Liquid -Revlon - PhotoReady Airbrush Mousse Makeup

I returned this. Terrible. It made my skin look disgusting. Maybe it's just my skin type. :/ No go for me.
Broke me out :( I REALLY liked it, too! It gave me decent coverage and looked nice on my skin, but I've been getting ugly pimples and I came to the conclusion that it is because of this foundation. It's the only new thing I've added to my routine, and I had pretty clear skin before I started using this. I have struggled with acne since I was 14 so anything that jeopardizes my skin is a no go. Bummer.
I'm really happy with this palette. At first when I got this I wasn't too impressed because I felt the colors didn't blend well and looked a little muddy. As I started to experiment with the colors more, I fell in love with it. The colors are gorgeous, and under a good base they look nice all day. I have been able to create such beautiful neutral looks (my favorite). Definitely a good buy. P.S Buy this on eBay, it is wayyy cheaper! =)
Eye Shadow -Sonia Kashuk - Eyeshadow Quad - Brown Eyed Girl

Eh. This is my first Sonia Kashuk eye palette and to honest, I am not impressed. The colors looked gorgeous in the pan, absolutely beautiful but they are SO GLITTERY! The glitter fallout is ridiculous, it gets all over under my eyes and on my cheeks, it's such a mess! The glitter pieces get in my eyes sometimes too and it is really annoying. Honestly, I think the matte or satin shades from this brand would be better. Pass on this one. The pigmentation isn't that great, and it looks like you just put glitter on your eyelids. No bueno.
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - ColorIcon Palette in #249 Vanity [DISCONTINUED]

This didn't work for me :/ The colors are gorgeous though! And suuuper pigmented. They just didn't look good on me for some reason, and it was so disappointing :( I gave it to my friend who has a warmer complexion and it worked beautifully on her. I want to try the other colors, though. These are good quality eyeshadows.
Lipstick -Revlon - Matte Lipstick - Pink About It [DISCONTINUED]
courtinkerbell 10/27/2010 3:01:00 AM
This is my favorite new lipstick! It looks soo sexy and chic. I would imagine it would look wonderful on a lot of skin tones. It's a bright pink but not stupid bright that you can only dab a little on without it looking over the top. I can layer this on and it still looks tasteful and perfect. I'm in love with it. Since it's matte, it is a little drying but nothing a little lip balm can't fix =) (my favorite is eos!) Seriously though this lipstick adds life to my face when I'm feeling kinda lazy with my makeup hehe
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Stylish Smokes in Natural Smokes

I effing love this palette, omg. It's just... great. The colors, the pigmentation, the lasting power are all wonderful. I've been wearing it EVERYDAY since I bought it about a week and a half ago. No joke, I wore this WITHOUT primer, to an amusement park and went on roller coasters where my eyes were running and i would wipe them after the ride and I thought, "Great my makeup probably looks like sh*t" but the eyeshadow still looked perfect. I was shocked. Definitely pick up this quad, it's worth a try. I seriously loooove it
Cleansers -Neutrogena - Oil-Free Acne Wash Cream Cleanser

I have the pink grapefruit version of this, which I couldn't find on here... Maybe there is but oh well. I actually really like this. It smells sooo good! I enjoy using it so I have become very diligent about washing my face morning and night, so that in and of itself has really helped my skin lol. It doesn't make my face feel "squeaky clean" which is what I like in a face cleanser, so that's why I gave it 4 stars. All in all, I really do like it.
I really love this mascara! It has eliminated the need to curl my lashes because it really makes my lashes stand out! I haven't noticed any GROWTH, however, my lashes feel healthier! They don't fall out nearly as much when I take my eye makeup off which is FABULOUS because that used to happen all the time. Overall a great mascara. I've been using it for only a couple of weeks so I will update in about 2 more weeks :) EDIT: This HAS helped my lashes grow! I feel like they are longer and stronger as well. This mascara is great!
Moisturizers -Garnier - Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream
courtinkerbell 9/27/2010 1:50:00 PM
This is the best moisturizer I have bought for the price. It's so light but so surprisingly moisturizing. It's great under makeup, and doesn't leave my face shiny. (Although not completely matte either) It leaves my face supple with a slight dewey glow? I really like it. I have combination skin and it works great for me.
I love this foundation! I've been crazy about it since I bought it. It's like an eraser lol, I use it with my ELF powder brush and it seriously gives me beautiful looking skin. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because it does get a little shiny after a while, but nothing a little powder can't fix. I wish I could give it like 4.5 or 4.75 or something because that really is a minor flaw. Otherwise I love this foundation!!
It took me soo long to finally buy this, but I'm so glad I did! PF was having a buy one, get one 50% off so I used that as an excuse to buy this because I've been wanting it for a long time but it's $12.99 normally. I love it all over my face, however, it is sparkly so if you don't like sparkle I wouldn't recommend this on your face. It's a beautiful eye shadow palette, too! The pink and the bronze are my favorite. Definitely love this, and in the future I will be re-purchashing this even at full price.
I've been looking for a cheap alternative to my beloved Benetint which I love but unfortunately, is a tad too expensive for my taste. I was in Target and spotted these liquid blushes and thought "Why not, for $10, how bad can it be?" I got it in Rose (or Rosy I forgot what it's called. The red one haha). The first time I put it on, I didn't like it. I thought it made me look like a clown and I was really disappointed. But I tried it again sparingly and put powder over it and it looks soo good! Like a pinched cheek rosy glow. And, surprisingly, I like the texture better than Benetint. It's much easier to blend and spread without getting splotchy and if you mess up, you can wipe it right off. That being said, it does not by any means have the staying power of Benetint but it holds up. Overall I like this product. Oh and you get a lot and you only need a tiny, tiny bit for your cheeks .
Lip Gloss -L'Oreal - HIP Jelly Balm [DISCONTINUED]
courtinkerbell 5/29/2010 2:30:00 PM
I really like this. It's more of a balm than a gloss though. It feels very nice on my lips, and gives me a nice red tint (I have it in Delectable). The smell is wonderful, it smells sweet but not gross sweet like some lip products. It smells kind of like a cupcake haha. I got it on clearance, and I don't know if I'd buy it for full price. It's nice, but probably not worth like $9.
I love this eyebrow pencil. I was torn between medium brown and dark brown and I am SO glad I got the medium brown. It looks so good on my eyebrows. I love the tiny point, and even the little brush thing it comes in. I'm obsessed with my eyebrows, and this is by far my favorite pencil (That's saying a lot). The only downside is you have to click up more product every 2 uses or so, so it feels like it goes fast but I got it for $5 so no big deal.
