  • Flirt! I'm Whipped Eyeshadow Mousse

    Flirt! I'm Whipped Eyeshadow Mousse

    Sheer and Shimmery shadows (with a caveat)

    The good points? Gorgeous colors, easy to apply with a pinkie finger or brush, SUPER easy to blend, great to use as a base for adding shimmery powder over, can also double as a facial highlighter depending on the color you use (or even body shimmer-again, depending on color) The bad points? Creasing! Within an hour it creased on me (though not so much IF you layer something over it) and also, it can spread very thin if you try to blend it-kind of hard to keep it from blending sheer unless you "dab" it on. These aren't expensive though and work nicely with other products-just takes a bit more work than some people may want to put into it!

    Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes

    My new FAVORITE eye liner (well, with no glitter in it : )

    I don't even need to add my 2p since so many others have already raved, but why not...when you are in love; you want to tell the world, right? : ) WOW. This stuff ROCKS. I want to go out and buy one of each haha...it's just so rare to find an eyeliner that not only has a such a range of amazing colors, but also that goes on super-easy. Of course, the fact that it refuses to come off come h*** or hight water is just an uber-perk. I keep resisting the urge to stockpile since whenever I like something this much; it seems to then get taken off the market-arrrggh! Hey Make Up For Ever people; DON'T EVER get rid of this product. thank you : )

    Too Faced Shimmer Veils

    Glitter RULES the day : )

    So, let's get the obvious out of the way first...this is VERY glitter-y! So if you (DUH) don't LIKE glitter than do NOT use it! I hate when people trash glitter-y products because they in particular don't like to shimmer or sparkle...well then, don't use things that have a lot of either in them-sheesh. Anyhow, the 9 vs 10 is to warn you to try these at Sephora first on your hand as the color and way it goes on is a bit different than how it looks in the (super cute!) bottle. I like "angel wings" best, but these are all great shades to wear out clubbing or as fantasy-esque makeup. Just do note, as I said above, these are not subtle on the glitter so might be a bit much if you're in a cubicle all day haha. sparkles rule : )

  • Aquolina Pink Sugar Eau de Toilette Spray

    Ok, I'll be the first to admit it-you either really LOVE or HATE this smell! On the love side would obviously be anyone who is into anything that smells very sweet and girly. The fragrance really lasts and evolves nicely into something slightly more mellow. The mousse is actually quite light and would work for Summer without feeling too heavy. The scent is also just right. I'm a big fan of body scrubs, but test a bit first to make sure it doesn't irritate your skin! The best is to layer everything so the scent lasts...I also like to spray my clothes with it to have the faint sweetness follow me around : ) and yes, guys do love it-just don't overdo!

  • Too Faced Sparkler Glamour Gloss

    Too Faced Sparkler Glamour Gloss

    Beautiful opalescent colors for your lips!

    I utterly adore these glosses as the color is very subtle but the shine is amazing! Unlike some glosses that look pretty in the tube, but then fall flat when you apply them; these truly do catch the light and reflect an opalescent sheen. I like these for going to a club or for use with more Spring/Summery outfits as the color is delicate. Also, gotta love the applicator-cute way to get product out without a big gooey mess. So far I own two and will surely get "backups" just in case they stop making them (the story of my life, sigh)

  • Tarte Vitamin Infused Lip Gloss Powered by Borba

    This is hands-down the BEST tasting gloss I've ever used! You have to fight the urge to lick it right off haha...the colors are subtle and there is just the perfect amount of sparkle and shine. It lasts quite a while and is especially good when the weather is harsh (middle of Summer or Winter). It will suck if they stop making this as I fear they have since I haven't seen it for a while...better stock up if I do I guess!

  • Olay Age Defying Classic Eye Gel

    Olay Age Defying Classic Eye Gel

    The ONLY thing that works on my eyes!!

    I started using this maybe four or five years ago and it is the ONLY thing I can put on my eyes that doesn't irritate them. It feels so soothing, has no obnoxious smell, and really helps me to look awake when I'm not hahaha. I am in my 20s and am not quite ready for stronger antiaging stuff so this has been perfect for me...also like the fact I'm trying to take care of my skin early before I need to worry too much!!

  • Vincent Longo Eye Shimmer Souffle

    Vincent Longo Eye Shimmer Souffle

    Stunning colors with gorgeous shimmer : )

    I never buy anything from this brand, but happen to be wasting time in Sephora one day and wandered over because a display of these eye shimmers caught my eye...WOW! This strikes me as a more 'conservative' brand-not like Makeup Forever etc and yet these colors are vibrant and shimmery-strong enough to even use for stage makeup if needed. I am a dancer/singer and am thrilled to find something I can use both for everyday-and for stage...the trick is to leave it more sheer during the day. My only warning is that if you are one of those anti-glitter/shimmer folks then you will not be happy as these have a definite sparkle to them (which I personally love!) Also try the new color pots from Makeup Forever or the Cargo Eye Shimmers.

    Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer

    EVERYone loves this stuff, right? Admit it! : )

    I have yet to meet another woman who doesn't have at least one of these stashed in her purse or at home...it still amazes me that for less than $5 I can get a lipstick (for to me the color is closer to lipstick than a gloss) that is a good color (at least three of them look great on me!), lasts a while, and has such a nice minty flavor! I am a Sephora makeup 'junkie' but still skulk over to Borders to pick these up every couple months...if this isn't a cult favorite than I don't know what is :)

  • Ulta Glitter Salon Formula Nail Laquer

    Ulta Glitter Salon Formula Nail Laquer

    If you just love glittery nails...

    This stuff is REALLY fantastic IF you dig glitter : ) I can't see why anyone would buy it if they didn't, but I've read some pretty funny "oh my God there is just TOO much sparkle in this" reviews of various products that have glitter in them. This always makes me beg the question-uh, what did you think something with glitter in it would look like?! anyways, so this delivers on both being cheap AND being super sparkly. Did I mention that it also lasts forever? My toenails have had the silver-y version on them for almost a month with nary a chip...honestly though, I think it's just that glitter polish in general chips less since glitter is harder to get off your nails! (plain old acetone works best, btw) So, if you are looking for intense, long-lasting, and cheap sparkly polish-look no further : ) PS The 9 is because I know they are now making polishes that don't have as many nasty chemicals and feel there is no reason for ALL polishes to follow suit!
