I make a homemade mask and use it about once a week(should probably use it like 2-3 times). I eye ball all the measurements so sometimes i put to much in and get a tinge yellow after 20 minutes but i use a homemade lemon toner and it takes the discoloration right off(you see the yellow on the cotton ball). I make the mask with almond milk, oat flour, honey(love), turmeric and lately ive been adding cinnamon and nutmeg, it burns for the first five minutes but the results are worth it. The mask is all organic except when i add the cinnamon and nutmeg(haven't gotten around to buy organic ones yet). My face feels amazing after it. Apply the mask with a make up applicator or something it gets messy, leave it on for 20 minutes and then just rinse really well with warm water, the results are so good.My face feels awesome after, and looks great, and it evens out my tone as well. If anyone wants the exact recipe, inbox me, i think i have it somewhere.
I love lemon juice! I made a toner out of it with witch hazel and some water, it works wonders. I use fresh lemons and after im done squeezing them, I take the lemon and rub it all over my face like im washing it (throw some sugar on the lemon, rub in circular motions and viola you have a sugar scrub) I find that it works awesome and really clears up my skin and makes it less oily. Plus i feel like im not using all these harsh chemicals on my face.
I love this! I like that after an hour or so the smell changes and doesn't seem as sweet. It lasts forever. It seems a bit heavy for me, so i would prob wear it more in the winter than the summer. It also only takes a few sprays, you don't need to overload on it.

The standard by which i measure all my other perfumes! I have been using this since it came out, i absolutely love it, i get so many compliments on it. It smells so fresh and clean. I get a smile on my face when i smell it. It lasts forever too. Im a perfume junkie, if it smells good to me, i have to own it. This is my favorite bc it stays on all day and is just perfect. It is expensive but in all honesty you dont need a lot!
This has been my favorite chanel lip gloss for about 10 years, I started using it in high school. The color is amazing, its not sticky, and lasts pretty long. I like the the color is more on the sheer side, its really does give the perfect amount of color.
I have been using this product for years and it was my go to mascara until i came across YSL Faux Cils. I have thick lashes and I must say this makes them look more full and gives them great volume, it only takes about 1 or 2 coats to achieve that look for me. Some people complain that it takes more than that, the packaging itself says build-able volume(gotta read people), because some people may require more than 1 coat because everyone has different lashes. It does tend to be dry but i never find it clumpy, i use the waterproof version now, I've used both, honestly never had a complaint. The black out version of diorshow is prob the best.Ived used them all, and i don't think you can go wrong with any of them.

I swear by this hair spray! It kept my hair in place for a wedding all day when it 105 degrees out, the brides hair fell flat before mine did. Its a great product, keeps my hair in place and adds volume. I have yet to find anything that works as well this.

Ok so this product does make my lips stay soft but its the glitter part that i dont like. It feels kinda grainy sometimes like i have crumbs stuck to my lips, especially when it starts to fade it becomes rough. Maybe a less shimmery color would be better.

I have used so many mascaras and I dont know why i bother trying any other brand. I have used Dior show(every single version of it), Chanel,lancome and even drug store brands like rimmel(almost as good as diorshow FYI) but nothing compare to YSL. Its so expensive so im always trying to find something comparable for under $30 bucks but i don't know why i bother. This is simply the best. I recently got 3 of them at Nordstrom for their mascara event, buy 2 get one free. It really makes my eyes pop, and makes my lashes look more voluminous. I have long thick eye lashes to begin with so this really makes them stand out. I recommend this to everyone. I cant believe that some people don't like it, ive never heard of anyone not liking it.
I have been using this on and off for over a year now(sometimes i forget to charge it so hence the on and off) but it is AMAZING. I use it with my Clinque cleanser, and the new acne brush head(my favorite so far, I have used the normal and sensitive ones). It makes my skin look and feel amazing, clears up my skin within a week, and you can really tell your skin is clean after using it because when i use the toner after i clean my face, the cotton ball is not dirty at all like it sometimes is when i don't use the Clarisonic. This was one of the best investments i have made. I recommend it to everyone. I am even thinking of buying the MIA for when i travel.
