This is my HG foundation and has been so for the last 5 years. I used to use this a lot when I was 15 - 17 because I had some acne on my forehead and chin and this covered up the red spots perfectly without looking cakey, and without causing further breakouts on my skin. After my skin cleared up, I started using tinted moisturizers, but would still use this when I went out at night or when I wanted more coverage. I have clear skin right now thanks to my bcp, and this foundation gives me a sheer to medium coverage, which is exactly what I'm looking for. This foundation gives me a natural finish, which is not too matte or too dewy. I'm NC30 for reference with slight yellow undertones, and I use superbalanced in Cream. Its fragrance free and doesn't clog pores, and It doesn't turn orange throughout the day or make me oily, but maybe that's because I set it with powder. It does, however, rubs off and melts off when I've been sweating a lot. But if I wear a primer underneath, it will stay on. The price is quite reasonable for such a great product, compared with other HE brands, this is one of the cheapest out there. Plus this is supposedly good for your skin because its developed by dermatologists. I've already repurchased twice, and will continue to do so.
I don't use this eyeliner on my top lid, i only use my fluidline or my hip cream liner for that. But MAC smolder is my HG eyeliner for the waterline. It's an intense black, great to wear it with smokey eyes. i've worn this to 6 hours of clubbing, and by the end of the night it's still on my waterline. LOVE IT.

I mainly use this to set my foundation. It gets the job done and at a cheap price too! BOGOF at rite aid for around 6 bucks. i use it with a big powder brush. the color matches me perfectly (transluscent medium) and it doesn't break me out or make me look cakey, and it lasts a long time. definitely buy again if i run out
i love love love love LOVE this mascara, its such a great product for such a cheap price. i got this for 1.99 at my local target and it performs so much better than alot of the drugstore & department store mascaras. i curl my lashes first then use 2 coats of this mascara and i have long, soft, natural, feathery lashes. this mascara holds curls amazingly well and it does not flake AT ALL. i used to use l'oreal voluminous and by the middle of the day i have raccoon eyes. this mascara, however, does not flake even when i rub my eyes. i love how this mascara keeps my lashes soft and i also love how natural this looks on me. the packaging is nice looking, sleek black tube with a christmas tree looking wand. definitely doesnt look like a paid 2 dollars for this baby! the only thing i didnt like about this mascara is the smell.. maybe its just me. lol.
i found my HG mascara! this mascara is GREAT. it darkens, lengthens, and volumizes my lashes. i love it, and i have not experienced any raccoon eyes. and the formula is great, not to runny and not to dry. the brush fibers are very fine to eliminate clumping and it even curled my lashes. i would definitely buy again
Lip Gloss -Victoria's Secret - Beauty Rush Soothing Lip Balm

this is my HG lip balm of all time. it is advertised as a lip balm but it can pass off as a lipgloss. it moisturizes my lips and add a good amount of shine, the smell is amazing too, a nice sweet minty smell, not too strong, not too weak. it may seem like a hassel to use your finger tip to apply but i just go straight from the jar to my lip, weird, but hey, no dirty and sticky fingers!
I love this for setting my CG tinted moisturizer. It gives me the perfect coverage and it mattifies my face very well. It doesn't break me out and I've never experienced any cakiness because I've always applied it with my 187 brush. I really love this product, and would definitely continue to purchase if I run out
i absolutely love this blush! the packaging is a little flimsy but its not a problem because this blush stays on my face for a loonnnng time. this blush has two sections, one is light pink and shimmery, and the other is a beautiful bronze.. none of that orange crap. although the box says to use the two colors separately, i find that to be too streaky and the bronze leaves a "dirty" line on my cheek, so i mix the two colors together with a contour brush and voila! it gives me the perfect amount of color, which is a pinkish bronze, and shimmer on my NC30 skin. and brush the pink in a "C" motion right above my cheekbone and i look well rested and perfectly sunkissed. i love it. even though its a bit princy ($28) its totally worth it, and 10g can last forever
