Moisturizers -First Aid Beauty - Ultra Repair Cream

This is my HG winter moisturizer. When the air gets cold and dry, my skin gets very dermatitis prone. This moisturizer calms my skin and gives it just enough moisture for winter. No break outs or irritation from this and I'm very breakout and dermatitis prone. I have already repurchased this. If you don't like the jar, they now have a squeeze tube version :)
I really love this cleanser and have already repurchased. It foams nicely, a little goes a long way. It calms my skin and reduces redness. I love it for winter time when my skin gets irritated easily. No breakouts or irritation and I am very breakout prone and dermatitis prone. HG winter cleanser!
Sampled this at the LUSH store when an associate at the Soho location offered to spritz my wrist. A few stores later I smelled something like bad body odor. It was my wrist. I tried to scrub it off with a makeup wipe and it wouldn't go away. Horrid :( I really like the LUST and KARMA solids
Eye Shadow -Chanel - Les 4 Ombres - 13 Beiges de Chanel Quad

This is the most amazing Chanel quad. I did the look that Temptalia did with the quad today but smoked it out a bit more with the darker colors and my boyfriend kept complimenting it. I love all four of the colors. I did not find them to be to warm or too gold like some people said, I am an NC25-30. I love that the hilight color is not shimmery. The colors have great payoff and are smooth and silky. I am considering buying a backup of this. Just wish these quads weren't so expensive.
Lipstick -Jemma Kidd Makeup School - Lipsticks - All

I purchased a Jemma Kidd classic couture lip stick from Target. The color I got is A-list. I'm big on the nude lip and this is a great nude. Not a corpse nude, it has just the right amount of pink/peach in it. It's what I wanted Myth and every other MAC nude to be. I'm very happy with it, however the price is pretty high for Target, so I had to take points off for that.
Great product and great price. Only $15 and I think it's better than the perfume because fragrance lasts long in hair and this makes my hair feel soft and look shiny. Wish this came out before I bought the perfume. I use the hair perfume instead of the regular perfume now. Oh and it has UV protection in it too which is another plus :)
I really like Dainty. This was the only blush from Sonic Chic that I purchased. It's a peachy pink and it does remind me of Orgasm, except orgasm didn't really show up well on me, just looked like sparkle on my cheeks and was difficult to build. Dainty shows up on me beautifully and you can gradually build up the color to your liking. At first I put too much on my brush and it was too pigmented. Next time I just picked up a little and then gradually added more on. I used the mini buffer brush. I am NC27/C3 for reference.
True this color looks horrid in the tube and nothing worth getting when swatched on the hand. BUT try it on your Lips! I almost didn't get this based on swatch but I am so glad I got it. This shows up on my lips as a pretty nude pink sheen. Not too opaque and doesn't wash me out, which is tough for me to find (NC27/C3) This is possibly backup worthy for me :) Whether it works for you or not will probably depend on your coloring and the pigmentation of your lips. I myself LOVE it :)
This is for honey bare tendertone lip balm with spf 12. The color Honey Bare is described on maccosmetics.com as a sheer peach with white pearl. When I look at it in the pot it does look peachy almost melon with gold shimmer. This was my favorite of all the new tendertones. It smells great and feels so smooth and silky on lips. I use a travel lip brush for this. It adds nice shine with subtle gold shimmer. Wish the peachy color showed more but from what I saw when I tested them, these are all pretty sheer.

Lipstick -MAC - Buoy-o-Buoy - Naughty Nauticals (LE Summer 2008)

My favorite from the Naughty Nauticals collection. This lipstick is my lips but better. Beautiful nude creamy color, not too brown, and not too pink. I like this much better than Hug Me. Buoy-o-Buoy is Fantastic! I really want a backup, Thanks MAC :D
Lipstick -MAC - Ahoy, There! - Naughty Nauticals (LE Summer 2008)
ShoeGurl26 5/3/2008 2:51:00 PM
This is my second favorite lipstick from the Naughty Nauticals collection. It's a pretty pink. Not too sheer where it doesn't show up and not too opaque. It looked really pretty with a smokey eye of mutiny, illegal cargo, and meet the fleet.
I thought I would like this gloss but it has an odd tone to it. Purple iridescence on your lips. Maybe this would look pretty on a pale cool girl.
I got this with b2m which is a pretty good deal considering these are $16.50. They are larger than regular lipglasses though so I guess I understand the price difference. This (bare necessity) was my favorite out of all the dazzleglasses. Nice peachy color with pink glitter. It doesn't feel gritty on but it definitely sparkles. You can layer it for more color, otherwise these are all pretty sheer. I don't think I would repurchase but I'm not that big on sparkle so that's just me.
