This colour is very similar to MAC's Craving l/s, another lipstick I absolutely love. Berry Rich is a shade or two lighter though but on my lips, they look the same. I find Berry Rich is creamier and lasts longer. I love that I have a dupe for Craving for half the price!
Hands down the worst concealer I've ever used, even worse than the random drug store concealer I used to use as a teen. This does nothing to hide my dark circles, it looks cakey if you apply too much and I find it hard to blend. I'll stick to the Studio Finish.
This blush has become my HG blush! I use about 4 dabs to get a rosy look to my cheeks and I use 1 dab when I want it to be toned down. I used to have an issue with my powder blushes fading throughout the day, but what I now do is apply one dab Laid Back and then apply my powder blush and it stays on all day! I would definitely buy it again, but I probably won't need to for a long time.
I bought the Black greasepaint from the Style Black collection and I'm in love! I wore it as eyeliner to test it out and it didn't smudge or budge. I played around with it and used it as a base with Leisuretime (shimmery purple) on top and it looks so pretty and sultry. I would definitely buy this product again in any other colour.
Hair Color -Garnier - Nutrisse Permanent Creme Hair Color

I have naturally dark brown hair with a gold tone to it; it's very weird. So weird that I felt the need to dye it. I've wanted black hair since I was 13, but never had the guts to do it. I bought Garnier Nutrisse Permanent Creme Hair Colour in Blue Black hoping for my hair colour to come out like Charlize Theron in Aeon Flux. The colour was fine, but after my first wash, the colour started fading significantly. I dyed my hair back in March, and it's now a chocolate brown, and almost back to my natural hair colour! The process was fairly easy and I like that there was no dripping. I won't be buying this again due to it's lack of staying power.
I had first used this product almost 5 years ago because I was bored and wanted a hint of colour. The colours I used were Red Pulse and Funky Purple and I loved them. Fast forward 5 years and I once again used Colour Pulse, this time in Electric Black. The mousse has a pleasant fruit scent, but it's really messy. My natural hair colour is a caramel shade with random gold thrown in. Electric Black turned my hair a dark brown shade with a hint of purple. It's a nice shade but not what I want. It faded very quickly; after my second wash! It's a great product nonetheless. I would recommend this to anyone that wants to colour their hair but isn't ready to jump into the permanent territory.
Liquid -MAC - Mineralize Satinfinish SPF 15 Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

I really wanted to like this product, but it seems like MAC foundations just aren't for me. I had originally used this product when I had gotten my makeup done at a MAC counter for prom. The foundation lasted throughout the night and I was satisfied, so I wanted to buy it. I'm an NC45 and I had tried Studio Tech but that turned orange on me and Select Tint faded throughout the day, so I wanted something that would last. The pros to this foundation is that it has good coverage and when it's blended properly, gives a flawless finish to the skin. The only con I have, and it's a big con, is that it breaks me out. After I wear it, I end up with small bumps, mostly on my cheeks and I don't like that. Sadly, I only wear this foundation for special occasions and I'm still searching for a good foundation that doesn't break me out and lasts all day.
I bought this mascara back in February because of all the hype I had heard about it and you can imagine how annoyed I was that I fell into the hype. I could only wear ONE layer of it, or else it would clump and flake off. I gave it two lippies because it did add volume to my lashes, but the Estee Lauder mascara I was using before not only added volume, but added length too. Of course the genius that I am bought the big bottle that cost $30, instead of getting the little bottle. Oh well, I'll definitely not be buying this ever again.
I love this lipglass! It's a nice bright pink that would look great paired with Girl About Town l/s. You can apply it lightly onto your lips to get a hint of pink, or you can apply it thickly and get a great vivid pink look. Dejarose on top of Up the Amp l/s is hot sex. I'm going to have to get a back up of this.
I wanted to like this, but I hate it. I have combo skin and I rarely break out, but Imperialis caused me to break out on my cheeks. My mom, who has oily skin likes it. I will not be buying this again and I'll stick to my Aveeno products.
Highlighters -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish in Gold Deposit (Rococo)

I actually just got this today from the Goldplay 2005 colour story. I love the feeling of the skin finish and it goes great with my NC-45 skin tone. I gives me a very nice glow. It also makes my cheeks stand out more. I'm going to try wearing it as a wash on my eyes!
Let me just say, this lipstick is wonderful!! I wasn't expecting to get Rebelrose and I happen to get it with B2M. I'm glad I got it. I'm NC-45 and it's sheer enough for me to get away with it. On me, it's a sheer fuschia with lots of sparkle. I took a lippie off because the sparkles seem to get everywhere on me. I like wearing Rebelrose with Flashmode lustreglass over it or Love Nectar over.
I love lustreglass. It's a nice peachy- apricot shade, that appears nude on my lips. It has subtle sparkles in it and the nice creamy texture that all lustreglasses have. I would definitely buy this again.
Annabelle is my favourite brand to buy eyeliners! I recommend it for those just beginning to wear eyeliner.
I think this lipgloss is alright. It tastes and smells great. I love the packaging. My favourite is the Watermelon flavour. One problem is the ball doesn't get much on my lips and I happen to shake it and the ball fell out.
