I have tried USPP and TFSI and they were ok for me, not great just meh. They would help with creasing but not for nearly as long as this little baby. I bought this for under ten dollars at Sally's and it's now my go to eye primer. My skin is super fair but the color of the primer blends out just fine. I don't bother with the applicator, I squeeze out a dab on my finger and it's enough. I will repurchase this.
I purchased this in color 10, it's a blue based frosted pink. This lip color lasts without drying my lips out. I can definitely see this being a staple of mine, I only need to worry about touching it up after eating. The formula feels light on my lips and it is very pigmented. I will definitely buy this in more colors.

This little gem has saved my skin. I have been dealing with bacne this summer and thanks to MUA reviews I decided to order some from Saluxshop. When I first tried the cloth, I was worried that the texture would be too rough but not at all. I feel invigorated, cleaner, and much smoother now. I scrunch up the cloth except for when I use it on my back, I use it at full length for that. I also like that the cloth is easy to rinse out, and it takes very little time for it to dry. This is definitely worth buying over and over again.

I have been struggling with bacne this summer and I decided to try this soap on a whim to see if there would be any improvement. I am glad that I did! I didn't notice too much change up until the second week of using this soap but nonethmess, my skin is on the mend. I use a quarter sized amount on a Salux cloth and thats more than enough for my entire body. I like the fact thst the soap rinses clean, and a very small amount goes a long way. I have also used this soap in a pinch for cleaning around the house. This is a great multi purpose product that should be a staple in everyones home.
Not bad, but not great. The color is very sheer, and the wear time is very poor. I get much better wear from NYX's round lipsticks by far. This is a good idea for travel, but I doubt that I will repurchase.
I love this blush! This color is perfect for me. My skin is extremely pale, so I don't need too much color to make an impact. This applies like a dream, and it has wonderful staying power. For the price, and the quality, this is worth buying over and over again.

I have this liner in blue and it is a gorgeous color. It was easy to apply, it dried fast, and it did not budge on me. This was worth the $4.99 CAD, and definitely something that I will be repurchase. I do not have the steadiest hands when applying liquid liner, but this was a breeze.
I used Noxema in my teen years, and even I am not sure why I stopped. Lately I have been dealing with breakouts and finally decided to give this a whirl once again. I noticed a huge difference in less than a week. My skin is much clearer, and I am not developing any new blemishes. This isn't the greatest product to remove makeup with on its own, but using a washcloth while cleansing helps immensly. I don't think that I will deviate from this cleanser again!
This is a smooth and silky feeling brush. I have washed it a few times already and I haven't had to deal with any shedding. It applies blush evenly and the handle is durable. This is definitely worth buying if you are looking for a simple, and no frills blush brush.
BB Cream -Maybelline - Dream Fresh 8-in-1 BB Cream

I have very dry, and sensitive skin that tends to react to almost anything that is applied on it. I was perusing through Walmart recently and I noticed this display and figured it was worth trying it out considering that it was under ten dollars. The coverage is light, which is fine, especially seeing as this summer has been especially hot. I set this with Almay's TLC powder and my skin looks radiant, and natural. I will buy again, the sunscreen and the fact that it hasn't caused me any irritation makes it well worth the buy.
I use this on my hair when its wet, I have long hair that is halfway down my back and this does a great job in keeping it smooth and shiny. I only need a quarter size amount for all of my hair. I am on my third bottle and I have been using this over two years now. The smell is strong at first but I find that it fades considerably once I blowdry my hair.
The color is pretty and I can see it being flattering on many skin tones. The reason that I gave the product a three was because I found the application so difficult. The polish was so goopy, thick and streaky. It did last four days with minor tip wear, but the application problems were more than enough reason for me to not want to repurchase this.
I ran out of my old faithful Keri, and thought that I would give this a try. It was on sale for $3.99 and it really works. I have really dry itchy skin, and this soothed my skin almost immediately. It absorbs so quick, and that gives it a leg up over Keri for me. I love the scent, although I can also see some people not caring for it. Rest assured though, the scent fades quick.
I bought this as soon as I saw them at the drugstore. I tend to gravitate towards blue based pinks, so naturally this caught my eye. I love how it gives my lips a nice dewy healthy looking sheen. I took a lippie off because it has poor staying power for the price, but either way worth picking up when they go on sale.
I love this foundation. I found the color range impressive for a drugstore. I have the dry skin formula in Ivory and it is an amazing match. I don't wear foundation on my forehead, and I can't see where the line stops right above my temples. It wears all day and it feels so light. I took a lippie off because of the packaging. I find that I accidentally waste a lot of product if I am not careful when putting it on my sponge.
