Brulé is great for an overall wash of color on the lid. Its matte and there's no shimmer. Also nice for brow highlight. Love the pro pan because it stores easily in my palettes.
I just got my very first bottle of this oil, and I already LOVE it! I bought the travel size just to see if I like it. It feels really luxurious, and it really does remove every last trace of makeup. I follow this with MAC Green Gel cleanser, and they are a nice combo. Pretty pricey, but it's MAC quality, and I will continue to buy it.
I'm kinda late to the party for this one, and I just got mine today at CCO. At first I thought it'd be too stark white, but when I applied it to my lower waterline, it just gives a flesh toned brightness to my eyes. Now be mindful, if you apply it too heavily, it will look stark white and fake looking. Can't wait to try it out with different looks!
Picked this up at Walmart today. It was $6. The cute packaging caught my eye. It has an hour glass shaped brush. Claims to give MAX volume. It did volumize the base of my lashes, but it sucks at lengthening. The weird center part of the wand where it curves in makes it hard to get in there and wiggle the brush onto every lash. I give it a 2/5. Don't bother with this one. Buy something else.
really beautiful blue pink shade with shimmer. Its my first mineralize blush. Staying power is good too.
I believe this is my HG pink lipstick! Paired with minimal makeup, it's a great color for spring & summer! Best to use a lip primer so it doesn't bleed or feather, and/or MAC Lip Erase to get the truest color. I hate matte lipsticks so I top it with MAC Right Image Cremesheen lip glass and it's so beautiful! Love love love it!
Just picked this up the other day. Cremesheen is my fav MAC lip glass formula because it's not sticky. By itself, it's pretty sheer, even though in the tube it's a bright blue toned pink. My fav way to use it is with NYX Hot Pink lip liner, Revlon Balm Stain in Sweetheart, and Right Image on top. It lasts a pretty long time for a gloss. One of my fav shades.
Loose Powders -Laura Mercier - Secret Brightening Powder

I just got this powder and I already love it. I bought it mainly to set undereye concealer. But this morning I just tested it out by applying it very lightly over my foundation in the T zone. I didn't think anything of it until I got to work just now, and looked in a mirror. OMG my skin looks FLAWLESS. I mean it looks airbrushed! It doesn't take much at all to make your skin look good. I am super pale and I still think it brightened my undereye area. Not really a fan of the packaging, some of it always seem to come out, even after the lid is on tightly. Best product I've bought in a while.
Mascara -Jordana - Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara

Sadly this did nothing for me. I bought it solely based on the reviews here. I found it to be just an average mascara. I didn't get very much volume or lengthening. It was also too wet. I prefer a slightly drier mascara formula. It went in the trash.
NEWS FLASH: Stop complaining about not being able to sharpen NYX JEP!! Go to Walmart and look for an eyeliner sharpener. The one I got from there has two holes, one for a regular size pencil, and larger one for big pencils. It was less than $1.00. Problem solved. I've never had any issues with sharpening. Now onto my review. I never apply these pencils to my lid straight from the stick. I find that puts down too much product. If you want a lighter application, rub the pencil onto your ring finger, then apply it to your lid. I promise it will go on more evenly, and probably look better.
Just received this in the mail. Its basically a tinted lip conditioner that looks like a lip gloss on the lips. Pink Powder is a very natural looking shade, at least on me. Its a YLBB for sure. I've been laying on a little more for a soft bright pink lip. I like that it isn't goopy or sticky. It feels like its actually moisturizing my lips. The scent is nice, sort of fruity. The only thing I don't like is having to stick my finger in it each time. Maybe I'll invest in a lip brush. Will repurchase in other shades. $6 on Sleek website.
Product Description: With SPF 15 to protect against harmful UV rays, Luminous Pressed Powder is infused with light reflecting mica pigments for a fresh, dewy glow. $9 on Sleek website. I just received this powder and I like it. I admit I thought it would be bigger than it is. (It isn't as big as MAC MSF.) I've been on the hunt for a replacement for my MSF, and I think this might be it. When you open the compact, immediately you see sparkles in this powder. I was thinking "damn do I have to use this as a highlighter now?", but when you put it on your skin, there is no shimmer or sparkle at all. It does give a "glow" or "radiance" to the skin. I think any skin type could use this. I don't have oily skin, so I can't say how well it would control oil. It does not take much product at all. Today I only used concealer and this, and I'm happy with the coverage. Its not massive coverage, but it does even out the skintone. I am about a MAC NC10-15, and I ordered this in Shade 01 for fair skin. Good color match. Would definitely repurchase.
I just bought my very first Sleek lipstick in the color Liqueur. It is a sheen lipstick. I am very fair and this particular shade suits me well. It is a mid tone pink, and in the tube it has gold shimmer. However once you put it on, it is a creamy neutral pink with no shimmer. I find that it is really buttery, and feels nice on the lips. Reminds me of MAC lustre lipsticks. I'm not crazy about the packaging of this lipstick. When I got my package of Sleek products and opened it up, I saw the lipstick and I was like "wow this is tiny". But it is convenient to just throw in your purse or even your pocket. I'm planning on buying more colors.
I received a sample size in my Glossybox. I used it one day when I was too lazy to blowdry my hair. I used it to scrunch my waves/curls and then let it air dry. It has light hold and my waves/curls were perfectly formed with no frizz. The pump style packaging sucks. Attempting to use this pump with slick hands is annoying.
Lotions/ Creams -Vaseline - Spray & Go Moisturizer

I got this free in my Sugar n Spice VoxBox. Seen it advertised on TV, and glad I got it. This is a basic lotion, not greasy or heavy duty. I use it at work because I wash my hands a lot. I like the spray can. If you have super dry skin, I would stay away.
