I love this lipstick so much. I don't understand how it has received so many bad reviews. Many girls are saying it does not look good alone, without lipgloss, but I wear it alone sometimes and it looks great on me. I always get compliments when I wear it. You're not suppose to rub any nude lipstick on your lips, you're suppose to dab it on until you've reached the desired look. Dabbing it on instead of gliding it on, really does make a difference. So try that, maybe it'll make you not look "dead" anymore, as some of you commented haha. I really do recommend this lipstick. I think it's great and it's very inexpensive too which is a plus.
I love the coverage of this foundation. One of the cons is that I didn't really notice it do as it claims by controlling shine. My face was oily within an hour. I feel like this foundation makes my face more oily than it normally gets. Another con is that it made me get about two or three pimples. I never got pimples until I started using this product. The packaging isn't very good either. I read some reviews commenting on the "gritty texture" that's because the foundation contains rice protein complex.
Hate the packaging, it would be nice if it had a pump at least. It made me break out and it's very oily. Big NO!

I love this foundation. It covers up really well, just going over your face once with this foundation will cover up any redness or imperfections, no need to build it up or anything. I use this with Too Faced's Primed and Poreless primer and it leaves my face looking flawless.
Amazing concealer. It is so full coverage, it covers just about everything I would want to conceal. And a little goes a long way so this tube will last quite some time. I highly recommend this product if you want a full coverage concealer with only one coat of application.

These wipes are great, and for the price that they are you just can't go wrong with these. They do remove every bit of makeup that's on your face. I read other reviews commenting on the scent, call me weird but I actually liked the scent. Bottom line, great wipes!
Foundations -Make Up For Ever - HD High Definition Foundation

Eh, I give this foundation 3 lippies. I had heard good things about this foundation from others so I decided to pick it up. The only thing I dislike about this foundation is I noticed it accentuates a dry flaky area next to my mouth, other foundations I used to use never did this. Maybe I'm just not moisturizing enough in that area, who knows. I'd love to know if the foundation does this to anyone else? Also, it doesn't seem to apply evenly from the bridge of my nose down to the tip. It looks splotchy and strange. Idk, maybe it's the foundation, maybe it's the way I'm applying it. IDK, but this foundation wasn't as great as I imagined it to be.
I love this. 2 coats and you'll have gorgeous black nails.
I did not like this mascara at all. I gave it away to my friend a couple of days ago, but now I'm regretting it after reading all of these tips on making this mascara look better...

Best eye liner pencil ever. It applies so smoothly and it's very pigmented. I have these in "Zero" and in "1999" the colors are lovely. $20 for each eyeliner but they are well worth the price :)

I cannot believe I waited so long to purchase this powder. It is AMAZING. Hands down. I didn't want to invest on the regular size and end up disliking it and wasting my money on a product I was never gonna use, so I invested in the travel size for $16 to give this a try and I absolutely love it. I set my MUFE HD foundation with this and it leaves such a nice matte airbrushed finish. Just in case any of you are wondering I apply this with a kabuki brush. And also, just a tip, a little of this goes a long way :)
Purchased this blush at Target for $3. It's a great color and overall a great blush for being so inexpensive.
I agree with everyone else's comments in saying this concealer is quite a sheer concealer, but it works just fine for me. I put about a layer or two on my under eye dark circles (which are quite dark, I might add) and it does a good job in covering them up and highlighting and brightening under my eyes. Overall I think this is a good concealer.

Misc Beauty Tools -E.L.F. - Studio Makeup Mist & Set Spray

This spray actually works better than I thought it would. For $3 I didn't expect for it to be all that great, but I still decided to purchase it and give it a try. I am so glad I did, after applying all of my makeup I mist my face with a bit of this and it leaves my face looking nice and leaves it that way for a couple of hours. It reduced oil and shine. And as for the bad scent that others are commenting on, I haven't noticed any scent in mine at all. Mine actually has a clean scent to it, idk how to describe it. Everyone should give this a try, it's so cheap and well worth the money, in my opinion.
