OMG this stuff is amazing! I can't believe how cool it looks on my nails, an amazing foil of multi-coloured glitter in amazing jewel colours - green, purple, gold, silver etc. It takes quite a few coats (generally four or five) to achieve total opacity, but it's so worth it and it dries unbelievably quickly. It's also easy to remove using the tinfoil method (which I highly recommend - Google it if you find it difficult to remove glitter polishes). Too bad it's limited edition, it took me so long to get a bottle, but I would definitely repurchase if I could find another bottle, its definitely backup worthy.
Brows -Unlisted Brand - Billion Dollar Brows Brow Powder - Taupe
xxanaisxx 6/11/2010 5:01:00 AM
I bought this from the salon I got to to have my brows shaped - they use this on me every time I go and I love the way it makes my brows look. I bought this with the matching brush, and it's honestly amazing stuff - expensive for sure, but so worth it - it makes my brows look so great, and this powder will last forever. I'm sure I'll never run out, but would definitely repurchase if I did.
I bought this thinking it was an extremely deep grey/black with silver glitter/shimmer, but it's more a gunmetal with extremely subtle shimmer - not what I was hoping for (and worse, it was on sale so I bought another bottle as well as a backup!). Gorgeous polish, flawless application and quick drying time, but just not for me. Would not repurchase.
I picked this up for half price on sale, and am so stoked with it. It's a gorgeous rich red - initially I thought it was a perfect true red, but it is actually slighter darker. I love it, and receive compliments every time I wear it, bonus! Would definitely repurchase.
Gorgeous scent. As other reviewers have comment, it can easily be worn all year round. The only downside is it's very expensive (among the most expensive I've seen), and I've never seen it on sale, but would repurchase.
I know it's a petrol product and therefore incredibly bad to use on your skin, but it's so cheap, has a huge number of uses and works so well! Best uses for me include lip balm and on cracked heels. Will definitely repurchase.
Great concept (and it feels great to the touch!), but awful product - looks incredibly unnatural on, in both texture and colour. Will not repurchase.
This stuff is pure evil. After seeing the ads on TV for so long, and with the price dropping to a pretty cheap level, I cracked and bought the set. The stuff seemed to work well at first, with my surface acne slightly cleaing up, but it began to bleach my skin, bleached my clothes and any other fabric it came into contact with (and this was after washing my hands thoroughly after using it) and I developed deep cystic acne under my skin that took a long time to clear up after I stopped using it. I got a full refund from the company, as per their ads, but needless to say, I will not repurchase.
Eye Shadow -Smashbox - Eye Shadow Trio- Smashing Roll Film
xxanaisxx 6/11/2010 4:34:00 AM
I bought this in an amazing deal as part of Smashbox Who's Your Agent Spring Color Kit. I love this, it's a perfect eyeshadow trio - great colours, great to apply, long lasting. I doubt I'd ever run out, as the pan is a generous size, but I would definitely repurchase.
I bought this without reading the reviews here, dammit! It looked so amazing in bottle pics I'd seen, and I bought it online. As the other reviewers have said, it's EXTREMELY sheer, I managed to achieve opacity, but seriously, it took six coats. It ended up being a blue-ish gunmetal colour, with pieces of royal blue glitter scattered throughout, though not enough for my liking. I imagine it would look amazing layered over a darker blue nail polish, and I'm going to give that a try. Would not repurchase.
I bought this in an amazing deal as part of Smashbox Who's Your Agent Spring Color Kit. It applies as an opaque-ish, flesh pink gloss, and I really like the look it gives. The downside is that, as other reviewers have mentioned, it does tend to weirdly dry lips out. Can't imagine I would pay full price for this, but if I found it on sale I would repurchase.
Highlighters -Smashbox - Soft Lights - Smashing Highlight
xxanaisxx 6/11/2010 4:23:00 AM
I bought this in an amazing deal as part of Smashbox Who's Your Agent Spring Color Kit. It's a brilliant highlighter, it just appears a flat yellow in the pan but applied above blush really brightens up the face. I will never run out since it's only necessary to use use a small amount and the pan is enormous, but would repurchase.
I love the scent of this shower gel, but I think its one that you either love or hate, since it's quite unique, pretty smoky. I personally love it, and can imagine it being a very unisex scent - my boyfriend loves it. Unfortunately it doesn't lather well - the formula is quite thin and it generally takes quite a lot of it to create a decent lather, which given it's expensive anyway, like most of Lush's products, is not a good thing. But it does create a great bubblebath, and the scent is incredibly long lasting, both on the skin and in the bathroom. Would repurchase.
I've only used this as a shower gel, and it smells delicious - sweet and creamy, vanilla and cinnamon, so comforting, especially during winter. Its texture is thick and rich, and a little goes a long well - it lathers really well. Unfortunately the smell doesn't last, on my skin or in the shower, like other shower gels. But it does smell amazing when I'm using it in the shower, and the bottles last a long time, since you don't need to use very much - a good thing, since IMO it's pretty expensive. But I love it, and will repurchase.
Fragrances -Lolita Lempicka - Si Lolita de Lolita Lempicka
xxanaisxx 6/11/2010 3:59:00 AM
I picked this up on special online, I bought it based on the description and the fact I'm a huge fan on the other Lolita Lempicka fragrances. This one is definitely different from the others, but I like it. It's a rich, peppery, sweet scent, incredibly unique, which I like in a perfume. I found it quite heavy to wear when I first purchased it in late summer, but it's increasingly appealing as winter progresses here in the southern hemisphere, it's a very warming scent. The bottle is also very 'unique' - I thought it was tacky and ugly (and also slightly hilarious) when I first got it, but it's growing on me (especially its little polka dot neckscarf!). Would repurchase.
