I hate to bring down the rating, but even if I loved the colors, texture, feel etc, of this lippie, I couldn't wear it. I can't get past the smell. The smell doesn't fade either. Big fail.
I have several shades of Rimmel l/s. I really like all of them. They are smooth, well pigmented, and don't taste or smell bad (some will debate this, though). I don't really like the packaging...pretty cheapy cheap, but so is the price! :) Definitely a repurchase!
Great pencil! It sharpens really well, unlike a lot of expensive liners, and the color is gorgeous with my red hair and blue eyes. The staying power is great and it blends really, really well. I'll be trying more shades in this line. :)
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - Underground 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil

At first, I was in love. Until I had to sharpen it. It's so soft, the tip breaks off wasting a lot of product, which is very expensive, also. If not for this issue, I would repurchase, but it's not worth it when 1/3 of your pencil ends up in the trash:(
I will rave about this product til the end of time. I LOVE it!!! I always come back to this after trying other products. I love the fact that it takes off every trace of my eye makeup with minimal effort. It doesn't strip my skin at all. It's very gentle. I use this along with a 10% AHA cream and don't feel a bit of discomfort while cleanising and it doesn't sting the eyes. I don't know why I ever strayed.
EDIT*** My skin is just too dry for this. I got flaky patches on my cheeks and around my nose. I think it would work okay for someone with oilier skin. AHA 10% is a much better alternative.
I really like this. I was a little surprised when I saw this get a less-than-stellar review. It does what it says. It lengthens as well as my beloved Lancome Definicils Pro. It doesn't add much volume, but it doesn't claim to. It doesn't flake or smear under my eyes, which is a huge deal with me, as I'm a redhead and almost everything seems to smear. I took off one lippie because of the very odd smell. It fades when the mascara dries, but it's pretty overpowering. Not enough to make me stop using, though. Packaging is very clever...love it! I'd recommend it for someone who wants to add length, not volume, to their lashes. Would definitely purchase again!
Gorgeous color. It's a warm, golden orangey-red. It's very wearable in any situation. Would definitely repurchase!
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Super Lustrous - Pink Whisper 130 (LE)

I actually like this a lot. I'm a NC/NW20 with red hair, blue eyes, and a few light colored freckles on my face. I have naturally pigmented lips, so this doesn't wash me out. It lightens my lips up just enough to give me a "naked" mouth. It doesn't appear frosty on me, even in sunlight. I like the formula, too. Not too sticky, but lasts a good while.
I took off one lippie because Revlon's other matte red, In The Red, suits me a little better. This is a beautiful red that I think just about anyone can wear. I don't normally wear dark or bright lippies, but this one, along with In The Red, works well. This is a little brighter than In The Red. Overall, this is a really great purchase!
This is the perfect shade of red for me. It's a little darker than Revlon Matte Really Red, which I also purchased. In The Red is a classic, subdued red that doesn't scream at you when you look in the mirror. I apply this lightly over lip balm and it gives my lips a very nice stain that will work with almost any makeup look. You can go glam and apply it on bare lips as well. I'm a pale redhead and can wear this well.
This is a beautiful color! This really gave my blue eyes some oomph. The formula is silky and is super blendable. I wear this as a crease color with BE Vanilla Sugar on the lid. It looks smokey, but not overly dramatic. Really pretty when used lightly as a wash, too! Love it.
Great color and formula. Excellent as a wash on my fair skin. Love it!
Blush -Bare Escentuals - Glee/ all over face color

Even though I'm no longer a fan of Bare Minerals foundation, I love this. I use this as a blush, not an all over face color. It's not too dark and gives me a rosy, healthy glow. It can be applied over powder or liquid makeup and lasts a long time. It's not sparkly, glittery or shimmery, which is good for certain looks. This is a great find!
This is my HG bronzer. I'm a redhead (NC/NW20) and this gives me a very healthy glow. It isn't shimmery like a lot of bronzers. You only need a TINY amount to get a very natural, healthy glow. I sweep this on the bridge of my nose, my forehead and chin. This is also great as an eyeshadow, when applied lightly. It gives a gorgeous glow to your eyelids. LOVE THIS!!!
