  • Avon Mega Effects Mascara
    8.0

    Avon Mega Effects Mascara

    Another innovative product from Avon!

    I was so excited to try this product out when I first saw it in the catalog. Avon always comes out with crazy new ideas. The applicator is everything that it claims to be- it doesn't clump lashes and definitely lengthens and thickens the lashes. The applicator can be adjusted at any angle which makes it easier not to get mascara on your eyelid. The bristles are not uniform and point in different directions, helping to avoid clumps. The only complaint about this applicator is that it's nearly impossible to apply on the lower lashes and it's very difficult to reach the small lashes on each end of the lash line. I am not a huge fan of the formula of the mascara itself; it dries very hard and can be pretty difficult to remove at the end of the day. It does hold a curl well, doesn't flake, and is definitely super black. I really hope that some other mascaras, like the ones by L'Oreal, start coming out with mascara applicators like these.

  • NYX Cosmetics NYX Long Pencils Eye

    NYX Cosmetics NYX Long Pencils Eye

    Much better eyeliners out there

    I received two of these pencils in a kit of nyx cosmetics from Marshalls. These two pencils were definitely the let down of the kit. Although it's great how much product you get, the eyeliner is not very smooth at all. It drags on the skin and takes a long time to get the full pigment to show up. The colors are true to the packaging which is a plus. I don't reach for these much at all because eyeshadow is even much easier to apply and more visible. This eyeliners are almost exactly alike as the wet n wild eyeliner pencils. nyx is great, but this is something that just doesn't work very well.

  • NYX Cosmetics NYX Eyeshadow Base Eye Shadow Primer

    I had higher hopes for this primer, but it fell flat by the end of the day. I have the shade in nude, and it's a little yellow for my liking. (I have fair skin). I love that the primer was in a jar; it was easier to apply. It also lasts an extremely long time because a little goes a long way. This primer felt good when applying because it's thick but smooth, and eyeshadows showed up extremely well. I live in a humid climate and am a college student; I need make up that stays put all day long. At the end of the day when I looked in the mirror, my eyeshadow is always creased. I'm so sad that this primer didn't work the way I wanted it to. Looks like I'm back to scavenging for sample-sized Urban Decay primer potions.

  • John Frieda Frizz-Ease Curl Reviver Styling Mousse

    John Frieda Frizz-Ease Curl Reviver Styling Mousse

    I will never use another mousse again!

    I had accidentally bought a sample size of this product when I was traveling, but I didn't bring it with me because I overlooked the fact that it is aerosol. When I came back, I tried it out. WHERE HAS THIS BEEN ALL MY LIFE?! This is the absolutely perfect mousse. After a shower, this mousse makes my curls perfect without any crunch. It reduces frizz and perfectly defines every curl. I sometimes like to put some mousse in my hair when it's dry without taking a shower, and this mousse works just as well then. This is one of the best products for curls out there.

  • Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Miracle Dry Oil for Hair, Body & Face

    I picked up this product hoping that it would be everything that the label claims it to be... and it is! I recommend this to EVERYONE! If I'm running late in the morning, I can spray this all over, including my face, and I'm moisturized all day long; I also smell good! This product is so dirt cheap ( I believe it's right under $5), and a little goes a long way! Even though this is an oil, my skin and face feel perfectly balanced after this soaks in. GO BUY ONE NOW!!!!

  • Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup SPF 10

    I really loved this foundation when I first bought it. It makes my skin look like porcelain, lasts all day, and it also worked great for stage performances. I had this foundation for a full year. The only problem I had with this foundation was that the color I had was a tad to dark. When I went to buy my second bottle, I found out that I was wearing the lightest color! I was irritated because the sales pitch on this foundation is how it is made for everyone woman of every color... except for those with fair skin. I was very disappointed, and began my search for the next amazing foundation with the right color.

  • Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation
    10.0

    Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation

    My favorite foundation!

    I never have good luck with too many drugstore foundations because the lightest color is always to dark for my fair skin and I found that most of them did not blend easily. I switched to this foundation because my Estee Lauder one was still to dark for me. This foundation is amazing! It last all day, has a semi-matte finish, and my skin looks airbrushed! I sometimes will use this foundation as just a concealer, but this foundation is also easy to apply a light application for daily use. The packaging is also amazing. The pump is easy to control, and I never feel like I waste any product; It also lasts forever. I love having this bottle sit on my vanity, and I will be buying this foundation for a very long time.

  • Rimmel London BB Cream 9-in-1 Skin Perfecting Super Makeup SPF 25

    I tend to not try Rimmel foundations because for a company based from England, the lightest shade offered always seems a tad dark for me. This BB cream was slightly orange on my fair skin. This cream feels very nice on the face, and I personally love how it smells like sunscreen. This cream gets the award for most coverage out of all drugstore BB creams, but I still prefer the L'Oreal magic BB perfecter. I would recommend this BB Cream to women who have medium skin tones and want a sheer coverage foundation.

  • CoverGirl & Olay Concealer Balm

    CoverGirl & Olay Concealer Balm

    Best stick concealer

    I usually don't use concealer, but I decided to give this one a go after hearing so many good reviews. I absolutely love it! It is easy to blend, isn't to thin or to thick, and is travel-friendly. I stopped using concealer because I found it hard to find a smooth one that wouldn't cake up on my rosacea, but this one works. I love to spot conceal and just use powder on the days that I need to run out the door. I would especially recommend this concealer to makeup beginners.

  • Benefit They're Real! Mascara

    Benefit They're Real! Mascara

    Best Luxury Mascara!

    I received this mascara from Sephora for my beauty insider birthday gift. This mascara is amazing! The packaging, like all Benefit cosmetics, is absolutely adorable. The mascara did not clump and my lashes really looked fake! I get more compliments when I wore this mascara. The only problem that I can think of is that it can make your lashes hard, but I surely don't mind it! I recommend this mascara to everyone!
