This colour is amazing. I am blonde, blue eyed and fair skinned. I love wearing dark/bold lips but find it hard to find a colour that doesn't wash me out or make me look dry and yuck. This colour is awesome. Not red but really deep pink and very vibrant. It goes on well and stays on well too. The lipstick tube has been rattling around in my purse for a year and it hasn't broken (or stopped closing properly as some of them do). I bought a few back up when they went on sale and this will be my signature lip for years to come.
I loved loved love (still) the smell of Sweetie Pie. I also love the look of it too--the deep purple with magical purple glitter--makes me feel like a witchy-woman when I use it. Which is always fun! A little goes a long way too so I thought the price was prettyt good. Plus it made my skin so soft and supple afterwards and the smell lingered softly. I live in a cold, dry climate and this product worked so well and replenishing my skin's moisture (and not taking any of my much-needed own oils away) that I didn't even need a moisturizer afterwards. And that is unheard of. The sparkles are pretty to look at, but don't worry: they don't stick around once your bath/shower is over. Yah! Thanks Lush!
I bought Legend and it looks great on my fair skin. It's a nude that does't make me look dead and I think that's due to the sparkles and gold tones...very beautiful and eye-catching. Great formulation-thick but not too stick and the price is right. What's not to love?
I have blonde, chemically treated hair that is just past my shoulders. It is fine but I have a lot of it and I often find it hard to make it look shiny and soft and not dry, fluffy, and "old" looking. This product makes my hair supple, soft and smell great. I put a dime-sized amount in my hair when it's towel dried (not too wet or it will dry away) and I style my hair as usual (blowdry, etc.) On the "second-day" hair, I apply a tiny bit all over my hands and rake through my hair (concentrating at ends) and then I curl or straighten my hair and it gives it some life. I love this product! It costs a lot at the beginning but you'll have the bottle FOREVER! And it really works!
This mascara is not great. It dried out really fast, does not add any length to my short lashes, and is just basically sad. I thought I was going to be getting a great product as it was MAC and I paid a fair bit for it but NOPE, it just doesn't really do anything. I think the bottle is pretty though.

I love this foundation. It glides on smoothly, it stays on ALL day...like, All day! I wear Sand Beige and the colour is perfect for me (not too pink or yellow). It holds up to being powdered, it doesn't get cakey around my nose like some foundations do and it blends really well all over my face and neck. (I apply it with a Quo bronzer/buffer brush) The only complaint I have is that it doesn't have a pump tube, just a screw-top bottle which is a little...juvenile I guess. Makes me feel like I'm 16 with my first bottle of Cover Girl, ya know? But other than that LOVE. Have some back ups just in case! :)
I bought three colours in this and liked them all ok...especially the grape one, it gave a lovely "stain" to my lips. But the taste! Terrible! They all taste so awful and sickening that I don't even want to wear them. I'll stick to the Revlon Lip Betters thank you!
This concealer works like a hot damn and stays put. The only reason I didin't give it top billing is that it's a bit pricey and I'm not super in love with how it looks under my eyes...but on blemishes??? It's awesome! Stays put all day and is beautiful. Will be repurchasing again, for sure!
I love full, beautiful lashes and this gives me this...and then it flakes...all day. And my beautiful lashes end up all down my face. I don't need any more darkness under my eyes, thank you! I would not recommend to anyone. I have tried to like it but the flaking is just ridiculous!

I got the Taupe one and I just had no idea what to do with it! People were comparing it to MAC paintpots on YouTube so I put it on like I would one of those (all over eye like a base/primer) but it made me look like I had a big ol' black eye and really emphasized my under-eye darkness (2 kids!!). I am fair with pretty transparent skin and I tried at the end of my day so I would attribute darkness to that maybe but the overall colour was terrible. I got the Gold one too but I'm too afraid to open it so I am just going to return it to WalMart where I got it and stick to my paintpots which I swear by!
