I actually already have thick lashes, but I've always wanted to try falsies for fun. I bought these as my practice ones and they work great! They're just as long as my natural lashes though, so it's just volume that I see. I won't be buying again because I would like to see longer lashes. But they are good for beginners ;)
Lipstick -Maybelline - Color Sensational- Make Me Pink

Yay!! I finally found my go-to lipstick! I've been looking for one that is close to my lip color but isn't too bright (for school), so I found this and am totally happy with the results!! I also love the smell, the feel, and how it doesn't make my lips look extremely dehydrated.
Eyeliner -Rimmel - Glam Eyes Professional Liquid Liner

I was a bit scared to break away from my beloved Maybelline Stiletto eye liner. But I think this product is much better! I get that nice dark look and I can make the line very thick or extremely small. This might be my new favorite :). I use eyeliner everyday (look at my username) and this liner gives me exactly the results I need. Need another reason? It's extremely cheap; Rimmel has been very good about this.
Primer/ Corrector -NYX - Studio Perfect Photo-loving Primer

To me, this is just like the Smashbox primer, but at half the cost! I bought the green primer because my skin is red all over. This paired with a foundation or concealer gives me a nice even skin tone. I also like how it feels very soft on my skin. I might try the clear one next time though.
BB Cream -Maybelline - Dream Fresh 8-in-1 BB Cream
linerfreakxx7 7/17/2012 1:48:00 AM
This is my first BB Cream. I'll admit buying my first BB Cream at a drugstore wasn't a great idea, but this works out decently. I should have been a Light/Medium, but they were out of that color, so I had to buy the Medium, which actually adapted to my skin color. It does not make me look orange or cakey and keeps my skin looking healthy. I had to take a point off for packaging because the product leaks out as soon as I open the bottle. Also, the cream takes forever to blend as it is very thick and creamy.
Yaaay! Finally my first Urban Decay Palette! Toasted, Smog, and Mildew are now my go-to colors! The colors are so beautiful and I cannot thank my friend enough for giving me this palette. I'm glad to have finally found the name for it. Excellent staying power and beautiful pigments.
It has decent coverage and I really like it as a highlighter. I have it in fair/light, which more or less fits me, I could have taken a darker one. Anyway, I've been suffering from dark circles, so this really helps with those. And it's very cheap, dare I say, the cheapest at the drugstore. $6.20 is a small price to pay for such a good concealer.
Alright, I'm redoing this comment. I totally love this! This concealer goes on best using your fingers as the texture becomes very creamy. It covers anything and everything so that my face looks totally flawless! I have yet to find another concealer that can cover my hideous pimples and red nose!! Please give this a try!! It's actually inexpensive for a high end, to me.
I got the purple/red color (I forget what the name is) and my mother and I were scared to do this because my mom didn't want me to have purple hair (haha). My natural color is brown (very dark) but I dye it reddish-brown. I used this dye over it and the color turned out so beautiful!! I love the redness it gives and the purple tint to it makes it dark so it fits nicely with my light skin. I'm going to dye my hair back to natural for senior portrait, but after that, this color will be my go-to !!! It takes forever to use all the foam, but the end result is fabulous! UPDATE: Um this stuff kind of fades really badly.
My first MAC purchase and my first high-end foundation :). So I have Dry-Combination skin and I told the sales assistant this so she picked this out (the most expensive MAC foundation at the store, of course). However, the sales assistant was very nice and taught me how to apply the foundation (yay! New application technique!). I absolutely love it! It's not as expensive as other high-end foundations and actually covers my acne without getting cakey. I bought the 1.5 (warm, I think? I thought I was cool toned), and even though the bottle looks orange, it's my perfect fit :) I'm so buying this again.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

I've heard plenty of fantastic reviews on this and they are all true!! This primer is the absolute best out there!! I'm crazy for this!! My eyeshadows really stay on all day. By the way, I've heard that eyeshadows will stay on if you wear this in the shower, so I tried it and it does!!! Wow....this even helps my greasy gel liner stay on !!!!
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express The Mega Plush
linerfreakxx7 5/19/2012 5:00:00 PM
I was in dire need of a mascara after using a horrible mascara my mom bought for three weeks. I went to a drug store and found this mascara for $5.39 and thought it was a reasonable price. By the way, I was really in the mood for maybelline as I love their mascaras. This product is excellent!! It doesn't clump my thick lashes and it doesn't irritate my eyes like others do!!! It also makes my lashes longer. All this while making my lashes soft and flexible.
I think I'm the only one who likes the brush :). This got negative reviews? How is that? The powder is amazing and doesn't cake at all. It blends nicely and stays on. This is my all time favorite foundation!! (UPDATE!! I hate the brush now! It hurts my skin :(
Hair Color -L'Oreal - Couleur Experte -hair dye / highlight
linerfreakxx7 4/28/2012 1:30:00 AM
I took one of L'Oreal's hair color quizzes and they suggested this to me. After a while of deliberating, I finally bought this in Truffle 5.1.I though this was pretty good as it did not itch my scalp as much as Féria and I only had to keep it on for fifteen minutes. And for some reason, my hair is very soft after using it. However, I didn't like the highlights much....I was looking to go to gold of soft brown highlights but it turned streaks of my hair red again (my hair was previously red). Maybe I'll try a different color next time?
Ug, my mother bought this for me and at first I liked it. Honestly, it is good for those of you who seriously need volume in your eyelashes or who love spider lashes. Although I do love that it makes my lashes sooooooo long, it is way too clumpy and wet. I have to clean the brush every time because of all the product that comes on it. I don't think I'll buy this again.
