Eye Shadow -Prestige - eyeshadow in Golden Retriever

Golden Retriever is a beautiful metallic gold. This is one of the prettiest golden, if not the prettiest, golden eye shadows I'd come across. It is an amazingly smooth and pigmented eye shadow with hardly any fall out. Not only that, but you get a ton of product for a cheap price. I would definitely recommend. For a matter of fact, I think I'm going back to get another one.
I'm not really seeing the blue toned red everyone is talking about regarding this lippie. Really Red pulls a little orange on my skin tone (NW47). Although, it's not a blue toned red, I love the formula of the lipstick....really light and glides on the lips smooth with no funky lipstick smell. Oh, and, it's not drying either. I would purchase again.
This is brush is quite genius, actually. Not only does it fit perfectly in my crease but it is quite multi functional. The flat shape and rounded bristles allow you to pack color on the lid and blend it out. And, the bristles are really soft, no scratchiness here. The only problem is that I'd wished I had purchased it sooner.
With a name like Cherries In The Snow, I was expecting a true, blue toned red, but,instead, Cherries In The Snow is a bold fuchsia/magenta lipstick. Surprisingly, I have no problem with the lipstick. I tend to thick fuchsia/magenta is my version of a "red lip". I do think the name is misleading though. Others may expect a blue toned red so, in that aspect, I deduct a lippie for that. But, as far as formula, nice, creamy and smooth lipstick with no funky lipstick taste or smell.
Thought I take a chance on these lip balms,however; I wouldn't call these exactly these lip balms. It's like a lipgloss/lipstick hybrid. These have really nice pigmentation and, imo, would recommend these over the Natureluxe lip balms which are very waxy and lack pigmentation. The lip shines apply nicely and smoothly. The only gripe I have about the product is that the lipstick doesn't screw all the way in the tube, but, all in all, I would definitely repurchase.
They are tons and tons of reviews on this foundation;however, I wanted to put my two cents any. I could see this foundation working on the following: Those with small pores, no or little blemishes and dry skin Mature women This is a dewy foundation that offers little to no coverage. If you have oily or even combination skin, looking for full coverage or PREFER a matte finish, I suggest you do not buy this foundation. When I see a product advertised as a natural foundation, I would think most people would have enough of common sense to understand it is not a full coverage foundation. To put simply, it isn't designed to be a full coverage foundation. Personally, I like this foundation. It provides enough of coverage just to even out my skin tone. The only gripe I have about this foundation is that it doesn't last throughout the day, hence ,one lipstick taken off. Would I purchase this foundation again? Yes, I think I would but this would be fall/winter foundation where my skin is a little drier. .

This is a very beautiful, clean scent. Whoever described it as "fresh linen" is spot on. Most of the time, I don't want to smell like "perfume", I just want to smell clean and this is the perfect scent for that. Definitely would purchase again!
Flamingo is a lovely, hot pink blush. IMO, it's a universally flattering color. Some say it's a matte blush but I do detect some sheen to it once applied to face, so, it's more of a satin finish.
For some reason, I thought this lippie was going to be a hot, matte, fuchsia lipstick. Once I received my package, which I like to add took forever to be shipped, I was quite disappointed in the color. It's not a fuchsia pink but a neutral hot, neon pink. I would say it's a cousin to Pink Nouveau. But, anyway, I'm not taking off two lippies for buying the wrong color. I have a problem with the application of the product. Candy Yum Yum is quite patchy when applied to the lips. And, another reason, I know this is matte lipstick and it's important to exfoliate and moisturize but after doing all that my lips, the lipstick emphasized my lines. CYY is a beautiful lipstick. I just wished it wasn't so patchy.
I'd recently picked up Spellbound, Flame and Smoulder at Wally World. Spellbound is a bright creamy fuchsia with no glitter or shimmer. Flame is a pink coral and Smoulder is a pink beige nude. Let's see, I would say these lipsticks are extremely pigmented, so much so that they leave a stain on your lips. Imo, they're not very moisturizing but they go on the lips very well. I would say they feel almost like a lip balm.There's no feel of heaviness on the lips,however; there's the funky lipstick smell. In hindsight, I think the lipsticks are a really good value. I think some of the bolder colors (Spellbound, Flame, Hot Passion) are the standouts in the lipstick collection.
Polishes -Sinful - Sinful Professionals in #02 (Black on Black)

I swear to you all this is like the blackest black and it was opaque in ONE coat......incredible.
Rich in Heart is a dark, vampy, burgundy, brown nail polish. I'm not too much of a fan of red or burgundies on my fingers. So, I bought this nail polish strictly for my toes. The polish applied nicely, no streaking or thickness, What I've come to realize is that older bottles of Sinfuls that had been sitting on the shelves tend to be thicker and gooey than those that have been recently put out on the shelves.
Daddy's Girl is a purple jelly infused with purple shimmer. I was slightly disappointed with this color because you have to apply 6 or 7 coats to achieve the color of the bottle. Also, the formula of this polish was a little thick. But, all in all, if you apply this over a black base, you'd realize the beauty of this polish..
What's your Name is a black nail polish with teal and purple shimmer. I was really surprised because I didn't expect the polish to be opaque in 2 coats. Also, I noticed the handle of the bottles are different from the previous Sinful bottles. The handles are textured and there's a SC(sinful colors) embossed on the top of the handle. It looks like someone are taking cues from O.P.I..
Secret Admirer is a charcoal/gunmetal nail polish infused with fine, micro silver glitter or shimmer. This color is amazingly beautiful on the nails and, the best thing about it is, it was opaque in 2 coats. Definitely purchase again.
