I bought this a couple of months ago after lusting after it for a while. I like it, it's a nice fresh fragrance that isn't too overpowering (my kind of fragrance). Probably more of a day-time perfume though. I have quite a few different perfumes on the go so it will last me a long time however I will probably re-purchase.
I love this mascara (and the waterproof version). It makes my eyelashes nice and curly and thickens them as well. I can wear this all day and it doesn't smudge (well except when I accidentally doze off whilst wearing it heehee then yes it does smudge). I think that this could be my HG mascara!!!! Only downside is that it's slightly difficult to do your lower lashes as the brush is very big.
This is the first eyeliner I have bought for years as I could never get the hang of them. However, I bought this at the airport and have been using it ever since. Have now bought three more (Engraved, Buttery and So There Jade). Am still experimenting but loving it so far.
I have this in Warm as well. This is the first bronzer I have ever bought and I am pleased I bought this one, if I had bought another I may have given up on bronzers altogether! I use this product with a Sephora bronzing brush (which is excellent). I swirl the brush over both the shades and then tap off the excess and dab where I want it and then wipe off the excess bronzer with a tissue and then blend it in over my cheeks, nose and forehead. It leaves my skin with a nice shimmer and looks very natural on my VERY pale skin! I have also tried Benefit Hoola but the Px bronzer blows it out of the water!
Loose Powders -Prescriptives - Magic Liquid Powder

I LOVE THIS PRODUCT. It's my HG powder. I rave about it to everyone and I've got at least three people wearing and loving it. I am just surprised that more people don't think so but heyho. I love the fact that this powder is very light so it doesn't feel like it is caked on yet it sets foundation perfectly. I think it does give me a more flawless looking complexion and disguises the large pores on my nose. I still haven't finished my first tub yet (had it since Xmas 2004) and I got relatives to buy me two more the last time they were in the US (just so I didn't run out!).
This is a very good bronzer brush, it does the business and makes my bronzer look really natural. It doesn't streak or anything. I would definitely recommend this brush.
I bought this as a concealer brush and it works perfectly for this. I am very impressed it blends really well. So glad I bought it. Would recommend that anyone buys this.
Before using this brush I used my fingers, however from now on I will always use this brush! It is that good (although this is the only one I have used so I have nothing to compare against!). I found my foundation went on much better and blended to create a really natural finish when using this brush and it is very easy to use. I would recommend it to anyone.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

This stuff is brilliant. To be honest I didn't think my eyeshadow creased that much but I thought I would buy the Primer Potion and give it a whirl anyway. WOW what a difference it makes. My eyeshadow looks so much better than before and looks just as good if not exactly the same at the end of the day as it did at the beginning. It is a bit strange putting it on the first time if you are not used to a product like this but you soon get used to it. Definitely a HG product, wouldn't be without it. My only word of advice is don't get it in your eye it stings like hell! :)
Pressed Powders -Shiseido - The Makeup Luminizing Color Powder

This is a good powder, it covers as needed and does give a reasonably flawless finish. I used this product with a large powder brush as I think it gives a better finish than the sponge. Unfortunately though after using this product it only confirmed to me what I already knew, I am already using my HG powder. However in a fix this would be a good alternative.
Yuk didn't like this at all. I didn't bother using the brush that it came with (which was a waste of space in my opinion) and used my bronzer brush instead but I really didn't like the colour, the texture or the appearance of the bronzer so definately won't be using this again. I didn't really like the packaging either. My other bronzer is much better than this.
Concealers -BeneFit Cosmetics - Lyin Eyes Concealer [DISCONTINUED]

Luckily I didn't have to buy this product as I might have not done so if that had been the case as I don't like many BEnefit products. However, this one I do like. Like other people have said too much product does tend to come out at once and I really don't like the brush you get with it. BUT the concealer itself is very good, it matched my skintone perfectly (I used 01), gave great coverage, looked really natural and I found it didn't settle into my fine lines and wrinkles. I put it on over my foundation and used a MAC 242 concealer brush to blend it in because as I have mentioned previously the brush is crap. However this is the first time I have used it so am not sure how it will last throughout the day but so far I would definitely recommend it.
I like this scrub, it's nice and cheap too.
Fragrances -Christian Dior - Dior Addict - eau Fraiche [DISCONTINUED]

This is a yummy smell which is strange because I don't like the Dior Addict original, this one however I love.
This is a good product and does the business however, you have to be superman to get the stuff out of the tube especially when you get near the bottom of the tube.
