Eye Shadow -E.L.F. - Studio Single Eyeshadow Coffee Bean

I found this last week at The DollarTree. I was looking for a nice brown shade to fill in my brows. I saw the shimmer and still said I'd give it a try for the price. So glad I did! It's a really shimmery facade on top of the product for effect but it is not 1/2 as shimmery as it looks in the package; I just wiped it away. I ♥ it for my brows and as it says on the package to just, "layer the color to achieve the desired intensity." Great stuff!
I picked up Hazelnut at the CVS 75% Fall/Winter clearance sale about a month ago. I'm wearing it today with the NYX lip liner in Toast (MAC Cork dupe), which is an exact match for this lip color! Also, added a touch of Wet n Wild’s Speed Gloss in Frenzied (gold/green duo-chrome). Love the combo... The texture smooth and feels like Chapstick on the lips and the color is a smokey medium brown (on me). I can see how this could be MLBB on darker skin tones - just lovely. I sincerely hope that this is not being discontinued; that would be a shame.
Lotions/ Creams -Barielle - Professional Protective Hand Cream

Just picked up two of these at TJ Maxx and am so glad I did. I keep one at home and one at my work desk. The reviewer below describe it very well and it also has a great scent. Will definitely keep my eye out at for back-ups. :)
I am a very tan (i.e. Revlon in Rich Tan or HD Ginger) and this color is awesome on my for a neutral pink moisturized look. This is a color that you can wear alone, with or without liner and gloss. Or glam it up and wear all three for a gorgeous lip! I was fortunate enough for one of my friends to give this to me because she's a red head and doesn't like the way pinks look on her. Well, I love the way pinks look on me and am glad to have California Dreamin', especially since I was born, raised and still live in Cali! :)
I think it's LOVE! From Orly's Spring 2011 Precious Collection, Royal Velvet is the quintessential blurple... With flashes of blue, purple and deep magenta, Royal Velvet is a duo-chrome that must be purchased, owned and worn to truly appreciate. Enjoy ladies. :)
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - Color Icon Palette - Greed [DISCONTINUED]

I'm just getting into WnW eye shadows and find myself reaching for this palette the most. It is a neutral collection of mattes and shimmer shades that can go from night to day - work or play. These are very pigmented so use a light hand when applying and build the color up. Goes well with nude lip (i.e. NYX Smokey Look lip gloss)...
Wow, is all I can say about this color. A milky nude peach that balances a dark eye to perfection. It couldn't have a better name. The price is right, the quality is excellent and the color is out of this world - seductive and innocent, at the same time. :)
Lychee Luxe is my all-time favorite MAC lip gloss. I keep coming back for more! I gravitate towards peachy corals and this one has awesome color pay-off. You will not be disappointed. :)
Top/Base Coats -Sally Hansen - NailShine Miracle 10 Day Top Coat
PenelopePitstopKYD 1/30/2011 11:18:00 PM
Found this at CVS for 75% off!!! I said, "Let's give it a try!" So glad I did... I was having trouble getting a blackened charcoal glitter (Milani Silver Dazzle) to shine so I put this on and then applied quick dry and now I have spectacularly shiny nails. (see pic above)
I love the powdery sweet fragrance but why is there was no cap that comes with this perfume? After purchasing I read the reviews and looked at the pictures and was like, "say what?" There is no cap/top/lid, whatever you want to call it - IT'S NOT THERE!!! However, it does come with an atomizer clip so that it won' spray during travel. Make sure to hold on to this because I could see this being thrown out easily. Needless to say once I realized this I was thoroughly disappointed. The fragrance itself is great, though. HTH
Application: Revlon's Hint of Ruby Blush is gorgeous! It's a very deep ruby with golden undertones and applies like a dream. For me, since I'm very tan, I didn't have a problem with it being to too much. Gives me a radiant glow. Price: This product was included in a Limited Edition holiday collection about five years ago and I recently acquired it in a swap. So glad I did! Overall: 5 lippies for the extreme gorgeousness of this blush!

Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - St. John for Marie Gray
PenelopePitstopKYD 12/8/2010 11:33:00 AM
Product Description: Launched by the design house of St John in 1994, ST JOHN PERFUME is classified as a luxurious, oriental, floral fragrance. This feminine scent possesses a blend of flowers of the orient combined with honeysuckle, jasmine and gardenia, with lower notes of amber, apricot, sandalwood and musk. It is recommended for romantic wear. ST. JOHN Perfume by Marie Gray for women. My Thoughts: As this product is discontinued, it is rare find! I love all exotic oriental fragrances with Sandalwood and this one fits the bill. Definitely a mature scent for the brave at heart. This was a gift to me from my boss after her mother passed and was one of her mother's signature fragrances. I am glad to now have a piece of history.
Polishes -Sally Hansen - HD Hi-Definition Nail Color

I love this nail polish in the shade Spectrum. Two coats for opaque coverage and three for WOW! Renewed my love for turquoise and all that glitters... (see pic below) http://img.makeupalley.com/6/3/0/2/1664255.JPG
Absolutely love this top coat! It's as good as if not better than the Nfu flakies and for a fraction of the cost (that is, if you can find them). I received this in a swap and am currently wearing it to freshen up my OPI MPJ mani that's close to a week old. IT TOTALLY TRANSFORMS YOUR POLISH. Anyway, I'd like to collect all Colorama flakies, eventually, but this one is great for starters.
