I actually really liked this product. I find it's comparable to lash blast.
This mascara I got in as a sample with purchase at Clinique. I wanted to like it so bad since it's the closest thing I've ever came to a high end mascara because I usually only shop drugstore. This did almost nothing for my lashes, it wilted them more than if I just left my lashes free of mascara, it flaked, it would smudge everywhere the minute it was around moisture. All that being said, with two coats it did have a better look to it curling wise (which is what I need), but this is for sure a more daytime mascara and I would recommend it to people who like a less dramatic look. This just wasn't for me. I did however used it until it was dry just to give it a fair chance as I do with all my mascaras.
I loved this brush up until I had lost it a couple weeks ago. Thinking about buying a new one and just in case the other turns up having two. I love this brush for eyeshadow!

I got this mascara because I heard it did fabulous things for curling, if nothing else. And at first I hated it. It clumped, and gooped everywhere. After a while I really got the hang of it, and I never realized at first how much of a difference it made. What I do is wipe off a lot of the product gathered on the long side of the brush and on the sides, but keep it on the stubby side. Then apply only with the long side until your almost done and just brush the short side over the very tips of your lashes. It gives me fantastic curl that HOLDS. This could infact replace my love of lashblast, but I'm not sure yet.
I love this polish for french tips and building it up to a milky colour :) The wear of this is average, and it applies wonderfully. Every time I wear it i try to play a game with myself to find exactly what 'off white' substance the bubble bath colour is. I've tried holding up to sooooo many ceramic sinks and such. Very classic, a must have for me.
Okay, so, there's a couple things I need to say before getting on with my review. A) My name is Cheyenne, so this nail polish I had to buy, and I would love just because of the whole sharing names deal . B) My first OPI polish :D Now for the review. The colour itself isn't overly interesting, but still pretty. It's like a warm brown cream with super-mirco shimmers of orange and red, making the colour even warmer. Very opaque, so easy to work with, dried super quick, and good wear so far. Swimming in lakes that are lined with rocks tend to rip apart my polish, and about an hour and a few handstands later my polish on my fingers and toes were looking super fresh. That is a major acomplisment. I'm deffinitly impressed, and happy that OPI stands up to all the hype. I'm buying more from them for sure.
Polishes -New York Color - In a New York Color Minute Quick Dry Nail Polish

I have this in SoHo (a light pearly pink), and Mulberry Street (a light pearly nude/gold). While these require multiple coats to get the colour in the bottle, these are relatively quick drying, gorgeous, and last a long time. You may need to touch up a bit, but that's okay. These aren't perfect, but for some reason I'm completely in love with this line of polish.

I'm obsessed with these lipglosses. While they don't deposit much colour (I love the colour of my lips, so I'm not looking for colour anyways), they smell AMAZING. I feel in love with this one. My friend who owns the same one pointed out it tasted like froot loops, and I noticed it kind of does. As with me saying it doesn't leave much colour, it has a slight orange-bronze shimmer to your lips, which I really like.
I love the colour range on this nail polish company, and the wear is really nice too! Application is a breeze. The glitter nail polish's are AMAZING. I have the purple-blue glitter, and it looks absolutely amazing layered over a white nail polish, like a birthday party. I also have this in Canary Yellow, which is like a bright yellow, with a muddy-orange ness to it, mainly yellow though. It's a really nice creme colour
Pressed Powders -New York Color - Pressed Translucent Powder

I love this stuff. I don't use it daily, and I'm not much of a powder person, but this stuff is everyone else says it is and more. Although it isn't completely tranluscent, it works well to lighten slightly dark foundations, which is kind of what I use it for, and to set my concealer. I also find it gives a little bit of coverage. I love this stuff.
Looking at comments/reviews of this product I feel so shocked. This is my HG foundation. I have already gone through one of these, it makes me look soo flawless. I apply it with those cheap make-up sponges, not foundation brushes, and that might be why people are having problems with this. I tried applying it with brushes, and it didn't go on well. I find this gives great coverage, works well with combination skin (because it's neither a liquid or powder), doesn't break me out at all, lasts all day, and conceals blackheads like no body's business. I feel so bad for those people who didn't have the results I did. It seems like almost like a shame for me to imagine someone not getting the great results I did with this. So best of luck on your foundation journey's if this didn't work on you.
As others have said, it doesn't smell a whole lot like coconut. And that is why I bought it. I don't like the smell of coconut, that's why me and my mom were so surprised when I bought it. I love this scent so much. It lasts a decently long time. It's very tropical, flirty and deffantly fun. Great for everyday, which is how I use it.
I bought my first eyeshadow from AnnaBelle about a week ago. I'm deffantly collecting things from this brand from now on. The pigmentation is great, great colours, and a great price. On top of all that CANADIAN: amazing.
I actually got this free with CoverGirl Lash Blast, for about the same price as normal Lash Blast. I generally wouldn't pick up a brow pencil because I like my brows and I don't feel the need to fill them in. But I'm glad I got this as a free extra. It works fairly well, complements my skin tone/brow color, doesn't look like I'm wearing a brow pencil at all. I love it. As eyeliner I must say it's terrible, as brow pencil it exceeds my expectations. Deffantly re-purchasing this.
This is an alright product. I do like the colour, in the pan and on my eyes. I don't own any greens really, and I wanted a good starter and I got it. I've had better and I've had worse.
