After years and years of wasting money on mascara, I had decided to just stop wearing it. It was a watse of money for me because no matter what I used or what I did, it never made any difference. So it's surprising that I even bought this mascara at all. I am so happy with it! It actually makes me look like I have eyelashes!! And of course the brush is great so it's never clumpy. I highly reccomend this stuff! I never do my makeup without mascara now!
I am not really a fan of Stila products, generally I think they are mediocre and overpriced. I do make an exception for Oasis eye shadow though. It's one of the few shadows that is really unique to Stila. It's a beautiful gold color that I believe can work well on every skin color. Definitely a must have for all eye shadow lovers!

I am a C3 with terrible undereye circles, so wearing purple eye shadows has always been a big no-no for me. This trio is perfect however. The lightest purple shade had a lot of pinkish tones to it, so for me it's great because it isn't purple enough to make me look like I've been punched in the face, but it isn't pink either. The medium purple is a true purple but it's just the right color to complement the light color. I put it in the crease and it looked fabulous! I haven't tried the darkest color because I tend not to line in the same color I have as shadows. I love how silky the texture of the shadows are too. A hidden gem among eye shadow!
Concealers -New York Color - Cover Stick in Medium

Let me just start by saying that I have the worst undereye circles ever! Even the MAC s.a. told me they were beyond help. Ok, that said, I bought an NYC coverstick based on reccomendations from the boards, and it's only 2 dollars, so I fugred I really had nothing to lose. It is fabulous! It's pretty heavy, but no matter how many layers I put on (and I usually put on a couple because my circles are awful) it never gets cakey. It can crease however, but I haven't come across a heavy concealor that doesn't. For the price, it's absolutely a must have. It took me three tries to get the right color for me, but it was worth the 6 bucks!
This foundation is quite heavy, so it has a nice coverage. However, I found that by the end of the day it has just completely sunk into every one of my pores and accentuated them, no matter what I put on under it. I would not reccomend this for girls with large pores. It definitely covered all of my uneven skin though.
I think this blush is fantastic. Its the most gorgeous natural looking color for any skin tone. Its only 2 bucks at Wal-mart. I think every girl needs one! If you aren't sure wether or not to go for it- go for it! If you hate it, it was only two bucks. But, I'm sure you'll love it because its a classic color. No shimmer or glitter or anything "trendy" just classic natural color.
I was pleasantly surprised by this product. I love the way it smells. Its a great cleanser and an even better mask. I highly reccomend it, especially for us ladies with oily skin!
