    Clinique Almost Lipstick

    Expecting more, but still not bad

    I was a little bit disappointed after getting this in Black Honey, after all the reviews I'd read about it. I have to swipe it on my lips more than lipstick to see the color and it fades quite quickly. I love the berry stain though and how it's very comfortable on the lips, like a very light lip balm, and I like the slim and sleek tube.

    Shu Uemura High Performance Balancing Cleansing Oil

    Takes it all off without stripping skin

    I can't afford a full-size bottle of this stuff, so I bought the sample size at Sephora after repeatedly hearing rave reviews about it. I was pretty skeptical because my forehead tends to get oily. But wow, this is the first cleanser that really cleans my skin and doesn't leave it feeling tight after. I thought I would wake up the next day with an oily T-zone as I always do, but still no. My skin was still soft, clean and oil-free. My only peeve is the packaging, maybe it's only the sample size, but it was a little difficult getting it from bottle to hand to face.

    M.A.C. Eye Shadow

    I just wish I had more colors!

    I was given a lavender color called Maneater (?) and it is very flattering on my dark eyes. The pot is small, true, but you don't need so much (unlike other shadows where you really have to swipe your brush over it again and again) and the color is buildable, you can have it either sheer or more opaque. It really lasts until you're ready to take it off and, best of all, doesn't crease even after you've gotten sweaty or oily.

    Nars Blush

    All it's cracked up to be

    After reading rave reviews about this blush from everywhere - all the beauty magazines and online forums like this one - I finally picked up a compact last week and I am in LOVE! The color looks wonderful on me, and you only need a little bit for it to show on your face. It doesn't rub off or fade quickly either like many blushes. I was worried about the shimmer because I have combination skin and thought it might look more oily than shimmery but it is very very subtle, just enough to highlight your face. It's one of the most expensive blushes I've splurged on (although I had a gift certificate so it didn't quite hurt so much) but it's so worth it. If you have to have just one blush get this one, because it'll go with whatever eyeshadow or lipstick you've got on.
