian-y, cleopatra look.
this is a very pretty, wearable shade of deep green. i'd say it was a replacement for MAC's humid colorwise, but not quality-wise. this is a great way to try out MAC humid's color without buying it. i paired this with MAC goldmine on the lid and clover on the outer corners and in the crease, with black eyeliner. very dramatic and different. i had to layer it a lot to get it to show up how i wanted it to. i did have a little green under my eyes at the end of my six hour dinner shift, but oh well, it's dark in the restaurant. would repurchase, or might purchase humid instead, we'll see how much i really use this color.
this and all the veluxe pearls have a gorgeous texture. expensive pink goes on so smoothly and is very pigmented. it is easy to blend. it's just delicious. it's a pinky gold bronze color. i almost would consider it a nuetral. it looks great with sketch, coppering, retrospeck, and mink pink. i also like to wear this in the crease with vapour on the lid and brown eyeliner for a natural but not boring look. overall a very nice, blendable, versatile e/s.
this color was way too dark for my NC20 olive skin. it looked muddy on me. i love other NARS blushes though, which is why i still gave this one four lippies! the texture and pigmentation are great, and i think NARS blushes are $$$ but worth the money. this color would look great on a darker skinned lady.
