This product just didn't work for me. I read all the reviews, and seeing as they were, for the most part, all positive i decided to buy it. What a waste. Im very pale, and this does nothing for me. The first time i used it my skin was a little less ghostly white but i wasn't 'tan' and my face didn't look any darker. I've been using this for months on my face at night after exfoliating, but no color at all shows up. I wish i could return it for the bronzer by clarins that is actually supposed to make you face 'really tan'. Unfortunately i can't and i don't know what to do with it since it doesn't work.
I really like the formula of this concealer, but unfortunately i bought the wrong color. In the store it looked alot lighter in the tube but on my skin it turned orange and I couldn't blend it out to make it lighter, so I assume it's quite full coverage. I might be willing to try it in a lighter shade once i use up the concealers i have, because i do like the formula because it feels really lightweight and isn't cakey.

I absolutely love this color! I wear it everyday to school because it's just the perfect pink nude color and it just looks so pretty on! I don't find this formula very sticky at all either, I actually find it much less sticky then some other colorburst lipglosses I have. It lasts about 4 hours without reapplying, on me. I've tried this lipgloss on a few of my friends, and it looks great on all of them! so i would say that this lipgloss would work very well for many different skintones!

I've only had this concealer for a day and I can already tell that this is one of my favorites! I have it in the shade light and it blends perfectly into my pink undertone, medium skin. This cover's very well and my spots are already starting to look less red! This doesn't get very cakey either and I can easily layer it for more coverage!
I really love this lip gloss! it's extremely pigmented and the color really suits my nc25 skin! I do feel that this may not be the right shade of red for lighter skin-tones, though, but I may stand corrected. As I said, this gloss is extremely pigmented and what you see in the tube is what you really get on the lips, don't worry about it sheering out (although you can dab it on your lips for a wash of healthy color, which is what I do for school)! Overall I would definitely buy this again, although I feel as if this tube will last me forever! I took off one lippy because it tends to be a bit sticky compared to my favorite Revlon super lustrous lip gloss, but the color last forever on the lips, so this doesn't bother me too much unless i'm outside with my hair down and it's windy :P!
I bought this product at walgreens for under 3$, and wasn't expecting it to be very good, seeing how cheap it was. WOW, was I wrong! I love this eyeshadow trio! It's extrememely versatile, non chalky and the colors are very pigmented and long lasting especially under a primer. I really love the white in this trio, it's my go to browbone highlight for any look that I do, it's just the perfect highlight! The lighter brown is also a great everyday lid color and also can be used in the crease, while i mainly use the dark brown as liner and in the outer corner! Even if this trio cost 20$, I would still buy it over and over again, because the colors are just so perfect for that natural, everyday eye look which I love to wear!
Pressed Powders -Cover Girl - Clean pressed powder - Sensitive skin

I bought this powder quite a while ago, actually it may have been the first face powder I ever bought. This powder broke me out pretty bad, on my cheeks forehead and chin. This powder was also really chalky and never seemed to completely blend into my skin leaving a weird and noticeable (extremely unnatural) powdery finish, almost like it hadn't been blended out all the way even though it had.
I can't stress how much I hate this product. I bought this to clear up some acne, and to keep it away, on my face and on my chest. When I first started using this I noticed my skin was actually clearing up. But by the end of the first week, i was getting clogged pores (on face and chest; this clogged almost every pore on my chest with yellow-brown gunk) and a rash all the way down my jawline, on my cheeks and near my mouth (places i have NEVER broken out before) which caused constant irritation and made me scratch my face often. I have also noticed that this product made the acne on my chest spread almost down to my bellybutton. I am also getting more acne on my chest as well as big white bumps there to. Another thing that annoys me to no end was the price. My mother really wanted to find me something that would keep my face clear and she only bought this because she had heard that it worked, but we just ended up wasting 30$ on an awful, irritating product that has left my once smooth and soft skin bumpy and irritated in only 5 DAYS. I am NEVER trying proactiv again and will NEVER recommend it to anyone.
I have the precious metals quad and I can't get over how much I hate it. Even underneath UDPP, it starts to crease in less than 20 minutes, I don't even have oily eyelids!! The colors barely show up on me either, I just look like im wearing shimmer with the lighter colors, and shimmer with a light, almost dirty looking, tint with the darker shades. The only reason that I gave this product 2 stars is that it works okay as an inner corner highlighter (only the lighter shades), and the colors look pretty in the packaging, just not when you apply them, they are way too sheer seeing as you can't build them up because of their crazy creasing abilities.
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Color Tattoo 24hr Cream Gel Shadow

