This is the first foundation I ever tried, and I have to say I was very impressed by it! It has really great coverage (medium to full), and it leaves a semi-matte finish. I have dry combination skin, and this gets a tad bit oily around my nose area throughout the day, but that isn't a huge problem for me. However, if you have oily skin, I probably wouldn't recommend this foundation to you because it might be a little too oily. Also, it has a light floral scent, which some people might not like, but I personally don't really mind it. This foundation offers many shades. I wear shade 120, but since it's a bit too light for me, I either mix it with something darker or just apply a thin layer when I use it. The bad thing about the packaging of this foundation is that it doesn't have a pump, and a lot tends to pour out of it, which in this case, you only need a little for your whole face.The 100's are for light skintones, 200's are for medium skintones, and the 300's are for darker skintones. It's a pretty affordable foundation at the drugstore, considering that other foundations can even be around the 10-14 dollar range. Overall, I would recommend it if you have a similar skin type to me, because it has great coverage and doesn't feel too heavy!
Lipstick -Maybelline - Color Whisper - Berry Ready
Hayyleyyissmee 2/12/2013 1:13:00 AM
This new release at the drugstore is amazing! It feels really silky and smooth on the lips, but be careful when you're smacking your lips together! It can sometimes go out of your lipline. Other then that, this color is a gorgeous berry-red color, and has a very buildable formula. I love wearing this product sheer on my lips because it enhances my natural lip color, and doesn"t look overly dramatic. However, if you're a BRIGHT lipstick girl, you'll definitely be able to make this lipstick look opique and pigmented to the MAX. What surprised me the most was how lightweight it felt on my lips, and how the color payoff was so outstanding! It feels very moisturizing on the lips when freshly applied, but I'd still recommend you to apply a lipbalm before hand. This lipstick tends to set on your lips, leaving a stain that can feel a bit drying later on. But this is a great product, considering its price compared to other drugstore lipsticks currently available, and has adorable packaging! Definitely want to try some of the other shades!
Lip Treatments -eos - Lip Balm Sphere - Pomegranate Raspberry
Hayyleyyissmee 12/1/2012 9:00:00 PM
I was soo excited for this. I already had the honeydew honeymelon one and I really wanted to try a different flavour. This smells really good, and I find it to be moisturizing enough. But I feel like it isn't extremely moisturizing, at least not as moisturizing as some lipbalms that I have tried in the past. It's hydrating, but not as hydrating as I would like it to be. It's very comfortable on the lips, and gives a very natural-looking shine.
I have this in coffee, which is a nice brown color. I use this a lot on my upper lashline to give my eyelashes a fuller look, and I have to say, it works pretty well! Cons about it is that it isn't very creamy, and has more of a waxy consistency, but you just need to layer it a few more times to get goood color pay off. I cant say it lasts long, but since I dont wear makeup for a long period of time anyways, it works fine. Really wanna get the other colors!
Eye Shadow -L.A. Colors - 5 Color Metallic Eyeshadow in Darling

These eyeshadows are really silky feeling and pigmented! I was very happy with these eyeshadows, because of their awesome pigmentation and richness. Their very nice, shimmery and metallic eyeshadows, and this particular color is really flattering on the eyes! Love this, and definitely wanna pick up other shades!
Cleansers -Clean & Clear - Morning Burst Skin Brightening Cleanser
Hayyleyyissmee 11/12/2012 6:04:00 PM
I really love using this cleanser with a little fishy pad. I find that doing this really helps foam up the product. I use this once a day, and I can't say that I notice a HUGE difference after using it, but it does sorta make me feel refreshed and clean! It's very awakening, but the thing that I don't like about it is that after using it, it would make my face feel very tight and uncomfortable. Definitely didn't make a big difference in my skin, and it didn't REALLY help with acne, but it is very refreshing. I think that this cleanser would probably be better to those who have oily skin, just because I have sensitive and dry-combination skin, and it dried my skin a little. It would probably be great for cleaning off all the oil and residue to those who need a cleanser that does that. Would recommend it to those with oily skin and who just need a burst of refreshment after a long day!
