I love this lipstick from Maybelline! It's a shimmer rosy tone everyday lipstick that I know I can get my hands on for everyday look. It's nothing high maintenance and perfect for quick color application in the morning or after lunch. It enhances my complexion and really lasts long. I have no complaint about it!
Lip Gloss -MAC - Strange Potion (Venomous Villains)

I love this lip gloss! It looks orangy in the tube but goes on sheer on my lips. I can wear it on my bare lips or layer on top of other similar tones of lipsticks. Very nice color enhancing gloss!
Lipstick -MAC - Innocence, Beware! (Venomous Villains)

Unfortunately this one doesn't do it for me. It looks VERY nude on me, almost like a lip concealer. I'm not into nude look so maybe I'm not used to the look. But it's a great lipstick nonetheless and I believe a lot of gals will go crazy for it.
Lip Gloss -MAC - MAC Wicked Ways -(Venomous-Villains)

Every girl should keep a true red lip gloss in her purse and this one really pulled it off. I paired it with Heartless lipstick and it couldn't get any more chic! It's a cherry red lip gloss with a tiny sparkles in it. It enhanced the lipstick and last all day long. The color shows up very intense and bold in the tube, but once you put it on the color is softened. Highly recommended!
This lipstick rocks! At first it didn't catch my eyes when the collection just came out, as it looks really red for yellow tone like me. However when I went to the store and tried it oh my gosh it totally transformed me! I'm not a red lip person but once in a while I do want to go bold so I do have a few red lipsticks. Heartless is a cherry red that will flatter most skin tones I believe. It shows up very intense but once I blended in it looks almost like a red stain on my lips. The trick is to use a light hand when applying it and layering it on to the intensity you'd like. I finished it with the Wicked Ways lip gloss (the matching lip gloss from the collection) and I look totally chic! It's great for a night out or some formal dinner party. Highly recommend this red lipstick if you can still get your hands on it!
I love this new lip color from Mac. It's a cream lipstick that claims for long lasting power. I bought the color Till Tomorrow off the Mac website without any color matching. Today I put it on and it looks very natural and sophisticated. It's a mauvy pink with a muted tone, perfect for everyday office setting and all year round. The lasting power is pretty good too. I didn't feel it overly drying as the previous reviewer mentioned. I love how the color shows up on me, very elegant and feminine. I would wear this color at a business setting, like meeting with a customer so I don't have to worry about reapplying it. Highly recommended!
Love love love this moisturizer from Kimberly Sayer! I bought the light version a while back but it was too light for my 30+ skin, so I gave it to my husband and he's diligently using it. I then have been eyeing the cream version and finally got it from a beauty website with great discount. I totally love it! Even though it's a cream version it's not greasy at all. It takes a bit of massaging onto my skin in the morning to let the cream sink in but after that my face just glows! I'm in Southern California so it's imperative to wear sunblock everyday. I always use moisturizer with SPF so I don't have to pile on loads of products in the morning. The moisturizer gives me enough hydration for the day and UV protection, which I really couldn't ask for more! And the price is so affordable. The best about it is the all natural ingredients so I know I'm putting something good on my face. Highly recommended!
This is a very nice moisturizer for oily/combo skin, or for summer days. It's not a miracle cream if you ask me, but it does a good job in moisturizing my face. I love its refreshing texture and the soothing scent, and it does not dry out my face even though it is in gel. I didn't see any major improvement for my skin texture, but I do enjoy using it. The price is outrageous but it's from La Mer so what do you expect? I'll probably repurchase from some reliable ebay sellers as the full size jar is simply too expensive.
I have no complain about this eye palette from Stila. Some people hate the packaging and all that, but priced at $10 I wouldn't have complained about it. Besides the quality of the eyeshadows are simply impressive! I like Kitten the best, being Stila's best selling eye color it's no brainer there. I use it as a base color or simply a highlighter for my eye lids. It looks pretty good by itself without topping any other colors. I tried to top it with the other color comes with the palette, Lame, and it simply looks amazing on me. Lame is a beautiful golden yellow color that brightens up my eyes entirely. I was hesitant to put gold or yellow color on my already yellow Asian skin, but the effect just blown me away! What's best about it is the colors stay put ALL DAY LONG! I had them about 7:30 in the morning and by the time I got off work around 6pm they were still there! I haven't tried Chloe yet, as the bronze color turns me off usually. But who knows, maybe it'll look equally flattering on me! Get this palette while it still lasts (as it's limited edition) and who wouldn't love 3 generous sizes of eye shadows for only 10 bucks?
Blush -Flirt - Peek-A-Blush Sheer Powder Cheek Color in 21 Pink Tutu
ginny133 7/18/2010 8:55:00 PM
Loved this blush! I picked it out of the many blushes from Flirt because it looks very similar to Nars Orgasm, but about half of the price. It is on the orangy side with shimmer, creating this beautiful summer look suitable for day at a beach or a night out. The best part is it stays put the whole day! Try this blush and you'll love it!
Blush -Flirt - Peek-a-Blush sheer powder cheek color in Sweet Surrender

