Pretty bad product. Stings my eyes like crazy. It removes eyeshadow ok, but doesn't even make a dent in eyeliner or mascara. I received this as a sample, definitely won't buy the full size.
I received a small sample of this perfume & I like this scent a lot, I normally like sweet smells but this is more mature & I like to wear it for work. However the lasting power is just not there... I find it's faded after only 3-4 hours. Based on that I don't think I would purchase the full-sized bottle.
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Wild Cherry body butter

One of my favourite body butters from the Body Shop. The scent is nice & sweet but not overpowering. I like this especially because the scent lasts several hours after applying - some other scents fade very quickly. Also makes my skin feel soft & smooth.
Smells nice & feels nice going on it the shower. However the greasy film it left behind on my skin is noooot worth it! I think my skin feels soft underneath the grease but it's hard to tell. I rinsed off in the shower for almost 10mins & still feel greasy. Not to mention after getting out of the shower little pieces of lint, hair etc are all sticking to my skin. Definitely will not repurchase!
This isn't a bad product, but it doesn't work all the time for me... I have oily lids & this does not work at all for applying eyeshadow on top of. It creases & smears very easily. My top choice for primer is Too Faced Shadow Insurance. However I do use the Stila primer on days when I don't wear eyeshadow. The colour is a nice match to brighten up & even out tone on my eyelids. It still creases a bit after a few hours so not a perfect product but easy enough to re-apply. I don't think I will repurchase.
Received this in one of my Topboxes... I've heard a lot about it so was excited to try it. Unfortunately it's just way too clumpy & also really hard to remove. Just not worth the trouble for me.
Received a small sample of this mascara... I like how it looks, doesn't clump, doesn't smudge or anything. However I have to remove a point because I have so much trouble removing it! I have 2 different eye makeup removers & neither are able to fully remove this mascara. It's a little too clingy!
Received this in my November Topbox. Loooove the colour, a dark pretty teal. Comparing it to the rest of my nail polish collection, I think it's closest to Dior's Nirvana, but it's definitely darker. Generally I'm a fan of China Glaze polishes & this is no exception, applies & wears nicely.
I also received a nice sized sample from Sephora. I've been using it about 2 weeks now, before my moisturizer in the morning. I like the smell a lot & it helps me to wake up in the morning! It absorbs nicely & doesn't leave any sort of shine which is important since I sometimes have oily skin. The only issue is I don't notice any difference in my skin at all. No change in tone or texture or anything like that... I might as well not be applying anything to my face. For a free sample I can't complain, but I definitely wouldn't purchase the full-price product.

I received a small sample of this set that includes the bar soap, toner & moisturizer. I used to suffer from a moderate amount of acne but it has mostly cleared up in the past year or so except during that time of the month. I decided to give these products a try during that time as I had a breakout around my chin & mouth. I'm not sure specifically which product is to blame, but I only used it for 3-4 days & my skin was so dry, tight & flaky... I didn't notice any difference in the blemishes at all. It's possible that long-term it might be a solution for breakouts, but for me I can't imagine continuing to use it given how terrible my skin feels. Would rather have a few blemishes than have my whole face feel this dry!
Switched to this from the Anastasia brow gel to save some money. Very happy I did! I found the Anastasia sometimes would be a bit crunchy & flaky but don't experience that at all with Maybelline. Very good value & will definitely repurchase.
I really like the Smashbox bb cream but due to price I was looking for a cheaper alternative. I picked this one up on sale for $13.99 which is a good deal for a good amount of product. The cream looks yellow-tinged but my skin is pink-toned & it still matches well. It's very light coverage but enough to even out the skintone & feels nice as well. No miracle product but the price I'm quite happy!
This product works very well for me. I have suffered from bad skin in the past but it has been improving a lot in the past year so I don't need full foundation anymore. Plus, I go to the gym during my lunch break & I don't want the hassle of wiping off pounds of makeup & reapplying it again after working out. I received a sample of this BB cream & it gives just enough coverage to even out my skin tone, cover any redness (great after the gym) & it seems to absorb a bit of oil as well! I top it with a light dusting of powder & I'm good to go. The price seems high however you only need a small amount so it last a long time - I had a small sample tube of 0.25 oz & it has lasted me a couple months.
I picked this up for $6 recently on a trip to Vegas - couldn't resist this cute souvenir. I generally love Tokidoki items but these eyeshadows fall short. They're just not very pigmented. The blush is nice which saves the palette a bit.
Got this as a sample at Sephora. Love the scent! I was surprised to see it rated so low on here. I would definitely purchase a full size bottle. Only knocked off one lippie because it doesn't last a super long time.
