Before this mascara I never understood what someone meant when they said " this mascara flakes" well I DO NOW! It really does flake pretty badly within two minutes and even with those makeup fixer sticks it is hard to get rid of them because they travel pretty far down my face.Because of this brushes shape( Christmas tree) you use the wide end of the brush for your outer lashes it makes to hard to do both eye with the same technique . Which is just to much work I shouldn't need to figure out which hand to use on which eye to get the mascara to work especially on a mascara that flakes.

I've only had this a few days but I have to say I love it.It has suck a nice color and you don't lose the color as the day goes on.My favorite part is that there isn't any shimmer in this.You can also just use a tiny section of the blush instead of the whole thing if you are going for a certain look which was just great
Eyes -Maybelline - Expert Eyes Eye Shadow Quad in Seashore Frost

I find that this qaud just has no pigmentation on my eye.It takes like 3 hard wipes to get it on my hand and even after all that you can only see 2 colors well the others disappear and on my eye you get 1 viable color.Even when wet the pigmentation is only passable. I know they are pastel but that doesn't mean that they should disappear on your eye.I have really light skin (classic ivory) so there no reason that they shouldn't show up on my eye.I loved the natural smokes so I thought they would all be very pigmented but they are not. :(
Blush -Hard Candy - Blush Crush Baked Blush #127 Honeymoon

For me this is waaaay to shimmery to be used as a blush.Its a pretty color in the pan and you get alot of product (8g) it makes me look way to shiny. I find that the shimmer migrates to other areas of your face making you look like a 6 year old playing pretend in mom makeup drawer. If you like shimmery blushes you will love this.
Pressed Powders -E.L.F. - Clarifying Pressed Powder
mirageangelhope 11/3/2011 1:02:00 AM
It's the right shade for me it goes on and really does blend into my skin and does not leave this orange look to my skin. I like this one way better than the one that comes from the 3 dollar line.It's a great beginners powder to see if powders work for your skin tone.
This product (in light) goes on with a strong orangey undertone so I hate that aspect.It does cover things on it's own and adds coverage over foundation but it sometimes continues to get more orange throughout the day .Sometimes I use this to add a little color on my very pale days but for the most part this item is a waste for me.Maybe in the darker shades it will not turn orange. The pressed powder from the dollar line works almost as well without the orange color so I will be sticking with that one the next time I run out.
Lip Treatments -E.L.F. - Studio Lip Conditioning Balm in Mellow Melon
mirageangelhope 10/13/2011 12:38:00 AM
I really love the product.The color is beautiful and the moisturizing is great. Before when my lips were dry or chapped I would put on lypsyl lip repair and it helped but it smell and the consistency made it hard to use during the day .I find that this works almost as well as that but without the about the problems. This doesn't slip and slide nor is it thick and goopy, there is a nice balance between the two.I regret now only ordering the one. The ONLY PROBLEM with this The packaging SUCKS!Because of the container strange shape(square) it is not that easy to get your hands around and open. It's a twist top that is almost impossible to close even if you were staring right at the two parts and it doesn't get easier with practice.
This is a bright red shimmery color and my favorite of the 2 I own. I love this color but I find it kind of out there so this may not be for you.This one broke on me forcing me to put in in a container and use a lip brush making the color go on even brighter than it would go straight from the tube.This didn't disappoint it goes on the same color as it is in the tube.. This gloss has a rounded tip with a hole in the middle making it easier to get it on you lips in all the right places.You just have to remember not to squeeze to hard since there is no way to get the extra product back in the tube. This is a thicker lip gloss so if you like thinner consistency this will not be the product for you!
Lip Gloss -L'Oreal - Color Juice - Strawberry Smoothie
mirageangelhope 10/13/2011 12:01:00 AM
This is a nice brown orange shimmery color.I thought I would try this because L'oreal is known for their lip products and this didn't disappoint it goes on the same color as it is in the tube. It is the same with the other from this line that I have.This gloss has a rounded tip with a hole in the middle making it easier to get it on you lips in all the right places.You just have to remember not to squeeze to hard since there is no way to get the extra product back in the tube This is a thicker lip gloss so if you like thinner consistency this will not be the product for you.One of these broke on me forcing me to put in in a container and use a lip brush making it thickness really evident.I thick this gloss lasts longer because of it's thickness.
I'd give this zeros if I could.The shadow broke the first time I used it making it hard to do the look. It doesn't make a nice look even after you get the shade stick glued back in. Even if it did it creases in 2 seconds before the crease shade is applied the lid shade has lines,even with a base and primer under and eye shadow over. Just stay away and save your ten dollars and buy nyx shade sticks or even magic markers would be better in creating a makeup look than this.
Lip Liners -Rimmel - Exaggerate Full Color Lip Liner in Eastend Snob
mirageangelhope 10/12/2011 1:53:00 AM
When I first got it I was using this as eyeliner didn't see the lip liner on the tag . It worked great for that purpose it goes on just as easily as the exaggerate eyeliners.This also makes a great nudish pink all over lip-color esp with a clear gloss on top for a very classy look. I really like this color so many things you can do with it because of it's great quality that can go with many different skin tones.
Eyeliner -Annabelle - Kohl Pencil Crayon in "Black"
mirageangelhope 10/12/2011 1:34:00 AM
This liner goes on easily and stays on pretty well.My one problem is this is not the blackest black it more like charcoal to me, so this isn't my go to liner. I also find when applying this the black ends up all down the sides so if i'm not careful putting this on it can end up further up the eye than intended. I'll stick with my gosh one, it's a bit more expensive but it's really black . and since you don't have to keep going over it you use less The product is good it just depends on how black you like it.
Eyeliner -Rimmel - Exaggerate Waterproof Eye Definer - Purple Shock
mirageangelhope 10/12/2011 12:38:00 AM
I love the pigmentation I find that it goes on so bright when you have the primer or shadow on underneath..It stays that color all day it doesn't go from purple and fade to pink like some say.This is creamy instead of waxy so this is great with an eye look or just on it's own to give you eye a simple pop of color before walking out the door.I would buy this in every color since all the ones I have are this pigmented. If you are having trouble with getting it close enough to your lash line you should know there is a sharpener underneath the smudger which not everyone seems to know about so using the sharpener can help make application easier. Don't try and put it on with the tip absolutely flat as this will lessen the color pay off.
Blush -Cover Girl - Instant Cheekbones Contouring Blush - Peach Perfection
mirageangelhope 10/11/2011 11:50:00 PM
Get blushes from this series instead of the cheekers much better quality.You won't regret it. I wasn't going to get this after having a crappy experience with a cheekers blush the w eek before (natural rose had no pigmentation) but my store had this on liquidation I thought I would give it a try. These are amazingly pigmented and they don't rub off .They are very buildible so if you think a color isn't dark enough you add more without having it look cakey.I don't use all three together as the darkest just looks odd in the hollow of my cheeks but with all the shade choices you should find one that will look just great on you
Liquid -Annabelle - SkinTrue Natural Lightweight Makeup
mirageangelhope 10/11/2011 9:54:00 PM
I really like this foundation it's is a great in between matte and dewey finish that I really like.It has a medium coverage but it really does need to be set with a powder other wise it will really start fading.It has a squeeze tube keeping the tube from getting really mess.It also comes with 40ml rather than the stantard 39 mls from most drugstore brands You can get this in Walmart for almost 3 dollars cheaper than in the pharmaprix so just keep that in mind
