I feel like i am going to be a downer here but i really dislike this eyeshadow. I did my first big MAC haul and bought this with 11 other eyeshadows. I decided to get a purple and between parfait amour and this i got beautiful iris. It is a gorgeous purple. But the reason i dont like this is because it has crappy color pay off. It is very unpigmented. and when i pay 13$ for an eyeshadow (pro pan) I want something that you can actually see on my eye lid. I find this very diffcult to work with and i find it futile to even bother using. I also swatched Parfait Amour because my friend bought it and it wasnt any better! I don't understand MAC's veluxe pearl purples! I have also purchased Stars'n'Rockets and i have had problems with its pigmentation as well! Although I find stars n rockets a bit easier to work with. I will be swapping beautiful iris.

I love this because.. IT WORKS! haha now im not afraid to wear eyeshadows and i dont have to worry bout it creasing and you dont need to use hardly any! just have to keep my eyes closed until it drys or else the product creases, love this product! deffinatly will buy again!!
I bought this thinking it would be a cool new way to put mascara on with the cool brush, but all it does is clump and it takes forever to get all my lashes! It gives me nasty spider lashes and I just cant stnad using it. Me and my friend both agree it was not worth the money and I stopped using it only after about a month until I found something better, it is permanatly in the bottom of my makeup kit never to be used again. So I will never ever buy this product again. Just look at the picture and it will show you just how clumpy the brush is, never mind putting it on your lashes!!

I FREAKING LOVE THIS SCENT!!!
I hate that I have a very sensitive scalp meaning I cannot use any other hair shampoo or condition product other than head and shoulders :( and the head and shoulders did nothing for me. I picked this up at a grocery store for 1$!!! I love the strawberry scent and I also have the coconut one which i personally prefer but they are both great. and get this, It does NOT irritate my scalp!!! So happy! I dont notice so much the conditioning it does for my hair but I love it and use it every night =) Would for sure buy it again especially for the price!

I bought this product today and it is awesome! I love the formula because it isnt sticky like alot of others. It was well worth my 8$ I am surprised that I actually got such a brownish color seeing as I usually got for pinks but this one looks great on top of a lipstick and by itself, I wish I had every color now! :)
Cleansers -Neutrogena - Oil-Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleanser

I bought this cleanser when I ran out of my Clean and Clear shine burst cleanser. I also stopped using my AMAZING Clearasil overnight serum because I couldnt find it at the store. When i started using it I liked it the first few washes but now i am just using it because I have to. I hate how long it takes to get off my face and it stays on the facecloth that I use so I have to use a seperate one every time. It smells good which is a plus but that the only plus. Immediatly after using it I saw that I didn't "break out" but I did have quite a few little zits all over my face which definatly does not look good. Especially since I almost never have any zits. I also find it dries out my face and makes it feel tight. I am going to go out and buy a better facial cleanser and get my overnight serum which works waaay better. I was really dissapointed in this product :(
I love this lipgloss because it is moisterizing, not too sticky, and the color lasts! Even after the gloss is gone, it very pigmented and when I tried it on in the store, i loved it. Such a cool idea! I got the dark pnk and it really does vary in color which is pretty cool :) I did dislike the price tho! 35$ canadian for a lipgloss :/ really?? I probably wont buy it again with my own money but if I ever got a gift card I would probably get more. The tube and box is really cute too! but it does take talent to not get too much product on the nozzle, i know i've done that before. And is it just me or is there not alot in the tube? Thats what I thought seeing as I havent used it a whole lot and im nearly out :( But i personally love this lipgloss but my parents think it looks like it is "too much" for every day wear when i first put it on/ it goes too dark which makes sence. I really like the color when the gloss fades though, it looks really nice! Love it!
Pressed Powders -Maybelline - Dream Matte Pressed Powder

This product is generally OK but I cannot wear this as a "foundation" because It makes me look like a cakeface- seriously. I really dislike the spounge thing it comes with, i reccomend that if u buy this product, throw the spounge out! it is the worst for applying it, your better off using a kaboki or just a big fluffy brush. The product it self is, very matte and shine reducing for oily skin but to put enough on so that it covers any redness, you've already to put on too much. It also doesnt have much staying power as well. I use just a bit of it over my fondation to cover anything not covered inicially by the foudation. I love the compact but i think the twist out mirror and spounge is a bit unnessicary but you can't blame them for trying. I am afraid to use this product as it is very cakey and I do not need the heavy coverage on my skin and I also broke out if i used this product every day, so I wont buy this again. I will probably finish what is left and invest in a better product.
