This stuff is great! i love the lotiony texture, and a little goes a long way. it can sting the eyes, but i have yet to find one that doesnt.
Lipstick -Rimmel - Lasting Matte Finish by Kate Moss

i got 113 because im a nude lip girl. im nc20 and this is just barely too dark of a nude for me. it could work on me but it's not what i particularly look for in a nude. it's not bad. it did feel kinda grainy though.
i love sin! ive been wanting it for awhile although i wasnt completely sure if id like it. well, i do! i got this in a swap and im sooo happy with it. i usually reach for peach blushes, but this gives me a nice glow, too. its beautiful! and has great pigmentation! the sparkle is not overwhelming..its subtle. im nc20 so you light-skinned girls do NOT be scared to try this one :) its my first nars blush btw :) now somehow im going to have to figure out how to alternate this with my other hg lorac peach. im usually a pretty simple girl. i find something i like then use it everyday..i dont usually switch it up haha. sin=love ;)
i got this as a sample. it works fine. nothing to rave about. my problem with this product is the smell! it reminds me of an old lady and its soo strong. mind you, i am not one to typically complain about a product's scent, but this lingered and i could smell it on my face hours later even with foundation and powder on top of it.
i wear two mascaras together...this is one of them. HG STATUS!!! ive been wearing this mascara for like 4 years and i LOVE it. it gives great volume and defines lashes so well which is exactly what i look for in a mascara. i prefer comb-like wands like this one. if rimmel ever discontinues this, i will be sooo disappointed. for those of you who feel like this doesnt give volume, try applying this from the top of your lashes down after you apply from the bottom up. i find that it gives volume both ways, though. also, the packaging is so cute!
this is my favorite of the technakohls i've tried. its a really pretty color. personally, i prefer black e/l, but if i ever decided to change it up, i would consider using this.
This is an okay liner. It's no better than any DS liner I've tried, though. I don't think it's worth paying the extra cash. Save your money.
This is an okay eyeliner. I didn't leave it on for lomg so I can't say for sure if it smudges. Most mac liners do, though. This didn't wow me. I prefer my DS pencil liner over this. I wouldn't waste your money on this one. It's nothing special and you could get a DS liner thats equal quality if not better for half the price. For reference, I wear e/l on my lower lid.
I'm not a fan of dainty. i typically go for peach blushes and some pinkish pink so i though i'd really like this. i just felt like dainty was way too pink on my (nc20) complexion. if you like over-the-top pink blush, maybe dainty is for you, or maybe someone with darker complexion could wear this better. i would not repurchase.
this gloss is lovely! im nc20 and a nude lip lover. this suit me very well. it's thick which i love. it's high quality not cheap and watery. great color pay off considering how light it is, and it is buildable. the packaging is great too. sleek and cute! love, love, love this! ohhhh, and the scent is amazing! :):):)
Lipstick -GOSH - Velvet Touch Lipstick #134 Darling

im a nude lip lover. (nc20) i love myth's shading just hate it's drying. i am still on the search of a moisturizing dupe of myth. gosh darling is okay. i just tried ris so i quickly tried it on...then took it off in fear that it will be drying. so, i dont know yet if it's drying or not. ive read many reviews saying it is so im assuming it probably is. i like darlings color. it suit me well. however, i wish it was more pirmented.
Lipstick -NYX - Round Lipstick in Orange Soda #588
arkindt 1/31/2013 12:21:00 PM
i was hoping this would suit me (im nc20) as a nude because all of nyx's other nudes are too brown. well, this is too orange. it kind of reminds me of revlon's nude attitude though i like this one a little better. i prefer a beigey, fleshy, or slightly pinkish nude...;like mac myth. myth is so drying, though.
i had been wanting to try this for a long time. i love the nude lip look. like honey, this is just way too brown for my liking. nyx has yet to release a nude that suits me (sad face). it bums me out because they seem to be less drying than my fave nudes.
Primer/ Corrector -Unlisted Brand - Monistat - Chafing Relief Powder-Gel

idk why everyone raves about this stuff. it's crap. yes it has dimethicone but that and it's consistency are all it has in common with smashbox pf. it made my skin slightly smooth but not for long. it did nothing to minimize my pores or to make my foundation last longer. honestly, it seems like it caused my foundation to fade faster. weird, i know.
