I have medium/dark skintone and this is amazing on my skin! The greens work perfect with brown eyes. The gold also gives a nice pop. I have to say this palette will probably work on most people, but looks more natural on darker skintones. The lip color is definitely made for tan skin.
BB Cream -Garnier - BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector - Medium/Deep

I bought this on an impulse. Good sale going on. I have combo to dry skin so this is awesome in winter for my skin! It moisturizes my skin and looks fresh, not made up or cakey. Just top with some powder and it's good to go. I hear they do make a version now to for oily skin.
I just discovered this and LOVE it! It's a perfect dupe for mac studio tech! I got soft cinnamon which is a perfect match to nc42. It's very hard for me to find drugstore foundations that don't make my skin redish or that neutralize redness in my skin but this one is perfect!
Concealers -Almay - Clear Complexion Concealer + Treatment Gel

I LOVE this concealer! I was using a different brand acne concealer which was just medicine infused make up but I love that this one comes with the gel too for that extra punch. I usually get a few small pimples but always one BIG one that I really hate. This stuff shrank it within the day I put it on. Doesn't look dry or caking at all. As for the woman planning to use this as foundation? it's CONCEALER IT'S NOT GOING TO HAVE THE SAME CONSISTANCY AS FOUNDATION!
Liquid -Revlon - PhotoReady Airbrush Mousse Makeup
Faffinette89 6/9/2012 12:56:00 AM
wow I was surprised to see this have such a low rating. I loved this foundation. I think it's my new hg! This stuff doesn't sparkle or glitter at all. It just reflects light in all the right places to make it look like you have a flawless 'photoready' complexion. I do have a t-zone that normally gets shiny but it didn't with this foundation, nor did it emphasize any shininess. It lasts all day too! The consistency is very light and airy but it gives medium-full coverage and you can layer it if you need to. Also conceals redness. I apply this with a sonia kasuk beauty blender. I just use a pump or two of this and I'm all set.
I was running out of my kat von d concealer so I decided to try this. I usually used concealer under my eyes as I get bad dark circles and sometimes on redness. This stuff was better than the kat stuff, wish they had more colors though. I even sheered it out with some moisturizer once to use as foundation. For only $6 this is amazing. Not wasting $25 on kat anymore
Mascara -Physicians Formula - Organic Wear Jumbo Lash Mascara
Faffinette89 2/9/2012 1:16:00 AM
I think this is my new hg! I wanted to try an organic mascara and this one look cool. I have to say I love it! It adds just the right amount of volume and lenght and leaves my lashes soft to the touch. It's also very easy to remove with just water! I haven't had any smudging and I've accidently left this on when I go do high impact work outs.
I love rimmel lipsticks. They are the best drugstore lipstick imo in terms of color payoff and texture. I got number 8. This is a dusty rose color. A light pink but not dramatic at all. Great for everyday. The formula is very smooth. The packaging is super cute. It's matte black and says Kate with a heart on it in red.
I switched to this after using "beyond the zone" brand. This stuff doesn't smell and one bottle lasts way longer than btz did. I don't need to spray as much and it does what it says, cleans and volumizes. I found this at ulta for 6.99 but they often have coupons attached to them to get them even cheaper. Awesome dry shampoo! I use it about 3 times a week and wash my hair 3 days a week. Gets rid of oil and refreshes hair.

This is just what I was looking for. I don't like using other volumizing products because they leave my hair hard or wet. This is perfect! Great volume and texture. My only complaint is that it leaves your hands alittle sticky, but not bad enough to not buy it.

Misc Beauty Tools -Clean & Clear - Oil Absorbing Sheets
Faffinette89 6/28/2011 1:15:00 AM
I got these several times because it was all that was on the market and after using other brands I see why I don't like these. They definitely disturb make up. They do soak up oil but they pretty much take your make up off too. Wouldn't buy these again
Crème -mark - Min-A-Real Cream To Powder Foundation
Faffinette89 6/19/2011 6:01:00 PM
I just got this a few days ago. I love it! Finally I think I found something to replace my mac studio tech foundation. This foundation is also alittle more than half of what the mac is so it's not a bad price and has about the same amount. I also like that this foundation is mineral based and has the lumiskin complex. It really does make your skin look more luminescent without shimmer or glitter. The coverage is great, buildable if needed. Stays put, great to use with the mark primer. Will keep buying this instead of the mac edit: After using this a couple of weeks I'm surprised by the results! It actually brightened my skin and evened skintone like it claimed! Amazing. HG foundation
Styling Products -Regis - Design Line Volumizing Mousse
Faffinette89 6/7/2011 11:30:00 PM
I love this stuff! It's light, non-sticky and smells great! One bottle lasts a really long time. I put it just after I start blowdrying my hair and it adds great volume while leaving your hair soft. I also love that you can find this stuff at walmart too and it's usually buy one get one half off. Obvisiously the previous reviewer is novice to the price of salon products, this is on the cheap side.
I don't remember when I got this so I can't speak for the price. This product does require some warming up to blend so if they bring it back I hope they improve the formula. This does work to make a great smoky eye and can be used as a liner. Very easy smoky eye if you're a beginner or just want to save time. Stays put with a primer. Love not having to worry about fallout with creme shadow and is super portable. All you need is one brush to blend it out.
