Moisturizers -DDF - Ultra Lite Oil-Free Moisturizing Dew

Changing my review-- I loved this for a while but it broke me out. I stopped, tried again, stopped, tried again but it continued to break me out :(
The best facial sunscreen, period. Non-greasy, non-comodogenic, goes on so well, dries quickly. And you can't beat SPF 25! Wonderful stuff!
Sage Grains are wonderful, gentle exfoliators. They do not irritate the skin at all. The regular are perfect for my oily skin- just a soft, gentle exfoliation to get the gunk out of my skin!
This is the best facial cleanser I have ever used. It lathers well and takes off all my makeup, even mascara, without irritating or stripping. It's unscented which is also a bonus. I have oily skin and this does not break me out or dry me out. It is very expensive but worth it!
This is my favorite shower gel. I love using it with the bar soap and lotion-- smells fantastic! A beautiful, fresh sweet lemon that isn't cloying or overpowering. The only reason I took off one lipstick is because it's in a glass bottle. Come on Fresh, glass bottles in the shower? Isn't that a broken bottle, cracked tub, injured foot and a lawsuit waiting to happen?
Lotions/ Creams -Fresh - Sugarbath Body Lotion in Lemon

Lemon is my favorite of the three Sugarbath scents. It is fresh and sweet, but not cloying or overpowering. The lotion is very expensive at $30, but is very moisturizing and the scent lasted almost all day on me.
Conditioner -Fresh - Pomegranate Conditioning Hair Rinse

The only reason I am giving this a "3" is because it smells so fantastic. I agree with the other reviewer- you need another conditioner and then put this on top to make your hair smell so divine. Putting this on my hair was like putting water on it- it didn't do anything bad, but it didn't do anything good either. I didn't notice any difference. But the smell!
This shampoo did nothing for my fine to medium straight, long hair. The only pro I have is that it smells fantastic- fresh and citrusy. But, it's so expensive! $22 for 10 oz is insane. And it didn't do anything for me at all.
This is a wonderful brush. It's perfect for liquid foundations- it makes my foundation look smoother and more even. The brush is very easy to use and clean and is the perfect size. Everyone who wears liquid fouation should get one of these!
Rose Flash isn't really rosy- it's more of a non-shimmery peachy pink. I really like Stila's push up blushes- they are less emmolient than the convertible colors and stay on very well. The applicator is deodorant style which is very convenient. Rose flash is a great flush for my warm toned skin!
Syrup is a great, sheer mauve with a touch of pink. It's glossy and makes your lips look full and beautiful.
Hug Me looks like an ugly peachy nude taupe color in the tube but goes on a great peachy nude with a touch of pink. Definitely your lips but better! It makes my lips look full, natural and slightly glossy. Definitely a keeper!
Eyeliner -Sue Devitt - Eye Intensifier in Tanzania

Tanzania is a beautiful bronzey brown. I was skeptical about such a chubby pencil because I do not like thick lines, but this makes a wonderful, smooth line. It has a smudger on the other end that is very nice as well. This is the smoothest eye pencil I have ever tried, and it lasts all day! Can't wait to try more!
Becca's Cheek Tint only comes in Berry, which is unfortunate for warm-toned gals because the consistency is great. It comes in a very small pot (same size as the samples of loose shimmer powder) but a little goes a long way. It is very sheer and leaves a nice stain. I couldn't wear the berry because it was too cool-toned which is why I took away one lipstick. I hope she makes more colors!
I am a Cashmere in the LSC and wear Sesame. This powder is very finely milled and disappears into the skin, but does nothing to control oilies... I removed one lipstick because of this. Becca claims that it will set makeup for 12-24 hours... I've never tried it for that long but I still have to blot and touch up, this isn't a seal or anything. Nice powder, not miraculous.
