Great product. This is my first white nail polish and I don't think I will need to try anything else. It applies smoothly and opaque in two coats. I'm not having any issues with the consistancy like previous reviewers. I knocked off one lippy because there was minimal bubbling, the handle is a bit stout and a little difficult to use, and there is no steel ball to mix the polish. Other than that, I'm pleasantly surprised with it. For under two dollars the quality can't be beat.
This is a great foundation for problematic skin because it covers color inconsistencies and does not add to any issues you may have with acne. It is full coverage and dries to a semi-matte finish on my oily skin. If you have oily skin like me, you will probably need to use a setting powder. The only reason I knocked a lippy off is because I am using an acne medication that leaves dry patches on my skin and this foundation really highlights them. Other than that, it's great and I'd recommend it to anyone looking to conceal noticeable flaws they don't like.

Absolutely amazing for the price. Looks great layered over an array of colors or used in between jelly polish layers.
Another home run for OPI. This gorgeous shade is a light, subtle pink with shimmer. Can be worn as one coat to give the nails a more professional look or layered for a deeper sparkle. My favorite way to wear this is over a light creamy pink.
This should be a staple in every girls collection. It is the perfect shade of red-orange (leaning more on the red side) to pair with a coral lip. Application is smooth and chipping is minimal for the first four or five days with a good top coat. Will repurchase again and again!
Overall this is a good palette. Not great, not terrible, just good. There are a lot of different shades to play with for an array of different looks. Neutrals for day, darker sultry colors for night, and a few bright shades thrown into the mix if you're feeling adventurous. For the most part I found the colors to be easy to work with and blend, with the exception of two or three colors. I would purchase it again, but I probably won't have to since there is a good amount of product.
This is an adorable palette. The packaging is sturdy and travel friendly. The shadows and highlighters are pigmented and all work together very well. I'm very happy that I got this as a gift, the price is a little steep but after trying it I could justify purchasing it again.

This is a very sweet scent. If you do not like very sweet scents, you will not like this. I rather like it, it is sweet but not sickeningly sweet. The lasting power is okay, maybe a couple hours.
This smells just devine. It is absolutely heavenly. It is sweet, subtle, and sexy. What's not to love? The packaging is chic and classy and the black liquid is something out of the norm. I will be using this for a long time.
The perfect blush. Works well with any skin tone and helps cheekbones look more defined. There is shimmer but it works.
Oh. My. WORD! I just got this in the mail today and I can honestly say I am in love with it already. The holographic glitter is like nothing I have ever seen before. It is breathtakingly gorgeous. It changes from red to orange to gold to green to blue on the dark plum color I have it layered over. I'm sure the colors would have different effects over different polishes, I can't wait until next week to try it over my Mermaid's Tears polish. It looks even more amazing with my Siche Vite top coat over it. Best six dollars I have ever spent.
This stuff is nice until it starts to dry out your lips. They put something in it to dry your lips out so you have to keep reapplying and repurchasing it. Do yourself a favor and steer clear of it.

I'm writing a review for Amsterdam. The color is a lovely rosy nude. The lasting power is great, it stays for a few hours on me when layered over a moisturizing balm. I use a balm underneath because the formula can be a bit drying. I love the cooling sensation that it gives. The packaging is sleek and stylish, I like that it is a twist up product. I first received this as a sample from Sephora and after using it a couple of times I ran back to the store and purchased the full size.
Makeup Brushes -Ulta - Tapered Crease Eyeshadow Brush

I got really lucky and got this brush on sale for 4 bucks. It is perfect for blending out harsh lines, getting into the corners of your eyes, defining your crease, and so much more. It is easily my favorite brush that I own. The hairs on it are really soft and I've washed it a couple times without losing any fibers. Do yourself a favor and check out the clearance section at ULTA, you might find one if these little gems there.
This product along with a meticulous skin care routine has saved my skin. After moving to a very humid climate, my usually clear skin broke out in cystic acne. It was painful, humiliating, and very gross. I had about twelve cysts on each cheek. After battling the acne with every over the counter treatment I could find without results, I went to the doctor. He gave me a years supply of this wonderful creation. Thankfully my insurance covered it because I know this stuff is not cheap. I've been using it faithfully for about five months and I'm very happy to say the terrible cysts that once plagued my face are gone. It took a very long time for them to disappear, and I have a lot of hyperpigmentation in the spots that they used to be, but the acne itself is gone and I am so happy for that. The dark spots will fade with time, I'm not too worried about them because my MAC Studio Fix powder covers them pretty well. The trick to get this stuff to work is to just stay consistent with it. It may take you months to see results, but they will happen eventually. You have to be patient. My nightly routine is to cleanse my face with LUSH's Herbalism, tone with LUSH's Tea Tree Water, moisturize with LUSH's Vanishing Cream, and wait about a half an hour before I apply my Retin-a all over my face and neck. If you suffer from severe acne like I did there is hope! I had almost given up and was just going to accept the fact that I was going to have to live the rest of my adult life with cystic acne, and I am so glad I went to my doctor and talked to him about it. Don't accept your acne! Don't settle with so-so cleansers that don't get the job done! You deserve clear skin and confidence. Do yourself a favor and ask about this medication. It could change your life!
