To me, this is stickier than Vaseline and is not absorbed by my skin as well as Vaseline is. I do use this on my cuticles in the winter and like the cute tin, though. Overall, I do not reach for this very often.
Highlighters -Sephora - Tarina Tarantino- Sparkle Powder

- Tarina Tarantino - Sparklicity Pure - Sparkle Powder - Exclusive to Sephora - This is a loose sparkly powder. It is shimmery light pink in color. It comes in a nice thick glass pot with a cute silver and pink lid. This is SO pretty! It is sparkly- NOT glittery. It is a very fun (but still adult) way to shine. In good lighting this really DAZZLES! It is listed on the Sephora website as a luminizer. This could also be applied over eyeshadow for a sparkly finish. I am tempted to sweep some on my décolleté and shoulders. It is so versatile and I imagine the color would work for every skin tone.
I got this as a gift and love it to death and back again. The smell really does it for me. I want my whole life to smell like this! Cleanses well, leaves no reside. The glitter in it is kind of pointless but sure is pretty! Love love love! Mmm! My nose just eats this up.

I have a tweezing problem. I'll be the first to admit it. It is one of my favorite activities in life. I love doing my friends' brows. Therefore, I have TONS of tweezers. This is my favorite because it can grasp the tiny fuzz hairs but the tip is not sharp enough to cut me/snap the hair if I grab too close to the skin. It is worth the price to a tweezaholic like myself!
This my perfect HG highlighter color! It makes me look absolutely dewy and radiant. It does not affect my powder foundation underneath it at all. I love the nail polish-style bottle. Blending is easy- it really contours my face. It makes me break out every time, though. This is a special occasion only product. If it did not make me break out- I'D WEAR THIS EVERY SINGLE DAY!
I bought this because of its fame. It actually delivers. It fits my weird droopy eyelids beautifully. It is a no-nonsense, classic looking piece of beauty tool art. It is a little expensive- but worth the price.

I love this- it works. It makes colors pop and prevents color loss/creasing. The trick is to use just a little. The golden shimmer color is so pretty that I am often tempted to wear it alone. One day I just might!

This gold lipstick is on the sheer side. It looks great on me and I imagine it would look even better on tanned skin. Sometimes I wear this over another lipstick to warm it up and give it some sheen. Love it. The loose powder is nice- could be a little more metallic/bold. It is subtle and pretty, though. Clutch is tiny and adorable!
I find that manual removal and a magnifying mirror is the best way to get rid of blackheads. If I left my nose alone for several months and then used one of these, I imagine that it would work perfectly. I don't like to let my skin get to that point. They really do remove all of the fuzz (tiny hairs covering the nose) which feels nice but makes my nose shiny. Don't need that! I always see these and think of the tv commercial where the girl peels it off and says "It looks like a porcupine!" I used one on my boyfriend. It was a little gross porcupine.
I love color. I do not fear it. I was looking for a blush that was not pink, plum, or bronze-y. This is it! This blush glows in the compact and also on my skin. It's very pigmented, so be aware of that. I wear this with a red lipstick and winged black eyeliner. Looks great! If you are intimidated by the color- please use a tester to see how it looks on your skin. You will be pleasantly surprised. Give color a chance!
I love this- a perfect cool pink blush. It is very pigmented so a little goes a long way. It warms up a little on my skin, but keeps that cool undertone. Makes me glow. The sparkles are really pretty- but sometimes cause a blemish or two. The color is so pretty that it is totally worth it! I find that the packages are actually easy to clean and then look like brand new.
You want hot pink? You got it! This is the most vibrant blush I have ever seen. Neon, almost. I had to have it. It only takes a little to get the kind of color I am after. The color looks surprisingly natural- not as scary as you'd assume it would be. The color lasts, too. It pops on pale skin and I assume it would look exceptionally good on dark skin. My hot pink lipsticks have a new BFF!

Run your fingers across this brush and you are sold. Soft isn't even the word. Perfect for travel. It applies powders effortlessly and does not lose hairs. It doesn't hurt that it is also SUPER CUTE!

Love this micro full spectrum glitter topcoat! Dries quickly makes my mani last a little longer. Adds the right amount of sparkle. It is also buildable. I wear this over a polish that has a prominent flash and WOW! What a dazzling mani with depth galore!
My HG mascara. NEVER smudges or runs. Separates each lash beautifully without any clumping whatsoever. It lasts and lasts- sometimes longer than I want it to! To take it off, I use an oil cleaner all over my face and let it sit for a few minutes. Then I rinse and gently pull the "tubes" off. I have even slept with it on and it looks perfect the next morning. I like to use an eyelash curler on my lashes after this mascara dries (since I know that it will not flake off) and it holds a curl really well. Worth every penny!
