This is my new favorite blush! Packaging- Super cute and pink! I love how they have a mirror and a compartment underneath the brush pan for a brush they give you, though I probably won't use it that often. Color and Pigmentation- AWESOME. I used this on a night I went out with my friends and it came out in full in all the pictures. It's really pigmented, so you don't need a lot, so it'll probably last a very long time. I also love the design of the blush, the hearts are adorable! Lasting Power- Also great. The night I went out, it looked just as good from when I left to the minute I got home. I never gave PF a fair shake, but I'll be buying some more of their stuff now that I've had such a great experience with this! Definitely worth a try at least!
I love this bronzer! On natural days, I use it as a contour because it's not super pigmented and on going out nights, I use it all over to give me a sunkissed glow. Although it's not as pigmented as I'd like, I found different uses for it! Also, I've seen people use it as an eyeshadow palette, so I'll be trying that soon to see if it works. You get an outstanding amount for $3. It is totally worth the money... BUY BUY BUY! It's definitely worth a shot for the price! You can't go wrong! I would definitely repurchase again.
ELF has some quality products but this one just fell flat for me. I agree with others below in the fact that I got almost no color pay off. No matter how much I put on, nothing happens and it just looks cakey on me. When I saw the color in the pan, I got so excited because it's beautiful, but it has no pigmentation. I know it is cheap, but I bought Love and Beauty cream blushes for a dollar fifty and they show up really well. I'm gonna finish it off until it's gone because I don't like to waste money, but I'll only use it if I'm going to work or doing something casual.
BB Cream -Too Faced - Tinted Beauty Balm Multi-Benefit Skin Care Makeup

I really wanted to try my hand at BB creams since it is an all-in-one product. I've always loved Too Faced cosmetics in the past so I thought it would be a good one to try. I went to Sephora and got a sample of it for free and I'm so glad I didn't purchase the full product. I have very sensitive skin and I just took it off today, my second time using it, and I already see a small breakout that I believe will only get worse with continued use. I won't be using it again and repurchasing. However, I LOVE the way it looks on me. It doesn't look cakey, it makes my skin look super healthy and feel awesome. I would recommend it if you don't break out easily. I wish I could repurchase, but it's not worth the pimples. I'll just stick to the foundation I always use (MAC Face and Body)... if it ain't broke, don't fix it. I always seem to learn this lesson the hard way.
Pressed Powders -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish Natural - Medium

I LOVE this powder! It has more coverage then your average pressed powder, which is perfect for evening out your skin tone. I put a healthy amount on with a powder brush and it doesn't seem to cake up on me. It's a bit pricey, but you get a good amount and it does it's job for sure. I will probably stick with this for a while. I use it over MAC Face and Body and it's awesome!
This is my new HG foundation! I have pretty normal skin but it is more on the dry side and this foundation is perfect for it! It leaves a dewy finish and I tone it down a bit with a powder, but it honestly looks good if you just leave it. I wouldn't say it was good for oily skin because the finish is really dewy on me and my skin is dryish. You can not beat the price! You pay like 30 something dollars for it but you get four oz, whereas drugstore you get 1 or 1.5! You definitely can't beat the value! I love this and the coverage is pretty sheer, but build-able. I use two coats and it's perfect for me! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Eye Makeup Remover -Wet 'n' Wild - eye make-up remover

This product is TERRIBLE! I caught it on sale at Walgreens and I've used it twice. It burned so much both times I used it so I stopped and woke up today with prominent fine lines because of how dry it made my skin. I've been loading up with moisturizer ever since and I'm praying they go away. I got it for a dollar, so I guess I should've known it wouldn't be very good but it's a lot worse then I thought it would be. DON'T buy it. It dries out your skin so much.
