I absolutely LOVE this product. The cream is smooth and lightweight, and it manages to moisturize and even out my skin really well without clogging my pores or making my face feel greasy. The pump is easy to use and dispenses just the right amount of lotion. Although the product is definitely expensive, the 100g bottle did last me a little over 6 months of daily use. If you want a high-quality lightweight moisturizer, this is definitely a great option. I would steer clear of online discount sites, as there have been numerous reports of selling a counterfeit version of this product, and suggest purchasing it at duty-free, if possible.
Lip Gloss -New York Color - Liquid Lipshine in Brighton Beach Peach (575)

Overall, I was reasonably impressed with this lipgloss, but it's unlikely to become a staple. The color looks very pretty in the bottle, but comes out too frosty on my lips. If you like the shimmery/frosted look, then this may be the gloss for you. The overly sweet smell is a bit much for me. The applicator is a little flimsy and difficult to work with, but at $5 dollars a bottle, it's hard to complain.
Lip Gloss -Wet 'n' Wild - MegaSlicks Liquid Lipcolor

I decided to give this lip gloss a try because it was so inexpensive and the color looked pretty in the bottle. However, when i put it on my lips, it had a strange purplish/silver metallic tint. To make matters worse, this lipgloss has a strong smell characteristic of cheap makeup, which I found unpleasant. Wet' N' Wild can definitely do better.
Eye Primer -Victoria's Secret - Pro Lasting FX Eyeshadow Primer

This primer works reasonably well. It helps extend the life of my eyeshadows for a few hours and is reasonably priced, but if you want a good eye primer that will truly help your shadows last all day or all night, the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion is definitely the way to go.
Being a general fan of Maybelline mascaras, I decided to give this product a try and was thoroughly disappointed. My eyelashes are fine, and this mascara made them incredibly clumpy. I'm not sure whether this was because of the brush or the mascara itself, but it looked terrible. Using an eyelash brush didn't help either. This is one of the few mascaras I definitely would NOT repurchase or recommend.
