OH. MY. GOD. This is THE worst POS mascara I have EVER, EVER used! First of all., when you pull the brush out of the tube, the mascara comes oozing out of the tube like slimy black tar. This stuff is impossible to apply without it clumping like a MOFO. I bought this for a couple of bucks at Big Lots with the intention of keeping it in my work makeup bag. One morning I was too rushed to do my makeup at home so I waited until I got to work to do it. That was the first time I had the horror of using this mascara. I used it once and promptly ditched it in the trash. Good thing I was only out a few bucks. This was the first Revlon mascara I have ever purchased and it will be my last. Revlon makes great lipstick but horrible mascara.
A huge tube of Meh! Does not make lashes look thick, it just makes them dark. It takes FOREVER to build it up to make lashes look like anything and I have long lashes. Skip this one. Maybelline makes some good mascaras but this is not one of them.
I love this brush so much that I bought two backups. It is a super soft quality brush, like all Eco Tools brushes are. I use this brush to buff mineral foundation or to buff in blush or bronzer. No longer will I buy MAC brushes when Eco Tools are just as good or superior for a fraction of the price.
Nothing great. This foundation is pricey but it did not last past lunch time with me. It goes on really pretty but I guess I am too oily for this foundation. I took it back to Sephora.
This is one of the best foundations I have ever used. I have used both the oily and the dry formulations and I really can't tell the difference between the two. This stuff covers my red roseaca spots so welll I don't need concealer. I just need to powder down a little bit at lunchtime and I'm set for the rest of the day, which says alot since my oily skin seems to eat foundation. I apply this with a $3.00 Elf powder brush and I get a flawless finish. My only complanint is that it can appear very matte so I sometimes add Benefit High Beam to it before I apply it to my face. It dries very quickly so you have to work fast and do one side of your face at a time. Thew is a fab drugstore foundation! Hope they never stop making this.
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Colorburst Lipgloss 002 Crystal Lilac

GORGEOUS! This is a beautiful pale lipgloss. I am super pale and most light glosses do not show up on me or make me look even more washed out. This gloss adds just the right amount of color, shimmer and shine. It just clicks with my coloring. I plan to stock up on these and I hope they never stop making it.
If I could rate this blush a "zero" I would. If I could rate this a "hell no" for "buy again", I would. Maybelline products have been going downhill on a sled for some time now and this product is no exception. I can remember when Maybelline used to be a great low priced brand. No more. Wet n Wild has now replaced Maybelline as the great low priced brand. This blush is pretty in the pan but useless. It has NO color payoff. I cannot believe Maybelline would even put this on the market. Wet n Wild can make great low priced blushes. Why can't Maybelline? Under no circumstances would I recommend this blush to anybody, not even a four year old playing with makeup. Save your money and get Cover Girl or Wet n Wild if you want a great, low priced blush.
Oh course I bought into the hype and bought this The colors are much too warm for my cool coloring. Warning to cool toned ladies: Stay way from this palette. The only colors I can wear are "Sin" and "Gunmetal", both of which I already own. Come on Urban Decay...put out a COOL palette for us fair skinned ladies!
Forget MAC, get these Lip Perfection lipsticks by Cover Girl! These are so creamy and they last for-evah! They don't dry out my lips and they come in a boatload of pretty colors. What's there not to love...oh..they are also pretty near dirt cheap when you use coupons or get them BOGO or at Walmart. Go get yourself one or two.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! Cover Girl hit it out of the park with these lipsticks. They are bright, color intense and the packaging looks high end. I can apply this and it does not wear off in 5 minutes like most lipsticks do on me. Even when they wear off they leave a hit on color on your lips. I can't believe the low ratings! I have several of these that I bought on sale and with coupons, so I got them dirt cheap. I think some of the low ratings are people who are high end snobs. Put this formula in a MAC lippie tube and they would love it.
Tbis is NOT, I repeat NOT for oily skinned peeps! This product may work just fine for dry skinned people, but after an hour I looked like I had smeared Crisco on my face. This tinted moisturizer also provided next to zero coverage (on me anyway). IMO, this product is for dry skinned people who need VERY little coverage. This did not work for me, but may work just fine for others.
This review is for the Beige Blaze color. I never would have tried this product if Noveau Cheap had not raved about it on her blog. Due to her loving it, I went out and bought it. I use this over Urban Decay primer potion and under powder eyeshadow It makes any powder shadow I use just POP! I would have passed this product by if not for Noveau Cheap since I am oily and these types of products crease like crazy on me. I had NO creasing when I used the UDPP underneath this. This is an awesome product on par with MAC paint pots for a fraction of the price and in a much better container. I can't stand MAC paint pots because you have to dig your finger in the pot to get to the product. I plan to try all the colors and if you buy these with coupons you are getting a STEAL.
Blush -L'Oreal - True Match Superblendable Blush in Baby Blossom

I don't use this as a blush but rather as an all over beauty powder. It is a dupe of Benefit Dandelion which I also own. I keep Danedlion at home and Baby Blossom in my office makeup kit. This powder gives a beautiful all over healthy glow. Love, love love this for us fair skinned girls.
I don't understand all the love for this awful mascara. First of all the brush is the size of the moon. I HATE THIS BRUSH WITH A PASSION!!! It's like trying to apply marcara to your eye with a beach ball. It's almost impossibe to coat every lash because the brush is so effing big. I had to spend an exta 10 minutes in the morning twisting and turning the brush to get this gunk on. I also don't see much volumizing going on here. I bought this a year ago, tried it once and tossed it. I bought it again on sale and with coupons due to all the love it gets on You Tube. Used it again and it still sucks. Why or why the giant azz brush Cover Girl??? There are so many better drugstore mascara's out there like Maybelline Lash Stilleto.
Cherries in the Snow is a perfect blue based red. I have bought countless bottles of this over the years and I will continue to buy it as long as they make it. I think this polish has been around since the 50's. I only use this for a pedicure, never for a manicure. My toes always looks so pretty with this on. Application is smooth, the price is right and it is easy to find in Wal Mart or any drugstore.
