I LOVE LOVE LOVE this pallet! that is all i can say! I got this as Gratis and i am so happy i did... If you are not sure how to use this or think the colors wont work on you have a MA show you, You will love it as much as i do. Give it a try! I do like that they took out the worthless drawer. Much more sleek, Too faced has been stepping up their game lately and the new set at Ulta is super nice!
i really like this polish. I remember back in the day some brand made this polish and i had it in black and white. It is back again. I bought it today and polished my nails just as i got home. I purchased the set and used it over the blue glitter polish. I am not too much of a fan of matte polish so to test it out i used seche vite on one hand and not on the other. I actually think i do like the matte......This polish could be great fun. I think we all should own a bottle of shatter!
This is my favorite of the bunch. The colors are really pretty and well pigmented. The cream color is one of my favorites. Instead of applying it with your fingers try using a synthetic blush brush like Urban Decay's, lighty tap the product and buff it in. I had the color on my wrist ALL DAY from work. I like it on my lips as well. The cancer pallet is nice also. ....For $10 you can not go wrong!
Crème -Urban Decay - Surreal Skin Cream to Powder Foundation

I love this foundation. My 14 year old daughter loves this foundation also. She attended the Urban Decay training with me and she is hooked. First of all for those of you that are reaching the pan on the 3rd use....you are using WAY TOO MUCH. You need to use the UD blush brush! You tap the top of the compact 2 to 3 times and BUFF it in REALLY GOOD on half of your face, then 2 to 3 more taps and you do the other side of your face, THATS IT! You can add concealer if you need it. It can last for months! My daughter has been using her compact for over 4 months, no lie! The technology behind this foundation is highly advanced so it is not used like other creme to powders. Using your fingers to apply is most likely too much. It never looks cakey on me or my daughter. I use the razor sharp powder on top but i find that i do not really need a powder , it's a habit ! HA HA!
The story behind Thierry Mugler is AMAZING! I love Angel and Alien, not sure which one i like more. The thing with these fragrances is that you should NEVER spray this directly on you. This fragrance is meant to be sprayed into the air and walked through, like a cloud. The scent lasts and lasts and lasts....It was never meant to be sprayed directly onto yourself. Everyone has different visions with this scent. It warms me up and makes me feel sexy!
I love glitter! This eyeshadow has "Reflex" glitter. It is a micro glitter that does not come cheap! This eyeshadow is actually really pretty. It has strong color in the pan. The color on your lid will be sheer. The color is buildable but was not meant to be a strong color. The glitter does not fall on your face. my two favorite colors are "Bobby Dazzle" and "54." You can also use these colors on top of your regular eyeshadow to add some sparkle. The best way to use this eyeshadow is with your fingers, tap on the color don't rub. All in all these are beautiful. They cost $20 each and have a super cool way of opening, you squeeze the sides and the top pops open! The range of color is from super light to black. LOVE THESE!!!!
I would most def buy this again! I love this liquid liner. I am not a big fan of liquid liners but this one is great. Sometimes you just need to use a liquid. This one is black! not too wet, perfect. The color stays put on me. Now if only we could keep them in stock!!!!

I went to work and had a pimple, took off the roller ball (it was a tester) and dipped a Q-tip (took off most of the cotton) into the solution. I applied it to my pimple (over my makeup) and at the end of my 71/2 hour shift it was dry...next day pretty much gone. I purchased it a week later and am using it on 2 small pimples....It really works! It is a bit expensive but thank God I get a discount. This is one product that because it works so well on me I would still purchase even without my discount!
All i got to say is this is LONG LASTING! To sharpen i would suggest getting the Sue Devitt sharpener. It has a German blade and sharpens all pencils PERFECTLY! I use this sharpener at work to sharpen the billions of lip and eye pencils daily! Loves them both!

I have this powder in Great Sandy Desert. I LOVE THIS POWDER! I use it with a disposable sponge during the day to touch up. In the morning I use a brush and dust it over my liquid foundation. It IS finely milled and covers very well. When I show this to people I show them on my self first, how well it covers then I do half of their face. I see that either people love it or hate it. Like everything, nothing works on everyone but for me, this works very well. I suggest you go in and try it then make up your mind. I do not think that the thin sponge that comes with the product is for use on the face so just throw it out! You should not use a sponge over and over again anyway....germs! EWWW!
This is an AMAZING product! I woke up in the morning and felt "IT" on my forehead... I went to work and put some of this spot treatment on. I dusted it with halo powder and went about my day. When I got home and washed my face my pimple was dead! I will buy this product until I die. It does not dry out your skin. This is best used on bumpy blemishes. I promise it will zap those pimples away!!!
This blush is so pretty! It is the perfect color for those of you that like peach blushes. I pretty much agree with the reviewers below. If i ever run out I would repurchase but it seems to be plenty of product so it might be a while before i have to repurchase. Give it a try....they also have a browny tone and a pinky tone. All very pretty.

I love this cute brush. I got it in the bronzed and the beautiful kit. You could also buy it separately for around 12 bucks! It is very soft and applies everything nicely. It is made of teddy bear hair (cruelty free! YEA) Perfect brush to take in your purse and did I mention...very super cute!
I tried both colors free love and living in sin. I love both colors but i seriously do not need to buy two colors. I bought the free love color. I love how it makes my lips look, they stand out without too much color. They look pouty. It is very moist. I have worn it over lorac stains in sheer magic and sheer emotion and it looks great. The price does not bother me too much anymore. I am used to it now, I do get a discount but I would rather pay for something I can try than to buy one I can't try and then hate it. I recommend this color, especially if you like to play up your eyes more.
I had a love hate relationship with Bare Escentuals. It sometimes made me itchy and it sometimes had this shiny look. I love the matte foundation way more! The pluses to the matte foundation is that is does not have the bismuth or Mica in it. It also has the mineral complex that the skin care has. I tried it over my Smashbox tinted moisturizer and I really really was happy with the results. I hear that it is more sheer but I can not vouch for that... I have pretty clear skin now. I noticed my face smoother, pore less, and it wore well through out the day. I like that the container now has a "closable sifter" YEA!!!! (that should cut down on the mess.) In the regular formula i mix the light and golden medium because i thought the light was a hair light on me....The matte version i only have to wear light. I am happy they finally came out with a Matte version!
