Crème -Graftobian - High-Definition Glamour Color Creme Foundation

I bought the neutral 1 palette not knowing what color would match me and having neutral undertones, Bombshell was the closest match to my skin that i have ever had with any foundation and i have tried a lot, I use studio sculpt in NC15 and it's not quite right neither was colorstay in ivory so just for the color selection alone i love this product. but i feel like i wasted my money on the palette since i can't use the other colors. The coverage is pretty good but i do find i get better coverage with studio sculpt. There are things on my face that just cannot be covered like giant boxcar scars =[ The best thing about this stuff is i can just tap it into my problem areas with a round foundation brush and run out the door without worrying if it looks cakey or unnatural. When using it for a full face i set with cornstarch and have zero transfer.
The BEST lip balm i have EVER tried!!!!! I have tried lanisoh, aquphor,vaseline,burts bees,alba and a bunch of other chapsticks/balms and none have kept my lips moisturized, as soon as they wore off or sunk in my lips were dry again but not with dew kiss!! Even after it wears off my lips are still soft it does more than just give a beautiful sheen to my lips it really gives them long lasting moisture! and for under a dollar you can be damn sure i will be buying this forever! this is my fist ever HG product!
Conditioner -Suave - Professionals Rosemary Mint Conditioner

I use this for co-washing along with a nicer conditioner for my ends because this alone is not very hydrating, and i have super dry hair. I really love this JUST for co-washing my scalp it is not a great conditioner and i would never ever use with a shampoo but it does cleanse my scalp and hair nicely and my hair feels super soft and easy to manage plus it looks the healthiest it ever has since i started co-washing. You can pick up a huge bottle of this for less than 2 bucks at walmart so that is a huge plus!
This is by far my favorite eyeliner i have ever used, doing cat eyes or winged liner has never been so effortless and perfect looking! It stays on all day and never feathers or cracks!! If you hate messing with liquid eyeliner but love the look this is the way to go!
This is the first eye shadow primer i have tried and it definitely does what it's supposed to and it's only 1$! Pretty awesome! I have no creasing, smudging or running of my shadow or liner throughout the day with this on underneath
This is the BEST brush ever for applying foundation! I had tried several stippling brushes before coming across this one and they never made me look air brushed, this brush does! Best DS buy ever. Period. I use it with my MAC studio sculpt BTW

Oh how sad i am that i can no longer find this in the states! The smell is so amazing! Its one of my all time favorite scents and wish there was a perfume that smelled like it. The oil is moisturizing and the shimmer makes your skin luminous!
This is a pretty awesome product for 4 bucks! The little brush it comes with actually works well at filling in my patchy brows with precision, I bought the medium kit, i have dark brown hair but a very fair complexion so having my brows to dark makes them look really harsh and the medium is perfect
I have really awful acne and deep dark scarring on my lower face, mostly on my chin.And the past 8 months of my pregnancy its been even worse! I had tried every drugstore foundation before finally deciding to treat myself to a quality foundation (i was using colorstay for the coverage) I use Studio Sculpt with hard candys glamofluage concealer underneath and over top for extra ugly spots. I really love this stuff! My face looks bright and healthy when i wear it and a little goes a long way! My whole face is covered by a pea sized amount, i apply with a foundation brush and dust a little translucent powder over the top to increase the staying power. I might try some other foundations because thats what i do lol but i really love this stuff and for now its my HG

This is my new go-to scent since Soap&Glory quit selling the sweet almond spray oil in the states..still trying to convince myself to buy it online. The smell is amazing and it really lasts throughout the day, on my skin its more musky sweet when it mixes with my natural scent and i really love it, i don't know if it's the most moisturizing lotion out there but the smell is what hooked me

I remembered wearing this in high school but my skin wasn't as nasty then as it now. I started buying other things and just recently went back to it, i see now why i used to make my mom buy me this over and over again, it covers well and doesn't make me look orange which is always an issue i have with drugstore foundations, over all i like it more than any other drugstore foundation i have tried so far...and i have tried ALOT! i just wish it was a little cheaper and had better packaging

I really did not care AT ALL for this foundation, it made my skin look ashy and dry but somehow never set. It also extenuated my deep acne scars and fine lines. It was a waste of 10 dollars and my time

I love the packaging for this but it didn't give me great coverage. I did like the consistency and creamy lightweight feel but i have serious acne and scarring so without a serious concealer this would never work for me, ill keep it in the back of my makeup drawer for emergencies =)
Pressed Powders -L'Oreal - True Match Super-Blendable Powder
Elasinthe 10/9/2011 10:32:00 PM
This i by far my favorite pressed powder. I started using this in high school before my skin got really bad i needed full coverage foundation and i always end up going back to it, i do suggest putting your concealer on top after the powder has settled or else it will cake up. over all if i had perfect skin i would use this everyday but i dont so it is great for trips to the grocery store lol

I ordered a sample set of colors from whatshebuys.com for 7.50 because i have difficult to match skin, it came with 6 colors And a sample of the setting powder, pretty awesome! BUT i just cant get this stuff to work for me, none of the colors are a great match for my skin (i'm pale but i don't look as pale as i am, and i have a difficult undertone) anyways this made my skin look very dry and after several layers i still couldn't cover my acne scarring, i moisturized and worked at it for a while but it just didn't work for me..my search continues
