I love this eyeshadow duo! This was my first Estee Lauder purchase and I got it at the CCO for $17.50! I love the packaging because it feels so luxurious and the eyeshadows are very complimentary and can be used everyday. However, I took one lippie off because I feel that the pink could be more pigmented but I love it with the chocolate brown & the packaging won me over so I love this product!(:
This was the first drugstore foundation that I ever purchased and I loved it at first primarily because I didn't understand makeup and how it was supposed to look. I originally bought it in 320 Honey Beige (I was a MAC NC44 at the time) and the color match was wonderful but the foundation transferred like no tomorrow! It would get on my clothes & I couldn't touvh anyone! At first, I liked the finish but realized that the foundation hardly lasted for more than 6 hours and that was with a setting powder. I repurchased it in 315 Soft Honey because I was still confused with whether I liked it or not but I can now say that it sucks. The price is wonderful and it has an awesome color range but the foundation is subpar. I do however recommend the FIT Me powder. I have it in 310 Sun Beige & the powder works wonders(:

I hate this product! It broke me out and I hate the undercover shimmer in it! Maybe I didn't watch the commercials properly or read the bottle correctly but I had no idea that this had shimmer in it or else I wouldn't have bought it from the beginning. However, I purchased it in N6 like last november and I noticed that my skin was breaking out but I attributed it to stress because I'm a college freshman. Then, I stopped using it and my skin appeared fine. I gave it another try and sure enough it was breaking me out! I hate this foundation with a passion as it has too much glitter, the packaging sucks but it does have an excellent color range.
This is my holy grail high-end makeup lipstick! The MUA tried this on me with Enchantress lipgloss over top and it is my go-to nude lip. It compliments my tan skin tone and doesn't wash me out primarily because of its sheerness. I recommend this lipstick to the fullest!

I love this foundation! It truly is my holy grail foundation! My skin lightens up and darkens throughout the year as I tan easily so I originally bought this shade in True Beige. Then I got my 2nd bottle in Natural Tan and now I'm on my third bottle in Pure Beige. I think it's comparable to the MAC Prolongwear foundation because of its longevity and finish. I will admit that I've worn this foundation for 16 hours (#collgelifeproblems) and it didn't look like I just put makeup on, but it had barely worn off! I love the finish because it's not super matte but definitely not dewy which I love because I prefer a matte finish. I love that this is medium-full coverage and buidable because some days my slin is doing better than others so I can get medium coverage and other days I can get full coverage and my acne will still look non-existent! Most people will not have to use a concealer with this foundation because it gives great coverage. So here's a quick list of pros & cons (in my opinion of course) PROS: -long-lasting -medium-full coverage -blends easily -gives excellent finish between matte & dewy. -concealer will not be necessary if one does not have many acne scars -costs around $9 but can easily be bought on sale CONS: -transfers (sometimes it won't transfer on me & other times it's highly noticeable :( ) -packaging sucks -small color range ( only has about 12 shades & only three are Women of Color shades ; at least to me.) --> with the color range, many shades are very similar such as Classic Beige and Pure Beige. The only difference is Pure Beige appears to be pinker. Overall, I love this foundation because it does all of things my MAC Prolongwear does at a third of the price. The color range and packaging sucks but I love Maybelline and this foundation really makes my skin look flawless & I recommend everyone to at least try it! (:
