This mascara is just a little bit horrid. It's clumpy, smudgy, flaky, and doesn't coat my lashes evenly. I really can't find any redeeming qualities. Blech.
I wanted to love this foundation. I wanted it to be the foundation of my dreams. Instead, this broke me out like nobody's business. My skin is rebelling against this foundation: I've gotten more bumps on my face in the past two months than I have otherwise gotten in the past two years. I don't have oily skin; I don't have sensitive skin. I don't know why my skin decided to freak out. But it did. And that makes me very depressed. update: I tried the combination/oily foundation and it did not break me out. Soooo if the normal/dry stuff messes you up, at least try the combination/oily. Because this foundation is the best quality of any drugstore brands.
Mascara -Maybelline - Full 'n' Soft waterproof mascara (vitamin E)

This is my HG...sorta. I'm always searching for a better mascara, but no matter how much I look, I never find anything remotely close to being as good as Full'n'Soft. It is a really good mascara: it stays on all day and doesn't clump or smudge at all. It is incredibly waterproof. It also adds definition to lashes without looking spidery or fake. I have naturally long/thick lashes, so I don't know if it lengthens or volumizes well, but that is irrelevant in my case. I will continue to use Full'n'Soft until the end of the world. Or until I find a better mascara.
Skincare - Face -Unlisted Brand - Dickinson's Witch Hazel

wow. this stuff is fantastic. whenever i see a pimple coming on, i put some of this on a cotton ball, apply it to the pimple, and a few minutes later, the pimple is noticeably smaller. by the end of the day, the pimple is gone. it doesn't irritate my dry skin, either. dickinson's is perfection.
I was too pale for the lightest shade, but I don't mind because the consistency is runny, the color is ashy, and it's a bad foundation anyway.
I LOVE THIS LIP BALM!!!!! Everybody needs it!
Lip Treatments -Burt's Bees - Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil
MakeMeUp14326 2/25/2009 7:13:00 PM
I bought this because it seemed a little more exotic than the classic Burt's Bees. I assumed it had the same quality that I've grown to expect from Burt's Bees, but when I tried it, I was disappointed. It does not smell/taste good, and the consistency is chunky. It also has a sheer tint, which although may look good on some people, it looks unnatural on me. More importantly, it does not soothe my dry lips. This lip balm is iffy, and I wouldn't suggest it to anybody.
I really like Suave Advanced Therapy Moisturizer. It really does soften my extremely dry skin. It smells good, but it's a little too strong for my sensitivity to perfume. Although I will not buy it again because of my allergies, I would recommend this to anybody that isn't allergic to perfume.
This is a really nice lip balm. It smells and feels AMAZING. It has a tint to it, which is really pretty, just a little bit too dark for me (I'm a teenager, and I don't wear much makeup. I'm also very pale, so there is a lot of contrast between the lip color and my skin tone.) I'll probably wear this when I'm a little older, or for a special occasion.
This tanner was not good. It smelled bad and made me look orange. I really can't find any redeeming qualities about this self-tanning moisturizer, I would never go out in public wearing this.
This is not as good as it claims to be. I bought it in hopes that it would make my skin appear even and flawless without looking made-up. It didn't hide my flaws, and even though I bought the lightest shade, it was still too dark for me. It is too expensive to not work. I won't buy it again.
Mascara -Maybelline - Great Lash Mascara Waterproof
MakeMeUp14326 11/8/2008 4:27:00 PM
This is your average good mascara. It is very waterproof, which is good for rainy days, but it is rather hard to get off, but that's not a big deal. It doesn't clump or flake and it's long lasting. My only problem is that it doesn't really define or lengthen my eyelashes better than any other mascara. But it's a good mascara for the price.
this is a great lip balm. it smells good and makes my lips smooth. my lips also look shiny, but not unnatural. it's just a little bit pricey for a small lip balm, but otherwise it's really good. edit: for some reason, something about this lip balm (possibly the fragrance...maybe just one of the ingredients in it...) makes me cough. weird, yes, but the good thing is, there are tons other lip balms out there and i'll just throw this one in the back of my drawer in case there's a lip balm rapture and it is the only one left behind.
Liquid -Cover Girl - TRUblend Liquid Makeup (12/2007 reformulation)
MakeMeUp14326 10/29/2008 8:38:00 PM
I think this foundation is really nice. i've had a hard time finding a foundation that matches my skin tone because i'm really pale, but i tried the lightest shade of TRUblend, and it's actually my color. the only problem that i have with TRUblend is that it can look a bit thick on my skin, but usually i mix it in with moisturizer so it becomes more like tinted moisturizer, and then it's fine. i have tried several types of foundation, but so far this is the best for me.
