Review Cover Fx Liquid Foundation

Hi again everyone-
So this is my review of the Cover Fx Liquid Foundation. I was so excited to try this and I was very disappointed that it did not work on my combination/oily skin. However, I think this would be amazing on Normal/dry skin!

For my combo/oily skin I will give this foundation a 2 out of 5! :o(

I hope it works better for some of you!

Makeup/Vanity Collection and Organization


Hi again everyone-
So this is probably one of my most requested videos. I do have an older vanity video from last january, but some things have changed, so I decided to post a new one. I am by no means trying to show off- I am just posting how I organize things and my methods for keeping my makeup accessible.
I have attached some pictures here as well to maybe give you a better look. Let me know if you have any questions!

Review Trish Sawyer Eye Bright


Hi again everyone-
So this is my review on the Trish Sawyer Eye Bright. I had heard about it from a YTer that wanted me to do a review, so I picked it up after reading mixed reviews on Sephora's website. So after getting it I was not sure what to think of it since it was a green tinted cream. So I gave it a try and again and again. It worked fine for not creasing etc, but I did not think it worked to make me look more awake or to help my dark circles go away! So I would give this product a 3 out of 10! I did return it and used the credit I am sure for another product to review although I dont remember what! :oP


Let me know if you have any questions!

Review Le 2 De Guerlain Mascara


hi again everyone!

So this is my review on a high end mascara- I know can you believe it! :oP i found out about this mascara through my contest I has on my YouTube channel a while back. It is a really great high end mascara. I would give it a 9 out of 10!

I think it is a great mascara- it really does both- lengthen and volumize your lashes. I probably wont repurchase only because I have so many mascara's and I change them so often so I don't get an infection since i wear contacts.

Attached below is the video where I review the product.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Review MAC Lip Prep and Prime


Hi again everyone-

So this is my review for the MAC Lip Prep and Prime. I will say that overall I thought it was ok, but I will not repurchase. I did find a product that I like as much if not more after I taped this reviews. I really like the Benefit Define and Deline! I would say it works much better at preventing feathering! Overall I would give this product a 4 out of 10!
