So I have very acne prone skin and have used everything from MAC to L'oreal and everything seemed to provoke a break out. A double edge sword was trying to cover up the blemishes only to find that many of these products were the cause of them. I went to Sephora and was given a sample of this stuff, I've never heard of it. I tried it for a week while attacking my acne and it worked very well for me. Awesome coverage and did not cause ANY acne. I see it didn't work for many people but I've gotten great results from it.
Polishes -Essie - Turquoise & Caicos (Resort 2010)

I just adored this color, beautiful Tiffany Blue but as stated in previous reviews- it takes A LOT of coats in order to get it right. Found it to be rather streaky and had a hard time evening it out even after a few coats. The end result seemed a little thick but looked quite beautiful. I may end up retiring T&C in lieu of the For Audrey everyone keeps raving about.
Just discovered this polish at a local CVS and it really is gorgeous. It does require more than a few coats to get a nice even color but it is such a pretty color. A staple!

Would I buy again- not no but HECK no. This was a complete waste of money. I've been using it for 2 weeks now and haven't seen a lick of difference. And what's with the four hour claim? Really? Very misleading product but don't fall for it. It simply does not do what it claims. AVOID!
one of my faves.. i wear this often.. my tube is almost gone. I'm seriously going to repurchase.
i;m totally late..just got this last week and i love it. Why have I been sleeping on this color? its the perfect sexy nude on me without looking to peachy or orangey. i love it.
i'm still not quite sure what to do with this color. very pretty green and i thought i'd use it more but i'm totally a neutral girl. call me boring i just really love the browns, beige, golds and feel those fit me best. i'm trying to change it up... i love the color hopefully ill find a way to rock it..
i do agree with another reviewer...its okay. I use it farely often and I try new ways to make it pop. its a pretty color, doesn't show up very well on me on its own but I can deal.. and it is a staple.
loves it..the perfect shimmery white. i use it practically every time. i love it.
Eye Makeup Remover -Essence of Beauty - Eye Makeup Remover Gel

HATE this...it burns the hell out of my eyes and I got the one that says "for sensitive eyes" I do make up and practice may looks on myself so a good eye make up remover is essential. I ran out of my maybelline make up remover and grabbed this one on the go a few days ago. Yes it does take of about 90% of my eye make up but it burns. my eyes get red after use. it may be just my reaction to it but def not a repurchase for me.
i just got this color today and havent quite gotten a chance to play with it. it was my choice for the B2M after seeing the reviews here. I'm NC30ish and have a weakness for baby pink and nude lips so this was a stretch for me i'm still playing with it and although it can be quite intimidating on its own.. applied with a coat of lustreglass on top of it and it really was a pretty awesome look.
Palettes -Unlisted Brand - BH Cosmetics - 120 Color Palette 1st Edition

I don't really know what to say about this palette other than it was my first one and i was excited to play around with different looks. I'm not totally in love with it like I thought I'd be but I do use it. Call me boring but I have a tendency to stay within the neutral tones and many of the ones in this palette just don't have that great of a pay off, nor does it add any 'pizazz" imo. Like when i'm running low on time i can just grab satin taupe from Mac dab it on my lid and run out. this is not so with this palette. you must blend in order to get a color that is noticeable. idk, i thought this would be the end to my eye shadow collection for some time. but i just bit the bullet and bought the mac palette.. and there's a very noticeable difference. you get what you pay for.. :)
i really love this color. i didn't really have time to play with it yesterday so i didn't get to blend it or smoke it out. i just patted some on my lids, added a bit of smolder and mascara and walked out the door. I loved the color. very pigmented and wonderful pay off.
Eye Shadow -L'Oreal - HiP Metallic Duo - Sculpted #106

this is my FAVORITE duo in the HIP line. I love it. the color is beautiful. Makes an incredible smokey eye. Platinum really disappointed me because it was misleading. this one is true to color nd very pigmented. what you see is typically what you get with this duo.
i got this recently when HIP products were buy one get one free. I'm a sucker for dramatic eyes and thought this would be indeed a great night time look. I think it was the shimmer in the black that originally caught my eye, as i'm not really a silvery glittery girl. i barely use this. The black is not as pigmented as i'd like and you def can't see that specks of shimmer that orignally caught my eye. Maybe one day it'll come in handy to have this duo but as of late, i've stayed away from it.
