I really like this primer. I have oily skin. However, this primer did not cause me to break out or get oilier during the day. Instead of going on oily, this primer feels very silky once you put it on your skin. I love the way it lets my Studio Fix go on my skin. I tend to use less foundation/powder this way. I think I've found another staple for my makeup bag. BTW, if you are a DDD, you will not see much in terms of pearlescence. I just found that my skin had a diffused look to it...quite pleasant.
this was just okay mascara...don't expect a significant change to your lashes. you can get similar/better results from a cheaper mascara.
Eyeliner -Victoria's Secret - Dash me a line eye pencil

I like this eyeliner. It's easy to do a smoky eye with this liner, but I can also do a thin precise line with the VS liners as well. The only catch is you HAVE to sharpen the pencils using the VS sharpener. Otherwise, you are wasting your money because your liner point will fall out.
This product seem to work at keeping the oilies at bay. I have the neutral. However, I have medium brown skin (NC45), and I've found that you really have to work this product in well or you will end up with a white buildup on some part of your face. Other than that, I will be buying this product again. I works every well. Also, after a week of use, I have not had any break outs.
The foundation is okay, at best. I didn't care for the full coverage. Everyone with oily skin doesn't have a bunch of blemishes! When are cosmetics companies going to learn that?! In addition, the color seem to "change" after a few hours. Go figure.
I like this product. I left my face smooth. It's not really grainy at all, so I was skeptical at firt. However, I followed the package directions. I ended up with smooth skin that "glowed".
I like this product. Hint, for a subtle daytime glow, mix a little of this in your hand with your body lotion.
If you are in the NC45 range, this color, along with Chai, is a MUST have. This is one of my first and favority l/g shades. It's completely wearable if you have the right yellow undertones in your skin. On me, this is a perfect nude. It's neutral, but not TOO neutral...if that makes sense.
I like this bronzer. I'm an NC45, so I don't really NEED a bronzer, but sometimes I like to look like I "glow". Most bronzers have too much red in them and end up making me look muddy and dirty. However, this bronzer gives my face just the right amount of "glow". I bought the Light and use it as a highlighter of sorts. My HG bronzer for less than $4. Who would have thought?!
I like this toner. It seems to do its job without being so harsh on my face. The price is a little high, but I've found it to be worth the investment.
This scrub is too harsh to use on anyone's face. The shells in this product tear your delicate skin's surface. I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone.
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Heel of Approval

I like the foot cream. My heels aren't cracked, but my feet are always dry and hard. This cream, when used regularly, seems to make a remarkable difference. It does a much better job than the other foot creams sold at BBW.
I used to love VS Heavenly, but I truly ADORE Body by Victoria. This scent is powdery and dries down nicely.
WOW! I didn't know OPI still carried this color. It's definitely a fav.
This is my foundation of choice. I have great skin...not bragging here...This powder is sheer. It keeps the oilies at bay for a while and the color match is pretty good (NC45).
