Lipstick -Unlisted Brand - L'bel - Couleur Luxe Supreme XP Lipstick

This product's description says that it is long lasting... and it definitely is. It applies smoothly and has a creamy satin finish. After a time of wearing it, it turns into a gorgeous stain but with the same intensity and color of the original application. The stain last so long that even after trying to remove it with an oil-based makeup remover, and sleeping, you can still see a trace of it. It doesn't dry the lips because it's moisturizing, and has SPF 8. L'bel changed the design of the tube and the name of it. I have the old one, and the shade is "Harmonie" (a berry-like fuchsia).
Lipstick -Maybelline - Color Sensational 145 Plaza Pink

Perfect for everyday use! I use this when I don't want my lips to be bare but I don't want to apply a vibrant and/or bold lipstick (I only have reds, bright pinks, and violets, and in-betweens). It's creamy and moisturizing yet it has a lovely pink neutral tone.
Lip Liners -Unlisted Brand - Real Colors - Hydra Lips Waterproof Gel Lip Liner

I bought this at Sally's in "Petal to the Metal", a matte dark hot pink/fuchsia. I have used it several times, mostly as a base with Illamasqua's Corrupt lipstick on top (some people has given me compliments when I'm using this combination), and it works really well. It is definitely waterproof and has a smooth application. Can't wait to try other products by this brand!
An average product. Not the best, not the worst. It does work with the volume of the lashes but it is clumpy and doesn't last much in a hot and humid weather like the one I have to experience every day (sucks to live in the tropics).
Very liquid formula. Doesn't separate the lashes. Doesn't last. It's clumpy. The curved brush is uncomfortable when applying (at least for my eye). I stopped using it because it did nothing for my lashes, only a little bit of tint.
I was looking for a new mascara after many failures with cheap ones. Originally I was going to buy Sephora's Lash Plumper (I have used it before and I liked the results) but, as always, I took my time reading all products’ descriptions and ended up with this one. For my surprise, I am utterly satisfied with the results even though my lashes don't seem to be longer than they were (I don't care about that). I love how this mascara works with my lashes, giving volume and extension and even a little curl without clumps or looking overly done. It gives that perfect natural but beautiful finish that I love in mascaras. The brush is a generic one (thankfully because I hate curved ones). It's easy to remove and its lasting power is really good.
I bought the non-waterproof one and I hate it. I stopped using it. It was a waste of money.
Gorgeous bright blue pink; extremely matte and opaque! Definitely not for everyone because it is so bold (and you should know how to wear it). I love it!
"Kontrol" is a creamy deep blue violet with a satin finish. It has a little shimmer but it's almost unnoticeable and it disappears easily. Depending on the layers you apply, it's the type of lip product you get: it goes from a sheer blueish stain to a deep violet moisturizing lip color. It's very versatile and different from other Illamasqua's lipsticks. If you're into violet lips, you must try this one!
This is a highly pigmented cream with a grayish neutral tone. The texture is SUPER creamy; blendable and easy to apply. The best thing about it is that you can use it on the eyes, cheeks and lips! I still haven't used it as a blush/highlighter because I'm not so fond of those... The only thing that disappointed me a bit was the lasting power considering that it says "water-resistant", and it creases a little. I love it though.
Great for a fast, daily cleanse... not for deep cleansing. Looking for something just like this but cheaper.
Not the best package for this kind of product but overall, this primer works really well. It makes my eyeshadows last a lot longer, make them look bright and vibrant, easy to apply, just a little bit works a long way... ah, I like it a lot!
Lip Treatments -Burt's Bees - Rejuvenating Lip Balm with Acai Berry

Feels great; smells great. Love the purple cap of the tube and how easily it does its job. Burt's Bees always enthralls me with their lip balms. Definitely recommend it.
Like everyone else, I got a sample of this as a birthday gift from Sephora. At first, I was skeptic because I got bored of mascara with a brush-like applicator instead of the latex one. BUT this mascara changed my mind again. It's pretty good for volume... and I wish it did more with my curl! I would buy it if it were a little cheaper? (I think it's silly to spend a lot of money on mascaras.)
Nice cheap product. Great for contouring. It has a little bit of shimmer, almost unnoticeable. I haven't used it as a tanner because I like looking pale! But it's true that if you use too much of it, you can look orange.
