this cream eyeliner is HORRIBLE!! such a waste of money! i was hoping that it would stay on and not budge but not the case at all. within an hour the top eyeliner was all smudged up to the top of my eyelid and the bottom lash line was almost all gone and settled into my under eye area. don't waste your money on this ladies, go for MAC fluidline or MAC powerpoints!
this is hands down the best eyelash curler out there!! it gives such a nice curl that holds all day. this curler actually curls the lashes and doesn't just put a dent in the lashes like cheapers eyelash curlers do. it is totally worth the price you pay!!
Moisturizers -Good Skin - clean skin oil free lotion

this is a great moisturizer especially for the price! it does a good job at keeping my oily skin under control. i dont find this moisturizer to cause breakouts on me. the only problem i do have, is that sometimes it can sting a little when i apply it, so i took a lippie off for that. i also like how this moisturizer comes out of a pump instead of putting your hands into a jar. a great find!
i can't believe this perfume is getting so many negative reviews!! i have been using this perfume ever since it first came out. I have been through so many bottles and get so many compliements on it. i have skipped around to other perfumes but i always come back to this one everytime! this perfume smells so fresh and clean to me, not old lady IMO. this perfume has a scent that can pick me up when im having a rough day.
i will have to say that out of all the cheek stains i have used, i like this one the best. yes, the color of the container is scary but it goes on a lot lighter. i like to use a sponge to apply this because i find it goes on smoother and blends into the skin better than using my fingers. i also love the way this gel smells. i would buy it again, but you get a lot of product for your money so it will be awhile.
i use to hate this blush because i was applying it heavy-handed. i was so bummed because i wanted to love it. so i threw it in with the rest of my stash let to sit, and sit and sit. then, one day i decided to try it out with a dupe of MAC's 187 brush. LOVE!!!!! its such a subtle glow that wakes up my face. i can only describe this color as not too pink and not too peach with subtle gold shimmer. so lovely..my most reached for blush now!!
i think this lipgloss is really pretty, it is a light pink color with gold flecks. it has a thicker texture and does last pretty long on the lips. this lipgloss isnt as drying as others are either, i find it makes my lips soft. i also LOVE the way this lipgloss smells. it reminds me of sweet tarts or something and always find myself smelling it. the applicator is great, it is a brush rather than a foam tip. the brush allows you to layer on the color as much as you want. i would definitely buy this again.
Concealers -Mally Beauty - Cancellation Concealer 3-piece system

i really wanted to like this concealer but i found this concealer to be really thick and cakey!! it seems creamy in the compact but doesn't turn out that way on me. it didnt blend into my skin very well at all. it settled into lines and the powder seemed really obvious on my skin. the packaging is cute but like others have said, hard to open. the brushes that come with it are of okay quality.
i like this mascara, but i have switched to hypose because i wanted fuller lashes. but fatale doesn't smudge or get flaky and holds the curls well. make sure to wipe off the excess on the brush before you apply else it will get really messy. i would suggest that you practice applying this mascara because it does require a different technique than traditional mascaras. *** UPDATE *** i was using max factor for a bit, which i do love, and i pulled this out again and now i really hate it. it really started to smudged and left me with racoon eyes..i never had this problem with this mascara before..im staying with my max factor volume!
i love this mascara!! it really gives you volume and it holds the curl nicely. i also like this mascara because it doesn't travel to my under eye area and all get smudgey. i dont find this mascara to flake either. even though it costs $24, i will definitely repurchase.
Eyeliner -MAC - Powerpoint Eyeliner Pencil in Prussian

wow, this eyeliner really does stay on! and like another reviewer said, when you first apply it you still have time to smudge it out, but once it dries it won't budge. it even stayed on my bottom lash line until i took it off at about 10:30 PM.. and i first put it on at 6AM. this is a really pretty navy shade..it looks awesome with brown eyes to make them really pop! IMO powerpoints stay on even better than their fluidlines!! i am definitely going to try some other shades.

Concealers -Philosophy - Supernatural airbrushed color correctors

this concealer is just okay IMO. you get three different colors and a pretty generous amount of each. this concealer does blend well if you have to mix the shades together. i find it settles in lines under my eyes and it disappears rather quickly even with powder. i do like the brush that it comes with and how it fits in the compact for easy travel and the mirror is a good size.
I was actually going to the store to buy a different concealer when I stumbled upon this one, and boy am I glad I did!!! This concealer is super creamy and a little bit really does go a long way! I only need three little dots on each eye area and then I just blend it in with a brush or my ring finger. This is the only concealer that I found that actually stays on all day and does NOT make my eye area all flakey. They have a lot of different shades to pick from and it blends perfectly with my skin tone. This concealer is a little expensive, but you only use a little bit so it is definitely worth it!!! I will totally buy this concealer again whenever that maybe!! 5 lippies :) EDIT: i don't use this concealer anymore, it started to get really cakey and dry under my eyes which it never did before..oh well, keep searching!!!
