I rarely buy things I don’t love, but out of my recent purchases, my favorite has to buy MAC’s Style Minx lipglass from the Heatherette collection. I managed to get my hands on one and I love it so much I’ve been looking for a second one ever since – I was actually asking about it just today at my nearest CCO! 🙂

Marquis’d, and MUFE’s fushia pigment. I’m surprised at all the uses i’ve found for hot pink eyeshadow, heh. And Diorshow mascara, and Dior forever foundation(and i’m HARD to fit for a foundation too!)

Mac’s studio sculpt foundation and concealer. I love them both more than Mac’s other foundations and concealers, I wear them every day and my skin looks like porcelein.

MSF Blonde. But that’s also because it was like a rib out of my body. (I’m a student with no money) So I HAD to love it. And I do. It’s my first MSF and I love some shine on my face!

Second!! Also, Peppermint Patti! I’ve gotten a million compliments since I’ve put it on. I’ve also convinced a couple of my skeptical girlfriends to purchase! : )

benefit coralista! i don’t normally put on blush to school but this gives me a healthy flush of colour without looking like i put on blush. been using this everyday now! 🙂

Stila Pretty Face set that I got from Beautycrunch, since I’m not in US, it took 2 weeks for me to get it. No regret at all 🙂

smashbox o-glow. I know it gets a lot of grief from other people but I love this blush. It really works for me.

I got that one a long time ago but haven’t used it. If you don’t mind, could you tell me what is the best way to apply it? what brush did you use? thanks

Mac lipgloss in Viva Glam iv, the perfect shimmery nude shade that goes with all looks! A close second is Benefit Dandellion powder!

i have tons of purchases that i love to death both drugstore and high end and of course lots of mac but ironically the most recently LOVED product has been a drugstore buy. L’oreals Double Extend beauty tubes tech make my eyes look wider open and goes on easy enough for someone who gets up at 430 am to go to work. I work on an ambulance so i sweat alot and nap whenever i can in between calls and this mascara doesnt smudge and its so easy to remove. just soak your lashed with a tissue in warm water and wipe it off, no transfer to your lower lids and it comes off so easily. but when i wake up that early and work such long shifts i need that extra boost of mascara so i dont look dead and asleep while working. of course on my off days i wear dior blackout waterproof for amazing length volume and stayability. ive cried and then gone swimming with this on (all at my sisters wedding) and it didnt budge until i used a makeup remover to take it off. between the two i dont need any other mascara ever! who would have thought i found two HG mascaras.

I bought CORALISTA blush by Benefit and i LOVE it!!! the color is soo pretty…i have similar kind of color, but this has exact lovely amount of sheen, smoothness…as if it was designed by me for me…:)

Eve Pearl HD dual Foundation!!! I discovered thru Christines recommendation(thanks Christine!!!), and it is honestly the best foundation I have ever used! And I thought it was aggravate my already sensitive, acne, oily skin, but it is actually IMPROVING it!! I love the two color technique, and am so excited that my makeup is making my skin look and feel great!

Wet n Wild’s new Speed Glosses!! I love these, they are non sticky, last a long time, pigmented, and taste like mint! They remind me of the CO Bigelow ones from B&BW!

MAC Cremesheen glass in Petite Indulgence. It looks so bright in the tube, but it is really sheer and more natural looking than you would expect. It helps brighten up my whole face!

i love this too and even got another 2 as backups from the mac website the other day when i saw they had stock


MAC mineralize blush in love thing.

before that my fave go-to blush was NARS dolce vita. ive used dolce vita like…once since i’ve gotten love thing. that blush is absolutely GORGEOUS.

Dior Nude Foundation
It’s very lightweight with amazing coverage.

Pink Fish TLC
Leaves my lips nice and moisturized with the perfect tinge of pink 🙂

She Loves Candy l/g from the MAC HK Collection. I had 2 lists when I went to get HK, Must-Haves and a secondary list. This lg wasn’t on either but when I got there I just loved it!

Possum Nose Pink from the MAC Dame Edna Collection. Its a great red for me, its not too bold. Its gorgeous.

I have enjoyed a lot of things since buying dazzleglass BUT nothing that I have LOVED as much as the dazzleglasses 🙂

The Lollipop Lovin’ lipstick from the Sugar sweet collection! I think it’s similar to Nymphette which is my favorite lipglass.

Amazingly enough, it’s those Victoria’s Secret lipglosses in the squeeze tube. They taste and smell absolutely delicious [well, most of them] and I find they last on me for a long time. Very easy to carry around as well.

