Every time I look at it I can't believe I got it for $10. I feel like I robbed Stila lol. They all look nice and flatter my skin tone, I love Kitten and Lame the best. I wish I would have bought two...this has really opened the door for me I reach for these more than my MAC shadows. I wouldn't describe them as shimmer more than they have a pearl like sheen to them. Very pretty, awesome bargain, and I will cry when I hit pan.
Really pretty just a little sticky. On a windy day it's annoying but it's not enough to keep me from wearing it. It has awesome staying power too, I have no idea how but I took a nap and I still had it on my lips when I woke up.
Mascara -Hard Candy - Ginormous Lash Volumizing Mascara

I bought this in electric blue to bring out my brown eyes and I was really amazed. I coat it 2-3 times and it looks like false lashes, I also got a couple compliments on it and they wanted to know what brand it was. When my regular tube expires I am going to get another one in brown or black.
Gorgeous! I just love the smell of MAC lipsticks...anyways I was really scared this might be really close to CB96 or something else in my collection but it's very unique. I just felt like it warmed up my whole skin tone (nw20) it has all the right flattering warm undertones to it. I wear very little eye makeup with it and it looks so pretty, my new hg ;-)
HG! This stuff is amazing! I was waiting to write a review because I didn't want to jinx it but it really did help my skin. If I put it on the painful under the skin pimples it clears them up 80% of the time not only that I had tiny bumps under the skin that look horrible and nothing was clearing them up (not even the drying lotion) so fed up I put this on all over them and I woke up and they were noticeable small and the next night most had disappeared the following morning! I am going to continue using this until they are all gone and if by chance more decide to torment me.
Skincare is so subjective because what might for me may not work for you and vice versa but I wanted to put it out there if other people were having problems with the tiny blemishes under the skin. The consistency was hard to get used to at first but now use a cotton ball or q-tip which is much easier for it to apply with out running all over the place.
Lipstick -Revlon - ColorBurst in 070 Soft Nude [DISCONTINUED]

Really glad I got this (there was one left). I saw a lot of bloggers swatching and I immediately knew I wanted it! It was kinda expensive for a DS lipstick but I am happy with it. I think it flatters most skin tones its a nude but still has a soft pink to it, very pretty ;-)
Besides the DD Gel, I think this is useless. I saw no real difference in my skin and I had been using it for 2 months. You only hear good things about this unless you have immaculate skin or you're a Clinique rep. While I do still like this brand...this needs to be reformulated. There are plenty of better things at the closest counter or even the drugstore free of harsh chemicals.
WOW! I am in love with liquid foundation again. As soon as I heard about this I went to the closest Clinique counter. I was really skeptical that it was going to hold up on my oily skin but it actually did a really good job, it really exceeded my expectations and more! It has really nice build-able coverage. This is my first day using it so I have no idea how it does with clearing up acne but I was just so excited I couldn't wait, will edit later ;-)
Powder -Shiseido - The Makeup Powdery Foundation SPF 15
strawberryblonde86 4/10/2010 2:25:00 AM
I have been on a powder foundation kick and this so far is the best I have tried. I have been using it for almost a month now and it has never broke me out and keeps me matte for 4-5 hrs and longer at night. It gives medium coverage with a kabuki and full if you use the sponge. I still kinda want to try Studio Fix but I have a feeling I will go back to this because I have no real complaints about it.
I like it but I don't love it and don't always reach for it. It looks pretty but maybe just not on me, kinda comes off orangey on my nw20 skin...maybe for summer it will look better? I also think it looks better on green eyes.
What can I say that hasn't been said? It is a gorgeous shade, you can make it a neutral everyday look and then add something to it for a night time look. Anyone who is new to MAC should pick this one up, you won't be disappointed ;-)
Very pretty peachy coral/pink blush. It is highly pigmented so only a light application is only needed for more fair complexions. It leaves a really nice flush to my cheeks, I think so far this is my favorite MAC blush.
Great pencil, I have one in Khaki Shimmer and it's a rich dark grey with gold flecks. I would even say its a great dupe for Urban Decay's 24/7 pencil. I had it on all night at a party and it stayed put, plus it's around $6. The only con is there is not a lot of color choices like Urban Decay has.
Shampoo -Organix - Rejuvenating Cherry Blossom Ginseng Shampoo
strawberryblonde86 3/9/2010 9:48:00 PM
I love this line of shampoos and conditioners! I have been using Organix for months now and this one is my favorite so far, it smells like candy and always leaves my hair soft and manageable. I really recommend the whole line it's a great value and the two main ingredients are organic plus it has no sulfates or parabens.
I exchanged the colossal to get this and so far so good. It really makes my lashes bigger and thicker. I only apply to my top lashes though because when I did it to my bottom, I noticed it smeared a bit. I think for drugstore mascaras its worth a try especially if you already have long lashes and you just want volume.
