Let me start by saying i've used laura mercier, mac, smashbox, lancome, bobbi brown, clinique anything you could think of pretty much. Some were ok, some were not so great. No concealer I have ever used has compared to amazing cosmetics. I will say that my rating is based solely on how it works for undereye bags though. For a little tube of the concealer it's 28$ and for a big one its 40$, I put the price as a 2 because even the little one has lasted me a year already. I've used cle de peau correctuer which is 68$ for a stick that lasted me about 7 months, so the price for amazing cosmetics is very good. I recommend this product!
Styling Products -TiGi - Catwalk Curlesque Strong Hold Mousse

This mousse is fantastic. I have long thick curly hair, and I have trouble finding mousse that will tame it. I have a problem with some pieces of my hair sometimes, they just won't curl. My hair is curly and then as it gets longer it gets more straight. This product fixes it so well. It gives me the Taylor Swift curls all curly headed girls want. Be careful when applying though, a little bit of this product goes a long way. If you put too much it does tend to make your hair a little crunchy. The only thing I don't like about this product is the mousse feels like it's full of air and it disintegrates very quickly. The price really isn't bad, I think it just seems that way when you can find a bottle of treseme(flawless curls, my favorite drugstore mousse)at Walmart sitting next to this one for 4$ as opposed to 20$. I definitely recommend this if you want very defined full curls!
This product is OK. I have crazy thick long curly hair and for some reason the bottom half of it doesn't curl as much as the top. This mousse helps even it out a bit, and it is by far the best drug store mousse for curly hair out there. It doesn't leave it crunch if you don't use to much. Good stuff for the price.
Foundations -Bare Escentuals - bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation

I should probably start off this review with saying that my skin is not oily or dry, and I've never had acne so my take on this foundation will be different from others that do. I've been using this foundation for about 4 years now and it's AMAZING. I use the shade golden tan, which is perfect for my skin tone. It makes my skin glow, especially with the mineral veil on top, and in summer with the warmth. One thing I don't like is without primer it easily creases into my smile lines. But overall it is an amazing product and I will keep using it until I find something better(probably won't). It is a bit pricey, but one foundation lasts me at least a year because you only need a little bit of product. Another thing is when you're first purchasing, make sure you get the right color because there's a big variety, and if you have golden or yellow skin make sure you get one that says golden in the title, because others will make your face look pink.
I've used some high end mascaras, my favorite being benefits bad gal lash, and I can honestly say it doesn't even compare to falsies. First of all it has adorable packaging, and the price is only around 5-6$. I have naturally long eyelashes but they't not very full. This mascara makes my eyelashes so long and full. It doesn't clump at all, until it's almost gone, which is understandable. I think that if this mascara was repackaged under an expensive brand it would be rated way higher. I'm honestly appalled at the ratings. I've never found a better mascara and I don't think I ever will.
