    Stila coconut crush lip & cheek stain

    Great for cheeks, not so much lips

    I was surprised that I actually liked the color... it looks a bit dark at first, but when you blend it in, its really really pretty! Nice and bronzy with a golden glow! It works great on my cheeks when I just want a little bit of color. I usually go over it with a powder blush though to intensify it. But it blends easily and lasts about 8-10 hours. On the lips, you MUST use lipbalm before this and definetly use a gloss to top it off otherwise it will make your lips look shriveled and dry. It does give a nice natural stain to the lips. Really pretty! Might purchase other colors in the future =)

  • Ahava Mineral Hand Cream

    It definetly does its job by moisturizing well and soaking into the skin really quickly. However, I found that it left my hands with a slightly greasy feeling... It wasnt too bad, but for me, I didnt like the feeling. The smell is actually really pleasant. It has a powdery smell, which is really light, not too overbearing.

  • Tarte lifted natural eye primer with Firmitol

    I got a sample of this product and sadly... I didnt like it one bit =( It was really thick and dry, and it left flaky white stuff on my eyelid. It didnt seem to make a huge difference in helping my eyeshadow... I think maybe for more mature skin this would be a hit, but for me, it was a miss. I still would rather use UD Primer Potion or Too Faced Shadow Insurance.

  • Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush

    Ever since I bought this blush, I have been obsessed! I have been wearing the color Dollface (baby pink) practically every single day for work the past few months! Its a matte blush that glides on really smoothly and gives just the right amount of color. Its easy to build color also to get a more intense look. It doesnt quite last me 12 hours, but it stays on for a good 6-8 hours before it starts to fade. Excellent product! Everyone needs one of these =)

  • June Jacobs Body Polish

    June Jacobs Body Polish

    Exfoliates, but leaves residue

    This product exfoliates really really really good. However, when you try to wash it off, it leaves a residue on your skin that feels a bit sticky.. I personally dont like that sticky feeling. It does smell yummy though, almost like a lemon drop. I think if you have really dry skin this would be a great product, but since I live in humid weather, the stickiness didnt sit well with me. The tub is pretty big, so if you use it once or twice a week, it should last a few months.

  • Chanel Aqualumiere Gloss

    Chanel Aqualumiere Gloss

    I think these are discontinued now..

    Even though these are probably discontinued.. Im glad I got my hands on one of them. They are medium to full coverage glosses and go on very smoothly. With these, you wouldnt need to wear lipstick underneath. However, the only downside is that these are a bit stickier than the glossimers.

  • Chanel Pinceau Paupieres Estompe #3 Eyeshadow Crease Brush

    This is a great crease brush if you want a more dramatic look. Its very dense so it will pack on the color. But, it is soft and not harsh on the eye like some crease brushes. Its also made with natural hair!

  • Chanel Le Petit Pinceau #8 Touch-Up Brush

    This brush is really really soft! Its great for applying powder to either take away shine or to add shine. Since the brush isnt very stiff, I wouldnt recommend this brush for contouring or blending, it would probably just moosh the product all over the place. With Chanel brushes, you cant really go wrong.. accept for the price point =)

    Chanel Le Crayon Khol Intense Eye Pencil

    Great Pigment, Doesnt Last Long

    Although I love Kohl Pencils.. they never stay on very long. They do have great pigmentation and are very creamy. They arent harsh along the waterline or lashline, but if you wear contacts or have oily skin, these might not last past 2 hours =( High price, but not quite worth it.

  • Chanel Base Ombre a Paupieres Professional Eye Shadow Base

    The formula is very thick and a bit dry. I believe they only have 3 colors, and they are all very light. Didnt quite get the job done as well as other primers like the Too Faced Shadow insurance or UD Primer Potion. It has a matte finish, but it didnt hold color very well and it was a bit too thick.
