Eye Shadow -Bonne Bell - Eye Shadow Box-Hip Hop Charcoals

Only 1 color of the 4 is pigmented and the others are mediocre with tons of shimmer not bad if you are just starting out though.Thankfully I found this at the dollar store saving 5,50
There is no pigmentation in this blush at all like you rub and rub and rub and my finger is still white not even shimmer.Not all cg blushes are like that I have the instant cheek bones in peach and there is amazing pigmentation in all three colors
I really don't like the balm aspact of this or the color.I find this to go on well but shortly after that I find my illps to b very drying I know that title that pearl shine but this is pearl to the extreme it does not look nice not it's own. As well I find it's scent very off putting and gives me a headache
Highlighters -E.L.F. - Shimmer Facial Whip in Spotlight
mirageangelhope 10/10/2011 11:51:00 PM
I purchased 2 of these thinking I would really like them and I do just not this color for some reason the white one's are so runny that they are hard to get on you face without getting it all over your face.It is a really good highlighter constancy aside so I use the other colors which I have never had a problem and those I can just apply right to my face instead of my hand and than my face.
I like this it says really nice color pay off and a lovely texture If it gets dry( as happened to me because I had closed it incorrectly) one tiny drop of eye drops brings in back to life without changing consistency.\the consistency is less gloopy than the maybelline ones I must say that the packaging SUCKS! 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.Because of the container strange shape(square) it is not that easy to get your hands around and open. Cream blushes in general as a group do not stay on my skin well so I would buy this as a base for my powder foundation but of all the ones I have tried I like this one best for texture and payoff.
Makeup Brushes -E.L.F. - Professional Bronzing Brush
mirageangelhope 10/10/2011 11:02:00 PM
I think that this brush is decent.I pretty much just use this for bronzer and because of it's shape it really works but after being washed it can get a little rough but only at the tip. For me the brush works and blends well. If I want a thinner line and better brush I use the studio angled contour brush and for the money you might be better off with this at only 3$. Tip if you use a brush guard it seems to keep the bristles from fraying.
THIS SUCKS!The foundation has tons of shimmery sparkles in it and I find that it makes my look like Edward Cullen esp in photos and I do not know who would want that. It is a little better inn person but not worth the 19$ it costs in canada I have gone back to my true match by l'oreal The coverage is full coverage and it stays on pretty well and melts on to your skin allowing the sparkles to spread .I also smelled it to see if it does smell like paint thinner and without a pump you get the full smell when you open them.
This is my first gel/cream so I don't have much to judge it by but I like it.It pretty black and creamy and goes on easily which is saying lot since I had never even seen one before.If it gets dry( as happened to me because I had closed it incorrectly) one tiny drop of eye drops brings in back to life without changing consistency. I must say that the packaging SUCKS! 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.Because of the container strange shape(square) it is not that easy to get your hands around and open.
I LOVE THIS! It really covers everything.I have had it since may and use it 4 days a week and even though I used it once as a foundation the tube looks like 90% full. I have real serious bags and have all my life and this product makes them go away not covers them up sort of. This makes it look like they were never there and leave bright young skin in there place. Even though it's 30$ it;s totally worth it for the results and for how long the tube last. I think I will always have this on hand because I don't see how anything could top this.
Lip Gloss -New York Color - Liquid Lip Shine in Fashion Ave Fuchsia
mirageangelhope 10/5/2011 12:21:00 AM
\This product is a really true fuchsia. This goes on bright and stays bright. This one really brighten up my face and makes me look polished.I have 5 of the color of nyc and they are all really pigmented and of great quality esp for 3 dollars. It is on the same level as my 9 dollar rimmel vinyl glosses .The packaging is really good an applicator that never has to much gloss or to little on it. I already have back ups for my favorites so I never run out.
I got this because everyone seems to love this line of mascaras .I do like it but and it's a big butt.It takes to much work to get the awesome results.I don't like work to get great lashes.I find that I have to wipe off the brush and use a comb to get the length without the clumps.If I don't the mascara ends up every where on the lash line my eyebrows. If you don't mind the extra steps it really can give you great lashes.
Mascara -Cover Girl - Cover Girl Professional Mascara (washable)

This is a good dependable mascara.It doesn't have crazy packaging or brush but it works.It gives the best of both world separation and length. I like this because unlike lot of the mascaras I own I never look in the mirror to find raccoon eyes . Most places I find this at 5 $ and I will for sure repurchase over and over again.
Blush -Maybelline - Dream Mousse Blush in Pink Frosting [DISCONTINUED]

I really don't like this.This is the second color I have tried from this line and I don't like either of them. This one in particular is just too pink and it makes you look like a clown even with a light hand and this one is more sparkly than the other one I have. I find that it isn't that pigmented and it takes lot to get the color on there.I find that it doesn't stay on very long and when it disappears all you are left with is shimmer all over you face that you can't buff out.

I really like this and for the price(3.50) u just can't beat it.It's a brand you must try if you haven't already. I own a few other shadow colors now and I find that they exceed the quality of the more traditional drugstore brands. I got this after my Revlon version of the color shattered and I wasn't going to spend the 9 $s to replace it .I am glad I took a chance on this, it is pigmented goes on smooth with no fallout and stay's on all day.It is a perfect highlight color on me I like it even better than the traditional champagne color everyone tells me to use. I find this a more natural color for my skin town.
