Lipstick -New York Color - Ultra Moisturirizing in Petal 314B
sparklykitty12345 1/31/2012 2:58:00 PM
This lipstick has no lasting power. It settles right into the cracks of the lips and looks horrible after about an hour. It's a nice colour though, just wished the wear was better.
Oh man did I want to like this product, the colour was really nice and the quality is pretty good too. BUT weird as it sounds, it breaks out my lips. I get these little bumps all over my lips, and it happens every time i use it (I've tried it about 3 times), so I'm sure it's this lipstick. What a shame.
Cleansers -Clean & Clear - Morning Burst Exfoliating Scrub

Breaks me out every time I use it, and I've tried this on several occasions to make sure it was this scrub, and it definitely is. I don't really like the smell either, it smells bad. Also, the design of the packaging makes it really easy to squeeze too much out of the tube. Nothing good to say about this product.
I had high expectations for this nail polish since I loved the colour, but there are just too many problems. The coats are thin and streaky. With one coat, it looked horrible. To get the colour opaque, you need at least 3 coats. The worst was still to come. After my 3 coats had dried, I noticed tiny bubbles on each nail. I tried to smooth them out, but they would not go away. It makes each nail seem lumpy and amateurish. And now, it has started to chip on the second day. It takes no effort at all to scratch it off my nail. Definitely not long lasting. Even though I loved this minty green colour, it was pretty much the only thing I liked. Sorry Revlon, will not be repurchasing :(
Lip Treatments -E.L.F. - Studio Conditioning Lip Balm SPF 15 (all)

I got this in Mellow Melon. Mmmmm! This lip balm has the best smell, a mix between coconut and vanilla! I've taken it out just to smell it :) I like how it gives a light flush of colour while conditioning my lips AND providing SPF. My only complaint is that the packaging is too bulky. The design of it does look nice and the material itself is good, but there is just so much of it that I find it's a bit annoying. But I still love the product :) Edit: After using it for long days, I noticed that by the end of the day, it dries and settles into creases of the lips and gets flaky...someone even asked me why my lips were flaky...:(
I'm quite satisfied with this product! I got it in black, and it is VERY black :) It stays on well, I even slept with it on without much smudging, but once my eyes watered and it smudged much easier. Overall, I really like it. I love the fact that it comes with a little eyeliner brush, because I didn't have one yet. Only $3, thank you ELF!
Lip Gloss -E.L.F. - Super Glossy Lip Shine SPF 15 - Goddess

I actually really like this product! It's kind of sticky but it's not too bad and it lasts a lot longer that way. There's definitely a strong grape smell but I don't mind too much. It goes away after a while. Those with sensitive noses will dislike the smell though. I'm not sure why they removed the SPF, I wish they would make them with SPF again :( Overall, a great product, and at $1, the price is definitely right :)
Pros -buildable -a little goes a long way -comes with a lot of product Cons -ORANGE (I have pale skin and it looks terrible on me! Like a cheapo spray tan) -terrible packaging (The lid doesn't close properly. I've dropped the thing at least 3 times because the lid wasn't attached.) -no mirror -no brush As you can see, I'm definitely not repurchasing.
I really like this palette! There are so many colour choices for the eyeshadows and the pigmentation and the lasting power is decent. I think it's just sooo cool that it pops out :) The blushes are really nice, but the lip glosses don't last that long but whatever :) However, one complaint I have is that a couple of the eyeshadows have really large chunks of glitter in them :( In the beginning, they were nice with some shimmer but as you get more into the eyeshadow, there are HUGE chunks of glitter. There isn't even that much eyeshadow itself left, almost just glitter. Luckily it's only a couple of colours like that :)
Misc Beauty Tools -Tweezerman - Pointed Slant Tweezers

Tweeze very well, but my only complaint is the price :( but I did get the mini travel one, so it wasn't as expensive as the big ones. More compact and convenient as well.
Terrible - dries really slowly and flakes like crazy. No way I'm buying this again.
Makeup Brushes -Ecotools - Bamboo 5 Pieces Brush Set (Mineral Makeup)

LOVE! Such a good brush set! I only ever use these four brushes everyday. Comes with a convenient case (even though I never use it because it never leaves my bathroom :P). The brushes are sooo soft and not scratchy at all. Have not had any problems with bristles falling out. Would definitely buy again! <3
Eyeliner -Avon - Waterproof Glimmersticks G04 Blackest Night
sparklykitty12345 2/13/2011 10:52:00 PM
Not very impressed...even though it says waterproof, it creased on my lid and smudged under my eye when I tightlined with it, after a couple hours! Wish it came with a sharpener, because it gets quite dull. It's strange because when I tried it on my hand, the stuff is practically permanent. Couldn't get it off with soap and water. BUT on the eye, it's definitely not permanent...
Eyeliner -Rimmel - Exaggerate Auto Waterproof Eye Definer (all)
sparklykitty12345 2/13/2011 10:32:00 PM
I mainly purchased this because I heard many recommendations for this as a tightline eyeliner. With eye primer, the eyeliner is not bad on the lashline, with some smudging and creasing but not too much, but on the tightline, it's almost completely gone by a couple of hours :( EDIT: I got a better eyeshadow primer and it lasts longer with it, but still creases by the end of the day. Btw, love the fact that it has a sharpener.
