I bought one single eyeshadow color called Preppy In Pink. I also bought two duo shadows called Berry Chic, and Grey Matters. Honestly, I thought that the single eyeshadow was blush. I must've just missed the label or something. Anyway, I have used it for my eyes and I have to say that I like it. I don't exactly adore it, but I like it enought to buy it again, although not as a single shade. It is a little hard to notice on the eyes, but it gives just the tiniest bit of color and highlight to my cheeks. I guess that's why it wasn't made into a blush. I like the duos though. The Berry Chic is very pretty. It is easily blendable so you can layer on different color shades for different effects. I haven't tried the Grey Matters yet, but I love the smoky look, and I'm sure it'll give me that.
I like this foundation WAY better than CoverGirl's Tru Blend. Because: 1) Tru Blend made my forehead breakout. Many people have found Colour Adapt to be too sheer. True, it is a TAD sheer, but if you use a good loose or compact powder over it, it works great. Also, applying powder makes any kind of foundation stay put so it doesn't melt off when you go outside. As soon as I switched to Colour Blend, the breakouts vanished. Into the garbage can my $12.99 Tru Blend goes.
Mascara -Maybelline - Sky High Curves Extreme Length and Curl [DISCONTINUED]

Oh, this mascara is so wonderful! I'm surprised this product didn't have good reviews. It worked like magic for me! It made my lashes UNBELIEVABLY long. It looked like I was wearing fake lashes...(in a good way!) It gave them a terrific curl too. I'd reccomend this mascara to anyone who is looking for long, curled-up lashes.
This perfume smells divine. I am one of those people who have to change their perfumes every 4 months or so because I'll get sick of smelling like the same smell. I love the faint, clean smell of it. I got it for a cheaper price at one of those little stands they have set up in the middle of the mall. The real price was just too much for me. I found that the $45 I spent on it was totally worth it.
If you have sensitive facial skin: DON'T USE! It will irritate and make your skin peel. I love it because my skin isn't sensitive and it makes it smooth and feel refreshed. The exfoliating beads are a little rough for someone who doesn't use facial scrubs alot. But if you don't have sensitive skin and need a product that makes your skin feel smooth and clean, this works best.
I absolutely LOVE this lip balm! I love the tingling sensation on my lips. It refreshes them. Some people don't like the tingling, but it is something you'll have to find out for yourself. The price is relatively cheap too. It does a pretty good job of moisturizing your lips, but it mainly just makes them feel fresh and tingly and smooth.
Mascara -Cover Girl - Triple Mascara [DISCONTINUED]

This is great mascara! I bought it in Soft Black and it really made my lashes long and thick. I would definitly buy it again. The only thing about this mascara (as it is with most mascaras) is that it got clumpy after I used it alot. Once it gets clumpy, it's old and shouldn't be used anymore.
This blush is awesome! I haven't tried any other color except Snow Plum. It has a really unique highlighting effect when you put it on the apples of your cheeks. It makes you have a glow that resembles being out in the cold for too long except with shimmer on your cheeks. It is really an amazing color for anyone trying to make their cheeks appear shimmery and glowing.
If I could give this foundation 100 stars, I totally would. This is the most perfect liquid foundation for anyone having a hard time matching their face color with other foundations out there. This foundation matches 97% of ALL skin tones. It isn't cakey or thick. It glides on smooth and it covers extremely well. If you need excellent coverage without the makeup lines, this is the perfect foundation for you. **UPDATE**: This foundation made my forehead break out. Not alot, just around my temples. I just realized it a few days ago. I NEVER had any breakouts on my forehead until I started using it. Maybe it's because I have sensitive skin, or maybe just because of the chemicals they put in this certain foundation. This may not happen to you, but I actually bought Max Factor's Color Adapt today to replace the CoverGirl's.

These eyeshadow colors are great together. If you think the dark blue is too much, don't think it! The shadow comes off a translucent sparkly blue that adds the perfect amount of drama to the eyes. I got this at Walgreens for $2.99. If you want your eyes to pop, grab this item up at any drugstore.
Lip Gloss -Bonne Bell - Vita Gloss O2 in Strawberry Spritzer

This gloss is fab! It contains just the tiniest hint of pinky shimmer. It isn't sticky and it glides on smooth. The best thing about this gloss is that it contains certain healing vitamins that actually heals dry and damaged lips. If you need a burst of hydration to dry lips, this gloss is perfect.
I got this item at the Dollar Tree. Hey, don't frown on cheap makeup! It was only one dollar, but it was great! The blush contains 2 colors: The actual pink blush color, and then a shimmery pale pink highlighting color. The blush texture is smooth, so it blends easily. If you want naturally-flushed cheeks, head on over to the DT with a buck in your pocket.
I love this specific color lip gloss! It glides on really well, and it isn't sticky or gummy. It has this pretty tranlucent shine that still has loads of color. If you want shiny, slick, and smooth lips, this is the product for you.
I like this product. If you are looking for total coverage, this is certainly the product for you. One of the major cons about this item is that it is a little thick. It will definitly stay on all day, and it isn't cakey.
