This is my second attempt with liquid liner, and should have been what I used the first time! The pen style makes it sooo easy! I got the Onyx one, and noticed that it does look sort of blue, but I saw this only when I was taking it off. It stung my eyes a little when I was removing it. Overall, a good product for those who want liquid liner in an easy to apply container.
I love the clean feeling I get from this, but it's so annoying to get that good clean! It doesn't rinse off easily, so I only use it when I remove my makeup before I shower. You can tell if it's not all off by the slimy feel.
I have cherry-vanilla. I think it tastes like a cherry creamsicle! The only remotely bad thing-if I overapply, it forms these little wads on my lips. But that's my fault. Great product!
Mascara -Maybelline - Great Lash mascara in brown/black

I'm really torn about this. It defines my lashes when I want a natural look, and lasts all day. But, every now and then, for some completely random reason, it irritates my eyes. This is the only mascara that has ever done this (and I've tried more than 10 in the last couple years). I just don't use it anymore b/c I never know when it will irritate me. Update: I tried this again in the curved brush. Application is much better, and the look is buildable. I can get really defined lashes with this one. I've had no irritation like the last time I used it, so I don't know what was happening then. I really like this mascara (especially the blackest black shade). I would undoubtedly buy it again!
Eye Shadow -Revlon - Wet/Dry Shadow [DISCONTINUED]

It lasts all day-and then some! This stuff stays on for more than 10 hours on me. I just wish Revlon would make more colors! I have it in Sandstone.
This was my first blush. It's a really nice color for my fair skin, and lasts all day. The only thing I don't like is the packaging. If I'm not careful, I close the blush and some of the brush is sticking out of the container. Great product!
Lip Gloss -Prestige - Jetstream in Strawberry Daquiri

After reading the reviews I thought I'd try it. Well, the color is decent, but it's a little too sticky for me. And it doesn't smell good at all! Smells like plastic. And the packaging isn't the best. I had to turn the base SO MANY times before I got any color, then I got this big blob. I'll use it occasionally but won't love it. EDIT:I changed it from a 2 to a 3 since I tried it again. It is still sticky, but it doesn't really smell once applied. It's a decent color, and it won't spill or leak, which is good. decent but a bit more expensive than it's worth.
