One of my go to items. I use this every single day! I can use it over foundation or with none if im feeling lazy haha. It never looks cakey and always freshens me up during the day. Will repurchase for as long as it is sold!

So far, I love this. I had it applied at Sephora and have yet to find any cons. I usually have issues with finding foundations that match my skin, but found a perfect match in 110 (i have very light skin, but with yellow undertones). MUFE has an amazing spectrum of colors. I have had the foundation on for 7 hours so far, and it still looks great! Covered all blemishes or discolorations in my skin (including redness, which is very difficult for me as my nose tends to get red!). I tend to get a tiny bit oily on my forehead throughout the day and so far, I have seen no signs of this. The Sephora rep DID apply it a bit too heavy for my liking, which it seems maybe some fine lines on my face are more visual than usual (ill have to see if this changes when i apply it as I usually would). So far, that's my only complaint. I will edit this in a couple of days with my final verdict!
I LOVE this scent. I purchased it on sale at Sephora for 20.00 in the bottle shaped like a big lighter (which is super awesome, by the way). The other bottle style is gorgeous as well! I tend to like scents that are more 'dark' and less girly/sweet, ect. As for staying power...so far, so good! I've had it on for almost 5 hours and can still smell it on myself. The only reason im giving a 4 for packaging is because sometimes its a bit difficult to get it to spray...but otherwise, no complaints. I will def. repurchase this when I run out!
This is pretty much the only mascara I use now. I LOVE it. I already have very long eyelashes, and this mascara just makes them insane. People actually ask me if I'm wearing fake lashes. I also live where it is very humid, and not once has this rubbed off, flaked, or smudged AT ALL. It is not too hard to get off with a good makeup remover or good soap.....and it is always weird seeing fibers running down your face- but otherwise, no complaints! My holy grail of mascaras.
Love after party. I use it when its really humid out to keep my hair from getting too bulky. Also great when your hair just needs to be tamed. Also love the smell and the cute bottle...I love pink packaging!

Love the look of the bottle, very highend looking. One of the only hair sprays that keeps my hair in place and doesn't weigh it down (i have fine hair). Love the way it smells too!
One of my every day pigments. I generally use this as a highlighter on my cheekbones, or under my eyebrows and in the corner of my eyes. Goes with everything! One of my all time favorites. I've been using it for about 7 years now!
One of my all time favorites. I get compliments every time I wear this...especially love doing it with a dark brown in the crease and a winged black liner. Perfect for going out!
Not a fan of shatters/crackles in general...but this one is just :(. The color is too sheer, and did not crackle very well over any polishes i put it on. Looked very sloppy. Will not purchase again.
No need to explain. This is a great eyelash curler...I just wish it had no cage! Otherwise, no complaints.
The UD naked palette has been the love of my life for neutrals. I had been wanting it forever, and finally my stepmom gave me one for my birthday. As someone who generally does not buy palettes (i hate having doubles of colors..haha) I am EXTREMELY pleased with it. I notice I use it more than anything else I own. I wish the packaging was not velvet though, as it can get very dirty. Otherwise, I love it. Def. worth the $!
Duwop lip venom is my go to gloss. I love the smell, the tingle, the color (or lack there of..haha), how long it lasts and the packaging. I actually keep mine in original packaging in my purse! Price is a little high for the size, but i will continue to buy it.

I LOVE this perfume. It smells amazing and lasts all day. I love the packaging, although i wish it was a bit more secure to keep from leaking (especially when i want to bring it with me). The price is fine, considering i got the row of perfumes for 10.00...not sure if i would pay full price for this though!
My favorite perfume. It makes me feel pretty every time I put it on. I love the packaging, although it is not good for traveling or bringing in your purse...otherwise, no complaints. Price is good for a bottle of its size (compared to other perfumes at least). I payed 20 for mine, and it's lasted me about a year now (with still half a bottle left). Love love love!
Surprisingly, I love this brush. Coming from having nothing but more expensive brushes, this one surprised me. It works great for the bronzer I use (keep in mind i am very light skinned and apply things with a LIGHT hand). This works great for ME, but if you have a blush that needs to be packed on or darker skin, it may not be the brush for you.
