Eyeliner -L'Oreal - Infallible Gel Lacquer Liner in Blackest Black

Like the reviewer below me said, FINALLY a drugstore brand got the "gel" liner concept RIGHT! This is my new HG eyeliner. The look and feel is identical to MAC's Fluidline gel liner. These are $10 each, with 0.08oz of product. However, you can usually find them at Ulta or CVS for BOGO 1/2 off which makes it a STEAL. MAC's Fluidline is 0.10oz and $15 each. So, if you found L'oreal's on sale for BOGO 1/2 off, you could get 2 for the price of 1 (from MAC.) LOVE.

Me: Bleached, THIN hair, chest length. This is THE only detangler and conditioner that I will ever use until they stop making it (knock on wood.) Why? It absolutely does not weigh down my hair or make it greasy. It does quite the opposite. This stuff leaves my hair shiny, silky, non-greasy, and detangles like nothing has detangled it before. Holy. Grail. Alert! I use this in conjunction with Organix nourishing coconut milk anti-breakage serum. Another amazing product. But! that's another review for a different day. :)
I'm surprised this wasn't in the database before now. This stuff is amazing! I still have to use some concealer for a few acne marks, but it does clear all redness and projects nice, even and brighter skin.
To be completely honest, I didn't even notice the burning sensation until I read some of the reviews on this site. Yes, it does burn once you put it on, but only for about 5 to 10 seconds. It stays put, flawless, and it's the blackest black eyeliner I've used and been completely happy with. Definitely a keeper, definitely a Holy Grail.
Ohhh how I love thee, MUA. This is my new HG makeup remover. I cannot get over how much money I was spending buying the expensive stuff from MAC, Lancome, and MUFE Sens'eyes. If you're indecisive on whether to get this or not, DO IT!! It's 100% worth it and you will not regret it one bit. Pat some on your makeup, then gently remove with a flat cotton round or tissue. LOVE!

I know this foundation has some really die-hard fans, but it broke me out badly. :( It also showed some dry patches on my skin and wore off over time. I prefer Lorac's liquid foundation a lot better for my sensitive, acne-prone skin.
HG cream eyeliners, hands down. I love these especially to line the lower lash line and rim of the eye because for me, they're waterproof. A great deal, a great buy, a great everything.

I love this bronzer. It's a bit shimmery, but the packaging is cute, the product is for us fair skinned girls and looks amazing swirled together. It doesn't go on the skin looking muddy, and is just an overall great product. The only downside is how expensive it is.
This is the best cream eyeliner I have used besides ELF. My only issue with this is it's not for people with watery eyes. It definitely smudges. However, a little goes a LONG way so it's definitely worth the price.
Zoom lash is my HG mascara. I, like others below me, am wondering why it has so many negative reviews. It does not clump, it's a good formula, gives good length and volume, and does not flake on me. I'll definitely be repurchasing this.
I gave this 3 lippies because this is one of the best MASCARAS I have used so far that doesn't give me spidery-like lashes. IF you use the entire system together, (mascara, fibers, mascara) it WILL give you serious clumps, no matter how much you apply. However, 3 lippies were given because of how amazing the mascara is on its own. -1 lippie because it's too expensive just to use the mascara alone. -1 lippie because it's sold as a set and doesn't deliver what it promises.

This is probably one of the only foundations I've found so far that doesn't break my skin out. It's Medium to Full Coverage, great for sensitive skin, wears all day and looks flawless.
I love this BB cream. It makes my routine much, much easier when leaving the house and it makes my skin feel smooth and soft. It lasts all day long without melting off of my face, and for people like me with sensitive skin, it's definitely a keeper.

I actually like this concealer. I feel as though it gives good coverage, though not FULL coverage if you're one with extremely dark undereye circles. I'd say it was about medium coverage. It doesn't crack and does the job extremely well. I'd go to Sephora and try it out under my eyes first just to make sure this is the perfect one for you.
Love this concealer. It's perfect for blemishes on the skin, not too sure about tattoos, though. The only thing you have to be conscious of is blending. Make sure to put it EXACTLY where you need to cover up and just pat it on, otherwise it will look cakey.
