So my mom got this for me after seeing the horribleness my Revlon eyelash curler did to my eye lol. Anyways, I'm 13 and I have no idea how much it cost, but mines in gold not silver. It fits my Asian eye perfectly and curls my lashes. Best eyelash curler ever for Asian eyes! (:
1. Packaging: The words on the front rub off very easily as usual. It is sturdy though, and small. I don't like the triangular shadow pans. 2. Quality: They are SUPER glittery and pigmented, and every time you lightly brush your eyeshadow brush into it, there's lots of highly pigmented fluffies flying around. The colors are nice, but they clash sometimes with the ones in the quad. Like Butternut, the first color is a yellow toned highlighting color but the second is awfully yellow toned gold. Then it jumps into a dark brown and a REALLY dark brown. How are we supposed to blend the light gold into the dark brown...?! Note: You need mad blending skills for this. 3. Price: At only 1$ for an eyeshadow quad, that's about 25 cents a color. It's not that expensive, so I would buy more, in different colors. The colors don't really match though, so I would probably buy a bunch of them and mix them up. Overall, it's an okay product. The price matches the product well.
Great pigmented colors, super cheap. Colors are very glittery and blend easily together. Only thing I don't like is the packaging. Broke my nail opening it..
ELF eyeshadows are always super cheap and very pigmented. I have the 32 piece eyeshadow palette in the shade "Warm" which is a bunch of neutrals. You could probably find every single Urban Decay's Naked palette colors in here and a lot more, for a fraction of the price. Some are matte, some are shimmery. I think it should have more highlighting colors though. It is very cheap, and the packaging is black and bulky as usual. One of the eyeshadow pans fell out and broke during the airplane ride though. Oh, and this is great of travel. This is super cheap and a great buy so you should try it!
I just read a couple of reviews on here and I don't get why everyone hates this mascara so much. This was the first mascara I have ever purchased and I love it. I have short stubby Asian eyelashes, but I did the overnight vaseline trick which kinda worked, because one of my friends at school asked me if my eyelashes were growing.. Anyways, the big fat brush does get all of my lashes. I have tried Maybelline's Lash Discovery mascara before, but the brush was insanely small for me. When I used that mascara, it made my lashes feel insanely long and awkward for the tiny brush. I have a review on it too, but BACK TO THE REVIEW lol. So the packaging is really cute,I love pink and green. They have as lot of different brushes but I've only tried 1, the big fat one. I think that brush is the best, anyways. The price was around 6-7 dollars, plus walgreens always has sales on it. I think that this mascara almost NEVER clumps. I do a layer, let it dry, then do another and my lashes look great. It doesn't really curl, but it's okay.It does smudge, at least a little, but I think thats because of my Asian eyes/lashes. Overall this is a really great product and it's not that expensive, so you should try it!
So I have these in every single color since it was only a dollar each, so why not right? They packaging is very simple and cute, it looks like a giant stubby chapstick. Colors are super pigmented. Pink Lemonade is probably my favorite though. Can use for pretty blush and lips, and if you put it on your finger and blend very carefully, it will be a good eyeshadow. Has pretty shimmers in it. Doesn't make me break out. Toasted and golden peach are really good for eyes and highlighting bronzers since they have shimmer in them. Golden peach might work as a lip color, but not for me. Spotlight is a very pretty highlighting color for the brow bone. It's a nice bright shimmery white that blends easily. The packaging is especially good for highlighting. Lilac Petal and Persimmon are both kinda purpley pink, and metallic. They make good eyeshadows too if you use them right, like as the medium or darkest color for the vertical or horizontal gradient. Persimmon is a good base color for eyeshadow if you're doing pink and purple on top. Overall, they are really great products and super cheap!
Primer/ Corrector -L'Oreal - Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base

My mom got this product then gave it to me. She doesn't really wear eyeshadow and I do, but I usually just do a very subtle neutral eye anywaysII'm 13). I can't really tell that big of a difference since my eyeshadows don't crease, nor do I have oily eyelids. But I think it was arouund 12$ or so, so I wouldn't really buy it with my old money. Of course, I still have my Urban Decay Primer Potion that I got for my birthday lolololl. I don't use it everyday, but i really can't tell the difference when I use this!
It smells amazing, ohmygod. I wonder if they make a perfume out of it? Anyways, I've used the invisible solid deodorant in coco butter kiss for like 3 years and it is amazing. It smells super good and lasts a long time. The packaging is cute and it's a lot more 'fun' than the Lady Speed Sticks. I think I'm going to get the vava vanilla one too, since I love vanilla. But this is a really great deodorant that does the job and smells great!
Well I still haven't found my holy grail pressed powder to control my fair-medium combo oily skin! Anyways, I have this powder in the shade 545 warm beige, but it's in a blue packaging instead of the one in the picture. It's okay I guess, You just had to keep applying it but be really careful not to put too much because it does cake easily. It's not the best powder ever, but it's okay.
