I'm always in search of dewy foundations that don't make my skin look oily after a while. This foundation gives a nice, subtle glow and people definitely notice it. Ever since the chanel teint innocence compact was discontinued, this foundation is the closest match to it. The only problem I have with it is the coverage. If you're looking for something to cover any scars, etc then this really won't do you any good. And the smell is pretty strong, almost resembles and old lady's perfume, but of course it goes away after you apply it. Overall this is great for dry skin and honestly I don't have to moisturize my skin as much because of how moisture rich this foundation is. Because it's in a glass bottle, I am a little worried about dropping it because of how clumsy I am.
So I am usually not a fan of highlighters because it always emphasizes my large pores but this one looked lovely on my skin. Very sheer and subtle and it grows great with a natural look or if you want your blush to pop.
This is great peachy pink lipstick that looks really good on my tan skin. It's great for a natural look, not too vibrant like mac's lipstick so it's accessible for everyday use.
This concealer would be lovely if it could actually last more than an hour without caking it on. Be careful with how much you put because it can become so fake you actually look scary.

This product is AMAZING. I have wasted money on so many hair oils and leave in conditioners to tame my dry, damaged, and tangled hair and this was it. I can honestly run my fingers through my hair and barely feel any knots. It isn't greasy for my hair but I guess it's because I don't use that much. But be careful when pouring it out because a little squeeze can give you a little too much oil.

If you're looking for something to fix your dry, damaged hair from styling tools, this is the wrong product. It kept my hair soft for about 30 minutes. It made no difference in my hair and I regret buying this.
If your hair is already dry and damaged, this really won't do much. I have normal wavy hair and this didn't do anything for softness or tame my frizz. It really didn't make a difference in my hair, wet or dry
Lotions/ Creams -Unlisted Brand - EXTRA VIRGIN Coconut Oil (All brands)

Okay so I've been using coconut oil since I was 7 since I'm south asian (Bangladesh, right next to india). This a great conditioner for hair and I love how soft and healthy my hair feels even though I damage it all the time with a straightener. But you do not need to spend more than $7 on this, you can get real coconut oil at Indian or middle eastern stores with the brand name as Parachute, in a blue bottle. I get mine for about $5 but that's the big ones.
I love that it seperated my lashes and doesn't clump. But it doesn't really hold a curl that well but my lashes still look nice. I put another mascara over it and it looks amazing.
Okay so this mascara is great for parties and special events. I love how this mascara gives thickness and length to my already long lashes. I don't know how it would work on smaller lashes, but I did like this. This does kind of clump a bit, but I put a small coat of another mascara and then apply this and it comes out great.
Coming from a girl with naturally long lashes, I didn't find this amazing. It was pretty good, and did add length but it wasn't really thickening. I would recommend this for an everyday look for girls with long lashes that have a slight curl like mine.
Okay so I tried the mini version of this because the tube it came in was absolutely adorable. I loved the design on it haha, but anyways, I found this mascara to be alright. I mean it did give length and a bit of thickness, but I felt it would be better for an everyday look. Not something you would want to wear on a night out. Even though they claim it'll give a "diva look." I do like that it's alcohol free, and it's supposed to condition lashes because it has some type of oil in it. They have more info about it on the Sephora website. Overall, it's a good mascara but I think my drugstore mascaras can do the same. But, my lashes are naturally curled so I was looking for something more intense. I would suggest you to TRY IT out first though, because it'll probably look good on others without a natural curl to their lashes.
This mascara has a lot of hype so I went to sephora today to try it. I can honestly say that drugstore mascaras can do the same thing. It does curl lashes nicely but it doesn't give much thickness. It's good for a natural look I guess, but I think it's too natural.

This is great for dry skin! I love how I can use it by itself or put it over my foundation. I think this is probably the only powder I like that didn't make me look dry or powdery. It has good coverage concealing impurities well, and lasts long on my skin too. I'm more of a creme or liquid foundation type person but this is perfect for dry skin!

I feel like this could be good for oily skin because I really didn't like it. It gave me a powdery finish or really didn't make a difference in my skin. I wish it could've worked for me, I heard it was good for dry skin. Oh well.
