This lipstick has been one of my favorites since the day I got it. It's a perfect pinky nude but it's not that nude that's going to wash you out. This color goes great with my skin tone and with any makeup look. I've also seen it on a friend with darker skin than me and it looked great on her too.
I was at my dermatologist and my skin was very dry from an acne medication i was using. The moisturizers i was using just wasn't helping at all. They had samples of this in the waiting area so i tried it and it made my skin feel sooo much better. I went to CVS and bought this for $15. I use this every day for my face and i've had the bottle for over a year and still have so much left. It's very light on your face, it absorbs into the skin very well.
This is for the white handle brush - I've never had a brush that sheds so much in my life. It's not like every once in a while i end up with hairs on my face.. it's every time i use it. It gets really annoying to have to constantly pick the shedding hairs off my face all the time. Other than that though, the brush is nice and soft and gives me a nice dusting of my power over my foundations.
I don't understand exactly what this mascara is supposed to do. I really wanted to like it and I've always seen people rave about this, especially in magazines. This mascara literally makes all my lashes look like 3 big ones. It doesn't separate them at all. There isn't anything that i like about this mascara.

This is the perfect fall/winter shade for me. I tend to get pretty pale during this time and this color just looks gorgeous. I got it as a sample and never really reached for it. One day i saw it and decided to give it a go. I've been using it every single day since then. It seems very shimmery but i don't think it seems that shimmery after you apply it to your cheeks.

I got this lipstick as a free gift from clinique. At first i didnt like this lipstick at all. Like a few other people said, it didn't look flattering. I usually stick to pinks and nudes. I still kept it in my collection. Now that i'm a bit older, i feel like i can start to wear more color on my lips. I pulled this out again and fell in love with it. It is a dark color but you can definitely tone it down by blotting it with some tissue. It's a plummy, berry color. I wore it with very neutral eye makeup, literally almost the color of my skin, which i also think helped make this lipstick look better on me. It's so smooth and not drying.

This is a nice fall time scent. It's actually kind of strange. Sometimes when i smell it, it smells like a warmer scent. Other times it smells very sweet like vanilla. Also, this is one of the few scents that actually last on me for a while.
I do like this primer when i first put it on. It hides the appearance of my huge pores and makes my foundation go on flawlessly. What i don't like though is that it's suppose to keep your face matte but this is the only primer that makes my face really oily after a few hours and it makes any of my foundations look patchy.
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - Color Icon Trio - Walking on Eggshells

I am just so amazed at how great a $3 palette is. I've heard so much hype about this trio and with the price i had to try it. The colors are so beautifully pigmented that i would pay what i paid for the naked palette for this. It's definitly worth a try if you haven't yet.
i bought one in pink satin which appears to be a bright pink color. i put it on my lips and it did feel pretty moistrurizing but the pigmentation of this product is so bad that i just might as well use a clear chapstick. I'm really dissapointed in this product.
Blush -E.L.F. - Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder

I really like the quality of this duo. The blush and bronzer are both very flattering on me. The only thing is that the bronzer is very dark on my skin tone so i just have to use a little and really blend. The blush is a peachy color and is very shimmery which i personally like.
I have tried other brushes from elf that i have really liked. I have NEVER loved a brush until now. I used this to apply my liquid foundation and WOW! My makeup has never looked so FLAWLESS. i couldn't stop looking at how smooth and amazing my skin looked and trust me my face is far from flawless. I have huge pores everywhere, some acne and blackheads. Plus it's only $3! I will never apply my makeup with anything else ever again.
I first bought Peach Kiss which is a nude with some shimmer. I also bought quenched, peppermint which are both clear and pink punch which is a pretty almost barbie pink. I tried it once and didn't really like it because i felt like it wasn't as moisturizing as it should be and put them to the side. Then i went back to them because i didn't feel like wasting my money and fell in love with them. They are very moisturizing. It definitly needs to be reapplied though and doesn't last the whole 8 hours that it claims. They have a very shiney look to them when they're on your lips, especially the clear ones. They look almost glossy. I also love the smell of them. The packaging is really cute and eye catching. The top snaps into place and i haven't had any problems of it coming off. I will definitly buy this product again
Lipstick -Avon - Ultra Color Riche in Sparkling Nude

I don't like this lipstick at all. When the name said sparkling nude, i didn't expect to literally have CHUNKS of sparkles all over my lips. The sparkles in this are not fine pieces at all. It was wayyyy too sparkly for me.
This is a beautiful bright red. It goes on amazingly and doesn't dry out your lips. The only thing i absolutly HATE about this lipstick though is that it really stains your lips. I have the same problem with the color enchantress.
