I can't live without this, nuff said. being a hairdresser, i get the opportunity to see how many different shampoos work, and nothing compares to this.
This is a purple holo. It's pretty, wears really well. Totally fabulous, would buy again and again!
shedded 3 hairs first time I used it, after that NONE verryyy soft, picks up my mineralized blushes(MAC) easily. Soo glad I found this little gem, I almost shelled out 40$ for the MAC skunk brush! this brush is so gentle!! i can rub really hard on my cheeks without irritating them. (They are VERY sensitive from acne gel, and puff up at the lightest things) in fact, when the MUA at MAC used the skunk brush by mac on me, my cheek swelled a little at the abrasiveness. the Sonia Kashuk one? no puffing or swelling. LOVE!
I really wanted to love this. This color was heavenly on me. Unfortunately, ever time I wore this my throat became sore and irritated.
Lip Gloss -Urban Decay - Shot-o-gloss in cosmopolitan

I bought this at TJ MAXX after it was discontinued. After a day I loved it so much I picked up another! Hopefully I can get Pina Colada and Mai Tai from swap, otherwise I just may have to go on ebay and pick me up some. I really like this gloss.
Blush -Bare Escentuals - Warmth All Over Face Color
Darkshadow 8/29/2009 7:07:00 PM
I'm very fair, (NC10) and this is just gross on me. Looks bright orangey brown. However, when blended REALLLLY well it doesn't look too bad as a contour, other than that, this gets no use. I don't like the 'bronzed' look, anyways.
Okay, so the reviewers below me hate this. I find it's okay. Takes the bite off of plucking, but what I like is it has alcohol in it to inhibit bacteria growth. Had an infection from an idiot at the mall who waxed my brows and didn't put anything on them to prevent infection, never wish to go through that again! Its a little tricky, yes. But I find it worth the extra minute because it really does help me through doing my eyebrows.
Eye Shadow -Urban Decay - Cream Eyeshadow in Gotham
Darkshadow 8/29/2009 7:02:00 PM
I like this on its own. A medium thickness line adds an instant rocker chick vibe. It's got sparkle, so it adds a little oomph and drama. I don't like this under other shadows, however. It's just too dry, won't let other things stick to it so well. Got this as a duo with "purple haze' at TJ Maxx for about $5. This is currently discontinued.
I like the smell, and slight taste. A bit moisturizing, so I like this. I truly hate the packaging though. Blegh! It picks up dirt and shadow particles and all manner of ickies from my make up bag and looks disgusting!
This is something nice to try once in a while. I use this when I don't feel like wearing alot of make up. It lasts decently, although it makes my lids look kinda crepey. It's a decent shadow primer, but I wouldn't bother getting it for the purpose if you already own Urban Decay's Primer Potion or a primer that you already love. Very similar to Mac paint, although I have never use the MAC version before. Not too bad, I like that it comes with its own brush and container. Got this on clearance for $2.54 at Target.
Powder -Bare Escentuals - Bare Minerals in 1.2, fairly light
Darkshadow 8/29/2009 6:43:00 PM
I love this. I'm young, oily and acne prone. Nuff said. This is drying, but it's good unless you have dry skin. I do use moisturizer before this in areas where I know my skin will be dry. It was decent coverage, and this shade is perfect. When I want a slightly paler look I use the color "fair". They both look great, however.
Liquid -Maybelline - Instant Age Rewind foundation
Darkshadow 8/29/2009 6:39:00 PM
I would not buy this product again simply because I'm trying to head more towards higher end foundations, my skin simply can't take cheap stuff anymore. Aside from that, I do love this! I'm young, but I still like this. It has a good texture. I rated the packing quality low because I want a pump or squeeze tube. Jars are impractical and dirty and gross. Finally, don't wear this if you intend to take flash photography! UGH I wore this for my 8th grade graduation party and when I got the pictures back, I was HORRIFIED. I LOOKED LIKE A GEISHA! You could see this bright line of demarcation(even though I blended well and it looked perfectly matched outside..) and I looked just plain scary!
Eye Shadow -Lancome - Color Design The Pink Carpet
Darkshadow 8/29/2009 6:35:00 PM
I'll start with packing. I love the sliding action! Easy to open without breaking a nail, yet fairly secure. The color is a nice hot pink matte, with the slightest sheen. To get the true color I definitely recommend a decent primer. This looks gorgeous with Lancome's "Pose" color! I'm a pretty big Lancome e/s fan, and honestly it's the only expensive shadow I have much faith in.
It's a sheer shimmery color. I like it, but never wear it because I simply do not wear lipstick often. It doesn't have a scent, which I'm glad because I usually find the smell of lipstick to be offending.
Lipstick -Estee Lauder - Pure Color Long Lasting Lipstick- Pink Parfait
Darkshadow 8/29/2009 6:26:00 PM
A nice, creamy color. This is for the shade "Pink Berry" however. Could not find it listed. Anywho, I love the smell of this, it's fairly sheer, but has enough color to be worth the purchase. I did not buy this, however it was a gift with purchase. I almost never use this, as I normally don't wear lipstick. But it's definitely not bad.
