    Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara

    A bit goopy, but a good mascara

    Coming from Clinique, I knew that the formula would be great! As a serial High Impact Mascara user, I was very excited about this mascara. Bottom Lash has great staying power, but the application is what I have a problem with. The tube doesn't scrape enough mascara from the brush for a flawless application. The tiny brush is great, though! It catches every every little lash and really makes my eyes pop!

  • Revlon PhotoReady Makeup

    Revlon PhotoReady Makeup

    Decent coverage, dewy finish

    I have combination skin that is more oily in the Summer and more dry in the Winter. I'm currently using this as my winter foundation. I don't find any "sparkles" or glitter as some other reviews stated, but I do agree that it offers medium coverage. I don't find it to be buildable, though. When I added more product to parts that needed a little more coverage than usual, it began to look cakey. To remedy the cake-effect, I apply this product with my hands and use a stippling brush to apply the foundation where I need more coverage. It lasts all day for me (8+ hours), but I have drier skin in the winter. The packaging is GREAT! I love the pump! It allows for an easier, cleaner application. I've used this product for weeks and it hasn't clogged up on me. The price is right, too. For around $11, it rivals department store brands. As for being photo ready, though, I'm skeptical. I don't see how any makeup with SPF in the formula won't reflect a flash. Also, a warning: it DOES settle into fine lines and large pores a little...and I think that is my only complaint. Other than that, I'm generally pleased with this foundation.

  • Almay Smart Shade Makeup

    This product does absolutely nothing for me, so I can only imagine if one has super-oily skin. This product does not set correctly and is a pain to blend. I looked at a snapshot of myself after I applied this makeup and I had a GIANT orange streak down my face! I am unimpressed,

  • Stila Illuminating Powder Foundation

    This is another one of my favorites. The powder controls shine and provides buildable coverage that never feels heavy.

  • Rimmel London Lasting Finish Intense Wear Lipstick

    This lip color is great for the price! It doesn't last all day, but it does last for awhile. My only gripe is that it'll gather at the corners of my lips. Otherwise, it stays put until it fades away. My "go-to" shade at the moment is "Airy Fairy". It's a great nude, gold-flecked, pink that will go well with any makeup application

  • Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum

    I neither loved or hated the stuff. It added intense shine, but it also weighed down my hair sometimes. It smells great and you only have to use a small amount, but in the end, it didn't win me over.

  • Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes - Hydrating

    These towelettes have been a godsend! I bought the lavender infused towelettes to wipe off the day. They seem to just dissolve (gently) any makeup on my face. It obliterates mascara and eyeliner! After using one my face feels fresh, toned and moisturized. For me, the effect lasts through the night and into the morning.

    L'Oreal Paris Go 360 Clean

    I really like this product!

    This is a great product! The formula sweeps away all my makeup and leaves my face feeling really fresh. I bought the green one since my face tends to be more on the oily side during the summer. In the winter and fall, I guess I'll have to go with the pink. The scrublet is great! The only complaint that I have is that the scrublet doesn't evenly disperse the product. So, I just squeeze a little bead onto my hand, rub on my face and use the scrublet after. Not too much of a complaint at all, if you ask me. My skin is noticibly more smooth, clear and radiant.

  • MAC Shadestick

    MAC Shadestick

    Great for a base, but prone to drying out

    I'm not too crazy about the using the sticks as shadow alone. The final result can come out cakey if the shadestick is too dry. As otherwise stated, shadestick make great bases for eyeshadow. My favorite application is to use the lime green shade (I think it's called "lucky") and top it with MAC's Humid.

  • Wet n Wild Mega Eyes Creme Eyeliner

    Wet n Wild Mega Eyes Creme Eyeliner

    Great product for a low price!

    This product is great, the brush is not. I use another liner brush to acheive the classic cat-eye that I wear almost daily. I would say that this liner rivals Stila's smudgepots, but it is definitely not as pliable or forgiving. This could be a pro for some people, though. That line will stay put until you wash it off. By the way, I pack the included brush in my travel makeup bag to do my brows.
