elf powder

This cost $3, I needed a new powder and this one was super cheap and I usually like elf makeup so I got it. I didn't really like this product the powder smells a little funny, and looks chalky on me. It also didn't last long, I used up the whole powder in a month. Usually powders last me a long time but this one had a little bit of product. I know $3 isn't much but I still expect it to be descent and I can't even say that about this.

wet n' wild eyeshdow

I got Petal Pusher and Comfort Zone palettes from wet n' wild on sale, I think they were buy one get the other 50% off. Each palette comes with 8 colors, which is a very good deal. I always hear a lot of good things about the eyeshadow, and never tried it before. These are now my favorite the colors are so pretty, and they last long. For the price you can't beat the quality,  I don't have expensive eyeshadow to compare it to. But with these I feel I don't need expensive eyeshadow, because they are pigmented, last a long time, and are beautiful colors. I can't wait to try more of there palettes.

maybelline dream matte powder

I used to use mac blot powder and its great and all but honestly it got to be too much money for a simple powder. I needed something similar but for less money. I have oily skin and need a powder that will help with that. I got this powder for a little under $7, there are not many color choices, which makes it hard to pick the right one. I got one that was kinda too light. Still I have been using it any way I just put some bronzer on. I like this powder a lot, it does have more color than the blot powder. Mac blot powder, doesn't really have much color. That was maybe the only difference I could see, because it works just the same if not better than the mac one. At 1/3 the price.

e.l.f eyeliner

I'm not the greatest at applying eyeliner, I have always had a hard time making a good line. I use pencil eyeliner, because liquid eyeliner is kind of hard for me to use. I picked this up for $1 and figured I would give it a try. I like it, it wasn't as hard to use as other ones I have tried. It lasted all day, but my only complaint is that it was shinny all day, it looked almost wet, I like matte eyeliners, so this was not what I was looking for.

fit me foundation

A couple of days ago I went to target and saw this foundation. I had heard many good things about it, and thought might as well see if it's any good. I have combo skin, and don't really have acne or anything, so I like really light foundations. This was great, I am really liking this. The coverage is light and just enough to even your skin. What I like most about this is how pretty the finish is, its not very dewy, but leaves a nice glowy effect to your face. My other foundations don't do this so this is great.

covergirl lashblast

I have very short lashes, and nothing I ever bought before this worked. Other mascaras made my lashes look the same only black, some even made them look worse. I never thought I would find something that worked for me. I love this so much, first of all the brush is amazing, very big and it gets right where you need it. It gives my short lashes the perfect volume, and enough length to make them look great. This product cost under $10, I got mine for about $7. I would pay even more for this if I had to, because it is that good

sonia kashuk brush

This brush says its a blush brush, but I never use it for that. Instead I like to use this for my foundation. It works great, and makes my foundation really blend nice. Before I used to use a flat paddle foundation brush I bought at target from the studio line, and I didn't really like that one. This one is the perfect size and is not flimsy, it is perfect. I stipple my foundation all over my face and blend in circular motions, and buff the foundation onto my skin. I am very glad I bought this brush it was $14.99 and that is a great deal!

My new favortie bronzer

I got this bronzer like a month ago and love it! I had always used NYC sunny,but target was out of stock. So I just ended up getting this one, and I am happy I did, I got the matte version, because there are three kinds of bronzers for rimmel. I wasn't really sure which one to get because I do like shimmer,but I figure matte was the way to go since winter was coming. I like to think that shimmer is more of a summer thing/trend.  It is very natural looking and less orange than NYC sunny. This is now my new favorite bronzer, now that summer is over I am going to loose my tan :/ so this will come in handy during fall winter to give me a nice fake tan.

ELF palette

I got the elf 100 a while ago and love it! There are so many colors to choose from! I think this was $10 which is a great deal! The coastal scents 88 palettes cost almost $20, so this is half the price, for even more eyeshadow. Some of the colors are more pigmented than others. Still this is a great buy, you get a lot of variety. Great for making everyday looks, or looks to go out. I always use this and love it, my only complaint is its size. Since it is so big and bulky you can't really travel with it. Sill I love this check it out if you get a chance.

Review on Avon ideal flawless foundation

This foundation cost $11 regular price,but you can get it on sale usually buy one get one 50% off. Which you can mix and match with other foundations. This foundation works well, it is not heavy feeling, and covers most of my blemishes. I highly recommend grabbing a brochure or shopping online for this foundation. I used to use Healthy Makeup foundation by Avon but they will no longer be selling it, so I wanted to try something new. I think it is a great deal, and you can always return it if you do not like it.  In recent years Avon has really stepped up their game when it comes to foundation
