A little side note before rating this.. Mac is super expensive where i live.. lipsticks are $30 dollars and paint pots $34 so before buying something i think about it at least 10 times!! I loved indianwood from the moment i swatched it in the store. At first i wanted rubenesque but the color pay off of indianwood convinced me more. I love this as a cream eyeshadow, its very easy to use (no brushes needes) and very every day ( not sure for school or places like that) I love it!! the few cons are the following: - for my oily lids, i cant use this without a primer - i wish the color was a little more vibrant, it tends to be more on the opaque side once you put it on. I would love to purcharse more colors!! :)

With this i ended up making my mind about NOT buying every single thing everybody is raving about! Not because most people likes it, you will! This bottle cost me $22 dollars.. bloody expensive!! (this is due to where i live.. far far and beyond) I have teenage skin.. oily with dry patches and very acne prone. This was supposed to be a " HG " product.. it wasnt. (my experience) - takes off very little of your eyemakeup.. no way with waterproof mascara - does remove the makeup from your face but for me at least it required cleanser and about 2 cotton pads with the product.. thats a lot. I wanted an after party kind off remover.. easy and fast - even using this after cleanser and even as a toner.. no visible results.. same old acne prone skin. - It did leave my face very soft - It felt lightweight and very refreshing Overall, i would buy it again if it wasnt so expensive.. i would probably use it as a toner to make sure after all my skincare routine there wasnt a single drop of foundation. * I do think this may do wonders on normal skin with very few imperfections*
Eye Primer -Too Faced - Shadow Insurance, Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer

I was so scared of buying this product!! Given the fact that where i live there is no sephora or qvc or walgreens or ulta or pretty much anything.. too faced was one of the few brands they sold near me . I would of prefer to buy the UD primer potion but since i needed a primer ASAP i could afford to wait to order it online. So i went for the 2nd most hyped about product. ( I have very very VERY oily lids that make powder and cream eyeshadows go away in 3 hours.. even color tattos, paintpots and stuff like that) I got to say that im very pleased with this!! It has a more watery consistency that a cream eyeshadow so with a tiny amount you blend it all over your lid. PROS - Nice tube that wont break - Makes my eyeshadow last for an estimate 8 hours - you dont need much product CONS - kinda expensive - after 4 to 5 uses you will need to shake it up a little bit before applying or you will end up with liquid stuff all over your lid - watery consistency, if it were more dry it would help oily lids to grab the eyeshadow for longer amount of time. I would buy it again because it WORKS and have tried so many things before finding one that actually works.
I have got this product for several months but I havent used it very much.. Going to the facts: - Inexpensive - Pigmented - Wet texture My experience given the fact i have combination skin and acne: - Doesnt last very much on my cheeks - color too strong, hard to blend without moving your foundation - accentuates my pores and pimples. - dont like the wet texture because it makes it easier to way away. Wouldnt buy it again but i would considere buy a softer shade for winter when my skin is less oily.
ITS AS SIMPLE AS THIS: - NOT a setting a spray. Your makeup doesnt last longer with this - Helps your makeup looking more natural, apply it if you ended up looking a little cakey. - Its very refreshing, it hidrates your skin. Would not repurchase, doesnt do as it claims, expensive for what really is.
Nice lipstick with decent longevity. Like the color but didnt fit me perfectly (it changes with every person). Packaging is bulletproof, I would repurchase it but in different color. Little warning: it can be a little dry on the lips.. I have dry lips so i cant apply this directly, i need lipbalm and a lip brush.

mmm... I tried... I remember i tried Morrocanoil a few years ago when it was popular yet and honestly i did not notice too much of a difference. Now a days i have very damaged hair so i was looking for a treatment. Since there are plenty reviews on this and the price is affordable , I decided to give it a try. It does leave your hair smoother BUT the effect goes away pretty fast and there are not noticeable results. I tried it on wet hair and on dry hair and no results :(

- Very little coverage - too creamy for a concealer - doesnt cover blemishes or dark circles - doesnt last Very dissapointed and afraid of buying more concealers...
Why wouldnt i repurchase this? I have combo skin, this is a light coverage and doesnt hold my oils. However, its great for winter time when you want to look very natural and dont have the sun to ruin your foundation. I would repurchase this if it was more affordable.
GREAT product. Amazing with foundation, doesnt lose hair, good price. ONLY CONS: I dont know how, but the handle separated from the brush... i had to fix it with glue or something like that. But for the price, its amazing and it takes me like 2 min to blend the foundation into the face giving such a natural look.
Blush -Tarte - Amazonian Clay Long-Wear Blush in Tipsy

So... I think this product is a little overhyped.. First of all, I purchased this after hearing tons of reviews (tons!) and after reading everywhere that this was a peachy/coral color but more on the peachy side.. its NOT. This has like no peach to it, so when it finally arrived i was VERY DISAPPOINTED. Its dead on coral, kind of bright. After that first impression, i decided to use it anyway. The color really grew up on me , i love love love how the coral looks on me BUT i got to say... there is NO FREAKING WAY this lasts 12 hours.. i mean NO. i would give it about 6 hours, 8 if you have dry skin. Overall, i use this blush everyday and i love the color and the packanging and the brand :) but I would not repucharse it because it doesnt lasts like it says and its quite on the expensive side.
DISSAPPOINTMENT... theres a LOT of hype with this product! and for me its not worth it.. I have oily lids ( not crazy oly but oily in the end...) and this thing does NOTHING to prevent my eyeshadows from creasing... its a very strong white and i really dont find it a nice purpose... not even in waterline and less on my inner conner.. BAD BAD BAD
This is a very candy-ish pink!! its a ligh pink with high pigmentation so i was a bit exeptical on how i would pull this off since i dont usually like very bold lips... Due to the cream formulation it has, its not hard to manage the color as you like it! I have VERY dry lips and once i exfoliated them this lip butter worked geniusly!!! WARNING: dont play with your lips during the day or it will go away..
Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel in Blacktrack

LOOVE this gel liner!! I have oily lids and this doesnt smudge or move in at least 8 hrs! the color is great but i discovered that using a cheap liner brush the color doesnt show as much but its my brush fault. Its very blendable so when i put a cracked line ( often) i can fix it without a problem! Great product, good packaging, lasts a long time.
With this palette you can pull off TONS of looks!!! you can adjust it from simple to bombshell! Its a great neutral palette with great shimmery eyeshadows ( no fading) and some matte ones! The price is not the best but i really like the product and its perfect for travelling, i only take this palette when i travel and it works for everything! DEFINETELY recommended ( especially when you want 1 multi purpose product)
