This has taken over as my favorite NARS Lacquer. It bumped Chelsea Girls off the top of the list. Galactica is a beautiful shimmery pearl shade. It has such a great sheen! I have pigmented lips and I love frosty light shades on them from time to time. When I want that look I always go for Galactica. I love the gel-like texture too. It is so much different than the other lacquers with their sticky textures. I have went through about 3 pots of this so far. Will rebuy!
Eh...not so impressed with this NARS Lacquer. I love Chelsea Girls and Caraibe looked similar on the Beauty.com site, so I gave it a shot. It is basically clear on me. It does give the slightest shimmer, but nothing special...and certainly not great enough to constitute spending $22 on this again.
Lip Gloss -Delux Beauty - Marshall Lip Gloss [DISCONTINUED]

Lovely color, but I have to apply several coats before I get any color payoff. However, when I do get enough Marshall applied it is so pretty. I love the shimmer to this gloss. Delux glosses are not sticky which is great. Most people are put off by the smell, but I have gotten used to it. Also the tubes are small, but honestly there is as much product in a Delux gloss as there is in a MAC Lipglass. I like the small tubes...they are cute and fit easily into a pocket.
Happy Light is my all time favorite foundation. I have been using it for about a year and I am still just so pleased with it. It isn't too expensive for a foundation which is great. The coverage is awesome...not too heavy and not too light. I do have to use an extra concealer under my eyes though, to cover up my dark circles. Beige Clair is the perfect color for my skin too.

I miss this gloss. I used to wear it all the time, but it is impossible to find now. I managed to score a tube off Ebay a while back that was brand new, which was pretty exciting. This is a warm peachy shade with a goldish shimmer to it. Lovely. I love Bourjois glosses. They are not sticky at all. I love the scent of them too...though some people might not enjoy it.
I really like this lip balm. It is very gentle and good for my sensitive skin. I think it is pretty expensive for a tube of lip balm though. However, it is very hard to find something like it for less. Kiehls Baby Lip Balm has a very smooth texture, no scent and comes in a no-nonsense package (like all Kiehls). I would rebuy it, though I am still on the hunt for something similar, but cheaper.
This stuff is fab. I have been using Bag Balm for about 10 years for my chapped lips and dry skin. It's dirt cheap and a tin lasts a long time. It doesn't smell too great, but I have gotten used to it. I wish they would make a smaller, more travel-friendly tin of this because the bulky square container is just too big to tote around.
Lip Gloss -Delux Beauty - Odin Lipgloss [DISCONTINUED]

Odin is one of my favorite Delux glosses! It is a gorgeous grapey mauve shade with a cream finish. I have went through several tubes of this in the past few years. It is one of the only glosses I have used up! The texture of Delux glosses is just fantastic. They are so smooth on. Some people don't like the smell, but I don't mind it. It is sort of plasticy, but not unbearable at all. I have several Delux glosses and have been stockpiling because of rumors that they are going out of business.

After reading the reviews on here, I was afraid this would be too bright on pale, pasty me. It barely shows up. I had to apply a few coats to get any color at all. It is really pretty though. It is a gorgeous peachy shade with a cream finish. I love the texture of Delux glosses. They are so smooth and velvety on. I am bummed out, because there are rumors that Delux Beauty is going out of business!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Concealers -Delux Beauty - Concealer in Snowy [DISCONTINUED]

This is hands down the best undereye concealer I have used. It perfectly covers up the darkness under my eyes, which is a hard thing to do! I absolutely hate the packaging though! It is very small (which is only nice for portability) so it is difficult to put my finger into. Also, I just found out that Delux Beauty stuff is being discontinued! So, I am super bummed about it. My quest for great concealer continues...
