Eyeliner -NYX - Liquid Crystal Liner - Crystal Champagne

I like this better than the other liquid glitter liners I have tried by Urban Decay and MAC. Interestingly I have very sensitive eyes and this has not bothered my lids at all. I will definitely be purchasing more colors.
I have found essence products in general to be great, and the gel liners are no exception. They can substitute for pretty much any of the big names that carry a gel eyeliner, for a much better price. I hope essence is able to grow without getting too expensive, because they are the best discount makeup there is.
Polishes -Wet 'n' Wild - Nail Color in Sparked / # 435F

This is a great pink glitter to put over your nail polish. I wear it with so many things, it especially looks good over a white matte (I only get matte because it dries faster and goes on better than any regular white polish I've found, I like Revlon's Powder Puff) but it's especially cute over pinks and purples too. I use 100% acetone to remove it (and all glitter polish) and it's no problem at all. I used to avoid glitter just because removing it was such a pain, the pure acetone makes it quick and easy.

Ooooh MG this stuff stung my eyes and skin. It did take off the makeup though, that's why I gave it 2 lippies instead of one. Also it does have cute, smart packaging. On the other hand, this smells so strongly of alcohol it could drive a sober person straight back to drinking. I will definitely not buy this again, in fact I am debating whether or not to return this bottle.
Lip Treatments -Neosporin - Lip Health Daily Hydration Therapy Suncreen SPF 20

I don't know if it was the price or because it works that I have actually continued to keep putting this on instead of having it land in the bottom of some drawer after about a week. My lips get really dry in winter and even start to crack in the corners (painful) and as long as I use this that doesn't happen. Doesn't have a gross taste or smell like Blistex and Chapstik, or the waxy texture. I'm sure I'll buy this again, but I'll get it at Target or Walmart where it's about $2 cheaper than it is at Walgreens.
This is the OPI shade I've had the longest. I also use it to layer over other polishes. I receive so many compliments on it each time I have it on. The glittery is very tiny so I don't think it's immature looking at all (not that that would stop me anyway) and I think it looks especially nice layered over a nice neutral polish. I put it over Chi's Risque Lingerie most often. I have purchased probably 3 other brands that are near dup's, and normally I prefer China Glaze or Sinful Colors over all other polish, but with this one, OPI does it best.
I might not need to but if something happened to this bottle I would purchase it again! This color is so cute. I got it in a holiday pack with a candle and a green glittery color "Mistletoe Kisses". Mrs. Claus looks red but on my toes it almost looks like a pinky-red, maybe kind of like a raspberry color. It's very cute. Hasn't chips, but it's on my toes so that doesn't mean much yet. I will probably try it on my fingers in the next week or two. This is a really cute, fun Christmas color.
My new HG mascara. Sometimes I layer it, most of the time I don't. I've tried a million mascaras (both HE and DS) and my HG has changed a few times. I don't see that happening again. I can't imagine finding something that works better for me than this does. Actually I'm not even going to try.
This is definitely one of the more sheer colors, but it is very pretty if you have the time and patience. I am doing a test right now on how many coats I need. 3 is good enough for me but 4 (and I did a pretty heavy handed 4th coat) looks like it does in the bottle. It's pretty much hit or miss with these colors but others (ex: Folly) have awesome coverage, 2 coats is perfect and you could even skate by with one if you were in a hurry. This is not a shimmery color but if you like glitter the color Frenzy goes over this beautifully.
I love Sinful Colors nail polish. I think it's better than almost every high end polish and their color selection is amazing. I can not manage to leave a Walgreens without a new color of this polish. Yes, sometimes I do have to do 3 coats for full coverage, but I have that issue with some of my OPIs and MAC polishes, so it doesn't bother me. I haven't had the issues with chipping that others have mentioned either.
I am so glad I found this. I had my HG hairspray, but after moving from Los Angeles to Minnesota I could no longer find it. Thanks to Elnett, problem solved! I have thick, heavy hair that is hard to hold. This stuff allows me to get some volume, and it keeps it that way. I love it and will continue to buy it as long as it's available.
I definitely waited too long to try this mascara. I had it on my "to try" list since it first came out, and just finally got around to purchasing some. This is definitely my new favorite mascara. My straight eyelashes will not hold a curl. This mascara definitely lengthens and gives volume, it makes my eyelashes visible without even having to attempt to curl them. This is definitely going on my favorite mascara list, right at the top! **edit 12/1/10** this has been bumped down a notch or two, Maybelline's "The Falsies" is now number one.
I tried this foundation once at Sephora and didn't get what the hype was about. I recently found a sample bottle that I had thrown into my "swap extras" container and decided to take it out and try it again. I am in love!! This gives my skin a flawless look, but it's not matte, which I love!! I blend on a second "coat" where I need a little more coverage with no problem. My favorite thing about it is that it doesn't settle into the fine lines around my eyes like MAC Studio Fix Fluid does. I'll definitely be buying a whole bottle of this. I wear NW25 in MAC and this MUFE in #2 seems like a perfect match.

I love this hairspray!! Very volumizing, great hold! I have those short Bettie Page like bangs and this is the only hairspray I've found so far that keeps them in shape, I have a heck of a time with them, due to my wavy hair. I've tried a million hairsprays and this is my favorite so far. I can see where it might get a little to hard for some people, but I love the hold. I have very dark hair and I've never had a problem with flakes or white stuff showing in my hair.
Love this stuff! As other reviewers have stated, don't let the color in the tube scare you off it is much more beautiful when applied. I already bought one backup and will probably wish I had another!
