Eyeliner -Rimmel - Exaggerate Full Colour Eye Definer - Noir

Been looking for a dupe for mac's smolder eyeliner? This is it. I love this eyeliner when i want that smokey smudgy look. This is great especially for the waterline. It makes tightlining super easy. Great black color. The blackest ive come accross in a while. This liner has a screw sharpener built in and a smudger tip. Lasts quite a while on the waterline, but needs to be reapplied often as eyeliner. You really need to set this with a black shadow to make it last. Packaging is nice quality and the price is right at about $4.29 at the local wally world.
I am addicted to this liner in crystal. I use this over the white pearl e/s base from nyx. I use it in the corner to add shimmer and sparkle to any look. The glitter is finely milled and lasts on my eyes all day, all night. No fallout and very easy to remove.
This is such a nice gloss. Its very long wearing, but can be very drying. The color is peacy pink, kind of sheer. I find it is best applyed over a lip primer. The color changes drastically from sheer to nicely pigmented.
Love this plumping gloss. Soft subtle babydoll pink. Feels cold upon application. Use white gloss first then the tinted, it really gives the look of soft shimmery plumped up pouty lips. Lasts a good three hours before u need to reapply. No irritating sting either. Also will freshen your breath with a minty toothpaste feel. Fresh breath and a sultry pout gals, all for a buck. Im sold!
Got this cream in a gwp. I like it. Goes on smoothly, great under concealer, does not cause milli, non greasy, absorbs quickly. Jar packaging, hate that. Decreases puffiness, nothing on my dark circles tho. All over good product but not a miracle in a jar.
I am in love with this eyeshadow. It is a nude pink with very subtle silver shimmer/sparkle. Its not glittery by any means. Goes on soft and looks great for a natural daytime look. Jazz this up over brighter colors for a soft sparkely glow. It really looks great. Not very long wearing but i just reapply once throughout the day and its fine.

My derm actually told me to stay clear from this cleasnser. Although it says it removes all makeup it leaves a chemical residue on the skin that actually seeps into the skin through your pores and causes more breakouts. Since i discontinued this and started using the cetaphil bar soap my face has significantly improved and cleared up.

This gel moisturizer is awesome. Consistentcy is very unique, almost a whipped gel. Spreads easily. Does not feel greasy, oily or tacky on my skin. Super hydrating. Can be used morning, night and even for a mask if extra moisture is needed. Great as a foundation primer as well. Friendly to all skin types, no breakouts at all. Price is steep at a whopping $46 dollar a jar. Packaging could be better, jar container so not very sanitary. Small amounts needed so i can assure alot of use, it should last a while for most. Over all one of the better moisturizers. Also helps reduce my pores and minimize redness. Works wonders on dry flakey patches, and keeps combo areas in check. I love it.
I am a mascara fanatic and anyone who follows my reviews knows that. Ive tried every brand, h/e and d/s. Including the original lash blast and lash blast length. I would like to say, i am pleasently surprised with this mascara. The packaging is very similar to the original but it is a pretty purple tube instead of that obnoxious orange one. They house the same shaped brush except the fusion brush is skinnier and more tapered off in the center. The formula in the fusion is quite different though, it is a tad thicker and seems to dry alot faster on my lashes than the two others. If you look closely you can almost see the hair like fibers through out the wand and in the actual product. Application is actually easier, less messy and great for even the smallest lashes, especially the bottom lashes. I couldnt say the same for the original lb or lb length. There is no flaking or smudging what so ever. Washes off without much effort, no coon eyes. The pigmentation in very black is amazing. Very rich black and glossy. Holds a curl fantasticly. As far as legthening, volumizing and seperating goes, is this really better than the originals? YES! After applying just one coat my lashes are very long, pumped out to the max with volume and fanned out like falsies. After two coats my eyes are almost too dramatic. This mascara has surpassed my expectations and i thought nothing could out do the original. Way to go Cover Girl. A mascara masterpiece, finally!

I like this moisturizer quite a bit. It works great on my acne prone oily combo skin. Doesnt clog pores or irritate my skin. No oily feeling or shine. I use this in the am and use my chanel or clinique at bedtime. Great packaging, it had a pump and this is super cheap.

This blush is adorable, but i think its suited more towards younger girls. The color is a pretty pink. The packaging is cute, it comes with the most adorable little brush. Ok that being said, i have used the word adorable several times for a reason. This blush looks like something my 15 year old sons girlfriend would wear. Im 37 and this blush ages me 10 years. Adorable but not a mature product.

Hi gals, I'll keep this review short and sweet. I wanted to love this but it was way to thick and cakey. The high spf burned and irritated my sensitive skin. Not a good choice for me.
Eyeliner -Tokidoki - Perfetto Eyeliner in Sabochan (black)

This liner is pretty good. The staying power is amazing and the pigmentation is a wonderful deep black. Packaging is adorable and sleek. Applicator tip smells and looks like a sharpie pen and can be tricky to apply fine or heavy lines. After practicing with this, it works really well. Price is way too steep for a pen liner, so i will not repurchase.
This primer glided on my skin so Easily and i really wanted to love it, but, instead, i HATED it with a passion. This made my face so oily and gross, then the imaginable, crazy breakouts. Ill stick to my smashbox photofinish light. It is skin friendly and never caused my skin problems.
