    E.L.F. Studio Cream Eyeliner

    Stays on forever

    I got this as a stocking stuffer and it's great. It goes on easily, and stays on really well (I use Urban Decay primer potion on my lids first). I have if in the color "coffee" and it's a nice, every day brown.

  • E.L.F. Blush
    10.0

    E.L.F. Blush

    Pretty colors

    I just bought this blush in a bright, almost neon pink color. I wasn't expecting much because of the low price but it works great. The packaging is nice and includes a mirror. The color is vibrant, but is definitely not like clown makeup. You can build the color up, which is great.

  • Clean & Clear Dual Action Moisturizer

    This product is ok. It isn't particularly moisturizing, but it works as a good night lotion when your skin isn't great and is breaking out. It has a strong salicylic acid smell so I wouldn't use it as a day time lotion.

  • Clean & Clear Morning Glow Moisturizer with SPF 15

    I really loved this lotion for a few years and used it religiously from ages 15-18 but my skin is changing a bit and needs a heavier lotion, especially in winter. It's a good value for the price (I think it's less than $5 a bottle, or not much more than that) and it lasts for a few months. The pump bottle makes it easy to use and easy to get all of the product out (just unscrew the lid when it starts running out). I love that it has SPF in it. It isn't a lot (SPF 15) but at least it's something. It doesn't make your skin look pale even with the sunscreen which is great. If you have pretty dry skin I would say to stick with something heavier, but if you have average/combination skin this lotion works great.

  • Clean & Clear Finishes Pore Perfecting Moisturizer

    This product worked pretty well. It made my skin pretty soft (unless it was really dry that day), and it left my skin a nice glow. However, this lotion is actually pretty expensive when you consider the price to how many ounces you get. I switched to the Clean and Clear Morning Burst face lotion and it works fine, plus it's cheaper and has more product, plus it has SPF.

  • Urban Decay De-Slick Oil Control Makeup Setting Spray

    I was a little skeptical about how well this would work, but I'm now seriously addicted to it (which is kind of unfortunate because it is a little pricey). If I forget to use it, it's obvious whenever I look in a mirror or touch my face. I have mildly oily skin, and this keeps almost all of my oil at bay. A little bit does come through, but it makes me skin look sliiiiightly dewy, but not oily at all. It's also fantastic for keeping blush, powder, bronzer, etc. vibrant and in place for hours. The directions say to use it before and after applying foundation. I don't know if it's necessary to use it before, but definitely use it after. If I don't use it after I slick up quickly. I've also found that you only need 3 sprays of it: one on your forehead area, and one of each side of the lower half of your face). Keep your eyes closed while you spray it. After you spray it, walk forward and then open your eyes so it doesn't get into them, but open your eyes quickly so your mascara doesn't get sticky and make your lashes stick together. All in all, I definitely recommend this product if you have oily skin and/or have trouble getting your makeup to stay put all day.

  • Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion

    I am seriously in love this this product. My skin is gets decently oily, but my eyelids really do get oily. My eyeshadow always looks bad after a few hours. It usually creases horribly and rubs off super easily even if I use "high end" shadow. The urban decay primer potion kept it in place alllllll day without any creasing. It even still looked pretty decent (and had not creased) when I didn't wash my face before I went to bed (I know, bad). The product takes a little bit of getting used to though. Don't use as much as what comes out on the wand, that's enough for both your lids. It's also helpful to rub the excess underneath your eye and along the outer corners to help keep eyeliner in place. Also, wait like 30 seconds to a minute before applying your shadow to let the primer dry.

  • OPI RapiDry Spray
    8.0

    OPI RapiDry Spray

    Review subject

    As another review already mentioned, don't expect rock hard nails after applying this. I got this as a stocking stuffer and have used it a few times. It's great for drying the top of the nail polish so you don't have to sit around waiting for it to dry, but still be careful not to do anything that could smudge the polish (like going to bed and waking up with those dreaded sheet creases in your polish...). The directions on the box it came with say to spray it on after your last coat of nail polish, but I use it after my last coat of color and my last coat of top coat and it's worked out great for the handful of times I've used it.

  • OPI Top Coat
    9.0

    OPI Top Coat

    Review subject

    I think this top coat works great, but I haven't really tried many others, especially any other "high end" brands. I usually only buy OPI nail polish, which is why I use the OPI topcoat. I got a little sample bottle of it a year ago which worked well. It started to get really thick, gooey, and sticky after about a year of using it whenever I did my nails (about one or two times a month), and sometimes even using it as a base coat. I would not call it a high shine top coat, but that isn't to say that it isn't shiny, it's a great "regular" topcoat. I used it recently on top of glitter and the glitter help up pretty well for about three days (which is a pretty good length for glitter) before it started to chip, but I probably should have reapplied the top coat anyway. All in all love it and don't plan on buying a different brand anytime soon:)

  • OPI Natural Nail Base Coat

    To be fair, this is the only base coat I have tried. I used to just use a top coat as a base coat, only to prevent staining. This base coat drys really fast, which is awesome if you are impatient like me and just want to get to the fun part--actually using color:) It goes only smoothly without any of those annoying little bubbles. I used it for my new year's eve nails (pail pinks nails with silver glitter tips) and my manicure looked good for about a week. The glitter started to chip a bit but that was my fault for not applying a top coat every couple of days. 10 days later, the glitter has mostly chipped off but the pale pink is still hanging on just fine. I used it as a glue for glitter on the tips of my nails and it adhered well (I followed with the OPI top coat). All in all a great product:)