Pressed Powders -E.L.F. - Clarifying Pressed Powder
Hayyleyyissmee 11/12/2012 5:54:00 PM
Love this powder! I've been using this for about a year now, and honestly, when I first started using it, I thought that I was gonna run out of it in no time, but I've hardly made a dent in it. I got this in light beige, thinking that it was gonna be too light for my medium toned complexion, but it's actually a great match! I love using it with both a brush and a puff. I think applying it with a powder brush gives a more light application, while applying it with a puff gives a whole lot more coverage and matifys super well! For a dollar, you really can't go wrong, and it works just as well as some of the higher-end powders out there! I'd recommend it to anybody out there looking for a great all-around face powder!
Blush -Clinique - Blushing Blush Powder Blush - Smoldering Plum
Hayyleyyissmee 11/12/2012 5:42:00 PM
I recieved a decent sample size of this blush in a gift set, and I have to say, I really like it! It's a very pigmented plummy, rosy shade with a little blue shimmer to it. I thought that it was going to be glittery, but it really wasn't. It goes on a dusty rose color that I think would look very flattering on many different skin tones. Goes on very silky and smooth, and I would definitely recommend it!
These lip glosses I found were very nice for the price. They aren't sticky, but still have just enough tackyness to help them stay on for longer. I don't know if it was just the set that I got, but it seemed as if all the colors smelled different. The one in 'miami' smelled really good and fruity, but the one in 'pink' smelled like soap and chemicals. I am not fond of lip products that smell weird, especially because there's a chance I might swallow them. But for those who don't mind smells, this is a great set, considering the price for all 5 of them!
Lip Gloss -Wet 'n' Wild - Natural Blend lip shimmer in Berry
Hayyleyyissmee 11/12/2012 5:23:00 PM
Really love this! It gives a great subtle shimmer to the lips, while giving the lips a natural pink color. I love how it doesn't make my lips feel dry, as some others do. For me, it's really hard to be able to pull off a frosty/shimmery lip color, but this works really well and looks awesome! Definitely recommend it!
This eyeliner wasn't the best for me. The brush is very flimsy, and it's really hard to control, especially because I'm not an expert at applying liquid eyeliner. The formula isn't very long-wearing, but I really like the pigmented black color that comes from it. Overall I definitely wouldn't recommend it to beginners, but if you're used to eyeliners with a similar tip, you might find it to be good. Wouldn't really recommend it.
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Fine Fragrance Mist in Pink Chiffon
Hayyleyyissmee 11/12/2012 4:54:00 PM
This is an amazing scent, very sweet, definitely a scent that I enjoy! I love wearing this everywhere, as it isn't super strong, but still makes you smell good. Not so much on the fruity side, which I enjoy. It's a little pricey, but I think it's definitely worth it, and it lasts a long time for me! I've probably used it about 50 times, and there's still 7/8's left of it. Love it! A super wearable scent, and those sweet smell lovers, this is great!
This concealer is great for the undereyes, at least if you don't have major dark undereye circles. It's very low coverage, and I don't have very dark undereyes, so it works fine for me, but if you're looking for a concealer that will cover everything, this isn't the way to go. It's pretty liquidy, and it has a citrus smell to it. The cap broke off on mines, so now it's extremely short. It can be sometimes a little oily, but it's not too bad considering the price. Definitely a very low coverage concealer, but of course different coverage levels are meant for different things. Would recommend it!
This is a great lip-balm type product! It moisturizes my lips really well, and it leaves a very glossy finish, almost like a lip gloss. I have the peppermint one, and I really want to get the tinted ones, mainly because they are raved about so much! Definitely worth the hype to me, at least for most of the flavours. Although I hear that the peach one isn't as great as the others, I think that most of them are a 5/5! Really wanna get cherry me, and grape vine. Will be repurchasing!
Top/Base Coats -Sally Hansen - Super Shine Top Coat
Hayyleyyissmee 11/12/2012 3:11:00 AM
AMAZING TOP COAT! This is an awesome top coat for putting on top of other nail polishes to make them last longer and prevent chipping. I love using this alone, just because I'm not a big fan of bright colored nail polishes, but it's great either way! Love it, and you really can't beat the price of it. Will definitely be repurchasing!
