Absolutely amazing! I've never received more compliments about a fragrance ever. The only thing I don't like is the price, but that's probably because $30 is a lot for a high schooler :-P Definitely worth it though. The best compliment I got was "You smell like... Sophisticated cotton-candy," which totally made my day. Seriously, if you like soft, sweet perfumes, buy this. Right now. Are you buying it yet? Because you should be.
I love these eyeliners. Avon does so well with the whole Glimmersticks line. I use G102 (Flashy Copper) for my eyebrows and G501 (Golden Diamond) to line my waterline. I have yet to try the lipliners, but if they're anywhere near as awesome as the eyeliners, I'm sure they're worth purchasing. Not to mention, they're so inexpensive! I definitely recommend them to anyone who asks.
First of all, I will start off by saying one positive thing about this mascara. It certainly darkens lashes. But other than that, there are very very few upsides to this mascara. It clumps, doesn't lengthen, and doesn't volumize. I feel like it's false advertising or something, because in the ads, you can tell that the models are definitely wearing false lashes or have been edited to seem like their lashes have been lengthened and volumized. However, I experienced none of these promised characteristics. Luckily, I hadn't purchased it myself so I didn't lose $7 or however much it costed. I just feel bad for my sister, haha.
Mascara -L'Oreal - Telescopic Explosion in Blackest Black

This mascara is awful. It could simply be the formula of the mascara, as it is just as bad as the normal telescopic one. But the little ball brush makes it even worse. The packaging is cute, I'll give the company that, but otherwise, an awful product.
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Color Tattoo 24hr Cream Gel Shadow

First of all, this cream eyeshadow lasts a long time. I swatched it on my arm before I went to bed last night, and it's still there a good 12 hours later, so the long-lasting aspect of it is definitely true. However, the shadow has too much shimmer in it, so it really shows any fine lines or imperfections you may have. The packaging is a little heavy, as it's made of glass, but it looks pretty, so that's a plus. I would generally recommend this to someone, but mostly just as an eyeshadow base. The white color makes any pigment you put on top of it pop like crazy, so I'd definitely say use it as a base for any vibrant eye look you want.
My mom bought this mascara a while ago, and I just got around to using it. I hate it. Sure, it gives you great length and the packaging is adorable, but it clumps like nobody's business. Every time I use it, I have to wait a good five minutes for it to dry so I can waste another five minutes running an eyelash comb through my lashes. All in all, I would never recommend this mascara to anybody. Even my enemies.
Blush -Maybelline - Dream mousse blush in soft plum [DISCONTINUED]

Ever since I started using makeup, I've generally shied away from cream blushes, staying with the safety of powder blushes. But recently I saw this on sale at my local CVS and decided to try it out. I instantly fell in love with it because even with my super pale skin, the soft plum shade gave me a lovely flush without looking too garish. The mousse goes on smoothly and blends well, and I even like the packaging. Some reviewers don't like the heavy glass pot it comes in, but I think it looks so cute sitting on my vanity, so that's definitely a plus. I would recommend this product to whoever asked about it.
Concealers -Maybelline - Mineral Power Natural Perfecting Concealer

I absolutely adore this concealer. I use it every single day, and it is amazing for covering blemishes and dark under eye circles. I also use it to cover redness on my eyelids, and it works so well. It's perfect for achieving a flawless-looking complexion, especially when paired with a tinted moisturizer and translucent powder on top. I highly recommend it to everyone. The only downside is that I bought it on sale, which made it about half price, otherwise it was rather expensive for its small size.
