This is my HG foundation. I've been using it for roughly four years and can't imagine using anything else. I use the oily/combo. formulation and find that it does help to keep my oil at bay (I use a primer and a finishing powder, so I think it's more of the combination of all the products that works, but nonetheless...) It's full coverage which is great, and I find it easy to blend. I wear Buff and it's the perfect shade for me. All in all a GREAT drugstore foundation!!
This is absolutely my HG brow kit. I don't use the brush, but the tweezers are super handy to have around. I really don't have anything bad to say about this kit, I really love it! And the price is unreal (I think I got it on sale for less than $4!!) The powder and wax kit makes it so much easier to achieve the perfect brow, especially compared to the pencil I used to use. The shade is quite a bit darker than what I was used to, but I'm really enjoying the full strong brow look! Thanks to this kit, I'm so vain about my brows! I think the kit will last me forever too, I've used it religiously for over a month and haven't even made a dint in it! I'm in love with the product and would recommend it to any brunettes who want rocking good brows!
This is my first palette, and so far I'm very pleased. The shadows are very soft, blendable and easy to work with (especially for someone like me who rarely wears eyeshadow). The packaging is awesome, the metal case is heavy and well put together which screams quality. The colors are fairly close to Urban Decay's Naked palette, but the price tag is much lower. I really love the brown tones especially Pray For Me. I'm even loving the more coppery tones which I never thought I would be able to wear on my eyes, but the colors all work so well together. The only flaw is <3 the terribly chunky glittery pink, which is unwearable to be honest (unless you love glitter, or are preteen). Other than the one shadow misstep, I'm really loving playing around with this palette and hope to add some more Kat Von D palettes to my makeup drawer.
I have terrible dark circles and tried my fair share of concealers, and this is by far the best! Don't get my wrong, my dark circles are still there, I just don't look like a raccoon anymore! Glamoflage is so pigmented and easy to blend (compared to Benefit's erase paste - my first high end purchase - which I ended up giving to a friend because I disliked it so much). A little goes a long way (I put it over primer, which I find makes it easier to blend with less tug and pull on my eyes), and it's soo cheap! I love that it comes in a tube and not a pot that you have to dig into with a little stick. I've had my tube for probably about 8 months (I put on two layers of it everyday!) and I'm not even half way through it! I love this product soo much I have a brand new tube waiting in a drawer!

I absolutely love this lotion! I've been using it for probably about 7 years now, and every time I try something different I always end up going straight back to this lotion. It's just the right consistency, not too thick and not too runny. I love the smell, it's just enough scent without being overpowering. The pump in the larger bottle is great, and it's super reasonably priced. I use it every time I get out of the shower/bath and it leaves my skin moisturized and soft (I even get compliments :))
