I absolutely love this primer. It's the first one I've used that hasn't made me break out and it absorbs into the skin so quickly and doesn't feel sticky or nasty on my skin. I will absolutely be buying this one again!
The bottle is adorable, so I'll definitely be keeping it whenever the perfume runs out. It smells almost identical to a cologne I bought my dad a couple of Christmases ago, but there's something else in it that I can't put my finger on. It's a light scent and I love how the perfume doesn't feel heavy on my skin. This has just become my new summer scent.

Besides the price, I love everything about this lipstick. It makes my lips soft and shimmery. I bought it in Champagne Blush and it's the perfect shade for my very pale skin. The packaging is adorable also.
So I just got this in the mail today and eagerly tried it on. It was an awesome color that had the right amount of shimmer and didn't see any big chunks of glitter like everybody else is complaining about. I thought it was a great color.

I probably won't be buying this one again. I have super fair skin and even with a steady super light hand, it still makes my face look dirty.
There is no way in hell I would ever buy this mascara again. Or even accept it as a gift. The first time I used it the brush was all clumped up with product and it made my lashes look even stumpier than when I started. Stay away from this mascara at all costs.
I love this true blue shade. I had bought Light My Sapphire also and on my nails, that shade ended up looking like dirty denim. Yoga-ta is a Greek blue with not too much shimmer or glitter to make it unwearable. It's a fashion shade much better than black.
Polishes -Sephora - Sephora by OPI - How Cute Is That?

I bought this shade off line because I figured it would be a cute shade, some shimmer but not too baby girly. I was wrong. The shade is a very stark and VERY bright orange coral that just looked wrong.
I would have loves this product if it didn't feel so greasy on my face. I used it as an eye shade for a while but it just creased all over the place. It's been sitting in the bottom of my make up basket for a while now.
I bought this on a whim as I do most of my make up and could not have been more disappointed in it. The huge gold flecks make it look like 80's eyeshadow had been flicked all over my checks and it looked like it was stuck in my pores. I gave it away the same day I bought it.
This is my absolute favorite highlighter blush of all time anywhere. It's super lightweight but can still be used to set liquid foundation. I pair it up with Deep Throat and get SO many compliments on my make up during the day and night.
I got this as a free sample from Sephora and I thought that it would be awesome because I've always wanted to sample an at home peel before shelling out some big bucks for it. Whenever I put this on my face, it turns it BRIGHT red in a couple of minutes like I have a terrible sunburn. While it did go away a few hours later, and my skin did look a little brighter, I don't think it was worth it.
I really liked Twilight *the books, not the movies so far* so I figured "Why not? I'll give it a shot" So I put it on and it's a really pretty deep color. No shimmer but I'm really glad that it's not the sticky gloss that DuWop normally comes out with. The color lasted for a long time can is really pretty if you put a sheer gloss over it.
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Beyond Natural Cream Lipgloss, all colors [DISCONTINUED]

I bought this lip gloss on a whim while I was doing the grocery shopping today. I bought it in 120 Rosy, it matches the color of my lips almost perfectly but gives it a little volume and "umph" if you will. It is pretty thick when you first put it on, but the warmth of your lips slowly thins it out which I guess doesn't give it much staying power, but I prefer that than having my lips feel like they are glued together.
