I used the shade "Lightest Golden Brown" to try to reach my natural hair color which I haven't seen in eons. The color is a deadringer for my natural slightly strawberry blonde meets dirty blonde natural color! I will admit, the dye smelled rank! However, the dye was extremely inexpensive at my drug store and the results are astounding! Comes with the real gloves- not the stuck to the paper awkward kind.

I picked this cologne out for my father when he was stuck in a rut and couldn't find any dates. He was completely miserable, and I thought a bit of man-glamour would help him out. He wore this scent to the beach the night we bought it and met the woman of his dreams. This was after maybe two years of trying to find the right one after a terribly heart breaking divorce. It covered his scent of cigarettes and gave him a nice ocean-like odor. He's officially smitten with this cologne and that's saying something considering he's not the type to care much for personal maintenence. It smells sophisticated, adventurous,and passionate.

This is a must for any girl with that inbetweeny not fully straight but not completely wavy hair! It takes my hair to the next level. My hair is very thick and generally unmanageable but this combo makes it easy to get it into the light waves I like. I think I'm in love. (:
Generally, I go for Revlon Matte Really Red but this time when I walked into CVS I saw 75% off stickers on every other color. I took a gamble on this one. I was worrying that I would hate this stray away from my usually perfect pinup pout, but what a pleasant surprise! It is wondefully sexy and has a nice contrast to my pale skin and blonde hair. In all, I would love another tube. It cost $2 and I can see myself wearing this color often within the coming winter months. This shade is the best cold weather shade! Revlon Matte is wonderful!
At first I was wowed! Oh gosh, how wonderful! My lashes look so long! However, I soon noticed that when they dried, my lashes looked awful. I looked like a circus freak. It tends to flake throughout the day. The clumping was so awkward that a friend mentioned it to me and recommended Covergirl Lash Blast. How embarassing! My product cost around $20 and what was recommended is merely $6 at CVS. In all, I found this product was ineffective as far as making a girl look beautiful and natural.
It looks natural despite the glitter. It makes me look fresh and healthy. My mother is quite a bit tanner than I am and this shade even worked on her. This just takes the cake! The packaging is so posh that it alone makes me want to buy loads of NARS makeup! Beautiful color and presentation, I'm sold! (:
I like to have a perfect pin-up pout. So naturally when I ran out of my MAC Ruby Woo and had no money for a new tube, I searched desperately for a dupe. This shade is perfect! Many people (even people at the MAC counter!) were still convinced I was wearing Ruby Woo! Not only was it perfect, but at a very reasonable price(BOGO at CVS!). I got this and the matching lipliner for around $7! Wonderful! (:
This pigment is a wonderful light ballet slipper pink and has become my most used item! It's light enough with one sweep to be a highlight color, but when I use more of the product it becomes a nice dark color for other uses. It looks gorgeous on my pale skin and I'm so happy I bought it! If a MAC counter near you still has the Naughty Noir eye set grab it! It's around $36 for this pigment, zoom lash, fluidline, and an eyeliner brush(all full size!!). Not to mention, the case the pieces come in is adorable!
This stuff created nice long lashes better than any high end mascara I've ever used. Definitely recommend this to anyone not looking for more volume, but looking for length.
Stays on forever and actually comes in a light enough color for my pale skin! Hands down, the best concealer I have ever used.

I chose Premium Pink.This lip color came out nicely at first. However, when it began to dry its true nature shocked me. It was the stickiest, most unbearably un-kissable, and terrifyingly tacky lip color ever. My lips stuck together as I spoke. It was a sheer disaster. My first instinct was to pull out my makeup remover and get rid of this awkward gooey mess, however it would not budge. The color lasts when you'd prefer if it went away.
