this is an ok product. it does stay and not fade when i go out for the night. the black color is black enough when applied properly. but i just dont like the applicator. the tip of mine has already threaded off a bit even though ive used it about three times. and like others said, its hard to control, my lines never end up perfect and i have a steady hand. also have to continuously dip the applicator in the pot, i cant even swipe it across my whole eye, i have to dip it around three times to make it the intensity and shape i want. the price for it isnt cheap either, i think i paid about 10 bucks. i'll use it up since it isnt a terrible product, but i wouldnt buy it again.
i like the smell and the slight soothing menthol like feeling to this balm; however i feel like it dries out my lips even more. i also feel like i am applying this over and over again and it feels like i didnt put anything on. not worth it.

very impressive product. i used this at seven in the morning and my eyes didnt crease at all. i checked my lids right after i took my makeup off which was around midnight. that is spectacular. the packaging is annoying but i will continue to purchase because of the amazing work it performed for my makeup.
i really like this product. i previously stayed away from cream blushes because i have skin that breakouts out easily, but after using bobbi browns pot rouges ive fallen in love with them. that being said, this is a good product with a decent staying power. it is a gorgeous darkish pink color in the pot. it is very pigmented, i dont use much and it brings life to my face. on my face it shows up as a fleshy pinky color, like a warmed flush. i dont use my fingers, i use a foundation brush to apply where i want the color to show up then buff it in with a duo fibre brush. the only thing i think could be different is the formula, its a bit harder to blend it into the skin compared to the bobbi brown pot rouges which is why i took one lippy off.
this does give volume, and it does make your lashes show up, but it clumps like crazy and after the end of the day i would always have flakes of the product under my eyes. it also is very messy when applying, i kept smudging the product on my face. not worth it to me.

this is just an ok product. it gets my makeup off but i have to work at it for a long time to get my mascara completely off. i was hoping for a better performance. i wouldnt buy again, since its expensive and doesnt do a superb job.

when i use powders, it is usually to control shiny spots on my face, i dont use it to set anything since i dont wear foundation of any sort. i really like this product for the way i use it. it keeps my face shine free all day, doesnt have an odor, and best of all, it blends in with my face so it looks like im wearing nothing.
i like this. its crisp and clean and not flowery, which is what i like. its not the best scent ive come across but i like it enough to own it. it lingers all day and it doesnt have a nauseating effect at all.
i really like this scent. but its very potent so overdoing it will probably make you ill. i got a little spray happy at ulta with this since i havent seen it in a few years and i ended up overdoing it and giving myself a headache all day. i actually prefer this scent on men since i had a friend in highschool who wore this and it was, without a doubt, alluring on him.
my mom gave me this a long time ago and its the best chapstick ive ever used. i like it more than any other chapstick i own. its extremely moisturizing, goes on so smoothly, and so cheap! i think they sell these for less than a dollar. the only thing i dont really care for is the smell of this product. very lipsticky. but i can deal with it.
very good palette. the colors are pigmented and last all day and i really like the colors given since they can give neutral looks or a more dramatic look. i actually like the black shadow, lucifer, better than MAC's carbon. its smoother and blends easier. very satisfied with this palette.

Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero

i really like this. i thought this product wasnt going to be as good as everyone was saying but i was pleasantly surprised. its very creamy but not so much where its unbearable to work with. its very black, and it actually does what it says, it stays on all day. its the first pencil liner i have ever used that doesnt need to be touched up. amazing. i hate the pricetag on this, but nevertheless i will still repurchase.
this is usually always in my shower. it cleans well, doesnt strip my skin of moisture, and it gives my skin a nice, very subtle shimmer. you cant see the shimmers unless you are in the sun. it also has a slightly sweet scent to it which i cant put my finger on what it smells like, but whatever the scent is, it doesnt linger too long on me. i love using this in the summer, i always get compliments on my skin when in the sun after using this. in the winter this helps keep my skin from overdrying. i dont like to use this product as a replacement for lotion and shaving cream. i still use lotion especially in the winter.
i like this palette. the more fun colors are vibrant and the neutral colors are pigmented. they all last long. my least favorite of the colors given is Snatch because there are glitter particles in it so i have to be cautious when using it. i've used Snatch three times and found a couple glitter particles on my face each time, which is why i took one lippy off. other than that this is a good palette, since it comes with a UDPP and 24/7 liner. i really like the colors given.
