When I purchased this blush, I was a bit apprehensive, to say the least. I did not know how the darker color would look on my LLL olive/yellow skin, but I assumed it would give me a natural colored flush. I was not disappointed. It was as beautiful on my cheeks as it was in the pan. It gave me a flush that I would get if I were sitting in the heat or the sun for too long, at the first time I tried it, I knew it was love. I took one lippie off because the texture makes the blush hard to apply a small amount, but Montenegro looks gorgeous nonetheless. Worth every penny. For reference, my skin type is oily and acne-prone. My haircolor is a light brown with golden brown highlights. My eyecolor is green.
A few weeks ago, I finally bought this beloved, popular blush that everyone's been raving about! The color is best described as a coraly-peachy blush with a hint of shimmer. It gives me a great, natural flush, particularly nice on slightly tanned skin. Torrid brightens my whole face; it's such a lovely color! The price is expensive, but for the product, it's completely worth it! For reference, my skin type is oily and acne-prone. My skintone is LLL with yellow/olive undertones. My haircolor is a light brown with golden brown highlights. My eyecolor is green.
Eye Shadow -Pure Luxe Cosmetics - shadow liner-All

Finally, Pure Luxe! So exciting to see great quality makeup at such a cheap price! I've got 43 eyeshadow/ultimates/powder samples... and there's no way I'm using any of them up in the near future! I find that these shadows are very pigmented on me, and I don't need to use a lot on my brush. There are so many colors to choose from, all differing from each other. Its lasting power amazes me... when I don't use primer, the shadow lasts for seven hours until it creases (a lot for me!) Lippie off for the packaging, only because sometimes the colors spill out of the jars when I unscrew the cap, and I want to save as much shadow as I can. Love Pure Luxe!!
Oyster Girl is such a lovely, pearl color on my semi-pigmented lips. It's very shiny, and it is not too opaque and not too sheer. The consistancy and smell are familiar to all MAC lipglasses. MAC has yet to disappoint me. *** Very light!
Gina is the absolute best! It is a straight peach with absolutely no glitter, and although that may SOUND boring, believe me, it's not. Think of the most gorgeous, glowing, natural looking cheeks you've ever seen. If you've ever had any doubts about emulating this look, Gina makes all of your glowy-cheek fantasies come true. It's not too orange, but not too pink on your cheek. Gina is something that hasn't been replicated yet, and I highly recommend this blush to anyone. (PS, I've got LLL skin.)
Mascara -Maybelline - Full 'N Soft Mascara Waterproof

I like this... leaves my lashes full and soft, as promised, but only for the first three months. Then the mascara starts to clump... rapidly. After its three-month life span, I use my HG Clinique Naturally Glossy until I purchase a new FnS.
Although a bit pricey, these gel liners are my LIFE :) These come in nice, flattering colors and are easy to apply (with the right brush, that is.) And they are so long lasting, but come off so easily when you use eye makeup remover. Definitely a phenominal buy.
Lotions/ Creams -L'Occitane - 20% Shea Butter Hand Cream

I love this! It stays on my hands and it's just the right consistancy. There really isn't much to say about this product that hasn't already been said. It absorbs into my skin right away, and I get so much for the price! I love this and will definitely purchase again.
Well I first received Sin in a swap, I was surprised by the color - it looked like a dirty plum color. But when I put it on - wow! It looks so different from all of my other blushes. (And I'm a blush whore!) It gives me a nice glow on my LLL/GGG neutral toned skin. I will definitely purchase again!
Conditioner -Bumble & Bumble - Leave in Conditioner

I am very surprised by the negative remarks - this is fantastic! This is the only conditioner I've ever used that does not make my hair look limp. It strengths my hair too. I love this and will indefinitely repurchase. (Medium thickness hair and fine strands)
This is incredible! I use this or the Parsly Blemish Stick, but honestly, I can't tell the difference. They all have that slightly stingy, minty feel on my face and clear my acne instantly! I'm probably on my third full sized roll-applicator of this! I love it and I will never stop using it.
Luscious and divine, this baby oil is an instant staple. It's smell is incredible and I love the oily and moisturizing feeling on my body when I jump into a hot tub. This makes my skin so incredibly soft! I will undoubtedly repurchase.
Oh. My. Gosh!! This is incredible stuff! Within minutes after applying I can feel it peeling off the dead skin on my lips, and after 10 minutes, my lips are full and soft! I love the sleek and classic Dr. Hauschka packaging, and it's smell is very nice and theraputic. And I like that this is being sold in stick form. I will most definitely repurchase!
I like the lacquers! I really have problems with scent in lipglosses, but I really do not identify the plastic smell at all! Although I'd rather have a wand gloss, the pot does not bother me at all. This is a really nice bronze color, although I did have a bit of a problem because this is a very frosty shade! It seemed to flatter my skin though, and I will repurchase. (LLL skin with semi-pigmented lips)
I knew this color wouldn't work for me, but I play around with this in Sephora. It's a silvery-beige color that would look nice on darker skin. I'm just a bit too light for this color. Although, this texture is fantastic compared to other NARS glosses!(PPP/LLL skin with semi-pigmented lips)
