Milani Single Eyeshadows

I LOVE Milani single eyeshadows. I bought my first one several years ago on a clearance rack in Walgreens. Garden Mist. I was in LOVE, but I had NO IDEA what I had! After having been taught by many of the gurus on YouTube, great inexpensive MAC dupes, I had to go out & purchase more of these fabulous eyeshadows.

Intensely pigmented eye shadows that leave an incredible deposit of color on lids. Glides on silky-smooth, blends effortlessly and resists fading and creasing.

kawaii Overdose Minerals

Kawaii means "cute" in Japanese.

I learned about these minerals via YouTube.

I was excited to try because they appeared so pigmented on video.

I purchased them from thecuteysakura's website.

- Highly Pigmented
- Micronized Minerals
- 100% free of oil, talc and alcohol,and perfume.
- Can be used dry, or wet and also as liners!

- Not sure if I really got 5grams., (do minerals weigh MORE than regular e/s?)
- Shipping was EXORBITANT, considering I paid $10 & the USPS cost of mailing was less that $2.(Odd, since we reside in the same state) I would have preferred it be called a "Processing & Handling" fee. If you care to give it a try, go for it. Maybe you will have a different experience. CAVEAT EMPTOR

Bali Girl Freetress Wig

I love this wig!
She is synthetic, 1b
with adjustable straps
as well as a comb in the front & the back.

Finger comb her, or she will pouf up too much on you. You don't want her looking "old before her time".

I wish I could get her thinned out a little bit so she would look a little more natural.

L'Oreal HiP Loose Eyeshadow Pigment Collection

I did not see these on the LorealParisUSA website. However, I still see them in stores. I purchased some of these on ebay and some during BOGO (Buy 1 Get 1 Free) sales at local drugstores.
I am missing only 2 that I'd like to add.
The white that reflects pink
as well as
the burgundy one. I probably don't need the burgundy one because it's rumored to be a dupe for MAC reflects blackened red, which I already own.


INTREPID (rumored to be a dupe for MAC Brown/Blue Pigment)
Reads differently, depending on what color base you use.
