I am an eyeliner addict. I just don't feel complete without dark eyeliner on my upper lid. So I've tried a bunch of gels (mac, bobbi brown, clinique,still) but I think I like this one the best. It's as creamy as cliniques and as dark as bobbi browns (can't remember the name of the darkest one). I've had it for month and have barely made a dent. best of all it hasn't dried up at all. It's still as creamy as the first day I opened it. The only thing you have to consider is that since it is so creamy you can;t really apply it near tear ducts because it ends up smearing a bit. At about $10 this is a real steal.
Love this luminizer on my NC42 skin. I have tons and tons of highlighters/luminizers and this one is truly unique. It's a golden, kinda bronzy (but not too bronzy) shade. The shimmer is very fine which I like. You only need a tiny bit to get results. Love this.
I love this blush. Ever since I got it about 2 weeks ago all my other blushes are collecting dust. On my Nc42 skin this is a perfect peachy pink. When I first swiped it with my finger I was sure it wouldn't work for me, I thought it would look too chalky on me. But I was wrong, it gives the perfect flush of color. This brand is really growing on me.
I love this duo. The peachy nude shade is matte and I use it as a base shade for most of my shadows. The golden bronze shade is gorgeous is the crease, it really makes my eyes pop. This is definitely on my most used list.

Great liner. Perfect color for daytime and nighttime looks. I usually wear black liner, but I wanted something softer and this is perfect. I think BB makes the best gel liners hands down. The consistency is perfection. It glides on smoothly and evenly without any tugging. I've had this for a long time and its still just as creamy as the first day I opened it. Other gels seem to dry out which makes application harder and less even.
Love this shade!! Everytime I wear this on my toes I get compliments on it. It's the perfect matte milky orangey peachy shade with zero shimmer.

The dark brown shade in this is a total HG for me. I LOVE it. It is a dark brown with goldish shimmer. It lookfs great as a wash or in the crease. Its smooth, easily blendable and pigmented. I never hear anything about Clinique shadows so I was very surprised when I tried this (got is as a gwp). It has become one of my most used shadows. It is the exact shade of brown I have been looking for.

When I first got this, I didnt really like it so I got rid of it. That was when I used to leave my hair curly. I recently started straightening my long curly hair and decided to give it another shot. I now *love* this. I only use it after I have already blown out and dried my hair. It works awesome at smoothing hair, decreasing frizzies, adds some shine (not the oily-looking kind) and never seems to build up in my hair. This is perfect for a quick hair fix because it easily smoothes out hair and makes it look polished. I need to buy a smaller size of this for my bag and car!
I am a highlighter/blush ho.. I can't get enough. This product is more of a highlighter than a bronzer. I wore it last night and my SO said I had a "golden glow". He almost never makes comments like that, so I was pleasantly surprised. I actually like this more than BB shimmerbricks, or TBS shimmerwaves.. I think the shimmer particles in them are a bit too big. These "bronzers" however, just give a soft glow. Of course you can overdo it if you put too much on, but with light swipes, it looks great. I even used the lightest shade individually on the inner corners of my eyes and under brows. I highly recommend these bronzers, they are definately worth the low pricetag.. I would gladly pay 5 times as much (even more). For reference I am GGG.

LOVE THIS!!! I use this every single time I blow dry my hair (use it ontop of whatever blowdry cream I use)..its light, non-sticky, smells great and is super easy to use. I really can't believe its only $3. If I ever hear its being discontinued, I will have to go to every store within a 30 mile radius (thats a lot of stores in Jersey!) and buy them all out.
Another great blush by Milani.. Soft, pigmented and beautiful. On me it looks like a coral, peach bronze mix.. very nice. It looks brown and boring in the pan, but when you wear it, its another story. Definately comparable to higher end blushes (**nars***) For less than $5 you really cannot go wrong. Try mango tango and luminous as well, they are great too.

Go out and buy this ASAP! (along with Luminous) I still can't believe this is only $4. This is on the same level as my high end blushes which cost up to 7 times as much!! It is smooth, longlasting, and super pigmented. Even with a skunk brush I have to be super careful not to overdo it. I gently touch the brush to the surface and thats all I need (no swiping). It gives me a bright pink flush of color. The shade reminds be of Pouts "Berry Babe". This is probably my favorite drugstore brand because so many of their products are as good as department store brands.
Lipstick -Victoria's Secret - Strictly Sheer Lipstick in Smart

I love the shade and the formula. As a strictly sheer it adds a sheer pink ylbb tint to your lips. I like to think of this as a tinted lipbalm because its so smooth and balmy feeling. This shade is a foolproof shade that woould be flattering on almost all skintones.
This is my first Pout purchase and I am hooked! On my tan GGG skintone this gives me a pretty pink flush. Its very soft, wonderfully pigmented and smooth. It applies very very smoothly and evenly on me. It comes in a cute round flip top container with a mirror in it. I wish Pout came out with more shades. IMO berry babe is the brighter version of cherie tarte and apricot totty is the brighter version of blossom belle.
This is a beautiful bronzey peachy shade that looks great on my tanned GGG skin. I like Cargo blushes because they are soft, pigmented and the shades are beautiful. This one is no exception. This shades warms up my cheeks and adds a beautiful glow.
