It's the best! Won't use anything but. It is my base and top coat, and helps my nails get stronger. I just had gel nails taken off and this stuff is honestly like nail rehab. Works perfectly.
Have this lip plumper in Milan, and for a lip plumper, this is very hydrating! It will not make your lips go chapped, and gives your lips a gorgeous 'just kissed' glow. Gorgeous consistency.
This was my first 'high end' eyeliner that I bought when I was about 14. Eight years later, I still love it. It is the most perfect brow, has a super fine shimmer giving your eyes a little bit of sparkle. I won't use any other neutral tone eyeliner but this one, it's just perfect!
Bought this little guy at Shoppers. I really thought it would be a nice change from my Chanel Iconic mascara. Well, it wasn't. I usually apply about two coats of mascara and I'm going to say that it is almost impossible with this one. When I tried to apply a second coat, it felt like my eyelashes were coated in crazy glue and I was trying to brush them out. Ouch!!! One thing I will say that I did like was the brush. It is really nice and does tend to get all of your lashes. This mascara is semi-waterproof too, so I think the only time I will be using it is for when I go to the beach. I won't be re-purchasing.
Blush -Tarte - Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Dollface

Bright and fun! This blush is for a girl who loves to go out and have a good time. The bright pink gives your skin a happy glow, however I do recommend this color for more fair skin types. The Amazonian Clay will help you make this blush last - it is very concentrated! I bought mine over a year and a half ago and I can still see the pretty imprinted design on mine.
I used to think this was the most incredible bronzer known to man, however the packaging is absolutely terrible and you run out of it way too fast. With the slightest of a drop to this bronzer, it will shatter. For a $38 bronzer I would have expected a little more out of it, but I guess it is what it is. Pros: *Very natural looking *Gives you a healthy glow to your face year round *The quad color selection blends together great Cons: *Packaging sucks *You'll go through it in about 2-3 months Great bronzer for those who are very gentle to their makeup, but for a girl who travels, not so much.
Horay! I finally have eyebrows! As a natural blonde, my eyebrows are super light. This brow pencil changed my eyebrow life. It is a super slender pencil with a comb on the other end, and distributes the perfect amount of color without over-doing it. The colors are super natural.
It is unfortunate that so many people have had bad experiences with this primer, because this is the only smashbox primer that I have tried that I love! This stuff holds my foundation like glue and gives my skin a beautiful matte appearance which is exactly what I wanted. Benefits: *Matte *Not heavy. Put on after your moisturizer and you're set for the day *A little goes a long way! I only use about the size of my pinky finger nail (or less!) and that covers my entire face. *Not irriating. Melts into your skin like water Originally bought this primer with the Smashbox Halo foundation, not a good combo on my skin. Works great with my other foundations though and holds all day! I recommend this product for those who are looking to try a primer, who have combination skin and who want something ultra light.
This is my all-time favorite perfume. I have been wearing this perfume for over 7 years and I still don't get tired of it. It is a very powerful and sensual scent, and although it does have a matching perfumed body lotion available, I don't think layering is necessary for this perfume. I use it all year round, however I do believe that because it is such a powerful smell it is best suited for fall and winter. It is a very classic perfume and hope it is around for a long time.
Got this little number for Christmas last year. Although it is sheer, the scent itself is powerful enough to last all day. It is light, girly, and fresh. Perfect for peppy spring and last summer days.
Bought this perfume for a really great deal at Winners last year (and I know the regular price is quite high). I wasn't too sure how it would smell, but I have to say that now it is definitely one of my favorite perfumes. It is so fresh and girly, it is definitely my favorite spring and summer perfume. Best of all, it is the only perfume that I wear that my boyfriend seems to enjoy. Bonus!
This brush will change your life, I swear. Use it with every powder, every foundation, just everything. Makes your powders look absolutely flawless on your skin. I've had mine for about three years, it still looks and works the exact same as when I first bought it. Washes beautifully, feels wonderful, and I can honestly say that I won't buy it again because I most likely won't need to! Best brush in the history of the world.
Update: Basically what it came down to is that the colour oxidizes badly. Like... really bad. I would only apply it to the areas that I really needed it and after a long day, it looked like I had perfectly painted circles on my face. If you're going to wear this foundation, you really need to wear it. Not good for oily skin types, I had heavy, cyst-like breakouts after a month of use. If you are completely, 100% sold on buying this foundation, it is important to check a few things before spending the money: *Not meant for oily skin types, better suited for dry *Starts off matte, but at the end of the day it looks like you have smothered yourself in oil. it basically separates itself from the skin *Be 100% certain on the colour. It oxidizes quite yellow.
Beautiful mascara. It has been a favorite of mine for years, and I do believe that it is worth the investment. The brush itself separates, lengthens, volumizes and curls each lash and gives a very dramatic effect. It is a tough number to remove, so I do recommend a good makeup remover with it. Does not smudge or create 'rail road tracks' under your eyes. Lovely!
Moisturizers -Origins - Starting Over (with Mimosa)

What attracted me the most about this product was the smell. It was like smelling morning sunshine in a jar. So bright, citrus-y and lemongrass like, I couldn't wait to try it on my skin. The texture of this little number is delightful. It really feels like a nice moisturizer when I put it on my face. I wasn't looking for an anti-aging cream, however this product is oil free and has many benefits to it as well. Over time I could see that my skin was becoming more hydrated and happy, however due to the occasional breakout I had to alternate between a few other moisturizers. Great for all times of the year, and I do believe that I would buy this product again.
