I bought this in "Cherry Tart", a dark red color. It was super cheap - $1 at Target, so I thought "Why not?" and just randomly bought one. It has a slightly minty/cooling feel when you apply it, which I like. The color is pretty good (I have tan skin). The only downsides are that 1) you really only get half the tube/stick because when you open it, you have to keep twisting it up and nothing comes out until you are like halfway up, 2) the color doesn't last very long. Nevertheless, it's a cute and cheap lip gloss/stick that I would buy again!
This was my first blush and I found it to be pretty average - but this might only be because I didn't choose a good color. I am fairly tan so I couldn't see much of an effect on my cheeks. I also really didn't like the brush, which is why I gave this product a fairly low packaging score. I probably wouldn't buy this product again, but I think that it is still a pretty decent blush if you are on a tight budget or you want to try out some different colors before settling on a "better" blush.
This was my first time buying lipstick, so I decided to go for a "cheap" brand because I wanted to test some colors out. My lipstick cost $2 at Target. It turned out to be a great deal - this color looks very natural on me, but just adds a darker shade of pink to my lips. The downside is that it doesn't last very long if you are eating or drinking. I would probably go for a longer lasting lipstick in the future, but I still highly recommend this lipstick if you are testing colors out or don't mind constantly reapplying every hour or so. I would buy this product again if I had to try out a new color.

I love this lip gloss! I got it on sale at Bath and Body works over winter and am still using it. It has a very nice and natural color but also adds lots of shine to your lips. I like the mint because it makes my lips feel very cool. The only slight downside is that it gets a bit sticky so sometimes my boyfriend doesn't like to kiss me when I just put this on, but I would still recommend this lip gloss because the ONLY downside I could think of was the stickiness, which virtually all lip glosses have anyways :)
I love this eyeliner! Eyeliner and mascara are my essentials and I always buy this eyeliner time and time again. It goes on very smoothly and easily and I always get it in black. The only downside is that I might have oily eyelids or something because sometimes it will smear just a bit, but for the most part I can just close my eyes and wipe of the bit that smeared onto my crease (a very tiny bit, usually) and go on throughout the day. I usually wear this all day and it lasts all the time. It is not too expensive either, so I think it is a great deal and will probably continue to buy this. (I've already used up at least 3 of them!)
I've used up at least 2 of these and found it to be a fairly satisfactory but not awesome mascara. It definitely lengthens lashes but I feel like it could do more to thicken/add volume. It doesn't clump much, which is good. It is also fairly quick and easy to remove with eye-makeup remover. I would recommend this to people who want a pretty cheap mascara that does the job, but I don't think I will be buying it again - mascara and eyeliner are basically the only things I put on my face so I am looking/willing to buy a "better" mascara even if it is more expensive. Otherwise, if you want pretty good quality at a low price, this is a pretty good mascara.
