Lip Treatments -Mary Kay - Satin Lips mask and balm

This is definitely a HG product. I LOVE both of these products. The lip mask works really well at sloughing away dead skin and giving your lips a smooth finish. The balm is very moisturizing. It can be a little thick, so I have to wipe off the excess before applying lipstick. However, I have used the balm over my favorite lip liner (Benefit - Smolder) to create a really sheer pretty sheen. The new tube for the balm is easier to apply, but the balm feels a little thinner. The jar version (the old version) was thicker and I liked it much better.
This is my go-to product for leave in conditioner. The smell is light and fresh and doesn't interfere with other products. This is the first product that I use in my hair routine. I definitely prefer products that spray on like this one and it leaves my hair feeling very silky and tames fly-aways.
This is my HG foundation. It is super sheer and just basically evens out skin tone. It goes on really smooth and never looks cakey. It gives a nice dewy finish - and doesn't appear to matte. A light dusting of powder to set it in the a.m. leaves my skin dewy and shine-free all day.
At first I wasn't very impressed with this foundation. It went on really cakey when I used a sponge to apply it. And by mid morning my face was super shiny - even on my cheeks, which tend to be fairly dry. I highly recommend using a foundation brush to apply this. With a foundation brush I'm able to get a flawless smooth finish. And I just use a light dusting of powder to set it in the a.m. and I don't need to reapply ALL DAY. The key to this one is putting it on very thinly. It's still not my absolute favorite, but it's pretty close.
Blush -MAC - Sheertone Shimmer Blush in Plum Foolery

Of all my blushes, I think this one is my #2. I love that it goes on very sheer so that I can layer it to the effect that I want. I really like the packaging because it's not wasteful, and is easy to take on the go.
Blush -Lancome - Blush Subtil Shimmer--Shimmer Pink Pool

Shimmer Pink Pool looks WAY bright in the package, but goes on really sheer. It definitely brightens up my face. It's more of a summer color to me - and I usually wear it only in the evening because it has the shimmer/glitter finish.
I heart this Stila Lillium Convertible Color. The creamy formula is easy to blend and leaves a dewy finish without being shimmery or cakey. Other cream blushes that I've tried have been almost like paste - so this creamy texture is AMAZING. The color looks great on my fair/medium skin. (I'm totally pastey in the winter and almost olive in the summer)
