I LOOVE this! It is a perfect pea green, with an ever so slight olive tone, no blue tones in this at all, it's not glittery like traditionaly glitters, but more like a micro glitter mixed in with a mirco shimmer, very unique IMO. The wear was great and with a shinny top coat the shimmer was magnified big time. I loove this and user KRISTYLEOPARD has a great up close picture of it, I'd totally run out and buy this again if I ever ran out. This was my first Sinful purchase (well since I was like 12) and I was super impressed.
Ok, I THINK I'd buy this again, but like the reviewer before me said, the formula IS thick - and I guess it's just some particulars b/c I'd never experienced this with China Glaze polishes. User vbie3714 has a great photo of it. It is a sunny true yellow with yellow/white pearl, but it is thick and hard to apply & therefore took forever to dry. The wear was great like all Ch G, and a shinny top coat makes it a little better as it isn't very shinny by itself. But the color I looved!
I LOVE this blackened shimmery navy. Like the first reviewer said, it is hard to see the 'navy-ness' in it unless you look at it under light, otherwise it looks like black form far away. But anyway, the picture that ahappyplace uploaded really does it justice, it is exaclty the way it looks in the photo. I love it on me, I'm light-medium olive toned. The wear is good too, I used it without top coat and had a nice mani for 2 days, would've prolly lasted longer but I got bored and had to change it. : ) I would repurchase if I ever ran out!
I love this! So far I've only got this, OMG and Gr8 fromt the Holo OMG Collection, and this one has been my favorite! I love this avocado-light lime green color, it dries super quickly, and looks equally great applied sheerly and with 3 coats. And it wears like all Ch G, a dream. I didn't think I would really like this unique color but I love it, one of my faves now. I would definitely repurchase this if I ever used up a bottle.
Like other reviewers have said, this is a red/corally shade with a hint of a pink metallic pearl? A *hint*. Lovely shade for toes and looks great on my tips, too. Great opacity with one coat, but it only took 2 to get to the bottle color. Like all China Glaze, the wear is exceptional and the color selection is great, they're quickly becoming my favorite brand. I'd also buy this again if I ever used one bottle up. : )
One of my favorite reds!! And it's not really a red red, it's more a warm red, awesome pearly sheeny shimmery goodness! This is definetely one of my fav polishes. It almost has like a red pearl to it. I get tons of compliments on it & great opaqueness with just one coat. Two coats looks yummier of course. Orly polishes I LOVE especially b/c of the rubber top. Wear is great & with a shinny top coat this really stands out in a crowd. Anyway, I would repurchase this in a heartbeat & I honestly recommend this to everyone!
This is a true hot neon pink. It is almost matte but it does have a light barely noticable pink/lavender sheen. I'd recommend adding a shinny top coat for maximum hotness! Totally a great summer toe color. Of course China Glaze always wears awesome, sometimes I don't even use a top coat and the mani lasts me about 3 days with minimal wear, and that's WITHOUT a top coat. I got this at Sally's for about 3.25 USD with my Sally's discount card.
I had to delete my previous review on this and re-write one. I have fallen in love with this again! My previous review wasn't good, I must have been using an old tube, b/c I didn't like it then. But OMG - this stuff is awesome! What I love: - it is DARK black - super black - does not fade at the end of the day - it is almost an instant volume mascara, I never have to apply more than 2 coats. Even for going-out lashes. - hardly EVER flakes - it's super easy to remove if you know the trick! See below... - the tube is SO pretty - you can get it pretty cheap on eBay What I hate: - It DOES clump if you want to go on to 3 or more coats from what I've experienced - but you don't really have to go that much b/c for me 2 coats does the job. ****HOW TO REMOVE THIS MASCARA**** Ok, I found this out on accident - and omg it works like a charm. First, I wet/soak my lashes in water. In the bathroom sink, I cup water to my closed eyes and soak my lashes for like 20 seconds, then I just kind of gently pull the mascara off with my fingers/fingernails, and it comes of in little sticks/tubes - awesome! And then I just rub the rest off with a makeup remover - otherwise this is really hard to remove alone with MU remover.
Blush -Flirt - Peek-A-Blush sheer powder cheek color in Crazy In Love
esmeraldas 10/28/2008 5:25:00 PM
This is a pretty medium cool pink with tiny silver/white shimmer, it's not a 'sheen' it's actual shimmer particles you can see. But don't think it's that tacky chunky stuff that falls all over your face, no, once applied it looks really pretty and smooth. I actually didn't detect any of the silver/white particles on my cheeks afterward, so maybe they're just for show on the pan : ) I'm a very warm colored gal and I can wear this, so it's not a WAY cool-toned color. I also have to use a very light hand with this one b/c it seems like I've gone a bit far a couple of times and ended up clown-faced. :O) The packaging sucks IMO - too bulky. It comes with a mirror and a place where you can put the blush brush in comes with, and that sucks too by the way. The price is so-so $12 USD and you can get them at Kohls/Khols. I don't know how to spell that : ) Overall - I really like this!
