Perfect in the beginning, disaster in the end. I bough the travel size (squeeze tube) and still have TONS left. I used this maybe for 2 weeks then the horrible breakouts started, bumps everywhere! Cystic acne, whiteheads, bumps under my skin, oh gosh it was horrible! Stopped using it right away and I still have them here and there but their going away. I had to invest in PTR glycolic face wash and have been using it everyday at night. I did find a dupe for this. The sephora brand has a matte primer a short bottle with a pump and its clear. Works just as good and I believe its about 14$ compared to 45$
A hidden gem at sephora. I use this setting powder everyday and it helps to keep my face matte all day long. It has light reflecting particles in it so it dosent look dead matte, a little goes a long way, looks good in flash photography, and they now have a compact version if you prefer a pressed powder to loose. I have both and have no desire to keep looking for a good setting powder. HG!
Applying was fast and easy with a flat top kabuki, but throughout the day it wore off in patches so bad that I was ashamed to be seen in public, I was at work and had to look at patients all day like that. I would give this no lippies if I could >:(
No coverage, orange, slid off my face by afternoon, and broke me out. Horrible!
Love the med - full coverage, but this still makes me itch ): it did keep me matte for most of the day untill I broke a sweat, then the burning and itching started, ugh total misery.

This is such a beautiful foundation, but after a couple hours it just melts away. If set it with the hd powder and prep my skin with the primer. Still melts away ): will stick with my mat velvet
I love the bottle! Wear this pretty much everyday, and have gotten countless compliments on it. I also like that any age can wear it, meaning it dosent smell like a young or a mature scent. Beautiful for all ages. If you really wanna get your moneys worth I suggest the roll on and lipgloss duo. Its this pretty pink lipgloss that smells like candy.

Eyeliner -MAC - Fluidline Eye-Liner Gel in Blacktrack

One of my top 3 gel eyeliners. Hasn't dried out on me and I've had it for over a year. Also I have found theirs a dupe for this. Wet and wild gel eyeliner. Just as creamy and long lasting. However iam still in love MORE with my BB gel eyeliner. I alternate with them both so I don't see myself running out of eyeliner anytime soon. Total hit from mac :D
HG bronzer. No sparkles, matte finish, long lasting, can build up easily, and theirs so much product it seems never ending. Love it and will continue to repurchase

This is great to use after I flat iron my hair. It smoothes away my flyaways, adds shine, and smells refreshing. I've had the same bottle for over a year, a small drop is enough for your whole head. Work from the ends to the scalp. Your ends are always the dryest. Will repurchase when I run out
My boyfriend loves this perfume on me, it drives him crazy! Stays on for at least 4-5 hrs with a spritz on my pulse points. Even though I love love love this I'm upset that they uped the price. They didn't add anymore product so why jack the price up? Leave it up to mac.

I love this facial bar! I purchased it at kaiser in the pharmacy dept. Cost around 5$ has lasted me so far 4 months and I still have a good amount left with on and off use. Light fragrance, dosent make my face feel dry and tight, and it lathers well to get that deep clean feeling. I use this on rotation with my peter thomas roth washes and my skin is clearing up nicely. ( Currently recovering from yet again another foundation that didn't agree with my skin) will repurchase, and I do recommend :D
Polishes -Maybelline - Express Finish Nail Polish (any color)

Have this in onyx rush, have to layer it twice to get a perfect shiny black color. The bottle has lasted for a good 6 months with on and off use. Stays chip free for at least 4-5 days without top coat. It also dries in a minute, which is awesome because I hate waiting for my nails to dry. Will continue to purchase and look into theirs pinks and reds
My other HG chapstick. Comes in a blue twist tube, plenty of product, cheap, and dosent give me any of thoes nasty bumps like chapstick did. The scent is very light, like a clean scent. Highly recommended
