I tried few generic brands which didn't work me for so I finally gave it a go to purchase the real deal. It gives me flawless results, truly amazing. The downfall was when I washed it the first time, the bottom flat part started ripping apart which was quiet disappointing. And I'm not too pleased how expensive this thing is. I'll only repurchase during sale/coupon.
I ran out of It's a 10 so bought this one instead since it was on sale. This is a perfect spray if you are looking for lightweight detangler/conditioner. It didn't moisturize my hair as much as It's a 10 but love how it doesn't weigh hair down and conditions your hair w/out feeling sticky or filmy. I would definitely repurchase.
Eyeliner -Rimmel - Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner in Nude

Even though I have the Stila kajal in Topaz, I thought I give this one a try since it's cheaper and heard last longer on the waterline. This stayed on my waterline for 8 hrs with a eye primer. ! I haven't worn Topaz in a while but I don't remember staying on my waterline for this long. I have also purchased Rimmel Scandaleyes in blk and taupe, truly amazing bargains!
Eyeliner -Stila - Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner

Finally a godsend! HG eyeliner! Where have you been all my life! I thought I tried it all but through friends' recommendations, I'm in love with this liner. This thing does not budge on my oily eyelids. I heard it dries out after 2 months but it's ok, I'm stocking up!
Brows -Tarte - Amazonian Clay Waterproof Brow Mousse & Brow Brush
makeupaddict76 4/8/2013 10:25:00 AM
This stuff is amazing! Brows are my least fav doing makeup. I don't like to spend too much time on my brows so I was looking for something that's easy to use and effective at defining them. It's really pigmented, after drawing them with few strokes, I use the spoolie to blend in the colors to look more natural. It's so quick and easy. I had this product over a year and it has not dried out yet. I purchased the Rich Brown which it very dark brown with no reddish undertones which I have been looking for. I haven't tested under water but I have pretty oily skin and it stays on all day.
Eyeliner -Maybelline - Eye Studio Master Precise Ink Pen Liner
makeupaddict76 4/8/2013 10:02:00 AM
I'm surprised with all the negative reviews. I'm a liquid eyeliner junkie! Since I have hooded eyes, I like to draw them in quiet thick so I go through liners pretty quickly. I have tried many drugstore both gel, crayons, pens and liquid liners. Some of my old favs are from Milani and Revlon. But this is the best liquid liner I have tried. It does not smudge, transfer, fast drying, precise, easy to use and doesn’t flake. I don’t have to shake the product before each use, I’m always able to draw in evenly with no issues. Also noticed, as frequently I use this product, it lasted longer than my other liners, usually up to 3 months. I have very oily lids so I always use my liners with a primer but I didn’t notice any smudging not unless after 8 hrs or so. I’ll keep purchasing this and stocking it up. Love this!
Pressed Powders -Rimmel - Stay Matte Pressed Powder (ALL)
makeupaddict76 3/22/2013 11:28:00 AM
I have used other powders such as MAC blot, careblend, MUFE high def, Dior forever, Maybelline dream matte, etc. I've been loving this powder, mainly for oil control. It can look cakey if you apply too much. But for me, it really controls my oily t-zone throughout the day. Yes packaging sucks but for the price it does the job. I'm around NC25-30 and used Sandstorm. I've recently tried Translucent which works as well. BTW, Riteaid is having 40% off Rimmel products this week so I stocked up on these for only $3.41
Blush -Sonia Kashuk - Beautifying Blush in Flamingo
makeupaddict76 6/14/2012 9:14:00 AM
Since I loved Sunset so much I decided to try Flamingo which is a cool-toned, matte pink. This is perfect pink for my medium-toned skin. The problems I have with DS blushes are that they are either not as pigmented or does not blend smoothly but this is not the case. I did own the older square packaged ones but I think these are so much better, sleek and thin. And they might have changed the formula since this doesn't break me out as the old packaged one did.
Eyeliner -Laura Mercier - Kohl Pencil in Brown Copper
makeupaddict76 6/5/2012 10:14:00 AM
This is a med-dark brown liner w/copper flecks. I think will look great on any eye color and definitely brings out my brown eyes. Texture is smooth and creamy, doesn't tug. I didn't have problems w/staying on my waterline, maybe 6 hrs w/a primer. Definitely want to check out other colors from LM.
Eyeliner -Pixi - Endless Silky Eye Pen (all shades)
makeupaddict76 6/4/2012 3:12:00 PM
Highly impressed with this liner. I was looking for brown or taupe, long lasting liner since UD underground didn't stay on my waterline. Picked up color Cafe Gold which is similar to Laura Mercier Brown Copper, beautiful brown w/copper flecks. It definitely long lasting, need a good makeup remover to remove this liner. Suppose to be Paraben-free, mineral oil-free, preservative-free and hypoallergenic. $15 at Target
Scored this at Nordstrom Rack for only $12, what a bargin! Been using Sin or Juju on my lids, no brush needed, so quick and easy. Without a primer, last on my oily lids for about 7-8 hrs. Amazing!
This is similar to my fav CG Shocking Pink but not as neon, toned down version but still bright hot pink. This is my second Zoya polish and I'm so impressed with the quality of their polishes. It's so easy to apply, formula is smooth and never streaky and staying power is so impressive. I think I had this polish on longer than 2 wks w/out chipping. My fav summer pedicure color!
Lipstick -Revlon - Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain - Charm
makeupaddict76 6/4/2012 12:17:00 PM
Charm is a beautiful light peachy nude color, glides on smoothly but didn't find it moisturizing and separates after 1 hr and leave a weird flim on top of my lips. I was excited since this is my first lip pencil but doesn't stick or stain my lips and staying power was just horrible. Maybe I'll try it w/a lip liner and a gloss over top since I like the color so much...
I've watched few reviews on this and had to try it out and I love it! I do like Revlon Colorstay liquid but I think this is better because -Does a better job mattifying my combo skin. I didn't even blot for 6 hrs in 80 degree weather, which is amazing. Will try staying power in 90 degree weather. -It's not too much pain to take off. Comes off easily w/makeup wipes and cleanser. -Nice creamy, smooth texture, easy to blend. -Didn't feel cakey on my face(make sure to blend out) but I'm used to full coverage foundations so didn't bother me. -Great coverage, no concealer needed I have alot of long lasting high-end foundations(LM Silk, Lancome 24hr, MUFE, Chanel, Dior, ELDW, NARS) but this is far superior in terms of staying power. Love this!

Love this lipstick! This reminds me my fav Mac lipstick in Hue but little bit cooler. If you love nude or light pinky lipsticks, try this out.
