Lip Gloss -Maybelline - Color Sensational Lip Gloss in Coral Gleam

In the tube, this color looks awesome! Especially for the current coral lip trend. To me it is disappointing. It is very sheer, not quite clear, but somewhat of a nude lip. I was wanting a Coral lip, and that isn't what I got.
Blush -Wet 'n' Wild - Silk Finish Blush - Mellow Wine 833D

Terrific Blush! Very pigmented, just blend out well! Doesn't have shimmer, and gives a beautiful flush. Looks great with my NC44 skintone. Ladies, check out these blushes at Rite Aid. They are on clearance there for 75% off. I only paid 74 cents for this blush! It is well worth it.

Terrific Blush! Very pigmented, just blend out well! Not too much shimmer, just enough. Looks great with my NC44 skintone. Ladies, check out these blushes at Rite Aid. They are on clearance there for 75% off. I only paid 74 cents for this blush! It is well worth it.
First of all, who really needs shimmer in their foundation? I should have ready the reviews on this before deciding to try it. The color selection is AWFUL for women of color. Revlon should have done a better job on this one.
I was so excited to see this product on Temptalia, before the collection came out. I had seen reviews about the product online saying that it wasn't very pigmented, but I still wanted to give it a try. There are three shades (white, pink, and green) in a beautiful flower pattern. It has 8 grams of product, which is a very good amount. The container is a little bit larger than the size of a Mac Mineralized Eye Shadow. The pigmentation on the pink and green is awful. It is a VERY light wash of color for you lids. I had to just keep adding tons and tons of product to make it slightly noticable, even with using a primer. This was a TOTAL waste of $19.50, but I will be returning this ASAP. My advice is not to get this product at all, you will be disappointed. If you like really faint colors, you might want to give it a try.
I really like this blush. Don't love, but I like. I am a NC45, and it looks great on my skintone. I just recently purchased this blush in a swap, I already have Eversun from this collection, and I LOVE it. The only drawback on On A Mission is that it wasn't pigmented enough for me. I had to really get my brush in it, swiping several times to get the color amount that I wanted. I usually never have to do this for MAC blushes. Other reviews were saying how great the pigmentation was, but mine wasn't like that at all, oh well. And I love the packaging. :)
Very beautiful color in the pot, but its just not pigmented enough. It is slightly buildable on my skintone, but then with enough color showing, it gets too powdery looking. Not really a mauve color, more of a dusty rose color. To get this color to work, I had to use it over a creme blush. That is why this only gets a 2 rating for me. This might be better for fair women. WOC stay away, and don't waste your money.
I need to get more of these GREAT blushes. I currently only own Terra Cotta, and it cost me $2. These are nicely pigmented and last just like my Mac blushes. They are VERY comparible to MAC. I need to find more ASAP, especially the cream.
This is a terrific product! Great color payoff and pigmentation. Bronze/coppery color that would be great for a summery or fall look. If you see these at your local drug store, pick it up! I think this color would look so great on darker skin tones!
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Stylish Smokes in Emerald Smokes

I completely agree with ALIGIRL'S review about this product. Terrific MAC dupes are in this quad, except for a really cheap price! I am very pleased with the texture and pigmentation of these eyeshadows. Maybelline is really stepping up their game in all of their products lately.
At the moment this is my favorite mascara! It does an EXCELLENT job at lengthing the lashes. I don't understand the low ratings on this product. Great product, just love it :)
Great product. Received this in a swap and I am so glad I did! This looks wonderful on my NC45 skintone. Very natural looking, but with just the right amount of pigmentation! This looks great for work/school, or any everyday look!
First words.... I wish I would have checked out the reviews before purchasing this product. It was on sale at my local grocery store for $4.89, and then I had a $1.00 coupon. I only paid $3.89 for this quad, so to sum it up, you sometimes get what you pay for. The pigmentation in this quad is awful. L'Oreal really needs to get these OFF the shelves and go back to the drawing board. I had to use so much product to get a descent amount of color to show on my eyes, and I already primed my eye with UDPP. With all that product and work, I was left with a very neutral eye, that would be appropriate for work, or everyday, but I had to use an insane amount of product. I was disappointed to say the least. This has been my only L'oreal eyeshadow purchase, (besides HIP), and L'oreal really needs to step up their game. I would have been very mad if I would have paid regular price for this. I have much better colors in L.A. Colors eyeshadow palettes that only cost a buck. Come on L'Oreal, do better.
This eyeshadow is just gorgeous! 4 Great colors for such a low price, especially if you get on sale plus a coupon like me! Some of these colors are just great dupes fo MAC. All the colors are highly pigmented and have great color payoff! Using an eyeshadow base will always make these colors pop! The only reason I took a lippie off is because of the highlight color in the quad. It is so shimmery, some people like all that shimmer on their brow bone, not me!! That color can get some use on the lid though! Thanks Maybelline for another great quad!!
Pressed Powders -MAC - Select Sheer Pressed Powder

Great pressed powder! Probably one of the better ones I have tried. I have repurchased this probably about 2 times. I love it, but I think I am just moving on to MSF Natural. It gives a better finished look to me :)
