Treatments -Sally Hansen - Kwik off nailpolish remover

This is my little lifesaver! I leave it in my car, and I can remove my bright nailpolish in under a minute for my conservative workplace. I just LOVE it. Thank you Sally Hansen!!! PS - it smells really good!!
To use this mascara you need a lash comb. But it is worth it! The best falsh lash like effect - mega length and volume - but it is a lot of work.

While this foundation gives me the ULTIMATE finish, it also makes me break out like a mofo. I am PINING to find another forumla that makes my skin look this fantastic, this flawless, this awesome. I don't think it'll ever happen though :(
Eye Shadow -Hard Candy - Eye Shadow Quartet - Suede
tablet21 2/9/2007 9:25:00 PM
This is my first Hard Candy eyeshadow quartet, as I could not resist the stunning look of it on the Sephora website. SO I took a chance and purchased, even though there were no reviews here on MUA.
I am so glad I did. The shadows wear beautifully, and are not so much shimmery as they are mettalic. They gleam on my eyelids, and I confess to loving the nuetral shades of the pallette, and wearing them more, than the blue which I bought it for in the first place!!
I have recieved many compliments, and they last and last. The texture is a little hard, kind of like a MAC Veluxe Pearl rather than a soft Stila eyeshadow. However, no one could ever describe them as "chalky". The hardness means you don't get any fallout from the shadows on your cheeks (a problem I often have with softer shadows!) and the colour pay off is excellent.
A hearty, enthused and smitten two thumbs up from me!!
Do I Lilac it? I SURE DO!!!! Its such a gorgeous chic colour. The perfect lilac which received so many compliments on both my fingers and toes. Perfect for something a little different, and I plan to wear it a lot through spring!
I adore this vibrant bright glorious coral shade!!! The green irridescence is so subtle, but when it catches my eye it makes me smile. Two coats is enough for a perfect finish, and the shade is truly unique and dressy, on toes and long or short fingernails. Swoon!!
I bought two tubes of this I love it so much. My favourite gloss for mega shine and almost no colour (with the subtle golden shimmer just making my lips look that bit plumper and more delicious). The smell is perfection, I bought it initially for the smell alone. And then I tried it. And it is a holy grail for me. It even tastes good!
This bright is an interesting shade. After reading the MUA reviews I thought it would be perfect for me. Unfortunately, on my pale skin, this is not a grape/apple green at all. It is far too yellow a green for that. On me it is a green-tinged yellow, and quite hideous. I was expecting a fresh shade, not this jaundice inspired acidic nightmare. Its also really sheer, but more pigmented than some brights. I would not repurchase and I am incredibly disappointed.
This is the ultimate eyeshadow wash of colour for my blue eyes and NW20/20 watts skin. It shimmers, glimmers and at the same time melts into skin. Perfect buttery Stila texture, in a warm sheen of colour. Depending on the light I can see gold, peach, and pewter within the shimmer. A complex and wonderful neutral shadow. Must try.
I am completely in love. <> > For weeks and weeks I let Aqualine just sit among my make up collection. I would occasionally swipe it on my hand just to admire the amazing colour, the sheen, the pigment... The perfection. However, I could not bring myself to wear it as there was no occasion, and I was in make up rutsville. <> > Enter this last week. With a wash of Stila Starlight, some MAC Patina in the crease and outer lid, and a line of this on the upper lashline, I have fallen so deeply in love. The colour of aqualine is like an improved liquid Parrot to me - makes my blue eyes bluer, and the whites of my eyes brighter. With black mascara on my lashes its not too dramatic, and no one has said "I like your eyeliner" just repeated compliments of "You look AMAZING!" <> > Thank you Aqualine.

While this does the job in applying my mineral foundation, I think it would be more suited to my exfoliation regime... That's never a good sign!!
I feel I should review this as I bought it on Strawberrynet blind, having seen no pictures or heard no reviews! I am very glad I did. Its a beautiful lipglaze, and I can see it being my staple summer lip - a glorious pale pink with golden shimmer. It reminds me of MAC Nymphette lipglass, but so much more wearable, as it isn't as frosty nor as sticky. The scent is nothing offensive. Doesn't smell like melon to me at all. Just mild and sweet. I'd definitely recommend it.
This is a very, well, pretty blush. Its a cool lavendary based pink on me, with a nice amount of shimmer. However, on my neutral skin, I think this often looks too cool-toned, so I don't wear it often. Would look amazing on cool toned lasses though!
Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel in Ostentatious

If you bought this for the green shimmer, arguably, you will be disapointed at first. I know I was. But on application it is the most perfect slightly cooler rich brown on me. And I am smitten. I have Rich Ground, but I believe Ostentatious is so much more beautiful on my blue eyes and pale skin (MAC NW20, Stila 20 watts) But don't buy it for the shimmer!!!!

YUM!!! Cardammom and perfect!! I just love love love this. Makes me happy when I apply it, and somehow it is also calming and beautiful. Wonderfully moisturising too, but even if it wasn't I'd keep using it just for the smell! My brother adores the smell too, but can't bare to carry around the pink packaging.
