I like the twist up, crayon eyeliners a lot. But this trio just didn't work for me. I didn't twist it up too high or anything, but the product breaks a lot. I wouldn't recommend them!

The packaging on the eos products is to die for! I think that the packaging is the number 1 reason why eos lip products became sooo popular. But the actual product itself doesn't moisturize my lips at all. The product is very "hard" and doesn't glide on easily. The taste is alright, but I've had better,
I like this product a lot! It's only $1. And although it doesn't work quite as good as UDPP, it is still a great great primer. It makes my shadows last all day!

I picked up this product because I had seen it in many makeup collections. I use it over my udpp, but it still ends up creasing about 2 hours after I apply it. I know so many people who rave over this, but it feels really oily on my eyelids, even with the primer and set with an eyeshadow.
This is my new go-to mascara. It's a wet formula with a big brush. The wand can get a little messy and the smell isn't the best, but the product itself if amazing. I love the big, volumized look it gives my lashes and it's the only mascara that lengthens and volumes at once. I would recommend it to anyone!
This product lasted me about 9 months. I like the coverage, but I feel like it's a bit drying. If you are going to use this product you must wear some sort of a moisturizing under eye cream. I feel like this is a good product, but I have less expensive concealers that I prefer to this one. I do like the packaging though! The twisting tube makes it super easy on the go.
I love this bb cream. I went to Sephora to pick up the Smashbox BB Cream, but they didn't have the color that I needed. The associate recommended the Dior one to me and I fell in love. I use it everyday. I feel like this is a great product for someone who is younger and might not need super heavy coverage and who wants a dewy, natural glow. I love how it evens out my skintone and doesn't rub off throughout the day.
I was excited to try out my Colossal Volum' Express mascara, but I was really disappointed in the quality. The wand is hard for me to use for some reason. It's really small or something. I normally get my mascara in brown, because I'm so fair and stuff. So I got this in Brown, but it looks super black! I look like a raccoon with it on!! The mascara was NOT volumizing.

I got this as a present from my parents, and I really love it! It's not the highest quality, but it certainly works. As long I have a nice, good-coverage primer on, it lasts until after school and stuff. Some of the colors are super bold & highly pigmented, while others are just more neutral. I love this palette because I can open it up and find every shade that I need. I use some of the lighter colors as my brow bone highlight, and it works very well! Overall, I liked this product. I might buy it again, but I like to try out new stuff so I don't end up buying something twice very often.
