I love this scent, a nice sweet grown up Vanilla. I get soo many compliments on this when I wear it. I find it has pretty good lasting power as well.
I have this powder in citrus because I have combination skin and I am prone to breakouts. I really like it alot, I am going on my 6th powder. I think it mattifies and controls oil better than MAC blot powder (which is what I used prior to this). The smell is not overpowering, just nice. My only complaint is the sifter holes, they get clogged easily- but other than that- I love it!

Overall I like this product.I am pretty fair and this matches my skin nicely.I don't think it does much to fill in lines but it makes a great undereye concealer or brow highlighter. I also like the packaging, it can be used for on the go touch- ups.

I am really liking this cleanser.It has 2% sal. acid and gentle buffing beads.It cleans without stripping or drying the skin.I have been using this for 2 weeks now and my skin looks clearer and more radiant.
I really like this shadow.I have sandy gold, a soft beige shimmer.I use it as a base alot of times.Lasts all day long and dosen't crease.
I wanted to like this primer, but I didn't.It felf heavy and greasy when I applied it and made my face feel gross all day.I have combination skin, perhaps this would work better for drier types.
I really like this.I put 2 coats and it looks rich and shiny.I think it looks closer to black rather than burgundy once it's on but very nice.
This is a pretty good mineral foundation.Goes on to give a natural looking glow and dosen't break me out.You also get quite a bit of product for the $$.

This is definitely my HG mascara.I have tried alot or mascaras and this one performs.It goes on nice and lush for that dramatic look day or night.It dosen't get clumpy or flake off, what more can I say.Also the packaging is luxe..
This stuff is ok.I didn't love it but didn't hate it.It looks pretty good when you first apply it, however as the day goes on I feel like it starts to look cakey and shiney.Also after a few months the product seems to dry out a little and comes out a little thick and clumpy.

This is one of the best concealers I have used.I have tried everything from Cle de Peau to Neutrogena.I have medium dark circles and sensitive eyes and it covers well.This glides on smoothly, hardly creases and lasts all day for me.

I really love this lip balm!It smells so sweet and goes on nice and heavy.It works great for chapped lips or just keeping your lips soft and full.A little pricy but worth it.

I really like this cream.I was breaking out terribly so after reading the reveiws I swapped for a tube.I have been using for about a week now and my skin is softer and has definitely helped to clear up my blemishes.It has not caused any additional breakouts so far.I also notice that my face looks less oily throughout the day.You do have to be a little careful not to pile too much cream on because it can tend to feel heavy.Just a few pea sized drops is all you need.

I have to sway.I really like the smell of this fragrance, a nice soft musky vanilla.However, after spraying it on my skin the smell seems to vanish within an hour or so.For the price, 42$ for .5oz, I expected a little more lasting power from this.
I have the frost l/s in Magnolia and I think the is HG material.The texture is so soft, it goes on beautifully with minimal risk of feathering (even w/ out a liner) and it lasts well throughout the day.I love how it dosen't have much of a smell either, it has just the right combination of everything.I also like most of the other colors in this formula, very natural.love it!
