This self tanner is awesome! It's not orange and doesn't get all streaky. I prefer this over any self-tanner out there. I used it and im an NC 30-35 color and my friend used it and she's extremely pale. It worked on both of us! It's around 24 dollars at ulta but they always have some kind of coupon, so it came out to around $18. Also, I used it on my face and didn't break out. The smell is amazing too! A must!
I heard from the grapevine that these oils were just as good as my usual perfumes. I sampled a few didn't really like any of them. I'm not into musk scents or anything that's not sweet smelling. I found this baby hiding all alone behind the display. I sampled it and it smelled fresh, sweet, and a little bit floral. It's divine. Last longer than my expensive perfumes and has an amazing scent!
This is HG worthy for me. I have been on the long hunt for a good foundation that has lasting power, doesn't look caky, and suites my yellow toned skin. Im NC30 and bought 83 based on reviews. I had to buy this off amazon because I live in the US and this brand isn't available here. When I received this I immediately thought "this is so dark!" and much to my surprise, it goes on way lighter than what it looks like. In fact, it matches me perfectly! It's very yellow, so if you have more pink or neutral tones, im not sure if this will work for you. The lasting power is magnificent! and glides on so effortlessly. It makes my skin looked airbrushed.I actually like the little brush it comes with. The packaging is small, which I also like for traveling purposes. I just hope that this isn't discontinued because FINALLY I found a foundation I love for cheap!
Primer/ Corrector -Hourglass - Veil Mineral Primer SPF 15

This primer is probably the best one I have ever tried. I have oily skin and like most oily skinned people, I need something to manage the oilies and keep my foundation in tip top shape. My nose still becomes oily but my foundation does look great hours after application. I only use a dot of it here and there on my face. The price is uhhh....a little overpriced but I just buy the small one for $20. I have NC30 skin with strong yellow undertones and I don't see the white cast others are seeing with it.
This product makes my hair soft and adds shine. It smells nice too. I spray it when my hair is wet and proceed to style. I have very thick, coarse, and damaged hair. I didn't believe how soft my hair became after using this! It's expensive but I figured I buy the large bottle and it will last me awhile. Also, I think it's always good to invest in good products if I'm styling my hair as mush as I do. Def will purchase again!
I didn't like this mascara. It was clumpy, didn't hold a curl, and really didn't do anything as far getting that "extreme" look.
Hair -L'Oreal - Excellence Cremelights Highlighting Kit

I was ready to try and do my own hair and stop paying loads of money to never get the results I wanted. I would closely watch my stylists do my hair and I knew I could conquer it. So I read reviews and bought this kit at sally's. Let me tell you, I have dark/dyed hair that usually takes hours to achieve a somewhat noticeable lift. I always hear the same story from every hair stylist about how my hair is too dark and how I'll have to return numerous times to achieve that sun kissed look. This product lifted my hair from dark brown to blonde within 15 minutes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I mean, it came out BLONDE. So blonde that I ran to sally's to tone it down to a lighter brown/golden blonde color. I fell in love with my hair and I get tons of compliments. I did my own balayage highlights. I would recommend purchasing a toner to get rid of the brassy/orange color. In the end, I feel like this product is somewhat better than ordinary bleach because you don't have it on your hair for more than 15 minutes. Meanwhile, at a salon they leave bleach for hours at a time. Happy Coloring!
Love this stuff! This stuff is the only product that removes all of my eye make-up. It is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!! So cheap and it works. Can't go wrong.
I didn't want to like this product. Some SA at sephora kind of forced me to try it on. Per usual, it was the wrong shade she put on me and it felt heavy. I totally was not into it. Fast forward a few weeks ago. I was in the market for a new foundation that stayed on me for as long as possible. My skin is dry and oily. Not the more desirable and a little challenging to work with. My field of work requires me to move around all day and I do work up a sweat. I researched it and this foundation kept popping up. I caved and found that 52 was one of the shades with yellow tones it and it so happened to match my nc30 skin. This foundation is all about how you apply it. I apply my face lotion and only dab a tiny amount on my face. It doesn't appear cakey or heavy. My moisturizer gives the finish to be a little bit more dewy but if you want that matte effect, you can defiantly get it with this foundation. Give it a try if you are looking for a long lasting foundation.
I am around an NC30 and I believe I am using 3.5. Not entirely sure. Coverage is medium. The longevity of this foundation is about 5 hours for me. Which is good because I have oily skin. I like it because it doesn't feel heavy on my skin. The color selection is decent but I do agree with others who say it appears ashy. Overall, it's an average foundation.
Let me tell you! This stuff is the business! I am trying to lighten my hair by using honey and some other natural ingredients. So I will shampoo my hair and then rinse and pour some apple cider vinegar on rinse and condition. My hair becomes so much more shiny, soft, and all around healthier looking. This stuff is awesome.
I love this mascara. It's perfect for me. It's cheap and works well. I tend to lean towards the more natural and less wet foundation formulas. It's been a long road of trial and error and I really like this one. It separates and lengthens like a dream. Clumps are minimal and my lashes hold a curl!
Liquid -Shiseido - Sun Protection Liquid Foundation SPF 42 PA+++

I like this foundation but it has a major issue. The color range is lacking. I am NC30 to NC 35 and I chose 50. It seems really dark but it's so light. The colors are more beige than yellow, which I need. I do get oily, so it's not a miracle worker in that aspect. However, it does give a nice natural finish and covers spots pretty well. I also how light it feels at the same time. I think if I could find my color it would be a great foundation. If you can find yours, give it a try!
I bought this for $7 when sephora was discontinuing the line and I love it. It doesn't leave an orange or muddy look on my face. I have nc30 skin and I use it just to warm up my face. It does have shimmer in it but I don't see it when it's on my face. I have been wearing this everyday!
I'm a little biased because I never tried a bb cream BUT that's due to lack of yellow tones in other bb's. So that being said, this stuff is pretty decent. I do get oily but I like that it matches me well. NC30 color I bought light. However, if you have really light skin I believe you might have some issues finding a correct shade. They are limited. I do set it with either my banana powder or elf hd powder. It's perfect when I get lazy and I don't want to mix in my sunscreen with foundation and put a primer on.
