I have really oily skin and it's the best one I've found thus far, but I'm sure there is better
Powder -NYX - Stay Matte but not Flat Powder Foundation

The lady told me this would be great for my oily skin and "awesome for covering acne" (I was having a breakout) and she recommend it. Said it wouldn't be cakey. Ha. I find it to be really cakey and after a day of work I look like an oil painting. I would not recommend this to anyone.
Primer/ Corrector -E.L.F. - Mineral Infused Face Primer

I admit I haven't tried many different primers. I used to be one of those girls who wouldn't use a primer (yes, I looked like an oil painting at the end of every day) So this is only my second primer. I don't have much to compare it with, but I was recently at Target and picked this up because I had run out of my Hard Candy primer (which I like, works fine) But I thought, why not try this? Only $3. I came home and read some reviews and saw they weren't that great, but honestly I have found no negative things about it! I love the pump, I love the texture and feel of it on my skin and dare I say I think it worked a lot better than my hard candy primer? I dare.
Mascara -Maybelline - Illegal Lengths Mascara (2011)

I just don't think this mascara is any good and I would not recommend it. It has those micro extensions and it doesn't look natural, it looks like globs of mascara on your eyelash.
There is absolutely nothing good about this product, in my opinion. You can't even use it! It doesn't transfer onto the brush let alone onto your face. Waste of money.
I'm almost out of this product so I thought I'd write a review. It's a nice night cream and I'll probably repurchase it. At first I thought that it smelled weird, but now I don't even notice it. It's kind of thick, but it goes on nice and makes my skin feel/look nice so win!
I really like this finishing veil. I think it makes my makeup lasts all day and I'd definitely recommend it. I live in Florida and it gets pretty hot and I used this to set my concealer when I went out. I was in the sun from 9:00 A.M. to 10 P.M. and my skin still looked great! I wouldn't use the brush that comes with it. At first I did and I was like "why do people hate this brush?! It works!" But when I used my own powder brush I got a much, much nicer look. It blends beautifully.
Eyeliner -Maybelline - Line Stiletto liquid eyeliner

This is my go to drugstore liquid liner. It's super easy to do a cat eye, it lasts all day (even with my oily-ish eyelids), and dries fast! I definitely recommend this to people. The only con I had was when my felt tip somehow got bent, but it straightened out again and works perfect. Hope this helped! xx
Eyeliner -Maybelline - Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner

This just isn't for me. It takes ages to dry and you have to set it with a black eyeshadow. Or at least I did, which takes getting ready a few seconds longer. I also have somewhat oily eyelids and found this to be smudgy. A major plus though is that this product is SUPER easy to get a nice winged liner. I use it to line my tight line and not my lash line now though
I actually really like this product a lot. It gives you a nice natural eyebrow and I love that it comes with two different pencils that blend nicely together. I wish that the pencils would be longer though! I'd recommend it and I'll be repurchasing.
Concealers -New York Color - Smooth Skin Liquid Concealer
ickythump 9/5/2012 2:10:00 PM
This isn't the worst concealer, but there is definitely better. I wouldn't recommend it. That's all I have to say, really. It seems really watery to me and just doesn't conceal all that well.
I had been searching/trying out eyebrow pencils for MONTHS looking for a good color match for me and I finally found it with Maybelline Master Shape. It's perfect and looks natural, has a little brush on the end, nice waxy product. But the only con, and it's a MAJOR one is the fricking pencil is plastic and it's hard to sharpen! It is a nightmare. It doesn't come with a sharpener so you have to have one and it better be a damn good one or you're going to have a really chunky tip and good luck filling in your eyebrows with that.
Blush -E.L.F. - Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder
ickythump 9/5/2012 2:03:00 PM
This is another love/hate product for me. I love the blush it's such a pretty/wearable color, but the bronzer is horrible! I don't see how anyone can wear it. It's just not very natural looking to me. I will probably buy elf blush, but I'm staying away from their bronzer.
Primer/ Corrector -Hard Candy - Sheer Envy Skin Perfecting Primer

The package says and I quote, "Perfecting primer evens out skin tone and creates a flawless, smooth finish to skin. Fills in fine lines, wrinkles, and pores. Can be worn alone or under makeup." HA, right. It is definitely not the worst primer, but you can definitely find a better one. It does, I think, even out my skin tone a bit, but it however does not fill in my pores. I have quite large pores on my nose and this does nothing for them.
This mascara is one of those drugstore mascaras that you can make look like a higher end one. It works super well for me and that's all I can really say. I'd recommend it.