Blush -Flirt - peek-a-blush sheer powder cheek color-ALL

These are one of my favorite blushes, next only to NARS. They're SUPER soft and finely milled so they blend like a dream. They have a variety of fun colors, I think I've owned 6 of them (swapped away 2). I have had Crazy In Love, Bittersweet, Hearthrob, Bronze Kissed, Urge & Apple Dapple. The price is $12 USD for a large pan & you can get them at Kohls/Khols - sorry :P The packaging I don't like. It's too bulky, and sometimes tricky to open. I've broken one of my flirt eyeshadows b/c I thought I was pulling the right end, lol. The scent is not pleasant, but I had to get reeeallly close to actually smell it and I don't smell it when I'm applying at all. Overall, these are awesome, superior quality IMO!
Blush -Flirt - Peek-a-Blush Sheer Powder Cheek Color in Heartthrob
esmeraldas 10/28/2008 5:09:00 PM
Well the description of all previous MUA'ers hits the nail on the head, it's a goood dupe of NARS Orgasm, and to tell you the honest truth IMO, this has better texture than O. It is very sikly and finely milled, so the blendability factor is awesome with these blushes, I've got 5 of these, and I love them all. They last a good while, not a long day, I'd say if I apply this at 7AM by 5PM I need to reapply - so not too shaby, but not perfect. The packaging I don't really like, even though they do stack up nicely, they're waay to bulky. Maybe I got used to the slim super cute packaging of NARS. But I would totally buy this again and I do recommend that if you ever venture out into this brand of blushes, you either pick this one up or get 'Caramel Belle.' Both are super flattering to a lot of skin tones IMO.
Eye Shadow -E.L.F. - Mineral Eyeshadow - Seductive
esmeraldas 10/28/2008 4:59:00 PM
You know how black matte shadows are sooo hard to apply without smudging all over the place, not to mention loose shadow? Well guess what? This stuff is not! It goes on super smooth, it's mineral, you get a whole little tub full for like $3 USD with a sifter, it's totally matte flat black and it lasts! I was aprehensive about buying any MMU from e.l.f. because I thought how much better could it honestly be than other brands? Well I can certainly vouch for their shadows! I've purchased 3 colors already and they've all wowed me, this one above the rest. The little container they come in is almost exactly like the BE packaging, except for the logo of course. So anyway, I totally recommend this & I would buy this again & again. This is my new go-to shadow to vamp up the outer corner easily and quickly.
LOOVE THIS. The color is a dusty cool-neutral mauve pink/brown with a little nice shimmer. It goes on great on my pink pigmented lips, without neutralizing. It's in the VGV area, just a shade darker and much less frosty/shimmery and more mauve-ey. It doesn't last very long, I applied a tendertone under so I won't end up with Sahara-ish lips by midmorning, and then slicked this on and it was ehhh... about 5 hrs before I reapplied. The scent of course is the yummy traditional vanilla. And the tube as well. (Traditional, not vanilla) :) So would I buy this again? IN A HEARTBEAT! This is one of my favs MLBB shades and I recommend it!!
Cons: - you get a very very VERY natural look with just one coat. Translation: NOT enough volume. I didn't like this at all. - it flakes. By mid-day I had tiny little black flecks decorating the tops of my cheeks. - The brush I like! It's super fluffy and bushy, I like it. - doesn't do a lot for the lenth of your lashes. Pros: - the mascara formula itself is very dark black, which I like. - it did not clump, even when I had to go back and give myself a 3rd coat, it felt like it had dried and I thought this is going to clump worse than old eyeliner - NOPE. I liked that. So I've done about 3 coats with no clumping, nice. - it gave me nice volume, but only after 2 or 3 coats, not with just one. Other facts: - it dries fast - it doesn't smell gross - kind of citrusy like another MUA'er said Overall - I would not buy this again simply because it's not my favorite & I've used better AND it's 19.50 - that's too pricey for a so-so mascara you have to replace every 3 months.
Eye Shadow -Unlisted Brand - Taylor Made Minerals - Glaze

Glaze is a pretty medium neutral or maybe cool-toned brown with nice shimmer, (and maybe a hint of taupe-ish-ness) and silver/white sparkle. It works great as a neutral on my light-med olive skin. This was my in-a-hurry-and-still-look-great-color for a long time. The texure is soft, but NOT like an "un-pigmented soft," these pigments are all very good about color pay-off. They come in nice 5 gram sturdy labled jars with silver tops, nicer than the regular clear ones you find anywhere. I think they're about $5.50 USD for a full 5 gram jar. I would buy this again and I recommend this if you are looking for that always nice neutral!
