I really like these and hope they don't discontinue them. They go on sort of sheer and slightly metalic but you can make them a little darker. I bought stone, storm, and fog. I had heard that fog was more of a periwinkle but really it's more of a medium to dark blueishy gray color on my pale skin. Makes a great colored smokey eye. Storm is a dark gray shimmery color and stone is a nice grayish brown kind of color. I really don't like browns at all, but LOVED the stone color. You only need a little bit of this stuff and it dries quickly to a powder finish that doesn't smudge. It lasts longer on my oily skin than a lot of products.
These tubes are pretty good sized for only a dollar and you only have to use a little so they're not going to be used up very fast. The product spreads pretty easy and isn't sparkly like other products so it looks pretty natural. I got toasted which is better as a highlighter because it's almost a champaign color and citrus which i like a lot as a blush and it's a lightpinkish slightly peachy color. EDIT: i had to take this one down a notch because it slid off my oily skin a little faster than expected. but it did leave a very pretty sheen behind.
Blush -Love My Lips - Love My Face Push Ups Cheek Color in Berry Flush

I actually like this color. It looks a little bright in the push up thing but i found that if i apply it by rubbing it on a tissue and then gently blending the product that's on the tissue onto my cheeks that it goes on nicer. It stings my lips a little if i try to put it on them though, but it really looks good. I kind of want to try the highlighter.
Eye Shadow -Cover Girl - EyeSlicks Gel Eye Color [DISCONTINUED]
LaBelleFemme 12/6/2006 8:10:00 PM
I have this in Midnight Metal-sparkly shimmery dark gray, Moody Blues-shimmery indigo, Black Velvet-shimmery black, Moondust-shimmery lightly sparkly white, Champaign-shimmery beige, Shimmering Sky-very light sparkly blue, and i really like them all. I prefer a thinner liner for black so i probably wouldn't repurchase that and i found that i like the covergirl liner with the smudger on it better for dark blue liner, but i absolutely love the Midnight Metal color and the Moondust looks alright in the very inner corners of eyes. They are somewhat difficult to sharpen sometimes and i do have to twirl the top into a point between my fingers at times.
I wonder if they changed the formula of this because compared with past reviews this product was amazing. It went on like a balm and had a semi glossy dark red color. It lasted for a while on me.(at least about as long as balm stays on, which for me is a while)I like how easy it is compared to actual red lipstick comparing the fact that lipstick usually gets messed up if my lips are dry. Edit: caught sight of myself in the mirror at a store, i don't know if it was the lighting but this stuff looked orange on my pale skin, scrubbed it off immediately and gave it to my friend.
You do have to swirl the brush around a little, but that really does not matter because you don't have to stab it in there or anything. The black goes on really nice and the plum color shows up good on me, but I am slightly pale(about a beige skin tone). I like the gel better than liquid and it's easier to smudge.
Eye Shadow -L'Oreal - Holographic - Royal Sapphire

This is way more sheer than Covergirls sparkling sapphire. It fades really badly and the top keeps falling off in my purse if i travel with it.
This is one of the most natural colors I have tried yet with cream blushes. It spreads nicely, but i like to apply it with a sponge because i'm not so good with finger blending. I like the slightly brown pink color and it looks really nice on lips without looking like you put blush on your cheeks.
Blush -Maybelline - Dream Mousse Blush in Pink Frosting [DISCONTINUED]

This blush is a pretty bright pink. The sparkles kind of bother me and if you put too much on it looks really unnatural. The packaging is nice and the container doesn't break if you drop it on your bathroom's tile floor. I have to apply it with my fingers because it's easier to get out of the tube and goes on better. All and all it's pretty good and i'd like to try some different colors.
I really like this stuff. I bought it in Ruby Falls and although the color is a little more pink than I'd like the formulas really good, my lips don't feel dry or anything that I usually get with dual staying products. The applicators pick up a lot of color even on the stain side so I wipe off half of it before i apply. I put this on this morning and it's still on through a few meals. The fact that i lick my lips a lot didn't really effect it either. The color it looks in the tube is veryveryveryvery close to the color it is on your lips so don't think it goes on really sheer. EDIT: still love this stuff, but i found that none of the colors are really nice day colors for my pale skin. when i want to make a statement with some color on my mouth though, these work great. especially when i'm feeling a little goth. i love the colors- grape ape, red lace, and red appletini
i don't really prefer this color but the gloss isn't that bad. i hate the applicator.
I love these colors, but i hate the applicators. It's a toss up as to wether i would repurchase becuase the colors actually really nice. For right now it's a NO.
The gloss itself is pretty good, but the packaging SUCKS! It smelled good in the begining, but then after about a week of constant use it started smelling really weird. Kind of like bacony fruit. The applicator is covered in furry stuff that makes dry skin on my lips flake off and be super noticable plus then they get stuck to the applicator. The only reason for the smell i can think of is that the applicator traped the germs and bacteria from my mouth and made it worse because I bought this is a berry shade and didn't use it very much and it still smelled alright after a while. Honestly the packaging makes me hate it and I am now very scared to repurchase it.

Oh this is SOO much better than their last gloss. This stuff smells amazing, tastes amazing (which can be bad because I lick it off my lips), and looks soooo very pretty. It's a sheer berry color that's amazingly pretty. This is a bargin in my mind for only five dollars!
