I bought Caramel Kiss. This is one of the worst lip products that I have ever used. It is gloppy and leaves a white cast to my lips. I can only use it at night because it makes me look dead no matter how little I use. I will not be trying any of the other flavors. Terrible.
This foundation really highlighted my dry patches and seemed to dry my skin out more than it already was. It also settled into my fine lines under my eyes. I LOVE the Superbalanced foundation and was hoping that this would be as good or better..but it isn't.
Primer/ Corrector -L'Oreal - Revitalift Miracle Blur

This stuff is HORRIBLE. It is thick and hard to spread. It balls up on the face and feels like a mask. It is IMPOSSIBLE to wash off. I washed my hands 3 times before my soap would foam..same with my face. After I removed it my faced BURNED for half of that day. Avoid this stuff..there are a TON of primers out there that do the same thing that this stuff claims to do.
I was reading reviews on this palette after rediscovering it in a drawer of mine. I have had it for over a year now and have only used it twice. I really should have returned it. The shadows are not pigmented, they are muddy, some are powdery, and some are just a glitterbomb. They do NOT look like the same colors on as they do in the pan. I LOVE Tarte Amazonian Clay Blushes and their LipSurgence. But I am staying away from their eye shadows from now on. I will stick to Urban Decay or MAC.
I LOVE this perfume. It is wonderful and fresh and unique. I bought a bottle when it first came out and just ran out. When I was browsing around I found out that it is has been DISCONTINUED by Burberry! Ack! I was horrified and quick ordered another one before you can't find them anywhere! So..if you love this as much as I do..stock up!
This is a terrible foundation for anyone who has ANY fine lines..especially around the eyes. it gathers in my fine lines under my eyes and then it sets. I can't smooth it out or fix it AT ALL. It ends up making my under eye area look much more wrinkled than it is. It also feels heavy on my face. All 3 times i have tried it I have needed to wash it off within an hour. Yuck.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide on eyeliner in bourbon

Ugh. Urban Decay. This is a nice medium brown..but it has a TON of glitter in it. It is a nice soft liner that goes on well and stays put better than MAC Powerpoint on me but something in the formulation of this liner really irritated my eyes. I wore this for 2 weeks before I realized why my poor eyes have been so sensitive and why I have not been able to wear my contact lenses for 2 weeks. It also made my eyelids swell. It's a nice liner if it works for you, though.
I am just not a fan of this palette. The shadows are very powdery and get all over the place when you use them. Some of the colors do not have any color pay off. The quality of the individual shadows is very inconsistent. The ones that have shimmer/glitter have very chunky glitter and no pigmentation. The packaging is cheap and flimsy. I would be afraid to travel with it as it does not stay closed on its own and is thin cardboard. Kitten is wonderful as is the color that is almost exactly the same as Kitten..but other than those 2 colors this palette is a pass for me.
I got a deluxe sample size in a trio of primers from BeneFit at Sephora. I am now using this one and have been for 2 weeks. I do not really like it. It does not make my skin smooth, doesn't help my foundation go on or stay any better/longer, and I certainly do NOT see any "glow". Not worth the money.
I bought this after reading a lot of hype on blogs and watching a lot of videos on You Tube. I have to say that I just don't get it. The texture is not any better than my Wet n' Wild shadows or my Urban Decay shadows. The color is ok. It's pretty and glowing..but I was just not wowed by it like I thought I would be. The packaging is incredible...I will give it that. Other than that it is just a nice very golden color. Maybe I should have gone with Rosewood instead.
At first I loved this product. It seemed to be moisturizing and it had a beautiful color to it. I started wearing it everyday. That was when things went bad for me. My lips because insanely dry and cracked. As soon as I stopped using this balm my lips went back to normal. I am very disappointed!
Lips -Tarte - LipSurgence Natural Lip Tint in Perky

I love this product. It is the perfect sheer mauvy pink on my lips. It moisturizes and lasts a very long time. I also love the minty smell and taste. The packaging is not bad. My only problem with it is that my cap cracked. It split right down the side on me and I didn't even push it too far on. I bought this in the set of 5 for the Holidays 2011 from Ulta. The set was $25 for 5 full sized. I would find it hard to shell out the $24 for just one, though.
These are ok. I like the fruit punch scent and the texture. I also enjoy the applicator. I can't stand stains in the pen. They always stop working on me. The color selection is terrible. I bought the lightest ones that they make and they are quite dark...a lot darker than you would think that they would be by the cap color. They last forever on the hands but not very long on the lips.
I had to put my 2 cents worth in here. It's a nice palette. The shadows are high quality and finely milled. nice and silky. But the whole thing is REALLY sheer. I put on the light base color over primer and you could barely see it. I really had to pack it on. The dark brown was so light that I barely could see that either. The blush is gorgeous swatched with a finger but does not not show up on my NW15 skin when I use a brush. This palette just is NOT worth the $79.00 that it costs.
I got this as a GWP from Clinique and decided to try it out this week as it has a nice SPF in it and I am looking for a nice moisturizer with SPF at the moment. The first day that I used it everything was fine. The second day. ARGH! It burned. I applied it and then my makeup. As soon as I went outside and the sun hit it it started to burn. My eyes watered for a full hour before I had the chance to wash it all off. My eyes and the area under then is still very sore a day later.
