Tutorial: Drugstore Makeup

Hey everyone! Today, I posted a drugstore makeup tutorial on my YouTube channel. If you missed anything I used, I will fill you in right now! I hope this helps you. -

1. First, I applied the Dream Mousse Concealer in Light 4-5 with my finger under the eyes. Then I applied the same concealer on all the blemishes with the SS224. Remember to use a swirling motion!
2. Next I used foundation. The foundation I used was the Dream Smooth Mousse Foundation in 150 Classic Ivory. This was $10, and has medium coverage! I used the sponge applicator that came with the foundation, but I would recommend a SS190. I also primed Gabby's lids with this foundation.
3. After foundation, I put on some blush. I used the Maybelline Dream Mousse in Soft Plum 40. I applied it with the SS187 because the stippling brush really swirls the product into the apple's of the cheeks perfectly. The blush was about $8.
4. The last step for the face was to apply powder! I used the Maybelline Mineral Power Powder with the SS150. This powder will just help set your makeup.

5. For the eyes, I used the Revlon Khaki Suede bases. I used the first, tan color in the quad, and applied it evenly to both lids.
6. I used the Maybelline Bronze Glitz Trio for eyeshadow. I really recommend this trio because it has great pigmentation. I used the SS252 to apply the tan, bottom color.
7. Then I took the SS217. and applied the top, bronze color into the crease.
8.Next, I used the Mayeblline Unstoppable eyeliner.
9. Lastly, I used the Covergirl Lastblast Fusion mascara.

10. For lips, I first put on some Chapstick!
11. Then I used the Maybelline lip stick in Pink Quartz; 115.
12. For some shine, I used the Maybelline Shinylicious in Hit or Miss!

Here is the finished look!

If you want to know prices of anything, you can go to and type the product in the search bar! I don't remember the prices of everything :)

Have a nice day! xoxo

Fall Shoe Trends

Hello loves! Since fall is approaching, I decided to do a blog post all about shoes for the season! Fall is my favorite season for fashion because you can pull off so much! All of the colors are deep and chic, so the fashion is insanely gorgeous. There are so many different types of shoes for fall as well! You can rock boots, heels, moccasins, and so much more! In this post, I will show you my favorites. Let's start!

Many of you probably noticed how popular the color purple was last season! Fortunately for all of my purple lovers, we will be seeing a lot more of it this year as well! This really excites me because plum shoes are fantastic! Here are a few examples of fun, plum shoes.

These suede boots are from Naturalizer Hayward. Aren't they cute?

I know most of you aren't UGG fans, but I don't mind them! I think these plum puppies are adorable. The buttons and weaving make them look awesome.

BOOTS. BOOTS. BOOTS. I love them so much. Let's talk about some boot trends that you are going to see on the streets this year. Ankle boots and over the knee boots are going to be very popular for fall! Anything suede or leather is great. I love boots with the motorcycle feel because they are very spunky! Also, boots with some embellishments like zippers are going to be very popular! Believe it or not, designers have been creating thigh boots or over the knee boots for this year. I am not confident enough to walk around in boots like that, but for any of you that are... Good luck!

Since dark reds, navys, and blacks are in style , the heels this season are hotter than ever. This year, classic stilettos are kicking the curb, and funky heels are stepping in. Try something with studs or fringe; both are very in this year. I also love the curved heel style.The slight curve in structure gives the classic heel a twist! Here are some awesome heels.

Let's wrap up this post talking about moccasins. I am a huge fan of this style of shoe because I love to feel comfy!! You can try classic moccasins like the ones in the first picture below or you can show of in ones with embellishments. I think moccasins are very pretty when they have fringe or embellishment because they feel more earthy that way! To me, moccasins are the perfect everyday shoes!

I hope you enjoyed this post all about my favorite things... SHOES!

So, if you don't know, I am by no means a runner! For some reason; however, I woke up today with the sudden urge to go for a run. As I was getting in my runner clothing I noticed I couldn't find my sneakers. When someone can't find their sneakers, you know how unathletic they are :) Anyway, after about 10 minutes of searching Sammy and I hit the road. Since we left late, around 11 am, it was pretty hot and muggy.

