Moisturizers -La Mer - Creme de la mer moisturizer

I have used this product for about two years. Although I don't think it's a "miracle" (for me anyway), it is my go to moisturizer for the harsh New England winter months. My skin dries out quickly in the winter and this cream keeps it well hydrated without being oily (if I use it in the summer I break out, so it is definitely only a winter cream for my skin). You really need to warm it up to be able to pat it into your skin, but it doesn't take that long. If you are worried about the price, go to a counter and see if they will give you a sample to try out before you spend the money. Everyone's skin is different, my advice is go and talk to one of the La Mer sales people, they are super knowledgeable and are really there to help.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero

I love this eyeliner and I find it lives up to its promises. If you allow it to set it is waterproof, but it isn't always completely smudge proof. Mostly, but not completely. If I have a long day and rub my eyes alot it will smear, but not with the occasional swipe. "Zero" the black shade is worst for this the other colors don't usually smear at all. The ease of use and variety of pretty colors make it my favorite.
It feels really soft on my face and is big and fluffy!! No shedding!! yay!! Even though I like how it feels, it seems a little too fluffy. I used to to apply my Make up Forever HD finishing powder (loose powder). I dont like using it for my compact powder as I feel that the hairs are too loose....I think a denser brush would work for compact powders. But if you do have loose powder, this would be GREAT! And the size is so cute !!
Misc Beauty Tools -Clean & Clear - Oil Absorbing Sheets

This product is good for the price you are paying for. 50 sheets in a packet, lasts a good amount of time. This blotting sheets takes off oil but usually my husband has to use two, wish it did its job in one sheet. Overal pretty good product, better than the Elf $1 blotting sheets.
works pretty well as a toner/mask combo! Asprin is actually a exfoliator when it is crushed up and used on the skin. Nice substitute when I don't feel like buying $5 face masks!
I got this foundation as a last resort when I couldn't find my Revlon color stay. As far as matching goes 110 is a very close match. But... this foundation is much to light coverage for me. Especially with my acne scars and it is so GREASY! and 10 minutes outside this will sweat off. Ontop of all of that I'm certain it has broken my out even more than I was! Gross! I recommend this for someone who lives in cold weather and needs light coverage.
