Concealers -Sonia Kashuk - Take Cover Concealing Stick
Sunkissed101 12/16/2012 11:16:00 AM
This concealer was extremely dry, thick, and caky. It highlighted all of my blemishes, outlined all of my flakes, and felt as dry as drawing on your face with a crayon. I don't know if this would work for ANYONE, and do not recommend it! The packaging, for me, was hard to open without scraping chunks of the product. I believe there are so many other concealers out there that are probably WAY CHEAPER and way better quality. NEVER AGAIN.
This is an amazing product! I use it over my concealer, and it makes my skin look very fresh. I haven't broken out because of it, and it doesn't appear to infuriate my somewhat-sensitive skin in any way. The packaging is ideal for a mineral powder, and it applies wonderfully to exfoliated, moisturized skin. It's very easy to put on, and provides excellently natural coverage. I think it will work for any skin type or skin color!
Blush -Wet 'n' Wild - Silk Finish Blush - Mellow Wine 833D

I won't repurchase this blush because I purchased the wrong color for my skin tone. However, it is super silky, pigmented, and overall a delightful formula to use on my cheeks. The packaging is okay, and the brush it comes with is poor quality, but otherwise it's a truly amazing product. What I love about it is that it doesn't contain shimmer, one thing that has previously peeved me about some other blushes. I recommend this to anyone!!
Powder -L'Oreal - True Match Super-Blendable Powder
Sunkissed101 12/8/2012 9:46:00 PM
I found this to actually not control my oil as good as I thought it would. I hadn't even left the house, and my nose was already oily!! DISGUSTINGLY oily, and my skin usually isn't that terrible! It also oxidized orange on my skin, making me look just like Snooki. It caked, it settled, it looked very noticeable on my pores, and I hate it. The packaging is fine, I actually really liked the packaging, but the powder itself is terrible. I don't want to touch up every few seconds, and I DO NOT want to look like someone blew Cheetos dust all over my face.
Lip Gloss -Femme Couture - Lip Luster - Creamy Coral

I actually have the lip luster in Smooth Coral, which is a much more toned-down, neutral pink. It has extremely creamy, opaque color and phenomenal shine, it's just one of those lip glosses that can brighten any face! I love the formula, the color selection, everything, and it's surprising that I haven't heard much talk about this before! JUST SAYING: It smells like vanilla cookies, and I love the brush applicator. <3 It's a keeper!
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - Color Icon Trio - Walking on Eggshells
Sunkissed101 12/8/2012 9:27:00 PM
This is every girls basic eyeshadow trio. There were beautiful, pigmented colors that looked very natural, and, I'm guessing, will complement any eye color. The packaging was okay, it showed how to apply the colors on the back, and I absolutely loved the velvety feel of the eyeshadows. They're inexpensive and high-quality: A total must-have for anyone looking to save money. These are totally comparable to ANY high-end brand (Urban Decay, Smashbox, The Balm, Too Faced, ect.), and maybe even better!
Lip Gloss -Clinique - Long Last Glosswear SPF 15 in Guavagold
Sunkissed101 12/7/2012 11:41:00 PM
When I first saw this gloss, I thought "Oh my god, love at first sight!" But when I actually tried it, it was the most sticky, gooey gloss I have ever tried, and smelled and tasted very chemically. The packaging is very chic, quite slim, too, and the gloss is very long lasting, but I prefer more creamy formulas. One good thing that stood out was the color and pigmentation, but this gloss isn't for me.
BB Cream -Estee Lauder - Daywear BB Anti-Oxidant Beauty Benefit Creme SPF 35
Sunkissed101 12/6/2012 3:00:00 PM
I have very mixed feelings about this BB Cream. I like the cucumber-melon scent, it's very refreshing, and provides buildable coverage with a dewy-to-satin finish. I think it's great for layering under concealer for extra coverage, or, if you're oily like me, your staple pressed powder, but other than that it's nothing special. On the skin, the product "pilled up" or "balled up" almost instantly, which was very unattractive and almost impossible to get rid of. The packaging is okay but it's pretty expensive, so I don't think I'm going to repurchase.
I think this lip gloss is a hit-or-miss. I purchased 580, a warm berry-pink with very fine gold shimmer. It looks great on, super natural, and brings out the warmth in my face! I'm not too big on the scent though, it's slightly sweet, but other than that I don't have a problem. It's a smooth formula, not sticky at all, and doesn't look the least bit metallic on me. The packaging is super slim, which I think is a plus, but it's not something I reach for in my collection very often. I might repurchase.
I have this product in Peach Sorbet. It is really sheer, semi-glossy, and very sweet smelling and tasting. If you wear a balm under this, it isn't sticky at all! I like to layer it on top of lipstick or just wear it alone for a very natural look, but if you are all for intense color and shine, this isn't for you. The packaging is okay, pretty cute, but nothing special. This is a very kiss-friendly lipgloss, but I think I can find a better quality one. When I think "shine sensational", I think glossy, voluptuous lips that pack a powerful punch, this just didn't live up to my standards.
Caky, caky, caky. It settled into my lines, and actually did CRACKLE. Literally, it dried up on my skin and looked like scales!! I've never seen a more caky concealer. It had fine coverage, sure, the coverage was great, but it looked so completely obvious! You get a decent amount of product, too, but this was not my favorite concealer.
I purchased both the concealer and foundation, and neither of them did the job. It turned Snooki-orange on my skin, accentuated my pores, and didn't cover anything. Blended terribly. Looked caky. Worst foundation EVER!
I have recently purchased Red Velvet and Sugar Plum..and I love the two of them just the same! They go on creamy and smooth with super-bold pigmentation. The only dislikes I have is the packaging..sometimes the product can develop a sort of lip in the lid and I have to wipe it off. Red Velvet is like a smooth, deep red cream that will work for almost anyone! It's a great Autumn/ Christmas color..very festive, very nice. Sugar Plum was actually lighter than I expected, but still very pretty. It's a light, warm, creamy plum, that looks very nice on the lips. It can actually make your lips look a bit fuller and very sexy. Topped with a gloss, it's a total keeper. Over all, very moisturizing and rich formulas. A must-have for anyone!!
Lipstick -Unlisted Brand - Gabriel Cosmetics - Lipstick

I purchased the color Salmon, a warm, pretty, orangey, pinky, beautiful salmon color. It looks nice and understated, and brings out all the warm tones in my skin! What I love about it is that it almost has a glossy finish, making your lips look lush, and the packaging is beautiful. I have no problems with this lipstick, except it doesn't last very long at all, so I knocked one lippie off.
I found this product to be moisturizing, plumping, and luscious! It makes your lips look full, plump, and healthy, which I love.
