This is a weird product. It provides zero coverage on face but has a silky and matte texture which I love on my skin. I think this could be a great choice if you have skin that has almost no imperfections and you're not looking for any coverage. If you need a foundation to hide blemishes, redness etc, skip this.
Just average. Does not clump my lashes and gives them volume but it does not add much length. And I don't like the brush at all. It's fine for an every day mascara but I don't hink I'll repurchase.
Lips -Milani - Lip Flash Full Coverage Shimmer Gloss Pencil in 02 News Flash

I'm in love with Milani Lip Flashes (I own 5 shades), and News Flash was the one I was most excited to try on. It's a deep plum with glitter and I like the color, but unlike other Lip Flashes, this one is really hard to apply. Since the color is dark, you have to be really careful and it turns out really patchy if you don't apply it properly. Love the color but it's kind of high maintenance. And the staying power is only two hours or so, reapplying turns out to be a challenge if you're in a hurry. Not my favorite Lip Flash...
I love that this is creamy and moisturizing, yet gives a bold and opaque color. It is a blue toned pink with violet/blue sparkles and looks awesome once you put it on. The only downside is that it doesn't last long, I have to reapply it every two hours or so, but overall I love it!
I'm using the "citrus" color which is a mauvey champagne right now as a highlighter. It gives a natural glow instead of turning my face into a glitter bomb and just a pearl size drop is enough for each cheek. I will try the other colors as you can't beat the price of this product. Recommended if you want to add a highlighter to your makeup routine without spending tons.
I love the smell of this scrub (which can be disturbing if you are sensitive to fragrance in skincare), and it leaves my face really soft after using this. But, the grains in it are too big and I feel that they are scratching my face every time I use it. Needless to say I will not be repurchasing.
Deodorants -Secret - Scent Expressions Va Va Vanilla Invisible Solid

This is the worst deodorant I've ever used! Smells really nasty and never stopped me from sweating, I was actually not expecting it to but it could have at least masked the odor which it did not. Leaves white marks on everything I wear, does not do anything and smells terrible. Do not buy ever!
Not the best stippling brush out there but for the price, it does its job nicely. I use it to apply liquid foundation and I found that it gives a more natural finish compared to regular foundation brushes. I don't think it will give good results with powder products though, I never tried but I guess it is more suitable for liquid products.

Love this! I suffered from oily lids for too long, no eyeshadow would stay on for even 3-4 hours no matter how good and expensive they are. I recently tried shadow insurance and now my makeup stays on for 12 hours only with minor fading. Definitely recommended if you have oily lids.
Lips -Milani - Lip Flash Full Coverage Shimmer Gloss Pencil in 05 Hot Flash

For the first time in my life, I rocked a loud red lip confidently thanks to this pencil. Almost all reds turn magenta on me, and usually I find it hard to apply red lipstick without smudging the color everywhere. This product is like a dream, glossy like a lipgloss but really opaque like a lipstick. The texture is soft and easy to apply. And the color stays as a true metallic red instead of turning pink. I think this will be my HG red lip. The best thing is, I got it from clearance paying only $1.6 !
I absolutely hate floral scents but recently I tried this and was surprised that I like it. Wouldn't repurchase but you can give it a chance if you like flowery scents that does not give you a headache.
Love it! Great color payoff, stays on for the whole day with the help of a primer and dirt cheap. I heard that it dries up very quickly, so if it happens I will definitely try another colors from Elf.
Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand - Bellaboo-Gorgeous Skin Moisturise Dew

I started using this in the summer and loved it. It's lightweight and does not make me oily at all. Now as the weather gets colder, unfortunately this is not moisturizing enough for me (and it's the first time i've formed that sentence ever, since i have really oily skin) and my skin started flaking. Great moisturizer for oily skin, but not effective in the winter.
This is one of the best foundations I've ever used! I have problematic, oily skin that needs coverage and Whipped Creme is one of the very few foundations that stays on my face shine free for a long time, has a great coverage and matches my skin tone. I love the texture, the jar, everything. Currently my HG foundation until I find a better one.
I got a sample of this concealer and after the first use, I was very very impressed. It has great coverage and does not cake up under foundation. I did not use it under my eyes but covered my blemishes before putting on my foundation and it made a huge difference. It also has great staying power so as soon as I'm out of my sample, I'm ordering it full size. It is pretty pricey but a little goes a long way, I've been using my sample for about two weeks and I still have some left.
