I think the name on this lip balm is totally deceiving. When I put this on it is clear - no color at all. Unlike alot of people I think the flavor is wonderful but the texture is too greasy and it wears off in minutes taking my lipstick color with it. I would not buy this lip balm again.
I bought this powder in supernatural because it was in the cutest tiniest little container. It is just perfect for tossing in my purse. This powder is perfect for the light touch-up of my complexion that I need each afternoon. This is oil free with micro milled powder that leaves a natural glow to your skin without looking shiney.
This lip gloss in milky pink is a staple of mine. I love the color and the texture is just right for lasting longer than your average gloss. A little dab goes a long way which makes the $17 price seem worth it.
I am a lip gloss fanatic and when I saw this name I just knew I had to have some of this Japanese product. I was so happy when I found a very nice swapper from MUA that had what looked like every product from Baby Pink on her swap list. She was nice enough to have a picture of the lot of cosmetics and we agreed on a very reasonable price. When I got her box it was just like Christmas. I love these glosses - they are just sticky enough to last a long time and very transparent. The girls in my office were so jealous when this package came in I ended up giving a few away. I love the glosses and the cheek gels and while I won't need any new ones for quite a while I would buys these again!
I normally read all the reviews I can find before I purchase any new cosmetic. This is one purchase that I made impulsively but I am glad that I did. I don't need full coverage foundation but I thought I would try something where I could take the tiniest bit of foundation and use it all over my face. I am fair and could have used either the #2 or the #3 color. The #2 was sold out at Nordstrom so I purchased #3. It does give medium to light coverage but that works well for me. This foundation left my skin with just the right amount of color and was not too matte or too shiney. The only problem I had was that I accidentally squirted a couple of spoonfuls of this foundation out of the tube when I sat on it (I do my make up sitting on my bed every morning). I scooped it up and put it in an empty lip balm container and will now carry that around in my purse. I think the complete coverage name is wrong for this foundation but I am still very pleased with my results.
Lotions/ Creams -L'Occitane - 20% Shea Butter Hand Cream

The scent on this hand cream is a little too strong and long lasting for my taste but the cream is very good at softening hands. I like the way it absorbs quickly into my hands and it only takes the tiniest amount so this tube will last a long time. I use this cream every day.
Do not be put off by the dark color of this lip tube. Ruby shoes is beautiful sheer magenta with a very slight golden shimmer that looks wonderful. I would never have bought this color from just looking at the dark dark pink tube that it is in. This color and lipstick lasts and lasts. It is from Lancome's spring line of colors so I will have to go buy some more before they move on to different colors.
Another rave for Nars lip lacquer in Butterfield 8! The tester looked scary to me - very dark brown but I swiped it on my hand and it was perfection. This is one gloss that I can wear completely by itself and the color is perfect. It also looks great on top of my normal every day lipsticks. The only thing I can think to improve this would be to have it in a lipstick tube but I don't mind using a lipstick brush. This is a gloss and color that I will have with me everywhere.
After years and years of searching for my perfect "your lips but better" lipstick color I have finally found it with Amphigory's lipstick "Sigh". The web site describes it as a sheer matte pink/brown meant to flatter pale lips (like mine). That describes this color to perfection. My only wish is that it had a little more staying power but you can't have everything ....
Benefit makes really great lipsticks! I used to look at them in their catalog and when I would order the color was never as pictured. Now that I have Sephora I am in heaven. My favorite is Um Um ...Uh (stupid name) a wonderful your lips but better pinkish-brown. I also like mocha frosting -it looks like the same color only with the tiniest bit of shimmer.
These are great lipsticks! I have them in Cognac and Pink Smoke. The cognac is a sheer wine color that fades to a just bitten raspberry blush on the lips. Pink smoke is my favorite every day your lips but better color - pinkish-brown but heavier on the pink. I am going back to get more of these great lipsticks!
I love Jane Iredale cosmetics. I bought this blush color in barely rose. It only takes the tiniest bit on my blush brush to given a translucent rose to my cheeks. It looks amazingly natural and lasts all day. This blush was expensive ($22) but since it takes so little it will last a very long time. This product is a total winner!
I have bought eye pencils from almost every Cosmetic company out there. I keep coming back to Rimmel's soft kohl eye pencil in Caramel. It is so inexpensive but it's quality is the best! The color is a taupe brown and so versatile. I use it to fill in my eyebrows as well as smudge under my eye. I hate pencils that won't smudge. This one is soft but wears just as well if not longer than the much more expensive brands. For the price and quality it can't be beat.
Who's the Fairest just started carrying Jane Iredale cosmetics. I love the way Fig is able to describe the colors of all the cosmetics she sells. I bought this lipshere in Diana. It is a very pretty sheer plum with a bit of brown and pink. It goes on so silky and feel wonderful. I love this color and am on my way back to Who's the Fairest to get another color. This time I am going to go for Rose.
Blush -Delux Beauty - Delux Flush Stick [DISCONTINUED]

I bought this stick blush in berry and it provides the most natural looking cheek color I have ever seen. This is an amazing product! It's easy to control, lasts well and I love the way the color looks like it came from within. My new holy grail of blushes. I can't wait to try some of the other colors. Expensive but worth it.
