This is a gorgeous intense emerald green with shimmer. Looks great on my brown eyes. The quality is superb and it's long lasting. I've found that the Wet N Wild single eyshadow in Envy is almost an exact dupe.
I apply this to my dry hair when I'm finished blow drying and straightening. It's nice at smoothing things out and getting rid of the poofiness. It also helps create some texture with my long layers. However, it hasn't helped much in the frizziness area, and I'd prefer a product that was better at keeping my hair frizz free. This product is really expensive, but you only need the smallest dab, otherwise your hair will look majorly greasy.
I LOVE this eye pencil! One side is a shimmery champagne/pink and the other side is golden. I use this all the time to brighten the inner corner of my eyes and use it to line my lower lash line to brighten my eye. I've used similar products like this before, but the best thing about this is that it LASTS all day. I also like that the pencil is thick rather than thin..makes is easier to apply and get my desired look.
This is a nice trio. It consists of a medium to light matte pink base color, very light pink matte highlight color, and a bronzey/purplish crease color. I find this to be flattering on my brown eyes and medium complexion. A good work look that I can do without too much thinking in the morning.

I was on the fence on whether to give this 3 or 4 lippies. I like the pencil itself, it's very creamy...applies easily with no tugging and lasts quite a while. The color is an interesting golden taupe with a bit of metallic sheen. Although the color is pretty, my problem with this is that I feel the color is just a tad too light to be used succesfully on me as a liner. As a shadow or base, this would be nice, but I wanted an eyeliner. I don't think I would rebuy this at full price.
This is great for a highlight without leaving any obvious shimmer or glitter on your face. It's a liquid with a nice light consistency that feels nice on my skin when I apply it. I've only used it as a highlighter, but I also think it would be great to mix with a matte foundation to add a little extra glow.

The taupe side is nice, but a little dark for me to be in love with it. I'm a bit disappointed in the teal side - looks super pretty in the pan but doesn't come across the same on my eye. Looks very dark and muted rather than the teaI it appears in the pan. Staying power is decent. I bought this a long time ago, but I no longer buy L'Oreal products because my understanding is that they do animal testing.

This is a light pink with a lot of shimmer. I think this looks really pretty on my brown eyes. Staying power isn't great without a primer. I bought this years ago, but I no longer buy L'Oreal products because my understanding is that they do animal testing.

Pretty decent. A nice wash for the eye in a very light champagne cream color. It's a little too on the yellowish side for me to really love. There is a good amount of shimmer. Staying power isn't great without a primer. I bought this years ago, but I no longer buy L'Oreal products because my understanding is that they do animal testing.

Reading through the reviews here, I guess I'm not the only one that had a strange reaction to this lotion. I don't have sensitive skin at all, but this lotion made my skin BURN so badly! It felt like heat was radiating through my skin - it was the oddest sensation ever. I have used tons of different lotions, including ones from BBW, and never experienced anything like this. Very strange, although it does make me feel better than I'm not the only one that had this reaction. In the trash it goes.
I always have at least one of these around. They smell great, feel great on my lips, are super moisturizing and leave a nice shine. My favorite is bubble gum.

My first and only Revlon eyeshadow, and I was quite disappointed. The colors looks pretty in the package, but they are so unpigmented it's ridiculous. To get any type of color payoff you have to continously apply with a sponge applicator, and even then the color is just not there.
I found this blush to be overhyped. I got it in the Laguna/Orgasm duo, and while I love Laguna, I'm just not that impressed with Orgasm. I don't know if I got a bad batch, but the blush seems so hard and difficult to get any product on my brush. Compared to some of my other blushes that are super soft and velvety, this stuff really sucks in comparison. I feel like I basically have to scratch it out of the container. The color is pretty, but nothing special. I think I look best in pinkier blushes.
Why oh why does this have to have so much glitter fall out? I took off one lippie soley for that reason, but otherwise...this eyeshadow is soooo pretty! It's the perfect sparkly pink/beige with silver glitter. In my opinion, the glitter isn't OTT, but it's just really frustrating when it falls to my cheeks. This doesn't stop me from wearing it though, it's such a girly color that really highlights my eyes.
This is the perfect taupe for me, as a find a lot of other taupes are a bit too dark for my liking. This color is great because it is a lot lighter than other taupes I have, and has a good amount of silver in it which I love. The quality is amazing for the price - it's super soft and pigmented. This is a great neutral that isn't super boring. At $1.99 you can't really go wrong.
