Here are all my reviews:
  • Nexxus Comb Thru Touchable Hold Finishing Mist

    I bought this product due to all the many great reviews but the sucky thing about this was that it didn't hold at all! I wanted my hair to feel natural after my curls but all it did was made it fall flat again. Might as well not use any hairspray at all if this was the case. I used it for my baby hairs that sticks up near my hairline and it didn't even hold that well too. After an hour or so my hair stood straight up again. I'm going back to my Loreal Elnette hairspray. Such a disappointment!

  • Anastasia Brow Pencil

    Anastasia Brow Pencil

    Was hoping for better....

    I saw Michelle Phan using this in many of her makeup tutorials and decided to give it a go since her brows look gorgeous after applying this on. These pencils are super natural looking without that reddish tint that most eyebrow pencils I've used in the past seem to have. I love the dual ended tip where I can easily blend out the color with the spooly. The color stays on for a long time without rubbing off. Despite these pros, I found these pencils hard which makes the color almost impossible to rub off onto my brows. Even after all these years I still prefer a shadow formula to fill in my brows. They're just easier to work with and look more natural looking to me. Pencils are just really hard to make the color deposit look even on both sides.

  • Revlon PhotoReady Eye Primer + Brightener

    It does brighten my skin because it has a purplish pink tint to this. I don't know if they put fragrance in this but after applying it to my eyes, my eyes were tearing up like crazy. It's not really good for an eye primer too. My eye shadow didn't last that long with this on. This primer dries too quick and doesn't leave that oily silky substance that most primers do so that eye shadow could adhere to. Because this has a purplish pink tint to this I wouldn't use it as a concealer unless you want to end up looking unnatural. Just dab it on areas like your eyes, cheekbones, or chin to brighten up areas where the sun hits naturally.

  • CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion PM

    This is the first product I have bought from the Cerave skincare line. I decided to test it out and I was pretty impressed with how much my skin glows the next morning when I wake up. I love using this after my cleanser at night since my skin can feel tight after washing my face but this product moisturizes well and doesn't make me break out. Love it!!!

  • Revlon ColorStay Ultimate Suede Lipstick

    This lipstick is one of the most drying lipstick I have ever used. I still had to apply gloss on top of it after it dries. The color is really nice and intense but I hate how it peels off. I was hoping for more of a matte color in these but it was kind of shimmery--something I wasn't quite aiming for. Will return.

    REvlon Illuminance Creme Shadow

    I give up on cream eyeshadows....

    For some reason they make me itchy and they crease and dont last long. This just happens to confirm it all over again! My sister likes this though but i certainly cant.

  • Revlon Matte Lipstick

    Revlon Matte Lipstick

    Pretty decent...

    It glides on smooth unlike other matte lipsticks I have tried. Not very moisturizing but I think that's really common with matte lipsticks. I bought this in Sky Pink and the color was just ugly. I had to return it. I think if I was to purchase this again I'll stick with a prettier and darker shade.

    NYX Cosmetics NYX Lip Gloss with Mega Shine

    Super pigmented if that's what you like...

    Unlike the other reviewers I actually liked the cherry scent. These are super shiny and super pigmented if that's what you're aiming for. These colors looked way too artificial on me though so I returned it. It has a nice texture to it, not too sticky and has a curved wand making it easy to apply.

    NYX Cosmetics NYX Matte Lipstick

    Colors are not true.....

    I couldnt find any matte lipstick available at any drugstore but when i heard about the reviews on this i had to try it out. The colors look really pretty in the packaging but as soon as you put it on i swear its not the same color. I wanted a nude pink color and bought this in Pale Pink. Little did i know it has a pastel lavender hint to it. It made me look completely washed out. Also the product did not glide on smoothly. I had to pull and tug on my lips just to get some color on. It settled into the ridges and cracks of my lips. I know people boast about their highly pigmented affordable makeup but this is just too pigmented for my taste. Even when i just dab it on its still too bright. I had no other choice but to return this.

  • Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream SPF 35

    I bought this after an article recommended this. The only good thing i found about this was that it leaves a matte finish unlike other bb creams i have used and the spf 35 in it. Other bb creams tends to leave a dewy look. This product gave me an orange complexion and the product goes on super thick that makes it hard to apply and blend well. I was left with blotchy skin and flaky skin. It did not hydrate at all!!! I still had to put lotion on top of it afterwards even though the description of this was to hydrate and prime. I will definitely return this and just go back to my Garnier bb cream. Such a disappointment especially since i paid $40 for this. I suggest you save your money and buy something less expensive.
