Let me start out by saying at first I wasn't sure about this blush. When I went to check it out the first time the MA swirled the lilac and the heart together and I felt the color applied a nice sheen of basically only pink... while pretty, I felt like it wasn't that unique. Had her hold it for me anyways so I could decide later. Came back again (diff MA) and she applied just the lilac part on my cheeks and applied the heart color more towards the back and slightly up into my temples! It was way more unique this way and defo convinced me to buy it! Hope you try it this way.. and many other ways! I used as an eyeshadow as well and I love it!
Lipstick -MAC - Mellow Mood - Electroflash Collection

I love this lipstick! I received this in my Vain & Glorious lip bag set along w/ Baby Sparks Dazzleglass and In Synch lipliner. I find these all go well together (you have to blend In Synch into your lips esp if you have pigmented lips like myself) I found this color to almost be a "my lips but better" shade but it's just a few hairs darker than my actual lip color. Even though it's very moisturizing.. I do think it lasts quite awhile (several hours) and I find even when most of it's gone it still leaves a slight stain in color on my lips (which i love!) I also adore the gold trimmings on the tube. Only reason I prob won't buy again is because I'll end up moving onto the next thing once done with this tube. I'm fickle lol
I got this Dazzleglass in my Vain & Glorious lip bag (one of my first.. also got Gone Romancin' too.. ) I have to say I am impressed with these! Baby Sparks specifically is a sheer pastel pink color with blue/purple/white shimmer. It doesn't do so much alone on my slightly more pigmented lips...adds a nice slight pink shimmer gloss and leaves my lips feelings moisturized... but over pretty much ANY lip color this just makes it that much more amazing! I also love the staying power with these glosses... they seem to last me around 4+ hrs.. seriously! Although I do love this gloss I'm not sure if I will buy again considering how dupeable it is... but for the staying power I just might cave in and buy again if I run out!
This Dazzleglass (coupled with Baby Sparks because I also bought Vain & Glorious Lip bag) were my first Dazzleglasses ever! I have to say I am really impressed with Gone Romancin. My lips are slightly pigmented so the shimmer/frost in the gloss seems to be muted it a bit, which I like! I love the lilac-y color it has.. with a slight pink glow from the dazzle. This is a personal favorite out of all the glosses I've bought in my lifetime. It looks great alone or on top of pretty much ANY lip color you like! My personal fave combos are Innocence, Beware w/ GR or Viva Glam Gaga w/ GR!
I love these wipes! I usually used Neutrogena's makeup removing wipes but once I tried these I found these removed way more makeup and left my face feeling so much nicer than the Neutrogena. These are a tad more expensive compared (I paid $8.39 for the Neutrogena that came with 25 and the MAC is $21 for 45) but like I said they are better wipes overall so very much worth the money imo.
Lipstick -MAC - Innocence, Beware! (Venomous Villains)

I had to write a review on this at it is amazing! So a little story first.. I went to MAC to buy Creme D'Nude and actually I did buy it but then the girl at the counter was like well did you see our new nude from the Venomous Villains collection? I was like no0o! She showed it to me and instantly I wanted it over the Creme D'Nude (so I exchanged them)... It has a more pink tone that I felt made my lips look better. It is very velvety smooth, very moisturizing, nicely pigmented! I love this lipstick even more because it's a nice everyday color. The packaging with Cruella DeVille is a nice bonus
Mascara -Maybelline - Full 'N Soft Mascara Waterproof
Fr0shy12506 7/24/2010 10:47:00 AM
I can't believe I haven't reviewed this mascara yet as this is my HG! This mascara is true to it's name is every sense! I have it in Very Black and I will say... This mascara is very black! Unlike most mascaras I've tried (HE and DS) it is not crunchy or clumpy AT ALL! It is very much "Full & Soft." I love how it seperates my lashes and really boosts the length as well... Overall this is the best mascara and I even keep a backup just in case because I truly couldn't go without this product! Will keep buying again and again
Lip Gloss -Maybelline - Shiny-licious 83 Raiz n Razzle
Fr0shy12506 6/16/2010 1:46:00 PM
This gloss is not too bad, but not perfect... It does have a grapey/raisiny scent. It has virtually no taste. It has glitter in it... which i do find a bit gritty on my lips. The color itself is a mauve color, slightly plumish toned but it is quite sheer on the lips. I find it's best used over a lippie. The price point was like $6.50 (canadian) at the drugstore but i got it on sale for $1.80 and I have to say I would never pay $6.50 for this gloss. I like other shiny-licious glosses better (strawberry tart) but this one with the glitter is my least fave
Lipstick -New York Color - Ultra Last Lip Wear - Snowcone
Fr0shy12506 6/15/2010 11:27:00 PM
I love these lipsticks! This color ''snowcone'' is a shimmery barbie pink that when applied quite lightly on myself i can actually pull it off a bit (and with a little gloss on top) the formula is great .. my lips are a tad on the drier side so this is perfect and moisturizing! only con is wish they had more colors
Lipstick -New York Color - Ultra Last Lipstick in Mousse
Fr0shy12506 6/15/2010 11:08:00 PM
I love these NYC Lipsticks! Although I'm kinda confused if maybe I have the right mousse color .... is it 420B? I just noticed ppl saying it's pink and well I can't really say this lipstick I have here is much pink at all really.. on me it's more of a nude lip color but a tad darker. kinda like some ladies said 'my lips but better' anyways the formula is the best! creamy, doesn't fade everywhere, it's just plain amazing - everything you love about a lipstick and more and the best part about it is I got it for $1.80 canadian and it's the best purchase ever! only con - wish they had more colors!!
