I use this as a setting powder and I LOVE it. I use Revlon Colorstay and put this over it to set it. It makes my foundation look nice and smooth and keeps my face less oily througout the day. I use to use MACs mineralize skinfinish, but this gives me the same effect I got from that. I purchased my first one after I had ran out of my mineralize and I am about to run out of this one since I use it everyday. At this price, Id buy this over MAC any day. :)
I bought this in the color Blackest Black, and I have to say I LOVE it. I wasnt too sure about buying this since I did not like the original Great Lash - it didnt do anything special for me. But this one, WOW it makes my lashes looks so good with just ONE coat! With lash blast it took me like 2-3 coats to get the look I get with this one. I will keep buying as long as they keep making it. I think a lot of it has to do with the brush. I love the price of this too! Under $5!

I LOVE this scent! LOVE LOVE LOVE! There are quite a few VS scents I dont care for - which I havent written reviews for yet, but I really do Love this one. It smells so nice. Fresh, fruity, and sexy all at the same time! Maybe a lil bit musky too? As this scent wears off/ drys down, it smells just as good as it did when first sprayed, just softer. I was so nervous about buying this without smelling it first because I ordered online during a sale, and i got it for $25, when it is normally $59! So glad I took the plunge. Not only is this bottle adorable, the smell is lovely! I hope this stays in their lineup of fragrances, because if it does I will keep buyng.

Loved it at first; it went on smooth and packaging was easy to use, but it broke me out. Not for me.
Love it! I wear NC20 and it matches me perfectly. Covers everything and makes my skin look amazing! Only problem is it rubs off. I set it with MSFN in Medium. UPDATE 11/2012 I only use Revlon Colorstay now.Works the best for me and NEVER rubs off like this. Been buying it for months and using exclusively. If any of you want something cheaper that compares, and lasts longer, go with Revlon. :)
I have this in the body spray, body lotion, hand and body cream,EDT, and body wash. This use to be my favorite scent for a long time. I started wearing it in high school, but now I am just tired of it. Ever since I got pregnant, and even now that my baby is 2 months old, It doesnt smell as good to me as it use to. It kind of smells platicky I guess. I dont know how to describe it. It also smells a little like fruit loops lol - which smells good. But when choosing my fragrances from VS id rather have Pure seduction or Amber romance.
I have this in the body spray, body lotion, and shower gel. At first I did not like this scent because I had only smelled it out of the bottle and never sprayed it on myself. Out of the bottle it smells bad, very strong and almost like pomogranate to me. But once sprayed on the body it smells so good! It is sweet and floral at the same time. I love it. I use to like Love Spell, but now it just smells cheap and plasticky on me. I would choose this over Love Spell any day. This and Amber Romance are my two favorites, and they are two VERY different scents.
I dont use this that often but it is really good at concealing redness. Works great around the nose or on acne. You have to apply very little though because you will look very ashy or green if it is too much and not enough foundation is covered over it. I would buy this again if I ever ran out, but I really dont see it happening so I put no lol.
I wouldn't consider this a bronzer because it is too light and my skin is by no means dark. I'm a NC20. I do consider this one of the best highlighters I have ever used though. I would buy this again as a highlighter for sure.
I love this brush for foundation, but for blush it sucks. For blush it doesnt apply it great, but when using this brush for liquid foundation its amazing. No streaks and no shedding... plus its super soft! I will buy this brush again, but only to use it with liquid foundation.
This is my favorite blush from BE. It can look like a natural flush or you can pack it on for night. Its great for everyday.
This is a pretty good product but its just not for me. I really prefer the look that my rimmel brow pencil gives me, or my powder I have. This one just didnt fill in the spots I really needed it to. Its great if you just want to make your brows looked groomed, but not if your trying to fill in areas and really define them. I would recomment anyone to give it a try though. Most of the time you can get it for $1.50 by using a coupon. Well worth it.
Palettes -E.L.F. - ENDLESS EYES 100 EYESHADOW PALETTE

I bought this palette back in November not too long after it first came out. I was very impressed with this palette, and still am. It has a really good variety of colors, and lots of shimmer colors, which I love. You could use this palette everyday. I would repurchase, but I dont think I will have to, its also a great gift to give someone. :)
I wasnt too sure about this when I ordered it, but something told me it would be good from all the reviews on here and Avon, and since it has been around a long time. I got it in the mail and sprayed it on as soon as I got it. It has a really nice fresh scent to it, and I dont think it could offend anyone. It also does not smell like little girls perfume, although it would be good as a first perfume since it is light and fresh. So anyways, all day after I had sprayed this my husband kept coming up to me and commenting on how good I smelled and would say it everytime he kissed me. He told me I smelled how a woman should smell lol. So im guessing he means nice and fresh by this. He hardly ever comments on my perfume so this was a plus for me. It seems guys do really like this one. Since my husband likes it so much I will repurchase when I run out. The roll-on deoderant is really nice too.
Hands down, the BEST drugstore foundation there is! It covers well, and stays matte nearly all day. It also applies really nice if you do one section at a time, and there are a lot of color options, so you will find a perfect match. My favorite formula is the Combo/Oily one. Stays on all day, and covers really well. I look like I have perfect skin when I wear this. This and bare minerals are the only foundations I have bought several times. Its the BEST!
