Beauty Product Reviews

Good value if you're willing to do some work.

I've really liked this palette. I picked it up a few weeks ago, and I've used it a lot. I also got the neutral version as well. Some of the colors aren't very pigmented, that's true. But I have found that they are great to use as liners with a wet eyeliner brush. Nice for a little bottom lash line color, too, if you want something a little different.

Frequently reached for ...

I love the color and taste of this gloss. It's very pretty and light, and I really like how it looks on me and it's great for layering over other lipsticks or balms. But, I feel like the formula is just a little thin, and I'm constantly reapplying. However, I have replaced this tube more than once.

Nice concept, awful smell.

I have this Gloss Balm in the color Thistle, which is a very pretty light pink. I love the color and it is moisturizing. But as another reviewer said (and she was spot on) it smells a lot like Bonne Bell Lipsmackers, and not in a good way. It's like that "play" makeup scent and it's hard to get past. The one thing I have done is to layer it up. I like the color and the moisture, so to cover the scent and enhance it further, I wear Covergirl Wetslicks Fruit Spritzers gloss in Berry Splash over it. But, as another reviewer said, I probably won't buy this product again unless the formula is changed to one with a better smell.

Great mascara that really brightens your eyes!

I've been using Cover Girl Exact Eyelights Mascara for about a year now and I love it. I have many mascaras that I like, but this is still one of my most-reached-for. I feel like it's very light and it does brighten not only the color of my eyes, but the whites of my eyes. I really love it!

Also great for a subtle nude colored eye.

I use this with the shade "Nude" sometimes, just on the crease and it's incredibly pretty. Very nice and natural without being too gaudy or looking dirty, which some brown shadows can do.

Great color for a matte/nude look!

I just picked this shade up at Ulta last week and I am in love with it. It's a beautiful shade for a nude look (appropriate, since that's the name of the shadow). It's a highly pigmented color, and I like that it looks clean and not just like the color of my eyelid to begin with.

In general, I love MAC eyeshadows. I can't always afford them because I'm a college student, but I love how long they last and the quality of the product. One of my favorite shades, "Turquatic" isn't listed here but it's a LOT like "Aquadisiac."
