I lovelovelove this moisturizer! I have sensitive/ breakout prone skin so I take great caution when choosing a moisturizer because the wrong one will make me break out like crazy. Thi has SPF in it which is awesome for defending those wrinkles and dark spots. I love that this has a really clean smell to it, it's so subtle that it kind of is fragrance free. I apply this to my face in the morning and let it soak in for a couple minutes and then begin my foundation, etc. This is a great product and I buy these at Costco for realy cheap haha.
I bought this Kat Von D liquid eyeliner in Love Metal, which is a silver color. This goes on great and stays on throughout the night. I bought this on a whim one day at Sephora and I ended up loving it! Since it's silver and contains glimmer, I don't use it that often. This really isn't for a day look. But when the weekend rolls around this is great to experiment with. The light reflects well off this and gives your eyes that touch of sparkle. I get a lot of compliments with this eyeliner. And I'd like to try Kat Von D's other products now that I like this one so much.

Once again, a Benefit employee threw this product at me (not literally) so I was kind of forced to buy it :/ The color is really pigmented, which is nice. The color reminds me of a darker, more intense version of MAC's Satin Taupe eyeshadow. I just hate the smell of this creme eyeshadow. Maybe my nose is too sensitive or something but I really can't stand the smell. The little birds on the packaging is cute but I think I'll stick to other eyeshadows.
I think I bought this last summer because Benefit claimed it to be the "foundation faker." I actually love the texture of this foundation faker. It's very creamy yet sets as a powder on my face. I recently stopped using this because well, I discovered Bare Minerals. But this was great for touching up throughout the day and also great for those hot, humid summer days when you just don't want much on your face. This is also great for beach days or lounging out by the pool.
I absolutely loveeeee this product! I get my brows professionally threaded every couple of weeks. I use this to make my eyebrows look naturally perfect. This gives just the right amount of color and fill to really make my eyebrows stand out (in a good way). I always say that eyebrows fame your face, and this is the best product to help your brows do that.
The only reason I purchased this blush is because a Benefit employee practically forced it on me. I was a bit worried about how "rosy" this would look on me. But I actually ended up liking the bronzing/blushing effect of this. The packaging is super cute and I don't know why but to me this smells good haha. Another good thing is that there is a lot of product. I bought this a while ago and I still have a lot left. This is definitely an underrated product. Benefit's Hoola gets a lot of attention but I think this is a nice bronzer/blush, if that's the kind of thing you're looking for.
This is my HG drugstore mascara. It gives volume and length, naturally. But for a dramatic effect, all you have to do is add a couple of coats. Love this mascara!
This mascara did nothing for my lashes. It barely lengthens and does not do ANYTHING for volume. Definitely not re-purchasing.

one of the best drugstore mascaras. it does a great job of curling and lengthening. kinda skimps out on the volume but one of my favorite drugstore mascaras.

smells amazing, like vanilla but not too overpowering. it gives great shine without being too sticky. and the color complements lips so well. a bit pricey but definitely worth it.
i got a free mini sample of hypnose. i love that my lashes look clean and separated after i use it. but it doesn't give me the volume i want. it does a great job of lengthening and gives a bit of volume. this is a mascara i'd recommend using in the daytime-- for work or school. definitely not good if you want dramatic, look-at-me lashes.

my favorite eyeliner. it's so creamy and goes on smooth. i took one lippie off because it smudges after a couples hours of partying.
i LOVELOVELOVE this perfume. it smells amazingly sweet and girls, but not overly floral or sickly. i always recieve compliments whenever i wear this perfume.

kind of pricey but i love the smell and the way it makes my face look fresh. i have medium skin and this doesn't show up on my face but it does add sparkle. it's a great highlighter just make sure not to apply it everywhere because it is sparkly
