I had heard good things about this mascara so I had to try it. I've gone through bottle after bottle of mediocre mascaras that just weren't doing it for me and I have to say this one has really impressed me. I don't know if it's the brush, but it does an excellent job accentuating my long lashes and doesn't go on clumpy. If you're looking for a great volumizing mascara this is the one.

This liner was really inexpensive and works great on my brows. The color is perfect and it lasts for quite awhile. A+
I haven't had much luck with liquid foundations but I decided to give this one a shot. For a drugstore brand it is really good. It has excellent coverage, goes on easy/not cakey, and doesn't feel icky on your skin. The bottle could be better, as it can be a pain to pour out, and as someone with extremely dry skin I have to make sure my skin is super moisturized before wearing this or it ends up looking dry/flaky.
I was curious to try this product and was pretty disappointed. The packaging is terrible and I've already lost half the powder because of spilling. Plus the useless brush takes up half of it. If you use that brush to apply it you're going to end up looking like you rubbed dirt on your face. The powder itself was alright, kind of shimmery for my liking. All in all it wasn't worth the money.

I use this moisturizer daily and it works well. I have really dry skin and I put it on after I get out of the shower, and it hydrates my skin well, and smells so good, as well as giving it a nice shine almost tanned look. I even use it on my face sometimes, and it hasn't caused breakouts or anything. Not to mention it is super cheap.
My lipsmacker obsession died off when I turned 14 but this is the exception. I keep it in my purse at all times as my go-to gloss. I love the smell, the subtle color, and surprisingly how well it moisturizes. Love it.
I have tried probably every eyeliner out their and then some and this is hands down my favorite. Half the price of the MAC equivalent and works better in my opinion. I never thought I would find this quality in a drugstore brand. It is often out of stock when I go looking for it so it seems other people feel the same way. It goes on great, and stays perfect all day. My search for a great black eyeliner is over. I'm stocking up on this one.

I had heard a lot of rave reviews about this moisturizer and have long been in search of a good one, as I have pretty dry skin so I was excited to pick it up and see for myself. I have to say I was disappointed. It's not terrible but I don't get the hype. It does a decent job but no better than any other brand I have tried, and I find it kind of runny. It gets a 'meh' from me. I expected better for the price.
This palette is really great. There are so many looks you can create with it and I find it much more versatile than the too dolly quad. Even after getting a gorgeous 120 palette with every color you could imagine I still find myself going back to this palette. The creme royale is a great base/inner eye color to blend with, and stylin' is such a gorgeous shade of purple. I regularly use paradisco to highlight under my brows and lucky tom is great for smokey eyes. It's cute, compact, and one of my favorites from the hello kitty line.

This has become my go-to, signature scent. I wear it daily and never get tired of it. So pretty- girly but not childish. My only complaint is that it wears off fairly quickly. I just bought another bottle for backup so I can stop using it so sparingly. Would highly recommend.
I love this product. The smell reminds me of that banana medicine you used to get as a kid, that I thought was delicious. It can be used as a shampoo or a body wash and works really well for either. It lathers well and I love how the smell lingers afterward. It's a bit pricey but definitely worth it. I wish it was available all year.
I loooove this colour. The moment I saw it I knew I had to have it and I'm actually wearing it right now. It's the perfect light green and looks great with my skin tone. Unfortunately that is the end of its redeeming qualities. I agree with the overall consensus. This polish is so not the OPI quality I am used to. I literally spend an average of two hours painstakingly applying this polish to guaranteed frustrating and mediocre results. It is streaky and drippy and takes at least three coats to achieve the bottle color, often resulting in a coat that doesn't dry properly and chips easily. You have to really love this color to be willing to deal with the hassle. It's a shame such a gorgeous color has such a crappy formula, I hope they fix it. I do adore the colour though, which is THE only reason I am giving it a generous rating. I'd rather pay someone to apply it for me.
