I LOVE this product! I received it in a swap, and I was sooo excited because this is my first makeup product from the UK. Sugar May is a peachy nude kind of color. I have fair skin (I'm between MAC NC15 and NC20) and on me it just kind of mutes out my lips a little and makes them look smooth and just..lovely. The consistency is very SLEEK (see what I did there) and I find when it wears off it leaves your lips smooth and soft. You get ten grams of product, which in my opinion is good. I really like the scent. This is totally random but it reminds me of these scented dolls I used to play with when I was little that you could flip their dresses over and put these hats on their heads and turn them into cupcakes...I love these things! :)
I like- but don't love this foundation. The shade Vanilla is a great match for my skin at the moment, which is somewhere between a MAC NC15-NC20. It does have shimmer but my bottle doesn't have a crazy amount, just enough that it makes me glowy- which I like. I've worn it twice and it wore well- at least 8 hours- each time. The first time I wore it with moisturizer and it applied like a dream and didn't emphasize any dry patches. I was in a hurry the second time and just threw it on without moisturizer before and it was hard to blend and showed every little dry spot, so as with most foundations DEFINETLY use moisturizer. Even if you have oily skin (I have combo-oily skin.).
Love. Thats one word to describe this blush. LOVE. I own this in the shade Brazilian Rose which has a peachy pink base, a golden apricot center, and cranberryish/fuchsiaish and plummy wine colored petals. Every shade has a different type of shimmer. The base has a finely milled shimmer and more of a sheen almost highlighter type affect. The center has the same affect. The petals are a bit more frosted. when swirled together, Brazilian Rose becomes an almost too gorgeous for words cranberry/coral with a gold/pink sheen too it. When used super lightly it gives the most gorgeous summer goldeny glow. The packaging is pretty flimsy and cheap so I would recommend depotting it, but it doesn't bother me considering I only payed $2.49 cents for the product.
Okay, heres the deal. I bought this concealer when I saw it on 75 percent off at CVS and I had high hopes because one of my top beauty gurus on youtube, glintzy, had been raving about it. I got it in light which is an overall great match for my skin tone. Let me start off with the packaging. At first, I really liked it. It was easy and functional. Then the side with the highlight got all weird and started like over spilling and leaking and just getting everywhere where you screw it shut. Thats what needs to be fixed about the packaging. The reason why I only gave this 2 lippies is because...well, I would apply it and everything was dandy. It covered my acne, and dark circles, and all that tasty stuff. I set it with powder and it didn't cake up. Everything was peachy, until about an hour after application. When I checked my face after only about an hour or two of wear, it had completely creased- and I mean like EW. It looked patchy and cakey and all globbed up in my fine lines. My blemishes weren't even concealed anymore. The highlight, to be honest, isn't that bad. I use it as a base for my less pigmented powder highlighters. If I use an eyeshadow primer under the concealer, it doesnt crease quite as bad- just maybe after 4-5 hours of where, which I can live with. All and all its an okay product, but I will not be repurchasing.
I am also very surprised to see such horrible reviews of this product! I've tried rocker chick (dark teal and black) and stunt double (sheer purple and glittery brown) I am in love! The black and brown shades are very opaque and glide right on, the teal shade is slightly less opaque but still nice as long as you layer it. Now at first the purple seems like crap but I find it excellent as a base under my sheer purple shadows, really makes em pop without creasing. They do not dry fast but nothing setting them with a translucent powder or eyeshadow cant fix. They are extremely easy to smudge but the name is HOT SMUDGE...thats kinda the fricken point. The brush is fabulous and is all I use to apply and smudge the liner/shadows. <3
Absolutely love these shadow duos! This is my second one and so far they are consistently smooth and rich in pigmentation!
Nothin but love for this concealer! (: Fullest coverage in any concealer I have tried! Wears nicely, and matches my skin seamlessly. Definitely worth the 16 dollar price tag, because one pot lasts a while! Bought it in February and just hit pan in June (after using it daily!)! My HG concealer, and will keep repurchasing until something better comes along!
ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS LIPSTICK! its my "my lips but better" lipstick and i couldn't be happier! (: NEED MOREEE!

THIS IS BY FAR MY FAVORITE WHITE EYELINER (: I've tried so many and this is the creamiest and the most pigmented will buy forever and ever! <3
Love this polish! This is like my staple summer color. I saw it in a magazine when I was 12 and have been repurchasing it ever since then. It looks like candy on your fricken nails! :)
OH.MY.GOSH. I bought this gloss recently because bon bons stopped making my favorite gloss, sugar cookie, which was a very unique opalescent pinky greeny white. I bought grape thinking since it was a unique shade (purple) it would be the same quality. I dont know if its because bakery scents are easier to achieve or what but this smelled like bath soap or something. HORRIBLE! I will be trying the chocolate, vanilla, and other bakery-ish flavors (:
I really like this product! I recently picked this up after watching a girl around my age with the same skin tone rave about it on youtube. I am a teen, yes, but i inherit dark circles from my family. This product covers and conceals my dark circles very nicely, and actually has a cooling effect which is great for those rough mornings. I don't understand where people are getting this weird gold cast/shimmer from, because my tube is practically flat, just a little natural sheen. Maybe it varies from tube to tube.

I got this for 4 dollars at my tj maxx and will be going back for more. amazing colors and amazing lil brushes ;-)
I really liked this! The reason why i gave this product a 1 (as in dirt cheap) for price is because i got it for even cheaper then the already cheap 10 dollar price at tj maxx. I got this for 3 dollars! I was soo pumped. I dont need blush that much (awfully rosey cheeks thankyou very much) but this does give me that slight radiant glow that is so soft yet gorgeous. I use this as an eye shadow to! The reason I gave this a 4 overall though is because I'm not to fond of its mousse texture. Other then that, I love the color and its superb :-)
I got these for an excellent deal. $1.20 each! I got Madrid and Slipper. Slipper is a gorgeous champagne color thats super moisturizing and unscented, where as madrid is a to-bright-for-words color that dries out and smells like rotton eggs. I think it just depends on which one you get, i love slipper but hate madrid, Oh, and how they show a little circle of "the color" on the bottom? Yeah, thats not the color. Madrid looked like a gorgeous gold pink (kinda like nars orgasm) and slipper looked like a nude pink. when madrid is a fugly barbie pink and slipper is a peachy color!
