  • Maybelline New York Volum' Express Falsies Flared Washable

    I always get compliments when I wear falsies. I'm always recommending it to friends, family, and coworkers, and they always come back and tell me that it's worked amazing for them. Try it if you like big dramatic lashes. I usually apply three coats, one never feels like enough for me. KEY NOTE- I really dislike the waterproof version. It it literally unwashable and takes days to come off all the way if you don't literally scrub it off. The regular version works fine anyways, I don't have flaking and it withstands my regular workdays perfectly. Otherwise, great mascara. I've repurchased several times, not to mention recommended it to probably 15 people who all love it as well.

  • Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
    10.0

    Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion

    Absolutely a must have.

    Urban Decay Primer Potion is famous for a reason! My sister had the worst problem with creasing eyeshadow. She tried tons of primers, but to no avail - everyday by noon her eyeshadow was dunzo. She was about to give up, saying that her oily skin would prevent her from enjoying eyeshadow for the forseeable future... until she tried the UDPP! It's silly to say but this product literally lifted my sisters spirits because even with her oily skin, this makes her eyeshadow last perfectly all day. Her situation reminds me why I deeply love makeup: it can turn your spirits around. I'd like to thank UDPP for turning my sisters spirits around and letting her enjoy the fun and art of eyeshadow without embarrassment. :) While the price may seem expensive, you get lots of product and can rest assured that you aren't wasting your money. I use this stuff to and will never switch. There's no point, UDPP is perfect.

  • Urban Decay Ammo Palette
    10.0

    Urban Decay Ammo Palette

    Shake up your eyeshadow collection!

    I bought this on a whim (I loved Polester Bride at Sephora) and I'm so happy I did! This palette has colors I'd NEVER usually purchase, like green, blue, two pink/purpley shades, and golds, but I have grown to love each one. Sin is also a part of this palette, and I no joke wear it every single day. The colors in this palette tend to be sparkley, so it won't be for everyone, but I love it. I also LOVE the package it comes in. I'm fairly new to Urban Decay, I'd say since March 2012, and every thing I buy from them makes me love them more and more. Use this with the UD primer potion and a solid brush, and you will be so happy! Thanks UD!

  • Nars Lip Gloss
    2.0

    Nars Lip Gloss

    Honestly, don't bother.

    The packaging is cute and practical, but there are a dozen lip glosses I love more than Nars's line. For the price, it's a joke. The formula is nonsticky, which is nice, but it's not shiney at all (isn't that the point of GLOSS?) and the silly brush it comes with hardly lets me get any product out. I feel like I'm rubbing a piece of slightly damp cotton on my mouth when I use this. Not to mention, I hate the smell of it. It grosses me out. I'm glad I got this as a sample because I would have been upset to shell out the cash they are asking for this. Sorry Nars, I tried to love you!

  • Nars Blush
    5.0

    Nars Blush

    ...Meh. Splurge on something else.

    I know Nars blushes have a cult following, and I really wanted to be a part of it... but I'm sticking with Elf. Twinkle Pink is a near exact dupe for one of their most popular blushes and I can't tell the difference. It's not that they are BAD blushes. The blushes are pigmented and very pretty - but so are less expensive blushes. I just can't justify getting on board when I know I could save on so much on passing this on.

  • Duo Eyelash Adhesive

    This glue is awesome and I won't use anything else. I use the clear version. My advice is to apply less than you think you should. I used to apply a nice medium streak of these on my lashes and found that, while it worked for the most part, the glue took forever to get tacky and the lashes would often come undone at the ends a few hours later. BUT now tht I've only been applying a thin streak of this to lashes, it sticks ALL DAY and is a piece of cake to apply. The tube looks small when you buy it, but my small bottle has lasted me about 2 months and I'm just now getting into the end. Awesome product - love it with Ardell or ELF lashes.

  • E.L.F. False Lashes
    9.0

    E.L.F. False Lashes

    Can't Beat It.

    For the price, you can't beat these. I struggled for months to learn how to apply false lashes without making a complete mess and these were my best friend. For the cost and quality, I would recommend these to anyone. The only downsides are: 1. The glue it comes with is a joke. Just buy the ardell glue and you'll be good to go. 2. The selection of lashes isn't very broad. Now that I've learned how to apply lashes (thanks to these) I will probably try higher end brands to experiment, but I always keep a stash of these as my go-to.

  • e.l.f. Studio Eyebrow Kit
    10.0

    e.l.f. Studio Eyebrow Kit

    Holy Grail Eyebrow Kit!

    This eyebrow kit is amazing. I could see this product being around $20, but it's only $1 or $3 (can't remember.) Either way, this brow kit, mine is in medium, is the perfect color on me. The gel side gives me great shape, while the powder sets everything for great long lasting wear. I am usually into higher end makeup (Mac, Benefit, Urban Decay all the way), but I will NEVER buy high end brow products because this stuff works perfectly and so inexpensive. ELF got this one right and I will repurchase again and again.

  • MAC Studio Sculpt SPF 15 Foundation

    I'm on my second tube of this stuff and still loving it. It's a nice buildable full coverage foundation that can be applied lots of different ways for different effects. Apply with a brush for flawless, airbrished looking skin, OR with your fingers for a more natural, but still full coverage, finish. This foundation makes skin look dewy, which is nice in the dry winter months, but I almost always apply a setting powder just so I don't look greasy. On days where I don't want to wear makeup I just apply this and Mac's Mineralized Skinfinish and I'm out the door. I will repurchase a third time. After endless searching, I think I've FINALLY found my HG foundation.

  • MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural

    I've purchased this product twice because it looks gorgeous on my NW20 skin with Mac's Studio Scuplt foundation. The ONLY compaint I have it that it tends to look cakey really quick - but it is meant to be a full coverage powder so it's not too suprising. I have normal skin, but on humid days where my skin in a bit oily, the powder starts to flake. All this being said, I LOVE it and these mishaps will not keep me from repurchasing a third time. Thanks Mac!
