I really love this stuff! It's perfect for a very natural finish, that doesn't feel powdery or cakey. I use this in 210 everyday to set my concealer and powder my whole face, which leaves the most natural finish that I love.
Favorite polish. Ever.A very metallic silver with very faint silver shimmers in it that almost make it a foil. You won't regret purchasing this at all! I love the formula, two coats is perfection. The applicator is the perfect size, the color is true to the bottle, and it lasts forever! p.s. looks amazing in the sun
Moisturizers -Garnier - Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream

My favorite moisturizer to date. I really enjoy the cooling cucumber effect and the gel formula. It absorbs super quickly and moisturizes and quenches my dry skin. I don't mind the jar, it actually feels very high end. However, it's not very travel-friendly. Once I run out of this, I most likely will purchase the whole line.

I bought this and it was so sheer after 2-3 coats! Super disappointing after seeing all the rave reviews here! I returned it.
Eyeliner -Kat Von D - Autograph Eyeliner - Immortal Love

I love this liquid liner! It applies smoothly, last a long time, and doesn't budge! I can get a super thin line or a super thick line with this brush! Plus it's insanely saturated with pigments! Wings are really easy with this eyeliner. I got this at Sephora for $8 on sale/clearance.
Kyoto Pearl is a very sheer, frosty, pearly white. If you're looking for a one coat, opaque pearl polish then this is not it. However, I love this polish underneath my Milani Jewel FX polishes. It's the prefect base for busy designs, but I would never wear it alone. The only reason I would not buy this again is because I think there are cheaper sheer pearls out there.
For reference, I have really long, straight, stubborn lashes. I really like this mascara, however I do not think I will buy it again. While it gave my eyelashes a slight lift, it always transfers underneath my eyes and settles into the wrinkles of my eyes! I absolutely hate that! The formula is wet, but once it dries out a little, it's perfection. It does separate my lashes but they do slightly clump while drying. It's doesn't flake and it's very black, plus it holds a curl well. But the transferring breaks the deal for you And so the quest for my HG mascara continues... I'm going to try LashBlast next.
HG foundation! Do not buy if you have oily/combo skin though, this is a moisturizing foundation, which is why some people get oily during the middle of the day. I love to mix this with my moisturizer to make a tinted moisturizer!
HG scent forever. Carried Away smells like clean laundry with a hint of raspberries, and some soft florals. It doesn't smell like Sweet Pea to me, Sweet Pea for me is too sweet and overpowering. But Carried Away is the perfect everyday, fresh scent!

I love this product! It smells delicious, cleans like a dream, and makes my hair look healthy!
Makeup Brushes -Ecotools - 6 Piece Eye Brush Set (5 brushes + case)
jasminese 6/25/2011 12:44:00 AM
I love these brushes! They're great for a beginner or anyone looking for a good travel brush set! I use these as everyday brushes, not travel ones and they are so soft! I love them. My favorite brush is the thick, dense blend brush which blends like a dream! The only brush I don't like/use too much is the angled crease brush because I love my Urban Decay crease brush more! EcoTools' crease is just too big for my crease.
I use this every night! It makes my pimples heal faster, and my stubborn blackheads smaller (but not disappear). I love mixing this with my moisturizer (two thirds moisturizer, one third gel) I wish I could wear this under my makeup, but it makes my makeup ball up so one lippie off for that :(
Lotions/ Creams -Vaseline - Sheer Infusion Body Lotion
jasminese 6/17/2011 5:47:00 PM
Why all the bad reviews? I love this product! When I don't need heavy moisturizing (Nivea Creme), I use this! I mostly use it in the summer, when my skin isn't as dry. I have this in Mineral Renewal and it's the best smell in the world. The scent isn't too strong or overpowering, it's very light and fresh. Not only does this lotion smell good, it's very light texture, non-greasy, and makes my skin SUPER soft.
I ADORE this stuff! I use it as lotion after I have exfoliated in the shower. Then, I put on my warmest pajamas, and wake up with soft skin! I also use this as an eye cream, but I cannot say anything as I am still young and have no wrinkles! But better safe than sorry, y'know? The smell brings back memories because my grandma had a big jar of it sitting on her dresser. I used up a small tin of it, then became addicted! I bought a big glass jar of it (which came with a plastic top o.O) and I've used it everyday and I've barely made a dent in it! Update 7/22/11: BREAKTHROUGH! If you find this cream too thick for your face. Try sticking it in the fridge! (Long story.. but trust me it was a good mistake!) When you apply the cold cream to your face, you'll find it's a much thinner consistency and feels very cooling! Also, if youhave a terrible sunburn, try this stuff!

I didn't actually buy this, but I got a sample from Sephora. I tried it out (by itself, no powder, etc.), and my face started to itch/sting/burn around my right cheek area. I ignored it, until I was at the mall when my mom asked if I was breaking out on my cheek! I looked in a nearby mirror here was a big, red, irritated bump! I don't have sensitive skin, but for some reason this really got to me! I immediately took it off as soon as I got home, and the swelling went away. there was this funky, melon-y scent which went away quickly. packaging: ok, like a jumbo MAC paints
