Highlighters -E.L.F. - Shimmering Facial Whip in Lilac Petal
curlygirl03 7/7/2012 6:50:00 PM
Comparable to Benefit's high beam. This highlighter is pretty, good for day and night, long lasting, easily blendable, works with a multitude of skin tones, multifunctional, and only 1.00 ! I don't have anything negative to say about this highlighter. It's by far my favorite out of any one I've ever tried. I love it.
Not bad, considering the price but not great either. It did make my eye shadows appear more vibrant but didn't help with the lasting power. Might buy again if only for the crazy cheap price of 1.00.
Blush -Hard Candy - Blush Crush Baked Blush #127 Honeymoon

On my skin tone (light olive) this works as a blush when applied wet and a highlighter when applied dry. This blush is a really pretty highlighter for everday. It lasts for about 5 hours which isnt too bad, but not great. The packaging is kind of flimsy and easy to break but I can work around that. I'll buy another one when I get through this one.
Love it. Love it. Love it. This is the drugstore dupe for ysl touche eclat, and having used both I can say that I prefer the Maybelline version. It lasts all day, there's a good color selection, it's easy to blend, and the brush on the end is handy. The only thing that bothers me is that you don't get a very good amount of concealer for the price, but I would still buy it again.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

Meh. I don't understand the rave reviews, it wasn't amazing but it wasn't great. For the price it's just not worth it in my opinion. My review is only three lines because I just dont have much to say about it. It's only okay.
Bronzers -Rimmel - Natural Bronzer - 22 Sun Bronze

I didn't hate it and I didn't love it. It is a fairly cheap actually matte drugstore bronzer, but it can be a little orangy and it's not very pigmented. So I might buy it again, because it does go on very nicely with a wet brush but that's not always convenient. It's worth a try, but not the best drugstore bronzer out there.
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - Color Icon Trio - Silent Treatment

For the price this trio is amazing. Like many others what pulled me in was the eyelid color which is a beautiful neutral purpley taupe. The crease color is a matte brown with gold sparkles which looks gorgeous for smokey eye looks. The browbone color is a really pretty pale pink, which is nice for everyday. Overall I love this product, the staying power is really good but the eyeshadows are very crumbly. I took one lippie off because I've had problems with the eyelid color getting in the other two. However I'm willing to overlook that based on the awesomeness of the eyeshadow quality and wear.
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum Express The Falsies Flared

Ewww. This is probably the worst mascara Ive ever tried. Ive used it four times and each time I got gross spidery, clumpy, flaky, disgusting lashes. This is a horrible mascara. I got no volume or length either. Seriously dont buy it.
I bought this in a really pretty shimmery brown (truffle) because I thought that the brown with gold glitter would compliment my eyes. I didnt like it at all! The pencil is not smooth and it doesnt glide whatsoever. Its really horrible and such a waste of money esp. for a drugstore eyeliner. The quality and colour payoff just isnt there. Dont waste your money ladies!
I really love this blush! Its so pretty and soft. It shows up a light dewy pink on my skin. Its very light and subtle and can double as a highlighter. However it breaks really easily and I cant stand the packaging.
Having tried alot of mascaras I can say that this isnt the worst one out there, but its definitly not the best. Theres minor clumping, it doesnt really volumize or curl and it only lengthens minimally, so it doesnt live up to its claims. This mascara also flakes, its just not worth it for the price. So many better mascaras out there for less!
I love this mascara !! HG <3 It volumizes and lengthens beautifully. Im never going to stop using it ! Its relatively clump free and it makes my eyelasges look doll like :)
I love this perfume! It smells so goodabd sweet, like vanilla caramel and candy! It's one of my favorite perfumes ever. My only complaint is the staying power, ie there is none. Otherwise I wear it all thr time.
Pros; cheap, argan oil is high, no cones, mostly natural, organic, gives soft hair, grape, olive & kernel. Cons; Makes hair dry and crunchy if you put it on dry hair, bad packaging, froths of you rub it in your hands.
I personally dont understand all the bad reviews! I love this mascara and the packaging is so cute! Its pink (my favorite colour) and kind of vintage. It lengthens, volumizes and seperates. Plus you really cant beat it for the price!
