I love this color. Totally unique. A beautiful deep emerald. I took one lippie off because I find the new formula doesn't stick as well to my lid (if that makes sense). Harder to really layer it on. The metallic seems to move around, even over top a primer. Otherwise, love the color, love Urban Decay!!

Love this product! Beautiful formula, beautiful finish. Gives a beautiful glow without looking frosty or sparkly. Great for highlighting cheeks. Flawless!
Powder -Unlisted Brand - Geisha Ink - Loose Mineral Foundation

I was pretty excited when I heard that Geisha Ink launched a loose mineral foundation, after my beloved pressed was discontinued. It finally arrived in the mail last week and here are my comments: I was at first worried I would not like it as much as the pressed. To my surprised I actually like it more:)! The coverage is better than the pressed, and it blends into the skin flawlessly, almost creating an airbrushed look. I ordered the kabuki brush as well which buffs into the skin beautifully (Kabuki brush is soft with perfect density)! I have oily skin and this powder wore for approx. 6 hours before having to touch up...pretty good in my opinion. I asked them about a finishing powder (which I noticed most mineral foundations have). They informed me that this does not need a finishing powder due to it's formula and quality...I agree. Personally I did find the whole "finishing powder" a marketing gimmick to get people to spend more money...but that's just my own personal opinion. All in all, I really love this foundation.
Beautiful brush. Quite expensive, but if taken care of well, it will last you forever! Never had a problem with hairs falling out, or it loosing its shape. Beautiful hairs, perfect density! The best crease brush!
Blah, I thought I would give this a try b/c due to my oily skin I get the random breakouts. I found this extremely harsh on my skin, stripping it of any oil. I found that this only made my skin oilier! My skin became dry and oily, and didn't make much of a different regarding my breakout. Added a lippie b/c it is really affordable when bought via infomercial, and they do a full refund if you hate the product. I am sure it works for some, just not for me.
Expensive, and dried out in within a month. Very disappointed with this product. Shouldn't have veered from my HG liner...
A friend brought this to me while visiting from Canada. This is a great mask for my oily skin, however not the best I have ever used. I like it because it is not too over drying. Good texture!
I have used better tea tree oils. My friend brought this to me from a store in Canada. The concentration seems weak, and it is quite a small amount you get. I, wasn't impressed....thank goodness it was a gift.
Mascara -Kiss Me - HEROINE MAKE volume and curl mascara (black)

I was excited to try this product due to it's rave reviews. It is true, it does not smudge and holds a curl well. However, I found it extremely clumpy, not overly volumizing or lengthing and it SOOO hard to take off. I do not like using oil based removers, and this is exactly what you need with this mascara. No thanks, I will stick with my HG Geisha Ink mascara. Volumes, lengthens does not flake or smudge, and comes off easily with soap and water.

HG MASCARA FINALLY FOUND!!!! Beautiful volume and length! Perfect sized brush! Does not smudge or budge ALL DAY! Comes off easily with soap and water. Incredible mascara! So glad I ordered!
I decided to try this because of all of the great reviews. I found this really dried out my lashes and made them look clumpy and spider like...No good! I recently just got Geisha Ink's mascara (because of the amazing reviews as well) and so far it has been the best!

My curly hair can sometimes be hard to manage in the dry Las Vegas desert. This keeps my hair manageable and silky soft! I have oily hair, so I only use it every once in awhile when my hair starts to feel dry and staticey. Awesome product, great price!!
This mascara was almost exactly like Kiss-me, which I am not a fan of. Did not volumize and created the tubes around the lashes. I was disappointed the products were so similar. **UPDATE- Geisha Ink's volume mascara is 1000x better then this one. If you were unhappy with this mascara, try Geisha Ink**
This smells really good. However, nothing like read velvet. It smells like chocolate cherry. However, it lather really nicely and makes my bathroom smell lovely!

Good color combo! Wish the colors were a little more pigmented, and didn't last as well as I hoped. I have to make sure to wear a primer base under these shadows or they will crease due to my oily skin. Good price and great colors! I will try another duo soon!
