I really like this product! I don't normally wear lipliner but I had heard good things about this product so I decided to pick one up. It's basically the same color as my natural lips but about three shades deeper which gives my lips a very nice deep sexy color. It lasts longer than any lipstick that I have tried (I don't wear lipstick often either) and I can't even feel it on my lips. This is definitely my go to everyday lip product! I normally don't wear it with anything else on my lips but a little bit of lip balm underneath and it looks great, but if I want a more glossy finish I will just top it off with a rosy lipgloss. I love that it isn't too deep that I can only wear it at night, but that I can also wear it during the day and it makes my face look healthy and alive! :) I highly recommend this product, especially if you have a deeper skintone like mine. (about nc30 for reference)
Pressed Powders -E.L.F. - Clarifying Pressed Powder

I LOVE this product!!! It's only 1$ and it helps mattify my face and keep it matte the entire day! Not only that, but applied with a puff, this stuff has some serious kick butt coverage!! I can apply this lightly to set foundation or concealer and it looks great, but on days when I dont want to bother with concealer or foundation, I reach for this! I have moderate acne and pretty bad dark circles, and this covers them completely when rolled on with a sponge! It doesnt oxidize or look cakey either. It covers amazingly well and still looks natural! This is a drugstore gem in my opinion! :)
Lip Treatments -Maybelline - Baby Lips in Peach Kiss
Gymnaststar14 6/1/2012 11:10:00 AM
I lovelovelove this!! It's the perfect nudey peachy color and it really makes my very tan skin glow! It has a nice shiny finish and it cancels out the hyperpigmentation my lips have naturally and actually lightens them! It smells delish, stays on for a good amount of time, and is moisturizing! It makes my lips look soft and pretty yet natural therefore kissable! I even had a guy tell me that my lips were gorgeous when I was wearing this so thumbs up maybelline! :)
I have this in coral reef and it is one of my favorite blushes of my life! It looks so pretty and natural and gives me the most perfect coral glow! My two favorite blushes are this and nyx's hot pink cream blush and honestly I dont need any other blush if I just have these two! LOVE :))
I actually really like this product! I don't know if anybody else has fried this but it looks beautiful on the cheeks! I apply it in the morning and it seriously stays on the whole day and gives me a beautiful natural peachy coraly flush! When I use it on my lips, I put a little concealer on my extremely pigmented lips and then my nivea lip balm and after that I dab some of this onto my lips and blend it with my finger and it looks soo pretty! I have hardly any matte lip colors so I love having this in my collection. It's also extremely pigmented so a little goes a long way. If you were to swipe this all over your lips you would get a neon coral shade which is also pretty, just not what I'm going for. :) over all I love this product and will repurchase!

I use this as an all over setting powder and then apply more heavily on my cheeks as blush and it works beautifully with my skintone! :)
Lipstick -Revlon - Colorburst Lip Butter - Berry Smoothie

I love this color on my olive skintone! Its a wearable rosy pink color and sometimes I even wear this with no other makeup and it wakes my face up quickly and beautifully! I love it! :)
I am a huge fan of this product because it's the only mascara that I have ever used in my life that doesn't smudge!!!!!!!!! The ONLY one! Even waterproof and smudge proof mascaras still smear on me so I figured that was just how it was always going to be. No more!! This stays on the whole day and doesn't budge! YAY!!!! I personally don't think that it's too hard to remove with my elf makeup remover wipes but whatever. I have it in black gold which I really like because it's a solid black with hints of gold sparkles in it which aren't noticeable on your lashes but really help my vibrant green eyes pop even more! :)
This blush is great! I use my fingers to apply and blend in to my cheeks and I also use it on my lips with some gloss over the top. I would not call the finish "natural", but I really like the way it wakes up my face and how bright and fun it is! Its very pigmented and matte and a really nice creamy texture. I use it almost every day and I love the glow it gives my skin! :) I recommend this product to a lot of people although I think it is a very 'young' shade that would not look very age appropriate on middle aged or elderly women. However it looks great on teens and young adults!
Cleansers -E.L.F. - Studio Makeup Remover Cleansing Cloths
Gymnaststar14 3/16/2012 1:08:00 AM
This is my HG makeup remover :) Other makeup removers irritate my eye area and make it red, raw, and painful, but then dont even remove everything!! These dont do that and they remove every speck of makeup which means I no longer wake up with that unattractive ring of black leftover eyeliner or mascara underneath my eyes! Oh, and its also super inexpensive and the wipes are really soft! Love it!
This product is great! I have it in beige which blends into my skin tone perfectly! This concealer has amazing coverage and a little bit goes a long way! I typically apply it onto the back of my hand and then use a fluffy blending brush to apply it onto my face after the NYX oil control primer and it looks great!
The best mask everrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!! I use this EVERY SINGLE DAY and it is amazing!! It doesnt dry out my skin or anything; it just really deep cleans it and leaves it feeling so tight and refreshed! It smells incredible and it has a nice cooling sensation as it dries! I wasnt expecting it to heal up and blemishes or anything even though it said it would but since I started using it, my skin has cleared up amazingly!! Every morning I first wash my face using my HG aveeno clear complexion foaming cleanser, the I smooth this all over my face and wait for it to dry and wash it off, then I moisturize my skin using my aveeno clear complexion moisturizer and I cant live without this! It has cleared up blemishes, prevented new blemishes from appearing, prevented blackheads, and evened out my skintone all at once! (its also super fun to be an alien face for 15-20 minutes!:D) Love it!
Lip Gloss -E.L.F. - Super Glossy Lip Shine SPF 15 - Honey Do
Gymnaststar14 3/6/2012 5:41:00 PM
Super pretty color and my favorite way to wear it is to apply it over the revlon lip butter in creme brulee or any nude lippy! It looks SO PRETTY like that! The nude helps the color show up more and makes it look like a soft, light coral color and I love the effect it gives! :D
I really like using this primer on a day to day basis for my eyeshadow because although it is not the best, it also isnt the worst and I use it when I dont want to waste my UDPP. That being said, what I like doing the most with this product, is using it as a LIP primer! That may sound really really weird to some people, but I have really pigmented lips so it helps to mute them out so I can apply lipgloss and lipstick more true to color and it also helps them last longer! Highly recommended!
Bronzers -E.L.F. - Healthy Glow Bronzing Powder -- Sunkissed
Gymnaststar14 3/6/2012 5:33:00 PM
Ok so I dont use this as a bronzer because of my medium olive skin tone but instead as a blush! It is kind of a shimmery rosy bronze color and it works so beautifully with my skin tone. I DO however have to use a little bit of a light hand because I dont want to overdo it. It is a buildable color however and is really pretty. I also really enjoy using this color as an eyeshadow! I really like the look of shimmery and matte shadows in the same look because I feel like it prevents you from overdoing one or the other. So what I love doing a lot of the time is first priming my eyes, then applying my powder foundation on my lids up to my browbone, and finally just applying this color through my crease and blending and it looks GORGEOUS!! I would reccomend this product to anybody looking for a nice shimmery rosy bronze blush or eyeshadow! :)
