Pressed Powders -Rimmel - Stay Matte Pressed Powder (ALL)

I love this product! I apply it everyday as my finishing touch on my makeup, I use the translucent powder. My skin is oily and it does last very well, with maybe one touch up during the day. I keep one in my makeup bag and one in my purse.
The Bronze Fire shadowblast is good to use the lighter end as a highlighter above your brown bone. When you put the the lighter end above your eyebrow it opens up the eye and showcases perfectly groomed eyebrows. I am a NC35, so if you still have it try it there. It's a trick I learned from a MUA at Bobbi Brown.
I love the shampoo and I believe that it works. People always say how thick and curly my hair is. It wasnt' always this thick, it had started shedding about a year ago and now it is twice as thick as it was before. Worth the money!
A little goes a long way with this product! I highly recommend it if you have oily skin. On the rare occasion I forget to put this on, I can tell as soon as I finish my makeup. It really helps your makeup go on smoother and your skin looks better.
I am suprised that Sin is rating higher on here than Orgasm. I am a NC35 and Sin made my skin look dirty and the blush was too dark. I'm sticking with Orgasm as my everyday go to shade.
I am shocked by all the hate on this fabulous fragrance! I have been wearing this as my signature scent for at least ten years. A week doesn't go by without a complete stranger asking me what I'm wearing or telling me I smell great. It has recently gone up in price and gotten higher profile models for the new campaign. I don't care how much this goes up, I have to have it!
This product dries out too fast. You also have to buy the BB brush to get this gel to come out right. The color is pretty nice, but it doesn't last all day. I would not repurchase.
I found this product to have a lot of rub off. I liked the color but it seemed a bit unnatural on my NC 35 skin. I had to return it.
I bought this pencil based on all of the recommendations on here. I love it! I thought I was going to have to shell out 15 bucks for UD zero again, but now I don't have to. This is better than MUFE eyeliner which I just got for free from Sephora.
Lipstick -MAC - Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Impressive

I love these lipsticks, right on target for this years glossy lips and lids combination. The SA said this lipstick is very soft and not to twist it out further than the case or it will break. It is gorgeous, glossy like a lip gloss without the stick feel and more pigmented. This is the HG for me.
I love this product! It really works on my naturally curly hair. I use it first then apply Herbal Essence totally twisted gel, then cd milk lite and cd hair balm. The end result is that my hair is curly and shiny and not at all frizzy. Will repurchase.
Primer/ Corrector -Yves Saint Laurent - Touche Eclat (Radiant Touch)

I am a NC35 and this product showed up slightly orange, once I got outside. I returned it. The hype on this product prompted me to buy it. Will not repurchase.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

I didn't like this product. It still didn't keep my eyeshadows from fading. I returned it, wouldn't repurchase.
I find Mac concealors too orange and too greasy for my NC35 skin. It looks like I have a pile of makeup on when I use Mac foundations and concealors. I returned mine. I swear by Mac for lipsticks and eyebrow pencils though, just not their foundations and concealers.
Makeup Brushes -Sonia Kashuk - Circle Around A Cause 6 Piece Brush Set

I love Sonia Kashuck brushes! I had read about them in Allure a few years ago and they are very high quality. I still have the same brushes from 4 years ago without any shedding. These are a real bargain! I also love Smashbox brushes.
