  • E.L.F. Essential Eye Shadow Brush

    This is a great shadow brush. I use it all the time, and reach for it just as much as I reach for my more expensive ones. It picks up the perfect amount of pigment, yet does not leave streaks on my pressed eyeshadows. It is the perfect size for my eye, not too big, not too small and it doesn't shed when I wash it. The hairs are dense and it works as well as pricier brushes. Totally worth buying a few for only $1 each!

    Wet n Wild MegaSlicks Lip Gloss

    Lip Gloss On the Cheap

    This lip gloss is very inexpensive, but not bad for the price. I really like the colors they come in, they do not look cheap or too young, and there is an acceptable range of colors. Though some of them can look too frosty, the shine kind of tones it down. The lip gloss is sticky, which I like because it stays on for a while. The only problem I have with these are the taste and smell. They do taste kind of cheap and plastic-like in my opinion. These are worth buying if you want a cheap thrill or you are away from home and need a lip gloss in a pinch.

  • L'Oreal Paris HiP Studio Secrets Professional Color Truth Cream Eyeliner

    I find these liners comparable to MAC Fluidlines. They are soft, creamy, and easy to apply. They stay all day on me, but come off easily with eye makeup remover. I really love the colors too, there is black and brown, but there is also a beautiful midnight blue and eggplant purple. I would not recommend the teal color however, because it tends to be dry and hard to use. Also, I wouldn't use the brush it comes with, it is too thick for eyeliner. Though it is only a few dollars cheaper than the MAC ones, you can find these for buy one get one, plus they come with a lot more product in them. To me, these are a great alternative for those who do not want to buy Fluidlines.

  • N.Y.C. New York Color Smooth Skin Loose Face Powder

    I use this powder everyday. It is inexpensive and works well. It makes my skin matte without leaving it white looking. It blends in well and doesn't just sit on your foundation. This stuff keeps me matte all day when used with my favorite foundation. I apply it with a fluffy powder brush, I wouldn't recommend using the pad it comes with. Also, the container is a little hard to deal with, so I transfer it into my own sifter. Even with those two flaws of the product, it is still worth buying because it is only $4 for a lot of powder.

    Not Even OK

    I did not like this moisturizer at all. It did not make me less shiny or make my skin matte. It just broke me out. I think it has to do with the cocoa butter in the product. The only good thing about this moisturizer is that it smelled good. Other than that, it is pricey for something that doesn't really do what it is supposed to, even if by some chance it doesn't break you out. I think it is a bad idea to market something as pore-clogging as cocoa butter to people with acne-prone skin. I would not buy this again, or any Lush moisturizer for that matter.

    Makes Hair Soft

    I love this leave in conditioner because it makes my hair super soft. The smell is great, it is spicy and clove-like. All you have to do is work it into your hair, leave it in and wash it out. I have tried other leave in conditioners, but none that have worked as well at getting my hair soft and shiny as this one. The only problem with it is that there is not much in a pot of this, especially if you have long hair. I am also not thrilled about the expiration date, but I understand that this is natural and preservative free. This is worth buying and buying again when it runs out!

  • M.A.C. Lipstick

    M.A.C. Lipstick

    Wide Range

    I love MAC lipstick in general and own over 40 of them. I love them so much because if the wide range of colors and finishes they come in. There is literally something for everyone and I will never get bored. They come in many colors, from pale pinks to bright orange, and they almost always release new ones with their limited edition collections. The finishes are great, for those who don't like heavy lipsticks there are glazes, for those who like drama there are mattes. My personal favorites are the amplified cremes which have a moisturizing, creamy texture. Though some don't stay on that long and some of the mattes dry out my lips a bit (which I fix with a coat of lip balm before) they are a great value at only $14.

  • Anastasia Brow Gel

    I love this brow gel. It really holds my brows in place without having that wet look to them. My brows always seem to point downward making them look bad no matter how I tweeze. This brow gel fixes the problem and keeps my brows in place all day. It leaves my brows kinda crunchy, but to me, thats just a sign that it is really holding. The only thing I do not like about this product is the price. $21 seems a lot for clear brow gel, and for some reason the tinted ones in this brand are cheaper. I would still continue to buy this at the current price though, because I tried drugstore ones and they do not seem to compare.

  • L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara

    I bought this mascara to get a free eyeshadow, but since I heard so many great things about it, I was excited to try it. I was disappointed. Though it did give me semi-dramatic lashes with some volume, it smudged everywhere like crazy. I also did not like the fact that it was clumpy. Though some people like this mascara, I guess it just isn't for me. I still use it because I don't want to waste it, but only for times I will not be wearing it long.

  • Wet n Wild MegaLiner Liquid Eyeliner

    I love this liquid liner. The applicator is a tiny brush, not a felt tip, which I find easier to control. It is easy to apply, with an ok drying time, fast enough so that you don't smudge it, slow enough to do some quick fixes. The colors they come in are wonderful. You can get basic black, or you can get a gorgeous bronze/brown,or a pretty teal to spice up your look. I also have this one in purple, and it turns out not too bright, but subtle and beautiful. Without rubbing your eyes, it lasts all day, and it is pretty cheap, around $3 in the US. I would buy it again and recommend it to my friends.
