Palettes -Stila - Vintage Hankie 4 Pan Palette - Sage

I would not buy this again, because I think for the size it is ridiculously expensive. That said, this is my first time trying Stila and I really love the color combination in this palette. The blush is a great shade, and the e/s is beautiful on me. I am a PPP with red hair and brown eyes. I just wish they had thrown in some convertible color or lipstick in this palette, it would have made it worth the money then...
I bought this with new packaging, it's in a flat pink cardboard holder that is held shut magnetically, kind of like a stila cardboard palette, and it has a window in the front holding the shade. I have it in pink, and I cannot believe the quality of this item. I went to a local beauty supply store since my sister is a cosmetology student. It cost me less than $7, but it normally retails for $12. Either way I would repurchase this, as well as other shades. Very high quality, nicely pigmented, can be used wet or dry. Pink is a soft, light pink, and has a definate shimmer to it.
I got this in the kit that comes in the cute little tin, with lotion, body mist, perfume, and lipgloss. The scent is a very light floral, definately synthetic. I love this perfume, it is one of the few I can wear without getting a headache. It's a great everyday scent, and I even got a compliment on it from my boyfriend, who usually does not notice things like that. I would definately repurchase
The color combo is very pretty, I've been having fun playing with the colors. I only use the darkest color as a liner, and all the colors are very wearable.
I got this for christmas and have been using it everyday. All items are of awesome quality and great pigmentation. I even love the lipglosses, esp. roar. I don't think the fragrance is overpowering at all. Cat and mouse are a bit much by themselves, but over roar they look great!
I have this in Glisten up, I believe the name is. It's kind of a very shimmery nude. This is very pretty on, but like an of the 'wet look' lipsticks, does not last very long. I just look at this product as a gloss type of item, high maintenenance but very pretty, wet shine. I would repurchase this.
Eyes -Borghese - Perlati Eye Scream Shimmer Shadows

This is a great product, the pigmentations is wonderful. I have never used a mac pigment, but many have told me this is quite comparable to them. I also bought this on ebay, unable to find it at the borghese counter near me or anywhere else. These colors are gorgeous. I'm a bit messy with loose stuff, and to me they were a bit too full, so I had a bit of trouble the first time I used them. I would definately repurchase these, even though I think they will last me a long time.
Eyeliner -Jordana - Color XTend Eyeliner in Just Pearly

I love this eyeliner! Glides on smooth, and the color is great. Good for people who want a light shimmery line, but hate white eyeliner. This color is beautiful, and lasts long!
This is a nice lip balm, although nothing special by itself. Used with the mask, it's very nice. Kind of like vaseline, but not as gooey. I guess there are a lot of products like this, but I use this and I like it.
Lip Treatments -Mary Kay - Satin Lips - Lip Mask only

I don't know how I lived without this in the past. Takes flakiness and dryness off of my lips, makes them very smooth and feeling hydrated.
Lip Treatments -Mary Kay - Satin Lips mask and balm

This set is really great. The balm is very silky and nice. Nothing really new or special, but it does moisturize and last fairly long. The mask, however, is a godsend, it takes any dryness right out of my lips. Now that I have used this, I don't think I could ever do without it.
I love this palette, it has really great colors, especially Sungloss. I won't describe the colors because it has already been done perfectly. Although I reach for the limited ed. one more often, this has still become a staple to me!
Palettes -Jane - Limited Edition Holiday Eye Palette

Colors are already described perfectly, so I wont bother. This palette is a hit with me. I use it basically every day, especially the two larger pans and the medium flesh toned pan. Excellent wear and pigmentation!
I really like this mascara, but I can't give it a five, because I'm still holding out for something that will make my skinny, short eyelashes look fake. I know I'm only wishing:) Definicils makes my lashes look the blackest ever, and does lengthen them. No thickening though. I would definately repurchase this mascara!
Eye Zings are hit or miss with me. I tend to like their very light colors and shimmery colors, but their darker matte colors leave much to be desired, even when used wet. So for highlight colors or shimmers, this brand is a winner. For darker crease colors or liners, I don't bother with them, except for Clubbing, which is black with glitter.
