I have two of these and I absolutely LOVE them! I like that they're moisturizing and provide a good amount of color on the lips. The watermelon one is my favorite, it's the perfect bright bubbly pink for the spring/summer. I love that they twist up so you don't have to sharpen.
I'm so glad I found this flakie because I missed out on Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure. It's exactly what I thought it would be-only prettier. It looks like fish or mermaid scales and has a different look over each color. It also spreads the flakes evenly in one coat, which is rare. Love!

I don't have any problems with this eyeliner, it's a deep dark black, smudges easily and stays put after it dries...I just think there are many cheaper alternatives. The Milani liquifeye and Loreal HIP liners do the same thing for about half the cost. I would, however, buy more of the MUFE liners if they have a color I cant find in other brands.
Pressed Powders -Rimmel - Stay Matte Pressed Powder (ALL)
ep3074 12/10/2011 9:22:00 AM
I like this powder. It's not life-changing but it leaves my skin matte but not powdery so I still have a glow. The packaging is fine, the lid has never fallen off in my makeup bag but I don't think I'd trust it in my purse since it doesn't screw/snap on securely. This powder goes pretty fast because I don't think you get a whole lot of product but it's so cheap, I don't mind. I would repurchase.
I purchased this because I was out of Revlon ColorStay and I had heard this foundation was comparable (and it was on sale.) The main gripe I have with this is the color selection. I'm nw20 in MAC and the lightest shade of this foundation is too dark for me. It's also too orange. The formula is similar to Revlon ColorStay but I think I'll stick to that because they have my shade/undertones to choose from.
Mascara -LORAC - Multiplex 3D Lashes Volumizing & Thickening Mascara

I really didn't think I'd like this mascara because I'm not a fan of the curved, silicone brushes, normally. This mascara is awesome! The curve of the brush really does help "fan" out my eyelashes and the formula makes them look thicker and longer. I was presently surprised! Warning: Don't apply in a hurry, or the brush WILL stab you in the eye ;)

I love this blush. I didn't pick it up the first few times I saw it because it honestly looked a little boring in the pan but I'm glad I gave it a try. It's the perfect "natural flush" on me. When I apply it lightly to the apples of my cheeks, it makes me look like I just came in from the cold or a jog, which I like. Love it for winter but I'm sure it's a good color year-round!

I love this lipglass. It's very smooth and not sticky like I thought it might be. The color makes my lips look juicy and makes my face look awake. I love it. I should have bought two! I like that I can wear it all year because it's not as bright on my lips as in the tube. I hope it gets re-released.
I love this blush! It's not too pigmented, so its very easy to throw on and go. It's shimmery too so it doubles as a highlight. Beautiful peach color!
I like this blush but it's not as HG on me as I thought. I know I'm pale but if applied with the right brush it looks good. It would look better on tan/darker skin. I use a 187 because anything else packs on too much. Good summer color, I just don't find myself reaching for it too often as it's hard to wear.
I like this blush for when I don't want to think about what to put on. It's pretty. I just see no peach in it whatsoever.
I love this blush! Its a very pretty pale pink but if you put it over a coral creme blush or bronzer it appears more peach than pink. I like that it is matte too. It looks good on my pale skin, especially in winter!
I'm so sad these are being discontinued :( LadyBlush is the perfect mauve tone, very easy to wear. It blends easily and gives me that natural "flushed" look. I wear this alone or under another blush for more staying powder. I apply it with a 187 but I'm thinking of buying a smaller duo fibre brush for more control...but as for the blush...Love it!
I really love this blush. It's shimmery so I don't wear a highlight with it but it is a gorgeous pinky blush! I wouldn't call it "coral" but its very pigmented and wears easily!
Some of the facial whips are really nice, the lilac one for sure is amazing. But the one in Spotlight is way to frosty for me. These are nice for a cream highlight, you just have to find the right color for you. Plus they're only $1.
