Lip Gloss - COVERGIRL - Shineblast

I have two of these, the clear and the gold. The gold glitter is very gritty and patchy. I love the idea of having these to apply over lipsticks but, I rarely use them. The quality is not bad, but not great either. Covergirl makes much better lipgloss, stay clear of these. Also the packaging seems awkward to me, like to keeps in a purse.

Highlighters - NARS Cosmetics - Illuminator - Orgasm

I find that this just looks like shimmer on me. This is nice, I suppose, but its a bit expensive for shimmer. I was expecting something like the orgasm blush and it is very different, just glittery. I rarely use it. Its nice on occasion but not worth it for me. The tube packaging is nice, I don't see many highlighters/shimmers like that.

Primer/ Corrector - MAKE UP FOR EVER - HD Microperfecting Primer

Jul/17/2011

I have this in #6, the "yellow" which I say is really more of a light tan. This is actually the first primer I have used. I would say it makes my pores a bit smaller and makes my makeup last longer but that is about it. For $30+ I expect more from a primer. I think I could find something better for less. The pump is nice, but I think it will end up with too much product left. No enough …Read more

I have two, slaphappy and red riot. I really like these glosses. The color payoff is really nice and the scent is great. They are a bit sheer though. They feel really fresh and light, not sticky at all. Though I don't think they freshen my breath like they claim. They are just fun, go to glosses. I like sponge tip applicator.

I have this in the shade Joy. I absolutely love the color. It is a bright peachy coral. This moisturizes very wells and my lips feel great even after it is gone. That being said, I would say this has no staining power what so ever. I bought this so I wouldn't have to reapply after eating and drinking. I find I have to reapply after just talking or blotting on a napkin. It feels no color on …Read more

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Lash Blast Length

Jul/17/2011

I don't dislike this mascara, but I don't love it either. It lengthens my eyelashes, but it doesn't do anything else. It doesn't get really clumpy which has been a problem for me with other mascaras. It seems to wear all day. It isn't too dark, but I have black eyelashes, so this could be a plus or minus depending on your hair color. I might buy this again if I don't …Read more

I bought this on the advice of many and really am disappointed. I guess it does it's job and it is hard to find a good white pencil, but I really don't use it often enough. I also find that it irritates my eyes, I wear contacts I don't know if the two are related. The cap is already cracked which doesn't matter really, but I think it shows how cheap it is. The good this is it …Read more

I absolutely love this gloss! It is my "HG" gloss. It is not sticky, goopy, or runny at all. The color looks amazing on me, a very sheer light pink, perfect for everyday. It last a very long time as well, but even after it has worn off, your lips feel great. It has the typical tube applicator, which is excepted, but I feel like I am losing some product this way. The price is a little …Read more

Overall I like this product. The color is great and it moisturizes nicely. It is a subtle berry tone with a hint of shimmer and I like that. Perfect for daytime or night. The scent is a little like lipsmackers and I don't care for it, but it doesn't stop me from using it. I've gotten compliments from my boyfriend on the taste, haha. The packaging leaves a little to be desired as …Read more

This is the first concealer I have tired and I will not be purchasing again. I like it under my eyes but for covering up blemishes, redness, lines, etc it doesn't work at all. The coverage is very thin and I don't like that. I find that I end up applying multiple coats, which is not something I want to do with a concealer. The packaging is unique. I like the idea of a twist up and brush …Read more