I returned this blush to the store after having one try. Don't get me the wrong, the color is gorgeous, but too similar with Pink Tutu from Flirt as well. It's too pigmented and a little dusting makes me look like a clown. Not subtle enough for me. If I want to create a more dramatic look I'll reach for Pink Tutu, which is very similar to Nars Orgasm.
Lipstick -Flirt - Chickstick Smooth & Shiny Lipcolor in Obsess
ginny133 7/18/2010 1:03:00 AM
Unfortunately this one doesn't work out for me. I tried it on the back of my hand at the store totally falling for it, but when I actually put it on me it washed me out, like I am sick of something. I guess it's because of the pink sparkle that doesn't go well with my Asian skin tone. I also bought Honey and it worked out perfectly, even though it's even lighter. I didn't want to trash it with one lippie as even though it didn't look great on me doesn't mean it's a bad product, or won't look good on others. In fact Flirt's got great quality lipsticks and other products that I'd definitely recommend to others!
Lipstick -Flirt - High Wattage Intense & Creamy Lipcolor in Indulge
ginny133 7/18/2010 12:44:00 AM
I have been so obsessed with Flirt cosmetics lately ever since I found it at Kohls. Their products come in surprisingly good quality that's comparable to department store brands. They come with great color selection as well, especially eye shadows and lipsticks. I tried this color "Indulge" at store tonight and loved it so much, but unfortunately it's out of stock. It's a creamy rosy/beige color that's kind of my HG color. Flirt's lipsticks are with high quality, creamy, moist, and highly pigmented. The package is crap, bulky and plastic. But I guess I can compensate that with the high quality content in the tube. So far I've bought 3 lip colors (Honey, Delight, and Delicioso), 3 eyeshadows, and 3 cheek colors and they all prove high quality products to me. Pricing is on the lower ends, about $12 to $14. If you have a Kohls coupon it's really great deal to stock these babies!
Lipstick -MAC - Blow Dry (Blonde Brunette Redhead)
ginny133 7/16/2010 7:06:00 PM
I bought this at the outlet counter for only $10 bucks. It's a perfect pink color for summer. Even though it's luster I feel it moisturizes pretty well. The pink turns out very natural on my lip. I took out one lippie as it does make your lip lines look more distinct for some reason. But all in all I have no complaint for this lipstick and will be wearing through out the summer!
Lipstick -Flirt - Chickstick Smooth and Shiny Lipcolor in Honey
ginny133 7/16/2010 6:50:00 PM
Indeed a very nice nude color. I bought it just for the rave review here. I went to Kohls and checked it out, and it looked quite nice on the back of my hand. Put it on after lunch and it showed up a very natural nude beige. The texture is very creamy, perfect for a natural earthy tone look. However, I still feel you need some make up to be able to wear this color, as it tends to wash you out and looks like you are sick or something. It'll go great with a very dramatic eye make up if you ask me. I'll probably use it as a daily lip conditioner since it's very moist.
