Eyeliner -Maybelline - Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner

I bought this in brown because I have been looking for a gel liner that is similar to the wet n wild one I use all the time. This is way to creamy for me and just not dark enough- I can still see my skin through the liner. WnW is the best drugstore gel liner hands down but they don't have a variety of shades. I was hoping this would be what I had been hoping for but its not and I never use it.

I LOVE the smell of this and I am not a vanilla, sweet scented amber liking kinda person...I usually hate those types of scents...but this...I dunno what it is but the mix of scents is so freakin yummy!!! I love the way it works with my chemistry and it is definitely one of my faves. I disagree with whoever compared this to a BBW amber scent...those are so gross to me and I cannot even bear the smell...this is much more sexy and spicy!
I like this color a lot for everyday. Sometimes lipstick seems to much for whatever eye look I am wearing and this gloss is a good hint of color that isn't a nude. I am not a huge fan of the smell, its like cheap fruit punch candy(???) but it doesn't linger so whatever..
This stuff is AMAZING. I have been looking for something to remove my gel eyeliner which I love but is like a permanent tattoo and a pain to remove...this removed it ALL in one swipe. This is what I wanted Philosphy's purity to do for me but it just couldn't get the eyeliner completely off. I use this and wash my face with the Purity and I feel clean...I never wake up with make up residue under my eyes anymore!
To me...this is what I was expecting BBW tahitian lotion to smell like but something always seemed off about that one. This smells awesome, perfect for those who like musky beachy scent.

There are two things that make me want to sniff myself all day long...this and BBW Japanese Cherry Blossom. No matter how much I smell it, I never get tired of it. This is an awesome body oil and a little goes a long way. I have been using oils for my dry skin for years now and this is by far my fave. I do agree the pour bottle is kinda messy if you're not careful but not that big a deal.

I love this stuff. I am very light and other bronzers look too obvious or orange on me. This is not too pigmented and gives me just enough color so that I don't look dead. I still see it all over the place and just bought back ups on BOGO@Rite Aid. It lasts forever too.

I also bought it due to youtube reviews and didn't look here, I should've. DOn't like it..doesn't last....won't buy it again.
I got this BOGO at CVS so I got two shades- Vanilla & Shell because they were so close I wasn't sure which to pick. I ended up liking Shell more but Vanilla is still wearable for me. I like this foundation and the coverage it gives. It doesn't last very long which is why I only gave 4 but it looks good for majority of the day. I does have shimmer in it but only in direct sunlight which I am not usually standing in so I don't really care. I would buy again.
I think it smells nice.....but it reminds me of something else or several other perfumes. I like gardenia type scents so it wasn't too overpowering for me.....It was okay but not enough for me to buy it, theres other fragrances I am waiting to buy that I prefer over this.

So, I'm not sure if mine were dipped in battery acid or something but this was way too harsh on my skin. I guess if I ever needed confirmation that I have sensitive skin...this was it. It gave me little red rash bumps all on my chin, and on either side of my nose on my cheeks. I rarely get pimples and just wanted something to "rejuvinate" a little. This was not it! The bumps were SO itchy and drove me crazy for days...I think I'll give this away and stick to more gentler products...
This is what I use when I want a bolder lip but don't want to go dark or too bright. I love Up the Amp and this for me is a more wearable day version of that mauvey pink look.
This is just my type of color and it has a really pretty finish. I always end up choosing things in the mauve pink family because they suit me the most. This is very wearable and can be done light or very dramatic which I love
Polishes -Sephora - Sephora by OPI - Domestic Goddess

I really like this color on my fair skin tone. It compliments my hands and doesn't look too harsh in my opinion. I tried this on at sephora when they had the 3 pack but this was the only one I liked. The pink was too light and I am not a fan of Metro Chic, so I just got this one.
I actually bought the matte version of this by accident, so maybe the finish and my opinion was swayed by that. The finish was really streaky and I don't think this color and matte go well together. I am fair with yellow undertones and this just did not look good on my hands. I think this would look great on warmer skin tones, because I still like the color in the bottle, just not on me.
