I bought this bronzer in light (I'm fair) on Amazon last week and it finally arrived yesterday. I used it today for the first time and I really like it. This matte bronzer is perfect for contouring and blends very well. My ELF brush picks up the product very well, but I don't feel like I am using too much like with other bronzers. I am going to keep using this and hope that I continue to love it.
Gels/Soaps -Yardley - Natural Oatmeal & Almond Moisturizing Soap

Mmmm...I love the way this stuff smells and I love that it gently exfoliates. It's my absolute favorite soap.
Lotions/ Creams -Unlisted Brand - April Bath & Shower/Coconut Body Cream

I found this at the Dollar Tree and was very pleasantly surprised by it. It smells really nice and the scent isn't overly strong. The body cream moisturizes very well and lasts for several hours. I keep one in my purse and another in my bathroom for after showers.
Mascara -Bare Escentuals - Flawless Definition mascara
AmandaRose83 11/11/2012 1:13:00 PM
I received this mascara as a birthday gift from Bare Minerals. I usually like drug store mascaras over dept. store and higher end ones. But this one is actually pretty awesome. It separates and defines my lashes and helps lengthen them. The only thing I wish it did was add some volume (that's why I marked it at 4 lippies). But I use ELF's mascara primer for that. The mascara does not clump or flake during the day. And it lasts until I take it off at night. I will definitely purchase this for myself when it runs out.
I have not tried this blush on myself. But I did use it when I did my cousin's makeup. She has a medium-tan skin tone and this color was absolutely gorgeous on her. It has a pretty, but not overwhelming shimmer to it and the color is a warm mauve color.
Hands down, this is my absolute favorite make up brush. Who would have thought a $3 brush could do such an amazing job? I love this brush more than the Bare Minerals brushes that came with the kit. It retains its shape and never sheds - even after washing. I own 2 - 1 for liquid make up and the other for my mineral foundations. When I use liquid foundation, it glides the makeup on and makes it look beautiful. It give an almost airbrushed quality to it. With mineral foundation, the brush picks up just the right amount of powder. It buffs and blends the powder perfectly. I will definitely purchase again if I need to.

I liked this brush...until I washed it! When I washed it, I follow Bare Minerals directions. Now it feels like it has zero density and it sheds a bit. I like my ELF Studio brushes much better than this expensive one. =/
Makeup Brushes -Bare Escentuals - Maximum Coverage Concealer Brush
AmandaRose83 9/28/2012 6:38:00 PM
This is the only brush from the Bare Minerals starter kit that I like and continue to use. It's the perfect amount of softness and provides just the right amount of coverage. It's perfect for blending everything.
I was walking around the makeup section at Target looking at different blushes. I am usually not a big fan of Rimmel, but I stopped to look anyway. Santa Rose immediately caught my eye. It looked like such a pretty color in the pan. I like lighter colored blushes that give off a light flush on the cheek vs. darker ones. So I was little worried about the color being too dark, but decided to give it a try. I am so glad I did. This color is absolutely beautiful! It gives a perfect flush of natural color and adds definition to the cheeks. This is definitely my go-to for blush from now on!
Treatments -Garnier - Sleek and Shine Moroccan Sleek Oil Treatment
AmandaRose83 9/25/2012 6:35:00 PM
I bought Moroccan oil a few weeks ago. I was a little skeptical, but gave it a shot anyway. I am so glad I did! My hair is so much smoother and manageable. I have hardly any frizz, even in the humidity this morning. And it feels healthier than it has in months. It works very nicely with wet hair and dry. I will definitely buy this again. Update 9/28: I got caught in a bit of rain today and my hair is still sleek and smooth. LOVE this product!
I heard about this face mask here on MakeupAlley and after reading the reviews, I had to give it a try. I am sooooo glad I did! I love it. My skin looks so beautiful after using it. My pores are minimized and the breakouts I get before my period have really minimized!
This is a great brush by E.L.F. So soft and never sheds, even after washing! It is one the small side. So I tend to use it for highlighting and contouring.
Makeup Brushes -E.L.F. - Studio Line Small Smudge Brush
AmandaRose83 8/21/2012 6:34:00 PM
I use the brush for applying eyeliner. It is very similar to the precision brush, just a bit smaller and denser. I like to use this brush for a smaller eye line and the precision for a larger line. Just another great brush by E.L.F.
Just another one of my favorite brushes by E.L.F! I use it for blush, bronzer, mineral foundation, and blending/buffing. It works well for every use. The bristles are so soft and it never sheds.
I love E.L.F brushes...love them. And this is another brush from E.L.F that works great. It grabs eyeshadow very well and blends color perfectly. It's the perfect brush for the crease of my eyelid and I will never go back to any other applicator.
