This is my favorite lipstick, I cannot live without it. I pretty much wear it on a daily basis.
Concealers -Exuviance - coverblend multifunction concealer

My sister has been using this concealer for years and has been able to achieve a flawless look with it so recently I decided to buy it also. It does a great job covering my old acne scars and other flaws but I have to admit that it is a bit thick and can look cakey. Its a good idea to moisturize well before using this. Overall, I really like this concealer.
Palettes -Coastal Scents - 78 Piece Makeup Palette

I was so excited about this palette but it turned out to be a big regret. The colors are very chalky and barely visible even after applying several times. I would not recommend this to anyone nor buy it again.
Lotions/ Creams -Queen Helene - Cocoa Butter Hand and Body Lotion

I really like this lotion. I was in search for a lotion that really worked for me, normally all the other body lotions irritated my skin, feeling very heavy and yucky but this lotion is the first one that does not do that. I am not too crazy about the smell but it does not bother me that much. Update: Don't like this product as much anymore...have tried several other lotions over time and this seems too runny now.
I have oily skin so this foundation really did not work for me. It was not that good nor bad.
After doing a little research online I realized that this is a very popular mascara for some reason. I don't understand why... I think there are way better products available compared to this. This mascara did nothing special. It does not make the lashes look longer or thicker. I really don't recommend this.

This worked wonderfully for a couple of months but then I started breaking out really bad and apparently this product did not help at all.
Eyeliner -L'Oreal - HIP Color Truth Cream Eyeliner in Black

After doing my research online, I decided to purchase the Mac Fluidline and the Hip Cream Liner for backup. I love this eyeliner. Its great for my upper lid and waterline. It last a long time on the waterline compared to other liners. This eyeliner is pretty much the same as the Mac Fluidline..there are minor differences but the results are the same. The fluidline cost $15 for 3 oz and the Hip liner is $11 for 4.5 oz. I got mine from Ulta with a $5 off coupon so I got it at a great deal. I find myself using this more then the fluidline since it stays on my waterliner a little longer. Update: I realized that the top layer of the product dries up in the container after couple of weeks so you have to remove it and I ended up wasting a lot of it since it dried up. I discovered the Wet N Wild Creme Liner and like it much better than this.
The reason I don't like this powder is because it wears off by the end of the day. It does not go well with my oily skin. It looks good when I first put it on but then it disappears. However, I believe compared to many other powders that I have tried this is not that bad. I guess I don't like it that much anymore because I have found better Foundation Powder in the market...I recently discovered the Chanel Double Perfection Powder and the Laura Mercier Foundation Powder (last all day and controls my oil).
