Eyeliner -Tarina Tarantino - Eye Dream Hyperliner - Puppeteer

Absolutely a holy grail eyeliner. I have big green eyes that in the winter are usually lined in some form of black cat-eyed liquid extravaganza. In the summer I use something lighter, like a pencil. For a long time I didn't purchase a real pencil, only the creamy wind up things, because I was tired of sharpening and they were never good and I always scratched my eye...so on and so forth. Temptalia's review of these liners convinced me to buy this, so I did. The dark brown with casual shimmer looks great on my eyes and suits a multitude of looks. I love this both on my waterline and my lashline, and I will be repurchasing this as soon as I run out!
Lips -Revlon - Colorburst Lip Butter in Sweet Tart

If I had to pick a favorite of the Lip Butter line, which I probably own about ten of, this would certainly be it. The color is a bright everyday pink, and it is both moisturizing and pigmented. It looks great on a summer day, and it stays on relatively well. I can either wear this by itself, or over a similar toned lipstick and either way it looks wonderful. Love it.
Possibly my favorite blush? I purchased this after really liking the blush from the same line called Exposed, a plum-colored nude. I decided that while that was a great winter blush, that I needed a new color for spring and summer. After reading reviews for a good coral-pink, Blissful was the best choice. I am so intensely glad that I bought this. It's a beautiful color that brings out the natural pink of my cheeks beautifully. It lasts all day and looks great with any look. I have very dry skin and this still glides over any rougher patches that I might have. Great blush!
Hate. Hate this more than Great Lash, hate this more than MAC mineralize eyeshadows, I hate this more than probably any makeup product. I used this a lot in middle school, and decided to repurchase it recently. Honestly, don't know how I ever liked it then. This thin yet clumpy formula did nothing for my naturally long lashes, and dried up within a few weeks of purchasing it. It also gets runny extremely easily, and looks terrible after a matter of hours. I don't understand how so many Youtube gurus love this mascara, and I guess I never will.
Although I was expecting more of a champagne pink like UD's Sin, I was still extremely happy with MAC's Naked Lunch. This can be used either as a brow highlight or an overall lid color with great results. It's a sheer yet pigmented color that brings out a great natural eye. Love it!
I am frustrated, to say the least. I bought this because it really is a beautiful color. However, it is the finish that makes me dislike this lipstick. I wasn't aware when I purchased this that it would be a shimmery lipstick, so when I put it on, I was a little surprised. That I could get over. However, even with a balm under it, this product settled into lines on my lips that I had never seen, and was guaranteed to be gone with no chance of return within two hours. It recently melted in my car, and I felt no remorse throwing it away. I will not be repurchasing this.
Amazing. I am a happy owner of the original Naked, and when announcements about this new one were released, I prepared to buy it. I got it for Christmas, and having used it for about five months now, I can say that I am extremely happy with it. The colors are sensational, even for extremely pale skin like my own. I am obsessed with neutral eyeshadows, and these are great for any kind of makeup look. The price may bum some people out, but honestly you're still getting an incredible deal if you figure how much you're paying for a palette of full sized eyeshadows. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone!
Palettes -Sonia Kashuk - Hidden Agenda Concealer Palette

I guess I'm still on the hunt for concealers, since this one definitely did not work for me. It continues to frustrate me that as a relatively pale girl, skin products that actually match my skin tone are few and far between. This palette is by no means an exception, with only one of the concealer colors being even remotely close to matching my skin, and even that is too orange-y. The translucent powder is okay at best, and maybe if I was darker, this would work better. However, I don't note any exceptional staying power, even when set with a powder.
I do like this blush. It's a medium pink color which I thought would be too bright on my fair skin, but it comes out quite natural looking. The only problem I had at first was application. I haven't quite mastered a non-streaky application with my fingertips, but I recently acquired a stippling brush, which applies the color much better.
Highlighters -MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle

Love! Perfect highlighter. I can dust this across my cheekbones and temples and it absolutely lights up my face. It's subtle enough for "no makeup" makeup days, and it looks good to finish up an all done-up look as well! Not too intense on my fair skin, and would surely glow on any skin tones.
I really like this product! I was a little hesitant. I was originally looking for a bright bubblegum pink blush (think NARS' Desire) but a lady at Sephora recommended this to me. It's more of a violet pink, but I really love it. It's flattering when used with a light hand, and it has great pigmentation and better staying power than most other blushes.
