I wanted to like this . . . the feel of my lashes after applying is soft and silky, but it flakes like crazy after drying. It is also a bit drier than my usual preference - I love the wetter brands - which makes it harder to apply. Overall, the look is no different or better than the average mascara. It was dirt cheap, so I can't complain, but will not buy again. Still, nothing can top my beloved Clinique.
Lipstick -Maybelline - Color Sensational Let Me Pink

Nice color, but a bit too bright for my tastes. Was looking for something a bit more rosey, and this is more fushcia. Nevetheless, the staying power if great, even with lip balm.
Lip Treatments -eos - Lip Balm Sphere - Lemon Drop SPF 15

I love this. Leaves lips smooth, moist and shiny. And the lemon flavor is a nice bonus. Plus the SPF15. Definitely buying this again, cause I will be running out soon.
Lip Gloss -Christian Dior - Rouge Dior Creme de Gloss Rouge Nectar

This is my fave red gloss. Light and creamy, it's more like a lipstick, as some of you have already pointed out, than a traditional gloss. Not sticky or gooey feeling at all, feels like powder on the lips. I also like the taste too. The color is a traditional red with more orange overtones than blue or pink. This looks perfect with my pink overtones. How long does it last? Much longer than I expected and it hardly fades at all, even after my first cup of coffee. Expensive but worth every dime.
Like so many of you, I love, love, love this product! I've owned about 5 so far. It's just the best for a subtle hint of shine and color. Plus, the color is neutral so it goes with anything. A super great, inexpensive product from Cover Girl.
Most of you seem to have a love hate relationship with this mascara. I love it personally. The formula is very wet, which is great because it allows for easier application. As far as the claims of false looking lashes . . . not exactly, but my lashes definitely came out a lot longer and thicker. Takes a few coats, but the effect is defintely there. Will definitely buy again.
Foundations -Revlon - ColorStay Mineral Mousse Makeup

A great foundation and almost a perfect match for my beloved Armani Face Fabric, only much cheaper. The results, however are almost identical to the more high end Armani brand. Goes on silky smooth and gives skin that beautiful air brushed look. I apply it with a sponge and it blends perfect each time. However, I have combo skin and this is a little drying in the colder months, so I deducted 1 lippie.
I love pink lips. IMO, they are way sexier than the traditional red lip the world raves about. So this is the perfect pink for me. Subtle, no frost or sparkles and best of all, no pearl overtones. Just a great matt shade that goes perfect with virtually any color. Also can be amped up with a gloss - my personal fave is MAC's Ample Pink. I love this and will definitely buy again.
I love the Orgasm powder blush and thought this would be a nice addition. It does show up great on my skin, but does not last at all. Plus, the formula is too thick for my taste. Not the worst of the multiples, but definitely not the best. Stick with the powder if you like the Orgasm line.
Primer/ Corrector -Sephora - Smoothing & Mattifying

Most primers make me break out, but this one does not. Plus, I'm a bit dry on my forehead, especially during the colder months, and this, along with my usual moisturizer, eliminates that problem leaving my skin smooth and silky. Also great at hiding the pores on my face. I love this and will definitely buy it again.
Lip Treatments -Caswell-Massey - Natural Therapy Lip Balm

Awesome stuff! Makes my lips gloss-like-shiny and soft as silk. Can't recommend it enough.
Sorry, but I love this stuff! Super easy to apply and produces the best tightline I've ever done. It does smudge a bit, so I don't use it on my bottom lash line anymore, but overall, a great product for the money. Works great with MAC's Contrast shadow.
Cannot say enough good things about this stuff! I did the entire "Kardashian" look along with the MAC eye paint, and it came out gorgeous. Great liner as well because it's not too harsh, but adds just the right amount of smoulder and makes my eyes pop like crazy. Can be put on sheer as well. A must have for those who want a more delicate smokey eye look.
Awful stuff. The stain is no better than Cover Girl or Maybelline only much more expensive. Also, the balm at the end broke off the second time I applied it. A complete waste that was! Chap Stick does the same thing for much less money.
I purchased the color In the Buff. I was expecting a nude shade, it is actually a lot darker than I thought. Overall, it leaves a bit of a rosy glow to your lips, but the color was nothing special. I was hoping for someting a bit lighter and more natural. Staying power is good and it's much better than Cover Girl's lipstains.
