Eyeliner -Kiss Me - heroine make smooth liquid eyeliner BK 01

I normally think liquid eyeliners are too harsh for day time use. However, after buying this eyeliner, I use it DAILY. It's an excellent all around product which draws precise and beautiful eyeliners every single time. I have it for about half a year and it still has not dried up yet. Already bought a back up. Will be purchasing again again and again.

Love the lavender color!!! I'm obsessed with this quad lately. The eyeshadows are high quality IMO, very pigmented, long lasting, and both colors are pretty. Not crazy about the dark purple shade, but the light shade is to die for. Packaging is decent, for the price it's a very good deal :) This is my first Hard Candy product, will try others from the brand!
Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel in Blacktrack

HG!!!! So creamy, goes on so smoothly, stays on all day! There is nothing more you can ask in a gel eyeliner than this. I use it for tightlining too. With the 209 eyeliner brush, this is phenomenal. For the price you get A TON of product. I just love this to death.
Gives a lot of volume and length to lashes. Doesn't clump. Smudges on lower lash line at the end of the day. Overall it's an above average mascara and I really like the result but nothing extraordinary.
HG nighttime treatment! I use this everyday before bed and wake up with soft, moisturized lips! Love it. I don't like using this during the day because it feels too greasy. But as a nighttime lip balm, this is excellent. I wish the packaging can be more convenient tho (I use my finger to apply this to my lips)
This is an average lip balm for me. - Not moisturizing enough in winter, might be great during summer time - Smells decent - Sleek tube Will not repurchase.
I was pleasantly surprised by this foundation. It hydrates my dry skin very well, gives a very natural, healthy finish. I use Sigma's flat top kabuki brush to apply it, blends like a dream. It's my everyday school foundation but i wouldn't wear it if i have long days because this tend to smudge and disappear after 4, 5 hours. This is my first Maybelline foundation, would like to try other foundations by Maybelline.

This eyeliner is very hard to show up, and after few hours it smudges and disappears. Do not recommend.
Cleansers -Neutrogena - Liquid Neutrogena Facial Cleansing Formula

The bottle looks elegant by my sink. One pump is enough for my entire face and it washes makeups off beautifully. It doesn't dry out my skin like other cleansers do, although i still feel minimal tightness afterward. It gives a clean feeling which i love. One warning is this ABSOLUTELY CAN NOT get into your eyes, otherwise your eyes are on fire. Overall, really like this and will repurchase. Don't get into your eyes!!
As a foundation brush, it sucks. But as a mask brush, it is perfect. I use this to put on mask and it gets the job done beautifully. It's only $1 I can't ask for more :)

After having this foundation for over 4 months, I can say this is HG for me. It blends in so well, leave skin with a healthy, glowy complexion, hides pores, and have a nice scent. I have dry skin, especially now in the winter my skin is sometimes flakey. This foundation doesn't stick to the dry areas. SPF, photo ready, what else to ask for? I used my fingers, sigma F05 small contour brush (which is a dupe for MAC 109), flat top buffer brush from costal scents, all works very well and i think i love using the F05 application best. I haven't try it with the Simga F80 yet, I'll update later about that. Give this a try at your local Sephora :) It is perfect for me, I hope it works for you too. UPDATE: I tried this with my sigma f80 flat top kabuki brush, it works wonders! Also, I had always "set" my foundation with powder, but i find it unnecessary. My skin looks great! Ridiculously natural looking and only slightly oily after 12 hours!
This is by far the best mascara i've came across! I purchased the lashblast fusion and really liked it, and thought I should try the original formula too. I like this one better than fusion. Both the fusion and this are the only mascaras that don't smudge on my lower lash lines. I didn't even do review on MAC & smashbox mascaras because the only once i used them they smudge within a couple hours. I instantly gave them away. The lashblast is definitely a keeper! It's a dry formula, doesn't clump, no flakes, volumize & lengthening, what more do you want?
Loveeeee this!! I put this all over my body after shower when my body is wet and the pat dry. My skin has never been better. I mean, significantly softer and it smells soooo good!! I initially bought this to use on my hair, but i actually never tried to use it on hair lol. The glass bottle does not do a great job so I transfer the oil in another bottle which lets me control how much i pour out. This will be a staple in my shower room!!!
Makeup Brushes -Coastal Scents - White Angled liner Brush

I LOVE this brush! I use it specifically for tightlining. I use this with the MAC gel liner and works like a dream. It's so cheap too!! Highly recommended.
I recently read on the coastal scents website that they no longer ship this camo quad to areas that are 90 degrees and above. I bought this back in the summer, and believe me, it was 90 degrees and above. Maybe that's the reason for the not-impressive quad quality. i read tons of reviews about it, people raved how creamy it is, but for me, it's actually pretty dry. And it's not long lasting at all.....after 4-5 hours the concealer just sits there on top of my face. Not pretty.
