This is a perfect dupe for the coveted Nars Orgasm. After spending the big bucks on Nars one time, I spent so long trying to find a more affordable option since I use blush everyday and it was the perfect tone for me. Finally I don't have to look anymore. This is a perfect peachy pink tone and it gives my complexion such a natural glow. It is finely milled so it gives my cheeks a nice smooth look. A little definitely goes a long way. I find that I do have to reapply one time during the day but that could also be my addiction to blush :) Definitely get this if you are looking for a more affordable option to Nars. You will not be disappointed

FINALLY!!! I have found the PERFECT foundation. Having tried everything from Mac to Clinique, Estee Lauder, and drugstore brands this is by far the best. It doesn't break me out at all which is huge considering I have pretty sensitive and acne prone skin. Last year my skin was thrown out of whack and I still have some dark marks but once I put this on, you would never be able to tell. Usually within 2 hours of applying my foundation, my skin is like an oil slick but this foundation stays nice and matte all day. I only have to pat my forehead towards the end of a day. It's a bit pricey but a little goes a long way and it is totally worth every penny. Will definitely be buying this again.
My new HG blush! At first I was a bit skeptical because it kind of looks purpley in the package but the color that is goes on is gorgeous and it makes my cheekbones look amazing. DO NOT be put off by how the color looks in the compact! Just try it and guarenteed you will love it.
This is one of my all time fave shadows! I have fair olive toned skin and it is perfect for creating the ultimate smokey eye. Seriously, everytime I wear it I get AT LEAST one compliment. The other great thing about it is that you can layer it over other dark colors and it definitely creates depth.
This is my alltime FAVORITE moisturizer. Although sometimes I do need to take breaks buying it because it is on the expensive side. It is so perfect for my combination skin and t doesn't break me out at all. I have to be carefull with that because alot of moisturizers, after prolonged use, tend to break me out. Overtime it evens out my skin tone and it keeps my skin calm all day. The only thing I would change is the packaging. It comes in tube form so if your not careful, too much product can come out. I wish they made it in a pump.
At first it would significantly reduce a pimple but it never entirely got rid of it and eventually stopped working all together.

I LOVE this!! Everytime I would wear eyeshadow (especially a smokey eye) there would be a thick oily crease on my lids within 30 minutes!! This makes my shadow last all day long even in the summer! Its moderately priced and it lasts forver becasue you only need a little bit! I will definitely buy this again :)
After trying an arsenal of OTC products I decided to give this a try for my adult acne (never had a pimple my whole life and of course at 27 its all coming out) Anyways I gave it 5 months and I saw no significant difference in my complextion which really sucks. I know that there is no miracle products but for the price I figured I would see some difference. The bottles are so small. The treatment gel has lasted a long time but the moisturizer goes so fast. I do like the cleanser though. It really makes my skin feel super clean.

I have been "lucky" enough to now have adult acne and this really covers up my blemishes and the scars that are left behind after I pick at one (bad I know). It stays put all day too which is great for me because I really don't have to time to keep reapplying. I can see how others say this is drying in some cases. I have combo skin and on my dryer areas (chin) it gets a little flakey. All I do is put a thicker moisturizer on those areas and I am good to go. Its a little bit more pricey than regular drugstore brands but in the end it is worth it. Who wants to reapply foundation every couple of hours?
This is definitely my go to red lipstick. It is perfect for my fair/medium skintone. I am accustomed to wearing high drama red lipstick during the day (its my trademark) so this is perfect for me. Although it can be a bit drying, all I have to do is dab on a little burt's bees lip balm beforehand and I am good to go. When it wears off, it does have a bit of a pinkish tone but this doesn't bother me at all. I always keep this color stocked in my arsenal.
This is the most AMAZING conditioner. My salon also sells this so I didn't pay the actual amount since we get a pretty good discount. The second that you rinse it out you feel a huge difference in your hair. It makes it soooo smooth. Coming from a chronic flat ironer this is a miracle conditioner!
