If I were ever to only have one eye brush to take with me anywhere, it'd definitely be the 217! It can pack on colour, blend, ANYTHING. And it's so soft and fluffy, as opposed to some brushes that are scratchy. I would totally repurchase if I ever need to.
I LOVE Up The Amp! It's such a gorgeous colour on me (NC35)! It's a great colour that anyone can wear anyday, and depending on the method of application, it can be a great everyday lipstick! Will definitely repurchase when I run out.
Lip Treatments -MAC - Lip Conditioner Stick SPF 15

The lip conditioner smelled pretty nice in the tube, but when applied on the lips, there's a weird taste if I happen to get any in my mouth. The product itself isn't anything that exciting; it's just like lip balm. Doesn't do anything AMAZING. A huge thing that bothered me was the packaging. The plastic tube just felt really cheap, and for the amount I'm paying for lip balm, I wanted a nice sturdy tube. On the whole, I would not repurchase, because I can get better lip balms for a way cheaper cost.
I got a free deluxe sample from Sephora with my points. It's a very nice mid-tone pink. Very girly, very doll-like. I already own the original Benetint, so this may sound like a bit of a comparison. The formula for Posietint is definitely thicker than Benetint. Posietint feels almost gel-like, whereas Benetint is very liquid and runny. Posietint shows up quite well with a second coat. Pigmentation is quite nice, and I like the gel consistency moreso than the liquid consistency of the Benetint. Packaging for both is the same, with a brush applicator, which I find a bit gross at times. When I use the brush on my cheek, it has been on my lips, and vice versa. And of course, when I dip it back into the bottle, everything gets contaminated...but that's just me. However, I would shell out the $35CND to buy this. It's a very lovely shade on my NC35 skin, and the pigmentation is far superior than the Benetint.
I love this blush! You only need the tiniest amount and it gives you a really gorgeous "I've just been out in the cold" flush! I apply it lightly with my 187 over the apples of my cheeks, and then use a blush brush to blend it all out. Would buy again and again (if I ever run out, that is)!
Eye Primer -BeneFit Cosmetics - F.Y. Eye [DISCONTINUED]

I did not like this product at all. When I first started wearing eye shadow, I bought this hoping that it could stop my creases. However, my shadow creased with this too. As well, it irritates my lids, and the little jar it comes in isn't very sanitary either. Definitely will not buy again, especially since I've discovered UDPP.
I quite liked the look that this mascara gave me. However, even the waterproof version smudged on my within a couple of hours. Will not be repurchasing, because there are cheaper and better mascaras.
I LOVE MAC SHADOWS! The pigmentation is wonderful and they go on so smooth and buttery. MAC also has a huge colour selection. And the flip top of these shadows make it that much better.
This is a very sweet smell. It's quite strong, so I advise not to spray too much on or it could be too much. But it smells quite amazing.
This was the first perfume I ever bought. It smells so good and just crisp and fresh and clean.
I really like this scent. It's quite sophisticated...but it's more of an evening/winter smell rather than a summer scent.
The gel liner really is long-wearing and smudgeproof, even on my oily lids. It goes on like a dream, espcially with the SH Ultra Fine Liner Brush from BB. The consistency is very good too. Not thick and drying, but not thin and watery as well. It's just right.
Mascara -Shiseido - The Makeup Mascara Base [DISCONTINUED]

I love this mascara base. It makes any mascara work like magic. As well, even with just this on, I can see how it makes my lashes more volumized and longer. And it increases the staying power of any mascara too.
Leaves my oily face matte and fresh! The Blot Powder is finely milled and keeps me matte for a really long time. Good for those days where I just put on some concealer and need to set it with some powder to get out of the house.
The Colorstay Eyeliner is the best pencil liner I've used. It does not smudge at all, even on my oily eyelids. But of course, I prep my lids with UDPP before putting even just eyeliner on. It goes on very smooth and creamy, and I just love how the sharpener is included on the end.