Lip Gloss -Maybelline - Shiny-licious lip gloss in Strawberry Tart
Fr0shy12506 6/15/2010 10:53:00 PM
I bought this gloss in the new packaging with the plastic tip - totally awesome! - way better than the fuzzy tip one! The gloss itself is great! I like how it actually smells like the name "strawberry tart" but in case anyone is wondering.. it doesn't taste that way ! It doesn't have a taste and is quite moisturizing imo so that's a plus for me! It gives a wonderful pink peachy colored shine and is perfect alone or over a lippie! Not sticky but does have some ''tackiness'' to it.. just enough to stay on your lips for awhile but i do find it needs reapplying at least every 2 1/2 hrs (lasts longer over lippie) overall - a good product that i'm glad i stumbled upon!
Eye Shadow -Sally Girl - Mini Baked Eyeshadow - All colors
Fr0shy12506 5/15/2010 8:32:00 AM
I bought 3 of these e/s (a purple, bronze, and blue color) from sallys about a month ago and can honestly say these e/s are REALLY awesome! Very pigmented! When first opened they have that baked shell so I used a sponge-tip applicator to apply - once the shell was gone i can now use my regular brushes to apply the shadow and i still get the same pigment on my eyes! (we all know sponge-tips will apply any e/s to its opaquest) These are really great for girls like me who haven't gone outside the box in terms of colors (usually wear neutrals) so these make it very easy to experiment not only with colors but with application process as I am learning the ropes for that too.. So at a $1 in price you can't go wrong! Can't wait to buy more! Go try these!!
I like this stuff a lot!! and I would have to agree with everything mokey1 says (though I don't have the other liner) but this liner does come out a tad "drier" than usual so its not goopy or so liquid that it takes forever to dry so when you blink it smudges.. i think we've all had that happen before! This is so0o much better than the revlon colorstay stick eyeliner.. the stick I find to be veryyyyy irratating to my eyes and would always smudge everywhere! I also couldnt get into my lashline the way I can with this pen.. so I think the pen works much better for getting that nice close line instead of the thick chunks (which i personally find not so pleasant or appealing on myself) Only con is having to shake it up before each eye.. but for the price of the product and the fact that it gives me the overall look i want - kudos and would buy again for sure!!
Blush -L'Oreal - True Match Superblendable Blush in Baby Blossom
Fr0shy12506 3/31/2010 8:19:00 AM
I've had this blush for awhile now so I thought I should a review! It's a nice cool toned blush and yes it does have a shimmer to it, but I never seem to notice it when i wear the blush. I do find it a bit chalky so I find blending it is key but its super easy to blend so that is no problem! The brush inside is terrible and I don't recommend using it to apply the blush. I also dont like that it tends to fade quite easily (even over foundation thats on top of primer) so I will be looking out for better blushes but this one isnt bad to give that pinch of pink color that would look good on most any skin tone i think! I use physicians formula eyebrightener in natural eyelight to highlight over this blush and i find it gives me more of the glow I am look for!
Eye Shadow -Physicians Formula - Eyebrightener, Natural Eyelight(powder)
Fr0shy12506 3/31/2010 6:43:00 AM
I love these eyebrighteners!! You definitely have to learn how to use them properly or you could end up with results that aren't so lovely! I also find this product has many uses! The ways I use it : When applying the product how it's supposed to be used (an eye brightener) I DO NOT use a brush! The brush just waste product imo and it's just much easier to control amount and where you want it with your finger! If all you are doing with this is eye brightening, nothing fancy - no brush! unless you are doing something like blending this over top another eyeshadow to give it a new look, then use a brush to pick up a small wash of color. I also find it's great to swirl my blush brush in and put it over top whatever blush i am wearing for the day to give the sort of glowing almost ethereal look! Love this and will buy again! (natural and classic and berry one are amazing!)
