  • Gillette Venus Embrace Razor

    Gillette Venus Embrace Razor

    my favorite razor...ever

    This is the best razor I've ever used. The five blades ensure that you get a fantastically close shave, and the large head ensures that you don't accidentally cut your ankles or knees. I've been using it for about a month and never once knicked myself (with any other razor, I cut myself nearly every time I shave). The refill cartridges are a little expensive, but totally worth it. I would reccomend replacing the blade every 5-10 shaves, so that you don't have a dull blade.

  • Revlon ColorStay Overtime Lipcolor

    Revlon ColorStay Overtime Lipcolor

    Good staying power...maybe a little too good...

    I had some trouble with it initially until I figured out that you need to let the color coat dry before applying the clear coat. After that, It stayed on really well, through a meal and an evening of running around. I only reapplied once, after several hours, because it had faded in the middle of my lips. The problem was, I couldn't get the stuff off. When I brushed my teeth, I rinsed my toothbrush and gently scrubbed my lips, and that didn't even take it off. I washed my face and it stayed on. When I woke up the next morning, it was STILL ON around the edges of my lips.

  • Garnier Fructis Style Brilliantine Shine Glossing Spray

    Left my hair shiny and healthy looking. It didn't wear off, and I hardly had to use any, just three spritzes. Amazing price, works perfectly.

  • Maybelline New York Volum' Express The Colossal Washable Mascara

    This didn't do a thing for me. It made my lashes look a little thicker, yeah, but it was clumpy, difficult to apply, the brush was poky and nasty, and it started to flake after two or three hours. No way, jose.

  • Maybelline New York  Mineral Power Natural Perfecting Powder Foundation

    I like the powder, it works well as a foundation, doesn't slide off or cake up. For a drugstore mineral powder foundation, it's great. The brush sucks, though.

  • MAC Studio Sculpt Concealer
    5.0

    MAC Studio Sculpt Concealer

    Mediocre, at best.

    I'm an NW20, and I purchased this in NC20 (the slight yellow tone helps conceal dark circles). My primary concern is the massive, blackish-purple circles I have beneath my eyes. This concealer did not cover my shadows, just lighten them a bit. I could never get it to look natural, it always looked cakey, even when applied very carefully, blended, and set with powder. After setting, it would stay on for 6-8 hours, but it really didn't do anything for me.

  • CoverGirl CG Smoothers BB Cream
    10.0

    CoverGirl CG Smoothers BB Cream

    My favorite tinted moisturizer!

    This provides light, natural cover and evens out my skin tone without looking like I'm even wearing makeup at all! It has SPF 15, which is awesome, and it leaves my skin looking dewy and fresh. It doesn't irritate my super-sensitive skin or make me break out. It also doesn't come with a $40 price tag like many other tinted moisturizers.

  • CoverGirl TRUblend Microminerals Blush
    5.0

    CoverGirl TRUblend Microminerals Blush

    more of a shimmery highlighter than a blush

    I have fair-to-light skin. I bought this in Shimmering Sands, which looks pink and rosy in the container. The brush is soft and works well, though I use a regular blush brush because I like having more control. As a blush, this didn't knock my socks off. It didn't look like I was actually wearing blush, even after a couple of applications. It really just gave a pretty shimmer to my cheekbones, but not really any noticeable color. I do like the shimmer, though. Just don't put to much on or it will be obvious.

  • NYX Cosmetics Extra Creamy Round Lipstick

    I have NYX Round Lipstick in the shades Tea Rose, Gem, Louisiana, and Fig. All four shades are creamy, pigmented, and smooth. They apply perfectly with no skipping, and wear 2-3 hours on me (my average wear time for lipstick is about 2 hours, anything past that is exceptional). You absolutely cannot get better lipstick for the price.

  • NYX Cosmetics NYX Chrome Eye Shadow

    I have one of these in the shade "Beanie." The packaging is similar to MAC's Pigments, just a screw-top jar. When applied dry (whether over primer or by itself), I generally get very, very sheer color, lots of glitter, and fallout everywhere. When I foil this (apply it wet), I get opaque, stunning, shimmery color with excellent pigmentation. I love this product, but it's definitely a little more difficult to use.
