Eyeliner -Wet 'n' Wild - Mega Eyes Creme Eyeliner - Black

Omg! I was in search of a creme liner but decided to not go for them because of the high prices and I hate spending too much money on makeup..well today I saw this at a store for $3.99! I was so suprised! It looked exactly like all the other high-end creme liners so I purchased it. The packaging is the same as the HIP creme liner, with a glass jar. The brush this comes with is so soft and makes applying the liner really easy. I was amazed how deep this black is! I have really tan skin and this stood out on me! yay! This turned out to be smudge-proof, even in 90 degree heat...love!
For a person who has used this for the past 10 years then switched to another cleanser this year, i can say this is a very great product that will reduce the pimples you get on your face, the downside being the dryness that will come with it. But you shouldnt use this in the first place if your skin is at all dry. Now for those with oily skins, then i would fully recommend this product for use twice a day along with a benzyl peroxide to clear your face. btw i use acnefree.
Eye Shadow -Christian Dior - 5 Colour Eyeshadow Flowermania

Except for the purple, i dont think any of these colors are that workable.. athough their the smoothest, best-textured eyeshadows ive come across, so the quality gets an A+
Ok, my long-standing devotion to Pure Poison i think has come to an end..after going through another bottle, i have decided though i love the scent, this is just too strong. Not it goes on strong, the actual scent is too strong. Though i love this floral scent, i think i need to head back to warmer orientals and vanilla scents, which i think are more me.
Palettes -Ulta - Ulta Blockbuster Holiday 2007 Kit

I actually bought this product after seeing its first review, and loving the girls pics of her diff. eyeshadow looks. I thought $25 would be cheap and made my first order at Ulta. When it arrived it came along with some coupons and samples ill never use but when i opened the case i was in makeup candyland!! The eyeshadow colors are vivid and pigmented, especially when you apply with a sponge applicator. The lipsticks are divine as are the glosses, my fave being goddess. It even comes with some pretty nail colors, and the case fits all my makeup! love it!
I actually use mine to fill in my brows, and i find that the dry texture of these really makes it best for only that. Overall great staying power and color, which i have in Black and Black/Brown..love these!
Liquid -Maybelline - Instant Age Rewind foundation

I'm finally writing my review on this after testing it for a few months. This has been the only foundation that has not broken out my acne-prone skin, leaving it relatively clear. The texture is smooth and the coverage is medium using your fingers to apply. I love the color match i got..the colors are all neutral and this is not a greasy foundation also, i think it is rather matte. Overall i love this foundation and hope it never gets discontinued!
This is a great color for wet n wild, on my lips its a pink fuschia but very toned down and elegant looking. The texture is very smooth and non-greasy, while the wearibility is good for the price (as long as you won't be doing any kissing in this) overall this is my fave lip color at the moment, and my bf loves it to!
Let me start off by saying that when i first bought these i wasnt expecting much because i was paying a dollar for them..but to my suprise these are top-notch liners! The colors i picked up where black, midnight(dark blue) and plum..these really are waterproof and smudgeproof..i sleep in my makeup a lot and i have worn them into the next day with it looking the exact same as I had applied it the previous day..and my lids are extra extra oily! the colors are very pigmented and need only one swipe for concentrated color and staying power..the only gripe i would have is washing this off because it stays on so well but i only use regular cleanser not eye makeup remover..overall i would def. repurchase this as the only liquid i will ever use!
Everytime i use this it leaves a weird film on my face, it just doesnt rinse clean at all..not impressed :(
Pressed Powders -Maybelline - Dream Matte Pressed Powder

I have been using this powder for a few weeks now, and i can honestly say its fantastic! It has great staying power for my super-oily skin and lasts all day and layers well too. The colors are all neutral, but i suggest you apply this with a brush instead of the puff it comes with for more even application...overall my HG powder! P.S. I break out from everything and i havent broken out from this!! update: I BROKE OUT FROM THIS WHENEVER I TRIED TO USE IT.....DOWNGRADE!
I got this as a graduation present, and let me say, this stuff REEKS!! unless you like a mix of strong fruit and alcohol on your skin, stay away from this headache-inducing product!!
