My favorite gloss
I have this exact one and I really like it. I've had it for a few years now but use it a lot. You get a lot for the price you pay (usually $7 or so). I love the color, smell, and texture. It's very thick so it's kind of hard to apply, but it's not watery so it lasts for a long time. Would purchase again:) this tube lasts forever though so I don't think I'll be running out anytime soon. I've had this for at least three years now and it still works as well as the day I got it! I'm not even half way done with it, a little goes a long way!

This has amazing pigmentation, almost comparable to a liquid lipstick. I bought this in hooked on pink which is actually a nice deep muted berry color. Since it's so pigmented, I don't put it all over my lips. Instead I put a tiny bit on then blend it out. There is not much shine considering it's a lipglosses but it looks very flattering. It is not sticky whatsoever and stays on for quite a long time. Not all day and won't last through meals of course, but lasts longer than most lipglosses. I like the sleek packaging but there is no labeling on it except for that microscopic sticker on the end so be sure to remember what the name of it is! Oh and The consistency of this is very thick, not watery at all.

I bought this in Champagne. It's an off white shimmery color perfect for highlighting your inner corner and your brow bone. It has a nice amount of shimmer in it, nothing too crazy. This did crease in my inner corner though. I had a primer on, a base, and even a setting spray. The case is kinda hard to open though, at least it's not cheapy. Overall, I love the color as a highlight because it goes well with everything so I would probably purchase this again.

This is matte, and is very light even on my pale skin. It is buildable though and can even be dusted all over to give a nice even tan, without the orange! This does not look orange at all, I was very impressed. Normally, I'm not a fan of NYC but I actually really like this! Definitely try it out if you're looking for a cheap bronzer under $3 at Target!

Hated at first, now I pick it up a lot!
I really wanted to try this as an alternative to pencil eyeliner so I bought it for a dollar. I am applying it correctly (not using the tip) as one reviewer explained, but it's really hard to apply on my left eye (I'm right handed) because of the angle. Maybe I need more practice with this type of eyeliner, but it looks really nice on my right eye. The line is clean and it's a good color (coffee) not too dark nor too light. It doesn't smudge or anything. I wouldn't recommend this though, I'd rather put up with pencil eyeliner because it's easier to apply. This felt tip feels really hard on my eyelid and it feels like I'm scratching it on. -------UPDATE-------- I was about to throw this away when I opened it back up again and I was finally able to use it! At first I really didn't like this. The cap was hard to take off, the felt tip was fraying at the tips, and the product was all dried out! Some miracle must have happened because I tried it again last week after months of it sitting in my drawer, and now it works just fine! I got use to dealing with the cap, the felt tip is still frayed but hey, it still works. I was shocked though that the product itself is not dried out! oh my gosh, i don't know what happened, I ran the tip under warm water and let it dry upside down a couple of months ago, and now it works just fine! Hm.

Hey, these actually work!
The sheets could be a little bigger, but they get the job done. They absorb the oil and it's helpful because you can see how much oil you've picked up when you hold it up to the light. They haven't ripped on me yet, but it's because I only pat it on my face instead of dragging it. You won't find a better deal on oil blotting sheets. If you want to dish out more money for Clean

I did not expect to like this, nor do anything noticeable for my dry/damaged hair, but boy was I wrong. I bought a huge bottle of this with a pump from Costco along with the matching conditioner because I had a coupon. I have been using this for a couple of months now and since then, the tips of my hair no longer look as fried as they did and I don't get split ends as frequently as I did before. To clarify, this does NOT mend split ends so don't be fooled by the phrase "damage therapy". However, it does help by preventing more new split ends. I used to have to trim my hair every month almost because I had so many split ends, but now I don't. It is very helpful if you are trying to grow your hair out. This will not prevent all split ends, of course, but it does keep them looking healthy. This makes my hair more manageable and less frizzy as another reviewer, kenya, mentioned. This has a light smell, reminds me of Pantene's scent in a way. You get tons of product for the price and the pump (if you get that version) is very convenient. It lasts forever and the product washes out nicely so it doesn't weigh your hair down. I definitely recommend this!

A 10! (rare)
I love this brush so much! It's the only face brush I really need. I use it to apply liquid foundation because I don't have a stippling brush, and the results were remarkable! Foundations that alway looked cakey no matter what else I tried (wet sponge, fingers, paddle brush, etc.). It works for this because it's a very dense brush. The synthetic bristles feel like a cloud against your skin. After foundation, I can apply my ELF Complexion perfection powder (another 10) with this brush and it works beautifully as well. I can even use it with blush/bronzer. This brush is so multifunctional and is great for travel. This is now the only face brush I use, and it has four uses for only $3! What a steal! This is a MUST have if you plan on investing in ELF studio brushes (the essential ones are horrible in comparison. This is great for beginners, it keeps it simple and easy to use, and it's inexpensive too! (But not cheap quality.) if you're only going to buy one ELF brush, this is it!

This has decent moisturizing capabilities. I've used EOS, Burt's Bees, SoftLips, Nivea, etc. and this feels like a cross between EOS and SoftLips when applied. The formula is not as solid as EOS but not as soft as softlips although it does feel more like softlips. I bought this in cherry me and it is a lot more pigmented than I thought. It gives a nice wash of red without being overpowering. This is just what I was looking for! I didn't want something as bold as a lipstick but I didn't want to have to wear a gloss all the time either. It's very buildable so you only need to swipe it on once for some color. If you're more interested in purchasing a balm, this may not be for you if you want to layer it on without having bold lips. Decent lasting power. Smells amazing doesn't have a bad taste if you accidentally get some in your mouth. Priced just right, under $5. Overall, I would purchase this again and recommend it to friends :)
