Pressed Powders -Maybelline - EverFresh Pressed Powder

As far as quality goes, I would give this five lippies. It goes on very smoothly, and covers well enough that I don't need foundation under it while still looking natural. Also, it lasts better than most other powders I've tried. My only problem is the shades it comes in. Ivory, the lightest shade (there is one that comes before it in number, called Translucent Fair, but it is darker than Ivory for some reason) is still too dark for my pale skin. However, I still use it because the powder itself is so nice.
Pressed Powders -Maybelline - Shine Free Pressed Powder

I hated it. It gave no coverage at all, and it went on really chalky. Also, the lightest shade they had was still WAY too pink for my pale skin, even though it looked light enough in the compact. However, the worst thing about it, which is suprising, is the fact that this powder made my face greasier than anything else I have ever used in my life. It made my face so oily, it felt slimy to the touch. I have a problem with shine, but had never experienced anything like this. At the end of the day, I went straight home, washed my face and threw it in the trash. Awful.
I love this shampoo.... my hair is incredibly thick and very wavy at the ends, but it is also very fine and gets frizzies and flyaways. This shampoo helps straighten out the ends and makes my hair flatter (for me, a VERY good thing.) It also makes it shiny, which I love. The smell and lather aren't anything spectacular, so thats why it only gets four lippies, but I still think its a great shampoo. Will definitely continue buying.
I wear this eyeshadow every day, and I love it. I have really pale skin, and this is the only brown shade I've ever found that isn't so light that it barely shows up or so dark that I look ridiculous. The color is very shimmery and warm and rich. I've worn this shade since I was 16, and plan to for many more years. It stays as well as any other eyeshadow I've ever used, even expensive ones, and doesn't flake when I put it on. A solid 5 in my book.
I've used the fragrance-free version of this since junior high, and I still love it. Its great for setting foundation and for midday touch-ups. I have super oily skin, and this gets rid of the shine without getting clumpy or smudgy. I also love the shade selection - most makeup's lightest shade is still too dark for me, but this powder in Ivory works perfect. I'm giving it a 4 instead of a 5 because if you put it on skin that has not been moisturized well, it can look chalky and accentuate the dry spots. But, as long as you moisturize first, or wear foundation underneath, it goes on beautifully.
Mascara -Maybelline - Great Lash Mascara Waterproof

I have used this for a pretty long time, and am quite happy with it. Yes, it is difficult to remove, but if you just take a minute to clean gently with a good makeup remover, it doesn't pull out any lashes. I always had horrible problems with mascara running and flaking; I wear contacts and am always messing with my eyes because they get irritated, which causes mascara smudging. However, with Great Lash, it stays put all day. Definitely worth the extra effort at night to remove - its way more convienent than trying to fix raccoon eyes all day long. Also, I like the way its not too thick or clumpy - very natural looking. I would recommend this to anyone, not only for the quality but the price - $3.49.
