I received these from Nordie's.com and upon opening the box, i was dazzled. This comes with a pink and black cardboard/plastic like container and a pink puff inside, then you have larger than average meteorites under the puff. Upon pulling the puff out of the container, there was a bit of powder from the balls that had collected in it, and a cloud of powder ensued. I apply these meteorites to the face using a fluffy blush brush and I do not get glitter: i get a subtle shimmer. But I also make sure to tap the brush off before applying as these are very powdery and softer than the permanent line of meteorites. These give me a youthful glow and I love them!! Very happy with my purchase.
Blush -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish - Porcelain Pink

I got this and fell in love with the pretty light pink irridecence with the golden highlights. This highlighter is very finely milled and goes on the face with ease. I just use a light hand with the brush to get a nice highlight on my cheeks. This is definatley one of Mac's best msf's in my experience.
Highlighters -Wet 'n' Wild - Fergie Centerstage Collection
beautyglitter 1/18/2013 2:15:00 PM
This highlighter is from the Wet-N-Wild Fergie Centerstage collection. I am reviewing the Rose and Champagne (the lightest one). This is a very shimmery highlighter, so I use a very light hand when I apply. It is not as soft or finely-milled as some Mac MSF's that I have, but this is veryyyy nice for the low price.
This is a VERY beautiful pinkish white shimmer powder. Very finely milled, not at all glittery. Great for a highlight!!! Very little goes a long way, this little container is going to last me forever! LOVE!
Lips -Yves Saint Laurent - Volupte Sheer Candy Glossy Balm
beautyglitter 12/26/2012 7:53:00 AM
I have the Lush Coconut and the Cool Guava Sheer Candy's and i love both sooooo much. They smell so good and they feel and look great on the lips!! One thing that irked me is that I went to apply my Lush Coconut one and it fell apart! The black liner in the lid came completely out and fell on the floor and i was O.O. Then after i got over the shock I looked inside the lid and saw 4 little dots where the liner had been attached to the inside of the lid by hot glue! I am so disappointed right now. I am just going to take this one back and get another in the same color in it's place and hope that one doesn't come apart on me, because I really do love these things. They are so nice..My Cool Guava has not had a packaging problem like this..yet. So I'm just gonna write this down to say that maybe the one that fell apart is defective and call it a day. Will update if I have any more problems.
BB Cream -Too Faced - Tinted Beauty Balm Multi-Benefit Skin Care Makeup
beautyglitter 12/16/2012 5:54:00 PM
Had this in Vanilla Glow and it was too dark for me. Everything else about it was awesome. Gave me a beautiful glow, did not dry out my already very dry skin, works great as a foundation primer, and pretty packaging. I see that Too Faced now has a lighter shade online called Snow Glow, so I will try that when it hits stores.
Liquid -L'Oreal - True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Makeup
beautyglitter 12/14/2012 12:48:00 PM
Let me just get what stands out in my mind about this foundation out on the table first: it made my face look shiny. I have really dry skin and i love a dewier look, but this is not dewy on me. i like a lit-from-within-glow, not a grease-ball face. returned.
This lippie is a baby pink color. Very pretty and flattering on my NW10 skintone. It is not as moisturizing as I had hoped it would be, so i have to wear a lipgloss over it. Comes in a luxe gold tube which, when you close it, it closes securely and in a nice way..it's hard to describe. Great packaging.
Primer/ Corrector -Sephora - Illuminating Primer-Snow White
beautyglitter 12/11/2012 7:19:00 AM
This is a review of the Sephora+Pantone illuminating primer in Snow White. This goes on sooo smooth and when I apply my foundation and concealer over it, they go on flawlessly. My foundation lasts all day (but it does that anyway even without primer lol). This is a pearly white color with like a more prism effect in the product. Does not leave sparkle on my face at all, just a beautiful, glowy luminosity. I can compare this to the Guerlain Meteorites Pearls Primer in the fact that it looks the same when I wear it and that it does not make me oily..just that this primer is wayyyyyyyy more affordable (it's sad thou, because it is on clearance at Sephora for $13, so I got backups). Doesn't look like it when you look at the packaging but you get 1 ounce of product. This does have a scent, it's like a more chemically kind of scent i guess, but nothing that turns me off. I really love this and wish that Sephora would keep this in stock!
I really love this gloss because it is not sticky and does not dry my lips out like some glosses can do when they wear off the lips. Also, this gloss smells and tastes sweet, like caramel, which i love. i love sweet smells and tastes.This is a clear gloss with champagne shimmers in it and looks really beautiful when i apply it. It is more on the sheer side, so if you want a really pigmented kitten gloss, get the lip glaze. That one is so pigmented that it is metallic lol. For me, this gloss is perfect. I will defiantley repurchase when i am out...just wish it didn't cost so much.
These glosses are part of the Holiday Collection from Lorac for 2012. This set comes with 6 glosses and they are all shimmery and sweet flavored. They have a little bit of stickiness to them, but nothing IMO that deters me from loving these glosses. They come with a brush applicator which is my favorite applicator for a gloss. I really love that they are very pigmented, and the colors are so beautiful. I will buy another set if I can find another one before they stop making them.
I got a sample of this a couple of years ago and had no idea what i was in for when I applied this to my skin for the first time. This stuff is beautiful!!! It made my skin have a pearly glow and kept it hydrated. Then I realized how much this stuff costs for the full size and about passed out. So i started using my sample very sparingly, and still have a tad left in that little tube that i have forgotten about until just now. I may go ahead and use the rest of that tomorrow or something, but I will not get a bottle of this since it costs so much. It makes the Guerlain Pearls Primer seem almost cheap LOL But this serum really is nice and i would recommend to anyone with the wallet copacity to maintain a regimine with this stuff.
I love this!!! I use it under my Diorskin nude concealer and it helps to cover my circles beautifully. Does not dry my skin out despite the alcohol content, and I have very dry skin. Does not crease or cake at all. I think this comes on two shades or something, but I have the lightest one, and it is the perfect color for my skintone. This is very easy to blend too. This is defiantley one of Garnier's best products that they have ever made. The only downside is that I have no way of telling when this will run out of product since you cant see inside or anything, and it has a rollerball applicator. But I have been using mine everyday for over a year and still going strong. I will buy another when i run low on this one!
Lip Gloss -Philosophy - Flavored Lip Shine Collection
beautyglitter 12/5/2012 8:33:00 AM
I love these glosses!! They taste sooo good and do not leave my lips dry. I own 3 of them at the moment and plan on owning more when I use up some of the lippies that i already have. But I wanted to do a quick review on the Salted Caramel Hot Cocoa one since I don't see it listed. This has to be my favorite one. It tastes so sweet, like caramel. I just feel like eating this whole tube LMAO, but I won't. This one leaves a slightly darker pigment to my lips, it is a brownish color in the tube, but is mostly clear. I will definatley be buying another when I get low on this one (I'm at half a tube right now).
Lip Gloss -Philosophy - Lip Shine - Marshmallows For Toasting
beautyglitter 12/5/2012 8:02:00 AM
I bought this last year and it tasted soooooo good. That's the thing about Philosophy's Lip Shine's: they are nommmmmmmms! Well, this one was clear with a little shimmer in it (i couldn't see shimmer on my lips once applied thou) and tasted like marshmellow sweetness. Love the squeeze tube packaging since I can control what comes out and it is more hygenic.
