Eye Shadow -Milani - Loose Eyeshadow Powder in Golden Green

i have two complaints about this product. 1) crappy packaging. but i solved that problem by transfering it to a pigment sample jar thinger. 2) when you apply this eyeshadow & try to blend it the color 'splits'. the gold & the green move around, but theres a dark blackish film left where i applied this shadow. i guess this is called chalkyness. for these reasons i will not repurchase. i most likely wont be using this very often either. i love milani's pressed shadows, but these were a major disappointment for me. i might check out some other colors, but i doubt it. PS: this is pretty much the same color as milani antique gold e/s. if you have that pass on this.

i absolutely love these eyeliners. i have very sensitive eyes & these are the only thing that doesn't irratate. well, i'm sure there's more out there, but i don't want to risk it :) this is the perfect everyday brown for me. also love the fact that it's a twist up. the pencil kind of eyeliner with wood usually irratate my eyes. also i'm lazy & dislike sharpening :) i had this liner before i got addicted to MU thanks to a GWP. i finished that one rather quickly and am on my second tube. the one i currently am using is almost done for & i do plan to repurchase it! this is one of my HGs. i will continue to repurchase this. ps: if you're looking for something more intense but not black i suggest the black/brown. it's also one of my favs for a more dramatic/nighttime look.
on me this is the most perfect champagne like color, but a bit more peachy. i love to use this with just black mascara & blackish liner. but my eyes get irratated by this one :( there are some pigments i'm fine with and some that my eyes just can't stand. unfortunately this was the case. i'm glad i only got a sample & not the full size. i would not buy this again. I gave this 2 lippies b/c i do love the color.

i absolutely *LOVE* this scent! i'm usually a floral freak, & usually dislike honey, but ohhhh! this scent is to die for. the main reason i picked it up is that there's no alcohol in it, and is great to use on my hair. My hair tends to get smelly (eww), and this keeps it smelling yummy! :D it doesnt weigh down my baby fine flat volume-less hair, and doesnt make it greasy. as an added bonus i got this for 50% off retail price at an l'occitane outlet! YEY! if i run out, i'd definately repurchase even if i have to shell out for full price :)
out of the 16 UD e/s that i own this one is my absolute favorite. it is the smoothest eyeshadow i own. definately worth the $15! if you don't have blunt yet, i highly recommend it. it works great with neutral eyeshadows, or dramatic ones. i'd say this is one of my HGs. if i ever manage to use up the entire thing i will definately repurchase!
the perfect red. i tried to use other reds, but always come back to this. i'm going to have to repurchase very soon, because this is the only bottle of polish i've ever used up in my life!
i absolutely loved this mask at first. smells very calming, makes my skin soft, and isn't too drying even on my dry areas. but it broke me out all over my face. such a shame because i really enjoyed this mask. so if you're acne-prone, stay away. *EDITED* i love the mint julep mask, but that one doesnt break me out. i compared what's in it, and the only thing thats in this stuff that's not in mint julep is iron oxides. so i guess i'm allergic to iron oxides. *shrugs* maybe thats why i can never find a foundation :p

i bought this b/c the ingridents seems nice & im starting to get wrinkles although im about to turn 21. this products burns when on my nose & cheeks, but doesn't burn on my forehead, corners of my eyes & around my mouth. i figured that's b/c they're some form of wrinkles already formed or about to be formed. around my nose & cheeks im still suffering from 'teenage acne'. i used to pay $6 for 2oz of dove night cream. with this i get 12oz for $3. im sold even if i can use it for parts of my face. it really helps my skin stay hydrated, and i think my wrinkles are becoming less noticable. i probably wont have to repurchase this for a year, but if i ever run out, ill most likely buy it again.
