Highlighters -LORAC - Perfectly Lit Oil-Free Luminizing Powder in Luminous
CamR 7/7/2012 7:57:00 PM
This is the best highlighter I have ever found, and probably the only one I will ever use from now on. It can look subtle and natural, or you can build it up to create a stunning highlight on the brow bone. It is very finely milled and not sparkly at all. I absolutely love it,and would recommend it, and I will certainly be repurchasing it when I run out.
I love this blush, but the reason I only gave it 4 lippies instead of 5 is because it is a bit too shimmery for my taste. That being said, the colour and pigmentation are fantastic, and it lasts all day long on my skin. I love this blush, but when I use it up I will search for a less shimmery option instead of repurchasing.
I love this blush. I'm usually not a fan of cream blushes, but this one is really nice. It manages to be very pigmented, but very blendable at the same time which is very nice. I would repurchase, although I find it annoying that I have to order online because nowhere near me sells NYX products (even though I live in a big city).
This blush was WAY too shimmery for me, and because I have blemishes on my cheeks, this accentuated them way too much for my liking. It is also a bit chalky, not all that pigmented, and doesn't last all that long on my skin. I will not repurchase because the shipping to Canada took over 2 months, and the shipping rate was so expensive that this blush ended up costing me way more than it should have for the quality. In fact, I will not be purchasing any ELF products because the customer service was absolutely terrible. I would not recommend this product or this brand to anyone.
I absolutely love this blush. I'm not usually a fan of shimmery blushes, but this one is an exception because the shimmer is not over-the-top, and because the gorgeous colour makes up for it. It is very pigmented, lasts very well on my skin, and is very affordable. I will definietly repurchase this blush if i ever run out of it.

I do like this blush. For a drugstore blush I think it has quite nice pigmentation, although not as good as any of my higher end blushes. The colour is nice and I really appreciate that it is matte. I will not repurchase because I found it to still be expensive for a drugstore product, and I'd rather spend a few more dollars for a higher end blush.
Blush -New York Color - Color Wheel Mosaic Powder Pink Cheek Glow

This is a great warmish pink blush. It is not very pigmented when you try and swatch it with your finger, but on the cheeks the colour really shows nicely. I will repurchase.
I don't think this is the best primer on the market. I wanted to try this one because it is flesh toned, but it is not pigmented enough to even out the natural colour of my lids. My eyeshadows still crease with this primer although only after about 4 or 5 hours of wear rather than 2 or 3. I will not repurchase as I think that there are better options out there.

Great neutral and slightly cool toned shadows from the drugstore. They are very inexpensive eyeshadows, but they still have good colour payoff. I will definitely repurchase this palette.
Although these shadows are a little (just a little) chalky, I do love them because it's very hard to find matte eyeshadows from the drugstore. I love the cool tones in this quad because they are different from the other drugstore eyeshadows I own. I did use the browns for my eyebrows (I have dark blonde/light brown hair) but they were still a little warm (MAC Omega is much better), but as eyeshadows they are very nice.
Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eyeliner Gel Macroviolet

I have hazel eyes, and this colour enhances them so nicely! The formula is very creamy and easy to apply and it stays a very long time without fading or smudging. The only thing I dislike about this product is the shimmers in it because I find that it makes the liner look less pigmented/sheerer which is not good because I like my liners to be intense and really stand out. Regardless, I love this liner and the way it emphasizes the colour of my eyes. I will definitely repurchase when this one dries out.
I was disappointed with this product. It's not that it's a terribly bad product, but there was so much hype about the Color Tattoos that I thought it was going to be better than it was. The colour turns out very dull on my skin tone, it looks more taupe than bronze, which is disappointing. Because the colour is not what i wanted I will not repurchase, but the formula is still quite nice.
Lipstick -Revlon - Colorburst Lip Butter in Creme Brulee

I love this lip colour. At first I thought that it would be too dark a nude for my skin tone (I am very pale) but it actually looks lovely on me. I can't wait to see how it will look in the summer when I have a tan! I love the consistency of this lipstick, but I find the name to be inacurate because it is not moisturizing. However, I am still giving it a 5 because I love it as a lipstick, and it does not dry my lips out at all, but it just doesn't moisturize.

I love the colour of this lipstick, it is absolutely gorgeous and I like the fact that there is no shimmers in this lip butter. The only thing that disappointed me about this product is that it is not moisturizing at all. I was really hoping it would be since I have dry lips (sadly) but I will have to make do.
Lip Treatments -Maybelline - Baby Lips lip balm in Pink Punch

As a lip balm it is not the most moisturizing, but it is still quite good. However, where this product sells me is on the gorgeous colour it imparts to the lips! To me, its looks like I am wearing a lip stain (I really like that look, but lip stains dry my lips out). I don't like the packaging because it looks like it was designed for a 13 year old (which it probably was) but I'm 18 and I would definitely repurchase regardless. Love this product, I would definitely recommend it, especially because it's not very expensive and it's a lip colour and balm in one.