I am the type of person that cramps up really easily, which is why I never run. It doesn't matter how slow I jog, after five minutes I automatically get a cramp. I think the cramps are due to my breathing patterns. I sound so serious right now, but I really do think it is because I don't breathe properly when I run! I clearly have to work on that. Sure enough after a few minutes on the road I got a cramp. So, Sammy and I decided to play the jog-walk game. Basically you jog up until a stop sign, and then you walk to the next one. It helps get rid of cramps very well because the walking gives you a chance to breathe.

Playing the jog-walk game was not bad until I started itching. Since it was so muggy, my legs started to itch! I don't know if it was a bug bite or just the weather, but oh my goodness I was scratching. Trying to jog and scratch at the same time is really difficult. So, after 2 circles around my neighborhood Sam and I went home.

For me, it was a pretty successful endeavor. My legs feel a bit like jello, which I think is a good thing :) I hope this post didn't bore you too much! Are any of you bad runners as well? Tell me in the comments.

Photo Booth Fun!

Here are some pictures my sisters and I took last night when we were bored! Gabby is in the first 3 and Sammy is in all of them :) I hope you guys like this small post.

Sun Laboratories Sunless Tanner

Hey everyone! Today's post is going to be an extended review of Sun Labs tanning set. I really enjoyed having the chance to review the products, and I want to make sure I express how much I loved them!

Basically, the set I was sent contained three items: exfoliator, tanning lotion, and moisturizer. Together, these products help make your fake tan look as natural as possible. The exfoliator is so important because it will create an even surface for the tanner to go smoothly onto.

Once you have exfoliated, you can apply the self tanner. It may look dark and scary at first, but once rubbed nicely into your skin, this product will blow your mind! First I applied to my arms, and then just went up my body until I got to my face. Don't worry about your hands getting streaky because as long as you wash your hands after each section you won't look like an orange!

Since the tanner is slightly tinted, it was easy to realize if I missed a spot as I applied it. That is the best thing about the tanner: Being able to spot a mistake before it is too late! As long as your fix any spots you missed, your tan won't look streaky.

After you tan, you can go to sleep! When you wake up the next morning, you can use the maintainer to help lengthen the tan.

This set worked wonders for me, so I hope you click the links below to find out for yourself.

Alot of shoppers today look for a company that will provide them with up to date fashion at affordable prices, and Yuna's Closet does just that.

Lohmans Haul

Hey everyone! Today I have a small Lohmans haul for you. Lohmans is a store, like TJ-Max, that sells name brand clothing for half the price. I picked up three things that I want to show you guys!

1. DKNY Shirt

This shirt is awesome! I love the cinching at the bottom, and it fits me perfectly. I like that this can be a winter or summer shirt.

2. Free People Tunic

Isn't this adorable? The detailing on the tunic is fabulous. When I wear it, I feel like such a princess. Wow, I love it!

3. Black Bandeau

This was only $6, so I wanted to pick it up! I can wear this black bandeau under almost anything that I want, and since it is padded I couldn't resist.

I hope you enjoyed my small haul.

Saturday, July 24, 2010


Hello loves! Today I am going to talk all about bandeaus. If you don't know what these amazing inventions are then I will teach you all about them.

Bandeaus basically serve as undershirts or camis, but are only about half the material! They cover your goodies, so that you can just throw one on when you wear a revealing shirt. They cover up everything without looking boring! The bandeaus come in so many different patterns and colors. I have two from Hollister, and they are lacy!

Here is a picture of the two I have:

Aren't they adorable? I got mine on sale for only $3!

Another advantage of bandeaus is the fact that you don't need to wear a bra with them! Since most of them are padded, you can avoid the trouble of a strapless bra. I hate wearing strapless bras because I always feel like I am gonna fall right out of them, but with bandeaus you can eliminate the bra and the cami with just one piece of fabric! Just for that simple reason the bandeaus are worth it!

Where Can I Buy Them?

There are a few places I know of that sell them, but I am sure you can find them almost anywhere! If you want cheap ones then you can go to Aeropostale. The ones they sell there are not padded, so they are harder to pull of because you need a bra under them. I think if the bandeau isn't padded then it is pointless because the whole point of them is to not wear a bra! But, at Aeropostale they are $2. The next place you can buy them is Hollister. They will probably still be selling them on sale for $3, so go get your hands on a few before they are all sold out! I love the two I have from there, and they are perfectly padded. Lastly, I know they sell really nice ones at Victorias Secret. These are a bit more expensive, but they are padded, so they are well worth it! I think they are 2 for $20.

