These are way too cool man! It took me a while to finally buy these, because I've used the avon type before, and I didn't care for them, maybe because they were boring, IDK. anyways. I have a weakness for butterflies so I got these in Fly With Me. Very easy to apply, took me a 1/2 hour. I put a top coat on over these for added shine. I have been wearing these for a full day and haven't seen any chipping as of yet. I have done yard work and dishes today, so I'm pretty happy about that! I keep checking my nails for chips or peeling, but there are none! I will be buying more of these in the patterns because I have so much polish. They are expensive, about $9, but they are worth it and fun! I need to get my hands on the leopard print!
I am a mascara junkie. I try any mascara I can get my hands on, and this one is terrible. I got this in brown and when I put the wand in the tube, a huge clump of mascara came out looking like mud. thick and goopy. It clumped like all heck on my lashes and made them look weighed down and wet. I am bummed it didn't work for me, I was excited to use this. I won't be repurchasing.
The packaging is was got me to buy this blush! Very cute! I got this in Natural. This is more pigmented that I imagined it would be - in a good way. It gives a nice shimmery glow. The scent is lovely! Smells like EA Green Tea to me. I don't think it has really boosted my mood when I put it on, but it's just so darn cute, I get happy just looking at it. Price was good, $10.95 on sale with a BOGO 1/2 off at rite aid. I would love to purchase the bronzer next!
Mascara -Hard Candy - 1,000 Lashes Fiberized Mascara

Horrible. I bought this in underground brown. While I like the packaging, the mascara itself is awful. The little fibers are a contact wearers worst nightmare, they kept falling into my eyes. The mascara is thin and won't build. Will not repurchase. Sad, because I was excited about these.
Tinted Moisturizer -Hard Candy - Sheer Envy Tinted Moisturizer spf15
butterfly3475 2/18/2011 8:51:00 AM
I bought this yesterday at Walmart for $8. I read reviews before I purchased it, and it seems a lot of people like it. I've used it once, and WOW I love it! It gives a nice, dewy look and evens out my skintone. I wear NW25 in MAC, and the Tan shade is perfect on me. Blends nicely, and you only need a pea size amount for your whole face. I do have combo/oily skin, and a few hours after application, my t zone was shinier than usual. I would recommend if you have oilier skin, to NOT moisturize before using this. I moisturized before using this, thinking that it would help with blending, but its really not necessary. Goes on smooth, evens you out, and covers well. I will repurchase this!
Treatments -Clinique - Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector
butterfly3475 2/8/2010 12:04:00 PM
I purchased this product over a month ago because I have red/brown acne spots all around my chin and the lower parts of my cheeks, and my face just looked...blahhh, like it needed a pick-me-up. The texture of this product is silky smooth and goes on just the same. I have noticed my skin feels so much smoother than before I started using this...and it also has made my face look brighter and more fresh. I can't say it has faded my acne spots quite yet. I am going to give it more time. I will most likely keep buying this product because I love the way my face feels and looks when I use it. Since I have started using this, my acne has gotten a lot better, it didnt break me out at all. I use this with the entire Clinique combo/oily skin care regimen, as well as the 7 day scrub. I only took a lippie off because of price...$39.50. I would definitely recommend this product if your face looks and feels dull.
I have finally found my perfect nude! I bought this in #19 Innocent Beige. Its described as a sheer light peach nude, which I think is dead on. I have tried zillions of nudes and they all are either too pink, too peach or too brown. BUT alas! This is THE color! I love the texture of this lipstick, it has the feel of a gloss without the stickiness. It is sheer, but still nicely pigmented. I wore this lipstick for a night out on my birthday with smokey eyes, and it looked gorgeous! I recommend anyone still searching for their perfect nude to check this lipstick out! Nicely priced @ $12. I will buy more!
This eyeshadow is what got me addicted to mac's mes. I got this in a swap probably about a year ago and I LOVE it. This is by far my favorite mes. The colors are gorgeous and there are so many ways to wear them. Application is a breeze, blends well and color payoff is wonderful. This is excellent for a smokey eye, and mac's mystery eyeliner goes perfect with it! mes, in general, are AWESOME!! Will most definitely be buying more of these, and Im on the lookout for a backup Ether because Im running really low.
I have been using this product for about 10 years now and I love it. I currently use NW30. What I love the most about this product is the coverage it gives. I apply it with my mac 182 brush and it makes my face look flawless. The only drawback is that it makes my t-zone oily, but I can live with that because this is the only powder that really covers and evens out my complexion like I want it to. I will always repurchase this.

Lip Gloss -L'Oreal - Bare Naturale Gentle Lip Conditioner in Soft Bloom
butterfly3475 3/26/2009 8:35:00 PM
I bought this today in soft bloom. In the tube, its a pretty soft pink with very subtle shimmer. First use of the product is a pain because you have to keep turning the tube until the gloss goes up into the applicator. I was turning forever and finally when the gloss came out, it was oozing everywhere. The product has very little color payoff, doesnt look anything like the color in the tube. You might as well use a clear gloss. I havent noticed any gross smell to it, like others have said. The feel of the gloss is very similar to mac's cremesheen lipglass. It almost feels like water on the lips. Not sticky at all. I would probably buy another one of these next time theyre on sale because theyre kinda pricey $9.50, but in a different color. Tube is small also.
I am so glad I talked myself into buying this lipstick. my friend was with me when we saw it on display for the sugarsweet collection. I swatched it on my hand and thought the green shimmer was awesome. My friend thought it was crazy that anyone would wear a lipstick with green in it, and she talked me out of buying it saying "you'd never wear it anyway". So, I kind of agreed and off we went. I went back to my mac counter the next day and bought it. Brought it home and tried it on and instantly I was in love. The green iridescence doesn't really show on my lips, it turns into a really pretty gold/nude/peach color. This is my first mac glaze lipstick I've owned and Im pleasantly suprised. Glazes dont usually look good on me, they tend to make me look garish, but this one is perfect. I reapplied it all day yesterday and still havent changed my mind about it. This color is so unique! It's pretty moisturizing as well. I am probably going to get a back up because I can easily see this being a staple for me. I have nw30 skin for reference.
Primer/ Corrector -Maybelline - Maybelline Coverstick Corrector Concealer
butterfly3475 3/20/2009 12:43:00 PM
I have been using this product since I was a teenager. I love everything about this product and will continue buying it. I have strayed several times, but come straight back to this. It gives full coverage, blends well and the packaging is perfect. I use deep beige and have nw30 skin.
I was so excited to see this at sephora after reading about it in a magazine a few months ago. I smelled them all, and the birthday cake batter was my fave. Its a bit pricey ( I bought the lotion, no butter) at $16. Brought it home and immediately tried it on my arms. Smells just like cake batter! YUM. I love foody scents and this is dead on. The packaging is cute, and easy to dispense. Glides on smoothly and sinks right in with no greasy feel afterwards. The only drawback to me is the scent doesn't last long, and sometimes I smell a teeny weeny hint of buttered popcorn?? I will definitely repurchase this, only next time I'll get the body butter. I like to lay it on thick.
WTF was the MA talking about that everyone LOVES this mascara?? i guess their job is to sell, and that's what she did, but this stuff SUCKS. At my mac counter they keep this stuff near the register because "everyone wants it all the time". It does give volume, and thats about it, but my God it clumps like crazy. Don't even think about applying 2 coats of this stuff because you'll end up looking spidery. I cant imagine so many people wanting this. I will not be repurchasing.
