They really get you with the name. I was looking for an inexpensive highlight color. I love MAC Phloof! but was hoping to find an alternative that was easier on my wallet. This shadow is not as smooth as what I come to expect with NYX. It's a chunky mess. NOT my favorite color.
I get so many compliments on my naturally HORRIBLE patchy eyebrows and this is my secret. I outline the top and bottom of each brow with this using a thin angeled eyeliner brush. I then take an angeled brow brush and fill in with an eyeshadow such as MAC Charcoal brown. It creates a crisp, angled brow that I am just unable to achieve with a pencil or eyeshadow alone. Love. LOVE. LOOOOVE!!!
Gels/Soaps -Olay - Ribbons Body Wash with Jojoba Butter Ribbons

This product claims to be great when used as an alternative to shave gel. DON"T DO IT! The thick waxy film will clog an ruin your razor.
Bought this at Ulta, tried it on, hated it, walked back in and returned it. Just looked like unflattering frost.
Who knows how many of these I have been through. I have explored other highlight colors but I always come back to this. It catches light so beautifully. I use it right under the brow and in the inner corners.
Ugh this is the greasiest foundation. I didn't notice it so much until I looked into my magnified mirror and wow it literally looked like I had slime streaked on my face. I can't seem to find the right application either. Tried my fingers, a foundation brush, and stippling. Everthing looked streaky. And it just feels so wet! I have to set it with powder to cut down the grease-ball look. And of coarse the lasting power is almost non-existant. To top it all off, the pour-bottle packaging just sucks.
So recently Pur Minerals re-vamped this foundation and the packaging. I vowed not to re-purchase because it irritated my skin and the coverage was nothing great. But I was in Ulta a month and a half ago looking for a foundation and one of the sales rep's foundation looked awesome and she said it was Pur's NEW and Improved foundation. She agreed that the previous version was inferrior but swore this new formulation gave better coverage with less irritating ingrediants. So I reluctantly gave it another shot. I reallyy, really liked it! It didn't break me out, and I got the chisel brush as a FGWP, and I am glad because none of my other kabukis or mineral brushes worked quite right with this. There is one little catch. If I remember correctly, this retails around $30, and just 2 weeks into using it, I already had hit pan. A month and a half later...I only have a small sliver of this stuff left. Yep, it's almost COMPLETELY gone. So I am faced with the decision of re-purchasing the foundation that actually treats my skin right after YEARS of looking meanwhile forking out $30 every 6 weeks or continuing my search.
Oh gosh I love this! It just compliments my skin, eyes, hair, everything! Its a subdued pinky, purple that I can get away with wearing everyday without the porn-star-bubblegum-lip look.
Oh man, I waited MONTHS for someone to have this in stock in store or online! Couldn't believe people were selling them on Amazon for $100!!!! But I am so so happy I finally got ahold of it. The colors are beautiful. Wish there were more matte colors personally, but that is just because I am on a matte-kick at the moment. love love LOVE this pallet. And really a great deal for the amount of poduct you get. I didn't cringe at all forking over 50 bucks for it!
I am convinced that every batch is different with this stuff. I want mine to turn out like the big chunks but I always end up with thin streaky chunks which isn't cute! I am aware that there are different techniques for applying this but it seems like everything I do ends with the same disapointing result. I am jealous of you girls who make it work!
Thought this was going to be a dupe for blankety. So NOT! It looks sooo unflattering on my fair skin. Its just disgusting.
To get to the point this is the most pigmented matte white eyeshadow I have used. Its amazing.
I really like this stuff! You only need a small amount. In fact, if you over-do it you risk looking very ghostly because it can cause a green cast to the face. I also use it after my primer and before my normal concealer and foundation. I have tons and tons of redness and this totaly evens my skin tone! I love it!
Lipstick -Revlon - Super Lustrous Lipstick in Berry Haute

Total dupe for my MAC Up the Amp but Blue undertones help reduce yellow teeth which is great. Revlon lipsticks are awesome.
I was really excited when I got this. Then I brought it home and realized it is an exact dupe for my Revlon's Berry Haute which is less than half the price. Great color though. But if you are thinking about getting this, save the money and get the Revlon lipstick.
