Well, quick review for this one. It didn’t divide.. I had to use an eyebrow brush to get my lashes apart as much as I could. It also didn’t multiply. I didn’t get any extra volume even with two coats. It’s nice and black though. Unfortunately that isn’t enough for me!
I received several products with my Estee Lauder Gift with Purchase. I wore three of them on April 5th.
This quad is so pretty and the colours went on beautifully. The eyeshadows were smooth and well pigmented. I was so happy with this when I first applied it. Unfortunately after about an hour, when I went to take my FOTD photo’s I noticed that the colours had all kind of blended into each other and almost faded away. You can see by the photo above that there really isn’t much intensity in the colour at all. Now, I have heard that GWP shadows can be of lower quality. If that is the case, it does not represent the line well and does not encourage me to buy the full size product.
Bold Sumptuous Volume Lifting Mascara
I was impressed with the colour of this mascara. It is very black, which I love. When I applied the mascara, it was very wet and my lashes all clung to each other as though they thought half of them were going to jump ship from my eyelids!!! I had to use an eyebrow brush to separate them. Clingy lashes is a huge pet peeve of mine. So even though the colour was great, I wasn’t too happy with this one.
Copper Glow Lipstick
This is a beautiful colour, and the texture is very silky and moisturizing. The wear wasn’t very long, but I don’t mind reapplying. It’s a really great every day shade for those that love to wear warm colours. The only thing I didn’t like was the taste, but if you can get past that, this is an awesome lipstick!!

From Paula’s Choice website:
Skin Recovery Super Antioxidant Concentrate
Normal to Very Dry Skin
I can’t vouch for the accuracy of whether it has sufficient antioxidants or stabilized retinol, but I can let you know what this has done for my skin.
I use it ever morning after cleansing, toning and exfoliating. I put a little bit all over my face, and then follow with my moisturizer. It is very silky to apply and doesn’t feel greasy. However, for my very dry skin, it feels lovely and moisturizing.
Ever since I have been using this, my skin looks more radiant and even-toned. It also seems like the fine lines I was developing very quickly have kind of stayed put and aren’t getting any worse. I have been using this product for well over a year now and have repurchased. I will continue to repurchase and keep this as a regular part of my routine (which is saying a lot for me!) until something better at such a good price comes along. Yay Paula for making such a wonderful product!!

The first is their blush in Peach Nuance, which is a gorgeous silky powder. It can be applied as one blend of the colours, or you can apply them separate as blush and highlight. The first time I saw this I knew it had to be mine!!
Second, I thought I would try out their Double Wear Eyeshadow Cream in Golden Apricot. It goes on very smooth and has a beautiful shimmer. I do prefer the texture of MAC's paintpots, but this is a unique shade and I am a sucker for anything peachy. This photo didn’t come out very true to colour as there hasn’t been much sunlight in days! It is more peachy and not as yellow as this photo looks.