Lancome Ageless Minerale mineral powder set. I’m not sure if I still buy in to the whole mineral powder thing anymore seeing as they all seem to have the same “bad” minerals in them (mica, bismuth oxychloride etc) but the fact still remains that nothing looks as natural on my face as a mineral powder foundation.

I’ve switched from BM to Lancome and love how non shiny my face is, and the brush is SO soft

I absolutely love HK lipglass in Sweet Strawberry. It is such a great color for me, plus the packaging is so cute! It was my only HK purchase, and I’m so glad I did.

It’s MAC’s Slimshine in “scant”. Normally i don’t like wearing lip stuff that much because it always needs to be checked, reapplied, and weirdly always makes my lips look smaller. It’s a hassle. But this! It’s like a lip balm, which gives just a hint of color, which is the perfect shade…maybe one shade darker than my natural lips, but the exact same tone.. and it’s perfect!

The best product isn’t necessarily the gimmick, but it’s about what’s the right tone for your skin and overall appearance, and what’s comfortable to wear.

I absolutely love Mac Lollipop Lovin lipstick, too. It’s the first time that I actually bought a backup!

It’s actually a d/s item: Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Double Face Perfector. I love it! I don’t use foundation or even a TM. I apply the concealer side under my eyes and the highlighter around my lips, on my chin, bridge of nose and forehead. It lasts throughout the day w/o creasing and is very easy to blend. Totally HG status!

I just stopped at Sephora yesterday for a quick exchange, & took a few minutes to look around. I was on the phone w/ my mom and kind of blindly browsing when I happened upon it: B.E. Buxom Lip Polish in Jessica. It’s a beautiful peachy-nude with pink iridescence. I almost squealed out loud! Haha.

Lancome’s color design eyeshadow in Fligree….love it, really brings out the color of my eyes, and stila convertible color in peony….love it

I love the Chanel Tweed blushes! Also I’m with Christine – that Dior blush is wonderful! And of course anything that I’ve gotten from Guerlain has knocked my socks off 🙂 Their Kiss Kiss glosses are A-MAZE-ING!!

NARs blush in Desire and Sin. Nars has the best blushes. Also just got Bad Education lipgloss from NARs – such a beautiful strawberry red!

I dropped mine and can’t seem to find it to purchase another one. It’s not on the website and I don’t have a MAC store or a CCO near me. So sad. 🙁

i bought a couple of LE mac items off ebay–4n lipstick, remotely grey and neutral pink eyeshadows….i love them! i loved the n collection, and i’m so glad i was able to find these!

Lemon chiffon shadestick, I’ve been wanting a shadestick like this forever. It’s the perfect base for something like vanilla pigment.

Physician’s Formula Summer Eclipse Bronzer in Moonlight, because it wasn’t too muddy for my fair skin and it gave my face a long-awaited glow.

I’m really lovin Lancome’s Color Fever lipstick in Pink Attitude. It’s such a gorgous pink and gives a lovely amount of shimmer as well.

I’m also really diggin Chanel glossimers in Pin-Up, Constellation, and Gold Shine.

As for MAC, last weekend I used Sweet William Blushcreme on my cheeks with Astral Rays Glimmershimmer to highlight. Sweet William is absolutely stunning on my cheeks lol!

urban decay eye 24/7 eyeliner. I wasn’t expecting much when I bought it a couple weeks ago but I’m in love.

The last product i bought and loved must be MAC Hello Kitty tinted lip conditioner in Popster and Mac mineralize blush in Love rock.

MAC so ceylon MSF…I wear it nearly everyday since I got it a few months ago ..overall it’s my most beloved beauty item.

MAC Dipdown Fluidline. It doesn’t come off of my oily eyelids even without primer. Also love the StudioSculpt foundation because a little bit gives good coverage even without concealer.

Tarte mascara! I know people have bagged on this mascara but it looks great on my lashes and the first time I wore it, my hubby said “wow, I never noticed what long lashes you have!”.

Well the last product i bougth was last night – and it was one of the mac new shadesticks – Butternutty… Oh man… i love that lil thing.., goes on so smooth, looks really natural with a slight shimmer, perfect for a day makeup!!!

Dior Addict Lipcolor, the new collection with 24 shades. I got Rose Lingerie. Not too pink, not too brown. Love the color and the texture.

I am completely in love with my CoverGirl TruBlend foundation. I have always been a Clinique girl but I love the CG even more! It’s fab for my oily skin.

