I was looking for a nice nude color but this color does not look good. It looks tan with some super tiny flecks of glitter in it. Formula is something I can handle, 2 coats did the trick. But the color is very unflattering & in certain lights really looks like crap. I've even had a family member tell me the same so will not be repurchasing.
This is a cute light pastel pink lip gloss. I usually just use this one on top of any pink lipstick I'm trying to tone down or when I'm going for a light dolly look. It is a little sheer & not thick or sticky. Love the sleek long tube.
I didn't think I'd like the eyeshadow that much because when I first got it & tested it on my finger, there was lots of color on the finger but transferred to my hand it barely showed up. So since I needed to show up a little bit, I used MAC Soft Ochre paint pot & put that as a base all over my lids & got a big fluffy eyeshadow brush & put Bamboo all over. So beautiful & natural! Alot of other eyeshadows are too orangey or they turn kinda darker brown but this was a nice color, not too dark or orangey & not that light where it looked like I had nothing on. I highly recommend using a base that is ivory matte like Soft Ochre because if I just put on a regular clear eyeshadow primer, it doesn't show up as pretty & is too sheer. I do have to layer it several times since it's kinda sheer so can see this running out faster than my other eyeshadows if I use it daily but worth it to me.

This is an awesome color. I was actually looking for a soft black color for those days that I don't want to put on jet black eyeliner because sometimes I don't want that precise & defined look. This color is like a soft blackish eggplant color, it's georgous!! It's not that shimmery so don't be scared. It is a bit sheer so you do have to put a little more on than the other solid colored eyeliners but it's the perfect eyeliner for those days that you want a soft eyeliner look & you don't have to be so precise drawing it like you do with the black ones. From afar though, it just looks like a very soft black to me though so I love it, no one is going to think you have mauve or eggplant colored eyeliner on.
Eyeliner -BeneFit Cosmetics - Magic Ink Liquid Eyeliner

This is a Jet Black liquid eyeliner in the typical liquid eyeliner container with cute silver foil designs on the handle. I do like how super black it is & stays put all day. I don't really have oily lids so most liquid eyeliners stay pretty well for me. The only thing I don't like is the brush. I'm an eyeliner snob since I use eyeliner so much. The brush is kinda fine but I thought the tip tapers off into a skinny point but instead the end is a little blunt so you have to twist the handle the other way to get a finer line. I like my liquid liners to get finer towards the tip so that's why I won't buy this again. Also you can find other liquid eyeliners just as good that are less than $20.
The color is a very soft sheer pink. Very natural, I had to layer it a couple of times to get some color. I think the color is actually very natural & pretty. I don't like the strong floral scent to it but it does go away. You get alot of product in the little box, so it'll probably last you a long time. I'm kind of big on smell & adding to that, how many times I have to layer the product, I probably won't buy it again.
I only bought this brush since I pretty much have all the other Smashbox brushes & I like to have the whole collection. This brush is stiff & very flat & wide which is not ideal for drawing a perfect line. I dip the brush into the gel liner & draw it across my lash line & since the brush is so big & flat, doesn't really curve to my eye. When you just use the corner instead to draw your line, it hurts! The bristles are so hard & not to mention, why would you just use the corner of the brush when you can get another nice eyeliner brush? I also hate how when I cleaned the brush, no matter how many times I cleaned it, the middle part kinda stained making it look a little grey since I use black eyeliners. I like my brushes to clean easy & look clean too. Don't waste your money on this brush.
Perfect peachy nude lip color. Not shimmery, frosty or sheer, just a nice veil of creamy peachy nude. Very moisturizing since it's a cremesheen & if I want it a little more pink, I just put some sheer pink lip gloss over it. Best if paired with a smoky eye look.
I didn't realize how much I liked this blush until I noticed that I reached for it quite often. It's a nice soft pink, just a little gives you a nice soft pink flush & it's buildable too. I'm NC25-30 for reference. I like how big the compact is, easy for me to use my big fluffy blush brush with. There's alot of blush too because I don't see any type of dip in the powder yet and it's been a long time. I will definitely buy again!
This smells sooooo good. It does smell a little strong dry but in the tub it smells like your in the blue ocean. My skin is super soft once I'm out of the bath. The seaweed just all goes down the drain & can be timely to clean up but I like the seaweed bits roaming around & occasionally rubbing it on my skin. I used the whole one but I think next time I'll cut it in half.
This is a great colorful eyeshadow palette. I certainly don't use most of the colors on a regular basis but it's great for when you want something colorful & don't want to spend alot of money on expensive eyeshadows. These are nicely pigmented & blend pretty easy. I like the big plastic case it's in, nice & smooth.

I am on the fence with this product. I do like how cool it looks with the 2 layers & I'm not actually looking for a moisturizing product, just something that makes me smell good when I spray it on after a shower or throughout the day. It does have this somewhat strange strawberry smell to it but it doesn't smell bad, just like an artificial strawberry. It is a little oily but I only spray it on my wrists and neck, away from my clothes. I don't think I'll buy it again because of the oilyness & also because it doesn't seem to last that long on me. But as of right now since I have it in my cabinet, I do use it somewhat frequently because it gives me that light scent that I like lately.
This stuff smells soooo good, not too heavily perfumed but not too lightly scented either. I put it on after my shower & my skin feels so soft. The container needs to be better because all the powder leaks from the side instead of the holes. Besides that, it seems like this will last you a very long time.
I bought this because I was on a mint craze for awhile. I didn't like the texture, how thin & watery it is. It takes about 3 coats to get it opaque. It did not bubble up on me which is good. It's a very bright pastel mint green color & I didn't think I'd like it that much but when I went out, a younger girl & an older lady at a store complimented me on my nail color!! It really is a pretty shade of mint green, just don't like the watery polishes so much.

I love this lipliner. I have so many different brands of pink lip liner but I always reach for this one. It stays put, is the perfect shade of pink & just glides on. My many complaints of other brands are that they are too dry & tug, color is too light or dark or don't stay put. Trust me, this is the perfect pink color.
