I love this eyeshadow, it is so beautiful. The color is like a teddy-bear-brown color with a little bit of sparkle and it has a lot of depth to it, it can look a little plummy and gray. It's very expensive looking and at almost $30 for just one color it is. It's very flattering on my brown eyes and looks like it would be amazing on green eyes, too. Very pigmented and surprisingly lasts for many hours even without primer. Looks good as an eyeliner, too.
Primer/ Corrector -Yves Saint Laurent - Touche Eclat (Radiant Touch)

This product is horrible. It didn't conceal at all on my dark circles, not even a tiny bit of a difference, and supposedly it's more of a highlighter but even as a highlighter it didn't do anything. I have light skin so even a little makeup looks like a lot on me but this made no difference in my appearance. Maybe this works on darker skinned women, idk. I gave it two lippies because the idea of this product is good and at least it wasn't cakey and the packaging is beautiful.
Shampoo -TiGi - Bed Head Moisture Maniac Shampoo & Conditioner

This shampoo and conditioner is super moisturizing and smells good. I haven't tried too many high end shampoos and conditioners but I have tried a lot of the drugstore and this is the best. After six months of use they have really improved my hair (straw dry before). And they are on the affordable side and easy to find. Plus they last a long time because of how concentrated they are.
Foundations -Make Up For Ever - HD High Definition Foundation
LucySam 7/16/2012 5:35:00 PM
This is a surprisingly good foundation. I was using a very full coverage foundation (Estee Lauder doublewear) for a few years but found it to be cakey and heavy. I've been using this one for several months now and it's amazing. It matches my skin and sinks in perfectly and the coverage is great. It covers a couple of moles I have on my face and all the redness and dark cirles without being heavy.
I love this lip gloss! At first I was afraid this color was a little too pink, but it's a perfect rosy shade with no brown. I'm picky about the colors of my lip products and it's hard to find one that is not too brown or too maroonish but this is my new HD lip gloss. Plus it lasts for many hours and it can be applied lightly or full on super glossy and it perks up my face.
Primer/ Corrector -NARS - Pore Refining Primer - Oil Free

I got a sample of this at Sephora and have been using it for the past 3 weeks and love it. It keeps my makeup on looking fresh for many hours and feels good when I put it on. I have sensitive skin and this product glides on feeling cool without an old lady scent and doesn't clog my face. It sinks in nicely and I had forgotten it is called pore refining. I guess it does make my nose look poreless, but I still get a little shiny after a few hours, but not as much as without it.
Mascara -Chanel - Inimitable Mascara Multi-Dimensionnel (Waterproof Version)

This mascara makes my already long eyelashes look very dramatic. It separates nicely and is glossy black. People always compliment my eyes when I wear this mascara. It's super waterproof and I need that because I have watery eyes and this doesn't budge. The only bad thing about this is that it dries up in 3 weeks so it seems like I'm always having to replace it at the Chanel counter, but all mascaras dry up fast, so this is perfect. I keep going back to this one.
Lipstick -Yves Saint Laurent - Rouge Volupte Lipstick in #003 Ultimate Beige
LucySam 12/26/2011 1:50:00 AM
This is a really beautiful color, it's like a rosy-maroon color. It's really flattering on all of my makeup looks and goes with everything. The packaging is to-die-for gorgeous. The only bad thing about this lipstick is the lasting power isn't long. It only stays on for an hour or so, but it's still worth buying and is my favorite out of all my lipsticks.
Treatments -Frederic Fekkai - Hair Mask with Shea Butter
LucySam 12/26/2011 1:27:00 AM
I can't believe the bad reviews on this. This hair mask is amazing and smells so good, I even love the texture. It reminds me of the beach. It makes my hair super soft with a lot of volume. I think people are just complaining because they want it to be free. I found mine at Marshall's for $10, but I'll definitely keep buying it again and again for full price.
