Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Covet

i was in the mood for a crazy eye pencil so i picked this one up. its a rich blue-ish green with lots of sparkles. i usually hate glitter but it looked alright. it was very smooth and lasted all day. i would probably buy this again, and am planning on trying some more colors.
im going to india this summer and i wanted a relatively sheer powder to top off my tinted moisturizer so i didnt look oily. i told the woman at sephora that i use the stila sheer color tm and prescriptives concealer and she recommended this for me. i didnt want something that made me look cakey, and this came out completely natural. i was surprised that i fell under the "dark" category because i am a medium bronze color, and it really doesnt have a very good color variety. i would still repurchase this pressed powder.

i have dark-tannish skin with yellow undertones, and its really hard to find a concealer that matches. i got this in level 3.5 warm, and was pleasantly surprised that it matched. it looks natural, and doesnt get cakey. it was a little expensive at $22, but i think it was worth it. i will definately buy this again.
oh. my. god. this lipgloss/glaze is beyond horrible. there werent many colors to chose from, but i took the berry thing. i liked the applicator, but that was about it. when i put it on, the senation was terrible. it was tingly, but in a bad way. it was stinging. and the worst thing was that it didnt even plump. i took it off immediately, but the feeling stayed for like 15 min afterward. i do not suggest this to anyone.

i was looking for soemthing to make my lips healthier and to get rid of the fine lines on my lips, so i tried this stuff. it says that it has immediate effects. pshh no.it just looks like i have a cheap lipgloss on. when i rub my lips together, it has a really gritty feel. also, i dont like the cheap packaging. i'll update if there are any long term effects, but right now, it feels like a waste of money.

i really like this stuff. i have relatively wavy/curly hair and this created a lot of beacy-type waves. after i came out of the shower, i sprayed some of this all over my hair and used a diffuser. i like how it smells. i probably will buy this again.
i got a free sample of this and was wary of trying it because my friend said its extremely clumpy. i was feeling adventurous so i tried it. suprisingly, i liked it. it was somewhat thickening, and not that clumpy. i would have bought the full sized tube if it had a darker color. i dont plan on buying this again.
i am a dancer, and i needed to get some liquid eyeliner to define my eyes for an upcoming performance. i am a complete uncoordinated clutz when it comes to liquid eyeliner, so i went in for this pen-like thing. it has an okay application, but when you try to layer it when its wet/damp, it takes the original line off. when you try to layer it when its dry, it takes chunks of the original line off. also, it stayed on my eyes for about 15 minutes. i dont have oily eyelids, but this had NO staying power, whatsoever. i will definately not be bying this again.
i like this straightener. i like the versatility that i can use it on dry, damp, or wet hair. i found that it works best with damp or dry hair though. i have wavy hair, and this straightener works really well on my hair. it was reasonably priced for its good quality. i don't think i will buy this again, because there are better straighteners out there.
Eyeliner -Revlon - Colorstay Eyeliner in BlackBrown

after reading the rave reviews of this eyeliner, i decided to try it out. yes, it has good staying power. much better than my MAC eyepencil in coffee. i tightline on the top lid, and i find myself doing it over and over again, because i am not able to get a good line. it just doesnt go on as well as my other eyeliners. i like the color, though. its an extremely dark brown, without the harsh-ness of black. i would probably buy it again because it doesnt sink or smudge, and its cheaply priced.
Conditioner -Frederic Fekkai - Glossing Conditioner

i really like conditioner. i got it as a gift, and compared to my nexxus one, this one is fantastic. it made my hair silky and shiny, even after i straightened it. it looked NATURAL. that is a huge thing for me, because i hate when my hair looks contrived. i used this with the hydra sleek shampoo from nexxus and john freida frizz ease straight answer spray. i will definately buy this for myself; it does WONDERS.
this was my first MAC eyeliner, and i like it. its a dark brown, which is exactly what i was looking for. it doesnt sumdge as much as my other eyeliners, and it goes on well. its a pretty good size, so i dont think i will be running out anytime soon, but if i do, i will definately buy it again.
i am not one for bronzer, because i am tan already, but i was like huh, i wonder how i'd look with some, so i tried this on. i wanted a combo of blush and bronzer, but EACH ONE I TRIED RAN SO RED ON ME! i tried benefit hula and dallas, and they looked HORRIBLE. i had these big red blotches on my face. ugh. so my search continued. i like this because it gives me a cute sun-kissed glow, and some color on my cheeks, that doesn't look RED. if you are slightly dark, i would totally recommend this product.
Mascara -Christian Dior - Diorshow Black Out Mascara

oh. my. GOD. this stuff is nasty. completely disgusting. i have naturally long eyelashes, but this made them stick together, and look HORRIBLE. it smelled bad, and just chunky. bleh. i will NEVER EVER buy it again. EVER.
this mascara is not bad. it lengthens to an extent where its crazy, but not fake. which is a pretty difficult feat. its not as thickening as it could be, but i still like it. it doesnt smudge or clump, and come off with water, which is pretty cool. i probably wont repurchase because i will be experimenting with some other mascara...
