Moisturizers -The Body Shop - Vitamin E Nourishing Night Cream

I bought this cream because I was looking for an inexpensive night cream. It is perfect for my super dry skin. I use it every night in the winter, and when the weather is less drying I just put it on dry spots. I love the rose scent, and look forward to trying other products from this line.
I love this cleanser. It removes all my makeup, including my Urban Decay 24/7 waterproof eyeliner. The bottle has lasted a long time for me, and the pump dispenses the perfect amount of cleanser. The smell was a little strange to me at first, but now I have grown to like it.
I bought the 250 version from a clearance sale. Good thing it was so cheap, because there's not a whole lot of product. I have GWP lipsticks with more product in them. I thought it would be more of a nude, but it's just a metallic-y version of the colour of my lips. It looks nicer with a lip balm underneath than when used alone.
I might have imagined it, but I think this has definitely made my lashes longer! I have used it nightly for three months and noticed more length and new lash growth. The instructions do not recommend using it on the lower lash line, but I did anyways because I have some bald spots that are now slowly filling in.
Ricepaper is a perfect highlighter, as it's not too shimmery. I would like to use it over my whole lid, but it's a tiny bit chalky.
Eyeliner -Rimmel - Soft Khol Pencil in Purple Passion

I got this for free when I got a tube of the Sexy Curves mascara. I hate it! It tugs on your eyelid and the colour is quite dull, I wish it had a bit of shimmer in it. I tried to apply it with a brush like I do with MAC Eye Kohls, but the brush would not pick up enough product. I am glad I didn't pay for it!
This is a nice shimmery, long-lasting brown liner, but I find that it tugs on my eyelid too much so I apply it with an eyeliner brush. I probably won't buy it again because I feel that it is too matchy-mathcy with my eye color.
Nice peach color with gold flecks. I find that I can put on quite a bit on not look clownish. Not a huge fan of the packaging. The brush that comes with it is a little too small for my liking, and the sides make it difficult to get product out. For $36 CAD you should at least get a plastic container.
Rose is a pinky color with gold shimmer. Although I love the color, I find all Estee Lauder lip products to have an unpleasant smell.
Eye Shadow -Estee Lauder - Pure Color Eye Shadow in Tea Biscuit
lvlover23 10/29/2009 4:48:00 PM
Tea Biscuit it a really pretty purple-coppery color when I swatch it on my hand, my on me eyes it does nothing. It's too light to use as eyeliner and when I put it over my whole lid, it looks like my eye is bruised. It has a nice, creamy texture, though.
I purchased this nail polish after it was added to the permanent collection. It is a great shimmery navy blue that did not chip at all after a week (used with Revlon 2 in 1 base + top coat). However, it is a mess to remove! I often use dark colors and have never had any difficulty removing. Would have to think twice about using it again.
Blush -MAC - Beauty Powder Blush in Tippy (Hello Kitty)

My everyday blush...it looks bright in the pan, but just use a bit and it looks very natural. I can see this lasting my a very long time, even though I use it everday. Have been using it for several months, but it looks barely used.
I bought this to use as eyeliner. The color is very intense making a very nice, defined line, but I always get racoon eyes sometimes during the day. I found it a little difficult to remove.
Eye Shadow -Lancome - COLOR FOCUS PALETTE 4 OMBRES 310 Roses de Bonheur
lvlover23 6/14/2008 11:22:00 PM
Fab palette. Colors are long lasting and intense, works great both wet and dry. Very versatile, you can create a lot of different looks. Got it for only $30US in duty free. The dark purple is my favorite eyeliner, I don't know what I'll do when I run out. The white is a actually a an iridescent lilac.
Nice gloss, but did not make my lips look any larger.
