Oooohh, this pencil is soooo soft and very black. Very Smudgy!! So smudgy it may smear and end up all over your eyes. It's worth it in my opinion, but I like the messed up e/l everywhere and all over look.
Lovely light clean smell!! I had originally spritzed this on and walked around the mall for a while and thought this would disappear almost immediately. And, while it did fade, there was a nice just-took-a-shower scent still there. There are three scents in the PINK with a Splash collection and this one (fresh & clean) is fresh apple & lily. They are body sprays and are 8.4 oz. Not a bad deal really, especially if they are on sale; ) Also, the containers are rectanglar "boxes" and are clear pink with different color see-thru lids.
This smells clean (but not in a fabric softener way) and is more moisturizing than any of the fragranced lotions I have used before. Also, it doesn't start to smell odd once it warms up on your skin either.
This may be the best matte purple color e/s I have ever found!! Actually it is more of an aubergine. The MA told me to layer it over the Orpheus e/l, also in the collection (it is a similar color) but my Blacktrack e/l works just as well. I could also just use this over my UDPP, and put it all over the lid. Anyway, the color is a matte neutral dark purple. At first I thought it may be slightly warm but it's more neutral. Goes on pretty smoothly and evenly. I love this collection! I am always on the lookout for smoky eyes and nude lips. It is something that I would wear all the time if I could get away it, but it is more of a nighttime look.
Wow!! This is a very bright duo! The green is a light chartreuse and the blue is a medium slightly cool blue. They both have a small amount of glimmer in them that is pretty, yet almost undetectable once you put them on. I saw this in Sephora and the "sheen" that they have is what sold me. It is the kind of glimmer you get in those mineral formula e/s, but as I said before you really cant see it once you put them on. *sighs* I still love the green though and it seems to get brighter after you put it on and wear it for a while! Is that possible? I don't know. But it is lovely green, used sparingly. However, the blue is nice but slightly too cool for me and if you use it on top of the green, for a crease color, the green mutes it sooo much it doesn't even look blue. It's a blah gray color. I guess I could use it separate. hmmm... It is nice enough to keep and they are very unique colors so that's why I'll give the duo a four.
Ha! I didnt even want to try this the last time got an order from Lush, but I decided I was going to try all the highly rated products and this one was the one I always looked over. Well who would have thought it would be one of the best things I have tried from Lush!! It has a good smell that doesn't linger and leaves your skin so moisturized you dont even need lotion after a shower!! Some may thing it is a little oily, but I think it is perfect and doesn't leave any residue or sticky feeling! Slightly overpriced, but it will be in every Lush order I get from now on!!
Love the color of this!! It is almost the same as my NARS Bambi (my all time fave), but it seems to be a little less drying and the sheen is a little different. My Bambi turns matte after about an hour on the lips, but this kept that moist look for longer and and it seemed to add a little "plumpness" to the lips! Love the packaging also!!
Crème -Rimmel - cool matte mousse foundation [DISCONTINUED]

This is very nice, surprisingly! I wear MAC NC 30-35 and I found just the shade for me. Actually, I got this buy one get one free @ Walgreens this week, and bought two. One shade is Sand and the darker one I bought is Natural Beige. I may mix the two to get just the right color for me. I tan on occasion (very bad, I know) and my skintone flucuates, but these should do just fine. I agree with cyndinphilly that the formula is forgiving to your skintone, in that it "takes on", your natural tone (as some foundations do) and is somewhat sheer. As for the cooling part, I haven't actually experienced that, but it does stay fairly matte (I have oily skin), and is transfer resistant. It isn't thick like say Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse, or Lancome's mousse foundation. I also dont believe it has any silicone in it, (which breaks me out) like the others. It is more of a whipped liquid.
I bought this powder specifically for setting my concealer under my eyes. I read on Sephora.com that it was a very fine powder, and that is what I needed. I was a little wary because it is made for the shiny ares of the face and though it may dry out my under eye area, but it didn't. It is very fine, prolly one of the finest I have used. I bought this one shade lighter than I use on my face because when I use any powder to set my concealer it turns dark.
I like this mascara. The formula is very similar to the regular Voluminous, it is just a tad darker. I have always favored the brush in L'oreal's Voluminous mascaras because it is just "fluffy" enough to coat every lash in a swipe or two. I have been using Voluminous mascara since i was like 14 and it is the one d/s mascara I always go back too.
I liked this mascara in the beginning because of the nice separation and good volume. Then, it let me down. It seemed that it dried out about halfway through the tube (maybe it is just a dry formula, I dunno) and the applicator bristles were kinda scratchy when I would comb out my lashes. Also, the color isn't as black as I like. I bought the darkest shade.
Eyeliner -L'Oreal - Line Intensifique Extreme Wear Liquid Liner

This is the best liquid eyeliner ever. I dont use the liquids with a brush applicator (to messy and only does a thick line), this one has a felt tip. It wears almost all day with out migrating, and makes a nice even line (thin or thick).
Liquid -L'Oreal - HIP Flawless Liquid Makeup [DISCONTINUED]

Love this, in shade 800 nude. This is what I mix with all those other foundations that are not yellow enough or are too pale for my skin. I seen this marked down at Walgreens today, though. Maybe they are changing the packaging or reformulating it, I dunno. I hope it's not discountinued. The only thing I have against this product is it has an SPF, and it's seems that any product that has sunscreen breaks me out!
Mac describes this as a sky blue with silver sparkle and IMO that is just about right. It is a medium to light blue and just a tad bit on the cool side and it is a little frosty and has a little sparkle. I personally have a warm skintone (nc30) and have no trouble wearing this pigment although it does look a little grayish after I apply it. It was only one of the two things that impressed me with this collection, the other being the Pastorale pigment which is very nice also!! *Update* I made this into a pressed pigment, it turned darker and not so sheer. Similar a mineral e/s. When pressed it is very vibrant!
Blah! Way to much tuberose......it drowns out any other scent this fragrance may have!!
