BB Cream -Maybelline - Dream Fresh 8-in-1 BB Cream

this is the first non-asian bb cream i tried and its horrible compared to the skinfood bb cream i'm using now. i have oily skin that needs some coverage and this product gives zero coverage, does not even out the redness around my nose and feels oily and heavy after a short while. this is more of a tinted moisturizer i guess, so i don't like it at all as a bb cream. stay away if you have problematic/oily skin.
I usually use more fancy lipbalms (tinted, scented etc.) but this one is always in my makeup bag. It's a great balm to use under lipsticks, moisturizes lips well enough and does not have a disturbing smell. It also does not change the finish of a lipstick so a staple in my bag.
I love this mask. Smells divine and leaves my face really soft. I have oily/acne prone skin and this mask did wonders to me. I got a small size tube in the pomegranate kit I found at Marshalls and I'm definitely gonna give the full size a chance.
Cleansers -Neutrogena - Naturals Cleanser + Makeup Remover

This is a great, very gentle makeup remover. I was looking for a face wash to remove my makeup without drying out my skin and this one exceeded my expectations. I gave 4 lippies because my bottle leaks but other than the packaging issues, I like it.

I don't like this cleanser at all. It's supposed to work for sensitive skin but it's harsh even on my super oily skin. Dries out the skin and causes breakouts. Not recommended!

Aside from the cute package, I really like this BB cream. I have problematic skin (oily and acne prone) and this cream has just enough coverage, keeps shine away especially if you set it with a translucent powder and does not give me any breakouts. I use it for the days when I don't want to wear heavy makeup and love the results so far. I have medium skin and I use the natural beige shade, which appears greyish at first but matches my skin color after a while.
Worst mascara I've ever used! I threw it out after using only once because it clumps, clumps, clumps. I don't recommend it if you want you mascara to separate your lashes.
Lipstick -Avon - Color Trend Kiss 'n' Go Lipstick in Sequin

Amazing rose gold shade, I'm about to finish up my tube and I can honestly say that I love it even though I usually stay away from pinks. Not too drying but I use lip balm before applying the lipstick and it glides on better.
Concealers -Avon - Jillian Dempsey Professional corrector palette

Love this palette and I'm out of the pink and peach shades, and hafway through the yellow one. Too bad it's discontinued because I would buy it again in a heartbeat.
Pressed Powders -Cover Girl - Clean Oil Control Pressed Powder

Clean Oil Control foundation is the worst thing I've ever used but this powder is nice. It doesn't get cakey and prevents shine not all day, but for a fair amount of time. I still have to blot my face throughout the day but I like the finish and the fact that it doesn't give any coverage. Not the best powder but it will do if you have oily skin.
I hate this foundation! I got the one for oily skin and thought it would keep shine away but the product itself is oily and heavy. It made me break out so much that I had to throw it away after third use. The bottle is a joke, you have to shake it hard to get the foundation out and believe me it's messy process. I'm never getting a foundation from this brand again.
