Lilu gets me compliments on a daily basis. It's youthful, beachy, clean, fabulous... One of my friends thought he was falling in love with me, but then we figured out it was just my perfume. Srsly. Do yourself a favor and go buy five thousand bottles before PacSun decides to discontinue it again.

LOVE this product. I'm prone to dry, cracking lips and this stuff really helps. If I apply it at bedtime it seals in moisture overnight and I wake up with fuller, healthier looking lips. It makes a nice pleasant smelling gloss if applied during the day. I've also used it on other dry spots and cuticles. My only complaint is that it can be hard to open, especially if you have lotion on your hands. I've spent five minutes fighting with the top and trying to pry it off before giving up and handing it over to my girlfriend. However, the struggles continue to be worth it. Two thumbs up.

This is one of my favorite liners I've ever had the pleasure of smearing across my eye. The color is a rich brown with subtle sparkle. I like how they didn't over-do it with the bling. It draws attention to your eyes without making you look like one of those gymnastics chicks in the Olympics. Smooth application, gorgeous color, good for creating a smoky eye. A+!
I truly truly love this stuff. It's the perfect pink to make you glow. Versatile, not heavy or oily, lasts all day, good for any skin tone. I use it when I'm going for that "innocent" dewy look. Just apply to the apples of your cheeks under your powder and then on your lips topped lightly with a shimmery balm (try Burt's Bees Champagne). Brighten your eyes with a light eyeshadow and two coats of mascara, and there ya go - natural and pretty.
Lash Blast is what's currently in my makeup box and, while I would buy it again, I'm not going to promote it as a total miracle product. It does a very good, very adequate job...and that's about it. I've noticed that it runs and flakes less than most mascaras I've used, and it makes me look like I have eyelashes, which I would consider a success. Good price points.
