This is a average lipstick but thats what you expect for a cheap product. Its a pretty pink nudey color that would suit all skin types, if you have pigmented lips, like I do. I wouldnt reccomend this. I find it kind of drying to my lips, also it does not last long at all on me, In a hour, I am already reapplying it. I expected alot from this because of the raves. I'ts just ok to me.
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Stylish Smokes in Natural Smokes

This is below average, I really wanted this little quad and had being eyeing it up for awhile. huge dissapointment, The main reason I wanted this was for the lid color, a shimmery taupe color that I heard was a good dupe for Macs satin taupe, BOOM BOOM, two thumbs down. It barely has any pigment to it, and like the previous reviews before me have stated, you really have to pack it on and thats even if you use a base. The two matte colors in the quad are ok, will I repurchase. HELL NO!
Pressed Powders -Maybelline - Dream Matte Pressed Powder
makeupobssessed 1/22/2010 3:41:00 AM
I love this powder, it really has saved me in these summer months. I have gone through 3 compacts already. What I love about this is: the amazing matte finish I get and how flawless my foundation looks, not to mention shine control. I have uneven coloring, sunspots, freckles and dark circles. I dont use concealer!! at all. I wear studio fix fluid and this powder, and you can not tell of any imperfections. I can not leave the house without this. I use it for setting my foundation and I chuck a spare in my handbag for touch ups. What I dont like about this product is you hit pan within 3 weeks if you use it everyday, hence why I have gone through 3. In addition I dont really like the swivel like others have mentioned. it really is annoying!!
Eyeliner -Prestige - Total Intensity Eyeliner Deepest Black
makeupobssessed 1/14/2010 12:41:00 AM
DING DING DING. This must be the best eyeliner I have ever used, and I have tried so so many over the years, When looking for a eyeliner I usually look for a water resistant, creamy formulation and durability. I hate having panda eyes and having to reapply eyeliner, I am just too lazy! Well This eyeliner has not smudged, its still on me 7hrs later as if i just put it on. I live in Sunny Queehsland with hot tropical weather and most waterproof eyeliners smudge on my lower lashline within 2hrs. This is so impressive to me, does not tug on waterline and the eyeliner really is a intense black. you have to try this!!
I am so surprised at the mis match of reviews on this product, it just goes to show that one product might work for some, but maybe not for others. FOR ME: I love this, I have dry skin and this serum instantly absorbs and locks in moisture, such a god sent! Ive noticed over time my skin has become alot smoother and softer in combination with other garnier products. I use this more so for a PRIMER for my foundation has a similar texture and no need for moisturizing before applying primer, which I love!! less time needed for face rountine. It does have a strong scent more than other moisturisers but really it is quite pleasant. I love this, a great affordable moisturizer/serum/primer in one.
This is a really great product, a makeup remover and cleanser in one: YAY. This foaming cleanser effectively took all oil, dirt and makeup I had on my face. I wear quite full coverage makeup whether it be my foundation or eyemakeup, and this cleanser seemlessly removed it! my face feels so clean and fresh after usage and there was no left over residue, *This cleanser is *oil free, *soap free, *alcohol free and *hypo allergenic. All good things in my book, I would definately repurchase, This is so easy to find and is cheap!
Fragrances -Elizabeth Arden - Mariah Carey FOREVER

WOW I love this!! its a young florally girly scent and it smells so gorgeous, it truly reminds me a of juicy couture, and I absolutely love that, im a little surprised and impressed because mariah careys frangrance line has always had a little musk to it but this scent is so fresh and summery. This ones definately a keeper.
I love this scent, everytime I wear this I instantly feel beautiful and put together. To me it is very summery and florally, I like the body lotion aswell and layer it onto my skin for extra Uumph, If you love the flower gardiner like I do, you will love this. Its truly gorgeous.
First of all I get alot of perfume given to me either as promotion items or as gifts and I have quite the stash. let me tell you I hate this scent, I had to give it to a friend, or I would have chucked this in the trash. it is way to sweet and spicy for my liking almost smells like lollies. This is not a age appropriate kind of scent. what I mean is: it would suit middle school girls and smells kind of cheap. Sorry but im only giving my honest opinion
This is gorgeous, I have gone through 2 bottles and really adore this stuff. I only wear this at night because I feel it might be a tad to heavy for daytime wear. To describe this scent it has a slight musk and white rose to it, but very faint rose. it lasts on my skin for a good 6hrs and 4hrs during summer. I have had so many compliments particaly from men wearing this frangrance. This might be my signature scent
This frangrance has a very summery sweet scent, it has strong notes of fruit, particualy mango/pawpaw/peach. it reminds me of a tropical island holiday wrapped in a bottle. Im beginning to really like this one.
Eyeliner -Bourjois - Regard Effet Duochrome Eyeliner
makeupobssessed 11/29/2009 12:28:00 PM
I have this in 57 noir emeraude, a green/black/metalic color. They are really smooth, creamy in texture and have a great apperance of looking like you have blended two colors together. I really like these. They dont last as long as high end liners but they have a really pretty application.
Well these eyshadow pallets are dirt cheap. I think I paid $4.99/$6.99 for each compact. They contain 8 colors in all, and have colors that will all compliment each other. All the eyeshadow pallets have shimmery/satin finishes with no mattes, I would have appreciated if the line came out in more wearable daytime colors but the ones that are available are really fun to play with. as for quality they are relatively good, they are really pigmented and creamy which to me is surprising because BYS cosmetics are probably your cheapest makeup here in australia, and have had poor formulas in the past. You do have to work with them to blend but I am giving these a rating of 4 lippies, because for the price, they truly are good. overall im really please with them.
Wow this blush might be in HG status. I picked this up on sale recently and I am so glad I did. I have about 40 blushes at the moment and this one by far, blows them out the water. It is so pigmented that only a light hand is needed and is so easily blendable. To describe the color, its almost a terracota brick color with light flecks of gold through it. This blush would really compliment ladies with tanned skin. it might be a bit to much for those who are pale skinned.
I love this scent, and to many it can be bold and over powering and for many years I have gone back and forth between perfumes. it is very pungent and spicy and smells expensive but it truly is unique. I love the original version of this. The one in the purple bottle and green box. I always feel very grown up wearing this.
