While not as deep, rich and creamy as Perversion - Zero does not irritate my eyes like Perversion can. This gets the job done, stays put and is *still* a rich black.
Polishes -Wet 'n' Wild - Wild Shine - Tickled Pink

I am pleasantly surprised by this nail polish! I was expecting a ho-hum, sheer, pink. With 3 coats, this is an opaque, creamy, bubble gum pink. I've had this polish on for 5 days (with Seche Vite TC) and I only have minimal tip wear. This is AMAZING for me! Most polishes, even HE, will chip within 2-3 days. This is just the feminine, "dessert" looking pink I was looking for.
When I was a young tween (probably younger than that) and first trying out makeup, this was the powder my Mom gave me to use along with the Clean foundation. I remember this having a strong smell and stinging my skin. Yikes. She swears by this stuff, though.
When I was a young tween (younger than that, even) and I first started getting into makeup, this was the foundation my Mom gave me to use. I remember this stuff stinging my skin and making an awful mess trying to get it out of the bottle. When I think of classic, basic, makeup. I think of CG Clean Makeup.
Skincare - Face -Garnier - Refreshing Remover Towelettes

These are a staple in my makeup removal routine. I like using wipes as a first step to remove the majority of my face makeup. I like being able to *see* my foundation on the wipe. I don't feel like my skin is clean just using a cleanser. I wipe my face down with a wipe, then cleanse my skin in the shower with a seperate cleanser (Purity) and my Clarisonic. I can get right into my water line to remove eyeliner without any eye irritation. These can also tackle strong eyeshadow looks, but I usually leave that to my cleanser to avoid tugging. Some packs of these are super saturated, and some are more dry. I wish these had a pop up lid like MAC wipes, because the plastic tab tends to pop up after some use.
Lip Treatments -Bliss Labs - lip conditioner (original)

This came in the Fabulips lip set that was sold at Sephora. It reminds me alot of the MAC lip conditoner in the twist up tube. It's rather oily, which I don't mind, but I find it sits on top of my lips and doesn't really sink in to make them feel really "conditioned". I'll use it up, slowly, as I don't reach for it often...but I would never spend the full price on this product.
Lip Treatments -Bliss Labs - Fabulips Sugar Lip Scrub

This scrub was part of Fabulips set I got at Sephora. It's a tastey (literally) little scrub and gets the job done. My lips aren't in any particular disaray, but I like to exfoliate every now and then since I put my lips through some serious trials and tribulations with long wearing and staining lip products. I've backed off on use, though, since I'm prone to acne blemishes around my upper lip and I'm not sure if this is exassperating the issue or not. I like to scrub dry lips before getting into the shower, then leave the product on while I'm in there so the oils have a chance to sink in. I don't think I would repuchase this, as I can get the same effect scrubbing my lips with my towel after showering and applying some lip balm. This is also RIDICULOUSLY expensive for what it is.
One of the few "nude" lip colors I can pull off without looking like a corpse.
Great pigmented, creamy, lip gloss. Very opaque, but can be sheered down when applied lightly. Can be worn on its own or over lipstick. Like all MAC lipglasses, it's quite thick. Does not leave a stain behind.
This is a sheer green shimmering gloss to top off lipsticks with for a fun effect! Great for layering. Unique.
I love these. They are long wearing, moisturizing, and leave a glossy tint on the lips. If I'm going to be out in the sun for a long period of time, I love slapping one of these glosses on as they have an SPF of 15 and last and last. They're a bit sticky, but not uncomfortable. If I don't want to fuss with my lips every 30 mins, I can rely on Glosswear. I love how they actually deposit color. Sheer, juicey lips.
I've had this in stick form as well as the tinted pot form. While I used up the stick, the pot is going to last me forever as I don't reach for it very often. Both products tend to sit ontop of the lips and aren't very nourishing. There are much better lip treatments and tinted balms out there.
This pulls a strange purpley, murky brown on me. The finish isn't forgivng either, the sheen adds to the unflattery. I haven't given up hope, though. I am determined to make this shade work!
I love the Ultraglide lipglosses. Smooth, non sticky, and pigmented. Long lasting, too. The applicator popped off of the tube, leaving me with quite the mess, but I love this gloss so much that I taped it together. I wish these were still around!
I'm not a fan of sheer lip products. I bought 2 of these glosses for cheap a few years ago during a Hautelook sale. While these are cushiony, long lasting and feel minty freshy on lips...they're seriously lacking in pigmentation for me. Both shades show up clear on my lips - one clear with shimmer. I gave one away and held onto the other to top off lipsticks. If you're looking for a pigmented, or even a tinted lipgloss...this isn't it.