I also love my MAC longwear. It’s fab too.

Last week I bought two OPI nailpolishes – Tickle My France-y and Don’t Toy with Me – and they are amazing, both in colour and in lasting power!

laura mercier’s primer and foundation. 🙂
lollipop lovin is great too. i bought it with heatherette but i’m considering buying a backup form sugarsweet! 🙂

The last product I bought that I love is YSL Touche Eclat. It really brightens my whole eye are and makes me look more awake.

Melt in Your Mouth Cremesheen Glass and Peppermint Patti Nail Lacquer. Adore MIYM’s peachy pink prettiness and how it feels on my lips and PP is the perfect color for spring nails.

I absolutely bought Givenchy Phenomon’ Eyes Mascara and LOVED IT! I was a bit skeptical because of the mixed reviews (many said is smudged really easy and clumped) but it works wonders for my eyelashes!!!
Twitter: makeupgirl513

i’ve fallen in love with the grand duo hot planet – the lilac-ish side mixed with the warmer bronzey bits – it’s just so underrated!

i also decided to venture into foundation, i picked up a lancome hydra compact foundation and have fallen in love with the cooling sensation, the subtle, natural coverage over my uneven toned forehead, the candlelit glow it emits and that absolutely gorgeous fragrance!
i’m just not so crazy about the bland packaging.
sorry, i’m aware i got carried away there!

Cover Girl Lash Blast, decided to give it a try after seeing it in a two pack for $10 ($5 each! great deal). Loved it as it doesn’t clump but sad that it doesn’t provide the volume that diorshow does.

I absolutely love my studio sculpt foundation esp with my 109 it was like they were made for each other… oh and my Sonia Kashuk hilighting brush from her coral collection from target it’s so pretty!

Here are the products I love!
Versatility: The Body Shop Sparkle & Shimmer Powder Puff in Sunset Peach. This is a GORGEOUS spring and summer color – peachy pink with gold and light lime shimmer! You can use it as an eyeshadow, mix it with lipgloss or sprinkle on the lips for glam shimmer, or use it as a blush for sparkling cheeks.
Staying power: Bath and Body Works Liplicious Sheer Lipgloss in Strawberry Daiquiri. This is a very sheer, VERY glossy pink. The texture is thick and sticky, but just enough to stay on for two to three hours – not enough to capture strands of hair.
Overall LOVE!: MAC Powerpoint Eyeliner in Engraved. This liner is VERY smooth, VERY black, well-blending, and long-lasting product. Love it! 🙂
– hi 😀

too many to say!!
MAC lipstick LAvender whip … i love purples
Guerlain- Rose Inpudique lipstick ( i bought 2… i know it will get dscd, thats what happens when i like something!)
and any of the Urban Decay eyeliner pencils- they just glide on your eyes so easy… love them all

for me it’s MAC Dame blush. I ordered it online and when I got it was SO mad, I swatched it on my finger and hated the color… I tried it with Perfect Topping MSF on my cheeks and I can’t stop wearing them together!! I’ll never look back! Lol

My latest love is Chanel lipstick in “fiesta” from the spring collection, it’s a perfect deep pink coral.

Grand Duos blush from MAC, I love these soo much I am debating to get backups! Also Lollipop Lovin’ lipstick is what I just got a back up of as well!

Hello Kitty Lipstick in Most Popular and Big Bow =p I never had those colours and their so bright and awesome!

Just one? Well I only got items from MAC Sugarsweet that I really really liked. Out of all of it, I loved Lollipop Loving and Sweet Thing lipstick. They’re gorgeous on and oh so girly in color.

Estee Lauder Pure Color Lipgloss in Fuchsia…..It’s not a MAC purchase, but I love it just the same!

MAC Studio Sculpt Concealer.
Let me tell you that stuff is AMAZING! Covers up basically everything. I have oily skin so I don’t bot wearing concealer normally because I’m afraid it will crease or melt off bt this stuff doesn’t budge. Covers up anything beautifully! Also great for dark under eyes 🙂

Hmm…it’s a toss up, but it’d have to be one of the M Lab skincare products I’ve gotten recently. The anti-aging treatment serum is great and so is the toner. I also really like the eye cream and the day treatment. Virtually everything I’ve tried of theirs has been a winner.

