This is the best mascara i've ever used. Unlike maximeyes, this one didn't smudged a lot. Also made my lashes more thicker and longer than maximeyes, which i was thinking as best mascara before diorshow, lol. Definitely my HG and i recommend this mascara to all my friends. This is pricey but believe me it worths. Will definitely repurchase.
I've fine hair and can be easily get oily by wrong products. This one is great for me! It moisturizes my hair even if i don't use conditoner but still makes my hair soft and shiny. Smell is gorgeous! Has thick consistency, so i mix with water in my hand first and then apply it my hair. i'm in love with this product. my HG!
Don't be shy is a girly bubble gum *pink* color with no lavender or mauve tones in it. Packaging is very cute:) i use it alone to pop my cheeks or use this on top of bronzer that looks much better for my NW15-20 skin.
If what you looking for is orange with gold sheen, this is it. Pairing with coppers, yellows, golds look gorgeous! Definitely i'd buy again if it wasn't LE.
Makeup Brushes -MAC - #187 Duo Fiber Face Brush (Stippling, Skunk Brush)

I resisted to buy 187 brush for so long!! i was thinking normal blush brushes also can do light application if i use small amount of product. but in fact they weren't:) this brush makes bronzers and pigmented blushes look beautiful and gives air brushed look that i love most about 187. i also have PD Fan brush for light application, but this one is much easy to apply pigmented blushes and bronzers to use as a blush. Fan brush is better for contouring and highlighting. anyways i gotta say this, this brush is good for pigmented blushes like Nars, Mac and others, but imho this brush is not for Nars O., because O. is less pigmented than other Nars blushes and 187 picks less product.
Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eyeliner Gel Graphic Brown [DISCONTINUED]

Color is rich warm brown with metallic sheen. This is the best brown eyeliner i've ever used!! I use it with 263 brush, gb's texture is great and easy to line/smudge. i purchased this on ebay and paid more than it retails, but i'm glad i did. wish it wasn't LE. Would buy it again!
Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eyeliner Gel Macroviolet

Fluidlines are my fave e/l's so far. They're easy to apply and their lasting power is incredible. Macroviolet is shimmery dark violet color but imo the texture is different than other f/l's. This one is not smooth like others and i've to apply over and over to see a dark violet shade(like it's not pigmented well like others). But it still is beautiful:) Anyways i don't think i'll repurchase.
Greenplay is a yellow-green with slightly gold shimmers. I'm NW15 with dark hair and brown eyes. i only use it for lining my lower lashline and looks fab! Doesn't look great on the upper lashline though. It's easy to take off with Lancome Bi-facil. When applying lashline it smears lashes, and it's hard to take off only from lashes, that's why i take off one lippie.
This is the only e/s that i purchased from Barbie collection. It's a greyish brown color with blue/lavender sheen. I'm NW15-20 with brown eyes and dark brown hair. Sometimes i use it alone to all my lid with a black smudged eyeliner, inmo great for day time smokey eyes. Combining with blues/teals looks great also. I would buy it again.
Makeup Brushes -MAC - 263 Small Angle (Ox & Synthetic hair)

I love to do my eyeliner thinner, but a little thicker at the end with wings. And this is best for what i want. it's easy to apply with fluidlines, 266 is thicker than this one that's why i chose 263.
I was in Mac store looking for brushes, MA told me this one was his favourite, he was using this for liquid and powder fndt application(for full coverage). I don't need any full coverage so i passed that day. Then i read the reviews here and i bought this one for blusher(cream/powder) and bronzer application. It's like a small kabuki brush, you can buff the product into your skin. My cheeks look fabolous with this brush! i buff blushers, highlighters, bronzers into my skin, gives glowy natural look. i couldn't apply Nars O. well with my Versace blush brush(it wasn't impressive looking), but this one with buffing in, makes O. look like inner glow, gorgeous! I also use this for cream blushes, and it blends well into my skin, buffing again:) I would repurchase definetely this brush and even thinking of getting one more:D
This is my staple in my everyday mu. color is light beige with fine shimmers. it prevents creasing, e/s looks more vibrant and helps e/s stay longer on lids. be careful about applying less product, because it'll make crease more. i'll repurchase.
i'm NW15, i purchased this color for highlighter but it doesn't suit me, it's more like a blush.For me, it's great for a non-shimmery blush to make it shimmery&glowy. Has lots of shimmers which i love. imo if you're not very fair, and if you like shimmery&glowy skin, this would look great for you as highlihter above cheekbones.
If you want a true gold e/s with lots of shimmer, this is it. But it didn't suit my coloring, i'm PPP with pink undertones. I won't repurchase and swapped this away.
Light silver with lots of shimmer. i like to combine it with blues, or when i want a smokey eye. Pigmented, blending is easy and winner from Stila, as i don't like their e/s very much.
