I am very pleased with this blush. It has good pigmentation, but isn't so pigmented that I look like a clown when I wear it. It has a nice neutral peachy-pink tone, and a lot of gold sparkle. I personally like the sparkles, but they are definitely "sparkles" and not "shimmer", and I know that can be a problem for a lot of people. The price obviously, is great at $3, so if you're looking for a neutral/peachy blush with sparkle, definitely try this one out.
Having seen many beauty gurus use this mascara and recommend it highly, I decided to try it out. However, I was extremely disappointed. It was exceedingly clumpy, wet, and thick, and the brush applied way to much product on my lashes. As I don't currently have anymore mascara, I've been using this one with a brush from an old mascara, and it works alright. I have thin, average length blonde lashes, and I don't know if this product just doesn't work for me, or if it's just bad, but I would not recommend this product, and I'm definitely not repurchasing.
For years I wanted this perfume. My aunt wears it and it always smelled beautiful on her. Light, fresh, floral, but with a very rich, warm undertone. However, when I finally got it, I realized it didn't smell even close on myself. It smelled very strong, overbearing, and gave me a headache. I think that before buying this perfume, you should purchase a sample to make sure it goes well with your chemistry.
Overall, I like this perfume. It has a light, fresh, fruity scent, and stays all day. The only thing is that I don't think it smells particularly good on myself. My mom says that unless I've just hopped out of the shower, this perfume makes me smell like I have bad BO. However, I sprayed it on my mom, and it smells lovely on her, and more floral. I think, like with any perfume, you should probably by a sample of it before your purchase a full size bottle, that way you know if it works with your chemistry. I will not be repurchasing this perfume.
Overall, this mascara is pretty mediocre. It's very black, but quite thick and tends to clump. The packaging is clunky and makes it difficult to actually apply the mascara. This mascara also has a strange, pungent sort of odor. I didn't mind it much, but I know a lot of people would. It does come with a comb inside of the cap, and actually, the comb was my favorite part. It did a great job of seperating my lashes, and if Sonia Kashuk sold it separately, I would buy it. But I don't think this mascara is worth it. Don't waste your money.
I bought this nail polish on a whim in T.J. Maxx. It was on sale for $3.99, and it looked like a pretty brownish-pink in the bottle. I got it home and put it on my nails and I was not exactly upset, but certainly surprised. The polish went on very evenly and was easy to apply, but when a looked at my nails, they were chocolate brown! Not even a tiny bit of pink. I'm not big into unconventional nail colors like this one, and that's why I gave it three lippies. But if this is your kind of color, it is an excellent nail polish. Will I be repurchasing? No.
I love this mascara! I have thin, short, blonde eyelashes, but I don't like the look of a thickening mascara because it emphasizes the shortness of my lashes, and all of the ones I have bought end up clumping and looking goopy. This mascara is perfect. I buy it in brown/black, and it looks really natural, it curls my lashes,makes them look super long, and separates them beautifully. It's a great price, and the packaging looks really sophisticated and high end. This is my favorite mascara, and I have already repurchased it.

I really like this lipstick! It has a pretty, flattering color, it's inexpensive, the packaging is cute, it's good quality, and the color payoff is great. The only con to this product is the fact that it is a pearl finish, which a lot of people (including myself) don't like, but it isn't super frosty, so I got over it. I would definitely repurchase this product.
Eyeliner -Sonia Kashuk - Dramatically Defining Long Wear Gel Liner

Overall I did not like this product. It didn't just take a while to dry, it didn't dry at all. if I touch my eyes at all, or they get a little watery, the eyeliner slides right off. It smudges badly and is difficult to apply. The packaging is cute, but I don't think the product is worth it, and I would not recommend it to anyone.
I am very disappointed in this product. I read many good reviews online, however there were a few that said the foundation oxidized and turned orange. I took my chances, and trusted the good reviews. When I first got the foundation, I was satisfied. It spread evenly, gave medium coverage, and actually looked quite nice. However, I put on my foundation in my room. And my room is kind of dark. I went into the bathroom, and it was orange. I'm giving it 2 stars because the texture and coverage was nice, but there's no point in wearing orange foundation.
Blush -Boots - No 7 Natural Blush Cheek Colour - Coral Flush

I really like this blush. It is a flattering color, and is highly pigmented, so I don't have to keep reapplying. I've had no issues with the packaging, and the price is good. My only problem with this product is that, like most face products, it contains talc. I'm not sure if it is really dangerous since I'm not ingesting it in any way, but I may just go with mineral face products from now on.
I am surprised at the amount of negative reviews on this product! This eyeliner works really well for me. The applicator is easy to use and the product goes on smoothly. It doesn't dry so quickly that I can't rub it off when I make a mistake, yet it doesn't dry so slowly that it gets smudged. However, I do not have oily lids. If you do have oily lids I don't know how it would work for you. It is a little pricey, but I think it's worth it.
I wanted a opaque almost-white pink nail polish for so long, and I was so excited when a found this nail polish! But when I actually tried it, it got horribly streaky, and just way too runny, and I ended up having to put on five coats! And then of course it took way too long to dry, and got all messed up. But because the other Essie nail polishes aren't like that I thought, maybe it's just because I'm not great at applying nail polish. So I asked my sister to apply it for me, and it ended up the same way :(. Plus, eight dollars is a lot for a nail polish, and this definitely was not worth it. I would never repurchase this product and would not recommend it to anyone.
Liquid -Boots - No7 Intelligent Balance Foundation Mousse

This is a great foundation for people who have blemishes or dark circles to conceal. It has full coverage, a matte finish, and even application. I do not have to reapply at all, and my foundation still looks good at the end of the day. The cons are: you have to be very sparing in your application, because if you put to much, it will get very cakey, and, because of the yellow undertone, look kind of green. However, if you are fair, do not use this product. I can use this foundation in the summer, but during the rest of the year even the lightest shade is too dark. I've noticed this is the case with all the Boots no 7 face products. Also, now that i'm running out, it is difficult to get the product off the sides of the jar because of the shape. I will not be repurchasing this because of the color, but if you are fairly tan to dark and want a full coverage, try this out.
