I first saw this on a beauty blogger's website last year and was really attracted to the chartreuse / florescent green color. After checking the price of this vibrant duo ($32) I decided to not purchase it, especially since these are colors that are not easy to wear. MAC's Love That Look collection features a similar eyeshadow with the same name, but I prefer the NARS. After a year of dreaming of this duo and comparing it to MAC's Rated R, I went off and grabbed the last of this duo on the shelf. (Lucky me!) I wore it for the first time today. - Chartreuse on the lid - Blue as a liner on the upper and lower lashline - Two coats of mascara I LOVE this duo, and I am looking forward to purchasing more NARS duos.
I don't wash my hair daily so this dry shampoo is perfect for imbetween days or for those moments when my fringe (bangs) get greasy. Doesn't leave a strong white powder residue like Batiste and has a light fragrance. I take it that this product is very popular because when I went to Sephora to purchase it, I managed to snag the very last one in the store. The packaging is nice, simple, and clean, which definitely mimics how it makes my hair feel after brushing it out after a quick mist. My only problem is that I use it so often and for $18 a pop, I'm not sure if I'm willing to buy it every time I use it up.

For just $1, this eye shadow quad is amazing. The darkest color is the most pigmented of them all! Great for smokey eyes. The cool lavender color doesn't show up well at all on my tanned skin. I substitute it for MAC's Swish. The silver color is great for the inner tear duct. I hate the flimsy packaging on this quad. It's weak and easy to shatter. When you dip your brush into the pan, it is very powdery and can become quite the mess. To avoid fall out, I suggest you spritz Fix+ or water on your brush prior to application.
This is best brush by far that ELF carries. I own three of these babies because I find myself reaching for these almost every day for every look. Very soft, comparable to higher end brushes but like the rest of the ELF brushes, I despise the white handle because it stains easily.
This brush is incredibly soft and dense. Great for a wash of color on the lid. EXTREMELY great value. Compared to most cheap brushes I've tried this one is not scratchy on my delicate skin at all. I'm about to go and purchase another one of these. The only thing I hate is that the these brushes have white handles that stain easily.
Very versatile color! Suitable for the office and easy to smoke out with a dark brown for a night out. All That Glitters is a Veluxe Pearl so there is a slight shimmer to it, but not as much as the frost eye shadows. There is a little pink undertone in it, so it pairs well with pink blushes. When I'm late for work I apply my make up when I get there. I use All That Glitters on my lid and also as an alternative to a highlighter above my cheekbones. Similar to Stila's Kitten eyeshadow but less shimmery!
FAVORITE. BLUSH. EVER. I picked up Orgasm first because of all the awards it has received time and time again but it didn't show up on my skin very well. So I picked up Torrid, swatched it and fell in love! I did some research on the $25 value of the NARS blushes and finally gave into this pretty pink, peach blush! There's some shimmer in it as well. My spring and summer cosmetic staple! :)
Was pleasantly surprised with the results with the use of this product! I squeezed a good amount into a small dish and warmed it up in the microwave, let it cool, then applied generously to my ends and my scalp to simulate a "hot oil treatment". I put a shower cap on my head and allowed it to sit for 3 minutes. Normally after air drying my hair, it feels dry at the ends after 4 years of regular use of my CHI flat iron. After using this conditioner, my hair feels silky and my waves are more tamed with less frizz. Found this at TJ Maxx for $7.99 and now I think I'm going to head back for the shampoo and other CHI hair products.
This eyeshadow was my first purchase from the NARS cosmetic line. I purchased mine at Sephora at a hefty price tag of $22 dollars (correct me if I am wrong), but it is definitely worth it! Inside the attractive packaging is a small mirror and A LOT of product. NARS eye shadows contain 2.2g versus a 1.3g in a MAC eye shadow. Fez is an easy to wear dark brown shade with fine golden shimmers. It is very soft, easy to blend, and extremely pigmented. The only downside is that it is somewhat delicate. I took this with me in my purse to school and found it shattered!
After finishing my first tube of the famous CoverGirl Lash Blast, I decided to try this mascara. A friend of mine suggested that I try it, but was I disappointed! It tends to goop up in my under eye when it is humid outside and it doesn't hold a curl well at all. The best thing about this product is the brightly colored packaging. Skip out on this product and go for Lash Blast.
Found this in Walgreens on clearance for $1.36! I took the last one available in 01 Natural, and found it very attractive. Not fond of the brush that is included, kind of scratchy and doesn't pick up product well at all. Leaves somewhat of a streaky finish with the brush. This is definitely not a blush, but more like a highlighter or even a blush topper. Good over cream blush or matte blushes. You can use this as an eyeshadow but I warn you, this blush isn't pigmented. Great for tear duct and brow bone area. I recommend you apply it wet.
