This mascara has some great pros and some bad cons but that just means that there's potential for them to improve the formula. Pros - it really does extend your lashes. And when used with a curler, my lashes looked amazing! Super long and thick. Cons - Did get clumpy at times. And also the fact that it isn't waterproof sucks. Not only that but the slightest bit of water would cause the fibres to leak onto my face. So to sum up, if they made this waterproof and found a way to fix the clump issues, I would definately buy this again. I love how it makes my lashes look fuller and so much longer. But I hate that it can get clumpy and isn't waterproof.
I love love love this blush. It's the combination of an amazing colour mixed with the cheap price and good staying power that does it for me. The colour looks light peach on my nc43 skin. I've never had trouble with putting too much on because it goes on quite sheer and is buildable. It blends beautifully and gives my face a really pretty, fresh glow. It has a matte finish too which is great for my oily skin and I also dislike blushes with shimmer. It has great staying power. I wear it to work and by the end of the day it is only a little lighter than in the morning. Some people complain about the cheap packaging, but you are paying very little so don't expect designer packaging.
Primer/ Corrector -Cover Girl - Simply Ageless Serum Primer

I really wanted to like this product because I love Olay. But it is horrible for my combination/oily/acne prone skin. I use milk of magnesia under my makeup and that usually keeps me matte most of the day. But I tried using this primer (with MoM as well) and my face was a grease slick in 2 hours. It feels extremely heavy on my face, like my skin can't breathe. And it's also got a sticky feeling once it gets oily again. The only thing I like is the pump bottle. Other than that, this product is a huge let down unfortunately
Eye Shadow -Revlon - Colorstay 12-Hour Eyeshadow Quad "Blushed Wines"

This really doesnt suit my nc 42 skin + brown eyes. But apart from the colours, the shadows dont show up well on my skin even with primer. I have to layer and layer and layer and its gone after a few hours anyway. 3 out of 4 shadows felt chalky too.
Worst mascara ive ever tried. It is extremely clumpy and the brush is a joke. Both brush settings had the same effect - clumps and just an awful finish. Also very hard to remove. Dont waste your time on this one.
One of my favorite mascaras, this product looks so natural and doesn't clump. It does a great job of coating individual lashes and giving that false lash effect. However it does not make lashes look fuller. I also like the fact that it stays put but is very easy to clean off at the end of the day. It is great for a daytime look because it looks so natural. But for night, probably need something that adds more fullness to lashes.
Lip Gloss -Elizabeth Arden - High Shine Lipgloss (All)

Pros - I love the colour 'Rosegold' It really is high shine Cons- The smell and taste are horrible Not very good staying power
My lips felt so moisturized and soft after using this. The colour is so pretty but it is quite pigmented on my lips. I expected it to be more natural looking, but even using just one coat showed up quite bright. But it looks gorgeous so i'm not complaining. One thing I did notice though is that it runs out very quickly. The lip stick is so soft and creamy that it was over in 3 months.
Pros - decent coverage for my light acne scars doesn't break me out Cons - the packaging is a pain. Have to tap it a bunch of times to get just a little powder out. Only 3 shades light, medium and dark.
I have mixed feelings about this product. I have tried it all over my face - eyes, lips and cheeks, but mostly just use it as a cream blush. I have the shades 'coy' and 'rosie'. Both look nice on my nc 43 skin. The cream goes on quite sheer so it's great for beginners. I don't like the sort of metallic sheen it gives my cheeks though. I expect cream blush to look dewy, not satin/shiny. I bought the bloom blush in "rosie" and prefer that to the sheer color cream "rosie because there is no shimmer. The colours are the same as well.
