Liquid -L'Oreal - True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Makeup

I love this foundation! One of my favorites! I wanted something sheer and moisturizing for the fall/winter months. I got the shade Sun Beige (W6) As far as consistency goes it's very much so like the Maybelline BB Cream (another light foundation I love.) it's a very runny liquid it spreads easily and blends very well. I have combination skin that gets drier during cold weather months. This foundation moisturizes and keeps my skin looking healthy. It gives it a bit of a glow without looking oily. You can still see your skin through this makeup which I love. I use this to even out my skintone and keep my skin well moisturized. If you are someone that wants those things I'm sure you will love this product. If you are someone that has oily skin or wants a foundation with a lot of coverage then this isn't it. For people with my skin type I highly recommend it.

I LOVE THIS STUFF! I tried this after hearing Bethany (Macbarbie07) on youtube rave about it. It's summer and I'm tan so I rarely even put any foundation on. I just wanted something light and simple because most of the time I don't even like the way foundation looks on my face. I can't stand feeling makeup sitting on my face. At first whenever I started putting it on it felt and blended like a gel type watery lotion. My first thought was uuuhh oh I don't think this is going to blend or wear well but I was wrong. I got the color 130 Medium/Deep and it matches perfectly to my skintone. What I love about this is it feels as though you are wearing absolutely no makeup at all. It blends so well that it looks more natural than any type of makeup I've ever worn. It evens out your skintone and gives you a nice glow it doesn't make your skin to dry or oily it balances it out perfectly. It also seems to stay on all day! I know a lot of people like that it has SPF in it that's really the only drawback to me but I'll only wear it indoors anyways. If you are someone who already has good skin and only wants to wear very minimum makeup you'll love this!
Bikini so teeny is a pretty blue with a slight purple tone to it. It's a nice unique shade for summer. Takes 2-3 coats the formula is too sheer for just one.

This product is a summer must have! I love it! It's perfect. I have fine yet thick long straight hair and I usually cannot use a lot of product in my hair because it either weighs it down so much, makes it sticky, oily, tangly or all four. This product done none of those things. My hair only gets dry and frizzy like during summer towards the ends and I hate imperfections. I used this after washing my hair I let it air dry only for about 5 minutes and then put a dime size on my hands rubbed my hands together and then appiled towards the ends and then did that again to areas I missed. It makes my hair smooth, soft and tangle free! I don't know how people are having problems with stickiness or anything else they must be gooping it on their hair.
I'm not a big fan of glitter polishes but my eyes were always drawn to Essie's "Set in Stones." I finally caved and bought it. It's so pretty and sparkly. It looks amazing layed over polish and I can tell that it would look so sparkly and pretty on it's on. I think if you wore it by itself it would take up to 3 coats. Layed over a color it takes 2 light coats. Tip whenever your applying it DON'T do fast strokes go slow to spread the glitter out. If you do quick fast strokes all of your glitter will go to the top of your nail. Also this glitter polish feels pretty smooth on your nail it doesn't feel all chunky and gritty like most glitter polishes do. I've tried it over Essie Lilacism & China Glaze Shocking Pink I also know it looks amazing over China Glazes For Audrey.
I love this! It's amazing. Essie's nail polish is either a hit or a miss. This applied well and was long lasting! I wore it for a week and whenever I took it off it really looked great I had one small chip that was barely noticeable. The is a light lilac color that has blue undertones. It looks like a light muted purple/almost blue. I think it's a very lovely color that is unique. For spring I like it better than OPI's do you lilac it. OPI's DYLI is more of a dark purple that in my opinion could be worn all year long. Lilacism is the perfect shade for spring time!
I'm currently wearing this on my toes! It's such a bright fun hot pink! I would say the color is like a bright bubblegum pink. It's neon so it dries matte. Apply white nail polish as a base prior to "shocking pink" and all it takes is one coat. The white nail polish underneath makes the color pop more. I bought this and "pool party". I like this one best because pool party is so bright and dark that it almost looks red this is definitely PINK.
This is one of those colors that is so unique and I love, BUT the application is horrible. I'm someone that is very good at applying difficult colors and even it took me a while to work with. It takes about 2-3 maybe even 4 coats to make it completely opaque and evened out. It's very streaky, neon & dries matte. It's a gorgeous peachy/orange/coral color you usually see brighter neon polishes then this which is why I love it so it's not scream out loud bright. I would repurchase just because the color is unique and I'm willing to take the time with it but if your someone that's not I would skip this one!
This is my favorite blue to wear! I love it! It's a very unique blue and I haven't seen any other colors that would be exact dupes for it. It's like a creamy aqua blue color. Opaque in 1-2 coats. A must have for your nail polish collection.

I bought this polish to use as a base color to do leopard nails. It worked perfect for that. I was really only planning on using the color for that but I'm planning on wearing it alone as well it's a gorgeous gold foil color that looks sort of copper/bronzey. It took 2 coats to be completely opaque. The brush is amazing it's big thick and flat. The polish is long wearing too I went 5 days before it barely started to chip which wasn't even noticeable.
The perfect soft milky baby pink color. For me application was easy but for others it might not be. It took two coats for it to be opaque. The formula is kind of on the thick side. If your having trouble apply it quickly and don't go over the same spot too much or that will cause it to streak bad. This color was limited edition so I'm not sure if you can still purchase it. If your looking for a dupe Essies "French Affair" is as close as it gets.

I love Cotton Candy and this smells just like it. So sweet and sugary. The smell actually stays on for a long time. For the price this is the best "cheap" perfume I've ever purchased. I honestly like it way better than Pink Sugar and you can get this for like $4 a bottle and Pink Sugar is around $45 dollars. Pink Sugar to me has a chemical smell to it this does not.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this color by FAR one of my favorites. It is a pink that has a peachy shade to it. It is so unique which is why I love it soo much! It flatters my skintone so well. A lot of people complained about application being a problem. I did two coats and didn't have any problems it might have streaked on one or two nails but it's a pastely shade and that is typical with them. This was my first Orly polish which I bought a week ago and I now have bought 3 other colors and plan on buying more. I think it's great quality. This polish has the best top I have ever used I really didn't think a top would make that much difference, but you can grip it good for better application. I hope that Orly keeps this color permanently because I definitely plan on repurchasing.
This color is Barbie Pink. It's so pretty and super girly. This is the kind of color I would wear on my nails every single day and never get tired of. If you like hot pinks and bright colors this is for you!
I love this color. To me it's more red than orange. Pictures don't show the color accurately in my opinion. If you go on OPI's website it's listed under the reds. I think it's a red color with a slight orange tone to it. It's a really pretty all year round color that goes with everything. Started to chip in about three days. I was either going to get OPI On Collins Ave or Tasmanian Devil Made Me Do it since they are both suppose to be similar Tasmanian Devil is much more orange. I went with On Collins Ave because I've heard Tasmanian Devil stains your nails bad.
