Eyeliner -NYX - Liquid Crystal Liner - Crystal Gun Metal
ceruleanblue95 10/15/2012 8:50:00 PM
I love the payoff and how the glitter applies, but this product burns my eyes and eyelids! I do not have sensitive eyes whatsoever, so it surprised me when this started hurting. The burning sensation only increases, so I have to return this. I initially bought this for halloween, but it looks like I'm going to have to find another glitter liner.
This is a stunning teal blue color. It has a rich pigmentation and looks beautiful on the lid. I don't use this for every day, simply because it is too much, but sometimes I wish I could rock it! Colors are so much fun to play around with for me and this is one of my all-time favorite brights.
I like the color of this eye shadow a lot. The issue that I have with it is pigmentation. It simply doesn't perform as other Veluxe Pearl eye shadows. It is a beautiful color, and packed on creates a pretty, spring/summer look. It has a blue shimmer to it that adds a really nice dimension to it. Oddly, with this eye shadow, I find it best on its own, with no colors paired with it. It is a pretty wash. This has never happened to me with any other MAC shadow before, but the pan is kind of sticking out of the pot, as if the glue isn't stuck all the way. I plan on depotting it when I got another MAC palette, though, so no worries. I took off 1 point for pigmentation and 1 point for the stupid pan problem. MAC should know better!
Eye Shadow -MAC - Mink & Sable - Starflash Collection

I recieved this in a swap. It is such a beautiful golden-green-brown color. It 's quite pigmented, because of the Starflash finish. Unfortunately, I cannot really pull off green shadow, but I will sometimes wear this in my out v of as a liner with something underneath like UD Mildew or Stash. It is nice to have other higher end colored shadows though, but I will probably never finish this up.
This is an amazing highlight and blending out color because it is so pigmented, and only half a shade lighter than my actual skin tone. This eyeshadow is extremely creamy and crazy pigmented. Huge Yay from me. It's so much better than Brule, and it's a staple for me.
I love this because it amps up any nail polish and makes your nails become a conversation topic easily. It applies nicely and doesn't chip for at least a week for me. A+!
This is a very nice purple shade on my nails, but it just isn't as pretty as I'd hoped it would be. OPI polishes wear beautifully but the color isn't as pretty as it should have been. And I continue my search for the perfect lilac color!
I love this shadow! I actually used to hate it, because I thought it was so unpigmented. It is when swatched, but applied to the eye, it looks like a subtle beautiful purple color. I am always drawn to purple-gray colors when I'm in the MAC store, and I always pick this one up, look at that back, then realize that I already have it! I wear this all the time now, and it does work as an everyday eyelid, or crease color. A more shimmery version of this is the limited edition Hypnotizing eye shadow, which I own as well. Worn together, (with Hypnotizing on the lid and Shale on the crease) it becomes a beautiful purple smokey eye that is also very wearable. I do not think that this is the color of a bruise, but just a pretty, subtle, gray toned purple.
I got this in a swap in the color "Rosey". Overall, it is such a great lip balm! I find no faults in it. It moisturizes lips well, smells amazing, and oh my gosh, the color is beautiful! It is very similar to MAC Viva Glam Cyndi; however, it is sheerer. Although they aren't dupes for each other, I would say they are very close. It might be impossible to tell whether or not this was MAC Cyndi sheered out or this on the lips. Yes, I would totally buy again, and all the other colors too the next time I go to a Sally Beauty Supply!
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - Color Icon Trio - Silent Treatment

Firstly, I am friggin in love with the lid shade. What a beautiful taupe! It has a purple undertone and beautiful shimmer. It's crazy pigmented and looks beautiful on the eye. The crease shade isn't great, but I like it as a liner, and the browbone is fine too, but the Eyelid shade outshines them all! The trio is worth it just for the lid color on its own because of the amazing price. I am so glad I got this quad, and I see myself finishing the lid color and buying another!
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - Color Icon Trio - Walking on Eggshells
ceruleanblue95 3/1/2011 9:05:00 PM
I adore this little trio. It is a bunch of pigmented neutrals, and is labeled with "Highlight", "Crease" and "Eyelid". By far my favorite is the brow color, and it is very similar to UP Virgin from the Naked palette, although I admit that the Urban Decay one is superior. The only problems I have with the shades are the fallout and the shimmer. Often I'll wear just the brow color and the lid color with a matte or a semi matte in the crease to tone down the shimmer. Wet n Wild trios are amazing, and for the price, they are well worth it. I would say these are the best shadows in the drugstore, but if you tend to like mattes, they may not be for you.
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - Color Icon Single in Brulee
ceruleanblue95 3/1/2011 8:54:00 PM
Wet n Wild shadows are amazing. This one is a smooth, creamy matte skin toned color, perfect as a highlighter or all over the eye to even the skin tone. I hit pan on my first Brulee but then it began to break in big chunks, which is a downer, but for only two dollars, it is so worth it. I use this almost every day, and it has become one of my staples. Dare I say HG? This blows MAC Brulee out of the water!
What a perfect deep fall color! It looks sophisticated, and is a bold but not black look. As with most OPI nail polishes, it applies smoothly with no streaks and doesn't chip for a good 3 days (on me, anyways). I love it on my toes. It is a perfect fall and winter color, and oh so gorgeous!
My favorite OPI polish so far. This is a "my nails but better" color for me, and leaves a shiny, glossy look to my nails. It's an all over healthy look and I love it! It applies easily and smoothly. It is THE perfect nude nail polishes, and seriously, go get it!!
This is a beautiful, lightly frosted nail polish with a cool toned pink hue. The color doesn't look good on every one, but I think it suits me quite nicely (I have neutral undertones and can wear both warm and cool colors). The application is fabulous, just like most OPI nail polishes, but can be a tad streaky at times. When I don't know what color to wear on my nails, I reach for this and it has never failed me!
