For the price this lip gloss is fantastic. I love the taste, the price, AND the color. It gives your lips a nice warm almost beigey-pink color. It isn't sticky, the taste isn't overwhelming, and you get lot's in your tube. This stays with me all the time. I love it.
While the actual lipstick looks very pink, when applied the pink is quite subtle. It applies so smoothly, since it's a lustre, and it has just the right amount of shine. As others have said, the lasting power isn't fantastic...but the color is so great I don't mind reapplying it.
This is a very pretty neutral color. I use it almost everyday as a highlighter, or all over my eye with a darker color in the crease. It's very shimmery, and overall extremely pretty. Why wouldn't I buy it again? This is mainly because it is a neutral color and I am sure there is a cheaper alternative.
As everyone had said, the Heatherette packaging is adorable. The ultimate girly packaging, and I have to admit that I love it too. Now, maybe this beauty powder would work with someone with darker skin tone. I am a red head with fair skin and freckles, and I find it doesn't give me the effect I was hoping for. That also may have to do with the fact that it is matte, and I much prefer product with some shimmer.

The color is so cute; the packaging, even CUTER. Do I find it moisturizing? Absolutely not. I actually find it drying. I would actually choose the Lypyl on my parents dresser than this. If I pair it with my Rosebud Salve and use it only for color then it works. It is not a product I would buy again.
This was an impulse buy for me. I have been reading reviews and seeing that people with blue eyes have found it really works for them. Luckily for us hazel eyed ladies, it also works for us! The colors really are pretty, and I love the packaging. Now, I don't find the pigmentation that great, but with a base they do last. Would I buy this again? No. Why? Well, because there are two very similar eye shadow sets out there. (1) Maybelline New York Expertwear Eye Shadow in "Time for Wine" and (2) Almay's Intense I-Color Powder Shadow trio for Hazels.
I love this color! I find that it is darker in the package then it looks on my eye. I have red hair, hazel eyes, and a fair complexion so I find it works very well for me. Whereas Woodwinked is overwhelmingly dark, this is just right. It has just the right amount of shimmer in it. I find that if I pair it with a gold tinged base, it really looks great!
It's funny, I went to Mac and asked for an eyeshadow that would suit my skin tone. I have red hair, fairly fair skin tone, and lot's of freckles. This is the one he said would work for me. Honestly, I find it WAY to overwhelming. It's a lot darker then expected, and even when applied as lightly as possible it's too dark. I can see this working well for someone with an olive skin tone.

I really enjoy this trio. It's great for an everyday subtle look. I'm a teacher and it works perfectly for my job...not too dramatic! I tend to use only the two lighter colors; the lightest all over my lid, and then the next darker in my crease and outer corner. Some people say that it can apply a bit chalky without a base, but I actually prefer it without one. I found it a bit too frosty with a base. Even without a base I find that it doesn't crease on my eye. It has great lasting power and I really enjoy it.

I absolutely love this product. The coloring is beautiful, and when used as a highlighter it really makes my skin glow. If you are a red head and have a fair skin tone, it can really warm you up. (Especially if you are as pale as I am in the winter!) I find it is worth the price. A little goes a long way. The only thing that I find with this product is that there is a lot of fall out when I use my brush on it. Not fall out on my face, but fall out in the container. This is part of my daily makeup routine, and I LOVE it.
I absolutely LOVE this blush. The color is gorgeous, and as a red head I find it difficult to find a color that suites my fair skin tone. It has just the right amount of shimmer and looks great paired with my Mac MSF's. My only complaint is that it is small! I know a little goes a long way, but you should be getting what you pay for. Needless to say, I would buy this again for SURE. It is going to become a part of my daily makeup routine.
