Ugh, this just looks nasty on my unpigmented lips. It just shows up as garish gold shimmer! I can't even wear it on top of a lipstick, as it just shows up as bright gold shimmer that way, too. I look diseased when I wear it. I gave it an extra point for the texture and lasting power found in all Glossimers.
This shadow is amazing on tan skintones, though it looks a little orange and scary in the pot. I love it with Oasis. However, my favorite use for this shadow is as a bronzer/blush, hehe. It gives a subtle glow that I just love.
Love this pale shimmery gold shadow. I love it as a wash or paired with a shimmery green or bronze shadow. Just makes the eyes POP beautifully, and really enhances my skintone.
Pretty in the pot, but kind of a hard color to work with, especially on my skintone. It makes me look dead if I don't apply it right. However, when paired with the right shadow (shimmery light pinks work best with this for me), it can look pretty good.
My favorite Lip Polish -- a beautiful shimmery frosty pink shade with some pink glitter -- reminds me a bit of my Chanel Blizzard Glossimer. I wish it had better packaging (bottle is prone to leakage) but I'll deal because the shade is awesome.
I really love the thick texture and the minty smell/taste. The shades are awesome, too. However, I have great ISSUES with the packaging -- first of all, you get a teeeeeny amount of product for the price. And second, this little bottle OOZES soooo bad, ughhhh, it has oozed all over my makeup case.
I'd give this 3.5 lippies if I could. It's a gorgeous bronzey-rose color in the tube, reminiscent of Stila Luce, but sheerer. However, the color was nice but not WOW on my lips, and despite the name, this product dried my lips out a bit.

I found a GREAT color match (N3) -- it blends right in! It goes on really easily and dries to a somewhat powdery finish. I really love the apothecary-ish bottle, too. :) HOWEVER. This made me greasy like no other (even with loose powder) like an hour after application. I'm talking grease that even Dawn dishwashing soap would have trouble getting out. Plus, I suspect it *might* be breaking me out, but I'm not sure. :( Too bad, cuz the color match was REALLY good for me.
I found a good color match, but this broke me out like no other.
Gorgeous summery salmon pink. I think it has the tendency to wash some people out if worn alone, but hey, it looks grrr-eat on me so I ain't complaining. :) As with all Glossimers, great texture and lasting power, but a bit pricey.
Great texture and consistency, but a little too teenybopper/bubblegummy pink on my complexion (light with olive-ish undertones).
This is one of my HG/when-in-doubt lipglosses. Absolutely love the color; it's truly universal, IMHO. ADORE, ADORE, ADORE!! A little pricey, but worth EVERY penny.
I love this powder. It gives a lovely finish, and keeps me oil-free almost all day, and makes my skin look flawless. A staple item for me.

Doesn't have a good shade selection, hard to blend. Worst of all, when used under my eyes it made me look like I have fine lines! I freakin' just turned 20, WTF! I have never, ever had this problem before. Usually I get people saying I look 12, but this concealer made me look like a grandma. I guess it might come in handy if you're underage trying to look old to buy alcohol or something.
This is my favorite mascara that I have tried to date. I don't really use the primer side anymore, because I'm more prone to clumping/spiderlashes that way. But the black side alone gives me thick, dramatic, falsie-looking lashes!
