Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero

I have the mini version from my Alice in Wonderland palette. I always wanted to try this eyeliner out. It works pretty well for me and doesn't smudge as much as other eyeliners that i've tried. I love that it just glides on. I'm going to buy the full size liner soon.
I have the mini size of this mascara from the Best in Show Duo from Sephora. I got it for Christmas from a friend. I thought it was a good way to try out two mascaras. In it I got diorshow and diorshow blackout. They do work quite well together. It makes me look like i'm wearing false lashes when I layer both mascaras. I've tried diorshow alone also and it's alright. For the price though, I wouldn't buy it. The brush is ridiculously big and can sometimes cause a mess. I also don't like that it sometimes clumps my lashes so it takes even more time to comb it out and all that. Overall, i'm glad that I was able to try it out but I don't think i'd buy this unless I absolutely had the money to waste on a mascara.
I love this duo. I'm glad I got it. I was originally planning on only purchasing the blush itself, but my friend convinced me to get the duo. I bought this with a gift card from Christmas and it sure was worth it. I use the blush everyday and the bronzer every once in awhile. Good deal for a blush and bronzer since Nars can be quite pricey.
Eyeliner -L'Oreal - Lineur Intense liquid liner - brush tip

I like this eyeliner because it's really dark black. I bought this accidentally instead of the felt tip one. It turns out, I like this one better than the felt tip one. This eyeliner has a tendency to flake but that's only if you rub your eye a lot. The brush tip was difficult to use at first since I was used to a different brush applicator from other liquid liners. But now, the brush tip makes it easy to apply liner on my lids especially when i'm on the go. I'll keep buying this until I find another liner that doesn't flake as easily as this one.

I wanted this to work because of all the good reviews. Unfortunately, it doesn't work for me. It doesn't really stay on my eyelid. It rubs off very easily and flakes. I'm still looking for a good liquid liner since this just doesn't do it for me.

The coverage and staying power for this foundation is great. I got mine in a lighter shade but I mix it with my Revlon Colorstay foundation and it makes my face look flawless. It tends to feel a little heavy for me though but maybe that's just me. It's pretty good though and really does stay on even on a hot day.

I like this mascara for everyday use. Works pretty well for my lashes and holds the curl. I sometimes prefer it over high end mascaras like my Dior ones. It doesn't clump on me or anything which is a plus because I hate it when mascaras do that.

After reading many good reviews and watching Youtube videos with people recommending this lipstick, I had to get it. I love this lipstick. I don't usually wear lipstick but this is what I use if I do wear lipstick. I even got a backup of it because I love it so much. It's also quite moisturizing compared to other lipsticks out there. Pretty pretty pink color. My friend asked me what I had on my lips and I told her about this lipstick and got her into it also. Hahah.

I have this in Give Me Gold. I've always wanted a nice gold colored eyeshadow. That's what I found with this. Very pretty colors and I like shimmery eyeshadows, so it's a win win for me. I purchased it at Rite Aid because I couldn't find it at my local Target. They were having a little sale so I got it for a little cheaper than the normal price. I'm thinking about getting more because they finally have more at Target.

I wasn't expecting much from a drugstore brand due to past disappointments and experiences with drugstore eyeshadows. This is pretty pigmented and works well. I mostly use the lighter color for a highlight though because I like it better than the highlight colors in my Coastal Scents palette.
After going to the dermatologist, due to acne I changed my face routine. I bought this because it wasn't supposed to break you out and I needed a new cleanser. I like to change my routine sometimes and try out other cleansers but I always come back to this. It doesn't irritate my skin or make me break out so i'm sticking with this. My skin feels refreshed after using this. It can be a bit pricey so I recommend getting it if it's on sale or getting at a wholesale place such as Costco.
My skin was very dry due to using a new acne cream. It dried out my skin so I went to look for something that would moisturize my face because other moisturizers didn't seem to work for me at all. This works pretty well for me. It can be a little thick but it really does moisturize my face. A little goes a long way, so even if i've been using it daily for months, the container is still pretty full. It also seems to work with my foundation making it look dewy. Since it didn't make me break out, i'm continuing to use it. It helped me get through winter when my skin gets really dry due to wind and such weather conditions. I mostly use this at night though because it feels heavy and it's getting warmer now.
I tried this before to set my makeup. It makes you feel refreshed but I felt like I was just spraying water on my face so what was the point in paying for it? I would recommend this for a hot summer day though because it cools you down. I'd only buy this again for the summer.
I wanted this to work for me, but it just doesn't cut it. I feel like the coverage isn't that great and the sparkles can make imperfections stand out more than usual. Also, while under the sun or standing closely to someone, the sparkles become very noticeable. I put this under colorstay or mix it with it. The pump is great. I wish they would do that for colorstay. For now, i'm sticking to using colorstay.
A friend of mine let me try a sample of this. I asked for more when I ran out so I knew I had to buy this. It's pretty creamy and works well at concealing redness, acne scars and such. I never put it under my eyes though because it gets very cakey and settles into your fine lines. Sometimes, this concealer can get cakey but other than that, it works pretty well and does the job.
