You know what, I actually really liked the feeling when applied. Some people found the wet feeling a little gross, I found it refreshing. I think it had decent coverage. However, I HATED the sparkles. I felt like a little girl with sparkles all over my face, it ruins the "natural" look and just looked stupid to me. I found that it was way too shimmery and that totally ruined everything else for me. I will not be repurchasing based on that.
Lip Treatments -Maybelline - Baby Lips in Cherry Me

Come on, how cute are these? This one is my favourite colour of them all, and I love the scent! It gives a nice red tint, smells so yummy and SPF 20! I use it with a simple black mascara just to highlight my eyes and lips without looking too dramatic. I found it did moisturize my lips as well. I love it! Couldn't find any cons personally.
Cleansers -Aveeno - Clear Complexion Cream Cleanser

I love how gentle this cleanser is, as well as the scent and the microbeads. It didn't clear up acne as much as I would of liked, or prevent breakouts but it did reduce redness. I think this product would be wonderful with someone with drier skin because of how much moisture it provides. However, I will not be repurchasing because it did nothing for my oily T-Zone.
I was actually really impressed with this cleanser! Personally, I love the ice feeling. The icey effect does get into your eyes but I find in invigorating, but I can see where some people might find it uncomfortable. It really does remove all the dirt and makeup. My blemishes have been clearing up and my face feels so clean after use. The only downside is that it is very drying. Last night I used it before bed and I had to get up and apply a night cream because my face was uncomfortably tight! Other than the drying, (moisturizer; quick fix for the problem!) I think it is a great cleanser. I probably will repurchase just because it clears my skin so well.
My FAVOURITE eyeshadow. The colour looks gorgeous on my skintone and I love how much I can do with it. I can do a bronze-y smokey eye or play around with golds and pinks for a sunset feel. This is the eyeshadow I use the most, love it.
I love fiber mascaras so I was really excited to try this one! The application was a little messy, so I wasn't thrilled. But after I got rid of the clumps and cleaned it up the results were beautiful! I have fairly long, thick eyelashes with a natural curl but this vamped it up! Gave me the right amount of volume and length. It did seem to flake after a while, so I probably won't be repurchasing based on that and how hard the application was. It wasn't horrible, but wasn't great.
BB Cream -Garnier - BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector - Medium/Deep

My Mom bought this was me and I was thrilled because I have been wanting to try on these BB Creams that seem to be all the rave right now. I was a little nervous to try because I didn't think the colour would match. I went ahead and tried it because foundation is too heavy to wear in the summer and I like to keep my makeup to a minimum during the daytime in the summer. I was very pleased! I didn't have to apply my regular moisturizer and I LOVE the fact that it has SPF. My skin is pretty oily in my T-Zone, but this managed to moisturize without making my skin looking oily. However, I do have some blemishes on my forhead so I would of liked a little more coverage. It did blur the blemishs a bit and didn't break me out so I can't complain; I'll have to try with a concealor. The colour matched my skin well, but it isn't for everyone. A larger range in colours would be nice. Perfect for summer! I put on this and mascara and I'm ready to go.
