I just finished my second tube of Boy Bait, and I ADORE this gloss!!! It is the perfect creamy pale pink nude. Not too opaque, and not too sheer. It looks perfect on its own, or my favorite, over Hue lipstick. Love this stuff!!!

This stuff is great----for the first 5 minutes. It smells like a delicious green apple, and feels very moisturizing on the lips. However, it fades right off in a matter of a few minutes. Therefore, I would NOT repurchase. I prefer the Fresh Sugar lip treatment -- that actually lasts for me.

I absolutely LOVE this product!!! This is a MUST for gals with dry-ish skin, as it is full of nurturing oils. I am NC25 and Butter was a perfect match. This is definitely "heavy" for a TM, it's more like a foundation. But it is sooo moisturizing, and has great coverage. It definitely gives me dewy skin -- I never get flakies when wearing this. But I do have to set it with a powder on my forehead or it could look a little oily. Other than that, this is perfection. And this does not oxidize on my skin, as other TM's tend to do. Also this does NOT break out my skin. I sometimes mix this with liquid highlighter and the result is gorgeous! Added benefit that it has SPF 30 -- Highly recommended!!!
This is a gorgeous soft pale pink nude. It is very creamy, but I still use a balm underneath because otherwise it will accentuate my flakies (as most nudes do). I would compare this to MAC Hue, but more opaque and more pinkier. It gives a very mod 60's/twiggy look. Overall, I LOVE this!! A MUST for pale pink lip lovers!!
Eyeliner -Stila - Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner Stingray
scarlettOH 2/19/2011 2:03:00 PM
This is one of the BLACKEST eyeliners I've ever used. And it looks nice and intense on the waterline. And for that alone, I will repurchase. However, this pencil is sooooo overpriced!! And the staying power isn't the best, but it improves if you set this with black eyeshadow. But overall I do love this pencil!!
Fabulous!! Gives my lashes a bit of volume, but mostly INSANE length. I find it similar to lashblast, but 10x's better! Seriously, gives kardashian lashes! I love this, I'm mad that I didn't discover it sooner. HG status!
Say NO to Sex Appeal!! This pale pink (NOT peach) blush is INVISIBLE. Seriously SERIOUSLY!!! In the pan, this looks like my dream blush. I love soft pale pink colors. But after a heavy handed swatch; and another; and another --- I discovered that this blush has no pigment. No chalkyness, nothing. It's just invisible. Save your money!!
Eyeliner -Bare Escentuals - Buxom Insider Eyeliner In Onyx

Excellent black eyeliner! One of the best I've found that stays really well on the waterline! It's a very dark black which doesn't smudge. I much prefer this over UD 24/7 and MUFE AquaEyes. I have sooo many other black eyeliners, but when I lost this one I scrambled to buy another one. I am dependent on it! It is a really good black eyeliner. Highly recommended!
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Dark Kiss- Lotion

OMG this smells soooo good! I'm terrible at describing scents, but this is definitely more *mature* than the usual BBW scents. This makes me think of a perfume-y cherry chocolate. Kind of reminiscent of Britney Spears Fantasy, but better imo. This cream is very rich and moisterizing; exteremly good for dry skin. The best thing about this body cream is how long the scent lasts! I put it on in the morning and I could still smell it when I got home from work! SO loves it too! Will repurchase.
I love this polish. It is a super pale opaque lavender creme. It's almost like lavender white out. In low lighting it looks like a blue grey (which I don't mind). The only complaint that I have is that the formula is a little thick and slightly difficult to work with. But I find that problem consistently with China Glaze, and prefer the formula of Opi. However, I do love this color, so yes, I would buy again. Click continued to see a pic on my NC25 skin. (2 coats, indoor lighting, no flash) HTH!
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Rainkissed Leaves

I absolutely love this fragrance, I own it in all forms. However, for some reason, the body spray makes me cough every time I spray it..so I don't really use it. But the body cream, gel, soaps, and EdP are amazing! It is a really clean, green scent. Very fresh and upscale. I adore Rainkissed Leaves.
Totally gorgeous bright turquoise creme. Very funky and pretty. I get tons of compliments when I wear this. It might be my favorite polish right now. It's gorg!!! Here is a pic of it on my nails -- 2 coats (I'm NC25 for reference) Indoor lighting:
Love this stuff! My HG!! It definitely softens my dry lips and I love the cute tub and it smells delish. I do not find it to be clear, though. It definitely is milky, and can lighten the color of the lips when applied heavily (which is how I apply it). All in all I love it! $9 at Sephora, I will continue to repurchase.
Lipstick -MAC - Emanuel Ungaro Lipstick - Pure Rose (Lustre)
scarlettOH 10/4/2008 1:01:00 PM
Very pretty color, but this accentuates flakey lips like nobody's business! This lipstick will show every single little flake, ridge, dry spot, or peel that you didn't even know you had. So, beware to those of you gals with dry lips..this will only accentuate it. Putting all of that aside, this is a great pale pink lipstick. It is not a garish pale, but very delicate soft baby pink. This is similar to Pretty Please from their regular line, but it is more rosey in color. As a matter of fact, it's kind of like the love child of Hue and Pretty Please. I like the color of Pure Rose better. However, being that I am plagued with dry lips, I would not buy this again. If this same exact color came out in a Mattene formula (perhaps without the white pearl) , alas, then it would be perfect! Click continued for a pic of Pure Rose on my NC 20-25 lips (applied over a lip primer), along with a comparison pic of some of my other Mac pale pinks:
Blush -MAC - Beauty Powder in Flower Mist Dew (Emanuel Ungaro)
scarlettOH 10/2/2008 5:47:00 PM
I thought for sure that I was going to purchase this beauty powder, being as I love pale pink cheeks. Flower Mist Dew, however, has almost zero pigment. The MA @ Mac was applying it with a blush brush, and just kept applying and applying, and we both couldn't see it on my cheeks!! And I'm pretty fair, (NC20-25) After a while it just looked chalky. This is not a visible blush, nor highlighter. I don't get the purpose for this product, so I had to skip it.
