Love this blush! In the pan, it looks like it would be very dark, but it not once you put it on (although it is buildable). It's a beautiful berry/burgundy color, unique in my collection. Can't go wrong with a NARS blush. Finely milled, and silky smooth. Worth every penny, IMHO.
I have a large nail polish collection, including high-end as well as drugstore brands, and I can honestly say that these are the WORST polishes I have ever bought. They are on the expensive side ($10.50 each for 9 ml), and yet they are of very poor quality. Of the 5 that I ordered (Galaxia, Fenomeno, Orion, Estrela, and Onda de Luz), not one of them is even remotely pigmented. Of the 5, three resemble each other very closely, and the other two resemble each other very closely. These are supposed to be holographic, but they are not at all. Estrela is even frosty. What the heck? Oh...and they don't dry. Save your money ladies...don't bother with these hideous, overpriced polishes.
I love, love, love this blush! I never got to try the old version of Outlaw, but the new version is just fine with me. Pretty much HG status. Love the finely milled texture (that is the hallmark of Nars blushes). It glides on so smoothly and evenly...just perfect. The color looks very natural, even on my PPP skin. Overall, a beautiful, beautiful blush. Worth the price!
I own quite a few polishes, and this is one of the most beautiful in my entire collection. Amazing depth of color. Great formula, too. It *is* a glitter, so it needs several layers of topcoat to be perfectly smooth, but the payoff is worth every bit of extra effort. Can't say enough about how much I love this one!
I do think that this product helps my foundation go on smoother, but I have to be really careful to just use the *tiniest* amount. Too much, and it's like the Exon Valdez all over again. I will not repurchase though, since I have found out that Monistat Powder Relief Chafing Gel is basicaly the same thing, and is $6 rather than $36. Works just as well for me, so why spend so much more?
This has become one of my HG eyeshadows. Such a neutral, versatile color...but definitely not boring. I only wish the container wasn't so narrow and deep. The more I use, the harder it is to get my brush down in there. Would definitely repurchase, though.
Love this polish. It's not what many would think of as a "holo", it's actually a glitter. Very unusual color...kind of purplish/periwinkle. It's gritty by itself, so it needs a lot of topcoat to be smooth. Kleancolors are known for their strong smell, but I can overlook that because I love this color so much. And for 99 cents, it's hard to go wrong.
Love this mascara. It's one of the "tubing" mascaras, so it takes a little finesse to apply. This is the ONLY mascara I have found that lasts all day without smudging on me...and it rinses off with just warm water. Only two drawbacks: it's expensive ($24 at Sephora), and it dries out quickly. I have been able to stretch mine out a little by adding visene to the tube, but it only gets me a few more wears. Overall, a great mascara though.
I absolutely hated this mascara. Spiky rubber brush that does nothing to separate lashes. Gloopy, clumpy formula that gave me spidery looking lashes. No lengthening effect, no curl. Bleah! Back to Sephora this mess goes!

I have 7 or 8 of these, and I love them! Great colors to choose from, and great staying power for me. I apply them with a brush, and get good buildable color. I am a huge fan of Benefit's cream eyeshadows, but I like these just almost as well...and for a fraction of the price. Woo hoo!
Love the color (a greenish, gold-ish brown, with an ever so slight pink shimmer). However, this one is not up to par with the usual Rescue Beauty Lounge formula. It's thin and gloopy at the same time, and also streaky. Took me three coats to even it out (usually takes 2 with RBL). After messing around with application with the tempermental formula, I finally got it to look ok, but I don't think the color is unique enough to bother with re-purchasing this.

Absolutely gorgeous mermaidy-teal color! Glides on as smooth as silk, and stays put all day. What's not to like???
Love this color. Would be most flattering on warm skintones. I apply it with a brush, and it blends beautifully. Wore it in Jamaica, in some really intensly hot and humid weather and it stayed on perfectly. Would definitely repurchase, and am going to go back for more colors. It's not exactly cheap, but the pot should last a pretty long time. This one would probaly make a nice eyeliner, too.
Love this color. It's not too taupe, not too grey. Would be flattering on most skintones, except probably olive. I apply it with a brush, and it blends beautifully.

This is the worst MAC product I have ever tried. I bought this in Boot Black. Felt-tip applicator is not bad, but the product itself is just awful. I like a very opaque and intense black, and this is certailly not. It skipped going on, and was smearing and smudging before I could even finish applying the rest of my makeup. Major FAIL, as far as I am concerned.
