Eyeliner -New York Color - Eye Liner Pencil in 921A (Black)

This is a really good eyeliner for less than a buck! It glides on smoothly and looks expensive. I just wish it was waterproof.
L'oreal's HIP line is amazing! I'm in love with the whole line, especially their chrome eyeliners. The colors are amazingly pigmented and look good on every skin color! It glides on smoothly and lasts for a long time!
Price paid: $60 @ Ulta I actually like Smashbox products b/c of their fun colors, so I bought this palette. This palette is actually kind of like a 'Smashbox-sample-palette' cause it contains samples of their full-sized products...I call it "samples" b/c of how little everything is. The eyeshadows that comes with this palette are very small (dime sized)...I feel like they are gonna run out fast! Anyways, the colors aren't very pigmented without a primer, which sucks. Also, the eyeshadow shades are very typical-- most of the colors are regular/usual colors, nothing bright. However, I do like how this palette contains a variety of gel liners and lipsticks.

This foundation is not that bad. They have alot of shades to choose from. The formula is very bendable and goes on smoothly, without looking cakey. I use it as a medium coverage, but it's a build-able foundation, so you can definitely make it into full coverage.
Horrible product! I just wanted to try it cause it was really cheap-- I got it for $1. Anyways, this formula felt really heavy on my skin..my eyelid felt taut and weird. This formula is also kind-of runny..eeek! I hate it. If you wana try out a better quality, affordable formula, try NYC's liquid liner..i think it's only $3 or something.

I don't like the LA colors quads cause I don't feel like they are pigmented at all. At least not the ones I bought. Plus, I feel like they are really chalky looking.
Eye Shadow -L.A. Colors - Shimmering Loose Eyeshadow (all colors)

I love these loose eyeshadows. They are cheap and works really well if you use a eyeshadow primer with them. The colors are pigmented and looks expensive (if worn correctly). Overall, good product cause it's only $1-$2 a piece! Try it out :-)
Eye Shadow -L.A. Colors - 6 color Metallic Eyeshadow in Cafe Au Lait

I heard a lot that L.A. colors is a good, budget friendly brand. However, I don't like their products much even though it's cheap. I only like their loose eyeshadows. Anyways, this product i'm reviewing today is horrible. It's not pigmented at all, so don't waste your money on it, even if it's only a buck! Maybe the colors will show up on fair skin tones, but I'm tan and it didn't show at all in my skin. Overall, I didn't like this product.
Pros: -The price -Good coverage with high Spf 30! -Main 3 shades available: Light, medium, dark Cons: -Not waterproof at all! When I touched my face after washing my hands, the color started melting on the areas it got a little water! -Need to apply the moisturizer fast after mixing in hands..or else you will get flaky texture. -Thick formula (compared to other tinted moisturizer formulas on the market)..it's more like a medium-coverage foundation than a tinted moisturizer.
This product gives amazing results for how much it's worth. I bought it for like $8. However, usually you can score a good deal on Revlon products (at various stores that carry makeup products). This eyeliner is totally waterproof and doesn't come off easily. You have to use some type of makeup remover to take it off.
I love MAC foundations! They have so many foundation colors, so you always get a perfect match. This product in particular, has great coverage. It's very build-able as well. The formula also glides on smoothly and lasts a long time! But, in my opinion, it is expensive..I paid $25 for it b/c I got the normal bottle (with regular lid/cap). If you want to get the pump cap/lid, then that's another $5 extra..so your total comes out to be $30 for a 30ml/1.0 oz bottle...however, the foundation last for a long time (cause you only need a little per usage), so your money is totally worth it!
This stuff is great! I use this 2x a week and I have clear skin!

This product is great! It's cheap and keeps my face from shining all day! Highend makeup brands carry similar products like this and sell it for alot more $$$!
I first heard about the "Asprin mask" from Michelle Phan's Youtube channel. I tried it out and it did make my face soft. But, I didn't notice any difference in my skin tone..it could be because I only it did it once, ever! This mask works best if you do it once a week...and you should see results within a month of use.. step 1: Take 3 uncoated asprin tablets and place in a pan. step 2: gently sprinkle each tablet with a few drops of water (use your finger or a dropper). step 3: when you notice the tablet getting softer (after a few mins), crush them with your fingers or using a spoon. step 4: apply to entire face and wait 10-15 mins. step 5: rinse your face with lukewarm water. step 6: moisturize face as usual. * Make sure to use a high SPF moisturizer when using this mask cause it makes your skin sensitive to sun's rays. Good luck!
At first I hated this mascara because you do get clumps frequently. However, it does stay true to what the mascara says it does..which is gives alot of volume! For the price $5.99, this mascara is worth a try. But, it does dry out really quickly, hence, the clumps :-(
