this is my first bright lipstick! i am absolutely in love! i found this on sale at cvs for $2 so i had do get it. the packaging is chic, its black with a quilted pattern. the lipstick is called coral, but its actually more of a hot orange tinted red. it's somewhat drying after a while, but thats nothing some lip balm cant cure, but over all the consistency is creamy. the lipstick is very pigmented. it looks fantastic against my fair winter skin worn with simple eye makeup and neutral blush. love love love this stuff.
in the bottle this color is a very pale gray with some subtle shimmer. when first applied, it comes off very very sheer almost translucent white. i actually really like this. the color is buildable. you can stick with the sheer grayish white, which looks natural; or you can apply 2 more coats to achieve an opaque(very chic looking) pale shiny gray. this is one of the many reasons i love essie, the formula is very fluid, so it allows for versatility. this polish doesn't chip on you if you apply a good base/top coat.excellent product! ps. if your nail polish is streaky, you're probably not letting it dry long enough in between coats.
im pretty dissapointed in this foundation. the consistency is runny, the coverage is buildable. however, it emphasizes all the dry patches on my skin, even after moisturizing and exfoliating! there is also a fair amount of shimmer in this, which doesnt really bother me, but it might bother others. the pump is really nice though! i wish they would put colorstay in the same packaging.
thank god i didnt pay any money for this. this stuff sucks. no pigmentation or staying power.
Eye Shadow -Sephora - Colorful Mono Eyeshadow - Aspen Summit (23)

i got this for free from sephora for my birthday. it is such a pretty color! i use it as a highlight. i like to put it on my inner corners, it really makes my eyes pop!
i got this in a sample size for free with my birthday gift from sephora. i was actually really surprised at how much i liked it. the pigmentation in it is wonderful. i only need 2 coats to get nice everyday volume and length. this can clump up on you if you apply too much. i havent had any problems with it flaking or smudging. overall, it is a nice everyday mascara.
i love this bronzer!!! it looks so natural, not muddy or orange. im pretty pale, so this definitely rare. its not super pigmented, but just enough to get that sun kissed color. it is definitely buildable. it has some minor shimmers in it, which i like because it makes my face light up! so if you're looking for a matte bronzer this isnt for you, although the shimmer isnt super noticable. i got this with the to the beech packaging, which is really cute(orange with white coral detail). it's compact style with a mirror is great for touch ups.
i love this stuff! sooooo pretty.Its so multi functional! its great as a sheer purple eyeshadow, it looks crazy vibrant when foiled as an eyshadow/eyeliner. the best use ive found for this is to mix it with clear lipgloss. its a gorgeous shimmering pale lavender, which looks great with my pale skin and blonde hair. i was hesitant about it, but soo happy with the results. i also tried mixing this with clear nail polish and had similar results to the lipgloss. great stuff, dirt cheap, gorgeous. what could be better?
this stuff is gorgeous!! its very finely milled shimmering powder. its not so much nude, as described, but more of a soft gold. it makes my green eyes pop! when applied dry, its pretty sheer(as are most of the pearl mania's), but when foiled it looks so vibrant and pretty! it stays on all day. its dirt cheap, but i HATE the little jar it comes in, its really hard to use. although the bottle is small, there is a decent amount of product in there. i would definetly buy again.
this is a really nice nude lip color. its actually nude, it doesnt look like concealer at all. its the perfect compliment to a dramatic eye. its a beige color with peach undertones, very pretty. make sure you apply lip conditioner before hand, this stuff can be a little bit drying. i apply lip conditioner, let it sink in for a few minutes, apply a coat, blot, apply another coat and it looks great! the staying power is not that great, but its such a pretty color! i love the packaging, very sleek. those who are looking for a dupe of mac's myth, this is pretty close but its a little darker and more peachy.
i love this blush! its such a pretty color. it looks so natural on me. it has just the right amount of shimmer in it to make you look like your glowing. warning: alittle of this goes a long way. i hadn't really used loose blushes before this, so it was a little difficult to get the hang of the sifter. overall i love this stuff!
I'm new to the concept of solid shampoo. it sounded like too much of a hassel, but im sooooo happy i tried this!this lathers beautifully! it has a unique smell...sort of sweet sort of herbal. i like it, and it sticks with me through the day. my hair is so soft and shiny! this baby is gonna last for days!
Bath Treatments -LUSH - Vanilla Fountain Bath Ballistic

this is really cute! it smells wonderful, sweet, but not too sweet. It fills the entire house when i take a bath! unfortunatley, the scent doesn't last long after you get out of the bath. this didn't foam up at all for me! it just turned the bath a weak yellow color(reminiscent of you no what...) so basically, this product did nothing. BOO!
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - Heavy Metal Glitter Liner in Distortion

this product is really nice for parties and/or costumes. it looks strange by itself, so i usually layer it over a darker color. there is absolutely no fall out, which i love! however, it is a pain in the but to remove the glitter, i'm picking it off my face weeks later... this stuff is fun, but i wouldn't repurchase.

this is really pretty! its a nice bright teal color that looks nice on my skin in the summer, when im actually tan! its really creamy and the color payoff is great. however this product is really pricey. its fun, but i probably wont buy it again.
