Eyeliner -Physicians Formula - Eye booster eyeliner + serum

So, I love this eyeliner. I got Ultra Black and let me tell you something, it is pigmented. One swipe of this and my eyeliner was perfect. And, better yet, it lasted all day with no smudging! This is practically a miracle for me, considering I tend to rub my eyes. I was wearing this almost eyeliner every day. Then one day, I left the cap loose. It didn't work after that - it was like there was no eyeliner left in it. I tried writing with it on my hand, running hot water over it, everything. But no eyeliner would come out. I think that it's because of the odd built-in brush it has, maybe the eyeliner dried up in the bristles and are blocking anything from coming out. I don't know. Because I love it so much, I will be buying it again and trying to not let it dry out this time.
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - Color Icon Trio - Walking on Eggshells

I love this! It's super cheap, the colours are super pigmented, and they wear all day without much fallout. I use this palette as my go-to look most of the time, and as long as I use primer, the eyeshadows stay put until I take them off. One thing that I wouldn't rave about is the packaging. I have stubby nails and sometimes it's very hard to open and I have to use a nail file or the end of a brush. I think the actual product makes up for it, though.
Lip Treatments -Burt's Bees - Nourishing Lip Balm with Mango Butter

Okay, so I am not a fan at all of the original Burt's Bee's. It sits weird, I don't like the smell and it's drying. But THIS is like magic in a tube. It smells amazing and is so moisturizing. I use it every day and will continue to use it until I die. It makes my lips smooth and kissable. The one thing that annoys me is that sometimes the actual chapstick part won't roll back down and I have to push it down, which is a little yucky but a sacrifice I will make for this.
Eyeliner -Maybelline - Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner

I got this eyeliner in Black. It was nice and pigmented, but when I used it on both my lash lines, it migrated. It got all around my eyes and into my eye. It caked under my contacts and irritated my eyes. On the bright side, I like the brush that came with it. But still, I returned it.
This product was nice, but I found it a bit oily and heavy feeling, no matter how I applied it. That would have been fine with some powder if the shade hadn't been wrong. I got 115, and it was way too dark and orange, but it was the lightest shade that I could find at any of my local stores. Some of the stores I went to only had 120 and up, and I couldn't find 110 anywhere. So, I don't know. I might have liked this more if it weren't so impossible to find the right color.
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - 8-pan Palette "Comfort Zone"

These shadows are all pigmented and easy to use. I'm totally obsessed with the left side of the palette, and the greens are so pretty too. The "defining" shade on the right is definitely my favorite shadow of the palette. It's a duochrome green/copper color and perfect to wear on its own. The only problem with this palette is that it was rather hard to find. It wasn't at any of my local drugstores, I only found it by chance at Wal-Mart. Overall, I love this!
Very pretty colour. It's very, very pigmented, so I have to be super careful not to overdo it, because it's easy to do. Just a tiny bit on each cheek and lots of blending, and I have a very healthy glow. This product is great!
Liquid -Wet 'n' Wild - Intuitive Blend Shade-Adjusting Foundation + Primer

This product stung and burnt on my face and broke me out. When I applied it, it dried way too quickly, and ended up looking cakey and gross. I returned this barely two days after I bought it.