Blush -E.L.F. - Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder
pinkcupcakee 7/3/2012 5:32:00 AM
SWEET BABY JESUS I'VE FOUND MY FIRST HOLY GRAIL PRODUCT =D This is a dupe of some NARS blush/bronzer duo thing, but considering the fact I'm only 13, I probably couldn't buy a 40$ blush/bronzer. Anyways, the colors are GORGEOUS and SUPER PIGMENTED but EASY TO BLEND. Packaging is sturdy and bulky. The colors omg are so pretty. The blush is a warm corally pink with golden sparkles in it and actually shows up really well unlike the elf tickled pink blush i got. The bronzer was my first bronzer actually, because i've never used a bronzer. It wasn't orange at all, it was a golden brown and it blended and looked perfect with my fair-medium Asian skin. There are golden sparkles in the bronzer, too. This is just the most perfect thing ever, plus it was only 3$! Everyone seriously needs to get this, it's super cheap and a great product! =D
1. Packaging: The typical e.l.f. packaging. Black, bulky. Has a small mirror on the inside. Gets scratched easily. 2. Quality: I had such a hard time choosing one online. I chose tickled pink. It is a pretty perfect pink with some sparkles in it. Well, the color barely shows at all but then again, it was only 3$. The color, when you swipe it on your finger is a more pearly cool toned pink than warm sparkly pink. It doesn't show on the face, at all...hahaha. Well, poop. 3. Price: The quality sucked, maybe it was because I got a crappy one, or the color wasn't that good. At only 3$, I think I'll try other colors from the elf studio blush line. Overall, I couldn't tell what the true color was because it didn't show up on my face AT ALL. I dug into the stuff, scooping it up like there was no tomorrow. But nope. poop. It was only 3 dollars though...so...I'M GONNA BUY MORE. :)
Liquid -Cover Girl - Natureluxe Liquid Silk foundation in 310 Flax
pinkcupcakee 7/3/2012 5:22:00 AM
1. Packaging: No pump, but not in a bottle either. Tube is okay :/ Hard to squeeze out the exact amount you want when your bottle is half empty. 2. Quality: I just hate the smell. Its like sunscreen but it only has SPF 10 in it. It blends well, I have it in 315 bamboo, and I have fair medium Asian skin. It is a bit too light for me, but its doable. I bought it before I took the test on CG.com, and my matched color is 325, which is 1 shade darker. Not that big of a difference though. Spreads evenly. I usually apply it with my fingers/hands, and i apply it like a moisturizer. The product dries really fast on your skin which is kinda good and kinda bad. Very lightweight feel, feels like your not wearing anything on your face. Dries out my skin a tiny bit and I have combo oily skin. Still have to use powder though. I think that the numbers that end in 0 are cool toned and pinkish. Numbers than end in 5 (I got 315) are yellow and warmer toned. 3. Price: I think it was around 10$ which is pretty pricey for a drugstore foundation, but it's still okay. The product isn't fully up to the price though. I think it's worth 6$ or 7$ xD Overall, it does feel light but it doesn't really give you a coverage, which I know is the point. But i think it's better just to save your 10$ and not wear anything at all.
1. Packaging: Personally, I think that making a foundation in anything other than a pump bottle should be illegal. NO PUMP ARRGHHFFF. 2. Quality: Doesn't smell like sunscreen (wohoo) medium-full coverage, lots of colors to choose from. The consistency is a little watery or runny than i like it to be. It's pretty good and it covers very nicely. I have combo oily skin so I got the combination/oily kind. They also have another kind thats for normal/dry skin, which is nice. I have fair/medium asian skin and i tan a lot during the summer, so I got it in 340 Early Tan which is a tad too dark for me but still doable. It feels lightweight but not like your not wearing makeup at all. It does not last for 16 hours like it says on the bottle though. 3. Price: At around 10$ a bottle for a drugstore product, it is a little bit pricey. It's not too bad though becaues the product is pretty good. Overall, it is a really good foundation because it has so many colors and shades, plus the normal/dry and the combo/oily types. I still do have to use powder though, I have yet to find a foundation that doesnt need a powder to blot my oily skin. Medium full coverage, smells okay, and blendable. Minus 2 lippies for crappy packaging.. WHY NO PUMPPP :( D':
1. Packaging: It comes in a cute 50ml bottle with a nice pump, but be sure to wipe the pump really good before putting the cap on. Sometimes excess products smudges onto the plastic cap. 2. Quality: Its super lightweight, and it doesn't even feel like your wearing makeup at all. Which, you barely are. It kinda sinks into the skin and dissapears after 1 hour, and I have combo oily skin. There are grey undertones some reason but it fades too, after 10 minutes. Sets well with powder. The color range is really small though, there's only 5 shades. I got it in #21 which is a bit light for me. I have fairish medium asian skin, but you know how in Asia the thing is to be super white/pale? Like a good milky white fair colored skin means your high class. So anyways, I tried 21 and 23 on my hand and I thought 23 would be perfect with my skintone but for some reason I got #21-light beige. It looks okay since it's not super full coverage. Some people are stuck in between 2 shades like me, so they buy both colors and mix them. I don't have the patience to do that lol, or the money haha. It has 42 SPF which is really good. It kinda smells like sunscreen though. It is very moisturizing and doesn't flake off like some foundations do on the dryer areas of my skin ( between eyebrows, cheeks) It does brighten up the complexion after the greyness fades. 3. Price: I got mine at the Korean airport for only 11 U.S. dollars, plus its a full size. I think the usual price is around 30 dollars. Not too bad.. PROS: light, sheer, brightening, healing skin, good for all types, good packaging, price is good if you find it on sale/in korea, can be worn alone if you have dry/normal skin, good for travel CONS: grey undertones, expensive at full price, have to use powder/blot for oily skin, smells like old lady sunscreen, small range of colors. Overall, it's a really good product if you're young (I'm 13) and looking for a light coverage or starting out with makeup (I started in January mwahah. ) You still have to blot your face or use powder if you have oily skin like me, though. I would purchase it again!(:
OHMYGOSHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. BEST BRUSH EVER OGMOMGOMGOMG. The bristles are so amazingly soft and it only costs 3$!!!!!!!!! I think the bristles feel exactly the same as Shiseido's award winning foundation brush, which costs 30$ and is super small. THIS BRUSH IS SO AMAZING OMG EVERYONE SHOULD GET IT! Just dab it in the pressed powder and brush it on in circles. Sometimes I don't even need to tap it to get out the excess powder because the bristles grab the perfect ammount of product! LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE OMGOMGOMGOMG. :)
