I love this, it's gorgeous and makes my skin glow. I use it all over my face to brighten it up. It definitely is not a bronzer for me, and I'm pretty fair (NC10). I could use it as a highlighter even, but I prefer to use something a little lighter to highlight. This is beautiful for fair skinned neutral to warm skin tones.
This is a gorgeous highlighter. I use it on my cheeks and the inner corners of my eyes, and it really brightens up my face and gives me a glow. I'm NC10 so i don't see how this could be a bronzer for anyone. i think it's good for warmer skintones, while Wet 'N' Wild all over shimmer seems better for cooler skin tones, because it's more pink.
I found this blush on ebay and was intrigued, as I'd never heard of Wet 'n' Wild having a blush called coral reef. I purchased it, and when it arrived it reminded me of berry shimmer, but more orange-y (see pics). This is a beautiful color, a deep coral with golden shimmer undertones. I'm not sure if it's discontinued or what, I bought it from ebay seller josy1 and I think she has more available. I'd definitely check this out though. It doesn't feel as smooth as my other wet 'n' wild blushes, and seems less finely milled (although I'm hoping this may mean this blush is less fragile than the others I own by wnw). I'm NC10, and this looks beautiful on.
Sunscreen -Neutrogena - healthy defense daily moisturizer spf 50 with helioplex

I got this with high hopes. I wanted something to wear under my makeup with a relatively high spf. i have had good luck with neutrogena products in the past so i picked this up. the problem with this is it makes my skin greasy, and this is still with using a matifying powder over my foundation. it doesn't really sting much the way spf usually does on my sensitive skin, but i need something that is a little more mattifying and doesn't make me greasy.
Eyeliner -Wet 'n' Wild - Mega Eyes Defining Marker - Blackest Black
cheeky 4/27/2013 3:19:00 PM
Wish i had read reviews before purchasing this, the color as said below is NOT black. it can't even be built up to a black. if you want a cheap felt tip eyeliner try new york color (nyc) they have a nice one. flower beauty also has a decent one. stay away from this, it sucks.
I have this in 3 colors and absolutely love it. i usually sheer it down because it's super pigmented, and it looks beautiful. i only really wear matte finish lipsticks and this is perfect for the price, and finish. it doesn't feel bothersome on my lips which is a plus, and it is a little drying but that's how matte lipsticks are so i can't complain.
I never would normally wear a color like this, i mostly stick to peachy pinks as i'm nc10-15 and warm toned. however i had this blush laying around from my grandmother, and thought i'd try it out. it's actually beautiful on, it's a beautiful rose mauve-y color that is super flattering, and makes me look very polished. it's more grown up than the bright corals and oranges i'm used to wearing, and really seems to bring out the green in my eyes. it's not the most pigmented, but i prefer this because i tend to apply too much blush and end up looking like a clown. i suggest trying this out, i think it could look beautiful on a wide variety of skin tones.
Blush -Wet 'n' Wild - Silk Finish Blush- Naive [DISCONTINUED]
cheeky 4/27/2013 3:09:00 PM
this has been discontinued but i got it on ebay, and i think you can still get it in canada. anyway, it's the most gorgeous peachy pink color i have ever seen. it's somewhat similar to pearl-escent, but no shimmer on your skin whatsoever and very natural. i'm nc10 and this is an hg blush for me. it's perfect for summer and i suggest looking for it (ebay, google, etc), it's so worth it.
I purchased this from Ulta the other day not having read any reviews, I just thought the color was pretty and more natural than the vivid orange and corals I have been going for as of late. When I first swatched this blush, I was a bit turned off by how greasy it looked on my fingers. I read that this has mineral oil in it I think? however, it doesn't look or feel greasy upon application which is nice. It looks like a beautiful natural pinky flush on my NC10 skin, and stays put all day. It hasn't caused me to break out (yet) but I really try to steer clear of mineral oil so if i do, i will stop using this. I think this will be a staple for spring/summer days when i want to look nice with minimal effort. Layering this with Wet n Wild's pearl-escent is a great way to brighten the blush and give it some shimmer. Love how densely pigmented this is.
I am kind of torn with these polishes. The colors are beautiful, I have hundreds of polishes and the colors still stood out to me. The packaging is cute, I love the names of the polishes, and I was super excited to try them, especially after reading reviews on here. I bought 2 polishes, However, they did not live up to my expectations because of the brush! The brush is too long and too flimsy for me to get a good application. It tends to bend too much and in the wrong direction when I try to apply polish, so the result is patchy.
I'm a little surprised at the low rating on these lippies because I have 3 and I love them all. I love that once you apply this lipstick, you can't feel them on your lips. I have a big issue with the texture of lipsticks, which is why I only wear them once in a blue moon. These are not sticky, have no discernible taste, and stay on for such a long time. They are super pigmented, and extremely matte. Yes they are kind of drying, but it doesn't bother me. I own 3 shades and all look great on. They can be sheered out easily, and still look just as beautiful. I found these at the dollar store, and will be on the lookout for more.
Lipstick -Wet 'n' Wild - Mega Last Lipstick in Don't Blink Pink
cheeky 4/15/2013 6:59:00 PM
This is not a color I would ever buy, but I got it as part of a wet n wild lot on ebay. I tried it on and was shocked at how nice it looked! Most pink lip colors don't do a good job at masking my natural lip color, which is really pigmented. So I tend to have to work with my natural color, and can't really experiment with shades that wouldn't work well over my lips. This lipstick is so matte and opague that it completely masks my natural lip color, and it actually looks really nice! I'm pretty conservative with my lip colors, I probably would never wear this out because I'm NC10 and would look crazy, but if you're more daring than me, I'd definitely try this shade. The texture isn't too bad, make sure your lips are well moisturized though because this can be drying. It's not sticky, and I can easily forget I have lipstick on when I'm wearing this which is a huge plus to me. The staying power is amazing. I'm looking forward to trying more lippies from this line.
Lipstick -Revlon - Colorstay Ultimate Suede - Catwalk

First of all, the color is gorgeous. I never would have thought I'd be able to pull off a color like this as I'm really fair and neutral toned (NC10-15), but it really brightens up my complexion and makes me look "alive". I like how it looks matte after a few minutes - i have pretty small lips and shiny glosses/lip colors only seem to make them look smaller, so i always reach for a matte lippie. It does last, and fades naturally. The only thing I don't like about this is the texture. You can really feel it on your lips, and it gets sticky. It doesn't have a discernible taste, but the way it feels on my lips really bothers me. Hopefully I'll get used to it.
Loose Powders -E.L.F. - Studio High Definition Powder
cheeky 4/14/2013 10:43:00 PM
I have been using this for about a week, and i LOVE it. it keeps me matte all day long, and blurs imperfections and large pores. It really gives me a porcelain look. The powder is very white, however, I do feel it's pretty translucent, I don't get a white cast on my skin (though I am very pale so it's possible I can't tell). The packaging is pretty bulky and it's hard to control how much powder comes out, but I keep the puff it comes with inside of the container to keep it from getting too messy. I apply this with the ELF flat top powder brush. Another great mattifying powder is the Rimmel stay matte powder in translucent. I love both powders, but this one definitely makes my skin look nicer.
I was super excited to get this because of the good reviews. I wanted to use it for my inner corner, and thought it would work well. I purchased cottage cheese along with milk, and I didn't like either. I found them both to be drying, and both went on patchy. The caps are awful, they always seem to crack and then the tip of the crayon gets smushed down. I would not repurchase.
