Bronzers -Too Faced - Too Faced Leopard Love Complexion Perfection Kit

Seriously cute packaging but it's a box of glitter with no pigment. Theres a lil difference between each shade when heavily swatched but once applied to your face they all look the same and are so glittery. Honestly you have to try it for yourself but I do not rec paying full price for this at all, it's a waste for bronzer unless you like looking like a disco ball.
Brows -Maybelline - Expert Eyes Twin Brow & Eye Pencils

The shade I bought was orangey warm brown and my brows are a cool brown. It def didn't match well at all but the pencil itself stays put and applys perfect. It's not super creamy and is perfect for making single tiny lines(like you want for filling brows). It says eyeliner also on the package but you'd seriously have to tug at your skin like crazy to line your eyes with these. I would buy another shade to try someday, but will just stick with powder for now.
Cleansers -Clean & Clear - Foaming Facial Cleanser - Sensitive Skin

I was using a 10%bp wash on my face until I realized it kept my skin clear but was also aging it. So I switched to this, it's simple and gentle and I have probaly went through about 5 bottles of it so far. My skin is back to normal now and I'm very happy with it. I use it with a cleansing brush followed by the matching sensitive skin toner. It honestly has become boring to use the same wash over and over but it works.
Polishes -China Glaze - Crackle Glaze - Black Mesh

The trick is to apply this kind of thick and quickly, do not take your time and try to be super precise with it. If you do 3 seperate strokes I find that it creates a stretched out crackle that looks boring, it looks much better when it cracks in a thicker way. My fav polish underneath it is a metallic gold and then I love topping it with tiny gold sparkles. It creates a fun animal print look, I love doing this on my toes right now.
I liked this blush but hit pan on it so fast because my skintone wasn't the best match for it. I have medium tan skin with a mix of pink and yellow tones so I guess I have peachy toned skin in a way. So of course peach blush is hard for me to wear, it doesn't show up very good on me plus I think this one was sheer on top of that. I had to pack Peaches on and it never would show up in photographs. I ended up selling it. I think it would be very pretty on paler skin.
I like this shade besides the shimmer. Lately I've realized sparkley blushes aren't my favs, I'd rather keep the shimmer on my cheekbones only and wear a matte-semi matte blush. Anyways I can't take a star away for that, it's pigment is perfect and it's a great blush. I don't think you should waste time buying cheaper dupes if this is the shade you really want(like Milani Luminous or MAC Springsheen), it's so pigmented it will last for a long time, also NARS' packaging is very sleek and better done then other brands.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24/7 Eye Pencil 15 Year Anniversary Collection

Love these liners. Luckily for me they glide on nice and smooth and actually stay in place for the day. It's worth trying atleast one because smudgey eyeliner is such a pain to deal with and I've never had a pencil liner stay on like this one. Even MAC's pencils woud run on me. Chances are if you love one shade your going to want to collect more, thats when this kit is the best deal. The sharpener is perfect also, it never breaks the pencil's. Fab buy and 5 stars for sure.
Very pretty cool/neutral medium pink. It gives a healthy glow and I like that it's not full of frosty glitter. It's very pretty on medium-olive skin.
