I bought this because of the positive reviews here. I use this to cover up blemishes only and would repurchase for that reason. It's a very thick, heavy duty concealer which is excellent for covering blemishes but I need to use a different concealer for undereye because this one cakes up on my fine lines and just makes my eyes look very wrinkly.
I really love this! I have it in the waterproof formula, in the colour ivory which is perfect for my very pale skin. I mix it with my eye cream before applying on my undereye circles and it looks perfectly natural. Doesn't sink into my fine lines at all. Would definitely repurchase.

Amazing!!! I don't use this every day but it's a must-have if I'm going out at night and wearing heavy eyeshadow. I have very oily lids, nothing ever stays put without primer, but this keeps my eye makeup looking perfect all night.
Lips -Revlon - Just Bitten Kissable Stain Balm- Sweetheart

I LOVE these balm stains, I have them in many colours and Sweetheart is definitely one of my fav colours! It's a lovely fuschia pink that makes my pale skin look brighter. Very long-lasting and moisturizing, I can't get enough!

I am a little obsessed with these Revlon balm stains, I have them in many colours. They are pretty much everything I want in a lip colour -- long-lasting, pigmented and moisturizing (well, moisturizing enough for something that is so long-lasting!). As much as I love the balm stains in general, I am a bit iffy about this colour. I can't decide if it's pink, brown or purple. It goes on kind of brown, but turns an odd dusty shade of pinkish purple throughout the day. This is slightly darker than my natural lip colour so I wear this when I want a more barefaced look. These balm stains are amazing but I would not repurchase this colour.
I like the texture of this as it's very smooth and easy to blend. My problem is the glitter, which you don't see until you go out into the sun.
I shied away from this product after seeing these negative reviews but I tried it out when my mom purchased it. Surprisingly I really like it because it works well for my sensitive skin. I break out like crazy almost instantly when I use the wrong products, and my skin clears up also almost instantly when I use the right products. Well this is definitely the right product for me because I went from crazy breakouts to 90% clear skin within a week. Foundation-wise, I think it's a little lacking in that it doesn't look completely natural, you can tell that I'm wearing something. But this also means the coverage is quite good so it depends what you're looking for. I use a light dusting after applying primer and BB cream, I think this gives me the most natural finish with light-medium coverage. While I wouldn't say this is my HG foundation, I would buy it again just because it cleared up my skin so well.
Hands down the best mascara ever. It thickens and separates without clumping or flaking, giving me nice soft-looking dolly lashes. I love it so much i just stock up whenever it goes on sale. Stay away from the waterproof version though, that mascara doesn't do anything.

I have this in black and eggplant. I like it...but I don't LOVE it. I have very oily eyelids and nothing ever stays put, ever. This one doesn't smudge SO much compared to pencil eyeliners but I definitely need to touch up after a few hours of wear. In terms of texture, this eyeliner is smooth and glides on easily (I use an angled brush to apply this). I have no complaints about the black one; however I found that my eggplant colour dried up and got a little clumpy after a while? I find this pretty similar to MAC Fluidline, but I prefer this one because it doesn't dry up as fast (the black one anyway). I would say the staying power is the same as MAC. Would I repurchase? Maybe, if I can't find anything better. I'm not 100% happy with it but it's probably the best eyeliner I've tried so far (compared to MAC, Urban Decay 24/7, various drugstore, etc.)
Concealers -Revlon - ColorStay Blemish Concealer with Soft Flex

This concealer is pretty good for a drugstore product. It has medium coverage, I actually wish it had better coverage since it's meant to cover zits. I might buy again if I'm on a tight budget but otherwise I would recommend MAC Select Cover-up.
This concealer is perfect for zits! The squeeze bottle is so tiny but don't be fooled, the smallest drop of concealer is more than enough to cover many, many blemishes. And the thing I most like about it is that it doesn't make my skin flaky! One lippie off though because it looks horrible on undereye.
Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel in Blacktrack

At first I really liked it, but it just dried up on me. The staying power is decent but not amazing, it definitely smudges on my oily eyelids and I do need to touch up after a few hours. I use an angled brush to apply this and it goes on very smoothly. Would I repurchase? No, because it dries up so quickly!!
Cleansers -Olay - Gentle Foaming Face Wash w/ Aloe (Sensitive-Skin)
w0wa 7/24/2008 1:59:00 PM
Over many years this was the cleanser I kept coming back to and now I don't think I'll ever want to change again (unless it stops working for me) because my skin is in the best condition it's ever been. I use this in conjunction with the Olay Complete moisture lotion and I can really see a huge improvement from when I used other products. This cleanser is extremely gentle, washes off makeup without overdrying. It reminds me of Cetaphil but way better because it actually foams and makes my skin feel clean but not stripped.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Covet

I really wanted to love this because the colour is absolutely beautiful, but it smudges like crazy on me. I still use it because it's a good eyeliner otherwise, but it takes a lot of powder and eyeshadow to get it to stay put.
I love this...I have it in Rose Artic but I want more because all their colours are so pretty. It has just the right amount of shine and colour, and the texture isn't sticky at all.
