Eyeliner -MAC - Sunbrown Glitter Eyeliner (TanRay)

these has micro copper glitters in a clear base. the color is pretty and i like how thin the brush is, that's why i gave it a 2. but the reason such a low rating from me is because i guess i expected to get more of a solid line of glitter. instead the outcome was a splotchy line of glitter. no matter how much i layered i just couldn't get a pretty straight simple line. it just looked like a broken line w/ gaps in between. not the look i was looking for.
a makeup artist reffered me to this when i told her i wanted that "j-lo glow". so i bought it and i tried it at home and the makeup artist was dead on. it did definately give me that j-lo glow. if you're into the whole j-lo thing...give this a try.
this is my mom's signature scent. and to me she always smelled good so i ended up taking on the scent also. i like it. not too strong...and i just like the scent.

the colors are okay...but sometimes it looks a little like cheap lipsticks. worst part is....they're all very drying. not moisturizing at all.
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Super Lustrous Lipgloss - Nude Lustre

this color is so pretty. the perfect nude shade that doesn't wash me out. i guess it's because of the hint of pink or rose. lasting power isn't that great but what do you expect for the price? but since it's cheap you can reapply as often as you'd like.
well i LOVE this scent. it smells very fresh and clean. hmm...dont' know if it smells like what it's named after but it does smell good. lasting power aint all that great but the scent is heaven.
i compared this to the nivea version and in my opinion i liked the nivea better. the nivea shimmer lotion had more sparkles visible. whereas to the jergens one...it does have sparkles but not as much as the nivea. i love sparkles and the more sparkles the better...so i would choose nivea compared to this. but this is still as pretty and looks gorgeous when light or sun hits it. my only gripe w/ it is how if you put too much it ends up looking white or yellowish. whereas the nivea for darker skin tones gives a nice hint of tint to make you sorta look like you had a slight tan.
it's so weird how some just didn't find any shimmer. well i too got a sample of both colors from a magazine and when i gave both a try i saw alot of shimmer. the one for medium to dark skin was just gorgeous. it had micro sparkles that didn't feel gritty at all. my sister told me my arms looked sparkly and almost wet. as for the light to medium color...it was also as gorgeous. it gave my arm more of a luminizing affect. sort of like becca pearl luminizer for the face...but this is nivea luminizer for the body is what i call it. both are very pretty. my fave is the one for darker skin tones because it gives me a slight hint of color to my skin. will definately purchase.
this smells exactly like the pineapple yogurt i bought at the dole pineapple resort in hawaii. very yummy.
oh wow...this is BEAUTIFUL. a shimmery peachy shade. too bad it's LE...but luckily i was able to win on off from ebay and give it a try. LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT. looks awesome w/ my tan! just brightens up my features. makes your looks look va-va-voom. gives me the sexiest lips ever. will definately keep buying!
Eye Shadow -Hard Candy - Old Skool Eye Shadow Quad

LOVE this quad! beautiful colors of neutral that makes my dark eyes sparkle. on me it lasts all day. can go from natural to dramatic. very versatile colors. my friend tried this on and she has light brown eyes and it just made her eye pop. beautiful...give it a try...if you don't like it then GIVE IT TO ME!!! =P
this smells like my comet or windex spray. i was expecting to smell CLEAN. but not clean as in bathroom cleaner clean. this reeeeeks. surprisingly enough 'Clean sweet layer' is even worse. a stronger, sweeter, stinky version of the public bathroom.
this smells like what a public bathroom smells like right after it has been cleaned. STINKY! i sprayed it on while i was at sephora and when my sister and i got into the car...she asked why i smelled like the bathroom. will pass on this.
Highlighters -Bobbi Brown - Beige Shimmer Brick Shimmerbrick

this stuff is EXPENSIVE. so it took me a looooooooooooooong time to decide whether or not to get this. but the great reveiws made me cave. and so glad i did. i LOVE, LOVE , LOVE this stuff. it makes me glow. i swear everytime i wear this someone always comments on how much they love my skin. and to tell you a secret...i have awful skin! sshhh! don't tell anybody. hehe. it just gives you a glow. i know it's expensive...and maybe for some the first 2 disappointed them. but i had all 3 and this is the only one i ended up keeping. i hope bobbi brown decided to keep this permanently in her line.
this kit is awesome! perfect for the summer. contains 4 glimmers in a cute little compact. the colors range from neutrals to perfect summery colors. i use them for an eyeshadow and surprised to find even on my cheekbones and colarbone to create a glowy look. very pretty. and it wasn't frosty on me at all. more of a shimmer but not too overpowering like some urban decay e/s's.
