Powder -Merle Norman - Luxiva Ultra Powder Foundation

I really like this foundation. It makes both foundation and powder in one step! No SPF though which kinda sucks. Great coverage. (About medium) and buildable without getting too cakey. For $25-30, it truly is worth it!
A very good bb cream. Doesn't appear to have any "sparkles" in it unlike the foundation. Very blendable but a dewy to a very dewy finish. You would definitely want to set this bb cream with a powder or at least set the t-zone. Okay color selection but terrible selection for those with darker skin tones. Around 8-10 dollars so not the most expensive or cheapest bb cream around. Love the SPF 30. My only complaint is the dewy finish because you can't just apply the bb cream and go. Still, a great drugstore bb cream which is no surprise since its Revlon's.
Of course this is the 40 year classic pink and green Great Lash mascara. This is a better version in my opinion. The brush grabs every single lash without clumps and volumizes and lengthens them. The packaging is cute and I love the formula. Great mascara.
I love this! I have to say I love it more than Revlon's Colorburst Lip Butter. Revlon's is more shiny and not as much color. This lipstick makes lips feel very smooth with nice color with a touch of shine. The packaging is so cute and looks very modern. Smells like sweet cotton candy too! A very nice lipstick to have.
Lip Gloss -L'Oreal - Colour Riche Caresse Wet Shine Stain

This is a nice lip gloss stain. The gloss doesn't last though, and it's not very sticky when it sets either. It comes in a nice arrange of colors and goes on smoothly. I love the sleek and gold packaging. The applicator is doe foot and makes application easy. When applying, the product feels light and wet with a cool touch to it, but not at all cold. This does last for quite a bit. I highly recommend this to anyone! It's definitely worth it's pricey amount.
Pressed Powders -Revlon - Nearly Naked Pressed Powder

I really like this powder. The packaging is so cute and the mirror is over the puff so the powder doesn't make it messy like usual powders are. Leaves a soft matte finish that lasts.
Lipstick -L'Oreal - Infallible Never Fail Lipstick

This is such a cute lip color. It comes in an adorable little compact with a built in mirror. It also includes both the color and the balm. The color lasts ALL day, with a little help from the conditioning glossy balm. A bit pricey but it's worth it. A nice color range, but some more pinks wouldn't hurt. Hibiscus is a cute color I like, kind of like a lighter magenta. I recommend this to everyone who wants a very long lasting lip color!
This foundation is VERY nice and also affordable. I don't really care for cream foundations after trying Maybelline's Dream Smooth Mousse, which totally oxidized on me! I really do like Cover Girl Foundations so I wanted to try this out because a compact foundation would be very nice on the go. This creme is very easy to blend and has the same array of shades that Cover Girl's other foundations have. If you have used a foundation from Cover Girl that matched you, you can choose another foundation, like this one in the same color you have been using. This compact in slim and nice and the sponge is okay. But the sponge is very cheap so it will most likely break after some uses. A sponge is the key tool to cream foundations though, which is why Cover Girl sells a separate pack of 3 sponges to refill if needed. This has a nice powdery finish to it, so you can skip the setting step, but you can if you want. This foundation has light to medium to full coverage, depending on how you you build it. Overall, this is a great foundation for at home, and/or on the go!
Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion

This lotion is great. The only bad thing I have to say about it is that it can make your face look a bit oily. But I wear it at night after I wash my face so I really don't mind. The yellow helps even out your skin tone gradually as you use it and I've noticed, that I have fewer breakouts and pimples than when I first started to use it. Probably because of a nice skin routine that cleanses your skin well. I highly recommend this for anyone because Clinique has different formulas for different skin types.
I love this blush! This was the first blush I have ever owned and I just bought it recently. I forgot how nice Cheekers Blush is. It stays on all day and gives a non-glittery pop of color. Classic Pink is a nice flirty color and is very girly/feminine. The blush has kind of an old ladyish perfume to it but you can't really smell it after you put it on. Highly pigmented and an adorable color!
Mascara -Cover Girl - Lash Blast Fusion water resistant
Babymutt01 3/27/2013 8:26:00 PM
I was pleasantly surprised by this mascara. Since my lashes are short, volumizing mascara can make them look stumpy and sometimes clumpy. This mascara claimed to lengthen them and volumize them. I was sold by the lengthening claim to it and tried it out. It made my lashes long and thick! Since it's waterproof, it held the curl and didn't really smudge under my eye. Lash Blast Fusion is definitely a great mascara to have!
This is a very great foundation. The price is VERY affordable and has a really nice formula. No SPF and no fragrance! Also oil free! The finish is almost powdery and can look just a hint dewy. The packaging is okay. Not the WORST no pump foundation. The bottle's triangular shape makes it easy to hold and tap out. The foundation itself is kind of like a creamy liquid so it' s pretty hard to get too much on your hand. Blends easily and lasts. Light-Medium coverage and nicely buildable. This is a great foundation for anyone!
Pressed Powders -Cover Girl - Clean pressed powder - Sensitive skin
Babymutt01 3/26/2013 6:48:00 PM
This is an overall nice setting powder. It creates a nice finish and has no smell. This does have good pigmentation and does not look cakey. This is a nice setting powder to have.
I really do love this blush. Why all the negative reviews??? The Fit Me blush is VERY pigmented and looks good with all skin types, especially this color. Medium Pink is so nice and flirty. You can take just a bit for a natural pop of color and also build it up for more definition. A cute girly natural pink color.
This is an okay blush to have around. A bit too glittery for me but I like the pigmented color. Very sparkly but a nice pink color. The sparkle doesn't bother me that much though. A great pretty and flirty color to wear. I did mark down a rating because of two things. The first is ALL the glitter loaded in this blush, and the second is that the E.L.F. Studio Blushes don't come with little applicator brushes. I only use those for touching up, which is very nice. This blush can make a nice eye shadow too. With the glittery pigment and the nice pink it would look very nice as a shadow. Okay blush, but would NOT recommend for older women because of all the glitter. Probably will NOT purchase again!
