This works wonderfully for removing eyemakeup, but requires either a prewashing with a makeup remover or a postwashing with something stronger to thoroughly clean my face. Still, I always return to this when my skin is freaking out and nothing else will halt the problem. This is one of my "reset" products - something I'll use to return to the status quo.
With Opium, a little goes a long way is this is a very intense fragrance. It's intoxicating and when I wear it, I feel like I can draw anyone into my orbit. It gives me the aroma of an experienced and worldy person. It's strong and sophisticated and after a few hours of wear, it has a somewhat masculine quality to it. This is not the kind of fragrance that would smell good on a very soft and frilly girl. This is the perfect fragrance for a sexually assertive and incredibly intelligent woman.
This has a very distinct, spicy aroma that makes this one of those rare fragrances that is suitable for both work and play. It's fun and sophisticated and has a powerful quality to it. It's not overtly seductive, but it is sensual.
I've been wearing this for years. I'd consider its fragrance sparkling, classy, and relaxed. It's a very approachable scent. BTW - this is my HG perfume
I wear this to work because it smells clean. It's not overly girlie and it's not incredibly strong. It's light enough that I can spray it all over before getting dressed and not smell like I just went rolling in a flower garden.
As long as I have a makeup bag, this product will always be in it! This eyeliner does it all - smokey eyes, thick lines, thin lines...it's wonderful.
This is great for recreating the same type of color you'd get from being outside on a frosty night. I use this blush almost exclusively for creating that winter wind glow. Unfortunately, the staying power is only a few hours tops.
This is great to carry in my bag for a midday punch up for the cheeks. I prefer this product for a pickmeup or a base color. It's brilliant with Nars Orgasm layerd on top. I'll also use Peony all over my face when in a pinch. The consistency and color is great for imparting a nice glow to the cheeks and shadowing the eyes. I love the adorable compact and the mirror is a great size to see what I'm doing. I consider this an on-the-go product.
This is the best pinky-peach blush I've ever used. I have fair skin and love that it imparts a healthy glow to my cheeks. This is not the product to use if you want dramatic color or contouring. It just knocks the pale off my cheeks and puts some natural looking polish on my face. As long as I can, I'll keep a compact of this in my makeup bag.
The color is awful. You Rebel is the product that taught me never to buy foundation I've not used before off the internet. All the blending in the world can't make this look right on my skin tone. The fact that this stuff has a great texture and scent and feels good on the skin makes it even more tragic that the color is just so gross.
This is somewhere between a tinted moisturizer and a liquid foundation. It blends very well and has decent staying power. It's great during the summer and when the skin is clear but needs a little boost. That it has sunscreen and is oil free are two things that make this stuff great. This product needs to be washed off the face as any other foundation does though. I made this mistake a few times right after I started wearing it and my skin paid the price.

This was the first tinted moisturizer I ever used and it was a revelation. It provided moisture and a bit of coverage but it didn't aggrevate my (then) severe acne. This is a great product if you're on prescription acne medication because it gives your complexion a slight boost but doesn't accentuate the peeling that often occurs while on such medication. It's easy to use and blends quite well. When I'm in the makeup aisle and I see young girls (preteens and teenagers) trying to get something thick and opaque, I suggest they try this instead.
When I put this on, I look the same as before I applied mascara. This product does nothing for me.
I've used Illegal Lengths for almost a decade and still love it. I can layer on multiple coats for a dramatic look and still not get spidery or clumpy lashes. It's been harder to find the black/brown waterproof recently, so I'm sad about that. I've also found that with this product, if you put a slight bend with the brush, it's easier to apply.
I like that this mascara has staying power, but I don't have to scrub it out of my lashes at the end of the day. I do have to be a bit careful about vigorously rubbing my eyes throughout the day, but this stuff will stand up to perspiration and tears. The big brush is easy to hold and is great for quickly distributing the product through my lashes. It's a bit pricey but I'll pay for it because it's been a long time since I've found a mascara that looks and feels this good to use.
