This product retails for aound 18$ in Canada. At first I was blown away by the incredible staying power. The staying power is so good that you could honestly put your head under water and it will not budge! The color is VERY dark which is great for me. The price for me is honestly fine, I dont mind it and already have repurchased. This product can be messy at first if you have not had alot of experience with liquid liner, so I would definetly not recommend it for begginers. Only downfall is recently I have noticed it has been fading alittle as the day has gone on, which I feel is odd but I will still repurchase! :)

Pretty dissapointed in this this product. I felt that when applying this it did not make my lips more moisturized but stayed the same texture with a tiny greasy film that did nothing. BUT I still would repurchase these because I LOVE the packaging :)
Love this shadow! Its is so creamy it just feels like...well cream! Its is very pigmented. One tiny downfall is if you pick up to much you will have fallout but since its a neutral color it would be easy just to swipe it off :)
Pressed Powders -Rimmel - Stay Matte Pressed Powder (ALL)
sysco9 10/20/2011 10:37:00 PM
So I bought this multiple times I think like 4-5 since I like to pack on the powder. This is incredibly cheap anywhere you go 5$ max. And you get A LOT of product. The only pro about the packaging is that it is very slim but the lid sucks. This powder gave me a really set and flawless look and finishes my foundation. I have always wondered why I had little sparkles on my face, but I always assumed it was just my highlighter that had a lot of fallout. But today as I was putting this powder on it was in direct sunlight and I noticed it had little shimmers in it. A product with the description of being matte you shouldn't expect any sparkle that is why I brought it down to 4. I have recently heard that the stay matte line is being discontinued so I'm pretty upset about that. Ah wells!
Misc Beauty Tools -Unlisted Brand - Schick Intuition PLUS Razor

I loveee this razor for my armpits since it gives such a close shave and doesn't leave a dark shadow. I also like this for my legs but since its soo expensive I wouldn't really waste it on my legs cuz a disposable razor could do just as good of a job for my legs. Soo I will repurchase it for my underarms:)
Mehhh. I think I broke out but not sure because I was using mac bronzing powder at the same time soo yeah that might of broke me out too. Soo I just emptied this and put water in to just to stop my makeup from looking cakey. I adoreeeeeeeee the packaging which is why I just refill it sooo if you want you can buy the travel size for like 10$ and empty or put your favorite setting spray in it :)
I couldn't find the review for the chanel no.5 eau de parfum so I'm gonna write it on here. I got this as a gift from my aunt and it was I belive around 50-70$. I love the bottle because it gives a nice, light and even mist but I am not a fan of the smell I am 15 so this smell is way too old for me. I'm terrible at describing smells but this sent is definetly not floral to me anyways. So I may give this to my mom because she likes the smell so I would not repurchase this since the scent is too old for me :)
Primer/ Corrector -Maybelline - Maybelline Coverstick Corrector Concealer

I bought this for 7$ at walmart and I used this for about a year and have gone through one and half for my blemishes. But I have recently started using a mac paint pot in soft ochre( I know weird but it works) for a concealer undereye and zits. And I now realize how cakey, dry and awful this is. You would never be able to use this under your eyes and honestly the coverage is not great. Last power not great either. Since this was so dry I decided to melt this with my blow dryer into a little container and see if it would make this product any creamier; not at all! The packaging is not very hygenic at all but it is good for on the go. Not repurchase it again.
Blush -E.L.F. - Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder
sysco9 9/7/2011 12:39:00 PM
I bought this for 3$ at target and its alright. Both of these shades are very shimmerty which I am not a fan of but some people like that. I would not recommend wearing these together because you'll like a disco ball. I also find the color payoff on the blush isn't great and I'm fair. The bronzer would be good for someone who has medium skin. I find the bronzer is also quite hard to blend so be careful. I love the packaging because it s sleek and has a huge mirror. Although their was a lot of negatives in my review I find this would be great for someone else just not me which is why I gave it 4/5 stars:) definetly worth a try
Fragrances -Victoria's Secret - Pink with a Splash FRESH & CLEAN
sysco9 9/5/2011 3:21:00 AM
I bought the fresh and clean and warms and cozy scents in the smaller size to travel with. And fresh + clean is by far my favorite! The smell is fresh and kinda manly but I love it! The bottles are super cute and the price is pretty decent for the amount you get. Only downside is that it doesn't last on your body a long time at all. Ah well smells delish!
I bought this product at sephora for $12 in black. I really wanted to love this! So many things I loved like the amazing color selection which I wouldve also bought the blue and brown. And the brush is awesome, super tiny and easy to create the perfect lines. My one con that ruins everything is on me it smudged like crazy!!!!! At the time I didn't have a base/primer so I'm gonna try this one more time. Since I loved the brush so much I am now using it with my anabelle liquid liner. Edit: tried it with a base, still sucks.
I bought this product for $21 at mac and I luve this! Since I am very fair I can use this as a concealer wich is what I love it for! It has a yellow undertone so it counteracts the dark undereye circles. It doesn't crease as my concealer HOWEVER it did crease as an eyeshadow base but maybe I just applied too much. I really hope this doesn't dry out fast! As a concealer I find that is covers VERY well medium-full coverage yet you can't tell wether or not I'm wearing it :)
I bought this lipglass at a CCO for 10.25$ I wasn't gonna pay full price for this since you can't back to mac these. Anywho this is a bright pink with definite purple undertones. So it may look a little 60's. On my fair skin I find it too bright to wear everyday but if I'm doing just mascara, I can definetly pull off a bright lip with this. Now, I loveeeeeee the smell of mac lipglasses as they smell like vanilla. At first I thought I liked the thickness of this gloss but now not as much of a fan because I find it sinks into all the cracks of my lips so just don't over do it. I love the sponge tip applicator because it gives a nice even application. Overall I don't think I would have to repurchase this as I probably only use it about 1 a month
I bought this at walmart for 8.97$ and I hate it! The color that I usually am in covergirl foundation in the clean foundation is PINK! Like no joke its looks like they added pink pigment into it. It is also THE most cakey foundation ever! The packaging sucks because it is an open top and this is a super thick consistency so you have totake a brush or something to take it out. Do not buy if you have dry skin it clings to all your dry spots.
Pressed Powders -E.L.F. - Translucent Mattifying Powder
sysco9 8/20/2011 7:13:00 PM
I bought this powder at target for 3$ and I hate this! First off I do and don't like the packaging, I like that this is sleek and compact and has a nice mirror but the inside is half powder and half a place to put your sponge so you get less product then imagined which brings me to my next point, rimmel stay matte(which I love) and is 4$ has 14g of products as this has 3.8g and its 3$! I've hit pan on it after 6 uses of this product and ill probably be done with this products in 13 uses. I also find that this is soooooo dry, tons of fallout and is not transparent. It makes my skin look so dull and terrible. No, I will definetly not be repurchasing!
