perfect neutral, similar to myth but a wayyyy better finish. not drying at all. great texture, color & love the villain packaging
terrible. smudges all over my face!! bad pigmentation, the tip is too stiff and the lid is hard to get on and off. terrible!!!!!
i'm NW25 and i tried revlon's matte nude attitude lipstick and it was wayyy too orange for my skin. myth matches perfectly and cancels out my lips. it's a little bit drying though, and globs up in lines when you re-apply throughout the day
the color is nice but a bit too pink. it dried out my lips like CRAZY and tastes realllllly gross if you accidentally get it in your mouth. i'd suggest revlon's nude attitude over this for a drugstore nude.
my scalp has been super dry and flakey so i decided to try this. it was really hard to use, STUNK soooo bad and my scalp is still flakey. i guess i'll give it another chance since i still have TONS left but it didn't give me a good first impression!
Scrubs -St. Ives - Apricot Scrub Blemish and Blackhead Control

i use lush's ultrabland cleanser everyday but i wanted something to exfoliate a few times a week. i used this all over my face and it made my few pimples bleed and my skin was red and hurt afterwards! i've started to just use it on my nose and a bit on my forehead and chin and it works great to get rid of blackheads, my skin is just too sensitive to use it everywhere. it's a nice cheap exfoliator though and i think the tube will last me a long time. it smells okay and the packaging is nice. i might try it as a body scrub too

it's comparable to mac powders when applied with the puff it comes with. love it, but the packaging is kind of annoying.
really sleek and pretty looking. it's easy to decorate to identify what colors you have. i bought one to save money on eyeshadows because the pan refils are cheaper, but when i got my palette i got so excited that i depotted my quads and ended up filling it up.. so i'll either have to remove the dividers to fit more or buy another one which kind of defeats the purpose of saving money with the palette haha. it's nice though!
super pretty! i love pairing it with the copperbeam pigment or coppery shades from my coastal scents pallette. it does have some fall out though, but it's not a huge deal
it's really pretty and looks great with twinks, blackberry or any golds/nuetrals. it is a bit pinker than i expected though, and looks almost exactly like "hey" from the fafi eyes 1 quad which i already owned
it's very pretty but i already own twinks and blackberry which are pretty similar colors so i kind of wish i had held off on this color until i hit pan on the others.. but oh well. it really is a gorgeous warm tone that looks great with coppers, greys and golds. it's too dark for my lid but i use it in my outer V or in the crease and it's perfect. looks great with my hazel eyes and fair skin
gorgeous! fabulous addition to my neutral collection, can't believe i didn't get it earlier! the texture is great and it's a really pretty color that goes well with any look.
great value for the price. some of the lighter colors are a bit chalky but what do you expect for the price. the shadows are smaller than a dime which i wasn't expecting, and i hate the coastal scents logo on the front. the applicators it comes with suck. but overall there's some good colors in there!
i'm not a huge fan of pencil eyeliners, i prefer gel ones like mac's fluidline. but this pencil is really soft and smooth. great color pay off.i probably wont buy another one cause i really don't use pencil eyeliners that often and the sample size i got in the hall of fame package will probably last me forever
i got this in the hall of fame package. it's okay for a natural look, but i find myself using my HG mascara (l'oreal volumionious) over it to make my lashes more dramatic. i like the brush and packaging, but wouldn't pay the price for a full size of this.
