Limited Edition for fall 2002, this is a deep forest green mascara that is really a wonderful overall mascara find. I like to have dark colored mascaras to pare with my stila liner shadows I use, to create a monochromatic look that really draws focus in to my eyes. This doesn't clump and gives me subtle volume.
Lips -Christian Dior - Addict Lipstick in Darkroom Brown

I must add to the raves for this shade! It is a plummy pink brown that goes on sheer and completely transforms my face, without making it the main focus. Ever since wearning this, people always comment on how nice I look, not how pretty my lipstick is. It perks me right up and has become my all time favorite shade.
Eye Shadow -Chanel - Les 4 Ombres - 74 Nymphea Quad

Just completely gorgeous! I find that Chanel likes to put out quads with wacky colors that don't go together very well IMHO, like Euphorea, but these are drop dead gorgeous colors the complement each other so well. I have used this almost every day since buying and plan to make it my only chanel repurchase item I have ever run across!
Has sparkly shimmery shades of plum ranging from a white with plum shimmer, to a dark eggplant. I use mostly to line my eyes and the white as a highlighter, because I am fair and still don't know how to tone down dark shadows so they work on me. Someone who is more skilled can probably use this a million different ways and look beautiful.
My favorite, aside from nymphea. It has knockoff colors of stila starlight, twilight, moonlight, and diamond lil. Plus, it is so creamy and stay put. A must have!
Highlighters -Chanel - Les Perles de Chanel - Pearl Face Effects

I know this is a favorite to many, but IMHO it is expensive crap. The pearls are tiny and crumble if you apply moderate pressure, they don't mix well and just look like a frosty mess when you do get them mixed, they crease like crazy, and don't give subtle color but frosty sugary coating to your feature you highlighted with this. Save your money and get a Px magic powder or even some drugstore item that gives a subtle and beautiful effect for 1/100th the price.
I really like this. They are warm toned, so I didn't think they would work, but they do. I use the turquoise color as a mix with the copper, and the other color to line. Not for every day, but a nice change from my cool brown and creams I usually wear.
I like this quad, it has a pale yellow, blue, and peach with navy color. I use the navy to line and the others as washes of color. Nice for spring.
This is a nice moisturizer and it smells lovely. Hasn't broken me out yet, and makes my skin feel nice in the morning. I haven't seen any anti-ageing benefits from it yet, but who knows.
This is so small, you couldn't get much more than 5 uses out of each well. It seems like the tiny gloss sampler trend has caught on this season (sugar and UD has similar one). For 18.00, I think I wished I had picked out one good color and bought the whole darn tube!
This is a tiny tube of caramel nude pink gloss. It is creamy and fairly long lasting, the only problem is that it is very sheer and you don't get much. Other than that, it has no offensive odor or taste.
These are *tiny* little inkblotter type containers of iridescent gloss. I got the purple white one, and it really does make my teeth look white and cools down my lipstics that are too warm. Very nice although you don't get much product
This is better than I was expecting. It was my first lacquer and it was so smooth and creamy with the perfect glossiness and shimmer from the glitter. Very pretty, but I don't advise applying anywhere else other than the lips!
I got this as an extra in a swap. It was a cute little tube of gloss and the color was bright pink. Once on, though, it was a pretty mauve rose color with a hint of fuchsia. I loved it, but passed it along to my sister's friends daughter. She wears it ever day and she looks so cute, because it makes her look like she has angel lips, all rosy and full.
If I could buy this anymore I would repurchase. It is the perfect solid platinum colored glitter. You can get loose glitter in this color from numerous companies, but I hate the mess from loose shimmer, so this is perfect. Plus it smells heavenly!
