Hands down the by far best eyelash curler on the market today. I have painfully straight eyelashes that point downwards that make my eyes look tired, but when I use this curler it looks like I'm wearing falsies and I look awake with super long lashes!
Pressed Powders -Maybelline - Dream Matte Pressed Powder

Works really well as a blotting powder to use for touch-ups during the day and to set your foundation. Is it the most wonderfull powder ever, well, no. But for the price and concidering that it is a drugstore product, it's the best one in it's price range by far. Doesn't give you any coverage, and yes if you do use to much you can look cakey.
If you like comforting bakery scents, you'll love this :). It smells like creamy chocolate, vanilla and honey. I always cut my bubble bars into smaller pieces and you can easily get 4 baths out of this one. On the downside it will crumble a lot when you cut it and it makes a mess - but it's wirth it. I crumble the piece I'm going to use on the bottom of the bathtub and then start running tha water as I lather up the bubbles. This really creates a lot of creamy and fluffy bubbles that I find hold for a long time. Be prepared though that the water will look muddy and disgusting.
My favorite drugstore lipgloss by far. The color is beautiful, the staying power is great and it's not too sticky. The quality of the packaging is good considering the price, but I just personally prefer packaging that doesn't have a wand that pushes air, bacteria and lipstick back into the actual lipgloss. If Revlon repackaged this into a tube the rating would easily be 5 lippies!
Who thought that such a cheap product could be of such great quality? This is truly a great eyeshadow. The texture is smooth and the pigmentation is high. The brown is a bit more red than you would think just looking at pictures. I like the sleek packaging, making it super easy to have in your makeup bag to work. I reach for this color all the time!
I love phyto shampoos, but I have to say that this one really wasn't that special. Yes it did clean my hair, but the day after it was just as oily as before. So I don't feel that it battled sebum any better than the other phyto shampoos. When I finnished the bottle I went back to Phytorhum which makes my hair look amazing and cleans it just as well as the Cedrat one.
Liquid -Clinique - Anti Blemish Solutions Liquid Make Up

This foundation oxidizes like crazy. After a while after application your face looks orange. I don't mean that I bought a shade with peach undertones, I mean it turns orange. needless to say it looks really unnatural. As for the anti blemish propoerties, I can just say that it didn't break me out but I'm not sure it did anything for the few spots I had when I bought it. I do love the packaging though. The light plastic packaging makes it easy to bring with you and the spout dispences just the right amount that you need. The staying power is mediocre, especially for what they claim the foundation can do.
There is actual glitter in this foundation which I find so strange! One day at work, I looked down and saw that my palms were covered in glitter. It puzzled me a lot and I couldn't understand where all that glitter came from. Then it hit me. The foundation was "shedding" glitter on me. Took a look in the mirror outside and I looked like a member of the Cullen family. So in my opinion, the amazing packaging and the ok coverage it gives just doesn't make up for you looking like a disco ball. But if you do live in Forks or Alaska and you're not going into the sun at all, you might want to try it out.
This works wonders for my hair! It is so airy, light, soft and shiny now thanks to Phyto. I just love it. I hate the smell, but it's so worth it for the results I get. Don't really care for the packaging either i have to say, but it does give the product I slight classier feel to it. But the best thing about it, is that it is all natural!
In terms of coverage (that I need) and staying power during the day, this is an absolute favorite. It gives such a natural and beautifully perfect finnish without looking caky and that you're wearing a mask. I just love it. The problem is that I can't use it for more than a day at a time and then I have to switch to another foundation, because it BREAKS me out like no other. So you should try it because it gives a beautiful result, but if you're prone to breaking out, you might want to ask for a sample before you buy the whole bottle.
Treatments (Eye) -Garnier - Skin Renew Anti-Puff Eye Roller

Did I think that this would diminish the darkness under my eyes? No. But I did think that the caffeine in this product would help my morning puffyness around the eyes, due to the diuretic properties of it. And that does really work. It really helps that is is cooling and soothing too. So if you don't think that this drugstore product is a miracle worker, you'll love it :).
I absolutely love this! It is hands down my HG concealer. The concistency is kind of watery at first, but when you apply it, it gets tacky very quickly before it sets. So you do need to blend it in quickly before it gets tacky. It's a good idea to do your eye makeup before you put on the concealer or the fall out will stick to it. The only thing I don't like about it, is the packaging. It comes with a pump that dispences way too much product than you need. This is powerful stuff and so pigmented that you don't need a whole lot, so it feels like you waste a lot of product due to the pump. But when you're not in a hurry and take the time to push the pump really carefully you get a "normal" amount on your finger. When you get the knack of getting a little product out - this is fenomenal.
Bought this thinking that I would find my HG drugstore foundation since SO many are raving about this. But I have to admit that I didn't fall in love with it. I DO love that I found a perfect match for my skin tone! I have combination to oily skin (oily t-zone and dry everywhere else). After a allready a couple of hours I had this unnatural dewey look, as if I was oily all over my face and that was the first time this ever happened since I just have an oily t-zone. I did finnish off with either MAC msf natural or Smashbox halo powder and I still looked oily all over...or rather that I had been sweating a bit all over my face. I'll just have to keep on looking for a good drugstore foundation.
I have to admit that I like this product for my work makeup. The color pigmentation is not that strong and the texture of most of the shadows is chalky. Another con is that the lighter shades just appear as the same color on your lid. I haven't had any problem with it fading off though. But I always prime my eyes with UDPP on top of foundation and concealer though. I like the color range too even if it yould be nice with some warmer colors. Some of the colors feel really smooth too when applying. Compared to the shimmer pallette the quality of the shadows are so so much better. I bought mine off e-bay so it was dirt cheap too!
Palettes -Coastal Scents - Ultra Shimmer 88 eye shadow palette

I will admit that it is really handy to have so many colors to choose from in one pallette. But the quality of the eyesshadow is so poor! And i know that people are thinking that you get the quality according to price, but come on. The shimmer is way to shimmery with large pieces of glitter instead of a sheen. There's so much fallout that settles in the fines lines under the eyes and the sahdow is chunky and doesn't go smoothly on the eyelid at all. Instead of just swiping the brush a couple of times, I have to spend time blending the base color on the lid. Loving the color range. Hating the quality. The darker colors are a little better than the lighter ones.
