Cleansers -Cetaphil - Daily Facial Cleanser (Normal to Oily Skin)
Christmaself55 2/28/2010 5:27:00 PM
I use this to remove my makeup. I usually wash my face and removed my makeup with a scrubby. Since I am on accutane I can't use any harsh or it will leave my skin irritated. I love it though, gentle, removes makeup, and feels clean when I am done but not dry. For the price it's the best you can get.
Drugstore brands aren't all bad and some products are better than department store. I wore this foundation during high school but there was never a color that matched my skin. It was either too light or too dark with pink undertones. I have olive undertones and this line just doesn't have a good color for me. I also thought the consistency made me look flakey as well. It also rubbed off quickly. Overall not impress. Revlon Color Stay has more colors, the same price, and better more durable consistency.
I love this perfume and I used to wear it all the time. Then suddenly last year I became extremely allergic. I wouldn't buy it again because I am allergic to it,but I would buy it again if I wasn't! I think it smells so clean and so fresh. I love! It stays on your clothes for a long time too! LOVE IT!
Lip Treatments -Carmex - Moisture Plus Ultra Hydrating Lip Balm

I am on acutane right now and this lip product is a life saver. I love the little tube it comes in and I think it looks chic for a lip moisturizer. I accidentally washed it and dried it in some clothes and the product was just fine. I know other lip products would have melted for sure. I love it! My first choice for a lip product would be vaseline or aquaphor, since I am on accutane, but this is my 3rd choice and the one I carry with me most often.
Lotions/ Creams -Palmers - Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula

LOVE IT! It's amazing. Good for cracked since and I love it contains no alcohol. A lot of lotions come with alcohol and that is just more drying on your skin in reality. I would definitely recommend this product.
This is the new IT foundation for me. I have oily skin, but recently not so oily because I am on accutane, and this foundation is a god send. It does not cake on, doesn't rub off, and feel light weight. It's very pigmented so I don't need a lot to cover my face/ neck/ chest. I lightly go over my neck and chest with the foundation just to make it even. I cannot recommend this for oily skin type. I use Lit L in Ivory 2.1. It is SOO a perfect match and it's not too pink which is what I get with a lot of other foundations. I LOVE it!
I actually really love the nail polishes for the price. I wear black nail polish and how can I go wrong with a 1 buck nail polish that delivers? Can't really! Check out my blog and yummymakeup.blogspot.com :P
I finally bought these and I like them a lot. They do their job and they are cheap. What more could I ask for? I do go through them fast BUT it's only 1 buck for 50 sheets that lasts me about a week or a week and half. I buy about 15-20 at a time! In love!
Eye Shadow -E.L.F. - Mineral Eyeshadow - Seductive

This eyeshadow is pretty nice. This color reminds me of In the Garden from EveryDay Minerals, it's more browny than bronzing. I like it overall. It's a pretty and I think it's a good eyeshadow for night time. Nothing to special about it. Check out my blog and yummymakeup.blogspot.com :P
I don't think this mascara is good. The brush is not that great which results in a bad application. I love the clumpy look and I can't achieve that with this. I feel there isn't enough product.on the brush/wand and it takes forever to put on. Also the wand is very large to apply to the bottom lashes. I think if you just need some masacara on the run it's okay but it's not anything to rant or rave about. Check out my blog and yummymakeup.blogspot.com :P
I love how fine the powder is. I used Everyday Minerals and it was good but rather chunky. I think this mineral booster smells good and it does it's job. I have a very oily complexion and it reduces my oilies ten fold. I have it with me in my bag all the time :D. I also love how sheer it is. I use it in the night time after my Tinted Moisterizer from E.L.F and it's wonderful. I have also noticed my makeup staying on longer. This is way cheap but totally good qaulity. You also get .63 grams or ounces, I can't remember, but the jar is big and looks like it will last for a long time. Trust me when I say this powder rocks!

Tinted Moisturizer -E.L.F. - Shielding Hydro-Tint SPF 15 in Tone 1

I have Tone 3 but there isn't a category for it! but I absolutely love it. I use it in the night time when I remove my day makeup. It's moisterizing and it also covers my un even skin tone. I feel much sexier now when I remove my day/ night makeup. I love it. It certainly takes some used to, the smell that is. It doesn't cover too much or too little it's just right. I definetly recommend. Check out my blog and yummymakeup.blogspot.com :P
I tried it at my cousins house and I loved the tingle of the cleanser. I don't know how well it works on removing makeup but it does leave my skin feeling smooth and refreshed. I like that it's blue and easy to see in my hands since I have bad eyesight. I haven't tried it that much but I did enjoy using it when I did. This would be my recommended cleanser but it's kind of expensive to buy all the time for me. 20$ isn't that bad but I 10$ on my current cleanser and get a lot more of it.

Kind of filmsy. I have a nasty T- ZONE and my face is literally an oil slick every hour so I have to blot. I've tried these and they work but I need to use several. They are only a dollar but I don't like that you can't see too visibly where your oil is. I like seeing how much oil I have so I can compare products I'm using for that day. The case is also not that great. It's worth a buck but not much more. Check out my blog and yummymakeup.blogspot.com :P
I absolutely love this product.. I feel that this scrub is very refined. I found ways to get it online cheaper which will make it easier for me to keep it in stock. It might not seem like 50 $ is a lot but it is when I have other facial medication I take. My friend who originally sold it to me said that it made her pores look smaller. That didn't really happen to me but I did feel my skin very smooth. My medication dries out my skin like crazy so I need something that will remove the dead skin and leave my normal skin there. This is perfect. I am actually ordering some right now lol. I think this is a great product to remove dead skin and I have not found anything so good and so effective without being so harsh.