I am extremely impressed! Having bought this product on the way home from school, and trying them out almost immediately, I have to say, these are definately up to par with my benefit cream shadows. I do not own any MPP so I can't make any other comparisons. But they are gorgeous! I bought two, audacious asphalt and bad to the bronze. I AM SO GLAD I BOUGHT THESE. When they first came out, I heard mixed reviews, but I have almost nothing bad to say. They are very pigmented, easy to blend and they haven't creased yet(I applied them about an hour ago)! My only complaint is that it is hard to layer the colors without accidently rubbing off a little of the color underneath it, creating a somewhat patchy effect, thought that doesn't bother me much, seeing as I most likely wont be layering them often. Maybe waiting for each layer to 'dry' before putting another color of the cream shadow on top will help.

This product was so so. After purchasing the maybelline gel liner and loving it, I expected alot from this liner, especially since it was loreal, which runs quite expensive where I live. Unlike my maybelline liner which is totally smudgeproof, budgeproof and looks the same at the end of the day as it did when I first put it on, by lunchtime this eyeliner is flaking and smudging into my crease. I don't have oily eyelids. I've decided since that I do sports after school that I will stick to my maybelline for school (because of longwear purposes) and use my loreal on the weekend and when I go out for only a couple hours. I would like to somehow use it up, since i've heard that its container makes it dry out quickly and i don't want it to go to waste especially since I paid 15$ for it. Also the brush it comes with is completely useless for this eyeliner. The eyeliner is very creamy and needs a soft brush for application. I feel like the brush it comes with is useless for any eyeliner because it is very scratchy and hurts my eyelids whenever I use it.
Pressed Powders -Maybelline - Dream Matte Pressed Powder

I love this powder! I bought this when I ran out of my bareminerals mineral veil, and to be honest I had no idea what to expect, but I LOVE THIS! I don't use foundation because I don't need full coverage, so I use a moisturized and dust this over the top. It gives me just the amount of coverage that I need and my skin looks flawless. It gives the most beautiful matte finish without drying my skin. My only complaint is that the packaging is a bit awkward and that I would much rather it come with a little brush (I mean who uses those powder puff things anyways), but overall, you get a lot of product for the price and I will definately be repurchasing. Other reviewers have said that they noticed glitter in this powder, I have not seen any glitter in my powder, and if it is there, its extremely un-noticable.
Eyeliner -Maybelline - Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner

I bought this product on a whim because i've never owned a gel liner and have wanted to try one for so long. At first I really liked it, it was creamy and had a usable brush. But now, about 2 months after buying it, its pretty much dried up beyond the point of actual use. Instead of being creamy/ gel-like, it has the consistency of a dried up cream shadow, which results in hard application and fall out...I thought that was only supposed to happen with eyeshadows. But keeping in mind that the one i bought is the purple with shimmers, i might try the black one (without shimmer) eventually and it might not dry out so quickly.
I'd heard a lot about these lip butters and when I saw them recently in my local cvs, I just had to buy one. I bought sweet tart, and it is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! It looks amazing with my skin tone and makes my lips look gorgeous, plump and healthy. My only complaints are that it doesn't moisturize as much as I was hoping (but it does moisturize more than a lipstick while still giving great pigmentation) and that it really doesn't come with that much product, and being a teenager with minimal money to spend, found it kind of pricy. When i bought the maybelline baby lips I was so surprised with how much product you got for the price, this, not so much. I also really like the packaging, it reminds me a lot of more high end products.
