I love the versatility of this lipstick! It's very wearable for day. The color isn't anything mind blowing but I love the classic look it gives me. Definitely a favorite for this fall! It's just one those lipsticks that ties your look together when you have a scarf on, hair thrown up in a messy bun, and a hot latte in your hand! It's probably the longest lasting lipstick that i own.
It doesn't provide my skin with very much coverage. I'm not sure what purpose this powder serves for me lol but I do find it leaves my skin feeling ultra smooth. The lady told me to apply it with a damp sponge for more coverage but I have yet to try that. I just quickly put this on when I'm not in the mood to wear foundation. It does feel lightweight and it lasts all day

This lipstick is so gorgeous! Normally, I opt for pink lipsticks or peachy nudes. It never crossed my mind to try brown so I kept putting it off. I finally purchased it the other day at Rite Aid and I'm in love! I don't really have any color in collection close to it. I think it's perfect for fall and really suits my medium skin tone. This will be my new everyday lipstick!
I love this color! Probably one of my drugstore favorites. The color is so flattering on my lips. Usually light pink lipsticks don't look so great on me because of the pigmentation of my lips. However, I find this to be a really nice nude pink. It was sold out at my Target for the longest time but I was able to finally get my hands on it. Lost a lippy because after about half and hour, I started to see the emphasis on my dry and cracked appearance of my lips. I just wish it was a little creamier and longer lasting.
This was recommended to me by the guy at the MAC counter after I asked him to compare the powders to me. He said that this is made more for those who have dry skin. I'm so happy I got this because I was looking for something to wear during the summer that provided enough coverage but didn't feel as heavy on my face as a liquid foundation. Normally powders I've used are very matte and emphasizes the dry patches on my face. This is the first powder product I have used that does not do that. The only downside is that I haven't had this for long and I can already see the dent in the product even after using it sparingly. Also, it lasts me for about four or five hours.
Lipstick -Yves Saint Laurent - Rouge Volupte #26 Tender Peach

This is a gorgeous nude peach color. It would universally flattering on all complexions. The formula is very creamy and it feels very natural on the lips. The staying power is wonderful as long as I don't eat or drink.
I agree with others below saying that it's streaky. Although it is creamy, it feels like oil on my lips. The lasting power isn't that strong and for a lipgloss, it enhances the appearance of lines on my lips :( however, I give it three stars because the color is just gorgeous - I just wish it had translated as well on my lips!
I bought this mascara thinking that it would give my lashes a lot of volume. It actually doesn't do much for my lashes because it still sticks straight out. The wand is shaped like a dna helicase but I find the application very awkward. Very disappointing especially for the price I paid.
This mascara didn't work for me. It actually didn't give me any sort of volume. The formula is too wet and it clumps my lashes. I was really excited because I heard reviews comparing it to the YSL mascara but it was rather disappointing. However I give two stars because it works really well when coated with with CG lashblast.
This is a lovely pink blush. It's very pigmented and gives me a very natural looking flush. I just wish it showed up on my skin more. It can get powdery but for $3 it's pretty cheap. Overall I'm satisfied with the quality and the price :)
Before I purchased UD Naked - I bought this palette and figured it would be a good substitute. I'm obssesed with Lap Dance - it has to be my most used shadow in the palette and my all time favorite taupe color. And the rest of the colors are really gorgeous and easy to blend as well. I gave it four stars because it can get a little powdery. I do recommend this palette for those who feel guilty making the investment in UD Naked.
I bought this in Natural because I was really bummed that they ran out of Coral :( To my surprise, I was really impressed with this product! The color, like its name, is very natural on my lips. It's a light nude pink color. It lasts me all day. I would repurchase this along with the other colors E.L.F has. The only reason why I gave it 4 stars is because the packaging sucks. It was really flimsy and cheap. But hey for 3 dollars! I can't complain and the amazing product inside compensates for it.
This is probably one of the most raved about mascaras. I don't know, I guess it just doesn't do anything for my lashes at all. It still appears straight and not volumized. Maybe it's just me because from the pictures above, the lashes look amazing. I find the large, plastic bristles really irritating to my eyes upon application. I was expecting a lot from this mascara but it let me down :(
Lip Gloss -L'Oreal - Infallible plumping gloss in Plumped Tawny

I love this lipgloss! I love how it smells and the tingling sensation it gives after use. However, after a few uses the tingly feeling goes away. It doesn't last long as I do have to reapply after eating. The downside to this lipgloss is that it does not look good on me alone. It makes me look like I have a very unflattering fat lip. I don't see much of the plump in the lipgloss. Over a lipstick (Revlon Soft Nude and MAC Lady Gaga II), it looks amazing though!
After many attempts at finding great liquid liners, I find myself constantly going back to this one. I find that most liquid liners doesn't go on smoothly but rather has a patchy appearance. This goes on very nice and for 1.99, you can't go wrong!
