Lip Gloss -MAC - Frankly Fresh (Give Me Liberty of London)

I just picked this color up today and i cant wait to get a bunch of backups because i love it so much that i am afraid it will be out of stock soon. This is the perfect nude peach color i have been looking for for ages. At first, I thought it might not be really pigmented as most of the lipglasses are lacking of the pigmentations, they all tend to look really pretty in the tube but when you apply them on, its just another shimmery sheer lip gloss. but this one is actually quite pigmented, it shows up on my lips as a very subtle peachy nude, not too opaque and not too sheer, just the right amount of color. plus, it doesnt have a strong smell other lip glasses do, hands down the best!
Mascara -L'Oreal - Extra Volume Collagen Mascara Blackest Black

I must say I love this mascara. I didnt put too much expectations on this product, i was thinking it might just be another pretty packaging garbage, however, I do love this so much, i thought the big brush is just useless and hard to control, i am not usually a big fun of big brush, but this one is quite easy to control and the formula is relatively dry, instead of waxy, so that helps to hold the curls. I had my mascara on for 12 hours straight, and it still holds my curls perfectly. Plus, it gives me volume too.
i just picked this up today, its kind of pricy for $10 cdn @ my local shoppers, but I just cant wait to try it out, i got Born with it, its a really baby pink shade with micro shimmers in it, really pretty and true to color, it reminds me of MAC's cream cup, it smells like a mix of caramel and cotton candy, not very strong scented but it is there, not bothering me at all, it lasts quite long which i didnt expect, it lasts definitely longer than the moisture extreme line and the packaging is elegant and pretty, the only drawback for all Maybelline lipstick is that they dun seal it, so someone might open it up and check it, oh another one maybe they dun have SPF in it, which moisture extreme line has a SPF of 15 Overall, i would definitely try out other nude shades. Love it!
I love this eyeliner so much, I used to love Revlon's colorstay for long but since I read the reviews about this pencil, I thought I would give it a try and it was on sale for $4 cdn so it s not bad. And I am surprised by how easy it glides on, Colorstay got the best staying power I have ever tried but it does not glide as easy as this one, and the staying power is just about the same. Love love this and I will definitely try out other colors. Recommand to everyone who loves to do eyelines.
Lip Gloss -L'Oreal - Bare Naturale Gentle Lip Conditioner

I just picked this lip gloss up this afternoon and cant wait to put it on. I thought the color might not be showing up that much on my lips when i was deciding to buy it or not but i still chose to give it a try, as it claims that there are mineral benefits in the tube. After trying it on, i actually love it. I had Soft Peach which Penelop is using in the ads and its a light, warm peachy color that matchs my pale skintone very much, and enhancing my lips. its glossy and subtle, but not too much, just right! i agree that its a product that works between a gloss and conditioner, after a few hours, i can still feel it but i felt my lips actually absorbed it, so its not that glossy but my lips are moistured and soft, so I guess thats what it claims as a lip conditioner. The only downside is that its too pricy for a drugstore lippy, i will only buy it again when its on sale, overall, its worth to try it coz its so natural.
just picked this up in "addict" and love it. it not too sticky just a little bit, but i am used to sticky gloss so its not bothering me. the taste is not bad either, and the perfume will be gone soon so if you dun like the taste it wont last long. and it lasts for a quite while, which is a good thing to me coz i hate reapply over and over again unless for shades that i really like, i love the package as well, pretty worth it with the price of $7 cdn. will buy again for another shade.
I got this color in #16. I felt in love with this light pink yet shiny color when I saw it in the tube and tried it on my hands. But its lighter on my lips than I expected. I got pigment lips and this light pinkish color doesnt look very noticable on my lips, but I do love the shiny light subtle color and its moisturizing power. Some reviews here complained about the cherry scent, I found it okey altho i dun really like cherry scent, but its not strong so its not bother me. The downside is, like other reviews, its pricy, $20 Cdn for a lip balm. and its lasting power is not strong, need to reapply a few times thruout the day. I would love to try a more pigment shade next time when they release new colors. Overall, a good gloss.

I am so excited and surprised about the result after I applied this gloss on. This color is just what i am looking for for ages!! It looks like coral color but it's looks pinky on my lips, love it !! There is a bit of vanilla scent when you just apply it on, but it will be gone soon and its not strong. I like that its really shine on your lips naturally but not too mush, there are tones of tiny sparkles in the tube but I felt comfortable and there is no gritty feeling that L'real glam shine does. I also found that the lasting power is good as well, and it wont make a white ring around your inner lips. The only complain is the packaging, it looks so cheap just from the packaging that is why i didnt try it before, but the quality is super!! will buy again for another color.
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Super Lustrous Lipgloss - Nude Lustre

This is a decent drugstore gloss line in my opinion, the color is more orange on my lips like coral color, and I found it lasts long and the smell is not too bad, but not my fave flavor, its more like a kinda vanilla flavour. One thing that I dun like is when I wear it longer hours, i found it feels tingle. I suspect I am allergic to some of its ingridients but not that strong coz it was okey when I just apply it. Anyways, I would probably purchase it again when it's on sale.
This gloss looks really nice in the tube, but not on my lips. I hate the applicator, it's round shaped instead of the half cut shape that will fit on your lips, making application a lot harder without mirror and it is time consuming as well. The smell is okey but overall its just not worth the money. It's almost clear on my lips like a lip balm with no color but its more expensive than a norml lip balm and its not easy to apply. will not purchase again unless they improve its applicator.

Just like other reviews here, this gloss is really sheer in color, but i do like the just right amount of shine, not sticky at all but not lasting very long either. The smell is lovely. If they could change the package a bit that will be great, the package is more like a teen gloss that I dun really like. Anyways, an overall well gloss for drugstore brand, will try another color when its on sale.
I love this product, the package is pink and the peach-like smell is adorable~~Its really glossy and will not create a white ring around my mouth and it is not sticky as well. I got a gift size and will buy the full size when its run out. But I think the downside is its a bit pricy~~
