This is a great perfume. On paper it too sharp for my taste but on my skin it turns more creamy, softer, and spicy. I smell a tiny bit of white flowers, pepper, musk, and cardamom, and it reminds me a little bit of coconut. I know that sounds a strange and really spicy, but it is actually really nice. You should definitely smell it!
This is my favorite BB cream. Let me start out my saying my skin is pretty good, no major acne, and only a little but of discoloration.I have used a couple other brands, but this one is the best. It is a little thicker than the others, and has better coverage. When I first apply it, it is way to pale and gray. I look like I have a mask on! This can be good though because I can see that I have spread it evenly and I didn't miss any spots. After about 10 -15 minutes it looks much better, almost my skin-tone, but still a little to pale. I am pretty tan though, so that might be why, After about an hour, it looks completely natural and my skin looks flawless! My skin-tone was even and looked bright, but not pale. I have been using it for about a month and it has not clogged my pores or broken me out. I think it will last me probably another two months, you get 40g. The packaging looks really cool, but it's not very functional. The pump works well, but I've read that a lot of product can get stuck. What you can do is just take apart the bottle(it's really not that hard) and scoop up the remaining product and either store it in a container, or try to push it back down towards the pump.
This is a very good eyeliner. It lasts a long time(5-6 hours) for both lining my upper and lower lash-line and my water line. Also, it comes with a built-in sharpener which is nice.
This BB cream is pretty good. I think it would make a really good base or primer because by itself, it doesn't have enough coverage(at least for me). I'm about NC40 and it doesn't look too pale or grey on me. When you first put it on it is a bit pale though, but after 5 minutes it blends in. Pro's -smells good -has spf -moisturizing and doesn't dry my skin out -helps control oil and keep my face from getting shiny -brightens my face -has other skin benefits Con's -very little coverage -only one shade(which I didn't really mind)
I love this bleach powder! I have very dark brown hair, either level 1 or 2 I'm not sure. It has been very hard for me to get platinum blonde hair in the past, but this time it was much easier. I did about and inch of roots and left it on for 45 minutes and It had got me to level 7 with a 30 developer. My scalp wasn't burned and my hair felt pretty good. Last time it felt like rubber bands that just snapped off which was terrible. This time it felt strong even though I just attempted to murder it lol. I put it on for another 15 minutes because it was still pretty yellow. When I washed it off it was level 8. Next time I will leave it on a bit longer to maybe get to level 9. I toned it and now it is almost white blonde and matches the rest of my hair perfectly with minimal damage. I'm very happy with the results =D
Let me start off by saying this is the first developer I've ever used. I really liked it. I used the vol. 30 with the ion powder lightener to bleach me hair and it didn't burn or hurt my scalp at all even though I left it on my head for 45 minutes.. It smells kind of nice, considering it's a developer. Also, it wasn't that expensive which is nice.
Lip Treatments -E.L.F. - Studio Line Lip Primer & Plumper

Really didn't like this =[ The plumping side smells like really strong cinnamon and when I put it on it was kind of uncomfortable because it was so strong. I was kind of scared because it was really burning. After a while it became okay but I still didn't notice much plumping... As for the primer side, it wasn't terrible but it wasn't all that great. It didn't really do too much either. The packaging was really nice except the one of the sides broke off. That may have been my fault though. Anyways, not a big fan.
This nail polish is really nice. It's a shimmery electric blue. Shimmery might not be the right word. It is not overly shimmery, but it is not a matte color. It goes on easily and I have no problems with the brush or bottle. It is really pretty with my tan skin and I got two complements from complete strangers when I wore it out. That was really nice =] I think it would look good with fair skin as well. Anyways, It dried pretty fast and lasted me a week with minimal chipping. I keep my nails short and use them a lot and so that might be the reason. And for $1.29 at Rite Aid I am very happy with this nail polish!
I love this blush! It is a really pretty pink that has a little bronze to it. It has a bit of shimmer but it is not unnatural or too much which is really nice. It can be little sheer on my tan skin but I can build the color up without it looking cakey or thick. I usually put a powder blush on over it for a long lasting finsh. It makes a great base because it is a little tacky or sticky when you first put it on. And it smells really nice, but the scent doesn't last on your face in case you are worried about that. I got mine for only $10 on ebay but I believe it retails for around $30, which is a bit pricey. I would repurchase but I don't think I will need to because you get a bunch of product. Seriously, you A LOT. I don't really like the packaging so much, but it isn't terrible. And overall it is great and I really like it!
The color looked really nice in the package but when I applied it to my face it was really sheer and powdery, I almost couldn't see it at all. The problem is that I'm am pretty tan, maybe NC30 or NC40 I'm not sure, so it didn't show up too well on my skin. I'm guessing if you are fair it would show up better. It's a really nice color but a little powdery. Too bad =[
I really like this mascara. I picked it up at Rite Aid for $1.29 with my wellness card. It was so cheap I didn't care if it worked or not. I actually am pretty impressed with it. It doesn't smell bad or anything. The formula is pretty watery, and it takes a little time to dry, but that isn't a problem for me. The packaging is okay, it is white so it may get dirty. It doesn't really separate my lashes too well, but I don't really like that anyways, but it doesn't clump my lashes either. And I guess it has protein and other good things for you lashes so that's good. Overall I'd say it's good if your on a budget and want a mediocre mascara that will help your lashes stay strong and maybe even help them grow.
Eyeliner -Milani - Liquif'eye Metallic eye liner pencil -black

This is my HG eyeliner. It is really amazing and the best eyeliner I've ever used, and I've used a lot. It glides on super easy and smooth and it's staying power is unbelievable! Seriously it is awesome. The only con is that I have to sharpen it but I guess that is with every eyeliner pencil that is not retractable.

Love this eyeliner. It is really nice and has lasted me for a really long time. I've had it for about 6 months and I haven't hit the bottom yet. Also, a great thing is that it doesn't dry out. I left the cover off for a whole day by accident and it was fine. I will definitely repurchase once it runs out because it is not very expensive and it lasts a long time. I really recommend it.
Conditioner -Alberto Vo5 - Blackberry Sage Tea Conditioner

This conditioner works great to detangle my hair and make it really smooth. Smells nice and for only a dollar, it's a great deal.
I like this eyeliner. The con is that staying power isn't amazing. It started to smudge down from my waterline to my lower lashline after a few hours. That is not too bad though. The pro is that it is very easy to apply. Other eyeliners i have to warm up between my hands or apply it on my hand to warm it up. This just smoothly glides on and is very easy to smudge if you want a smokey eye. Also, it was pretty cheap, so I would purchase this product again
