The only 2 things i love about this product is the texture on my lips and the scent. Its Heavenly. I did not know how soft it was going to be in the pot so i picked up a lot of product the first time. I just shrugged my shoulders and layered it on my lips and thank goodness i looked in a mirror because my lips were ghostly white! Its a very pale pink in the pot and its a VERY pale pinkish purplish on my lips. i wiped some off and from now i have to do double duty with applied my Tatre lip surgence in smitten before i apply a LIGHT coat of the lip butter. I do love the smell but i would not rebuy. If it was in a tube maybe yes...but not in the pot.
Simply put this is an awesome color. One to def have in your collection for everyday use. I can make dramatic eyes with darker colors in the corner or keep it soft and simple with this all over lid and wedge in crease. Keep in mind its frosty but i like that it makes the eyes look alive!
I am addicted to balms and lipglosses. I bought this one because i needed a fix and it was cheap. There is no color even though it looks pink in the tube but it does feel really smooth on my lips. I like that it gives a tiny bit of sheen. I use it as a base and cover to the chunky lipstick pencils i have. I probably wouldnt buy it again because i do not care too much for the plasticy smell.
Moisturizers -Clinique - Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief

Love this lightweight gel moisturizer for my oily acne prone skin. I was using a thicker moisturizer before but i recently switched to this one and i love it. It really does feel like you are splashing your face with water. Very refreshing and it doesnt make my skin get any more oily. It has not broken me out and i use it after i wash my face with black soap in the morning. Will repurchase when its empty. and let me add that i did a fake spray tan for my friends wedding and it completely dried my skin out. I had gotten dry patches around my eyebrows and mouth. One use of this and all that went away! It made my skin feel fresh and smooth and clean without any residue feel. Love this stuff.
I REALLY like this color. I have to wear neutrals to work and I actually took this color to the salon for my mani. It is a tad streaky even for them but i looove the color and how it looks against my skin tone NW25. I have gotten so many females making good comments about my nails.
Nothing fancy but i love this. I am a chapstick/gloss addict and this one i go loco over if i misplace it. Love the smell and slight taste. Very moisturizing.
I would'nt classify this as a scrub really. I got a really good size sample and the texture is very light and whipped lotion with raspberry seeds. They don't really scrub anything or at least it doesn't feel like it. It does make my skin smooth so for that i give it 4 stars.
I have to wear very nude blah colors on my nails for work (military) so for work sake i love this color. It's a step up from the flesh tone colors out there. Its a light mauvey lavenderish color. my friend calls it my old lady color. So it isn't for everyone. I have had no problems with streaking but i always top my colors with essie good to go and its a shiney flawless finish to this gorgeous color.
I like many others received a pretty nice size sample of this. I was able to get 3 days of use out of mine. I switched my normal moisturzer (olay total effects tone corrector) and primer (UD pore perfector) for this and then applied my foundation over. So far the only small CON would be the scent is horrible but only last a couple of secs. The PROS are that i can tell my face isnt as oily during the day. I usually have to poweder once or twice through the day and i havent using this. I do not know if would buy the full size only because its kind of pricey....but when i go back to my other routine and i miss the look the sample gave me i might be tempted to go buy it. I can say that i have very large pores and some scarring on my checks and i did not get an instance "flawless" look. It didnt help my large pores at all.
I don't even remember where i first saw this color at but when i looked at a few pictures on temptalia i fell in love. i looked at all the good reviews so i went ahead and ordered it on sephora.com last week. I got it in the mail the other day and have been wearing it for the past two days. Love the creaminess of it but i still go ahead and use some balm with it. It is more rosey than the pic on temptalia. it might be cause my natural lip color is more pink than hers but still i love it. Very good for my office job and i can still wear it out with a dark smokey eye. I said yesbut I do not know if i would repurchase only because its $22 and i don't wear lipstick everyday. I will probably get a good long use out of this one tube.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Perversion

Super dark black, which i loooooove, and very creamy which makes it easy to apply but it smudges like CRAZY!!! Now my skin is oily and my eyes do get watery but i want to look for something that can try and stay in place. This wasn't it.
I bought this as inexpensive setting powder and it seems to work well. I bought clear light 15 and it seems to match me pretty well. I use it during work to get rid of shine on my face and i use an ELF powder brush. Doesnt leave me cakey at all and i can reapply over and over and it still doesnt get cakey. I do hate that it doesnt come with a mirror.
Makeup Brushes -Sigma - E45 Small Tapered Blending (was SS226)
1CupcakeJunkie 1/9/2013 3:29:00 PM
Just started to use Sigma brushes and i really like this one. I was using the MAC white tip blending brush but i like how this one tapers to get in the crease and only the crease. Its small enough to where you can specically direct where you want to blend not make the whole lid look a hot mess. Def a good buy!
This is one of my favorite shades to wear to work. I have to wear nuetral colors and this is pretty simple but the pinkish lilac undertones give it a little something extra. Doesn't look "grandma" at all and i can wear it for a long time before it chips.
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Vineyard Peach Body Butter

I have been searching for a natural peach scented lotion for awhile and when i saw reviews on this i went ahead and ordered online. I love this stuff. It's super creamy and not greasy at all. Smells like juicy peaches. I wear Love from Express and when i need some lotion it doesnt clatch with the scent of my perfume. I will def be buying this again when i run out. Though the jar contains a lot of product and you don't need much at all.
