I have a few polishes from l.a. girl's disco brites collection. THey are all very vibrant, bright and apply smoothly. This colour stood out the most to me because it's a beautiful aqua turquoise shade that is actually very close to Essie's In the Cab-Ana (love) the only difference is it's a bit darker. So if you missed out on ITC then you can grab this one for $3. They are also supposed to glow under a black light but I haven't tried that yet.
GORGEOUS! This shade practically jumped out at me in the store. I hesitated for a while and broke down and bought the last one. This aqua azure is exactly the shade of a caribbean ocean. Formula applies so nice you could make it a one coater. Snap this one up while you can! *I thought I had found a dupe for it with L.A. Girl Disco Brites nail colour in Vinyl Record, it's very close but VR is a little darker. Essie left and L.A. girl on the right in the pics above.
This is one of my favourite go to mascaras for big thick lashes. Can get a bit clumpy when applied thickly but nothing that can't be fixed by a good lash brush. Really liking it for dramatic volume.
I stayed away fro the original formula because it was so greasy and light in coverage but when I noticed they came out with an oil free version I had to check it out. I can't believe how nice the coverage is (barely need a concealer) and the finish is actually matte! My skin is acne prone and sensitive and I haven't had any problems with this so far. The only thing I'd change is the packaging...the formula is so runny that you can't put it on it's side with the cap open or it will run out. Otherwise this is my favourite BB cream so far.
Lipstick -Rimmel - Lasting Matte Finish by Kate Moss

The only reason I took off a lippie was because of the perfumy taste. Other than that I really liked these lipsticks. The formula is matte but not dry and chalky feeling on lips. I have 101 which is a creamy soft pink nude and 111 a fiery red.
BB Cream -Rimmel - BB Cream Beauty Balm 9 in 1 Skin Perfecting Super Makeup

I give this a solid 4. The only problem I had was it oxidized a bit and settled into pores a little bit too. Other than that I think this is a good BB cream for the low price I paid. It covers quite well and doesn't make you shiny like many other BB creams. I would say this is more like a light foundation than a BB cream since I don't think it really has any skin treatment properties.

Lust for Blush is a pretty pinky nude shade that goes with everything. Formula is slick and very moisturizing.
Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Homemade Vitamin C Serum

I've been mixing vitamin c powder with my regular moisturizer for the past few weeks and i've noticed a significant difference in my skin. It's more toned, even, redness is reduced and most importantly CLEAR! I haven't had more than a couple tiny quick healing pimples since I started using this stuff. I battle with random cystic pimples around my chin which leave scars and even this has helped reduce the marks left behind. I'll continue to use this in hopes that it keeps working for me.
Yes...as the reviewers below mentioned, this is very dark almost black. It's exactly what I wanted and the formula applies very nicely...you could get away with one good coat with this one.
Lovely non-sticky nice smelling lipglosses. I have Nude Kiss (love) and Glamour to Go which I wasn't as impressed with color wise...I found it too frosty and a bit dated. as for formulation though, they are very nice.
This is a lovely pale (not too pale) nude that complements many smokey eye looks. The only reason I took off a lippie was because it could use a bit more pigment.
I got the one for blondes (light) and I found this bronzer a little too orange for me. Also it seemed to go blotchy after a couple of hours wear.

Beautiful color and great quality. Applies like a dream.

Beautiful deep shimmery black/grey shade with amazing pigment. Blends perfectly for a sexy smokey eye. Essence has some great shadows!
Mascara -Essence - I Love Extreme - Volume Mascara
Kat2004 9/10/2012 5:49:00 PM
WOW! i'm impressed. I'm a mascara junkie and have tried everything from Wet n' Wild to Dior and this mascara blew me away. I love mascara that makes my lashes look false and this is the one that comes closest so far. Another reviewer had mentioned the Annabelle Le Big Show was her fav, and I do like that one as well, but this one gives me extra length as well as crazy thick lashes. I can see how people would have problems with clumping, but that can be helped with a fine eyelash comb. Best $5 mascara I've ever tried!
