Pressed Powders -L'Oreal - True Match Super-Blendable Powder

This was terrible. First off, it was $11 for such a small amount of product. I wasn't sure what shade to buy, so I used the "shade selector" transparent guide, lined it up with my wrist color, etc etc. When I tried it the next day, it was extremely orange and blotchy. It went on so thick no matter what I did and TOTALLY wasn't "super blendable". I would never buy this again. Terrible! I'm going back to Neutrogena...
Lotions/ Creams -Vaseline - Sheer Infusion Body Lotion

I love this lotion! I'm a huge lotion junkie, and this is by FAR the best lotion I've EVER tried... and I've tried a lot! I think my favorite is the Mineral Renewal, but I love them all. It absorbs quickly, smells great, and feels great. It makes my skin insanely smooth, and it's GREAT for after a shower. Anyways, I highly recommend it if you don't mind spending a little extra... I think it's worth it :)
Polishes -Sally Hansen - HD Hi-Definition Nail Color in Laser

Wow! This color is gorgeous. It's a VERY sparkly glittery blue in the sunlight, and out of the sunlight, you can see the purple more. It was kind of sheer, so I suggest 3 coats, though. Also, the brush is thick and somewhat stumpy, but in a good way. I HIGHLY recommend this, and I can't wait to try the other shades :D
I use this once a week during my manicure as a base and top coat. It's a GREAT base coat. I tend to have dry nails that chip pretty easily. The times that I forget to bring this to the salon, my nails always break and chip off at the ends. When I bring it, I never have an issue. This stuff is a miracle base coat. It's also not a bad top coat. It does what it needs to do. It's marginally glossy on normal polishes. It falls flat when you have grittier, glitter polishes though. The grittiness is kept at bay for about a day, then it pops up. But like I said, other than that, it's great. I currently am using it alone because I used a very bad nail polish that chipped in big chunks (OPI Absolutely Alice, do NOT recommend it!), and it's been keeping my nails nice and healthy until my next manicure.
I bought this at Stop & Shop. I'm not sure if that effected the integrity of the product but darn... It's terrible! First off, I LOVE the color. And I love OPI, for the most part. I go for a manicure ever week, and my nails are in very good condition. I was very surprised when the NEXT DAY it started chipping. In very large chunks. I even looked past the gritty texture, but I can't look past my nails right now. It's been 4 days, and only one of my nails has all the polish it started with. I've never thrown a polish away before, but this may be my first! I really wouldn't recommend this particular color...
Skincare - Face -L'Oreal - Skin Genesis Complexion Equalizer

I really wanted to like this. I have a few spots and some redness, and I was looking for something like this to fix it. The first few nights, it made my skin SO soft and nice. After a few days though, I ended up getting little white bumps all over my face. They were a little itchy. I stopped using this product, and they went away. Maybe I'm a little allergic to something in this.
Liquid -Rimmel - Stay Matte + SkinPure Complex Clarifying Matte Foundation

I liked it at first. Around the third time I put it on, I realized it gives me a horrible orangey color. It's thick, and makes me look very oily. I do NOT recommend this to anyone!
