Lipstick -Revlon - Luxurious Living Lipstick - Blase Apricot 215

I bought this because I read on the Lucky Mag website that it is the perfect apricot shade that works for every skin tone. It's a fun color, but it's a bit orange on my very pale skin. It is also drying. You absolutely can't wear it without some kind of lip balm and even then in less than an hour I had flaky lips. With such a bright color it was especially noticeable. I won't buy again.
I love this color! I have dark brown, stubborn hair and this turned it into a very pretty auburn. It actually came out a bit redder then it looks on the box. For dyeing my hair so well it was gentle. I've been having a lot of trouble with my hair shedding like crazy and this dye did not make it worse at all. My only complaint is the conditioner. It was kind of weird - I have very short hair and it didn't seem like there was enough. It didn't spread through my hair very well. I ended up spraying a ton of leave in conditioner in it while it was wet because I didn't have much confidence in the conditioner.
Moisturizers -Olay - Moisture Therapy Cream- Sensitive Skin [DISCONTINUED]

I absolutely love this lotion and I'm worried it has been discontinued! I have very sensitive skin and this is the only thick cream that hasn't made me break out. It is very moisturizing and won't make you break out no matter how much you use. I ordered it in bulk awhile ago because I was having trouble finding it and now I can't find it on the internet either.
This product made my hair coarse and kind of sticky and the ends ratty after I straightened it. I only used it once so I can't tell if it actually protected my hair from damage, but I don't plan on using it again
Mascara -Christian Dior - DiorShow Mascara Waterproof

This is a great mascara. It made my short lashes look much longer and fuller. But I am going to try the non-waterproof version. The waterproof Diorshow is absolutely impossible to get completely off. I would not buy it again for that reason.
I absolutely love this foundation. It covers beautifully, and is so easy to use. It also has a nice sheen to it, not too matte. I have two problems with it though. It is very expensive, and I've had trouble with the spray can. It will stop and start spraying, and will sometimes stop all together. I've only had it a month and it already seems to be empty. As much as I love the foundation I won't be buying it again. It's way too much money to spend once a month, especially if the sprayer is going to break halfway through a can of $60 foundation.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero

This is the first of the 24/7 eyeliners I've bought, and when I first put it on I was really excited. I glides on perfectly, and smudges great, but about 5 minutes after putting it on it had smeared on my upper lids. I do have hooded lids, so if you don't have that problem then I would recommend this.
I wanted to try this after all the good reviews, but after using it for a day and a half i start breaking out. And not little zits, the painful, huge ones that are under the skin and you can't really do anything about. So I returned it. I have extremely oily skin, and the studio fix did help with shine, but didn't nix it completely, and it dried my skin out in places. And you definitely can't layer it like you're supposed to be able, it starts to get cakey.
This is the first time I've bought eyeshadow from Stila, and I'm so happy with it. It's the first eyeshadow that hasn't creased at all .It goes on pretty sheer, I bought "Jade", a pretty, shimmery green. You have to buy a seperate container along with the eyeshadow, which is annoying, even if it is only $2, you'll have to buy one for every eyeshadow pan you buy.
