Eye Makeup Remover -Lumene - Absolute Away Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover

Great product. For $4 it has replaced my $27 Lancome Bi-Facil. That's really saying something because I never thought I would find anything that removes makeup as well as Bi-Facil. I use cotton pads, and a couple of swipes removed my mascara and eyeliner. Give it a try!
I love this shade of blue. On my nails, the shade is the same as it looks in the bottle. No chipping after one week, but I never have chipping with Revlon polish. I wouldn't buy again only because I'll never finish this bottle, and I don't buy trendy colors a second time. Best of all it was only $1, so even if I hadn't liked it, I wouldn't have lost any money on it.
I'm in love with this polish. I bought three different shades of blue, an orange and a green shade. So far, so good. The colors are true to how they look in the bottle, and it has incredible staying power. It's been about two weeks and there is NO CHIPPING! It may be because I use a really good topcoat, but I don't know for sure. I bought five bottles when they were on sale at Walgreens for $.99. Also, I believe this is a product of Revlon.
Lipstick -Revlon - Super Lustrous Toast of New York

Nice shade that will compliment most skin tones. It is as good as any lipstick that cost me quadruple the price. It also has staying power. Not sure why some say it's for a particular season vs daytime or nightime, but it's a great daytime look for me. Best of all is the dirt cheap price along with a quality product.
I tried Revlon Super Lustrous (creme) because it was on sale. It is as good, if not better than other high-end brands I usually purchase. The color lasted through eating and drinking coffee. It has definitely replaced MAC and Lancome for me, unless I cannot find the shade I want in Revlon. So far I have two different shades, and paid $2.99 for one & $4.54 for the other and I'll be buying another one today. I'm very happy with this product.
Lip Gloss -New York Color - Extreme Lip Glider DOWNTOWN BROWN

I wear this on top of my matte lipstick. It adds a nice gloss over my lipstick, if that's the look I want that day. It's definitely "dirt cheap". Just give a slight squeeze to the tube or too much comes out.

I love this gloss because it adds a nice shine over my matte lipstick. I've never worn it by itself but for the price it serves it's purpose for me. You only have to give it a little squeeze otherwise too much gloss will come out of the tube. For the way I use it, it's as good as the more expensive glosses.
Lipstick -Maybelline - Color Sensational in Plum Paradise

This by far the best drugstore lipstick ever! The color is vibrant and has great staying power. Generally I'm not a fan of drugstore brands but I tried it because I had a $2 coupon making it a whopping $3.49. Even without a coupon it's only $5.49 at Target. Maybelline has stepped up the quality of their lipsticks. It's nice to find a bargain instead of paying $20+ for lipstick.
This is my first bottle of Insta-Dry, and I am happy with this product so far. It seems like I never have time to let my nails dry, so I very seldom put polish on them. I polished my nails, went to bed and they looked perfect this morning. Other reviews say it gets goopy fast, but it's cheap enough to buy again if this happens. **Update: I'm still faithful to Insta-Dry, and will buy it until they discontinue it!
Mascara -Maybelline - XXL volume+length microfiber mascara

This is one of the best that I have used, second only to Lancome mascara. One appealing factor is that it's about $15 less! It makes my lashes appear really long and it separates my lashes really well. I've never had a problem with the white primer showing; the mascara covers the primer in one sometimes two strokes. The only time I've had problems with flaking or lashes breaking is when I've used waterproof mascara.
