I'm surprised at seeing negative reviews! Maybe they aren't real Z palettes? Mine doesn't feel cheap and the magnets are strong, I will definitely be repurchasing a few more.
Masks -Freeman - Feeling Beautiful - Facial CLAY MASK Avocado & Oatmeal
aliengirrl 6/2/2013 5:46:00 PM
Usually I just buy the individual packets for my face masks but decided I might as well just get a bottle/jar. So I picked this up and I'm soo glad I did! This really does clean out your pores, after one use you can definitely see a difference. Your face feels so smooth and clean after and putting it on is also pleasant creamy and cooling. I'm not really loving the scent but it's not a big deal. Will be repurchasing for sure.
Looooooooove this palette!! Beautiful colors, pigmented, soft and a lot of product. It comes with a matte grey smudge stick that really compliments the colors in this palette. If you're looking for a good matte neutral eyeshadow palette with a tiny twist, look no further!
Eye Shadow -Hard Candy - Feelin Blue eyeshadow set
aliengirrl 5/26/2013 12:50:00 AM
If I could give this a 0 I would. The only positive thing about this palette is the pretty colors and cute case and some colors have good pigmentation. I'll start the negative with this, they are grainy, dusty, sandy and just ew in texture. They don't blend well at all, you really have to work on it so not good for beginners. When I first got this I hadn't used it for a week and decided to do my friends make up with blues.. well bad idea, there was A LOT of fallout and when the darker colors do fall out have fun trying to get them off, it had taken us almost 15 minutes trying to get the stuff off her face with makeup remover, soap and coconut oil (what?). The next morning she let me know that she couldn't get the eye shadow off... an eyeshadow stain how appealing? (she did end up getting it off thank god!) I hate throwing things away but I won't be keeping it and definitely not going to give it away and let someone else get stained eyelids! I've tried A LOT of not so good eyeshadow (and products) but this is hands down THE worst. Don't buy this you have been warned!
Pressed Powders -Rimmel - Stay Matte Pressed Powder (ALL)
aliengirrl 5/22/2013 11:29:00 PM
LOOOVE thiiisss. I don't really own a lot of Rimmel except for one of their lipsticks.. I heard A LOT of awesome reviews so I picked it up in translucent (I will be going to buy a colored one as well) I really like the smell, reminds me some what of aloe maybe? It feels soft if you touch it and soft on the skin and looks nice! Lasts a long time, will definitely be repurchasing! I'm not a fan of the casing tho, I wouldn't be carrying this around in my bag I'd be scared the lid would come off and get powder everywhere.
Lip Gloss -L'Oreal - Colour Caresse Shine Stain / Shine Caresse

UPDATE: These made my lips peel like crazy. Took it off at the end of the night and used lipbalm before bed as they they felt dry, woke up in the morning and literally had an entire layer of skin coming off. I have a love hate relationship with this product. I like how it's 30 percent water and I love the colors and the staying power, and how you're able to drink & eat without worrying BUT... The pigmentation is horrid, I literally have to layer 4 times to get a decent color (it isn't difficult to layer as some mention but still, 4 times?!) It also goes on feeling like water which I like but then it turns sticky and slightly uncomfortable, when wearing this you will KNOW you have something on your lips but meh you get used to it. I hit no for repurchase because it didn't have a "maybe" option and as of right now I'm not sure these are worth the 14 dollars...
I have quite a bit of wetnwild eyeshadow trios,, 8-pan palettes and such. Honestly for the price they are great but I feel that the quality and pigmentation isn't consistent with these. Some are chalky and not as pigmented were others are very soft and very pigmented. I do like these and probably will buy more just some colors are lacking, but I shouldn't be complaining considering they are soo cheap.