I hope you guys enjoyed this! Please comment below and then me what you think of the new bandeau trend.

Renovating Room: Day 2

Today has been a tiring, but rewarding day! One of my best friends, Kate, came over at around 1 to help me paint my entire room. So, my sisters and I, along with Kate, began to paint my whole room. It took so long, but I think it turned out great. The color is fabulous. It is like a dark lavender. Here are a few pictures of us painting.

Then after the paint was all dry, I took all the tape of the walls. This didn't take too long, but it was just annoying! Once the tape was off, the fun stuff started :) We moved everything back into my room and rearranged the whole place. I love the way my room is setup; I have so much more room.

The only thing left to do is hang stuff on the walls. That will be done this Tuesday, so the room tour will be up on Wednesday like I promised! Talk to you all then.

Renovating Room: Day 1

Today is Sunday the 18th, and I am currently prepping my room for painting. This morning my dad and I cleared most of the stuff out of my room, or into the center of my room, so we had room to paint. Moving everything might seem like a small job, but boy it was not! I was breaking a sweat; nevertheless, we got the job done in about an hour. After we moved everything, we began to spackle the walls. Spackling is filling in any holes or imperfections in the wall! Basically just smoothing the wall.

When that was finished, we put on a base coat to prepare for painting. This didn't take too long, but putting up all the tape did! Tape is so annoying; unfortunately, it is pretty crucial :(

That is pretty much all we did today. Tomorrow my two best friends are coming over to help me paint. We are going to take lots of pictures for you! Talk to you then.

Room Update

Hey everyone!

I decided to do a small blog post about my room that I will be redecorating, so you will be able to know when my room tour will be up. I actually just bought the paint yesterday, which was very exciting. It is not the exact color I wanted, but I think it will still look nice. I am going to paint every wall this deep lilac color. I think it will look very nice!

Everyone knows that before one starts painting he or she needs to prep the room first. What I mean by prep is putting on a base, fixing any imperfections on the walls, and taping the creases. This prepping process will begin on Thursday the 15th and end Thursday the 16th.

The next step is painting. My two best friends and I are actually going to be doing ALL the painting. We think it will be really fun! How hard could it be? :) Anyway, the painting will start and end on Monday the 19th. From that point on I will need to re-organize all of my things, and put everything back in my room. I think I will need until that Friday to have everything back in order; therefore, I will probably have the room tour up the last week of July.

I hope you eager ladies and gents can wait that long :)

Toy Story 3

WOW! This movie can only be explained in one word: incredible.


If you have seen the latest Toy Story movie then you have to agree with me. It was the perfect ending to an amazing journey. I never thought I would like the third installment of this movie more than the first two, but boy was I proven wrong. Thank goodness I had Kleenex in my bag! I did not think the waterworks were going to come, but when the movie was finishing up I found myself reaching for the tissues more than once. Don't worry, I will not give anything away! I don't want to ruin the movie for all of you, but let me just say you will not be disappointed if you see this!

My favorite toy in this movie and all the movies is by far Woody! I know that Woody is the generic answer, but I have a few reasons why I love him! First of all, he is a leader. You have to admire his courage and loyalty. Yes, I am praising a fictional character, but he deserves the admiration. Woody is the perfect example of a best friend. He never lets you down.

There was a lot of adventure in this movie as well! Let me just say these toys are unstoppable. They come up with brilliant plans and execute everyone of them perfectly. It is just so impressive. Every time they escape a bad situation I am astonished. The writers must be geniuses!

Alright, that is the end of my rant about Toy Story 3. If you haven't seen it yet then please get your behinds into a movie seat ASAP, and enjoy this movie which you will NEVER forget.

Packing Tips and Tricks!

Hello everyone. This is just a continuation of my Spain packing video. I am going to tell you some more tips and get a little more in depth about what I am packing.

Carry On:

As you know I am bringing two carry on bags. I am bringing one handbag and then my backpack! The reason I am bringing two bags instead of just one is because I want my electronics and passport separated from everything else. The reason for the separation is because I want to be able to easily access my important papers and iPod rather than dig through my whole bag!