And in terms of cosmetics, it’d have to be Aromaleigh’s Rosebud lipstick. It’s the PERFECT shade for me (just a little darker than my lips are naturally), feels wonderful and looks good even when it’s wearing off. I’ve had a ton of luck with AL’s lipsticks in general, though. I prefer them to MAC anyday, although MAC has some gorgeous colors that AL can’t compete with. 🙁

I usually love most of everything I own/buy but, lately, I just fell in love with the gorgeous MAC Sugarsweet shadestick in Red Velvet. It goes so well with Dear Cupcake e/s and Aquavert! The texture is much creamier on the newer shadesticks than on the older ones! Just also love YSL new L.E. palettes (eyes & face). I also just love Bubbles l/s! I think I’m gonna have to get a backup! Goes really well with Snowscene l/g from Chill collection.

Oh! Forgot the UD gel e/s! Christine you should try them and swatch them and make looks with them! I bought 2 at first and had to go back and bought 4 more colors!

Urban Decay Flash eyeshadow. It’s a vibrant, pigmented shade of royal purple. Very unique and striking.

MAC Studio Sculpt foundation! I know some people have problems with MAC foundations breaking them out, but I loveeee this foundation! it feels just great on my skin.

I have been buying so much makeup lately but one of the most recent things I got which suprised me as to how good it was (atleast for me) was the nyx megashine lipgloss in smokey look.

I got the Mac 272 eyeshadow brush a while ago and I really, really love it. It’s like the 239 but with an angled edge and a little softer. I normally use it along with other brushes when I do my make-up but it’s an amazing brush which you can use for anything at all. It packs the colour on the lid really well, defines the crease really nicely as it’s got the angled edge, highlights and blends. It’s a great all-rounder which I think would be great for taking on holiday (rather than taking lots of different brushes the way I normally do).

Big Bow l/s from the Hello Kitty collection. It looked sooo bright but when I put it on its darker and not so pink. I love it.

A MAC mascara. When I got this, I was in a hurry and just told the MA I needed a new mascara but I wasn’t sure which one. So he picked one out and I never actually looked at which one it was. The box is long gone and its not on the mascara what one it is. I think its the Plush Lash, I’m not sure if thats what its called. Anyway, I love it, it makes my lashes thicker but isn’t all clumpy or weigh them down.

Its not the last thing I bought that I loved but out of my past months purchases I love this the most. Its a hemp lip protector from the Body Shop. It makes my lips so soft, I haven’t had one that has worked as well as this one. And it was only like $10 so its much cheaper than MAC products which I usually get.

Cover girl blush in Natural Shimmer…..I’ve tried the Nars Orgasm blush and it wasn’t that great, this one is so much more nicer and natural. Also MAC naked pigment, it so gorgeous and versatile….I use it for highlighting, mixing with my foundation, etc..I Love it 🙂

I LOVE my MAC Russian Red…it’s the best pick me up for a bad day.

I also LOVE my Bobbi Brown Skin Finish Foundation. I have oily skin, but this makes me look flawless when I put some powder on top.

Love my Dior Bronze Harmonie de Blush in Rose Brazilia. Absolutely LOVE it. At first I was just buying it for the packaging but really…it looks wonderful on my fair skin.

I just bought the Estee lauder Sea and Sand palette after I saw your review and I am in loooove! This is my perfect go-to summer palette. I adore the mix of neutral-gold and bright teal shades, so fun and wearable. I also love the new Estee Laduer pure color gloss stick lipstick in Pop Pink for a fun pop of fuschia pink. I’m not a huge EL fan but these two knocked my socks off.

I am still loving the combo of MAC Fashion mews lipstick and Nice Kitty lipglass.

I worship the new Lancome Oscillation mascara–it makes my lashes the longest they’ve ever been with two freaking strokes. Wish it wasn’t so expensive though!

I also adore Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue because it puts me in a summery mood!

MAC cremesheen lipstick in Lickable! It’s such a bright, fun pink. I wear it on an almost every day basis

I purchased on Saturday 2 Chanel products. Le Blanc De Chanel Sheer Illuminating Base & Aqualumiere Gloss in Glass Quartz. The illuminating base feels very light and does what it’s supposed to do. The gloss stays put and I love the color. I want to purchase another gloss but I should not! 🙂

MACs pink fish from the hello kitty collection.
I didn’t think the color would look good on me but it looks so pretty on my lips and it feels even better. (like butta – kidding)

Dame Edna Wisteria Eye Trio is amazing! I love the colors “Wisteria” velvet light sky blue and the dark charcoal “Divine Night” together.

mac lipstick in hue!
Its an amazing color, and it’s a color that wont go to waste, because I will wear it every day!
