Lipstick -Revlon - ColorBurst Lip Butter in Tutti Frutti

Beautiful bright orange, perfect for spring and summer. Is well pigmented, but does not last the longest on the lips. Very smooth and moisturizing, like all the other lip butters.
Lips -Revlon - ColorBurst Lip Butter in Peach Parfait

A good, neutral everyday shade that works well with everything. Is both moisturizing like a balm and pigmented like a lipstick. Feels a bit grittier than some on the matte lip butters due to its shimmer, but isn’t significant.
Primer/ Corrector -E.L.F. - Mineral Infused Face Primer

A personal dupe for Smashbox Photo Finish Primer! Has the same velvety smooth feel for so much cheaper. Does not break me out, and helps my foundation go on a lot smoother over bumpy areas.
Very smooth primer that makes all my foundations work well on my skin. Helps even out my skin and let my foundation cover my acne areas better without breaking me out even further. Unfortunately, it’s very pricey, and the ELF Mineral Face Primer is a good dupe for it.
The perfect “my lips but better” color. Very wearable and pigmented, but can be drying on the lips.
Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel in Blacktrack

One of the best gel liners out there for me. It lasts all day on my super oily lids. Very pigmented and is a nice consistency to work with. Honestly, no complaints about this.
Eye Shadow -Victoria's Secret - Beauty Rush Wet/Dry Shadow

The colors are very pigmented and work well both wet and dry. Very versatile, and is well worth the price you pay if you take advantage of their 4 for $20 deal. Okay staying power and the colors show up fine without a primer.
Eye Shadow -E.L.F. - brightening eyeshadow quad - drama

The eyeshadows are pigmented, but they’re also powdery and messy to work with. The staying power isn’t that great for people with oily lids, even when used with an eyeshadow primer.
Great kit if you’re just starting out with makeup! The eyeshadows are a bit hit and miss, but most of them are quite pigmented. The lip sticks and lip glosses and wonderful, and the blushes and powders are very pigmented. The brushes and mascara are pretty much useless, but that’s expected of any kits with brushes.
Lips -E.L.F. - Luscious Liquid Lipstick - Perfect Pink

The color is a vibrant, light pink that is very wearable and is versatile. Like the other lipsticks, the formula is a bit sticky, but I don’t really mind the stickiness. The applicator may seem strange, but I actually quite liked it. For the price, it’s a great product.
Lip Gloss -E.L.F. - Luscious Liquid Lipstick in Baby Lips
JeniRyder 11/22/2012 3:13:00 AM
This is a sheer, slightly pink color that is not very pigmented. The formula is on the stickier end, so if you don’t like sticky lip glosses, steer clear of this. The sponge-ish applicator on this may seem strange, but it does its job well and is actually a pretty good applicator. Overall, the product is well worth the money you pay for it.
A very good foundation is you have super oily skin. Lasts all day for me, even without a primer, and still isn’t incredibly shiny by the end of the day. And I mean ALL DAY. This stuff doesn’t come off until you want it to come off. Be warned though, this product dries fast so you would have to work pretty fast, and it can look cakey.
Mascara -Cover Girl - Lash Blast Volume Waterproof

Cons: • A bit hard to remove • Large brush is hard to work with for those with smaller eyes. Pro: • A lot of product for the buck • Does a good job in both lengthening and volumizing.
Added a good amount of length, but did not do much volumizing. Made lashes feel a bit stiff and was a bit hard to take off, but held curl very well. The thin wand works well for smaller eyes, as well as getting those inner corner lashes and bottom lashes.
I liked the brush that this had since it was small and easy to work with on my small eyes, but the formula left much to be desired. Overall, this was just an okay mascara, good if you don’t want anything super dramatic. Held curls but left lashes feeling a bit stiff.
