This is my HG highlighter & base shadow! It's a gorgeous champagne color, goes on silky smooth, and is very shimmery! Perfect for an everyday base shade and looks beautiful under any shadow or alone! This should be a staple in everyone woman's makeup bag!
Prize is a pretty shimmery sheer gold dust. It's very pigmented and blends in very nicely. A little goes a long way! This shadow makes a great base and highlighter shade.
I love this mascara! I used to use it in high school, and for whatever reason I stopped using it, but I'm glad we've reunited! It creates long, dramatic lashes that refuse to clump! I had until recently been using DiorShow mascara, and I find that 2000 Calorie is just as good as far as the dramatic effect and no clumping- but last months longer since it doesnt dry out as fast. I love this mascara and I dont think we will ever have to part again!
Very beautiful color! It gives a nice soft peachy glow. I am medium skin toned and bought this online without seeing it in person, and I love it! It's such a flattering color and is perfect for many skin tones. I find that I reach for this ten times more than my Benefit Dandelion. I love the soft gold shimmer because it highlights cheekbones beautifully, and its very finely grained (no big specks of glitter). You cant go wrong with this blush!
I love this conditioner. It moisturizes well without weighing my hair down or making it greasy. It leaves my hair super soft, detangled, and shiny. Perfect for fine hair!
I love this shampoo. I doesnt weigh my fine hair down and it leaves my hair super shiny! I think it has very clean fresh scent. It does exactly what it says on the bottle. It's a perfect moisturizing shampoo for fine hair! I highly recommend the conditioner too!
I really like this duo. They are very beautiful colors, one is a cinnamon brown with shimmer and the other is a burgundy brown with shimmer. They are EXTREMELY pigmented, so you have to be very careful when applying! It has taken me some time to figure out the best way to use them without them looking too dark or scary for work, but now I really like them. I love that they are brown tones that arenít your typical, boring neutrals and have a more edgy look to them - while being appropriate of day and night. The only thing that I donít like is that they donít go on as smoothly as my other Nars duo. They seem to skip and donít go on evenly, so I end up having to blend them in a little better. Other than that this is a beautiful duo Ė Nars really knows what he is doing!
Iím in love with Earth Angel! The colors are so beautiful together and they look so pretty with my hazel eyes. They have a smokey eye effect, but a little more subtle. The olive green is very pretty on- I love the gold shimmer. The taupe is also a very pretty neutral. These shadows have such a smooth velvety texture, no skipping at all. They go on very evenly, and stay forever! I can apply them at 8 am and by 11 pm they look like I just applied them. They look beautiful with Nars Turkish Delight lip gloss!!
This is my first Nars lip gloss and Iím already hooked forever!!! Turkish Delight is such a versatile color for many different looks. It looks gorgeous with a dark smokey eye, and it looks equally as gorgeous with a more subdued day look. I am a PPP-MMM and it looks great with my complexion. I havenít used any other lip gloss since the day I got it! Unlike some of the previous reviews, I didnít notice a plasticy scent- in fact I donít notice a scent to it at all. I also havenít had any problems with it being messy or coming out goopy from the tube. I love the fact that there isnít any shimmer. It looks pretty bright in the tube, but goes on as a sheer light pink color. I didnít think it washed me out at all, but rather enhanced my skin tone. The only gripe I have is that it doesnít say on very long. I apply it at about 8:30 am and by about 11-11:30 am Iím due for another application.
Pressed Powders -Revlon - ColorStay Stay Natural Powder

I bought this powder a couple days ago with the colorstay foundation, and I am very pleased with it. It keeps my skin matte all day, and is still on at the end of the day- which is a huge plus for me! I havent had to reapply during the day yet, and it hasnt caused any breakouts so far. The powder runs a little darker than it shows on the package. I normally buy medium in pressed powders, but when I got home it was much darker than most medium-toned pressed powders I've had in the past. I had to return it for the light/medium color. Overall, I would definitely buy this again!
I just got this foundation a couple days ago and so far I'm in love! It has great coverage and even stays on the full 16 hours it claims! It works great with my combination skin - leaves a nice matte finish and pretty much stays that way all day. I also bought the colorstay pressed powder to go along with it, and I love them both. My skin looks absolutely flawless! The colorstay line has a ton of colors to match every skintone. This is the best drugstore foundation I've ever bought! I would definitley recommend this foundation to anyone with acne-prone or combination skin! Perfect!
Pressed Powders -L'Oreal - True Match Super-Blendable Powder

This powder is ok, nothing to write home about. The color selection is nice, they have probably every skin tone available. I dont think it blends that well, and it definitley doesnt last very long. I dont hate this product, but I think I'm going to try something else when I run out.
Moisturizers -Neutrogena - Combination Skin Moisture Oil Free
taracall10 8/3/2005 12:40:00 PM
I love love love this moisturizer! I have very dry patchy skin on my cheeks and a very oily t-zone, and this moisturizer does an awesome job controlling my skin's dual personality! It absorbs quickly so your face doesnt feel oily or greasy, and it is fragrance-free. This definitely keeps my skin looking matte and gives me such a beautiful complexion. I really like the packaging, the pump dispenser is nice. The only thing I dont like is that it doesnt contain any sunscreen! However, this is definitely my HG for a daily facial moisturizer!
Lip Gloss -Clinique - Color Surge Impossibly Glossy - Sure Thing
taracall10 8/3/2005 11:33:00 AM
I adore this lip gloss! Its a nice vibrant pink colour that goes on sheer and lasts forever! I have a medium complexion and it looks awesome with tanned skin, but I think this shade is very universal for all skin colours. It looks like your natural lips with a bit of color and shine. The only complaint that i have is the packaging. I dont like the tube it comes in at all; it makes it difficult for precise application since it squeezes out of a hole in the top so its hard to control the amount coming out. It's also hard to control where its going on your lips and applies unevenly. This would be 5 lippies if it had a sponge applicator! Other than that, I love the this colour and it makes my lips super shiny all day!
Wow! This mascara is definitely my HG! I absolutely love this product and I love the results! I have average length lashes that are aready naturally black, but they are stick straight. Unlike every other mascara brand out there I've tried, this one actually holds curl all day and definitely adds length! The best part, it doesnt clump! My routine has consisted of curling my lashes, putting on a thick coat, then curling them again once they've dried, and I have perfectly serparated clump-free lashes. (even after curling them dry!) I also dont mind the large brush. I dont necessarily think it helps with application, but I dont think it makes it more difficult either. I actually look forward to putting on my mascara in the morning now! I recommend DiorShow to every woman who appreciates long voluminous dramatic lashes. I will be buying this again! UPDATE: I no longer use Diorshow mascara. I was on my second tube when I realized that since it dries out in about a month, it wasnt worth the $23. This mascara is awesome if you dont mind repurchasing every 30 days. I have switched to MaxFactor 2000 Calorie, and it has all the drama for a quarter of the price.
