I LOVE THIS MOISTURIZER!! It is by far the best I have found. It does not leave a waxy feel on my skin. It does not cause me to break out. I use it after using the Clinique Acne Solution foam face wash. I recommend it for everyone.
Cleansers -Clinique - Acne Solutions Cleansing Foam

I bought this product after I got a gift card to Sephora last month. Have to say..It is a really good cleanser. I love the pump and I love that it is a foam. The first few days I used it, my face did break out. I guess it was from it bringing all the dirt/bacteria to the surface because after the initial break out my face has been blemish free. It does have funky smell but it really did not phase me. It leaves my face feeling really clean. Any redness I had on my face has vanished also. I would recommend this product to anyone with light to moderate acne ..not someone that breaks out consistently. I also would not recommend it to someone with dry skin. I first started out using it twice a day but found that my skin was starting to flake around the nose area (I have semi oily skin). Since I have dropped to only using it once a day, all the flaking has stopped. I would recommend buying any moisturizer to use along side of it. I use Moisture Surge by Clinique.
Love this product. Not to big on the smell but that was about the only down side to it. It gives me the extra volume I desire with out making my hair feel heavy. I use it along with a little Regis Designline Powder Boost volumizer near my crown and get exactly what I want. I recommend it for thick hair. Not sure how well it would do for someone with thin hair.
Styling Products -Matrix - Biolage Fortifying Heat Styler

This is by far my favorite heat protector creme. I use about a nickle to quarter size amount on my hair, which is a little below my shoulders. I have frizzy/wavy hair and this product tames and adds shine. It does not make my hair look greasy at ALL. I am from the south so humidity is a big problem but this product fair well against it. I recommend testing out how much you need cause if you use to much of it it will make your hair very limp and avoid the root area just in case.
Foundations -Too Faced - Amazing Face Oil Free Close-Up Coverage

I did find the product to be very runny but it covers great. Just a dab will cover your whole face. It covered any blemishes that I had on my face, but I would still invest in a concealer. I use trans. powder on top of it with no primer cause I tend to get oily if I use one. I actually dig the no SPF since I am so fair a little sun would do me good. I bought the lightest shade available (there aren't many to chose from) and it was a perfect fit for my coloring. It is super blend-able and you could use it with a little bit of another foundation (I use Hard Candy) if need be to get it into the high medium coverage. It is true it has this product has yellow undertones without any orange in it so is great with masking red spots. It has yet to break me out, which is awesome! Average wear time is about 6 hours for me with a little touching up. It has a very natural looking finish which I LOVE. I would not recommend it for oily skin though :( And I am a little worried about the bottle breaking but it is cute so I will just be very careful.
Mascara -Urban Decay - Big Fatty Mascara - Waterproof

I was a little if-y when I saw how big the brush was. But I was completely happy with the outcome. It does not run and gave a ton of volume/length when used with a curler, gave mid used without one. No raccoon eyes for me!
Eyeliner -Hard Candy - Walk the Line - Liquid Liner in Asphalt
SnappyLeeLee 12/31/2011 1:13:00 AM
Hands down best liquid eyeliner I have found. I just switched from gel eyeliner cause I kept having to re -apply to get the dark black that I wanted. It is slow drying but once is set it is smudge proof. I highly recommend it and will buy it again.
I really will never use this product again. I use BH Cosmetic's Eyeshadow Palette 2nd edition and alone there is min to no creasing. When I used this eye primer just to see what it would do it caused creasing....BAD. It is also very sticky D: It presently sits on in my medicine counter where it will never see the light of day.
Foundations -Hard Candy - Just Face It - One Step Foundation

I have about 10 different unused foundations in my make up bag. It took me 10 tries to find this product. I LOVE it. I can not even express how much I LOVE it. It goes on smooth with a light to medium cover. It covers any scars, unevenness, or redness on my face. I did find you have to be careful on how much you apply around the jaw line. Besides that it is an awesome product. Coverage lasts 12 hours. I have never had to retouch it. It can if you have oily skin cause you to shine through..but they do make blot sheets just for this. I will rebuy this product after I finish trying out Two Faced Amazing Face foundation.
I have been using this product for the past 3 weeks.I usually break out around my jaw line sometimes on my chin. I do get a little oily on my T-zone but I am from the south where there is a lot of humidity. This product didn't really help with that as much as I thought it might but it did seem to help a little bit. It didn't cause any initial break out like most expect when you start using acne cleansers and it didn't cause me to dry out. It actually started clearing my skin on day 2. It cleared up my skin about 85 percent. I have switched to using it only in the morning and using Clinique Acne Solutions Face Cleanser at night. I would recommend it for any skin type.
