This product is a good primer. I wouldn't say it made my skin "poreless," (If someone finds a product that actually does that please let me know!!) but it does a good job of preparing my skin for foundation. It did not make my oily skin any oilier. It goes on super smoothly and a little bit of product goes a long way. Price wise? Definitely could be cheaper!
Lipstick -L'Oreal - Colour Riche Lipstick in Peach Fuzz

This was my first L'Oreal lipstick purchase. I usually wear MAC lip colors because I'm in love with the formula. I really wanted to like this lipstick. It's a lovely color in the tube, but I found that the color barely showed up on my lips. Also, the smell was unpleasant and strong (maybe I'm just used to MAC lipstick smell). Overall, I think I'd rather spend the extra money and stick with my MAC...
The MAC sales woman showed me this color; at first I thought it'd be too dark for my skin, but when she had me apply it I fell in love!! I usually apply this with a lip brush to be precise and use a clear gloss to enhance the lustre. Overall a beautiful, natural color.
The shades in this palette are gorgeous. It's super feminine and flirty, and it's a lot of fun mixing and matching these colors. However, I find when I apply the shadows, a lot of the color ends up on my cheeks, which is a pain to try to wipe away after you've applied foundation. I've used multiple brushes for application and found the same thing; the powder falls from the brush onto my face. I haven't really had this problem with any of my other eye shadows. However, like I mentioned before, the colors are beautiful so just be careful when applying to prevent shadow from falling from the brush.
Lip Gloss -Clinique - Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss in Grapefruit

This is the shiniest gloss I've ever purchased. It has absolutely no scent at all and comes in an easy application tube. I found no color with this particular shade, but it is excellent for using on top of your favorite lip color. I usually pair this with my MAC shades to create a luscious look!
I was so scared when I opened my box from smashbox.com and saw how bright this blush was! At first I applied way too much, and it just looked silly. This is a nice color pink if you have a very light touch when applying it. Now I use it with just a small application and it adds a nice color to my fair complexion.
I really like this lipglass by MAC. This is an excellent gloss if you like to play up your eyes, making them dark and dramatic, as the color is subtle yet shiny. This way, your lips aren't competing with your eyes. The color is slightly milky/light, with a hint of pink. This is my go-to gloss, as I feel like they make my small lips look a bit bigger! I definitely recommend this!
