I don't know what to think of this particular lipstick. It is a great nude colour that immediately caught my eye while viewing the Lingerie collection, but it's just not special enough! It would work with various looks & is quite sexy but i have 2 or 3 lipsticks that are identical to this colour. I naturally blame myself coz i'm a sucker for nude shades but i just don't need another shade like this one. Its has a hint of beige & mauve but i just don't see any pink or golden at all. I probably wouldn't purchase because every other cosmetics line offers similar, if not identical, shades to this lipstick.
Loved this lipliner! It's a warm nude colour that would match most lipsticks from the warm/nude family. Very smooth & silky to apply & gives great definition to the lips. Very glad i purchased it =)
Highlighters -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish - Naked You

In my opinion i think 'Naked you' is a beautiful highlighter which can be used for several things. It can be used instead of a blush or even as a bronzer for paler skins. I did notice the silver glitter which other members have mentioned, which i personally think is kinda exaggerated in this particular shade. But i also do think it just makes it differenciated than all the other highlighters out there. My only concern is that the colour on me, turns slighty orangish if i try to put on several strokes. I dunno why i seem to have this problem with most bronze blushers or bronzers in general. Having mentioned that, it still is a beautiful colour and would add glitz to any look instantly. Finally, i think MAC should consider adding in a little mirror with the compact. It would save a lot of space in my bag & the effort of pulling one out whenever i need to re-apply!
I have a love/hate relationship with this lipstick. On some days i pair it with smoky eyes & it looks fine, but on other days paired with natural eyes, it makes me look kinda sick. The colour is difficult to pull off without a lipliner, so i have to pair it with a nude lipliner everytime i use it. Generally, i use lip liners with most lipsticks i use so thats not a problem. It's very matte & can give the lips an appearance of visible cracked lines. Not a good look! My friend wears it & it looks so sexy on her, dunno why it's harder for me to wear. It just sits on my makeup desk nowadays, i even forget about it sometimes. I wouldn't purchase again, i already have one to last me for the reast of my life!!
I love this lipgloss! I bought it while on vacation in London, & i wore it all the time! It looks so coralish in the tube but actually quite neutral on your lips. The shine is so wonderful, weather alone or under any lipstick. The colour itself suits any skin tone. I repurchased another tube because this brand is not available back at home. I would definately recommend this to anyone.
I'm also wondering about the bad reviews about this perfume. Its absolutely fabulous. I was a bit hesitant to purchase it in the beginning as i'm a person who gets bored of certain perfumes very quickly! Fortunately though i decided to splurdge on it and i'm sooo glad i did =) This perfume is kinda strong but very fruity and i detect a bit of apple and mango mixture in this fruity scent. Very feminine and stays on for a long time which is great as it is expensive. My clothes have stayed smelling great for days, maybe even more than a week after spraying it on only once. Definately a great buy and its one of my favourite summer scents. I will purchase again!
This perfume is awful! I sprayed it on my wrist thinking i could smell the dry down & decide weather to buy or not. BIG MISTAKE! i ended up with the worst headache ever.. it was just shocking to me that Paris Hilton would put her name on such a cheap smelling fragrance like this one. Even the saleswoman told me most people didn't like it & others bought it just for the name. I would never purchase. Btw, the packaging is so cheap & tacky too.

I love this blush. It gives me that baby doll look! I have a medium skin tone and this blush looks like a very soft pink on me, not clownish. I love the packaging too, so cute & can fit easily into my small handbags. I would purchase it again.
Highlighters -Bobbi Brown - Pink Shimmerbrick Shimmer Brick

I heard so much about these shimmerbricks and have wanted to try them out for a while now. I was kinda confused between the 3 colours available but i had so many bronzing shimmery powders so i thought about trying out the pink one for a change. The packaging is elegant but is a little too big, i would have preferred it to be more compact. The shimmer in this one is looks more like a silver sheen on the face, which doesnt look bad on me but still doesn't exactly flatter me. Maybe it would suit paler complexions more. I don't reach for it that often but i'm thinking about trying out the beige one. Having read the good reviews about it here, i think it would be perfect for my skintone. I would purchase shimmerbricks again but not in this shade.

I really like this lipgloss. The texture is gel like and feels very comfortable on the lips. It gives a very shiny finish without the stickiness that is found with most other brands. I find that this particular colour doesn't flatter me so much without lipstick underneath, it just looks too brown on my medium skin. I wear it above Chanel's aqualumiere liptick in Antiqua and it balances out the colour. looks just perfect =) I would definately purchase it again.
I totally love this compact powder. I usually have a lot of trouble finding the perfect powder that doesn't look to cakey on my face which most powders look like on me. This one is absolutely gorgeous! It is extremely fine so it doesn't look like you have a mask on your face after applying it. It also smells great and stays put for a long time without fading or changing colour. Can be drying at times but i use a gel like moisturizing lotion before applying it. Packaging is beautiful too but i would prefer the compact to be a little smaller. I would definately repurchase!
I originally bought this lipstick so that i mix it with MAC's Pink Noveau lipstick, they look absolutely lovely together. they give a unique pink colour that plumps up lips and is totally stunning on medium skin tones. The only problem that has discouraged me from using them lately is that they are extra drying on my lips which i cannot stand!! other than that they are a perfect combo!
