Super cheap and gets the job done. My brows stay in place all day! Also looks great on my lashes on days I go to the beach/pool and don't want to have to deal with the pain of waterproof mascara. Now I don't have to shell out the extra couple dollars on the clear Maybelline Great Lash stuff.
This lipstick is gorgeous in every single way. First off, purple tube is so glam! Secondly, the lipstick itself is the most beautiful coral lipstick I've seen. It's extremely pigmented but can also be applied to give it more of a "stain" look, which I personally prefer. I also use it as a blush occasionally. I'm very impressed with the quality of this lipstick, especially seeing how it is extremely affordable. I will repurchase this when I run out.

After seeing so many YouTube gurus raving about this lip balm, I finally caved. To be quite honest, I was a little disappointed. Yes, the packaging is really cute and the product smells nice, but it isn't all that moisturizing. It goes on really smoothly, but I feel like it just sits there on my lips and smells nice rather than actually moisturizing. I think I'll stick to my Carmex.
I saw this at the drugstore while I was looking for a blush, and it looked interesting so I picked it up. Unfortunately this did absolutely nothing for me. It did not change colour when I applied it. It pretty much just blended into my skin and I was left with no colour on my cheeks. What a waste of money.

Waterproof mascara is an absolute pain to remove, but not with this makeup remover! It is very gentle on my eyes, and almost all of my makeup is gone with one swipe. It also doesn't feel greasy at all, and doesn't sting my eyes or make them red. I have already gone through several bottles of this stuff, and I will definitely repurchase!

I got a small sample sized tube of this with my NAKED palette. Even after taking a nap in the middle of the day, my makeup stayed put. After about 8 hours my makeup looked just like it did in the morning when I applied it. I'm not a fan of the wand and doe foot applicator, but I see that the larger sized primer potions now come in a squeeze tube which is great. After trying this small sample size, I will gladly go out and spend the money on this. I think it is well worth the price.
I have the waterproof version of this eyeliner. The felt tip makes for an easy application, and the formula is easy to work with and is pigmented. My eyelids tend to get oily throughout the day, but this eyeliner still lasts. HOWEVER, it does flake and fade if you don't prime your eyes before hand or "set" the eyeliner, which I highly recommend you do. I usually apply this liner after I've lined my eyes with a pencil first, or I apply this liner and then layer the Essence gel liner on top. Overall this is a great product. It is dirt cheap for only $2.99 at shoppers drug mart. All of the essence eye products I've tried are slowly becoming my go-to products. Will buy again!
I purchased this concealer at my local drugstore for $2.99 in the shade Nude Beige. It was a little bit lighter than my skin tone, but it wasn't blatantly obvious that I was wearing concealer. It brightened up my under-eye area, as well as my eyelids. It lasted me throughout the day at school, but did crease a bit on my eyelids since they do tend to get oily. I'm so sad that I can't find this concealer in stores anymore because even though it's dirt cheap, it gets the job done. If it was still being sold, I'd definitely buy it again!

I've used this moisturizer all through high school, and I will continue to use it through college and probably after that. This stuff makes my skin feel SO soft and hydrated after I've used it, and it doesn't make my face oily. It is quite expensive, but you really do get what you pay for with this product. I use it twice a day everyday, and I still feel like it lasts me FOREVER. I think the price is well worth it. I will buy this moisturizer again and again, and I do recommend it!
Lipstick -New York Color - Ultra Moist Lip Wear in Mahogany

I absolutely LOVE this lipstick. It was less than $2, is the perfect fall/winter shade, and can be applied sheer or a little bit more opaque depending on if you're wearing it in the daytime or at night. The formula is super smooth and doesn't make my lips dry. The only drawback, like other people mentioned, is that it fades VERY quickly. I think that's a minor issue, because this lipstick has more pros than cons for the dirt cheap price.
Lip Treatments -Maybelline - Baby Lips in Cherry Me

This product is very moisturizing, and gives me the perfect amount of colour. It also smells great! I feel that paying $6 is a little much for a tinted lip balm, so I will only be buying this on sale. I will definitely repurchase.
Lips -Revlon - ColorBurst Lip Butter in Peach Parfait
NAK3Dpalette 8/1/2012 8:56:00 PM
After all the hype about this product, I decided to try it out. I saw it on sale for 7.99 as opposed to 10.99, so I picked up this shade. I like the colour, but it's more pink than peach. It's also more shimmery than I thought, so I will only be wearing this during the summer months. The packaging looks BEAUTIFUL, and I like that you can hear the cap click when it closes so you know it won't open inside your bag. The consistency is also very smooth, but also a bit grainy because there is quite a bit of glitter in it. One downside about this product is that because the consistency is very smooth, it kind of gets squished when you apply it. This means the product gets all over the opening when you twist it down.
