Polishes -New York Color - Quick Dry Nail Polish - East Village 206

This nail polish is not good quality. It is thin and requires about 3-4 coats. It also does not dry in a minute as promised. Not recommended!
I'm surprised by the bad reviews! I got one of these in grey, one in "Bold Gold". Both went on beautifully with no streaking, and they dried super quickly. Love!
This is my blush holy grail. I applied this with a kabuki brush and it goes on really nice and evenly. The color is absolutely beautiful, even on really pale girls like me.
Eyeliner -Wet 'n' Wild - Mega Liner Liquid Eyeliner

I CONSTANTLY get compliments on the teal colored eyeliner. This stuff is pure makeup gold, cheap and works like a charm. The teal and black colors are wonderful and cheap! I had some problems with the purple and royal blue color not being very consistent, so maybe shy away from those two though.
This looks terrible...I have uneven skin tones, and some redness and this just looks like crap on me. It is pasty, cakey, and oily looking. Some reviewers mentioned they used different tools and brushes to apply it-maybe it looks good that way, but you shouldn't need a bunch of fancy tools to apply foundation-it should look good as is. Very surprised by the rave reviews...if you can sample before buying.

Love these <3 If you are thinking of using them, I have some tips for you (I have used them a bunch): *Buff your nails with the buffer and file they give you *Before removing the clear plastic covering over the strip, warm the strip up by rubbing it in between your palms gently. This will make the strip more malleable so you can gently pull them vertically or horizontally to better fit your nail bed. *I have gotten strips that were somewhat dried out once or twice. If they are not sticking very well, exchange them for a new one. *The newer strips should have two sides, one is a little wider than the other, see which side best fits your nail before applying. *Other girls have said how easy they are to use. I personally think the french manicure can be a little tricky to apply, so take your time and use good lighting *These have good staying power (two weeks+) but be careful with them for a little bit after you're done, let them "dry". Maybe put a coat of clear polish over them. *After repeated use, they have made my nails flake a little. Maybe put clear polish under if you're worried about it. With practice, these are a great product, I can't wait until they have even more colors
I adore this foundation! It feels good on your skin, easy to blend, and has lots of shades. It makes your skin look flawless with no "cakey" quality! I hate when foundation makes your skin look dull, but this doesn't at all! The staying power is alright, you might need a touch up at some point in the day, but overall great product! <3
I am thinking maybe they improved the formula since they changed the packaging, because I can't believe it got so many good reviews on here. This is Rimmel lasting finish mineral enriched liquid foundation, right? It is very sticky and feels really gross on your skin. It doesn't blend well, and it doesn't cover well. It makes your skin shiny (not glowing, not dewy and refreshed just SHINY and sticky). I put a primer underneath it and it still sucks and made me break out. I used the Ivory 100 one, and it made my skin look dull, gray, and dirty. It does last but it looks streaky. Some others seem to like it, but I would suggest getting a sample before wasting your money on it.

Packaging and price aren't bad, but this razor sucks! The first time I used it I cut myself a few times. I thought maybe I was being a little hasty, so I tried again two days later and I cut myself several times AGAIN. I have been shaving my legs for well over a decade, so I know it's not me it is definitely the razor. No other razor has cut me like this one has. And the cuts burn horribly! I also get a ton of razor burn that doesn't go away for days. Avoid, especially if you have sensitive skin.
Lipstick -Wet 'n' Wild - Mega Last Matte Lipstick in 901B Think Pink

I have been looking for lipstick in this shade for a long time! I was a bit wary because I usually think Wet n Wild has cheap products, but this one seems pretty nice. Another girl mentioned the color is similar to Revlon's matte Pink Pout, and I would agree, except Wet n Wild's shade has no lavender/blue undertones. The color is high pigmented light bubblegum pink. Another poster said the color doesn't look good on pale skin. I think this color looks great on pale skin! Many lipsticks don't look right on me, so I'm glad I found one that does. The color is matte, which I like. Put a good chap stick on under this to prevent drying, then maybe sheer lip gloss over if you like your lips shiny.

*If you have minor flaws on your legs, this product will make them nearly flawless. *Spray into your palm, and QUICKLY rub over your legs (I use this product on my arms and chest and stomach too) It blends pretty well if you do it fast enough. *If you are wearing in daylight, be a little careful, and maybe apply the product by a window so you can see how it looks in the sun (it is a little messy) *When washing your hands after applying it, make sure to get in between your fingers. *Works better than I thought, this is the only self-tanner I use