Here are some of the TSA rules for carry on items!
1. Nothing sharp (Scissors, knives) - I brought scissors on a plane once to do arts and crafts and they were taken from me!!!:(
2. Everything liquid or gel must be under 3.0 fl oz (You can't even have creams or liquidy foods like jam)
3. All the items under 3.0 fl oz you bring must be put in a 1 quart plastic bag!
4. Only 1 quart size bag is allowed per person
* Just remember 3-1-1: 3 fl oz items - All in one quart plastic bag - One bag per person.
5. You can only bring water that has been purchased in the airport near your gate. If can not be a bottle that was taken in the airport.

So, here is a list of everything I am going to put in my backpack:

Chapstick (Under 3 fl oz.) - I want soft lips!
Cards - You can never go wrong with a game of rummy :)
Paper or a Notebook - This is solely for doodling on the plane!
Pencils or Pens - Obviously so you can draw and write.
Small JACKET - I strongly recommend bringing some sort of jacket on the plane because it can be VERY chilly on planes. You may not use it, but at least it is there in case.
Gum- If you are like me, then you hate when your ears pop! Gum helps me sooo much as the plane is landing.
Sunglasses These can be used when you land at your destination!
Glasses Case - If you are going on an over night trip like I am wearing your contacts may not be a good idea. Since I will try to sleep on the plane, having a safe place to put my glasses is important. You don't want your glasses to fall on the floor of the plane of get smooshed.
Summer Reading - In my opinion, books are crucial when flying! Reading will take up so much time, not to mention help you get through your summer reading quickly.
Spanish Phrase Book - Obviously if you are flying to Florida this book will not be necessary, but having a Spanish phrase book will help me a lot when I land.
Tooth Paste and Tooth Brush - For when you land or when you are on the plane! It is always good to have fresh breath :)

*Here is the list of things I will have in my handbag:

Plane Information: Boarding Pass/ Electronic Ticket
ID ( Student id or license)
Camera Case
Camera Charger
iPod Charger

Now that I went through what I am bringing on the plane, I am going to talk about everything that I am packing in my suitcase!


I have one suitcase; it is actually pretty small, but I have some tips on how to fit everything you need inside! My tip is rolling. Some of you probably already roll your clothes when you travel, but if you don't then please try next time you are flying. Rolling will make your clothes drastically smaller, and save you so much room! In the video that will be up on Wednesday on my channel I will show you how I actually roll my clothes.

The next thing I am going to talk about is organizing my suit case. I use plastic gallon bags to section off my clothes in my suitcase. I make a bag for each outfit or, if everything can fit, a bag for 2 outfits. Then I just stack all the bags in my suit case. I did not put my pajamas in a bag because I didn't think they needed their own bag, but I did roll them! Some people will think that putting the clothes in plastic bags is a waste of time and resources, but I think it works really well! Another reason the bags are helpful, other than for organization, is that they will help keep your dirty clothes away from your clean clothes. When you are finished with an outfit you can just put it right back in the bag and zip it up!

Here are a list of the toiletries I am bringing:

1. Contact solution, case, and extra pair
2. Razor and a new blade
3. Shampoo
4. Conditioner
5. Deodorant
6. Body splash
7. Tooth paste and tooth brush
8. Liquid soap
9. Makeup remover
10. Hairspray
11. Shaving Cream
12. Sun screen
14. Tums
15. Blink eye drops
16. Mouth Wash
17. Q-tips
18. Clips

I will be wearing a very comfortable outfit on the plane! I like being able to relax on the plane, and not have to worry about being uncomfortable. So, my outfit will be Pink sweat-capris and a tee shirt! I am also wearing sneakers because I think they are so much easier than sandals or flip flops! They may seem like a hassle when you have to take them off at security, but they won't hurt your feet all day! You are going to be doing a lot of walking and the last thing you want is a blister. Another reason I like wearing sneakers on planes is because then you can take off your shoes and still have socks on!

Here is a list of the outfits I am bringing:

* I am wearing my black gladiator sandals with every outfit!

1. A blue halter dress with my button my blouse.
2. A pink high waisted skirt with a tight black v neck.
3. A floral skirt with a white v neck.
4. Romper with my blue blouse.
5. Jean capris with a floral cardigan and a coral tank.
6. Jean capris and my free people white shirt.
7. Jeggins under my blue tunic with a waist belt.
8. My funky pattern dress with a white tank top underneath.
9. My floral, denim skirt with a black v neck.

Then I am packing under shirts and spandex plus pajamas!

I am also bringing some clips and headbands to wear. I am even bringing jewelry, but nothing to fancy!

