Lipstick -Maybelline - Color Sensational Pink Me Up

This is a very lovely medium pink, great for medium skin tones. It has a smooth and rich formula and feels great on my lips. It doesn't dry out my lips and has a pretty good staying power.

This is a light pink, it's lighter than my natural lips so it's good for neutral fresh looks. This is probably more suitable for light skin tones because I find it too light for my lips on certain days. All in all it's a nice creamy lipstick. It has orangey undertones just FYI. So I decided to take this one back because it just wasn't working with my natural lip color ans skin tone. I decided to go back and get another one that better suits me.
I use to use this mascara a few years ago and decided to give it a try again a few days ago. I was not impressed at all. My mac plush lash does about the same to slightly better, in fact I use it over the L'Oreal mascara which helps a lot. I thought this would give me the somewhat "fake lash" look, but sadly it didn't. It's just regular mascara, no wow factor for me, but that's just me. I'd buy again if in need of reg. mascara. I'm glad it works for others though.
These are wonderfully pigmented and super blendable and smooth. I have Charcoal Pearl, A dark silver. It compliments my grey eyes beautifully. I loves these and, plan on getting all of the color soon! These shadows are great =)
I really like this color a lot, it's more of a medium dark chocolate brown on me. It has a nice texture and blends well. It a nice matte brown good for neutral and smokey looks. It's a nice shadow to have, it's a basic must have. NYX has many great shadows with great quality without having to pay 20 bucks for one shadow.
I thought this "deep purple" would be... well... a deep purple. It's not a dark purple, at least on my skin. It's more of a medium light purple. A totally misleading name, I still like it though. It comes out a very lovely metallic purple. I always use a primer so my shadows usually come out true, so I'm not sure if that's why others are having a problem with it staying on. I think I'm going to try and buy Eggplant and see if that's a darker purple that I was wanting. I will keep my deep purple and probably repurchase when needed.
When I bought this shade I thought it was going to be a dark metallic like green. It's not dark like I thought it would be but it's still a pretty color. The texture is nice and smooth. Even though this shade isn't what I thought it would be it certainly isn't a bad one. I'm a fan of greens and purples. I noticed some people said their shadow doesn't stay, I haven't had this problem. I use Too Faced Shadow Insurance and it does it's job for me. I don't find mine to be chalky. I agree with the other review of this being a good dupe for Mac's Humid.
I bought this shadow hoping for a nicely pigmented medium tones matte pink. I was so disappointed when I open it and I could barely even see it on my skin, it goes on so sheer, and no matter how much I tried to build it, it just wouldn't. I really thought this lovely color was going to be a winner, too bad.
I like this shadow, it's not unnecessarily your typical highlight, but I find it nice on my more natural days. It has tiny bits of shimmer in it but you can barley see that on your skin, but I find it to blend very well with the other shadow colors on my lids, it helps get rid of harsh lines when needed. It's more of a skin color type of shadow. It goes on a bit sheer. I think I'd buy it again, I also you it when I want my highlight to be more matte instead of a shimmer.
I bought this shadow online so I was thrown off considering their swatches are off a lot. I do love the color in the pot, it looks like a very beautiful turquoise shimmery color. It's total crap to me though, it comes out very crumbly and the texture is gritty. It's a lot of frost and glitter and doesn't show up very well. I was so disappointed with this shadow, I wish NYX would give realistic and true swatches. I posted photos up top so you can see what it looks like in person. It's a shame because this color could be a gorgeous one if made properly. I will never buy this one again.
I Bought this in Fair Light and is a little too light for me but that's fine, you can't tell after I put on a tinted moisturizer or foundation. I decided to try this stuff out after using every other concealer, I'm sick of using concealers that just either empathizes that I have a blemish or just covers like my tinted moisturizer. This stuff covers very well in my opinion, at least for the great price anyways ($8). Also a little dab goes a long way, which is nice. If you're medium light I'd say get the Natural Light shade, and if you're fair get the Fair Light. The only con is that this are the only colors besides the green. This is my new concealer for now, unless I find something better later on...
Mascara -Christian Dior - Diorshow Black Out Mascara

I was so excited when I bought this mascara but, sadly I was disappointed, big time. When I put it on the formula was a bit goopy but running, but i worked with it. You have to wait for your lashes to dry completely if you want to look around or finish your make up or you'll have mascara smeared on the tops and bottoms of your lids. I wanted this mascara because of all of the hype, I'm a sucker for super dark black lashes and that's what they claimed and supposedly what they used backstage lol. I learned different. This mascara just got worst and worst the more I used it, it got so clumpy and gross. Stick with the regular DiorShow....
This is my HG foundation! I love matte finishes this has great coverage, starting off as medium to full coverage if you build it. I wear this foundation when I feel the need to look my best r I'm just not feeling all that great on how I look. It makes my skin look airbrushed and healthy. I lasts a pretty good time as well and I live in a desert environment. I have normal to dry skin so I can't say I'm sure it will last as long on someone who has oily skin. I hate the prices of big names, so I'm always on the hunt for something better or equivalent that's cheaper but I love this foundation so much I'll shell out the money for it. note: you might want to wear a nice moisturizer underneath, I find this makes it blend and feel less "cakey".
Lipstick -Maybelline - Color Sensational Lipstick - 065 Hooked on Pink

The Hooked On Pink looks amazing with my skin tone, I haven't found a nice vibrant pink lipstick that I love so much! It's a very grown up pink. The lipstick is nicely pigmented and great in texture. I really love this shade and quality. I will buy again!
I went out on bought these lipsticks today and fortunately they had a buy one get one free special going on at walgreens. I bought Pink Please and Hooked On Pink. I really like the texture and feel. These are nice lipsticks in my opinion, the Pink Please is a bit lighter than my natural lip color so I use a primer underneath and looks great, it gives me a very nice neutral look. The Hooked On Pink looks amazing with my skin tone, I haven't found a nice vibrant pink lipstick that I love so much! It's a very grown up pink, which I really like! I hate spending a lot of money on lipstick because I go through it so much so this is good compared to some other "high end" brand names. They are nicely pigmented and I will be buying them again.
