Lips - NYX Professional Makeup - Soft Matte Lip Cream (All)

I tried this product in the color Monte Carlo and I thought the color payoff was pretty good for a drugstore brand. The only thing I don't like about it is that it smells heavily of cake mix from a box. Luckily, it doesn't taste like it or awful at all. It also seems to last longer than most drugstore lipsticks. All in all, I am in love with the product and love the color range they …Read more

Mascara - benefit Cosmetics - They're Real Lengthening Mascara

This mascara wasn't terrible but it always gives me raccoon eyes by the end of the day. The color is great and it does lengthen my lashes but it just didn't rule in my favor in the end. Also it was a bit on the pricey side but thank god for free samples.

Normally I'm not a lip gloss kind of girl but I must say that I have fallen in love with this one. I received a sample version of this with my points at Sephora recently and found it to be one of my favorites ever. The color is fabulous and as soon as I put it on, my lips start to tingle. Normally any lip plumpers make my lips look terribly swollen but surprisingly this one didn't. It …Read more

Lipstick - Bite Beauty - High Pigment Matte Pencil in Pomegranate

Aug/18/2013

I recently stumbled across this lip pencil and I must say that it is such a gorgeous color! Very highly pigmented, it isn't too rough or too greasy on the lips, and it also lasts for hours without having to reapply so often. It's a simple twist for more kind of design. The only problem I have with it is that the lid is really snug on the pencil that if you pull too hard, you may damage …Read more

Eyeliner - Urban Decay - 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil - Zero

Jun/04/2013

I've tried this eyeliner on several occasions but I just can't fall in love with it. The color is fantastic and the pigment is soft but this is a problem because it smears easily and can become a huge mess. Though it doesn't lie about staying on 24/7 because two days later I'll still have raccoon eyes. I usually only use this eyeliner to do smokey eyes since it's really …Read more

Eye Shadow - Too Faced - Exotic Color Eye Shadow Singles - Petals to the Metal

Jun/04/2013

I recently bought this product a week or two ago and I've been using it almost everyday. This duo-tone eye shadow is just absolutely stunning. In the light it simmers green (even though their website says it's blue) while in shadow it is a soft dark brown. The eye shadow is highly pigmented so a little goes a long way. If you want more of the green shimmer then all you have to do is …Read more

Normally I don't like buying palettes due to the fact that I never use all the colors on there, but this palette was just absolutely perfect. The colors are really pigmented, last for hours, and vibrant. I know this might not be a good thing for some people, but if you really love color, then this palette is absolutely perfect.

Some of my favorite shades are Blitz, Penny Lane …

I've had this eye shadow for forever and it has always been my favorite. It works great as an intense eye shadow or a soft pink blush. Very handy when dealing with special effects make up work.

Fabulous product, great quality, and lasts a long time for the price you pay! I use it as a base for my eye shadow and liner first, then I like to mix my clean eye brush in it then into my eye shadow before applying it on. It helps the color stay more vibrant and opaque. A little goes a long way!