Here is a list of the makeup I am bringing:

1. Rimmel Fix and Perfect
2. Urban Decay Primer Potion
3. Maybelline Define a line Eye liner
4. Covergirl Lash Blast mascara
5. Maybelline Brow gel
6. NARS Laguna Bronzer
7. Revlon Eye lash curlers
8. Mulch e/s
9. All that Glitters e/s
10. Still Kitten e/s
11. MAC Well Dressed Blush
12. MAC Select Coverup Concealer
13. MSFN
14. Femme Fi e/s
15. Black track Fluide-line
16. SS 150
17. SS 217
18. SS 209
19. SS 152


- Try to keep your clothes the same tone, but if you can't then bring atleast one light jacket that will match EVERYTHING!
- Bring one pair of universal shoes. They need to be able to look good with any outfit you bring.
- If your clothes get wrinkly when you land then un-wrinkle them by hanging them in your bathroom as you shower. The steam should help!
- Bring lots of undershirts and underwear!
- Make sure you rip all the price tags off your clothes because some of the tags are too hard to get off without scissors! You wouldn't want to rip your stuff.
- Lay out your outfits before you pack them to make sure you have everything!
- Make check lists. They will help you not forget anything.
- Carry your toiletries in plastic bags incase they spill!

Have a great time on your trips this summer!

My Summer Wish List 1

Hello lovelies!

Since summer is around the corner, there are a few clothing items that I have recently seen and fell in love with. They are just some trends I saw and wanted to try out for myself. There are also a few makeup products on my wish list as well. Enough of the chit chat, here I go!

1. Woodlore Tie Hanger- You might be wondering, "Why in the world does she want that thing?" If I were you, I would be thinking the same thing, but I actually saw this in seventeen magazine this week and fell in love with it. Now, I will not be using this for ties, but in stead for necklaces. I have tons of long necklaces, and they always get tangled when I put them in a jewelry box. I want to hang all my necklaces from this tie hanger; therefore, they will no longer get tangled and stuck!
2. Colorful Blazer- I desperately want to buy on these puppies. I have a black blazer from H&M that I adore, but I want a bright one to throw on in the summer. Of course I will still wear my black one in the summer, but I think owning one with a pop of color would be really nice. Blazers are very sophisticated, and I love their polished look. If anyone knows where I can get an inexpensive colorful blazer please let me know! I need one ASAP :)

3. Button Up Fashion Shirt- I love the way these breezy shirts look. They can be casual or fancy. You can grab this shirt and wear it with shorts, or you could even put on a pair of leggings and a waist belt to make the look formal. Oh gosh I can't tell you how much I adore these shirt! Can you say comfy cute?

4. The Perfect Summer Dress- I have no summer dresses. It is becoming a big problem. I was never really a dress person, but this past year I have grown to love the femininity of them. They are so girly and fun! I need to pick one up for myself. I would prefer a floral one like the first one below.

5. Hot Tools Waver- I LOVE WAVY HAIR. I do know how to wave my hair without heat (sleeping in braids), but I think the waves with the waver are even more gorgeous. Wavy hair is so in right now, and some people have a difficult time getting the perfect look! One of these wavers would make the waves I want!

6. A Romper- Wow! I think rompers are fabulous. You have to be a little gutsy to wear them because unlike other fashion trends, rompers are unique. They are a little crazy and different, but I love the way they look. I am always looking for new, exciting fashion; and rompers certainly fit the bill.
7. Tinted Lip Conditioner- I have wanted to try this MAC product out for quite some time now. I am obsessed with chapsticks, and this product looks amazing.
That is all that is on my wishlist at the moment!! I might make a YouTube video about this, but I have to think about it. What do you think? Do you want to hear me say a little more about my wishlist on my channel? Let me know below!

Ins and Outs 1

Hey lovely ladies and gents. Today I am going to be doing my first ever "Ins and Outs." Basically, a post like this one is simply listing things I like right now and things I don't. I got this idea of AllthatGlitters21. She also has a blog and I thought her idea was wonderful. I hope she doesn't mind I am doing this too! Let's get right into this...


1. Lots of Jewelry- Lately I have been piling on jewelry. I just haven't thought one bracelet was enough. I like wearing big jewelry because I think it can make even the plainest outfit pop. Now don't get me wrong, I am not walking out of the house covered with bulky jewels, but I have been adding a few extra pieces to my outfits lately.

