This product works. Actually gives my heavy hair some lift. I've used other drug store brands in the past and felt like they didn't do anything, but I can see results with this. I'll be sticking to this for a while! EDIT: It works but it's sticky and that gets annoying because I have to wash my hands every time after I blow dry. I haven't repurchased in a long time...
Highlighters -MAC - Iridescent Pressed Powder - Delicacy

This is one of my favourite products. It gives a great dewy look and automatically brightens up my face. I like using this rather than an eyeshadow for a highlighter because it is so easy to apply. Would repurchase but I don't think I have to for a while, because they give you so much and you only need to use a little. EDIT: I bought this a long time ago before there were more alternatives on the market. I don't use it very often and I wouldn't repurchase because I think you can find something better out there. I lowered the rating :(
Mascara -Maybelline - Unstoppable Mascara [DISCONTINUED]

This mascara definitely does not smudge and actually does a great job at lengthening. The only fault is that the brush design seems to encourage clumps, but I'm going to try using the mascara with a better brush (CoverGirl LashExact) and see how that works. Still, by itself, it is a good mascara and I will keep repurchasing for a long time.
Aside from not providing any volume or length, this mascara smudged like crazy and always left me with raccoon eyes. The pink and green tube is pretty appealing, but not worth it.
Mostly, I dislike the fragrance, but the quality of the blush didn't do enough to win me over. I found it to be too chalky, and the colour is so faint that you can only see it if you cake it on, and by that point the smell gets too overbearing. Also, I don't know if it's just me, but it seemed to bring out my pores which I didn't like at all. Would not repurchase.
