I bought this on sale in the fall so I haven't worn it yet...it's very tropical and beachy. I loved rockin rio so I had to have this as well. It's very fruity and sweet...just think of a pina colada/daquiri/orangey/caramel blend. Mmmm...

I received this as a sample tube. It feels like putting olive oil on your hands. I don't mind it; The smell is light and not very sweet like lemon meringue or anything. The full size bottle sells for $32 though...no thanks.
I love love this color. It is a creamy, extremely dark eggplant color that looks *almost* black. It's perfect for the winter. I'm fairly pale and it doesn't make my cuticles look red like most dark colors.
Polishes -Chanel - Le Vernis Nail Colour in Vamp #18

I bought Vamp in October. It's not as dark as I would like it to be but it's still a nice color. It's very sparkly, not what I expected. It's definitely not matte.
I bought this at Sephora this past weekend and I liked it because of the shine factor. It is the shiniest lip gloss I have ever used. The pink is not striking unless you pile it on. Otherwise, it's very sheer. The lasting power is the only thing that's lacking. I found myself reaching for it every half hour. The texture is not sticky at all and tingles your lips with a minty sensation. I think I may just use it for special occassions as there doesn't seem to be a lot of product for your money--$18. Overall, I love it.
I am on my third tube of Diorshow mascara. The first one I bought was Noir in waterproof. It lasted a long time, made my lashes look ridiculously full and I loved it. I bought a second tube--not waterproof--and it dried up within two months. Also, the wand broke and I was hugely dissapointed by it. After experimenting with other brands for the past year, I broke down and bought another tube of this last week and so far so good. I did not buy waterproof again so I am waiting to see how long this will last in the tube without drying up.
I love this lip gloss. It tastes sweet, like cherry pepto bismol, lol, but it's not gross or anything. It's super shiny and has just a hint of pink so it's fine for layering or wearing alone. I bought a Dior Kiss tube in 2004 and I still have a bit left so I imagine this will last a long time as well.
Liquid -Chanel - Teint Fluide Universel [DISCONTINUED]

I splurged on this foundation a year ago and I thought the color recommended to me (Shell) was a bit pale so I didn't wear it very often (though it looked good in the store) but I started using it again recently. I like the dewiness this foundation leaves behind and it never looks cakey or like I'm wearing a lot of makeup. However, I have to reapply a couple of times throughout the day because it does seem to settle into your pores. I probably wouldn't buy it again but as long as I have it, I'll use it. Also, the brush that came with it leaves brush strokes on my face--weird--so I've been using a sponge which is messy.
