I love this. I put it on with a stippling brush and it looks beautiful and airbrushed. I was so pleasantly surprised!
I bought this in Bodyguard, first of all. I purchased it on Hautelook a couple weeks ago. Let me tell you, this is the most disgusting product. It was orange, streaky, and impossible to blend. It was just gross. It did not cover a single thing. I looked like an oompa loompa mess after putting this on. I'm never wearing it again, NEVER. I have yellow undertones, and this is not even a close match. I'm so frustrated. At least I didn't pay full price for it.
LOVED THIS SO MUCH! The glitter was so thick and beautiful. You really do only need one coat, they're not lying to you! I haven't been this happily surprised by a glitter polish in a LONG time!
Cleansers -Noxzema - clean moisture make up removal cloths

I received this from my dad's friend as a part of a gift. I'm so glad I didn't buy this myself. The problem I have is the smell. I was almost puking when I opened the container. I could barely get it near my face without gagging. I had to use the wipe without breathing. It did remove all my makeup, but I just could not handle that smell. I showed them to my mom, expecting her to agree with me, and she thought they smelled great! I must be crazy. Hope to see more reviews on this to see if anyone agrees with me!
Polishes -Maybelline - Express Finish Nail Polish (any color)

I had extremely low hopes for this product but I was proven wrong! I only have one color (bubble pink), but I love it! It dries quickly. Better than any other nail polish I own right now. It's also a nice opaque color that lasts a decently long time. I was very impressed!
When I first tried this mascara, I didn't like it too much. It's not that it wasn't a good mascara, it was just nothing special to me. But now, it's my favorite mascara. I have heavy lashes that'll make my eyes look smaller. With this mascara it curls them up beautifully. The length it gives is great. It does give slight volume, but I think the curl is the best part of this. Love the wand as it is sooo easy to work with. It has great staying power, but it will run if you cry! I will definitely be repurchasing!
Love this lipgloss. The color is beautiful and perfect for me. I have olive skin on the lighter side. I also have fairly pigmented lips. This color is like a "my lips but better" for me. Super expensive which sucks, but a nice product to splurge on.
Love this as a tinted moisturizer. Put a translucent powder over this and it will stay on all day! I love the packaging, the pump is PERFECT! I wish the color selection was better, but it's as expected with a tinted moisturizer. The color is (most likely) not gonna be perfect on you, but you can make it work. This has a tiny bit of a sticky feel, but nothing compared to the stickiness of many other TM's I've tried. I also love the SPF 50. Major plus!
Eyeliner -L'Oreal - Carbon Black Lineur Intense Felt Tip Liquid Eyeliner

Only have used this a couple times...so far so good! I love this liner. First of all, the black is matte and extremely pigmented. It's so dark and perfect. I think the wand is super easy to work with...I love the felt-tip. I didn't have a problem with this smudging or flaking and I was out walking in the 90-something degree heat. I would definitely recommend these, but if anything changes after more uses, I will update!
I tried this after I tried Lash Blast Fusion and I liked this much more. It really volumized my lashes the way I wanted it to. I got the Very Black or Blackest Black version of the product (I forget which one it was...). It did not clump or flake on me. The only thing I would say would be not to use this product on your lower lashes. It's just not intended for that purpose. Besides that I would say that this is a great volumizing mascara for an affordable price! One of Cover Girl's best products!
I have EXTREMELY OILY lids & a really really really really wet, oily waterline compared to many people. This eyeliner smeared on both my waterline and upper lashline quite quickly. I've heard tens and thousands of rave reviews on this, however. I think that if your linds/lines aren't excessively oily, this product would work for you. It is also at a great price and can be found at any drugstore.
I've tried quite a few foundations and this is by far the best one I've ever tried! It definitely evens my skintone. The coverage is medium, so if you're buying for heavy coverage, don't get this! I top it with a translucent powder and it does not get oily on my skin at all! The staying power on this makeup is incredible. I did not expect it to be that good. The color also matches my skin perfectly, I'm in 03 Ivory
I used to wear this all the time because I didn't know any better. THIS FOUNDATION IS SO WATERY AND RUNNY. I'm warning you now, it's gross. If you don't get the fragrance free option, the smell is horrible. I would never repurchase. So many better options out there. Gave me coverage but didn't last.
Powder -Maybelline - Shine Free Oil Control Loose Powder
StephanieTaverna 6/7/2010 11:04:00 AM
I apply this product with my sonia kashuk powder brush over my foundation or tinted moisturizer. This really helps my makeup have a good staying power. It also evens everything out, which is good. I hate the packaging, with those stupid little holes at the top, haha. But, I would buy again.
Airy Fairy is a nice color in the package. But it looks god-awful on me :(. I want to like it, but it just DOESN'T work with my coloring at all. The only way I can even handle wearing this is topping it off with gloss. Even then, I still think it looks pretty bad. It settles into my lips too and makes them look kind of weird. This product just does not work with me. I've heard rave reviews though so it might just be something about my body chemistry? i don't know.
