  • E.L.F Studio Conditioning Lip Balm

    Not that I recommend eating this product LOL, but the smell is like coconut and it has a bit of a sweet flavor! I bought this in "Nice & Natural" when I was doing a "mini-haul" on the ELF website. I get so excited when I find a product I LOVE that doesn't have to cost an arm and two legs. Anywho, I would actually consider this a bit more of a hybrid between a lip balm and a lipstick. The color is absolutely gorg on me and works with pretty much any nudes I decide to wear. It really is lovely, and being that it is ELF, of course, the price is right, too! If you are looking for more moisture, I would use a lip brush to apply, then top it off with a gloss or a dab of vaseline/aquaphor. You will love it. The only thing that would make these even better (and I can't really fault ELF for this) is that it doesn't have a SPF. They do, however, have other lip products that come with a SPF. Unfortunately, all beauty brands are behind with adding SPF to their lip products; I wish SPF was included in all lip products, but I am definitely going to continue wearing this product.

  • Rimmel London 60 Seconds Nail Polish

    Rimmel London 60 Seconds Nail Polish

    Great price; poor quality! :(

    I wish I could share some of the other experiences that you all have! I was super excited when my mom told me about this polish. Not only did they have tons of really pretty colors, but the price was right! The bottle was less than $2. Another thing I really liked about it, was that the bottle was small. I change my mind with nail colors constantly, so I am not as willing to get invested in a pricier polish in a larger bottle. (Have you seen the Cover Girl Outlast mini polishes?? Super cute!) However, within two days, all of my nails were chipped. It was awful. My mom and I went for mother-daughter mani pedis; she with her signature orange polish and mine with a pretty fushia, and though the color stayed on our toes, she also experienced the same issue on our nails. In all honestly, I have not seen a polish (ELF, WNW or NYC) chip so quickly. We used our same favorite top coat that we always have such good luck with, but alas, this was one mani that could not be saved!

  • Rimmel London Stay Glossy 6-Hour Lipgloss

    This is one of my favorite drugstore lip glosses. There are tons of really pretty colors to choose from (My Eternity is one of my favorites!), they aren't overly glitter, there really is no taste of smell (that I could detect) and the price is within my budget at about $3-$4 a piece. The only caveat (and it is a BIG one, hence the "7" instead of a "10") it does NOT last. I have to constantly reapply. I am the kind of person that needs SOMETHING (anything!) on my lips or they feel dry. With this gloss, RL is claiming they last for 6 hours - not at all. I would say 2 hours if you are lucky and not doing too much drinking and or eating. The texture of the gloss is really not one that would even warrant any "staying" power - it is smooth,shiny and glossy. It feels nice on my mouth, and I will continue to buy; just don't expect it to last!

  • Rimmel London Match Perfect 3 Tone Blush

    I bought this product in Light and I really like it! Except for the fact that I wish I would have purchased this in Medium instead. The color is so pretty and blendable, but it just isn't as pigmented as I would like. It does have the 3 tones so I try to swirl it along the darker side, but still not enough. My skin is far to medium, so maybe the Light color would be best for strictly fair skinned ladies. I would still give it a try! I am going to buy the medium and see if that works better.

  • NYX Cosmetics NYX Long Pencils Lip

    NYX Cosmetics NYX Long Pencils Lip

    Good, basic lipliner!

    I bought this lipliner in Natural as I was trying to dupe MAC's Stripdown. Natural is more pinky, but still a very pretty nude liner. This is yet another good NYX product - I will be trying more NYX products. They seem to come highly recommended and are often compared to higher end brands. I would definitely give it a try.

  • N.Y.C. New York Color Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil

    I bought this in Smokey Plum, which is a cooler shade of purple than I expected. However, the liner itself is good, great even for the price! I experienced good staying power and was able to line my water line with no smudging or issues. For $1, it really can't be beat! If you are looking to spend just a bit more, Rimmel London also makes a really good option.

  • L'Oreal Paris True Match Concealer

    Concealer is always a must for me, and I have been trying a few different types as of lately, and I found this one to be an average concealer. There was nothing particularly good or bad about it; it is just all around decent and would work in a snap. I would say the coverage is light to medium, the product itself is a little wet feeling, not runny but not thick, and the fragrance is minimal. It does the job and I will finish the tube, but will try something else next time.

  • Revlon PhotoReady Eye Primer + Brightener

    I didn't experience what the other reviews did; however, I purchased this product as more of a concealer/highlighter. I also tried the Maybelline Dream Lumi version, which is my favorite, but I didn't have any difficulty with this product. I use an Urban Decay eye primer, so I was specifically using this for my under eye area, bridge of nose, chin, between brows and corner of eyes to highlight. It only comes in one color and I found it to be more of a peachy pink color than a purple, as one reviewer stated. This one is a good, decent concealer/highliter, but there are better "brighteners" out there.

  • Maybelline New York Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer

    I bought this in Radiant at my local store; it was marked down and the display was almost empty. I am hoping it is not discontinued!! I just love this product. I recently purchased the Revlon version and wanted to compare the two. (Revlon review to come!) I love the subtle luminosity with this product; it is an absolute keeper and something that I will want to add to my makeup routine for-ever! It brightens up my eye area, and can be used as a highlighter above the cupid's bow, down the bridge of the nose, under the eyes and between the brows. It is not glittery at all or overly shimmery in the least. As long as Maybelline is making, I will continue to buy!

  • Victoria's Secret VS Makeup Eye Shadow Quad

    I bought this quad with a gift certificate I received for the holidays! I was super excited to get this quad; I don't buy a lot from VS, and this one was on sale. The colors are absolutely gorgeous; There is a cool purple, a pale pink highlighter, a deep plum, and a gunmetal deep gray color. The finished product looks amazing; however, I had to give it a 7 due to the blending of the product. It was really difficult. There is a lot of "flakiness" that drops onto the skin, so be sure to do your eye makeup first or apply tape or white powder to the under eye area. Blending is also not easy with these shadows; the gray color smeared and smudged too easily (and not in the good way!), but at the same time, was hard to blend with the other colors. In addition, the pigmentation was a bit lacking in 2 of the 4 shadows. I am going to keep the quad as this is a perfect "date night" quad, but if I bought this for everyday use, I would be disappointed.
