Primer/ Corrector -L'Oreal - Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base

I got this because I had a coupon for it from Allure Magazine, and heard rave reviews from YouTube beauty girls, so I picked it up expecting it to be amazing. First of, you don't get a lot of product for your money. I've had this for less than a month and don't use it every day and I'm almost out. Second of, I was expecting it to make my foundation last all day like Rimmel Fix and Perfect, but it did not. It did not improve my skin tone, it made it look more shiny. This isn't almost a primer, it's more like a moisturizer. It did make my skin softer, but I was not looking for that in this product. This is not a good primer at all. Try Rimmel Fix and Perfect if you are looking for a good drugstore primer.
I am very impressed with this mascara! For starters, I had to wait to get it because my Wal-Mart was sold out for a while, so that typically means that it is a good product that people are buying. You can't beat the price. And it lengthens and gives a decent amount of volume. I find after using this, my lashes look very similar to if I would have used Illegal Length. It did not clump much, and I have no problem with staying power. Great inexpensive mascara!! Get it!

I used to use this when I first was wearing makeup because it was cheap and I fell for the "Favorite mascara of makeup artists gimic" but it went horribly wrong. I really like the cute green and pink packaging, that is about the only positive thing I can say about this product, and that the waterproof version will stay on through pool and band camp. It is really sticky, it makes me look like I have 5 giant eyelashes from all the clumping, it does not give any volume, it runs, it does not lengthen, it bascially is like putting liquid eyeliner on your eyelashes. Spend a few more dollars and get a good drugstore mascara such as Lashblast, Full n Soft, Falsies, Colossal, Illegal Length...even the dollar ones from ELF and NYC are better. Stay away from this mascara. It stinks.
This is such a pretty lipstick! it is a very natural rose color which is not overbearing at all but very pretty to brighten up your face in the daytime. It is really creamy, didn't dry out my lips, it smells really nice (it reminds me of lemon coffee cake) And the packaging is really cute (I know it's for Kate Moss, but the Kate reminds me of Kate Middleton and I think that I'm wearing something that a royal might wear when I wear this lipstick...haha I'm silly I know). I really love this lipstick. Check it out!
Being a bigger gal (I wear a 16 in dresses and jeans) who also likes to dress more conservative, I really do not find a lot of clothing things here that fit me well. If you are smaller, the clothing is very cute and trendy for a good price. On the other hand, the jewlery is AMAZING. it is really inexpensive, but very good quality for costume jewlery and it is really unique and beautiful. The Love and Beauty line is also very good, its hit or miss but some of the things are very good quality. I've also purchased underwear from here which was very good quality and cute. The shoes also seem nice, but I have not tried it.
I'm new to fragrances, and I got a sample set of VS fragrances to try. This is the one that stood out to me the most. It is very light and clean, it reminds me of kind of a clean linen smell with some fruity undertones. It is very girly and good for the daytime. I really love it, so I purchased the bigger size. My only complaint is that the staying power could be better. But I'd recommend smelling this next time you stop at Victoria's Secret.
I had high hopes for this mascara, but I really did not like it. I felt like it was very wet, clumpy, and I had some flaking with it. It did not agree with my eyelashes, and I did not get the look I was desiring. I don't reccommend it.

I have combination/dry skin, and I put this product to the ultimate test when I wore it under my foundation for prom. It was about 80 degrees in the building and with dancing, EVERYONE was sweating, oily, and shiny. My face stayed matte the entire night, and I did not reapply anything and I did not have on a lot of powder. This product is wonderful. I highly recommend it if you have my type of skin.
I love this blush color! It gives me a very neutral peachy glow which is just enough for the daytime. (I have golden, light-tan skin) It is very pigmented also. The quality of the product is excellent. Now, I really do not like the packaging. It's hard to open and it's small, which I know it's small because it is a dollar, but I would love to pay more for a bigger version of this because it is so nice. I would absolutely reccomend this color though!
I think that this mascara does a great job of lengthening. It is a more wet formula if you prefer that, it does not clump, and it has a very nice, easy to use smaller brush. My only problem is that the staying power for the non-waterproof version is not good. With a lot of mascaras, I'll still see it on at the end of the day but this one does not stay on alone. Normally I will use a waterproof mascara on top and it would improve the staying power. I haven't tried the waterproof version, so that one might be better. But this is a great mascara if you are looking for some length.
I got this mascara expecting it to be like Falsies or Lashblast and give me really dramatic, big lashes, and I don't think it followed up to that expectation. It is a pretty good mascara, it has good staying power, and it didn't really clump for me. It flaked some for me, but it wasn't very bad. I don't like this as a stand-alone mascara because it does not give dramatic results, if you are looking for them, but it is very buildable with other mascaras.
I think that this is a pretty nice volume mascara. It is a more dry formula, so if that does not work well with your type of lashes, I'd stay away. It left some flaking, but it did not clump. I think this mascara is a little hard to find these days because I bought mine at Big Lots and haven't seen it since in the drugstores in my area. But this one is good. It reminds me some of L'Oreal Voluminous.
These take me back to 8th grade when I first started wearing makeup. I would wear just eyeliner, mascara,powder, and lip smackers. I think they are a decent eyeliner-pigmented, smooth, easy to sharpen, and a nice variety of color selection, and the staying power is ok, but I wouldn't reccomend it as a high-intensity stay-on product. I remember in high school this would stay on through PE and marching band. I really loved the Mink Brown shade in high school. It was dark but not as harsh as black for every day. I'd say give these a shot.
The lip balm quality is very nice. It is creamy and not drying and moisturizing. I have Cherry Tart and Pink Punch. They smell very delicious, like sour fruity candy. The only complaint I have is that I have is that I normally want to slather on a lip balm, and if I do that these colors come off as crazy bright on me, which I do not like for an everyday product.

I've used this eyelash curler for awhile, and it got the job done nicely, but the pad falls out very easily, which I find very annoying. I ended up just buying a Revlon one because I kept having to replace mine. It is an overall good product that will curl your lashes well for a good price
