Staple for me... creamy, matte, pure white liner. Use this for lining the lower rim. Makes my eyes look wider, brighter, and more awake. :D
Highlighters -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish in Lightscapade
LizC21 10/29/2007 10:17:00 PM
Wish this was permanent! A mix of soft, pastel pink, lavender, blue, green and yellow! So gorgeous in the container, but amazing on skin. Gives this amazing soft glow. I can't explain just how much I love this!!
Smooth. Smells good. Gives my face a radiant glow. I use this UNDER makeup. Wakes my skin up and makes me look luminous from within, not sparkly or overly shimmer. I try not to use this with too many other shimmer products on the face because I don't want shimmer/sparkle/glow/glitter overload haha. DO NOT use under Hyper Real...too much sparkle lol. :D Also, this IMO does not moisturize...I still use a moisturizer with this because alone this makes my skin dry. I was told that this would make me too oily, but it does the exact opposite lol.
Feels great on the skin. Smells nice. Gives the skin added moisture. Gives my face a smoother appearance. Love to spritz this on top of Studio Fix, over finished makeup, and to spray on my blush brush when using blush. This helps makeup melt into the skin better, I find, anyway.
I used to use MAC foundations, but didn't love the fact that I always looked super light in pictures when wearing them and that I broke out when wearing them. Also, NC had too much yellow and NW had too much pink, so I never would get a perfect match. I wanted to try a lighter liquid foundation with sheer/medium coverage. I like the coverage and the texture is nice...I also like the fact that the shade I use blends perfectly, so I look natural, not like someone who can't match foundation haha. However, I find this turns super greasy on my face after a few hours. YUCK!
I bought this in Deep Black...makes my lashes super dark, a little longer, and super thick...makes me look like I have a ton more lashes than normal! I am ALWAYS on the hunt for the perfect mascara...this and Diorshow come close! Both are the same price...$23.00. I hate spending that much for mascara since I like to replace tubes every three months, but both are the best mascaras I've tried. I like the Diorshow brush better though. Haha...I like how sometimes I make my review 2 in 1. :D
Sheer black gel with micro silver sparkles...sparkling diamond top coat. Cute to wear for some sparkle when going out. Unfortunately, I hate the brush and extra-liquid gel texture. Makes the mascara get clumped if this isn't applied perfectly...rar! Although, the application is better with a different brush...which is what I use. Just annoying to have to work this much with it!
Lip Gloss -Chanel - Pin Up Glossimer [DISCONTINUED]
LizC21 10/29/2007 9:29:00 PM
Another gorgeous nude lip color! Love the smooth, creamy texture of Glossimers! I noticed this shade a few days ago on my friend and asked what it was, so went out and bought it because it looked like a perfect shade for me! She had this in the Les Soleils set which has the most adorable box ever haha, but I wasn't going to pay $50.00 just because I thought the box was cute! I might get the other set, Les Roses, though! Pin Up is a sexy beige peach nude gloss with gold shimmer. Gorgeous! Loved the name, too. Couldn't resist this gloss!
Lip Treatments -Soap and Glory - Sexy Motherpucker Lip Gloss

Rarely do I ever pick up cheaper glosses, but my friend came over one evening to hang out after she did some errands and had this cute little gloss with her when she showed up. We were in the car driving after dinner and I was like "LET'S GO TO TARGET! I WANT THAT GLOSS!" Haha. Yes, I bought this mainly as a novelty item...cute name and cute packaging. I didn't want the clear, but I didn't want to get the three pack either, but luckily someone had switched a clear with the pink shade, so I picked up that one lolll. The pink shade is called What a Melon. Sheer melon pink...almost clear. Smells almost chocolate-coco ish haha. Pretty smooth gloss on, too. Don't like the fact that the sting lasts quit a long time on me...almost 30 minutes when most plumping glosses fade in only a few minutes, Wouldn't purchase again because I prefer my MAC, Chanel, and Dior glosses!
Fragrances -Giorgio Armani - Armani Code for women
LizC21 10/29/2007 9:07:00 PM
This perfume smells SO yummy! A little floral, sweet, and spicy all mixed into one. Sephora classifies this as a floral oriental...I would agree with that. Blood Orange, Ginger, Pear Sorbet, Sambac Jasmine, Orange Blossom, Seringa Flower, Lavender Honey, Precious Woods Complex, and Vanilla notes. I smell the orange, jasmine, woodyness, and Vanilla mostly in this when I wear it. A very warm and inviting fragrance. Love to wear in the cooler months...especially in fall! The men definitely seem to love this when I wear it. The bottle is gorgeous, too!
This gloss is GORGEOUS! I think this might have been limited or discontinued because I can't find it now! BOO! I was looking through makeup pictures on here the other day and saw this beautiful gloss and was in love. Couldn't find it on the site and called the Dillard's that has a Chanel counter closest to me and said they didn't have it! I AM SO BUMMED. I asked a friend if she had it since she has a few Chanel glosses and she did. Tried it on and it made me even more sad that I could find it haha. Perfect nude, sexy, shimmering gloss!Soft peachish pinkish beige with shimmer. Chanel's Glossimer texture is nice and smoothing, too! If you can get your hands on this, DO!
Scrubs -Victoria's Secret - Stimulating Body Scrub - Love Spell

Love this sweet smelling sugar scrub! Makes my skin super soft! Wish this was sold in Endless Love, though!
Bath Treatments -Victoria's Secret - Love Spell Indulgent Bath Bubbles
LizC21 10/29/2007 7:46:00 PM
Love bubble baths and love Victoria's Secret Bubble Bath because it smells delicious. I don't like Love Spell as a lotion because it's too sweet to wear for long periods of time, but I think the bubble bath smells great! Wish it was sold in Endless Love, though! Gave the tub a luxurious amount of foamy, soft, delicious scented bubbles!
Lotions/ Creams -Victoria's Secret - Strawberries and Champagne
LizC21 10/29/2007 7:42:00 PM
Hate the smell. I wish this had more strawberry scent than champagne lol. I smell like I just got drunk and spilled the alcohol all over myself! I gave this a 2 because I love how silky and moisturizing Victoria's Secret creams/lotions are; also, I have the "All that Shimmers" shimmer body lotion of this from the holiday season a coule years ago or whenever it came out...I like the gold sparkle that it has, but it is too much for all the time. Good, but not great and would not buy again unless in a different scent...and maybe smaller sparkle particles!
Lotions/ Creams -Victoria's Secret - Endless Love Hand and Body Cream
LizC21 10/29/2007 7:33:00 PM
Endless Love was the 2nd scent from Victoria's Secret that I tried and it's the one I have liked the most. The scent is Apple Blossom, Honeydew, and Ylang Ylang. Light sweet, soft fresh smell. My brother was the one who picked this out for me for my birthday a few years ago. He liked it because it wasn't overpowering which is also why I like it! This lotion is so silky and moisturizing!
