Moisturizers -Olay - Regenerist Deep Hydration Regenerating Cream

I'm in my early 30's but I've always been told by my mother when I was young to start using face creams in your 20's and 30's since its easier to prevent aging rather than reverse it (of course none of us can escape it)! I have oily skin, but I decided to use this since Olay has always had good reviews and they never promiss you miracles, but this face cream lotion does make my skin feel very nice. I use it at night, but my skin feels much more hydrated and I havn't noticed any breakouts. I have not been using it for more than a few weeks so far, but will edit if I see anything new. So far so good because it soaks into your skin without feeling greasy, or oily. :) It's great for winter especially and my face does feel much better.
Primer/ Corrector -Revlon - PhotoReady Perfecting Primer (color 001)

I really like this primer! For those with oily skin, this one may really help keep that good matte look. It's smooth, goes on silky, and drys fast, and really does minimize my pores! My makeup really does look better when I use this first underneath. The price is about almost $14 where I live, but to me very worth it. :) I actually love mixing this one with a tiny bit of VS PRO Airbrush FX Illumiating Primer (from Victoria's secret) and its a perfect combo before using mineral powder, liquid foundation or with just bronzer powder and blush!
Liquid -Maybelline - SuperStay Makeup - New Version

This is not a bad foundation...but the fact that to me (with oily skin), it is not a super staying power. Revlon Color stay and Estee Lauder Double Wear are both trully "staying" (even when sweating or even swimming ocassionally). However, this one does NOT come off too fast either, just that I didn't find this one to be long wearing, but it blends very nice and has a nice light coverage that does seem blendable.
YUMMMMM...this is probably one of my favorite smelling shampoos ever!! Smells sooo good! Also makes my hair very soft and shiney! I have had great results with this shampoo.
These are very very looooong wearing and the colors are great (although for brown eyes I actually think the color pots for the "hazel" eyes makes the brown eyes pop more. :) I also use the lavender one as a eye color base when using a pretty purple or lavender eye shawdow. Only complaint-these can dry out FAST if you accidently leave any of the tops off so do not forget to screw them back together and put the caps on, because mine got dryed up too fast sadly.
Self Tanners -SUN Laboratories - Ultra Dark Lotion
beachsexybronze 1/5/2013 1:19:00 PM
Out of any self tanners, this is one of my top favs because it gets me DARK in just one application. One trick to get as dark as possible in just one application is to NOT use any "lotions" on your body before putting this on..including "moisturizing soaps/bodywash", Exfoliate, and scrub scrub scrub (use a mix of brown sugar and honey and a normal NON moisturizing bar soap in the shower) but dont lather yourself with lotions or creams before using this etc..because if you have a layer of something underneath, the self tanner will not be able to soak in and your tan will be too light (unless that is what you want). Only use a tiny bit around your ankles, wrists, elbows, armpit area, and knees, but do not use lotion all over. That way the self tanner will show up even more. I highly recommend this one, and always will. :)
I wanted to love this self tanner, but I didn't see hardly any color once it washed off in the shower the next day (I have been using self tanner since I was 14-in my early 30's now) and it seems that most self tanners keep getting lighter and lighter or you have to use the whole bottle in one application in order to see any real dark color these days. The color guard is nice tho, so this is great as a body bronzer for a day. If you are really pale, this may be good, but if you're someone like me who wants to be dark over night, then this one may disappoint.
LOVE this powder! I'm a sucker for anything bronzey and shimmery! This actually SMELLS sooo good, you are tempted to eat it! But don't! LOL The only small complaint is the powder can be a little too white so if you are trying to acheive a more bronzey shimmer, get the honey one. Overall, this smells sooo good and the shimmer is just absolutely beautiful! Your significant other will love it too ;)
Hair Color -Revlon - Frost & Glow Highlighting Kit
beachsexybronze 1/5/2013 1:03:00 PM
Ive been using this since I was 18 years old (now in my early 30's). This has been the absolute best highlighting kit, that never gives my dark hair brassiness, and always comes out a perfect cool honey blonde, and gets more better everytime I touch it up! I used to paint biolage streaks in my hair using a comb but recently started using the cap, and although it can take a bit long to really get the perfect strands out, it works great everytime. One thing you can do to make sure you get to the root as much as possible is make sure the cap is as tight as you can. *I also use the highlighting cap when wanting to make permanent hair color streaks-works really perfect too! Plus I always worry about the PPD toxic dye touching my scalp, so I sometimes use the highlighting cap and use ALL of the holes and use a permanent hair color, then a week later I then use the highlighting cap for the highlights and only use the "circled" holes. ;)
Excellent. Trully I mean that. If you have oily skin, then I would look no further (Revlon ColorStay is 2nd best to this one as well). This one may be a little tricky when blending (but just use primer and a good sponge) and the coverage is buildible, flawless, matte, and LONG STAYING..actually their first original one "Double MATTE" was the one that for some reason could literally last on your face for 3 days in a row without washing it off! Ha! Seriously tho, for oily ladies like myself, this one is a true miracle worker.
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - PAMELA ANDERSON MALIBU NIGHT PINK
beachsexybronze 1/5/2013 12:51:00 PM
When I first got this a few years ago, I didn't like it, but then while wearing it, I kept wanting to sniff my wrists more and more..there was some sort of mysteriousness to this scent! I thought it smelled too "tea-like", then the drydown became a bit more exotic and could slightly smell the "chocolate" scents and pachulli. I'm normally attracted to sweet vanilla type scents, but this one surely has made me repurchase 4 bottles in the last year! LOL smells that good! The lasting power isnt the best, but better than a lot of others-including her blue one. I just love this one so much! Very sweet but spicy at the same time. Try it.
Eye Primer -Too Faced - Shadow Insurance, Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer
beachsexybronze 1/5/2013 12:48:00 PM
I got this as a sample in one of my Ulta purchases, and I really love the way it feels and how good it blends and does wonders for my eye shadow! Will be buying the full sized one soon! :)
I gave this 3 stars only because I thought these would be more glossy and more moisterizing. Maybe its just the color I got? But as a lipstick, its not bad, I guess I just was hoping for a more glossy texture, as the one I have is dry, and I have to use lipgloss over it alot.
LOVE THIS. Its a perfect very light beige/brownish color with the perfect amount of sheen, without being too shimmery! When I say brown, it is not as brown or bronze as "warmth" but certainly has a very light glowy brown/rose color (but not too light or too dark at all). It just gives your face the perfect amount of beauty without looking like a disco ball.
