Lip Liners -Prestige - Waterproof Lip Liner- GLAZE

Finally found a true nude l/l. Now, when I want nude, I want something that DOES NOT ADD COLOR to my lipgloss. This is champagne/beige and has a silver tone, so basically it tones down the pigment in my lips and softens the lipgloss colors ever so slightly, which I adore bc I am fair and I hate the orange tones that always seem to pop out of nowhere to ruin my lipgloss look. Yipee, and it's super cheap, no more 15 dollar lipliners for this broke ass girl. Word.
Influenced by the MUA board, I went out to get this...tralalala...and looking at it, it looks like it would make me look as if I were wearing paste on my lips...however with a nice beige lipliner (prestige in Glaze) it is a very wearable nude pink, on me it looks beige with a hint of soft pink. Finally a wearable nude gloss that ISN'T ORANGE. Yipee for me.
Gorgeous, very much like a Multiple. Rosy beige. Sheer but works well in combo with another blush, bc it makes a good highlighter. Good for pale girls like me that want a nude flush that is not overpowering. Consistency is btwn a powder and a cream. Love all these colors.
Love these glosses, thick enough to stay on but not sticky. It is like a rosier version of Nymphette. Def. MYLBB, and is neutral enough to go with most any look.

Omg, how did I forget about this blush? Used it in college, and totally forgot, til I was in Bed Bath and Beyond. It is like Orgasm, but more rosy and not quite so bright on my complexion. Love it and would def. repurchase.

I love d/s liners, why spend more? This is a great nude, pinky brown with only a tinge of orange...perfect under all my pink glosses, reminds me of Subculture, but is actually creamier. Will def. repurchase.
Lip Gloss -MAC - Lipglass in Bait (Lure Collection)

I personally love this, but only when layered with other lipglosses, I wear it with Varneesh, Prr, even some Dior glosses and it makes them softer, milkier, somehow less harsh on my pale skin. It gives depth and dimension. But, no I don't like it alone.
So much drama over this one...I'm a d/s mascara girl, usually Lash Architect, but I just had to try this for the hell of it. Odd brush, big and clumsy but once you learn to have the right amt of product and to wiggle it near the base of the lashes...it looks good. The one thing that woud get me to buy it again is that my lashes are separated and soft. Other than that, ho hum.
I used this as e/s using each separately, usually the light pink all over, the medium plum on the lid, and the lightest shade as a highlighter. SO pretty, since I'm always mixing my brown and purple/pink shadows. Lasted a really long time. I didn't care for it as a blush, except with a pink shimmer over it.
I love the whole Lingerie Collection by MAC. This is a perfect warmish pinky gold that is somewhat see through. I don't like it alone, but with a pink lipstick or Subculture liner, it is very soft and feminine.
THIS is totally my HG blush...I like just a neutral pink flush with some dimension to it...and this is it! No orange or brown undertones, just soft light pink with shimmer but not too much. It's also great to tone any any other blush. I will never let myself run out of it.
A pretty but not unusual blush, peachy pink and sparkly but not overly so...it was too pigmented for my pale skin.
I must be doing something wrong bc this barely shows up on me and it looks kinda pale shiny pink...I look washed out. Maybe if I layer more of it...I am thinking of using it to cut some of my brighter shadows while it's winter and I'm pale bc it is pretty and light and sparkly...but I can't wear it by itself. Hmmm...I may mix it with my BE blush...
Well, I thought I'd buy a higher end highlighter, instead of my wet n wild...smashbox looked promising. But this is just a run of the mill matte white eyeshadow...kinda chalky, nothing special, didn't stay on well, and it was WAY expensive, so back to Sephora it goes.

Well, I wanted to try a smokey plum eye, but alas this does not work on me. I really ought to learn my lesson bc I never like matte shadows. I have pale skin with yellow undertones, auburn hair and green eyes. This just looked like a dirty light brown on me, it hardly showed up and really just looked flat. I will be returning it.
