So I was using this for about a month, if not more. At first, it was good, a normal moisturizer, and worked pretty well. However, the longer I used it, I realized I was having more and more little breakouts on my face, little bumps all over my forehead, cheeks, chin. Plus, I started to get theses AWFUL dry patches on the ends of my lips that wouldn't go away, no matter if I exfoliated or how often I applied and reapplied lip balm (I even used the good stuff - Aquaphor). Turns out, the third ingredient in this moisturizer is sesame oil. Totally pore clogging! I've thrown this out and switched to a different moisturizer, and I'm glad to say the dry patches went away THE DAY AFTER I stopped using this product, but I'm still working on getting rid of all the breakouts. Wouldn't recommend this if you're even a teeny bit acne prone.

This product is so cool! I have really dry heels and SUPER dry ankles, and after I used this, my feet are super soft. I was a little concerned that the effects would go away after a few days, but it seems like the soak brought my skin back to step one and as long as I've been lotioning regularly with my normal body lotion, my feet have so far stayed perfect and soft, which is awesome for summer time!
Great lipbalm for on-the-go hydration. I like to use matte lipsticks, so on the days I don't I use a lot of lipbalm to keep my lips moist and to help them heal after the dry previous days. It isn't a great night-time lipbalm, as it's very light, but for when you're out and you want just a little something-something to give your lips a little bit of a sparkly pop, and keep them soft, this is perfect.
Awesome basecoat! It goes on super smooth ad dries really fast. By the time I finished painting both hands, the first hand is already dried. Color goes over it really easily, and doesn't dry slower because of the base coat. It lasts many days without chipping. For the super cheap price, this is absolutely my favorite base coat.
Grey is one of nail polish staples, and I'm very particular about it, as I use it regularly. I like mine to dry fast and be very pigmented, so I use less coats. I have this polish in shade 53 Rock My World, which is a lovely slate grey. It's completely opaque in two coats, but the first coat goes on very patchy. It doesn't take long at all to dry, especially considering it's at 2$ bottle of polish. The brush on these is awesome, wide and curved at the end, so that it covers your nails in only one or two swipes, and gets really up to the cuticle without getting polish everywhere (I really hate cleaning up my fingers after painting my nails lol). It lasts a decent amount of time with two coats, considering I never use a top/base coat whoops. Also, it's very shiny. That's nice.
Man, this eyeliner is a disappointed. I love ELF's Intense Ink eyeliner, but I've only used the big, thick one. Wanting an easier to use, slimmer felt pen with (what I'd hoped would be) an equally amazing liquid liner, I purchased this one. Well, the tip isn't hard enough, it's soft so it's not good to make that sharp wing. But whatever, I snipped off the tip diagonally a little bit, and now it's perfect. However, the ink runs out on the felt tip pretty fast. This, once again, isn't too much of a problem. Store your pen upside down, and when it inevitably runs out halfway through your wings, you cap it and shake it vigorously. What is a problem for me, that wasn't with the Intense Ink pen, is that it totally wears away by the end of the day, and transfers if you get sweaty or if your eyelids get a little oily (I live in Florida, so this is quite the issue for me, constantly), even if you put a translucent power on top. If you top it with a black eyeshadow, just over the liner, it'll stay pretty well throughout the day. But it's just a lot of work. For the price though, it's worth it, in my opinion. I just wish it were more like the Intense Ink eyeliner.
The formula on this mascara is awesome, really lengthens your lashes and doesn't clump. However, I hate this brush, and have switched the top with a Wet n Wild mascara brush... looks super wonky but it totally works. It's not great on volume, even with the other brush, but if you use an eyelash curler, your eyelashes will end up looking very long and curled, and will stay like that all day. The formula doesn't budge all day, but comes off easily in water. Takes a bit longer than other mascaras to dry, like 10 seconds.
So I picked this up at my local Dollar Tree, because I'd been needing a black nail polish with a thin brush for detailing. I'd seen the Sally Hansen ones at Walgreens for a few dollars more, but I decided to spend a dollar on this one just to try it out. IT IS SO GOOD. Unbelievable quality, the polish is super pigmented and dries fast, and goes on really thin and easily. Sometimes, I use a clean brush and paint my nails with this polish because it is the cheapest one-coat black nail polishes I have ever found. Would highly recommend!
I didn't like the taste of this toothpaste, it was kind of plasticky and not particularly minty. Didn't leave my breath feeling fresh for very long, but my mouth was a little less sensitive to cold water after my first use. All in all, doesn't really compare to other sensitivity toothpastes, will not purchase again.
