So around 2 years ago, I had a severe allergic reaction that made my skin sensitive to EVERYTHING, since then I haven't been wearing any sunscreen because I consider sun damage preferable to walking around with inflamed rashes. However, I discovered this when my derm introduced me to vaniply and I did some research into the company.This is literally the single sunscreen that I don't react to. I strongly recommend this if you have very sensitive skin. It does have a greasy finish but I just brush a layer of mineral powder on top. Also, if you want to test for reactions before commiting, you can email and request a sample pack from psico, the company.
Eyeliner -Bare Escentuals - Buxom Insider Eyeliner

I received this as part of $10 black friday set that came with the liner in Chocolate Citrine and Buxom Lash. I intended to give it to my mother but ended up taking it back because of the texture. The texture is soft and creamy and pigmented and especially perfect for tightlining the bottom rims of your eyes. I only wish I had gotten this in onyx cuz when I do tightline, I go for the blackest I can find. The texture of this pencil exceeds that of Mac Powerpoints
I've been using this product since high school. Everytime I feel a cold sore coming, or have a cold sore, or have any sort of irritation, itching or rawness, I put this on during the night and by the following morning, my lips will be back to normal. If you are irritated by menthol, I would avoid this. However, the menthol calms irritation on my lips and gives a wonderful cooling sensation that gives me relief. It also has a short, relatively good ingredient list. I use it more as a medicine for my lips than as a cosmetic/moisturizing aid but I wouldn't be caught dead without this during allergy season or the winter. HG night lip treatment and dirt cheap( i get mine for a dollar!!)
Eyeliner -Bare Escentuals - Buxom Lashliner -- Leatherette

So first off, the eyelash claims are definitely true. The length and thickness of my lashes improved noticeably, which is the main reason I would buy this. Some cons are that it dries up quickly so that i have to dip in more than once to get a solid dramatic black line. It is a dark black but not the blackest black i have ever used. Also, the price for one pot ($18) is relatively steep. Overall I would repurchase again because of the eyelash growth , lasting power, and application but I'm also eyeing the Physician's Formula Eyeboosting Serum+ Eyeliner as a cheaper alternative.
I have problems with sticking with one lip product when there are so many options out there with pretty packaging and I've never bought any lip product more than once (except for Blistex Blue pot ointment for when I get cold sores) but I'm on my second jar of this. I don't understand how they formulated this kind of texture and color but I can swipe this on my lips without using a mirror and there will be no bleeding, no running outside liplines. It effectively got rid of all my dry flaky lips and the really gross white goeey residue I get after putting lipgloss. Lastly, the color is just incredible for my skin (pale peachish asian warm with pink tones) and brings out the color in my cheeks. Definitely will repurchase. HG.
Mascara -Bare Escentuals - Flawless Definition mascara

At first, I had a love/hate session with this, because, as I have sparse asian lashes, I tend to od on the layering (5+ coats). My lashes would look slightly clumpy, dry out, and at least 1 would fall out at the end of the day. but after i cut back on the layers, I realized this looks best 2-3 coats best after curling. It defines perfectly without clumps, seriously the first time I have encountered this except with Clinique naturally glossy mascara. If I had to describe this, I would describe it as Clinique High Impact Mascara with infinitely better definition and anticlumping factor. Sexy, dramatic but not overdone, and perfect for your everyday look (if you want to look great everyday lol). Also, interestingly enough, not only have my lashes stop falling out since I reduced layering but they seemed to grow longer everytime I take it off??!!! just my imagination???
