Lip Treatments -Burt's Bees - Pink Grapefruit Refreshing Lip Balm

I don't like the original Burt's Bees lip balm. I find it way too waxy, not moisturizing at all. This balm is slick and buttery and lasts a while on my lips. I also really like the grapefruit scent.
Blush -Milani - Minerals Blush - 203 - Mai Tai [DISCONTINUED]

After reading raves and reviews on MUA for this blush I had to check it out for myself at CVS. I have already tried Luminous and it didn't work at all. I was kind of shocked at how bright this blush looked in its container and almost didn't buy it, but I remember other pale girls on here saying it worked for them. Let me just say for me this is a HG for me. I love the color it produces on my cheeks because it looks like a natural look and has very little shimmer.
Mascara -Cover Girl - Professional Super Thick Lash Mascara

In the past 6 months I have spent hundreds of dollars to find the right mascara. I have naturally curly lashes but they are quite light. I also have a problem (even with waterproof mascara) that it smudges under my eyes after a few hours. I'm not sure why because I only use it on my top lashes. Anyway, I decided to pick up this mascara while at Target. It was just $5 and I liked the simple red tube and straight brush. I found it easy to apply to my lashes and it didn't clump at all. It gave them lots of volume and made them nice and dark. I was impressed. The real test was to see if it would smudge. Well it didn't at all! I wore it all day and even through a short nap and there were no smudges! I love this stuff.
I love the color of this in the pan but once I applied it to my skin it looks awful. It is just shimmery gold. I don't see and pink or peach, just gold. I won't be buying again. Maybe I got a bad batch??
I have sensitive skin that is acne prone and I have used so many moisturizers over the years and wasted lots of money. Most lotions are too oily or no moisturizing enough, but this products works so well for me. I have been using it for several months and I haven't broke out from it. I love this stuff, I just wish I had found it sooner!
My husband bought me this for Christmas and I was a little worried because I'm not really a fan of Calvin Klein perfumes, but I love this. It's a simple flowery clean perfume. I find it very pretty and easy to wear. It fits me perfectly. I would definitely buy this again.
I got this lip balm as part of the Holiday 2010 trio that they bring out every year. This is my favorite flavor by far. I am already a huge fan of all the Jack Black lip balms, but this flavor is so fresh and tasty. I hope they keep this as part of their permanent line!
Styling Products -Unlisted Brand - L.A. Looks - Curl Look Frizz Control Gel

I have been trying to embrace my naturally wavy/curly hair. It's very thick and frizz prone. For a long time I have been straightening it to smooth out the frizz. I brought this gel last week and it is great. I wash my hair, apply the gel and either let it dry naturally or diffuse it depending on the time. It makes my hair wavy and frizz free and it never flakes. The best part is that it was $2 for a giant bottle.
Pressed Powders -Hard Candy - Welcome Matte Mattifying Powder

I had been using MAC Blot and Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse powders before this. I picked it up on a whim at Walmart and I love it. It controls oil very well, is never cakey and doesn't break me out at all!
I wanted to like this product and I bought it based on the reviews here. It felt very nice and smooth on my skin and I noticed that my skin wasn't as oily or shiny at the end of the day. The problem was I woke up the next day with a face of clogged pores. I know this primer was the culprit. I guess it's all the silicones in it. So disappointing.
I love this stuff. I use it twice a day after cleansing, wait 10 minutes and then apply oil free lotion. My face has never looked better. When I first started it I had some mild tingling and redness on my chin area, but after a few days it didn't happen anymore. I think that this has helped regulate the oil on my face, I don't seem to get nearly as oily as I used to. I also find that it helps minimize pimples and heal them quicker.
Pressed Powders -Maybelline - Dream Matte Pressed Powder

I am on my second container of this. It's a basic, simple powder that keeps me matte all day. I have trouble with breaking out from powders and this one hasn't done that. I apply with a kabuki brush.
I have found recently that tubing mascaras are the only ones that don't irritate my eyes or smudge. I have used the L'oreal one too. I love this one the most. It doesn't clump, is easy to remove and makes my lashes look natural but 'done'. Will definitely repurchase.
I bought this at Marshalls for $15 based on some of the reviews here...I like it...sort of...my husband said "Wow, you smell like mens shaving cream"....I haven't worn it since : )
I got this in Vanilla Frosting...it's a subtle scent....the texture is amazing and makes my lips so soft....I love the small squeeze tube.....fits in my pocket perfectly....
