This eyeliner is great! I bought it in black as my first eyeliner and I still have it after three years, so it has indeed lasted me a very long time. Out of all the pencil eyeliners out there, I think this one is the best because it is more rich and creamy than some other brands. Normally before I apply, I gently dip this in a lotion so that it can be drawn easier on my eyes. Doing this really helps the color come out easily and vibrantly. The color does kind of fade though, unlike liquid eyeliners, but that's to be expected with pencil eyeliners and in a way I love how it gives my eyes the illusion of the smokey eye when it's a bit faded. I have another white one for my waterline and it works just as well. It does come off the waterline throughout the course of the day but I just reapply it when necessary so it's no big deal.
Lipstick -L'Oreal - Colour Riche Lipstick in British Red

I love bright red and this lipstick definitely delivers! The color isn't very natural though, but if you want it to look more natural, just apply small dabs and smear it with your fingers. Keep in mind that this lipstick does clump, but not as badly as some other brands. A plus about this line of lipsticks is that it is very moisturizing. A good way to prevent drying would be to apply chapstick over your lips every now and then. Applying too many layers may result in a more clumped up effect later on, so I just apply one layer at most. The color is so vibrant it doesn't need to be reapplied that frequently in my opinion. I would buy this again just because it's hard to find such a nice, true red color.
Lipstick -Unlisted Brand - Fran Wilson - Mood Matcher 12 hr Lip Color

I bought this in red. The color does in fact stay on for a long time, and the bonus is that it doesn't clump up or dry at all like other lipsticks! It goes on like a stain and is very smooth. I usually apply some chapstick over it just in case though. The color is very vibrant so I just apply a few dabs for a more natural look. People always compliment me on how lovely my lips are when I wear this, and they ask if it's my natural lip color so I take that it can look very natural. Only thing I don't like is the packaging of the lipstick, as it comes in a really cheap package and one must be careful when replacing the lid in case they damage the lipstick. The price is reasonable though and I'd definitely buy this again because I love how it doesn't clump.
Lipstick -Boots - No7 Wild Volume in "Forever Cherry"

Okay I just have to say that I LOVE this lipstick! I've tried other brands such as L'oreal, Revlon, and Covergirl - but I feel this brand is by far the best. Not only does the color make my lips stand out, but it feels very moisturized and smooth with less clumping than other brands as well. I apply this lipstick almost daily and I feel like one or two dabs does the trick because it gives my lips a very natural pinkish red color. I then apply chapstick over it. As far as the plumping goes, I do feel a slight tingle when I have it on. My lips are pretty full to begin with so I don't know if it really plumps my lips or if the color just makes them stand out more, but it definitely looks nice and I recommend it to anyone and everyone!
Lip Treatments -eos - Lip Balm Sphere - Lemon Drop SPF 15

Honestly what first attracted me to this lip balm was its cute packaging. I thought the sphere shape was simply adorable! The price is fairly reasonable, and it is very easy to apply - not to mention it smells fantastic. I love lemon in general, so this lip balm was like the epitome of lemony goodness for me. It is also helpful that it contains SPF and I usually wear it under lipstick. The texture isn't too wet or too dry, and it really helps my chapped lips become nice and smooth!
