Perfect matte neutral light tan - I'm very fair with strong pink undertones and I have a hard time finding blushes that don't make me look like I'm having a heat stroke. I picked this eyeshadow out to wear as a blush color and its perfect for me. Because my skin is so light this gives me a hint of neutral tan on my cheeks without making me look so flushed.
Eye Shadow -Physicians Formula - Matte Collection Quad Eye Shadow in Canyon Classic

Just turned 40 and realized it’s time to retire my shimmery eye shadows for everyday use. I love this matte palette and the colors work perfectly together. Why is it so hard to find matte eye shadows? I’m extremely fair and the colors work really well for me. Great basic palette and YES the two brown colors do look different on the lid. One is much warmer than the other.
For those really fair ladies you all know how difficult it is to find concealers that are light enough for you. I loved so much that NYX has several shades for pale skin. THANK YOU FOR THAT! I bought the Porcelain, Fair and Light and the color range is fantastic for me. The texture is a little hard to smooth out but I haven't seen any creasing yet underneath my eyes.
Mascara -Cover Girl - Professional Super Thick Lash Mascara

FANTASTIC! I have been looking for a replacement for my Voluminous that I have used for years (even though it flakes) and this CG Super Thick Lash is AMAZING! I have been testing it on one eye and my other mascaras on the other eye for comparison for a few days and so far this is winning. It doesn't flake and really doesn't smudge underneath the eyes. For $4.99 you really can't beat this mascara!
FAVORITE mascara! Saw this on Beautypedia reviewed by Paula and she said it was a BEST product and I AGREE! This doesn't clump and made my lashes so long but still soft. Way better than Maybelline Full & Soft which I returned. I don't get the low ratings .. this is absolutely perfect. I hope they don't discontinue this I will be very unhappy!
Mascara -New York Color - Sky Rise Lengthening Mascara

Great mascara for $1.79 .. doesn't really give much volume but it does a great job of lengthening and separating. I had to put on a few extra coats than my normal mascara but for the money you cant beat it. Saw this on Beautypedia and I agree with Paula.
BEST pink lipstick EVER! The color is gorgeous and I can see why everyone loves this. I have very fair Irish skin and this color looks great on me. Perfect glossy bluish pink with just the right amount of saturation. I don't care that it doesn't last that long .. the color is PERFECT! Doesn't have that orangey tone that a lot of pinks do which look horrible against your teeth.
I have tried so many liquid liners and this is probably the best! It stays on even under running water. Unless you have really oily skin this is perfect and will last as long as you want to keep it on.
I just don't get the hype on this .. it made my lashes crunchy and the brush is horrid. I have longer lashes normally and this didn't do anything for me but make my lashes darker. I used it a few times and threw it away. There are so many other options out there .. L'Oreal mascaras are superior.
This is my favorite mascara of all time. I have been using it for 15 years and I have never found any other that can compare to it! The black is very pigmented and doesn't turn gray like some mascaras. It makes your lashes thicker without having to use so many coats unlike the Maybelline products. My only complaint is that it tends to flake a little by the end of the day but I am willing to look over this flaw considering how thick and black it make my lashes look.
I was expecting much more volume from this mascara. Saw all the great reviews but I wasn't really impressed. I found I had to use more coats for this to even show up compared to my favorite Voluminous mascara by L'Oreal. Nothing really compares to it so far! This does make your lashes softer but I didn't get length or volume? Its not bad .. but I probably wouldn't repurchase.
After doing some reading I realized that this stuff is made with the cheapest ingredients. This felt like I had poured a vat of that silicone gloss all over my head. It left my hair with the weirdest slick feeling and made my hair look like it had static in it? People think they are getting a moisturizing treatment but all this stuff is doing is coating the hair with a weird glaze. Glad it was only $3.50.. I'll go back to my Matrix and Redken.
This does smell a little like VLJ but without the harsh berry punch at the beginning. I like Siren MUCH better than VLJ since its a little softer and fresher smelling. It is just a clean fresh citrus on my skin. I was very surprised at how much I LOVED this. I just went back and bought the largest bottle.

I do realize I'm years behind but ... THIS SMELLS AMAZING!! I had always thought her perfumes would smell so cheap but this is now my favorite perfume. Shocking! Its so fresh and clean smelling. I love fruity soapy smelling fragrances so this is wonderful to me. It doesn't last that long but I enjoy reapplying it. I just ordered the largest size!

Not like Burberry Classic! I also bought this based on the reviews without smelling FL first that this was a cheaper dupe for Burberry. I can see some slight similarities at first but this is SO POWDERY! The dry down is so sweet and cheap smelling. I bought the largest bottle and I will be throwing it away. I tried it twice and both times had to wash it off. Burberry has a fruity soft clean smell and this was so overwhelmingly powdery. I can't see why people think this a dupe for Burberry?
