I really like this fragrance. I bought the larger size for 70.00. The bottle is really different. The scent is not at all masculine as I thought it would be. Very flowery and sweet. I gave it 4 lippies because of the staying power.
I did not like this palette AT ALL. When I first saw this palette online it looked like a fair value for 50.00. When it came I was so disappointed. I cannot believe they would charge that much for such a tiny palette. I also had a problem with the shadows themselves. They were not highly pigmented. I much prefer MAC or even Too Faced to these. I would not recommend this palette.
Makeup Brushes -Too Faced - Retractable Kabuki Brush

This is the softest kabuki brush I have ever felt. I bought it with the California in a Compact Nordstrom set and I am so happy I did. It is an adorable, metallic pink that is just the right size. It distributes evenly and I have not had any problems with shedding. I took one point from packaging only because the first time one was shipped to me it came broken. So I exchanged it for another and this one has not given me any problems. Overall I love it and would definitely recommend it.
Bronzers -Too Faced - California in a Compact - Beach Bunny

Another winner from Too Faced. I now own 3 Too Faced bronzers (California, Snowbunny, and Leopard) and I cannot decide which I love more. California in a Compact is their newest bronzer that is meant to be darker than their past bronzers. It does go on darker compared to Snowbunny, but not too much. It has a beautiful golden shimmer to it. I bought it as a set with their new pink kabuki brush and I am in love. I do one sweep with the darker and more matte side on my cheekbones,forehead, and nose. Then I swirl the shimmery side and lightly apply only on my cheeks. I I love it. The brush is super soft and applies super even. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.
Beautiful highlighter. I have light to medium colored skin and this is not a bronzer for me. It goes on as a shimmery,golden highlighter. The packaging is great and it is gorgeous on. I will definitely buy again. Can't wait till the Beach Bunny bronzer is released because it is supposedly a darker version.
Bronzers -Too Faced - Pink Leopard Bronzing Powder

I adore this product. I have light to medium colored skin, and it is definitely not a bronzer on me. I use it over my regular bronzer as a blush/highlighter. It goes on a rose/bronze shimmery color. It makes my skin glow. My only problems with it are the brush (very cheap and rough), and the packaging is not the best. Though it is adorable, the first time I used it the handle to the brush broke (good thing I never use it). Overall I will definitely be buying this again.
I LOVE this stuff!!! My fav of the Barbie Collection. I use it to highlight my cheeks and forehead and it gives me a gorgeous glow. I think it will even be prettier with a tan on me. I should have bought more than one! The packaging is adorable as well.
This stuff is really pretty. Like the past reviewer said, it does look really bright in the compact, but it goes on much tamer. It looks really pretty with a tan and with pale skin. Love it! I also recommend the Peachy color as well.
Overall I love this product. However, the packaging is just horrible. They come in really slim tubes that hardly any brush can fit in. Plus its going to be annoying when I get down the bottom (that is if I ever do). The colors are really pretty. I am in love with the yellow and pacific. I will probably buy them again but I really wish they would change the packaging.
These pots are pretty neat. They have a really creamy texture which makes them stand out. Plus they have some really pretty colors ( I love Herb, Black, and Pacific). I wouldn't compare them to MAC, but they are definitely worth the price. Not as much staying power as I would hope though.
Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel in Blacktrack

Awesome. As far as MAC goes, the fluidline and their shadows are their only products worth it to me. Blacktrack is a true matte black and goes on very creamy. Love it!!!
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

This stuff is absolutely amazing!!!! For as long as I can remember I have always had problems with my shadow creasing. I have tried everything to get the makeup to stay. Nothing worked. I applied some in the middle of my eye with the wand and then smeared it with my finger. AMAZING!! Makeup lasted all day and through a shower!!!!
This is a gorgeous color!!! Very soft and natural and gives off a soft shimmer. I cant believe I went without EM for so long! This color reminds me of NARS Orgasm somewhat.
Highlighters -True Colors - Loose shimmer powder/various colors

I cannot rave enough about True Colors. They last all day, the colors are rich and amazing, and they are super cheap! If you want to use a color for a dramatic color dip your brush in water a teeny bit and then apply and it goes on gorgeous. Or if you want a more sheer look apply dry and a little goes a looong way. Definitely recommend this makeup!
Gorgeous rich color. Lasts all day too. True Colors is the best!
