HG drugstore foundation. HANDS DOWN! Stays on all day & has amazing coverage :) I purchased 3 bottles so far! I think that's saying something!

This stuff rocks!!! If you have oily skin, like me, this is a must for weekly use. It has a pulsating feeling on your skin, meaning its sucking the oils and dirt deep down in your pores. its such a weird feeling!!! At first the smell bothered me, but I got use to it fast! I used mine with the apply cider vinegar for full effects! Im glad I came across this stuff and a tub is going to last me a long time! I use this twice a week and it does a great job of controlling my oil and keeping my face fresh! I rinse after 20 minutes or longer! It tightens my face and it gets hard to talk or laugh hahahha. If you use the Mint Julep mask, this one is totally more intense than that & works better imo. I purchased mine from a GMC :) Love this stuff!
Whyyyyyy would NARS include this in their line?!?!? Its so chunky with glitter ugh its horrible. Pretty, but not realistic if you have huge pores like me :(
Pressed Powders -Rimmel - Stay Matte Pressed Powder (ALL)

Great inexpensive setting powder or all over powder. My only complaint is the lid. I wish it was more of a compact rather than one you just take off. Makes traveling with it hard. Other than that you cant really complain since its a couple of dollars. Keeps my face pretty matte for a while!
Primer/ Corrector -Urban Decay - All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray

I wanted to LOVE this, but it does nothing for my skin. Keep in mind that I have really oily skin & i would have to say this keeps my makeup on for like an HOUR! Thats it! Ughhh, super overpriced too. I kept it just hoping I would get it just right, but nooo. My bottle's all emptied out and Im not satisfied. Still looking for that perfect setting spray and MAC Fix Plus doesnt work either. Maybe Ill give the MUFE one a try
This lipstick screams FALL for me! Its the perfect brown lipstick with a soft touch of red for my NC30/35 skintone! I recently dyed my hair black so it makes it look more intense but I like that w/ a simple eye look. Definately creamy & pigmented. GIve this one a try next time at a counter if you're looking for a nice fall lipstick! :)
Very shimmeery lid color but pretty! Very nice if you're going for a green-eyeshadow look cuz I think it compliments green well
I really REALLY wanted to love this blush because of the beautiful color and the type of glow on my skin, but it doesn't give color on my cheeks. Ive been playing around with it & notice that I have to put more swipes for it to show up. Ive read the revew on it from Temptalia and thought this was PERFECT but dont get me wrong I think on lighter skin tones it will be great, but for my skin tone (NC35) , it just wasnt happening. Maybe I got a bad batch, but I highly doubt that since this is a pricey blush. Unfortunately will be returning :/
Beautiful neutral blush that doesn't need a lot of effort to pull off. One of those under-rated blushes from NARS that doesn't get enough loving! Try it next time you come across a NARS counter. I think you will be pleasantly surprised :}
FINALLY A RED LIPSTICK I CAN WEAR EVERYDAY! Thaaaank you MAC gods! OMG I cant get over this lipstick. If you are on the fence about wearing a red lipstick, PLEASE CONSIDER THIS LIPSTICK as a starter! The color looks very intense in the tube but goes on very sheer cuz of the lustre finish. I love using this lipstick when i do a neutral eye because it just ties everything in! The staying power can be long if you wear a lipliner. I like to put a darker gloss (like a berry) on top & it looks PERFECT for fall! I was scared of red lips before but this helped me get over that fear. Definately an under-dog in MAC lipsticks compared to its sibling Russian Red. IN LOOOVE WITH THIS!
I do agree that if you are NC20 and lighter, this would be a perfect blush for you, but Im Nc30 and this doesnt do much for me except give me a nice glow. There is no color pay off in my skin and feels like im putting shimmer on the wrong part of my face =x Ehhhh not my favorite from MAC
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum Express The Falsies Flared
piinkcheeks27 10/1/2011 6:30:00 PM
Used this for the first time today, and just had to review it! This one is way better than the original falsies because it gives my lashes such length and volume! no clumps here! Mine is the waterproof version so I dont know if I can say the same for the regular formula! It didnt weight my lashes in any form and I love how they are looking. So far, this one and my Maybelline Collosal is my favooorite & HG :)))
I really like this lip scrub. AT first I didnt like how it went on my lips cuz it just "fell off" when I would rub it, but I found a solution to that! I use Carmex first so it has something to stick on then I would put this over it. AHHH PROBLEM SOLVED. Goes on much better and the scrub does its thing. I like the feeling of it and the taste heheheh. Although its just "flavored sugar" It has other good oils that helps with chapped lips. I use this at least twice a week. Its a pretty big jar imo and will last me a while :))
I really hope & pray that this mascara isn't LE! First off, Im not a fan at all of their Great Lash mascara because the formula was too wet and my lashes looked like spider legs! YIIKES!!! Ive stayed away from their mascara ever since. But I remember reading about this mascara in a blog & for a while I couldnt find it in my drugstores or a Target. Until Last saturday, I found it at my local Walgreens! I snatched one up immediately & was super stoked! I was intrigued by this because of the tapered wand and by the title "Lots of Lashes". Hoping this might help my asian lashes become fuller ;) I was REALLY glad that this formula wasnt wet at all & dispensed the right amount of mascara onto the wand! I love this thing!!! It grabs every lash & gives awesome length. I cant say much about thickness, but it made my lashes very long! THis is also great for the lower lash line as well :) I find this is a must have for cheap mascaras and if youre in the market to buy one, give this a shot! Its under 6 bucks and its awesome!
I initially thought the cardboard packaging it came in was the actual lip balm, but its not. Besides that, Im in looove with this lip balm. I wanted to carry around a lip balm w/ some color in it & figured why not try this one. It took me a while to purchase this cuz when I would go around to buy it, i back out. But im so glad I finally bought it! The texture on these are way different (IMO) than the other lip balms from burts bees. Its alot silkier and moisturizing, and just doesnt "sit" on your lips. The color isnt as vibrant as I would like, but its buildable and its enough for me with two swipes. I myself have discoloration on my top lip, so this helps fills them in (if you know what I mean). There is no tingly sensation you would get with the regular burts bees lipbalm. Overall, I really enjoy this lip balm & use it everyday, even when Im not going out. Really going to look into the other colors now :)) Oh and these are readily available at any drugstore, Target, Wal-mart, etc!
