This is a very beautiful yet potent lip color. It is longlasting and when it finally wears off after eating or drinking, it leaves behind a beautiful true to color stain. The package is really nice! It has a bronze cap with a color swatch at the bottom. This is part of the Queen Collection geared towards WOC, but anyone can rock this! I am N15 for reference. I just wish the Queen Collection would be easier to find. :(
This is a really pretty sheer lilac color with silver microglitter. It applies smoothly and evenly on the nail. 2-3 coats will make this color opague. Really pretty and girly. :)) Perfect for Spring time.

This is a really nice product. It is minty and has a nice longlasting cooling effect on the lips. I really didn't notice a plumping effect per say. I feel that any glossy product makes the lips appear bigger. Either way, the product was nicely pigmented and stayed put for longer than a normal lipgloss.

I've only used one other eyelash curler, so I wouldn't call myself an expert in them. I have long eyelashes with a natural curl in them already. So this product only enhances what I already have. It works just fine. Doesn't pinch or break off any of my lashes and the pad stays in place. So far, so good. :)

Very moist and soft towelettes. Effective in removing heavy duty full coverage makeup. It leaves the skin feeling soft and smooth. I don't feel guilty if I fall asleep afterwards, only to wake up hours later to cleanse my skin properly. No breakouts, no irritations. Only downside is that the scent can be overwhelming at times.

I enjoy the texturized cloth. It aides in removing full coverage foundation. I am able to remove everything except mascara. TBH, I haven't tried. I rather not tug at my eye area. It does remove eyeshadow, even longwearing cream eyeshadows and eyeliner with ease. The scent is not overwhelming and would repurchase again.
This is a perfect color for us pale skinned girls. I am N15 for reference. This color looks natural and gives a healthy look to the skin. I apply it with ELF's flat top powder brush. It blends easily and buildable in color. It dries to a powder finish and is longwearing. Great for everyday wear.
This is a really pretty pink blush. It gives me a nice healthy, flushed cheek. It is buildable and blendable. Not too chaulky, which is really nice. I am really surprised. Don't be afraid by the color in the pan!
Lip Liners -Jordana - Easyliner for Lips in Rock n' Rose

I own several of these lipliners. They all work wonderfully. I am not a lipliner snob, so these work just fine. Jordana has a decent array of colors to get the job done. I wouldn't call these the creamiest lipliners, hence taking off one lippy. I get around this by applying lip balm first before any other lip products.
Eyeliner -Jordana - Easyliner for Eyes (Retractable Pencil)

I own several of these eyeliners. They are very easy to use and blend out with an angled brush - creating a wing. I use it on the upper lash line only for daily wear. The colors denim, smokey and eggplant are really nice. :) I gave it 3 lippies because they are not the most pigmented and can crease, smudge if worn too heavily on the upper and lower lash lines.

This product is amazing! It smells great without it being overpowering and it leaves your lips feeling soft, smooth and moisturized. I have been wearing this lip balm underneath all my lip products. My lips are usually pretty dry due to certain lipsticks, but this has helped tremendously!
I've used this for the past two weeks after using my skin resurfacing pads with alpha hydroxy. The combination is amazing! It leaves my skin soft, smooth and glowing - more youthful. I highly recommend the skincare lines from Beauticontrol. Find your nearest representative!
One capsule is sufficient for my face and neck. It dries down to a soft, powdery finish. It leaves my skin feeling amazing! So far, so good and I will be awaiting and updating its long-term effects.
This is a super pretty Tiffany Blue color! It is long lasting, doesn't chip or flake. It is true to color and quite eye catching. Love it.
This foundation applies like a dream! It is smooth, silky and looks flawless. It minimizes pores and has great coverage. Only downside is that within 4 hours I was extremely shiney in my T-Zone. :((