2. Guitars- I love the sweet sound of an acoustic guitar. I happen to have a guitar that I bought at a thrift shop for $35, but I have no idea how to play it. I need to get my butt to lessons so I can play something for ya'll!

3. Lost- I have never been more in love with a tv show. I wish I was exaggerating, but I am not. I am completely obsessed with LOST. (My computer background is a LOST cast photo... I think I need help.) Every Tuesday at 9 I turn on abc and watch it with puppy dog eyes. I am hooked. There is no helping my Lost love. Sadly, the series is ending in only four, short episodes. What am I supposed to do when it's over?

4. Going to bed before 11- Seeing the clock read 11 before I go to sleep is such a comfort to me. I have horrible sleeping habits, and unfortunately 11 is early for me. I love getting a full 8 hours of sleep and that is only possible if I slip into my bed before the hand on the clock hits 11....

5. American Eagle Shorts- I have never been a big American Eagle fan, but ever since they released their summer line, I can't help but buy their adorable shorts. I have two pairs from there and they fit me perfect. (Usually shorts never fit me right.) The best part about the shorts is that they were only $20 a pair. With a twenty dollar price tag, the shorts can't do you wrong!


1. School- Anyone else have a countdown to the end of this dreadful school year? I do. I need to have a countdown or I would be falling apart. I need to put on a bathing suit and jump into a refreshing pool; however, that beautiful picture in my mind can't happen until the school year ends... 32 days left. I don't think I can make it.

2. Girl Maintenance- I am soooooo sick of keeping up with being a girl. Why do us ladies have it so hard? I hate painting my nails every 6 days. I can't stand shaving every time I hop into the shower. I despise that time of the month. Men do not compare to women. END OF STORY!

That is all for my first ever "Ins and Outs." I hoped you enjoy this crazy little post! Leave a comment below and tell me what you have been loving or hating this month.

Best Mac Cosmetics Packaging?

Hey everyone!

Today I am going to be writing about pretty, Mac packaging. This subject came into my head when my dad brought me home a Liberty of London lipgloss. He had been on a trip to London and he thought it would be funny to bring me back something from this collection! I LOVE IT. Anyway, the packaging on the lipgloss was the first thing that caught my eye. It is extremely girly and fun, which is what I love about it. With the flowers and the birds, I just feel like I am running through a garden! Hahaha. I have not been shopping at Mac long enough to have an idea of what I think is the prettiest packaging, but I think Liberty of London tops the charts. I also think the Heatherette products were adorable. What collection packaging did you like the best? Leave your opinion in the comments below and describe the collection! Have a great day :)

Black Track Fluidline Review

Hey everyone! Today I am going to do a quick review on Mac's Blacktrack Fluidline because I was pleasantly surprised by how well it works. I have used it about 6 times since I bought it and every time I put it on the intensity stays all day. I have never used a gel liner that didn't fade after the first few hours, so I am impressed with how long it stays. Another great thing about this gel is a little goes a long way; therefore, the $15 price tag is worth it in the long run. Also, it glides on very easily, which I look for in a gel. I am still learning how to apply gel liners right and it helps to have a nice product that glides on without too much grab on my lid. Overall the Fluideline is a great product. I am really happy I gave it a shot!

All Cosmetic Wholesale Haul!

Hey everyone! Yes, I am doing another haul, but I haven't ordered makeup in a long time so that is my excuse! Like my last haul, this isn't too big, but I am satisfied! Here is everything!

Stilla Kitten- This is one of the most gorgeous colors I have ever tired.. Scratch that, the BEST COLOR I HAVE EVER TRIED. This puppy is so creamy and pigmented that it is almost unbearable. I love it soooo much. It is in this funky little pan because I didn't have anything else that would fit it. Let's just say it is huge.

Stars Makeup Haven Eyeshadows- I am beyond excited to try these shadows out. They all swatch beautifully and are as creamy as could be. I also bought the SMH palette which is a bit smaller than the Mac Palette, but just as sturdy. This palette has magnets, but the only thing it doesn't have is the name or the logo on it. Here are the 6 colors I bought along with their names.

Maybelline Eye Makeup Remover- This is the last product I bought and since it was so cheap I decided to give it a go. I really needed a new eye makeup remover. I hope this one works.
