I love this gloss. From the clear-ness to the slanted applicator to the smell. I love it all. I think it's great, and a must have in every makeup bag.
It's definitely a decent find. The color in the tube is a little intimidating because it looks so dark, but when you put it on, it's a nice wash of pinky sheer with shimmer to it. It's pretty nice. Staying power is EH, but it's lipgloss so expect to reapply throughout the day. It compliments my Asian skin very well. I recommend this gloss to those that can afford it (it is on the steeper end of prices)
Blush -Smashbox - Blush & Soft Lights Duo - Haute / Couture

Overall a decent blush/ highlighting set. Although I don't really like the fact that the diamond shaped highlighter takes up the entire pan. Sometimes it leaves you with a "too yellowy" look with not enough red pop in it. If that even makes any sense. It's decent, but then again it's Smashbox, and I have yet to find a terrible quality product from this company. The packaging is decent, although I'm not a huge fan of screwing the lid off. I would rather it be a flip top blush, but EH, what can you do. Definitely a decent product, but I don't think I will ever need to purchase a new one, I've had mine forever now, and there isn't even a dent in it.

Luckily this brush came with the kit. I would never buy this. This brush sucks.
Talk about shedding! This brush is the epitome of shedding brushes everywhere. It's an awful brush, that no one should EVER purchase.

It's alright. Nothing special, but when you look at it, it looks like some scary contraption right out of a horror movie.
I REALLY like this brush. It's so soft. Blends colors really nicely.
this $%^& sucks. period.
OH MY GOODNESS this stuff is terrible, the smell alone should be warning enough. *barf*
Eyeliner -Almay - intense i-color liquid liner- purple amethyst
ANSTAH 2/19/2009 12:42:00 AM
Terrible. The only reason why it gets a few lippies from me.. is because the color is gorgeous. However, it did flake on me after a while. And, I didn't really appreciate that, considering it took me forever to put it on. =[

Again, another great eyeliner from Almay. I LOVE this. I recommend this eyeliner to all my friends!
Eyeliner -Almay - Intense i-Color Bring Out the Brown in Purple Amethyst

this sucked. I was expecting staying power similar to their other eyeliners, but this one was so disappointing. the color is great, the staying power is absolutely terrible. I had to keep reapplying every hour.
I LOVE this eyeliner. Stays on ALL day. Can't ask for a better eyeliner at this price.
UGH. I really really really dislike this lotion. It gives my face such a strange texture. It makes it feel stiff, filmy, and gross. I will continue to use up the bottle and be glad that it's gone!

I've bought stuff from cherry culture twice, so i have two of these. I have to say i love throwing it in my backpack and having lipgloss to use at school that i won't worry about losing and what not. it's a cute simple gloss that makes you feel so young again!
