I feel like I'm the only person who can't stand this foundation. I love the original colorstay foundation so I gave in to the hype and bought this. I'm an nc15 in MAC and got the color buff (which is the same color I use in the liquid) and it was a little bit too dark nothing horrible but not a perfect match either so that's strike one. I put it on with my elf powder brush and that was so NOT pretty it clung to every little bit of dry skin on my face and pooled in the larger pores around my nose and there is strike two. I then tried to apply it with a damp sponge and that was just a big streaky mess. Then I tried to apply it with my fingers and still It clung to my dry skin. Strike three. I returned it and don't recommend this for ladies with dry skin.
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express The Mega Plush

I have the wp version in blackest black and I absolutely love it! The gel formula is so light and doesn't clump at ALL. It defines and lengthens my lashes nicely. It doesn't give a lot of volume which isn't a big deal for me but since it is a part of the vloum express line you would think it would. The wand is a bit weird and does take a bit to get used to but once you get used to it it's not so bad.

Love this! I use it almost everyday as my highlight color. the packaging is a bit hard to open but I love it so much I don't even care. The shadow is very soft and pigmented well.
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - Color Icon Trio - I'm Getting Sunburned

I love this palette! The colors look great together and are all super pigmented and soft. My favorite is the lid color followed by the crease color. I agree that it is intimidating when you swatch it but it blends beautifully or you can use it as an eyeliner.
I love this eye shadow it's smooth and pigmented. I hate the packaging though. I don't know how many times I've chipped a nail trying to open it. Oh well it was only a $1 and I can always depot it.
I had my eyebrows waxed last year and the lady ripped off the last half of my eyebrow on the right side. It was a terrible experience and thank goodness my brow has now grown back. I had never really drawn on my eyebrows before but I had to do something because walking around with half an eyebrow was not an option. I found this pencil at Walmart for $5 so I picked it up in medium brown and I loved it! The tip is soo small it made it really easy to mimic actual hairs so it doesn't look obviously drawn on and it stayed put too!
I really like this pencil. I bought it for the high lighter end only. It's a nice peachy pink color and is very creamy. I think this alone is worth the $3 I paid for it. The eyebrow filler part though is too thick to use. I put it on a spooly and comb it through my brows which works well for me since I only need them filled in a bit. The color on these though is crazy I have dark brown eyebrows and the color "light" was a good color match.
Misc Beauty Tools -E.L.F. - Studio Makeup Mist & Set Spray

I bought this because I ran out of my Urban Decay all nighter setting spray (Which I LOVE.) This ELF setting spray was terrible! It smelled very nasty almost like throw up. It didn't come out in a fine mist either so some of my face got very wet while other parts got no product at all. The final straw though is the lasting power. It only lasted 3 maybe 4 hours before I had to touch up. I hate being wasteful though so I'm using it to wet my brushes when I foil my eyeshadow.
Skincare - Face -Equate - Proactiv knock-off system

I bought this generic Proactive system at Walmart for about $11. I've been using it morning and night for 2 weeks now and it cleared up my existing breakout and hasn't dried out my already dry skin. The only thing that sucks about it is the step 1 cleanser bottle. The little hole where the product comes out kept getting clogged so I just popped the little plastic piece out and now it fine.
I love this lipstick! It's such a bright fun color and goes well with my pale warm toned skin. It is a bit drying but not as bad as a matte. The first time I wore it I got compliments galore!
I hated this cleanser. It has a strong smell that I didn't care for and it made my already dry skin even drier (it started flaking on my cheeks and chin). The only reason I gave this a 2 instead of a 1 is because it did clean very well and it didn't break me out any. Maybe it would work better for someone with oily skin.
Conditioner -Unlisted Brand - One 'n Only - Argan Oil Restorative Mask
mmbabies 9/22/2011 2:29:00 PM
Ok so some background info I recently bleached my level 3 (dark brown) hair all the way to a level 7 (lt-med blonde). Needless to say my hair was damaged. I did not leave my hair blonde for very long however because my hair grows fast (bleaching regrowth every 2-3 weeks) so I decided to color my hair back to dark brown. I know I'm an idiot. Thanks to this hair mask though my hair is now back to shiny gorgeousness. I've been using this 2 times a week for 6 weeks now and seriously my hair feels like virgin hair that's never been colored/bleached! I can't possibly say enough good things about this product. I will warn though that this does have a strong scent so smell before you buy.
Ok so the packaging is adorable (I love purple) but that is the only good thing that I can say about this product. It is so wet, clumps like crazy and flakes and smudges through out the day. I really tried to like this mascara. I tried leaving the cap off so the mascara would dry a little, tried wiping the wand off before applying tried combing through my lashes after applying but it just did not work for me.
I really liked this mascara it's cheap and doesn't clump much but it smells so terrible and dries up so quick once it's been opened. I will not be repurchasing.
This is a pretty good foundation the best one I've found at the drugstore. I'm NC15 and I wear the shade Buff and it's a pretty good match not exact but still pretty darn good. The one thing that I absolutely hate is the packaging. There is no pump so a lot ends up getting wasted and it's very messy if your not careful. So overall I like it but wish like hell it had a pump.
