How can you not love Barbie, and how can you not love great, soft, pigmented shadows? No idea. It's a great palette...the shades last a long while, and I love how each little circle has coordinating colors.
I really like this color. It's nice and glittery, but fine glittery, not chunky glittery (you know what chunky glitter is...the glitter that gets caught in hair. Ew!) I like the way that it changes from orange to gold to red depending on whatever light you are in.
Well, I've used worse, but I've used better. This is a pretty, dark, glittery color, but you have to really coat it on to get that color. I have to use 4-5 coats to get it not streaky.
I have Asphalt and Whipped, and I love them both. The tube is small for $17, though.
Love this liner. It's my favorite black liner...it's great for a thin line, it's great for a thick line, and it's great for smudging. Plus, it's got a little shimmer. What's not to love?
I really like this blush...it's not one that I find easy to layer, though. It starts off dark, and stays dark.
This was my intro to Illamasqua. I love the color, and the fact that it's not sticky. I'm not too fond of the tube...it is a little hard to squeeze, without squeezing too much.
Eye Shadow -BeneFit Cosmetics - Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liner (All Shades)

It creased on me :( I love the color RSVP, but it creased. Darn.
First of all, cute package! Second, it's UD shadows, so you know they rock. Third, they are all very wearable...when in doubt, you can always use them as liners.
My favorite lipstick. I love pinks and nudes, and this is the perfect combo color. It's a bit sheer, and has a little sheen to it, but it isn't overly glossy or shimmery.
Blush -MAC - Wonder Woman blush in Mighty Aphrodite

My newest favorite blush. The colors blend wonderfully, and they're not too dark nor bright, which I love. The compact is super cute, as well.
I could love the shade...if it looked like the shade in the bottle, but after 3-4 coats, it's still very sheer and streaky.
My go-to foundation. It is the only thing that covers my blemishes and lasts through my 12-16 hour work days. It isn't cakey-feeling, which is rare for such a heavy coverage.
I cannot wear "out-there" shades at work, but I love this palette for my weekends. The colors are highly pigmented and velvety, and they last all day with the help of UD's shadow primer.
Conditioner -Alberto Vo5 - Kiwi and Lime Squeeze Clarifying Conditioner

Here's the thing: It's a clarifying conditioner, so it's not going to provide a ton of moisture. I use during the cooler months, when my hair is mostly tame, and I only need a little conditioner on the ends. The scent and price are great as well.
