Lipstick -Maybelline - Color Sensational- Make Me Pink

OMG OMG OMG! I love this shade so much. It's the perfect, cool toned pink that I've been looking for. I finally found my HG pink lipstick. Color payoff is good and I love that it doesn't have any shimmer. I always wear mine with clear gloss on top and my lips look lovely and kissable. Staying power is good. I've really got nothing to complain about.
please don't waste your money on this one. if you want to smell like a baby, you are better off buying a cheap baby cologne like Johnson's. I don't understand why this perfume has so many positive reviews. the smell for me is like baby powder mixed with ethyl alcohol. one reviewer is right, it smells like huggies lol. lasting power sucks too! half an hour later and you can hardly smell anything! I'm glad I didn't buy the full bottle.
Mascara -Max Factor - False Lash Effect Waterproof

This is the worst mascara i've ever bough! I only used it once and I do not have plans of wasting my time to make it work. It's just horrible! The formula is too wet, it takes a while for the product to dry and the worst part is the mascara gets everywhere. it ruins your eye makeup just like that. it made my lashes spikey and crunchy. it didn't separate at all nor gave me the volume that i wanted. it's also hard to remove. mascara doesn't come off easily even with a makeup remover as good as neutrogena.
This didn't work for me at all! I regret buying this product. Worsen my acne :(

I'm surprised on how well this product works. The smell is not something I'm crazy about but I got used to it already. I've been using this for 3 weeks now and my skin looks a lot better. I have the yellow bottle (pore perfecting) and it helped reduce the oiliness and the appearance of pores. my face is a lot smoother. This product will continue to be one of my staples. It's cheap and it works great plus it's all natural.
this is a great budget highlighter. gives you a nice dewy look, not too shimmery. gives you that right amount of glow. it stays on for hours considering I have oily skin and I live in a country where it's hot all year round lol. looks good both in person and in pictures. for the price and the quality this is definitely a winner! I have yet to find a better highlighter if there's any ;)
I have recently purchased this mascara and I can say that I'm in love!!!! I have long lashes and L'Oreal Voluminous works great in giving me the "falsies" look. Doesn't smudge on me. Love the texture too, not too dry nor too wet. You have to be careful though in applying it because it can clump. Haven't really tried wearing it for more than 8 hours but so far I don't have any issues with the staying power. My lashes look gorgeous and they stay curled for hours! I apply the mascara then do my hair (about 20 mins) and heat the eyelash curler using hair dryer (about 10 seconds) then curl my lashes for 10 seconds (each eye). I know makeup gurus say it's a definite no-no to curl your lashes after applying the mascara. well I've done it for years and I've never had any bad experience. that's how I've always done it!
This is the first pencil eyeliner that I have developed a love affair with. I use it on my lower lash line and it lasts for hours. there's a little smudging but I expect that because where I'm from, it's hot almost everyday and my skin is oily. found a solution though... I top it off with a powder eyeshadow and I don't notice any smudging anymore even after 6 or 8 hours. Love the color payoff and how it glides smoothly, no tugging or pulling required lol. It's not too smooth like Milani LiquifEye (like butter) and I think that's a good thing. This is a great everyday eyeliner. The color is lovely, not too dark. I will buy it again!
Eye Shadow -Revlon - Colorstay 12-Hour Eyeshadow quad " Sterling Rose "

I bought this after reading so many good reviews about it but I wish I didn't get carried away lol. The colors are not highly pigmented which means you really need a good eyeshadow primer. Believe it or not the $1 eyeshadows from E.L.F. are more pigmented in my opinion. The product claims that it will stay put for 12 hours without creasing or smudging. ehhh I don't know about that! I wore mine with cream eyeshadow as a base and I noticed some creasing after about 5 hours. I don't know which one is the culprit. I didn't like the texture either, I think it was a bit chalky. Expect some fall offs when you apply the e/s. I will still use the quad but I definitely won't be repurchasing. There are so many better drugstore eyeshadows out there.
I'm really not impressed with this lipstick... while it is very creamy (glides on my lips like butter) and the color is lovely, it does a really good job in emphasizing the lines on my lips which I don't ever experience with maybelline and l'oreal lipsticks. I really want to have a love affair with this one but... maybe I need to exfoliate and moisturize before I put this on... heck I don't wanna go through too much trouble when I'm in a hurry so i'd rather just use another lipstick! it also does not last very long so you have to reapply every 2 hours or so.
I bought this mascara because of the great reviews in youtube and MUA, the first time i tried it... omg I was amazed! i can't believe how pretty my lashes can look. i have long lashes but i'm having a hard time making them stay curled. with maybelline's full and soft, my lashes stay pretty and curled the whole day! it doesn't smudge and i don't get raccoon eyes! the product's name speaks for itself, you really get full and soft lashes plus they stay curled. there is no clumping even after 3 coats. if you have naturally long lashes and you want them doll-like and clump-free then you must definitely try this one!
Eyeliner -Milani - Liquif'eye Metallic eye liner pencil -black

I bought this eyeliner because of the raves in youtube but my oh my am i disappointed? yes I am! let me first mention the pros-- highly pigmented (rich black), pretty inexpensive and it glides on smoothly (like butter baby!). cons-- I applied it on my lower lash line and I patted loose translucent powder below to seal it but after just 2 hours, I already noticed some smudging. not heavy smudging though but I don't expect it to smudge after just two hours. it didn't stay on my waterline either. oh well I guess I still have to find my HG eyeliner. I'd still find a better use for this one, I hate wasting money ya know but I would never purchase it again.
I love this product! I've never used anything with the same quality. The first time I used it I was amazed. It instantly cleared my (almost) chicken skin and I cannot be happier. It's a little bit pricey but it's well worth it. I've been using drugstore scrubs forever and it didn't help my keristosis pilaris but with Buffy, I used it only once and I swear the skin on my thighs and butt area never felt so smooth and soft. I wouldn't suggest using the whole bar, slice it into 4 or 6 so it will last you a couple of weeks or months.
WOW! This product is amazing. I read pretty good reviews about this product and somebody said that it help treat her kerastosis pilaris so I had to try it. The first time I used it, I was in awe cus my chicken skin is almost gone so I can imagine how my skin would feel like after just a couple of days. Having KP is not easy and this product really helped my skin condition. It's pricey but I'd rather buy Lush Dream Cream (it's really small for the price,about the size of an ice cream pint) than buy 20 drugstore lotions that will not help my kerastosis pilaris. I swear it really works. If you have dry skin, chicken skin or KP (however you would call it), I really recommend this product! This is the HG of all body creams. It doesn't smell luxurious but hey that is not really what I'm looking for to treat KP. My skin has never felt so soft and smooth even just after one use.
This is one of my favorite shampoos! Really! Gentle on the hair but it gives the hair a lot of moisture and shine. It will not dry out your hair at all nor wear it down. It smells good but not too harsh-you know how other cheap strong smelling shampoos smell like. L'oreal is not anything like that. I use this with the anti-breakage conditioner and I think they work perfect together. These two brought my hair back to life. =)
