Lipstick -Revlon - Colorburst Lip Butter in Fig Jam

I had to go to Walmart to get this, my CVS stores don't carry it yet :( It was worth it though! I can't stop looking at my lips, this shade just makes them so pretty! A nice transparent brown/red color. No taste, smell is good. All around A+ for me!
Gorgeous color that flashes pink, copper and gold. DC, can't find a dupe :( All that I have is a mini bottle! This is gorgeous over OPI Suzi Sells Sushi!
I came upon this at Big Lots and thought that it might help the dry spots on my face in the wintertime. Boy does it! It works better than any lotion, and it's sooo handy to use and to carry! I've not seen this in regular retail outlets, but if I do see it again I'll definitely get another as a backup!
I just love this scent! So sweet and yet with a hint of spice. I just saw what people are asking for it on ebay and it made me wish that I DIDN'T like it so much because I'd SELL it lol! Shame it's DC, it's a fun, girly kind of fragrance that is a great pick me up :)
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - 8-pan Palette "Comfort Zone"

Dirt Cheap, gorgeous colors... the only problem that I find with it is that it seems very fragile, both in packaging and in terms of the shadows themselves. I'd love to depot them but I'm afraid to try! Every drugstore that I've seen these in had at least one of them broken in the package, so I'm VERY cautious with this. This is definitely a steal at $4.99 and I would absolutely repurchase if I ran out.
So far everyone to review this has had brown eyes. Mine are blue, so I was a little concerned that I wouldn't be happy with the colors but I couldn't have been more wrong! The grey/purple shade makes a great liner and crease shade and all of the pinks are very wearable. I would definitely repurchase :)

I was skeptical at first, but this stuff is GREAT! I mean yeah, it could stand to be a tad creamier. With the metallic flecks though, I doubt that is possible. So it's on the drier side but the color is fantastic. DIRT cheap, at $3.00 (don't buy this stuff on ebay! There's an ad to the right of this selling it on ebay for $6! It's $3 at Target or on their website which is eyeslipsface dot com). It's unique in color and has great staying power. Give this a try, it's one of the few drugstore items that actually performs as well as the higher end brands!
If you are familiar with Dichroic glass then that is a perfect description for what this looks like on your nails. The flakes have depth and shine and oh my, the colors in them! I might snag a second bottle of this before it is gone. It's THAT cool!

Had to run out and buy this when I heard that the lid color was a great dupe for Stila's Kitten. I am VERY surprised... shocked really... at the great pigmentation of these shadows! I'll definitely try a couple of the other ones now, as I usually pass by WnW without a glance. Nice job Wnw!!!
Lipstick -Clinique - Different Lipstick - Surprise

A gorgeous shade that is definitely a surprise! In the tube it looks very bronze and dark, but on the lips it is more of a raspberry with bronze overtones. Gorgeous!
I purchased this from HauteLook.com for an INSANE $9.80. Seriously? Who would turn that down? Not I! I would have given it a better score on packaging except that the shadows are SO tiny that it's very difficult to get ahold of them with a brush. I love the idea, and the shadows are nice. No talc in sight, I noticed :) The lip colors are all very sheer, so they won't really last but they feel nice on. Honestly, I'll probably depot the entire collection and stick it in a magnetic base so that everything is easier to access. Update: the pans are aluminum, so if you plan to depot you'll need magnets.
Lipstick -Stila - High Shine in Electra [DISCONTINUED]

I came so close to skipping this product because as others have said, it looks pretty dark and grapey in the tube. It was, however, super cheap at Marshall's so I took the gamble. So glad that I did, because it is gorgeous! Smooth, lip color enhancing berry with a slight brown-y undertone. I LOVE the tube itself too. Nice brushed metal looking tube with a "click" when you close it. Pretty swirls on the inside of the tube. It's a shame that they discontinued it. If you get the chance to swap for it, take it! Although it's hard to imagine someone swapping this away lol ;)
I got the Glamour Girl quad during a BOGO Free sale on the Ulta website. The shades are good for a smokey eye, but they are all VERY similar (except for the matte black of course). I would buy one of these again, but only with the BOGO sale. $12.99 is a little much for these. As for quality, I would say that they aren't bad. They wear pretty well. I guess my biggest disappointment is just that the colors are SO similar. The lightest color looks lighter on the website than it does in person. Update: After having used this several times I have to say that I'm more pleased with the quality than I was at first. The staying power is much greater with my UDPP.
Lip Gloss -Lola Cosmetics - Lip Indulgence in ASIAN PEAR

The other reviews for this are right on. It really feels GOOD on my lips. Not sticky, not slippery... sort of emollient and balmy I think. The color is just gorgeous... a dark sort of berry color. It is translucent when you put it on, so it really enhances the color of your lips rather than covering them. I got this at a discount site for $4.99 (I know, right? Who could resist trying it for that price?) and it is now my favorite gloss. Believe me, that says a LOT because I'm a gloss-o-holic lol.
Lipstick -Jane Iredale - PureMoist LipColour SPF 18 in Brett

There is nothing about this lipstick that I don't love! Perfect for every day use as well as night wear (very buildable color!). Buttery, smooth, not too glossy OR too matte. Just plain beautiful.
