This review is for the white package pen that has the three tips. I really dont care for this liner. When first applied its very dark black which I love. But as I laid down to let it dry and just to test how long it will last. It was smudged badly. I really wished it would last as it went on smooth and dark.
This smells like bubble gum and something else. I can't quite call it. But the scent is very calming. Go get this! Lol :-)
I love this lip butter. I have it in Raspberry Rose and the scent smell so good. I would love it better if it taste just as good as it smell. I recommend this lip butter.
I really like this concealer because it covers my under eye dark circles. I gave it a 4 because it doesn't stay all day or atleast 12 hours. I haven't tried it with a full face of foundation for 12 hour wear. I always use it with loose powder. But it gives a fresh, dewy, flawless look. And it still feel light weight. Loving this and I recommend this concealer.
I absolutely enjoy this brush. I can't explain how soft but dense this brush is. I told one of my sisters I make love to this brush with my foundation. Lol. Lately I've been wearing a dime size of Revlon Nearly Naked in medium tan mixed with Mary Kay concealer in Bronze 1 stippled over my whole face. And then I apply N.Y.X. Stay matte but not flat powder foundation in Sienna very lightly. I dust a mixture of Hersheys natural coco powder, Benefits Get Even blotting powder mashed finely in 02, and also baby powder over my face to set. This works for me. I don't have anything bad to say about this brush. I recommend for if you are looking for a very afordable brush that can be used to apply liquids, creams, or powders. I will repurchase if I have to.
Mascara -Bare Escentuals - Flawless Definition Volumizing mascara

I have to say I really like this mascara. I find that it doesnt flake or irritate my eyes while wearing this or even when I remove my makeup. I recieved this from my sister. Which is why I say its pretty expensive for a mascara because I wouldn't spend so much for a mascara. I mostly used drugstore brands like CG Lashblast, Maybelline in the fuscia color package which was very good, E.L.F. Duo waterproof and regular mascara didn't really like and I love most of E.L.F. products, and another beauty supply mascara I liked at first but flaked badly. Overall I'm impressed with this mascara.
Gels/Soaps -Dr. Bronner's - dr bronners assorted scented castille soaps
ajewelofgod 1/28/2013 9:43:00 PM
This soap is amazing for my skin in the Spring/ Summer months here in Miami. As it gets so hot I love to shower with the peppermint one. Its cool and feels so minty on my skin hours after bathing/ showering. I only tried it in the bar form. But next time I will repurchase it in liquid so I can dilute it. The bar is a little too strong for my private area. Im sensitive and it can be drying. Dial is mild so I also use that soap for that area. I think liquid is best. Because I looovvvee this soap. Its pretty expensive $3 for 1 bar $15 for a large bottle at GNC. But I love it. Also I want to try the lavendar and lemon for other things.
E.L.F. Products are very good for its inexpensive price. I like the smokey eye kit which came with false lashes, lash glue, eye liner pencil, 3 eyeshadows, and a pencil sharpener. I bought this kit from Burlington Coat Factory for around $6 dont remember. I have it in smokey brown. The 3 eyeshadows are 1: Cream 2: Grey brown with slight shine and 3: Dark Bronze Brown. Textures are very velvety and pigmented. I cant complain about E.L.F. Eyeshadows. I wont be repurchasing because these will last a long time. Besides I have the E.L.F. 100 Eyeshadow palette for $10 and it will be a while before I run out of those shadows.
Lips -Milani - Lip Flash Full Coverage Shimmer Gloss Pencil
ajewelofgod 1/28/2013 8:58:00 PM
I think this gloss pencil is perfect for all seasons depending on the shades of course. But the creamy texture is great for my lips. However, it is not a stain so you may have to touch up every few hours. I have this in 03 FLASH LIGHT a bright coral shade with tiny fine milled coral shimmers. Im waiting to wear this in Spring/ Summer as I prefer more neutrals pinks or dark reds for Fall/ Winter seasons. I did a test run through on me and its a perfect match with my NYC Shiny Lips in a Fruity flavor gloss in Park Ave Punch (same shade as Flash Light). I trully recommend this product. Full coverage or can be sheered out. Love!
This is my go to blush. I love the dewy soft pink color on my NC35/ NC40 skintone. The color can be built up to a mauvey pink like in the package but when applied light handed its a more soft pinky highlight shade. I will be repurchasing when I run out. I pray this wont be discontinuedwhen I need to repurchase. I have so much to go through and I had this for over a year. I just love love love this blush. Did I mention I love it? Lol.
I have this in Dawn and it is a nice stain. I also like the balm to prep my lips for other lipsticks. I just dont like the packaging the balm breaks easily. This color can be built from a sheer auburn color to a dark red brown lip color. I slept in it a couple of times it really stains my lips. Im not sure if Ill repurchase more. But overall I think the product is really nice. Especially for those looking for longlasting lipstains.
Powder -NYX - Stay Matte but not Flat Powder Foundation
ajewelofgod 1/27/2013 10:37:00 PM
I really like this powder foundation. I have it in SMP11 Sienna which is slightly golden but when blended with a powder brush and my Benefit Get Even blotting powder is a perfect shade. I think that its matte when first applied but 4 to 6 hrs later becomes dewy then oily. Im oily so that expected after 6 hrs. I apply moisturizer let it sink in then conceal dark circles and acne scarring using NYX Full Coverage concealer in Glow and Mac Studio Fix concealer blended (not sure what color). And then I use a D'Natures face brush with light hand with the SMBNF powder foundation and BGE in 02. Perfect match. This can be built up to full coverage however I dont need to, in my opinion. Very cheap also Dolly Pink Lipliner pairs well with it. Loving NYX products.
I got this foundation last night from Walmart for $7 and some change. I got it in the shade Medium Beige which is a perfect match. I was using a beauty supply foundation Kiss New York Acne Cover + Care foundation in NC40 and Ruby Kisses Face Creator in Level09 some days. Both were natural photographed well and blurred my small imperfections. So as I ranned out of those this week I began to research Revlon colorstay Almay and many more. But I picked this up because I found my match easier than I could with colorstay to be honest. I was going with Colorstay originally because I read that its longlasting. I leturgy and praise dance. I wanted to last through my sweating. But this Nearly Naked is pretty impressive. It blends beautifully and while sweating it still looks nice. It didnt oxidize. Very light weight. Feels refreshing in sort of a tropically citrus mint way. I will repurchase and recommend. I just wish it came with a pump though.
This review is for the Mint and Gold eye brush set. It has 4 brushes in this set. I really like these brushes and I just got them. So cheap, very soft, and cute mint blue and gold handles. I trully recommend.
Overall its a okay product. It blends well. It does mattify but the packaging was horrible for me. It breaks very easy. I wouldn't buy it because Im going to try maybe some other pressed powders.
