I really think that the entire line of Studio blushes from Elf are their best products! I have not tried one blush that I did not like. Tickled Pink is the perfect warm, baby pink that looks natural on your cheeks. It is perfect for everyday makeup because it looks like a natural flush! Staying power is average; about 5-6 hours of wear [definitely less if you sweat, etc.]. But for the price $3, this DS blush can't be beat!
I WANTED TO LOVE THIS MASCARA SO MUCH! I mean it has "doll" in the name. I was so excited to try this mascara out! But the first time I did wear it, my lashes didn't look as nice as I thought they would. The formula is a bit wet and great for lengthening and separating lashes, but there is a lack of volume. For what it's worth, it's definitely not worth the money! There are many other drugstore mascaras that are better than this! [NYX Dolly Mascara, L'Oreal Voluminous, CG Lashblast...]
I love Chanel polishes and was quite intrigued by the number of dupes Revlon had been producing (ahem Black Pearl and Paradoxal) so I picked this up, thinking it might really look like Graphite... NO. NO IT DOES NOT LOOK LIKE GRAPHITE. It is a silvery, metallic polish with pewter colored glitters but that is all. When it dries on my nails (after 2-3 coats) the sparkle is subdued and does not reflect like Graphite. I thought that adding a shiny top coat would fix this, but it didn't. It simply looks like a normal grey silver glitter polish. It definitely lacks the *OOMPH* Graphite provides. But still a very pretty and nice nail polish! Packaging: Love Revlon packaging. It is black and sleek. I also like their brushes. Price: OPI and ESSIE are a much better value if you're paying almost the same price as Revlon polishes, if the difference is only $1-2.
Cleansers -Philosophy - Purity Made Simple (Real Purity Cleanser)

Best cleanser ever! Ive only used this for 2 years, Im currently on my third bug bottle. Ive read some reviews on how the formulation has changed, regardless of what version ive tried, it still performs well! This takes off all my makeup. It doesn't necessarily lather, more so it melts the makeup off your face. It doesn't make your skin feel dry or tight either. I personally feel this is a good investment. Definitely gentle on your skin to be used more than once a day if needed!
Very good cleanser. Takes off all your makeup and leaves your skin SQUEAKY clean. Very fragrant scent, it may not be good for those who do not like scents. An entire bottle lasted me over a year! It might be pricey at first, but it will last you long!
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - Color Icon Trio - I Got Good Jeans

I bought this trio for the gold shade alone. It is gorgeous. But I have to say that the entire trio is gorgeous together! WnW are doing quite well with these shadows.
Nutty is one of my favorite eye shadows! It is a gorgeous taupey, silvery color that applies smooth on the lid! Color payoff is amazing! I have nothing bad to say about this except I wish it were in a bigger pan/pot! =]
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - Color Icon Trio - I'm Getting Sunburned

I love the colors in this palette! The pigmentation is wonderful and the texture of the shadows is smooth and creamy! My only problem with this trio is that the shadow itself seems to crack or fall apart much easier than the other square shadows? I don't know why. But still for the price, its still of great quality and value!
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - ColorIcon Palette in #249 Vanity [DISCONTINUED]

This is my go to eyeshadow palette for everyday wear, if I don't want to look like I'm wearing any makeup. I use the left side of the palette, which contains all matte shades, because they look very natural and clean on my skin. The shadow goes on very smooth, no fall out and is not powdery at all. It feels almost creamy, but not. Almost like smooth silk. I think this is a great started palette for anyone who is just beginning to dabble in makeup or who would like a palette that is travel friendly and inexpensive! Plus its not limited edition or anything and can be found in most stores =]
This wasn't such a special pigment till I caught myself in the mirror in bright natural lighting. It looked gorgeous as a wash over my eyes! Lovely, neutral pigment.
I didn't really like this when I first bought it. After taking it out of the packaging, I still wasn't blown away. I applied this just as a wash over my lids. A few minutes later, I almost bugged out because it looked SO PRETTY ON MY EYES! The color payoff is great. There is a pearl finish, not really frosty and looks very smooth and dainty on the eyes. So happy I got this =]

Oh, I love this trio! It is so gorgeous! The shades apply on smoothly and feel like butter! I might pick up another one of these if I find it. Ah, I can't get over how gorgeous the colors of this palette are. You'd never think they were drugstore eyeshadows.
I love blue eyeshadows! They are probably my favorite color to wear on my eyes. Tilt is an icy, frosty sky blue with hints of silver and almost light green. This color is gorgeous. I love wearing this with just black liner. It really makes my eyes pop.
I love this color! It pairs so well with nude looks for a gorgeous smokey eye look! I'd buy it again if it ever came out. Please MAC, release this again. Please?! I'll buy two backups this time instead of just one.
Highlighters -Christian Dior - Shimmer Powder 002 Amber Diamond, Spring 08

Gorgeous highlight! I've recently become a big fan of highlighters and this one is one of them! I only took off one lippy because of the price, but otherwise it'd be 5 all across the board! The fine shimmer on this powder is very fine. It almost feels a bit cream like. Looks gorgeous all over the face without having to look like a disco ball.
