LOVE this bronzer! It's cheap, not shimmery, and does the trick! Packaging is meh, the cover tends to break/crack after having it for a while. But for the price it does not bother me! This will be my second one that I hit pan on! And both times I bought it, it was on sale for dirt cheap!! Next time it goes on sale, I am buying more than one!
PROS: - Very nice soft matte finish - Controlled oily t-zone - Does not break me out - Natural looking - Good coverage - Easy application/Blendable - Lasted me a whole work day in hot weather! - Covers blemishes - WAY BETTER than the original Revlon Colorstay foundation CONS: - a little pricey for a drugstore foundation A lot of people are complaining about the packaging. I have nothing wrong with it. Yes, it's big for travel but whatever, it's still a great product! This is now my HG foundation!!!!
This mascara is really gross, do not buy it. Looks tacky, goes on clumpy, does not do anything good for your lashes but add a little color to them...

PROS: - decent coverage for a tinted moisturizer - not cakey - blends well - doesn't break me out CONS: - made me look more oily than I actually am!!!! - shade Alaska was too orange for my skin tone - Expensive WIll not buy again for the simple fact that it made me look like a grease ball
Useless product. Made my hair look worse than it actually was. Do not buy!
Lipstick -Cover Girl - Outlast Lipstain #415 Teasing Blush
ambersmiles 1/17/2012 5:21:00 PM
WARNING! the colors displayed on packaging for this product are not true to real swatches! This lip stain should NOT be called ''outlast'' as it does not last! It fades very quickly and leaves you with uneven colored lips. yuck! It looks like, feels like, and smells like a crayola scented marker for KIDS. The only thing I like about this product is that it makes my lips feel as though there is nothing on them, and the color will not transfer. However, I will not repurchase since it does not last like a lip stain should.
Overall, this is a good concealer. It covers well and I the color matches my skin tone perfectly. What I don't like however, is the packaging. The brush is a little rough on the under eye area. And after a while of using it, from opening and closing the lid, the brush part becomes ruined.
First of all, this product smells like roses. You get used to this, but the first time I used it, it caught me off guard and I was not sure what to think of it. This mascara does a FANTASTIC job at separating your lashes, zero clumps! Although, I am left unimpressed about the little volume it gave me.
Eyeliner -Maybelline - Line Works Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner

This is a good inexpensive liquid eyeliner. The felt tip allows easy application. It does wear off after many hours of wearing it, but for a cheap product it was no surprise to me. Either re-apply or, in my case, I simply use a black khol liner over top of it when I first apply it. I will definitely continue buying this product.
I tried this out because of seeing so many good review on it. Pros: Gives really good coverage, dries super fast, it lasts! Cons: Be careful not to put too much as it can get cakey, blend very well and fast as it will dry quickly, it smells a little funny.
This is my FAVORITE drugstore mascara! I love the brush, I love the carbon black color, I LOVE the volume it gives me! I have been buying this mascara for 4 years now and even though I'm always trying out other drugstore mascaras as they often have sales and new ones coming out, I ALWAYS have this one in my makeup drawer and it's always the one I've been going back to because it's that awesome!
It is very easy to apply as it goes on smoothly and I like the creamy/silky texture it has. It feels great upon application too. The coverage is medium, not the best but does help cover under eye circles. What I don't like about this product is that it slides around and doesn't last all day. I am about to run out of my second one, but I don't think I would buy it again as it does not stay in place on my face.
