Love this! I got the Midnight in Paris color and it lasts all day on the upper lid, and longer than any other gel liner I've tried on the waterline. I doesn't smudge, is pigmented and cheap. Will definitely be repurchasing.
Eyeliner -Jordana - Fabu Liner Liquid Eyeliner Pen

Pro's are that the felt tip makes application so easy to do a winged look, I like the matte black color and it looks great when applied. However, the lasting power is not very good, by the end of an 8 hour day the wings are completely faded away, and I have to reapply my liner. I have oily lids, but I do use a primer underneath and I still have the fading issue. I prefer the Milani Ultra Fine liner, which is darker in color and lasts all day without fading.
Mascara -Jordana - Best Lash Extreme Volumizing Mascara

I love this mascara! Tons of volume, not clumpy, very black, buildable. One tube last quite a while, as it doesn't dry out quickly. And it's so cheap and easily available at the drug store. I will always have a tube on hand as it has become a favorite of mine, and it's easy to travel with because its a shorter, more compact tube. Just have to wipe off any excess on the tip of the wand. No flaking, no smudging. Win!
I love this foundation! Great high coverage, perfect color match, and holds up to my oily skin so well. This wears like iron, seriously, 16 hours later and the foundation is still looking good. A very little bit goes a long way. I like to apply it with a damp sponge. Would definitely repurchase.
I was expecting to like this because I have really oily skin. However, this was too difficult to apply, I could not for the life of me get it to look natural. It was soo cakey, whether applied with brushes, fingers, beauty blender, it just looked so obvious and heavy. It also really accentuated any flakes I had. Liked the pump, but it would dry up and get clogged so could be pretty messy. Going to have to pass on this one.
I love this stuff and continue to repurchase it to use on my colored and heat styled hair. So gentle and moisturizing and really close to the original in smell, appearance, texture and performance. Love being able to save money by buying this knockoff.
I put off buying this for a while because it only came in 3 shades and none of them looked like they would match me, but when I saw they came out with a Light Medium shade, I snatched it up and it matches pretty decent. I and I don't believe I'll ever run out because a little goes such a long way. Soo full coverage. I like this for my blemishes/dark spots, just need to blend out a lot or else it can look obvious/flat looking. I tried it for under my eyes, and although it covered all my undereye circles, it was too dry looking and settled into my fine lines, so I would not use for that purpose. Love this for full coverage.
Very pretty pale frosty pink, love wearing this on my fingers. The color makes me feel like a princess. Definitely needs two coats, needs to be built up in thin layers. Get compliments on this all the time. Contasts against my warm skin tone.
This is a shimmerbomb. I got it for the pretty pink color, but when put on the cheeks it was just way too shimmery for me, to where it overpowered the pink base. It also wore off after a few hours. Returned.

I got this in the shade 817 Light, and it was not yellow enough for my skin tone (NC25-30), it came off as looking too peachy. I found that it was more medium coverage than full, even after appling a couple of layers I still had visible redness and spots showing. Got a nice matte finish, and preferred using a beauty blender or brush to apply it with, as it looked more cakey when I used my fingers. I have oily skin and while the finish was nice upon application, after a few hours there was shine on the nose, forehead and chin. And after about 4 hours it started to sink into my pores and not look all that great. Wish it were longer lasting and came in better shades.
I bought the nonwaterproof version and I typically like rubber bristles, however these are too short, to where it is hard to apply without poking my eyelid with the wand. It did create lots of volume, which was great, however it did not hold a curl, so my lashes were stick straight to where they were not really visible. Whatever you do not try to curl your lashes after applying this! I tried to a it sticks to the curler and ripped out a lot of lashes, leaving me with a bald spot. Then I when I tried to remove it with my normal oil based remover it was soo difficult to try to remove, so I lost more lashes. It will take me forever to try to grow my lashes back out!
Eyeliner -Jordana - Punk Rock Purple Glitter Rocks

This is very glittery and the glitter falls from my eyes throughout the day and ends up all over my face. Not a fan.
I really liked the color of this and that it is a retractable liner, however it smudges up into my crease within an hour.
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - inked in Pink Color Tattoo

Loving this creamy color tattoo. I have been wearing it daily for the past month and have been pairing it with purples, grays, browns and blues. It really brings out my brown eyes. Such a soft lovely shade that enhances any pink shadow I put over it. Sometimes I'll wear a matching shimmering pink over it, or if I don't feel like shimmer that day I'll just throw a matte pink over it and the shimmer doesn't show through. I do find that if worn without primer it will crease by the end of an 8 hour day, but I just rub my finger over it and it looks okay again.

This was gritty feeling, did not apply smooth, was not very pigmented and flaked off during the day.
