Oh, be still my beating heart! This palette is everything I could ever ask for. I'm not usually a big eyeshadow person but once I got this I started wearing it everywhere, everyday. The range of colors is fantastic. In my mind there was only so much neutral you could do before it starts getting boring, but none of the shadows left me underwhelmed. They all work really well together, too. The one thing I have a complaint about is the packaging - the velvet exterior attracts lint like none other. I'll definitely be buying this again!
Concealers -L'Oreal - True Match Super-Blendable Concealer

I big fat LOVE this concealer. I've never tried anything that comes even close to working so well. It's very light, blends amazingly well and you can't even tell I'm wearing concealer. There are a few dark spots it can't cover very well, but when that happens I just use it before and after my foundation. The only problem I have with this is that a LOT of product comes out on the brush, so when I'm not very careful putting the wand back in the tube it can get all over the outside of the mouth of the tube and it oozes everywhere when I screw the cap on. But I will absolutely buy this again!
Meh. I'm somewhat picky about mascara and this just didn't do it for me. It flaked off my lashes and landed under my eyes to make me look like I'd left it on for 3 days. Not pretty! I won't be rebuying this, and I'm still on the hunt for the perfect mascara.
I got this on sale at Ulta for less than half of the original price, which is the only reason I bought it to try. It works great! It doesn't leave a lot of residue and smells awesome, which is more than I can say for other similar products I've tried. I haven't had the leaking problem, but I've heard that the company fixed that so I'm not worried. I'm planning on going to get another bottle or two before the sale is over!

I love this product. I bought it along with the Fiberglass Network product by the same brand (it came free with the Instant Artificials). I use one coat of FN and then two coats of IA and it instantly strengthens my nails. I have never had one break while wearing this product! I will definitely continue to buy this and incorporate it into my nail routine.
Top/Base Coats -Unlisted Brand - INM -- Northern Lights - Hologram Top Coat

I love this top coat! It's so ME! I love everything holo and this didn't disappoint! I'm glad the holo is pretty sparse so it doesn't overload the base color. It evens out the polish when I have bubbles/bumps/etc and dries way faster than I expected it to!
