  • E.L.F. Studio Cream Eyeliner

    I wanted to try this because it gets real good reviews, but I find that it is just ok. I got the color "gunmetal" and its a really pretty gray color with some shimmer in it. However the little brush it comes with makes it a little hard to make a nice thin straight line like I usually like to do, and I have always been real good at applying my eyeliner it's one of the things I often get compliments on but with this I have to work at it. Maybe I am just not used to it because I'm used to pencil eyeliners. If it was easier to apply I would really like it as an eyeliner. When I apply it, it actually ends up looking more like eye shadow, so I actually just use it as if it were a cream eye shadow and it looks really great for a smoky eye look. The packaging as with all of Elf's studio line is really sophisticated looking it doesn't look like it came from the drugstore. It has good lasting power too, I have been out with it and didn't fade or anything so overall its a pretty good product, as with most of Elf's products its really descent for the price. This cost me 3 dollars at Walmart.

  • Maybelline New York Baby Lips

    I got two of these because I wanted something to wear on my lips for days that I wasn't going anywhere special and didn't feel like wearing lipstick. I love these as much as I love my EOS lip balm for moisturizing! However I use my EOS lip balm usually at night or when I'm in the house because its great to moisturize my lips, but for days that I need to step out but not going anywhere special I like to wear something that just gives me a hint of shine and color (which the EOS lip balm does not do) and these are perfect! I wanted one with a little bit of pink color so I got the Strike a Rose color, and another one that was more of a natural nude color so I got the Peach Kiss and they are both perfect for me. The don't really taste like anything but they smell real nice and they glide on nice and smoothly. Now they don't really last that long I have to re-apply quite a bit through the day, but honestly I didn't expect them to because they are just lip balms they are not like lip stains or a long wearing lip color, and its not something they promise so Its not a big deal to me. The name is cute and appropriate too "baby lips" because they do make your lips super soft. The packaging is nice too, they look like something a teenager might carry, but that's alright with me because they are too cute!

  • e.l.f. Studio Lip Lock Pencil

    Sometimes I have an issue with my lip stick fading too quickly and/or smudging so I was looking for something inexpensive but good to help it last longer. I read some good reviews about this and it was only 3 dollars at target so I snatched it up. The packaging is cute, as usual with Elf's studio line its very sleek and all black. Its light weight and thin so Its easy to take on the go. The pencil itself appears white but goes on clear. When applying, It starts off a little rough but gets smoother as you go, and you are supposed to apply it like a lip liner. It feels like a wax, but its thin and you cant really feel it or see it on your lips. It makes them more smooth, and fills in the lines nicely. When I apply lip stick I definitely notice that it glides on my lips more smoothly and really helps to make them appear almost flawless. I have worn this a few times and it really does help lip stick to last longer, but I wouldn't say it lasts for like a complete day or anything but it does make it last at least a couple hours more then it usually does without this product. If it would last a little longer it would be perfect, but honestly for 3 dollars its pretty darn good.

  • Neutrogena Eye Makeup Remover Lotion Hydrating

    I use waterproof mascara because its the only one that will hold a curl in my lashes. However, I dread having to take it off at the end of the day so I needed something that would make it easy to take off. I got this because of the reviews and it is pretty good, it is very gentle and soothing as it claims to be. I still have to work a little bit to get all the mascara off, but it does do the job so this is a good product overall.

  • e.l.f. Studio Lip Exfoliator

    I got this product about 2 weeks ago because my lips have a tendency to peel. I love wearing lipstick but it looks so unappealing when I would apply it over the parts of my lips that were peeling because lipstick seems to enhance those parts and I would get annoyed so I would start to bite my lips which would make them start to bleed. I have tried Lip balms and Vaseline but they seem to help with chapped lips but not to get rid of that dead peeling skin. So I do like some of elf's products and I saw this lip exfoliater at Walmart for 3 dollars and I got it. When I opened it later that night I noticed the black sleek packaging, it's very classy and professional looking. When I took off the cap, I noticed the smell, it smells like coconut and sugar, it's a very sweet and pleasant smell. And it's like a lipstick making it easy to apply. Then I followed the directions, I cleaned off my lips, and began to apply by gently rubbing my lips in a circular motion (be careful not to rub too hard because it is a little rough since its supposed to remove the dead skin) When I was done I rubbed my lips together and noticed how yummy it tastes too! I had to stop myself from licking my lips! So then I took a wet cotton ball and cleaned off my lips and then applied a lip moisturizer. I have done this for almost 2 weeks now and my lips are no longer peeling! No more dead skin or biting my lips, they are so much more smooth and now my lips look great when I apply my lipstick! I love this and I have no complaints, it does what it's supposed to!

  • Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes Night Calming

    Not that great, for me at least. They are a bit harsh as they would sting my face a little and they are some what greasy. The smell is nice but just a tad too strong. My face did feel really smooth after using it, and they did a good job taking off most of my make up but not so good at removing waterproof mascara as it claims to do. I really had to rub my eyes to get it off, which irritated them, and even then it didn't take it all off. Also I do have mild break outs, but after using this I noticed I was breaking out a little more. So I just stopped using these, they are just not good for my skin I guess. I ended up buying another brand of make up removing towelettes and they worked better for me.

  • EOS Smooth Sphere Lip Balm
    10.0

    EOS Smooth Sphere Lip Balm

    really great product and cute packaging!

    So my favorite lip balm Blistex silk and shine had finished and I went to get some more. I was actually just going to get the same one but near the Blistex I saw this odd looking one that stood out from all the other lip balms there because its shaped like a ball. I had never noticed these before and I was curious about it because of the packaging and it says that its organic. So I quickly pulled out my phone to look at some reviews because I didn't want to waste my money. Pretty much all the reviews I read on this were good ones so I got it. I couldn't wait to try it as soon as I got in the car I opened it and first thing I noticed when I applied it was the smell, I got the summer fruit one and It did smell really nice and sweet. Then as I applied I noticed how smoothly it went on, and that it wasn't real thick or waxy or anything like that it really felt nice. Its not really shiny its real subtle, you really cant tell that I have something on but that's fine because I just wanted something to moisturize and when I have it on, my lips just look very natural and healthy. My lips are not severely chapped just a little bit chapped but as soon as I applied it I noticed how soft and smooth they looked. I usually put this on at night or when I'm not going out anywhere special because when I'm out I usually like to wear some lipstick or gloss, but wearing this at night has really made a difference. My lips really feel a lot more smooth and they are not chapped anymore. The packaging is also really cute and fun, its what caught my eye because its different and its small enough to fit in my purse to take it with me if I need to. I got this for about 3 dollars at Walmart so its inexpensive and I cant wait to try some other scents that they have!

  • Gillette Venus Embrace Disposable Razors

    For over a year I had been using Shick Quattro and I liked it but I decided I was ready to try something new. I have heard good things about the Venus razors and now I see why. The five blades allow for a nice close shave, and the glide enhancers give such a smooth shave that I even tried it without any cream and it still shaved smoothly! The actual head of this razor is very flexible and moves around any curves or corners nicely for a great close shave even in hard spots. Another great thing I noticed about these is that the back of the blades is open to be able to clean easily, all I have to do is let the run on the back of the blades and everything easily gets washed out, that's wonderful to me because usually my complaint about razors is that they are hard to clean when stuff gets stuck under the blades and there's no way to clean it from the back or anything. It has a nice grip, the packaging is cute and colorful and its also inexpensive, I got these at target for 7 something. Overall great product and will continue to buy!

  • Maybelline New York Lash Discovery Mini-Brush Waterproof Mascara

    The mini brush is very cute, and makes it easy to apply to all the lashes. The formula is ok though, it doesn't clump which is great, but doesn't do a whole lot to my lashes. It adds very minimal volume for me. If you have naturally thick lashes and just want something to slightly enhance them then this would be great for you. My lashes are not too long or short, kinda in the middle, but they are thin so I do like some more volume then this mascara gives me. One good thing though is that it is very waterproof, I had no problems with it smudging all day. so I mainly just use this on my bottom lashes because of the tiny brush.

  • Almay Intense i-Color Eyeliner

    This Is my first time trying an Almay eyeliner, and I'm very pleased. I have brown eyes so I got the Purple amethyst color and It really is a pretty color that goes nicely with brown eyes. Its smooth and easy to apply, though not so much for a winged out look because its not pointy enough but it is possible to do it just takes a little work. I wore this all day in the heat and it did fade a little so Its not very long lasting. It didn't smudge or anything, it just faded. But overall it is a good eyeliner, the color is very pigmented and it also has a sharpener at the end which is convenient. Its not expensive either I got mine at target for 5 dollars. I took off 2 stars just because It didn't last all day.
