This is such an amazing red. Careful though, if you don't like super bright reds, stay away. But if you're like me and LOVE vibrant reds, you will love this! Such a gorgeous lipstick for the price.
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Eyestudio quad - Taupe Temptress

These eyeshadows were horrible. Flat out sucked. Color payoff, fallout, blending-- all terrible!! So not worth the purchase. What a waste of 10 bucks. I've heard good things about some of the other ones, but this one did NOT live up to the good words about these quads. SAVE YOUR MONEY.
This truly is a beautiful color. Super pigmented, easy to apply and blend, and gives that nice pearly finish. I would not suggest wearing this alone on the eyelid unless you are more tanned/darker skin. It can look kind of muddy and not that great on lighter skin if it's worn alone. But looks amazing paired with dark matte browns on the outer corner.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero

This product is so overrated. It is creamy and nice to put on, yes, but not only does it smudge and not stay on all day, but my eyes are so allergic to this!! (along with a few other colors of this pencil). My eyes are gross and weepy within half an hour wearing this :( So if you have sensitive eyes to certain makeup, stay away.
I love this paint pot. It is the perfect color and eye shadow base that I would call my "eyelid concealer". It totally evens out any discoloration on my eyes and preps them so nicely for shadow. Only problem I have is that I have oily eye lids, and it can definitely crease a little bit if it's hotter outside. But on a normal day I have no problem.
This palette is awesome. Beautiful colors that are creamy, blendable, and can create lots of different looks. Only one color I can't wear- Sidecar- worst fallout I've ever seen in my life. But hey, it's only 1 out of 12! I would say this palette is definitely worth it. Go for the Naked 2 if you're wanting more cool toned shadows, cause this palette is definitely warm toned. Only other problem I have is that I HAVE to wear these with a primer. But that doesn't bother me personally. I would definitely recommend and repurchase!
I LOVE this lipstick. Feels great on my lips, long wearing, amazing color!!, and of course has the best original mac vanilla smell/taste.
This is absolutely my go-to blush! I pop this on whenever I just want a little extra color to my cheeks, but it's also very buildable (I'm not a huge fan of wearing pinks). I have lots of freckles, so that along with my skin tone, this blush is just perfect. It's such a pretty warm color, and easy to blend.
Highlighters -Christian Dior - Shimmer Powder 002 Amber Diamond, Spring 08

This is a really nice product. It gives a beautiful sheen to wherever you're highlighting, and subtle warmth and glow if applying as a blush. The packaging so nice and sleek, and the product itself is beautiful just to look at in the pan. I would buy it again...but at the same time I feel like I could find another product out there that's cheaper and very similar to this. If you can afford it, awesome. But it's no HG product to save up for and get hyped about.
Beautiful milky pale pink. Formula sucks though. It takes me about 2-3 thick coats, the formula is a little irritating to work with. But I get complimented on the color all the time.
I wanted to love this nail polish so bad. The color is AMAZING! But I swear this polish has the absolute worst formula :( It takes at LEAST 3 coats to get it completely opaque, and it can be difficult to work with. And it really didn't last long on my nails. Chipped very easily.
Loose Powders -Laura Mercier - translucent loose powder

This powder is wonderful! I dust it on and it takes off all shine, and does not make my skin look all powdery. Blends well into the skin. Only thing I don't like about it is that it does make my skin look lighter...Doesn't seem 100% translucent. It can wash me out a little bit if I'm tanned.
All that glitters is such a pretty color. I use this eye shadow all the time, just pop it on with some mascara and I'm done!
This is one of my go-to highlight shades. It's also great on the lid. Great eye shadow!
I love this color! It's such a pretty pink lipgloss, and mac's cremesheen glosses are AMAZING. They do need to be reapplied throughout the day, so if that bothers you, maybe it's not for you. They're not long wearing.
