As many others have said, the smell at first is very, very overwhelming. But the afterscent after calming down, is really girly-like, and smells sweet. The bottle is really cute, too. I don't hate it, but I don't love it either. Not enough to buy, though.
I wasn't expecting a big WOW from this, but it did! I am always looking for mascaras, buying and trying, but none really work for me. This, however, gives me volume and thickness, which I find fascinating. The fact that if you do apply more then 3 swipes, I found, it does tend to clump the lashes together, but it really does it's magic. I intend to buy again.
I'll start off with that I absoluetly adore this eyeliner. It stays on, it's waterproof, and the color is GORGEOUS. It's aqua (duh!), with some gold specks and shine, and it looks beautiful in the sun. It takes a while to actually get off, but it's better then it smudging off within a ten minute span. It actually does take precision to get it on, and a steady hand, or you'll have to keep scrubbing to remove your mistake! But, nonetheless, it's a beautiful, blue color. And I wouldn't mind buying again.
Palettes -Urban Decay - Book of Shadows Vol. II [DISCONTINUED]

My, my, my! I have got this as a Christmas present, and I was so thrilled to finally have it in my hands! The colors are beautiful, and the palette itself has so many looks in only 16 colors! Some of the colors are even only seen in this palette, so it's worth the price. It also comes with the fabulous eyeshadow primer, and two eyeliners. I love the fact that after using the UDPP, you only need a tiny bit of the eyeshadow to show up so vividly. I don't like the packaging as much, but I can deal. My favorite shades have to be Flipside and Homegrown, as well as Ecstasy and Sphynx. It's a huge step up from the first Book of Shadows, and I'm very pleased with the results of this one.
Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel in Blacktrack

I have been reading the reviews for this for a while, until I finally went down to my MAC store and purchased it. I let the MA try it on me so I could make sure it was what I wanted, and how I could apply it. And as soon as I looked in the mirror, I think my money went down faster then I could gasp! It's a true black and once it does dry, it's on. I had it on for hours, and it still looked like I just applied it. Worth the money for sure.

I can't believe how much I loved this lipgloss from VS. I'm not a real fan of any lipglosses, but this one is so soft pink with specks of gold, I can't stop staring at my lips! It is a little sticky, however it lasts pretty long and worth the price.
My first MAC lip gloss. Recieved in swap, and must I say I am very impressed with this. The color is a creamy sheer pink to me, and only in BRIGHT sunny light you can see the blue. But for some reason, it seems it disappears after a while? Anywho, this color is gorgeous and is a definite for anybody who wants to look simple with an edge.
I've only used the little sample bottle, and boy am I pleased! I can't believe of all these bad reviews! I'm quite young, so no real wrinkles, only the ones on my forehead when i raise my eyebrows haha, but I put some and quite suprisingly I kept lifting, up down, up down. No wrinkles for a while. So I wanted to try my mom on this. She has some around her eyes. And they did go away, she looked younger! Haha! If I ever remember to find this in a store, I will. I call this little tube a tube of magic. (:
I'm normally not a "green" person, so I normally don't wear anything of that shade, but this pigment is so gorgeous! It can go dramatic or simple, it just depends on how you apply it and how much. It has a slight gold shimmer to it. Too bad I only got a sample size of this, but if I do run out, I will be buying again!
Beautiful color, and I am proud to say that this is my first OPI ever! The brush gives you just enough, no gloopyness, no bubbles. It lasts a while, any only needs really one coat. But I saw a little chipping on my nails, maybe because I'm a tough working girl? Haha! But its gorgeous, coral seems. Maybe a little hot pink but it compliments my fair skintone without looking washed-out. Recieved in swap and will definetly buy some if I ever run out. (;
I really like this pigment! I can't describe the color though, I guess its sorta red, brown. But its shimmery and so fun! The color is just gorgeous, and it applicates smoothly for me. I recieved this in swap, hopefully I will be able to buy/swap for a bigger version when I run out!
I love this color on me! I like to use it with a wet brush though, as it does applicate smoothly. It's very very sparkly but it goes well against my skintone. I recieved this in a swap, and I wish I could get my hands on a bigger version!
I love the smell of this! I usually wear Love Spell or Amber Romance, but Pure Seduction has become one of my top signature smells. (: I always get compliments on how it smells, but the only con is a few sprays is enough! Will be buying again.
Lip Gloss -Cover Girl - Wetslicks Fruit Spritzer Fig Splash

Bought and I don't think I may buy again. I mean, its good, but the smell is horrible. Pros: Inexpensive, moisturizing, good packaging, shiny. Cons: Smells like rotten chocolate, does not look good on my skintone nor looks good ( in my opinion. ) by itself. I think I'll stick to Guava.

Bought today and I personally love it, I couldn't stop looking at my lips! It smells really nice and is very shiny. The only con about this product is that there is very little colour, but its very good at moisturizing. Will buy again.
