Blush -Physicians Formula - Shimmer Strips Custom Blush & Highlighter

I decided to try this product looking for a good highlighter. This works super well as a blush! When you probably blend it out, it gives a very nice light flushed glow and the glitter in this isn't out of your mind. I could totally see myself using this more often! However, this doesn't really do the trick for highlighting. The lightest shade is still very pink, so it fails on that point. The consistency is very powdery so be prepared for a mess! Overall, I think this is a very good product as a blush, not so good as a highlighter, and expensive for a drugstore product at full price. If you have medium tone to dark tone skin, you do not want this as a blush. It would probably be a brilliant highlighter though!

This was my first eyeshadow brush and I really like it! It's soft and it's not too bulky as some other reviewer's have said. It also blends eyeshadows really well and gets the job done quickly!
Eye Makeup Remover -Essence of Beauty - Gentle Eye Make-Up Remover (Non-Oily)

This eye makeup remover doesn't feel harsh on your skin and can really get the most troublesome products off! It also has a nice faint smell and it doesn't sting in your eyes! I picked this up for ~$3-5 and I would definitely repurchase. It's very cheap and works very well!
Lip Gloss -Sally Hansen - Diamond 12 hr lip treatment

Generally, I really liked this lip gloss because the colors are really pretty and shiny. I have the shade "Baguette" and it's a gorgeous pink with little sparkly specks. The gloss also comes in a cute tube! However, this lip gloss is sticky which makes it annoying. If you have a problem with sticky glosses, it's better to stay away from these. Other than that, this lip gloss was very nice. I paid ~$8 for this, but I would probably wait until it's on sale to buy it again.
This was the first BB cream that I've ever tried and I have it in no. 23. I really like it! You don't need a brush to apply it--I stick with my fingers. The smell is light and baby powdery and gives me a very dewy finish. Since it's a pretty thick formula, it covers my acne scars especially during one point when I went on a popping craze bleh. (Most of them healed) Therefore, this product is definitely a win! With the high SPF, it also does have whitening affects that I have noticed. After using it a few times, my skin does get lighter. I do have a problem midday when it starts to look cakey around my forehead. Since I've got some pretty big pores up there and my T-zone, the BB cream needs to be reapplied. I'm just a little sad that there isn't very much in the tube to begin with! I usually get very small pimple after using this every time, but this acne disappears a day later so I don't think it's a problem. I don't think I will be repurchasing this even though I rave about it simply because I want to try more BB creams out there!
The black side is fine. Works like any other black eyeliner. The colored side is BAD. Though the color appears really nice on your hand, when it comes to putting it on your eyelid, it's SO HARD! You have to drag really hard to put on the color...Badbadbad. =( Don't buy the duet! The color is just ...not good and fades very quickly.
Wetslicks amazemint is the first kind of lipgloss that I ever bought! Really like it. =) The color is a small tint that is appropriate for school/work and the gloss is very nice! The feeling of the mint on your lips is a great tingling sensation, but if that's not your thing, you probably want to skip this! I noticed that the gloss would fade about 1 hour after application, but it takes me awhile to run through an entire stick of these.
