Lipstick -Bath and Body Works - feel good lip color

I have this in Sugarberry, a pretty neutral pinky-cinnamon nude shade. The quality of the lipsticks is pretty good--nothing too outstanding, but decent. Staying power is average.
This is a really pretty pinky-cinnamon shade that is really flattering. The texture of the l/g is nice and thick, and it imparts a great, long-lasting shine. HOWEVER, I just can't get over the smell. I am not usually affected by smells from products that much, but DUDE this is soooo overpowering... it's like a crotchety old lady smacked you in the lips hard with her powder puff. Blechhh!
This is a nice neutral hazelnut shade with a touch of pink. Perfect for those days when you don't want to debate too much about what lipstick to wear. I think it would look great with a wide variety of skintones, save maybe really PPP gals.
This color is not champagne at all, like the name implies, but a taupey milk chocolate color. It can make my lips look corpselike if worn alone. However, when I wear it with MAC Syrup l/s on top, it looks amazing. The quality of the lipstick is just okay, and I really don't like the cheap packaging, but hey what do you expect for $2, right?
Name describes it exactly -- a berry bronze. It's an inoffensive shade, but to me that means just BLAH. I never really reach for it, although the smell and texture is nice.

Bleah, this was just too frosty and wash out-y for me and my unpigmented lips. Nice smell and texture, though.

Love the smell and the sheer, light texture. This lipstick is a gorgeous pinky-terracotta and really warms up the complexion. One of my favorites!
Lipstick -L'Oreal - Endless Lipstick in Eternally Mauve

While this is a beautiful color -- a plum-bronze-mauve -- I just don't reach for it that often. However, staying power is GREAT, and it feels nice and smooth going on the lips. Love the sleek tube, too.
I love this -- it's a color that indeed, looked too "Hoochie" in the tube for me to wear, but it actually looks great! I usually don't wear dark lipsticks, but this one is gorgeous and actually not too dark at all -- it's a beautiful shimmery mauve-cocoa that would work well on darker LLLs, MMMs, and beyond. The nutty chocolate smell is great, and it lasts a long time to boot.
This is a beautiful sheer warm pinky-red that gives a fresh, bitten look to the lips. I love this gloss for a natural yet brightening look. The only bad thing I can think of is the smell is kinda nasty, but I don't really care toooo too much about smell, so I deal. :)
This is a beautiful soft red-brown color. I am very wary of dark lipsticks/glosses -- they make me look scary -- but this gloss looks really nice and polished. I took one lippie off because it wears off kind of unevenly sometimes, so my lips look slightly blotchy.
Liquid -Almay - Almay Amazing Lasting Foundation ] [DISCONTINUED]

This is a great foundation if you need your makeup to LAST -- it really does last all day and looks great even at the end of the day. However, because it is long-lasting, it is kind of hard to take off. Thus, I just use it on special occasions. I like my Kinetin foundation way more.
I like the smell, the texture, and the color of the gloss in the tube, but it is just too bright and Gwen Stefani-ish for my skin (NC30 with olivey undertones). Also, the tube is prone to leakage.
One of my HG glosses -- gorgeous warm honey YLBB brown that smells like a honeycomb. The texture is thick and the gloss it's long lasting. One minor issue is that the tube is prone to leakage, but other than that -- FABULOUS!
Eye Shadow -Too Faced - Eyeshadow Duo in Sassy Wahine

These two are gorgeous shades, but I'm still debating whether they go well together. Anyway, the shadows themselves are very silky and glide on, but unfortunately they don't have much staying power.
