This is my 'go to eyeliner'... Usually my problem purchasing other liquid eyeliners are the brushes...The brush on this is nice and thin allowing you to create any look...I prefer just a very thin line to line my eyes and this liner is perfect. It's cheap and it's very pigmented. The only con would be that although I can wear mine and it won't come off, it comes off easily when wet. But I would highly recomment this product!
I received this in a glossy box expecting it to be like any regular drug store shampoo. When I read the label about its promises to add volume I laughed to myself and thought Pffffffff ya right, as I'm one not to usually buy into those advertisement promises...I was proved wrong. This shampoo totally added volume to my hair, it has a nice scent, and it lathers so beautifully! I would definitely repurchase this!
If you have a medium/olive skin tone, this will look so beautiful! This was my favourite blush to wear during this past summer, it gave me a nice healthy glow without looking harsh! It appears shimmery in the pan, but once applied looks more like a blush/highlighter...I can't wait for summer so I can crack this baby out again. The only con is that I wouldn't necessarily reach for this colour during the winter months (unless I'm on vacation somewhere hot!). I don't think it's a year-round/everyday colour you can reach for, but whenever you want that healthy, glowy look, this is what you need! I would definitely buy this again, especially since it's so affordable!
If you have warm or olive undertones, I'm pretty sure this colour will look great on you! I wouldn't use a heavy hand on this colour as too much will just look orangey, but blend it in lightly and you're face will have a nice subtle, healthy glow. I like to apply it to the apples of my cheeks and blend it out, but I believe if you have great bone structure or cheek bones, you can even use a light hand to contour the face and it and it would look great! My face is a bit more on the long side, so although the contour didn't work out too well on me since it made my face look slightly longer, the colour still popped. So now I just apply it on the apples of my cheeks and blend it out and it looks great!
At first when I purchased this palette last year, I was questioning all the hype around it. I looked at the colours and thought ok, they're pretty, but how many looks can I achieve with this...A year later, I can say I still reach for this on a regular basis and you can create several looks! The colours I use most are Naked and Buck (in my crease), I love Sin and Virgin on the eyebrow bone...and even if I'm using other eyeshadows, I'll still reach to this palette and use a colour to complete the look...in particular, Toasted, Half Baked, and Dark Horse...But my opinion is that this palette is a definite staple in anyone's make up collection!
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - Color Icon Trio - Walking on Eggshells

If you're looking for a simple, subtle, toned down, everyday palette, this trip is perfect for you! Obviously there isn't much colour to it, it's very toned down, but these colours together create a nice pulled together look. When I wear coloured lipstick and don't know how I want to do my eyes, I'll reach for this trio to keep the look simple. I wouldn't normally reach for this if I'm heading out on a weekend, but definitely a worthwhile staple in my collection!
Bronzers -New York Color - Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder in Sunny 720

This product is definitely a steal! Great price, great product! I have warm undertones and because this is a cool toned bronzer I don't really wear it as a bronzer, but I use it to contour my face. I was a bit concerned initally thinking it would look bad on me, but it's perfect, especially in the winter months as my skin is lighter. It leaves me with a nice, subtle contour without making me look orangey. In the summer, it may not work as well since my skin gets more tanned. But for a few dollars, you can't go wrong with this product!
The colour is so pretty I just had to buy it and after trying it out, I love it! It leaves the lips with a subtle lilac colour and if I want to deepen the colour I'll apply Revlon's Just Bitten lipstain in Darling. The formula is a beautiful non-sticky solution. If you want to add some new colours to your collection, this one is different from most others, subtle yet still pretty. Keep in mind though that the colour will have different effects on everyone based on natural lip colour and skin tone. It's worth a try though!
I was very surprised by this product! In a good way! I bought it was it was on sale at the local drugstore. I wasn't expecting to find a match for my skin since I didn't really see a large amount of colour selection, but luckily I did. The texture is so smooth and blends easily. I dab it all over my face and blend it out with a flat top kabuki brush. I have combination skin and it gives me a nice, matte, clean finish. My skin looks flawless. It has a medium coverage. The only con is that it doesnt have lasting power as some other foundations do. But I love how it makes my face look once applied!
After seeing JLo's new video, 'Goin In' I saw her wearing a nice coral lip I just had to find something similar. To me coral can sometimes look more pink and sometimes more orangey, so I was trying to find something more on the orangey side. As I think Revlon has the best lipstick shades, I hit the drugstore and found Siren. It's creamy, goes on nice and smooth, and definitely gives a nice pop of colour! To recreate the look I applied a clear gloss first and then applied the lipstick to give it a more muted tone. But if I'm going out, I would definitely skip the gloss and use the bold orange colour and pair it with a nice, subtle bronzed eye (as JLo has in the video). I would definitely repurchase this!
This product definitely lengethened my lashes and gave me the look of 'falsies'...but with a bit of clumping...For me, the Mega Plush is great as I find it doesnt clump as much, but at the price of no length...so if they could make a formula between the Mega Plush and the Falsies, it would probably be a great product! I think I'll splurge a bit on my next mascara and try Benefit's They're Real...still searching for a great mascara...I would repurchase this one again because I do like that it lengthened my lashes, but maybe only apply one coat as I find it clumps on the second coat...
After all the hype around this product, I decided to purchase this on a trip I took to Buffalo as we hadn't received it in Canada yet. The coverage is medium-full coverage. I'm a medium skin tone with yellow undertones, I bought Warm Golden, it matches pretty closely and I like the finish, but I feel that in pictures this foundation leaves a white cast...even without setting it with powder...I'm not sure if that's because I should buy a shade darker or if it's just the foundation. I wonder if anyone else has had the same problem with this foundation? You get a lot of product and it will last you a long time, but if you have warm undertones, it will be difficult to find your right colour. I would not repurchase this again.
Out of all the concealers I have, this one definitely offers me the most coverage...I have yet to find a concealer that doesnt really crease, but given that this one gives me the best coverage and slightly creases, this is still my fave concealer to all the other ones I use. It covers my dark circles magnificently. After I apply this, I will go over it with a small sponge to soak up any extra concealer that may eventually crease. Then pat the under eye area with my finger to spread it out again in case the sponge removed a little too much. If you have dryness under the eyes, this will likely create a `cakey`look so I would suggest using some moisturizer or primer under the eyes. But I am still on the hunt for my HG concealer...
I bought the little Coral my world kit, which offered a sample size of the coralista blush since I wasn't sure I wanted to spend over $30 on a blush...As soon as I got home I tried it on my foundation-free face and the colour didnt show up, possibly because my skin is a bit uneven and can have red patches near the cheeks. However, once I put on foundation and applied the blush, it gave me a nice peachy, yet subtle glow. I thought the colour would've shown up a tad darker on me, but it was very subtle with a satiny finish. Although it doesnt have as much of a peachy 'pop' that I was expecting, I still like the glowy, peachy way it makes my cheeks look.

I'm quite surprised reading the negative reviews on this product. I actually really like this foundation. It worked great for me...I have combination skin and it gives me good coverage, makes my skin look 'airbrushed'...I dab dots all over my face and then use a flat top kabuki to blend it in and it blends quite nicely. It leaves a matte finish and makes my face look flawless. I would definitely recommend this foundation.