Lipstick -Lime Crime - Candyfuture Lipstick - All Shades
aliengirrl 5/10/2013 9:56:00 PM
UPDATE: The more I buy the more I see that not all of them have the same consistency, some aren't as pigmented and opaque as claimed to be. A good update, a few of them aren't as soft and breakable as others! Still do like these though. I "like" these lipsticks, not love. They smell nice and go on nice (I didn't find them to be streaky at all), and are extremely pigmented as advertised plus I adore the colors and the packaging. I can't decide if the cons out do the pros. They're very soft and if not handled verry gently will break. They're a bit drying and staying power... not amazing. I probably will end up getting more as I'm not terribly bothered by the drying and having to be gentle, but for the price you'd expect more!
Although I do really like this palette I just probably won't use it enough to repurchase. The colors are pretty (especially wave) but are a bit chalky. Decent pigmentation, cute package.
Absolutely love this! Foxy is the best blending shade I've ever used. Beautiful colors! Nice pigmentation, and they are actually hard to get off with an eye primer! Some of the do have fallout if the brush isn't really soft. The brush that comes with it isn't the best... nothing to say that hasn't already been said!
Eye Shadow -Essence - happy hour metallic effect eyeshadow
aliengirrl 4/20/2013 7:10:00 PM
Yes Eye Can & Black Goddess. I was actually looking for Disco Queen and couldn't find it so I picked these two up. I totally have a thing for silver and black eye shadows. These are SO pigmented and verrry cheap (I think like 3 dollars?) Yes Eye Can is almost a metallic shimmery silver and Black Goddess is light black maybe on the dark grey/black color with LOTS of sparkle. They last a good amount of time as well. UPDATE: Black Goddess has A LOT of fallout.
I like this product especially for the price. As it seems this is probably better for people who don't have oily lids. For me it works good, doesn't crease, my eye makeup lasts all day. It goes on really good with a brush and even fingers. I don't really have anything bad to say and for 3 dollars you can't really go wrong.
Lotions/ Creams -Unlisted Brand - EXTRA VIRGIN Coconut Oil (All brands)
aliengirrl 4/18/2013 9:46:00 PM
LOVE THIS! I use it for literally EVERYTHING. Face/body/hair moisturizer, blemish spot treatment, shaving cream, makeup remover, nail treatment, seriously everything. I'm not to big on how it tastes but I didn't get it for that anyway. It's great! I get those monthly breakouts and some makeup isn't to nice to my skin, this stuff is great for that and isn't one of those oils that will cause it either, actually HELPS it. One jar for the bathroom and one for the makeup table :)
I'm trying out more mascara to find the one I'm gonna love alll the time as I used to wear mainly false eyelashes (trying to cut back on my false lash addiction!) .This is one of the best mascaras you can find at the drugstore. I personally love the package, it's sleek and classy plus I love how it feels. The brush is nice, my favorite kind of brush. The formula is wet and can be messy but just be more careful. Also be careful how much you put on because it will stick your lashes together if to much is used. With one coat you can see a noticeable difference, two coats looks huge and beautiful! Doesn't make your eyelashes stiff, they feel soft and flexible and I'm definitely not worried about it making my eyelashes snap off. So pretty much for how cheap it is you can't really go wrong, worth having for sure.
Moisturizers -Formula 10.0.6 - Seriously Shine Free Mattifying Moisturizer
aliengirrl 3/22/2013 12:37:00 AM
I have a love hate relationship with this moisturizer, I've already repurchased it for a second time. I'll start with what I like about it... I've never used a moisturizer that the moisturizer its self helps with blemishes. I occasionally get those annoying blemishes during monthly time and from some make up products and everytime i use this almost instantly the redness and soreness is gone. Next day the blemish its self is almost completely gone. I've no idea why this occurs but I really like that about this product. Plus the bottle is cute. NOW for the not so pleasant things. The texture is awful, very liquidy. As soon as you take the top off and go to pour it into you hand the product just pours out without even squeezing the bottle. I suggest keeping the box it came it so you can store it upright. During the winter months when it gets really cold I do sometimes have to add an extra layer on my cheek areas. The smell isn't to bad, not great but not cringe worthy either. I will be repurchasing since the strange healing ability it seems to have over blemishes.
