Lip Gloss -BeneFit Cosmetics - Ultra Plush Lip Gloss

I love these!! I have CORALista, which is the most beautiful coral lippie I own. I don't really detect shimmer, which I like, and it smells divine. I got this with my CORALista blush, and they flatter each other amazingly. The texture of this gloss is the best part; it's silky, lush, non-sticky, and feels moisturizing. The packaging is really cute; I love how the designs match the blush of the same name. I love you benefit (:
I really like these lippies, but they are definitely not HG. I have pomegranate and mango, and they are both beautiful and moisturizing. They kinda smell like honey to me, but it's very faint and nice. Pomegranate is a color that is very similar to benetint, just a bit more coral. Mango is a orangy coral which I like better out of the two. They def do the job, and keep lips looking beautiful and soft. My only complaint is thI will repurchase when these run low, but there is a lot of product so I won't be running to buy them any time soon.
I like these LB's, and they are really great for when you are on the go. The color reminds me of a less severe benetint. It is flattering and brings a brightness to my entire face. If only the little pots weren't so damn annoying... That's why I gave it a four; poor packaging. Nevertheless, they are very moisturizing and really are like silky butter. Will repurchase when it runs out, which won't be too soon.
I LOVE cha-cha tint!! This is a beautiful mango-coral color and is very flattering for my pale skin tone. I use on my cheeks and my lips, and it brings a sheer wash of bright coral to my face. This is quite different from benetint, since this is a gel while benetint is a liquid. Both of them stain really fast, so you need to work quickly when applying. I don't really like the smell though, which is a faint, artificial scent. This is really overpriced, but it was worth it and will probably last me forever.
I really like benetint. It's a pretty rose color and I like to use it on my lips as well as my cheeks. It really is very liquidy and stains very quickly, so you need to work fast. It smells like roses, which I love but might be too much for those sensitive to scents. The nail polish type container is pretty annoying, but I can't imagine it in another way. It goes on sheer at first, but builds quite nicely. Overall, this was $30, but I think it will last me a while and that it is worth it. Will repurchase when it runs out, which won't be soon.
Lips -Revlon - ColorBurst Lip Butter in Peach Parfait

I really like LB's, although I prefer Maybelline Color Whispers to them. This color is a very shimmery, peachy pink color. It is very flattering, though it has a bit too much golden shimmer for my taste.
Lipstick -Revlon - Colorburst Lip Butter in Creme Brulee
JessPotter 3/24/2013 5:53:00 PM
Although I prefer the Maybelline Color Whispers to these, Creme Brulee is a beautiful tinted balm. It is a light caramel color (think more of a shimmery beige) and is very flattering on my fair skintone. This is one of the more sheer LB's, which is great since I'm not looking for much color. It is moisturizing and soft, but not very glossy. Overall, I like this and will repurchase when it runs out.
Lipstick -Maybelline - Color Whisper in Coral Ambition

I have 6 Color Whispers, and I like this one. Coral lips are really in for Spring, so I was excited to try this one. It is sheer, though it isn't coral on my lips. On my lips, it is a baby pink with a hit of orange, which disappointed me. All shades of this product are sheer, soft, and moisturizing.
Lipstick -Maybelline - Lust for Blush Color Whisper

I have 6 Color Whispers, and I really like this one. All of them are soft, sheer, and moisturizing. This particular color is a pinky-nude, but more pink than nude. I feel that this pink may be a bit too light on my lips, as it gives me a Nicki Minaj-type look that doesn't sit well on me. Overall, I like it but am not in love.
Lipstick -Maybelline - Color Whisper in Pin Up Peach
JessPotter 3/24/2013 5:27:00 PM
LOVE Color Whispers !!! I have 6 shades (yes, I'm crazy), and this one is my favorite. It adds a great pop of color to any look, and it's a must-have Spring color. It is pretty pigmented for a tinted balm, but with one swipe comes a peachy flush of color. It is very soft and moisturizing as well. Def will repurchase when this one runs out!
Lemme just start off by saying, I LOVE this product. Not sticky, it lasts quite a while on my lips (for a gloss) and the color is beautiful. The color is the perfect nude-pink. It looks really natural, but not so much as to make you look like you are wearing nothing. I was recommended by one of the Sephora sales-people to get this color. It has no glitter, which I really like. Def repurchasing when it runs out. (:
BB Cream -Maybelline - Dream Fresh 8-in-1 BB Cream
JessPotter 3/24/2013 4:48:00 PM
This was my first experience with BB creams, and so far, I am not a fan. Although it is SPF 30, which is a plus; it was really greasy and runny. This product didn't work for me and I really expected more from Maybelline. Although it matched my skin tone beautifully, it didn't last and there is not enough product in the bottle; I expected it to be a lot bigger too. The packaging is really messy and the cap holds the majority of the product. Will not repurchase and will try something different next time.
This mascara was not a good one. Will not be repurchasing. Cons: -smudges, flakes, weird hairs on the brush. Pros: -waterproof, gives length and some volume.
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum Express The Falsies Flared
JessPotter 3/10/2013 4:53:00 PM
I like this mascara. Certainly not bad, but I have used much better ones. The formula isn't the best, but the thing I like about this is the brush. It really does make my lashes flare out, which I found very pretty. Overall, I would repurchase but it isn't really a staple in my mascara routine.
Worst. Mascara. Ever. ! The brush is far too big with hardly any space between the bristles! Clumps, smudges, flakes. Way too wet of a formula. Smells horrendous! Ugh, what a waste...
