Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Color Tattoo 24hr Cream Gel Shadow in Painted Purple

I love the Color Tattoo line, these eye shadows offer the bold brilliance of a cream shadow with the longevity of a powder shadow. I think the low rating for this color as compared to the other ones is due to some having a different expectation of the color outcome. I know I did! On the outside of the pot, I thought the color would be a more bold purple, however, it's pretty 'tame'. I have come to like this color. It looks beautiful on dark brown eyes as a lonely shade swept over the eyelid.
I really wanted to give this foundation a chance because Maybelline has been really great with their makeup lately, however, this one seems to dull up my face. I guess I will stick to their BB cream. I have this shade in Honey Beige.

This is amazing especially if you have normal to dry skin. It lasts all day and gives a very nice dewy finish. My skin feels soft at the end of the day. Even though it has titanium dioxide, it does not look ashy on my skin. I have this in medium-deep.
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - inked in Pink Color Tattoo

This is a fantastic metallic light pink color that goes very well with a brown/dark brown crease shadow. It really opens up the eyes. Stays on all day. It is part of Metallic color family of Color tattoos, which is very hard to find in stores. These Maybelline Color Tattoos are just amazing, the vibrance of a cream shadow with the longevity of a powder!
I found this on clearance on a supermarket. I decided to try it out since I'm a makeup junkie and I already have three mascaras, lol. It is a voluminizing mascara but it gives excellent separation and lengthens very well. It seems to last all day without flaking so far. This is an underrated mascara.
I agree, this is a fantastic quad and the colors are long lasting. I love the peach on lids and the shimmery brown on the crease.
Polishes -Wet 'n' Wild - megalast - Red A Good Book

This is one of my most favorite reds! Wet n Wild has stepped up their game. The new bottles of megalast go on very smooth and opaque. All you need is one or two coats.This is a jelly type of color with a nice amount of shine. This is a true blood red that looks good against my caramel skin. The formula is also very long lasting though I used various topcoats.

Did they cut the price of this lipstick? This is a wonderful, warm dark brick red that looks fantastic on my caramel skin. It wears long too. Love it.
I actually prefer this than the raved Revlon Really Red color. This red is more neutral for my complexion rather than the more orangey and bright Really Red. It is matte and last a long time on my full lips. I'm disappointed that I hear that it will be discontinued. Why does Revlon always discontinue the really great products and colors? It's annoying. They did the same thing with the awesome SPA foundation. Revlon needs to stop that. Trying to keep up with fashion colors? Come on, red never goes out of fashion! They must be kidding!
This is among my favorite BBW scent. It balances that fine line between being sweet and too floral. This is a the perfect fragrance for daytime, year round.It is a very light, fluffy fragrance that packs a punch without being too cloying or overpowering. Love it! Smells very expensive!
This mascara was terrible for me. It did nothing for my short yet curly lashes. What makes it worse was that it flaked during the day.
I'm suprised at the low ratings here. Often the fragrances I enjoy are scored low on makeupalley, while the ones I dislike are given high marks. Fragrance is a personal thing. I bought this perfume after trying on a lotion from a friend. I thought it was a wonderful scent and immediately recognized that is smells just like the original Juicy Couture and it lingers for a fraction of the price! . Don't like Paris Hilton but find that this is a very underrated scent.

You know, I used to over look this nail color thinking it was just a sheer overcoat. But I was wrong. I saw the online reviews and swatches and it looked beautiful. So I bought it for 99 cents and was very impressed. The color is not sheer at all but a very rich dark (almost black) purple with a nice amount of glitter sparkle. Very nice for winter. Wet n Wild has definitely improved on their products, especially their nail polishes.
This is really great if you have relatively short and thin lashes like me. The mascara really makes the eyes look larger. The extremely dark color makes brown eyes pop. Update: 02/26/2012, this mascara flakes like crazy when it starts to dry. It has a very short shelf life. Too bad because the first few uses result in beautiful, long, thick lashes.
I agree with the reviewer below, perhaps it is my body chemistry but it does smell like body odor. It goes rancid. I didn't buy it, I used the tester.
