I know jewel blue has gotten some bad reviews, but I love it! I've found the texture looks great with shimmery shades, like Going Bananas from C-shock LE MAC collection. I've found that packing the color onto my 217 brush and swirling it in the lid gets the color into the brush well, and then is easier to apply. Since it is such a bright color, I like to make a small triangle shape in the corner and blend in. The shade is a little hard to work with, but if you play with it a bit, you can find a good way to apply it.
Lip Gloss -MAC - Tendertone Lip Balm SPF12 - Pucker

Pucker is my favorite tendertone. The color gives a nice pop to the lips without being overbearing when worn alone. Also, its great to mix with other colors. I wear it a lot with No Peeking The Gloss from Benefit and and Plink! lustre lipstick from MAC. The combination makes a really pretty pink color on the lips.
Love this lotion! The smell is just right. If anyone remembers Bath and Body Works Tutti Dolci lotion in Angel Food Cake, this is a very similar scent. Sadly the B&B lotion is discontinued, so I was excited to find something similar! The lotion feels good on the skin and the scent isn't crazy over powering. Will buy again!
I am in love with this product! I can't go a day without putting it on. I however have not tried it with foundation. I have pretty even skin and do not break out often, so I usually do not wear a base. My t-zone gets pretty oily, so I just apply this to my forehead, nose, and chin and it keeps my face from getting oily all day. On hot days, I do carry it in my purse to touch up later. From what other reviewers have said, the product is great with foundation too. The price is a bit high for such a small tube, but a little goes a long way. My first tube lasted almost a whole year! I would recommend this to anyone with oily skin!
I was really excited about buying this lipgloss at sephora but the gloss is a total disappointment! The color is so pretty in the tube but when its on my lips, you can barely see it. The gloss is so thin that it only last for a few minutes and not worth the price! I will not buy it again.
I love this blush! The shimmery gold pink color is great for my skin color. I use it everyday and its great for the summer. I often pair it with my NARS bronzer and the combination is AMAZING. I would recommend this blush to anyone, even though its a bit pricey. Its worth it.
Mascara -Shu Uemura - Mascara Basic [DISCONTINUED]

This is the best mascara i have ever used! I've been using it for years now, and i love it. It makes my lashes look very natural but defined and i've never had a problem with smudging. The only problem i've run into is that it dries up quickly, but still works great even when a little dry.
