THESE ARE MY FAVORITE GREYS! I purposely wrote twenty reviews just to put this item on the menu. It's unfortunate that Biotherm isn't a hugely popular make up brand, because they produce some GREAT shadows! This is most definitely my favorite shadow.
Eye Shadow -Sephora - Glitter All Over Color Palette Shades of Brown

It's okay...the colors are pretty, but application and staying power aren't that impressive. If you're looking for a shimmery brown look, I suggest Smashbox Eyelights in Beam. Gorgeous colors!
LOVE IT! I used to use Dior brow pencils, thinking that the pricier they are, the better it is. (I was in junior high and didn't know any better) But after almost a decade, I love my drug store brow pencils!
I don't like lipglosses that don't have a wand, because I find it inconvenient. Not only that, but Juicy Tubes are thick and gooey and they stick to your hair. The color is cute, though.
LOVE IT! I have this in Ultra-Chill, and it goes GREAT with my MAC Eyeshadow in Aquadisiac.
Although it smells pretty good, the color isn't the most flattering (especially on my medium skin). It tends to be goopy, but not as bad as the Juicy Tube.
Powder -Bare Escentuals - Bare Minerals Foundation #2

I love this foundation, because I tend to get super oily when it comes to liquid foundations. However, it tends to set on my skin and look blotchy, so don't apply too much. Use the concealer brush wisely, and you'll be fine. And again, LESS IS MORE when it comes to Bare Escentuals!
Powder -Bare Escentuals - Feather Light Mineral Veil

I love this product. It's so light and completely sheer, and I feel so fresh after applying it. Since I tend to be on the olier side, I apply it before AND after applying foundation (Bare Escentuals, of course!). Try it -- you'll love it.
I don't use this as a lip brush, because it's a FANTASTIC concealer brush! Also, it works wonders when I want to dab some shimmer powder along my lower lashline for a fresh look during the holidays.
Mascara -Maybelline - Great Lash Mascara Blackest Black

I don't know why magazines call this the "drugstore secret," but this mascara is horrible! The brush doesn't deliver what it's supposed to do, and the formula is super wet and loose. It doesn't lengthen, curl, volumize, or even COAT my lashes. One thing I would use it on is for lower lashes that need minimal attention.
Highlighters -BeneFit Cosmetics - Gilded [DISCONTINUED]

I love this product. When applied under the brow bone, it makes one look much more awake and fresh. My favorite look is Smashbox Eyelights in Beam with some highlighting done by this product. GORGEOUS!
Eyeliner -Smashbox - Cream Eyeliner in Smashing Caviar

When I was sixteen, I saw this product on QVC and thought it was just for me. A girlfriend got it for me on my birthday, but it was a HUGE dissapointment! First of all, the brush (that you have to buy separately), is completely useless. Although it goes on smoothly, as soon as you open your eyes, it gets erased. It's literally been sitting in my make up drawer for years, collecting dust.
Lip Gloss -Estee Lauder - Pure Color Gloss- Star Pink

This gloss is GREAT for that make up artist trick to make your lips plumper. After applying another colored (darker) gloss, use this on the bow of your lips to accent and highlight. For a finishing touch, always apply a clear gloss. Hello~ Angelina lips! :)
Who doesn't love a MAC shadow? (Even though I've had my few nono's, I'm impressed with most of the shadow line). This color is the cutest green, and when used the right way, it'll do wonders for your eyes. It goes on smooth, and doesn't crease.
Eye Shadow -Smashbox - Eyelights Eye Shadow Trio - Flash

I actually have this product in "Beam," and it's the BEST brown I've ever used! To be honest, I don't find too much use for the middle shade, but the other two work WONDERS. ALWAYS work them together (not by blending, but lighter on the bottom and darker on top), because I always used to get compliments (I'm saying USED to, because I ran out of it and haven't found the time to go shopping). I've used this since my junior year in high school, and it's still my favorite brown. Also, the application is flawless and staying power is great. Go and get it!
