Lipstick -Revlon - Colorburst Lip Butter - Cherry Tart
AlexandraNicole 1/5/2013 1:37:00 AM
Love this color! It's a bit pricey to me for drug store, but eh that wouldn't stop me from buying more shades. It gives a nice red tint. It's like having color on your lips but without the commitment of a lipstick. The packaging is great as you can see the color inside before you purchase. I'll be buying more!
First off I just want to say do not be fooled by the packaging! I purchased this at Ulta and the girl helped me find a shade right for me because I couldn't remember what my shade was. She based it off of the color we saw on the outside of the jar and that was very misleading! It looks much lighter on the outside. I believe this foundation is great; just not for my oily skin. I believe this would be great for someone with drier skin. I'm used to my revlon colorstay which is specifically for my skin. It goes on great, I just felt I was oilier by the end of the day. The only reason I wouldn't buy again is only because I don't think it's suitable for my skin type.

This was basically a waste of money to me. I had to like scrape it onto my eyelid just to get it on and I've paid less for other drug store eyeliners and had better results. I tried sharpening it to see if that would help and it pretty much didn't. I was surprised because I've heard nothing but good things but this didn't work for me.
Mascara -Maybelline - Great Lash Mascara Blackest Black

Worst mascara ever! I used to see my mom use this mascara as a kid, so I decided to try it. It is so wet, after I applied it, it got all over my lids! Did nothing for my lashes but make them stick straight. There wasnt anything wrong with the packaging, but Never buying this again!
Eye Shadow -L'Oreal - HiP Metallic Duo - Gilded #806

Three colors in this duo are gorgeous together. I wasn't crazy about the blackish one, because I felt it wasn't as heavy as the solid gold shadow. I would say these colors are for going out, or for a mee formal event, not really your every day colors. I'm ready to try more of their colors, and I was pretty impressed wih this duo. They are a little pricier than your other drugstore eyeshadows, but worth the money id say.
DO NOT waste your money on this! I found it to be thin and unflattering. It was too expensive for the quality. It was too wet and icky, clumped, and did nothing for me. Id say the only good thing about it was the pretty tube. Waste of my money.
I LOVE this foundation!! I've tried many other drugstore foundations along with pricier foundations, but this is by far my favorite. My skin can be really oily at times, and I have trouble finding foundations that aren't cakey, or, that rub off too easily. I can touch my skin without having to worry about getting makeup on my hands and it's awesome. They have plenty of shades, and even though I'm pale it doesn't make me look pasty. The only downside is the packaging. Sometimes I end up pouring too much and it gets everywhere. So I think a pump would be better, but other than that this is my favorite beauty product! Definitely great for oily skin.
Mascara -L'Oreal - Telescopic Explosion in Blackest Black

I really don't have anything bad to say about this mascara. The wand helps get the lashes on the outer corners of my eyes, and most other mascaras I've tried don't do that for me. It doesn't clump, and I feel that it makes my lashes longer, which is something else most others don't do for me. It doesn't help curling though, so if you're looking for curl this isn't for you. I put three lipsticks price wise bc it wasn't cheap, but under $10. But id buy this again.
I've always wanted a soft pink lipstick and this is what I bought a few weeks back. It's light and it easily goes with most of my makeup. Mac products aren't cheap (I think they start at $14.50), so I wouldn't recommend buying this unless you're certain you'll wear it often. My only complaint with their lipsticks is that they get dry and flaky easily, but the color is gorgeous!
Lip Treatments -Maybelline - Baby Lips in Cherry Me
AlexandraNicole 7/3/2012 12:19:00 AM
When Maybelline came out with these they immediately caught my eye because they're all so colorful. The Cherry Me flavor was one of the first ones I bought and I love it. Most lip balms appear to be somewhat tinted in the container but dont follow through once applied. That wasn't the case with this lip balm. It gives my lips a soft red tint and it's my favorite lip balm yet. It keep my lips moist, they're inexpensive, (I believe I payed $2 and some change), and the tint is perfect. I'll definitely be buying these again.
I've seen e.l.f. Products for a while now and I was skeptical to try this Bronzer but it is worth the $3! I'm fair so I need some color to my face and this is perfect. The rice is great and the compact it comes in is perfect. I can use it to apply my makeup because the mirror on it is a great size. If you have oily skin like me I wouldn't recommend putting too much on either side of your nose because I notice it tends to make me look a lot shinier in that area but other than that it's good stuff.
Eyeliner -Hard Candy - Walk the Line Liquid Eyeliner

I bought this eyeliner a few weeks ago because it had glitter in it, and I wanted to give it a try. I loved the applicator. It glides on easily, and it wasn't really messy going on. The only complaint I do have is the dry time. I feel like it takes forever to dry and sometimes smears on my eyelid depending on how much I apply. Aside from that I loved it!
