  • Softlips Lip Protectant/Sunscreen SPF 20

    I absolutely loved the lip balm from ChapStick because it had this minty tingling feeling after applying, but I never really like the actual formula itself because it seemed a bit greasy to me. When I first discovered this product I was really surprised at how well the formula is and I absolutely loved the fact that the tube is smaller. This formula is a bit drier than the ChapStick one which for me is a big plus as I hate having the feeling of greasy lips. I love the scents they make and at how many different ones they have. My only disappointment is that my local drugstores only sell a couple of their flavors.

  • Softlips Tinted Lip Balm SPF 15

    Softlips Tinted Lip Balm SPF 15

    Best lip balm ever!

    I got this lip balm when I was out camping with my family and got such a bad sunburn that even my lips had an awful sensation to them. I saw this product at a local Walmart and being desperate went ahead and bought it even though I had a ton of other lip products with me at our cabin. After applying the lip balm my lips felt so much cooler and smoother. I no longer felt that burning feeling, such soothing and sort of relaxed lips. I also completely fell in love with the color. I have the one in pearl which gives this beautiful whitish silvery shine to the lips, which I absolutely love. I really want to get all the other tinted ones but I cannot find them anywhere except online. As soon as I find them I will be bying all the colors and most likely two of each because I love them that much. Totally recommend!

  • Milani Liquif'eye Metallic Eye Liner Pencil

    I absolutely love this eyeliner! When I swatch it on my hands it reminds me of a brand new sharpie. It is super pigmented (at least the one I have which is in 01 Black). The pencil glides on very smooth and creamy and it really does feel like a liquid liner because it does not tug at the eyes at all. It is super easy to use and if you make a mistake, it easily wipes off within 30 seconds or so. The color stays on all day, and even night without any smudging. The only thing I do not really like is that because of the creamy formula, the pencil dulls quite fast and needs to be sharpened often when I am going for a thin liner look. Other wise, when I want a smoky or just a fatter line, it works perfectly. I have been wanting to go back and by a backup as well as the rest of the colors, but I am sort of holding back because they are around $9 each, but it is so worth the money. I definitely will repurchase this product again.

  • The Body Shop Camomile Gentle Eye Make-Up Remover

    I got this makeup remover as a gift from one of my cousins because I did not use one at the time. I would always rub at my eyes with soap and water which just got them really irritated and red, especially when I tried taking off eye shadow (it always stuck to my lids like glue or something). So when I first tried out the product, I was amazed. With one swipe all of my eye shadow was off. The only thing I had to sort of redo was to take a q-tip and take of the eyeliner that was sort of in between my lashes. Other than that, it took off my mascara along with the shadow and made things so much faster and easier. The only downfall for me is that the first time I used the product, I got some in my eyes and it burned for a while. Now every time I use this makeup remover I make sure to close my eyes shut and afterwards I rinse my face with water, just in case some of it decides to get in. I highly recommend this product. It is definitely worth trying, especially since they have a mini of this product for around $4.

  • Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Color

    I saw this product a long time ago but never paid attention to it. I really did not think it is worth the money so I never tried it out. Then a few weeks back I decided to give it a try. I picked out the color Don't Blink Pink in number 966. I was really surprised at how pigmented the color is. I really only needed one swipe on my lips and I could totally see the color. The color itself is very matte so there is no shine whatsoever. It lasted a very long time. I put it on at around ten in the morning and four or five hours later it was still visible. It did soften out into more of a stain which I actually like. I love the packaging because it does not look cheap and flimsy. It is quite sturdy and tights shut. Overall I love this product and really want to get some more shades. Love it!

  • CoverGirl Make-Up Masters Lash Curler

    I got this product a little while ago and at first I loved it. I love the way it is shaped and that it is not too big and bulky, and is very easy to carry around in a purse. I like how the handles are covered with the rubber material making it look so much better and feel nice and soft and warm. The actual curler works really well. It does its job of curling the lashes. The only downfall for me is that the rubber part in the curler where I put in my lashes, does not reach the very tips. So when I curl my lashes, the last few corner lashes do not get curled and stick out at an awkward angle. I have to keep moving the rubber thing from one side to the other every time I curl my lashes. This did not bug me for a while but now it is getting annoying. My cousin used this curler when she came over but it did not seem to have the same problem on her. I guess that I just have longer eyes and so this does not really work for me. Other than that, I do recommend this product for those who have small eyes and are looking for a cheaper, drugstore eyelash curler. Those who have longer eyes, or almond shaped eyes, might want to look for a product that has the rubber part of the curler covering the whole length of the curler.

  • New York Color Smooth Skin Perfecting Primer

    Overall, this product is works quite well. It isn't super amazing although it does do its job. With this primer, you need to be careful by not putting on too much product or else it would turn your face into a disco ball. The formula for some reason has shimmer in it (or at least in the one that I purchase, number 684). The shimmer will show through if too much product is applied. I use about a pea sized over my entire face and neck. It smooths out the skin really well, leaving it soft and less bumpy, also leaving a hint of shimmer which is easily covered by foundation, unless it is a sheer cover. The primer does make the foundation last longer, although I do get shiny in the summer with, or without, it on. Other than that, it is a pretty good product. Next time, I would not purchase the shimmery primer, I would go for a clear one instead.

  • Wet n Wild Dual Pencil Sharpener

    This sharpener is one of the first I ever owned. It is so amazing that I did not need to purchase a different sharpener. I am so happy with this one. The blades are nice and sharp so they easily sharpen any kind of pencil. Even the soft and creamy eyeliners I have easily glide through without breaking or chipping off. Same thing for the hard pencils - they easily are sharpened without any breaking off and the actual color tips are nice and smooth without any ridges or tough edges, so you will not scratch your eyes or lips after sharpening your pencils. It is good for sharpening pencils to a very sharp tip and also to a more rounded one. Also, the bigger hole in the sharpener fits a lot of those other jumbo pencils such as eyeliners, eyeshadow sticks, and lipliners. Finally, the price is amazing and definitely something anyone can afford. Great product!

  • Wet n Wild Wild Shine Nail Color

    I absolutely love this product! The price is amazing and there are tons of colors to choose from. The product itself lasted such a long time on me. I wash the dishes by hand at home and do the cleaning without latex gloves so they get a bit of wear and tear, but the color still lasted me a FULL week. I was truly amazed. I have yet to find a different nail polish that lasts that long. There was this one time when I left it on my toe nails to see how long it will last and I have to say I lost count of the weeks. It seriously lasted over a month. Now that is amazing! The pigmentation is pretty good, although it does show clear sometimes. I am not into doing two coats of polish so I usually put on a bit of a thicker coat to actually get the color I want, although two coats would work as well, or maybe even better because they will dry faster. I would totally recommend this product to everyone.

  • Maybelline New York Great Lash Washable Mascara

    Maybelline New York Great Lash Washable Mascara

    Affordable, great for adding length

    I was really excited to purchase this product after reading so many reviews on how great this product is. The price is definitely great, varying from $4-7, depending on where you purchase. The wand in this mascara sort-of swirls around in a uniform line, not like a bunch of bristles sticking out randomly. The pigmentation is really good, the black is quite dark so I imagine that the blackest black color is going to be very dark. The formula did not clump on me. I could easily do a couple coats of mascara. The formula is very lengthening, which for many people is a good thing. I myself have long but thin lashes, so this made them seem a bit spidery. I was hoping for more volume, which I really did not get from this mascara. That for me was the biggest downfall, since they promised a thickening result. I would recommend this for people looking for a lengthening mascara, but I would not recommend this for volume.
