    Too Faced Brow Envy Kit

    Too Faced Brow Envy Kit

    My favorite brow kit. It comes with everything you need (the new one): three stencils, two different shades for filling in the brows, a wax to set them, a highlighter, little tweezers, and a little angled brush. The two shades are nice because you can mix them together and get a desired color. The lighter one is more for blonde/ lighter brown brows. The brown one could be darker, but whatever. The wax I don't care for; it gets dirty from the powder if you don't clean the brush first and it is just gross now. I use the Maybelline Great lash clear mascara to set my brows. The high lighter for under your brows is a very matte, light pink. I find it to be too powdery, I don't use it at all. The tweezers are very nice quality and I use them a lot. The brush is small, but works well and gives you a lot of control. At first it is hard to hold the stencil and fill in your brows too, but practice helps. There's a stencil for every shape, very useful and you get choices. I don't use the stencils anymore because I've learned how to make the shape I like without them, but they are great for beginners. I think this brow kit is great because it comes with absolutely everything you need for perfect eye brows. It doesn't cater to hair colors besides blonde and brunette, but other than that I think this is a very nice kit for people with those hair colors. And the price is thirty five dollars at Sephora, so it is relatively cheap for getting everything you need. It is great for beginners, so if you are just starting out with filling in or doing your eye brows, I definitely reccomend this.

  • Herbal Essences Tousle Me Softly Hairspray

    It has a nice smell, but it doesn't hold your style and it makes your hair very sticky

  • Tarte Clean Slate Flawless 12-Hour Brightening Primer

    Makes my skin smooth, but never greasy. Helps control oil, and makes my foundation last a lot longer. However, it's not the best primer I've tried.

  • Make Up For Ever Full Cover Concealer

    This is the best full coverage concealer I have ever tried. It covers EVERYTHING. I had a very large scratch on my face a few months ago and just a couple drops made it completely disappear. It covers my horrid under eye circles completely with no problem. It lasts all day, no matter how much sweat and oil I have on my face it's still there by the time I'm getting ready for bed. It blends nicely, but as soon as you apply it start blending because it settles kind of quickly. Once it has settled, it does not move at all!

  • Benefit High Beam

    Benefit High Beam

    Favorite highlighter!

    Very very VERY beautiful highlighter. It looks really white in the bottle but it is very subtle and nice after you blend it out. It's quite shimmery, but it looks like a very natural glow. Most of the time I just dab this on my cheekbones and cupid's bow after I apply foundation, but on days that I want a really nice all over glow I mix one of two drops with my foundation. If you are having a sick day, or you didn't sleep well the night before, or if you're just not feeling so bright eyed and bushy tailed, just a little bit will make you look so healthy and awake, it's such a life saver for me during flu season. The price is a little bit high for such a small bottle, but I have had mine for about a year and a half and I use it everyday. I am no where near finishing the bottle. You only need to use a very small amount for a desirable look; about two or three drops depending on your taste and how much of a glow you want. A little goes a long way with this highlighter. Also, it lasts all day on my skin, even when I am really sweaty after the gym or a long day. Since other people are saying what they prefer, I would think that this may take a few more seconds to apply than a powder highlighter, but this brush gives you a lot more control than a powder brush would. You can put it exactly where you want it. I think this is more suited for lighter skin tones, I can imagine it being too light for people with darker skin. However, if you have light or even medium skin, I think this is a must try.

  • L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara Black

    All of my friends use this mascara and they love it, so I decided to give it a try. It wouldn't coat my lashes evenly and it didn't look right. It had a very thick consistency, which made it hard to evenly distribute. It wouldn't move around. The brush was a weird shape and didn't give me much control over where the msacara went. Also, it was pretty clumpy and made my lashes stick together, even after I tried to brush them out with a lash comb. It didn't give them much length, thickness, or definition. It kind of just sat on them and made them a little bit blacker. It weighed my lashes down and made them straight, even though they are naturally pretty curled. It stayed on all day and didn't smudge at all, but that night when I was removing my makeup it would not come off. I gave this away after a couple uses, it just was not worth it to keep. Everyone seems to like this mascara, so maybe it's just me but this was definitely a disappointing mascara.

  • The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil Facial Blotting Tissues

    These work quite well at absorbing oil. They work better than many other blotting papers I have tried. However, the smell just turns me off from these. I hate the smell of tea tree oil, and if these came unscented they would be absolutely perfect for me.

  • Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter

    When I first heard about these, I was very interested and went out to my drug store to buy one. Once I tried it, I came back the very next day and bought a bunch more. My favorite shades are Creamsicle (a very light nude /peachy/ orange color, very nice) and Tutti Fruiti (a bright coral color, simply gorgeous on light skin) They are very moisturizing, and very pigmented. LIke a cross between a lip balm and lipstick. They are shiny, but not glittery or too frosty. They come in a very wide variety of colors, so there is at least one for everyone that they will love. One of the downsides is that they wear off kind of quickly. They rub off easily, so if you touch your mouth or kiss someone they are bound to come off a little. Also, I feel like they are hard to find and that the most popular shades are often sold out, although you can find them on websites that sell drugstore products. Depsite the wear and availability or these lip butters, they are still some of my favorite lip products and I most definitely will be purchasing and repurchasing many more in the future.

  • Avon Ideal Flawless Invisible Coverage Liquid Foundation SPF 15

    All of the shades are very yellow, unless you're a member of the Simpson's I don't think this would match your face either. Also, it feels so greasy and oily, it feels like a bucket of nasty grease just got thrown on your face. It melts off so quickly, and I hate when that happens. I threw it away after two uses, and I never do that. This is a horrible foundation
