My boyfriend and I LOVE these strips. kinda gross, but it is so fun to see what comes out lol. and I love the clean feeling my face has after using.
This truly is my HG mascara. The brush really lengthens the tips of my lashes and I have an easy time separating the lashes. I have bought so many tubes of this I seriously can't even begin to guess a number1
Purple is my color. I look good in all purples. And I love wearing black nail polish. This is the best of both worlds. It is such a beautiful deep purple. The quality of the formula is wonderful, as is usually the case with OPI. I haven't met an OPI nail polish that I didn't like
I don't really like eye liner, this is one of the few that I own. It is long lasting and I like that it isnt the blackest black because I am always afraid of having raccoon eyes when I wear eyeliner
Styling Products -TRESemme - Instant Heat Tamer Spray

There is no need to buy a pricey heat protectant because Tresemme really did a great job with this one! It sprays a nice fine mist that coats hair evenly so you are not waiting for patchy wet spots to dry. I love love love the smell!
LOVE! so glad this is alcohol based, it significantly cuts down the dry time when compared to when you deep clean your brushes. Also, I kind of enjoy the smell.. odd, I know lol. I love cleaning my brushes, and this definitely gets the job done well.
Misc Beauty Tools -E.L.F. - Mechanical Eyelash Curler

This is a very poor quality curler. I used this years ago, before I decided to finally spend the money on a decent curler. Now I know why they're more expensive. Buy a MAC curler, it is worth the extra money. the ELF curler is awkward to hold, feels like its going to fall apart, and the pad needed to be replaced within a month. don't waste your money.
I think the packaging of this product looks super cute but its quality isn't the greatest. I can't specifically pin point why I didn't care much for this mascara, but I will say that there are much better drugstore brands out there.

I LOVE HEAVENLY!!! I am 21 years old and this has been my go-to perfume since middle school. It truly is my my favorite scent. I have been through bottles and bottles and bottles of this. If this were to be discontinued, I would probably buy a whole paychecks worth to have for myself.
Treatments -Burt's Bees - Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream

I work part time in an office (I am a college student) and I file tons of paperwork. as a result I have really beat up cuticles, they peel and they get dry. I love this because it has made them noticeably more healthy looking. The downside is the greasy-ness, which I expected but it is still not fun to put little smudgy finger prints on everything after you use this product lol. also, sometimes I have a hard time getting the lid off.
This came in a bare escentuals limited edition set I got off of QVC. I probably wouldn't have bought it on my own. It is helpful when I feel like my face is starting to get a shine. I tend to use it mostly in the t-zone. I don't think there is really anything special about it though.
Powder -Bare Escentuals - Bare Minerals in 1.2, fairly light

I really don't like a product that gives full coverage, as I feel my skin looks half decent on its own. I LOVE this product because you can build coverage or keep it very light. It feels nice on my skin, after I buff it on I don't get a cake-y disgusting feeling. Also, it lasts FOREVER!! my mom got me a second for Christmas and I still havent opened it because it is taking forever to polish off my first one which I have had for over a year!
I LOVE this product. It works wonderfully even if I put it on my already styled hair. I do find that my hair gets used to it after a while, but if I give it a break and come back to it, it works like magic. Now I am in the habit of using this for "special occasions", this way I can always rely on it to work perfectly :]
I like this color a lot, and it is CG so the quality is great. Cremes are my favorite polish finish, I love the way it looks on, I guess I am just not really in to wearing "tiffany blue".

I have bounced between multiple quick dry top coats and always come back to this. I love the shine
