Lipstick -Maybelline - Color Whisper in Cherry on Top

This color shows up as a bright fuschia-ish color on my lips. None of these whispers are completely opaque so they will vary depending on your natural lip color. I love these and definitely want some more.
Lipstick -Maybelline - Color Whisper - Berry Ready

Love this color. This is the most pigmented shade in the line. It reminds me of Rebel by MAC but not as dark/opaque. It's a gorgeous color that I believe is universally flattering.
Love this product! I love these more than the Revlon Lip butters. They are so comfortable. They are moisturizing but light at the same time. I only wish the color variety was a little better. I hope they turn these into a balm stain.
Bronzers -Mally Beauty - Visible Skin bronzer in Lighter

I don't find this bronzer chalky at all. It's just prefer other bronzers better. (Tarte Park avenue Princess, Rimmel sun bronze, Too Faced Chocolate Soleil) I think it's definitely overpriced and I'm glad I didn't pay for it.
This is the first new MAC lipstick I've ever had. Got it with my BACto MAC. This does stain my lips quite a bit as well but I actually like that. I think the color is great. You can press it into your lips for a more muted/fuschia color... Or apply it normally for a darker/plumy color. I've seen this color on many different skintones and have yet to see one that it doesn't compliment.
Mascara -Yves Saint Laurent - Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils

Got a mini version of this product and though it's not bad, it's definitely nothing special. IMO. It's WAY overpriced, as most products from this brand are. The brush is the standard bristle type brush. It's very large, not tapered (which I don't like). The formula itself is nice but that's about it. **UPDATE** Just noticed today that it smells very nice. I don't know why I didn't notice before. It has a unique sweet smell. Very strange for a mascara. I usually use Maybelline which has a rose-y scent. (which I also like)
Mascara -Bare Escentuals - Flawless Definition mascara

I got a mini version of this product from a friend and I love it. It's SUPER black (which I like) and the applicator is awesome. It's a plastic wand thats tapered towards the end, which makes it super easy to get those hard to reach inner lashes. It doesn't bother my eyes like most mascaras do. It doesn't flake/smudge.
Concealers -Maybelline - Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles

Tried the shades Brightener and Neutralizer... Brightener is a pinky highlight color that doesn't do much of anything for me, especially under the eyes. Neutralizer is a yellow-y color that does more for the undereye than the pink but still not impressed. Anyone know of a good concealer for undereyes that isn't super drying, but pigmented, please message me.
I've tried a couple different palettes from this line (Snapshots, Acid, Storm) I have to agree with another poster where the colors look nice in the pan but do not transfer/stay well. Regardless of what primer I use, it doesn't seem to make a difference. The color just doesn't stay on. I have dry skin so that may make a difference because I know these work lovely for some... just not me. I much prefer Wet N Wild palettes and they are much more accessible since I live in the US.
Gorgeous color but wears poorly. I may try this again sometime because my eye primer has changed.
Another shadow with bad color pay-off. Color was nice but didn't look good on.
Another one that looked nice in the pan and barely showed up on my skin. I am about as while as paper and this was barely noticable. Not a fan.
Did not care for the color, texture or the way it blended. (or lack of blend)
This is my second favorite paint pot thus far (second to Painterly) The reason it's second is because this color is more yellow while the painterly is more beige and blends in with my skin better. I use this as an eye primer for my lighter looks. (whites, nudes, etc) Great staying power. Very creamy.
Love this eyeshadow! It's a beautiful plum color that looks amazing against my blue/grey eyes. I use this to deepen the "outer V" area or all over. I feel that this color is very versitile and I would imagine most people liking it.
