After trying all sorts of eyeliners to do the winged thing, I've decided that this one is the best. I have too much trouble getting a nice line even with my MAC gel liners and I'm generally klutzy with those little brushes that come in some tubes of liquid liner (I have to keep wiping and redrawing). The pen in these makes the liner very easy to control, and while you do have to go over the line twice sometimes to get an opaque line, I still prefer these. Perfect size to throw into your makeup bag.
I recently got my hair cut very short from about halfway down my back. It's pretty thick and my stylist put some of this into it after the cut. I decided to buy it because I liked how it looked and figured I wouldn't be able to find a d/s product that would recreate the effect. I've been using this every day since I had my haircut and I've still got most of the small bottle. The other day I tried to let my hair airdry with nothing in it and it looked awful! A bit of this worked magic. It makes my hair shiny, piecy and smooth. Highly recommended.
Wonderful, fun, light neon pink. Wear with short nails and a sense of humor!
I bought this in Caramel Latte and Watermelon Sorbet, and while I like both, CL is more wearable for me. CL is a nice nudey color that covers my pigmented lips. It reminds me of the way MAC Hug Me looks on me, but it's way more moisturizing. Watermelon sorbet is a very bubblegummy opaque pink that also covers well but I can't imagine what kind of makeup to do with this one.

A very nice, very soft eyeliner pencil at a fantastic price. This looks really pretty on my brown eyes. The quality rivals that of Delux (who made my fave soft Chimpy Blue and Nilla black). The staying power is so so, but at this price, I'd definitely purchace it again.

Such a pretty liner for brown eyes. I paid 5 dollars over retail to get this LE item on ebay and I'm thrilled with it. Whereas blacktrack was harder to apply precisely and looked a bit extreme on me in the daytime, graphic brown is soft and beautiful. It emphasizes my eyes but doesn't look obvious. It's also easier to correct mistakes because it isn't too bold. Absolute love!
Love this pretty palette. Full of neutrals that are subtle and shimmery. This is the palette I never see in stores anymore - it must be that popular.
This brush was kind of scratchy on my face and it smelled weird. Pass.
Tried this out because of the raves on the board. I suppose it's good for building volume but the more I put on the clumpier and faker my lashes look. It also takes awhile to dry and leaves marks on my lids. I think this is good for an extreme look but since I don't like that for everyday, I'll use up my tube but not repurchase.

Love using this for a retro winged look. It's easy to apply once you get the hang of it (at first I was grabbing too much with the brush), but I still think it's too intense for me to wear during the day. Formula is great and I'll probably buy other colors.
Got this in colorless and it's a good match for my skin - blends with it even better once it settles. I bought the little jar and use a big brush with it instead of the puff. Pretty good coverage and you can layer it for a bit more. The only slightly weird thing is that it looked a little glittery to me. Might save this especially for nighttime.
Got this free from ULTA with my reward points, and probably wouldn't have bought it on my own. This red is really bright, a good teeth whitening shade. I'm not usually scared to wear reds even in the daytime but this is so opaque and glossy that it looked a bit extreme. Blotted it's beautiful.
Total love. Very glowy highlighter. Glad I hunted this down.
Total Angelina pout on me. I have pretty pigmented lips and this covers that well. I tried to resist buying this and find dupes, but I'm glad I have it now.
Love this color. I love darks in general but black can look a bit goth on me so this is a perfect compromise. Very shiny even without a topcoat and looks great even on my little nubs of nails.
