I love this paint pot! It's a beautiful plummy brown color that looks really good with my light brownish/hazel eyes. I have oily eyelids so it isn't long wearing enough to last all day without creasing, but if you dont have oily lids, this will be great! I'd definitely buy again if I ever need to!
I really wanted to love this. It looks lovely in the tube, but the golden shimmer under the pink turns orange on my lips. This is probably going back to the store! I'll try another!

This is a lovely light foundation. I was able to purchase samples off of www.whiterabbitbeauty.com to find my color match. The owner, Jean, was such a nice person and even included a hand written note with my order. I found my match (Ivory) and put in an order for the full bottle of foundation. I can't wait! It doesn't go greasy or seperate on my like so many others. I guess everyone's skin is just different. I'm so happy to have found this! I'll still use my Clinique Even Better foundation, but this will be my go to foundation especially when I want to look extra good!
This is a pretty shimmery shadow and works well with my undertones. Frequently beige shadows come off as orange on me and this doesn't. This is like MAC Naked Lunch's REALLY shimmery friend. This is creamy and definitely has a place in my pallette. That being said, I'm not sure I'd purchase it again.
I have both the Sigma SS217 and the MAC 217. I will say that there is a difference between the brushes hence only giving it 4 lippies. The brush head on the Sigma is a bit more bushy and therefore doesn't give as precise as an application as the MAC 217 brush. Really though, with the price difference, I would buy more SS217 brushes and I'd only get another MAC 217 if it were a gift. This is the one eye shadow brush I feel like I can't have too many of.
I really wanted to love this blush...it looks so amazing on everyone else. Unfortunately it looked orange on me! Why does everything look orange on me!? Anywho, while I think this is a really lovely eyeshadow, I had to return it.

The ease in which this goes on is pretty amazing. The staying power is pretty good, but maybe not as unmoveable as some others have said...but that's just my experience and keep in mind that I have really oily eye lids!
I stopped by a Clinique counter because I couldn't tell my skin color via the internet. The lady at the counter immediately matched me and it's perfect. I also love that this is oil-free for my break out prone skin but also improves the quality of my aging skin. I love the texture and the medium to full coverage this gives. It's actually reasonable price for a higher end foundation. I also use Rimmel Matte Foundation, but I like this WAY better.
I love love love this chapstick. I can't resist anything with "milk and honey" in the name, but seriously this is amazing. It has a very slight scent, but no taste at all, and the scent wears off quickly. It is also highly moisturizing without a sticky or glossy feel. I use this after my moisturizer in the morning and put my lipstick right over it. So super yummy. I've already bought a second tube to keep at work. A must have!

I love the idea of these chapstick. The packaging is so cute, but the taste and texture are not what I like in a chapstick. Not only is it heavily scented, it also has a fake sweet taste. Gross! I don't want to taste my chapstick...let alone smell it for quite a while after I apply it. I also find that this dries my lips out after about an hour of wear. I won't be buying this again!
I'm a huge fan of red lipstick and I'd heard good things about this color so I jumped in. I love that it's not super matte, but has a bit of glossiness to it. It also has some blue tones in it which is a better look for me than orange reds. I love it and I'll for sure be buying this again!
This is a beautiful peachy gold glow, but it doesn't show up HUGELY on my face, so that's why only 3 lippys. I would recommend it for darker skin. It would like amazing on African Americans for sure.
I'm not sure I'm totally sold on the idea of primer in general. It seems like a superfluous step to me and I don't see any difference when I use it. This formulation seems silky and feels good on the skin and didn't cause me to break out, but I won't be buying (I received a sample from a purchase) it if/when I run out.
This is highly pigmented gloss and is a true orangey coral. It looks almost identical (with a bit more pigment) than a MAC cremesheen I have. In fact, this seems to be a better product at about half the price of what I paid for the MAC cremesheen. Definitely worth it if you are looking for a pretty coral.
This is lovely lilac and creates a pretty nude lip. Though I like the formulation, I don't think it's incredibly flattering on me. That being said, I will use it to layer with other warmer colors and I think it will tone them down a bit.
