I really like this product. It lasts a long time, has a cinnamony scent (smells like Urban Decay's Lip Gunk in Big Bang), and is sparkly and smooth. I have Diamond Dust, and it's great. It's extremely glamorous, I think. My lips looked huge! My only complaint is the color of the tube itself, which is kind of picky. But since mine has green iridescence in it, the tube is pastel green. I wish the tubes were one color, regardless of the product inside. I plan on buying another color.
I have always been disappointed by mascaras with comb wands. However, this was amazing! My lashes were so defined after just one swipe. I recommend this wholeheartedly. And the price...! Just great. I have yet to be disappointed by Rimmel mascara (Lash Maxxx, Lash Magnifier, Lycra Lash).
I love Duck! Black was starting to look too severe on me, so I decided to research some brown eyeliners. Well, everyone was totally right about Duck - it's perfect. I wanted a taupe-brown -- no red at all in this as I have found in other brownish liners -- and it makes my light brown eyes stand out. If you're looking for a color less intense than black but still gives your eyes a certain je ne sais quoi, then this is it!
I really enjoy this product. Most people use it for the no-makeup look, which it is great for, but I like to use it for a different reason: to contour! I already use BeneFit Dallas for cheek contouring, but I needed something less red/plum for my nose...and this is it. If you are very fair as I am - NC15 or NC20 - then this will work for contouring on you. But if you're not looking for that, then yes, this is also a great simple "no fuss" shadow.

LOVE this mascara! With just two coats, my eyelashes look ridiculous and fake (in a good way). I admit, the brush doesn't do a good job of declumping, like the Max Factor brush does, but that's what my eyelash comb is for...I would buy this mascara over and over again! The red and black tube stands out in my makeup bag as well. Love it. There's a picture of my lashes with this product on them in my profile for all who are interested :)
Eye Shadow -Stila - Fall in Love Eyeshadow Trio in Forest Clove

Beautiful faux leather compact, with the most velvety textured eyeshadows inside like only Stila can provide. The colors are nothing revolutionary, but they're still gorgeous. The colors are a creamy gold, a light olive, and a dark greenish-brown. The trio looks great when paired with the Spiced Pumpkin lipglaze. My only complaint is that once you open the compact, which is magnetized, it doesn't stay closed very well. A little disappointing. I guess I'll have to keep it in the box. Otherwise, a great (limited edition) fall product.
My favorite Demeter fragrance. Salt Air is harder to find now that Anthropologie no longer carries Demeter, but you can still find it in the oddest of places (I found it in an Eckerd in a classy Brooklyn neighborhood)! Not the greatest staying power, but that's true of all of the Demeters. I really think that Demeters are about the nostalgic value, and for me it's highest in Salt Air. Better than Ocean by far. (Plus I love the sleek bottles!)
In a red lipstick, the definition of elegance. I wore it to my prom and I got comments on it all evening. (In recent pictures of Gwen Stefani, it looks like she's wearing Coco Red, though she might be wearing Ruby Woo.) Stays on pretty well, but I would still recommend a lip liner (Carmin by Chanel is a good match). Makes teeth look superwhite!

I love this product! I'm very fair (usually the lightest or second lightest foundation color, no matter what brand), and this color looks beautiful on me. When I want to look a little more made up, I wear this. Very dressy, and I would definitely repurchase.
Amazing product. Somehow, I got mine for $3.87 at Rite Aid...I think the cashier made a mistake. At any rate, I would definitely buy this again. However, my allergies started to act up a few minutes after I applied the mascara...it's probably just the formula. If I continue to have problems with it, I'll just use the wand on a different mascara. The wand is outstanding.

Extremely intense green. Great on inner lids - I highly recommend this if you want your eyeliner to be noticed.

Great plummy eyeliner - I was always jealous of my friends with their blue eyes that always popped no matter what color eyeshadow or liner they used until I bought this! Makes brown eyes POP, seriously. I would definitely buy this again.
I love the scent of this lip balm! The company says it's supposed to smell like a blend of "maple and strawberry", but it doesn't really smell like that. To me, it smells like butterscotch. I love the packaging. My only problems with this product are that it's kind of pricey (however, I received mine as a gift), and it's not as emollient as I would like. Otherwise, it's a nice product. edit: after a few months, this went rancid, and got strange bumps in it. Gross.
I loved this product, so you can imagine how upset I was when the oil separated. Now when I squeeze the tube, oil just oozes out. How depressing...this smells so great! To me, it smells like daikon/being in a sushi restaurant. I'd buy it again...especially if I could be sure that the oil doesn't separate!!
I have nothing but love for Urban Decay's Body Haze - Vapor is fantastic. The product I can closest compare this to is Nars' The Multiple in Copacabana. Great product. A little goes a long way - I would repurchase this should I ever have to, but I won't have to, this'll last forever!
