#200 WOW! New Holy Grail Drugstore brand!!

I picked this up at the drugstore. Wonderful sponge applicator, able to reach all parts of my face including the corners of my eyes! A shade slightly lighter than my natural skin color but it’s very brightening! Medium coverage. Hides everything but natural looking. Very breathable! So love this brand! Purchased at Walgreens.

Best concealer I ever used! Use it underneath my eye and on the eyelids. Takes 2 1/2 seconds to apply. Spreads very easily, lightweight, doesn't crease, & covers like a dream. Have no idea why Fresh discontinued it and can't find anything that compares. If you do please let me know!

HG Blush

My HG Blush used to be NARS Orgasm and Super Orgasm. This is a near perfect dupe but at a fraction of the price.

Beautiful on my skin, subtle color, makes my face glow, looks great in pictures, no creases, lasts all day, even consistency.

The only thing that I would change about the packaging is I would make it thinner and add a mirror.

HG Eye Shadow
I am heartbroken that Smashbox discontinued this.

I have been wearing Smashbox Eye Shadow in "Shell" and "Brazilian Bronze" since 2009. Not a week goes by where someone doesn't compliment me. And when they ask the name of the eye shadow they write down what I say.

The formula:
No need for a primer, lasts all day, no …

I am heartbroken that Smashbox discontinued this and am now panicking to find something similar.

Whoa! I think I like this better than the 2012 version of Diorshow (nonwaterproof) and YSL Volume Effect Faux Cils!
Full, black lashes with amazing length and separation!!
The only thing I don't like about it is the container is too THICK!!.
If they fixed that, this would be my HG Drugstore brand mascara!

I have this in #3 for medium skin with olive undertones.
You need a tiny bit. Glides on easily, cooling effect, creaseless, lasts all day. I also use as an eye primer. A bit expensive but nothing works or matches my skintone better than this.
Sephora doesn't carry this shade anymore -- I got mine directly from Fresh.com.

HG Lipliner. I have #13 Nude Beige and it is one shade darker than my natural lip color. Very well pigmented. Doesn't glide on quickly but it definitely stays put. I wear neutrals often but it looks good with almost any color. Very expensive $29 and is often sold out, plus the cap doesn't always stay on. However, the pencil lasts for years!

I got this in Sparkling Papaya 18. Comes in a wand that does not dispense too much. Smells nice. Pretty on its own, but warms up darker colors very well. The shimmer is a tiny bit scratchy, which is why I would use it on top of another lipstick or a lip balm. Not as pigmented with a different container but is very shiny, pretty by itself,and also makes darker colors look warmer and brighter …Read more
