I bought this without swatching first and was very pleased with the beautiful and natural look this blush gave me!! I use the 187 or 131 to apply it and combine it with Sunny By Nature MSF for a soft and glowing look. Early Morning is matte (no sparkles or glitter!) with a slight sheen. It's perfect for a no makeup/natural look or when you want to rock bright lips and keep everything else subdued. NC45
After reading all of the great reviews and getting the thumbs up from my MAC counter manager, I finally decided to buy this Cleanse Off Oil after I had ran out of my usual HG Purity Made Simple face wash. I was a little hesitant at first because I was thinking that my somewhat oily skin would break out like crazy if I used oil to clean my face and I believe that this is one of the best purchases I've made ALL YEAR!!! I use 2-3 pumps and rub the oil onto my dry face and massage the oil for about 30 seconds or more and then apply a little bit of water on my hands and then rub my face with wet hands which helps to emulsify the oil turning it white. Rinse and pat dry and your skin will be soft and makeup free. I love the scent and it gets my face clean without stripping it. I haven't had any problems with this cleanser for the time being and will definetely repurchase it when I run out! HG status!
Blush -Wet 'n' Wild - Color Icon Blush - Berry Shimmer

I went and bought this blush after reading the rave reviews for it and I am LOVING this blush!! It's a beautiful berry with slight gold shimmers in it. It is EXTREMELY pigmented and you can easily look like Bozo the clown if you apply this with a heavy hand. One swipe in the pan should suffice. I use a kabuki to blend it out and it gives my NC45 tone a beautiful flushed look. Oh and I also love that it's only $2.99!!! You can't beat that!!

I use this at night and sometimes in the morning but this is a wonderful makeup remover and I love how it scrubs my skin without being overly harsh. My skin looks better and my pores do look smaller. :) The smell is ok but I'd prefer if it was unscented. Other than that, I would definitely buy this again if Target replenishes their supply.
I bought this at my local Target and it was last one on the shelf! I love how this smells!! It's sexy, grown and girly all in one. I love to spray this on throughout the day, even before I go to bed! LOL
I have been wearing this paint pot every day since I got it!! I seriously LOVE this!! I use UDPP under it and it lasts all day!! The coral color goes beautifully with purples, pinks, corals, greys, browns, bronzes, golds, and greens!! I'm sure that there's other colors but this is what I've used it with so far. MAC PLEASE ADD THIS TO THE PERMANENT LIST!!!!!!!! If you don't have this, go and get it!! I'm NC45 and this is the bees knees for our skintone!!! I had to track this baby down to get it but is was well worth it!

I've passed by this brush sooo many times when I was at Target!! Although I've been wanted to try it out, the MAC snob in me just wouldn't. I really wanted to get the 224 but did not want to spend $28 on it. But after seeing and reading a couple of reviews about this brush, I decided to get it. It was only about $6 so what the hell. Well, I'm glad I decided to get it!! It's so soft and blends my eyeshadows to perfection!!! It hasn't shed or bled so I'm very happy with it so far. Eventually I'll get my 224 but for now I'm satisfied with this one. :)
Lipstick -Wet 'n' Wild - Silk Finish - #502A - Dark Pink Frost

This is MAC's Nymphette lipglass in lipstick form. I LOVE it!! Goes great with my NC45 complexion and for $0.99 you can't beat that with a bat!! I wear it with Nymphette on top and with or sometimes without a brown liner. Unfortunately my daughter liked this lipstick too and used it as a crayon so now I have to buy another one. :) LOL!
I got this and Florida!! Don't let the bright color of this blush scare you! Optimistic Orange does not go on as vibrant as it looks like in the pan. Its a much softer and natural orange/peach color and would look fabulous layered with a more peachy or orange colored blush. It doesn't have any shimmer and blends into your skin, leaving you a hint of color that you can build up. I hope MAC comes out with some more colors!! I'm oily sometimes in the cheek area and this blush does not cause me to break out or become more greasy looking. Great stuff!!
I just got this beauty powder blush because of the white compact. I didn't really care for the birds or design. LOL! But the powder itself is really beautiful and gives my NC45 skin a very nice, sheer highlight that is perfect for spring and the upcoming summer!!
I tried this perfume on when I went to Macy's and boy, is it strong and sweet!!! If it wasn't soooo strong and sweet it would be nice but even after letting it dry down, it was still very strong! Its like diabetes in a spray bottle!! Be careful wearing this because you can give people headaches with this perfume!!! I will NOT be buying this!!
This product is great for my hair and I like how it's made with olive oil and not filled with chemicals and names that I can barely pronounce. I use this along with a little bit of Magic 8 Oil and my frizzy, dry hair is transformed to soft, silky goodness! It doesn't hurt that this stuff is cheap too!
This was my first Dazzleglass purchase! When I swatched this on my hand, I immediately fell in love!! I liked how it looked online but to see it in person is AMAZING! It's a pale pink with different colored reflects in it. It is super pretty and very festive!! This would look great over pink lipsticks and also looks fab all by itself!
Well this polish is a super pretty glitter black purple but when you apply it, it's black with no shimmer. In the light you can see the purple reflect but other than that it's black. I only needed to apply 2 coats and got great coverage. Removing this polish is a bi*ch so please have a great polish remover and plenty of cotton pads. I wouldn't buy this again since I think I could find something like this for cheaper.
This should be in everyones makeup bag/kit/palette!! This is a great highlighter and I like to use this when I wear green or grey eyeshadows on my lid. Its a frost so it can be obvious on some skintones.
