I probably shouldn't give this a 5 until I see how well it lasts, but right now I'm thrilled with it. I got the light red/blonde color, and used it over semi-permanent pink, with half-inch dark brown roots. It covered everything! It's not even tinted pink, and my roots were lightened just as much as the rest of my hair. Plus, they give you a ton of dye. I have shoulder length hair and with most brands I use up the entire bottle, but with this stuff, there was about a quarter of a bottle left. The conditioner wasn't great and the packaging wasn't anything exceptional, but I am definitely buying this stuff again.
This is horrible stuff. The first day I used it I loved it. My hair was bouncy and wavy and shiny. Every day since then though, it's made my hair flat, heavy, dull, and greasy. I thought maybe it was interacting badly with my conditioner, so I didn't use that today, but no, it's still dull and dry. Awful shampoo. I'm buying something else tomorrow.
Finally! A lipslicks in a good color! All of the lighter ones don't show up, and I love daring but it's really too dark for me. Babe, though, is a medium rosy pink. Noticeably darker than my lips, but not unnatural. It feels wonderful on like all lipslicks and doesn't smell bad. This will definitely be a staple for me this summer.
I like this stuff a lot, as long as I don't use too much. Using it like a powder bronzer and just putting it on your cheekbones, nose, chin and forehead is perfect. Yes, it is quite shimmery, but I like that in the summer. I got the burnt rose color because it seemed a little darker. I'm a PPP, but it really looks good. I look just slightly tanned and healthy. Just stay away from it if you don't want shimmer though.
Raja is the best color ever! PURPLE. No question about it. It's the best liner in the world for my brown/hazel eyes. As with all prestige shadows, it's great quality and very pigmented. Go buy it now!
Finally! A shimmer that shows up on me. My only complaints are that this would look better on me if it were pinker (maybe make more than one shade?) and that it can be too much if you're not careful. Wearing it under tinted moisturizer is perfect though. Glowy and gorgeous!
I love prestige eyeshadows in general, so this review is only about the color. It's a gorgeous reddish purple. Kind of a vivid wine color with fine shimmer. Beautiful beautiful color. It really brings out the green in my eyes. Even though they're usually just plain brown, this shadow makes them look really hazel. I love it.

Ahh! The perfect tinted moisturizer! More coverage than most, semi-dewy looking, not oily at all, and minutes after applying, it feels like I'm wearing nothing at all and it stays that way all day. Bonus: it actually mosturizes and has sunscreen. Woohoo!
I can understand why some people don't like this, but I really do. Yeah, you don't get a ton of product, but you're getting lipgloss and a ring for 12 bucks. That's a pretty good deal. They're also slightly drying on me, but not nearly as bad as some lipglosses. I have it in color 400, which is my new favorite color. It's a slightly rosey red with no shimmer or glitter. It gives just the best touch of color to my lips, or it can be built up to be more red. Either way, it's my new holy grail red gloss.
Eyeliner -Prestige - Classic Kohl Eyeliner in E-71 Rhapsody

This color is not for the timid. Or it can be, if you make the rest of your face neutral. It's more royal blue than dark blue on me, and it does have shimmer. Not something I'd normally wear, but it looks great when I do. Also, this is the smoothest eyeliner I've ever used. It feels like a gel or liquid in pencil form. I need more colors!
Palettes -Bloom - Multi Purpose Cosmetic Palette (GLAM)

I love love love this. Amazing colors. The gloss is my new favorite. Looks perfect, feels great, and smells good too! Same with the lipstick. The highlighter is fine, but I'm pretty indifferent to it. Then there's the eyeshadows. The green is the most amazing color, and the blue is great as a liner, but sadly, they have the worst staying power of any eyeshadow I've ever used. I don't know why. They go on with lots of pigment, but 3 minutes later, the color has mysteriously dissapeared. It doesn't go to my crease, it just dissapears. It's crazy. Maybe I just got defective ones though. Overall, this is a great palette, and I can't wait to go buy the Girlie one.
Makeup Brushes -Sephora - Professional Soft Touch Brush Set

This brush set was a great purchase. The brushes aren't great, but they're pretty good. Definitely a great deal for the price. Plus, the cylinder is absolutely perfect for travel.
I like this blush, but I also don't. The brush is worthless. It leaves big lines of blush on your face. I really don't understand the rounded blush top either. A bunch of blush gets swept off every time you swipe your brush across. I don't like wasting blush like that. My last complaint is that it's too pigmented. Actually, that's a good thing, but it just doesn't work on me. Sad. I do like it though, it just takes some effort to make it work on me.
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Colorstay Liquid Lip in Citrus

I found this stuff on clearance a while ago. I don't dislike it as much as the other reviewers. It goes on a sheer, shimmery light orange color that's really flattering. They are drying, but not terrible. I just use lipgloss on top and it's not noticeable at all. The color doesn't stay any longer than any other liquid lipstick though.

I just tried this stuff in nude, which is too dark for me. I kind of like that though, since it's sheer. I look like I just got a nice, light tan. It takes a little while to dry, but it's really nice. Makes me glow.
