I LOVE this lipgloss. The color is divine (especially when applied sheerly) on my pale, cool-toned self. I love the buildable quality of the gloss, the deep pigmentation, and the yummy scent. I got this 75% off at CVS and am going back to stock up before they're all gone. The purpley/berry color is like my lips but better and can be combined with many combinations of eye makeup and blush …Read more

I bought a back-up of this eyeshadow today. It is the smoothest, most natural cream-colored, matte eyeshadow I've ever tried. It blends like a dream and serves as the perfect base for all my eyeshadows, or I love it alone for my "natural" days. I also use it, thanks to the suggestion of a previous reviewer, on top of my concealer underneath my eyes to create that …Read more

I think I can now stop searching for my perfect MLBB lipstick. This color barely heightens my naturally pink-mauve-ish lips and adds a touch of shine and moisture. I love it. The packaging could definitely be improved, but for the price tag I won't complain. I will absolutely repurchase when I run out, as this has become my go-to lipstick!

I love the color of this eyeliner. It wears similarly on me to MAC fluidliners (which I love), but I like HIPs color better because of the metallic element. I wore this paired with bronzey-orange eyeshadows and it wore well on my lid, but faded mid-way through the day on my waterline. I will continue to wear it on my lid, but I'm not sure I will purchase any other colors from HIPs line of …Read more

I got a large sample of this in a swap. I lovelovelove the color. It suits my brown eyes and pale (cool-toned) skin better than I ever expected. I love wearing this blended with Teal and Steel Blue pigments, with Lemon in the inner corner blended in. It's a lovely shade and is an unexpected highlight color that I will reach for over and over. Downside: I feel like I cannot wear it alone and …Read more

This is my favorite lipgloss of the summer (and I've tried *many*)! It's a slick, non-sticky gloss with relatively impressive staying power. I love the scent of it -- the smell alone is enough to make me want to reapply! The color however, it also a contributing factor. It's a sheer reddish color in the tube but goes onto my slightly pigmented lips nearly clear. I love the hint of …Read more

I'm on my third tube of this mascara, and I love it! It makes my lashes super-long and helps thicken them. It clumps somewhat easily, but I have found that problem to be more due to application issues rather than specific formulas of mascara, so I can work against it. It's a bargain at about $5 at Wal-Mart and sometimes cheaper when it's buy one, get one at the drugstores. Rimmel …Read more

I love this color. It's a pretty, sheer, pearly pink on my lips, and helps tone down some of my natural pigmentation into a pale, baby pink. It's super-versatile and was cheap because I got it at the Walgreen's buy one, get one free sale. I love the packaging of these. I also think that these are an excellent value for how long they last, but I will repurchase when I run out.

I ordered this after lemming it for a long time, and then reading all of the positive reviews on MUA. I am a pale brunette with mostly cool undertones. So far, I LOVE this stuff. Everyone is right about the amount -- I just barely touch my SK powder brush to the surface of the powder and then blend it into my cheeks. However, after blending, I usually do it again in order to get that pop of color …Read more
