It's a really pretty coral colour, nice for the summer and very flattering on asian skin tones. The scent is fruity and nice too. The thing that really bothers me is the golden glitter in it - it makes the texture a bit more grittier than normal JT's. So if you don't mind glitter you will love this! But it's the one factor that won't make me repurchase.
Lip Liners -Rimmel - Exaggerate Full Color Lip Liner in Eastend Snob
januaryicecream 5/25/2009 8:22:00 PM
Beautiful nude pink lip liner. Wish it came in a lipstick. The colour is very wearable and evens out the lip colour. I use it all over my lips. Absolutely LOVE the colour. I don't use lipsticks at all but I love this lip liner. Definetly worth the buy =)
The colours in this colour corrector palette are excellent (green to counteract red, salmon for under the eyes, yellow for under the eyes and lavender for highlighting) but I find the staying power is very weak. Also, the creamy texture dries out quickly in the winter and is really difficult to apply.
I bought the Annabelle SkinTrue Concealer palette and I love it. The formula is really creamy and it doesn't dry out as quickly as other brands. I don't use the white illuminator because the consistency of it is too dry but the coloured concealers are creamy and rich. The staying power is excellent and so is the coverage =) I was really surprised by the quality of this product especially since it's only around $6. Will definitely buy again =)
A great black eyeshadow! I find that the pigmentation is great and it's so versatile. Not only can you create a smoky look but you can also use it to line your eyes. Definitely worth the dollar despite it not being firmly packed very well.
The perfect neutral light brown shade with just the right amount of silver shimmer. The pigmentation of this eyeshadow is great! Despite not being packed very well, I use it everyday and I would definitely recommend this!
I've been looking for just the right shade of blue-ish purple for me and I found it with E.L.F! This eyeshadow is very decently pigmented and is a mix of purplish-blue and just the right amount of silver shimmer in it =) It's definitely worth the dollar despite not being firmly packed.
A metallic green with just the right amount of golden shimmer. I love this eyeshadow because it actually (surprisingly) has very decent pigmentation! However it's not very firmly pressed so it does make a little mess when you dip your brush into it. Despite that, it's definitely worth the dollar because of it's pretty colour and amazing pigmentation.
I was pleasantly surprised with this eyeshadow! The pigmentation is great and I use it all the time for a highlight! It's a really nice white (not too shimmery) eyeshadow that truly brightens your eyes. Only drawback is that it's not very firmly packed, so just softly dipping your brush into it generates a lot of product that's a little messy. But despite that, a great highlighter with *very decent pigmentation. Definitely worth the dollar.
Lip Gloss -Bonne Bell - Lip Lites- Berry 'nilla Creme

I love this lip lite in berry 'nilla creme =) It is so creamy and conditioning and it just feels so smooth on your lips. And the best part? It's not sticky at all but it still gives you that glossy appearance that you want =) Plus, the smell of it is heavenly - truly a mixture of vanilla and berries, super yummy =) I don't own a single nude lipstick because I find that they're too dramatic and overpowering but this lip lite has become my one and only perfect nude lipgloss! It still allows your natural colour to come out but it adds *just the right amount of nude to your lips so that it tones down your lips to a flattering shade of nude =) I LOVE It! I definitely definitely recommend this =)
I love love love lip lites from Bonnebell! This flavour of mocha mousse is a brownish pink lip gloss that smells of heavenly mocha! I love that it's not sticky at all! And the pigmentation is just perfect - not too overpowering but still a touch of colour to your lips. It looks really natural and you can wear it everyday. And the feeling of it is so smooth and creamy and conditioning - I stocked up on these! I definitely definitely recommend this! Although you *do have re-apply because the staying power isn't that great, it feels heavenly when you apply so it doesn't feel like a chore at all =)
This is my little secret weapon. I never wear lip glosses because I find that they are just too sticky and I don't like the way they feel on my lips. But this is such an exception. I LOVE this lip gloss. It's not too sticky, it feels so smooth on my lips and the pigmentation is very decent for a drug store brand =) I use it everyday and I've been using it for years =) Definitely a permanent staple in my makeup bag. I love it =) This colour is a soft shimmery pink that's really creamy.
The shiny black material is really flimsy, thin, creases easily, scratches easily, and is just super poor quality. The bag is also really really big! It's the width of a binder! So it's hard to carry anywhere.
Misc Beauty Tools -E.L.F. - Signature case - Black

I actually really really like this signature makeup bag from E.L.F. I got it in black (not the shiny black but just the normal black - the shiny metallic material is really thin, creases easily, and is very very poor quality). I love this makeup bag. It has 2 zippered compartments. The first compartment gives you 4 slots for brushes on the one side with an elastic to keep them down and a mesh pouch on the other. The 2nd zippered compartment is just storage for your makeup essentials. Plus, there's a mirror attached inside too! I was pleasantly surprised with this bag because I also got their Organizer bag in metallic black and it is horrible. However this signature bag is just the perfect size and really travel friendly. I definitely definitely recommend this bag! I love it =)
Misc Beauty Tools -E.L.F. - Lip Liner & Blending Brush
januaryicecream 2/4/2009 9:22:00 PM
This is part of their studio line. On one side, there's a lip liner (I got mine in Natural) and the other side, there's a lip blending brush. I have to say, I actually really really like this product. The blending brush is so soft and works really really well. The lip liner is kinda stiff but if you apply a lip balm or gloss first and then use the lip liner, it's a little easier to use. Plus, the lip liner is retractable which is great. I really like this product and I would definitely recommend it!
