This mascara gives me a lot of volume but unfortunately no length at all. I will be using the rest but it just didn't do it for me..
This color is so pretty! It is a darker magenta/bluetoned/pink color. lol It reminds me of blues' clues friend Magenta (the dog) sort of ! I have a warm/yellow undertones in my skin so I thought this color would look extremely odd on me but since I am tan now it looks absolutely gorgeous! I'm going to be rocking this color a lot this summer. :D
So the packaging is what originally attracted me to this product. It's pink. Come on. Let's be real. So I was wearing my regular face makeup.. which is a full face.. foundation..mascara..eyeshadow..blush you know the drill and I kid you not.. I had 2 cotton balls, Put a bit of this remover on them and it took off EVERYTHING. Not just my eye makeup.. but my foundation too. It does leave a slightly slippery-greasy residue so I went and cleansed my face with my clarisonic and facewash and I was done. This cut my facial cleansing routine in half and I am eternally greatful (: thank you maybelline!!

I recently ran out of my Revlon Colorstay foundation and since they've changed the formula (16 hr to 24 hr) it is absolutley horrible but ANYWAYS I am in the shade Nude in revlon colorstay so i purchased the color classic ivory in the cover girl foundation (since the revlon was a tad too dark) PROS: -Pump bottle -Dries quickly but not TOO quickly.. have time to work with it -Dries MATTE which is amazing -perfect for oily/combo skin! -blends like a dream -amazing coverage.. very comparable to revlon colorstay CON: -Oxidizes like no other. seriously went like.. two or three shades darker! Other than the oxidization..it was perfect. Since I am in the process of tanning though, My skin will soon match perfectly so i'm alright with it for now!

Uh.. $2 and stays all day. How can you go wrong? I bought this in Black and it's extremely black. I love it, If you are a beginner the applicator brush may be alittle hard but if you do small strokes you'll be fine. ONLY thing i dislike is when I try taking it off it smears everywhere but that's not a huge issue.
Really revlon..really? Don't fix what isn't broken! The old 16hr revlon foundation for oily/combo skin was my HG, I loved everything about it. This new formula.. Just no... It takes forever to dry, goes on streaky EVEN with finger application and is not as full coverage as the old formula. I'm really really disappointed with this.. I'll continue to use until I find my new HG.
I got this as a sample from Ulta when I ordered from there. I tried it out today and I'm so glad I tried this as a sample instead of buying it. I have somewhat oily skin, My revlon colorstay oily/combo skin foundation with alittle translucent powder can keep my oil away all day and this BB cream definatley did not. CONS: Seemed like it never actually set/dried Looks cakey with powder Need a concealer if you have blemishes/acne scaring/hyperpigmentation Did not control oil well at all (even with Rimmel Stay Matte powder) PROS: Easy to blend Smells like sunscreen (i personally love that smell)
I heard rave reviews about this product on Youtube, MUA, ect and figured why not? So i went to walgreens and picked this up for $7.99. I was so disappointed.. I thought this would be a softer formula and more pigmented but sadly it wasnt. My lips are naturally a deep mauvey/red color and this color didn't show up much. I do like that it is moisturizing other than that, I'm sad this product didn't work out for me :( I may try other colors.

So, Tonight I went to Walgreens after work just to go pick up a few makeup/face items and I came across this mask, I heard a Youtuber rave about a certain mask from the line and decided i'd give this one a try since it was on sale for $3 and some cents. When I got home I figured i'd give it a go right away, I wiped my face with my makeup removing wipes, washed my face with my acnefree cleanser then put a layer of this product on my face. I let it get completley dry, till I could no longer make a facial expression :P lol I then gently wiped it off my face with warm water and a wash cloth and then once it was all off i dabbed cold water on my face with the same cloth. My face is SO soft now! my pores are visibly smaller, its crazy! I love this. I think I may go back next week to get the peel off mask also. ONLY issue is that it made my right eye tear up a bit. Nothing major though, still love this. For reference, I have oily skin (mainly tzone area)

So, I recently made an attempt to go blonde and lets just say it wasn't too pretty! So, I decided to go dark brown. (this all happened in a 2 day span) my hair didnt FEEL damaged but obviously if you put chemicals in your hair, it will be. So, I saw this in the store and i used it the morning after i dyed my hair dark brown. This is amazing stuff! It left my hair tangle-free therefore, less breakage and it may be all in my head but i feel like I didn't have much fallout after using this. I love this stuff!
This is absolutley terrible. My mom bought it for herself, ended up not liking it so i tried it.. SO GLITTERY! I don't even understand why anyone would make or use a glittery bronzer. Horrid.
These lashes are freakin' amazing! I have the Ardell Fashion lashes in 110 black and they are SO natural! "your lashes but better" kind of look. I don't have much issue with volumizing my lashes, just lengthening thats the issue so these accomplish that flawlessly. Will definatley repurchase!
I'm new to bronzer, I decided to pick this up at Wal Mart today because i've heard good things on youtube from beauty gurus. The packaging is average, standard compact with a mirror, nothing too extrodinary. I don't see why everyone is saying its hard to pick up product, i didn't seem to have that problem at all. I used my eco-tools blush brush to apply, It seemed a bit orange for my nc25 skin but not anything to horrible since this does come onto the skin fairly lightly, its buildable though so thats a plus. I'm sure there are much better bronzers out there but for $3 i didn't see how I could really go wrong there. Not too bad!
I got this palette today in the mail from Sephora and as soon as I looked at the colors I fell in love with it. The only problem is that I have hooded eyes that are deep blue with hazel and I've looked up makeup looks on youtube already today and tried a few out and they all just look weird with my eyes. So, I will have to play around with this palette a bit but so far, love it.
I got this in the mail today in sample size (sephora) and this mascara in my opinion, is pretty comparable to my Maybelline Falsies Volum Express mascara. It seperates decently..gives some length & volume but it really isn't as fantastic as i thought it was going to be! Save your money on this one guys!
