LOVE THIS COLOR! Great pigment & flattering color to all skin tones.
It's okay... it looked good on at the counter but when I got it home it had more red undertones than I had anticipated.... VERY pigmented and a pretty color but I blend it with my Covergirls (Snow Plum) Cheekers & it looks great. I'm really picky with blush.
This is a great shimmer for summer. A luminator that has just the right amount of pink & shimmer. I have tried my sisters Benefit luminator and NARS Orgasm & this is right up there with them but WAY cheaper. I have been buying this for the past 3 years & will continue to keep buying it.
It's like a marker... it seemed to work at first but the product is drying and hardly seems to come out. I wasn't sure about how a lip stains & wanted to try an inexpensive one first but I don't think I can go off of this. I think I'm going to try a Stilla one I seen at Sephora.
This works good on they days I'm having a "Good Skin Day." If I am having a "Bad Skin day" it almost makes my skin look worse. I'd try the Loreal Studio Secrets Face Primer if you are trying a primer for the first time. I don't think Primers are for everyone. The smashbox primer is a tad pricey.

This is a GREAT matte lipstick for the price. This color is comparable to MACs Pink Plaid. Cheap & lovely.
I love matte lipstick & this & Please Me are my two favorites from MAC. I sometimes blend snob with Pink Plaid & it looks gorgeous!

So this power is defiantly matte & coverage is great. I find I still have to apply is through out the day as I still become shiny... I have combination skin. I get oily in the T-Zone. I wish it had a little better staying power but it looks beautiful on the skin.

WOW! Okay so we all know how expensive brushes can be but these are amazing for the price. They are SO soft compared to other brushes I have used & are such good quality. I will admit I'm not a fan of the eye shadow brushes, they don't seem to pick up much color but the facial brushes are VERY, VERY soft & work fabulously!
Liquid -Sephora - Hydrating & Smoothing Foundation

This does seem to smooth however it has no staying power & doesn't give much coverage. It's kinda lame & there aren't many shades to choose from.
Loose Powders -MAC - Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder
ICKSICKYUCK 7/1/2010 2:52:00 AM
This product is great at making pores look smaller & giving your face that finishing look. It is defiantly matte so if you are looking for a dewy look to your skin pass on this. I use my bronzer after I put this on due to the fact it can tens to make you look a tiny bit white. A little seems to go a long way so it lasts.
This is honestly just OKAY.... First of all you need to already have somewhat of a tan otherwise it's way to orange/red. What I do is blend it with my MAC Prep+Prime after putting on my foundation & it tones it down some. You have to be careful with bronzers... if you are fair skinned I don't suggest this one.
I love the brush on this mascara & the way it makes my lashes looks but it flakes really bad. :( If they made this in smudge proof I would use it always & forever... but they don't.

Ive used MAC Studio Tech, MAC Studio Fix, Clinique Repair Wear Anti-Aging, Estee Lauders Resilience Lift & SO many others but HONESTLY..... I LOVE THIS STUFF! It's a great price & they staying power is decent & makes the skin look beautiful. I am 28 so I have lines under my eyes & around my mouth & this doesn't settle in those cracks. I love it & will continue to buy it unless something better comes along. The
Eye Shadow -Hard Candy - Kal-eye-descope Baked Duo Rock n Roll

These eye shadows are great, especially for the price. They aren't glittery or sparkly.... more like a soft shimmer. The perfect amount of pigment ... the lighter colors tend to look better than the dark though. I love rush hour but I only use the pinkish mauve side, the brown is kinda ugly. I stick to my Antiqued by MAC for the brown when I blend. I was using mythology for the pinkish color on my lid but I will defiantly buy rush hour again just for the one side... it's only six$ beats 14$... STICK TO LIGHTER COLORS... DARKER COLORS ARE WACK <3
