one of my favorite perfumes. i get a new bottle yearly,and never get tired of it. i am not usually into such a floral scent,but it is light,and sweet,and i always get compliments when i wear it.
this stuff is amazing. it is so inexpensive,and wonderful! when my face is breaking out this is my go to product. i can immediately tell a difference. it shrinks my pores,and leaves my skin feeling rejuvenated. i have normal/combination skin,but if you have dry skin be careful,because it can dry your face out. i have nothing bad to say about it,and will always repurchase.
i think this works as an amazing eye primer. it does not crease,and really makes what you put over it stay,not to mention enhances the color. the packaging however is less than desirable. if you aren't careful a lot will be wasted,the tiniest squeeze on the tube and you will have a lot of excess product. despite my feelings on the packaging i will definitely repurchase. that is if i ever need to,it only takes a bit.
i was really shocked at how much i love this product. it has a really nice matte finish,and makes my skin feel super soft. my skin never looks oily with it,and makes my makeup hold up really well all throughout the day.i feel that it also minimizes my pores. the packaging is nothing fancy,but i really have no qualms with it. i will purchase over,and over.

i quite like maybelline products,and this one did not disappoint! the color payoff is amazing. i used a MAC 239 to apply,and a sk blending brush. i have to say i am not too fond of the packaging,it was a little difficult to open,and i stuck my finger in it accidentally in doing so :( other than that i was very pleased,and am excited to try out the others.
i was not quite sure how this would look on my complexion (nc15) as i usually wear strictly pinks,and peaches. violet seemed a bit daring. once it was applied i felt it was very flattering,and had to have it. the ombres are nice too because you can get different colors out of one blush. it fades from pink,to violet pink,and you can either use the colors individually,or swirl them together. a great blush,and a must-have!
I like this product overall.I bought it along with the gentle lentil shadestick,and together they make a nice,easy to do smokey eye. I have to agree that it is pretty rough,and difficult to blend. I probably won't buy this product again because there is a lot of it,and once it's gone i don't think I will feel the need to rush out after another.
I wanted to like this product,I really did,but I don't. I mixed it in my my foundation,and applied all over,it didn't blend very well,and honestly I can't tell that i have anything on other than foundation. I have read a few reviews stating it made their skin very sparkly,I can't even see a shimmer. i gave the price a 5,because it's $30,and completely not worth it. i do like the bottle it came in,and that is the only good thing I have to say about it.
this product gives a great overall shimmer. it may be a bit much to wear all over your face in the daytime,but looks nice as a highlighter. i think it's a great nighttime look when applied all over,it makes your face sparkle,and glow.
dollymix is by far my fav blush! the color is so pretty,and looks very nice on my very fair skin. there is quite a bit of it,and a little goes a long way.

i bought delft after seeing a friend of mine buy it. i fell in love with the color on the spot! i wear it under stars n rockets or club,and it really pops!
i was not overly impressed with this mascara. the wand is good for getting to some harder to get lashes,but other than that it didn't do much for me. i feel like it made my eyelashes look thin.
i think colorstay is comparable to some of the higher end foundations. if your rolling on a budget,like me,it's definitely the way to go. i can buy it at the local wal mart for around $13. it doesn't have a pump,which may be an inconvenience to some,but doesn't really bother me. it lasts pretty good,and doesn't break my face out. smooth,even coverage.

i happen to be in love with this product. the packaging is not the best in the world,but i can look past it. you do need to let it dry for a couple of minutes before applying eyeshadow. i've done the foundation on the lids thing forever,but it just doesn't hold all day. ARGH!! i work in a factory,glamorous i know,it's extremely greasy, so i have found primer potion quite helpful.
