I bought this on a whim. My beloved Max Factor False Lash Effect is on its last legs and I cannot get that brand where I currently live. I wasn't expecting great things but this is a really good mascara. It does what it says on the tin. Tons of volume, very black, but make your lashes stand out. Can look naturalish, but you can build it up for nightime. Only 2 problems: this takes longer to dry than other mascaras. Second of all, it clumps a tiny bit. Not the best mascara, but definitely not the worst. Worth a try.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Perversion
Emmiloves 10/18/2012 10:54:00 AM
I love this eyeliner!!! MY HG for now!! PROS: Its so black, makes it look like ive effortly put on liquid eyeliner too. I wear this with urban decay potion primer. This will last all day on my lids, I love it so much! Application is easy, and very creamy but wont budge on your eyes. It dosen't last 24/7 really, but it will last around 8 hours before touch up which is amazing especially for my oily lids. CONS: The eyeliner is so expensive!!! Its worth it but I need to sharpen it so often, so i go through this eyeliner quite quickly! Also do not put this eyeliner very near your tearducts otherwise with collate into gunk in a few hours (gross!) As for the waterline, this is not good in my opinion. It moves off my waterline easily, ahh well for lids its amazing!
This eye makeup remover is okay at removing eyeshadow, but as far as waterproof eyeliners and mascara goes this dosent cut the mustard at all. I think its all off, then wake up the next day with panda eyes. Also can sting a little but not so much with my eyes. Will not be repurchasing,
The name of this product is a joke Pros: non-sticky! slides smoothly on. Not highly pigmented but nice colour all the same Con: massive con - this does not stay glossy. Without drinking anything, this dried out on my lips within 30 mins - 30 minutes!!!! Not long lasting, not a special lipgloss except I do like the constistency but not good bang for your buck.
I really like this gloss! I bought it really cheap in Summer Nude, love the packaging. Not much product goes on the wand, but its a lovely sheer glistening colour with pink and brown tints. Really pretty and would virtually go with any look, even without makeup putting it on would make a nice addition. Its not really special or dosen't stand out as my favorite gloss, but nevertheless is a great go-to when you don't know what to wear. And great for summer. One thing though, the gloss is quite thick. And the smell is a bit annoying, yes it smells nice but of Orange Creme you get in chocolate! Not the best smell for a lipgloss! For the price of $1 i would repurchase but not keen on getting other colors, to be fair they all look like they'd do the same job.
I have this in Lavish. I got it for really cheap, really impressed with the pigment, almost opaque, not glitter, just lush color. Its a really nice popping red, which would go with a bold look but definitely not for a day to day natural look, otherwise the word clown would come to mind. As for the boosting, I feel a tingle and it does boost my lips to an extent, not Angelina Jolie style though!! Would like to try again but in other colours :)
This is my HG perfume. It smells absolutely amazing, and with my body chemistry smells like a mix of vanilla, chocolate and musk. I always get compliments when I wear this. Very girly and not overpowering or cheap. If I could afford, I would wear this everyday. The price is very expensive, but in my opinion its really worth it.
I got this by mistake, was meant to buy the harsher, anti-blemish one. This scrub dosen't really to anything to my face, its too gentle and I feel nothings happening. Will not repurchase again, it just hasn't worked well for my skin type.
My HG Mascara. Looks amazing, can build up to a dramatic false lash effect or more natural. But definitely creates generally a more a dramatic look, it may not beat false lashes but comes close to it! I have it in black, if you have light skin tone/hair this may look too dramatic in black! I've rebought this time and time again its much better than any top makeup brands. Buy it and see for yourself :)
Lipstick -New York Color - Ultra Last Lip Wear -- 405B Blue Rose
Emmiloves 7/15/2010 6:36:00 PM
I would put this this lipstick comparative to NARS and MAC. And its peanuts price-wise! The colour is a deep fuscia with a slight blue undertone. The colour just works and pops. It's a daring color but one that would suit many complexions. This is literally an absolute bargain. It lasts all day, and is moisturising on the lips yet dosen't show that shiny "cheap lipgloss" look! The packaging could be better, I don't particularly like the fact you can't twist it down so it's in the tube - but hey, we can't have it all! An absolute staple in any daring makeup collection!
Lip Gloss -BeneFit Cosmetics - 24K Sexy Gold Lip Gloss [DISCONTINUED]

This is a nice lipgloss overall. It gives a soft golden brown pigment to the lips. It also is very shimmery, so is good for evening wear. This would look especially stunning on people with tanned skin. I have to take a lippie off for the smell - it's not bad, but it's not amazing and i can't put my finger on it. It kind of smells like body lotion. Also for a natural, slick look, this dosen't really do the job, and to be honest I cannot see myself wearing this much in winter, it's more of a summer product.
This is a great pallette and a must for beginners, or people who wish to achieve a natural look with their eyes. The result is subtle but very natural and really enhances your eyes without looking like you're wearing tons of makeup, if any, at all. The packaging is simple; there isn't that much product to be fair. It comes with detailed instructions about how to apply each eyeshadow to the specified part of my eye. It comes with quite good quality brushes, which are travel size and suits the whole theme of the product being portable and hangbag-proof. You can't go wrong with this, and the colours are shimmery but VERY natural. You can build up the colour as much as you like for a more poignant look, but as I said this is good for everyone including beginners. The colours blend well aswell. In conclusion, this is a good collection of suited eyeshadows. It takes the pain out of searching for eyeshadows that go well together. The liner brush is good but you need to have a steady hand. It comes with an undereye concealer, which is placed next to the shadows, which allows the particles of shadow to sometimes fall into the concealer - argh! The concealer is creamy and blends well with my skin, however I don't think it would suit all skin types and colours at all, thus that is why many other people avoid using the concealer. A must for anyones to achieve that natural look. A bit on the pricey side, but you can't go wrong with this.
This mascara is great and better than any I have used so far. However, it is quite expensive. It gives the eyelash a natural look, whilst really opening up eyes. On those days when you can't be bothered to put on makeup, this is a must. This mascara is great if you like the long lash effect, whilst being natural and without the spider legs. One word of advice: Do NOT OVER DO IT! 1 or 2 coats is enough otherwise it doesn't work as well. Its kinda pricey, but worth it in my opinion.
