Lip Treatments -C.O. Bigelow - Lavender Rose Salve

I just want to start off by saying that unlike their rosé salve, I can actually OPEN this container. I bought this from bath and body works for about 7 dollars and use it every night. I slather it on my hands and lips. Not only does this moisturize, but it helps me fall asleep. I will buy this over and over again. I love the smell and hardly find it artificial.

This is creamy, dark and has AMAZING staying power. It smudges out if you want it to while still keeping color. I love this so much. I got it on sale for 2 dollars and want to go buy more!
For a while, I really liked this. I would apply it with a beauty blender. It kept me matte all day long, which was a HUGE plus. Sadly, it started oxidizing and turned orange on me. It also made me extremely oily. I now sometimes use this in the winter when my skin is pale and dry. It can also look cakey. I don't reccomend this mainly because of the color issue. UPDATE : I don't know WHY I gave this 3 lippies. Im using it now im the colder weather and it has only made me oiler. Knocked it down to 1 lippie. :(

This is okay.. I use it to freshen up during the day. The only downside is that it can smell like soap. Just use sparingly. ;)
Foundations -Garnier - BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector Daily All-In-One

I honestly don't understand the hype of this. It's thick, doesn't blend well, sits on the skin, and sweats off my face. Ick. BUT, I have found a way to make it work. I mix it in with a lighter, more luminous (Too Faced Beauty Balm ((Which I don't like by itself))) BB Cream. Together, they make a very pretty, dewy BB Cream. It makes me look healthy and radiant. I have an oily T-Zone and surprisingly enough, I don't set these products with a powder. I wait until I get oily, blot, then dab on Milani's Mulitasking Powder. I love the combination. OVERALL: I wouldn't use this product by itself. If I didnt find a way to use it, it would be in the trash can. I dont reccomend this for oily skin ladies (or men), at all. UPDATE: I absolutely hate this . It NEVER sinks into my skin. I ended up LOVING the TF BB Cream, and using it by itself. I hate this, a lot. A complete waste of 15 $.
This brush is...possibly the only brush I may ever need. First off, it's soooo soft <3 It has never shed, it's never been rough. Its never had some strange smell to it either.. I apply my liquid foundation, powder, blush, and sometimes highlighter with it. Thia brush is really great, and at 3 USD, you can't go wrong (; UPDATE: The ferrel keeps coming off. Minus 1 lippie.
I love this blush. I was bought it on impulse, Heather is my favorite name. I own only one other WNW blush- Pearlesnt (?) Pink- which is exactly like NARS Orgasm. Heather Silk is one of a kind. It's a beautiful, silky Barbie Pink. It literally melts into your skin. On top of it all, it's SUPER pigmented. Dont be afraid of using it as an everyday color. The trick is to use a light hand. You really won't regret buying it!
I adore this product! It contains a concealer and correcter. The concealer is a more peachy tone color - its very creamy. The correcter is yellow toned based and is drier formulated. I use the correcter as a "primer" for the concealer. The concealer covers EVERYTHING. I set it all with either the translucent powder it came with or my NYC Smooth Skin Powder in Translucent. I will repurchase. The only thing is that it only comes in 4 shades. 1, 2, 3, & 4. I have UC-4 (Im a medium tan..) It's a pretty good match, but the true color isn't what the first layer is. The first layer is darker than what is actually in the pot. So make sure you're getting the right color...I totally reccomend this! Even for us oily/combo girls ;)

I bought this because of the cute packing and all of the hype. I forced myself to use it for those reasons ( hehe ) . The more I used it, the more my lips felt dry. The packing is cute, but annoying. I tried to apply it in class, but it rolled out of my hands onto the floor...and kept rolling...and rolling.. Needless to say it was embarrassing. The smell and taste reminds me of Peach Rings (Yummm). The packaging and taste/smell is the only reason it got two lippies. I no longer use it, and my lips feel much better. Say the 5 bucks and go buy yourself some Starbucks. It's so much more worth it ;)
