If I thought Lip injection was bad this is FAR worse! The pain was too much. I do have to admit though, the plumping action and change in lip color was far more dramatic as well. For the $$$ and actual plumping action, I would have to say that this is the best plumper on the market.
Can we say ouch! But if women couldn't feel pain in a lip plumper would they think it worked well? I have to say no (me included)! Once the pain subsides this is a FANTASTIC plumper. Much better than Du Wop, City Lips, Lip Fusion and philosphy's plumper. The colors that they provide are not too flattering, but the clear one is well worth the $$$.
I am a big fan of Stila, but think their lipglazes are just like any other lipgloss in that horrendous tube. Minus the wider color selection, Stila lipglaze just doesn't impress me. I do have to say vanilla and berry are the only ones that I could imagine myself buying, but that was IF all my other favorite lipglosses were discontinued and companies started selling waxy tasting glosses!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this product. For $.99 it is a STEAL! I use charcoal just about everyday. I am a BIG eyeliner freak and love chanel, delux and benefit, but when it comes to a liner that I can just use and abuse and not worry about losing it, this works like a charm. If you have ever tried a dirt cheap liner and thought it was the crappiest thing on earth (believe me there are MANY out there), please think it over one more time and try this out. You will not regret it!

Even though the packaging broke 1-2-3 I LOVE the color of this blush. I am quite fair with a bunch of red undertones and this blush gives me the perfect peach color that I never thought would work (i had mostly used pinks, but the red in my skin made me feel a bit clownish). It even has a hint of shine. Just be careful not to put too much - it can easily get out of hand. Also, do NOT use the brush they give unless it is an emergency. It sucks (as do most brushes that come with cosmetics)!

Matador is the most gorgeous red. I get a million compliments when I use it. During the winter it is the staple color for my nails.

One word says it all - HOT! If you want to achieve that smokey, sexy look this liner will do it. This is the blackest, black I have seen. The only complaint I have is that it needs to be reapplied to the corners of your eyes a bit as it tends to smudge. Even after that I could not part with it.

This is a great liner that is not too harsh on the eyes. It glides and smudges smoothly. Plus it does not run like other liners tend to do when applied to the rim of your eye. Tip: Use liner in the upper and lower rim of your eye for a sexy eye definer!
This is a great neutral shade for everyday. Just keep it to a minimum as it can be a bit shiny for some. Stila has great pigment and is reasonable when it comes to $$$. Can't find kitten at your local beauty counter no problem ask for sin from Urban Decay. They are basically identical. Also, be gentle with this eyeshadow as it is easy to crumble when thrown around in a makeup bag or (gasp!) dropped on the bathroon tile!!!!

This green is fantastic. It has a bunch of pigment in it and lasts forever. Mix this with some UD's vert and Chanel's green eyeliner and you are SET!
I have about 5 of these. They have a great amount of pigment and lasts a good while. The broad range of colors makes finding one that fits your complexion a cinch. Note: The gloss is not for the gloss haters of the world. It could seem a bit tacky, but tacky usually means longer lasting so beware! FYI - Pin up is absolutely lovely.

I wear tanami and have been pleasantly surprised. It has a nice amount of yellow pigment to get rid of the red tones in my skin and is not heavy at all. I have to admit that when I first used it the texture seemed a bit weird, but you get used to that.
i ABSOLUTELY LOVE this liner. When I wear it I get so many compliments. It is smooth, easy to smudge yet does not run. If you can afford to pay the $$$ then I recommend you invest it wisely in this product!!!
I love my studio fix. It gives great coverage and is easy to use for a girl who is always on the go! I think the coloring is a little off as you can sometimes see where I have applied powder to cover spots. I am definitely going to go out and by this again (one shade lighter). I even have my mom buying the stuff in batches!
