I've gone through several bottles of this. I find it keeps my skin clear, acne free, oil free, and dries out my pimples for fast healing. It removes dirt from my pores too. I use this every time in in the shower with hot water. Some people complain about the smell. It smells like soap at a hospital but, I don't mind it. It works and its under ten dollars. I will buy this for the rest of my life.
Eyeliner -Make Up For Ever - Aqua Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil in Mat Black 0L

I always wanted to try this eyeliner but thought 17 bucks was high for a stupid pencil. I went to Sephora and picked up the Best of MUFE kit and I was happy to find the pencil in there. I AM IN LOVE! This is the first liner I can use for tight lining and my water line without it sliding off or ending up all over my face during the day. It quite creamy and easy to get onto the eye. Its still expensive but, its a good product to treat yourself to. One question: Can you sharpen it?
This has been a part of my everyday makeup every single day since I bought it. My skin is so fair it often looks grey and this beauty powder gives me a nice healthy pinky color to my face. I apply it all over with my Elf Studio Powder Brush over my setting powder. Its a lovely color on anybody and the packaging is too cute. It even has a mirror so I take it in my school bag for touch-ups. Love this product. :)
Pressed Powders -E.L.F. - Translucent Mattifying Powder
Roxxy6341 1/28/2010 10:35:00 PM
AT first, I was in love with this product. My skin is oily and I used to live in south Florida where its humid as heck. I bought this product, loved it and used it until I hit pan and moved on to other products. I just recently started using it up again and I find its extreamly cakey and makes me look chalky. The sponge that came with it...fell apart in my hand. Litteraly. Anyway, I may just take the rest of the product out and use the compact for something else because it really is a nice compact.
This is the best blending brush I ever used. Invest in MAC brushes, they are amazing. If you don't want to spend full price look at CCO, I got my 217 there. Anywhoo, love the brush. It picks up the color well, and its not too short or too long.
Misc Beauty Tools -E.L.F. - Mechanical Eyelash Curler
Roxxy6341 1/28/2010 10:24:00 PM
I liked this eyelash curler...a lot. Maybe because I have never used one before, I didn''t know what to expect but, for the price its beast.
I have used this product since my mom convinced me to buy it at Sephora when I was 11 years old. This worked for me as a light foundation and covered up my light bumps and zits. Now I use it as a light setting powder and and sometimes as a throw on and go powder. Whats good about this product is that its translucent, works amazing for multiple things and, when put on at night, clears your skin of blemishes (mineral power). I advise buying the large size because it will last you at least a year if used everyday.
I bought this at TJ Maxx for .99 cents. I loved the color for a real long time. Its not my go to color anymore but its quite nice. Its a frost finish and you need two to three coats to get the lilac effect. I think its quite pretty because the shimmers look nice in the light. I dont recomend this product anymore because its a very old color and paying $15 bucks on Ebay is not worth it.
This is the best pink nail polish I own. Im not a big fan of nail polish with a frost finish like this but, the color is beautiful on my skin. I have short nails and I keep coming back to this polish for my everyday color. The best color payoff is with two coats. I love OPI. It stays on forever but chips a bit when used without a top coat.
I really like this product. I bought the concealer duo (custard/ginger) and custard works perfectly for my NW20 skin. It has really nice staying power and covers everything I need to cover up (dark circles, blemishes, and pimple scars) and its not cakey. I use this for: Concealing, shadow base, and to put around my eyes to look more awake. The only con is the price. Its a bit steep for what it does. For 22 bucks its kinda expensive but, it works and I think its money well spent.
This product has no cons at all for me. It matches my brow color, has great pigmentation, doesn't smudge, stays all day. Love this product and will buy for the rest of my life.
Lip Treatments -MAC - Hello Kitty -- Popster Tinted Lip Conditioner
Roxxy6341 1/28/2010 7:40:00 PM
Let me just say, the packaging is adorable! It has a Hello Kitty print right on the top and even the box is worth saving! This was the first lip conditioner I ever bought. I picked it up at CCO because my lips were really chapped that day and i'm a sucker for cute packaging. Pros - Sheer (Thats good because its a bright HOT pink.) -Moisturizing. It keeps my lips nice and conditioned. - Smells really good. (Its smells like chocolate ice cream from Brewsters) Cons -Its a bit bright for my personal taste. I deffanitly will try other colors.
Eye Shadow -MAC - Paint Pot in Artifact [DISCONTINUED]
Roxxy6341 1/28/2010 7:33:00 PM
I love this Paint pot! I use paint pots for pretty much everything. This one I was eagar to try because of the cranberry color. I have to say, this makes a beautiful base for dark browns and dark colored eyeshadows. Its super creamy and I find it doesn't crease. Its blendable and highly pigmented. The cons are the packaging. Because its glass its breakable and every time I take it with me for travel I make sure its safely wrapped. All in all this is a super duper product and it works with all skin tones. (I am yellow-fair and it looks great on me and one of my friends who has deep brown skin looks great with it on too)
I really like this lipgelee. Ive never bought one before and while I was at MAC I swatched the color and thought it was gorgeous! Pros -Super glittery -Goes with any lipstick or by its self -not sticky -Good staying power The only con is that its a limited edition and once its gone you'll have to buy it at CCO. I love this lipgelee. If you never have tried one, go pick up this one. Its a good starter color.
The reason I bought this product was because it had been getting a lot of hype. I like nude lipsticks and I thought i'd give this a try. Pros: - Nice color pigmentation - Smooth and blendable - Overall a nice lipstick The only con was that it didn't cover my lips all the way and you could see the darker part of my lips inside. Another thing was, you can NOT put lipgloss over this product, it will unstick your lipstick.
