Absolute HG eyeshadow!!!!! Heist, where have you been all my life??? This is the most fabulous matte eyeshadow I have ever used. The color itself is a mix of grey, taupe, and soft plum. It looks amazing with my blue eyes. The product itself is so incredibly smooth, silky, and blendable. I highly recommend this to everyone - it has replaced my former HG eyeshadow, MAC Shale. I will use this forever and ever - it is the BEST!!!!!!! Bravo to Urban Decay!!!!!!!

This is a new HG product of mine. It is the most beautiful medium cool brownish grey color - looks spectacular with blue eyes. Lasts all day and never budges. I actually have been using this as an eyeliner, and it works magnificent. Highly, highly recommend!!!
Eyeliner -Too Faced - Metal Eyed Liquid Shimmer Eyeliner in Dirt Bag

This is my HG eyeliner!!!! I am absolutely in love with this product. It applies like a dream, smoothly & effortlessly, with a nice razor thin brush. Even for beginners, this product is very easy to apply - it glides on like butter, and once dry, it does not crack at all, lasts all day, and does not budge, even on my oily eyelids. The staying power is amazing. This liner makes my eyes shine & stand out. The color, Dirt Bag, makes my blue eyes pop like nothing else. The color is a beautiful purplish brown. It kind of reminds me of MAC eyeshadow in Shale. In fact, that is what I usually pair this liner with! I highly, highly recommend this product!!!!
Moisturizers -Neutrogena - Combination Skin Moisture Oil Free

This is my HG moisturizer. It is the perfect consistency, and is not the slightest bit greasy feeling. It absorbs beautifully into my skin, and gives amazing results. I apply this in the morning to clean skin before I apply my makeup, and it is quite simply the best moisturizer I have ever used. And unlike pretty much all other moisturizers that I've tried, it does not break me out. I love, love, love this product!!!! Highly recommend!!!!!
HG lip liner!!! This color is a beautiful nude pink, and a very close match to my actual lip color. It applies smoothly and easily, and does not budge. You just can't beat this for the price!
My review is for the eyeliner product that is gold-colored on the outside, and has a felt-tip applicator. I had heard that this is a much cheaper alternative to Lancome's artliners, and I must agree! These work just as good as the artliners and for much, much less! This product is about the easiest liquid liner to apply that you will ever find. The color I have is Earthen Rock Brown, and this is a true, beautiful brown, without any red tones whatsoever. The eyeliner does not budge, and is totally waterproof and smudgeproof on me. I highly recommend this product!
What a great blush for such an inexpensive price! This color is beautiful - definitely gives me that flushed, just in from the cold look. This is my everyday, go-to blush.
Lotions/ Creams -Aveeno - Daily Moisturizing Lotion
sschroed 2/11/2010 1:12:00 PM
This is truly the best lotion I have ever used. I could not get by without it, especially during the winter when my hands would otherwise be extremely dry and cracked. It is the richest, thickest, creamiest lotion, and you only need to apply it once to see (and feel) the results. I always put this on before I go to bed, and I wake up with soft, beautiful skin. Highly, highly recommend!!!!
This color is perfect for those who still want great definition to their eyes, but a softer option than black. Bobbi Brown's gel liners are fabulous. They are totally waterproof & smudgeproof on me, and I have very oily eyelids. It applies like a dream. The color is a neutral grey - perfect for blue eyes. I highly recommend!
HG eyelash curler!!!! I have pretty much tried them all, and this one wins hands down. I have deep set eyes, and this is the only one that curls ALL of my lashes. This curler makes such a difference in my lashes - I could never go without this item!
HG conditioner!!!! You just can't beat this for the price and the results it gives. I have long, thick, color-treated hair, and this leaves my hair soft, manageable and tangle-free. It is very thick and creamy. It beats out more expensive conditioners that I've used in the past. Definitely try it out!
You can't beat this shampoo!!! The price is VERY reasonable, and the results are excellent!!! I have color-treated hair, and it always leaves my hair very soft and manageable. It lathers up so well too. A great buy!!!
Eye Makeup Remover -Neutrogena - Oil Free eye makeup remover
sschroed 2/11/2010 12:49:00 PM
This is a HG product for me!!! It removes eye makeup like nothing else I've ever tried. It's super gentle, and not oily at all. Even removes waterproof mascara quite easily. I highly recommend!!!!
Must have eyeshadow shade!!!! Looks amazing for a smoky eye or an everyday look. Great cool-toned shade, perfect for blue eyes. It's an absolutely perfect color of greyish-brown. Great color payoff, and it blends like a dream. Highly recommend!!!!!
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)
sschroed 10/9/2009 3:34:00 PM
This product is a miracle worker for me!!!! I have the oiliest lids in the world, and until I started using this product, I could NEVER wear eyeshadow, mascara, and eyeliner without it smearing, creasing and turning into a huge mess all over my lids after only a short amount of time!!! This has put a stop to all of that permanentally!!! This product is absolutely essential to me - without it, I might as well not even bother wearing any eye makeup at all. To apply it, I dot a little of the product onto each eyelid and then blend in with my finger until it disappears into my skin. I have not had any problem getting every ounce of the product out of the container it comes in due to the angled applicator, and the product truly lasts forever! I use it EVERY day and have had it for over six months, and it still seems to have a ton left in it! Highly, highly recommend!!!!!!!!!!!!
