I had seen Pixiwoo use this as a nice highlight in many looks, so I had to pick it up! NC30 with olive undertones, it was a bit greener than I expected...but lovely nonetheless! I just happen to prefer warmer undertones. Beautiful pigmentation and blends like a dream.
I am positively addicted to this perfume. I also learned that this was Michael Jackson's favorite - he apparently covered everything in it. You do need a light hand with this. It stays close to the skin but I've never gone a day without a compliment. I would even say that this is my HG perfume. Sex in a bottle! EDIT: I wore this out for the first time today and a man - albeit creepy - followed me through the entire grocery store and told me how nice I smelled. Just sayin'.

Wow, I typically love philosophy but this was just a huge let down. I only got a sample, and I'm so happy that was the case. Easily the worst smelling moisturizer I've ever used. I put it on two hours ago and can still smell it on my face despite covering it in sunscreen, etc. Wasn't too happy when I looked at the ingredients either...
Such a gorgeous product. It's practical, reasonably priced, and still in a beautiful little bottle! I love patting this on my skin post shower, and it doesn't break out my face. Smooths my hair and makes it shine like a dream! The girl at Sephora also pointed out that Moroccan oil gradually stains your hair, while this product does not.

I hate to say it, but I really wanted to be stunned by this line. It was just a let down. Beautiful packaging, smooth product. But my hair was no different than the times I've used Suave. Don't waste your money, sorry.
My first CCB! I've seen it featured in so many YT vids, and I was super excited to finally have it in my hands. It lived up to expectations completely. After six months of nearly every day use, I just hit the pan. It's a lot more versatile than I expected, and the texture is beautiful. I love how it photographs! It's not a staple, but I love topping up a look with this.
I HOARD this blush. It's my every day contour. Such a gorgeous blush, simple packaging. It's never failed me. And it blends like a dream!

I've seen this in the kits of a few MUAs...I was kind of taken back to be honest! That was before I tried it. I had been testing out a few higher end foundations for the past few months, but was never really happy with any. I couldn't wait to finish a bottle. This was an impulse buy, but I will certainly be repurchasing! I was ecstatic as soon as it was off my brush. I forgot what good foundation was in lieu of pricetag! The fact that I can actually choose my undertone makes me so much happier. With HE brands, undertone most of the time just goes by brand. I've never been happier with a foundation, and dare I say, I may have found my HG. I even had my friend take my photographs spontaneously a few hours after applying. My skin looked the best it ever has! Smooth like butter - and I have hormonal acne along my jaw, undereye circles, and rosacea. Not an easy thing to cover. But true match did, and blended beautifully.
Staple. Another Lancome classic. Although the smell is kind of funny, I still adore it nonetheless. My mother loves it too! I got her a tube and while we both hoard DS mascaras, we just can't go without this. The tube itself is gorgeous, as is the brush, but most importantly, the product is of quality. Seldom does it flake, nor does it run. Treat yourself and get this before it sells out! 1000+ reviews speaks for itself.
This is "Flowerbomb"'s baby sister. If you like Britney Spears's fantasy, this is just like the dry down of that. I dislike how stagnant? for lack of better word, this scent is. There really isn't much development. But it's a guilty pleasure! I adore the warmth of it, and get many many many compliments from men. I'm on my second bottle. I love it, but it's not something I really "have to have". Definitely try it out while you're still young and able!
I absolutely adore this lipstick. I'm gonna go crazy without it. I must be on my fifth tube. For one reason or another, it's the only matte that won't dry my lips. Some days it's a little more pink on me, others a little more brown - but I love it all the same. It's perfect with stripdown liner for an Angelina Jolie lip! And neutral enough to still play up the eyes. Gorgeous.
