I decided to give this product a whirl because of the hype. The packaging is extremely cute and the small wand gives you more control than a regular sized wand. However, I'm not a fan of the product itself. I have stubby small asian lashes and this really did nothing to help them stand out or lengthen. I get more results with a regular sized mascara. This tends to flake alot and it really doesn't last long on your eyes. Also, if you go over board applying, you will clump.
I think this product really is a hit or miss for different people. Personally, I love it! It looks great against my tan skintone and the color really is a milky pale light pink. The bottle is cute and the brush is small so its easy to control. When combined with Essie first base coat, my manicure doesn't chip for about 6 days, which is way longer than my other polishes. I was alittle blown away that it lasted so long. The chipping is not the problem, but if you leave it on your nails too long, you will start to see some light cracking in the polish. I got it for $6, so I'm happy with it.

I was not impressed by this product at all. It has no staying power and the colors are not pigmented. The eyeshadow itself is quite flaky and just doesn't look great. Over time I would just reach for the white shade for my inner corner, but it would last for about 1 hour and then disappear. The saying, "you get what you pay for" is very true in this case. Overall, I would not recommend.

This bronzer is a bargain! I don't really use this on my face often, but I do use it on my neck and chest when my face looks a little too dark. Sometimes I'll sweep a little of this for contouring and its great because if you apply with a light hand you won't look muddy. I would definitely recommend this since it's so cheap!
Months ago before I bought this, I was extremely excited. Unfortunately, once I bought this I immediately didn't like it. I have tried numerous times to use this on my upper lash line and it always smudges hours later. And I wear glasses, so I don't even touch/rub my eyes. It goes on quite easily and is definitely a strong rich black, but it smudges easily. Will not be repurchasing this one!
I have been using these to remove my makeup for a while. They do the job quite well and I don't have the problem with the stinging. I really do think it removes most of my full coverage makeup and it hasn't irritated my skin. Whenever I am in a pinch I just grab on of these towelettes and I'm quite happy with it compared to the Neutrogena ones I used to use. Definitely will repurchase these when I run out.
Personally, I think this works just as nicely as the Macadamia hair masque does. I use this once a week and am quite happy with it. I'm on my second bottle! It has a lovely coconut scent that really lasts in your hair. After a few times using this, it really did make my Asian hair softer, shinier, and less frizzy. It is very simple to use and the price is great. I would definitely recommend picking this up and trying it for yourself.
This are my favorite lip glosses! I have a few of them, but my favorite are Natural and Sponge Cake. These go on really nicely and are quite moisturizing. Most importantly, these aren't sticky! I hate sticky lip glosses and I have finally found my solution. They last quite a while; and personally I like the applicator. Would definitely recommend it.
This is a great starter primer for people getting into makeup. However, it does not last me all day and doesn't stop my oily lids like the Urban Decay primer potion does. It would probably work great if someone didn't have oily lids and it certainly lasts a long time for $1.
When you follow the directions and apply this the night before, this stuff really works! I will admit my underarms sweat quite alot and when I use this I don't have to worry about that issue the next day. The next morning I just apply some Dove deodorant and I'm fresh all day. The only complaint is that this roller formula is STRONG. If you have sensitive armpits like I do, it will sting and be very irritating that night. At first I thought oh maybe its because I just shaved so the skin was sensitive, but that is not the case. I have used this multiple times and it never fails to sting horribly. But, I love this so I will just switch over to the stick formula. Def. worth giving it a try!

This is my favorite perfume! It smells absolutely fantastic because it has a vanilla scent to it. I always get compliments when I wear this and for me it lasts all day! Apparently, to get the most wear its good to spray it on your clothes or hair. One spray is really all I need. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone shopping for a new perfume.
Blush -Physicians Formula - Happy Booster™ Glow & Mood Boosting Blush in rose

It really wasn't anything special for me. The packaging is adorable because its case is pink and the sweet heart pattern inside. However, it really doesn't last long and for what it is, its expensive. And, the included brush is terrible. I used multiple brushes and it just doesn't look great. Will not be purchasing this again.
The price is quite steep and I'm not a huge fan of the box packaging. But, other than that I like how it looks on my NW35 skin. If you apply with a light hand, you'll end up with a pretty color and for me the color lasts all day! And it doesn't break out my acne prone skin so, I wear this quite often. I'd definitely recommend it if you can get your hands on it.
I love this as a highlight! I wear it everyday on my NW35 skin and it looks great! No problems with it breaking out my sensitive skin either. The only complaint I have is that the packaging breaks really easily. And once it breaks, it can be quite messy. Other than that, I'd recommend it.
This is a pretty decent base coat. Personally, I've found that it works great with other Essie nail polishes as well as Sally Hansen ones. With Essie I can last about 5 days with no chips. For my OPI nail polishes, it works okay, but not fantastically. I can get about 2/3 days with no chips. Overall, it is definitely worth a try to see if you like it.
