I got this at Sephora in a sample size because it was my birthday. I use it as a highlighter under my eyes and on the cheekbones. I wouldn't use it as an overall tinted moisturizer as advertised. Well, unless you have flawless skin.
Misc Beauty Tools -E.L.F. - Mechanical Eyelash Curler

It definitely curls my eyelashes. In fact, it does a great job of curling. The reason I gave it 3 lippies instead of 5 is the reason I will not be buying it again: it takes off my mascara when I try to curl it for the second time. I make sure my mascara is dry before curling them. After application the eyelashes start to fall back down, but a second curl usually does the trick. Well, when I curl it, it takes the mascara right off.

The color is beautiful. I have been looking for a perfect summer coral/punch colored lip gloss, and this color was it. Be warned though, it is in no way long wear. It slides right off the lips after one sip of a drink, or peck of a kiss. You will definitely have to re-applying constantly.
Maybelline Baby Lips is comparable to Softlips. I do prefer Softlips over it because it's a bit silkier. I bought Baby Lips in Quenched. It lived up to it's name and it gives a beautiful sheen.
It's a steal at this price! It has major staying power. I accidentally fell asleep with my makeup on and the eyeliner didn't budge. The upside: if you don't like the product, no sweat, you're only out $3.
I have a lot of redness and acne scars on my cheeks. It seemed nothing would give enough full coverage for my skin problem. I tried the M.A.C. Pro Longwear concealer first and it was too sheer for me. Once I tried the Studio Finish I fell in love! The color was a perfect match for my yellow undertones (NC25). I'm so happy with the product. Things you should know: This is better suited for combination/oily skin. It would be ideal to use it for skin problems, not under eye circles. The concealer is full coverage.
I ran out of my MAC Studio Fix and needed a liquid foundation in a hurry (MAC was closed. I went to Target). I'm an NC20-25. I have yellow undertones. I brought my MAC foundation with me to make sure the color comparisons were a match. I found a perfect color match in Vanilla. Once I put it on I didn't like it. It was too orange, not enough coverage (I like medium coverage), and wasn't buildable. Here are some things you need to know: It is more comparable to a tinted moisturizer. The foundations have yellow/orange undertones. The foundation oxidizes so you might want to buy a shade lighter. It is better suited for women with NW35 skin tones and daker. It is NOT suited for women with pink undertones, or a light skin tone. It is not a buildable foundation. *Update* It made my skin break out! I now have a couple of cystic pimples. I do not get acne, and haven't since high school (9 years ago). The only change in my skin routine was this foundation.
