Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - Color Icon Trio - I Got Good Jeans

I own a lot of MAC shadows, and benefit, and nyx, and blah blah blah but these Wet n' Wild shadows are just as good as all of them. In fact, I like them better than NYX. The formula is very smooth and goes on well with the sponge tip applicator. They also give a cheap looking brush applicator that I initially through out because i thought the bristles would be hard and it wouldn't pick up any color. However, the brush tool can be used for blending once you've placed the colors with the sponge tool. I love the dark blue (that's why I bought it) great for doing 'indigo eyes'. The gold is a true gold (i'd say) very yellow. Again, color pay off is amazing, and lasting power is great. I've been using them without base and I get amazing pay off. Better than what I've had for certain MAC shadows. I really didn't like the light blue color, even if the quality of the shadow is great.. it's definitely too dark to be a highlight.. I don't think it would look good on anyone unless you were doing some gradienting with blues on your eyes.. Would definitely buy all the other sets (sadly the colors aren't very interesting) well worth the price. Less than a dollar a shadow!
I was really excited to try this because the strips were cloth which is always less painful than the Sally Hansen strips but the wax was just horrible. Most of the wax came off on me and it didn't remove hair well. Don't ever repurchase.
My first Essie nail polish. I never really want to spend a lot of money on nail polish because I feel like Rimmel polishes or Wet n' Wild polishes do just as well. This formula is really different compared to any other nail polish i've ever used. The first coat when on really easily and thinly but when I got to the second coat it felt somewhat thick going on I thought it was streaky but when it dried it was perfect. I was shocked. Probably the easiest to put on nail polish I have ever encountered. Like many other have said depending on your skin tone and the lighting the color will either look taupe-y or lilacy. Either way its a great trendy color.
Shampoo -L'Oreal - EverSleek Intense Smoothing Shampoo

I bought this product about a month ago and now it's almost done. I had really high hopes for this product it was sulphate free and not that expensive. I bought it at Walgreens for 7.99 (conditioner and shampoo) and I don't think it was worth the money. I have long (15 inches) thick hair (indian) and I bought this originally because I was using a cheap Suave shampoo that was drying out my hair. Initially I noticed a big change in my hair quality. My hair was a lot softer and I had less fall out. However, now I have the same amount of fall out as I did before I started using the shampoo. Also, I attribute the softness to the Moroccan Argan Oil (organix) i've been using. Another big turn down was that my hair was a lot frizzier. I had lots of flyaways and my hair just looks messy. I've never really had a problem with that before. I noticed a few people saying that they didn't like the smell however, I prefer this to the other shampoos in this line.. it's the only reason I bought it. Lastly, a comment on the packaging, if you're not strong when the shampoo gets down to the bottom your'e gonna have a real hard time getting this product out. Think toothpaste tube that you can't fold over. Extremely annoying.
My new favorite color since I bought it this past summer. Sadly, it's really hard to pull off with more brightly colored eyeshadows which I tend to wear more often. This color is more for a very basic look and probably for more cool toned people than me (on it's own). If you add a gloss with gold glitter it works a lot better with warm toned skin tones. It applies really great. I actually like how it applies better than my creamsheen lipstick I have. It is very creamy and opaque when applied but it doesn't feel heavy at all.
It's pretty okay. Good for smudging. Good thing to have in your bag if you're in a pinch and need to put on some black liner quick. I still haven't found a replacement for Smolder. The sharpener that comes with it is great though! Just buy it for the sharpener!

Replaces fluidline. I tried using the HIP (by L'oreal) liner for a while but that always dried up pretty quick. The brush that came with it was wonderful, I've sadly misplaced it recently and was really upset about it. Wish it was cheaper but at least it's cheaper than fluidline. Definitely try it out.
Not as great as Lancome hypnose at all but still a pretty good every day mascara (Infinitely better than MAC plush lash). Colossal smells a lot better but I love the orange packaging. It makes it easy to find.
Great highlighter, comparable to N.Y.X shadows best part is you can pop it in easily into your MAC palette.

Eye Shadow -NYX - Trio TS19 - Barely There Champagne Root Beer

I bought this trio about 4 years ago, popped out the pans and have had them in my palette ever since. Barely There (the creme color) is a dupe for MAC solar white. Solar white applies a lot better but this trio is great if you just want some highlighters! I said I probably wouldn't buy it again just because I don't think i'm ever gonna use it all up!
Eyeliner -Wet 'n' Wild - Color Icon Pencil - Black

I've been using this eyeliner on and off for the past few years and it's pretty consistent. Nice color, sure it has it's problems but it looks great, stays on. And for a little above a dollar what could go wrong. Definitely worth it if you use black eyeliner like me every day. Doesn't scratch it's a nice creamy formula. I recommend it to everyone who asks me for black eyeliner.
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Expert Eyes Eyeshadow - Amethyst

So this color is absolutely gorgeous! I don't use a primer underneath it and it comes out so brightly! I get compliments on this color all the time. In fact, my two best friends also bought the same color and they both have different skin tones and it looks different but suits them just the same. There is a fall out problem with this shadow because it's sooo soft so i don't use a brush with it, instead I used the sponge applicator. It makes less of a mess. I want to go out and buy all the other colors it's definitely worth the money. I was truly surprised by Maybelline! Definitely HG purple, I use it every day and it blends extremely well.
So, I absolutely LOVE this mascara. It reminds me of my Lancome Hypnose. I'm not saying that this one is better because it's not but it gets close. Closer than plush lash. And personally I love the smell. As for clumping, plush lash is better at separating the lashes no doubt but the clumping isn't that horrible I don't think. I think it adds to the look of thickness personally. I'll definitely buy this again. Saves me 14 dollars on mascara.
Tinted Moisturizer -Wet 'n' Wild - Ultimate Sheer Tinted Moisturizer - Natural

So, I read the reviews and decided to buy this product. Apparently it has more coverage than a normal tinted moisturizer but I like that a lot. It still looks pretty light though like not as if you have foundation and then powder on top of it. So it does the job. Natural matched my skin perfectly. But I guess I have a yellow tone in my skin? I'm C4 in MAC or NC40 but more of a C4 which is the more yellow tone.
