  • CoverGirl Eye Enhancers 1-Kit Shadows

    I got this for a present a while back last year. Since then, I have barely made a dent in the container even though I use it almost every day! I have this shadow in the shade, "Bedazzled Biscotti", and very pretty shimmery brownish-pearly color..it's hard to describe. This is a rare case where I actually like the sponge applicator that came with the product! WOW! Very impressed. It's a very sturdy dual-ended applicator with a nice, large applicator on one side and a pointed-ish one on the other. At my local drugstore, these are $3.14 each, a very great value if I must say so myself. Champagne is also one of these I've heard is a great highlight color, but I've never tried it. Some of these are even dupes for higher end brands. If you're even at all thinking about getting one of these, GO GET YOU SOME! They're really great!(:

  • Suave Kids Double Dutch Apple Detangling Spray

    I only picked this up as a favor to a friend for her daughter, but I ended up buying a bottle for myself as well!(: Adult detanglers are very expensive and this works just as well and smells nice too. This is very well worth the cheap price! It's great for those days when I just don't have time to condition and need to comb my hair.

  • N.Y.C. New York Color Smooth Skin Loose Face Powder

    I love this NYC powder! The finish is great, and it leaves my skin feeling very light, almost like I'm not wearing makeup. The finish is matte, always a nice addition. I bought the powder in translucent, a clear color (obviously). It's great, but the problem I have with it is that it is EXTREMELY messy. The powder puff it comes with sucks. It doesn't have a twist cap, it actually has a cap you just pull off, which makes for extra messiness. Be sure to find your vacuum, you'll need it! I was washing powder off my jeans for weeks! However, for the modest $2.79 I paid, I'm impressed with the quality. I haven't seen any changes in how long my makeup has stayed and not strayed, but I'll keep trying and hopefully let you know. However, if you're in the meaning to get a new loose powder, I'd look for this or a higher end product. The texture of this product is mostly very silky and smooth. Be warned, however, the packaging is quite bulky. The product does last a long time. The powder comes out the top through a sifter, and the packaging suggests when you first open the product to take off the covering, make sure the powder puff is on the sifter and shake it. DO NO do this..this caused a terrible mess all over my carpeting! I had to vacuum it all up..haha. Sooooo. I think otherwise that this product is great and you should purchase it. Sorry that this review jumped around a lot..I am very tired and will be reviewing more products soon! :)

  • CoverGirl LashBlast Fusion Mascara

    I love this mascara and the orange packaged mascara fro m Covergirl. THIS IS MY HOLY GRAIL. Every morning I curl my lashes with the ELF mechanical eyelash curler and then apply two coats of this. This mascara is ABSOLUTELY flawless. I am in love. $8 is actually a very nicely priced mascara. My lashes are actually very long and thick but stick straight. This mascara holds the curl better than any other mascara I've ever used. I've tried everything from Laura Mercier to ELF, and this was the BEST. Please give this mascara a try. It's formula is very "creamy" and high quality.

    I keep repurchasing these wipes! These are great quality and very nice smelling. I don't wear too much makeup and these seem to do the trick!

  • Maybelline New York Color Sensational Lipstain

    Many people are saying this Maybelline lip stain is very drying--and I'd have to agree. However, I've found that if you put a heavy layer of lip balm underneath and overtop, finishing off with a lip gloss, everything seems fine and the color is great. I have it in 35, Blushing, a very nice berry shade for my bronzey/olive skin tone. Please try this out!

  • E.L.F. Hypershine Gloss

    E.L.F. Hypershine Gloss

    Pretty Nice For $1

    I have this ELF Hypershine Gloss in Vixen, which has an alright smell and it's a very sheer reddish pink color. It's a little sticky, but it helps the color stay on. It's really pretty and the brush applicator is alright. The Stila lip glazes are basically the same as this, however, I've never tried them, so you can speak for yourself. For $1, I really like these and I'll probably buy more. These are very wearable for anyone from beginning in makeup to a pro. It's always worth a try! (: I've heard that every single one except Vixen has a very strong pina colada smell, but Vixen has a fake cherry smell...I'm not sure though. I will certainly go back to Target to buy more of these and the luscious liquid lipsticks. I am soooooooooo happy with this product though..and I'm not sure why people don't like it! At first I wasn't sure, but it grew on me. Please check this out, it's awesome!

  • EOS Smooth Sphere Lip Balm

    To me, even for a great lip balm, this is a little pricey. I really love these though! I have three, one in Sweet Mint (my fave), Summer Fruit (least fave), and Sugar Lemon. These are really moisturizing, and they taste good too. They're all natural, and I love them! I'd recommend them if you don't mind the semi-bulky packaging. I mean, I don't really carry lip balm in my pocket as much as in my purse, so it's not a problem Otherwise, I do highly recommend this! (:

  • Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio

    Walking on Eggshells is the most flawless shade ever. Goes extremely well with brown/hazel/green eyes. Love the shimmery eyelid color. The crease color contours nicely, and the browbone color also goes nicely in the inner corner. A very natural look for everyday--some of the colors are dupes for the UD Naked Palette! :D Love this trio, AMAZING. Super pigmented. Only $2.99, BUY ITTT!(:

  • E.L.F. Luscious Liquid Lipstick

    This is not a lipstick at all, it's a gloss. Not sure why they call it a lipstick, but who cares? For $1, this product is amazing. Not quite too pigmented, just a sheer bit of color. I have it in Pink Lemonade and Babylips. At first, the smell was minty, but then it somehow smelled like shoes and then pickles..don't ask. However, I really would recommend this product.(:
