Cannot express in words how much I love this BB cream! It's the perfect amount of coverage and blends well with my skintone. This Bb cream looks grey when it's out on your hand but t blends in well! There is a very nice cool feeling to the skin. Try it out it's worth the price! I'll repurchase this soon, I'm running out!
Just bought my second bottle. This is the best nail polish I've ever tried! Jo'mina is a cooler electric lilac. It's true to color in bottle. This polish is fine with one coat but looks extra special with two coats. Goes on smooth and creamy. It's a creme with a shiny finish. Layer with TC for an even better shine! The formula of illamasqua polishes is the longest lasting formula I've ever tried. OPI chips instantly, butter London lasts 2-3 days, Essie lasts 2 days but illamasqua lasts 7 or more days! It's amazing The price is 14 dollars US but perfectly worth it, the bottle lasted me forever, I probably painted my nails 40 times with this polish. It also didn't turn thick when it was getting empty Run don't walk and buy it!
Foundations -Make Up For Ever - HD High Definition Foundation

It's hard to find positive things about this foundation so I'll state them now. There's a great shade of colors and the foundation has a pump. I HATE this foundation. I'm oily and acne prone. I was matched to shade 117. I think this shade was not my color. Also, I put this on and looked like a grease ball! It didn't cover any of my redness or acne. This foundation was grossly yellow also. I'm very cool toned and my face looked light pee yellow. I tried applying with my hands, standard foundation brush, flat top brush, and fluffy powder brush but NOTHING could make it look good. The lasting power was crap too! I heard this was good for normal skin and normal skin only! I reccomemd trying a sample first. The price tag is also rediculous!
Eye Shadow -Cover Girl - Eye Enhancers Trio - Shimmering Sands

This is a great trio for beginners and pros! The three colors make a great neutral look. This was the first eyeshadow trio I've ever purchased and I've used up two trios of this! The light color is a great highlight and inner corner color. The middle shade was my staple, it's great alone and on the lid and blended in the crease for a more natural day. The darkest shade is a great crease and outer V color. It's not as pigmented and smooth as the other two but still workable. Reccomemd to anyone:)
Blush -Tarte - Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Exposed Tarte Blush

Oh my god this is my favorite blush of all time! Info about me: I'm 16, oily acne prone skin, Mac nw15 MUFE118, Chanel br20, Nars Punjab I didn't use blush for a while because I was scared of clown cheeks but this is a perfect natural color! It has pink tones and is completely matte. With a normal brush stroke, I get great, natural color that adds color to my very white face. If I use a more precise brush I can pull this off as a light-medium contour. Overall, I love everything about it. The price is well worth it and the packaging is great. I love how the compact is the color of the blush so I don't need to look At the label to pick out what tarte blush I want to wear. This blush will last me forever, I use it daily and have used it for 3 months and barely erased the overprint!
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

Overall, a good product! A little bit goes a long way. I truly believe it makes my eyeshadow more vibrant and it lasts longer. The price is too much! But I haven't found a good dupe for this that's cheaper. I prefer the potion not the squeeze tube because with the squeeze tubeit is easy to break the tip. Also, the consistency changes after a while.
Lip Treatments -Smith's Rosebud Salve - Smith's Strawberry Lip Balm

What can I say.... HG! Let me start by saying this is the ONLY, I repeat ONLY lip balm that has ever worked for me! I have the worst dry and cracked lips year round especially in the winter. My mom bought this for me as a stocking stuffer last Christmas and I haven't looked back since! It works in a day! The smell is so amazing I've tried the rose salve but that one smells too strong, this is a perfect sweet smell:) Only downsides are the price and the packaging. It's hard to get the last bits when you're almost out:P I've repurchased already and will never look back:)
This concealer started out promising and the color looked great but it brings out my pores! It settles into fine lines under my eyes too! The price isn't bad and packing is satisfactory but product really upset me
Perfect "natural" blush! this is great for those "natural" makeup days but it can be built up too :) It's a gorgeous pink slightly coral light blush. Worth the 28 dollars and packaging is okay. THe brush that comes with is isn't really useful, I love the real techniques blush brush with it :)
I was reccomended this foundation in Mac for my oily, acne prone skin. I got nw15 which was ORANGE on me! I tried to blend it but it always looked fake. Worst of all, I broke out even more from this foundation! It really got into my pores and I was broken out for a month, this foundation isnt cheap either, plus it could use a pump. 7 dollars for a pump is slightly ridiculous. The foundation is long wearing though. Don't reccomended if you get acne!
I got this in the naked2 about 5 months ago and officially hit pan! What can I say, this and sin are my all time favorite shadows! It's a perfect brown to put in the crease to smoke out a natural look or it works fine on its own! Slight fallout from use but it's not a big enough problem to care about. I like it in the new UD formula, I haven't tried the YDK in the old formula. It's worth the price in the naked2 but 18 dollars is a lot, it's worth the full price if you can't get a deal for it.
Love love LOVE this fondation! I'm the shade b20, nw15, 117 in MUFe hd I have oily acne prone skin and this foundation gives me perfect coverage for school and doesn't slide off my face. It's too expensive sadly;( and I wish it came with a pump, the way it comes out is weird. A little VA and powder and you're set to go:) I recommend you get a tester first

What a great brush! Doesn't shed, great for light blush application super soft and synthetic hair which is good:)
GREAT mascara. Length, volume, and just overall amazing lashes. Cute packaging, easy to get off of eyes :) LOVE
The casing is awesome but a little weird when closing, AMAZING EYESHADOW. I think this is a perfect palette and better than naked 1. Every shadow is pigmented, worth the 50 dollars!
