This was the first lipstick that I ever bought. The texture is very nice, a gloss with a little stain. The sheer red shade was bright on me, but not orange nor pink and added color to open up my face. It applies nicely and leaves lips with a nice shine. Love the elegant slim silver packaging.

This is a very nice brown red shade for the natural look. I can't pull this color off without a lipliner because it is so warm, and barely shows up. On my complexion, this color doesn't work well, and tends darken my face more than open it up.
Have this in Smouldered Chestnut, a deep brown, and it's gorgeous. So blendable, last long, and the tip hardly ever crumbles. The sponge on the end is so incrediblely handy. I just love this product, a staple.

Have this in Espresso, a staple for me. Long wearing, creamy and blendable, and a lovely shade. The tip never crumbles and comes in a long pencil. Compare this to some higher end kohls. I use this everyday.
I have this in Mochaccino and it's a caramel, brown shade that is not dull, overpowering or plain. It's a lovely brown shade that is very moisturizing, & doesn't slip too much. It glides on evenly, no offensive smell, and has loads of pigment. Very nice subtle sheen, and wears long on with lipliner. So close to my natural lip, a staple for me. Also have this in Cherry Brown and it is a burgandy color, it's packed with so much pigment that I have to blot it a lot. Very very moisturizing and long wearing.
Lips -Maybelline - Lip Polish Hi-Shine Color in Mauve Star

I simply love this color, very wearable mauve. Very even coverage, that lasts. I haven't had problems with feathering, and the stain is gorgeous and it's packed with so much pigment that it is like a lipstick for me. Total rave.
This is creamy and wears long, will not budge at all. I have this in Caramel and it's a beautiful shade for a nude lip look in a darker shades. The color is a brown/honey with some taupe in it, a sophisticated color. Goes very well with my nude and mocha colored lipsticks. I can wear this with Maybelline Mochaccino and it looks great. Only around 5 dollars.
Love this product. Very good job at taking off makeup and leaving skin feeling clean, not tight at all. Highly recommend.
I don't like this face wash at all, it feels rough on my skin and is not as foaming as the daily facials.

A great cleanser that takes away all makeup, and leaves skin supple, very refreshed, and feels very clean. A pleasent smell.
I cannot say enough about this product -I'm on my second tube. This is a gorgeous warm red/brown/bronze with shimmer. The pigment is great, glides on like silk, no lipsticky feel at all, never ever makes my lips dry and never settles into cracks, and is so shiny -I can skip gloss. This lasts and lasts, and leaves a gorgeous stain that is brown/peachy gold, with a lovely red. Most brown/reds turn out dull, but this makes my face look put together, it's not an overpowering color at all, and it opens up my face so well. Never ever wore a prettier color. A very elegant shade and can be worn anytime. It's multifaceted and is my holy grail lipstick. At 8.00, it's great.
This is an average cleanser that does a good job of removing makeup, and really leave the skin feeling clean. ALthough it made my skin tight, I think this would be suitable for the warmer months. The smell is nice, and it foams up nicely, and the bottle lasts quit a while.
I really love the way this mask heats up when you use it. The result is a smooth and supple skin. Although I do not think this mask does much for my skin, I like the fact that it heats up when you use it!
Have used this product several times, and it does an average job. It's easy to use, and pulls some blackheads.

This is a soft, rosey pink gloss with a lot of shimmer. I really love this shade, for the summer, or the winter, it just looks so polished and delicate. It lasts, and is very easy to use, the consistency is awesome! I have had no problems with leaks, or it going bad. A great value, I consider this a holy grail gloss.
