Although I bought this to be a smokey eye base, I somewhat regret it. If you have Blacktrack fluidline, you really dont need this. Its the only PP I dont touch as much bc I dont like the idea of it having a strong blue base to it. Its not straight black, but has a undertone of blue. Dont get me wrong, this is nice for a smokey eye, but Id rather use my blacktrack. This is also on the drier side and working fast with it is a must! There are other cheap alternatives out there for this, reason why I dont see it as a must have PP from MAC. Ive had mine for maybe a year, barely touched it, and its already dried. Ehhh, waste of money but Im trying to use it up so I dont feel bad.
OMG these blushes are amazing and definately an understated blush IMO. I got one in a kit I purchased at Ulta and its like a hot pink blush but when applies, it is the perfect shade of pink! If i didnt have so many blushes, i would definately look into this one! Dare I say its better than NARS =xxxx

Looove this brush! Nice for foundation, cream blushes, highliighting, and BLENDING! It does an awesome job of that. I think this brush is worth the investment and it hasnt shed on me yet! Ive had mine for 3 years and its still going strong. Its super soft, and gives the lightest touch on your face. If there is one face brush you are thinking of getting, i think this brush does any job on your face perfectly :)
This is a very nice and inexpensive lip gloss that has very awesome pigmentation! This color is such a nice coral, you can also wear it on its own! Perfect spring/summer color for sure :) Love how nicely it applies and isnt sticky at all

Im still on the fence with this product which I bought in that mini 10 dollar set from Sephora. I think its too glittery for my taste and i would never wear it by itself. I do like to layer a champaigne eyeshadow over it (like UD Sin or Stila Kitten e/s). It works okay for that. Overall, I dont think i would buy a full size of this bc the small pot will do me just fine.
I was bummed when I missed out on this lipstick in the Liberty of London collection. BUT I was excited when I bought the last one at my local CCO (wooot wooot). ALthough I was really stoked, I was also kinda disappointed. Im NC30-35 and this color just doesnt look right on me =/ I think its like too orange? Not much of a nude? IDKK BUT I use a more neutral/nude lipgloss to balance it out and its okay! The formula on this one is a little drying and i find it doesnt stay on as long as the others. Overall, I wouldnt repurchase a backup if I came across one, but on other skintones, it looks great!
I love this lipstick and it is BY FAR the most expensive I have purchased. The color and pigmentation on this lipstick is amazing and it glides on so effortlessly. I picked this color out bc I knew it would go with basically anything! If I had the extra cash, I would so pick out a few colors. If you have the moolah to spend and you want a really high end lipppy, this is definately it! I also love the vanilla smell than the MAC ones! Im also scared to use this often cuz it might get wasted faster hahhaha. But as far as staying power, its pretty amazing! i find i dont have to reapply as often and it doesnt dry out my lips! Ohhh and may I say that the lovely white packaging with the gold is sooo beautiful! I get loooks everytime I pop this bad boy ouut! I would also recommend people buy it cuz soon they are changing the packaging to a brown color >.< but anywaaays, I looooove this :))

These are the only strips I use to take out the ugly blackheads on my nose! It hurts but heyyy, its all to look our best right? You dont see a lot of these out in the market anymore and this is the only brand i get. I like it :)
Ahhh, this lipgloss brings back memories of high school for me! I love using this gloss to tone down a lipstick or pair it with a nude color. It gives the perfect amount of color without being sticky. And who cant resist the coffee smell?!?!? hahhaha Im truly a coffee addict! Its dirt dirt cheap and you can find it mostly anywhere. I found mine at Wal mart. Definately something i use when i put makeup on!

Such a pretty mint color without breaking your wallet! It becomes really opaque with two coats! Formula dries pretty quick, but I just had a little trouble applying it cuz a lot runs down from the way the brush is designed! I love this line none the less and will repurchase more!
Although this stuff is pricey, it works wonders! I put this in while my hair was wet and braided sections soo that in a few hours i can have nice wavey beach hair. This stuff delivered and my hair held the wave and look natural. not crunchy at all! I love the way it smells and its not sticky. dont put too much on cuz its pretty thick! Love enjoy<333
I bought this in one of those sets from the CCO and im super upset with this mascara! It doesnt even scream high end to me! The formula is TOO wet and it gives me spider lashes with clumps! No matter what I do, if i use it by itself orr layered with another mascara, it looks like crap! Drugstore mascaras work sooo much better than this! I think they should just dc this mascara cuz its just horrible!!!! I can never get it looking right n now its in the back of my collection!
Although I love Elf, the lashes were just a bit below an OK. They were pretty flimsy and didnt have that curved shape when you apply it to your eyes. I found this annoying and hard to work with. Even when i started bending it a few times, it stays straight. The final outcome is great for it being a dollar but it was a hassle getting it to look right. Id rather spend a little more and get great quality ones that I can work with better.
UGH returned this after the second day! It did nothing for my makeup and felt greasy on my face! I ended up oilier throughout the day than normal. EWWWWW. I returned it for Laura Mercier Oil free primer which works 10 times better! Sorry Sephora this is a fail!

Very pretty in the pan, but super sheeer! I mostly use this to enhance my pink blushes. I cant use it by itself cuz I can barely see it and I dont want to pack it on! I love it on top of MAC Well dressed blush!
