I caved in and bought this, and take it from someone frugal like me..this is definitely worth trying! If you hate it, you can always return it! But I think everyone who is on the fence about this should buy it! The packaging is so sleek, 1 oz. worth of product which is normal, love the smell..smells like MAC :) the coverage is amazing...especially if you dont have much to cover up..you wont even need concealer! Wide rang of colors to choose from, and overall I think this completes a makeup collection. It's just one of those foundation you have to try!
Due to it being winter I am pretty light right now (NC20) and I can not get into this lipstick. I do not see what the big deal is about it. The color is a mauve/pink type color that comes out with more of a purple tone, the smell is HORRIBLE! I am talking instant headache! But it does seem to last pretty well, however you need to apply a lot to get the color to show up. As of right now I wouldnt repurchase this but who knows, maybe in summer when I am more tan this will look better?? For now...its a thumbs down!
Blush -Wet 'n' Wild - Color Icon Blush 831E Pearlescent Pink

At first I could not stand this blush, I just thought it was so cheap! (I am a MAC snob when it comes to blushes, I read the pigmentation of this was comparable to MAC's so decided to purchase) However I have just recently started to use this blush and I am finding that I really like the way it looks! My skin is much more fair than it used to be (NC20) and this blush looks amazing on it! When I was more tan I felt like it made me look like I had just run a marathon, but on girls with lighter skin I really do recomment giving this blush a try! For the price you can't beat it! It is very pigmented, has some shimmer, and has a generous amount of blush as well! The color is definitely more of a coral pink than a pearlescent pink but nevertheless it's very pretty!

This was DISGUSTING! the colors were ok, BUT... this made my skin completely oily! I didn't read about anyone complaining about this making their skin oily but I know I can't be alone. It literally looked like you could ice skate across my face it was so shiny and disgusting, and I know it was this foundation because when I switched I was ok. I will never use/buy/try this again...so disapointed!!
This would by stashed in my "Glosses I can't be without" bag set to go incase there ever was a fire! I LOVE this gloss! it is so gorgeous, its genious! So it looks dark and a bit intimidating on the outside, like a color that just would not flatter..but boy does it! This is a classic.."dont judge a gloss by its tube" type of deal. It is a LIGHT violet color that gives your lips the nicest sheen and makes like light up from a mile away! It does not have a funny smell, is gorgeous, can be worn alone or you with a nude gloss to give you the ultimate look! It has shimmer but not to the point where its over the top. I will probably buy 5 more of these incase they ever discontinue them. I would suggest everyone to try this, because it's one of those that just totally transforms when put on your lips. A definite winner!

Ok, I am extremely picky when it comes to lipglosses and usually do not like drug store ones because some just dont stay, or have really strong scents! So I was hesitant to try this (it came as a sample with a purchase I made online) however I am glad I did because the color is absolutely gorgeous! It's a light nude pearl type color that goes on extremely smooth and is not too sticky! I was hooked! The only thing i do not care for is the fruity scent, why couldnt they have made it smell like vanilla :( but it is gorgeous and easy to wear, a beautiful nude pink, and definitely worth a try if youre a pink gloss lover! I am now going to go on a hunt to find the full size one and can't wait to add this to my collection! Beautiful color!
Well I do have to say, after reading your reviews I was on the fence about getting this but I figured why not?! True it is drying, and I truly believe this would be a very hard color to pull off with just the lipstick by itself because it is so light! On MAC's website it is described as a "light yellow gold" and that is pretty much what it is! However, I would personally emphasize the "light" part! It is very sheer and has lots of sparkles in it. It is also a bit grainy. I feel that mixed with a fab. lipstick and with a gloss blended in this will do just fine, but I would be careful in just wearing this with a clear gloss because I can definitely see this making someone look like a corpse! However paired with the right shade, this has amazing potential!
I am MAD about madly creative! & in a good way =) it is a beautiful frost that is a rosey-pink, however it goes on pretty nude with a light hand and because of how frosty it is it gives you a great shimmer! I've noticed the more I layer it the more muave it gets, so it goes from being nude to muave yet either way it looks amazing! I am so happy I found this color! I absolutely adore it! It did not dry out my lips, the color seemed to stay for a while and I did receive a lot of compliments on it! So if you're looking for a new rosey/nude frost lipstick go for it!
Looking for spider legs as bottom lashes? Then try this mascara! For the top lashes i usually always have to layer with this mascara however, for my bottom lashes this gives the best effect. I have pretty decently lengthed bottom lashes but this mascara makes them look so long and thick! I know its supposed to be a thickening mascara but it does help with adding length. I would say give it a try! Every mascara works differently on everyone but for me this one had great benefits :)

I really liek this mascara for covering blemishes and even using it as a primer on my eyelids when I'm on the run! However, as a concealer for under the eyes i have a problem with this because it seems to run and add major creases! No one wants to get half through their day, look in a mirror and notice "GASPS" major creases! It's just horrible. However for the face, it does a great job at concealing, blends easily, and ( i use the medium) seems to stay put all day! So as a face concealer yes, for under the eyes..look else where!
Bronzers -Physicians Formula - Pearls of Perfection Multi-Colored Bronzer

NO! I would not buy this again unless i wanted to give myself a major headache! I just hated this! First of all it did a horrible job at doing its job, bronzing! Secondly, those little pearls get everywhere! If they are not flying out of the container they are sticking to the inside of the brush! It's time consuming and very annoying. The color it does give you is extremely light and the pearls really aren't very pigmented. For someone who lives to be bronzed, this didn't do it for me at all.
Blaghh, I personally feel that if you have MAC's margin, sunbasque, or peachtwist...this really isn't a MUST HAVE! It is very similar to those blushes except this did not have the WOW factor for me. An everyday eh blush. Some bits of shimmer, very peachy/orangey..by the end of the day I thought it made me look splotchy and red. Could have been that I was just having an off day but I most likely will not be repurchasing this blush and definitely can live without it, but it's nice to try new things, sadly this one just didnt work out!
YES! I would buy this product again, it's a must try ladies. If you like bananas, then you will love the smell cause it is right on and the color is great too! It looks like a caramel type glaze however when put on it gives a great nude lip! The only thing I don't like is that its one of those clicker lip glosses, I hate waiting for the gloss to come up because it takes forever and barely any comes out unless you crank it which I dont like doing cause then that wastes a bunch! However, the gloss itself is fabulous, not overly stick, and definitely worth the try, even at its steep price.
This mascara is the absolute worst. How this works for anyone I have no idea. It does nothing for my lashes, and mine are a pretty good length so even with the worst mascaras there is some kind of affect but this does nothing! It is a waste of money and time! Cheap, cheap, dirt cheap!
This is one of those "everyday" eyeshadows. I know some of you may be thinking "black?!" as everyday but it actually doesn't go on as dark as it looks. I find myself having to layer this when I'm doing a smokey eye. What helps is if i get my brush damp before I apply it because this does have a tendancy to fade. However i love a dramatic eye and because I can build this to the effect I like I'm giving it a good rating. I would probably buy it again however for a more dramatic effect, go with black tied!
