This gives me a gorgeous, peach glow. The packaging is large and awkward, but it comes with a mirror and the brush is wide enough for proper application (too many blushes come with small, wimpy brushes, but this brush is great).
A shimmery, pink, rose blush that gives a natural flush. L'oreal Blush Delice must be the best drugstore blush out there. I have never raved about one line of blush this much.
I hesitated buying this because I thought it would look too dark, but it's a gorgeous, sheer, peach-bronze. It reminds me of Caboodles Tahiti Bronzer, except it has nicer packaging (comes with a mirror and a nifty brush). And I do use this as bronzer, brushing it on my cheeks, nose, forehead, and chin. I can see myself repurchasing this.
Lip Gloss -Bonne Bell - Skittles Lip Balm in Strawberry

They should call this tinted lip balm, because it gives my lips a soft, juicy, pink color. I have the wild cherry, which is apricot. I hope they come out with more flavors, because my Walgreens only has these two.

This balm is tinted and gives my lips an orange-apricot tinge. I am loving it. It also leaves my lips soft and conditioned.
Conditioner -L'Oreal - Feria Color Moisturizing Treatment.

This is the best conditioner I have ever used. I thought to myself that the best conditioner are the small packets that come with hair dye. I mentioned this on the hair board and someone directed me to Feria Conditioner at Sally's. This product leaves my hair soft and silky; it detangles my hair instantly.
I was disappointed in this. I thought this would be a beige-nude color, but it's clear. It has no color whatsoever, so I'm going to use this on top of lipstick.

This product doesn't stand out. I have dry, frizz-prone hair, so when I use something great I say to myself, "Wow, I must buy this again." I did not have any reaction to this. It did nothing for my hair.
Lipstick -Neutrogena - Lip Boost Intense Moisture Lipstick

I don't find anything special about this lipstick. Sunlit Crystal looked boring and muddy on me; a brownish color that didn't suit me at all. Mango Sorbet is a bright orange that looks great only if I load clear gloss on top of it. I wouldn't buy this line again, even if it's on sale. There are better drugstore lipsticks out there, like Jane and Revlon.
Eye Shadow -L'Oreal - On the Loose Shimmering Powder in Hyperspace

I was afraid that this would wash me out, because it looks similar to Jane's Goldilooks, which didn't look great on me. This is gold with a greenish undertone. It doesn't wash me out at all.
There are many ways to wear this shadow. Sometimes I put the darker color, which looks metallic, brown-pewter, all over my lid and put the lighter color, a shimmery beige, in the middle to give myself a smoky eye. Or I put the light color all over my lid and gently put the dark color on the outer part of my lid, which is a better look, because it's good for a neutral, soft look. I don't find it very pigmented, because I need to swipe it with a brush many times to get any color, so I like the softer look that I described better.
Lip Treatments -Sally Hansen - 18 Hour Lip Treatment

I bought the sample packet in "raisin" and "nude." Raisin is a medium-toned berry color and nude is a light peach. They seem watery and don't last long. I would only buy this if it was a bogof sale.
This is a shimmery, opaque pink that's cool-toned, but doesn't wash out my warm skin. It is now my favorite Whipped Gloss.
These were limited edition a year ago, but I missed out on them. I saw them again at Walgreens and snatched one up because of the raves. It is a shimmery peach-pink color that's sticky and lasts for hours (unlike many drugstore glosses). The packaging is strange, because it has a wand, yet it's in a squeeze tube. I still would buy this over and over again.
Eastend Snob is a milky, shimmery, peach color that has quickly become one of my favorite glosses. It looks great when I'm wearing a shimmering or bronzed face.
