Happy birthday to me! Thanks, Sephora! But don't actually buy this. It's just regular chapstick dressed up like fancy chapstick.

I thought I would like a pen better than a powder. I was wrong. It definitely makes your brows look fuller, but not in the totally natural-looking way I was hoping for. This is a good product! It lasts ALL DAY, the color stays true, and it's lasted me about 5 months after daily use. It's just not what I was looking for.
I got this shadow in Nymph (sheer white). It's too white and gold sparkly for my eyes on a daily basis, so I started using this as a highlighter. It's brilliant as a highlighter! But as a shadow, eh. It creases after a few (4-6) hours. Not what I want to deal with in an eyeshadow.
60% rosy pink blush + 40% gold shimmer! WHAT ELSE COULD YOU POSSIBLY BE LOOKING FOR IN A BLUSH. Seriously. You guys.

I got this highlighter in Striking. It makes my face naturally glow like an angel. Get an angel face with this highlighter. It's as easy as that.

I got this eyeshadow in Iris ("burnt plum") and it was darker than I expected. Too black, not enough purple for me. But the quality is superb! It doesn't crease after a day of wear. The color stays true. No smudging or anything. Very stay-put. This is a fun color to use for smokey eye!

I dove into the world of BB Cream via this one, and it was definitely not ideal. Pros: - Light, minimal coverage Cons: - Tinted ORANGE! - Feels makeuppy
This top coat is better than OPI's top coat and Essie's No Chips Ahead. This top coat dries fast, leaves no bubbles, and keeps your nails flawless for way longer. This top coat gets an A+. 100%. 5/5 gold stars. The greatest. No kidding.
Pros: - application brush is clear and glides easily across nails Cons: - takes WAAAAAAAY too long to dry!!! As a college student, I need a top coat that dries quickly. This one does not. This top coat seems better than the Essie No Chips Ahead I previously used, but I need something that dries faster.
This polish is pretty sheer. It takes 3 coats for the best effect. That is my only complaint. I love love LOVE this color! It's so shimmery and electric! The formula's good, too. Solid nail polish. Spices of my normal neutral polish collection.
The only good thing about this polish is the color. It's so different, and no one else makes it. A light Tiffany blue. Gorgeous. HOWEVER. Bad things about this polish: - the formula is streaky and weird - it chips super easily I wish OPI had a dupe. The color. Ugh, so pretty.
It's not like a bright Barbie pink or anything, it's cute and girly without being obnoxiously pink. Goes on well, dries fast. A decent "normal" pink. Like watermelon pink, but a little more coral than that.
