I am pretty neutral with this. it felt pleasant and didn't break me out. but I also didn't see any hydrating properties and didn't particularly care for the scent. I also think it is overpriced, I would only recommend this if it is on sale. I don't plan to repurchase as I think there are better options available
I must say I do not understand the hype for this cult cleanser. it smells like chemicals, doesn't clean very well, and worst of all it broke me out. the only redeeming quality is that it is super gentle but I think in this cleanser's case it is more of a fault since its gentleness makes it not clean well. there are much better options when it comes to gentle yet thorough cleansers (avene, cerave, etc). would not recommend or repurchase
i will continue purchasing this. i feel like this is a product you will either love or hate. if you dont like waxy chapsticks, you should avoid this one. i love it because i prefer my chapstick to deliver moisture without lingering on my lips. i also love the cooling minty feeling it brings.. i always apply this on at night before i go to bed. cheap, natural, and functioning. like i said, if you hate waxy chapsticks, avoid this. and if you like your chapstick to give a long lasting slick feeling to your lips, you wont want this since it absorbs rather quickly.
my favorite drugstore mascara. it is excellent at volumizing, it doesnt flake, it is pitch black in color. the only thing i will complain about is it is a bit prone to clumping a bit but it is much better than loreal voluminous (which clumps like crazy!) i highly recommend this mascara.
Blush -L'Oreal - True Match Superblendable Blush in Tender Rose

overall i dont really care for this blush. i find it isnt very pigmented, it hardly shows up on my skin. to make any color show up at all on my face i have to layer the product on heavily. if you are going for more of a natural look, perhaps this is your blush. i would say the color is a muted berry pink. there is a fine shimmer to the blush and the texture is nice and smooth. it wasnt very expensive (i paid around 7 dollars). but i wont be getting anything from this true match line again. the lasting power and pigmentation are very disappointing. for drugstore blushes i'd rather go for wet n wild or rimmel, at least the show up on my skin.
i have espresso and dusty rose. both are excellent in quality. highly pigmented, lasts a decent amount of time, and the color range is great. espresso just wakes up my face and makes me look healthy. definitely try them out, they are great products for such a cheap price. i'd definitely get more colors.
Lip Gloss -Bonne Bell - Lip Lites in Strawberry Parfait

a nice cheap lipgloss with a pretty medium milky pink color. color payoff is very good, not sheer. stickiness isnt a problem, however i hate the taste and smell. very artificial and strong. but scent is subjective. ive really been enjoying using this, easy fast color that i just pop on daily.
Mascara -Make Up For Ever - Smoky Lash Extra Black Mascara

the best mascara ive ever tried. full thick voluminous lashes with the sooty blackness i love. doesnt clump, doesnt transfer under my eyes, not a pain to remove. the ONLY downside is that it dries out like crazy! probably within a month i would say. definitely an expensive habit.
Mascara -Yves Saint Laurent - Faux cils - noir radical

i wasnt impressed with this mascara. the formula is very wet, so it made my lashes clump like crazy. i could only stand using it after i let it dry out for month which i think i shouldnt have to do due to the price tag and brand prestige. after i let it dry out it performed like it should, i got volume with intense blackness. the scent is very pleasant, like roses. however this mascara transfers under my eyes. i wont repurchase, MUF smokey lash performed much better even though it does dry out quicker.
essie's formula really varies within their colors; some polishes wear and apply horribly, while others apply beautifully and stick around forever. this is definitely the latter of the formulas, ive been wearing chinchilly for a week straight and have yet to get a chip. i love grey shades so of course i love the color. if you love light dove greys, pick this shade up. the formula is smooth and resistant to chips. i recommend two coats, one coat wont do it.
this blush seems so unflattering in the pan, a seemingly light brown, but on the cheeks it looks great. if you compare it to other colors, you will see that the color is actually a browned light pink. i love the combination of browned pinks for blushes. this color brings life to my face. i love it. pigmented as always and lasts long. nars makes the best blushes.
i dont wear this lipstick often but i love the color. it is a very cool light pink. the wear time is fine on me. on me it shows up as a vibrant pink, which can be fun in certain occasions. i dont consider this color a daily color but it's not completely over the top. i think it's wearable.
Lipstick -Revlon - ColorBurst in 070 Soft Nude [DISCONTINUED]

this is a good product. it pales out my lips perfectly. i love using it as a base for other lip products to go over. it goes on very smoothly and has good lasting power. i wish the color were a bit more pink. this color is pinker than revlon's matte nude attitude, but it still has more orange undertones compared to other pinky nudes. i would repurchase this regardless.
just an ok color. the formula is fine, it lasts like any OPI, but the color didnt really thrill me. it doesnt look like the bottle on the nails, to me it looked more brown than red. i wouldnt repurchase and i wouldnt recommend running out to find this.
Eyeliner -Rimmel - Soft Kohl Kajal Eye Pencil in Jet Black

this product is just ok. its a good cheap product but it doesnt last very long. it fades during the day unless you set it with black e/s. however the product does glide on smoothly and is black in color. it doesnt go on as a greyed black. i would get this again just because its cheap, applies black, and glides on so smoothly.
