i bought this bc it was buy one get one free and my normal mascara (l'oreal voluminous wasnt) so i thought why not. i actually like this mascara is plumps up my lashes and lengthens them. And btw the smell that everyone talks about is the collagen. I have a lipgloss with collagen in it and it smells exactly the same but it goes away once it dries. even though this is a good mascara im too loyal to my l'oreal voluminous! but hey i got it 2 for one so what more can you ask for. overall in a pinch i would buy again does a great job.
i didnt buy this when it first came out because i didnt want to buy into all the hype of the hello kitty line. all i can say now is i wish i would have because i am now OBSESSED with this lipstick. i am a nc 20 for comparison and have dark hair and light eyes and this doesnt wash me out or make me look like im dead or anything like that. its the perfect shade of pale lavender and let me tell you i was NEVER a lavender lipstick girl, i was never really a lipstick girl at all because my lips are already so pigmented i never bothered with anything but chapstick. But now i am proud to say that i am an advid lipstick person now. i went to my mac counter the other day and they happened to have alot of the lipstick for the HK collection left so i got big bow and fashion mews and i loved it so much that i went back and bought 2 more!! if you can get your hands on this at the cco or your mac counter get it!! its worth every penny!!!

i bought this foundation because i needed a darker foundation ( since it's summer and i get really tan) but i didnt want to pay alot of money for it. my sister and i used to use this when we were younger and just stopped over the years. i love this foundation, it's lightweight and gives good coverage and doesnt feel thick. i did notice after about 4 hours i got a little oily around my nose but that is ok because i live in a VERY humid climate and i have oily skin anyways. so i would just say to have a powder on hand for touch ups when you get oily and your good to go! overall a great foundation for the price. EDIT: after trying this foundation for a while now i LOVE it. i have super oily skin and i live in a humid climate and this stays on longer than my revlon colorstay. it gives a matte finish and is long wearing. don't know why i ever stopped using this. i prefer this over my chanel pro lumiere and this is a fraction of the cost!! hah go figure.
I just popped into mac today not really intending to buy anything but i wanted to check out the new a rose romance collection and i saw the lipsticks. At first my eye was drawn to the other shades but they didnt seem like anything new or exciting just another nude pink. Then i decided to try this lipstick and i absolutely LOVED it. I call it my "mature" lipstick. It will be the perfect color for a night out with cat eyes and this lipstick but also you can put on a light coat and its perfect for a pollished day look! I normally never go near dark colors but i thought why not? and it totally paid off. I have a very light skin tone and hazel eyes and it looks great!! would def recommed this and want to go buy like ten of these for backup!!
i can't rave enough about this mascara. i dont know what i've done without it all these years. i have tried every brand out there from the cheapest to the most expensive and i LOVE this mascara. just the other day i was going out and my sister asked if i had fake eyelashes on and i told her it was this mascara. it really makes your eyelashes fuller and longer. this is my HG mascara.!!!

so i've been lookign for a new foundation lately and just cant seem one i like. i want good coverage but not have it feel heavy but also for it to last all day. we'll let me tell you how pleaseantly surprised i was by this product. it glides on so smoothly and evenly and matches my skin perfectly. i just swip it along my cheeks, nose, forehead, and chin and then blend it in with a brush and its awesome!! its perfect for everyday wear.not thick feeling or oily. love it!!!! will def buy again EDIT:after a while it became too thick and it felt like i had a mask on and i hated that almond smell it didnt go away. i wont be buying this again!
