    NYX Cosmetics NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream

    Had high hopes, was disappointed.

    I was really excited when these came out, and rushed to Ulta to buy one. I have this in Antwerp, which is a vibrant warm pink with a touch of coral. It feels like your standard longwear lipcolor in terms of texture--creamy, a little thick. It's a little less drying though. However, it doesn't wear for very long. After sipping my coffee for an hour in the morning, I was left with the dreaded ring around my lips. I reapplied but not long after, after a snack, it had disappeared again. I love the color, and the convenient size, but I need a mirror to reapply, and it wears off so quickly! It's a good product if you don't mind reapplying frequently, but I just don't have that kind of time.

  • The Body Shop Eye Shimmer

    The Body Shop Eye Shimmer

    LOVE it, but not the price.

    I love these eyeshadows. The shades are beautifully pigmented, and apply smoothly. The texture is amazing, so buttery but not too soft. I love the amount of shimmer--it's just right. They have great length of wear, but I always use eye primer with all of my shadows. The only thing is that they're expensive.

  • CoverGirl Eye Enhancers 1-Kit Shadows

    I have one, in a golden shade. The pigmentation is okay, but buildable. The price is right, but the packaging is a little cheap in my opinion. Use a primer with this. The price is definitely right, and they do have a lot of different colors.

  • Prestige Eye Shadow

    Prestige Eye Shadow

    Surprisingly good!

    I thought this would be disappointing, but I ended up loving it! I love that the packaging has a clear lid, so you can see the shadow color inside. I don't mind that it doesn't have an applicator, since I always use eyeshadow brushes anyway. The pigmentation is great,it applies smoothly, and I love that its imprinted with the pattern. Good length of wear and a GREAT value.

  • Avon TRUE COLOR Eyeshadow Quad

    Avon TRUE COLOR Eyeshadow Quad

    I had two and was disappointed.

    The pigmenation is low/average.Some shades are even a bit chalky. I do like the color combos that it comes with though. The packaging is kind of bulky for the amount of product. If you're new to makeup and like it subtle, these might be okay. Definitely use a good eye primer with it though. I'd save my money for a better quad.

  • Philosophy Flavored Lip Shine

    Philosophy Flavored Lip Shine

    I have this in Cinnamon Buns.

    The scent is strong, the gloss is super shiny with just the right amount of glitter. I wish it had some color to it though! The packaging is kind of plain, and standard for a tube gloss. It smells delicious, but doesn't really have much of a taste. A nice gloss, but I prefer a bit more color. If you just want some yummy scented clear gloss w/glitter, this is good stuff.

  • MAC Paint

    MAC Paint

    I have this in Architecture.

    Which is a creamy brown shade. These are nice on their own, or as a primer. They don't crease at all! I either use my fingers or a brush to apply them, but find it a little hard to blend (probably just my lack of skill). The paint tube packaging is cute too. It'll last a long time, so if you're a fan of cream shadow, these are something you should try. I'm going to stick w/powder shadow.

  • Tarte LipSurgence Natural Lip Stain

    It's not super staining like those lip stain markers... it's more like a gloss crayon that provides a bit of a stain too. I like the color options and the packaging--I own three already! The staying power is okay, but it wears off evenly, unlike some stains. There is a nice natural minty scent and tingle when you apply it. They are kind of spendy though.

  • Avon SpectraColor Lipstick

    I have to of these. The shades are a bit frosty. It's a neat idea, and I liked making my own shades. However, the product seems to separate easily, and sometimes you have to get some of the oozy stuff out. The packaging is a little bulky, but kind of cool looking. The tip is hard and plastic, which I didn't like at all. It felt a little slicker than the average lipstick, and had about average length of wear. I wouldn't repurchase this mostly because of the color and bulk.

    Tarte emphasEYES aqua-gel eyeliner

    Neat idea, but needs improvement.

    I have this in bronze, which is a lovely color. It has a cooling effect on application, which is weird at first, but kind of nice after you get used to it. The length of wear is okay--some days it was great, other days when my eyes watered a bit, it got everywhere. The liner is also very fragile--be careful not to twist it up too far. I'd say this is a neat product, but it needs a lot of improvement before I start shelling out that much money for it!
