  • L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara

    I had high hopes for this mascara just because everyone raves about it. I got this in carbon black which everyone swears by it being the blackest black they have found. I didn't think it was all that black and I hated how this mascara was super clumpy for me. It did thicken my lashes a little bit and that's the only good thing about it.

  • Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter

    I wasn't quite sure how I felt about this even though I bought this a month ago. I decided to give it some time so I can debate what I rate it. At first I thought it might be like other lipsticks I have used and to be quite frankly honest, I can't tell a good lipstick from a bad lipstick. It's like you can never really go wrong with a lipstick unlike mascaras. I was so wrong! I love the texture of this. It feels so smooth like butter hence the name of course. I love the color deposit. I have this in Fig Jam and even though the color looks extremely dark it was actually the right amount of color on my lips. It's not super shiny or too dull but just the right amount of sheen. I've had this on ever since 3 o'clock and right now it's 8. My lips are still surprisingly moisturized and the color is still there. Highly recommend........but when I got this in the color Pink Lemonade, it was completely blotchy and applied very uneven on my lips and that's why I only gave 9 stars. Overall great product.

  • E.L.F. All Over Cover Stick
    7.0

    E.L.F. All Over Cover Stick

    Pretty good........

    It blends so easily, brightens up my face that I don't even have to put foundation over it. I could just use it alone. One thing I don't like is it tends to cake around my nose since that's where all my flaky skin is. Also it tends to be somewhat oily so with that said, it tends to smear and smudge as soon as something comes into contact with it but with a little powder on top, it works great especially at this undefeatable price.

  • E.L.F. Studio Under Eye Concealer & Highlighter
    8.0

    E.L.F. Studio Under Eye Concealer & Highlighter

    Big fan of Elf concealers.....

    I love Elf concealers because they brighten up my skin so much and I always get compliments from my glowy skin and the price is unbeatable. This gives a light coverage so don't expect it to hide your acne or blemishes. I, however, agree with all the other reviewers that this product needs a better highlighter. Don't use too much or it will go on too white. Remember: less is more. Elf also suggested that the highlighter doubles as an eye primer also but I find it lacking in that department when I layer eyeshadow on top of it. My eyeshadow doesn't appear any more intense or anything because the highlighter doesn't have that creaminess for eyeshadow to adhere to. There's shimmer in the highlighter......and not the good kind that is finely milled either so it gives your skin a dewy finish. It ends up looking more glittery than shimmery. If you want to look more like a fairy with pixie dust then I would suggest this highlighter but otherwise find a different highlighter along with this product if you like the concealer only.

  • Physicians Formula Concealer Twins 2-in-1 Correct and Cover Cream

    I bought this for the redness corrector around my nose and chin area. It doesn't blend well even after I applied primer first, looks very blotchy and the green is too noticeable that it looks like I'm the wicked witch from Oz. The beige however blends actually well for my undereye circles although it gives very light coverage and comes off looking too white. It also settles into my fine lines too. Ugh!

  • EM Michelle Phan The Life Palette
    4.0

    EM Michelle Phan The Life Palette

    Love Michelle Phan but was expecting more.....

    This palette is so unique and versatile. I love how it offers a lot of different things like blush, eyeshadow, and lipgloss all in one. But if you look on her website, a lot of reviewers agree that the lipgloss shouldn't be so close by to the eyeshadow and blushes because they will end up getting a lot of the fallouts in it. I love the travel palette it comes with--although be warned: it is quite heavy. My purse ended up like 5 pounds heavier. I can just pop out the colors I want on-the-go without having to be stuck with the same colors. I was actually lucky enough to get this palette for only $55 when it was her Black Friday sale because there was no way I was paying $75 for this palette when I didn't know the quality of it yet. The quality of the blushes and eyeshadows weren't as good as I thought it was going to be especially since she priced this palette more expensive than top brands like the Naked or Lorac palette. It doesn't have the same pigmentation as those brands but I do have to hand it to her that it has a little bit more pigmentation than the NYX palette I got or Maybelline eyeshadows in my opinion. The dark colors are very pigmented but tends to fade throughout the day while the lighter colors could use some more pigmentation. I also find these eyeshadows hard to blend for some reason, leaving me extremely frustrated! I also don't like how this palette offers more shimmer colors than matte colors. I swear there was only 3 matte colors out of all the different eyeshadows. Every time I try to blend them, they end up looking blotchy. I don't have this happen when I'm using my Lorac Pro Palette. The sheer lipgloss are extremely nice and I love the colors. They leave my lips feeling hydrated and the perfect amount of color. I, however, don't really like the matte lipgloss. They are very dry and the colors don't seem to work well. It's either too dark or too barbie pink. They're not a wearable color in public. If I really wanted to wear them, I would have to apply the sheer lipgloss on top of it to neutralize the color a bit more. All in all, this is a beautiful unique palette but I wouldn't repurchase. She also needs more eyeshadow colors in her palettes instead of neutrals. I find these palettes to have too much neutrals and too little colors.

  • Eucerin Professional Reapri Extremely Dry Skin Lotion

    But the consistency was too watery for my liking. I also don't like the feel of it on my skin. It feels like rubber, not smooth and soft like you would expect from a lotion. I however LOVE how after I applied this to my dry parched winter hands, my hands were healed the very next day when I woke up. It was a miracle! All the cracks and bleeding were gone and I woke up with soft smooth hands. I also noticed the elasticity was back in my hands. I wouldn't recommend this for applying to your legs before you put your jeans on because of the rubbery feel but overall I highly recommend for the night before so your skin and dry areas would gain back smoothness and elasticity.

  • Color Elixir by Color Sensational Lip Color

    Color Elixir by Color Sensational Lip Color

    Beautiful packaging BUT.....

    These lip glosses are too strongly fragranced. I love the shine, the cute packaging, the wand, the color but just too heavily perfumed that I feel like I was tasting perfume the whole entire time. I had to return this since I don't like my cosmetics too perfumey.

  • Rimmel London Stay Glossy 6-Hour Lipgloss

    The color is really good and this lip gloss is not sticky at all. The only downfall is it doesn't last long and I have to keep reapplying. Because of the watery consistency it tends to fall outside my lips so I have to wipe it away. It also doesn't seem to be drying for me. The smell doesn't bother me either. I have used other lip glosses that are too perfumey but this seems to be bearable enough.

  • Maybelline New York Dream Bouncy Blush
    7.0

    Maybelline New York Dream Bouncy Blush

    I actually quite like this.....

    There were so many bad reviews on this but it was either between this or the Loreal Colorlift blush which costed an extra $5 more. The colors are nice and not as pigmented but it gives off a more natural flush, something I'm hoping we all want instead of that heavy blush look. I don't want to end up looking like my cheeks were burned. The texture didn't bother me one bit and I like how it goes on creamy and smooth when you apply it and then dries to a powder perfection. My friends found this blush really interesting. They seem to like it too, the whole concept of it all. They're used to the powder blushes but after the powder keeps breaking apart in their purse (kind of like my scenario), they're converting to this. The colors for this are very sheer and they don't seem to last long. I had this on at 8 in the morning and by 10 or 11, the color was already gone so I had to keep reapplying.
