It was love at first sight. Chanel hit the nail on the head with this tahitian pearl color. Its one of my favorite nail polishes despite the hefty pricetag. I receive many compliments everytime I wear it, i get at least 5 days of chip-free wear. I wish I would have bought a back-up...
I really wanted to love this polish. I do love the color, with 4 coats you get the true opaqueness you see in the bottle. However, all that work is to no avail, even with a base coat (essie's matte about you) the polish begins chipping/cracking the same day. By the next day large sections of my nail polish has chipped off. Sigh...
If I could wear this everyday I would. I thought I owned the reddest red (MAC Red) but I was mistaken. It gorgeous on my NC 43 skin, sure its a bit drying but nothing a little chap-stick can't fix.
Styling Products -Moroccanoil - Intense Curl Cream

I was excited to dry this product after all the hype behind this line. I've used other styling creams before with much success so I expected an even better performance from this product. This is definitely not a "styling cream". My hair had no hold, a smell I did not care for and an oily residue. It created more frizz and less definition. Just not for me.

This is my first YSL purchase. I will admit I was very hesitant due to the hefty price tag. The formula is amazing, long-lasting and sooooo creamy. Exquisite Plum is the perfect berry color for this season.
My favorite holiday all bottled up for me! I was fortunate to find China Glaze polishes for $2.88, I ordered this one and 2 others drom the holiday collection. I love this polish over Jolly Holly and Phat Santa. Two coats is just enough for that perfect holiday sparkle.
I really wanted to love this product especially after all the hype. Is it moisturizing? Absolutely. It keeps my lips soft, smells lovely and I like the slight pink tint it adds to my pout. However, I feel that 10$ is pretty steep and the packaging isn't ideal. I'm on the fence about repurchasing.
This is the perfect chocolate brown. Nice payoff, with 2 coats provide exact bottle color. Its a nice alternative to my OPI Lincoln Park After Dark. This will definitely remain part of my permanent collection.
I was on a bronzer binge this summer and suprisingly this one beat out the rest. I wasn't even looking for a matte formula but I decided to give this one a try. For reference I'm an NC 43. Its not too orange or too brown, not only is it the perfect bronzer its great for contouring as well. HG status!
This is a pretty decent drugstore foundation. I was surprised at how perfectly I matched my skin, I got #010 Caramel (Im an NC 43). I don't care for the shimmer however by applying translucent powder on set, it reduces the shimmer significantly.
This is hands down the best brush ever. I can do my entire eye look with just this brush. I particularly like this for paint pots, its blends them out realy well. I own two of these, one for my eyeshadows and the other for my paint pots.
I've used this liner for years, I was always come back to it. The felt tip applicator is easy to use, especially for cat-eye looks. Its easy to layer for that deep, intense black liner look. To avoid flaking I set it with a black eyeshadow on top.
This is my favorite paint pot. Its iridescent, no shimmer. Perfect for a sexy, smokey eye or by itself. I would definitely repurchase even though it may be awhile due to the amount of product.
MAC paint pots in general are amazing, they last forever and are easy to work with. Rubenesque is a great color on me even however I only wear it when I want a shimmery look. Its not as practical as Painterly or Groundwork but its definitely a pretty color.
Eh, I'm on the fence about this one. The type of foundation you use really depends on how this will work for you. Despite it being a "primer" I feel it works best for me when I apply over my foundation or mixing it with foundation. When I apply this prior, my foundation streaks and becomes almost impossible to blend. I will continue to use it until its finished but I will most likely not repurchase.
