This shade is so stunning!! Its a darkly gold-bronze that I have been searching for and just found with Armani. The $32 price tag is hard to swallow, but you get 4 grams of products so it makes up for it,. I'm not a big fan of the formula, for the price I shouldn't have to use a primer. But I will keep repurchasing since I haven't been able to find a dupe in any other brands.
Lip Gloss -MAC - Naked Space lipglass - Neo Sci-Fi

This is a great lipglass. The shade should flatter many skintones and can work as a great nude for some. I only wear this when I am tan since I wear nudes only. I have also seen this pop up at CCOs, so check there first. If repromoted, I will repurchase.
I waited for this brush to go on sale since I couldn't justify a $50 price tag. This brush does do the job, but it doesn't work any better than a powder brush for applying a pigmented blush. I ended up losing this brush and I have to say to say that I don't miss this brush. When using pigmented blushes like Illamasqua, MUFE, or Tarte, I just use the Trish McEvoy 2B Sheer Blush Brush or the 56 Sephora Brush. I took off one lippie since the wiring does come off after a period of time. Another lippie since the shape of the britsles changes, unlike other brushes I own.
Lips -Yves Saint Laurent - Rouge Pur Couture #19 Beige Aquarelle

This was my first YSL lip product and I was very eager to try it out. The texture is great and long lasting. It really is a hybrid of a stain and gloss. 19 is a mid tone pink on my lips and not a shade that I wear. My complaint to YSL is the lack of colors. I usually wear colors in the same family of MAC Myth, NARS Tashkent, and Kat Von D Agatha
Lip Gloss -Milani - Crystal Gloss for Lips in Whisper
clarissa90 3/19/2012 5:12:00 PM
This is good gloss for a drugstore brand. Its a little bit thick so it has more lasting power than the average drugstore gloss. It also smells really good, so that's a plus. My main gripe is that it is totally clear on my lips, no pigment at all. I will not repurchase.
Fragrances -Elizabeth Arden - Midnight Fantasy Britney Spears

This perfume used to be HG, but my body chemistry has changed and it just smells to chemically. So I have moved on to Trish McEvoy #9 and Philosophy Falling in Love. If you like the berry and vanilla smell and this didn't work out for you, give those a try. I will no longer repurchase.
Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Hask Henna n' Placenta Conditioning Treatment
clarissa90 3/19/2012 4:37:00 PM
The Olive Oil and Placenta really helped my hair out, so I decided to give this a try. It did nothing for my hair, even after multiple uses. I will stick to the olive oil and placenta from now on.
This smells like strawberries with a hint of vanilla. That's it. I can probably find something similar at Bath & Body Works. I will not repurchase
I got this as a sample from Ulta. Thanks Ulta!! I liked this scent intiallly, but after the drydown it turned into an unbearable floral. Alas, florals are just not for me. On to the next perfume.
I'm shocked that the lustre finish has such high ratings. This has no staying power at all. It doesn't even last through my 1 hour classes. They also don't stay put on lips, they slip and slide. Imagine talking to someone with lipstick doing that. It's a shame though since MAC releases pretty colors that are lustres. I will just stick with satin finishes.
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Boyfriend - Kate Walsh - Billionaire Boyfriend

I got this as a sample from Sephora. On me it smells very masculine. Maybe that's why it has Boyfriend in the name. I will not purchase.
Blush -Tarte - Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Dollface
clarissa90 2/29/2012 8:40:00 AM
I really had high hopes for this blush, but it just didn't work out. The pros are that it didn't break me out and it had good lasting power. Dollface is not as pigmented as the other amazonian clay blushes since I really had to pack this on just to get it to show up. Once I would finally have it on, it turned into a peachy mess on me. I returned this.
I used to love these lashes, but Ardell recently changed the shape completley!! They used to look sexy and natural, but the new ones make me look like a drag queen. I will no longer repurchase.
I agree with the general consensus on this perfume. Nothing special or worth adding to your collection. You could probably find something similar at Bath & Body Works. I will not repurchase.
I was ecstatic to finally find this at Walgreens after hearing all the hype about the Color Tatoos. So once I got home, I put this on my eyes with my fingers and it came off as silver. So then I appled it with a brush, it still came out silvery. Not bronze at all. I had high hopes for this shadow, but it looks like I'll be sticking with department store shadows.
