no prob. don't forget to lightly brush your forehead, bridge of nose, temples, and chin! that's where the sun hits your face naturally. don't "re-dip" your brush - use what's already on there.

i want lemon-aid and the lip plumper

i am an absolute sucker for lip plumpers.

i ahve their hard angle brush! so worth the $27 i spent on it, its my holy grail brush, i wish i could just use it for everything hahah

i now have 3 hard angled brushes, a cheap one i got in aset which i never use because it feel too light and flimsy, a free one i got with some cake eyeliner (which i threw out, it was otally shit and showed up like watercolour paint), the brush is pretty good for a free one, but realy doesn't ompare to my benefit one.

i want alll of the brushes Razz

please tell me that you realize the lip plumper also acts as a base for lip colours and glosses. I've seen too many bad reviews in blogs about it because most of those women were too dumb to realize/look it up on the website. you use a lot of bright lippies so I think it'll be rad for you. it doesn't really plump much, but its a nice alternative to MAC's lip erase, which I'd love to have.

if you want a REALLY good lip plumper, then you want to try lip fusion. really expensive, but it gives true results.

yellow and green help with sallowness and redness, so if you have those problems, lemon aid should help :]

Puffffy!
You're always looking for a good concealer!
xDDD
If you're looking for a cheaper alt. you might wanna try the nyx in the pot.
I love mine.
So easy to blend and all that jazz.
I got mine at a beauty supply store where they sell weave and stuff.
If you have any of them near you, you might wanna see if they have any!
Totally worth the 3 bucks I think.

psssh, not just concealer! you know half the time its all about foundation!

and I heard about that NYX concealer! it looks like a hell of a big pot! I totally forgot about it, it would be a good substitute.

and I can walk to my local hair store! they have those NYX pearl piggie things. mmhm. n.n

BADgal Lash: First off, let me just say that the brush is HUGE! I can still reach all my lashes but it just really surprised me when I pulled out the wand and I was like "....woah... <_<". The formula takes a while to dry so it can smudge if you're not careful but once it did, I had zero flaking problems. Even though it did take a bit to dry, I really liked the consistancy; not too thick, not too thin.

I'm really careful when applying mascara so I didn't get any clumps but it would be really easy to do so if you don't take your time. It gave me awesome thickness and pretty good length if i applied it to my tips but it completely drooped and weighed down my lashes. It's pretty good but I'd say the performance is really close to my Max Factor 2000 calorie so why would I spend so much when I can get the same results for a quarter of the price?

Dallas Blush: LOVE!!!! Beautiful plummy shade. It's really versitile for lots of skintones except for those that are really pale since it can look muddy on them. It's got some gold in it and can be used as a bronzer as well; not that I ever do that. Comes with a brush that I find pretty much useless but my MAC 129 does a great job. I love this.

Eye-con: A tiny bit goes SUCH a long way. I just tap the surface with my fingertip and I have enough to cover my entire eye area. It doesn't absorb so quickly that I feel like I didn't put anything ony, but it doesn't leave me shiny or feeling like i have a film on my eyes. The moisture was great but it hasn't done a thing for fading my circles like it said it would and I doubt it ever will since my dark circles are from heredity.

Gilded: Sooooo not for cool skin (pink undertones) or pale people. I have yellow-y, medium-light skin and I think it looks great on my brow bone. I feel like it melted off my face in the heat too quickly and I had to be careful about blending out the harsh pencil line or it would completely fade. It was great as a cheek-bone highlight but again, blending was a bitch. The gold isn't too strong or over-powering and it can look very glamorous once you take your time.

Benetint: I honestly don't get why people don't like the scent. It smells like roses and I LOVE it. It fades within five minutes and it's really faint to begin with. I love how build-able it is from pinky red all the way to deep scarlet. On my lips it lasted a long time and didn't dry them out, but you do need to make sure they're totally flake-free and moisturized before applying. I thought it gave me plenty of blending time on my cheeks and I could go as deep as I'd like with the color by blending only with my fingertips. The only thing I really didn't like was that it's really hard to try to blend out that harsh line on the cheeks. It made me feel like raggedy ann. Razz

Haha, nice review. I was thinking of getting Dallas when I went on my trip, but I'm still not sure of how it would look on me. I think I may just get Stila Convertibles instead.
