Mascara -Maybelline - Volum Express The Falsies Flared
melllm 9/28/2012 5:17:00 PM
I love this for an everyday look. Lengthens and volumizes. Doesn't clump either! I apply two coats and it looks great. Very quick and easy to use doesn't require using a lash curler. I have tried many high end mascaras and this works just as well and for much cheaper. I don't particularly like how the brush bends but it's not that big of a deal. Will repurchase when i finish. edit: had to reduce my overall rating because while I do like how this initially makes my lashes look, I've noticed that only a few hours into wear time it starts getting really dry and flaky and by the end of the day my lashes are a mess. Would only repurchase if I didn't have anything better on hand.
This lipstick is very sheer but it tones down my lips as they are pretty pigmented. Nice nude color to go with and everyday smokey eye or effortless makeup look. Not too drying but color doesnt last long. Need to reapply within an hour. If you are looking for something easy to put on in a rush this would work but if you want a nude that is more pigmented i would look into another lippie (mac's myth would be a good try).
Hair Styling Tools -GHD - Original GHD Hairstyling Iron with Ceramic Technology

Best flat iron i have ever purchased- well worth the money. Leaves hair silky smooth. Straightens hair very well, I only have to go over a section of hair once. Also, I love love love this for curling. Super easy to get bouncy waves and curls. I personally don't mind that the heat isnt adjustable. I always use the highest heat setting available because I don't see the point in using a lower setting and then having to go over your hair multiple times. Love this way more than my last flat iron (CHI).
Styling Products -TRESemme - Instant Heat Tamer Spray

I use this every time I use the blow dryer or flat iron on my hair. Smells amazing and makes my hair feels smooth and reduces frizz. Works better than all the other heat protectants I've purchased which typically costed 3 times the price of this. This is super affordable, doesnt weigh down my fine hair, and doesnt make my hair any more oily. No cons for me!
Lip Treatments -Blistex - DCT for lips - Daily Conditioning Treatment SPF 20

I use this everyday. Very moisturizing, doesn't just sit on top of lips. Also really inexpensive so that's a plus. Works well under drying lipsticks too or just repair my lips after wearing lipstick all day. Not a huge fan of the packaging, but I try my best to keep it clean so it doesn't bother me too much.
Gorgeous nude color, but unfortunately this makes me look like a corpse. I am pretty tanned right now (NC35 compared to my usual NC20) so i think Ill try this again come fall/winter. If you have a light skin tone then go for it!
Primer/ Corrector -Urban Decay - De-Slick Oil Control Makeup Setting Spray

My new HG! This product works really well for me. My face is mainly really oily in the t zone and I generally blot my face 4-5 times a day. I apply this spray after my moisturizer (about 4 sprays). Then after my makeup. Using this my face stays matte all day and my makeup doesn't melt off. Blotting my face has been reduced to once a day. Doesn't cause me any breakouts. Well worth the money. I have a feeling I'll be repurchasing this one forever.
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Fine Fragrance Mist in Pink Chiffon
melllm 8/24/2012 1:28:00 AM
My favorite BBW scent right now! I spray this all over after using the matching body lotion. I still use my favorite perfume because I find this isn't enough for me. I use it throughout the day as a refresher. Doesn't last long but that is to be expected from a body spray. The scent is very girly and sweet, but not in an obnoxious way. Will continue to repurchase.
I am tanned right now (around a NC35) and this looks great for everyday wear. I've been wearing this a lot lately and I'm loving it. I do find that I have to reapply often, but that doesn't bother me so much since I really love the color. Sometimes settles into the fine lines on my lips so I just apply a little lip balm prior to the lipstick.
Lotions/ Creams -Eucerin - Original Moisturizing Creme

I cannot live without this product, especially in the winter. When used regularily it keeps my skin moisturized and healthy looking. If I get lazy and neglect a little, this is a sure quick fix - especially for my hands, which often get eczema in the winter. Helps if I ever get dry patches on my face aswell, and doesn't break me out like other heavy creams.
My packing is beige, so not sure if it is a bit different. But i love this hand cream. I love the smell, although is may be strong for some. Didn't give it 5 because it is not as moisturizing as other hand creams I have.
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Warm Vanilla Sugar body splash

I love this scent. I use it everyday. I keep a travel size version in my purse too. Very warm and classic, but also refreshing. Doesn't give me a headache either, as most scents do for me.
Love this beauty bar. I used to waste so much money trying new facial cleansers, but my derm recommended I try this. I used to have mild acne and my skin became quite sensitive. Dove works wonders for me - it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin and works well to cleanse my face. It doesn't break out my skin and my combo skin doesn't feel dry either. Plus, doubles as a body wash - although I use a seperate bar.
I always have this on hand. I love applying it to my lips. It's super soft and moisturizing and has a sutle scent. Hate the damn tin though - it can be such a pain to get open sometimes.
Such a classy fragrance and an adorable bottle. My go to scent - have yet to find a fragrance I like better.
