  • E.L.F. Nail Polish

    I have 3 ELF nail polishes in gum pink, fluorescent pink, and copper. The gum pink, which is the lightest color, is mostly true to the color in the bottle, though you might need 2 coats. I was afraid it might be too sheer and require more coats than that. They do apply slightly streaky, but 1. it's more noticeable in the lighter colors and 2. I think the problem is the brush. The brush bristles seem slightly stiffer than others, which pushes the polish to either side of the brush. If you apply it softly and a bit more parallel to the nail, streaking won't be much of a problem. Overall, it's definitely worth it for the price. I really like their copper color.

  • CoverGirl LashBlast Fusion Mascara

    I thought this mascara would be like the original lashblast but with a more volumizing effect. Nope! If anything, this mascara feels like a cheap knock-off. The formula seems dry and it doesn't volumize at all. Might as well buy the original orange one, at least that one's good for everyday use.

  • Maybelline New York Volum' Express Falsies Flared Washable

    I recently tried this in the hopes that it would help curl my super straight lashes, and it did! I really like how dark the black is, it makes it easy to get a dramatic look fast. Overall, I like this mascara a lot, but it does seem to dry fast and clump on lashes a bit.

  • E.L.F. All Over Cover Stick

    I was excited to try this as I've had success with ELF products in the past, but this just didn't work for me. I tried it different ways, different places on my face (I have combo skin), but no matter what it just seemed to dry up and cake on my face. I was very disappointed because I know this has worked for a lot of different people. Maybe I never used the right combination, but after the first couple tries, I got tired of trying to make it work for me.

  • CoverGirl Clean Liquid Makeup, Sensitive Skin

    I bought this even though I don't really have sensitive skin, I just thought I'd try a gentler foundation. I liked how light it felt and it didn't look like I was wearing foundation. I thought the coverage was good, not too heavy yet not too sheer.

  • Victoria's Secret So Sexy Volumizing Shampoo for Fine Hair

    This shampoo alone works pretty great with my hair, leaving it soft, manageable and smelling absolutely amazing! I'll admit, the fragrance is what I love most about this shampoo, but I also think it's effective. My long hair tangles instantly, so it's nice that I can safely brush my hair after showering with this. The only reason I gave it 7/10 is the price. Because of how much it is, this is not a shampoo I will ever buy on a regular basis [nor do I use it on a regular basis, I save it for special occasions]. It is definitely a luxury.

  • Victoria's Secret Very Sexy Makeup Mosaic Blush

    I love this blush! I always had a hard time finding the right color blush, but as soon as I tried this in the store, I knew I had to get it. I don't know if it's because it has the 5 different shades, but either way, it blends to make the perfect color for my medium-olive skin tone (I bought this in Afterglow). With just one swipe across, it's pretty light, but a good swirl or two builds enough color to blend well. I'm really not a fan of glittery products, so I love that this particular shade isn't too sparkly at all, I think only 1 of the 5 color blocks has a slight shimmer. It's definitely more money than I would spend on makeup, let alone a blush, but until I find a super similar color and finish for less, this will be the only blush I use.

  • NYC New York Color Cosmetics Smooch Proof 16HR Lip Stain

    I bought this in Smoochproof, which is a nice berry color that can be layered for a darker tint. For the price, I think this is a great lip stain product. The marker-like applicator is soft, not stiff like CoverGirl's. the stain lasted longer than CG's too, but I doubt it actually lasts 16hrs, probably not even longer than 8hrs unless you do nothing with your mouth that whole time, but I've also never tested it longer than that. I use it more casually than for going out. I like being able to apply the stain in the morning and go through my day without having to worry about reapplying. When I get home, it's faded but there is still some color which is good enough for me. Some people complain over the scent, but it actually smells good compared to CG.

  • CoverGirl Outlast Lipstain

    This was the first lip stain I ever tried, ad thankfully it was free. I would've regretted paying for this product so much. I believe the color is Sassy Mauve, and while the color's nice, that's prob the only good thing about this product. The scent and taste are terrible! I feel that's a huge mistake to overlook the taste; how do they expect women to want to wear something that tastes horrible on their lips all day? Aside from that, it's very drying and once you apply lip balm/chapstick, it pretty much blends and is no longer is a stain, as it will easily rub off due to the moisture. NYC's lip stains are better than this in every aspect, plus it's cheaper.

  • Neutrogena Naturals Lip Balm

    Firstly, I'd like to note that a lot of the low-ratings comment on the fact that it lacks a fragrance - um, of course it lacks that, it's made of all NATURAL products meaning they won't add an artificial scent. That being said, I like the light [natural] minty scent because it's fresh yet not overpowering at all. I looove how it glides onto my lips even after multiple applications, and love even more that it doesn't feel waxy at all! The vitamin E definitely makes my lips soft and smooth. Overall, I love this natural product, and my boyfriend likes it too. The only thing that could improve it would be adding SPF.
