i love all NARS glosses because they are incredibly sticky. i know some people hate that, but i love it because it means they stay on all night. they stay super shiny too. revolt is a very pretty sheer plummy color that looks nice with my fair skin. i got it in a swap, and was really frightened when i opened it up because it looks almost like a dark, dark, dark purple-ish brown in the tube, but it goes on lovely! i'd repurchase.
Blush -MAC - Cream Color Base in Fantastic Plastic

i love this product. i swapped for it because i'd been curioous about CCBs. i have a really hard time getting blush to stick to my face for some reason, so i use this as a base for my blush, or i wear it all by itself. by itself it gives me a very subtle, glowy, doll cheek look, and it makes all my blushes, drugstore and high-end, last forever and go on more pigmented. i'd repurchase, and plan to try other MAC CCBs.
this stuff is terrible. it didn't make me look tan, just sort of orange or peachy, and i have the darker 'baked bronze' color! you'd think it would make me darker, and i'm pale. also, it isn't shimmery like a lot of bronzers are, but instead has huge chinky glitter in it. i do not want glitter all over my face. so basically, the effect was, not really tanner looking, and a covered with glitter. will not repurchase.

this is such an amazing product. it's like a NARS multiple but is far superior (blends better, easier to apply, creamier, better finish). it's a pink/bronze color that gives my NC20 skin a gorgeous summer look that is just shimmery enough to make me look glowy, but not scary and glittery. a million raves.
this is such a beautiful and unique color. it's a purpley-mauve color with gold sparkles. it's one of the few darker e/s shades i can wear on the lid. i love pairing it with most of the colors i have, but i especially like using it with sketch, vapour, mink pink and macroviolet fluidline to do a reddish mauve smoky eye.
this was too sheer on me, and too smudgy. i like a mor eprecise line than i can get with powerpoints. i like my fluidline is waveline much better.
this was just OK for me. i swapped it away when i got macroviolet fluidline, which was the color i wanted from permaplum. permaplum was so dark i couldn't even really tell it was purple. it was also a little too smudgy for me and didn't apply as smoothly as i like.

these are OK. they do make my hair shinier but they don't do that great of a job at keeping it looking that way for long periods of time. i like that these don't have a strong smell and don't weigh my hair down. i will use up the bottle i have (which will take forever i'm sure) but will try something different when i do and not repurchase.

ok, i still gave this four lippes because everyone loves it, and is has such a beautiful texture and finish. the color was awful on me though. it really washed me out. i can't wear silvery shades though. i'm going to stop trying. me = NC20 olive undertones, pale green eyes, brown hair
this is a gorgeous golden color with a great texture. it goes on so smooth and shiny. it really brightens up my whole face when i have it on. i love to wear it with UD lounge in the crease or with MAC bronze, hepcat, or cranberry.
this product is pretty reasonably priced at $9.50. my favorite thing about it is that the shade i have (pitchblack) is SO black. it is hard for me so find mascara that is still really black after it dries and doesn't turn grey. it also is one of the only mascara i have found that will keep my stubborn, short, straight lashes curled. i only gave it four lippies because i have to work really hard to unclump it. i only wear this on days when i have time and energy for serious quality time with my eyelash comb. otherwise i just use l'oreal voluminous and head out the door.
this hair conditioner smells amazing and makes my hair very soft and manageable. i just wish i could find it in a pump bottle. i haven't noticed that my highlights have faded at all so it must work for that as well!
i got some samples packets of this and now i'm going to buy it. perfect on my normal-dry skin. i love wearing it under makeup. it makes my face feel soft and look glowy. it might be expensive, but i only need a little bit to cover my whole face, so it's worth it.
this is the perfume my mom wears. it doesn't smell so good on me, but on her it smells amazing! it's a very bright, warm scent. like most scents you just have to try it out on yourself before you buy it. i'll repurchase this for my mom when it runs out!

this stays on a very long time, but the color is sort of boring. it's just a pale silvery off-white. i use it every once in a while but i wouldn't repurchase.
