I LOVE THESE! I got them in Mocha Mousse and Berry Smoothie. MM is a pinky toned brown that looks great with any skin. Berry Smoothie at first glance is a deeper red based berry, but it really is a almost-hot-pink berry color. It can actually be either one depending on which color you wear under it or what color your lips are. The packaging is great, it has just the right amount of pigmentation. The staying power is okay, but I don't mind reapplying. The best part is the price! I got these for about $3 at my local Walmart. I'm a tween, so I can't affored HE glosses, but these are perfect for my budget. And for those e.l.f lovers out there (me being one of them) these totally top the e.l.f mineral lip glosses.
I liked this gloss. It wasn't that pigmented, but the packaging was great. I bought this because I couldn't find the shiny-licious line, I think it was discontinued. I got it in 50 Cocoa Fever and it's pretty okay. It's good to have a sheer color over a lipstick or stain or alone if you're running errands.
I loved this mascara! I wanted a clear mascara and stumbled upon this at Walmart for about $6. I bought it and immediately loved it! I use this before my elf Studio Lengthining and Volumizing Macara to seperate my lashes, and after to lock it in place. The only problem is if you use it after a tinted mascara, the product inside the tube turns black or brown, I don't mind. I also use this for my brows sometimes and it looks fairly nice. I love the packagine, it's clear, and very easy to get the brush out without losing all the product. It's small and fits in my cramped makeup bag. I will for sure repurchase.

I bought this a Dollar Tree when I was first starting makeup (I'm 12 btw) at first I loved it. Very beautiful colors, perfect for a neutural eye for any tween. But now that I raised my standards (lol) I see the cons: - Too powdery - Not pigmented enough - Hurts the rash that I have above my eye. I won't purchase again because there are eyeshadows from elf that are better.
I got this in Trendsetter, Daring, and Sorority Girl. I absolutely LOVED this. It's not sticky like most glosses. And, it looks great on it's own and with a lipstick. And girls, if any of you are debating on buying Daring because it's too bright, buy it. It looks bright on the site, but in real life it's a shimmery red in the tube, and on your lips it's a sheer, shimmery, hot pink kind of color. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a sheer kind of lip gloss with a touch of color. The packaging reminds me of MAC lipglass. 5 lippies for sure! ***UPDATE*** I decided that these aren't as great as I thought they were, they're a bit too heavy. But still, 4 lippies!
I LOVED this lipstick! I'm actually in my tweens, and this is the first lipstick I've ever purchased, and for a buck? Friggen' amazing! I was looking for a sheer nude type lipstick to wear to church and things like that, and I bought this in 301 Cafe, it was great! The only think I don't like about the packaging is that the first time it's hard to get the cap off and I nearly broke the lipstick trying. I'm for sure going to get other colors.
I really liked this eyeliner. I was looking for something different and waterproof. Pros: - Easier - Cheap - Good for smudging and long lasting wear Cons: - It's hard to get the cap off I'd suggest this for people who want a liquid eyeliner look but, like me, don't have the steady hand for liquid liner. I ordered this in Plum and Black. The Plum didn't even look plum, it looked like a soft black. I don't even know what happened to the black. The plum went on smoothly and painlessly, the black one felt like I was putting on eyeliner with a safety pin. Overall the plum was great, and I'm going to get the other colors.

I loved this product. I expected it to suck since people were complaining about the "sparkles" and pigmentation, but I love it! I took a lippie off because it was a bit too powdery. But otherwise, it was amazing! I love the packaging, similar to Nars. I took a lippie off because when I opened it the first time the mirror fell out! I pressed it back in and it's been fine since then, though. I'd buy this again.
I LOVED this product. I bought it thinking that it would be amazing as reviews claimed, it totally went above and BEYOND my expectations! I apply alone, or to set my tinted moisturizer. Since I'm dark skinned I thought it would make me ashy if worn alone but it totally didn't. It just made me look a bit lighter. I apply it with the elf complexion brush or the powder brush and then buff it in with a kabuki... It works ah-mazing! I would for sure repurchase.
