This has quickly become an HG product for me. I didn't want to love it because covergirl tests on animals, but that's another story. This mascara is perfect for very dramatic lashes without smudging and clumping.
Liquid -Annabelle - SkinTrue Natural Lightweight Makeup

Wow, this product brings me back... I remember I wasn't even into makeup when I first picked this up. I had no idea what I was doing and picked up the cheapest foundation, and this was it. Looking back I can say that the coverage was perfect for my very young skin, but it smelled unpleasant.
Eye Shadow -Annabelle - moon illusion dome eyeshadow

What a great quality eyeshadow. As per usual, this Annabelle eyeshadow is smooth and well pigmented. The eyeshadow is really great because it is an eyelook in one. With a shimmering white, a golden skintone shimmer and a black shimmer.
Eyeliner -L'Oreal - Carbon Black Lineur Intense Felt Tip Liquid Eyeliner

My favorite liquid eyeliner by far. It just makes the process so much easier and the tip allows for varying thicknesses of the lines you create.
Lipstick -MAC - Pro Longwear Lustre - Fully Charged

I really like this product. I used to have the same problems as the other reviewer. However, I found out that the key is to use less of the color. I know it doesn't look as pretty or as intense, but it stays all day. For this pro-longwear lustre, I love the color- it manages to be very bright but wearable.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner - Spandex

This is such a fun product. I really believe that you can make it look sophisticated or really glam and jewel-like. My favorite part is the thin brush, capable of making precise lines.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero

This is simply such a good black eyeliner. It stays put on my lids (I have very oily lids) and goes on so smooth.
Yay! An eyelash curler that works for me. I have been on the hunt for something like this for a long time. It curls my lashes beautifully (no crimps!). I really think it's worth the price.
Lip Gloss -Bare Escentuals - Buxom Lips Lip Gloss in Amber

I can't really say anything bad about this gloss except I would like to see a teeny bit more pigmentation. But it's still worth it. Everything else is perfect: the smoothness, the tingly feeling and the smell that reminds me of cookies.
I'm also impressed by this one. It really is a classic white shimmering eyeshadow- a staple in any complete makeup kit. It's great for highlighting the eye area and brightening things up.
I really like this product but I don't feel like there's anything special about it. As long as it's not too shimmery, a highlighter is a highlighter, is a highlighter. So this is nice and all, but I wouldn't bother buying it again.
What a great product. This is a matte black eyeliner that is not too intense but is just enough. I like this because it gives you so much freedom as to how much you use and how you apply it. You will almost never need to buy a second, as a little goes a long way and you get a lot of product!
This is one of the worst mascaras I've ever tried. Not only does it do nothing to brighten my eyes, but it clumped and flaked like mad! The first few times I used it, I really liked it. But after a few days, it really started to clump, etc. It's just too bad because I really like the idea of this mascara.
Scrubs -Soap and Glory - Flake Away Spa Body Polish

I really like this scrub. I wasn't worried about any "skin nourishment", but I bought in hopes of exfoliating my rough and dark spots around my elbows, knees, neck, ankles etc. The product does what it says: it exfoliates dead skin. It smells very nice (not too strongly, though) and isn't too oily and greasy when I apply or after I rinse it away. I believe I purchased it for around 12 CAD and it was well worth the money.
I really like the brightness of this lipstick when applied. However, I do find this very drying on my lips because of the sparkle. But keeping in mind that it is a lustre, it is quite pigmented and pretty.
