Eye Shadow -Cover Girl - Eye Enhancers Trio - Shimmering Sands

Today was my first time using this trio, even though I bought it a long time ago. Let me just say this trio is amazing and gorgeous. I use the middle shade all over my lid, the darker brown in my crease, and the last one on the right as a brow bone highlight. I absolutely love this trio!
I really wanted this toner to work for me, but sadly it did not. It was readily available at my local winn-dixie, cheap, and the main point of it was to refine pores. Perfect, just perfect. But it was not as perfect as i thought it would be. It broke me out like crazy. I had thought it was another product, so I stopped using it, but the pimples were still there a week after only one use. I then turned to using my Queen Helen's mint julep mask as an over night spot treatment for a couple of days- did not work. So I had to turn to this product as a suspect. I decided not to use it that night I had figured it was this. Next day one of the pimples went away, and the rest weren't as angry, but being me i thought it may have been a coincidence, so I put it on again that night. Next morning another pimple popped up in the same place the other went away at. So I was like I'm done. The pimples subdued in a couple of days with a little help from neutrogena's blackhead eliminating scrub. After i was all clear, i gave it one more chance ( don't judge me) used it that night, next morning THREE freakin' new pimples, wonderful I know. Right into the trash it went. This was the first product to ever break me out , and you know what ,it didn't even help my pores.
Mascara -Cover Girl - Lash Perfection Volumizing Mascara

This is my HG mascara!! I love it soo much! It separates my lashes, gives great volume AND length, and it holds a curl and gives curl. It has a wonderful formula, also it doesn't smudge nor flake. The wand is plastic, which i love, and can really get into those inner lashes. I could sing praises about this mascara all day. Cover girl you have yet another amazing mascara, good job!
Cleansers -Biore - Revitalize 4-in-1 Self-Foaming Cleanser

I don't hate this cleanser, but I certainly don't love it. I bought it because the biore skin-boosting night serum's box suggested using them in conjuction with each other, I now know this was just a ploy on Biore's part to get people to buy more of their products, but I was the sucker who fell for it :p. Back to the review, this did not take off ALL of my makeup, kept on my eyeliner and mascara ( neither were waterproof) and took off blush and eyeshadow (note I don't wear fondation, concealer, things like that, so i can't tell you if it gets that off.) . When I first bought this it stung my eyes like crazy, I had to use visine after every use. Also it is extremly runny, the foam gets everywhere nose,mouth (yuck!!), and it will sometimes start to run down my neck. In conclusion I will not be buying it again, i've decided to use it up by using it as a second cleansing after my cleansing oil, it's almost gone lasted I would say a half a year, for me that is, i stopped using it for a long time.
I love the effect it gives. Mind you the effect won't always come out the way you expect, but that just makes every nail unique. The product can start to clump on the brush, but all you have to do is give the bottle a good shake and it's all better.
Best. Mascara. Ever! Atleast in my opinion. I have never tried those mascaras that claim to give a false lash effect (I.e. last blast, maybelline falsies) but let me just say this defiently gives you that effect. It gives AMAZING length in about 2-3 coats, and it gives great volume. The wand is plastic, and it can really get those hard to reach lashes. But the best part of the wand, atleast to me, is that it's thin and long so I can put mascara on my bottom lashes without it smudging to my under eye area. Speaking of smudging, it doesn't at all, or flake, or clump. This is my first of two holy grail mascaras, the second is covergirl's lash perfection.
I just used this scrub for the first time, and let me tell you: I love this scrub!!! I immediatly noticed that my face appeared much brighter, and my skin, ooh my skin, was sooo soft. I literally went " oh my gosh!" at the texture of it, i couldn't stop rubbing it.i do have to say i fount it to be a bit abbresive , it has alot of little fine grains, so people with sensitive skin should be cautious. I haven't tried the st. Ives so i can't compare the two, but frankly i don't wanna since this is such a wonderful product. I will update if anything bad happens, but fingers crossed that nothing will. ( I stole this from my sister, well news flash to her: You are not getting it back :p )
Skincare - Face -Biore - skin boosting night serum

I love this product! It feels just wonderful on my face. I put this on everynight as the first step of my skincare rountine, and sometimes i dont even put on moisturizer because of the moisture this product provides. Also this is the only product i put on my neck- besides sunscreen of course- and it feels so soft. The reason i knocked off a point is because this product isn't that necessary. If you have a good moisturizer it can replace this. But i pick this over my moisturizer.
