I love this so much!My favorite deep pink/plum shade that I own and I love how creamy these go on.It lasts on my lips for hours and isn't streaky like my Maybelline Color Sensational Lipsticks tend to be.I will repurchase and also try out more shades!ALSO,I love how it looks with my dark skin tone!
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - ColorIcon Palette in Lust [DISCONTINUED]

I love this!I have worn the matte shades two days in a row and they are fab!Would definately reccommend and repurchase!It was only $4.99 at Walgreens!Plus the colors look great with my skin tone and eye color!
I love this! I had been wanting to get an eye primer for months because I had been watching youtube vids where gurus always stressed the importance of an eye primer. I couldn't seem to find a drugstore one,and came so close to breaking down and buying UD Primer Potion(I'm a drugstore mu junkie so that would've been a MAJOR step).Primer Potion is pretty much almost $20, which i think is ridiculous. Anyway I was on the eyeslipsface website and noticed their mineral line had one. I got so excited,mainly because it was only $3! I had high hopes for it but didn't want to get my hopes up. When I got it and tried it out I was in shock!It did make my eyeshadow last forever!It says it's transparent or whatever,but I do have to be careful how I apply it because with my dark skin it doesnt blend evenly and disappear. Which is not a big deal really. As far as making the shadows more vibrant, I don't see that it does that but the main thing I want in a primer is making the shadow last and not crease. It does just that! I suspect it will last awhile too as long as it doesnt dry out since very little is needed to cover my eye.I can't compare it to any other primers because this is the only one I have ever tried. I'm very satisfied with it so I don't have reason to try any other!
Eye Shadow -Revlon - 12 Hour Eyeshadow quad in Steel Impressions

Wow,I love this. I am wearing it right now! I only bought this palette for a specific look I wanted to try out. I didn't even think I would like this much. What attracted me to this was the BEAUTUFUL greenish-blue(way more green than blue) color. It looks stunning on me if I do say so myself. I usually don't like greenish shadows but this color got me into them more. It's definately unique in my collection because I don't have any other greens like it. I feel like compliments my darker skin nicely. I also love the highligt color(cream). It's one of the few highlight colors in all of my palettes that show up on me. It's very pretty. The sparkly light black is pretty too. It's not the blackest black,but nonetheless it's very pretty! The silver color, I have only used once. It's my least favorite of the 4 just because I have other silvery colors that look and work the same. I use it as the "transition" color between my crease color and highlight. I use the cream shade for a highlight, the green color for the lid,the black for the crease,and silver for the transition and it makes the perfect look. I think it's great for night time or day too!I would totally buy this again when this runs out(which I think it will)!This is my favorite revlon shadow that I own,especially as far as the quads are concerned.
When I first used this mascara I hated it because it didn't give me the results I was used to.But after using it a couple more times,it was just "ok".I like my lashes dark&long,but this doesn't get the job done.Definately doesn't "plump" the lashes.It gives me slightly longer lashed,but that's it.So I like to use it when im going for a natural look.It's looks better with 2 or 3 coats.Another thing I don't like about it is the packaging.Its in a boring tube and looks cheap...it is cheap actually.worth 2 lippies at least.

I love this!It made my lashes look just how I love for them to...dark&long.The tube is super cute and I love the brush....packing is just like covergirl's lashblast.even the brush is the same.However,this stuff cost like $10!So that's why I got it a 5 for it's price.
Polishes -Wet 'n' Wild - Rock Solid Nail Lacquer - Beautiful in Bronze 226
gnechole 4/20/2009 3:25:00 PM
I love this polish!I got it from Rite-Aid(&"rockin rubies" too) on clearance for .81 cents!Such a steal.In other stores it's around 2.99,which still isn't bad at all.I bought this color mainly for my toes,because I like more neutral type colors on my feet.It looks great with my skin tone.I've had it on my toes for 2 weeks&it's still in good shape!No chipping or fading yet!I think I used 2 coats.I'd buy more colors from this collection if they had more variety.would repurchase if I ever ran out.
I painted my nails with this on a whim in cosmetology class.i have a red polish of my own but haven't used it yet.i decided to be "bold" i guess and try this color.I really do love it!It's like the perfect red for my skin tone(brown,ha).I don't like the bright red polishes or TOO dark reds in general,but this isn't bright or too dark.Like someone else described it's more like a blood red(dark red).It does only need one coat,but on a couple of nails i had to use two...not sure why,but anyhow.I used this with a base&top coat.I am anxious to see how long it lasts without chipping,but my $1 N.Y.C polishes last at least 4 or 5 days without chipping,so I'm expecting even better results from this!I keep looking at nails because they look so pretty!This is the first red I've worn on my nails.I think I may eventually have to buy a bottle of my own if I can find it anywhere for a good price! **EDIT** I had forgotten I had done this review forever ago. A few hrs after I applied this,it started chipping. I thought a "good" polish like this was supposed to last, yet my $1 NYC and wet'n'wild polishes last way longer without chipping. I tried another OPI after that and wasn't impressed either. I will stick with my cheapie polishes.
Eye Shadow -E.L.F. - brightening eyeshadow quad - drama
gnechole 3/8/2009 2:34:00 PM
I really like this a lot!I found it a while ago at K-Mart for $1.00 and I was happy when I did because at that time I had been looking for a cheap quad to make a smokey eye look.It's really pigmented on me and last ALL day.It's even a pain to get off,but nothing a little warm water and face wash can't do.I don't recall it creasing either.Definately worth a $1.I'm very pleased with this set and I like to use the gray color to do colored smokey eye looks(like pink smokey eye,purple,etc)!
I was hesitant to try this because I had heard it wasn't that good,not a big deal.but i just tried it and it looks like i have spider eyes!for me thats a very good thing because i love dark,dramatic lashes.this does that look very well.the tube IS big,but thats not a big deal.the main thing is that it works well and even better than my favored max factor 2000 calorie mascara!it does get clumpy a bit,but nothing an eyelash comb can't fix i imagine(tho this time i didn't use one).overall it's a 4 out of 5.i took one star off for the clumpiness&large packaging.
Lotions/ Creams -Victoria's Secret - Beauty Rush Body Double Mist Juiced Berry

I LOVE this spray.A few weeks ago I went into VS and was just playing around with the various scents of Beauty Rush.I came across Juiced Berry and was like "wow!this smells sooo good!It doesn't have that "fake berry" smell like other berry scented products.It really doesn't smell like berries,but a type of candy instead!I layer this over the Juiced Berry Lotion to help power the scent and make it last longer.This spray isn't watery to too strong either.Its like half oil conditioners/half scent,you shake it up,then spray!I would purchase it again and am already looking into other scents!Also the price was pretty decent,all the lotions/creams/sprays/body washes were 3 for $25!
